TIPS FOR GREAT RESULTS
T
Using the Multipurpose Blade
26
To chop fresh fruits
or vegetables:
Peel, core, and/or remove
seeds. Cut food in 1 to
11/2-inch (2.5-4 cm) pieces. Process food
to desired size, using short pulses, 1 to
2 seconds each time. Scrape sides of bowl,
if necessary.
To puree cooked fruits and vegetables
(except potatoes):
Add 1/4 cup (60 ml) liquid from recipe per
1 cup (235 ml) of food. Process food, using
short pulses, until finely chopped. Then
process continuously until reaching desired
texture. Scrape sides of bowl, if necessary.
To prepare mashed potatoes:
Shred hot cooked potatoes using the
shredding disc. Exchange shredding disc
for multipurpose blade. Add softened butter,
milk, and seasonings. Pulse 3 to 4 times,
2 to 3 seconds each time, until smooth and
milk is absorbed. Do not over process.
To chop dried (or sticky) fruits:
The food should be cold. Add 1/4 cup
(60 ml) flour from recipe per 1/2 cup
(120 ml) dried fruit. Process fruit, using
short pulses, until reaching desired texture.
W10545030B_ENv3.indd 26
To finely chop citrus peel:
With sharp knife, peel colored portion
(without white membrane) from citrus.
Cut peel in small strips. Process until
finely chopped.
To mince garlic or to chop fresh herbs
or small quantities of vegetables:
With processor running, add food through
the feed tube. Process until chopped. For
best results, make sure work bowl and
herbs are very dry before chopping.
To chop nuts or make nut butters:
Process up to 3 cups (710 ml) of nuts to
desired texture, using short pulses, 1 to 2
seconds each time. For a coarser texture,
process smaller batches, pulsing 1 or 2
times, 1 to 2 seconds each time. Pulse more
often for finer texture. For nut butters,
process continuously until smooth. Store in
refrigerator.
To chop cooked or raw meat,
poultry or seafood:
The food should be very cold. Cut in
1-inch (2.5 cm) pieces. Process up to
1 pound (455 g) at a time to desired size,
using short pulses, 1 to 2 seconds each time.
Scrape sides of bowl, if necessary.
To make bread, cookie,
or cracker crumbs:
Break food into 11/2 to 2-inch (3.5-5 cm)
pieces. Process until fine. For larger pieces,
pulse 2 to 3 times, 1 to 2 seconds each time.
Then process until fine.
To melt chocolate in a recipe:
Combine chocolate and sugar from recipe
in work bowl. Process until finely chopped.
Heat liquid from recipe. With processor
running, pour hot liquid through the feed
tube. Process until smooth.
To grate hard cheeses,
such as Parmesan and Romano:
Never attempt to process cheese that
cannot be pierced with the tip of a sharp
knife. You can use the multi-purpose blade
to grate hard cheeses. Cut cheese in 1 inch
(2.5 cm) pieces. Place in work bowl. Process,
using short pulses, until coarsely chopped.
Process continuously until finely grated. Pieces
of cheese can also be added through the feed
tube while the processor is running.
NOTE: Processing nuts and other hard
foods may scratch the surface finish on
the inside of the bowl.
1/25/13 10:53 AM
TIPS FOR GREAT RESULTS
To slice or shred fruits or
vegetables that are long
and relatively small in
diameter, such as celery,
carrots, and bananas:
Cut food to fit feed tube vertically or
horizontally, and pack feed tube securely
to keep food positioned properly. Process
using even pressure.
Or use the small feed tube in the two-piece
food pusher. Position food vertically in
the tube and use the small food pusher
to process food.
To slice or shred fruits and vegetables
that are round, such as onions, apples,
and green peppers:
Peel, core, and remove seeds. Cut in halves
or quarters to fit feed tube. Position in feed
tube. Process using even pressure.
To slice or shred fruits and vegetables
that are small, such as strawberries,
mushrooms, and radishes:
Position food vertically or horizontally in
layers within the feed tube. Fill feed tube
in order to keep food positioned properly.
Process, using even pressure. Or use the
small feed tube in the two-piece food pusher.
Position food vertically in the tube and use
the small food pusher to process food.
To slice uncooked meat or poultry,
such as stir-fry meats:
Cut or roll food to fit feed tube. Wrap
and freeze food until hard to the touch,
30 minutes to 2 hours, depending on
thickness of food. Check to be sure you
can still pierce food with the tip of a sharp
knife. If not, allow to thaw slightly. Process,
using even pressure.
To slice cooked meat or poultry,
including salami, pepperoni, etc.:
Food should be very cold. Cut in pieces to
fit feed tube. Process food using firm, even
pressure.
To shred spinach and other leaves:
Stack leaves. Roll up and stand up in feed
tube. Process using even pressure.
English
Using a Slicing or Shredding Disc
To shred firm and soft cheeses:
Firm cheese should be very
cold. For best results with soft
cheeses, such as mozzarella,
freeze 10 to 15 minutes before
processing. Cut to fit feed tube.
Process using even pressure.
Using the Dough Blade
The dough blade is specially
designed for mixing and
kneading yeast dough quickly
and thoroughly.
For the best results, do not
knead recipes which use more than 4 cups
(500 g) of flour.

TR
Helpful Hints
• To avoid damage to the blade or motor,
do not process food that is so hard or
firmly frozen that it cannot be pierced
with the tip of a sharp knife. If a piece
of hard food, such as a carrot, becomes
wedged or stuck on the blade, stop the
processor and remove the blade. Gently
remove food from the blade.
• Do not overfill work bowl or mini-bowl.
For liquids, follow the maximum fill
levels indicated on the work bowl. When
chopping, the work bowl should be no
more than 1/3 to 1/2 full. Use the
mini-bowl for up to 4 cups (1 L)
of liquid or 4 cups (500 g) dry ingredients.
• Position slicing discs so the cutting surface
is just to the right of the feed tube. This
allows the blade a full rotation before
contacting the food.
• To capitalize on the speed of the
processor, drop ingredients to be chopped
through the feed tube while the processor
is running.
• Different foods require varying degrees
of pressure for best shredding and slicing
results. In general, use light pressure
for soft, delicate foods (strawberries,
tomatoes, etc.), moderate pressure for
medium foods (zucchini, potatoes, etc.),
and firmer pressure for harder foods
(carrots, apples, hard cheeses, partially
frozen meats, etc.).
• ­­­Soft and medium-hard cheese may spread
out or roll up on the shredding disc. To
avoid this, shred only well-chilled cheese.
• Sometimes slender foods, such as
carrots or celery, fall over in the feed
tube, resulting in an uneven slice. To
minimize this, cut food in several pieces
and pack the feed tube with the food.
For processing small or slender items,
the small feed tube in the two piece food
pusher will prove especially convenient.
• When preparing a cake or cookie batter,
use the multipurpose blade to cream
fat and sugar first. Add dry ingredients
last. Place nuts and fruit on top of flour
mixture to prevent overchopping. Process
nuts and fruits, using short pulses, until
blended with other ingredients. Do
not overprocess.
• When shredded or sliced food piles
up on one side of the bowl, stop the
processor and redistribute the food
using a spatula.
• When food quantity reaches the bottom
of a slicing or shredding disc, remove
the food.
• A few larger pieces of food may
remain on top of the disc after slicing
or shredding. If desired, cut these by
hand and add to mixture.
• Organize processing tasks to minimize
bowl cleanup. Process dry or firm
ingredients before liquid ingredients.
• To clean ingredients from the
multipurpose blade easily, just empty
the work bowl, replace the lid, and pulse
1 to 2 seconds to spin the blade clean.
• After removing the work bowl cover,
place it upside down on the counter.
This will help keep the counter clean.
• Use the spatula to remove ingredients
from the work bowl.
• Your Food Processor is not designed
to perform the following functions:
-- Grind coffee beans, grains, or
hard spices
-- Grind bones or other inedible
parts of food
-- Liquefy raw fruits or vegetables
-- Slice hard-cooked eggs or
unchilled meats.
• If any plastic parts should discolor due to
the types of food processed, clean them
with lemon juice.

TROUBLESHOOTING
Food Processor doesn’t run:
• Make sure that the bowl and lid are properly
aligned and locked in place and the large
food pusher is inserted in the feed tube.
• When using the large feed tube opening,
make sure that food is not above the
Max. Fill line on the feed tube.
• Check to make sure the Food Processor
is plugged in.
• Is the fuse in the circuit to the Food
Processor in working order? If you have
a circuit breaker box, be sure the circuit
is closed.
• Unplug the Food Processor, then plug it
back into the outlet.
• If the Food Processor is not at room
temperature, wait until it reaches room
temperature and retry.
• If the speed lever does not move, make sure
the dial is in the Off position.
• For easy lid rotation, it is possible to
remove the seal, or just apply vegetable
oil to the seal.
Food Processor not shredding or
slicing properly:
• Make sure the raised-blade side of the
disc is positioned face up on the adapter.
• If using the adjustable slicing blade, make
sure it is set to the correct thickness.
• Make sure ingredients are suitable for
slicing or shredding.
If the work bowl cover won’t close:
• Make sure the disc is installed correctly,
with the raised nub on top, and is
positioned properly on the drive adapter.
• Try to close again, with the large food
pusher removed.
If the problem is not due to one of the above
items, see the “Warranty and Service” section.
Do not return the Food Processor to the
retailer. Retailers do not provide service.
