• Use the appliance away from heat sources. Leave at least 8 in (20cm) between the
appliance and walls or objects which could obstruct free air circulation.
• Do not remove the lid while the paddle is moving.
• Make sure ingredients such as milk and cream are cold (refrigerator temperature
41°F/5°C). If ingredients were heated during preparation make sure they are cooled in
the refrigerator before pouring into the machine.
• When raw eggs are to be used for gelato preparation, make sure they are fresh by
breaking each egg separately into a bowl and check that it does not smell bad, the egg
white is dense and sticks to the yolk, and the yolk Is round and swollen.
• IMPORTANT: After turning the appliance off from " " or " ", always wait at least

Appliance off.
Chilling (compressor operating)
This function to add or taste ingredients during preparation or to stop the paddle to check
the texture of the gelato.
If the recipe requires ingredients to be added (pieces of chocolate, raisins, fruit...), turn the
selector to the position for a maximum of 1 minute.

the eggs and sugar, etc.), you are recommended to prepare the ingredients in a separate con-
tainer and then pour them into the bowl.

The appliance comes assembled in the packaging but should be taken apart for cleaning before use. To take
the appliance apart, remove the lid, then remove the paddle from the pin in the center of the bowl. Then
remove the bowl. Wash all parts thoroughly as described below in Cleaning section and then dry. To reas-
semble the appliance, insert the bowl and press downwards on the edge with the hands (fig. 1). Insert the
paddle then fit the lid.
1) Assemble the appliance as described above.
2) You are recommended (fig. 3) to moisten the aluminum bottom of the appliance evenly with cot-
ton wool dipped in alcohol for food use (such as vodka or rum) taking care not to pour it onto
the central plastic area (fig. 3). Remember that alcohol is flammable. You should therefore
perform this operation away from flames or hot stoves. This prevents the formation of ice
between the bowl and aluminum bottom of the appliance, making it easier to extract the bowl
when preparation is complete.
3) Place the ingredients required by the recipe in the bowl (note: some ingredients may need to be
mixed thoroughly before being placed in the bowl) and fit the lid by turning counterclockwise.
Bear in mind that the bowl holds a maximum of 2 3/4 cups (600 g).
4) Plug into a suitable outlet. Make sure there are no obstacles preventing air from circulating
freely through the grilles at the sides.
5) Once you have added all the ingredients to the bowl, turn the appliance on by placing the selec-
tor in the position. Gelato should take 30-40 minutes to reach the desired consistency
and should be checked periodically throughout preparation to ensure the gelato does not get too
hard and freeze the paddle rotation mechanism.
6) Ingredients such as pieces of chocolate, raisins, and nuts should be added separately at the end
of the freezing cycle about 5 minutes before gelato is ready.
Important: never use the appliance without the bowl. Make sure the outside surface of the bowl is
completely dry before inserting it in the appliance.
position. Remove the lid, the paddle and the bowl, then use the scoop provided to transfer the
gelato to another container. If you would like to make multiple batches, clean the paddle and
bowl and completely dry and follow the normal gelato preparation procedure. Do not freeze
gelato directly in stainless steel bowl provided with the machine "C".
Before cleaning, always turn the appliance off by placing the selector in the position and
unplug the appliance from the outlet.
Always wash the components of the appliance in direct contact with the ingredients thoroughly whe-
never you use the appliance.
Paddle , bowl and lid can also be washed in the top rack of a dishwasher.
You are recommended to use a short low temperature program when using the dishwasher.
Dry the bottom of the bowl thoroughly (fig. 2) before use to avoid ice forming during gelato prepa-
ration, thus prolonging the gelato preparation time.
The appliance must not be laid on its side or turned upside down.
