ELECTRICAL REQUIREMENTS

CAUTION

Avoid Electric Shock

This appliance has a polarized plug with one blade wider than the other.

To reduce the risk of electric shock, this plug is intended to fit into a polarized outlet only one way. If the plug does not fit into the outlet completely, reverse the plug. If it still does not fit, contact a qualified electrician. Do not attempt to modify the plug in any way.

TIPS FOR SUCCESSFUL OPERATION

Blending Wand

Step 1: MAKE SURE BLENDER IS UNPLUGGED

Step 2: ATTACH MAIN BODY TO BLENDING WAND

Be sure attachment is fully engaged to the main body by rotating the attachment clockwise until the units click together. The tick mark on the wand should be lined up with the line on the side of the main body.

Step 3: ADD NONSTICK SAFE GUARD ATTACHMENT (Optional)

Attach the nonstick safe guard attachment to prevent damage while blending in nonstick pans.

To attach, align the nonstick safe guard and the opening at the end of the blending wand (near the blade), being careful not to touch the blade.

Slowly press the nonstick safe guard onto the end of the blending wand.

To detach, push in both tabs of the nonstick safe guard and slowly pull it off of the blending wand, being careful not to place fingers inside the blade housing. The nonstick safe guard is dishwasher safe, or can be hand washed.

Step 4: PLACE INGREDIENTS IN MIXING BOWL

Choose a deep mixing bowl or container. Mixture will swell slightly as it mixes, especially on higher speed settings, so allow extra room in the mixing bowl to prevent spatters.

Step 5: INSERT THE POWER PLUG

Choose a suitable electrical outlet by referring to Electrical

Requirements on page 4.

• Cool hot foods, such as soups, slightly before pureeing to prevent burns.

• Do not lift the blender out of the food being blended until the blade completely stops.

• Unplug the appliance before you clean the blender.

• Remove pans from heat before blending in them to prevent damage to the nonstick guard.

Whisk

Step 1: MAKE SURE BLENDER IS UNPLUGGED

Step 2: ATTACH MAIN BODY TO WHISK ADAPTER BODY

Be sure attachment is fully engaged to the main body by rotating the attachment clockwise until the units click together. The tick mark on the wand should be lined up with the line on the side of the main body.

Step 3: PLACE INGREDIENTS IN MIXING BOWL

Choose a deep mixing bowl or container. Mixture will increase in volume as air is incorporated by the whisk, so allow extra room in the mixing bowl.

Step 4: INSERT THE POWER PLUG

Requirements on page 4.

Step 5: BEGIN WHISKING

Insert the whisk into the mixing bowl until the beater touches the bottom.

Turn the Variable Speed Dial to select the desired beating speed. Press the

Notes for Whisking:

• Use a deep mixing bowl or container to prevent spattering.

• The time needed to whip cream varies depending on the temperature of the cream and the amount being whipped.

• Cold whipping cream beaten in a chilled mixing bowl will thicken quicker than when beaten at room temperature.

• On the other hand, room temperature egg whites tend to whip to a slightly higher volume than chilled egg whites.

CLEANING AND CARE

Before Cleaning

• Before disconnecting the blending wand or whisk from the electrical outlet, consider dipping the end of the attachments in a container of warm, watered down mild detergent. Process under the soapy water to release food residue.

• Carefully unplug the immersion blender’s power cord from the electrical outlet by firmly grasping the plug.

• Remove any food from the chopper bowl and clean as soon as possible after chopping.

Do Not Immerse These Parts

Never immerse the main body, chopper lid, whisk housing, cord or plug in water. If needed, wipe with a damp cloth that has been dipped in a watered down mild detergent or soap.

Tips for Cleaning the Immersion Blender

• The blending wand, chopper bowl and blade, mixing cup, nonstick safe guard and whisk (detached from housing) are top rack dishwasher safe.

• The chopper lid and whisk housing are not dishwasher safe and should never be put in the dishwasher.

• If the blender joints accidently get wet, dry well as soon as possible.

• Any other servicing should be performed by an authorized service representative.

STORAGE

The cord wraps around the immersion blender for storage. Store the chopper blade inside the chopper bowl. NOTE: Blades are sharp. Handle carefully when storing or taking out the parts from the chopper bowl.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How do I know which attachment to use? Think about the texture and consistency you are trying to achieve. The chopper will cut food into small bits. The blending wand purees foods until they are smooth, and the whisk beats air into ingredients such as egg whites or cream. Refer to

Choosing an Attachment on page 6 for more information.

When using my own mixing bowl, how will I know when the

volume of mixture might be too large? The tip of the hand blender or whisk should be able to rest on the bottom of the bowl without the food mixture coming up over the joint on the attachment. This protects the joint from being exposed to moisture.

I accidentally overstuffed my chopper and now the blade is

jammed and will not move. What should I do? Remove the plug from the electrical outlet. Carefully remove blade and empty food from container. Replace blade and fill container back with food. Discontinue use if the immersion blender stops operating. Contact Calphalon

Creamy Lemon Meringue Pie

Makes one 9-inch pie

Ingredients:

For the crust –

1 c. crushed ginger snap cookie crumbs

½ c. graham cracker crumbs

2 tablespoons sugar

1/3 c. butter, melted

For the meringue –

4 large egg whites

Pinch of salt

¼ c. confectioners’ sugar

½ c. granulated sugar

½ tsp. pure vanilla extract

For the meringue –

4 large egg whites

Pinch of salt

¼ c. confectioners’ sugar

½ c. granulated sugar

½ tsp. pure vanilla extract

For the filling –

8 large egg yolks

¾ c. sugar

1/8 tsp. salt

Zest of 2 lemons

2/3 c. fresh lemon juice, strained

¼ c. fresh tangerine or orange juice, strained

8 Tbsp. butter, chilled and cut into small pieces

¾ c. heavy cream

Method:

For crust, preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly butter a 9-inch pie pan. In a mixing bowl, combine crumbs, sugar and butter. Transfer crumb mixture to pie pan and firmly press mixture into bottom and up the sides of pie pan. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes and cool before filling.

To make filling, bring about 2-inches of water to a simmer in a large saucepan.

Place egg yolks in a heatproof bowl (that will fit into the saucepan, but not touch the water) and whisk them until smooth. Gradually whisk in the sugar and beat until mixture is creamy. Add salt, zest, and juices and mix until smooth. Place bowl over the simmering water and whisk mixture by hand until it is very thick, about 10 to 15 minutes. The mixture should coat the back of a spoon. Carefully remove bowl from heat. Whisk in butter and continue to stir until butter is fully incorporated. Strain filling, cover and chill until cold, about

1 hour. Pour heavy cream into the Calphalon measuring cup, using Calphalon

3-in-1 Immersion Blender with whisk attachment, beat cream on low speed for about 20 seconds or until fully whipped. Fold cream into cooled lemon filling and spoon mixture into prepared piecrust.

For meringue, preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Add egg whites to the

Calphalon measuring cup, using the whisk attachment, beat egg whites on medium speed until foamy. Add confectioners’ sugar and beat on low speed for 1 minute. Transfer egg mixture to a large bowl. Using low speed, gradually add granulated sugar. Increase speed to high and beat for

3 minutes or until appropriate consistency is reached. The meringue should be very thick and hold a firm peak. Either pipe or spread meringue over lemon filling. Bake pie on middle rack of oven for 8 to 12 minutes or until meringue is golden brown. Transfer pie to a wire rack and cool completely. Chill pie for 2 hours before serving. This pie is best served the day it is prepared.
