Food Processor Safety
IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS
When using electrical appliances, basic
safety precautions should always be
followed, including the following:
1. Read and save all instructions.
2. To protect against risk of electrical
shock, do not immerse base, motor,
cord, or plug in water or other liquid.
3. Close supervision is necessary when
using this appliance near children.
4. This appliance should not be used by
children.
5. Unplug cord from outlet when not in
use, before putting on or taking off
parts, and before cleaning.
6. Avoid contacting moving parts. Keep
fingers out of discharge opening.
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. Call our
toll-free customer service number for
information on examination, repair or
electrical or mechanical adjustment.
8. The use of attachments not
recommended or sold by Hamilton
Beach/Proctor-Silex, Inc. may cause
fire, electric shock, or injury.
9. Do not use your food processor if any
part is chipped, cracked or broken.
10. Do not use appliance outdoors.
11. Do not let cord hang over edge of table
or counter, or touch hot surfaces.
12. Never feed food into food chute by
hand when slicing or shredding food.
Always use food pusher.
13. The blade and disc are sharp. Handle
carefully. Store out of reach of children.
14. Make sure the blade or disc has come
to a full stop before removing cover.
15. Be certain cover is securely locked in
place before operating appliance.
16. To reduce the risk of injury, never place
cutting blade or disc on base without
first putting bowl properly in place.
17. Keep hands and utensils away from
moving blade and disc while processing
food to reduce the risk of severe
personal injury and/or damage to the
food processor. A rubber scraper may
be used but ONLY when the food
processor is not running.
18. Do not attempt to defeat the cover
interlock mechanism.
19. To reduce the risk of injury, be sure to
insert or remove blade and disc using
hubs provided for this purpose. Use
caution when removing blade and disc
from the bowl, when emptying the bowl,
and when cleaning.
20. Be sure to turn switch to OFF position
after each use. Always use the pusher
to clear the food chute. When this
method is not possible, turn the motor
off and disassemble unit to remove the
remaining food.
21. The appliance is not intended for commercial, professional or industrial use. It
is designed and built exclusively for
domestic use only.
22. Never use appliance for a longer period
or with a larger amount of ingredients
other than that recommended by
Hamilton Beach/Proctor-Silex, Inc.
23. The maximum rating of this unit is
based on using the S-blade. Using the
Slicing/Shredding Disc may draw
significantly less power.
24. Do not place on or near a hot gas or
electric burner or in a heated oven.
25. Do not use appliance for other than
intended use.
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS!

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.
To avoid an electrical circuit overload, do
not use another high wattage appliance on
the same circuit with your food processor.
The length of the cord used on this appliance
was selected to reduce the hazards of
becoming tangled in, or tripping over a
longer cord. If a longer cord is necessary,
an approved extension cord may be used.
The electrical rating of the extension cord
must be equal to or greater than the rating
of the food processor. Care must be taken
to arrange the extension cord so that it will
not drape over the countertop or tabletop
where it can be pulled on by children or
accidentally tripped over.
Before First Use
Unpack processor. Handle the S-Blade and
Slicing/Shredding Disc carefully; they are
very sharp. Wash all parts except the base
in hot, soapy water. Rinse then dry. These
parts can also be placed in the dishwasher.
Processing Tips and Techniques
• For a uniform consistency when
chopping, leave room in the bowl for
the food to be tossed around.
• Also for a more uniform consistency,
start with pieces of food that are
similar in size. Carrots, for example,
should all be cut in 1-inch chunks.
Do not process 4-inch pieces with
1⁄2-inch pieces.
• This food processor is excellent to
chop, mix, slice, or shred most
foods. However, to maintain peak
performance, we do not recommend
the following: grinding grain, coffee
beans or spices; slicing frozen meat;
or crushing ice.
• Do not puree or mash starchy
vegetables like potatoes. They will
be overprocessed in a second and
turn gummy.
• Operating time will depend on quantity
of food being processed. Most foods
can be sliced, chopped, or shredded
in seconds. Do not operate processor
for more than one minute at a time.
If processing large quantities, let the
processor rest about one minute
before continuing.
• To slice or shred cheese, select a
firm cheese like cheddar, Monterey
Jack, or Swiss. Place cheese in
freezer for 30 minutes to one hour
before processing. Always use
highest speed of food processor.

Using Your Food Processor
NOTES:
• Always lock the bowl onto base
before putting on any blade or disc.
Make sure blade or disc is securely
in place before using.
• With this food processor you can
use the continuous feed chute for
slicing and shredding into a separate
container. The continuous feed chute
allows slicing or shredding foods not
limited to the processor bowl capacity.
Hints!
• The bowl will hold 9 cups of dry
ingredients or 2 cups of liquid.
Do not overfill.
• Do not use your food processor to
crush ice.
• For consistent texture, foods should
be cut into 1-inch cubes before
mincing or chopping with the S-blade.
How to Lock the Bowl
Line up dots on base and bowl handle.
Turn bowl in direction of arrow. This
locks the bowl to the base.
NOTE: The food processor will not
work unless the bowl is locked.
How to Lock the Cover
Line up dot on cover with the dot on
bowl handle. Place cover on bowl. Turn
cover in direction of arrow. This locks
the cover onto the bowl.
NOTE: The food processor will not
work unless the cover is locked.

Processing Using S-Blade
The S-blade can be used to coarsely
chop, finely mince, mix, or puree food
to a smooth consistency.
1. Make sure the Control Switch is turned
to OFF ( O ) and the unit is unplugged.
2. Lock the bowl onto base. (See “How
to Lock the Bowl” on page 5.)
3. Place the S-blade onto motor shaft
of food processor in center of bowl.
Turn slowly until blade drops into
place. Handle carefully; the blade
is sharp.
4. Lock cover onto bowl. (See “How to
Lock the Cover” on page 5.) Insert
food pusher into food chute.
5. Pull all of cord out of cord storage.
This will help air flow and keep the
motor cool. Plug in unit and process
food. The processing speed and time
will determine the finished consistency
of the food. The Pulse
button
can help you avoid overprocessing.

highest speed of food processor.
• The Reversible Slicer/Shredder Disc
has a slicing blade on one side and
shredding teeth on the other. Place
on motor shaft with desired cutting
edge facing up.
• To julienne vegetables, slice then
remove from bowl and restack the
vegetables. Pack into food chute with
slices vertical. Slice again to make
matchstick cut vegetables.
1. Make sure the Control Switch is turned
to OFF ( O ) and the unit is unplugged.

4. Cut food to fit food chute. Pack food
chute tightly with food. Insert food
pusher in chute. Always use the
food pusher to feed food into the
chute. NEVER PUSH FOOD
THROUGH CHUTE WITH HANDS.
5. Plug in unit and process food.
6. Select speed. While pressing on
food pusher, push ON ( l ) or
PULSE
to process food.
7. When food chute is empty, push
OFF ( O ) or release from PULSE
position. Wait until blade has
stopped rotating before removing
cover.
Continuous Processing
IMPORTANT: When using the
continuous feed chute the food gate
must be removed and the continuous
feed disc must be in place.
1. Make sure the Control Switch is turned
to OFF ( O ) and the unit is unplugged.
2. Lock the bowl onto base. (See “How
to Lock the Bowl” on page 5.)
3. Place the continuous feed disc,
ribbed side up, onto the motor shaft.
Turn the disc slowly until it drops into
position (level with top of bowl).

5. REMOVE FOOD GATE FROM
CONTINUOUS FEED COVER TO
PREVENT DAMAGE TO UNIT.
6. Lock on cover. (See “How to Lock
the Cover” on page 5.) Place bowl
under feed chute.
7. Plug in unit and select speed.
Process food. Check the continuous
feed chute frequently to make sure
the opening is not blocked. If
blocked, turn unit off and unplug.
Clear blockage, then reassemble
and continue processing.
NOTE: When using the continuous feed
chute, some food may fall into the food
processor bowl.
Motor Shaft
Hint!
4. Select desired side of reversible
slicing/shredding disc and place that
side up on the motor shaft.
We recommend not using the continuous
feed chute feature when shredding root
vegetables (carrots, potatoes, etc.). As
with most continuous feed processors,
shredded moist vegetables may clog in the
chute. It is best to shred these vegetables
into the food processor bowl. Slicing these
root vegetables while using the continuous
feed chute will not present a problem.
