
Chopping
For the best, most uniform result, the food should be cut or broken up into pieces of
equal size before processing.
More uniform processing results are achieved if the container is not overloaded.
Minced meat
 To make minced meat, first cut the meat into cubes of approx.2 cm squares
before processing.
Vegetables
 Peel and quarter vegetables such as onions before processing.
Mixing
 The amount for processing varies according to the viscosity of the foods
processed.
Adding ingredients
 First add the dry ingredients such as flour in the bowl before processing.
 The ingredients do not have to be mixed before processing.
 Liquid ingredients can be added through the feeding tube while processing.
Note: When processing sauces or semi-liquid ingredients it may be necessary to switch


Pulse function
 With the pulse operation, the appliance runs at the highest speed.

Feeding tube

 Cut the prepared foods a little smaller if necessary, so that they pass easily
through the filling inlet.
 Add the items for filling as vertically as possible simultaneously in the filling inlet.
 Compress the items evenly with the stopper. The degree of pressure influences
the concentration of the cut food.
Only use the pusher for further additions. Never reach in the feed tube with ones fingers.
