My Oskar has two locking teeth on the bottom of the bowl. One at the 3 o'clock position and one at the 9 o'clock position. Grabbing the bowl at the bottom with one hand (using thumb and one finger), I twist clockwise (to the right) about 1/4 inch and the bowl unlocks and lifts off directly. (my unit's spindle doesn't have anything to do with locking the bowl. My unit must be 15 to 20 years old btw)

How do you take bowl off for cleaning


Hope you've worked it out by now, but there are 2 notches at the bottom of the bowl that slot into the base. To remove the bowl, take the lid off and rotate the bowl clockwise so the notches disengage from the base, and simply lift it off/. I assume if you couldn't do this the bowl must have had a lot of gunk stuck in the notches which prevented it from moving - yuk! I put my bowl and lid in the dishwasher - no prob.

I can't get the food bowl off the processing unit. i have removed the cover as the manual says. I have left the blade in as the manual says. The picture looks as thought you should just lift it...


On page 8 of the manual that I will give you the link to: leave the cover in place on the container. Use the cover to help remove the container. Rotate the cover clockwise 180 degrees until the two tabs on the cover meet the two container tabs. Continue to turn the cover, but do not press down as you turn, using your thumb against the tabs until the container is released. Empty the remaining food from the container.

How to disassemble the Sunbeam Oskar processor to wash.


Ours is hard to remove, too. I just hold the base with both hands, then put my left thumb and right index fingers on the parts of the bowl where it attaches to the base. Then push it, if I remember correctly, clockwise. This works far better than gripping the entire bowl.
