IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS
Meijer.com
When using electrical appliances, basic safety precautions should always be followed, including the following:
1. Read and save all instructions.
2. To protect against risk of electric shock, do not immerse base,
motor, cord, or plug in water or other liquid.
3. Close supervision is necessary when any appliance is used by
or near children.
4. This appliance should not be used by children.
5. Unplug cord from outlet when not in use, before putting on
or taking off parts, and before cleaning.
6. Avoid contacting moving parts.
7. Do not operate any appliance with a damaged cord or plug
or after the appliance malfunctions or is dropped or damaged
in any manner. Call our toll-free customer service number
for information on examination, repair, or electrical or
mechanical adjustment.
8. The use of attachments not recommended or sold by the
appliance manufacturer may cause fire, electric shock, or injury.
9. Do not use your food processor if any part is broken.
10. Do not use appliance outdoors.
11. Do not let cord hang over edge of table or counter, or touch hot
surfaces.
12. Keep hands and utensils away from moving blade and disc while
processing food to reduce the risk of severe personal injury
and/or damage to the food processor. A rubber scraper may be
used but ONLY when the food processor is not running.
13. The blade and disc are sharp. Handle carefully. Store out of reach
of children.
14. To reduce the risk of injury, never place cutting blade or disc on
base without first putting bowl properly in place.
15. Be certain lid is securely locked in place before operating appliance.
16. Never feed food into food chute by hand. Always use the food
pushers.
17. Do not attempt to defeat the lid interlock mechanism.
18. Make sure the blade or disc has come to a full stop before
removing lid.
19. To reduce the risk of injury, be sure to insert or remove blade
and disc using hubs provided for this purpose. Use caution
when removing blade and disc from the bowl, when emptying
the bowl, and when cleaning.
20. Be sure to turn OFF (O) after each use. Always use the pushers
to clear the food chute. When this method is not possible, unplug
cord from outlet and disassemble unit to remove the remaining
food.
21. The appliance is not intended for commercial, professional, or
industrial use. It is designed and built exclusively for household
use only.
22. Never use appliance for a longer period or with a larger amount
of ingredients other than that recommended by appliance
manufacturer. See section titled “Processing Charts.”
23. The maximum rating of this unit is based on using the chopping/
mixing blade. Using the slicing/shredding disc may draw
significantly less power.
24. Do not place on or near a hot gas or electric burner or in
a heated oven.
25. Do not use appliance for other than intended use.
26. Check that the control is OFF (O) before plugging cord into wall
outlet. To disconnect, turn the control to OFF (O); then remove
plug from the wall outlet.
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS!

OTHER CONSUMER SAFETY INFORMATION
This product is intended for household use only.
WARNING! Shock Hazard: This appliance has a polarized plug (one
wide blade) that reduces the risk of electric shock. The plug fits only
one way into a polarized outlet. Do not defeat the safety purpose of
the plug by modifying the plug in any way or by using an adapter. If
the plug does not fit fully into the outlet, reverse the plug. If it still
does not fit, have an electrician replace the outlet.
Meijer.com
The length of the cord used on this appliance was selected to reduce
the hazards of becoming tangled in or tripping over a longer cord.
If a longer cord is necessary, an approved extension cord may be
used. The electrical rating of the extension cord must be equal to
or greater than the rating of the appliance. Care must be taken to
arrange the extension cord so that it will not drape over the countertop or tabletop where it can be pulled on by children or accidentally
tripped over.
To avoid an electrical circuit overload, do not use another highwattage appliance on the same circuit with this appliance.

Tips and Techniques
• For a more uniform consistency,
start with pieces of food that
are similar in size. Cut food
into 1-inch (2.5 cm) pieces
before processing with
chopping/mixing blade.
• This food processor is
excellent to chop, mix, slice,
or shred most foods. However,
to maintain peak performance,
do not use your food processor
for the following: grinding
grain, coffee beans, or spices;
slicing frozen meats; kneading
dough; or crushing ice.
• When chopping foods, pulsing
on and off will produce the
best results.
• Operating time will depend
on quantity of food being
processed. Most foods can be
sliced, chopped, or shredded
in seconds. If unit is operated
continuously for an extended
period of time, let the processor
rest about 4 minutes before
continuing.
• Do not puree or mash starchy
vegetables like potatoes as
they are easily overprocessed
and will become gummy.
• To slice or shred cheese, select
firm cheese like Cheddar or
Swiss. For best results,
process cheese that is well
chilled.
• The reversible slicing/shredding
disc has a slicing blade on one
side and shredding teeth on
the other and can only be used
with the large bowl. The name
engraved on the blade, facing
up, is the function selected.
For slicing, the word “SLICE”
should face up; for shredding,
the word “SHRED” should face
up. Place on motor shaft with
desired cutting edge facing up.
• To julienne vegetables, slice,
remove from bowl, and restack
the vegetables. Pack into food
chute with slices vertical. Slice
again to make matchstick-cut
vegetables.
Processing Charts
Meijer.com
Disc attachments are reversible and labeled. The label should face
up for the desired function. When using disc attachments, do not
process past the MAX LEVEL on the bowl.

Troubleshooting
PROBLEM
Meijer.com
PROBABLE CAUSE
Unit does not operate
on any speed or Pulse.
• Is the unit plugged in? Does the outlet work?
• Are the bowl(s) and lid locked in place and large food pusher in food chute? See “How to Use” sections.
Food is not chopped,
sliced or shredded
uniformly.
• Packing too much food in the food chute or pushing too hard on the food pusher may cause the
processed food to be irregulary sliced or shredded.
• Recommended speed for slicing and shredding disc should be LO for cheeses and LO or HI for
vegetables or fruit.
• Refer to the food processing charts for recommended sizes, speeds, and quantities.
Unit stops and will
not come back on.
• Are the bowl(s) and lid locked in place and large food pusher in food chute? They may have moved
slighty during processing. See “How to Use” sections.
• Is the outlet still working? Check it by plugging in a working lamp or other appliance. You may have
overloaded the circuit and blown a fuse or tripped the circuit breaker.
• Turn unit OFF (O), allow to stand for 3 to 4 minutes, and then turn back ON. If none of these suggestions
correct the problem, DO NOT attempt to repair the unit. Call the Customer Service number to get the
name of your nearest Authorized Service Center.
Unit has a burning smell.
• There may be a residue left on the motor from the manufacturing process, causing a slight odor
during initial use. This will go away. If a strong odor or any visible smoke appears, unplug unit
IMMEDIATELY and call the Customer Service number.
Motor seems weak.
• Are you using the recommended food size and quantity to be processed? Refer to the Food Processing
Charts for recommended food sizes and speeds.
It is difficult to remove lid
from bowl(s) or bowl(s) from
base.
• After washing in the dishwasher, allow parts to return to room temperature prior to placing on base.
A small amount of vegetable oil may be placed on snaps for easy removal.
