CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE
Always unplug your Cuisinart® PowerEdge™ 700-Watt Blender
from the electrical outlet before cleaning. The blender is made of
corrosion-resistant parts that are easy to clean. Before first use and
after every use, clean each part thoroughly. Periodically check all parts
before reassembly. If any part is damaged or blender jar is chipped or
cracked, DO NOT USE BLENDER.
Remove the blender jar from the motor base by lifting straight up and away.
Invert the jar. Twist off the locking ring by turning counterclockwise.
Remove the cutting assembly and rubber gasket. Wash in warm soapy
water; rinse and dry thoroughly.
Place the locking ring in the upper rack of the dishwasher or wash in
warm water.

cause injury. Do not attempt to remove blades from cutting assembly.
Remove the blender jar cover and the measured pour lid. Wash in warm,
soapy water; rinse and dry thoroughly, or place in upper rack of dishwasher.
The blender jar must be washed in warm, soapy water and rinsed and dried
thoroughly. The blender jar can also be placed upside down in dishwasher.
Finally, wipe the motor base clean with a damp cloth to remove any residue,
and dry thoroughly. Never submerge the motor base in water or other liquid,
or place in a dishwasher.
Tip: You may wish to clean your blender cutting assembly as follows:
Squirt a small amount of dishwashing liquid into assembled blender jar
and fill halfway with warm water. Run on Low for 15 seconds. Repeat, using
clean tap water. Empty blender jar and carefully disassemble parts. Wash
cutting assembly, gasket and locking ring in warm, soapy water. Rinse and
dry all parts thoroughly.
DOs and DON’Ts WHEN USING YOUR BLENDER
Do:
• Make sure the electrical outlet is rated at the same voltage as that stated
on the bottom of the blender motor base.
• Always use the blender on a clean, sturdy and dry surface.
• Always add liquid ingredients to the blender jar first, then add
remaining ingredients. This will ensure that ingredients are
uniformly mixed.
• Cut most foods into cubes approximately ½ inch (1.3 cm) to 1 inch (2.5 cm) to achieve a more uniform result. Cut all cheeses into pieces no larger than ½ inch (1.3 cm).
7
• Use the measured pour lid to measure liquid ingredients such as alcohol.
Replace measured pour lid after ingredients have been added.
• Use a rubber or plastic spatula as needed, only when the blender is
turned off. Never use metal utensils, as damage may occur to the blender
jar or cutting assembly.
• Place cover on firmly. Always operate the blender with the cover on.
• Make sure locking ring is tightly attached to blender jar.
• Always remove locking ring, cutting assembly, and rubber gasket before
cleaning.
• When scraping the blender jar with a spatula, remove the food from the
sides of the blender jar and place food in the center of the blender jar,
over the cutting assembly.
• W
hen chopping fresh herbs, garlic, onion, zest, breadcrumbs, nuts, spices,
etc., make sure the blender jar and cutting assembly are completely dry.
• If food tends to stick to the sides of the blender jar when blending, pulse
in short bursts.
• Pulses should be short bursts. Space the pulses so the blades stop
rotating between pulses.
Don’t:
• Don’t store food or liquids in your blender jar.
• Don’t place cutting assembly and locking ring onto motor base without
the blender jar attached.
• Do not attempt to mash potatoes, knead heavy dough, or beat egg
whites.
• Don’t remove blender jar while unit is on. Keep the blender jar cover
on the blender jar while blending.
• Don't twist locking ring from blender jar when removing blender
jar from motor base. Simply lift blender jar from motor base.
• Don’t overprocess foods. Blender will achieve most desired results in
seconds, not minutes.
• Don’t overload blender. If the motor stalls, turn the blender off immediately, unplug the unit, and remove a portion of the food, then continue.
• Don’t use any utensil inside the blender jar while the motor is on.
• Don’t use any container or accessories not recommended by Cuisinart.
Doing so may result in injury.
• Don’t put hands inside the blender jar when blender is plugged in.
• Don’t add boiling liquids or frozen foods (except ice cubes or ½-inch
pieces of frozen fruit) to glass blender jar. Boiling liquids should cool
for 5 minutes before being placed in blender jar.

recipe TIPS
The simple recipes that follow include some old Cuisinart® favorites as well
as some creative combinations that are sure to please your friends and
family. Thanks to the superior ice-crushing power and pre-programmability
of the PowerEdge™ 700-Watt Blender, you’ll also be able to make delicious
frozen drinks.
Chopping Nuts: Place ½ cup shelled nuts in the blender jar and cover
blender. Pulse on High until desired chop is achieved. Pulse fewer times for
coarsely chopped nuts. For best results process small amounts,
½ cup or less.
Bread, Cookie or Cracker Crumbs: Break or cut bread, cookies or
crackers into pieces ½ inch or less in size. For best bread results, use
day-old bread (drier bread works best). Place bread, cookie or cracker
pieces in blender jar. Pulse on Low to chop, then blend continuously until
desired texture of crumbs is achieved. For best results, process 1 cup or
less at a time.
Crushing Ice: Add up to 8 standard ice cubes to the blender jar.
Cover. Press the pre-programmed Ice Crush button. Timer will sound; turn
blender off.
Grating Fresh Citrus Zest: For best results, blender jar and cutting
assembly must be clean and dry. Remove zest from fruit in strips using a
vegetable peeler; use a sharp knife to remove the bitter white pith from the
underside of the zest. Process no more than 8 strips at a time (zest of 1
medium lemon). Cut strips in half. Add strips and 1 to 2 teaspoons of sugar
or coarse salt (from recipe) to the blender jar. Cover blender jar. Set on High;
blend for 15 to 20 seconds. Turn blender off.
Baby Food: Combine no more than 1 pound of cooked vegetables or
fruit with ½ cup liquid (water, milk, fruit juice, broth, or cooking liquid) in
the blender jar. Cover. Set on Purée. Blend until smooth. Add more liquid
as necessary and process further until desired texture is reached. Always
consult with your pediatrician/family physician concerning the best foods for
your baby and when to introduce new foods to his/her diet.
Grinding Hard Cheese: Cut cheese into ½-inch pieces; remove the outer
hard rind. Place cheese in blender jar and cover blender. Pulse on High to
chop cheese, then blend until desired grind is reached. For best results,
grind no more than 3 ounces of cheese at a time.
Grinding Spices: For best results, blender jar and cutting assembly must
be clean and dry. Add ¼ to ½ cup of spices/seeds/peppercorns to blender
jar. Cover. Pulse on High to break up, then blend until desired consistency
is achieved.
Whipping Cream: If possible, chill blender jar and cutting assembly in
refrigerator for 15 minutes. Add 1 cup heavy or whipping cream to blender
jar. Cover jar. Set on High and blend until cream is thickened. (Do not
overblend – bits of butter will begin to form.) If desired, add 1 tablespoon
sugar and 1 to 2 teaspoons of vanilla or other flavoring. Consistency will be
that of a thickened, but not fluffy, whipped cream and is most appropriate
for topping desserts or coffee drinks.
When using the blender to purée hot mixtures such as creamed soups and
baby foods, strain the solids from the liquid, reserving the cooking liquid.
Then place the cooked solids in the blender jar along with ½ to 1 cup of
the reserved cooking liquid. Use the Pulse function to chop, then blend
until desired consistency/purée is reached.
Allow hot foods to cool slightly before blending to prevent steam buildup,
which may cause the lid to lift up from the blender jar.
Keep your blender out on the counter within easy reach and you will be
surprised how often you will use it.
Keep ice cubes made of juices, yogurt, milk or fruit purées on hand to
substitute for plain ice when making smoothies and frosty beverages to
prevent diluting the drink.

LIMITED THREE-YEAR WARRANTY
This warranty is available to consumers only. You are a consumer if you
own a Cuisinart® PowerEdge™ 700-Watt Blender that was purchased at
retail for personal, family or household use. Except as otherwise
required under applicable law, this warranty is not available to retailers
or other commercial purchasers or owners. We warrant that your
Cuisinart® PowerEdge™ 700-Watt Blender will be free of defects in
materials and workmanship under normal home use for 3 years from the
date of original purchase.
We suggest you complete and return the enclosed product registration
card promptly to facilitate verification of the date of original purchase.
However, return of the product registration card does not eliminate the
need for the consumer to maintain the original proof of purchase in
order to obtain the warranty benefits. In the event that you do not have
proof of purchase date, the purchase date for purposes of this warranty
will be the date of manufacture.
If your Cuisinart® PowerEdge™ 700-Watt Blender should prove to be
defective within the warranty period, we will repair it, or if we think
necessary, replace it. To obtain warranty service, simply call our
toll-free number 1-800-726-0190 for additional information from our
Customer Service Representatives, or send the defective product to:
Customer Service at Cuisinart
150 Milford Road
East Windsor, NJ 08520
To facilitate the speed and accuracy of your return, please enclose
$10.00 for shipping and handling of the product.
Please pay by check or money order (California residents need only
supply proof of purchase and should call 1-800-726-0190 for shipping
instructions).
NOTE: For added protection and secure handling of any Cuisinart®
product that is being returned, we recommend you use a traceable,
insured delivery service. Cuisinart cannot be held responsible for intransit damage or for packages that are not delivered to us. Lost and/or
damaged products are not covered under warranty. Please be sure to
include your return address, daytime phone number, description of the
product defect, product model number (located on bottom of product),
original date of purchase, and any other information pertinent to the
product’s return.
Your Cuisinart® PowerEdge™ 700-Watt Blender has been manufactured
to the strictest specifications and has been designed for use with the
authorized accessories and replacement parts.
This warranty expressly excludes any defects or damages caused by
accessories, replacement parts, or repair service other than those that
have been authorized by Cuisinart.
This warranty does not cover any damage caused by accident, misuse,
shipment or other ordinary household use.
This warranty excludes all incidental or consequential damages. Some
states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of these damages, so this
limitation may not apply to you.
CALIFORNIA RESIDENTS ONLY:
California law provides that for In-Warranty Service, California residents
have the option of returning a nonconforming product (A) to the store
where it was purchased or (B) to another retail store which sells
Cuisinart products of the same type.
The retail store shall then, at its discretion, either repair the product,
refer the consumer to an independent repair facility, replace the
product, or refund the purchase price less the amount directly
attributable to the consumer’s prior usage of the product. If the above
two options do not result in the appropriate relief to the consumer, the
consumer may then take the product to an independent repair facility if
service or repair can be economically accomplished. Cuisinart and not
the consumer will be responsible for the reasonable cost of such
service, repair, replacement, or refund for nonconforming products
under warranty.
California residents may also, according to their preference, return
nonconforming products directly to Cuisinart for repair, or if necessary,
replacement, by calling our Consumer Service Center toll-free at
1-800-726-0190.
Cuisinart will be responsible for the cost of the repair, replacement, and
shipping and handling for such products under warranty.
BEFORE RETURNING YOUR CUISINART® PRODUCT
If you are experiencing problems with your Cuisinart® product, we suggest that you
call our Cuisinart® Service Center at 1-800-726-0190 before returning the product
to be serviced. If servicing is needed, a Representative can confirm whether the
product is under warranty and direct you to the nearest service location.
Important: If the nonconforming product is to be serviced by someone other than
Cuisinart’s Authorized Service Center, please remind the servicer to call our
Consumer Service Center at 1-800-726-0190 to ensure that the problem is
properly diagnosed, the product is serviced with the correct parts, and the product
is still under warranty.
