Introduction
Congratulations on your purchase of a Kitchen Center. Before you try it out, take
a few moments to read this Owners Manual and familiarize yourself with the
easy, convenient functioning of the power base and attachments.
IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS
It is important to understand and observe the safety warnings and cautions in this
section and throughout the manual. If you do not have installation and electrical
experience, we suggest that you employ a professional installer to ensure that
the work is performed in accordance with required safety codes.
The Mini Chopper
The Mini Chopper is made for convenience;
its lightweight polymer design is ideal for clear
visual dicing and chopping. It makes short work
of seasoned breadcrumbs, salsa, onions or pâté.
The separate protective base lets you stand the
mini-chopper on your counter top.
To assemble your mini-chopper:
1. Slot the three pins on the power post into the
matching indentations in the bottom of the jar.
Before using the Kitchen Center, read all the instructions and be sure to follow
the basic safety precautions listed below:
2. Secure the locking cap to the top of the power
post by turning clockwise until it clicks.
•
The Kitchen Center power base and attachments are for household use only
•
Never leave an appliance running un-supervised
3. Drop the blade assembly into place over the
power post.
•
Close supervision is necessary when any appliance is used by or near
children

post into the power base, push
down and turn clockwise until

reduce the risk of severe injury to persons or damage to the mini- chopper. A
scraper may be used but only when the mini-chopper is not running.
Blades are sharp. Handle carefully. To reduce the risk of injury, never place the
cutting blades on the base without first putting the bowl properly in place.

options, visit www.TCCkitchencenter.com
Position the template as shown below and draw a line around it.
The Blender
You can order the blender in glass or stainless
steel. Move smoothly through the five speeds on
the keypad or use the pulse key for a short burst
of power.
To assemble the blender:
1. Place the blades and gasket into the
blender base.
2. Attach the jar by turning clockwise until
snug.
3. Press the two part lid onto the jar.
To attach to the power base, place the blender
into the power base and turn clockwise until fully
seated.
•
At least 1” back from the inside edge of the base cabinet beneath the
countertop
•
Keep at least 4” from any adjacent walls
•
Allow at least 18” clearance between the countertop and any
overhanging cabinets
•
Allow for a minimum depth of 8.0” beneath the bottom of the counter to
accommodate the power base
The blender has an integral stable
base which allows you to stand it
on the counter. It is easily cleaned
in your dish washer. The plastic
base and the gasket should
be placed on the top shelf. Dry
thoroughly before use or storage.
Note
A 15A125V AC outlet must be pre-wired beneath the chosen location prior to
installation.
CAUTION
CAUTION
Keep hands and utensils out of the blender jar when in use to reduce the
risk of severe injury to persons or damage to the blender. A scraper may be
used but only when the blender is not running.

Using your Kitchen Center
Making the cut
The keypad
Drill a pilot hole if necessary then, using a suitable cutting tool, cut along the
inside edge of the template line. Your choice of tool should be dictated by the
material of your counter top.
ON/OFF
The On/Off button powers the base. For safety, activation of an appliance
requires the power button first and then second key be pressed, the power
button alone will not activate the appliance.
Pulse
The Pulse key is active only when pressed and allows you to apply a short burst
of power, for instance when crushing ice or chopping.
Speed Keys
The speed keys incrementally increase the speed of an appliance to suit your
particular recipe or process.
Timer
The timer and digital readout allow you to set a duration of up to three minutes. If
no time is set the motor will shut off automatically after two minutes of continuous
operation.
Power LED
A red LED next to the ON/OFF button on the keypad indicates power is being
supplied to the unit.
8
Make sure that the outside edge of the cutting tool follows the inside edge
of the cut line at all times. It is very important that you do not exceed the
dimensions of the template.

Mounting the Power Unit
Installation above a drawer
1. Remove the top plate from the power base by gently prying it up until
you can squeeze and release the springs from the slots and set the
top plate aside.
The Power base can be installed above a drawer if required. Check that the
drawer is deep enough to clear the power base before cutting. If necessary, make
a cutout in the back of the drawer as shown so that it will clear the power base
when the drawer is opened.
2. Lower the Power Unit into the cutout so that the keypad is towards
the front of the countertop. Center the unit within the cutout. Be very
careful not to crease the rubber sealing gasket as you slide the
power unit into place.
3.
Using a flat blade
screwdriver, turn the
central mounting screw
clockwise. The clamp
bracket beneath the
counter will extend to
secure the unit tight
against the countertop.
Do not over tighten the
screw!
Installation inside a drawer
The power base can also be installed inside a deep drawer so that the keypad
is flush with the top of the drawer as shown. Consult with your installer to make
sure that the drawer has the minimum necessary dimensions and airflow and that
a suitable insert can be placed into the top of the drawer to support the weight of
the power base. The drawer must extend at least 16” inches past the counter top.
Replace the Top Plate and Key Pad
1. Align the top plate with the power base.
2. Squeeze the tension springs on the top plate until they slide smoothly into
the slots at each end of the power base.
3. Gently press the top plate into position .
5. Plug in the Power Base.
CAUTION
Make sure that the power cord has space to move freely without snagging
when the drawer is opened and closed.
