mainly liquid ingredients), and high speed for heavier
applications (e.g. using mainly solid ingredients).
C THE WAND
10 Generally, the wand can do anything a normal blender can do,
but faster, and with less washing up – blend, pulp or purée
ingredients in the pan or bowl you’re going to cook them in.
11 Whatever container you use, make sure it’s on a stable, flat
surface, and support it with your free hand, to prevent it moving.

seconds, then let it cool for 1 minute before re-using it.

c) switch off before lifting it out of the container
d)with liquids, switch on and off with the blade under the surface
C THE WHISK

19 Lower it into the bowl, over the spindle in the centre of the bowl.

21Lower the bowl lid into the top of the bowl, so that the top of the
chopper fits into the drive in the underside of the lid, then turn
the lid clockwise to lock it in place.
22Fit the handle to the top of the bowl lid.
23Plug the handle into the wall socket, hold the bowl steady, and
