How to Use

This product is for household use only.

  1. Before first use, you will need to charge the Grater Unit for about 15 hours, typically overnight. Subsequent chargesas needed should be for 12 hours or overnight.
    Note: The Flip-Top Blade Holder and a Blade do not need to be in place in order to charge the Grater Unit. The Holder and desired Blade can be assembled on the Grater Unit just before using.
  2. To charge the Grater Unit, plug the small end of the AC Charger into the Grater Unit and plug the other end into astandard wall outlet.
  3. When fully charged, the Grater Unit will operate for about 20 minutes, depending on the kind of food being grated, shredded or shaved.
    Note: As an example, this is enough power for a family of 4 to each grate about 2 tablespoons of cheese on their pasta for about 4 dinners. This is also more than enough time for grating a larger quantity of cheese for cooking.
  4. For best performance, let the Grater Unit run down completely before recharging it. Recharging the Unit after eachshort use may shorten the life of the nickel-cadmium battery.
  5. Before using the Blades, wash the Blades in sudsy water or in the dishwasher. Dry thoroughly.

To Assemble

  1. Place the Grater Unit on a flat surface, such as a countertop or table. Fit rounded-rod top of the Flip-Top BladeHolder into the long slot at the top of the Grater Unit. Flip up the Holder; it will stay in position to allow a Blade to be placed on the Unit.
  2. Select a Blade. (See "Blade Chart" below) The Blade Eye should always be positioned at the top of the Grater Unit.
  3. Fit the Blade Indentation on the back of the Blade onto the Pin on the Grater Unit (A), then flip down the Holderand snap into place. The Grater is now ready to use.
    How to Use - Assembling the device

Mounting the Wall Hook

  1. Hold the storage bracket against the wall in the desired location. Mark the location of the screw hole.
  2. Set the bracket aside and drill a hole through the mark.
  3. If mounting the unit on drywall or plaster, use a wall anchor. Push the anchor all the way into the drilled hole.
  4. Place the screw through the bracket and into the anchor or wood. Hand twist to secure initially, then tighten with ascrewdriver. Do not over-tighten.
  5. Use the Blade Eye to hang the Grater Unit securely on the Wall Hook.

Grating, Shredding or Shaving Foods with the Device

There are two ways to grate, shred or shave food using the Gizmo™ Grater:

  1. Hold the assembled Grater from behind in either hand, letting the Holder lay comfortably on your hand. Hold thefood to be grated in the other hand resting on the Food Rest located at the bottom of the Flip-Top Blade Holder. Press only one of the "On" Buttons to operate; if you are left-handed, use the right-side Button, if you are righthanded, use the left-side Button. As the Blade moves up and down, simply hold the food in place on the Food Rest and the movement of the Blade will automatically grate, shred or shave the food.

This position is perfect for use at the table, for grating Parmesan cheese directly on top of pasta or Cheddar cheese on tacos, for example.
Note: For best result, lightly hold the food down on the Blade but do not press. Pressing the food down on the blade will result in reduced battery power and reduced shredding, grating or shaving performance.

  1. Place the assembled Grater on a countertop or table, letting the unit rest at the angle created by the Back Rest. Usingone hand, slightly lift up the unit by the Back Rest. You may want to place a piece of waxed paper or a flat dish under the Grater to contain the grated, shredded or shaved food. Hold the food to be grated in the other hand resting on the Food Bar located at the bottom of the Flip-Top Blade Holder. As the Blade moves up and down, simply hold the food steady and the movement of the Blade will automatically grate the food.

This position is ideal when grating a quantity of food, such as grated citrus zest or grated or shredded cheese to be used in a recipe.
When finished grating, shredding or shaving, lightly tap the Food Rest with your fingers to ensure that all the food falls from the inside of the Blade. Use a rubber spatula to remove any food that may remain inside the Blade.

NOTE: The GG200 is equipped with the Fine Grating, the Coarse Grating and the Shaving Blades. The GG100 comes with the Fine Grating Blade only.
