INTRODUCTION Congratulations on your purchase of a Cuisinart® Premier Series 11-Cup Food Processor. This product is the ultimate food preparation tool, and it comes from the originator of the American food processor, Cuisinart. The Cuisinart® Premier Series 11-Cup Food Processor has all the elements of quality that Cuisinart is known for, including a powerful motor, the largest feed tube, and the longest warranty in the industry.
THE MACHINE INCLUDES: 1. Housing base with a vertically projecting shaft and convenient touchpad control panel. 2. 11-cup work bowl. 3. Cover with extra large feed tube. 4. Pusher assembly that slides inside the feed tube. 5. Unique metal dough blade, designed specifically for our dough speed control. 6. Sharp metal chopping/mixing blade. 7. Serrated slicing disc. 8. Shredding disc. 9. Detachable stem for discs (not shown). 10. Plastic spatula (not shown).
4. With the stem facing down, place the assembly over the centre hub. It should fit snugly and rest on the bottom of the work bowl. 5. Place work bowl cover onto work bowl, with the handle area just to the left of centre. Turn counterclockwise to lock onto work bowl. 6. Align pusher with the feed tube opening on the work bowl cover and slide the activating rod down to the bottom. 7. Use the cord wrap on the housing base underside to add or remove cord. 8. You are now ready to operate the machine.
spinning. Once it does, turn the cover clockwise to unlock, and remove by lifting it off. Remove the bowl from the base of the machine before removing the blade. This creates a seal to prevent food from leaking. Turn the bowl clockwise to unlock from the base, and lift straight up to remove. To prevent the blade from falling from the work bowl onto your hand when emptying the work bowl, use one of the following methods. Be sure your hands are dry.
herbs you chop at a time, the finer chop you can obtain. If completely dry when chopped, parsley and other herbs will keep for at least 4-5 days, stored in an airtight bag in the refrigerator. They may be frozen for months, stored in an airtight container or bag. To chop peel from citrus fruit or to chop sticky fruit like dates or raisins: For citrus, remove only the peel with a vegetable peeler, not the white pith which is bitter tasting.
using pasteurized liquid eggs, or the "cooked egg" recipe on page 52), salt, vinegar or lemon juice, dry mustard, and two tablespoons of the oil until smooth, at least 30 seconds. With the machine running, pour 1/4 cup of the oil into the small pusher. After it dribbles through the pinhole in the bottom, remove the small pusher and very slowly add the remaining oil while the machine runs. Process until all the oil has been added and the mixture is totally emulsified.
thoroughly mixed with the sugar and eggs. Then add flavouring and liquid – vanilla, spices, cocoa, etc. Process until mixed. Add the dry ingredients to the work bowl. Process by pulsing, inspecting after each pulse. Stop pulsing as soon as the dry ingredients have almost disappeared into the batter. Overprocessing will cause quick breads and cakes to be tough. (If your recipe calls for ingredients that are to be coarsely chopped – like raisins or nuts – add them last with the mixed dry ingredients.
and tomatoes, and for all cheeses. Use medium pressure for most food: apples, celery, citrus fruit, potatoes and zucchini. Use firm pressure for hard vegetables like carrots and yams. PRACTICING SLICING AND SHREDDING 1. Insert a slicing or shredding disc, put the cover on the work bowl and insert the food in the feed tube. 2. Slide the pusher into place, and apply pressure to the pusher while pressing down the PULSE button. Release the button as soon as the food is sliced or shredded. 3.
The slices should be assembled horizontally with the cut edges facing front and back. Reinsert them in the feed tube, wedging them in tightly. Slice them again. You will obtain long julienne strips. With the optional Square Julienne Disc, you can make square julienne strips in one operation. SLICING MEAT AND POULTRY Cooked meat and poultry: The food must be very cold. If possible, use a piece of food just large enough to fit in the feed tube.
IMPORTANT: Never try to slice soft cheese like mozzarella or hard cheese like Parmesan. You may damage the slicing disc or the food processor itself. You can successfully shred most cheeses except soft ones. The exception is mozzarella, which shreds well if thoroughly chilled. Hard cheeses like Parmesan shred well only at room temperature. Therefore, only attempt to shred mozzarella when well chilled, and Parmesan when at room temperature.
machine on and let it run for about 20 seconds. (Cheese, nuts and raisins may be added with the dry ingredients or during the final kneading. To leave them almost whole, add them 5 seconds before you stop kneading. For a finer texture, add them sooner.) Adding liquids: All liquid should be added through the small feed tube while the machine is running. Add liquid in a slow, steady stream, only as fast as dry ingredients absorb it.
Blade rises in work bowl: Blade may not have been pushed down as far as possible before processing started. Excessively sticky dough can cause blade to rise even though it cleans inside of work bowl. If dough feels very sticky, reinsert blade and immediately add 2 tablespoons (30 ml) flour through small feed tube while machine is running. Dough doesn’t clean inside of work bowl: • Amount of dough may exceed maximum capacity of your food processor. Remove half and process in 2 batches.
• Don’t process too long after all ingredients are incorporated. Rich doughs will give you good results after only 30 seconds of kneading. Blade doesn’t incorporate ingredients: Butter or margarine, if not melted, must be cut into tablespoon-size pieces before being added to work bowl. Make sure butter or margarine is at room temperature. Metal dough blade rises in work bowl: Blade may not have been pushed down as far as possible before processing started. Machine may be overloaded.
when the processor is about to be used. chopping blade or dough blade. FOR YOUR SAFETY Be careful to prevent the chopping blade from falling out of the work bowl when emptying the bowl. Remove blade before tilting bowl, or hold it in place with your finger, a spatula or a spoon. Like all powerful electrical appliances, a Premier Series 11 Cup Food Processor should be handled with care. Follow these guidelines to protect yourself and your family from misuse that could cause injury.
