1) and 2) Operate the same way for the bowl
attachment.
2) Then, turn it back to
the right. The magnet
bar/handle should come
to a stop at the front of
the motor base. The
bowl, when properly
assembled should be
just off and level with
the top surface of the
motor base.
3) Place the basket on
the specific bowl delivered with the citrus juicer
attachments and rotate
until it clicks. You will
notice that the magnet of
the basket is directly
above the magnetic bar / handle.
4) Place the cone onto the motor shaft and it should
drop into place just off the surface of the basket.
5) Push the on button, and with a firm grip on the
fruit, press it down onto the cone. When the juice
has been exctracted, press the off button.
• VEGETABLE PREPARATION ATTACHMENT
The vegetable preparation attachment consists of
two detachable parts : the continuous feed attachment and the continuous feed lead.
1) With the motor base
facing you, fit the continuous feed attachment
onto the motor base; the
exit chute should be on
your right. When first
placed onto the motor
base, the attachment will
be off-center to the left.
• Position 2 : Using the cylindrical hopper.
In this case, the grid
must be positioned so
that the blades are
vertically aligned with
the tube. (You must be
able to see the grid
blades when looking
into the tube).
If you have chosen the
dicing combination :
i.e. a grid and a specific
slicing disc.
Only the specific 8 mm
and 10 mm discs can be
fitted with a dicing grid.
Position the dicing grid
in the vegetable preparation bowl.
2) Turn the attachment
back to the right until it
comes to a stop, and is
aligned with the top of
the motor base.
3) Place the white
discharge plate onto the
motor shaft. It should fall
into place just off the
bottom of the continuous
feed attachment.
4) Place the cutting plate
of your choice onto the
discharge plate. It may
be necessary to rotate
the plate until it drops
fully onto the discharge
plate.
• INSTALLING THE DICING GRID:
The grid must be positioned according to the
feeding hopper used. Failure to do so, can lead
to jamming and motor damage.
• Position 1 : Using the large hopper.
In this case, the
dicing grid should be
positioned so that its
blades are vertically
aligned with the
hopper. (You must be
able to see the grid
blades when looking
into the hopper.)
Next fit the appropriate
slicing disc and screw the
slicer on the motor shaft
with the butterfly nut.
INSTALLING THE FRENCH FRIES GRID :
Specially designed slicing
plates and matching grids
have been developed for
making French fries. Two
sizes are available: 8x8
and 10x10.
With the discharge plate in
place on the motor shaft,
place the French fry grid
into the continuous feed
attachment with the vertical
blades aligned toward the
discharge chute. If the grid is not in the correct
position, jamming and motor damage may occur.
7
Place the matching
slicing plate onto the
discharge plate. You
may need to rotate the
plate a bit until it drops
into place on the
discharge plate. Tighten
the plate-securing knob
by turning it clockwise.
• BOWL ATTACHMENT
EMULSIFY
The cutter bowl is used for grinding, kneading,
pureeing, blending, mixing, and emulsifying. Before
placing the product in the bowl some
products such as meats and cheeses should be
precut into 1-2 inch portions. When filling the bowl,
allow space above the product for circulation.
5) Place the continuous feed lead onto the
continuous feed attachment, and rotate it back to
the right until it is aligned with the continuous feed
attachment.
There are two ways to run your machine : chopping, using a quick start/stop action with the pulse
button or running continuously for a fine chop or
puree. To obtain a uniform chop of products such
as meats and cheeses, begin with a uniformly portioned product. Pulse the machine until the desired
result is reached. Then, if a puree or fine chop is
desired, press the on button, and allow the machine
to run until the product is the right consistency.

• VEGETABLE PREPARATION ATTACHMENT
The vegetable preparation attachment is used for
slicing, grating, waved slicing, julienne, and pulping.
The vegetable preparation attachment consists of
two feed openings :
- one large feed opening for cutting vegetables such
as cabbage, celeriac, etc.
- a cylindrical feed opening for long vegetables and
high-precision cutting.
For optimum cutting, use this section as a guide.
Do not attempt to run frozen products through the
cutting plates.
Do not put anything other than food products into
the feed openings.
Do not remove attachments while the motor is
running.
Do not apply excess pressure to the food pushers :
This can cause damage to the motor and other
parts.
HOW TO USE THE LARGE FEED OPENING
Raise the pusher handle, and fill the opening with
the product. If the opening is overfilled the machine
will not operate. Lower the pusher, and press the on
button. The pusher must be in the feed opening for
the machine to operate. Apply steady but moderate
pressure to the pusher until the pusher has come to
a stop. If the discharge plate is not in the machine,
the product will not come out from the exit chute.
HOW TO USE THE CYLINDRICAL SMALL OPENING
Remove the small pusher from the feed opening. Fill
the opening with product. Hold the pusher in one
hand, and press the on button with the other. Apply
steady but moderate pressure with the pusher until
the pusher stops. If the discharge plate is not in the
machine, the product will not come out from the
exit chute.

W A R N I N G
As a precaution, always unplug your
appliance before cleaning it (risk of electric
shock).
• MOTOR BASE
Never immerse the motor base in water. Clean
using a damp cloth or sponge.
• ATTACHMENTS :
Remove all attachments before cleaning. The bowl
and continuous feed attachments should be cleaned
per the following instructions or as required by local
health department regulations.
The bowl, blade, lid, continuous feed attachment,
continuous feed lead, pushers, and plates are
dishwasher safe. All of the attachments listed above
can be washed in a dish machine or three-tank
system pot sink. Pre-rinse the attachments before
washing to remove any bulk food on the parts.
A stiff bristle brush or power sprayer faucet attachment
is effective in knocking the food out of the crevices
as a pre-rinse procedure. The washer should have
an industry standard wash, rinse, and sanitization
cycle. Allow the parts to air dry after sanitizing and
before reassembly.
NOTE : The high temperatures of dish machines will
tend to shorten the life of the plastic and rubber
parts. Hand washing using a three-pot sink will
provide for the longest life of these parts.
Wear cut-resistant gloves when cleaning the blade
and plates.
Inspect the area on the outside of the bowl and feed
attachment around the handle and magnetic rod to
ensure they are clean. Use a brush on these areas
if necessary.
MOTOR BASE : Cleaning of the motor base assembly
must be done with care.
First unplug the unit. A sponging with a cloth
lightly dampened (not dripping) in a mild detergent
is acceptable, making sure the water is not permitted
to penetrate the shaft seal or around the switches.
Clean around the shaft seal with a small brush,
taking care to remove all food. Do not forget to
clean the motor shaft. Rinse the motor base first
using a cloth lightly dampened (not dripping) with
water, then with a sanitizing solution. Dry the
machine with a soft cloth removing all liquids from
seal areas.

SAFETY
• BLADE AND CUTTING PLATES
Blades should be kept sharp. It is not necessary
to have a razor edge. However, they will need
sharpening periodically. Replacement of the dull
blades or plates is recommended.
I M P O R T A N T
Check that your detergent is suitable for
cleaning plastic parts. Some washing agents
are too alkaline (e.g. high levels of caustic
soda or ammonia) and totally incompatible
with certain types of plastic, causing them to
deteriorate rapidly.
MAINTENANCE
• MOTOR SEAL
An examination should be made periodically to
assure that a seal against liquids is being
maintained around the motor shaft. The seal can
and should be replaced whenever wear or erosion
is noted or minimally once ever y three to six
months. It is recommended that the seal be replaced
by an authorized repair agency.
• BLADE
Blades should be kept sharp. It is not necessary
to have a razor edge. However, they will need
sharpening periodically. Replacement of the dull
blades or plates is recommended.
• BOWL LOCKING BUSHINGS (R 301 Dice Ultra)
If these bushings wear out, the bowl will no longer
be securely attached to the motor base.
10
Replacement bushings can be ordered: part number
R3069U.
The R 301 Dice / R 301 Dice Ultra are fitted with
a mechanical magnetic safety device and motor
braking system.
When you open the bowl lid, the motor stops. To
restart the machine, simply close the lid and press
the green switch.
When you open the lever of the vegetable
preparation attachment, the motor stops. When you
close the lever, the machine restarts.
W A R N I N G
The blades and cutting plates are extremely
sharp. Handle with care.
To avoid splashing when running liquids in the
bowl, allow the blades to come to a complete stop
before opening the lid.
NOTE : The machines are equipped with a thermal
protector which automatically stops the motor if the
machine is left on for too long or overloaded. If this
happens, allow the machine to cool completely
before restarting.
R E M E M B E R
Never try to override or defeat the purpose
of, the locking and safety systems.
Never put nonfood objects into the machine
openings.
Only use the food pushers to force the food
into the machine.
Do not overload the appliance.
Never leave the machine running unattended.
