The spatula is the only accessory you may use to mix or stir ingredients in the mixing bowl while the motor is running (through the lid hole).
Insert it from above into the bowl through the hole in the mixing bowl lid. The safety disk ensures that the spatula is not caught by the mixing knife. This means that you can use the spatula during cooking, stirring, and chopping.
You can remove the hot simmering basket from the mixing bowl using the hook on the spatula. Place the hook of the spatula into the notch of the simmering basket.
The spatula may be used to remove food from the mixing bowl after cooking. Doing that, consider that the spatula may come in contact with the sharp blades of the mixing knife and get damaged.
To avoid that, keep in mind to scrub the food from the mixing bowl, rotating the spatula clockwise. In that way, you will minimize the chance that the spatula comes in contact with the cutting part of the knife.
1. Make sure that the hook is securely locked into place.
2. Remove the simmering basket from the mixing bowl using the handle of the spatula. You can then transfer the simmering basket to the sink to allow any water to drain away.
3. You can remove the spatula by releasing the hook from the notch.
