Component Overview
1. POWER UNIT
This is the main part of the mixer that includes
the electrical controls, the motor assembly,
drive gears, and the control panel. Each unit has
been factory tested to ensure that all internal
components are in proper working order. The
cover must not be removed. There are no
adjustments that can be made and no serviceable
parts within the power unit. All service must be
performed by the Blendtec factory or authorized
service representatives. Removing the cover may
result in damage to the machine and will void the
warranty.
14. TURN THE POWER SWITCH OFF WHEN NOT
IN USE
The power switch (ON/OFF switch) is located at
the front right corner, at the bottom edge of the
machine.
15. AVOID TOUCHING THE BLENDER DRIVE
SOCKET AFTER EXTENSIVE USE
The blender drive socket may become hot after
numerous cycles.
2. POWER SWITCH
The power switch is located on the lower right
corner of the machine (below the control panel).
Power can be immediately turned off using this
switch.
16. CLOSE SUPERVISION IS NECESSARY WHEN
THIS APPLIANCE IS USED BY OR NEAR
CHILDREN OR PERSONS WITH REDUCED
CAPABILITIES. Further, children and persons
with reduced capabilities should not play with the
appliance at any time.
3. LOW SPEED DRIVE
Because of the great variety of options on the
Mix n Blend II™, two drives are required. The low
Speed drive is located on the lower left section of
the machine and operates the mixing attachments
inside the mixing bowl.
17. THE Mix n Blend II™ IS INTENDED FOR HOME
USE ONLY! ANY USE OF THE MACHINE
FOR COMMERCIAL PURPOSES VOIDS ALL
WARRANTIES.
4. HIGH SPEED DRIVE
The high speed drive is located on the upper right
side of the mixer and is used to drive the blender.
18. ALL REMOVABLE PARTS ARE DISHWASHER
SAFE ON TOP RACK ONLY. DISHWASHER
TEMPERATURE SHOULD NOT EXCEED 220°
FAHRENHEIT.
5. CONTROL PANEL
The control panel is used to control all functions
of the Mix n Blend II™. The chart below gives a
brief overview of the button functions:
These precautions are intended to help prevent
personal injury and/or damage to the machine.

7. BOWL
The bowl is also used in all mixing operations.
Rinsing your bowl with a vinegar or baking soda
solution will remove oils from the surface. Avoid
using sharp metal utensils or scouring pads
as they could scratch or damage your bowl.
To attach the bowl to the power unit, turn it
counterclockwise. To release the bowl, turn it
clockwise.
8. BOWL LID
The bowl lid should be placed on the mixer
when kneading large batches of dough. The lid
helps keep the dough mass down so that proper
kneading will occur. The lid opening can be
used for adding ingredients or final amounts of
flour to a dough mixture. Using the lid whenever
operating the mixer will avoid spills or overflow
of ingredients. To attach the lid to the bowl, turn
it counterclockwise. To release the lid, turn it
clockwise.
More on the functionality of the control panel can
be found in the Operating Instructions.
6. DRIVE SHAFT
The drive shaft is used in all mixing operations.
The shaft fits into the low speed drive. To protect
the motor and gear assemblies, the drive shaft has
been designed to be the weakest link as power
is transferred from the motor to the dough hook
or whisk assembly. This built-in, fail-safe design
will prevent serious gear or motor damage from
occurring in the event that rotation of the dough
hook or whisks becomes excessively difficult.
Always adjust all non Mix n Blend II™ bread
recipes by using at least 15% less flour. Most
recipes call for “excess” flour to accommodate
kneading by hand.
9. KNEADING ARM
The kneading arm provides a stationary barrier
which pulls and folds the dough as the dough
hook turns past the kneading arm. The kneading
arm is only used in conjunction with the dough
hook.
10. DOUGH HOOK
The dough hook is made of surgical stainless steel
for long life without tarnishing. DO NOT PLACE
THE DOUGH HOOK ON THE DRIVE SHAFT
UNLESS THE BOWL IS IN PLACE.
The drive shaft is designed to break so as to
protect the motor and gear assembly if too much
flour is added. Foreign objects, such as spoons,
measuring cups, etc., placed or dropped into the
bowl can also break the drive shaft. The drive
shaft is not included in the warranty.
11. MEDIUM WHISK ASSEMBLY
Medium whisks are single wire whisks used for
thicker batters, heavier frosting, and cookie dough.
If the dough cannot be stirred with a spoon, or if
it contains ingredients such as nuts or chocolate
chips, then the dough hook and kneading arm
should be used.
7
french whisks are used for meringue, light frosting,
whipped cream, pourable batters, and mashed
potatoes (potatoes must be thoroughly cooked).
12. FRENCH WHISK ASSEMBLY
French whisks are used for meringues, whipping
cream, mashing potatoes, light frosting, and
pourable batters. DO NOT USE WITH STIFF
BATTERS OR COOKIE DOUGH.
NOTE: Using the french whisks for cookies
will cause the whisk gear to fail and will void
the warranty on that attachment.
13. ACCESSORY RELEASE BUTTON
Attachments can be released from the mixer by
depressing the release button found under the
front left corner.
Medium whisks are used for denser dough, such
as cookies. Medium whisks are designed with a
single loop that lets dough through more easily.
14. BLENDER JAR
The blender jar has a total capacity of nearly two
quarts and has markings for cups and ounces. The
blade is made from high quality stainless steel.
The dough hook is used for heavy doughs and is
always used in conjunction with the kneading arm.
To assemble, place kneading arm over center of
mixing bowl with the arm in the 9 o’clock position.
Place dough hook on top and turn in a clockwise
direction until it engages with drive shaft. Make
sure kneading arm is NOT directly under the lid
opening.
15. BLENDER JAR LID
The lid for the blender jar must be in place any
time the blender is in operation. The blender lid
can be easily removed by grasping one of the
corners and lifting up to release it from the jar.
When blending hot liquids, the vented lid will allow
pressure relief. Be careful not to come in contact
with any steam coming from the clear center lid.
4. Plug unit into outlet and turn on power switch.
Mixer Assembly
For smooth operation and successful food
preparation, please read and become familiar with
these instructions.
1. Insert the drive shaft into the mixer base.
2. Place the bowl over the drive shaft and turn the
bowl counterclockwise.
3. Add the appropriate accessory to the top of the
drive shaft following these precautions:

Operating Instructions
As you begin to use your Mix n Blend II™, you will
quickly learn that its power and double whisk action
will make quick work out of any mixing job. Do not
over-mix your batter. Begin on Speed 3 to blend
ingredients in the order specified by your favorite
recipe. Increase speed as needed.
One of the unique features of Mix n Blend II™ is its
computer controlled “cycles” allowing food and drink
to be prepared automatically. The following blender
and mixer cycles are preprogrammed into Mix n Blend
II™:
MANUAL OPERATIONS
When you first turn on the machine, the default mode
is manual operation. CAUTION: Keep hands clear
of mixer and blender base. Pressing the UP key at
this time will start the machine at Speed 1 and will run
for 5 minutes. Manual mode can be accessed at any
time by pressing the SPEED or TIME buttons.
By pressing either the SPEED and/or TIME buttons
while the machine is in operation, the speed and time
can be adjusted by pressing the Up or Down arrows. If
the mixer is inactive, the speed and time can also be
adjusted in the same manner. (Press the START/STOP
button to start with these settings.)
NOTE: The speed can only be adjusted while the
arrows are flashing around “Speed X”. The time can
only be adjusted while the arrows are flashing around
the time.

the cycle.
AUTO KNEAD FUNCTION
This feature is unique to Blendtec. First, press the
Bowl button. The first mixer cycle to appear is the
Bread cycle. After placing the first set of ingredients
into the mixing bowl, begin the Bread cycle by
pressing the START/STOP button. The Mix n Blend II™
begins the initial mixing of flour, yeast, water, etc.
Add the remaining flour until the dough clings to the
dough hooks and pulls away from the sides of the
bowl. This initial mixing period should take between 3
and 4 minutes.
IMPORTANT! Stop machine when dough pulls
away from sides of bowl. Do not knead past this
point. Due to the varying moisture content of the
flour, the exact amount of flour needed will vary with
every batch of bread made. For excellent, consistent
bread, keep the initial mixing period from 3 to 4
minutes. Answering the phone or becoming otherwise
distracted during this time can unduly lengthen the
total mixing time and potentially over-knead your
bread.
Next push the Auto Knead button to initiate the
Auto Knead function. Be sure to follow your recipe,
remembering that the Mix n Blend II™ uses at least
15% less flour than recommended in standard bread
recipes. DO NOT ADD TOO MUCH FLOUR!
The Mix n Blend II™ now takes over developing the
gluten. It will knead until the gluten is fully developed
10
and will stop automatically. This process takes
approximately two to three minutes.

bowl and vice versa!
Cleaning Instructions
The Mix n Blend II™ is as easy to clean as it is to use.
Before cleaning make sure the main power switch is
turned off and the mixer is unplugged.
POWER UNIT
Always keep the power unit far away from water.
Wipe the power unit off with a soft cloth.
MIXER ACCESSORIES
Do not use harsh abrasives on any parts. Wash parts
by hand with warm, soapy water or place on the top
rack of a dishwasher. Dishwasher temperatures should
not exceed 220 degrees Fahrenheit.
BLENDER JAR
For best results, do not wash blender jar in
dishwasher. After use, blend one drop of dish soap
with 1 to 2 cups of water for a few seconds. Rinse
out and dry shaft and seals on bottom of jar. Allow
jar to air dry in upright position. Keep metal shaft on
blender jar dry after cleaning. Keep bottom of blender
jar as dry as possible.
Mixer Recipes
To help you get started with your Mix n Blend II™,
we’ve included some basic recipes on the following
pages. These recipes have been kitchen tested in the
Mix n Blend II™ mixer. Our suggestion would be to test
and try your favorite recipes.
NOTE ABOUT YEAST
The recipes in this instruction booklet use rapid or
instant yeast. We recommend Fermipan® Instant
Yeast available either from Blendtec or from a bakery
supply store in your area. If you are not able to use
the rapid or instant yeast you will need to let the
dough rise once before you form the loaves.
TIPS FOR MAKING BREAD
1. Use instant yeast.
2. Put dough into pan seam side down.
3. Use medium size pans or smaller. Bread tends to
fall with large size pans.
4. Form bread dough into loaves as quickly as
possible, as yeast starts acting quickly.
5. When making fancy breads, line the baking sheet
with parchment paper. This makes cleanup easier
and eliminates the need to grease the baking
sheet.
6. Allow dough to rise until ALMOST double in size.
11
The dough will continue to rise when it is baking.
7. If dough rises too much in the pans, punch it down
and re-shape loaves. Allow dough to rise again
before baking.
8. To give bread a softer crust, brush the top with
butter or shortening after cooling for five minutes.
To give bread a shiny look, brush top with egg
whites or whipped egg after baking. Return to the
oven for two or three minutes to cook the glaze.
9. A preheated oven provides a stable temperature
which will bake bread evenly and prevent bottom
from burning.
10. If bread crust is too hard, place bread in a plastic
bag while slightly warm to soften the crust.
11. Baking times will vary depending on size of the
loaf and temperature of the oven.
12. If using honey as a sweetener, measure vegetable
oil first and use same cup to measure honey. It
will slip right out.
13. Use temperature probe in microwave to heat water
to just the right temperature (about 110° F, very
warm but not too hot to kill the yeast).
14. If you have problems with the bread, check water
temperature. Next, check yeast to be sure it is
alive. (Put yeast in 1/2 cup of warm water with a
dash of sugar. After approximately 5 minutes it
should be foamy and bubbly.)
15. We recommend using at least 3 cups of liquid
when making bread.
16. Dough can always be frozen and used later.
17. Keep initial mixing of bread ingredients within a
period of 3 to 4 minutes. Long delays may cause
over-kneading.
18. If bread is still rising too much or too little, contact
your local county extension agency for information
on the amount of yeast needed in your area. This
would especially apply to bread making at high
altitudes.
19. If you wish to freeze bread, cool thoroughly then
put in a plastic bread sack and secure tightly.
Freeze loaf whole. If you slice the bread before
freezing, more surface area is open to frost. Thaw
at room temperature overnight.
WHOLE WHEAT BREAD
LARGE BATCH (7-12 LOAVES)
7 cups warm water
¾ cups sugar or honey
4 tsp salt
½ cup vegetable oil
16 to18 cups flour
4 Tbsp instant yeast
¾ cup vital wheat gluten
MEDIUM BATCH (5-8 LOAVES)
5 cups warm water
½ cup sugar or honey
1 Tbsp salt
⅓ cup vegetable oil
11 to 13 cups flour
3 Tbsp yeast
½ cup vital wheat gluten
SMALL BATCH (3-5 LOAVES)
3 cups warm water
⅓ cup sugar or honey
2 tsp salt
⅓ cup vegetable oil
6 to 8 cups flour
2 Tbsp yeast
¼ cup vital wheat gluten
Combine water, sweetener, salt, and oil in mixing bowl.
Select the Bread cycle under the mixer menu and
12
press START/STOP. While the mixer is operating add
a partial amount of flour according to recipe size: 7
cups for large batch, 5 for medium, and 3 for small.
Continue mixing for an additional 30 seconds. Add
the yeast and lock the lid on the bowl.
Gradually add the remaining amount of flour until the
dough clings to the dough hooks and stops sticking to
the sides of the mixing bowl. This indicates that there
is sufficient flour incorporated into the dough. This
initial mixing lasts approximately 3-4 minutes.
When dough pulls away from the sides of the bowl,
stop adding flour, and press the Auto Knead button.
The Mix n Blend II™ will now mix the dough until the
bread reaches its peak of gluten development. It will
then shut off automatically. The dough is now ready
to form into loaves.
When using instant yeast, there is no need to let the
dough rise before forming into loaves.
Put 2 to 3 tablespoons of oil on a clean counter. With
oiled hands, remove dough hook and kneading arm
and empty dough out onto counter.
Form dough into loaves. Roll each loaf in oil and place
in pans. Rolling the dough in the oil keeps it from
sticking to the pan and keeps the top of the bread
moist as it is rising.
Allow loaves to rise in a warm oven or on a warm
counter away from drafts.
For oven rising: Set oven to 150 degrees Fahrenheit
for a few minutes to take the chill off, turn off and put
the bread in to rise. If the oven is too hot, the bread
will rise too fast and cause a hollow area at the top of
the loaf.
Allow bread to rise until it is almost double in size. If
loaves are in the oven, remove them before preheating
the oven. (For a thicker crust, the loaves may stay in
the oven while it is preheating.)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Bake for 15-20 minutes in 3” x 5” pans or 20-25
minutes in 5” x 9” pans.
Bread is done when the top crust is nicely browned.
Remove one of the loaves from the oven and take
it out of the pan to check the bottom crust. If it is
too light, return to the oven and bake for five more
minutes. Remove loaves from pans and cool on a wire
rack.
WHITE BREAD

and continue mixing on Speed 5. Gradually add
remaining flour until dough clears the sides of the
bowl. Stop adding flour and press the Auto Knead
button.
Spread 2-3 tablespoons of vegetable oil on the
counter. Empty dough onto the oiled counter and let
rest for five minutes.
Divide dough into two pieces. Roll the first piece
into a rectangle 15” x 18”. The dough should be
about ⅜” - ½” thick. Brush dough with 2 tablespoons
softened butter or margarine and sprinkle with ½ cup
cinnamon/sugar mixture.
2 cups powdered sugar
3 Tbsp butter or margarine, softened
½ tsp vanilla or almond flavoring
3 to 4 Tbsp milk or cream
Mix with french whisks on Speed 3 for 30 seconds.

FROSTING
NOTE: It is important to thoroughly remove any
vegetable oil or grease which may be coating the bowl
from previous recipes. Wash the bowl, the whisk, and
the spatula you will be using with hot soapy water.
Rinse well with hot water. You may add 1 teaspoon
vinegar or lemon juice to the rinse water. The acid will
cut the grease.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Whip the egg whites and cream of tartar on Speed 9
until stiff – but not dry. The meringue should stand
14
in peaks. Add vanilla and mix on Speed 3 until vanilla
is blended into meringue mixture. Do not over-mix
at this stage. Spread meringue on pie, forming
small peaks with the back of a spoon. Bake at 350
degrees Fahrenheit for 10-15 minutes depending on
the thickness of the meringue. Meringue should be
golden brown when baked correctly.

CRUSHED ICE (SNOW CONES)
TIPS FOR COOKIE DOUGH
Here are some suggestions if the dough looks and
tastes fine but then spreads paper thin while cooking:
1. Some shortening has a higher percentage of water
and causes the cookies to spread too thin while
baking.
2. Placing cookie dough on a warm cookie sheet will
cause the uncooked cookie dough to spread while
baking.
3. Check the expiration date on your baking powder
to make sure it is current.

BLENDER TIPS
Blended fruit drinks are as nutritious as they are
easy. Use your imagination to come up with your own
specialty drinks. Try any of your favorite fruits alone
or in combination. Using frozen fruit makes the drink
thicker and more like a shake.
Blend all ingredients with the Smoothie or Milkshake
cycles, or use the Pulse button until smooth and
frothy. Add more fruit juice or water if too thick.
Frozen bananas especially help make the shake
thicker and sweeter.
Another variation is to add milk or yogurt instead of
fruit juice.
Remove overripe bananas from their peel and freeze
until ready to use.
Milling Grains: The blender will grind all grains,
however, it is not a mill. It is designed to do 1 or 2
cups of grain. If you need a larger amount of grain
for flour we recommend that you use the Blendtec
Kitchen Mill™ which will mill one pound of flour per
minute. For more information visit blendtec.com
TROUBLESHOOTING
1. If you experience a problem with the blender,
remove jar from base and try to twist the jar shaft.
If the blade will not turn freely the blender jar is
“frozen up” and will need to be replaced.
2. If you feel your bread dough is under-kneaded,
continue at Speed 5 until you feel the dough is
adequately kneaded.
3. If the drive shaft breaks while in the Auto Knead
function, too much flour was added to the amount
of liquid before pressing Auto Knead. Remember
to adjust your recipe by using at least 15% less
flour. Less flour results in better bread. The drive shaft is not
covered by warranty.
