500W
Food Processor and Blender
1912 Midland Metal Spinners was founded by
George Cadman, who was then 65 years old, as
a metal holloware manufacturing company, in St.
Mark’s Street, Wolverhampton. They later moved
into the Tower and Fort Works in Pelham Street,
which ultimately gave rise to the famous Tower
brand name.
1961 Tower became one of the largest
manufacturers of aluminium holloware, electric
kettles, tea pots and other household articles with
over 1,000 employees.
1974 Russell Hobbs took ownership of the
expanding Tower brand.
1937 Tower exhibited some of their latest holloware
designs at the British Industries Fair. As you can
see from the original poster, their stand No. A410
must have been a great sight as it promoted their
“Beautiful, inexpensive, untarnishable Plate, at
prices all can afford to pay”.
The Easiest Way to a Healthy Diet
The 2 in 1 Food Processor from Tower is the
perfect addition to any kitchen and helps take
the stress out of preparing healthy and nutritious

3 USING YOUR APPLIANCE
Before you assemble the food processor, ensure
that the power cord is unplugged.
1.
Fit the detachable shaft onto the power
unit.
2.
Then fit the bowl. Place the handle towards
the back and turn anticlockwise until it
locks.
3.
Fit an attachment over the drive shaft.
Always fit the bowl and attachment onto the
machine before adding ingredients.
4.
Fit the lid ensuring the top of the drive shaft
locates into the centre of the lid. Do not use
the lid to operate the processor; always use
the on/off control.
5.
Switch on and select a speed. The
processor won’t work if the bowl and lid
are fitted incorrectly. Use the pulse for short
bursts. The pulse will operate for as long as
the control is held in position.
6.
Reverse the above procedure to remove the
lid, attachments and bowl. Always switch
off before removing the lid.
7.
Select a speed or use the pulse control.
Allow all liquids to cool to room temperature
before placing them in the blender.
Using The Attachments
Knife blade
•
The knife blade is the most versatile of all
the attachments.
•
The length of the processing time will
determine the texture achieved.
•
For coarser textures use the pulse control.
•
Use the knife blade for cake and pastry
making, chopping raw and cooked meat,
vegetables, nuts, pate, dips, puréeing
soups and to also make crumbs from
biscuits and bread.
HINTS:
• Cut food such as meat, bread, vegetables
into cubes approximately 2cm before
processing.
•
Fit the sealing ring into the blade unit
ensuring the seal is located correctly.
Leaking will occur if the seal is damaged or
not fitted correctly.
Biscuits should be broken into pieces
and added down the feed tube whilst the
machine is running.
•
When making pastry use fat straight from
the fridge cut into 2cm cubes.
2.
Screw the jug onto the blade unit.
3.
Put your ingredients into the jug
•
Take care not to over-process.
4.
Put the blending cap in the lid, then turn.
5.
Turn the lid in an anticlockwise direction to
lock onto the jug.
6.
Place the liquidiser onto the power unit and
turn to lock.

Safety and Instruction Manual
To use the cutting discs
Reversible slicing/shredding discs
1.
Fit the drive shaft and bowl onto the power
unit.
•
Use the shredding side for cheese, carrots,
potatoes and foods of a similar texture.
2.
Holding by the centre grip, place the disc
onto the drive shaft with the appropriate
side up.
•
Use the slicing side for cheese, carrots,
potatoes, cabbage, cucumber, courgette,
beetroot and onions.
3.
Fit the lid.
•
4.
Choose which size feed tube you want to
use. The pusher contains a smaller feed
tube for processing individual items or thin
ingredients. To use the small feed tube first put the large pusher inside the feed
tube. To use the large feed tube - use both
pushers together.
Use to cut: potatoes for julienne style
French fries; firm ingredients for salads,
garnishes, casseroles and stir fries (e.g.
carrot, swede, courgette, cucumber).
5.
Put the food in the feed tube.
6.
Switch on and push down evenly with the
pusher- never put your fingers in the feed
tube.
HINTS
• Use fresh ingredients.
•
Don’t cut food too small. Fill the width of
the large feed tube fairly full. This prevents
the food from slipping sideways during
processing. Alternatively use the small feed
tube.
•
When using the chipper disc, place
ingredients horizontally.
•
When slicing or shredding: food placed
upright comes out shorter than food placed
horizontally.
•
There will always be a small amount of
waste on the plate or in the bowl after
processing
WARNING: Never remove the lid until the cutting
disc has completely stopped.
Handle the cutting discs with care - they are
extremely sharp.

4 TROUBLE SHOOTING & FAQ’S
The food is unevenly
processed
Make sure your ingredients are cut into even, ½ - 1 inch pieces before
processing.
Do not overload the processor. Process in batches to allow all ingredients
to process evenly.
My food processor
moves around the
countertop too much
during use.
The Food Processor is fitted with heavy duty suction feet. Check that they
are clean and dry.
This can happen with heavier loads as the motor is required to work
harder, ensure the maximum load capacity is not exceeded.
The motor does not
start.
There is a built in safety lock to prevent the motor from starting if the food
processor is not properly assembled. Make sure the food processor bowl
or blender jar with blade unit is correctly assembled.
Some food is left
on the disc after
processing.
Leftover food on the disc is a normal occurrence. Remove the food,
carefully from the disc and chop by hand.
Food falls over in the
feed tube.
When standing food in the feed tube, make sure you pack it fully for best
results. This will stop food from tilting.
