Starfrit 5-Speed Hand Mixer 3

  • Unplug the hand mixer and set the speed variable control to 0.
  • Firmly push beaters inside the openings until they click into place. (See image above)
  • Ensure that the beaters are fully inserted before using the mixer.

Inserting dough hooks: 

  • Unplug the hand mixer and set the speed variable control to 0.
  • Insert a dough hook with a collar on the right side which has a larger opening. (See image above)
  • Firmly push dough hooks in until they click into place. Insert the dough hook without a collar on the left side which has a smaller opening. Ensure that dough hooks are fully inserted before using the mixer.
    NOTE:
    Dough hooks must be inserted into the correct side and are not interchangeable.

TO USE:

  1. Ensure the speed variable control on the hand mixer is set to the 0 position.
  2. Insert beaters or dough hooks according to the section to assemble.
    NOTE:
    Ensure the beaters or dough hooks are firmly positioned before operating.
  3. Plug the appliance into a standard 120-volt AC electrical outlet.
  4. Add the ingredients into a bowl, hold the mixer handle, and position the beaters or dough hooks in the center where the food will be mixed.
  5. Set the speed variable control to the lowest speed to start mixing. Gradually increase the speed variable control from lower to higher speed until the desired speed. The speed variable control includes speeds 1 through 5 with a Turbo function. The mixer will run at the highest speed when pressing the Turbo button. (See mixing guide and turbo function)
    NOTE:
    Keep the beaters or dough hooks always immersed in the mixture to avoid splashing the mixture from the spinning beaters or dough hooks.
  6. Guide the beaters or dough hooks in constant motion circling the circumference of the bowl and through the center to incorporate all ingredients. If necessary, scrape the sides or bottom of the bowl using a utensil, and ensure that the speed variable control is at 0. The hand mixer can be placed vertically and stay still because of its self-stand design.Starfrit 5-Speed Hand Mixer 4
  7. When mixing is complete, set the speed variable control switch to the O position. Remove the power cord from the outlet.
  8. Remove the beaters or dough hooks by pressing the RELEASE button. The beaters or dough hooks will be released automatically. Do not force the beaters or dough hooks out of openings.

NOTE:
Use a spatula to remove the mixture from the beaters or dough hooks.

BEATERS
Beater attachments can be used for all mixing and whipping tasks: Blend, stir, mix, beat, and whip. The beaters allow thorough and fast mixing results. (See mixing guide for more details)

MIXING GUIDE
Use the following guide for speed selections. The range of foods that can be mixed with a hand mixer is quite extensive. To prevent splattering, start mixing at a slower speed until the ingredients begin combining, and gradually increase the speed range for the required task.

Low speeds are designed for hard ingredients. Harder ingredients will be well incorporated in your mixture when blending slowly. Higher speeds are designed for more heavy liquid ingredients such as eggs or heavy cream. The ingredients will mix and blend. Please note that speed selection may vary slightly depending on your recipe.

NOTE:
The beaters are not designed for mixing and kneading bread dough.

DOUGH HOOKS
The dough hooks will allow you to save time and effort to knead dough. They can be used to help you prepare your favorite pizza dough, quick bread, and cookie dough. Begin by mixing dry ingredients at low speeds (1-2) and gradually add wet ingredients.

Once dry and wet ingredients are combined, slowly increase speed and add water again until ingredients form a lump. The final result should feel smooth and elastic. Some brands of flour absorb more liquid than others, so additional amounts of liquid may need to be added if the dough is not the right consistency.

NOTE:
Only use dough hooks for kneading.

TURBO FUNCTION
The Turbo function allows you to increase the mixing speed to the maximum power level from any setting. When you feel the hand mixer slowing down or straining in tough mixing tasks (such as mixing cookie dough), press the Turbo button.  As soon as the Turbo button is released the hand mixer will return to the pre-selected speed.

REMOVING BEATERS & DOUGH HOOKS
Once mixing is completed turn the speed variable control to 0 raise beaters or dough hooks slowly and unplug the appliance. To remove the beaters or dough hooks position the mixer over a bowl or sink and press the Release button. The beaters or dough hooks will drop out of their openings for easy cleaning.

PREPARATION TIPS
To mix with ease, refrigerated ingredients such as butter and eggs should be at room temperature. To eliminate the possibility of shells in your recipe; break eggs into separate containers first, then add to the mixture.

CLEANING TIPS:

WARNING:
Ensure the appliance is unplugged from the electrical outlet and allow it to cool down completely before handling or cleaning it.

  1. Remove beaters or dough hooks from the hand mixer and wash in hot soapy water or the dishwasher. NOTE: Do not allow the beaters and dough hooks to soak in water for an extended period, as this may damage them prematurely.
  2. Make sure accessories are dried thoroughly.
  3. The body of the hand mixer can be cleaned with a damp cloth. Never immerse the body of the hand mixer in water.
    NOTE:
    Do not use abrasive scouring pads or cleaners when cleaning the beaters/dough hooks as these may scratch the surface.
