Place the bowl onto the motor base and gently turn un l the bowl drops down onto the drive socket. 
Place the dough scraper down into the smaller hole located near the tension knob ②. 
To a ach the dough hook, fit the dough hook into the larger hole located near the tension knob. Loosen the tension knob, allowing the arm ① to swing over the top of the bowl. Pull up on the pin ③ and gently push down into the slot on the side of the dough hook. Tighten the tension knob so that dough hook is locked in the center of the bowl. When kneading dough with the dough hook, you do not want the hook moving inside the bowl. 7 Tips for using the Dough Roller & Dough Scraper 
Dough Mixing: Use the roller and scraper for yeast dough recipes with higher hydra on. Start the machine on the lowest speed with the dough roller res ng against the rim of the bowl. Start with your liquid ingredients and then slowly begin adding your flour. As the dough thickens, adjust the roller away from the side of the bowl and lock in place using the tension knob. The distance of the roller from the rim of the bowl is determined by the amount of dough you are mixing. You will want the roller to apply gentle pressure to the dough as it passes between the roller and the side of the bowl but do not want the roller too close that it pushes the dough up and out of the bowl. NOTE: When “locking” the arm/roller in place, the arm is s ll able to move towards the center of the bowl. If the amount of dough in the bowl begins moving the arm/roller back and forth too harshly, reduce the speed and adjust the roller a li le further away from the side of the bowl. Follow specific recipe for kneading speed and me. 
Creaming Bu er or Margarine: Place ROOM TEMPERATURE bu er or margarine with sugar into the bowl. The roller should be res ng against the rim of the bowl. Start machine on low and slowly increase speed to a high/medium (about 6 o’clock on the speed knob). If ingredients collect in the center of the bowl, gently swing the arm/roller into the center a couple of mes to ensure complete mixing. Run for approx. 5 minutes for best results. (Bu er and margarine will s ck to the roller at the beginning but will work itself off and cream beau fully). 
Cookies: Follow direc ons above for creaming bu er and sugar. Once creamed, reduce speed to low and add remaining cookie ingredients. Again, if ingredients collect in the center of the bowl, gently swing the arm/roller back and forth to ensure proper mixing. If mixing a large batch of cookies, adjust arm/roller slightly away from the rim of the bowl and lock in place by ghtening the tension knob. 8 Tips for using the Dough Roller & Dough Scraper Cont. 
Cakes: With roller res ng against the rim of the bowl, combine ingredients and mix on medium/high speed for about 5 minutes or un l mixture is well mixed. Remember to gently swing the arm/roller into the center of the bowl to ensure all ingredients are incorporated. 
Whipping Cream (2‐4.5 cups): Pour whipping cream into the stainless steel bowl. With the roller res ng against the rim of the bowl, turn machine on star ng on the lowest speed.

However, make sure the roller is far enough away from the rim of the bowl as not to push the dough up and out of the bowl or to force the roller to move too harshly towards the middle of the bowl. If this happens, adjust the roller a li le further away from the rim of the bowl and reduce speed just a bit.

Yeast Dough: Use the dough hook for low hydra on yeast doughs. Add all ingredients into the stainless steel bowl with the hook locked about 2 inches away from the rim of the bowl. Start the machine on the lowest speed. As the dough thickens, adjust arm/hook away from the side of the bowl, posi oning and locking in the middle of the bowl. Follow specific recipe for kneading speed and me. NOTE: For large quan es of dough, first add about half of the flour. Mix well before adding the rest of the flour. 
Mincemeat (1‐5.5 lbs): Lock the dough hook in the center of the bowl and run at medium speed (about 4‐5 o’clock on the speed knob) 
CLEANING: The dough hook is dishwasher safe! To wash by hand, use warm soapy water and a sponge or dish cloth. 11 ① ② ④ ③ ⑤ How to assemble the Double Beater Bowl 
Remove the stainless steel bowl from the motor base. 
Place the double beater bowl sha ① onto the motor base and gently turn un l the sha fits snuggly onto the base. 
Slide the double beater bowl ② down over the sha , gently turn un l the bowl drops down into place. The spout should be facing the mixer arm and the bowl handle should be facing out over the ON/OFF knob. 
Determine which set of beaters you will use. Mul ‐wire balloon whisks ④ or the single wire whips ⑤. 
To change out beaters, place the beater house ③ down on a hard surface with the beaters poin ng up (as shown above). Gently pull on the beaters and they will pop off to reveal a metal prong. Take the new beater and slide down over the prong, making sure to line up the teeth on the beater and the teeth on the large center gear. Gently snap into place. This is the same technique you will use to clean your beater. 
NOTE: The large gear inside the beater housing ③ will come out for cleaning once the beaters are removed. The gear must be in the housing in order for the beaters to snap into place. 12 ① ② Tips for using the Double Beater Bowl 
WARNING: Bu er, margarine and cream cheese should ALWAYS be at room temperature before using the double whisk bowl and beaters. 
Mul ‐wire Balloon Whisks ①: should be used for light mixtures only. Whipping cream, egg whites, light icings (glazes), meringue and marshmallows. NOTE: The beater bowl is heat safe and boiling sugar can be poured into it. 
Single‐wire Whips ②: should be used for so cookie dough, cake ba er, pancake ba er, muffin ba er and brownies. NOTE: A basic chocolate chip cookie dough would be consid‐
ered a “so ” cookie dough. A thick cookie dough calling for oatmeal, nuts, seeds, chocolate chunks and fruit should be mixed in the stainless steel bowl with the dough roller and dough scraper. 
Mixing Instruc ons: Always start mixing on the lowest se ng and slowing increase speed. 
Cookie Dough: Place room temperature bu er or margarine along with sugar into the double beater bowl and place the beater housing with single‐wire beaters in place. Start machine on the lowest speed and slowly increase to medium/high (about 6 o’clock on the speed knob). Once bu er and sugar are creamed, return to lowest speed and add remaining ingredients. Mix just un l dry ingredients are combined and turn machine off. NOTE: Overmixing can cause cookie dough to be tough and the s ffer the dough, the bigger the risk of beaters or double beater gears breaking. 
CLEANING: All double beater bowl parts are dishwasher safe. Beaters should be placed in the top rack of dishwasher and bowl should be placed in the lower rack but not directly over the drying element as it may deform the plas c. To wash by hand, use warm soapy water and wash with a sponge or cloth. 13 FAQ “Which bowl and mixing a achment should I use for….?” Use the below chart to determine which bowl and mixing a achment should be used for a specific recipe.
