  • If a piece of hard food, such as a carrot, becomes wedged or stuck on the blade, stop the appliance and unplug, then remove the blade. Gently remove food from the blade.
  • Meat and cheese should be well chilled before slicing or shredding.
  • Insert a funnel into the feed chute when adding ingredients such as, oil, flour and sugar.
  • Do not use the food processor attachment to:– Grind coffee beans, bones, grains or hard spices– Slice or chop warm meat


  • The chopping blade works very quickly. Watch carefully to avoid overprocessing foods.
  • For best results, process foods that are about the same size.

  • Processing nuts or other hard foods may scratch the surface finish on the inside of the workbowl.
  • Never walk away from the appliance while it is on.
  • Use hot, but never boiling liquids.
  • The PULSE feature offers the best control.


  • Before slicing round fruits and vegetables with the disc, cut a thin slice from the bottom so food will be more stable. Place food cut side down in the feed chute.
  • Always remove seeds, core and pits before processing
  • Select foods that are firm and not over ripe.
  • When slicing thinner vegetables cut them just short of the length of the feed chute; stand them vertically in the feed chute so they are solidly packed and cannot turn or tilt.
  • Soft and semi hard cheeses should be well chilled before shredding.
  • Do not let the food accumulate too high (over 2/3 full); stop and empty the workbowl.
