When using electrical appliances, basic safety precautions should always be followed including:

Read all instructions, including these important safeguards and the care and use instructions in this manual.

To protect against fire, electric shock and injury to persons, do not immerse cord, plugs, or other electric parts in water or other liquids.

Close supervision is necessary when this appliance is used by or near children.

Unplug the appliance from outlet when not in use, before putting on or taking off parts and before cleaning.

Avoid contact with moving parts.

Do not operate this appliance with a damaged cord or plug, after the appliance malfunctions or if the appliance is dropped or damaged in any manner. If you experience any problems with your appliance, unplug it immediately from the electrical outlet. For service information see warranty page.

The use of accessory attachments, not recommended or sold by Focus Electrics may cause fire, electric shock or injury to persons.

Do not use outdoors.

Do not let the cord hang over the edge of a table or counter.

Do not let the cord come into contact with hot surfaces, including a stove.

Never feed food by hand. Always use food pusher.

Keep hands and utensils away from moving blades or discs while processing food to reduce the risk of severe injury to persons or damage to the appliance. A scraper may be used but must be used only when the food processor is not running.

Blades are sharp; handle carefully.

To reduce the risk of injury, never place cutting blade or discs on base without first putting bowl properly in place.

Be certain the cover is securely locked in place before operating the appliance.

Do not attempt to defeat the cover interlock mechanism.

This appliance has a polarized plug (one blade is wider than the other). To reduce the risk of electric shock, this plug is intended to fit into a polarized outlet only one way. If the plug does not fit fully into the outlet, reverse the plug. If it still does not fit, contact a qualified electrician. Do not attempt to modify the plug in any way.

To prevent personal injury or property damage, read and follow all instructions and warnings.

OPERATING PRECAUTIONS

To disconnect, grip plug and pull from wall outlet. Never pull on cord to disconnect.

A short power-supply cord is provided to reduce risks resulting from becoming entangled in or tripping over a longer cord.

Longer, detachable power-supply cords or extension cords are available and may be used if care is exercised in their use. While use of an extension cord is not recommended, if you must use one, the marked electrical rating of the detachable power-supply cord or extension cord should be at least as great as the electrical rating of the appliance. If the appliance is of the grounded type, the extension cord should be a grounding-type 3-wire cord. The cord should be arranged so that it will not hang over the counter top or tabletop where it can be pulled by children or tripped over.

After running the motor continuously for ninety seconds, wait at least three minutes before running the motor again.

Do not use this appliance for other than its intended use.

2.Insert the disc/blade support in the center of the processing bowl over the shaft. Be sure the disc/blade support is firmly in place and positioned all the way down on the shaft.

3.Select the desired blade or disc and slide over the disc blade support in the processing bowl.

4.Put the processor lid on the processing bowl, lining up the locking mechanism tab behind the processing bowl handle. Turn the processing lid clockwise until the lid locks in place. The food processor will not start until the processor lid is locked into position. CAUTION: Always wait until the blades have stopped turning before removing the processor lid and adding or removing food.

USING YOUR FOOD PROCESSOR

ChefscapeFood Processor Controls

“OFF” - turns the appliance off. “ON” – turns the appliance on.

“MIN” - runs the appliance at low speed. This speed should be used for the initial 30 seconds of processing.

“MAX” - runs the appliance at high speed. Use this speed for the final stages of processing.

“PULSE” - gives short bursts of power at high speed.

SLICING, SHREDDING, or RASPING

1.Assemble the food processor by following steps 1 and 2 on page 5.

2.Select the desired slicing/shredding or rasping disc and place the appropriate side (one side is for slicing and the other is for grating) over the disc/blade support. CAUTION: Be extremely careful when handling the discs and blades, they are very sharp.

3.Place the processor lid on top of the processing bowl and lock in place.

4.Cut food into equal lengths, slightly shorter than the feed tube. Note: Use the food pusher as a cutting guide for length and width.

5.Place the cut food to be sliced or shredded in the feed tube on the processor lid. Pack the feed tube full so food stands upright for slicing. Insert the food pusher on top of the food pieces.

6.Plug cord into a 120-volt, AC electrical outlet ONLY.

7.Turn the control dial to “MAX.” Adjust your pressure on the food pusher depending on the type of food used. Soft foods require less pressure, hard foods require more pressure. When the feed tube is empty turn the control dial to “OFF.” Refill the feed tube and repeat the slicing/shredding process.

CLEANING YOUR FOOD PROCESSOR

Before using your ChefscapeFood Processor for the first time and after each use, be sure to thoroughly wash all parts, except the motor base in warm, soapy water, rinse thoroughly and dry. To prolong the life of your appliance, do not wash parts in the dishwasher. Reassemble the food processor and store with the lid ajar.

Store blades in a safe manner to prevent accidental injury.

CAUTION: Blades are very sharp, use extreme caution when handling and cleaning.

HELPFUL HINTS

Cut food into approximately ¾” pieces. You will get a more even chop if you start with pieces that are all the same size.

When chopping dry ingredients such as bread crumbs, nuts, spices, etc., make sure the processing bowl, blades, and discs are completely dry.

The “PULSE” button should be operated in short bursts. As the “PULSE” button is pressed and released, the blades should stop rotating between pulses.

Do not over-blend foods. Most ingredients should be properly blended or chopped in seconds. Do not operate the motor base for longer than 90 seconds at a time.

Soft to medium firm cheeses can be sliced, shredded, or grated through the feed tube using the appropriate disc. Harder cheeses like parmesan must be chopped using the chopping blade.

Fruits and vegetables should be peeled and cored if necessary. Remove large, hard pits and seeds. Cut into ¾” pieces and process up to 1 cup at a time.

Meat, poultry, and fish should be cold but not frozen. First, cut into ¾” pieces. Put up to ½ pound of meat in the processing bowl. Pulse or run the motor continuously until the desired consistency. Do not run formore than 90 seconds.

Never try to remove the processor bowl and lid together as one unit, this can damage the food processor.

Occasionally a piece of food may become wedged between the blade and the processing bowl. If this happens, unplug the appliance, remove the processor lid, lift the blade out carefully and remove the wedged piece. Empty the processing bowl, reinsert the blade, replace the ingredients, and lock the lid in place to continue processing.
