Remove any instruction, sticker etc. Ensure that the ratings on your mincer are the same as the line voltage in your home. Wash all the parts other than the base unit in warm sudsy water and allow to dry. Your meat mincer is not only for grinding meat but can also be used for grinding vegetables, making Kebbe and sausage as well. Assembly of Mincer attachment: Fig. 1 1. Insert the mincer head into the groove on the base unit. The mincer head is joined to the base unit with a bayonet lock mechanism. Hold the mincer head with one hand keeping the food funnel at an angle of 45º in clockwise direction (Figure 1). 2. Turn the grinder head anti-clockwise in the direction of the upright arrow until the filling Fig. 2 shafts snaps into place in an upright position (Figure 2). 3. Insert the worm with the long end into the mincer head and turn slightly until it is securely coupled with the motor shaft. O-ring NOTE :- Ensure that the O-ring on the rear of the worm is in place. 4. Mount the blade on the worm with the round side facing the worm and the smooth side in contact with the disc (Figure 3). NOTE : the meat will not be minced if the blade is mounted with the wrong side facing the screw. 5. Choose and mount the mincer disc on to the blade with the groove fitting perfectly into place Fig. 3 (Figure 4). 6. Tighten nut. Take care to avoid over-tightening (Figure 5). 7. Mount the food tray on top of the filling shaft. How to use your Meat Mincer: Fig. 4 The meat mincer is intended to mince boneless meat for household use only. 1. After assembling the unit, place the mincer on a flat dry surface. Please ensure that the ventilation openings on the base and side of the motor are not blocked. 2. Make sure that the electrical supply at your home matches the supply prescribed on the unit. Fig. 5 Connect the power cord into the supply socket. 3. Place the food tray on top of the filling shaft. Place a bowl or container below the metal head to collect the minced meat flowing through the plate (Figure 6). 4. Please ensure that the meat is thawed thoroughly before mincing. Check the meat for bones and Fig. 6 unwanted fat. Clean the meat and cut into small cubes to fit the filling shaft and drop them into the food tray. 5. Switch the mincer 'ON' in the forward direction. Slowly feed the meat pieces into the filling shaft from the food tray and push down with the food pusher (Figure 7). Do not apply excessive force when pushing down. This could damage your mincer. Fig. 7 NOTE : Never use your finger to push the food. There are chances that the meat will get stuck in the worm during operation. In these times, use the reverse speed to release the jam and revert to the forward direction again after 6~10 seconds. Do not run the appliance for more than 15 minutes continuously. After 15 minutes of continuous use, allow the appliance to cool to room temperature before further usage. Once the task is over, switch the mincer 'OFF', switch off the electrical supply at the socket and remove the power from the socket before disassembling. The unit is fitted with a thermal-cut-out. If this should operate, disconnect the appliance from the electrical supply and allow it to cool to room temperature before re-connecting. Controls:- An explanation of all controls 1 - Press once to operate the unit. 1 O R O - Press once to stop the unit from operation R - Keep pressed in small intervals to reactivate from jams. Screen Plates:There are three screen plates provided with this machine - coarse, fine and sausage. Coarse - ideal for raw meat, vegetables, nuts and dry fruits, cheese, fish etc. Fine - Ideal for raw or cooked meat, fish etc. Sausage - Ideal for making sausages. How to use your Kebbe Maker: The Kebbe maker attachment has two parts, the shaper(10a) and the cone(10b). Following the assembly instructions (see assembly of mincer attachement) up until the worm screw is Fig. 8 fitted onto the motor shaft inside the mincer head (figure 8). Insert the kebbe maker with the rounded side facing the outside. Insert the securing cone and tighten the ring nut on to the head (figure 9). Fig. 9 Feed the Kebbe mixture through the food funnel using the food pusher. The mince will roll out as a hollow cylinder into the bowl (figure 10). Cut the continuous hollow cylinder into the desired lengths while it flows out. The Kebbe mixture is prepared by mincing meat and then passing the mince meat with the ingredients, wheat & onions. Repeat this till you accure the required consistency. Fig. 10 How to use your Sausage Attachment: 1. Insert the sausage disc inside the coarse & fine disc in the grinder head. 2. Insert the sausage stuffer into the nut. 3. Fit the assembled mincer head onto the motor unit. 4. Push the sausage skin (using either real or synthetic skin) over the sausage stuffer and knot the end. 5. Repeat the procedure 4 & 5, as mentioned under " How to use your meat mincer". 6. The sausage mixture is pressed through the sausage stuffer and into the sausage skin. 7. When the first sausage has reached the desired length, squeeze it through with your fingers at the end of sausage and turn the sausage around its own axis once or twice. Tip : You can turn 'OFF' the appliance after each single sausage length Note : The sharp side of the cutter must face the disc. How to use your Shredder attachment: 1. Insert the shredder attachment head into the groove on the base unit. The shredder head is joined to the base unit with a bayonet lock mechanism, similar to the meat mincer attachment. Hold the shredder head with one hand keeping the food funnel at an angle of 45 degrees in clockwise direction. 2. Turn the shredder head anti-clockwise in the direction of the upright arrow until the filling shaft snaps into place in an upright position. 3. Now insert the desired shredder disc into the shredder. 4. Rotate it slightly so that it is flush with the shredder opening and gets coupled with the drive shaft inside the shredder attachment. 5. Now you can shred vegetables (adequately cut to go through shredders chute) to meet your requirement. Switch the unit 'ON' in the forward direction. Slowly feed the vegetable pieces into the food funnel and push down with the food pusher (as shown in the fig). Do not apply excessive force when pushing down. This could damage your mincer. 6. Only use the pusher provided to press the vegetables against the shredder disc. Note: 1. Care should be taken while handling the shredder disc as the sharp edges might cut your hand. 2. Do not press the pusher hard, as it will damage the shredder disc. 3. Do not use your fingers to push the vegetables on to the shredder disc. How to care for your meat mincer: After use, switch 'OFF' the mincer and disconnect cord from the power supply. Ensure that the motor has stopped completely before disassembling. Remove the nut and detach the discs and the cutting blade from the worm. Pull the feeding screw out from the metal head. Detach the grinder head from the motor unit by pressing the head against base unit and rotating the head in anticlockwise direction by 45 degrees. Remove the meat residue if any from the end of the feeder screw. Wash all the parts in hot sudsy water & allow to dry. Do not put the parts in the dishwasher. Wipe the motor unit with a damp cloth and dry. Wipe the mincer screen plate and blade with salad oil before storing to prevent corrosion. Use the storage compartment on the base unit to store two blades and kebbe attachment. Do's and Dont's: 1. Always ensure that the bones and unwanted fat are removed from the meat before mincing. 2. Always use the pusher provided. Never use your fingers or any other utensils. 3. Never immerse the base unit into any liquid. 4. Do not fix the cutting blade or mincer blades when using kebbe attachment. 5. Do not try to mince material with hard fibers like ginger. 6. To avoid blocks and Jams inside the feeder screw, don't use excessive force. 7. If the unit gets blocked due to hard materials lodged on to the feeder screw or cutting blade, immediately switch 'OFF' the unit and remove the ingredients before starting again. 8. When switching from 'ON' to 'OFF/REV' or vice versa, wait for 6 seconds to assure that the motor has stopped completely. 9. Care is needed when handling the cutter blade especially during removal, re-fitting and cleaning. 10. Switch 'OFF' and unplug the appliance before approaching parts that move while in use.
