Safeguards for
YOUR BLENDER
• Wash the blender jug with
warm soapy water before
first use.
• Use only the blender jug
and lid that is supplied
with this blender. The use
of attachments, including
canning jars or accessories
not manufactured or
specified by Sage may cause
the risk of fire, electrical
shock, or injury.
• Always ensure the blender is
assembled properly before
using. Lid must be firmly
secured to the jug before
operation to ensure internal
contents do not escape, spray
or overflow.
• If the motor is straining
under a heavy load, do not
operate continuously for
more than 10 seconds. Allow
the motor to rest for 1 minute
between uses on heavy loads.
Note that none of the recipes
in these instructions are
considered a heavy load.
• Do not leave the blender
unattended when in use.
• Flashing light indicates ready
to operate. Avoid any contact
with blades or moving parts.
• Keep hands, fingers, hair
and clothing away from the
blender during use. Always
turn blender off and unplug
at the wall before reaching
inside.
• Be careful when handling the
blender jug as the blades are
very sharp. Be careful when
emptying the jug and during
cleaning. Mishandling of the
blades may cause injury.
• Do not remove the jug from
the motor base while blender
is in use.
• The blender is intended for
food or drinks preparation.
Do not use for anything
other than food or drinks.
Do not operate without any
ingredients in the blender jug.
• Never attempt to operate
with damaged blades, or
with utensils, or any foreign
objects inside the blender jug.
5
Sage recommends safety first
• To reduce the risk of severe
injury to persons or damage
to the blender, keep hands
and utensils out of the jug
while blending. The scraper
and frozen dessert wand
provided can be used,
provided the main lid is in
place.
• Never blend boiling hot
liquids. Allow temperature to
drop before putting into the
jug for blending.
• Be careful if hot liquid is
poured into the blender, as it
can be ejected out of the jug
due to sudden steaming.
• When blending hot liquids
ensure inner measuring cap
is in place. Cap will protect
from splashing of hot liquids
during blending and includes
vents designed to relieve
pressure and avoid steam
build up.
• Be careful removing the lid
after blending hot liquids, as
steam traps can form in the
liquid and be ejected out of
the jug.
• Do not put the blender jug in
extremes of heat or cold, for
example placing a cold jug
into hot water, or vice versa.
• Before moving the blender,
cleaning or putting it away for
storage, always turn blender
off and unplug at the wall.

Operating your Sage Product
Getting started
ON | OFF
The ON | OFF button powers the unit into
READY mode.
Ready mode
The blender will default to MANUAL.
Manual features
Speed control dial
There are 12 speed settings from STIR
through to MILL.
STIR mixes more delicate foods with a slow
stirring motion and light pausing to fold
ingredients together.
MILL is the fastest setting, and is ideal for
milling nuts, grains and seeds.
The blender is programmed to allow
manual speeds to run for 3 minutes before
automatically stopping.
PAUSE | PLAY
Pauses and holds the speed and timer for up
to 2 minutes. Press PAUSE | PLAY again
to resume.
Pause is also activated if the jug is removed
from base during use. Replace jug, and press
START to resume.
Repeat function
If the START button is pressed when
using the manual speed dial, or if the timer
finishes, the current speed setting will be
held for 2 minutes to allow a quick repeat of
the cycle.
Pressing the START button will re-start this
repeat cycle.
If you want to clear the previous speed from
the memory, press and hold the START
button for 2 seconds.
Sleep
After 2 minutes of inactivity, LCD powers
off, and the ON | OFF button flashes red.
After 5 minutes of inactivity, the blender
turns OFF completely. Press the ON | OFF
button to reactivate.
Count-up timer
If the timer isn’t set, the blender timer
counts up in seconds as it blends. When
using the timer this way, the blender will
stop after 3 minutes, or you can cancel
blending manually.
Count-down timer
The alternative to running the blender in
count-up mode is to set the blending time
before starting.

Operating your Sage Product
Preset programs
Pulse | ice crush (60 seconds)
Optimised to crush ice, and has an
intelligent sensor to stop the motor when
ice is done. This cycle is also ideal for
processing other foods that need sudden
bursts of power.
Smoothie (60 seconds)
Optimised to combine and aerate frozen
and liquid ingredients together. The
SMOOTHIE function has a unique
processing technique that blends the denser
ingredients at lower speed, then increases
in speed as ingredients thicken. This
will happen several times while blending
smoothies. The programming also circulates
the ingredients for maximum aeration and a
creamy texture.
Green smoothie (60 seconds)
Optimised to break down whole hard
ingredients like fruits, leafy greens and
seeds, and allows them to blend together
with other soft and liquid ingredients.
Frozen Dessert (60 seconds)
Optimised to break down and combine
frozen ingredients quickly. Use the frozen
dessert wand for best results.
Soup (6 minutes)
This preset program runs for 6 minutes to
blend and heat ingredients to make soups.
The program has a slow start to combine
ingredients before running at high speed,
and ends with a couple of stirs to release
any steam bubbles that may have formed in
the soup.
WARNING
Never blend boiling hot liquids. Allow
temperature to drop before putting
into the jug for blending.
Auto clean
Use to remove most of the ingredients off
the blender walls and blades. Add 500ml
warm soapy water, and press the AUTO
CLEAN button. For harder to clean, sticky
or thick ingredients, add ½ teaspoon of
dish liquid detergent for extra cleaning
power. For best results, run the clean cycle
immediately after use.
Pause | Play
Pauses and holds a program mid-cycle for
up to 2 minutes. Press PAUSE | PLAY again
to resume.
Pause is also activated if the jug is removed
from base during use. Replace jug, and press
START to resume.
Note: If the blender is running and you
press a different preset button, it will switch
to that program without stopping.

Hints & Tips
HINTS & TIPS
• If the volume (while blending) is below
the maximum line, the inner measuring
cap can be removed and oils/liquids can
be added while blender is in use.
• Run the blender only for the appropriate
amount of time required – do not over
blend ingredients.
• Use the PULSE | ICE CRUSH button
when food is too thick or coarse to
circulate within the blender jug.
• The scraper and frozen dessert wand
accessories can be used during blending.
Remove the inner cap, and always make
sure the main lid stays firmly in place.
• The maximum amount of ice cubes that
the blender can process is 250g (approx.
1 standard ice tray).
• When the blender has been running
for 3 minutes in manual mode, it will
automatically turn off. This is a safety
feature to protect the motor.
• Thicker mixtures puree more efficiently
if the jug is ¼ to ½ full.
• Do not use metal utensils, as they may
damage the blades or blender jug.
Dry milling
•
Please note that milling hard
ingredients like spices, nuts, sugar,
coffee, grains, etc will cause scratching
and clouding to the inside surfaces of
the jug.
•
This is a cosmetic result from milling
these kinds of ingredients, and does not
affect the performance of the jug.
• Do not exceed the MAX mark when
adding foods and liquids into blender.
• Ingredients may stick to the sides of the
blender jug. To push food back onto the
blades with the main lid on (inner cap
removed), use the scraper provided to
scrape down the sides of the jug, and
continue blending.
• If any moisture or liquid appears on top
of the motor base during blending, turn
the blender off and unplug from the
outlet. Remove the blender jug, and wipe
base immediately with a paper towel.
• Press CANCEL to stop blending at any
time or during one of the programs.
• A speed or function can be selected
at any time, even while the blender
is running. Press the new speed or
program, and the blender will change
operation immediately.

Troubleshooting
Problem
Easy Solution
Motor doesn’t start or blade
doesn’t rotate
• Check the blender jug and lid are securely in place.
• Check the ON | OFF button and selected function
button is illuminated.
• Check that the power plug is properly inserted into
the power outlet.
Food is unevenly chopped
• T
his can happen when too much food is being
blended at one time. Try a smaller amount, and
work in batches if necessary.
• T
he ingredients may be too large. Try cutting into
smaller pieces. For best results, ingredients should
be in pieces no larger than 2cm.
Food is chopped too fine or
is watery
• Try blending for shorter period of time. Use the
ICE CRUSH | PULSE function for better control.
Food sticks to blade and jug
• The mixture may be too thick. Try adding more
liquid and/or using a slower speed for blending.
Blender overloaded
• This blender has a motor protection feature to
protect against over heating and/or over current
use. When activated OVERLOAD PROTECTION
will flash on the LCD and the blender will
be inoperable.
• If activated, turn the blender off by pressing the
ON | OFF button on the control panel, switch of
at the wall and unplug the blender. Wait a few
minutes then re-plug and power ON the blender.
• If OVERLOAD PROTECTION is still flashing,
repeat and leave the blender for at least 20-30
minutes. Once OVERLOAD PROTECTION has
disappeared from the screen the blender is ready
to be used again.
• We recommend blending in smaller batches, or
cutting ingredients into smaller pieces.

CARE & CLEANING
Jug and lid
In order to keep your jug clean and avoid

follow the below steps as soon as possible
after use:
1. Rinse most of the ingredients off the
jug and lid.
2. Add 500ml of warm water and press
the AUTO CLEAN button. If thick
or sticky ingredients require extra
cleaning power add a few drops of dish
liquid detergent.
3. Rinse the jug and lid again and/or wash
separately in warm soapy water with a
soft cloth or bottle brush.
Dishwasher
The blender jug and lid can be washed in
the dishwasher on a standard wash cycle.
Jug can be placed on the bottom shelf,
however the lid and inner lid should be on
the top shelf only.
Motor base
To clean the motor base, wipe with a soft,
damp cloth then dry thoroughly. Wipe any
excess food particles from the power cord.
Storage
Store your blender upright with the blender
jug assembled on the motor base, or beside
it. Do not place anything on top. To allow air
to circulate, keep the lid off.
Cleaning agents
Do not use abrasive scouring pads or
cleaners on either the motor base or the jug,
as they may scratch the surface. Use only
warm soapy water with a soft cloth.
Stubborn food stains and odours
Strong smelling foods such as garlic, fish,
spices, and some vegetables such as carrots
may leave an odour or stain on the blender
jug and lid. To remove, soak blender jug and
lid for 5 minutes in warm soapy water. Then
wash with a mild detergent and warm water,
rinse well and dry thoroughly. Store jug with
the lid off.
Dry milling
Please note that milling hard ingredients
like spices, nuts, sugar, coffee, grains, etc
will cause scratching and clouding to the
inside surfaces of the jug.
