If the blades or discs should jam while
processing, ensure the POWER/OFF button
is pressed to switch the motor OFF. Switch
off the power outlet. Remove the processing
lid and adjust any food wedged between
the blade and the bowl or in the disc.
Replace the lid and proceed as normal. If this
occurs again, the processing bowl may be
overloaded, so remove some of the food and
process in smaller batches.
NOTE:
The food processor is designed so the
motor will not operate without the
processing bowl and lid are correctly
locked into position and the pusher
inserted into the feed chute. In the
event that the food processor starts
without the lid correctly locked into
position, immediately disconnect
at the power outlet and return to
your local Catler Service Centre for

BASIC FOOD PROCESSING TECHNIQUES
The food processor can process food in
a variety of ways depending on which blade
or disc you choose.
CHOPPING WITH THE QUAD®
PROCESSING BLADE
The quad blade chops raw and cooked
food to the consistency required, from
coarsely chopped to minced. For many
large processing tasks, the four blades will
cut the processing time needed to achieve
the desired results. The result depends on
the type of food and how long the food is
processed. Always remember to place the
quad blade into the processing bowl before
adding the food.
NOTE:
To avoid over-processing check the
consistency frequently. For many
processing tasks we recommend to
use the Pulse button, as it may only
take a few seconds to fully process
the food to the desired consistency.
If necessary, press the POWER/OFF
button, unlock the lid and use the
spatula to scrape down the sides of
the bowl to ensure even processing.
Raw Vegetables, Fruit and Cooked Meats
Trim and cut food into 2.5cm cubes. Process
no more than 4 cups at a time using the Pulse
button at 1-2 second intervals until chopped
to desired size or consistency.
Spanish Onion wedges
Raw meat, chicken and fish
Trim and cut food into 2.5cm cubes. Ensure
all bones are removed. Chill well until firm as
this will help the quad blade to cut through
the food more readily. Process no more than
4 cups (or 600g of raw meat) at a time using
the START/PAUSE button until chopped or
minced to desired size or consistency.
Cubed Beef
13
BASIC FOOD PROCESSING TECHNIQUES
Chopped Spanish Onion
Minced Beef
NOTE:
Heavy loads of meat may stall the
motor. This is indicated by the blade
turning slowly and the meat only
moving slowly around the bowl and
not processing. If this occurs remove
the meat and process in two batches.
Garlic, chilli and ginger
For garlic, peel cloves and leave whole.
For chilli, leave whole (remove seeds for
milder chilli). For ginger, peel and cut into
2.5cm cubes. Process until chopped to
desired consistency. Store chopped garlic
or chilli mixed with a little oil in an airtight
container in refrigerator for up to 1 week.
Mix ginger with a little sherry. If adding garlic,
chilli or ginger to other ingredients, drop
whole pieces down feed chute while the
motor is running.
Basil leaves
Nuts
Process no more than 4 cups (250g) shelled
nuts at a time using the PULSE button at
1-2 second intervals until chopped to desired
size.
Shelled peanuts
Whole chillies
Chopped chillies
Herbs
Wash and dry herbs thoroughly. Remove any
coarse stems. Process no more than
2 bunches (approx. 4 cups) at a time using
the PULSE button at 1-2 second intervals
until chopped to desired size or consistency.
Chopped basil
Chopped peanuts
Dried fruit
As dried fruit can be sticky, place in freezer
for about 10 minutes (this prevents the fruit
sticking to the blades). Process no more than
4 cups at a time using the PULSE button at
1-2 second intervals until chopped to desired
size or consistency.
BASIC FOOD PROCESSING TECHNIQUES
14
Soft breadcrumbs
NOTE:
If chopping fruit to add to cake batter,
process the fruit before making the
batter, adding a little flour from recipe
quantity to prevent fruit sticking to
quad blade.
Break stale bread into chunks (fresh bread
will stick to blades). Process no more than
4 cups at a time using the PULSE button at
1-2 second intervals until crumbed to desired
consistency.
NOTE:
For best results when making bread
crumbs, add one slice at a time.
NOTE:
700g pkt sliced bread yields
approximately 10 cup soft
breadcrumbs. Freeze in one cup
portions for later use.
Whole dried fruit
Chopped dried fruit
Citrus peel
Remove the peel from the fruit using
a vegetable peeler and cut into 2.5cm pieces.
Process no more than 4 cups at a time
together with ˝ cup granulated sugar and
using the PULSE button at 1-2 second
intervals until chopped to desired size.
NOTE:
The white pith between the skin
and citrus flesh is bitter, so carefully
remove the citrus peel ensuring the
white pith remains on the fruit.
Hard boiled eggs
After cooking eggs to hard boiled stage, allow
to cool then remove shells and cut eggs in
half. Process no more than 12 eggs at a time
using the PULSE button at 1-2 second intervals

button at 1-2 second intervals until crumbed
to desired consistency.
PUREEING WITH THE QUAD®
PROCESSING BLADE
The quad blade purees raw and cooked
food to the consistency required, including
baby food. For many large processing tasks,
the four blades will cut the processing time
needed to achieve the desired results.
Always remember to place the quad blade
into the bowl before adding the food.
NOTE:
After pureeing the food, carefully
remove the quad blade and use the
spatula to scrape any food adhering to
the blade and the processing bowl.

oil through the small feed chute and process
until the mixture forms a soft, elastic ball
of dough. Do not over process. Transfer the
dough to a lightly floured surface and knead
for a further 5 minutes if necessary until soft
and pliable. Place dough into large, greased
mixing bowl and stand covered in a warm
place until doubled in size. Turn the dough
onto a lightly floured surface and knead
again until smooth and elastic. Shape the
dough, allow to rise in a warm area then bake
in a hot oven.
Insert the dough blade into the bowl. Place
melted ingredients, followed by liquid
ingredients then dry ingredients into the
processing bowl. Process ingredients using
the PULSE button until just combined.
If necessary, interrupt the processing, remove
the lid and scrape the mixture from the sides
of the bowl. Replace the lid and continue but
do not over-process the mixture. Add dried
fruit, nuts etc. after this step using PULSE
button until folded through evenly.
SHREDDING AND GRATING WITH
THE REVERSIBLE SHREDDER
Biscuit dough
Insert the dough blade (or you can use the
quad blade) into the bowl. Place softened
butter and sugar into the processing bowl.
Process using the START/PAUSE button until
lightly creamed. With the motor running,
add eggs one at a time down the small feed
chute, mixing well after each addition. Place
dry ingredients into the processing bowl
and use the PULSE button until ingredients
are just combined. Add dried fruit, nuts, etc.
through the small feed chute and use the
Pulse button until the additions are folded
through evenly.
Prepare fruit or vegetables by washing or
peeling first.
First cut the food to fit the length of the feed
chute (no more than 14cm). Food can be
shredded length ways to make a long shred.
If food fits without the need to cut, trim one
end so that it sits flat in feed chute.
Reversible Shredder
1. Place either the coarse or fine shredding
disc onto the disc spindle and then into
the processing bowl.
2. Prepare food as directed in the following
food categories or recipes.
Both thick and thin grating can be achieved
by using either the coarse or fine shredding
disc. Use one side of the disc for coarse
grating. Carefully turn over the disc so that
the process required is facing upwards.
BASIC FOOD PROCESSING TECHNIQUES

Cheese
Caution should always be taken when
processing cheese in a food processor.
For soft cheese such as Mozzarella and
Bocconcini, partially freeze, until firm
otherwise it will jam in the blades. For hard
cheese such as Parmesan, check first that
it is not too hard otherwise it will damage
the blades - the cheese should slice easily
with a sharp knife. For round cheese such
as Mozzarella and Bocconcini, slice one end
and pack into the feed chute so the flat end
is facing the disc. For wedge-shaped cheese,
pack 2 pieces side by side into chute to form
a rectangular shape (one piece with tip
facing down, other piece with tip facing up).
Slice or shred.
SLICING, WITH ADJUSTABLE
SLICING DISC
The adjustable slicer disc slices raw fruit
and vegetables to a consistent thickness
required. From fine 0.5mm to think 8.0mm
via 24 adjustable settings. For many large
processing tasks, the adjustable slicing
disc will cut the processing time needed
to achieve the desired results. The result
depends on the type of food and how the
food is positioned into the feed chute.
For smaller foods, the small feed chute
provides greater control for adjustable
slicing. To adjust slicing height, hold the
adjustable slicing disc outer edge with
one hand, turn the adjustment dial on the
underside of the disc to set the height. An
arrow graphic indicates the height to which
the blade is set.
NOTE:
There may be slight variation in slice
thickness depending on the food
being processed and force applied
with the feed chute pusher.
Do not overfill the feed chute before slicing.
The pusher will not activate the unit if the
chute is overfilled. A Max level graphic
indicates the maximum fill level.
Adjustable slicer
1. Place the adjustable slicer onto the disc
spindle in the processing bowl.
2. Prepare food as directed in the following
food categories or recipes.
3. Pack food into the feed chute as directed
in the following food categories. For
smaller size food leave the large pusher
in place and use the small pusher
instead. The food should fit snugly so it is
supported upright in the feed chute, but
not so tight that it prevents the food from
easily moving down the feed chute when
guided by the food pusher.
4. Process using the START/PAUSE button
whilst at same time, gently guiding the
food down the feed chute using the food
pusher. Never force the food down as
this will damage the discs. Apply light
pressure for soft foods such as tomatoes
and bananas; medium pressure for firmer
foods such as potatoes and apples; and
firm pressure for hard foods such as
Parmesan cheese and deli meats such
as salami.
5. Repeat this process until all food has
been sliced, shredded or grated.
WARNING:
ADJUSTABLE SLICING DISC BLADE IS SHARP, KEEP HANDS AWAY FROM THE BLADE.

BASIC FOOD PROCESSING TECHNIQUES
Round fruit and vegetables
Long fruit and vegetables
Prepare fruit or vegetables by washing or
peeling, and coring or seeding (if necessary).
For small fruit and vegetables (e.g. kiwi fruit,
roma tomatoes), trim one end so the food sits
flat in the feed chute.
For large fruit and vegetables (e.g. apples),
cut in half (if required) to fit in the feed chute.
Pack into the feed chute with the adjustable
slicing disc at the slot number required for
the thickness.
Prepare fruit or vegetables by washing or
peeling. First cut the food to fit the length
of the feed chute (no more than 9cm high
if loading vertically, 14cm long if loading
horizontally). If food fits without the need
to cut, trim one end so that it sits flat in feed
chute or the food should be able to lie on the
side if you require a long thin slice
of vegetable or fruit.
Pack food vertically or horizontally, into the
feed chute with cut side facing disc.
The small feed chute can be used for long
vegetables such as carrots and zucchini.

WARNING:
WHEN SLICING AND SHREDDING, ALWAYS USE THE FOOD PUSHER TO GUIDE FOOD
DOWN THE FEED CHUTE. NEVER PUT YOUR FINGERS OR SPATULA INTO THE FEED
CHUTE. ALWAYS WAIT FOR THE DISC TO STOP SPINNING BEFORE REMOVING THE LID.

Leafy vegetables
Deli meats
For cabbage, wash and shake off excess
water. Cut into wedges to fit feed chute.
For lettuce, separate leaves, wash and dry
thoroughly, then roll up and pack vertically
into feed chute. Slice or shred.
Cut the meat to fit the length of the feed
chute (no more than 14cm).
Pack into the feed chute with cut side facing
disc.
NOTE:
Slicing or shredding is not
recommended for spinach. To process
spinach, wash and dry thoroughly, tear
into pieces and use chopping blade
or quad blade.
Salami in chute
Sliced salami

MINI-BOWL FUNCTION
The mini processing bowl can be positioned
inside the main processing bowl and is used
for processing small food quantities.
A mini processing blade is provided which
fits inside the mini bowl and can be used for
used for chopping, mixing and blending
a variety of foods.
Do not place the mini processing blade
into the main processing bowl. Main bowl
processing attachments will not operate in
the mini processing bowl.
JULIENNE DISC
The Julienne disc is positioned on the disc
spindle in the main processing bowl and cuts
food into long thin strips. Common items
to be julienned include carrots, zucchini,
potato and celery. For longer strips, use the
large feed chute and lie the foods down
horizontally. For shorter “match stick” size
strips use the small feed chute and pusher.
LARGE CHIPPER
The chip cutting disc is positioned on the
spindle in the main processing bowl and
cuts food into long chunky lengths. This
disc is used primarily for potatoes, however,
a variety of foods can be used for this
application. If using large potatoes, lie them
down in feed chute for extra long strips.
For best results, position the pusher so that
firm pressure is applied onto the food to be
processed, before pressing the START/PAUSE
button.
NOTE:
When processing with the chipping
disc, the last piece of each food
processed may become caught in the
cutting blade. This is normal, however,
the disc could become unbalanced.
To reduce vibration we recommend
the pusher is quickly removed from
the feed chute after each piece
of food is processed so the motor
stops quickly. Insert the next piece
of food and repeat the process.
With some foods it may be necessary to
remove the lid. Remove the disc from the
bowl, and clear the lodged food before
proceeding.

Do not fill the bowl above the liquid max
level for wet ingredients. Always add drier
or thicker ingredients to the processing
bowl prior to adding fluids.
Note that there is a MAX THICK LIQUID
and MAX THIN LIQUID markings on the
processing bowl. Thick liquid is soup
and sauces (such as a tomato base
puree). Thin liquid is water base stocks,
milkshakes etc.
To avoid over-processing when coarsely
chopping food, frequently check
consistency. It is also recommended to
use the pulse function to avoid overprocessing food. Use the spatula to
scrape down the sides of bowl to ensure
an even texture.
If chopping fruit to add to cake batter,
process before making batter, adding
a little flour from quantity recommended
in recipe to prevent fruit sticking to
blades.
When crumbing bread for stuffing, use
stale bread as fresh bread sticks to blades.
Add liquid to pureed foods after
processing.
Use the small feed chute when adding
liquid to processed mixtures.
FOOD PROCESSING AT A GLANCE

Peanut butter made in the food processor
will separate on standing. Stir just before
use.
When processing a variety of ingredients,
it is not necessary to remove them after
each addition, unless they exceed the
MAX level marking.
When mixing dry and wet ingredients,
the mixture will process more evenly
if the wet ingredients are placed in the
bowl preceding the dry ingredients.
Egg white foams used for aerating
mixtures such as fruit sorbet, work
successfully. A minimum of 6 egg whites
successfully using a minimum of
6 egg whites. It is recommended to use
the whisk disc and pulse function to
maximise the effect.
Beating egg whites for pavlova or
meringue requires lengthy beating to
dissolve the sugar and entrap the air.
It is recommended to use the whisking
disc for best results.
Before slicing and shredding, trim the
food to fit the feed chute. Do not overfill
beyond the level indicated.
Before slicing and shredding softer
structured foods (such as meat), partially
freeze until just firm.
CARE, CLEANING & STORAGE
CARE AND CLEANING
When finished processing, switch the food
processor off at the power outlet and unplug
the power cord.
Motor base
Wipe the motor base with a clean, damp
cloth after each use. Dry thoroughly with
a soft, clean cloth.
Food stains and odours
Foods such as carrot may leave a stain on
plastic parts whilst other foods such as garlic
may leave a strong odour. To remove either,
soak the parts for 5 minutes in 2 litres of
water with 1/2 cup lemon juice added.
Rinse and wash as normal.
STORAGE
•
Processing bowl, lid and food pusher
Hand wash in hot, soapy water using a mild
detergent. Do not use a scourer or abrasive
cleaners as they will scratch the plastic
surface. The plastic parts may occasionally
be washed in the dishwasher (top shelf
only). It is not recommended on a regular
basis, as prolonged exposure to hot water
temperatures and harsh detergents will
damage and shorten the life of the plastic.
NOTE:
Do not place food pusher in the
dishwasher as the heat may deform it.
Processing QUAD® blade, dough blade and
discs
Hand wash the bowl and lid. Use the cleaning
brush accessory to scrub stubborn foods
off the blades and discs. The handle end of
the brush is designed for scraping. To avoid
accidental cuts, do not leave quad blade or
discs to soak in sudsy water. The quad blade,
dough blade, discs and spindle can also be
washed in the dishwasher (top shelf only).
NOTE:
The quad blade cover can be assembled
onto the quad blade while it is placed in
the dishwasher for added safety.
•
•
•
•
•
•
Ensure the food processor is switched off
and unplugged at the power outlet.
Ensure all parts of the food processor are
clean and dry.
Carefully grasp the quad blade using
the spindle. The quad blade and mini
processing blade, should be stored in the
storage box when not in use. It is good
practise to store the quad blade inside its
cover and then inside the storage box. The
mini processing bowl can be stored inside
the main processing bowl when not in use.
Place the lid on top of the processing
bowl but DO NOT turn clockwise to the
locked position.
Place the food pusher, with the
measuring cup inserted, into position in
the feed chute.
It is advisable not to store the food
processor with the processing bowl or
lid locked onto the processing bowl as
unnecessary strain will be placed on the
operating and safety switches on the
processing bowl and the motor base.
Place the discs in the storage container
and store in a safe place out of the reach
of children to avoid accidental cuts. It is
not recommended to store the discs in
a drawer with other utensils.
NOTE:
The large chipper disc must be placed in
the back slot in the storage container.
