Important Safeguards
When using electrical appliances, basic safety precautions should always
be followed, including the following:
Read all instructions carefully.
To protect against risk of electrical shock, do not put mixer, cord or
plug in water or other liquid.
Close supervision is necessary when any appliance is used by or
near children.
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.
Avoid contact with moving parts. Keep hands, hair, clothing as well
as spatulas and other utensils, away from beaters or dough hooks
during operation to prevent injury and/or damage to the mixer.
Remove beaters and dough hooks from mixer before washing.
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.
The use of attachments not recommended or sold by the appliance
manufacturer may cause fire, electric shock, or injury.
Do not use outdoors.
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 mixer and remove all packaging materials. Wash the
dough hooks and beaters in warm, soapy water to remove any dust that may
have accumulated during packaging. Do not immerse the mixer body, cord or
plug in water. Wipe the mixer body with a damp cloth.
10 Do not let cord hang over edge of table or counter or touch hot
surfaces, including the stove.
Mixing flammable non-food substances can be harmful.
12 Do not use this appliance for other than intended use.

Inserting Beaters and Dough Hooks
Be sure the unit is unplugged before inserting
beaters or dough hooks. To insert the twisted
wire beaters, firmly grasp the mixer by the handle
and insert the beaters into the openings. Push
each beater in as far as it will go. The beater will
click as it locks into place. To insert the dough
hooks, ensure that the dough hook with the
plastic guide on the upper stem is placed into
the right-hand side of the hand mixer motor
housing, the dough hook without the plastic
guide will go into the left-hand side of the motor
housing (see figure 1). Plug the mixer’s power
cord into a 120 volt 60 Hz AC only outlet. Your
mixer is now ready to use.
Removing Beaters and Dough Hooks
Be sure your hand mixer is in the “0” (Off)
position and unplugged before removing beaters
or dough hooks. Your mixer has an eject button
to easily remove beaters or dough hooks (see
figure 2). Press the eject button, and the beaters or dough hooks will drop
out of their locks for easy cleaning.
Controlling the Mixer Speed
To operate your mixer, move the speed control from the “0” (Off) position
to the desired speed (see figure 2). During operation, you may change the
speed of the mixer by selecting a new speed.
Using the Power Burst Feature
The power burst feature of your mixer is perfect for tough mixing jobs.
The power burst increases the speed to the mixers maximum at the touch
of a button. You can use this feature should you feel or hear the mixer
slowing or straining during tough mixing jobs. When you release the
power burst button, the mixer will automatically return to the selected
speed on your mixer.
Interrupting the Mixing Process
To stop your mixer during operation, move the speed control to the
“0” (Off) position. This will stop the beaters or dough hooks from turning.
Cleaning Your Mixer
Be sure the mixer is unplugged before cleaning. Do not immerse the
hand mixer motor housing or plug in water or any other liquid, simply
wipe the housing with a clean, damp cloth. The beaters and dough hooks
should be removed from the hand mixer and washed in warm, soapy
water. The beaters and dough hooks can be placed in the top rack
of your dishwasher.
Speed Control Guide
Speed 1 - Stir

Heavenly Chocolate Mousse
Chocolate Chip Cookies
Serves 8
Makes about 2 1/2 dozen cookies
4 egg yolks
3/4 cup sugar
5 ounces bittersweet chocolate
5 ounces unsweetened chocolate
1/2 cup heavy cream
8 large egg whites
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
8 ounces (2 sticks) unsalted butter,
at room temperature, cut into small pieces
1 cup light brown sugar
3/4 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 1/2 ounces bittersweet chocolate, melted over water bath or in microwave
2 cups (1/2 pound) coarsely chopped pecans or walnuts,or toasted
and cooled unsalted peanuts, coarsely chopped
1 3/4 cups semisweet chocolate chips
Attach the beaters to the mixer. In a large bowl, mix egg yolks with
1/4 cup sugar until they become a pale yellow.
Melt chocolate over a bain-marie or in a heat-proof bowl over
simmering water.
In small saucepan, bring cream to a boil and stir it into the
melted chocolate.
Stir the chocolate mixture into the egg yolks and sugar. Set aside.
Sift together the flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
With the mixer attached with the beaters, beat egg whites and
lemon juice until they reach soft peaks. Add remaining 1/2 cup sugar
slowly with the mixer on speed 3. Increase speed to 5 and continue
to beat until whites are stiff and very shiny, approximately 7 minutes.
Stir one third of the whites into the chocolate mixture to lighten it.
Fold in the remaining beaten egg whites, a third at a time.
In a large bowl, soften the butter with the mixer equipped with the
beaters. Mix on speed 4 until butter is softened. Add the brown and
granulated sugars, increasing the speed to 5. After the sugar is incorporated, continue to mix until fluffy, stopping to scrape down sides
of bowl when necessary. Reduce speed to 3 and add the eggs, one
at a time, and the vanilla.
Pour into individual serving glasses or bowls and chill at last six
hours or overnight.
Note: If the chocolate and egg yolk mixture should tighten, place
the mixture back over the bain-marie, and vigorously whisk in 3 or 4
tablespoons of the beaten egg whites. The chocolate will smooth
out so you can continue with the recipe.
Stop mixer, scrape in the melted chocolate, and beat until
thoroughly combined with mixer set to speed 4. Reduce speed
to lowest setting. Gradually add flour mixture, and beat just until
combined. Add nuts and chocolate chips, and again beat just until
combined. If the dough is soft, wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate
until firm, 1 to 2 hours.
Position rack in center of oven and preheat oven to 350°. Line two
baking trays with parchment paper.
Using a small ice cream scoop, divide the dough into mounds, about
2 tablespoons each, forming small balls of dough. (Dough can be
rolled, placed on trays, and refrigerated until needed.) Arrange the
rolled balls on the prepared baking trays, about 2 inches apart. Bake
until slightly firm to the touch, about 15 minutes, reversing trays front
to back after 7 to 8 minutes. Remove cookies from trays with a wide
metal spatula and cool on wire rack. If reusing a baking tray, cool
slightly before arranging balls of dough on it.
Serve in individual glass dishes topped with whipped cream
and shaved chocolate.
Pizza Dough
Basic Pasta Dough
Makes four 8-inch pizzas
Makes about 1 1/2 pounds, serves 6 to 8
1 package active dry or
fresh yeast
1 teaspoon honey
1 cup warm water (105° to 115°)
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil,
plus more for brushing
Toppings of your choice
In a small mixing bowl dissolve the yeast and honey with 1/4 cup
of the warm water.
Fit the mixer with the dough hooks.
In a large bowl, use speed 1 to mix flour and salt thoroughly for
4 to 5 seconds. Increase speed to 3 and add the oil and the yeast
mixture to the flour. Slowly add the remaining 3/4 cup of warm
water. As you are mixing, all of the dough from the sides of the
bowl must be incorporated. A ball will start to form; continue
beating for 5 minutes.
Turn the dough onto a lightly floured surface and continue to knead
by hand 2 or 3 minutes longer. The dough should be smooth and firm.
Cover the dough with clean, damp towel and let it rise in a warm spot for
30 minutes.
Divide the dough into 4 equal parts and roll into balls.
Work each ball by pulling down the sides and tucking under the
bottom. Repeat 4 or 5 times. Then on a smooth, unfloured surface,
roll the ball under the palm of your hand until the top of the dough is
smooth and firm, about 1 minute. Cover the dough with a clean,
damp towel and let rise in a warm place for 15 minutes. At this point,
the balls can be wrapped in plastic wrap and refrigerated for up to
2 days. Make sure you wrap loose, but secure enough that the
dough does not ooze out.
Place a pizza stone on the middle rack and preheat the oven
to 500°.
To prepare each pizza,dip the ball of dough into flour, shake off
excess flour, place dough on a clean, lightly floured surface, and start
to stretch the dough. Press down on the center, spreading the dough
to form an 8-inch circle, with outer border a little thicker than the
inner circle. Lightly brush the inner circle of the dough with oil and
arrange the toppings of your choice over the inner circle.
Using a lightly floured baker's peel or a rimless flat baking tray,
slide pizza onto the baking stone and bake until the pizza crust
is nicely browned,10 to 12 minutes. Transfer the pizza to a firm
surface and cut into slices with a pizza cutter or very sharp
knife. Serve immediately.
1 1/2 cups semolina flour
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons salt
4 large eggs
2 tablespoons olive oil
In a large bowl, combine salt and flours.
Create a well in the middle of the flour. Crack the eggs and place
them in the well; pour oil over eggs.
With the mixer fitted with the dough hooks, begin kneading the
dough with the mixer on speed 3. Increase the speed to 5 and knead
until a ball is formed.
Make sure to knead all of the remaining flour which may be on
bottom or sides of bowl. Continue to knead ball by hand onto a
lightly floured surface until a smooth ball is achieved.
Wrap in plastic wrap and let rest at room temperature for
30 minutes.
Cut dough into 4 equal pieces and roll out 1 piece at a time, keeping
the remaining dough wrapped until needed. Cut as desired.
Buttermilk Biscuits
Recipe Notes
Makes 20 to 22 biscuits
2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon baking powder
2 teaspoons salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
10 tablespoons (5 ounces) chilled unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
1/4 cup minced onion
1 tablespoon chopped fresh or 2 teaspoons dried thyme
1 cup buttermilk
1 or 2 tablespoons milk or cream
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese, optional
With the mixer fitted with the beaters, mix the flour, sugar, baking
powder, salt and baking soda in a large bowl on speed 1.
Add the onion, thyme, and chilled butter pieces. Increase mixer speed
to 4 and blend chilled butter into batter. Reduce speed to 2 and slowly
add the buttermilk.
When dough comes together, remove the beaters and attach
the dough hooks. Continue to knead on speed 3 until a round ball
is formed.
Place dough ball onto well-floured surface and, with a rolling pin,
roll out dough to 1-inch thickness.
Cut biscuits with biscuit cutter, and place onto a parchment lined
baking sheet. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour before baking.
Preheat oven to 350°. Brush the tops of biscuits with milk or cream,
and then sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Bake 25-30 minutes, or
