IMPORTANT SA FEG U A R D S
WARNING: To avoid the risk of serious injury when using
your new Vitamix® container with your Vitamix blender, basic safety
precautions should be followed, including the following.
READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS, SAFEGUARDS, AND
WARNINGS BEFORE OPERATING BLENDER.
1.
Read all instructions.
2.
Not intended for use by or near children or persons with reduced physical,
sensory, or mental capabilities or lack of experience and knowledge. Close
supervision is necessary when any appliance is used by or near children or
incapacitated persons.
3.
To protect against the risk of electrical shock, do not put the blender base in
water or other liquid.
4.
Unplug from outlet when not in use, before putting on or taking off parts,
and before cleaning.
5.
Avoid contacting moving parts.
6.
Do not operate any appliance with a damaged cord or plug or after the
appliance malfunctions, or is dropped or damaged in any manner. Call
Vitamix Customer Service at 1.800.848.2649 or 1.440.235.4840 or email
service@vitamix.com at once for examination, repair, replacement, or
electrical or mechanical adjustment. If purchased outside the U.S.A. or
Canada, contact your local Vitamix dealer.
7.
Alteration or modification of any part of the blender base or container,
including the use of any part or parts that are not genuine authorized
Vitamix parts, may cause fire, electric shock, or injury.
8.
The use of attachments not expressly authorized or sold by Vitamix for use
with this blender, including canning jars, may cause fire, electric shock,
or injury.
9.
Do not use outdoors.
10. Do not let cord hang over edge of table or counter.
11.
Do not let cord contact hot surface, including the stove.
12. Keep hands and utensils out of container while blending to reduce the risk
of severe injury to persons or damage to the blender. A rubber scraper or
spatula may be used, but only when the Vitamix blender is not running.
13. The tamper provided must be used only when the main part of the lid is
in place.
3
IMPO R TA N T SAFEGU A R D S
14. Blades are sharp. Handle or remove blade and blade assembly from the
container with extreme care to avoid injury. To reduce the risk of injury,
never place a blade assembly on the motor base unless assembled to the
Vitamix container.
15. Do not leave foreign objects, such as spoons, forks, knives or the lid plug,
in the container as this will damage the blades and other components when
starting the machine and may cause injury.
16. Never attempt to operate with damaged blades.
17. Always operate blender with lid and lid plug firmly in place. The lid plug
should be removed only when adding ingredients and when using
the tamper.
18. When blending hot liquids or ingredients, use caution; spray or escaping
steam may cause scalding and burns. Do not fill container to the maximum
capacity. Always begin processing on the lowest speed setting, variable
speed 1. Keep hands and other exposed skin away from the lid opening to
prevent possible burns.
19. When making nut butters or oil-based foods, do not process for more than
one minute after the mixture starts to circulate in the container. Processing
for longer periods can cause dangerous overheating.

PARTS AND FEATU R ES
Lid Plug
2-Part Lid
Lid Flap
Container*
Blade Assembly
Retainer Nut
Tamper
* Product image may differ slightly from actual container
2-Part Lid: Your new container has a lid that is easy to put on and take off,
and easy to clean. Always use the lid and the lid plug when the machine is in
operation.
CAUTION: Lids and tampers are not interchangeable between
different container styles, types, and sizes.
Snap the lid onto the container and leave in place for a few minutes. Once the lid
has been left on the container, it will be much easier to lock or remove.
Container: Ounces, cups, and milliliters are clearly marked.
Tamper: While the machine is running, and only through the lid plug opening,
use the tamper to press ingredients into the blades.
Lid Plug: Insert through the lid and secure by turning clockwise. Remove the lid
plug to use the tamper or add ingredients.

PARTS A N D FEAT UR ES
To Lock the Lid in Place:
1.
Position lid on container with lid flaps midway between the spout and
the handle.
2.
Push the lid onto the container until it locks in place.
3.
The lid must always be secured when processing, especially hot liquids that
may scald.
WARNING
Rotating Blades Can
Cause Severe Injury.
DO NOT reach into container while
machine is running.
To Remove the Lid: Lift up on one lid flap while holding the container securely.
To Remove the Lid Plug: Rotate the lid plug counterclockwise from the “locked”

ABOUT THE BLAD ES
The Vitamix machine comes standard with the wet blade container. The blade
is identified by a “W” for wet. This blade is used for most of your recipes.
Additional containers with wet or dry blades may be purchased separately.
WARNING
Rotating Blades Can
Cause Severe Injury.
DO NOT reach into container
while machine is running.
W
W
Wet Blade Container: Designed for processing liquids,
including juice, frozen mixtures, sauces, soups, purees,
batters, and for wet chopping. The wet blades can also
grind grain and knead dough, but they are not quite as
efficient as the dry blades in this application. If used for
grinding, your container will mar and become cloudy; see
instructions for dry container use.
D
D
Dry Blade Container: These blades are clearly marked “D”
and are designed specifically for grinding dry materials such
as grains, cereal, and coffee, and are also used for kneading
bread dough. The dry blades can NOT process liquids
efficiently. If you grind herbs on a regular basis, you may
wish to purchase a separate dry blade container and replace
blades as needed.
CAUTION
Moving Parts
May Become
Hot With
Extended Use.
DO NOT touch.

TAMP ER
WARNING
Rotating Blades Can
Cause Severe Injury.
DO NOT put hands, spatulas in the
container while the machine is running
or while the container is still on the
motor base.
Lids and tampers are not interchangeable
between different container styles, types,
and sizes. Use the tamper that was
supplied with your machine.
How to Determine the Tamper that Can Be Used with
Your Container
Each type of tamper is designed to be used safely and effectively with a
particular container. If a tamper came with your container, it is the correct
tamper for the container. If a tamper did not come with your container, or you
want to determine if a tamper that you already have can be used with your new
container, please compare your container with the containers and matching
tampers to the illustration below.
Before using the tamper during the blending process, verify that it is the
correct tamper. For operating instructions, refer to the owner’s manual that was
provided with your Vitamix blender.
•
64 oz. Short Containers use Tamper P/N 016041 that is approximately
9-¾ inches long.
•
64 oz. Tall Containers use Tamper P/N 000760 that is approximately
12-½ inches long.
•
32 oz. and 48 oz. Containers use Tamper P/N 015033 that is approximately
11 inches long.
9
TAMP ER
To verify that you are using the correct tamper, place the lid on an empty
container, remove the lid plug and insert the tamper. If it is the correct tamper,
it should easily fit into the opening but will not come in contact with the blades
no matter how you move the tamper inside the container. IF THE TAMPER
TOUCHES THE BLADES AT ANY ANGLE - DO NOT USE THE TAMPER WITH
YOUR CONTAINER.
If you do not have the correct tamper for your container, call Vitamix Customer
service at 1.800.848.2649 or 1.440.235.4840 or e-mail service@vitamix.com to
order a new tamper. If purchased outside the United States or Canada, contact
your local Vitamix Dealer.
