Important Safeguards
When using electrical appliances, basic safety precautions should always be
followed, including the following:
1 Read all instructions carefully.
Save These Instructions
This appliance has a polarized plug (one blade is wider than the other).
As a safety feature, this plug will fit in a polarized outlet only one way. If the plug
does not fit fully in the outlet, reverse the plug. If it still does not fit, contact a
qualified electrician. Do not attempt to defeat this safety feature.
2 To protect against risk of electrical shock, do not put motor base, cord or
plug of the appliance in water or other liquid.
3 Close supervision is necessary when any appliance is used by or near children.
4 Turn unit off and unplug from outlet when not in use, before putting on or
taking off parts, and before cleaning. To disconnect, turn unit off, grasp plug,
and pull from the wall. Never yank on cord.
5 Avoid contact with moving parts. Keep hands, hair, clothing as well as
utensils, away from the cutting blade during operation to prevent injury
and/or damage to the chopper. A spatula may be used but only when the unit
is not running.
Before Your First Use
Carefully unpack the blender and accessories, and remove all packaging materials.
Wash the chopper bowl, chopping blade, blade attachments, and hand blender
attachment in warm, soapy water to remove any dust that may have accumulated
during packaging. Do not immerse the bowl cover, motor base, cord or plug in
water. Wipe the motor base and bowl cover with a damp cloth.
CAUTION: The attachment blades are very sharp. Use care when handling.
6 Blades are sharp; handle carefully.
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. Return the
appliance to an authorized service facility for 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 outdoors.
10 Do not let cord hang over edge of table or counter or touch hot surfaces,
including the stove.
11 Mixing flammable non-food substances can be harmful.
12 When mixing liquids, especially hot liquids, use a tall container, or make
small quantities at a time to reduce spillage.
13 Do not use this appliance for other than intended use.
14 Do not operate in the presence of explosive and/or flammable fumes.
15 This appliance is intended for HOUSEHOLD USE ONLY.

Spago restaurants and
one of the most influential
chef-restauranteurs in
America, is credited with
reviving California’s rich
culinary heritage. His cooking
innovations, a result of

ingredients. Turn the speed selector to “1” first.
Press the ON/OFF switch to begin blending;
then gradually increase speed, as needed. (see
figure 3) Slowly move the rod up, down and
sideways through the food . Note: Never
lift the hand blender attachment out of your
ingredients while the unit is running to avoid
splatter of your food.

Helpful Hints
Care & Cleaning
•
The hand blender can be used in hot liquids. Always use care when using in
hot liquids. To avoid splashing when using the hand blender in a saucepan,
insert the hand blender into the pan first, and then press the ON/OFF switch
for operation.
1
Unplug the unit from the outlet. Remove the blender rod attachment
from the motor base for cleaning by turning it to the right. Remove metal
attachment. Clean in warm, soapy water. Caution: Blades are sharp.
Handle with care.
•
To puree foods, a certain amount of liquid is needed. Add cooking liquid,
broth, juice, milk, or cream, until desired consistency is reached.
2
•
For thorough blending, move blade up and down in mixture until smooth.
If food particles are not easily rinsed off the blender rod or attachment, place
a drop of dish detergent in a mixing container with one cup of warm water.
Plug cord into outlet. Immerse the blade portion and metal rod and operate
the unit for about 10 seconds. Unplug, rinse under hot water, then dry.
•
You will achieve better mixing results if you use deep, tall containers.
3
•
For easy cleanup, unplug blender and rinse under running water immediately
after using.
Simply wipe the motor base clean with a damp cloth. Never hold the motor
base under running water or immerse it in any liquid.
4
Do not use pointed or sharp objects to remove food particles.
•
Place liquid ingredients into the beaker first unless recipe specifically states
otherwise.
5
•
Before turning the appliance on, immerse the hand blender attachment into the
prepared ingredients, thus ensuring they will not spill over.
•
For greater efficiency, move the appliance in small outward spiraling circles
while mixing, without touching the bottom of the beaker with the hand
blender attachment.
To clean the food chopper attachment, remove the bowl cover first, then the
chopping blade and the blade shaft. Do not immerse the chopper bowl cover
in water. Wipe with a damp cloth using dishwashing liquid if necessary. The
chopper bowl and chopping blade can be washed in warm, soapy water. Do
not to use abrasive or harsh cleansers.
•
The hand blender attachment cannot blend hard or fibrous ingredients unless
they are in less than 1/2" pieces, soft ones into 1/2 - 1" pieces.
•
Some foods require a small amount of liquid to allow them to move freely
around the blades. Soft or wetter foods require less liquid, while dry ingredients require more liquid. Add the liquid a little at a time until the mix gains
the required consistency.
•
When using the hand blender, ensure the blades are covered to avoid splashing.
9
Important: Do not try to sharpen the cutting edges of any blades.
They have been precision honed at the factory and will be damaged by any
attempted sharpening.

In a large soup pot, heat the oil, add the tortillas and cook them over low
heat until they are slightly crisp.
Using food chopper attachment, chop the garlic, onion, corn and jalapeno

vegetables are tender.
Add the tomatoes to the pot with the tomato paste and simmer the mixture for
10 minutes to bring out the flavor. Add the cumin and mix well.
Slowly whisk in the stock, then simmer the soup until it is reduced by one
third.
Purèe the soup using hand blender until it is very smooth, then pass it
through a fine strainer into a clean pot.
Add salt, pepper and cumin to taste.
Prepare the garnish: Preheat the oven to 350°. Cut the tortillas into julienne
strips, place them on a baking sheet and bake them for 10 to 15 minutes, or
until they are crisp. Peel and dice the avocado, cut the chicken into julienne
strips, grate the cheese and chop the cilantro. Place each garnish in a
separate bowl. (Continued next page.)
At serving time, reheat the soup.

Lobster Ravioli
with Fresh Dill Sauce (cont.)
3
On a floured surface, roll the pasta as thin as possible. Brush half of the
dough with the egg wash. On it place 30 mounds of the mousse, 3 inches
apart. Cover the mounds with the uneggwashed pasta sheet and press the
dough together around each ravioli. With a ravioli cutter or a large, sharp
knife cut the ravioli apart. Dust a tray with semolina and place the ravioli on
the tray. Refrigerate.
4
At dinnertime, while you make the sauce, bring a large pot of water to a boil
with a little oil.
5
Prepare the sauce: In a saucepan, reduce the wine with 1 sprig of the dill
and the minced shallot until 1/4 cup liquid remains. Add the cream and
reduce it by half. Slowly whisk in the butter, a little at a time, until all of it is
incorporated. Season to taste with salt, pepper and lemon juice. Set the
sauce aside and keep it warm.
6
Chop the remaining dill sprigs into 1/4 inch pieces, reserving 6 small sprigs
for the final garnish. Set aside.
7
Prepare the vegetables: Heat a sauté pan over medium heat and add the
butter. When it foams, add the julienne strips of vegetables and sauté them
until al dente. Season to taste with salt and pepper and reserve.
8
Add a little salt to the water, then the ravioli and cook for 5 to 6 minutes. Cut
1 ravioli open to see if the mousse is done. It should be barely cooked
through as it will continue to cook in the sauce. Drain the ravioli.
9
Add the ravioli to the sauce with the vegetables and the reserved lobster
meat and the chopped dill and heat just to the boiling point.
