Important Notes Using The Whisk:
The whisk should almost touch the bottom of the mixing bowl to ensure that the ingredients are optimally mixed. For example if whisking 2 egg whites (minimum amount); the whisk should just touch the bottom of the mixing bowl whereas for large amount (8 - 12 whites) the whisk should position higher.

To adjust the height of the whisk:
  1. Remove mains plug.
  2. Press release button and move multi-function arm to position shown in "figure 3" (left).
  3. Insert the whisk into the drive until the whisk locks into position.

  4. Hold whisk in place and loosen nut clock-wise using enclosed key (on the base of the appliance)
  5. Set the whisk to the optimum height by rotating the whisk; turning clockwise to raise and anti-clockwise for lower.
  6. Press release button and move the machine to position shown in "figure 3" (right), check the height and proceed.

Between in order to attach the kneading hook into the drive, first you need to insert the dough deflector (refer to the figure above) before the kneading hook.
