PROCESSOR
DO:
• Make sure the electrical outlet is
rated at the same voltage as that
stated on the bottom of the blender
motor base.
• Always use the motor base on a
clean, sturdy and dry surface.
• Always add liquid ingredients to the
blender jar first, then add remaining
ingredients. This will ensure that
ingredients are uniformly mixed.
• When using either appliance, cut
most foods into cubes approximately
1/2" to 1" to achieve a more uniform
result. Cut all cheeses into pieces no
larger than 1/2".
• When using blender, use the
measured pour lid to measure liquid
ingredients such as alcohol. Replace
measured pour lid after ingredients
have been added.
• When using either appliance, use a
rubber or plastic spatula as needed,
only when the blender is turned OFF.
Never use metal utensils, as damage
may occur to the blender jar/work
bowl or cutting assembly.
• Place blender cover on firmly. Always
operate the blender with the
cover on.
• Make sure locking ring is tightly
attached to blender jar.
• When using blender, always remove
locking ring, cutting assembly, and
rubber gasket before cleaning.
• When scraping the blender jar with a
spatula, remove the food from the
sides of the blender jar and place it
in the center of the blender jar, over
the cutting assembly.
• When chopping fresh herbs, garlic,
onion, zest, bread crumbs, nuts,
spices, etc., make sure the blender
jar and cutting assembly are
completely dry.
• If food tends to stick to the sides of the
blender jar or food processor work bowl
during use, pulse in short bursts.
• When using food processor, pulses
should be short bursts. Space the
pulses so the blades stop rotating
between pulses.
DON’T:
• Don’t store food or liquids in your
blender jar or food processor work
bowl.
• When using blender, don’t place
cutting assembly and locking ring
onto motor base without the blender
jar attached.

enough time between pulses to let food
in work bowl fall to bottom.
Always use the “Food Processor” button for pulse/chopping. Never turn
cover back and forth to start and stop
processor.
USING THE SMARTPOWER DUET®
BLENDER/FOOD PROCESSOR TO
CHOP, PURÉE, AND MIX
Refer to Food Processor Assembly
instructions on page 6.
1. Remove cover and put food into
work bowl.
First, cut food into 3/4" pieces. You will
get a more even chop if you start with
pieces that are all the same size.
Put pieces into work bowl with metal
blade in place. You can put in up to
1 cup of food at a time. If you want to
process more, do it in batches.
2. Put on cover and lock it. Insert
pusher. It is recommended that one
hand be placed on the food processor lid while in use, to provide unit
stability. Press the “On” button,
press the “Pulse” button, and the
“Food Processor” button (to pulse),
then release. Repeat two to three
times. Each time blade stops, let
food pieces drop to the bottom of
bowl before pulsing again. This
ensures that the blade will chop
them at every pulse.
Watch what happens to the food. With
pulse/chopping technique, you can get
an even chop without danger of overprocessing. Check texture by looking
through work bowl. Be careful not to
overprocess.
For a coarse chop, pulse only a
few times.
3. If you want a finer chop or purée,
press the “On” button and then the
“Food Processor” button and let
machine run continuously until the
food is chopped as fine as you want
it. Check frequently through clear
cover or bowl to avoid chopping too
fine. Use a plastic spatula to scrape
down any pieces that stick to inside
of bowl.
Onions and other food with a high
water content turn into a smooth purée
very quickly. Do not over- chop - look
at food frequently through work bowl.
7
To purée, follow same procedure as
for chopping, but let machine run until
food is a smooth purée.
New users are often surprised at how
fast the processor works. You will
quickly get used to its great speed.
Here are two ways to prevent it from
falling out:
1. Before tilting bowl, use spatula to
remove food from around blade.
Carefully remove blade by the plastic hub.
General Guidelines for Preparing Foods for Processing with
the Food Processor Chopping Blade
THE FOOD
HOW TO PREPARE IT
Fruit and vegetables
Peel and core if necessary. Remove large hard
pits and seeds. Cut into 3/4" pieces and process
up to 1 cup at a time.
Meat, poultry and fish
These should be very cold but not frozen. First, cut
into 3/4" pieces. Put up to 1/2 pound in work bowl.
If you want to chop or purée more, do it in batches
of not more than 1/2 pound each. Pulse/chop or
run continuously until desired consistency is
reached. Check texture every 2 or 3 seconds to
avoid overprocessing.
Bread, crackers or cookies
Break into 1" pieces and process continuously
until texture for crumbs is fine. For seasoned
crumbs, chop with herbs. For buttered crumbs,
dribble melted butter through feed tube while
processing - 1 teaspoon melted butter for each
slice of bread.
Crumb crusts
Chop crackers or cookies as described in
preceding paragraph. Add sugar, spices and butter
and cut into pieces, as specified by recipe.
Pulse/chop until combined.
Hard cheese “grated”
If it’s too hard to cut with a knife, don’t try to chop
it – it may damage blade. First cut into 3/4" pieces.
Pulse/chop until pea-sized, then process
continuously. You can chop it as coarse or as fine
as you want. Simply run machine longer for finer
chop. Process up to 3 ounces at one time.
Whipping cream
Processor-whipped cream works well for most
purposes. It is excellent as a topping for desserts
or hot drinks. Cream must be at refrigerator
temperature. You can whip up to 1 cup at a time.
Parsley and other fresh herbs
Work bowl and metal blade must be clean and
dry. Remove stems; use leaves only. Dry herbs
completely. The more herbs you chop at once, the
finer chop you can get. Chopped herbs keep for
several days in the refrigerator in airtight bags, or
can be frozen for months.
These are some conditions that affect
your results:
• Size of pieces you put in bowl –
all should be about the same size.
• Amount of food you process – don’t
add too much.
• Type of processing you choose –
continuous or pulse/chopping.
ADDING FOOD
WHILE PROCESSING
To add liquid while the machine is running, pour it through open feed tube.
This is especially useful when making
mayonnaise or dressings.
A small hole in the pusher allows you
to add liquids in a very slow, steady
stream – useful when making sauces.
When you want to add small pieces
of food like cheese, meat or garlic
cloves while machine is running,
drop them through open feed tube.
To prevent spills when adding
sugar and other dry ingredients,
use a funnel.
REMOVING PROCESSED FOOD
Before removing processed food, press
“Off” button and wait for blade to stop
spinning. Then remove cover by turning it counterclockwise. Never try to
remove cover and work bowl together;
this can damage work bowl.
It is important not to let metal blade fall
out of work bowl as you empty it.
8
2. Hold top of blade in place with finger or spatula while pouring out
processed food.
At this point, you may either lift the
work bowl off motor base, or hold the
collar at the base and turn the handle
of the bowl counterclockwise and lift
blade straight up.
Your SmartPower Duet® Blender/Food
Processor makes many everyday food
preparation tasks much easier and
faster. Follow these guidelines to get
best results when using metal blade
with food you prepare most often.
NOTE: Occasionally, a piece of food
may become wedged between the
blade and the work bowl. If this happens, remove the cover, lift the blade
out carefully and remove the wedged
piece. Empty the bowl, reinsert the
blade and lock the cover into place.
Process smaller amounts of the food
at one time.
SLICING AND SHREDDING
1. Assemble clear work bowl on collar
and base in the usual way. (See
steps 1 and 2 on page 6.)
2. Pick up adapter stem. Hold stem by
side that has the octagon shape
(eight sided) and push rounded side
down as far as it will go on motor
shaft.
3. Place the reversible slicing/shredding disc with the desired cutting
edge facing up onto the adapter
stem. Always handle slicing/shredding disc by the rim. Never touch
sharp cutting blades.
4. Put cover on work bowl, lock it into
place by twisting it clockwise and
insert food in feed tube.
5. Insert pusher. Use moderate
pressure to push down on pusher
with one hand while using your
other hand to push the On button,
Pulse button, and hold down the
Food Processor button. Slicing and
shredding only take a few seconds.
Wait until disc stops spinning before
removing cover. When it stops,
remove cover before removing work
bowl. Never try to remove cover and
work bowl together; this could damage work bowl.
6. Remove slicing/shredding disc
before removing work bowl. To
remove it, grasp flat top section of
adapter stem and lift it straight up.
Holding work bowl collar, turn work
bowl counterclockwise and lift it
straight up to remove it from base.

BLENDER:
Chopping Nuts
Pulse 1/2 cup of nuts (shells removed)
on chop 4-5 times. Turn blender off;
scrape blender jar with spatula. Turn
blender on and pulse on chop 2-3 times.
Turn blender off. Pulse fewer times for
more coarsely chopped results. For best
results, process no more than 1 cup at
a time.
Bread, Cookie or
Cracker Crumbs
For best results, use day-old bread
(drier bread works best). Break bread
slices into 1/2" pieces, and process no
more than 1 cup of pieces at a time on
mix for 5-10 seconds. Crackers and
cookies should also be broken into 1/2"
pieces; process 1 cup at a time on mix
for 10-15 seconds. Turn blender off.
Crushing Ice
(Blender Jar Only)
Add up to 10 large ice cubes to
blender jar. Press the “Ice Crush”
Button, using short bursts, 10 times or
until cubes are the consistency of
snow. Turn blender off. Pulse fewer
times if coarsely chopped ice is
desired.
Grating Citrus Zest
For best results, blender jar and cutting
assembly must be clean and dry.
Remove zest from fruit in strips (using
vegetable peeler). Use no more than
8 strips at a time (zest of one medium
lemon). Cut strips in half. Add strips
and 1 teaspoon sugar (from recipe)
to the blender jar. Blend on food
processor speed for 15-20 seconds.
Turn blender off.
Grinding Hard Cheese
Cut cheese into 1/2" pieces. Blend on
food processor speed for 30 seconds.
Turn blender off. For best results, grind
no more than 3 ounces of cheese at a
time.
Grinding Spices
For best results, blender jar and cutting
assembly must be clean and dry. Add
1/4 -1/2 cup of spices, seeds or
peppercorns to blender jar. Blend on
food processor speed for 30-35
seconds. Turn blender off.
Whipping Cream
Whip 1 cup of cream (whipping or heavy
cream) at a time. Blend on mix, and
process for 45-60 seconds or until
creamy and smooth. If making
sweetened cream, add sugar after
10 seconds. Turn blender off.
Makes about 1 cup.
Puréeing Sun-Dried Tomatoes
Rehydrate 1 ounce of tomatoes in 1 cup
boiling water. Allow to sit for 10 minutes
or until softened. Add tomatoes and
water to blender jar. Cover and pulse on
food processor speed 5 times; then run
continuously on food processor speed
for 15-20 seconds. Turn blender off.
Drain in fine strainer if desired. Makes
about 1/2 cup of puréed tomatoes.
CLEANING AND
STORING YOUR
SMARTPOWER®
FOOD PROCESSOR
ATTACHMENT
Store the chopping blade and slicing/
shredding disc as you would sharp
knives – out of the reach of children.
The work bowl, cover, pusher,
chopping blade, and slicing/shredding
disc are top shelf dishwasher safe.
When placing parts in your
dishwasher, insert the work bowl
upside down. Remember where you
place the sharp blade and disc, and
be certain to unload the dishwasher
carefully.
The gearbox collar is not immersible.
To clean, just wipe with a damp cloth.
If you wash the blades and discs by
hand, do it carefully. Avoid leaving
them in soapy water where they may
disappear from sight. To clean the
metal blade, fill the work bowl with
soapy water, hold the blade by its
plastic center and move rapidly up
and down on the center shaft of the
bowl. Use of a spray hose is also
effective. If necessary, use a brush.
The work bowl should not be placed
in a microwave oven.

General Guidelines for Preparing Foods for Slicing and Shredding
Food
Long narrow foods like carrots, celery, cucumbers,
and zucchini
10
To Prepare for Slicing
Cut into even lengths about 1" shorter than height of
feed tube. Stand pieces upright in feed tube, flat side
down, adding enough pieces so they cannot tilt.
To Prepare for Shredding
For long shreds, cut into largest size that will fit sideways in feed tube. Stack in feed tube to about
1” from top. For shorter shreds, stand pieces upright
in feed tube, flat side down (as described in
slicing column).
Apples, onions, potatoes, peppers, tomatoes and
other large round fruits and vegetables
Cut one end flat then cut lengthwise in halves or quarters. Pack solidly in feed tube to prevent tilting.
Fill feed tube to about 1" from top.
Use light to moderate pressure.
Same as slicing. Place in feed tube sideways for
longer shreds, or upright for shorter shreds.
Strawberries, mushrooms, radishes and other small,
round fruits and vegetables
Slice off top and bottom, leaving center section. Place
in feed tube, flat side down.
Radishes shred well.
Same as slicing.
Cabbage, Iceberg Lettuce
Cut off top & bottom, leaving center
section. Cut into wedges to fit feed tube upright.
Remove core. Cut top & bottom pieces in similar
wedges.
Do not shred.
Uncooked meat and poultry
(8 oz. maximum at one time)
Use boneless cuts. Cut into feed-tube lengths.
Remove skin if desired. Wrap in plastic wrap and put
in freezer until it feels hard when you try to squeeze it
but is still easily pierced through with tip of sharp knife.
Remove plastic wrap and stand upright in feed tube.
Note: Chicken and beef for stir-fries should be sliced
with the grain. Boned, skinned chicken breast will usually fit when frozen as described above and cut in half
crosswise.
Same as slicing.
Soft cheeses like Mozzarella
Do not slice
Chill in freezer for 5 minutes before processing. Cut
into pieces to fit feed tube. Stand pieces in feed tube
and use light pressure on pusher. Use 4 oz. maximum.
Medium-hard cheeses like Cheddar and Swiss
Cut into pieces to fit feed tube. Stand pieces in feed
tube and use light pressure on pusher.
Same as slicing. Chill 5 minutes in freezer before processing. Use 4 oz. maximum.
Hard cheeses like Parmesan
Do not slice.
Do not shred.
