Kambrook Recommends Safety First
IMPORTANT: Please retain your
instruction book for future use.
At Kambrook, we believe that safe performance is the first priority in any
consumer product, so that you, our valued customer can confidently
use and trust our products. We ask that any electrical appliance that
you use be operated in a sensible fashion with due care and attention
placed on the following important operating instructions.
Important Safeguards For Your Kambrook

the Kambrook Essentials Blender for the first
time and save for future reference.
• Always secure the blade assembly onto
the blender jug before attaching to the
motor base.
• R
emove and safely discard any packaging
material and promotional labels before using
the blender for the first time.
• Ensure the Speed Control dial is in the ‘OFF’
position and the blender is switched off at
the power outlet and the power cord is
unplugged before attaching the blender jug.
• T o eliminate a choking hazard for young
children, remove and safely discard the
protective cover fitted to the power plug
of this appliance.
• D

bench or table during operation. Ensure the
surface is level, clean and free of water and
other substances. Vibration during operation
may cause the appliance to move.
• Do not use the blender on a sink drain board.
• Do not place the blender on or near a hot
gas or electric burner, or where it could
touch a heated oven.

Your Essentials 500 Watt Blender
1. Powerful 500 watt motor
2. Large 1.5L plastic jug
3. 2 speed control plus pulse function
6
4. Jug chute and inner cap
5. Sturdy non-slip feet
6. Stainless steel multi-blade design
Using Your Essentials 500 Watt Blender
Before First Use
Before using your Kambrook Essentials
Blender for the first time, remove all
packaging material and promotional
labels. Ensure the appliance is
switched off at the power outlet and
power cord is unplugged.
Wash the lid, inner cap and blender
jug in warm soapy water with a soft
cloth. Rinse and dry thoroughly (refer
to care and cleaning instructions).
The motor base can be wiped with
a damp cloth. Dry thoroughly.
Assembling/Operating Your
Kambrook Blender
1. Place the power cord through
the cord slot and place the motor
base on a flat, dry surface. Ensure
that the blender is switched off at
the power outlet and the power
plug is unplugged from the
power outlet.
2. Place the blender jug onto the
motor base. Ensure that the
blender jug is securely positioned.
3. Add food or liquid to the blender
jug. Place the lid on the blender,
and push down to seal. Insert the
inner cap into the hole of the
blender jug lid.
4. Plug the power cord into a 230V
or 240V power outlet and switch
on at the power point.
5. Turn the speed control dial
clockwise for the speeds
‘LOW’ and ‘HIGH’ setting and
anticlockwise for ‘PULSE’ setting.
The speed can be changed at
any time during the blending
process. Ideally, start blending on
‘LOW’ speed and then increase
to a ‘HIGH’ speed if necessary to
blend until desired consistency
is reached. For ingredients that
require a short burst of power, use
the pulse speed. This is ideal for
thick liquids or nuts.
6. To stop the blending at any time,
turn the speed control dial to ‘OFF’.
7. After use, ensure the blender
is switched off by turning the
speed control dial to the ‘OFF’
position, then switch off at the
power outlet and remove the
power cord. Allow the blender
to cool before storing.
NOTE: During the blending
process, ingredients may
stick to the sides of the blender
jug. To push the food back
on the blades, turn the speed
control dial to ‘OFF’ and switch
the power off at the power
outlet and remove the power
cord. Remove the lid and
use a plastic spatula to
scrape down the sides of
the jug. Replace lid before
recommencing blending.
NOTE: If the blades become
stuck, immediately select the
speed control dial to ‘OFF’
and switch the power off at the
power outlet and remove the
power cord. Remove the jug
from the blender base and
remove the lid. Use a plastic
spatula to dislodge the food
or liquid from the blades.
Replace lid before
recommencing blending.

Hints and Tips
• Ensure the maximum level on the
blender jug is not exceeded. Ensure
the lid fits securely and the inner
cap is on.
• Use ‘LOW’ speed for dressings,
marinades and foods that require
blending until just combined.
• Use ‘HIGH’ speed for pureeing
smoothie or cocktail making.
• Use ‘PULSE’ for mixtures that require
short bursts of power such as thick
liquids or chopping nuts.
• Ensure all removable parts have
been thoroughly washed and dried
before assembly.
• Ensure the blender is correctly
assembled before operating.
• Ensure the blender is used on a
clean and dry surface.
• Place liquids into the blender jug
before solid ingredients except
where specified in recipes.
• Cut all food into small cubes
(approx 2–3 cm square) to achieve
an even result.
• If mixing hard and soft foods
together, begin with the hard
foods and then add soft foods.
Continue blending until you have
reached the desired consistency
and even texture.
• To add ingredients during blending,
remove the inner cap on the lid
and drop solid ingredients or pour
liquids through the lid opening.
Use a container with a pouring lip,
such as a measuring cup, when
adding liquids.
• Place one hand on top of the
blender lid and hold it down
when blending large quantities
of thin liquids. This will prevent the
lid from popping off due to
excessive pressure.
8
NOTE: Do not blend dry, thick
or heavy mixtures for more than
1 minute without switching off
the blender and stirring the
ingredients with a plastic spatula,
and then continuing blending.
• For simple blending tasks, for
example, mayonnaise, salad
dressings, do not operate for
longer than 1 minute at one
single time.
• Do not use the blender to store food.
• Do not use the blender to beat egg
whites as it will not incorporate air.
• Do not use the blender to
mash potatoes.
• Do not use the blender to knead
dough or other heavy mixtures.
• Do not place large pieces of
solid or frozen foods into the
blender jug. Always break pieces
before blending.
• Do not remove the blender jug or
lid while the blender is operating.
Always switch off at the power
outlet and unplug at the
power point before removing
the blender jug.
• Do not overfill by exceeding the
maximum mark on the blender jug.
Some mixtures increase in volume
during blending.
• Do not overload the blender with
more than specified amounts.
Overloading could cause the
motor to stall.
CAUTION: Do not
process boiling liquids
or hot ingredients. Allow
hot ingredients to cool
before placing them
into the blender jug.
Hints and Tips
continued
CAUTION: It is not
recommended to blend
with an ingredient volume
capacity of less than

place one hand firmly
on top of the closed
blender lid to enhance
the stability of the blender
during operation.
Care and Cleaning
Cleaning the Motor Body
Ensure the blender has stopped
operation by turning the speed

cap in warm, soapy water, rinse and
dry thoroughly.
Storage
CAUTION: Blades must
be handled carefully as
they are sharp!
The motor body can be cleaned
with a soft, damp cloth (do not use
abrasive agents or cloths which can
damage the surface). Dry and polish
with a soft, lint free cloth.
Before storing, thoroughly wash and
dry all removable parts.
Assemble the blender and store on
the kitchen bench or in an easy to
access cupboard.
Store out of reach of children.
Store the appliance upright.
