Using Food Processor for First Time

Before First Use

Before using your Food Processor for the first time, wash all parts and accessories either by hand or in the dishwasher (CLICK HERE for  “Cleaning the Food Processor” section). Your Food Processor is designed so that all accessories may be stored inside the work bowl.

  1. Lift up the lid latch to unlock the cover. Tilt the work bowl cover back and lift it straight up so that the lid hinge pulls out of the handle hinge.

  1. Remove all parts and accessories from the work bowl, and lift the food pusher out of the feed tube.
