The metal components can be cleaned using a dry, course brush. The rest of the attachment should be cleaned in hot, soapy water. Remember to dry thoroughly.
All parts of the Ice Cream Maker should be cleaned in hot soapy water. No parts are dishwasher safe. The freezing bowl should be allowed to warm to room temperature before cleaning and should be dried thoroughly. Failure to dry this part properly could result in a film of ice once frozen which could stop the paddle turning.
Loosen the ring nut manually or with the spanner and dismantle. Wash all the parts in hot soapy water, then dry. Don’t wash any part in the dishwasher. Never use a soda solution.
Wipe the screens with vegetable oil, then wrap in greaseproof paper to prevent discolouring/rusting.

To buy a plate not included in your pack, contact the dealer from whom you purchased your appliance.
Your chosen cutting side must be uppermost. Some plates are reversible: one side slices, the other side shreds.
Ice cream made from raw ingredients should not be kept for over a week. But Ice cream tastes best fresh so do not make too far in advance ever.
Cook macaroni and rigatoni within 4 hours. Otherwise they become brittle and snap.
The bowl should be allowed to sit in the freezer for at least 24 hours, though the longer the better. The freezer should be operating at -18°C.
It should only take about half an hour for your ice cream or sorbet to be done, but it could take up to 45 minutes. If the mix is still not the desired consistency after 45 minutes, then turn off the machine and scoop the mixture out of the bowl and place into a suitable container and put in the freezer until frozen to desired consistency.
Remove stones (eg. plums, peaches, cherries).
Remove tough skins (eg melons, pineapples, cucumbers, potatoes).
Soft-skinned and other food just needs washing (eg apples, grapes, pears, strawberries, cabbage, carrots, celery, lettuce, parsley, radishes, spinach).
Wash the cone, sieve and bowl by hand, then dry thoroughly. Alternatively wash in the dishwasher (top rack only). Never immerse the connector in water, wipe over with a damp cloth.
Rinse the parts in cold water immediately (don’t use your dishwasher). Then leave to dry.
Ask your butcher for sausage skin or mail order from the Natural Casing Company Ltd, PO Box 133, Farnham, Surrey GU10 5HT, England. Use pig/hog skin on the large nozzle and sheep/lamb skin on the small nozzle. Or, instead of using skin, roll the extruded sausages in breadcrumbs or seasoned flour before cooking.
If you’re using skin, soak it in cold water for 30 minutes first, then open it up with a jet of water. Put your chosen nozzle under a running tap and pull the skin onto the nozzle.
Switch off and unclog the bowl.
If the feed tube becomes clogged, use the end of the spanner/pusher handle to push the mix onto the scroll. Don’t use anything other than the spanner handle and don’t push too hard. Never let the feed tube fill up.
You should discontinue use immediately. The freezing solution used is non toxic, but having a leak would impede the function of the attachment.
If the mixer head won’t shut, raise it, then switch on and off to reposition the metal pin.
