2) Do not leave the selector in the position

To take the appliance apart, remove the lid, then
remove the dasher from the pin in the centre of the
cylinder. Then remove the cylinder.
To reassemble the appliance, insert the cylinder and
press downwards on the edge with the hands (fig. 1).
Insert the dasher then fit the lid.
Assemble the appliance as described in the chapter
mended (fig. 3) to moisten the aluminium bottom of
the appliance evenly with cotton wool dipped in
alcohol for food use taking care not to pour it onto
the central plastic area (fig. 3). Remember that
alcohol is inflammable. You should therefore per-
form this operation away from flames or hot stoves.
This prevents the formation of ice between the
cylinder and aluminium bottom of the appliance,
making it easier to extract the cylinder when pre-
paration is complete.
Place the ingredients required by the recipe in the
cylinder and fit the lid by turning anticlockwise.
Bear in mind that the cylinder holds a maximum of
600 g. Plug into a suitable mains socket. Make sure
there are no obstacles preventing air from circulating
freely through the grilles at the sides.
Once you have added all the ingredients to the cylin-
der, turn the appliance on by placing the selector in
the position.
Important: never use the appliance without the cylin-
der. Make sure the outside surface of the cylinder is
completely dry before inserting it in the appliance.
Process the ingredients by turning the selector to the
required position.
The selector has 4 different positions:
Dasher rotation (compressor off)
Use this function to mix the ingredients during
the first phase of ice-cream preparation.
Important: you cannot add ingredients to the
cylinder while the dasher is in movement.
Appliance off.
Chilling (compressor operating)
Use this function to add or taste ingredients
during preparation or to stop the dasher to
check the texture of the ice-cream.
If the recipe requires ingredients to be added
(pieces of chocolate, raisins, meringues...),
turn the selector to the position for a maxi-
mum of 1 minute.
Important: you must never leave the appliance
in this position for more than 1 minute.
Leaving it in this position for longer could
seriously damage the dasher rotation mecha-
Combined dasher rotation and chilling (com-
pressor operating)
Use this function to make the ice-cream
through the combined action of the compressor
and the dasher.
When the ice-cream reaches the required tex-
ture, place the selector in the position to turn
the appliance off. Normally each ice-cream
making cycle lasts about 40 minutes.
Continuous functioning beyond this time will
result in excessively hard ice-cream and
serious damage to the dasher rotation mecha-
Important: if you need to work the ingredients with
a whisk (e.g., to froth the egg whites, beat the eggs
and sugar, etc.), you are recommended to prepare
the ingredients in a separate container and then
pour them into the cylinder.

You can then select the function to start
making the ice-cream.
When the ice-cream is ready, turn the appliance
off by placing the selector in the position.
Remove the lid, the dasher and the cylinder, then
use the scoop provided to transfer the ice-cream to
another container.
Then follow the normal ice-cream preparation pro-
cedure, inserting first the cylinder containing the
ingredients, then the dasher and finally the lid.
When the ice-cream is ready, turn the appliance
off by placing the selector in the position, remo-
ve the lid and cylinder and dry the aluminium bot-
tom with a cloth.
Before cleaning, always turn the appliance off by
placing the selector in the position and unplug
the appliance from the mains socket.
Always wash the components of the appliance in
direct contact with the ingredients thoroughly whene-
ver you use the appliance.
Dasher, cylinder and lid can also be washed in the
top basket of a dish washer.
You are recommended to use a short low temperatu-
re programme.
Dry the bottom of the cylinder thoroughly (fig. 2)
before use to avoid ice forming during ice-cream pre-
paration, thus prolonging the ice-cream preparation
The appliance must not be laid on its side or turned
upside down.
Important information for correct disposal of the
product in accordance with EC Directive
At the end of its working life, the product
must not be disposed of as urban waste. It
must be taken to a special local authority
differentiated waste collection centre or to
a dealer providing this service. Disposing
of a household appliance separately avoids possi-
ble negative consequences for the environment and
health deriving from inappropriate disposal and
enables the constituent materials to be recovered to
obtain significant savings in energy and resources.
As a reminder of the need to dispose of household
appliances separately, the product is marked with
a crossed-out wheeled dustbin.
