Leave cooked foods to cool for a while before blending/mixing.
Do not blend food and liquids at a temperature of 80°C or higher.
For fibrous foods (leeks, celery, asparagus, etc) clean the blender shaft regularly during use.
Follow the safety instructions for disassembly and cleaning.
For fruit-based preparations, first cut up the fruit into manageable sized pieces and remove
pips and stones.
