IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS
When using an electrical appliance, basic safety precautions should
always be followed, including the following:
15. Never leave your blender unattended while running.
1. READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USING.
16. When blending HOT liquids, remove measured pour lid (center
piece of cover) to allow steam to escape.
2. To protect against the risk of electrical shock, do not put motor
base of blender in water or other liquid.
17. Twist on locking ring firmly. Injury can result if moving blades
accidentally become exposed.
3. Close supervision is necessary when any appliance is used by or
near children.
18. Do not use an extension cord with this unit. Doing so may
result in fire, electrical shock, or personal injury.
4. Unplug from outlet when not in use, before putting on or taking off
parts, and before cleaning or removing contents from blender jar.
Never put hands into the blender jar or container, or handle the
blades with appliance plugged in.
5. Avoid contact with moving parts.
6. Do not operate any appliance with a damaged cord or plug or
after the appliance malfunctions, or is dropped or damaged in any
manner. Return appliance to nearest Cuisinart service facility for
examination, repair, and/or mechanical or electrical adjustment.
7. The use of attachments, including canning or ordinary jars, not
recommended or sold by Cuisinart may cause fire, electrical shock,
or risk of injury to persons.
8. Do not use outdoors.
9. Do not let cord hang over edge of counter or table or touch hot
surfaces.
10. Keep hands and utensils out of jar while blending, to reduce
the risk of severe injury to persons or damage to blender itself.
A rubber or plastic spatula may be used but must be used only
when the blender is turned OFF.
11. When blender is in ON mode, and LED lights are glowing, do
not touch cutting assembly, interfere with blade movement, or
remove blender jar cover. Accidentally touching a speed button
may activate the blender.
12. BLADES ARE SHARP. HANDLE CAREFULLY.
13. To reduce the risk of injury, never place cutting assembly on base
unless the blender jar is properly attached.
2
14. Always operate blender with the cover in place.
Regarding your cord set: A longer cord has been provided so
that you will have flexibility in positioning your Cuisinart® Supreme
Super 600™ Blender near an electrical outlet. Exercise care when
using the longer cord, to avoid entangling or tripping over the cord.
The longer cord should be arranged so that it will not drape over
the counter or tabletop, where it can be pulled on by children or
tripped over. Excess cord should be stored in the cord storage
area at the back of the blender base to avoid injury caused by the
longer cord.
19. Wash the blender jar, cutting assembly, locking ring, and cover
before first use.
20. WARNING: TO REDUCE THE RISK OF ELECTRICAL SHOCK
OR FIRE, DO NOT REMOVE THE BASE PANEL. NO USER
SERVICEABLE PARTS ARE INSIDE. REPAIR SHOULD BE
DONE ONLY BY AUTHORIZED PERSONNEL.
21. WARNING: FLASHING LIGHT INDICATES READY TO
OPERATE. DO NOT TOUCH BLADES.
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
FOR HOUSEHOLD USE ONLY
NOTICE
This appliance has a polarized plug (one prong is wider than the other).
To reduce the risk of electric shock, this plug will fit into a polarized
outlet only one way. If the plug does not fit fully into the outlet, reverse
the plug. If it still does not fit, contact a qualified electrician. Do not
modify the plug in any way.

Note: To remove blender jar cover, lift edge of cover upwards. Lifting
measured pour lid will not remove cover.
3. To start blending: press the “On” button. The red “On” LED light
will flash, indicating that the blender is turned on but no speed has
been selected.
4. Press the desired blending speed: both the “On” indicator light
and the activated speed indicator light will glow. The blender will
now be functioning at the desired speed. It is possible to switch
speeds without pressing the “Off” button, by simply pushing the
next desired speed button.
5. To stop the blending process: re-press the activated speed
button. The blending process will stop. The red “On” indicator light
will continue to flash to let you know that the blender is still on and
can be reactivated by pushing the desired speed button. The
blender can be completely deactivated and stopped at any speed
by pushing the “Off” button. You will need to press the “On” button
again to continue blending.
6. Pulse mode: while the blender is turned on, you can create a burst
of power for quick, efficient blending, by activating the pulse
function. To do so, first push the “Pulse” button, which will cause
the pulse indicator light to flash. Next, push and release the desired
speed button. Repeat as desired. You determine the duration of
each pulse. While pulsing, all indicator lights (the on, the pulse, and
the desired speed) will glow. The pulse function can be used to
break apart larger pieces of food or to control the texture of food
when chopping. The pulse function is also effective in starting the
blending process when you do not want continuous power, or
when processing items which do not require an extended amount
of blending.

7. To crush ice: the Supreme Super 600TM Blender motor is strong
enough to crush ice without liquid at any speed; however, for your
convenience, we have preset the best speed for ice crushing. To
give you greater control, the ice crush function automatically
operates as a pulse function. To crush ice, place ice cubes in the
blender jar, and place the cover and the measured pour lid on the
blender jar. Press the “On” button. Press the “Ice Crush” button in
short pulses until ice is crushed to desired consistency. See the
Recipe Tips and Hints for more details.
8. To dislodge food: use a rubber or plastic spatula to help remove
food lodged around the cutting assembly. Do not use spatula
until you have turned the blender off. Replace the cover and
measured pour lid and continue blending, if necessary. Make sure
spatula is not inside the blender jar before blending.
9. When finished blending: press the “Off” button and unplug the
blender from the electrical outlet. Never remove the blender jar
from the motor base until the blender is off. Do not twist locking
ring from blender jar when removing jar from motor base. Simply
lift blender jar from motor base. Do not place hands into blender
jar with blender plugged in.
CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE
Always unplug your Cuisinart® Supreme Super 600™ Blender from the
electrical outlet before cleaning. The blender is made of corrosionresistant parts which are easy to clean. Before first use and after every
use, clean each part thoroughly. Periodically check all parts before
reassembly. If any part is damaged or blender jar is chipped or
cracked, DO NOT USE BLENDER.
Remove the blender jar from the motor base by lifting straight up and
away. Twist off the locking ring by turning counterclockwise. Remove
the cutting assembly and rubber gasket. Wash in warm soapy water,
rinse, and dry thoroughly.
Place the locking ring in the upper rack of the dishwasher or wash in
warm water.
CAUTION: Handle the cutting assembly carefully. It is SHARP and may
cause injury. Do not attempt to remove blades from cutting assembly.
Remove the blender jar cover and the measured pour lid. Wash in
warm, soapy water; rinse and dry thoroughly, or place in upper rack of
dishwasher. The blender jar must be washed in warm, soapy water and
rinsed and dried thoroughly. The blender jar can also be placed upside
down in dishwasher.
•
Always remove locking ring, cutting assembly, and rubber gasket
before cleaning.
•
When scraping the blender jar with a spatula, remove the food from
the sides of the blender jar and place food in the center of the
blender jar, over the cutting assembly.
Finally, wipe the motor base clean with a damp cloth to remove any
residue, and dry thoroughly. Never submerge the motor base in water
or other liquid, or place in a dishwasher.
•
When chopping fresh herbs, garlic, onion, zest, bread crumbs,
nuts, spices, etc, make sure the blender jar and cutting assembly
are completely dry.
Tip: You may wish to clean your blender cutting assembly as follows:
Squirt a small amount of dishwashing liquid into assembled blender jar
and fill halfway with warm water. Select Mix and run for 30 seconds, or
as needed. Repeat, using clean tap water. Empty blender jar and
carefully disassemble parts. Wash cutting assembly, gasket and
locking ring in warm, soapy water. Rinse and dry all parts thoroughly.
•
Pulses should be short bursts. Space the pulses so the blades stop
rotating between pulses. If food tends to stick to the sides of the
blender jar when blending, pulse in short bursts.
DOs AND DON’Ts WHEN USING
YOUR BLENDER
DON’T:
•
Don’t store food or liquids in your blender jar.
•
Don’t place cutting assembly and locking ring onto motor base
without the blender jar attached.

CUISINART® SUPREME SUPER 600™ BLENDER
BLENDING TIPS & HINTS
The simple recipes that follow include some old Cuisinart favorites as
well as some creative combinations that are sure to please your friends
and family. Thanks to the superior ice crushing power of the Cuisinart®
Supreme Super 600™ Blender, you’ll also be able to make delicious
frozen drinks.
Chopping Nuts: Place ½ cup shelled nuts in the blender jar and cover
blender. Select Chop and pulse until desired chop is achieved. Pulse
fewer times for coarsely chopped nuts. For best results process small
amounts, ½ cup or less.
Bread, Cookie or Cracker Crumbs: Break or cut bread, cookies or
crackers into pieces ½ inch or less in size. For best bread results, use
day-old bread (drier bread works best). Place bread, cookie or cracker
pieces in blender jar. Select Purée and pulse to chop, then blend continuously until desired texture of crumbs is achieved. For best results process
1 cup or less at a time.
Crushing Ice: Add up to 10 standard ice cubes to the blender jar. Cover.
Press the Ice Crush button, using short bursts, 10 times, or until cubes
are the consistency of snow. Press STOP button. Pulse fewer times if
coarsely chopped ice is desired.
Grating Fresh Citrus Zest: For best results, blender jar and cutting
assembly must be clean and dry. Remove zest from fruit in strips using a
vegetable peeler; use a sharp knife to remove the bitter white pith from
the underside of the zest. Cut strips in half. Process no more than 8 strips
at a time (zest of 1 medium lemon). Add strips and 1 or more teaspoons of
sugar or coarse salt (from recipe) to the blender jar. Cover blender jar.
Select Purée; blend for 15–20 seconds. Press STOP button.
Baby Food: Combine ½ cup cooked unseasoned or lightly seasoned
vegetables, fruit or meat from the family meal with 3–4 tablespoons liquid
(water, milk, fruit juice, broth, or cooking liquid) in the blender jar. Select
Liquefy. Blend for 15–20 seconds until a smooth purée is reached. Add
more liquid as necessary and process further until desired texture is
reached. For “junior” type foods, select Purée and use the pulse. Always
consult with your pediatrician/family physician concerning the best foods
for your baby and when to introduce new foods to his/her diet.
Grinding Hard Cheese: Cut cheese into ½-inch pieces; remove all outer
hard rind. Place cheese in blender jar. Select Chop or Mix.
Pulse to chop cheese, 10–12 times, and blend until desired grind is
reached. For best results, grind no more than 3–4 ounces of cheese at
a time.
Whipping Cream: If possible, chill blender jar and cutting assembly in
refrigerator for 15 minutes. Add 1 cup heavy or whipping cream to
blender jar. Cover jar. Select Stir (1-second pulses) 20–30 times until
cream is thickened. (Do not overprocess – bits of butter will begin to
2
appear.) If desired add 1 tablespoon sugar and 1–2 teaspoons of vanilla
or other flavoring. Consistency with be that of a thickened but not fluffy
whipped cream and is most appropriate for topping desserts or coffee
drinks.
GENERAL USAGE TIPS
• Assemble the blender completely before beginning any blending task,
taking care that the gasket has been inserted to prevent leakage.
• Always take care to place lid firmly on blender container before blending.
• Always turn blender off and allow blades to stop completely before
removing the lid or lifting container from blender.
• For “frozen” drinks, chill all ingredients before blending. This includes
liquor, which may even be kept in the freezer if space allows.
• Keep frozen fruit (whole berries, slices, chunks or pieces of other fruits)
on hand to be able to replace ice to make “frozen,” “slushy,” or
“smoothie” type drinks at any time. Using frozen fruit keeps the drink
from tasting watered down.
• Additional ice cubes or pieces of frozen fruit can be added through the
feeder hole in the lid of the blender while the blender is running.
• For best results, cut foods into similar sized pieces, ½–¾ inches
in size.
• If foods do not seem to be blending smoothly, use the pulse to chop,
then blend continuously.
• Allow hot foods to cool slightly before blending.
• When using the Cuisinart® Supreme Super 600™ Blender to purée hot
mixtures such as creamed soups and baby foods, strain the solids from
the liquid, reserving the cooking liquid. Then place the cooked solids in
the blender jar along with ½ to 1 cup of the reserved cooking liquid. Use
the Pulse to chop, then blend until desired consistency/purée is
reached. Blending hot mixtures is often better done in several batches.
• When blending hot foods/liquids, leave the feeder cap off or ajar to
allow steam to be released to prevent the lid from popping up/off.
Cover the lid with a clean dish towel and hold down to prevent it from
lifting up.
• When blending hot foods/liquids, make certain there is sufficient room
for expansion during blending.
• The blender is a perfect tool for creating baby foods and purées for
special needs diets.
• A quick way to clean the blender is to let it clean itself. Add about 2
cups of warm water and a drop of liquid dish soap to the blender jar.
Run the blender for about 30 seconds, until it is clean. Rinse thoroughly
with warm water to remove all soap and allow to air dry.
• Xanthan gum may be added to dressings and marinades to prevent
separation.

teaspoon kosher salt
For the Creamy Mushroom Soup
2
ounces dried porcini mushrooms
2
cups boiling water
4
tablespoons unsalted butter
2
cups sliced leeks (½-inch thick)
1
cup chopped onion (½-inch pieces)
½
cup sliced celery (½-inch thick)
2
cloves garlic, peeled, smashed and cut in half
1
pound sliced mushrooms
1
teaspoon thyme
1⁄
cup dry sherry
3
3 to 4 cups chicken stock or broth
8
ounces russet potato, peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces
1
teaspoon kosher salt
¼
teaspoon ground white pepper
2
tablespoons fresh lemon juice
¼
cup half-and-half or light cream
Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment and drizzle
with half the olive oil. Arrange the mushrooms in a single layer, drizzle
with remaining olive oil and sprinkle with salt. Toss to coat, then arrange
in a single layer again. Place in preheated oven and roast until
mushrooms are browned, crispy and about half their original size. Let
cool and reserve to use as “croutons” for the soup.
Place the dried mushrooms in a heatproof bowl. Cover with boiling water
and let stand until softened, about 20 to 30 minutes. Drain, reserving the
soaking liquid. Pour the soaking liquid through a coffee filter set in a
strainer to remove any impurities and reserve.
Heat the butter in a 5-quart Dutch oven type pan over medium heat. Add
the leeks, onion, celery, and garlic. Cook until tender and translucent,
about 3 to 5 minutes. Add the sliced mushrooms and thyme. Cook over
medium-low heat until mushrooms are tender and have given up most of
their liquid, about 15 to 20 minutes. Stir in the sherry and cook until
reduced to about 1 tablespoon. Add enough chicken stock to the reserve
mushroom soaking liquid to make 5 cups and add to the vegetable
mixture with the potato and salt. Cover loosely and bring to a boil.
Reduce heat to low, and simmer, loosely covered until potato is tender,
about 20 minutes. Stir in pepper and lemon juice. Let stand 5 minutes.
Strain the solids from the liquid, reserving all liquid. Have a large clean
saucepan ready.
Place half the solids in the blender jar with 1½ cups of the liquid. Cover
and blend on Purée until smooth, creamy and homogenous, about 30 to
40 seconds. Transfer to the clean saucepan and repeat with remaining
solids and 1½ cups of the liquid. Combine with puréed mixture in
saucepan. Stir in any remaining liquid, and half-and-half or light cream.
Place over low heat to reheat to serving temperature. Serve hot and
sprinkle with Roasted Mushroom Croutons.

Roasted Beet & Tomato Soup with Tarragon
This is a “slow food” soup. It takes a while, but roasting the beets
and tomatoes concentrates the flavors and color in this vivid ruby red
soup that is scented with just a hint of tarragon. This soup may be

heavy cream if you are feeling indulgent.

Preheat oven to 425°F. Scrub the beets and wrap in a double thickness of
aluminum foil. Place in hot oven and roast until tender when tested with a
knife, about 2 to 2½ hours, depending on the size of the beets. Preheat a
second oven to 300°F. Line a jelly-roll pan with parchment. Cut tomatoes
in half lengthwise and arrange in a single layer on the prepared pan.
Roast tomatoes for 1 hour.
Melt butter in a 5- or 6-quart Dutch oven style stockpot over medium
heat. When melted, add onions, celery, and garlic. Cook, stirring
frequently, until translucent, about 3 to 5 minutes. Stir in tarragon, reduce
heat to low, cover loosely and cook for 10 minutes. Add the reserved
tomato juices and enough chicken stock to make 6 cups of liquid in total
and the cubed potato. Raise the heat to high and bring to a boil. Reduce
heat to low, cover loosely and simmer for 1 hour. Stir in salt and pepper.
Remove from heat and let stand 5 minutes.
Strain the solids from the liquid, and transfer all but 2 cups of the cooking
liquid to a clean pot. Place half the cooked vegetables in the blender jar
with 1 cup of the cooking liquid. Blend on Purée until smooth and
homogenous, about 25 to 30 seconds. Transfer to the pot of cooking
liquid and stir. Repeat with the remaining vegetables and cup of cooking

tablespoons white wine
cup chicken stock or broth
teaspoon fresh lemon juice
teaspoon kosher salt
freshly ground pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 425°F.
Place 2 of the 5 (or half the original amount) peppers on a baking sheet
with 5 cloves of garlic. Roast in preheated oven for 15 minutes. Remove
the garlic cloves and place in a small heatproof bowl. Return baking tray
to oven and continue roasting peppers for an additional 30 minutes,
turning peppers a few times to ensure even browning. When peppers are
charred evenly, place in the bowl with the garlic and cover tightly with
plastic wrap. Let peppers cool and steam to loosen skins, at least 30
minutes. Once cool, peel the skins and remove seeds and discard.
Reserve cleaned peppers with peeled garlic cloves (may store the
peppers and garlic together in plastic food storage bag overnight in
refrigerator). Chop the remaining peppers into 1-inch pieces.
Place the shallot in the food processor attachment bowl fitted with the
chopping blade. Select Liquefy and press Pulse until finely chopped,
about 10 pulses. Reserve. Heat butter and olive oil in a 3-quart sauté pan
over medium heat. Add chopped shallots, sauté for about 2 minutes,

Welsh Rarebit
Also known as “Welsh Rabbit,” this cheese sauce is traditionally
served over toast points or toasted English muffin halves. A slice of
tomato can be placed on the toast first for “high tea” and it can also
be put under the broiler for a few moments. We have also found that
this recipe is delicious served over steamed broccoli or cauliflower, a
baked potato, or it could be tossed with cooked pasta shapes to
make a macaroni and cheese dish.

cups milk
cup unsalted butter, melted
tablespoon fresh chives, finely minced
Place eggs, flour, salt and milk in the blender jar. Blend on Liquefy for
about 30 seconds. Scrape the blender jar well and blend again for

pour in just enough batter to cover the entire surface of the skillet (about
2 to 4 tablespoons). Cook until the edges just start to brown, then turn
the crêpe over and cook on the other side for about 30 seconds. Crêpes
can be made and stacked with a sheet of waxed paper or plastic wrap
between each one. Wrap stack in plastic wrap and refrigerate for up to 1
week until ready to use.
