This European standard specifies the safety and hygiene requirements for the design and manufacture of food processors and blenders. It applies to food processors and blenders having a bowl which is stationary while the food is being processed. The total volume of the bowl is less than or equal to 150 l. The machines covered by this standard are intended to carry out various types of operations such as : mincing, mixing, blending, whipping, using a large number of products and raw materials, and which are used in food and catering industries such as restaurants, hotels, coffee shops and pubs. This standard applies when such machines are used under the intended conditions of use as defined in 3.12 of EN 292-1:1991 and stated in the instruction handbook (see 7.1), including cleaning, removal of food blockages, feeding and changing the tools. This standard does not apply to : domestic machines; machinery dedicated to food industrial processing (e.g. pet food, cannery industry, industrial meat processing). Small machines called "shakers" which are dedicated to blending liquid, with an impellor, usually driven from above are excluded.
