of fire, electric shock, and/or injury, basic safety precautions
should always be followed, including the following:

Base, Motor Block, cord, or plug in water or other liquid. To
clean, wipe exterior with a damp cloth.

by or near children.

or after the appliance malfunctions or is dropped or damaged in any manner. Return appliance to the nearest authorized service facility for examination, repair, or adjustment.

■ Do not use outdoors.
■ Do not let cord hang over edge of table or counter, or touch
hot surfaces.

POLARIZED PLUG This appliance has a polarized plug—one blade
is wider than the other. To reduce the risk of
electric shock, this plug will fit into a polarized
outlet only one way. If the plug does not fit fully
into the outlet, reverse it. If it still does not fit,
contact a qualified electrician. Do not attempt to
defeat this safety feature by modifying the plug
in any way.

Before using for the first time, wash Bowl, Cover,
and Knife Blade in warm, sudsy water and dry
