Russell Hobbs product_212 Product User Manual
Read the instructions and keep them safe. Pass them on if you
pass the blender on. Remove all packaging, but keep it till you
know the blender works.
important safeguards
Follow basic safety precautions, including:
1 The blender must only be used by or under the direct
supervision of a responsible adult. Use and store the
blender out of reach of children.
2 Don’t put the motor unit in liquid, don’t use it in a
bathroom, near water, or outdoors.
3 Unplug before assembling, dismantling, or cleaning.
4 The safety interlock prevents the motor running without
the jug. Don’t use it to switch the blender on and off.
5 Switch off (0) before fitting the jug to the motor unit.
6 Switch off (0) and wait till the blades come to a complete
stop before removing the lid from the jug, and before
removing the jug from the motor unit.
7 Don’t fill with anything hotter than you can comfortably
handle (i.e. liquid temperature below 40°C).
8 When blending hot liquids, put a hand on the lid to hold it
in place.
9 Don’t put your hand into the jug, even after it’s been
removed for cleaning – the blades are sharp.
11 Take great care when handling the blade unit.
12 Don’t put anything other than ingredients into the jug
while the blender is plugged in.
13 Don’t leave the blender unattended while plugged in.
14 Sit the motor unit on a dry, firm, level surface.
15 Route the cable so it doesn’t overhang, and can’t be
tripped over or caught.
16 Keep the blender and cable away from sources of heat.
17 Don’t let the jug overflow. If liquid gets under the motor
unit, it may be sucked into the motor, damaging it.
18 Don’t fill the jug above the 1500ml mark, or the contents
may force the lid off when you start the motor.
19 Don’t run the motor for more than 3 minutes, or it may
overheat. After 3 minutes, let it cool for at least 3 minutes.
20 Don’t use the blender for any purpose other than those
described in these instructions.
21 Don’t run the blender empty, it may overheat.
22 Don’t use the blender if it’s damaged or malfunctions.
23 If the cable is damaged, return the blender, to avoid hazard.
household use only
before using for the first time
Turn to “care and maintenance” on page 6, and clean the
blender, to remove any manufacturing residues, dust, etc.
1 Sit the motor unit on a dry, firm, level surface.
2 Route the cable so it doesn’t overhang, and can’t be
tripped over or caught.
3 Check that it’s switched off – turn the control to 0.
4 Put the plug into the power socket.
5 Hold the jug above the motor unit, with the handle
between the control and the u arrow on the motor unit.
6 Lower the jug on to the motor unit, then turn the jug to
align the handle with the u arrow on the motor unit.
7 Turn the lid clockwise to unlock it (U), then lift it off the jug.
8 Fill the jug – don’t fill past the 1500ml mark, or the contents
may force the lid off when you start the motor.
fitting the lid
9 Hold the lid with the tab between the handle and the front
locking lug, then lower it on top of the jug.
10 Turn the lid anti-clockwise (L) till the tab is above the
handle, and the latch clicks into the safety interlock.
11 Push the cap into the hole in the lid.
12 If you run the blender without the cap, solid ingredients
may be ejected through the hole when they hit the blades.
the control
13 The control has 4 positions:
0 off
1 low – light work, using mainly liquid ingredients
2 high – heavier jobs, using mainly solid ingredients
Y gives a short burst at high speed – in this direction, the
control is spring-loaded (let go, and it’ll return to 0)
14 Don’t run the motor for more than 3 minutes, or it may
overheat. After 3 minutes, let it cool for at least 3 minutes.
adding ingredients
15 To add ingredients during use, remove the cap, pour the
new ingredients through the hole, then replace the cap.
16 Check that the added ingredients don’t push the volume in
the jug past the 1500ml mark.
17 Turn the control to 0, and wait till the blades stop moving.
hot liquids
18 Higher temperatures may soften the lid enough to lose its
seal, allowing the contents to escape, so, when using hot
a) before pouring into the blender, let the liquid cool to
the sort of temperature you can handle comfortably (i.e.
liquid temperature below 40°C)
b) put a hand on the lid, to hold it in place while blending
c) if the lid is too hot for comfort, remove it and let the
liquid cool further – replace the lid before blending
care and maintenance
1 Switch off (0), and unplug the blender.
2 Clean as soon after use as possible, to prevent residues
setting inside the jug.
3 Remove the jug from the motor unit.
4 Wash the jug, lid and cap in warm soapy water, rinse well,
then turn the jug upside down to drain and dry.
5 Keep your hands away from the blades – they’re
sharp. Use a washing-up brush.
6 We don’t recommend putting the jug, lid or cap into a
dishwasher. The extreme environment inside the
dishwasher can affect the surface finishes.
7 Wipe the outside of the motor unit with a damp cloth.
8 Don’t put the motor unit in water or any other liquid.
9 Don’t use harsh or abrasive cleaning agents or solvents.
blade unit
10 You may remove the blade unit for cleaning.
11 Handle only the plastic. Take care not to touch the metal
parts of the blades.
12 Do this with the jug upside down.
13 Grip the jug handle with one hand.
14 Grip the plastic part of the blade unit with the other hand.
15 Turn the blade unit anti-clockwise till it comes loose from
the jug (about 2 cm).
16 Carefully, pull it out of the bottom of the jug.
17 It’s a close fit, so you’ll have to move it around a bit, to get
it out of the jug.
18 Slip the end of a knife under the edge of the seal, and lift
the seal away from the blade unit.
19 Wash the seal and blade unit in warm soapy water, rinse,
and air dry.
20 Replace the seal round the blade unit.
21 Replace the blade unit in the bottom of the jug.
22 Turn the blade unit anti-clockwise to tighten it, it’s a
bayonet-type fitting.
This product doesn’t need an earth. Use a 13A
BS1362 fuse in a 13A BS1363 plug. Fit the blue
wire to N, and the brown wire to L. Fit the cord
grip. If in doubt, call an electrician. Don’t use a
non-rewireable plug unless the fuse cover is
fitted. If you remove the plug, dispose of it.
a few simple recipes to get you started
coriander pesto (dip, topping or sauce)
4 handfuls fresh leaf coriander
4 cloves fresh garlic
120g pine nuts
250ml olive oil
120g freshly grated Parmesan
salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
Put the coriander, garlic, pine nuts, and a bit more than half
the oil into the jug. Fit the lid, and blend till it looks smooth.
To adjust the thickness, add a little oil and give it a burst (Y).
Repeat till the consistency looks right, then transfer to a bowl,
taste, and adjust the seasoning.
Serve as a dip (fairly thick), as a topping for soup (not too thick,
but not runny), or tossed through warm pasta (fairly runny).
black olive and anchovy tapenade/sauce
250g pitted black olives
60g anchovy fillets, drained
3 tbsp capers, drained
150ml olive oil
2 tbsp brandy (optional)
fresh ground black pepper
Put everything but the oil into the jug.
Fit the lid, remove the cap, and add about half the oil.
Replace the cap and blend for a couple of seconds (Y).
Examine the result, then adjust the oil, and blend till you
achieve the consistency you need.
For a tapenade, to spread on toast, you need a paste; for a
sauce, to toss through warm pasta, it should be fairly runny.
You might like to try it with sun-dried tomatoes instead of
capers, with green olives instead of black, or with a little garlic.

6 tbsp horseradish relish
