Important SAFEGUARDS
When using an electrical appliance, basic safety precautions should
always be followed, including the following:
1.
READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS.
2.
Unplug from outlet when not in use, before putting on or
taking off parts, and before cleaning. To unplug, grasp plug
and pull from electrical outlet. Never pull cord.
3.To protect against electrical shock, do not put the motor body,
cord or electrical plug of this hand blender in water or other
liquids. Only the detachable blending shaft and other certain parts
of this appliance have been designed for immersion into water or
other liquids. Never submerge any other portion of this unit. If
hand blender falls into liquid, remove immediately. Do not reach

4.This appliance should not be used by children. To avoid possible
accidental injury, close supervision is necessary when any
appliance is used by or near children.
5.Avoid contact with moving parts.
6.During operation keep hands, hair and clothing, as well as
spatulas and other utensils, away from attachments and any
mixing container to reduce risk of injury to persons and/or
damage to the appliance. A spatula may be used, but must be
used only when the unit is not operating.
7.Do not operate any appliance with a damaged cord or plug,
or after the appliance has malfunctioned or has been dropped
or damaged in any way or is not operating properly. Return the
appliance to the nearest Cuisinart Repair Center for examination,
repair, or mechanical or electrical adjustment.
8.Remove detachable shaft from the blender before washing the

Operation
Blending
The specially designed blade is for mixing and puréeing all kinds of
foods, including salad dressings, powdered drink products, soups and
sauces and blended drinks like milkshakes or smoothies.
This blade mixes and stirs while adding only a minimum of air to your
mixture. A gentle up-and-down motion is all you need to make the
most flavorful, full-bodied recipes. Be careful never to remove the
blending shaft from the liquid while in operation, for it will splatter.
Tilt the pan or bowl away from you if needed to ensure the protective
blade guard on the blending shaft is fully submerged.

CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE
HAND BLENDER
Always clean the motor body and blending shaft thoroughly after
using. Remove the blending shaft from the motor body. Clean the
motor body only with a sponge or damp cloth. Do not use abrasive
cleaners that could scratch the surface. To clean the blending shaft,
wash by hand in hot water using mild detergent. Be mindful of the
fixed razor-sharp edges.
FOOD PROCESSOR ATTACHMENT
To simplify cleaning, rinse the work bowl, blade, disc and cover
immediately after use so that food won’t dry on them. Do not
submerge the work bowl cover in water or put in the dishwasher.
Wash chopping blade, disc, stem, pusher and work bowl in warm,
soapy water. Rinse and dry. Wipe the underside of the food proces-
12
sor cover with a sponge or damp cloth to remove any food. Wash the
blade carefully. Avoid leaving it in soapy water where it may disappear from sight.
You can wash the work bowl, chopping blade, disc and pusher on
the upper shelf of your dishwasher. Unload the dishwasher carefully
to avoid contact with the sharp blade. Wipe the motor body and top
of the cover with a damp sponge or cloth. Dry it immediately. Never
submerge the motor body or the cover in water or other liquids.
The food processor attachment is intended for HOUSEHOLD USE
ONLY.
WHISK ATTACHMENT
To clean your whisk attachment, simply release the attachment
from the motor body housing. Once the whisk is removed, detach
the metal whisk from the gearbox by pulling the pieces apart. To clean
the gearbox, simply wipe with a damp cloth. To clean the metal
whisk, wash with warm soapy water or put in the dishwasher.
Do not submerge the gearbox in water or any other liquid.
Any service, other than cleaning and normal user maintenance, should
be performed by an authorized Cuisinart Service Representative.
TIPS AND HINTS
FOR HAND BLENDER
• Be sure that blending blade guard is fully submerged before blending
ingredients.
• To purée a soup, use the hand blender to blend the soup ingredients to
the desired consistency, using a gentle up-and-down motion right in the
saucepan or pot.
• When blending ingredients right in a pot or pan tilt the pan away from
you to create a deeper area for blending to prevent splatter.
• When using a nonstick cooking surface, be careful not to scratch the
coating with the hand blender.
• When blending into the blending cup, for example when making a fruit
smoothie, cut most solid foods into ½ inch pieces for easy blending.
• Use the hand blender to make smooth gravies and pan sauces.
• Do not immerse motor body housing in water or any other liquid.
• When blending in the mixing cup, pour liquid ingredients in first, unless
recipe instructs otherwise.
• The hand blender is perfect for frothing milk for cappuccino or lattés.
Just warm milk in a small saucepan, and then pulse the hand blender
gently, being sure to keep the blending blade guard fully submerged.
• Do not let hand blender stand in a hot pot on stove while not in use.
• Do not attempt to blend fruit pits, bones or other hard materials as
these are liable to damage the blades.
13
• Do not fill mixing containers too full. The level of mixture will rise when
blending and can overflow.
• To whip air into a mixture, always hold the blade just under the surface.
• Using a gentle up-and-down motion is the best way to blend and incorporate ingredients uniformly.
• Liquid should not come closer than 1-inch of where the shaft attaches
to the motor housing.
FOR WHISK ATTACHMENT
• Do not immerse whisk attachment gearbox in water or any other liquid.
• Use the whisk attachment for beating heavy cream or egg whites.
• When beating egg whites use a very clean metal or glass bowl,
never plastic. Plastic can contain hidden oils and fats that can
ruin the delicate egg white foam. To help stabilize the egg whites,
add 1/8 teaspoon of cream of tartar per egg white prior to beating
them. (If using a copper bowl omit the cream of tartar.) Beat the
egg whites until desired peaks form.
• It may also be used for any task that you would normally whisk
by hand, like crêpe batters or eggs for omelets.
• Beating the egg whites too long causes them to dry out and
become less stable.
• When adding sugar to beaten egg whites, add it slowly when soft
peaks just begin to form and then continue beating to form
desired peaks.
• When beating heavy cream, if possible and time allows, use a
chilled bowl and chill the whisk attachment. The best shaped bowl
for whipping cream is one that is deep with a rounded bottom to
minimize any splatter.
• The cream should come out of the refrigerator just before whipping.
Whipped cream may be used at either soft or firm peaks depending on preference. It may be flavored as desired. For best results,
whip cream just before using.
FOR FOOD PROCESSOR ATTACHMENT
• When making compound butters, remove the butter from the refrigerator and let it come to room temperature before blending the ingredients.
• Do not grind spices in food processor work bowl.
• Liquids in work bowl should not exceed 1½ cups. Use quantities
given in the recipe section as a guide.
• Do not overload work bowl. For best results most foods should
not reach more than 2∕3 of the way up the work bowl.
• Do not attempt to chop fruit pits, bones or other hard materials,
as these are liable to damage the blades.
• Do not immerse food processor cover in water or any other liquid.
14
• Do not operate food processor attachment for more than
30 seconds continuously.
• To add liquid while the machine is running, pour it through open
feed tube. This is especially useful when making sauces.
• A small hole in the pusher allows you to add liquids in a very
slow, steady stream – useful when making dressings and/or
emulsions.
• ALWAYS USE PUSHER TO GUIDE FOOD THROUGH FEED TUBE. NEVER USE YOUR FINGERS OR A SPATULA.
• The size of pieces you put in bowl should be about the same size
to achieve even results.
• For raw ingredients: peel, core and/or remove seeds and pits.
Food should be between ½ and 1-inch, depending on hardness
of the food.
• Pulse food in 1-second increments to chop. For the finest chop,
process continuously. Watch ingredients closely to achieve
desired consistency and scrape the work bowl as necessary.
S
licing and Shredding (using the reversible slicing/shredding disc)
• Always pack food in the feed tube. Use light to medium pressure
on the feed tube while processing
• For round fruits or vegetables, remove a thick slice on the bottom
of the food so that it sits upright in the feed tube. If food does not
fit in the feed tube, halve or quarter it to fit. Process with even
pressure.
• For small ingredients, like mushrooms, radishes or strawberries,
trim the ends so the food sits upright in the feed tube.
• When slicing or shredding cheese, soft to medium firm cheeses
be sure that the cheese is well chilled.
• When slicing or shredding harder cheeses like Parmesan, bring to
room temperature first.
• To shred leafy vegetables like lettuce or spinach, roll leaves
together and stand up in feed tube. Process with even pressure.

Winter White Bean Soup
A rich and creamy soup, it will be sure to warm you
up on a cold winter day. If you do not have prosciutto,

1 garlic clove, chopped*
1 medium onion, chopped*
1 celery stalk, chopped*

Spring Asparagus Leek Soup
Makes about 8 cups
2
2
2
tablespoons unsalted butter
garlic cloves, chopped*
medium leeks, white and light green parts only, washed well
and sliced*
2
large bunches asparagus (about 2 to 2½ pounds), rough
ends trimmed and cut into 2-inch pieces (tips removed and
reserved)* – optional (see note in step 3)
1
large red potato (about 8 ounces), peeled and sliced, held in
water to prevent oxidation*
4
tablespoons dry white wine or cognac
1 to 1½ teaspoons kosher salt, to taste
¼
teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
5
cups vegetable broth (the more clear the broth, the greener
the soup will be)
1
teaspoon fresh lemon juice
crème fraîche for garnish
chopped chives for garnish
1. Put the butter in a medium saucepan and set over medium heat. Add
the garlic and leeks; stir until you hear a slight sizzle and then cover
pan to sweat the leeks for about 5 to 10 minutes, until they are very
soft.
2. Add the asparagus and potato to the pan. Stir to coat all vegetables
and sauté until soft. Pour in white wine or cognac and stir until
completely reduced. Add salt and pepper and stir in the vegetable
broth. Bring mixture to a boil and then reduce to a simmer. Simmer
until all vegetables are very tender, about 20 to 25 minutes.
3. While soup is simmering, steam the asparagus tips separately, about
5 to 8 minutes until crisp tender. Shock tips in ice water to maintain
a bright green color. Once cool, slice tips thinly lengthwise to be
used for garnish. (Note: This step is optional, but makes for a great
presentation.)
4. Once soup vegetables are tender, use the blending shaft and blend
soup until puréed. If using a larger saucepan, tilt the pan to the side
away from you to ensure that the protective guard of the blending
shaft is fully submerged to prevent splatter.
5. Stir in lemon juice. Taste and adjust seasonings as desired.

California residents may also, according to their preference, return
nonconforming products directly to Cuisinart for repair, or if necessary,
replacement, by calling our Consumer Service Center toll-free at
1-800-726-0190.
Cuisinart will be responsible for the cost of the repair, replacement, and
shipping and handling for such products under warranty.
BEFORE RETURNING YOUR CUISINART® PRODUCT
If you are experiencing problems with your Cuisinart® product, we
suggest that you call our Cuisinart® Service Center at 1-800-726-0190
before returning the product to be serviced. If servicing is needed, a
Representative can confirm whether the product is under warranty and
direct you to the nearest service location.
Your Cuisinart® Smart Stick® PowerTrio™ High Torque Hand Blender has
been manufactured to the strictest specifications and has been designed for
use only in 120 volt outlets and only with authorized accessories and
replacement parts. This warranty expressly excludes any defects or damages
caused by attempted use of this unit with a converter, as well as use with
accessories, replacement parts or repair service other than those authorized
by Cuisinart. This warranty does not cover any damage caused by accident,
misuse, shipment or other than ordinary household use. This warranty
excludes all incidental or consequential damages. Some states do not allow
the exclusion or limitation of these damages, so these exclusions may not
apply to you. You may also have other rights, which vary from state to state.
Important: If the nonconforming product is to be serviced by someone
other than Cuisinart's Authorized Service Center, please remind the
servicer to call our Consumer Service Center at 1-800-726-0190 to ensure
that the problem is properly diagnosed, the product is serviced with the
correct parts, and the product is still under warranty.
