• Never use an adaptor or an extension cord.
• Unplug from outlet when not in use, before putting on or taking off parts, and before cleaning.
• The Shred EmulsifierTM comes equipped with a “Tamper” utensil. This is the only utensil you
should ever use while operating this unit. Using other utensils may damage the unit, cause
possible personal injury and void the warranty.
• To prevent overheating, do not block any ventilation intake openings (underside of base).
• Use on a dry, stable surface.
• When preparing fresh baby food always consult with your physician (pediatrician) before
making any dietary changes. Certain fruits and vegetables are not recommended for infants or
young children due to immature digestive systems, allergies, or other developmental reasons.
• When preparing fresh baby food, to prevent choking, always make sure all fruits and vegetables
are completely liquefied before feeding them to a baby.
• To avoid personal injury: Never remove the Lid while the motor is running. If something is stuck
press the power STOP button, wait for motor to stop running, unplug the unit then remove the
Cap only, insert the Tamper to dislodge stuck food. If food remains stuck, disassemble and
remove the blocked food.

• Always hold the Pitcher handle when operating this unit at high speeds.
• Never put fruits with pits in the Shred EmulsifierTM. Remove pits prior to placing these items
into the Pitcher.
• The maximum Pitcher capacity is 70 ounces. Use significantly less with thicker ingredients.
• When processing foods with a dense consistency such as peanut butter, grains, or doughs, do
not process for more than 30 seconds at a time. Doing so can cause the motor to overheat.
• Always make sure the Lid and E-Z Lock Cap are positioned and secured properly before use.
• Do not let cord come in contact with a stove, other hot surfaces or hang over edge of a table
or counter.
• Close supervision is necessary when any appliance is used by or near children.
• Keep hands and utensils out of container while blending to reduce the risk of severe injury
to persons or damage to the Shred EmulsifierTM. A scraper may be used but must be used
only when the blender is not running (does not apply to an acceptable scraper integral with
the appliance).

Unwind power cord to desired length.
This appliance was designed with built-in power
cord storage beneath the Base. Store the excess
length of cord neatly underneath to avoid accidental
tipping of machine while in use.
WARNING: Do not plug power
cord into electrical outlet until unit
is fully assembled.
Power to unit will not take place unless steps 1–5
in this section are followed carefully.
1. Place the motor Base on a stable, dry surface.
2. Firmly seat the Pitcher onto the Base. The
Pitcher will fit on the Base 4 different ways. The 4
protrusions on the Base should fit into the corners
under the Pitcher. Once seated properly, this will
activate the weighted safety switch.
At this point you may want to place the ingredients
for processing into the unit. Add ingredients into the
Pitcher, soft foods first, harder items last. The E-Z
Lock Cap can be removed during operation to add
additional ingredients or to insert the Tamper. The E-Z
Lock Cap should only be removed at the lowest STIR
speed setting. Always replace E-Z Lock Cap when
you are finished using Tamper or adding ingredients.

Using the Shred EmulsifierTM (continued)
The Tamper
The Tamper is useful when preparing thick or frozen
mixtures. The Tamper can be used while the machine
is running.
1. Remove E-Z Lock Cap leaving the Lid in place.
2. Insert Tamper through the opening in the Lid.
3. Hold the Pitcher handle with one hand, grasp
Tamper with the other hand.
4. Move up and down or in a circular motion to move
contents around the Blade.
Tips for Using the Tamper:
When preparing thick mixtures that don’t circulate
freely, insert the Tamper and move in a circular
motion. This will help remove any air or ingredients
trapped by the Blade. The Lid prevents the Tamper
from making direct contact with the Blade.
NOTE: In the event the motor overheats during
operation it will automatically shut off. To restore
power, allow it to cool down for 35 minutes
before using.
And As A Rule…
• Always remove all stems and large pits such as
peach, mango, apricot, etc. before processing as
these items can damage the Blade and cause the
motor to malfunction.
• Unless otherwise instructed, insert wet ingredients
into the Shred EmulsifierTM first, then the dry
ingredients, then ice if needed.
• Thoroughly wash all fruits and vegetables to remove
any dirt or chemicals.
• Fruits and vegetables process best when they are
fresh and firm.
• Always serve fresh foods immediately. After just a
few seconds they begin to lose vitamin potency.

Making Hot Soups & Sauces
1. Carefully add liquids and solids, avoiding splashing
that could cause personal injury when liquids are hot.
2. Secure Lid and E-Z LOCK Cap on the Pitcher
making sure Cap is in the locked position and the Lid
is firmly snapped onto the Pitcher. Select one of the
Pre-Set functions such as Soup or Puree.
3. Or, If your recipe calls for a specific Time and
Speed, you may set it, then select the Emulsify Button
to begin the process. You may change the Speed or
Stop the unit at any time during the process.
4. Let the machine run until the selected Pre-Set
function is completed or the desired consistency or
temperature has been reached. The average cook
time is 6–8 minutes on speed #8. This will vary
depending on the texture of the ingredients and the
starting temperature.
5. Do not remove Lid until the power is OFF and the
unit has been unplugged. Wait for motor to shut off
and the Blades to completely stop. You may remove
the E-Z Lock cap during the process to use the
Tamper or add additional ingredients. (see page 8)
Pureeing Cooked Soups & Sauces
1. Carefully add hot soup or sauce, avoiding splashing
that could cause personal injury. Secure Lid and E-Z
LOCK Cap on the Pitcher making sure Cap is in the
locked position and the Lid is firmly snapped onto the
pitcher. Use your own Time and Speed settings or
select the Pre-Set Puree function.
Making Hot Soups & Sauces
1. To make ice cream and sorbet, add liquids and
soft ingredients (i.e. soft fruits) first, then frozen
ingredients. In order to make successful frozen treats
with the Shred Emulsifier™ you must always follow
the recommended ratio of ingredients. 1 part liquid to
3–4 parts frozen ingredients. Changing this ratio can
damage the Blades or the motor.
2. Snap the Lid on securely to the Pitcher. Remove
E-Z LOCK Cap from Lid and insert Tamper.
NOTE: You will need to use the Tamper to move
ingredients around quickly. (see page 9)
