Do not use an extension cord. If the power
supply cord is too short, have a qualified
electrician or serviceman install an outlet
near the appliance.
A short power supply cord (or detachable
power supply cord) should be used to
reduce the risk resulting from becoming
entangled in or tripping over a longer cord.
Longer detachable power supply cords or
extension cords are available and may be
used if care is exercised in their use. If a
longer detachable power supply cord or
extension cord is used:
• The marked electrical rating of the cord
set or extension cord should be at least
as great as the electrical rating of the
appliance.
• The cord should be arranged so that it will
not drape over the countertop or tabletop

Food Processing Tips
Using the Multipurpose Blade
To chop fresh fruits or
vegetables:
Peel, core, and/or remove seeds.
Cut food in 1 to 11/2-inch
(2.5-3.75 cm) pieces. Process
food to desired size, using LOW. Scrape sides
of bowl, if necessary.
To puree cooked fruits and vegetables
(except potatoes):
Add 1/4 cup (60 ml) liquid from recipe per
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.
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.
NOTE: Processing nuts and other hard
foods may scratch the surface finish on
the inside of the bowl.
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 (3.75-5 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.

Tips for Great Results
Tips for Great Results
Using a Slicing or
Shredding Disc
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
wide mouth feed
tube vertically or
horizontally, and
pack feed tube
securely to keep
food positioned
properly. Do no
exceed the Max
Fill line. Process
using even
pressure with
wide food pusher.
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 with food
pusher.
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
20
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 with food pusher.
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 with food pusher.
To shred spinach and other leaves:
Stack leaves. Roll up and stand up in feed
tube.Process using even pressure with
food pusher.
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 with food pisher.
Gr
at
e/
Sh
av
e
To cut julienne, or match
stick, strips of vegetables
and fruits using the julienne
disc (on select models):
Cut food to fit feed tube horizontally for
longer pieces or verrtically for smaller pieces.
Position food in feed tube to guide the food.
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 2-3 cups
(475 - 710 ml) of flour.
• 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.
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 thin mixtures, fill work bowl up to
1/2 to 2/3 full. For thicker mixtures, fill
work bowl up to 3/4 full. For liquids, fill
up to the maximum level as described on
page 17. When chopping, the work bowl
should be no more than 1/3 to 1/2 full.
Use the mini-bowl for up to 1 cup (235
ml) of liquid or 1/2 cup (155 g) solids.
• 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.
• When preparing a cake or cookie batter
or quick bread, 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.

Tips for Great Results
Tips and Tricks for Great Results
• 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.
• Use the spatula to remove ingredients
from the work bowl.
• 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.
• 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
• Organize processing tasks to minimize
bowl cleanup. Process dry or firm
ingredients before liquid ingredients.

sure it is set to the correct thickness.
• Make sure ingredients are suitable for
slicing or shredding. See “Tips and Tricks
for Great Results.”
