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.
2
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.

Tips for In-Bowl Chopping
• The bowl has a capacity of 3 cups. For liquid ingredients, do not exceed 13⁄4
cups (MAX LIQUID FILL line on bowl).
• For more control, process by pressing the LO or HI Pulse button briefly then
releasing. Check consistency and continue if desired.
• Tear bread into pieces, then process to make bread crumbs. Break crackers or
cookies into pieces, then process into crumbs for use as recipe ingredients or
pie crusts.
• To chop carrots, celery, mushrooms, green pepper, or onion, cut into 1-inch
chunks and place in bowl. This will result in more uniform consistency.
• Chop nuts; mince parsley, basil, chives, or garlic.
• Puree small amounts of cooked fruit or vegetables for baby food or use as a
base for sauces or soups.
• Do not process raw meat, coffee beans, baking chocolate, or whole, hard spices
