Read the instructions and keep them safe. If you pass the hand blender on, pass on the
instructions too.
Remove all packaging, but keep it till you know the hand blender works.
important safeguards
Follow basic safety precautions, including:
1 This hand blender must only be used by a responsible adult . Use and store the hand
blender out of reach of children.
2 Don’t put the handle in liquid, don’t use it in a bathroom, near water, or
outdoors.
3 The wand blade is sharp and it rotates at high speed.
4 So, to avoid serious injury:
a) don’t switch on till the blade is inside the food container
b) switch off before lifting the blade from the food container
c) don’t touch the blade – even when cleaning
d) don’t plug in till just before use
e) unplug immediately after use
f) unplug before cleaning
g) don’t leave the hand blender unattended while plugged in
h) use and store the hand blender out of reach of children.
5 The ice blade and jug blade are also sharp – don’t handle the metal parts of these
blades. There’s plenty of plastic – handle that instead.
6 Don’t use the wand in hot oil – even moderately hot oil can cause a nasty
burn.
7 When using the wand in hot liquids, don’t let the blade break the surface
at an angle, as you might spray liquid outside the bowl/pan/container.
8 Don’t fill the jug with anything hotter than you can comfortably handle (i.e. liquid
temperature below 40°C).
9 Route the cable so it doesn’t overhang, and can’t be tripped over or caught.
10 Keep the hand blender and the cable away from hotplates, hobs or burners.
11 Don’t fit any attachment or accessory other than those we supply.
12 Don’t use the hand blender for any purpose other than those described in these
instructions.
13 Don’t run the motor for more than one minute at a time, then leave it for a minute to
cool down before using it again.
14 Don’t stand the blender on end, it’s unstable – lay it on the work surface.
15 Don’t wrap the cable around the blender.
16 Don’t operate the hand blender if it’s damaged or malfunctions.
17 If the cable is damaged, the hand blender must be returned, in order to avoid
hazard.
household use only
before using for the first time
• Pull the blade guard carefully off the jug blade, and dispose of the blade guard.
• Turn to “care and maintenance” on page 6 and clean everything, to remove dust and
manufacturing residues.

fitting/removing the wand
1 Unplug the handle before fitting or removing the wand.
2 Push the wand on to the end of the handle, then turn the wand slightly to the left.
3 To remove the wand, press the 5 button on the rear of the handle, and pull the
wand away from the handle.
the wand
4 Generally, the wand can do anything a normal blender can do, but faster, and with
less washing up – make mayonnaise, milkshakes, smoothies, or fruit drinks in the
beaker. You can blend, pulp or purée ingredients in the pan or bowl you’re going to
cook them in.
5 Whatever container you use, make sure it’s on a stable, flat surface, and support it
with your free hand, to prevent it wandering over the work surface.
6 Don’t immerse the wand past the top of the parallel-sided tube.
7 Don’t try to chip ice, don’t try to chop raw meat, and take great care with the
blades.
8 Don’t run the motor for more than one minute at a time, then leave it for a
minute to cool down before using it again.
avoiding spray/splashing
a) hold the wand straight
b) don’t switch on till it’s well inside the food container
c) switch off before lifting it out of the container
d) with liquids, switch on and off with the blade under the surface
hot liquids
9 The wand will withstand temperatures near boiling point. When using it in
hot liquids, don’t let the blade break the surface at an angle, as you might
spray liquid outside the bowl/pan/container.
10 Don’t use the wand in hot oil – not even moderately hot oil. While you may be able
to stand fairly hot water, oil at the same temperature will cause painful burns. Water
can be thrown off immediately and the skin will rapidly cool, but oil will stick to the
skin and blister it.
the beaker
11 Sit the beaker on a stable, flat work surface, and support it with your free hand.
12 Don’t lift it up and hold it in your hand – if it slips, you’ll hurt yourself.
13 Use the beaker with the wand or the whisk, but don’t fill more than about half full, or
it might overflow when you switch on.
14 If you want to store anything in the beaker, pull the non-slip base off the bottom,
and use it as a lid.
the whisk
15 Generally speaking, while you use the wand to replace a blender, use the whisk
where you would have normally used a balloon whisk, but let the handle do the
work, instead of your arm muscles.
16 It has a slower, gentler approach to the food you are handling.
17 It’s much better for mayonnaise, meringues, and whisking eggs.
18 Unplug the handle.
4
19 Fit the whisk gearbox to the handle.
20 Align the flanges on the shaft of the whisk with the slots in the underside of the
gearbox, and push the whisk into the gearbox.
21 Plug the handle into the wall socket, support the bowl with the mixture in it with
your free hand, to prevent it wandering over the work surface.
22 Put the whisk into the mixture, and switch on.
23 Use the whisk with liquid or liquid/fluid mixes, and only for one minute at a time.
24 Don’t immerse the whisk past the top of the wires.
25 Use it at a low speed to incorporate the mixture, then change to a higher speed for
mixing. The whisk at low speed is ideal for making mayonnaise.
26 When you’ve done, unplug the handle, remove the gearbox from the handle (5),
then pull the whisk from the gearbox.
the jug and jug blade
27 Use the jug as a mini-processor or a traditional jug blender (max 1 litre).
28 Don’t try to chip ice, and don’t try to chop raw meat.
29 Unplug the handle.
30 Hold the jug blade by the plastic part.
31 Lower it into the jug, over the spindle in the centre of the jug bottom, and give it a
couple of turns to check it rotates freely.
32 Add the ingredients – don’t fill the jug above the 1000ml (35 floz ) mark.
33 Lower the jug gearbox into the top of the jug, so that the top of the jug blade fits
into the recess in the underside of the gearbox.
34 Lower the handle into the top of the jug gearbox, and give it a slight turn right.
35 Plug the handle into the wall socket, put your free hand on top of the gearbox, to
hold it in place, and to prevent the jug from wandering, and start blending.
36 Use the blender in bursts of a few seconds, otherwise you risk overdoing it. Blend,
stop, then look – repeat till you achieve the required consistency.
37 Unplug the handle, then remove the handle from the gearbox.
38 Lift the gearbox gently from the jug – take care that any drips fall into the jug.
39 Lift out the blade by the plastic part – don’t handle the blade.
hot liquids and the jug
40 Before pouring any liquid into the jug, let the liquid cool down to the sort of
temperature you can handle comfortably (i.e. liquid temperature below 40°C).
crushed ice
41 Fit the ice holder into the top of the jug.
42 Hold the ice blade by the plastic part.
43 Lower it into the ice holder, so that the bottom of the plastic part goes through the
hole in the centre of the ice holder floor.
44 Put ice into the ice holder – for best results, don’t fill it more than about half full.
45 Lower the jug gearbox into the top of the jug, so that the top of the ice blade fits
into the recess in the underside of the gearbox.
34 Lower the handle into the top of the jug gearbox, and give it a slight turn right.
35 Plug the handle into the wall socket, put your free hand on top of the gearbox, to
hold it in place, and to prevent the jug from wandering, and start crushing.
5
36 Set the speed to 4 or 5, and run the motor in bursts of a few seconds at a time.
37 Keep a close eye on the bottom of the jug.
38 Stop before the ice reaches up to the bottom of the ice holder.
39 When you’ve finished, unplug the handle, then remove the handle from the gearbox.
40 Lift the gearbox gently from the jug – take care that any drips fall into the jug.
41 Lift out the blade by the plastic part – don’t handle the blade.
care and maintenance
14 Clean the hand blender after each use.
15 Switch off, and unplug the handle.
the handle and gearboxes
16 Don’t put the handle, the gearboxes, or the wand in water or any other liquid – wipe
their surfaces with a damp cloth.
caution keep fingers away from the blades – use a washing-up brush
the wand blade
17 Put a drop (and no more than a drop) of washing-up liquid in the beaker, then half
fill the beaker with warm water.
18 Fit the wand to the handle, and blend the contents of the beaker with a few bursts
at high speed.
19 Rinse the beaker, half fill with clean warm water, then repeat the exercise.
20 Unplug the handle, remove the wand, and leave it upright to air dry.
the other bits
21 Pull the non-slip base from the beaker.
22 Turn the non-slip base on the bottom of the jug, then pull it off.
23 Wash the whisk, ice blade, jug blade, ice holder, jug, beaker, and non-slip bases in
warm soapy water, rinse thoroughly, and leave to air dry.
24 Don’t use a cloth on any of these parts, as lint from the cloth may adhere to the
inside surfaces.
25 Don’t put the handle in water or any other liquid.
26 You may wash the beaker and its non-slip base in warm soapy water.
27 Don’t put any part of the hand blender in a dishwasher.
28 Don’t use harsh or abrasive cleaning agents or solvents.
a few simple recipes to get you started
coriander pesto (dip, topping or sauce)
4 handfuls fresh leaf coriander
4 cloves fresh garlic
120g pine nuts
250ml olive oil
120g freshly grated Parmesan
salt and freshly ground black pepper
Put the coriander, garlic, pine nuts, and a bit more than half the oil into the jug. Fit the
jug blade and gearbox, and blend at moderate speed till it looks smooth. To adjust the
thickness, add a little oil and give it a short burst. Repeat till the consistency looks right,
then remove the gearbox and blade, taste the pesto, and adjust the seasoning. Serve
as a dip (fairly thick), as a topping for soup (not too thick, but not runny), or tossed
through warm pasta (fairly runny).
6
strawberry mess
6 strawberries, hulled
2 tbsp broken meringue
100ml single or whipping cream
a sprig of fresh mint to garnish
Don’t clean the beaker between ingredients. Use the wand to whip the cream in the
beaker at high speed till soft peaks form, then transfer to a bowl. Blend the broken
meringues in the beaker at low speed just long enough to crush the meringues, then
fold them gently into the whipped cream. Purée the strawberries at low speed, fold
them gently into the whipped cream and meringue mixture, and garnish with the mint.
black olive and anchovy tapenade/sauce
250g pitted black olives
60g anchovy fillets, drained
3 tbsp capers, drained
150ml olive oil
2 tbsp brandy (optional)
fresh ground black pepper
Reserve about half of the oil. Put everything else into the jug. Fit the jug blade and
gearbox, and blend at low speed for a couple of seconds. Examine the result, then
adjust the oil, and blend till you achieve the consistency you need. For a tapenade, to
spread on toast, you need a paste. For a sauce, to toss through warm pasta, it should
be fairly runny.
horseradish and apple sauce
250ml double cream
2 sharp flavoured apple, peeled and grated
6 tbsp horseradish relish
2 tsp paprika
Put the cream into the beaker. Fit the whisk and its gearbox, whisk at medium to high
speed till soft peaks form, then spoon gently into a large bowl, and gently fold in the
rest of the ingredients (“gently” means don’t knock the air out of the cream or it’ll
collapse). Season with fresh ground black pepper, and serve with beef or sausage.
leek & potato soup (serves 4)
150g leeks, trimmed
150g potatoes, peeled
2 vegetable or chicken stock cubes
800ml water
salt and pepper to taste
Put the leeks and potatoes into a pan (2 litre or bigger). Fit the wand, and blend for a
couple of seconds (you want them lumpy, not mushy), then switch the hand blender
off, and remove it from the pan. Add the water and stock cubes, bring to the boil,
stirring, then reduce the heat, cover the pan, and simmer for 20 minutes. Let the
mixture cool for about 30 minutes, then blend at maximum speed, in the pan, till the
mixture is silky smooth. Switch the hand blender off, and remove it from the pan. Bring
the mixture up to serving temperature (don’t let it boil). Taste, adjust the seasoning,
and serve with crusty bread.
mango lassi (a rich mango smoothie)
200ml natural yogurt
1 ripe mango
200ml milk
2 tsp honey
10 ice cubes
Crush the ice with the ice blade and holder. Stone, peel and roughly chop the mango.
With the jug blade and gearbox, blend everything at medium speed for 10-15 seconds.
