I have been given a Tefal Double Force which does everything. The trouble is it has no instructions, only numbered pictures of the various tools. If it was a very simple machine with only 3 or 4 functions like my old one it would be easy to work out what each tool does.This one however has a multiplicity of tools and blades.I have tried everywhere online to find instructions but there are none. I have even looked up other makes and models to see if they have instructions and they do. Tefal's helpline were useless - a young lad telling me what I already knew. Has anybody got this Tefal machine and could help me with instructions.

Have you tried YouTube? My son says everything is there! Alternatively try rewording your question, hope you find an answer.

I have had a quick Goog and you can download a manual in your choice of language on this page. I don't know if it will have more info than is in your leaflet, but it is worth a look. There are also a number of videos on Youtube.

Currys stock them. If you can't get any help on line, go into one of their stores and look at the instructions.
If it's anything like our local Currys not one member of staff will come near you grin

Many things come without instruction booklets these days - well done for saving trees! All instructions, at least for things that are still in production, are on line. And, as Cherry says, a lot of things are demonstrated on Youtube, which is much better than complicated, or badly translated instructions.

Funny you mention this, but in my youth I happened to have the food processor instructions tattooed on my left leg. If you would be so kind as to provide your email address or Skype username, I will send you a few photographs, or even better read out to you over Skype. There are over 34 pages of instructions, so that gives you an indication as to the size of my leg.

Like you gormanghast, I felt a manual must be out there somewhere, but you are right, there isn't one.

What Tefal flag up on their site as a manual is just pictures and the text at the end is just one paragraph repeated in about 50 different languages.

Your best bet is YouTube.

You Tube has several demonstrations of people using it - here is one of them youtu.be/sHtSLuT9C5w

This reminds me. I am on the Fodmap diet so lots of drinks are off limits. Trying to think of something refreshing I decided to make a delicious smoothie.

Put all ingredients in the jug of my food processor and whizzed. Great...then tried to release the jug from the processor and it wouldn't budge. Gave a good strong twist and to my horror the top of jug came away from the bottom (didn’t know they came apart) and smoothie poured all over the processor, worktop and floor. What a mess, I had to rinse the processor under the tap, but luckily it still works.

I never got to drink any 😣

Everyone online seems to agree about the manual, but a couple of questions on specific points, with answers, are online at www.productreview.com.au/listings/tefal-double-force/q-and-
I second other suggestions to look online for anything at all about the macine - reviews, recipe videos etc - and use all the hints you can find. Then you'll just have to experiment!
