This European Standard specifies the safety and hygiene requirements for the design and manufacture of hand-held blenders and whisks used in the commercial and institutional catering, and in food shops. The term "hand-held blenders" is used to refer to the equipment covered by this standard. The machines covered by this standard are hand-held appliances whose tool is intended to process a foodstuff in a container. Tools are designed to crush, mix, mash, emulsify, etc. foodstuffs such as vegetables into soups, mashes, purees, sauces, mayonnaise, cream, dairy products and more generally to process all solid, liquid, pasty or powdery foodstuffs to obtain a homogeneous fluid. These appliances are designed to process up to 100 l of food in one operation. This standard applies to the following machines, according to their weight and to the operating modes required by their intended use: - manually operated machines, using one or both hands, actuated throughout the whole operation (see figure 1); - machines operating resting on the bottom of the container (see figure 2); - machines fixed to or placed on a special support which can be fitted to the container (see figure 3). The support acts as a substitute for the operator for operations that take a long time or for food processing which may present risks of burns (steam or splashes).
