the blending attachment
Using the blending attachment
For the most consistent results, food should be processed in small quantities and be cut
into 1 inch cubes before blending.
1. Squeeze and hold the two buttons on the side of the motor together.
2. Line up the two dots (one on each side) of the blending shaft with the buttons.
Release the two buttons. Ensure that the motor unit and the blending attachment are
correctly assembled and securely locked in position.
3. Insert the blending attachment into the food.
4. Press the ON or TURBO (high speed) button.
When pureeing food, it is important to use enough liquid (juice, milk, cream, broth, etc) to
create a smooth mixture.
Adjust the consistency of the mixture by adding more liquids or soft solids.
Don’t use the blending attachment to process meat or cheese.
The blending attachment can be used directly in a pan though we do not recommend
that you do this in a non-stick pan to avoid damaging the pan.
Do not operate the unit continuously for more than 60 seconds without giving it
a rest period of one minute
the chopping attachment
Ensure that the appliance is switched off and unplugged from the supply socket
if it is left unattended and before assembling, disassembling or cleaning.
The chopping blades have very sharp edges. Take care when handling or cleaning
Never place the chopping blade assembly on the motor body by itself.
Do not operate the chopping attachment continuously for more than 30 seconds
(20 seconds on hard food) without giving it a rest period of one minute. The
chopping attachment is not suitable for processing hot food.
Position the chopping bowl on a dry flat surface close to the mains supply socket.

Quick Food Chopper Ideas
Breadcrumbs: For quick and easy breadcrumbs add a couple of pieces of bread,
preferably a couple of days old (but not stale), in your chopping attachment and chop
until fine.
Sweet Biscuit Base: Add digestive biscuits, broken into halves with a little softened
butter. Mix until chopped and combined.
Nuts: For desserts or nut roasts, add the nuts and pulse in quick bursts until crushed.
Garlic, Herbs and Chill: Use your chopping attachment to chop ingredients for
marinades, dressings and sauces.
Crushing ice: Place 10 or so ice cubes into the chopping bowl and add 150ml of
water. Pulse your blender until the cubes are crushed. For best results, let the ice
cubes defrost slightly for a few minutes before processing.

smooth. Keep the blade part of the blending shaft immersed in the soup to avoid
splashing. To avoid damage to the pan, we do not recommend that you blend soup in

seasoning to taste.

Mixed Italian herbs
The zest of one lemon
½ tsp of sugar
The juice of two lemons
Salt and pepper
1. Roughly tear the bread and put it into the chopping bowl. Then add the parmesan

they are all laying flat on the base of the pan and cover with a lid.
3. Cook for about 3 minutes and then place pieces of the butter around the fish. Pour
in the half of the lemon juice and the thyme leaves. Cook for a further 5 minutes,
depending on the thickness of the fish, until it is cooked. You can test this by gently
testing with a fork to see whether the fish is soft and flaky.
4. In a separate pan slowly heat the tomatoes, and stir in the sugar and the rest of the
lemon juice. Season to taste.
5. Spoon a little of the oil and lemon juice in the frying pan over the fish and then
