In order to simplify cleaning the tray is placed in the bottom of the machine base, which is then kept free from the product that is being prepared. When the preparation is complete, simply remove the stainless steel tray from the machine and clean it in the dishwasher. The need for cleaning the machine base by hand is thus minimised, all for the best hygiene.
The tray is always used when preparing products using the Dicing Grid or Potato Chip Grid. This is also recommended when preparing products using other cutting tools.
