using the cutting plates

shredding plate

Cut pieces of food to fit the feed tube. Fill the tube almost to the top and push down using the pusher with an even pressure whilst the machine is running.

Longer shreds can be obtained by stacking pieces horizontally in the feed tube eg carrot.

slicing plate

If necessary cut food to fit the feed tube. Core foods such as apples and peppers. Pack the food in an upright position in the feed tube. The height should be slightly shorter than the feed tube. Using the pusher, push down with an even pressure whilst the machine is running.


Use fresh ingredients.

Don’t cut food up too small. Fill the feed tube fairly full, this prevents food from slipping sideways during processing.

When slicing or shredding: food placed upright comes out shorter than food placed horizontally.

After using a cutting plate there will always be a small amount of waste on the plate or in the food.

Do not allow food to build up to the underside of the plate - empty regularly.

Push food down the feed tube using an even pressure.

maxi blend canopy

When blending, use the maxi blend canopy in conjunction with the knife blade. It allows you to increase the liquid processing capacity of the bowl and improve the chopping performance of the blade.

1Place the canopy into the bowl over the knife blade - do not push down ￿.

care & cleaning

Always switch off and unplug before cleaning.

Handle blades and cutting plates with care - they are extremely sharp.

Some foods may discolour the plastic. This is perfectly normal and won’t harm the plastic or affect the flavour of your food. Rub with a cloth dipped in vegetable oil to remove the discolouration.

power unit

Wipe with a damp cloth, then dry. Ensure that the interlock area is clear of food debris.

Don’t immerse the power unit in water.

Wrap excess cord around the bracket at the back of the appliance.

all other parts

Wash by hand, then dry.

Alternatively they can be washed on the top rack of your dishwasher. A short low temperature programme is recommended.
