Turbo Boost Function

Pressing the ‘TURBO’ button while mixing provides an extra burst of power (overriding the speed setting being used). Press the ‘TURBO’ button and hold it down for no more than 30 seconds to avoid overheating.

After the ‘TURBO’ button has been used, always turn the hand mixer off and allow it to cool for a few minutes before using again.

Timer Function

Many recipes will tell you to mix, beat or whisk ingredients together for a certain amount of time. Your hand mixer has a timer function which allows you to see how long you have been mixing.

Once you begin operating the hand mixer, the timer will automatically start counting. Once the hand mixer is switched off, the timer will automatically return to 00:00.
