Assembly and Use
of Blending Rod
Know Your
Immersion Blender
Ensure the Motor Base is unplugged.
Attach Blending Rod to Motor Base by
aligning the arrow on the Motor Base with
the unlock graphic on the blending rod.
Turn counterclockwise until the arrow on
the Motor Base aligns with the lock graphic
on the Blending Rod. (see figure 1)
Place food in suitable container for mixing
(beaker, bowl, or stockpot). For best results
solid foods should be no larger than
1/2" cubes.
Plug into 120-volt 60 Hz AC only outlet.
Immerse the Blending Rod into your
ingredients. Always start on Low Speed to
process your ingredients. If more power is
needed, simply press the High Speed
button. Slowly move the rod up, down and
sideways through the food . Note: Never lift
the Blending Rod attachment out of your
ingredients while the unit is running to
avoid splattering.
Do not operate the motor continuously
for more than one minute when using
the Blending Rod. Simply pulse to your
desired consistency.
When you are finished, simply release the
Speed Control Button, unplug the Motor
Base, twist the Blending Rod clockwise

Suggested Uses
Helpful Hints
This Immersion Blender can be used in hot liquids, always use
extreme care. To avoid splashing when using the Immersion Blender
in a saucepan, insert the Blending Rod into the pan first, while
holding the Blender straight up and down. Start out with Low Speed
first. Caution: Do not tilt or lift the Immersion Blender out of the
pan while the motor is running, as a serious burn or injury can occur
from food splatter.
To puree foods, a certain amount of liquid is needed. Add
cooking liquid, broth, juice, milk, or cream, until desired consistency
is reached.
For thorough blending, move blade up and down in mixture until smooth.
You will achieve better mixing results if you use deep, tall containers.
For easy cleanup, unplug Immersion Blender and rinse under running
water immediately after using.
Before turning the appliance on, immerse the Immersion Blender
attachment into the prepared ingredients, thus ensuring they will not
spill over.
For greater efficiency, move the appliance in small outward spiraling
circles while mixing, without touching the bottom of your container
with the Blending Rod attachment.
The Blending Rod attachment cannot blend hard or fibrous
ingredients efficiently unless they are no larger than 1/2" cubes.
Soft ingredients can be up to 1 inch cubes.
Some foods require a small amount of liquid to allow them to move
freely around the blades. Soft or wetter foods require less liquid,
while dry ingredients require more liquid. Add the liquid a little at a
time until the mix gains the required consistency.
When using the Immersion Blender, ensure the blades are fully
immersed to avoid splashing.
Your Immersion Blender comes with a fixed multi-purpose blade,
which allows the unit to be used in a variety of containers.
Caution: Blades are sharp. Handle with care.
Beat cream, whip egg whites,
puddings, sauces, frostings and
other airy, foamy mixtures. When
using, move Blending Rod up and
down to draw air in. Use a tall,
narrow container for best results
when foaming milk, making cream
and whipping egg whites.
Mix and stir shakes, drinks, omelet
batters, sauces and emulsions. Use
for pancake batter, gravies and
Cut, chop, and crush raw or cooked
meat and hard vegetables.Grind
cooked meat for use in recipes such
as casseroles or chicken salad.

Care & Cleaning
figure 2
Unplug the motor base from the outlet.
Remove the Blending Rod Attachment
from the Motor Base for cleaning by
turning it clockwise until the arrow on the
Motor Base is aligned with the unlock
graphic on the Blending Rod. See Figure
2. Clean the Blending Rod in warm, soapy
water. Caution: Blades are sharp. Handle
with care. Do not immerse the Motor
Base, cord or plug in water. Wipe the
Motor Base with a damp cloth only.
If food particles are not easily rinsed
off the Blending Rod, place a drop of
dish detergent in a tall mixing container
with one cup of warm water. Attach the
Blending Rod to the Motor Base and
plug cord into outlet. Immerse the blade
portion of the Blending Rod and operate
the unit for about 10 seconds. Unplug and
rinse under hot water, then dry.
Simply wipe the Motor Base clean with
a damp cloth. Never hold the Motor Base
under running water or immerse it in
any liquid.
Do not use pointed or sharp objects to
remove food particles.
Important: Do not try to sharpen the cutting
edges of the Blending Rod blade. They have
been precision honed at the factory and will
be damaged by any attempted sharpening.

This classic Provençal mayonnaise takes its name from the French
word for its key ingredient, garlic. If you have health concerns about
making mayonnaise from raw eggs, consider this statement from the
American Egg Board: “There have been warnings against consuming
raw or lightly cooked eggs on the grounds that the egg may be
contaminated with Salmonella, a bacteria responsible for a type of
foodborne illness. Healthy people need to remember that there is
a very small risk and treat eggs and other raw animal foods
accordingly. Use only properly refrigerated, clean, sound-shelled,
fresh, grade AA or A eggs. Avoid mixing yolks and whites with the
shell.” Alternatively, start with about 1 1/2 cups of good-quality
bottled mayonnaise and blend into it pureed garlic, Dijon mustard,
and lemon juice.
Makes about 2 cups
Appetizers to Main Dishes
1 tablespoon chopped garlic
1/4 cup chopped basil
2 extra-large raw egg yolks
Freshly ground white pepper
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 1/2 to 2 cups safflower oil

On a floured surface, roll the pasta as thin as possible. Brush half of
the dough with the egg wash. Place 30 mounds of the mousse, on
the pasta, 3 inches apart. Cover the mounds with the uneggwashed
pasta sheet and press the dough together around each ravioli. With

dill and the minced shallot until 1/4 cup liquid remains. Add the
cream and reduce it by half. Slowly whisk in the butter, a little at a
time, until all of it is incorporated. Season to taste with salt, pepper

and sauté them until al dente. Season to taste with salt and pepper
and reserve.
Add a little salt to the water, then the ravioli, and cook for 5 to 6
minutes. Cut 1 ravioli open to see if the mousse is done. It should be
barely cooked through as it will continue to cook in the sauce. Drain
the ravioli.
