top rack dishwasher safe.
Tip: You may wish to clean your blending and chopper cutting assemblies
as follows: squirt a small amount of dishwashing liquid into blender jar or
cups and fill halfway with warm water. Attach blade assembly. Run on Low
for 15 seconds. Repeat, using clean tap water. Carefully disassemble parts
and empty blender jar or cups. Rinse and dry all parts thoroughly.
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
liquids, or place in a dishwasher.
Any other servicing should be performed by an authorized service
representative.

Problem:
Solution:
My blender is not turning
on or going into Standby
mode?
Be sure the blade assembly is on the jar or cup correctly.
Be sure it is pushed all the way onto the base. A red light
should come on and the unit should be in Standby mode.
1. Plug blender into an independent outlet.
2. Make sure blender is securely plugged in.
as stated on page 5.
3. Check the outlet for power; try plugging into a different
outlet.
4. Check your home's circuit breaker.
The blender stopped
running.
The motor could have overheated. The resettable fuse,
which protects the motor due to overloading, may have
been tripped. When this happens, to reset the appliance
unplug the unit and let it cool for a minimum of 15 minutes.
Then, reduce the contents of the blender jar and/or clear
any jams. Restart the unit as noted in the operating
directions.
The rubber gasket won’t
come out from the blade
assembly for cleaning.
Run under water and tap on the edge of sink upside down
to loosen the gasket.
The blade assembly is
hard to remove after
blending.
The ingredients cause pressure, and with the air tight seal,
pressure builds up creating a vacuum or a suction effect.
This is normal.
Unit appears to be leaking
1. Check rubber gasket. Make sure it's flush with blender
assembly.
2. Make sure rubber gasket is properly in place.
3. Make sure rubber gasket is not damaged.

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

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

It should take no more than 1½ minutes to achieve a butter.
This method works for all nuts from almonds to pecans to
peanuts.
• To make baby food, process 1 cup of very soft steamed
vegetables with 1 to 3 tablespoons of the steaming liquid.
The amount of liquid depends on the type of vegetable that
you are processing. For example, denser vegetable like a carrot
requires about 3 tablespoons, while a softer vegetable like
broccoli requires only 1 tablespoon. Always run on Low. Always
allow baby food to cool.
• To process soft fruits for baby food, again use 1 cup at a time.
No water is needed with most fruits, but if you are having
trouble processing, add a teaspoon of water at a time.
• The chopping cup with the grinding blade provides you with
the perfect tool for grinding nuts and seeds for many different
applications. Grind flax seeds or almonds and put them into
the travel cup with your smoothie ingredients for added protein.
See our recipes for some guidelines.
• After chopping/blending, flip the chopping cup over so that the
blade assembly is on the top. Gently tap the cup on the counter
a few times to prevent any spillage. Either use the food right
away or cover with the provided storage lid to use at another
time.

BLENDER JAR – TIPS AND HINTS
• Add liquid ingredients first, then follow with solid ingredients.
This will provide more consistent blending and prevent
unnecessary stress on the motor.
• It is recommended that most foods be cut into ½ to 1-inch
pieces to achieve the most uniform result.
• For best results in the fastest time, pulse a few times before
running continuously. Pulses should be short bursts with about
1 second in between each one to allow the blade to stop
rotating between pulses.
• If you want to add ingredients during the blending process,
remove the pour lid and drop or pour ingredients through the
opening at the top.
• To crush ice, put no more than 1 tray of standard ice cubes
(12 to 14 cubes) into the blender jar at one time. Pulse on High
until uniformly crushed.
• When making hot soups, add a small amount of the hot liquid
to the blender jar first, and then follow with some of the solids.
Pulse ingredients and then run on Low. You can always thin it
out more by carefully adding liquid through the opening at the
top of the cover.
• If food sticks to the sides of the jar when blending, stop the
blender, carefully scrape down the food, replace cover and pulse
in short bursts to combine.
• When blending thicker mixtures, lightly hold down top of blender
jar to prevent jumping.
•
Do not attempt to mash white potatoes or knead bread dough in
the blender.
TRAVEL CUPS – TIPS AND HINTS
• When using the travel cup, ingredients are put in the reverse
order of the blender jar. Always put the hardest ingredients into
the travel cup first (ice cubes, frozen fruit) and finish with the
softer ingredients and liquids.
For best results in the fastest time, pulse a few times before
running continuously. Pulses should be short bursts with about
•
It is recommended that most foods be cut into ½-inch to
1-inch pieces to achieve the most uniform result.
•
1 second in between each one to allow the blade to stop
rotating between pulses.
•
To crush ice, put as many as 6 ice cubes into the travel cup at
one time. Pulse on High until uniformly crushed.
• If food sticks to the sides of the cup when blending, stop the
blender, carefully scrape down the food, replace cover and pulse
in short bursts to combine.
•
When blending thicker mixtures, lightly hold down top of travel
cup to prevent jumping.
• After blending, flip the travel cup over so that the blade
assembly is on the top. Gently tap the cup on the counter a few
times to prevent any spillage. Remove the blade assembly and
replace with one of the provided lids.
• All beverage recipes in the booklet are portioned for the travel
cup. If you wish to make more servings, simply double the
recipe and prepare in the blender jar. Be sure to reverse the
order of ingredients when doing so.
CHOPPING CUP – TIPS AND HINTS
•
It is recommended that most foods be cut into ½ to 1-inch
pieces to achieve a more uniform result.
• Do not overload the cup; you will get inconsistent results and
possibly harm the motor or blade. Please refer to the food chart
on page 2 for maximum amounts.
• Due to the powerful motor in the unit, it is recommended to
lightly hold down the top of the chopping cup with one hand
during use.
• For best results in the fastest time, pulse a few times before
running continuously. Pulses should be short bursts with about
1 second in between each one to allow the blade to stop
rotating between pulses.
When grinding nuts, use quick pulses on High. Pulse to achieve
chopped nuts.
•
Results are usually achieved in seconds rather than minutes, so
keep a close eye on the foods to prevent over-processing.
•
• To make nut butters, we recommend using no more than
½ cup of nuts. Always pulse on High first, remove cup from base
and lightly tap to knock the food down from the side walls of
the cup. Return to base and process on Low, scraping down as
necessary if the nuts are not being brought into the blade.
