Important Safeguards
When using electrical appliances, basic safety precautions should always be followed including the following:
1.READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS.
2.To protect against risk of electrical shock do not put cord, plugs, or appliance in water or other liquid. Ensure that
appliance does not get wet (water splashes etc.) and do not use it with wet hands.
3.This appliance is not intended for use by persons (including children) with reduced physical, sensory or mental
capabilities, or lack of experience and knowledge, unless they have been given supervision or instruction concerning
use of the appliances by a person responsible for their safety.
4.Children should be supervised to ensure that they do not play with the appliance.
5.Unplug from outlet when not in use, before putting on or taking off parts, and before cleaning. You might accidentally
start the appliance if the unit is still plugged into the outlet and cause serious personal injury.
6.Avoid contacting moving parts. Blades are sharp and spin at a high speed and can cause injuries.
7.Do not operate any appliance with a damaged cord or plug or after the appliance malfunctions, or has been damaged
in any manner. Bring it to a qualified technician for examination, repair or electrical or mechanical adjustment.
8.The use of attachments not recommended or sold by the manufacturer may cause a risk of injury to persons. Only
items designed for use with this appliance should be used at all times.
9.Do not use outdoors. This unit is designed to be used only indoors.
10.Do not let cord hang over edge of table or counter. The cord can get tangled or cause the appliance to fall.
11.Do not let cord contact hot surface, including the stove. The protective insulation will burn making the appliance
inoperable or unsafe to operate.
12.Keep hands and utensils away from moving blades while processing food to reduce the risk of severe injury to persons
or damage to the Mini Chopper. A scraper may be used but must be used only when the Mini Chopper is not running.
13.Blades are sharp. Handle carefully. Use the blade’s collar to handle. Touching the blades can cause injuries.
14.To reduce the risk of injury, never place chopping/mincing blade onto the motor base alignment without first putting
chopper bowl properly in place. Doing so can cause bodily harm.
