The blunt edge provides an effective cutting surface area to grind through spices and other difficult foods.
Pulse activation provides optimum control for accuracy processing, whether slicing or grinding. Spatula, item manual and dish pamphlet consisted of.
The powerful high-speed 250-Watt motor works hard and quick to achieve any small job with ease. Slice herbs, onions, garlic; grind spices, hard cheese, purée infant foods; mix mayo and flavored butters, all with the very same compact appliance.
The Mini-Prep Plus Processor takes up minimum counter space and stores nicely on the counter top or in a cabinet.
Use the Chop function for slicing, puréeing and mixing. It’s the very best choice, for example, when chopping soft, fragile food such as herbs, celery, onions, garlic and most cheeses. It is also the right option for puréeing cooked vegetables, making mayo and blending salad dressing. Pulse action is best when you are using the slice function. Two or three pulses are frequently enough. Use the Grind function for grinding spices and for chopping hard food such as peppercorns, seeds, chocolate and nuts. Continuous-hold action is best when you are using the grind function.
You can include liquids such as water, oil or flavoring while the maker is running. For example, you might wish to add oil when making mayonnaise or salad dressing, or you might include vanilla or alcohol when making frozen yogurt. Pour the liquid through one of the two openings in the cover.
Sometimes food will stay with the sides of the bowl as you process. Stop the device to clear food away. After the blade has actually stopped moving, get rid of the cover and use the spatula to scrape the food from the sides of the bowl back into the center. To simplify cleansing, wash the work bowl, cover and blade instantly after each use, so that food won’t dry on them. Wash blade assembly, work bowl, cover and spatula in warm soapy water. If you have a dishwashing machine, you can wash the work bowl, cover, blade assembly and spatula on the leading rack.
The Mini-Prep Plus Processor shops neatly on the counter top in a minimum of area. The concealed cord storage below the motor base will help to keep excess cord off the countertop. Shop the unit put together to prevent loss of parts.
