Breville recommends safety first

(continued)

Care should be taken when removing the food from the food processor by ensuring the motor, processing blade and discs have completely stopped before disassembling.

Ensure the Speed Selection Dial is turned to the Off ‘O’ position, the appliance is switched off at the power outlet and unplugged, before removing the lid from the bowl. The processing bowl should then be unlocked from the motor body and the processing blade or disc holder carefully removed before attempting to remove the processed food.

Do not operate the food processor continuously for periods longer than 3 minutes on any setting or if processing a heavy load.

None of the recipes in this booklet should require processing for longer than 3 minutes and none are considered a heavy load. If the food processor is operated continuously for too long, it should be allowed to rest for 25-

30 minutes before recommencing.

• Do not use food processor on a sink drain board.

• To protect against electric shock do not immerse power cord, power plug or motor base in water or any other liquid.

• Do not move the food processor whilst in operation.

• Do not leave the food processor unattended when in use.

Do not place any part of the food processor in the dishwasher or microwave oven.

• Do not process thin fluids such as water, milk, stock, juice, etc. above the 200ml level in the processing bowl as this could result in overflow. To reduce the risk of overflow, always add drier or thicker ingredients to the processing bowl prior to adding fluids.

• Keep the appliance clean. Follow the cleaning instructions provided in this book.

ImpoRtANt SAfeguARdS foR All eleCtRICAl ApplIANCeS

Remove and safely discard all packaging materials and promotional labels from your

Breville Wizz™ Multi Processor.

Wash the food processor bowl, lid and other attachments in warm soapy water using a mild detergent. Rinse and dry thoroughly. (Refer to Care, Cleaning and Storage section of this booklet.)

Attaching the food processor bowl

The food processor bowl and lid must be correctly assembled for the food processor to operate.

Step 1

Place the motor base on a flat, dry surface such as a bench top. Make sure that the motor base is turned off at the power outlet and the power cord is unplugged.

Step 2

Place the processing bowl over the drive shaft and onto the motor base (see Fig 1). Turn the processing bowl clockwise to lock into position

(Fig 2).

Step 3

Select either the processing blade or a slicing or shredding disc (Refer Pages 8 and 9) for assembly.

Each time you reassemble your Breville Wizz™

Multi Processor be sure to attach the processing bowl first and lock it into position before attaching the lid.

The processing of thin fluids such as water, milk, stock, juice, etc. above the 200ml level in the processing bowl could result in overflow.

To reduce the risk of overflow, always add drier or thicker ingredients to the processing bowl prior to adding thin fluids.
