Russell Hobbs product_222 Product User Manual
Read the instructions and keep them safe. If you pass the appliance on, pass on the
instructions too. Remove all packaging, but keep it till you know the appliance works.
important safeguards
Follow basic safety precautions, including:
1 This appliance must only be used by a responsible adult.
2 Don’t put the handle in liquid, don’t use it in a bathroom, near water, or
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 dismantling and/or cleaning
g) unplug before fitting or removing an attachment
h) don’t leave the blender unattended while plugged in
i) use and store the appliance out of reach of children
5 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.
6 Don’t use the wand in hot oil – even moderately hot oil can cause a nasty burn.
7 Take great care when handling the chopper blades – they’re very sharp.
8 Route the cable so it doesn’t overhang, and can’t be tripped over or caught.
9 Keep the appliance and the cable away from hotplates, hobs or burners.
10 Don’t fit an attachment or accessory other than those we supply.
11 Don’t use the appliance for any purpose other than those described in these
12 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.
13 Don’t stand the blender on end, it’s unstable – lay it on the work surface.
14 Don’t wrap the cable around the blender.
15 Don’t operate the appliance if it’s damaged or malfunctions.
16 If the cable is damaged, return the appliance, to avoid hazard.
household use only
before using for the first time
1 Turn to “care and maintenance” on page 5, and clean the blender and attachments
thoroughly, to remove manufacturing dust, etc.
fitting/removing attachments
2 Unplug the handle before fitting or removing attachments.
3 To fit an attachment, align the arrow d on the rear of the attachment with the open
padlock U on the rear of the handle, bring them together, then turn the attachment
to align the arrow d with the closed padlock L on the handle. It’s a bayonet fitting.
4 To remove the attachment, turn it to align the arrow d with the open padlock U on
the handle, then pull it off the handle.
the speed buttons
5 Press the top button • • for high speed, release it to switch off.
6 Press the bottom button • for low speed, release it to switch off.
7 Use high speed • • with the wand.
8 With the bowl and chopper, use low speed • for a coarser chop, high speed • • for a
fine chop. If the size of the chop is critical, low speed gives you a bit more control.
9 With the whisk, use low speed • to incorporate the mixture, then change to high
speed • • for mixing. The whisk at low speed • is ideal for making mayonnaise.
the wand
10 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.
11 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.
12 Don’t immerse the wand past the top of the parallel-sided tube.
13 Don’t use the wand for more than one minute at a time, then leave it for a
minute to cool down.
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
14 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.
15 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
16 When using it with the wand, don’t fill above the 600ml mark on the beaker, to
prevent the contents escaping.
17 Sit it on a stable, flat work surface, and support it with your free hand.
18 Don’t lift it off the work surface and hold it in your hand – if it slips, you’ll hurt
19 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.
the whisk
20 Unplug the handle.
21 Fit the whisk gearbox to the handle (d from U to L).
22 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.
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 low speed • to incorporate the mixture, then change to high 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 (d
from L to U), then pull the whisk from the gearbox.
the bowl and chopper
27 Unplug the handle.
28 Fit the chopper gearbox to the handle (d from U to L).
caution handle only the plastic part of the chopper – not the blade
29 Push the chopper down over the spindle inside the bowl, and give it a
couple of turns to check it rotates freely.
30 Add the ingredients – don’t fill it more than half full.
31 Align the latches on the gearbox with the slots on the bowl, lower the gearbox into
the bowl, and turn the gearbox about a centimetre anti-clockwise, to lock it in place.
32 Plug the handle into the wall socket, support the bowl, and switch on.
33 Use the chopper in bursts of a few seconds, otherwise you risk overdoing it. Chop,
stop, then look – repeat till you achieve the required consistency.
34 Unplug the handle, turn the gearbox clockwise to release it from the bowl, then lift
out the blade by the plastic part – don’t handle the blade.
35 To remove the gearbox from the handle, move the d from L to U.
36 You can use the bowl and chopper as a mini food processor. It’ll also make
breadcrumbs, chop nuts, and powder dried veg.
37 Don’t try to chip ice, don’t try to chop raw meat, and take great care with the blades.
care and maintenance
1 Clean the appliance after each use.
2 Switch the appliance off, and unplug it.
3 Take great care with the chopper blade – wash it with a nylon washing-up
4 Wipe the handle and gearbox surfaces with a soft damp cloth.
5 Don’t put the handle or either gearbox in water or any other liquid.
6 Clean the blade end of the wand in hot soapy water, with a nylon brush. Try not to
get water inside the wand. If you do, stand it blade uppermost on the draining
board to drain.
7 Clean the whisk in warm soapy water.
8 The flexible cover can be prised off the bottom of the bowl. Make sure you replace it
before use – it’s three non-skid feet help keep the bowl from turning in use.
9 The beaker, bowl, and cover can be washed in warm soapy water. Rinse thoroughly
to remove all traces of soap and dry thoroughly before use.
10 Assemble the chopper, bowl, cover, and gearbox, and store them assembled.
11 Don’t put any part of the appliance in a dishwasher.
12 Don’t use harsh or abrasive cleaning agents or solvents.
