Consumer Safety Information
This appliance is intended for household
use only.
This appliance is equipped with a polarized
plug. This type of plug has one blade wider
than the other. The plug will fit into an
electrical outlet only one way. This is a safety
feature intended to help reduce the risk of
electrical shock. If you are unable to insert
the plug into the outlet, try reversing the
plug. If the plug should still fail to fit,
contact a qualified electrician to replace the
obsolete outlet. Do not attempt to defeat
the safety purpose of the polarized plug by
modifying the plug in any way.
WARNING: To reduce risk of personal injury,
always unplug mixer before inserting or
removing beaters.
BEFORE FIRST USE: Wash attachments
in hot, soapy water. Rinse and dry.

Mixing Guide
The following mixing guide is a suggestion for selecting mixing speeds for the
6 speed mixers. Begin on speed 1 and increase to desired speed depending on the
recipe consistency.
OFF and/or Eject
LOW speed for folding or mixing in dry ingredients, muffins,
or quick breads
To cream butter and sugar; most cookie dough
MEDIUM speed for most packaged cake mixes; bread dough
Frosting and mashed potatoes; bread dough
Beating egg whites; bread dough
HIGH speed for whipping cream; bread dough
NOTE: Dough hooks should only be used on speeds 3 through 6.
Mixing Tips
Cookie dough is one of the thickest
doughs to mix. Make it easier by
following these tips:
• Use a large mixing bowl so that
the ingredients spread out for
easier mixing.
• Have butter or margarine at
room temperature.
• Add ingredients one at a time and
thoroughly mix after each addition.
• Add flour one cup at a time.
• To add chips or nuts to a very thick
dough or batter, we recommend
stirring them in by hand at the very
end of the recipe.
Cleaning Your Mixer
1. Always turn off and unplug mixer
from electrical outlet before ejecting
the attachments.
2. Wash attachments in hot, soapy
water; rinse and dry.
3. Wipe the mixer body and cord with
a clean, damp cloth.
• Do not use abrasive cleaners or
scouring pads.
• To reduce the risk of electrical shock
do not immerse the mixer body or
cord in water or other liquid.
• The optional storage case should be
wiped clean with a damp cloth. It is
not dishwasher safe.
