Cleaning the Food Processor

How to Clean the Food Processor

IMPORTANT: The BPA-free bowl requires special handling. If you choose to use a dishwasher instead of hand washing, please follow these guidelines. 

  1. Press the OFF/PULSE button, then unplug the Food Processor before cleaning.

  1. Wipe the base and cord with a warm, damp cloth. Thoroughly dry with a soft cloth. Do not use abrasive cleaners or scouring pads. Do not immerse base in water or other liquid.

  1. All parts are top rack dishwasher safe. Avoid laying the bowl on its side. Thoroughly dry all parts after washing. Use gentle dishwashing cycles such as normal. Avoid high-temperature cycles.

NOTE: If washing the food processor parts by hand, avoid the use of abrasive cleansers or scouring pads. They may scratch or cloud the work bowl and cover.

  1. You can store up to two blades and two discs as well as the drive adapter inside of the work bowl when the Food Processor is not in use. Wrap the power cord around the cord storage on the bottom of the base, then secure the plug by clipping it to the housing.
