How to assemble the bowl, roller and scraper
Important! Unplug the appliance before you attach or remove accessories. There is a risk of getting fingers caught between the bowl,
the arm attachment, and the upper stand. Never put your hands or other objects into the bowl when the appliance is beeing used.
Roller
To attach the roller, first loosen the positioning knob (A) in the arm attachment so the arm can be moved towards the centre of the bowl. Then pull
up the pin (B) on the arm and attach the roller by pushing the peg down.
The arm can then be locked into the required position. When kneading
dough, lock the arm and roller 2 – 4 cm from the rim of the bowl.
The roller can then move towards the centre of the bowl and then back
again to the set position.
How to use the bowl, roller and scraper
Never immerse the appliance in water. This could short-circuit the appliance, which is extremely dangerous. There is a risk of
catching your fingers between the bowl and the arm attachment. Never put your hands or other objects in the bowl when the
appliance is in operation
Dough mixing
Use the roller and scraper for yeast doughs, up to 1.5 litres (6 cups) of
dough fluid and up to 1 litre (4 1/2 cup) of liquid for heavy doughs.
Start the machine at low speed. Lock the roller 2 – 4 cm (1/2 - 2 inches)
from the rim of the bowl as determined by how much flour you will use.
Increase to high speed. Knead the dough for 5 minutes, unless otherwise
stated in the recipe.
Loosen the arm, remove the roller and scraper, and put on the lock while
waiting for the dough to rise.
Creaming Butter or Margarine
Use roller and scraper
Place the room temperature butter or margarine with sugar into the
bowl. The roller should be at rim of the bowl with the positioning knob
set loose.
Turn the machine to the highest speed, move the roller into the center of
the bowl a couple of times to assure complete mixing of all ingredients and
run for approx. 5 min. for best results. (Butter and margarine will stick to
the roller at the beginning but will work itself off and cream beautifully).
Biscuits an cookies
Use roller and scraper
Keep the roller at the rim of the bowl with the positioning knob set
loose.
Place the room temperature butter or margarine and sugar into the bowl
and mix on high speed for approx. 2 min. Add eggs, move the roller into
the center of the bowl a couple of times to assure complete mixing of
all ingredients.
Turn the speed on low/medium and add the flour, baking powder and
remaining ingredients. Move the roller a couple of times to the center.
Slowly increase the speed to high until well blended. If using more than 5
coups of flour, move the roller from the rim approx. 1/4 inch when adding
the flour and tighten positioning knob. If using more than 10 cups of flour
move the roller approx. 1/2 inch away from the bowl.
Cakes 1 – 4 batches
Use roller and scraper
Mix at high speed for around 5 minutes. Move the roller into the centre
of the bowl a few times.
Stop the machine as soon as the mixture is well mixed.
Whipping cream 5 – 10 dl (2 - 4 1/2 cup)

Whisk with the roller and knife on medium to high speed, until the cream
thickens.
Meringue Mix 4 – 12 egg whites with sugar.
Use roller and scraper
Whisk egg whites until stiff on high speed until stiff.
Tips
If the Assistent is often used for whisking, we recommend the special
double whisk attachment.
Mincemeat, sausagemeat, patés 0.5 – 3 kg (1 - 6 1/2 lb.)
Use roller and scraper
Mix at medium speed. If you are mixing large quantities at the same
time, it may be better to lock the roller 1 – 2 cm (1/2 - 1 inch) away from
the rim of the bowl.
Mashed potatoes 0.5 – 1.5 kg (1 - 3 1/2 lb.)
Use roller and scraper
Mash the potatoes at medium to high speed, while at the same time
pressing the roller against the rim of the bowl.
Lower the speed before adding further ingredients.
Freshly crushed berries 0.5 – 2 litres (2 - 8 1/2 cup)
Only use the roller.
Run at low speed and press the roller gently against the rim of the bowl
until all the berries are crushed.
Stop the machine, remove the roller and attach the scraper. Then run
the machine at high speed.
Cleaning
Use the spatula to scrape out the bowl. When cleaning the roller, use
the side of the spatula to scrape the roller clean.
The bowl, roller, knife and spatula can be washed in a dishwasher.
Place the plastic utensils in the upper dishwasher rack, to prevent the
dishwasher’s drying function from deforming the plastic.

the rim of the bowl if you wish.
The knife is placed in the dough hook attachment, as illustrated.
4
Use
Use the dough hook to knead yeast dough (1 –1.5 litres of liquid / 4 - 6
cup).
Start the machine at low speed. Do not lock the dough hook. When you
make large quantities of dough, first add about 2 kg (4 1/2 lbs.) of flour.
Mix well before adding the rest of the flour.
Knead the dough for 6 – 8 minutes.
Mincemeat 0.5 – 2.5 kg (1 - 5 1/2 lbs.)
Lock the dough hook in the centre of the bowl and run at medium
speed.
Cleaning
The dough hook can be washed in a dishwasher.
Double beater
Important! Unplug the appliance before you attach or remove accessories. Never put your hands or other objects into the bowl
when the appliance is in operation
Assembly
Fit the pole firmly into place on the drive socket. Place the bowl over
the pole and press down and turn the bowl so that it is resting on the
appliance.
Attach the double beater to the pole.
Use
Use the beater to whip cream 1 – 8 dl (1/2 - 3 1/2 cup), egg whites
2 – 20, pancake mix 0.5 – 2.5 litres (2 - 10 1/2 cup), sponge cake mix
5
1 – 3 batches.
Use medium to high speed.
Cleaning
Wash the double beater by hand.
The bowl can be washed in a dishwasher. Place it in the lower dishwasher rack but not directly over the drying element, as this may deform
the plastic.
Citrus fruit press
Important! Unplug the appliance before you attach or remove accessories.
Assembly
Attach the citrus fruit press as illustrated.
Use
Use the citrus press for oranges, grapefruits and lemons. Cut the fruit
in half. Hold the fruit against the rotating press and run the machine at
medium to high speed.
6
Cleaning
It is usually sufficient to rinse the press under warm water. The citrus
press can be washed in a dishwasher.
Place it in the upper dishwasher rack to prevent it from becoming
deformed by the hot drying element.
Liquidiser/blender
CAUTION!
Keep hands, hair, loose clothing, jewelry, spatulas or other utensils out of the container while in operation. Use scraper only
with unit turned off. Always operate with cover in place. Do not blend hot liquids. Unplug the appliance before you attach or
remove accessories. The liquidiser/blender should never be started without the lid on. Always keep your hand on the lid while
the appliance is running. Never leave children alone with a liquidiser/blender when it is in operation. Unplug the appliance if you
leave it unattended.
Assembly
Put the Assistent on its side and remove the protective cap from the
drive socket. Place the cap over the normal drive socket. Attach the
liquidiser/blender firmly to the socket by turning it clockwise. Put the lid
(A) on the liquidiser/blender.
Use
Put the food to be chopped, mixed or blended into the liquidiser/blender.
Put the lid on. Run the machine at the highest speed until everything
is thoroughly mixed/finely chopped. This usually takes approx. 30 – 40
seconds.
Do not run the liquidiser/blender for more than 3 minutes at a time when
chopping dry food and more than 9 minutes at a time when blending
liquids.
The liquidiser/blender has an extra lid which fits inside the blender jug.
(Note! Only in Europe!)
Use this lid when you need to finely chop small quantities of herbs and
spices, etc.
The lid prevents the spices from sticking to the sides of the liquidiser/
blender, allowing the fine chopping process to work more efficiently.
If you need to add anything or thin the mixture while the machine is
running, remove the small lid to add the remaining ingredients.
For best results, the jug should not be filled more than 3/4 full with liquid
ingredients and about 1/2 full with dry ingredients.
Tips
For best results when finely chopping whole spices, add small amounts
at a time through the hole in the lid. Thick sauces and purées become
smoother if you repeatedly turn the machine on and off while liquidising.
The liquidiser/blender is good for chopping almonds, nuts and onions,
as well as for making baby food.
Cleaning
The easiest way to clean the liquidiser/blender jug is to fill it with warm
water and a drop of washing-up liquid. Run the machine for a few
seconds, then rinse the jug with warm water.
Do not wash the jug in a dishwasher, as this may cause the bearings
and seal to dry out.
Mincer
7
CAUTION!
Unplug the appliance before you attach or remove accessories. Never place your hands or other objects inside the mincer, as
the mincer cylinder is very sharp. Always use the food plunger. Never leave children alone with the mincer when it is being used.
Unplug the appliance if you leave it unattended.
8
Vegetables should be par-boiled before mincing. Run the machine at
high speed. Always use the food plunger to push the food in, do not use
forks or spoons. Let the machine determine the working speed. Put in
just enough food at a time.
When mincing meat, tendons can get stuck round the knife and spoil the
results. Remove the lock ring and hole disc, and then clean the knife.
Tips
When mincing meat or fish, mince onions at the same time if they are
included in the recipe.
To empty the meat, etc. out of the mincer, put one or two bread crusts
or crispbread through the mincer.
Sausage making
Mount the sausage pipe, as illustrated. Put the sausage skin onto the
pipe. Fill the mincer with sausage meat. Run the machine at low speed.
Let out the skin as the meat fills it. If air bubbles appear in the sausage,
press them out carefully via the grooves in the sausage pipe.
IMPORTANT!
Cleaning
Wash the mincer housing, cylinder, knife, hole disc and lock ring by
hand. (They would become discoloured and dry out in a dishwasher.)
Allow to dry completely before re-assembling them.
Remember to oil the hole disc and knife with cooking oil. The plastic items
can be washed in a dishwasher. Place them in the upper dishwasher rack
to prevent them from becoming deformed by the hot drying element.
Berry press / Strainer Mincer accessory
CAUTION!
Unplug the appliance before you attach or remove accessories. Never put your hands or any other object in, as the forcing cylinder
is very sharp. Always use the food plunger. Never leave children alone with a mincer when it is being used. Unplug the appliance
if you leave it unattended.
The following parts are included:
1. Forcing cylinder

Installation of the strainer
For best straining results, the adjusting screw should be in the in-
9
nermost position. Loosen the screw and move it outwards to alter the
degree of straining. Tighten the screw again afterwards.
Use
Use the strainer to strain fruit and berries or to make purées and
mousses. Cut the fruit into pieces. Tomatoes, oranges, gooseberries, cored plums and cherries can be strained raw. Apples must be
par-boiled first.
Run the machine at high speed.
Tips
Apples can be par-boiled in the microwave
IMPORTANT!
Cleaning
The mincer housing, cylinder and all parts of the strainer should be
washed by hand and left to dry.
Only the feeder tray and plunger can be washed in a dishwasher.
Place them in the upper dishwasher rack to prevent them from becoming deformed by the hot drying element.

Devil’s Food Cake with Caramel Buttercream Frosting
1 3/4 cups cake flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
8 Tbs. (1 stick) unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup lightly packed light brown sugar
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
2 eggs
1 cup hot water
1/2 cup Dutch processed cocoa powder
1/2 cup buttermilk, at room temperature
1 recipe caramel buttercream frosting (recipe follows)
Beat in the vanilla. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each
addition.
Occasionally move the roller to the center of the bowl to ensure even
mixing. You may need to stop the mixer occasionally to scrape the sides
of the bowl with a spatula. In another bowl, whisk together the hot water,
cocoa powder and buttermilk. Add the dry and liquid ingredients to the
butter mixture alternately in 3 additions, turning the mixer on and off
on low speed.
Occasionally scrape down the sides of the bowl. Then beat the batter
until well combined and smooth, about 30 seconds. Divide the batter
between the prepared pans, spreading the batter so the sides are
slightly higher than the center.
Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cakes comes out
clean, about 45 minutes. Cool the pans on wire racks for 10 minutes,
then remove the cakes from the pans and cool completely on the racks
before frosting, at least 1 hour.
Position a rack in the center of an oven and preheat to 350°F. Grease
two 8 x 2-inch round cake pans and line the bottom of each with a round
of parchment paper cut to fit neatly in the bottom of the pans. Have an
8-inch cardboard round ready.
On a sheet of waxed paper, sift together the flour, baking soda and
salt and sift again. Fit the mixer with the metal bowl, scraper and roller.
Loosen the positioning knob so that the roller rests flush against the
rim of the bowl.
In the metal bowl beat the butter on medium-high speed until light
and creamy, about 2 minutes. Add the granulated sugar and brown
sugar and continue beating until light and fluffy, 3 to 4 minutes more.
To assemble, place one of the cakes on the cardboard round and
spread about 1/2 cup frosting over the top. Set the other cake on top
and place the whole cake on a decorating turntable or lazy Susan.
With a cake spatula and using about half of the remaining frosting,
spread a thin coat over the top and around the sides of the cake.
Refrigerate until the frosting is firm, about 3 hours. With the remaining
frosting, spread a final coat over the top and around the sides. When
applying the final coat, avoid touching the first one with the spatula. This
will ensure the top coat is free of crumbs.
Decorate the cake as desired. Serves 12.
Caramel Buttercream Frosting
8 Tbs. (1 stick) unsalted butter, at room temperature
1-lb. box confectioners’ sugar
1/4 cup heavy cream
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 cup prepared caramel sauce
Fit the mixer with the plastic bowl and the double whisk attachment, in
the plastic beat the butter on medium speed until creamy, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the confectioners’ sugar, about 1/4 cup at a time, alternating
with 1 to 2 Tbs. cream and beat until blended. Add the vanilla, salt and
caramel sauce and continue beating until a spreading consistency is
reached, 1 to 2 minutes more.
Challah
Think of challah as Eastern European brioche. It is golden egg-andbutter-rich bread with a texture only slightly tighter than that of brioche.
Braided challah is the traditional symbol of the Jewish Sabbath, the
bread over which grace is said. It is just a little sweet, just a little soft and
just this side of heavenly.
2 Tbs. unsalted butter, melted
1 1/2 Tbs. active dry yeast
1/2 cup tepid water (80 to 90°F)
1/3 cup sugar
8 Tbs. (1 stick) unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 cup milk
1 Tbs. mild honey
2 1/2 tsp. salt
4 eggs
6 1/2 cups high-gluten bread flour or unbleached all-purpose flour

has dissolved and is creamy, about 5 minutes.
Cut the butter into small pieces and toss into a small saucepan with the
milk; heat until the milk is very warm to the touch and the butter has
melted. Fit the mixer with the metal bowl, scraper and roller. Tighten the
positioning knob so the roller sits 1 inch from the rim of the bowl. Pour
the butter mixture into the metal bowl and add the remaining sugar,
honey and the salt. If necessary, let the mixture cool so it is no warmer
than 110°F.
Add the creamy yeast and the eggs to the mixture and stir with a
wooden spoon to mix. Add about 5 cups of the flour and knead on low
speed for 3 minutes or until the dough starts to come together. Continue
kneading on medium-low speed, adding additional flour as needed, 1/2
cup at a time, to make a soft dough that clings to the sides of the bowl.
Knead the dough on medium-low until smooth, soft and elastic, 8 to 10
minutes more.
First and Second Rises
On a lightly floured surface, shape the dough into a ball and transfer it to
the buttered mixing bowl. Brush the top of the dough with a little melted
butter, cover the bowl with buttered plastic wrap and top with a kitchen
towel. Let the dough rise at room temperature until doubled in bulk, 1
to 1 1/2 hours. When the dough is fully risen, deflate it, cover as before
and let it rise until doubled in bulk, 45 to 60 minutes.
Shaping and Final Rise
Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. Deflate the dough and
turn it out onto a lightly floured work surface. Cut the dough in half and
cover 1 piece with buttered plastic wrap while you work with the other.
Divide the dough into 3 equal pieces. Roll each piece into a rope about
16 inches long; it should be thick in the center and tapered at the ends.
Align the ropes vertically, side by side, and start braiding from the
center down. When you have reached the end, turn the loaf around so
that the braided half is on top and braid the lower half. Pinch the ends
to seal and tuck the ends under the loaf. Transfer the loaf to a prepared
baking sheet and gently plump it to get it back into shape; cover with a
towel. Braid the second loaf, put it on the other prepared baking sheet
and cover. Let the loaves rise at room temperature until soft puffy, and
almost doubled, about 40 minutes.
The Glaze and Topping
1 egg
1 egg yolk
1 Tbs. cold water or heavy cream
Sesame, poppy and/or caraway seeds (optional)
Coarse salt
Position the racks to divide the oven into thirds and preheat to 375°F.
In a small bowl, whisk the egg, yolk and water together until broken up,
then push the glaze through a sieve. Brush the tops and sides of the
challahs with glaze; let the glaze set for 5 minutes and brush again. Reserve the remaining glaze for brushing the loaves during baking. Dust
the tops of the loaves with the seeds, if using, and with the coarse salt.
Baking the Bread
Bake the bread for 20 minutes. Rotate the pans 180 degrees, from front
to back and from top to bottom. The loaves will expand and expose
some of the inner dough. Brush the newly exposed dough with the
reserved glaze and bake until the loaves are golden and sound hollow
when tapped on the bottom, 15 to 20 minutes more. If they start to
brown too quickly, cover them with a piece of foil, shiny side up. Let the
bread cool to room temperature before slicing, about 2 hours.
Makes 2 loaves.
Storing
Once cut, challah should be stored in a plastic bag at room temperature; it will keep for 2 days and then makes excellent French toast. For
longer storage, wrap the bread airtight and freeze for up to 1 month.
Thaw, still wrapped, at room temperature.

mixing. You may need to stop the mixer occasionally to scrape the sides
of the bowl with a spatula. Transfer the bowl to the refrigerator and
refrigerate until the dough is firm, at least 1 hour.
Place the confectioners’ sugar in a bowl. Scoop a heaping tablespoon
of dough from the bowl and with your palms, shape the dough into a
ball and drop into the confectioners’ sugar. Roll the ball in the sugar to
coat and transfer to a prepared cookie sheet. Repeat with the remaining
dough, spacing the cookies 2 inches apart. Bake until the sugar topping
is cracked, the cookies are slightly puffed and the sides are just firm to
the touch, 10 to 12 minutes. Transfer the cookies to a wire rack to cool.

On a sheet of waxed paper, sift together the flour, baking powder and
salt and sift again.
Fit the mixer with the metal bowl, scraper and roller. Loosen the
positioning knob so the roller rests flush against the rim of the bowl.
In the metal bowl, beat the butter on medium speed until creamy, 2 to
3 minu-tes. Gradually add the sugar and beat until light and fluffy, 2
to 3 minutes. Occasionally move the roller to the center of the bowl to
ensure even mixing. You may need to stop the mixer occasionally to
scrape the sides of the bowl with a spatula. Beat in the egg, vanilla and
cream until well blended. Fold in the dry ingredients in 2 additions and
beat until just incorporated and no lumps of flour remain.
Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and gather into a ball.
Divide dough in half, place each portion between 2 sheets of waxed
paper and press into a flat disk. Refrigerate until firm, at least 1 hour
or overnight.
Position a rack in the center of an oven and preheat to 350°F. (Note: If
you are using dark cookie sheets, preheat the oven to 325°F.)
On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough to 1/4 -inch thickness,
flouring as necessary. Using a 2-inch round cookie cutter, cut the dough
into circles and transfer to nonstick cookie sheets, spacing the cookies
1 inch apart. Gather the scraps into a flat disk and refrigerate until firm.
Bake the cookies until the edges are lightly golden, 8 to 10 minutes.
Repeat with the remaining dough.
Makes 25 cookies.

2 Tbs. plus 2 cups sugar
3/4 cup chopped walnuts
1 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
12 Tbs. (1 1/2 sticks) unsalted butter, at room temperature
3 eggs, lightly beaten
1 1/4 cups sour cream
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
3 Tbs. nonfat milk
1 1/2 cups confectioners’ sugar
Wheat Bread
1 package about ITbs. active dry yeast
2 1/4 cups warm water
2 1/2 cups unbleached white bread flour
2 1/4 cups whole wheat flour
1 1/2 cups wheat bran
1/4 cup wheat gluten
2 1/2 tsp. salt
In a bowl, sprinkle the yeast over the water and let stand until bubbly,
about 5 minutes.
Fit the mixer with the metal bowl, scraper and roller. Loosen the positioning knob so the roller rests flush against the rim of the bowl. In the
metal bowl, combine the white and whole wheat flours, the wheat bran,
gluten and salt and blend on low speed to mix ingredients, 15 to 20
seconds. Tighten the positioning knob so the roller sits 1/2 inch from the
rim of the bowl. Add the yeast and knead on medium-low speed until
the dough is soft, smooth and elastic, 8 to 10 minutes. If the ingredients
get caught on the side of the bowl, stop the mixer, move the roller and
push them through with a rubber spatula.
Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and shape dough into

a ball. Transfer to a lightly oiled large mixing bowl. Cover tightly with
plastic wrap and let rise in a warm place until doubled in bulk, about 1
hour.
Position a large rectangular baking stone in the center of an oven and
preheat to 425°F.
Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface, divide in half and
press out any air pockets. Stretch each piece into an 8-by-12-inch rectangle. With the longer edge facing you, roll the dough away, folding the
longer edges downward and under to form a long, narrow loaf, about 2
inches round and 12 inches long. Pinch the seam underneath closed to
seal. Transfer the loaves to a floured baking sheet, cover with a floured
kitchen towel and let rise until doubled in bulk, 30 to 40 minutes. Using
a serrated knife, make 3 diagonal slits on top of each loaf and let rest
for a few minutes.
Using a baker’s peel or rimless cookie sheet, transfer the loaves to the
hot baking stone and bake until the loaves are evenly browned and
sound hollow when tapped, 45 to 50 minutes.
Makes 2 loaves.
