Read the instructions and keep them safe. Pass them on if you pass the appliance on. Remove all
packaging, but keep it till you know the appliance works.
food processor, jug blender, or mini-chopper?
Use the food processor for thick or solid ingredients and mixtures. Use the jug blender for
liquids, like soups, sauces, and smoothies. Use the mini-chopper for herbs, spices, and other
small non-liquid ingredients.
These instructions are for the food processor. For the jug blender and mini-chopper instructions,
flip this booklet vertically.

if you come across a dense area in the mixture, or if you just want to liven it up a bit.
22 The turbo button Y only works when the motor is already running at speed 1.
mixer/chopper/creamer
23 The main mixer, chopper, and creamer go down to the bottom of the spindle, the upper
mixer fits about half way down.
24 The chopper is fitted with a blade guard.
25 Pull this down to remove it, and push it carefully up over the blades after cleaning.
26 Use the chopper for pulverizing ingredients.
27 Use the main mixer to mix ingredients together.
28 Fit the upper mixer if you’re mixing lighter ingredients (like flour and sugar), that may bounce
around, and miss the main mixer.
29 Use the creamer to thicken cream, to beat eggs, and to cream eggs and sugar together.
kneading/beating/creaming capacities
30 The kneading/beating/creaming capacities of the mixer and creamer:
yeast dough – 500g flour + 300g water
shortcrust pastry dough – 800g flour + 600g cream
sponge or cake mixture – 1.5kg
egg beating – 6 egg whites

52 Wash the removable parts in warm soapy water, rinse well, and dry.
53 Clean the inside of the spindle with a thin bottle-brush.
54 We don’t recommend using a dishwasher, as it may damage the surface finishes. If you do,
put as many of the removable parts as you can on the top tray, or in the cutlery basket.
55 Wipe the outside of the motor unit with a clean damp cloth.
56 Don’t put the motor unit in water or any other liquid.
57 Don’t use harsh or abrasive cleaning agents or solvents.
staining
58 Carotenoids, which are found in many vegetables, can cause severe staining, which may be
impossible to remove. Don’t worry about it, it won’t affect the operation of the appliance.
59 If you want to, you could try soaking the stained parts overnight in one of the following:
a) quarter of a cup of household bleach in a sink full of warm water
b) a mixture of 1 part white vinegar to two parts warm water
c) half a small packet of baking soda in enough warm water to cover the parts
caution Don’t try to mix these methods. You may make a mess, you may cause nasty eyewatering, breath-catching fumes, and you may harm the parts you’re trying to clean.

care and maintenance
48 Switch off (0) and unplug before cleaning.
49 Clean as soon after use as possible, to prevent residues setting inside the jug or mini-chopper.
50 If you’ve left it too long before cleaning, and bits have glued themselves to the inside of the
jug, use a nylon brush. If that doesn’t work, crush some ice cubes in it – that’ll shift anything.
52 Wash the removable parts in warm soapy water, rinse well, and dry.
53 Clean the inside of the spindle with a thin bottle-brush.
54 We don’t recommend using a dishwasher, as it may damage the surface finishes. If you do,
put as many of the removable parts as you can on the top tray, or in the cutlery basket.
55 Wipe the outside of the motor unit with a clean damp cloth.
56 Don’t put the motor unit in water or any other liquid.
57 Don’t use harsh or abrasive cleaning agents or solvents.

18 Pressing the turbo button will over-ride the speed set by the speed control, and give you a
burst of high speed, if you come across a dense area in the mixture, or if you want to liven it
up a bit.
19 The turbo button Y only works when the motor is already running (i.e. at speed 1).
adding ingredients
20 To add ingredients while the motor is running, turn the cap clockwise to unlock it, lift it off,
pour the new ingredients through the hole, then replace the cap, and turn it anti-clockwise
to lock it in place.
21 Check that the added ingredients don’t push the volume over the max mark.
finished?
22 Turn the speed control to 0, and wait till the blades stop moving before removing the lid
from the jug, or removing the jug from the motor unit.
23 To remove the jug, turn it to bring the arrow d over the open padlock U on the motor unit.
hot liquids
24 Before pouring into the jug, let the liquid cool down to the sort of temperature you can
handle comfortably – keep the liquid temperature below 40°C.
crushing ice (P)
25 Before using the jug to crush ice, make sure it’s clean, and rinse it out thoroughly. The
slightest trace of detergent may affect the taste of the crushed ice, and will flatten any drink
to which it is added.
26 Ice “cubes” come in many shapes and sizes. You’ll have to experiment with the ice from your
ice cube tray.
27 Start with half to threequarters of a cup of ice, or 4 to 6 cubes, and add 15ml (1 tablespoon) of
fresh cold water.
28 Put the lid on the jug, then:
a) turn the speed control to P for a second or two, then release it
b) check the state of the ice
c) repeat till the ice is the consistency that you need
28 Take care – too much blending will reduce the ice to liquid, too little will merely chip the
edges/corners off the ice.
29 Don’t try to crush ice without adding water to the jug.
30 Don’t be tempted simply to increase the amount of ice and blend for longer. This won’t work.
Too much ice will never give you satisfactory results.
using the mini-chopper
31 Turn the mini-chopper to bring the open end to the top.
32 Use the fingergrips to turn the blade unit clockwise, to release the latches on the blade unit
from the tabs on the inside of the mini-chopper.
33 Lift the blade unit out of the mini-chopper.
caution don’t touch the blades – they’re sharp
34 Put herbs, spices, or other small non-liquid ingredients into the mini-chopper.
35 Don’t fill past the max mark, or you’ll break the mini-chopper, and possibly the motor unit.
36 Check that the seal is in place round the blade unit.

using the jug
caution keep your hands away from the blades – they’re sharp.
3 Align the arrow d on the jug base with the open padlock U on the motor unit, lower the jug
on to the motor unit, then turn the jug to bring the arrow d over the closed padlock L on
the motor unit.
4 Turn the lid anti-clockwise, to unlock it, then lift it up and off the jug.
5 Put the ingredients into the jug. Don’t fill it past the max mark. If you do, the contents may
force their way past the lid when you start the motor.
fitting the lid
6 Don’t use the jug without fitting the lid. The contents may escape; you may hurt someone;
you may be tempted to put a hand into the jug.
7 Put the lid on the jug, then turn it clockwise, to lock the safety switch into the top of the
handle.
8 Align the pips on the sides of the cap with the slots in the hole in the lid, put the cap into the
hole, and turn it anti-clockwise to lock it.
9 Don’t use the jug without the cap – solid ingredients may be ejected through the hole when
they hit the blades.

10 Check that the speed control is set to 0.
11 Put the plug into the power socket (switch the socket on, if its switchable).
speed control
12 Turn the speed control clockwise to the speed you want. The speeds available are 1 (low) and
2 (high).
13 Turn the speed control back to 0 to turn the motor off.
