Black & Decker FP1000M, FP1600B, FP1700B, FP1800B - Food Processors Manual


  • This product is for household use only.

When using electrical appliances, basic safety precautions should always be followed, including the following:

  • Read all instructions.
  • To protect against risk of electrical shock do not immerse cord, plugs or appliance in water or other liquid.
  • Close supervision is necessary when any appliance is used by or near children.
  • Unplug from outlet when not in use, before putting on or taking off parts and before cleaning.
  • Avoid contacting moving parts.
  • Do not operate any appliance with a damaged cord or plug or after the appliance malfunctions, or is dropped or damaged in any manner. Return appliance to the nearest authorized service facility for examination, repair or electrical or mechanical adjustment. Or, call the appropriate toll-free number on the cover of this manual.
  • The use of attachments not recommended or sold by the manufacturer may cause fire, electric shock or injury.
  • Do not use outdoors.
  • Do not let cord hang over edge of table or counter.
  • Keep hands and utensils away from moving blade or disc while processing food to reduce the risk of severe injury to persons or damage to the food processor. A scraper may be used, but must be used only when the food processor is not running.
  • Blade is sharp. Handle carefully.
  • To reduce the risk of injury, never place cutting blade or discs on base without first putting bowl properly in place.
  • Be certain cover is securely locked in place before operating appliance.
  • Never feed food by hand. Always use food pusher.
  • Do not attempt to defeat the cover interlock mechanism.

Note: The maximum rating is based on the chopping blade. Other attachments may draw significantly less power.


This appliance has a polarized plug (one blade is wider than the other). To reduce the risk of electric shock, this plug is intended to fit into a polarized outlet only one way. If the plug does not fit fully into the outlet, reverse the plug. If it still does not fit, contact a qualified electrician. Do not attempt to modify the plug in any way.


This appliance is equipped with a tamper-resistant screw to prevent removal of the outer cover. To reduce the risk of fire or electric shock, do not attempt to remove the outer cover. There are no user-serviceable parts inside. Repair should be done only by authorized service personnel.


The cord of this appliance was selected to reduce the possibility of tangling in or tripping over a longer cord. If more length is needed, use an extension cord rated no less than 15 amperes. (For 220-volt rated products, use an extension cord rated no less than 6 amperes.) When using an extension cord, do not let it drape over the working area or dangle where someone could accidentally trip over it. Handle cord carefully for longer life; avoid jerking or straining it at outlet and appliance connections.

Note: If the power-supply cord is damaged, it should be replaced by qualified personnel; in Latin America, by an authorized service center.

The controls are located on the front of the base (A).

Press OFF/PULSE or ON to select a function (see directions below).

  • Processor should be stored in OFF position and unplugged when not in use.
  • Use PULSE for short processing tasks. This lets you control the size and uniformity of foods being chopped.
  • The OFF/PULSE button must be pressed and held for the appliance to operate in PULSE mode. When released, the appliance will stop.
  • The motor of the processor will run as long as the OFF/PULSE button is held down. Press the button and then release to allow the blade to stop running and the food to fall to the bottom of the workbowl.
  • Pulsing gives better control when chopping, mincing, mixing and blending foods. You can control the size of the foods, from coarse to fine.

When the ON control is selected, the processor will run continuously until the OFF/PULSE button is pressed.


  • Remove all packing material and any stickers from the product.
  • Please go to to register your warranty.

    Handle chopping blade and slicing and shredding disc carefully. They are very sharp.
  • Wash all removable parts as instructed in CARE AND CLEANING section of this manual.
  • Select a level, dry countertop where the appliance is to be used, allowing air space on all sides to provide proper ventilation for the motor.



The center post is removable:

  1. Turn the bowl upside down.
  2. Grasp the clear outer tabs and turn the center post clockwise until the lower tabs are free. Lift the post out (B).
  3. To return to its original position, place center post into smaller opening in bottom of workbowl and turn counterclockwise until tabs snap into place.


  1. Attach center post to workbowl. Place the workbowl on the base with handle turned to the right of the locking mechanism (C) over the unlock symbol .
  2. Hold handle and rotate workbowl clockwise toward the lock symbol until it clicks firmly into place (D).

Note: Be sure to lock the workbowl in place before attaching the chopping blade or the slicing and shredding disc and the cover.


The chopping blade is used to coarsely or finely chop, mince, mix, and puree foods to a smooth consistency.

  1. Lock workbowl into position (see Illustrations C and D).
  2. Hold chopping blade by center shaft and insert onto center post (E).

    The chopping blade is very sharp. Use caution when handling and storing.
  3. Place food in workbowl.
  4. Place cover on workbowl and lock into place by rotating clockwise (see Illustration H).
  5. Place the food pusher in place.

    Never use your fingers to direct food through the feed chute.
  6. Select your desired speed (PULSE or ON).
    Note: Process foods for no more than a few seconds at a time. Pulsing produces excellent results and offers greater control.

    Make sure the chopping blade has completely stopped spinning before removing cover from processing bowl.
  7. Press the OFF/PULSE button and allow the chopping blade to stop revolving before removing cover. Twist cover toward (counterclockwise) to remove.

    Unlock lid first before removing workbowl.
  8. Unlock workbowl by turning it counterclockwise and lift off base.
    Note: Remove workbowl from appliance before removing the chopping blade to prevent food from leaking through the center opening of the workbowl.
  9. Carefully remove the chopping blade.
  10. Unplug appliance when not in use.


  • Watch carefully to avoid over-processing foods.
  • The PULSE button offers the best control.
  • For best results, process foods that are about the same size.
  • Do not overload the workbowl.
  • Never walk away from the processor while it is on.
  • You may use hot but not boiling liquids.
  • Do not process more 3 cups of liquid in the workbowl at any given time.
  • To process meat, use no more than 2 cups of ¾-inch cubes. Process using PULSE in 5-second intervals.
  • Insert a funnel into the feed chute when adding ingredients such as oil, flour and sugar.


  1. Lock workbowl into position (see Illustrations C and D).
  2. Place disc stem onto center post in workbowl.
  3. Carefully place slicing and shredding disc on top of disc stem with appropriate side up (depending on work to be done) (F).

    The slicing and shredding disc is very sharp. Use caution when handling and storing.
  4. Place cover on workbowl and lock into place by rotating cover clockwise (see Illustration H).
  5. Fill feed chute with food. Position food pusher over food (G).
  6. Select the PULSE or ON control; press firmly on food pusher to guide food through feed chute, but do not force it.
    Note: Heavy pressure on the pusher does not speed the work; use the pusher only as a guide. Let the processor do the work.
  7. When finished, press OFF/PULSE and wait for disc to stop rotating before removing cover. Twist cover toward counterclockwise to remove.
    • Make sure the slicing and shredding disc has completely stopped spinning before removing cover from processing bowl.

  • Before slicing fruits and vegetables in the processor, cut a thin slice from the bottom of the food to make it flat.
  • Place the food cut side down in feed chute.
  • Remove seeds and pits before processing.
  • Select foods that are firm and not overripe.
  • Remove the core from hard vegetables such as cabbage.
  • When slicing thinner vegetables, cut them just short of the length of the feed chute and stand them vertically in feed chute so they are solidly packed and cannot turn or tilt.
  • Shred hard cheeses at room temperature.
  • Chill soft and semi-hard cheeses before shredding.
  • After food has been processed, remove the cover and invert on countertop. Remove the slicing and shredding disc before removing the workbowl from the processor. Place the disc on top of the inverted workbowl cover.


  1. Place cover over workbowl with the small latch to the right of the workbowl's handle (H).
  2. Hold feed chute of workbowl cover and rotate cover clockwise until cover locks into place.

    For your protection this appliance has an interlock system. The processor will not operate unless the processing workbowl and cover are properly locked in place.
  3. Insert the food pusher into the feed chute.

Note: The food pusher is used to guide foods through the feed chute and can be removed when adding liquid or additional foods while the processor is running.


This product contains no user-serviceable parts. Refer service to qualified service personnel.

Note: Do not attempt to sharpen the cutting edges of the chopping blade or slicing and shredding disc. They are permanently sharpened at the factory and will be ruined if sharpened.


Note: Before cleaning, be sure unit is turned off and cord is unplugged.

  • Completely disassemble processor parts before washing.
  • Rinse parts immediately after processing for easy cleanup.

    The slicing and shredding disc is very sharp. Use caution when handling and storing.
  • Wipe base and feet with a damp cloth and dry thoroughly. Stubborn spots can be removed by rubbing with a damp cloth and a mild, nonabrasive cleaner. Do not immerse base in liquid.
  • All removable parts can be washed by hand or in a dishwasher. Hand washing of plastic parts will help to maintain the food processor's appearance.
  • If washing by hand, fill workbowl with hot soapy water and rapidly raise and lower the chopping blade or slicing and shredding disc up and down on the center shaft.

    The slicing and shredding disc is very sharp. Use caution when handling and storing.
  • If washing in a dishwasher, place removable parts on top rack only – not in or near utensil basket.
  • Some staining of parts may occur. If so, make a paste of 2 tablespoons of baking soda and 1 tablespoon of water. Apply to stains and let stand overnight. Rinse and dry.
  • Do not use rough scouring pads or cleansers on any plastic or metal parts to clean.
  • Do not allow chopping blade or slicing and shredding disc to soak in water for long periods of time.
  • Remember to clean the internal shaft of the chopping blade; use a baby bottle brush to remove any clogged food particles.
  • If you are having trouble closing the cover over the workbowl, apply a small amount of vegetable oil to the rim of the cover and workbowl. This should make the pieces work smoother when attaching the cover to the workbowl.
