Normally when blending, the blender jar should be filled with the entire amount of material to be blended, if possible, before switching the appliance to On. The cover and cover closure should always be in place after filling the blender jar and before switching the power unit to On. Any subsequent additions to the blended material should be made through the cover opening, see figure 8. For solids and/or granular material, remove the cover closure/ funnel to add the material, as shown in figure 8a. For liquids, the closure/funnel may be left in place and the liquids can be added by pouring them into the closure/ funnel, see figure 8b.

When the blender is being used on dry materials, such as nuts or bread, the best results will be obtained when the blender jar is filled with approximately 1/2 cup of material to be blended. If the blender does not start (even after trying the highest speed), the blade has become blocked by the contents. The power unit should be:

Figure 8.

Example of Use of Blender

To familiarize you with the operation of the blender, a sample recipe for mayonnaise is provided below:

1. Switched to off, “O/Off,” and unplugged.

2. The mixture should be removed and the contents at the bottom of the jar loosened.

Mayonnaise Recipe

1 whole egg

1/3 cup of vegetable oil

2 tablespoons lemon juice or light vinegar

1 teaspoon sugar

1/2 teaspoon dry mustard

1/2 teaspoon of salt

2/3 cup of vegetable oil

Removing Contents

Before beginning to remove the contents from the blender, make sure that the power unit has been turned to off position “O/Off.”

Mix all ingredients, except final 2/3’s cup of oil, for a few seconds at speed 1, then quickly pour the oil in through the opening in the cover in a uniformly thick stream, as shown in figure 8b. Operate the blender at speeds 1 or 4 until mixture is thick and smooth (approximately 10

20 seconds).

Makes 1 1/4 cups.

Care and Cleaning of Blender

All components of the blender, except the blade/base assembly, are dishwasher safe.

It is recommended that the blade/base assembly be cleaned only under flowing water rather than in the dishwasher. Soap and detergent will tend to wash out the bearing lubricant of the blade/base assembly. Do not use scouring cleaners on any of the blender parts.

Tips:

The blender should be operated with careful consideration as to what is required and/or desired. The speed at which the blender is operated and the length of operation for a given job will depend upon the degree of fineness desired or the amount being blended.

Learning how to feed food properly into the feed funnel is the most important factor for proper slicing and grating:

1. For long slices or long shreds, place food into the feeding funnel lengthwise.

2. For short or circular slices, place food in the feeding tube on end. For example, If you wish to have circular slices of zucchini or carrots:

• cut to length not to extend above the top of the feeding tube.

• place the cut zucchini or carrots in the feeding tube on end until the feeding tube is packed.

To slice a single narrow item, a carrot for example:

• place the carrot in the feeding funnel opposite the cutting edge of the disc.

The wall of the feeding funnel will then serve to hold the piece vertical.

When using the continuous shredder, be sure to watch the level in the bowl and stop the slicing, shredding or grating before the level of the material being sliced, shredded or grated blocks the discharge tube.

Slicing and shredding tips:

1. Shopping for fruits and vegetables that will fit into the feeding funnel will simplify food preparation.

4. Do not overcook potatoes that are to be sliced. Also it is recommended that you let them cool first. Potatoes must be cool and firm to obtain the regular slices.

If the slicer/shredder does not start (even after trying the highest speed) the disc has become blocked by the contents. The power unit should be:

1. Switched to Off position, “O/Off,” and unplugged.

2. The continuous shredder should be removed from the power unit, the cover removed and the items causing the blockage removed.

Removing Contents

Before beginning to remove the contents from the bowl, make sure that the power unit has been turned to the Off position,

“O/Off.” The continuous shredder may be removed from the power unit by turning the shredder clockwise while lifting. With the continuous shredder removed from the power unit, depress the release button and move the arm upward until the bowl can be removed. The contents of the bowl may now be poured into a suitable container or bowl, as desired.

2. Foods that are to be used together may be sliced together. This can be used to your advantage. For example, green onions and celery are often used together, but feeding the green onions into the feeding funnel alone is difficult.

Try slicing the green onions at the same time as the celery by interspersing them in the feeding funnel with the celery.

3. Use the slicing disc to shred lettuce.

All components of the continuous shredder are dishwasher safe. Do not use scouring cleaners on any of the continuous shredder parts.
