pointing Er: 01.
The dynamic thermostat, in fact, make an "intelligent" control of the motor temperature,
stopping for a moment, if necessary, to cool the motor down and finish the recipe, before
involving the static thermostat. When the dynamic thermostat is in operation, the word
"PULSE" will be displayed, and you can easily finish the preparation. If, however, an excessive
amount of ingredients or a too thick preparation takes place (which can cause a strain upon
the appliance, with consequent overheating of the motor), the static thermostat comes into
operation, stopping the motor immediately. The display shows "Er: 01".
Wait a few minutes before the appliance cools down, and when the motor has reached an
acceptable temperature, the machine is automatically ready for use again. To do this you have
a forced air cooling fan that also works when the machine is off.

BOWL (12)
The bowl shows three lines to indicate the content level:
1st line = 1 litre
2nd line = 1,5 litres
3rd line= 2 litres
CAUTION: when the contents of the bowl arrives to the 3rd line (2 lt max)
the speed 3 is the maximum speed setting. When, on the contrary, the
content of the bowl doesn’t exceed the 2nd line (1,5 lt). The maximum speed setting is 10.
CAUTION: The maximum capacity must never be exceeded, and it is vital that you take it into
account for some foods such as leavened dough (bread, pizza, etc..) During some
preparations volume increases, furthermore the higher speeds tend to increase the liquid level
because of the centrifugal force.

them!
CLEANING: Wash the blades only with water and detergent, possible using a toothbrush,
trying to keep the bottom part of the blades protected by hand, so that little water may go
through.
Always check that the blades are equipped with the gasket and that the gasket is in
good condition, otherwise it will be possible that liquids come out through the discharge pipe
on the basis of the appliance.
SPATULA (18)
The spatula allows to stir the ingredients contained in the bowl even with the blades in motion
in total security, because its special shape makes it impossible to get in contact with the
blades themselves. It also enables, when necessary, to remove ingredients from the walls of
the bowl in one processing step and the next.

SPECIAL FUNCTIONS
“WAIT TEMPERATURE” FUNCTION
This function, particularly useful for pastry preparations, allows the machine to reach a
temperature that has been pre-determined by the user. Once reached this temperature, the
recipe has been completed (e.g. Custard), but the WAIT TEMPERATURE function enables to
keep mixing the just completed preparation, requiring that a TIME digit below 04:00 hours is
being set into the machine.
When one wants to use the preparation, the machine must be stopped MANUALLY, by
pressing the START/STOP button.
PERSONAL TOUCH:
To facilitate the perfect success of the stored recipes, you can repeat the last sequence of
processing as follows:
• Press the "clock"
• You will hear a beep
• Set a time of your choice
• Press the "Start"
In this way the unit will repeat the last sequence with the same speed and the same
temperature, for the time you set. It is very useful, for example, to give a final touch to food
preparations that are not to your liking, without the need to reset all the digits again.
DELAYED DEPARTURE
There are 3 ways to operate the machine with the late departure.
MANUAL PROGRAMMING
When the machine is turned on, to set the current time, press and hold the button "clock" for
5 seconds till you will hear 3 beeps.
Now the display shows "- -: - -" with the first two lines that are flashing, they indicate the
hour, with the "+" and "-" buttons you could just set the time format 0-24.
Once you have chosen the time, you have to store your data by pressing the "start / stop"
button: after flashing, the second two lines are to indicate the minutes: with the same
procedure you store the minutes.
Then, you must set the time you want the appliance get started, and with the same system
you set the hour .
Once you confirm the information with the START / STOP button, the display will show the
clock icon, which means that we must set (again with the "+" and "-" buttons) the time we
want the machine starts working; it must be confirmed by pressing "start / stop" as well.
Next, the display shows the icon of the thermometer, if you want to set a temperature, always
with the "+" and "-" buttons, and pressing the "start / stop" button to confirm. If you do not
want any temperature, press the "start stop" button and skip this step.
Now the blades' icon appears on the display, and as above, adjust the speed with the "+" and
"-" buttons, and store the data. If you want a speed pulse, press the "pulse" button before
storing the data.
Once you set the last digit of speed, you will hear 4 beeps, the machine is put on standby, the
display shows the current time and the clock icon is flashing.
In this condition the machine waits for the set time to perform the set functions.
Speeds will be set only up to 3, the temperature will be up to 95 ° and the time up to 4 hours.
COMPLETE RECIPE IN MEMORY:
Once selected a recipe that you want to perform with the delayed start, press and hold for 5
seconds the "clock" button and you will then hear 3 beeps.
Now the display shows "- -: - -" with the first two lines that are flashing, they indicate the
hour, with the "" and "-" you could just set the time format 0-24.
Once you have chosen the time, you have to store your data by pressing the button "start /
stop": after flashing the second two lines indicate the minutes to the same procedure time you
store the minutes.
Then, you must set the time when you want the appliance will get started, with the same
system with which he had set the hour earlier.
Once you set the last value, you will hear 4 beeps, the machine is put on standby, the display
shows the current time and the clock icon is flashing.
In this condition the machine waits for the set time to perform the set function.
In this case, the first step of the recipe selection starts, then once finished the machine
stops and waits for the start for the next step.
CAUTION: Always check that the ingredients are introduced in the recommended amount
from the display.
WARNING: Failure to maintain the quantity of food could cause serious damage to things
and people.
CAUTION: Never leave your appliance unattended during the operations.
SINGLE STEP OF A RECIPE
When you pick a recipe of which you want to make a single step with the delayed start, first
you need to do the above steps in the ordinary way, then once the last step is over, and before
you give the start to the next step, press and hold for 5 seconds the "clock" button and you
will hear 3 beeps.
Now the display shows "- -: - -" with the first two lines that are flashing, they indicate the
hour, with the "+" and "-" buttons you could just set the time format 0-24 .
Once you have chosen the time, you have to store your data by pressing the button "start /
stop": after flashing the second two lines indicate the minutes: with the same procedure for
storing the hours, you now store the minutes.
Then, you must set the time at which you want the appliance getting started, with the same
system by which you had set the hour earlier.
In this case, the step being part of the chosen recipe starts. At the end of it, the
machine stops and waits for the start of the next step, or it beeps while the recipe has been
completed.
WARNING: Always check that the ingredients are being introduced in the recommended
amount as per the display indication.
WARNING: Failure to maintain the quantity of food could cause serious damage to things
and people.
CAUTION: Never leave your appliance unattended during the operations.
It is possible to check if set data are correct when the machine is in standby, with the
clock flashing, by pressing the start / stop button: set digits appear in sequence with the
appropriate icon.
When making this operation, if you realize that you have set wrong data, please press the
recipe icon for 5 seconds, then you hear 4 beeps, and all data settings will be deleted with the
exception of the current time.
FOOD REHEATING
For this function, there is the program P00 in the recipe memory.
After pressing the START / STOP button, you'll need to set the temperature (ranging from 25°
to 65 °) with the "+" and "-" buttons, then once the selected temperature is confirmed by
pressing "Start / Stop” button.
You should then confirm the time (0 - 4 hours), then after pressing "start / stop", the robot
will start reheating the food at speed 0 at the set temperature and time.
HOW TO USE THE PRODUCT PROPERLY
• To chop, grate, pulverize and mount, the bowl should be perfectly clean and dry.
• To chop, grate, pulverize and mix, the volume of ingredients should never exceed half of the
bowl.
• When you need to chop, you should remind that speed is proportional to the hardness of the
ingredients, while time is proportional to the quantity of the ingredients by chopping.
• When you are chopping small amounts of food (cloves of garlic, a sprig of parsley, etc..) you
should program speed and introduce the ingredients all of a sudden through the hole in the
lid.
• Never put the blades in the dishwasher. Use a brush or a tiny brush to get even the crevices
at the bottom, without running the risk of cutting.
• When you wash the blades, dry them very well and, if necessary, mount the unit to work for
a few seconds at maximum speed, so that drops of water will step down the inside of the
bowl.
• If you must chop harsh ingredients such as almonds, hazelnuts, chocolate, etc.., set the
required speed and the machine, second after second, will increase its speed automatically .
• After chopping very hard ingredients such as ice, nuts, chocolate, etc.., ALWAYS check that
blades are still screwed perfectly.
• When cooking, never exceed the litre and half of ingredients (including liquids and solids)
otherwise you run the risk that the contents of the bowl could overspill.
• While the unit is in operation, only use the supplied spatula to loosen the ingredients from
the sides of the bowl or mix them.
• To make preparations with boiling milk, always remove the cap from the cover while
cooking. After cooking, do not open the lid immediately, but let the blades turning without any
temperature set, until the milk has gone off the boil before opening.
• Do not place the unit near heat sources (stove, oven, etc..).
• When you want to move the equipment you need to lift it, and never drag it while working:
you may run the risk of damaging the functionality of the machine.
• Before carrying out any recipe, please read all the ingredients to prepare it properly and
have them at hand, and strictly follow the sequence of implementation.
• When a recipe calls for ingredients that are a "cube" or "diced", it is necessary to prepare
them this way, otherwise they do not mix well with other ingredients in the recipe. The cubes
should have the side of about 1 - 1.5 cm, while the diced should have the side smaller than 1
cm.
• In all preparations of fruit (juices, sherbets, jams, etc..) add a peeled lemon "in vivo", ie
without white skins, seeded and cut into small pieces. The lemon will act as an antioxidant
and will enhance the colour and flavour of the preparation.
• For the preparation of ice creams and sorbets, and to assemble the cream, it is necessary
that the machine is cold and that the bowl is first cooled for a couple of hours in the
refrigerator. If the machine is off, but it was not thought to cool the bowl, you can do it by
grinding ice, then take it out from the bowl and proceed with the preparation.
• In preparations that require long cooking times you may need to add extra liquids. Similarly,
for preparations that require the use for ex. of tomato sauce, please remind that not any
soups are the same, but they can vary in consistency and, therefore, in the amount of liquid
they contain.
• For the preparation of dishes with vegetables, if you are not satisfied with the amount of
cooking achieved by the recipe, you can use the "personal touch" and prolong the cooking for
the desired time. If you use canned beans instead of dry ones, consider that cooking times
should be reduced considerably.
• For the preparation of meat dishes, one should consider the importance of the type of meat
and the cut used. Cooking times of the recipes refer exclusively to the type and cut of meat
indicated in the recipes themselves. If for any reason, you decide to use a different type of
meat, remember that it will change its cooking times. Obviously, if you must lengthen the
cooking time, you must increase the amount of liquid in the bowl while cooking.
•When you program the delayed start of a recipe with rice and liquids (broth, water, milk,
etc.), you must keep in mind that over time the rice absorbs the liquid and therefore the
cooking time should be reduced.
• After cooking, wait a moment before opening the lid and take care of possible "puffs" of
steam. You could burn yourself.
• If the unit is used improperly, for ex. by putting bigger amounts of an ingredient than those
provided by the recipe, or more than the appliance can accept, the motor tends to overheat
and thus, in order to protect it, the intervention of a thermal protection will block the motor
until it will cool down. Once cold, the unit will work again.
• If, after preparing a "hot" recipe, you want to switch to a "cold" recipe, in order to speed up
the cooling times it is recommended to let the appliance work at speed 10 for about 2
minutes.
• Do not lift or move the unit by grasping the handle.
IN THE CASE....
The device does not turn on:
- Check that the plug is inserted into the socket.
- Check that the lid is closed completely, and there is no blinking icon on the display.
The unit will stop automatically:
- Verify that you do not have introduced excessive amounts compared to what the
machine can accept and has not, thus leading to overheating as described above. (see section
"thermostat"). In this case will be displayed "Er: 01". Will be enough to put the machine in
stand-by and wait until the engine cools down, because the apparatus is again ready for use.
The unit does not start and appears on the display "Er: 02":
- It means that the unit has been exposed to an external temperature too low (for ex. in case
of transport, during the winter). Will be sufficient to place the device in a normally heated and
wait a few minutes.
The unit does not start (or stop responding during processing) and appears on the
display "Er: 03". Means that:
1) were introduced into the glass excessive amounts of ingredients. Will be enough to empty a
little the glass.
2) It was set a speed inappropriate to the type of processing. Will be sufficient to correct the
speed by pressing the button first. ... And follow the procedures described in paragraph "2 Correction of the data set.
The unit heats abnormally (i.e. too much or too little):
- Verify that the heating element is not dirty (in this case, see "Cleaning the Unit")
• The display lights up the icon of the "key": the unit should be taken into a service centre.
