IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS
When using electrical appliances, basic safety precautions should always be followed, including the following:
1. Read and save all instructions.
2. To protect against risk of electrical shock, do not immerse base,
motor, cord, or plug in water or other liquid.
3. Close supervision is necessary when any appliance is used by
or near children.
4. This appliance should not be used by children.
5. Unplug cord from outlet when not in use, before putting on
or taking off parts, and before cleaning.
6. Avoid contacting moving parts.
7. Do not operate any appliance with a damaged cord or plug or
after the appliance malfunctions or is dropped or damaged in
any manner. Call our toll-free customer service number for
information on examination, repair, or electrical or mechanical
adjustment.
8. The use of attachments not recommended or sold by the appliance manufacturer, may cause fire, electric shock, or injury.
9. Do not use your food processor if any part is broken.
10. Do not use appliance outdoors.
11. Do not let cord hang over edge of table or counter, or touch hot
surfaces.
12. Keep hands and utensils away from moving blade and disc while
processing food to reduce the risk of severe personal injury
and/or damage to the food processor. A rubber scraper may be
used but ONLY when the food processor is not running.
13. The blade and disc are sharp. Handle carefully. Store out of reach
of children.
14. To reduce the risk of injury, never place cutting blade or disc on
base without first putting bowl properly in place.
15. Be certain lid is securely locked in place before operating appliance.
16. Never feed food into food chute by hand. Always use the food
pushers.
17. Do not attempt to defeat the lid interlock mechanism.
18. Make sure the blade or disc has come to a full stop before
removing lid.
19. To reduce the risk of injury, be sure to insert or remove blade and
disc using hubs provided for this purpose. Use caution when
removing blade and disc from the bowl, when emptying the
bowl, and when cleaning.
20. Be sure to turn switch to OFF position after each use. Always use
the pushers to clear the food chute. When this method is not possible, turn the motor off and disassemble unit to remove the
remaining food.
21. The appliance is not intended for commercial, professional, or
industrial use. It is designed and built exclusively for household
use only.
22. Never use appliance for a longer period or with a larger amount
of ingredients other than that recommended by appliance
manufacturer.
23. The maximum rating of this unit is based on using the chopping/
mixing blade. Using the slicing/shredding disc may draw significantly less power.
24. Do not place on or near a hot gas or electric burner or in a heated
oven.
25. Do not use appliance for other than intended use.

OTHER CONSUMER SAFETY INFORMATION
This appliance is intended for household use only.
WARNING! Shock Hazard: This appliance has a polarized plug (one
wide blade) that reduces the risk of electric shock. The plug fits only
one way into a polarized outlet. Do not defeat the safety purpose of
the plug by modifying the plug in any way or by using an adapter. If
the plug does not fit, reverse the plug. If it still does not fit, have an
electrician replace the outlet.
The length of the cord used on this appliance was selected to reduce
the hazards of becoming tangled in or tripping over a longer cord.
If a longer cord is necessary, an approved extension cord may be
used. The electrical rating of the extension cord must be equal to or
greater than the rating of the appliance. Care must be taken to arrange
the extension cord so that it will not drape over the countertop or tabletop where it can be pulled on by children or accidentally tripped over.
To avoid an electrical circuit overload, do not use another high-wattage
appliance on the same circuit with your food processor.

Tips and Techniques
• For a more uniform consistency, start with pieces of food
that are similar in size. Cut food
into 1-inch (2.5-cm) pieces
before processing with
chopping/mixing blade and
leave room in the bowl for the
food to be tossed around.
• This food processor is excellent to chop, mix, slice, or
shred most foods. However, to
maintain peak performance, do
not use your food processor
for the following: grinding
grain, coffee beans, or spices;
slicing frozen meat; or crushing ice.
• When chopping foods, pulsing
on and off will produce the
best results.
• Operating time will depend
on quantity of food being
processed. Most foods can be
sliced, chopped, or shredded
in seconds. If unit is operated
for 2 minutes continuously, let
the processor rest about 4
minutes before continuing.
Processing Charts
• Do not puree or mash starchy
vegetables like potatoes as
they are easily overprocessed
and will turn gummy.
Disc attachments are reversible and labeled. This label should face
UP for the desired function. When using disc attachments, do not
process past the MAX LEVEL on the bowl.
ATTACHMENT
FOODS
• To slice or shred cheese, select
firm cheese like cheddar,
Monterey Jack, or Swiss. For
best results, process cheese
that is well-chilled.
Chopping/Mixing Blade
Chop: nuts, meat, garlic, onions, peppers, celery,
herbs, bread (for crumbs), crackers
Mince/Puree: vegetables, fruit
Mix: salad dressings
Puree: soups, sauces
Grate: cheese such as Parmesan (chilled)
Slicing Disc
(slicing side facing UP)
Cucumbers, apples, mushrooms, carrots, potatoes,
cabbage, tomatoes, pepperoni, peppers, radishes,
firm cheeses (chilled)
Shredding Disc
(shredding side facing UP)
Cabbage, potatoes, carrots, cheese (chilled)
• The reversible slicing/shredding
disc has a slicing blade on one
side and shredding teeth on
the other. The name stamped
on the blade, facing up, is the
function selected. Place on
motor shaft with desired cutting edge facing up.
• To julienne vegetables, slice
and then remove from bowl.
Restack the vegetables. Pack
into food chute with slices
vertical. Slice again to make
matchstick-cut vegetables.
For best results do not exceed the following amounts when
chopping, mincing, or pureeing with the chopping/mixing blade.

Troubleshooting
POTENTIAL PROBLEM
PROBABLE CAUSE
Unit does not operate
on any speed or Pulse.
• Is the unit plugged in? Does the outlet work?
• Are the bowl and lid locked in place? See How to Use sections.
Food is not sliced or
shredded uniformly.
• Packing too much food in the food chute or pushing too hard on the food pushers may cause the
processed food to be irregularly sliced or shredded. Refer to the food processing charts for
recommended sizes and quantities.
Unit stops and will
not come back on.
• Are the bowl and lid locked in place? They may have moved slighty during processing. See How to
Use section.
• Is the outlet still working? Check it by plugging in a working lamp or other appliance. You may have
overloaded the circuit and blown a fuse or tripped the circuit breaker.
• Turn unit OFF, allow to stand for 3 to 4 minutes, and then turn back ON. If none of these suggestions
correct the problem, DO NOT attempt to repair the unit. Call the Customer Service number to get the
name of your nearest Authorized Service Center.
Unit has a burning smell.
• There may be a residue left on the motor from the manufacturing process, causing a slight odor
during initial use. This will go away. If a strong odor or any visible smoke appears, unplug unit and
IMMEDIATELY call the Customer Service number.
Motor seems weak.
• Are you using the recommended food size and quantity to be processed? Refer to the Processing
Charts for recommended food sizes and speeds.
