Before using your appliance for the first time, wash all parts of the accessories in warm soapy water (see section on cleaning in your instruction manual). Rinse and dry. Place the motor unit on a flat, clean and dry surface. Plug in your appliance.
The pulse button is used when you need short bursts of power at the optimum speed. This is a more commonly used function when using the blender and is controlled by the user which means you control how long the machine runs for in this mode. It is a useful way of avoiding over-processing of ingredients. For example, it can be used to mix fruit into a cake mixture at the end of processing or blending soft fruit into yoghurt for making a smoothie.
The stainless steel blade is used for: mixing, blending, pureeing, making breadcrumbs, batters, pastry & cakes. The blender attachment is used for pureeing liquids only (ie: soups, milkshakes etc.) or pureeing soft fruits or cooked vegetables and fruit. It should not be used for mincing meat or kneading heavy dough and pastry.
Unplug the appliance. For easier cleaning, rinse the accessories immediately after use. Wash and dry the accessories: they can be washed in the dishwasher, in water or under the tap, with the exception of the motor unit, the mincer assembly (reducer + mincer head)*, the mixer drive unit*, and the juicer body* (* depending on model). Wipe these with a damp sponge. Once they have been dried, coat the blade and mincer grills with cooking oil to keep them lubricated. Pour hot water with a few drops of washing-up liquid into the mixer bowl, close the lid fitted with the feeder cap, pulse a few times, unplug the appliance and rinse the bowl. The blades of the accessories are very sharp, handle them with care.
Many Food Processors have dishwasher safe parts, such as the bowl or blades, however it is often a product specific feature so for more information please refer to the appliance use and care instructions. The motor housing of a Food Processor should never be put in the dishwasher.
Try checking that the interlocking system is fully in place. All Food Processors need to have the bowl and the lid fitted correctly before processing will start, this is a safety feature so that the blades cannot spin while exposed. When the bowl and lid are locked into place securely, the markings on them will be aligned.
An emulsifying disc works in a different way than a traditional style dual beater whisk. When using an emulsifying disc the mixture is revolved around the bowl and when using dual beaters, the air is incorporated into the mixture more quickly, resulting in lighter and fluffier dough or batter.
A Food Processor is an appliance that aims to do most jobs you could want to do in a kitchen when preparing food, both quicker and with less effort than it would be to do such jobs by hand. The primary functions of a Food Processor are chopping, grating and mixing. Nearly all available Food Processors also have shredding and slicing functions of some sort.
A Kitchen Machine works differently from a Food Processor as the tools used for mixing are suspended from an overhead arm into the food, whereas with a Food Processor, the mixing tools operate from underneath the ingredients. A Kitchen Machine is primarily for mixing dough and cake mixtures. A Food Processor can do these jobs but not with the efficiency of a kitchen machine. If you are planning on making cakes you should consider how much you will be doing this job. If it is going to be a common occurrence then a Kitchen Machine would be a better choice. It is worth taking note of the fact that a Food Processor is far smaller than a Kitchen Machine.
