Food getting stuck
« on: December 16, 2011, 12:41:00 am »
Every time I cook something like chicken or beef big clumps of it get stuck under the blades.  I mean really stuck!

Anything I can do to avoid this?  Cheers all

Auds, I get the odd piece but not very often.  Place your meat evenly around the blades.  Perhaps stop cooking after a while and give the mix a stir with a spatula.

I sometimes get something stuck. I think the trick is to make the meat largish or small enough to go under the blades. I just stop the machine and stir.

Easy - cook with your butterfly in place.  This stops the chunks of food getting stuch under the blades and also helps to keep softer cuts in one piece.  You can even cook chicken wings this way.  Have fun  ;D

Thanks.  I didn't know about the butterfly.
