Reading the operating instructions will help you get to know your appliance and enable you to use the equipment correctly. Please read these instructions in their entirety and make sure that anyone else who may use the appliance also reads them beforehand. USE UNPACKING • WARNING - some of the tools are very sharp e.g. blades, etc.. INSTALLATION • We recommend that you install your appliance on its wall frame. CONNECTION • Always check that your mains supply corresponds to that indicated on the identification plate on the motor unit and that it can withstand the amperage. • Never plug your appliance into the mains supply before placing it inside the preparation bowl. HANDLING • Always take care when handling the blades, as they are extremely sharp. ASSEMBLY PROCEDURES • Follow the various assembly procedures carefully (see page 7) and make sure that all the attachments are correctly positioned. CLEANING • As a precaution, always unplug your appliance • Never try to override the safety systems before cleaning it. • Never insert an object into the preparation. • Always clean the appliance and its attachments at • Never switch the appliance on unless it has been the end of each cycle. • Never immerse the motor unit in water. placed in the preparation bowl. • Before dismantling the foot, bell or whisk always • For parts made from aluminum, use cleaning fluids intended for aluminum. check that the power mixer is unplugged. • For plastic parts , do not use detergents that are • We recommend that you tilt the appliance at too alkaline (e.g., containing too much caustic soda a slight angle to prevent the bell from touching the or ammonia). • Robot-Coupe can in no way be held responsible for bottom of the container. the user’s failure to follow the basic rules of cleaning and hygiene. WA R N I N G Procedure to follow if the stick blender is accidentally immersed during use. 1) Do not touch either the power mixer, the bowl or the work surface. 2) Unplug the mixer’s power cord from the wall socket. 3) Remove the power mixer from the preparation. 4) Tilt the power mixer to drain off as much liquid as possible. 5) Do not switch the power mixer back on, as there is still a risk of electrocution. 6) Send the power mixer to a Robot-Coupe approved after-sales service to have the electrical components cleaned and dried. MAINTENANCE • Before opening the motor housing, it is absolutely vital to unplug the appliance. • Check the seals and washers regularly and ensure that the safety devices are in good working order. • It is particularly important to maintain and check the attachments since certain ingredients contain corrosive agents, e.g. citric acid. • Never operate the appliance if the power cord or plug has been damaged or if the appliance fails to work properly or has been damaged in any way. • Do not hesitate to contact your local Maintenance Service if something appears to be wrong. 5 YOU HAVE JUST PURCHASED A MINI POWER MIXER The new Mini MP 160 V.V., Mini MP 190 V.V., Mini MP 240 V.V., Mini MP 190 Combi and Mini MP 240 Combi models are the latest additions to RobotCoupe’s range of power mixer. They have been specially designed for processing smaller quantities. They are fitted with a foot, blades and an emulsifying disc which can be entirely dismantled, and their tubes measure 160, 190 and 240 mm long respectively. Models Mini MP 160 V.V. Mini MP 190 V.V.

They will enable you to make soups, vegetables purées and cereal preparations without any effort. The whisk function is ideal for making pancake batter, mayonnaise, beaten egg whites, chocolate mousse, butter sauces, whipped cream or smooth fromage frais. The whisk is composed with a metallic gear box even more resistant when processing pan cakes or mashed potatoes. The variable-speed function will enable you to adjust the speed to suit each preparation and to start the processing at a lower speed in order to reduce splashing. 6 Each power mixer is supplied with a wall support for easy storage. The simple design of these appliances allows the assembly and dismantling of the moving parts in no time at all, to ease maintenance and cleaning. These instructions contain important information that will enable you to extract the greatest return on your investment. We therefore strongly advise you to read these instructions carefully before using the appliance. This class II appliance (double insulation) requires a single-phase alternating current but does not need an earthed socket. The universal-type motor is fitted with an interference suppressor. The power supply must be protected by a differential circuit breaker and a 10 A fuse. Check that you have a standard 10/16 A single-phase socket. Make sure that the voltage of your power supply matches that shown on the identification plate of your appliance. Robot-Coupe supplies these models with different types of motors: 230 V / 50 Hz for power supplies of: 220 V to 240 V. 120 V / 60 Hz 220 V / 60 Hz The power mixer is supplied with a single-phase plug connected to a power cord. OPERATING THE APPLIANCE • STARTING AND STOPPING 1. Plug your appliance into the mains, making sure you do not press the button (BC). 2. Insert the foot into the preparation. 3. Press the control button (BC), and the power mixer will start up. 4. To stop the power mixer, release the control button (BC). • VARIABLE-SPEED OPERATION Follow steps 1 to 4 above, then: 5. Change the speed of the motor by turning the variable speed button (MV) towards the maximum or minimum as required. Whisk function (Mini MP 190 Combi, Mini MP 240 Combi): speed between 350 and 1 560 rpm. For making mashed potatoes, you need to process at low speed for a good quality result. Mixer function (Mini MP 160 V.V., Mini MP 190 V.V., Mini MP 240 V.V., Mini MP 190 Combi, Mini MP 240 Combi): speed between 2 000 and 12 500 rpm. It is advisable to start at a low speed when using the whisk. With the self-regulating speed system, once you have selected a speed, it will remain constant, even if the consistency of your mixture changes. WORKING POSITION For a more ergonomic approach, we recommend that you hold the handle of the appliance in one hand and the container in the other.
