This is how you proceed with cutting fruit and vegetables
Step one: Open the meat slicer's meat clamp and insert your pre-cut vegetables. Make sure that the vegetable is firmly seated on the meat slicer.
Step Two: For the second step, you need to decide how thick you want the vegetable slices. You can use the index knob to set the thickness manually. If you're not sure how to set up the button, read our instructions.
Step Three: This is where the work actually begins, as you will now turn on the meat slicer. Carefully insert the plug into the socket and turn it on. You will now notice that the blade starts spinning quickly. Therefore it is necessary to follow the safety instructions.
Step four: For the fourth step you need to make the right cutting movements.
If you are using an electric slicer, simply slide the table forward. This way you will notice that the blade moves quickly through the vegetables before you finally see the vegetable slices fall on the left side of the device.
