Important Safeguards

When using electrical appliances, basic safety precautions should always be followed, including the following:

1 Read all instructions carefully.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Helpful Hints

• 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.

• To puree foods, a certain amount of liquid is needed. Add cooking liquid, broth, juice, milk, or cream, until desired consistency is reached.

• For thorough blending, move blade up and down in mixture until smooth.

• You will achieve better mixing results if you use deep, tall containers.

• For easy cleanup, unplug blender and rinse under running water immediately after using.

• Place liquid ingredients into the beaker first unless recipe specifically states otherwise.

• 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.

• 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.

Care & Cleaning

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.

2 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.

3 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.

5 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.

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.

Watercress Salad with

Barbecued Chicken Breast

An ideal luncheon dish for spring or summer.

Serves 5


Mustard Vinaigrette:

1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh tarragon

1 tablespoon sherry wine vinegar salt freshly ground white pepper

1 cup almond or extra-virgin olive oil (or a mixture of both)


3 small whole chicken breasts

15 cloves garlic

1/4 cup fresh Italian parsley leaves salt freshly ground pepper

3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

3 bunches watercress

1/2 pound mushrooms such as chanterelle, porcini or shiitake


1 Prepare the vinaigrette: In a bowl or beaker, combine the mustard, tarragon, vinegar, salt and pepper. Use hand blender to whisk in the oil in a slow, steady stream. Taste carefully and correct the seasonings, including the mustard and vinegar. Set aside.

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.


Divide the ravioli among heated dinner plates. Spoon the sauce over them and garnish each plate with a small sprig of dill in the center. Serve immediately.
