Fitting the Jar & Blade Assembly
„ Turn the glass jar (A) upside down, and place on a flat, dry, sturdy surface.
„ Position the rubber seal (B) on the round opening on the bottom of the glass jar.
„ Turn the blade assembly (C) upside down, and place the blade end in the glass jar opening.
TAKE EXTRA CARE WHEN HANDLING BLADES AS THEY ARE VERY SHARP.
„ Secure the rubber seal and blade assembly into position by placing the smaller opening of the locking collar
(D) on top of the blade assembly. To lock the glass jar into place, twist the locking collar in a clockwise
direction until it will go no further and is secured into place.
N.B. The locking collar is fitted with safety interlock switches, which prevent the appliance from working if the
jar unit is not fitted correctly. The appliance will not work unless the locking collar is securely fitted on to the
glass jar. Once assembled turn the assembled jar unit right side up.

„ Fit the lid and cap.
N.B. The lid should always be in place while the unit is switched on.
„ Place the housing base on a flat, dry, sturdy surface and position the complete jar unit on the motor housing
so that the jar markings are facing you and the handle is positioned to one side.
„ Take care when placing the jar unit on the housing base as incorrect positions may damage the interlock
switches.
„ Plug the appliance into a suitable mains outlet and switch on. Your blender is now ready to use.

Using the Blender
„ Place the housing base onto a clean, flat, sturdy surface. Assemble the blender (see ‘Instructions for Use’
section A,B&C) and plug into a suitable mains socket.
„ Add all necessary ingredients to the glass jar and replace the lid. You may add more ingredients during blen-
ding by lifting the measuring cap in the lid and dropping ingredients through the opening in the lid. Always
replace the measuring cap in the lid after adding ingredients, unless blending hot foods.
„ Press the ‘ON/OFF’ button.
„ Select the preferred blending setting.
„ When blending is complete press ‘ON/OFF’ button and remove the plug from the mains.
„ ALWAYS REMEMBER: Do not place hands into blender jar with blender plugged in.
„ Boiling liquid or solid frozen food (with the exception of ice cubes or 1.5cm pieces of frozen fruit) should
never be placed in the blender.
„ Do not place ice, frozen foods or very cold liquids into a blender jar that has come directly from a hot
dishwasher.
„ Do not place very hot liquids or foods into a blender jar which has come directly from the freezer.
Boiling liquids should cool for 5 minutes before being placed in the glass jar.
N.B. Always remove measuring cap when blending hot foods to allow steam to escape.
„ Add liquid ingredients first, then follow with solid ingredients. This will provide more consistent blending and
prevent unnecessary stress on the motor.
„ Occasionally food can stick to sides of the jar or become lodged around the blade assembly. Use a rubber or
plastic spatula to dislodge the food and place in the centre of the jar, over the blade assembly.
„ WARNING: Do not use a spatula until you have turned the blender off.
„ Replace the lid and measuring cap and continue blending, if necessary. Never use metal utensils, as this may
cause damage to the jar or blade assembly.
„ When you have finished blending: Press the ‘ON/OFF’ button and unplug the blender from the mains outlet.
16
IMPORTANT: Do not twist the locking collar from the blender jar when removing jar from the housing base.
Simply lift blender jar from housing base.
„ Do not store food or liquid in the glass jar. Empty and clean thoroughly after use.
„ The blender has an advanced thermal resettable fuse feature. If overloaded, the appliance will shut down to
protect from overheating. If this happens; to reset the unit, unplug from the mains and let it cool for a minimum of 15 minutes. Then reduce the contents and/or clear any jams. Restart appliance as usual.
Blending Techniques
A
Hints and Tips
„ Always add liquid ingredients to the glass jar first, then add remaining ingredients. This will ensure that ingre-
dients are blended consistently.
„ Cut most foods into cubes approximately 1.5-2.5cm to achieve a more uniform result. Cut all cheese into
pieces no larger than 1.5cm.
„ Use the measuring cap in the lid to measure liquid ingredients such as alcohol. Always replace after ingre-
dients have been added (unless processing hot food).
„ When chopping fresh herbs, garlic, onion, zest, breadcrumbs, nuts, spices etc make sure the glass jar and cutting assembly are completely dry.
„ If food tends to stick to the sides of the glass jar when blending, pulse in short bursts.
„ Pulses should be short bursts. Space the pulses so the blades stop rotating between pulses.
„ Don’t over-process foods. This appliance will achieve most desired results in seconds, not minutes.
„ When puréeing hot food, e.g. for soup or baby food, strain the solids from the liquid, reserving the liquid.
Place the cooked solids in the jar along with 4-8tbsp liquid. Replace lid firmly, remove the measuring cap and
blend using a pulse action on ‘low’, until the desired consistency is reached.
„ Allow hot foods to cool slightly before blending to prevent steam build-up which may cause the lid to lift up
from the jar. Always remove measuring cap when blending hot food.

For Best Results
Chopping nuts:
Place 100g shelled nuts into the blender jar, replace lid firmly and pulse on ‘High’ until chopped as desired. For
best results chop small amounts, e.g. 100g or less.
Bread, cookie or cracker crumbs:
Break or cut bread, cookies or crackers into pieces, 1.5cm or less in size. For best bread results, use day old
bread, drier bread gives better results. Place bread, cookies or cracker pieces in glass jar, replace lid firmly
and pulse on ‘Low’ to chop and then blend continuously until desired texture of crumbs is achieved. For best
results, process 100g or less at a time.
Crushing ice:
Add up to 8 standard ice cubes to the jar. Replace lid firmly and press the pre-programmed ‘Ice-Crush’ button.
Timer will sound when complete; then turn blender off.
Grating fresh citrus zest:
For best results, ensure the jar and blade assembly are clean and then dry. Using a vegetable peeler, remove
the zest from fruit in strips. Use a sharp knife to remove the bitter white pith from the underside of the zest.
Process no more than the equivalent of 1 medium lemon zest at a time. Cut strips in half, add strips to jar
along with 1 tsp sugar or coarse salt (from recipe). Replace lid firmly and on ‘High’ speed, blend for 15 – 20
seconds.
Baby food:
Combine 50g-100g cooked vegetables, fruit or meat with 3-4 tbsp liquid (water, milk, fruit juice, stock or cooking liquid) in the jar. Set on ‘Purée’ and blend until smooth. Add more liquid as necessary and process until
desired consistency is reached.
19
Grind hard cheese:
Cut cheese into 1.5cm pieces. Remove any hard rind it may have and place in the jar. Replace lid firmly and
pulse on ‘High’ to chop cheese then blend until desired grind is achieved. For best results, do not process more
than 75g cheese at a time.
Grinding Spices:
For best results, ensure the jar and blade assembly are clean and dry. Add 25g-50g spices, seeds or peppercorns to jar. Replace lid firmly and pulse on ‘High’ to break up and then blend continuously until desired
consistency is achieved.
Whipping Cream:
If possible, chill jar and blade assembly for 15 minutes before whipping. Add 275ml double or whipping cream
to the jar. Replace lid firmly and set on ‘High’ and blend until cream is thickened. Take care not to over blend.
Consistency will be thick but not fluffy cream, ideal for serving with desserts or coffee.

Cleaning & Maintenance
„ CAUTION: Handle the blade assembly carefully as the blades are VERY SHARP. Do not attempt to re-
move blades from blade assembly.
„ Always unplug the appliance from the mains outlet before cleaning.
