• Do not operate the blender without any ingredients in the blender jug.
  • Do not remove the jug from the motor base while the blender is in use.
  • The jug is designed with ‘fins’ on either side of it; depressions on the outside, creating a fin like ridge on the interior of the jug.
  • On either side of the ‘fins’ are measuring levels, one side being cups and the other being liters.
  • Ensure that the ingredients being blended do not fill the jug to above the MAX line. This can cause displacement of the lid and spraying or spilling of the ingredients being blended.
  • Thicker mixtures purée more efficiently if the jug is filled from 1/4 to 1/2 full.
  • When the blender has been running for 60 seconds continuously, it will automatically turn off as a safety feature to protect the motor.
  • A new speed or function can be chosen while the blender is running. Simply press the new speed and the blender will change operation immediately. However, the same 60 second counter will continue uninterrupted.
  • The PULSE/ICE CRUSH function can be used for crushing ice but also for things like chopping nuts.
  • If the blending time needs to exceed 60 seconds, allow the blender to shut off after the initial 60 second timer, stir the ingredients and scrape down the sides of the jug if needed, then start a second blending cycle.
  • When blending warm ingredients, do not put more then 2 cups in at a time. Once blending has started, another 1 cup can be added slowly by removing the inner lid and pouring the warm ingredients in through the hole.
  • The blender will not knead dough or mash potatoes.
  • Do not blend hot or boiling ingredients. Food must be allowed to cool down to a warm state only before placing in the blender. This is a safeguard to prevent sudden bursts of steam from possibly displacing the lid and spraying out and protects the jug from possible damage.
  • If all of the button surround lights are flashing, the Overload Protection has been engaged. Turn the blender off, unplug it from the wall outlet and remove the jug from the base. Turn the base upside down and allow it to sit for 1 hour. Turn the base back over, remove some of the food from the blender, reset the jug on the base and plug the blender back into the wall. Commence blending.
