not fit, contact a qualified electrician. Do
not attempt to modify the plug in any way.
2)Longer detachable power cords or
extension cords are available and may
be used if care is exercised in their use.
3)If a long detachable power cord or
extension cord is used,
a) The marked electrical rating of the
extension cord should be at least as
great as the electrical rating of the
appliance,

with a tamper-resistant screw to prevent
removal of the outer cover. To reduce
the risk of fire or electric shock, do not
attempt to remove the outer cover. There

T IP S AN D T EC HN IQ UE S
• The Lean Green Prep Machine is excellent to slice and shred most foods. For
best results, do not use your food processor for grinding grain, coffee beans,
or spices; or slicing meat or frozen foods.
• Operating time will depend on quantity of food being processed. Most foods
can be sliced, grated, or shredded in seconds. If unit is operated continuously
for an extended period of time, let the processor rest about 10 minutes
before continuing.
• Cut bottoms of food so they are flat in the food chute, helping to slice and
shred the food more evenly
• To slice or shred cheese, use only firm cheese like Cheddar or Swiss that
has been chilled for at least 30 minutes. Cheese should be processed
immediately after being removed from the refrigerator. Soft cheese like
mozzarella should be placed in the freezer for 30 minutes prior to processing
to ensure it is firm enough for shredding.
• Use gentle pressure when processing foods as pushing the pusher too hard
may make foods become soft or not properly slice/shred.
• To prevent browning of some sliced fruits, mix 1 Tablespoon lemon juice
with one cup of water. Soak 3-5 minutes; drain fruit and pat dry with a paper
towel. Refrigerate fruit immediately.

F ROZE N D ESS E RT ATTAC HM E N T
• For best results when using the frozen dessert attachment:
• To prep bananas or frozen fruit, peel the fruit and freeze in zip top bag
for 24 hours prior to use. Spotted bananas work best.
• Use frozen fruit that has been thawed for 8-12 minutes or that has been
microwaved for twenty seconds. Microwave results may vary depending
on settings and amount of fruit. Do not use fruit with pits. Do not use ice.
• When using bananas with additional frozen fruit, alternate between
banana halves and other fruit for a more even mixture.
• Gently rotate the bowl while processing to create a frozen swirl.
• For an indulgence, add candy pieces to bananas only.
• For an ice cream blend, add your favorite flavor of ice cream or frozen
yogurt and ice cream toppings to the chute, starting with a scoop of ice
cream, followed by topping and repeat.

jamming
Switch the appliance off and unplug it. Dismantle the
appliance, clean it, assemble it and start again.
Food is not
sliced or
shredded
uniformly
Packing too much food in the food chute or pushing
too hard on the food pusher may cause the food to be
irregularly sliced or grated.

Is the outlet still working? You may have overloaded the
circuit and blown a fuse or tripped the circuit breaker.
Unplug unit, allow to stand for 10 minutes and then
press ON. Check by plugging in a working lamp or other
appliance. If none of these suggestions correct the problem,
DO NOT attempt to repair the unit. Call Customer Service
number at 1-800-231-9786
Unit has a

There may be a residue left on the motor from the
manufacturing process, causing a slight odor during the
initial use. This will go away. If a strong odor or any visible
smoke appears, unplug unit IMMEDIATELY and call the
Customer Service Number

shredded well
Cheese should be processed immediately after being
removed from the refrigerator. Soft cheese like mozzarella
should be placed in the freezer for 30 minutes prior to
processing to ensure it is firm enough for grating
Fruits or
vegetables are
not slicing or
shredded
Fruits or vegetables should be firm and not overripe. Store
