  • How do I clean my Mincer attachment?

    2. Wipe the screens with vegetable oil, then wrap in greaseproof paper to prevent discolouring/rusting.

  • What do I use the knife blade for on my Food Processor attachment?

    Use the knife blade to chop raw and cooked meat, cooked eggs, vegetables, nuts, pâtés and dips and to also make crumbs from bread and biscuits. Always hold the knife blade by the finger grip at the top, away from the cutting edge, both when handling and cleaning. Take care not to over process when using the knife blade.
