WARNING: The Blades on the attachments
contained with this processor are very sharp.
Care must be taken when handling during use
or cleaning.
Pushers (7), (8)
The processor comes with two Pushers for use
when shredding or slicing with the Discs.
• For coarser chopping, use the pulse button for a
few seconds and monitor food texture.
• Pre-cut larger pieces to make them fit into the
feed tube. When chopping hard foods (eg. meat
or cheese) cut into 1 inch / 2.5cm cubes.
• For shredding, place food horizontally into the
feed tube, for slicing, place the food vertically.
• When slicing carrots, place 2 at a time in the
feeder tube to keep upright.
• Your Food Processor is not designed to grind
coffee beans, bones, ice, liquify vegetables or
slice cooked eggs or meat.
• If any plastic parts should discolor due to the
types of food processed, clean with a little
vegetable oil.
Care and cleaning
When slicing long thin objects such as carrots,
courgettes or celery, leave the Large Pusher (8) in
the Feed Tube and place the food in the centre
hole of the Pusher. During use, use the Small
Pusher (7) to press the food into the disc.
Switch the processor off and unplug from the
electrical outlet.
All accessories and processor tools can be
washed in hot soapy water except for the Main
Unit (6).
WARNING: Extreme care must be taken when
washing the metal blades as these are
extremely sharp.
Pulse Button
The Pulse Button (11) on the processor allows
you to run the processor on quick intermittent
bursts. This is ideal when using the Serrator Blade
(13) to process hard vegetables as it allows the
contents of the Bowl (4) to fall back into the path
of the Serrator Blades.
Discs (15), (16)
The processor comes with two discs for grating,
slicing, chopping and shredding foods. These
discs are double sided, each with a side for both
thick and thin slicing / shredding. When placing
the disc within the processor for use, place the
side of the disc you wish to use facing up.
Clean the Main Unit with a damp cloth.
