Juice Extractor

1.Wash and prepare your selection of fruit and/or vegetables:
  • Fruits with hard or inedible skins such as citrus fruit, melons and kiwi fruit should be peeled before juicing.

  • Pineapple can be juiced with or without the rind removed.

  • Fruits with pits, hard seeds or stones such as nectarines, peaches, mangoes, apricots, plums and cherries must be pitted before juicing.
2.Ensure the Juice Extractor is correctly assembled with the Safety Locking Arm securely locked into the vertical position and the Juice Jug under the spout.
4.Rotate the START | OFF button to the desired speed. A juicing speed guide is provided below and in the instruction book. For your convenience, a juicing speed guide is also printed on the inside of the Pulp Container.
5.Push the START | OFF button. With the motor running, place food into the Feed Chute. Do not load the Feed Chute with food until the motor is running.
6.Using the Food Pusher, gently guide food down the Feed Chute. Do not exert excess pressure. To extract the maximum amount of juice, always push the Food Pusher down slowly.
7.As fruits and vegetables are processed, juice will flow into the Juice Jug and the separated pulp will accumulate in the Pulp Container.
8.Immediately after each use, use the provided nylon brush to thoroughly clean the fine mesh holes of the Filter Basket and rinse the remaining removable parts under running water.

TIP: When juicing herbs, sprouts or leafy green vegetables, either wrap them together to form a bundle or juice them in the middle of a combination of ingredients on low speed to obtain the best extraction. If only juicing herbs or leafy green vegetables, the juice yield will be low due to the nature of centrifugal juicing. It is advised to juice them with a combination of other fruits and vegetables.

Blender

1.Ensure the Blender is correctly assembled with the Safety Locking Arm securely locked into the vertical position.
2.Add food or liquid to the Blender Jug ensuring not to exceed the ‘MAX’ line. When filled at or near the ‘MAX’ line, ensure to place one hand on the Lid to avoid displacement during operation.

NOTE: If any liquid appears around the top of the Motor Base, ensure the Blender is turned off before removing the Blender Jug from the Motor Base. Immediately dry the Motor Base with a soft cloth or paper towel to absorb the liquid and check that the Removable Silicon Gasket and Removable Blade Assembly are correctly assembled.
3.Place the Lid firmly into position on top of the Blender Jug and insert the Inner Lid by turning clockwise until securely locked into position.
5Rotate the START | OFF button to the desired speed. For your convenience, a blending speed guide is printed on the stainless steel collar of the Blender Jug.
6.Push the START | OFF button. If necessary, the 1oz (30ml) Inner Lid can be used to measure and add ingredients while blending. Remove the Inner Lid and add ingredients while on speeds 1/MIX, 2/CHOP or 3/BLEND.
7.Immediately after each use, wash the Blender Jug and all its parts. A quick method is to immediately fill the Blender Jug halfway with warm (not hot) water and add 1-2 drops of dishwashing liquid. Place the Blender Jug on the Motor Base. Select speed 1/MIX and run the Blender for 10-20 seconds. Remove the Blender Jug and discard the soapy water. Rinse the Blender Jug with warm water until clean.

Blending Tips

Additional Blender Settings

Low speedsUse low speeds (1-3 – MIX, CHOP and BLEND) for emulsions such as mayonnaise, dressings and marinades.
High speedsUse high speeds (4-5 – LIQUIFY and PUREE) for puréeing soups and aerating liquids.
SMOOTHIEUse the SMOOTHIE setting for drink making using both liquid and solid ingredients.
ICEUse the ICE setting for ice crushing. Process up to one standard ice cube tray or 12-14 standard ice cubes at one time. The type of ice used will affect the consistency of the crushed ice. To create even, powdery snow for icy drinks and cocktails, use large, solid, dry ice that has come straight from the freezer (22o°F / -5.6o°C, or below). Small, slightly melted or hollow ice may result in a coarser ice, perfect for use as a base for fresh oysters.
PULSEUse the PULSE setting for foods that only require short bursts of power such as chopping nuts.
Inner LidUse the 1-oz (30 ml) Inner Lid to measure and add ingredients while blending. Remove the Inner Lid and add ingredients while on speeds 1/MIX, 2/ CHOP or 3/BLEND. When operating at higher speeds; with a Blender Jug filled at or near the ‘MAX’ line; or with hot contents – stop the Blender before adding ingredients.
Cube foodMake sure all foods are cut into cubes, approximately ¾-inch squares (2 cm) to achieve an even result.
PuréeThick mixtures purée more efficiently if the Blending Jug is ¼ to ½ full.
Liquids before solidsWhen using several ingredients, place liquid ingredients in the Blender Jug before solid ingredients, unless specified in the recipe.
Dense mixturesDo not use the Blender to mix dense, heavy mixtures like dough or mash potatoes. Other, less thick but heavy mixtures may be blended, however depending on the foods being processed, may activate one of the [livman=XXX]motor protection devices[/livman] as a safety precaution. For this reason, we recommend that heavy mixtures are only blended for 30-second intervals before turning off the Blender and stirring the ingredients with a plastic spatula. For normal blending tasks, we recommend only blending for up to 1-minute intervals to prevent over-processing.
Use lidDo not operate the Blender without the Lid in position.
Food onlyDo not place any objects other than food or liquid into the Blender Jug while the motor is running.
No boilingDo not place boiling ingredients into the Blender Jug. Allow ingredients to cool slightly. Select speed 1/MIX initially, then increase to a higher speed if necessary.
No storingDo not use the Blender Jug to store food.
