Use the slicing side of the disc. Stack
leaves. Roll up and stand up in feed tube.
Process using even pressure.
To slice uncooked meat or poultry,
such as stir-fry meats:
Cut or roll food to fit feed tube. Wrap
and freeze food until hard to the touch,
30 minutes to 2 hours, depending on
thickness of food. Check to be sure you
can still pierce food with the tip of a
sharp knife. If not, allow to thaw slightly.
Process using even pressure.
To slice cooked meat or poultry,
including salami, pepperoni, etc.:
Food should be very cold. Cut in pieces
to fit feed tube. Process food using firm,
even pressure.
To shred firm and soft cheeses:
Firm cheese should be very cold. For
best results with soft cheeses such as
mozzarella, freeze 10 to 15 minutes
before processing. Cut to fit feed tube.
Process using even pressure.

DOUGH BLADE
The dough blade is specially
designed for mixing and
kneading yeast dough quickly and
thoroughly. For the best results, do not
knead recipes which use more than 2-3
