mixing tips
For best chopping results add ingredients gradually via the feed tube. This appliance is not
suitable for frozen mangos, un-melted chocolate, coffee beans, seeds, uncooked-rice etc.
Generally, there is not one set speed for an entire recipe. You will need to change the speed
of the mixer depending on what stage of the recipe you are working on. This is communicated
in the recipe section.
1. When processing liquids, such as soups with the wand, always ensure the foot is
submerged in the liquid to prevent splashing. Do not process uncooked vegetables.
2. When chopping small quantities of ingredients use a low speed and a pulsing action.
3. Do not process ice in the chopping bowl.
4. For best results pulse repeatedly, holding the button for no longer than 1 second.
Ensure the hand blender
is unplugged. Attach the
gearbox to the main body.
Ensure the gearbox is
securely attached into the
main body.

Operation and rest times:
* Do not blend or process for more than 1 minute in any 4 minute period, if you accidentally
do, unplug and leave the hand blender to fully cool to room temperature before re-using.
**Rest appliance for 1 minute per every minute of whisking.
• Roughly chop ingredients before blending for best results.
•Hold the chopper bowl or mixing jug steady during use, use a high sided bowl for whizzing
even small amounts to prevent splattering.
•The variable speed control can vary the speed of the motor from 7000-16000rpm. For best
results start blending on the lowest setting and gradually increase the blending speed.
•For best results work through the ingredients with a gentle up and down movement of the
main body.
•To store a mixture in the jug, cover and refrigerate as required.
The mixing jug is ideal for whipping up a quick smoothie or making frothy coffee. Blending is
fast, easy and clean. Use the wand for mixtures that include solids such as fruits, ice cream etc.
•Make homemade smoothie in minutes. Even fruit which is just past its best can be used. Most
soft fruits are suitable. Stir into cereal for a nutritious breakfast. To serve as a drink, pour the
mixture into a glass and add milk, yogurt and/or fruit juice.
•No need to go out for a frothy coffee. Bring some semi-skimmed milk to the boil in a pan
and whizz to a froth using the turbo button. Pour into a cup of hot coffee and stir in gently,
also good with instant coffee.
•For homemade hot chocolate, heat a cupful of milk until just boiling. Remove from heat and
drop in a couple of blocks of chocolate. Wait for it to soften and then whizz with the Dualit
hand blender using the power button, then change to the turbo setting to froth.
•Chop onions and garlic by putting into the chopper and whizzing, no smelly fingers!
•Grate cheeses in moments, ready for adding to sauces or sprinkling over baked dishes. Chop
into 1.5cm cubes, place in chopper bowl and whizz.
•Produce fresh breadcrumbs with ease. Slightly stale white bread makes the fluffiest crumbs.
Remove the crusts and cut into cubes. Half fill the chopper bowl and whizz until fine. Make in
batches and store in the freezer.
•Nourishing, healthy soups can be quickly made in the chopper using cooked leftovers. Root
vegetables, tomatoes, pumpkin, squashes and courgettes are all suitable. Use flavourings such
as curry powder, ginger, cumin, or sprigs of thyme, and a dash of soy sauce to add piquancy.
• To obtain the greatest volume when beating egg whites, be sure the bowl and beater are
completely clean and dry before use. The smallest amount of grease or water can prevent
the whites from aerating.
• The term “soft peaks” means that the egg white barely supports itself. When the head of the
mixer is lifted, the egg white mixture will curl and may fall from the beater.
•Ingredients are whisked to incorporate air. By tipping a bowl at a safe angle, even more air
can get into the mixture, resulting in light mixtures and increased volume.
•Whisked egg whites provide the base for soufflés, mousses and all types of meringues.
•The mixing bowl must be spotless as a speck of grease will stop egg white from holding air.
Rub the bowl with a cut lemon if you have any doubts.
•Start slowly and only use a faster speed when the mixture starts to turn white.

daily uses for your hand blender
The importance of good
quality and fresh ingredients
will make a huge difference
to any recipe. Remember,
the fresher the better and
quality over quantity.
• For the best results, try to
use good quality oils and
condiments. Sour, bitter or
rancid oil can spoil a recipe,
whereas a drizzle of good
quality, cold-pressed olive
oil can lift a dish.
• Sea salts, such as Maldon
other sea salt crystals, are
more expensive than table
salt, but are unsullied by
processing and additives,
and well worth the extra
expense. They taste better
and are a pleasure to handle.
• Pepper is always best freshly
milled and Parmesan cheese
should be freshly grated.
daily uses for your hand blender
Get in the habit of using your
hand blender and bring a bit
of fun into the preparation of
quick meals, snacks and
semi-skimmed milk to the
boil in a pan and whizz to a
froth using the turbo
button. Pour into a cup
of hot coffee and stir in
gently without breaking the
bubbles - also good with
instant coffee.
• Fruit smoothies are
fashionable, healthy and a
great pick-me-up for the
“morning after”. Break a
banana into the tall jug and
add a handful of one or
two fruits, e.g. strawberries,
blueberries, pear or apple,
with a teaspoon of honey
and/or wheatgerm. Blitz

•Why buy salad dressings
and marinades when
you can whizz up fresh
The Dualit hand blender is
perfect for making smooth,
shiny vinaigrettes and
dressings. Balsamic,
mustard and soy dressing
is lovely on a salad and
doubles as a marinade for
lamb or chicken. Put 2
teaspoons Dijon mustard
into a medium sized bowl.
Add 2 tbsp soy sauce, 2
tbsp balsamic vinegar and
some sea salt and pepper.

blades still running pour in
a teacup of olive oil, about
200ml (7fl oz), and 1 tbsp

about 6 fresh mint leaves

some, and pulse until
coarsely chopped.

• Beat eggs quickly and
smoothly with your
blender’s whisk – especially
when you have three or
more to prepare.
• To the rescue – lumpy

This luxurious soup is a real winter warmer, offering a simple yet gourmet meal. We have used
the vegetables listed below, but you could substitute with leftover winter vegetables or fresh
produce from your vegetable patch. Don’t be afraid to experiment.
• In a large saucepan, heat the olive oil and cook the onion and garlic, stirring gently at regular
intervals. After ten minutes, the mixture should be sweet, soft, fragrant and lightly coloured.

simmer until all is tender – this takes about 20-30 minutes. Remove the squash quarters from
the mixture, scoop out the contents and place back into the saucepan, discarding the skin.
• Blend on a low speed with Dualit’s Hand Blender. The anti-suction wand gives you full
control in the pan. Blend until smooth and remove the Hand Blender from the saucepan.
The soup is cooked when the vegetables can be crushed against the side of the pan easily
with the back of a spoon.

onion, roughly chopped
•200ml half fat
•25g butter or 2 tbsp olive oil crème fraîche
•A squeeze of fresh lemon
juice, if using single cream

• 3 shakes of
Worcestershire sauce
serves 6 TO 8

• 1 tsp lemon juice
• Salt and pepper
The Dualit hand blender brings out the best qualities of the smooth flesh of a ripe avocado. Its
soft, buttery miniature makes it ideal for a quick sauce to accompany a piece of cold salmon.
A trick to retain the green colour of an avocado sauce is to keep it out of contact with the air.
Always serve it as soon as possible, but meanwhile store it in a tall beaker, or similar shaped
container, and cover with cling film touching the surface to exclude as much air as possible.
• Place avocados, Worcestershire sauce and yogurt in a large bowl, and blitz until smooth.
• Add salt and pepper and lemon juice, to taste, and whizz again to incorporate.

• 1 tsp Chinese five spice
• 1 tsp sea salt crystals
• 1 large sweet potato,
about 400g
• A good knob of butter
• 1 tbsp chopped fresh coriander or parsley
• Freshly ground black pepper
Healthy sweet potato (perfect for low GI diets) makes a deliciously satisfying mash. Its slight
sweetness makes it an excellent accompaniment to roasted spicy duck legs. Make the mash
while the duck is cooking.
• Preheat oven to 180C/350F/M4.
• Prick the duck legs well so the fat can escape during cooking.
• Mix together the spice and salt and rub half into the duck skin.
• Roast in a shallow dish for 30 minutes, pouring off the excess fat halfway through.
• Meanwhile, peel the potato, cut into chunks and boil for 10-12 minutes until just tender.
Drain and return to the pan with the remaining spiced salt and butter.
• With the Dualit hand blender, whizz to a smooth purée. Season with pepper and stir in the
chopped herbs.

approximately 3cm
•2 fat cloves garlic, peeled
and roughly chopped
•A small bunch (40g) of fresh

•2 tsp ground coriander
•1 tsp ground cumin
•1 tsp ground fenugreek, if
serves 4
•1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
•Salt and freshly ground black
Use your Dualit hand blender to make a fresh and aromatic curry paste (enough for a curry for
four) which can be stirred into a stir-fry of chicken, salmon or prawns for a delicious quick meal.
• Slit open the chilli, remove the seeds and stalk then roughly chop and place in a medium
sized bowl.
• Roughly chop the ginger (no need to peel) and add into the bowl along with the garlic and half the oil.
• Snip in the coriander stalks but reserve the leaf sprigs.
• Pulse with the Dualit hand blender to a chunky purée then add the remaining oil, coconut cream, if using, ground spices, lemon juice and some salt and pepper.
• Whizz until smooth then add the coriander sprigs and pulse for a few seconds to incorporate
• Scoop the mixture into a lidded jar and keep in the fridge until required.
The paste makes enough for 3-4 chicken breasts or salmon steaks, or 400g of
peeled prawns.
• To make the curry, stir fry the chicken breasts (chopped), the salmon (cubed), or the prawns in a little hot oil for 2-3 minutes (the chicken will take longer than the fish – about 6-8 minutes, depending on the size of the pieces) then mix in the curry paste.
• Stir well, cook for 2-3 more minutes and add a small cup of water to thin a little.
• Simmer for a couple more minutes and serve straight away with steaming basmati rice.

•4 juicy oranges
•Cream or natural yogurt,
•1 - 2 tsp flower honey
•2 sheets leaf gelatine or 1½ to serve, optional
tsp powdered gelatine
Passion fruits and pomegranates add an exotic flavour when combined with other juices but
the seeds can get in the way. This can be solved by pulping them with the Dualit hand blender
and then straining the juice.
For best flavours choose well ripened fruits and blood oranges (when in season) which give a
glorious colour to the jellies.
• Halve the passion fruits and pomegranates. Scoop the passion seeds into a medium bowl.
• Break the pomegranate halves into sections, peel off the membranes and add the seeds to
the bowl.
• Blitz the seeds to a juicy pulp with the hand blender, and then rub through a sieve into a pan.
• Top and tail one of the oranges and slice off the skin and pith, then chop the fruit into small
chunks, removing any pips.
• Divide these between two large wine glasses. Squeeze the juice from the other oranges and
add to the pomegranate and passion fruit juice.
• You should have around 250ml (9fl oz) juice. If not, top up with some water. Add the honey
• Soak the leaf gelatine in cold water to cover until floppy then tip out the water.
• If using powdered gelatine, mix with 2 tablespoons cold water and leave to soak.
• Heat the juice until on the point of boiling, remove and slide in the soaked gelatine, stirring
until dissolved.
• Cool then pour over the chopped fruits and leave to set in the fridge.
• Serve with cream or yogurt spooned on top.
whipping cream
•285 ml chilled
double cream
The hand blender whips double cream perfectly.
Why not try whipping cream, this is a lighter version of double cream, it whips beautifully
without being quite so rich.
• Use a deep bowl with steep sides.
• Blitz, with the hand blender, in the centre of the cream, until thickish.
• Then with a fork, stir in the liquid cream from round the sides, until all is thick.
• This takes about a minute.

•250ml double cream
•1 vanilla pod or
1 tsp vanilla extract

scrape out the sticky seeds with the tip of a sharp knife. Add to the pan, with the split pod
• If using vanilla extract, simply pour in.
• Heat the creamy milk until on the point of boiling, cool for 10 minutes and then remove the pods
• Meanwhile, place the yolks and sugar in a heat-proof bowl and using the Dualit hand blender
whizz until thick and creamy.
• Return the milk to the heat and bring back to the point of boiling.
• Using a wooden spoon, gradually beat the milk into the sugary egg yolks then return to the pan
• Turn the heat to low and stir the custard for a few minutes until it begins to thicken slightly
and coats the back of the spoon like thin cream.
• Don’t let it overheat because it will curdle. Pour through a sieve back into the bowl, cover
and cool 10 – 20 minutes.
• When ready to serve, whizz with the hand blender until you get a nice frothy mixture.
