All users of this appliance must read and understand this instruction guide
before operating or cleaning this appliance.
The cord to this appliance should be plugged into a 120 V AC electrical outlet
only.
If this appliance begins to malfunction during use, immediately release pressure
on either cup (small grinding or tall blending) and unplug the cord.
Do not use or attempt to repair the malfunctioning appliance.
If this appliance falls or accidentally becomes immersed in water,
unplug it immediately. Do not reach into the water!
Do not use this appliance after it has fallen into or becomes immersed in water.
To reduce the risk of injury to persons or property, never use this appliance
in an unstable position.
Do not use this appliance for other than its intended use.
Do not use if either cup (blending cup or grinding) is cracked or chipped.
IMPORTANT! This product is not an ice crusher. Always make sure to add
at least one cup liquid to the processing cup before adding ice or foods
that are frozen solid. Do not overfill. Failure to add enough liquid before
processing may cause the processing cup to break or chip.
NOTES ON THE CORD
The provided short power-supply cord (or detachable power-supply cord) should
be used to reduce the risk resulting from becoming entangled in or tripping over a longer cord.
Do not use an extension cord with this product.
NOTES ON THE PLUG
This appliance has a polarized plug (one blade is wider than the other).
To reduce the risk of electric shock, this plug will fit in 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.
PLASTICIZER WARNING
CAUTION: To prevent Plasticizers from migrating from the finish of the counter top
or table top or other furniture, place NON-PLASTIC coasters or place mats between
the appliance and the finish of the counter top or table top. Failure to do so may cause
the finish to darken; permanent blemishes may occur or stains can appear.
ELECTRIC POWER
If the electrical circuit is overloaded with other appliances, your appliance may not operate
properly. It should be operated on a separate electrical circuit from other appliances.

Carefully unpack the Rocket Blending Set and remove all packaging materials.
Check the contents to ensure that all parts and accessories are present,
and have been received in good condition.
Handle the blending blade and the grinding blade attachments by their collars only.
WARNING: Do not touch blades. Blade attachments are very sharp.
Use extreme care when handling. Failure to do so can result in personal injury.
Wash all lids in warm, soapy water. Rinse and dry thoroughly.
Clean each cup before first use. Fill cup one-quarter full with clean, warm water.
Following the steps outlined in the Operating Instructions, pulse several times using
first the blending blade and then the grinding blade. Rinse thoroughly.
The motor base may be wiped with a damp cloth.

4.
Place the motor base on a flat, clean,
dry countertop or table.
Make sure the unit is unplugged.
The Rocket Blender comes with 2 sizes
of processing cups. Place the food
to be processed into the desired cup:
tall blending cup or small grinding cup.
To assemble for blending, chopping,
or mixing, using the blade’s collar to handle,
place the blending (cross) blade into
the tall blending cup.

8.
To assemble for grinding or whipping,
using the blade’s collar to handle,
place the grinding (flat) blade into the small
grinding cup.
IMPORTANT: Check to make sure the cup ring
is not attached to the blending cup before
assembling the blade. If it is, simply lift off
to remove.
IMPORTANT: In the base of each blade’s collar,
there is a plastic gasket seal that creates
an airtight fit with the Rocket processing cups.
After dishwashing and before each use,
always check to make sure the gasket
is properly in place, as the heat from some
dishwashers may cause the gasket
to become loose.
WARNING: Never operate the Rocket Blender
when the processing cup is empty.
WARNING: Never overfill the processing cup. Do not exceed the MAX line.
Hold the cup (tall or small) firmly in one hand. Use the other hand to tighten
the cup/blade assembly by turning the blade collar clockwise until snug.
Plug the power cord into a 120V AC electrical outlet.
Invert the processing cup/blade assembly. Insert the blade collar into the motor base,
fitting the tabs into the slots on the motor base.
NOTE: The Rocket Blender will not operate unless the 3 locking tabs on the blade collar
are properly fitted into the 3 slots on the motor base.

To process, turn the processing cup (tall or small) clockwise into the motor base
and press down on the top of the cup. The blender will operate until pressure is released.
To pulse, simply press down on the processing cup and release in short bursts.
The motor will stop when pressure is released. Check results and continue to pulse,
if necessary, until the desired consistency is reached.
WARNING: Do not operate the motor continuously for more than 3 minutes at a time.
Allow the motor to rest for 3 minutes before continuing.
When processing is completed, turn the cup counter-clockwise in the base and lift
to remove the cup/blade assembly.
Invert the cup/blade assembly. Hold the cup (tall or small) firmly in one hand.
Use the other hand to turn the blade collar counter-clockwise and remove the blade
from the processing cup.
Add the cup ring to enjoy fresh juice, blended drinks or smoothies immediately.
Press down to fasten the cup ring to any of the blending cups.
Unplug the Rocket Blender when not in use and before cleaning.
FOOD PROCESSING HINTS
•
•
•
WARNING: Do not operate the motor continuously for more than 3 minutes at a time.
Allow motor to rest for 3 minutes before continuing.
Never overfill the processing cup. The maximum capacity of the tall blending cup is 13.5
oz./399 ml. The maximum capacity of the small grinding cup is 6 oz./175 ml.
For best results, solid foods should not be larger than 1-inch pieces. Cut or tear food
into pieces approximately equal in size before processing.
Fasten either shaker lid (small holes or large holes) to either cup
(small grinding or tall blending) to use for cooking or serving.
The large-hole shaker top may be used to serve: grated Parmesan cheese, chocolate,
flavored sugars, or coarse spice blends. Use the small-hole shaker top for finely ground
spices such as nutmeg or cinnamon stick.
GRINDING COFFEE
Preparing, using, and storing freshly-ground coffee is simple with the Rocket blending set.
1. Add coffee beans to the small grinding cup. If desired, add any other flavoring
ingredients, such as cinnamon or vanilla bean.
2. Add the grinding blade.
3. Pulse until coffee beans are the desired texture. The coarser the grind,
the milder the brew. For espresso grind, pulse until the beans are ground to a fine
powder.

Rinse and dry thoroughly.
CAUTION: Never use rough scouring pads or abrasive cleansers on any plastic
or metal parts as the surface may be damaged.
Processing blades, processing cups and lids are all top-rack dishwasher safe.
IMPORTANT: After dishwashing, always check to make sure the gasket seal
in the base of the blade collar is properly in place, as the heat from some dishwashers
may cause them to become loose.
