Tips for using your hand blender
• Blender attachment: Move the hand
blender gently up and down to obtain
best results.
• Start the hand blender only when the
blender shaft is placed into the mixture to
be blended.
• Cut food into small pieces to make
blending and chopping easier.
• Do not immerse the motor body in water
or other liquids.
• To incorporate air into the mixture, hold
the blade just under the surface.
• Whisk attachment: When using the
whisk attachment avoid beating egg
whites for too long as they might dry out
and get less stable.
• Add sugar to beaten egg whites slowly
as the peaks have started to form.
• The maximum operation time for the
whisk attachment is 4 minutes.
32
• Potato masher: When using the potato
masher use a low speed for potatoes as
they are starchy and must not be
overworked. Use a higher speed for
mashing vegetables such as turnips and
sweet potatoes.
• Mash the ingredient while hot.
• Mash vegetables first and add other
ingredients like milk, butter and
seasoning afterwards.
• Chopper attachment: Do not operate
the chopper without food inside the
bowl.
• Do not overload the chopper bowl.
• Cut food into pieces of the same size to
achieve even results.
• Place the chopper bowl on a flat and
sturdy surface.

inserted.

hot.
