FITTING OR REMOVING ATTACHMENTS
1.
Unplug the appliance before fitting or removing the mixing leg.
2.
To fit the mixing leg, push it on to the end of the handle, and turn it clockwise to
lock it in place.
3.
To remove the mixing leg, turn it anti-clockwise, then pull it off the handle.
ATTACHMENTS
THE MIXING LEG
1.
Generally, the mixing leg can do anything a normal blender can do, but faster, and
with less washing up – blend, pulp or purée ingredients in the pan or bowl you’re
going to cook them in. Remember that this blender is an immersion type blender,
therefore all use must be whilst the blade part of the mixing leg is immersed or
pressed into the ingredients (inside the container) in which you wish to blend.
2.
Whatever container you use, make sure it’s on a stable, flat surface, and support it
with your free hand, to prevent it moving.
3.
Avoid spraying/splashing:
a) hold the mixing leg straight
b) don’t switch on till it’s inside the food container
c) switch off before lifting it out of the container
d) with liquids, switch on and off with the blade under the surface
THE BEAKER
1.
Don’t fill the beaker more than about half full.
2.
Sit it on a stable, flat surface, and support it with your free hand.
3.
Don’t lift it off the work surface and hold it in your hand – if it slips, you’ll hurt
yourself.
OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
1.
Carefully unpack your hand blender and take off any protective wrappings.
2.
Clean the mixing leg and blade before using it for the first time with a moist cloth or
rinse under the tap. Make sure the unit is unplugged before doing this.
7
3.
Fit the mixing leg to the motor body as explained in the FITTING OR REMOVING
ATTACHMENTS section.
4.
Ensure the hand blender is unplugged or switched off at the wall socket.
5.
Put the ingredients into a mixing bowl, beaker or a different durable bowl, which is
sufficiently tall and wide enough to avoid splashing.
6.
Plug the unit into the mains power supply.
7.
Dip the mixing leg and blade as deep as possible into the mixture.
NOTE: When choosing not to use the beaker, ensure that the blender is not
immersed beyond the point where the mixing leg and blade join with the motor
body.
8.
Press the top button (1) for low speed, release to switch off.
9.
Press the bottom button (2) for high speed, release to switch off.
10.
Use low speed for lighter applications (e.g. using mainly liquid ingredients), and
high speed for heavier applications (e.g. using mainly solid ingredients). We
recommend first starting on a low speed and increasing the speed as needed,
depending on the desired consistency of the food being processed.
11.
Work the hand blender through the ingredients with a gentle circular movement
and up and down movement.
NOTE: Do not operate the hand blender before inserting it into the food being
mixed. Don’t run the motor for more than 3 minutes, if you have used it for 3
minutes leave it for 3 minutes to cool down before using it again.
12.
When you have finished using your hand blender, unplug the appliance and
remove the mixing leg and blade by holding the motor body and turning the mixing
leg and blade in an anti-clock wise direction.
13.
Clean the unit and the attachments thoroughly.
NEVER USE YOUR APPLIANCE IN A BOWL OR SAUCEPAN WHILE
COOKING.
SUGGESTIONS FOR USE

Move the mixing leg and blade gently around the mixture to ensure uniform
results.

If you want to clean the sides and base of the beaker/container with a hand-held
utensil, first switch the machine OFF (by switching it off at the wall socket).
8

To avoid unnecessary splashing, immerse the mixing leg and blade into the
mixture before switching the appliance ON.

The speed can be adjusted at any time. Use the LOW speed setting for the thicker
consistency. Use the HIGH speed setting for finer consistency.
THE WHISK (MODEL 18980-56)
1.
Push the whisk into the bottom of the whisk holder.
2.
To remove it, simply pull it out of the bottom of the whisk holder. Do not immerse
the whisk past the top of the wires.
THE CHOPPER (MODEL 18980-56)
1.
Use the chopper as a mini-food processor (max 450ml).
2.
Lower the spindle into the bowl.
3.
Turn the spindle to engage the slots underneath it with the tabs in the bottom of
the bowl, then press it firmly into the bottom of the bowl.
4.
Hold the chopper by the plastic part.
5.
Lower it into the bowl, over the spindle.
6.
Add the ingredients – don’t fill the bowl above the 450ml mark.
7.
Lower the bowl lid into the top of the bowl, so that the chopper fits into the drive in
the underside of the lid.
8.
Plug the handle into the wall socket, hold the bowl steady, and start blending.
9.

RECIPES
STRAWBERRY SHAKE (makes one shake)
½ Cup vanilla ice cream
½ Cup milk
½ Cup fresh strawberries (Other type of fruit can be used such as: peaches, pineapple,
banana)
1 ½ Tablespoons powdered sugar
Attach the mixing leg to the motor body. Place ingredients into the mixing bowl. Blend
on the HIGH speed for 25-30 seconds.
MAYONNAISE
200-250 ml oil
1 egg (yolk and white)
1 tbsp. lemon juice or vinegar
Salt and pepper to taste
Put all ingredients into the beaker according to the above-mentioned order. Introduce the
hand blender to the base of the beaker. Pressing the On/Off switch, keep the hand
blender in this position until the oil emulsifies. Then, without switching off, slowly move it
up and down until the mayonnaise is well combined.
BUTTERNUT SQUASH & APPLE SOUP WITH CHESTNUTS (serves 6)
To speed preparation, this recipe calls for prepared butternut squash puree. A garnish of
lightly sweetened whipped cream and chopped roasted chestnuts adds richness and
texture to the soup.
2 Tbs. unsalted butter
1 yellow onion, thinly sliced
2 Golden Delicious apples, peeled, cored and thinly sliced
1 jar (32 oz.) butternut squash puree
2 1/2 to 3 cups chicken stock
1 large bay leaf
2 tsp. salt, plus more, to taste
1/2 cup heavy cream
Freshly ground pepper, to taste
1/2 cup heavy cream, whipped until just thickened (optional)
12 fresh chestnuts, roasted, peeled and roughly chopped
12
In a small stockpot over medium heat, melt the butter. Add the onion and apples and
cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 10 minutes. Stir in the butternut squash
puree, 2 1/2 cups of the stock, the bay leaf and the 2 tsp. salt. Bring to a simmer, reduce
the heat to medium-low and cook, stirring occasionally, about 30 minutes. Remove
the bay leaf and discard.
Using the hand blender, puree the soup in the pot until smooth. Pour through a finemesh sieve set over a clean stockpot. Stir in the cream and add more stock to reach the
desired consistency. Season with salt and pepper. Reheat the soup gently to serving
temperature.
Ladle the soup into warmed bowls. Garnish each serving with a swirl of whipped cream
and sprinkle with chestnuts. Serve immediately.
BUTTERNUT SQUASH SOUP WITH HAZELNUT AND CREAM (serves 4)
Be sure to toast and skin the hazelnuts before adding them to the cream. Toasting
brings out the rich flavour of the nuts and loosens the skins, which can taste bitter. Place
the nuts in a dry fry pan over medium heat and toast, shaking the pan or stirring
occasionally, until the nuts are fragrant, 10 to 15 minutes. Or spread the nuts in a single
layer on a baking sheet and toast in a 325°F oven, stirring occasionally, for 10 to 15
minutes. While the nuts are still warm, wrap them in a kitchen towel and rub vigorously
to remove the skins. It’s OK if a few bits of skin still cling to the nuts.
1/3 cup heavy cream
2 Tbs. finely chopped toasted hazelnuts
Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
2 Tbs. unsalted butter
1 yellow onion, chopped
2 cups unsalted chicken stock, warmed,
plus more as needed
1 jar (17 oz.) butternut squash puree
Freshly grated nutmeg, to taste
In a saucepan over medium heat, warm the cream until steam starts to rise. Remove
from the heat, add the hazelnuts and let cool. Season with salt and pepper. Refrigerate
for 1 hour.
In a soup pot over medium heat, melt the butter. Add the onion and sauté, stirring
occasionally, until tender and translucent, 4 to 6 minutes. Add the 2 cups stock and the
squash puree and bring to a simmer, stirring, then reduce the heat to medium-low. Cook,
stirring, for 12 to 15 minutes. Using the Hand blender puree the soup, adding more
stock if the soup is too thick. Season with salt, pepper and nutmeg.
Whisk the hazelnut cream until lightly foamy. Ladle the soup into warmed bowls and top
each serving with the hazelnut cream.
13
ASPARAGUS SOUP (serves 4)
For an ultra smooth soup, strain it through a fine sieve, or a conical strainer that is a
favourite in restaurant kitchens. A pestle is used to push the food through the fine-mesh
perforations of the sieve.
1 1/2lb. asparagus
4 Tbs. (1/2 stick) plus 2 tsp. unsalted butter
1 yellow onion, diced
3 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 cup dry vermouth
3 cups chicken stock, plus more as needed
Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
3/4 cup heavy cream
Snap off the tough stem ends from the asparagus spears. Cut the tips off 8 of the spears
into 2-inch lengths. Set the tips aside. Chop the remaining asparagus into 1-inch pieces.
In a heavy soup pot over medium heat, melt the 4 Tbs. (1.2 stick) butter. Add the onion
and garlic and sauté, stirring occasionally, until tender and translucent, 3 to 4 minutes.
Add the vermouth and cook until most of the liquid has evaporated. Add the chopped
asparagus and the 3 cups stock. Season with salt and pepper. Bring to a simmer, then
reduce the heat to medium-low. Cover and cook until the asparagus is tender, about 20
minutes.
Using the hand blender, puree the soup until smooth, about 2 minutes. Pass the soup
through a fine sieve into a clean saucepan. Stir in the cream plus more stock if needed
to reach the desired consistency. Season with salt and pepper. Set the pan over low
heat and reheat the soup to serving temperature.
In a small sauté pan over medium heat, melt the 2 tsp. butter. Add the reserved
asparagus tips and cook until just tender, about 2 minutes. Ladle the soup into warmed
bowls, garnish with the asparagus tips and serve immediately.
