READ BEFORE OPERATION
• Read all instructions before operating the Magic Bullet.
• Do not immerse the cord, plug or base in water or other liquids.
• Do not pull, twist or mistreat the power cord.
• Avoid contact with moving parts.
• Keep hands and utensils away from the cutting blade while
chopping or blending food to reduce the risk of severe injury to
person or damage to the blender/chopper. A scraper may be used,
but only when the blender/food chopper is not running.
• Never keep the blade running for more than one minute at a time,
as it can cause permanent damage to the motor. If the motor stops
working, unplug the Power Base and let it cool for a few hours
before attempting to use it again. Your Magic Bullet has an internal
thermal breaker that shuts off the unit when it overheats.
Letting the thermal breaker cool down should allow the Power
Base to reset.
• Do not operate any appliance with a damaged cord or plug or if
the appliance malfunctions, or is dropped or damaged in any
manner. Contact Customer Service for assistance in obtaining a
replacement.
• Unplug the Magic Bullet when it is not in use, before putting on or
taking off parts, and before cleaning or assembling.
• Always use your Magic Bullet on a clean, flat, hard, dry surface.
• Always completely assemble the blade and cup before placing on
the Power Base.
• The use of attachments not recommended or sold by the
manufacturer may cause fire, electric shock or injury.
• Do not allow the cord to hang over the side of the counter or table.
• Do not allow cord to touch hot surfaces, including stove.
• Never leave the Magic Bullet unattended while it is in use.
• Close supervision is necessary when any appliances are used by
or near children.

• Never microwave with the blade or solid lid still attached.
Remove the blade or solid lid and twist on a Shaker/ Steamer top.
• When microwaving, beware of steam and use an oven mitt to
remove hot cups or containers from the microwave.
• Do not use Party Mugs in the microwave.
• Follow the heating times recommended in your microwave oven
instruction manual carefully.
• Do not overcook food. Always keep a check while cooking with
your microwave.
• Do not cook whole eggs in the microwave.
• Superheated Water – Liquids such as water, coffee, tea or soups
are able to be overheated beyond the boiling point without
appearing to be boiling. Visible bubbling or boiling when the
container is removed from the microwave is not always present.
This could result in very hot liquids suddenly boiling over when the
container is disturbed or a spoon or other utensil (such as a Magic
Bullet blade) is inserted into the liquid. To reduce the risk of injury
to persons:
– Do not overheat the liquid. Heat in short bursts, and thoroughly
stir in between to ensure the heat is evenly distributed.
– Do not use containers with a solid lid in your microwave.
Always use the Shaker/ Steamer lid.
– Use extreme care when inserting a spoon or other utensils into
the container.
– Avoid heating baby food or formula in Magic Bullet cups, even
with the lid off.
– Don’t defrost frozen beverages in Magic Bullet cups (especially
carbonated beverages). Even if the container is opened, pressure
can build up. This can cause the container to burst, possibly
resulting in injury.
– Hot foods and steam can cause burns. Be careful when opening
the Magic Bullet cups when they contain hot microwave foods
and liquids.
– To prevent possible injury, always use protective oven gloves and
direct steam away from hands and face.

Congratulations on your purchase of the Magic Bullet, the personal, versatile
Recipe Favorites .........................................................................98
We sincerely hope you enjoy using your Magic Bullet as much as we do. We’re
confident that it will soon become your favorite kitchen helper … one that you will
use every day!
countertop magician that works like magic. As you’ve no doubt noticed, the Magic
Bullet is not your ordinary kitchen appliance. In fact, it’s an entirely new concept in
labor-saving devices. Unlike bulky blenders and unwieldy food processors that
most of us only pull out of storage for specific recipes and special occasions, the
Magic Bullet is so handy, so versatile and easy to use that you’ll put it to work
EVERY single day (probably several times a day). Best of all, it saves you time
because it does almost any job in the kitchen in 10 seconds or less!
Peeling, chopping, mixing and blending are all tedious, time-consuming kitchen
tasks that can really take the joy out of cooking, especially for those who are
pressed for time. But with the Magic Bullet you can peel, chop, mix, blend, whip,
grind and more — all in just seconds — for the fastest, tastiest meals ever.
Imagine, everything from chopped onions and minced garlic to light and creamy
cheesecake, all prepared in just 10 seconds or less! And that’s just the beginning.
The Magic Bullet cups are microwave safe, which means you can actually cook in
them. Afterward, simply pop on one of the stay-fresh resealable lids to keep
leftovers fresh and flavorful for days. Just think … no knives, cutting boards, or
pots and pans to clean; no plastic wrap, foil or plastic storage containers to mess
with. The Magic Bullet does it all. And because your Magic Bullet cups, Party
Mugs, lids and blades go right in the dishwasher, cleanup is a breeze. So you save
even more time!
Because the Magic Bullet is intended for everyday use, it has been designed to
be compact so that it easily fits on any countertop, always right where you need
it. And only the Magic Bullet comes with the ingenious accessories that turn it
into the Bullet Blender, a full-size blender perfect for creating family-size batches
of your favorite drinks, and the Bullet Juicer, ideal for turning fresh fruits and
vegetables into delicious, nutritious juices the whole family will love.

a Flat Blade for whipping cream and grinding hard foods like coffee
beans and spices. Both blades are dishwasher-safe. In the base of the
blades, there is a plastic gasket that creates an airtight fit with the
Magic Bullet cups. After washing a blade, check to make sure the
gasket is still inside as the heat from some dishwashers can cause
them to become loose.

Shaker/Steamer Tops
Your Magic Bullet comes with two handy
Shaker/Steamer Tops that are used for steaming
foods in the microwave, or as shaker tops. The
Shaker/Steamer Top with the large holes is for

Using the Magic Bullet
Using the Magic Bullet is as easy as 1, 2, 3 …
1. Load the ingredients into the Short Cup, Tall Cup,
or Party Mug.
2. Twist on the Cross, or Flat Blade
until the blade and cup have a tight
seal.
*Only use the Shaker/Steamer Tops to heat food in the microwave.
3. Line up the tabs, place the bullet on the
Power Base and press down on the cup to turn it on.

Here’s how it works: As long as you’re holding it down,
the Magic Bullet is on. When you want the blades to stop,
simply let go.
“Lock On” mode: For hands-free operation,
press down and gently turn the cup clockwise
until the tabs lock under the lip of the Power
Base. Once you are in Lock On mode, the motor
runs continually. To turn it off, simply twist the cup back
counter-clockwise and release the cup.
Never put your hands or utensils near the
m oving blades and never use your hands or utensils to
press the activator buttons down while the Power Base is
plugged in.
If the blade stops in Lock On mode, unplug the Magic
Bullet immediately. Sometimes, especially when the motor is
coming up to speed, a hard ingredient, such as a carrot chunk,
can get stuck in the blade and stop it from turning. If the blade
stops, UNPLUG THE MAGIC BULLET IMMEDIATELY. Take the blade/cup
assembly off and give the ingredients a good shake to unblock the

blade. If the blade still seems obstructed, twist off the blade and
carefully (it’s sharp) spin the blade manually. Once the blade will
spin, plug the Magic Bullet back in and try again — you should be
good to go.
Flat Blade
The straight Flat Blade is used for…
Never run the Magic Bullet for more than one minute at
a time, as it can cause permanent damage to the motor. If
the motor stops working, unplug the Power Base and let it
cool for a few hours before attempting to use it again. Your Magic
Bullet has an internal thermal breaker that shuts the unit off when it
overheats. Letting the thermal breaker cool down should allow it to
reset.
Choosing the Right Blade

grated in just seconds.
Pureeing — Dishes such as hummus, all-natural soups, and baby
food are creamy smooth in seconds.
Shaving Ice and Frozen Fruits — For tasty treats such as snow
cones or fruit sorbets.
Grinding Meats — Delicious chicken and ham salads or pâtés are
ground in seconds.

The “Pulse” Technique
Because the Magic Bullet’s motor is so powerful, if
you aren’t careful you can quickly overprocess food
and turn it into mush. That is why when you want
to make foods such as chunky salsa, or coarse
chopped onions, the Pulse technique is key.
Pulsing takes a tiny bit of getting used to, but once
you get a feel for it, you’ll be a Pro in no time!
To Pulse you simply press down on the cup very
quickly and immediately release. For foods that
you want coarsely chopped, a quick tap on the top
of the cup is all you need. Then let the blades
come to a complete stop and tap again until you
get the consistency you desire.

Bullet
THE SECRET: The trick to successful Pulsing is to
make sure that the machine doesn’t accidentally slip
into Lock On mode. To avoid this, simply use your
other hand to apply counter-clockwise pressure on
the cup as you Pulse.
First … Make sure the hand holding the cup is
applying counter-clockwise pressure to keep it from
locking on.
To start … hold the cup at the base and apply
counter-clockwise pressure to it to keep it from
locking on.
Then … with your other hand, tap the top of the cup and
immediately release. Continue Pulsing until you get the consistency
you want.
The “Shake” Technique
Sometimes, when you are working with thicker ingredients, like
those in chicken salad (Page 65) or marinara sauce (Page 69), the
density of the mixture can make it hard for the ingredients toward
the top of the cup to make it down to the blade. If some of your
ingredients are having a hard time making it down to the blade,
simply use this Shake technique.
The “Cocktail” Shake: When making smoothies,
dips or other recipes where you are using the
Bullet in Lock On mode, simply …
Then … Give the Bullet a strong downward shake to
throw the ingredients into the blade, and Pulse at the
bottom of the shake.
Repeat … until you get the right consistency.
CAUTION: the Power Base motor must be off and not
running when using the Shake technique.
The “Tap” Technique
If you have a problem with sticky ingredients clinging
to the side of the cup instead of being recirculated
into the cutting zone …
First … Take the cup off the Power Base and Tap
the cup and blade assembly on the counter to force
the ingredients down into the blades.
Then … Replace the cup and blade assembly to the
Power Base and finish processing.
While in Lock On mode … pick up the
whole cup and Power Base and shake it like
a cocktail shaker.
Repeat … if necessary until you achieve the
consistency you want.
The “Shakin’ Pulse”: When you need to shake ingredients
that you want coarsely chopped, like salsa or meat salads, you are
going to want to use the Shakin’ Pulse technique.

Chopping Onions and Garlic
Smoothies
With the Magic Bullet, chopping onions and mincing garlic is
effortless. No more tears, no more stinky hands and no more knife
and cutting board … you are literally seconds away from chopped,
minced, even pureed onions and garlic.
The Magic Bullet is perfect for creating delicious, satisfying, frosty
smoothies and protein drinks. The best part is that you blend your
ingredients and drink your smoothie out of the very same
dishwasher-friendly cup … no mess! Plus, the power of the Magic
Bullet pulverizes ice in a way few blenders ever will.
First … prep the onions or garlic by removing any skin and making
sure the pieces will fit into the Magic Bullet cup.
Next … Place the whole onions, onion pieces, or garlic into the
Short Cup and twist on the Cross Blade.
Then … Give it several very quick Pulses. Remember to apply a bit
of counter-clockwise pressure to the cup to keep it from locking on
(see the Pulse technique on Page 17). With the other hand, give it a
quick tap and release as soon as you hear the motor start. For
coarser onion or garlic chunks, Pulse only a few times. For a minced
consistency, Pulse five or six times. And for a smooth puree, just
keep Pulsing, or Lock On (see Page 15) until you’ve achieved a
smooth, thin consistency.
When chopping onions and garlic, you may find the Tap
Technique (Page 19) helpful.
First … Add your favorite smoothie ingredients and ice into the Tall
Cup, or Party Mug, and twist on the Cross Blade. (See recipes on
Page 84.)
Then … Place the cup onto the Power Base, push down on the cup
and twist clockwise until the tabs of the cup fit under the lip of the
Power Base and the motor is running consistently (Lock On mode).
Keep blending … until you achieve a smooth consistency. The
thickness of the drink will depend on the ingredients you use. You’ll
usually be able to hear when it’s done. When all the ice is crushed,
the grinding sound will stop and you’ll hear a nice even whirring
sound.
If your smoothie is so thick that the ice or fruit is having a
hard time reaching the blade, add more liquid and continue
blending.
Experiment with different smoothie ingredients. Smoothies
are all about throwing whatever fruits, juices, yogurts, or
whatever you have around the house, into a cup and giving it a
whirl. Feel free to experiment with different ingredients.
To improve the performance of your Magic Bullet:
When crushing ice, use the cross blade with either the Party Mugs
or the Blender Jug. Do not fill the container with more than one third
ice. Use “Pulse Blending” mode, do not use the “Lock On” mode.
If ice gets stuck under the cross blade, lift the container off the
Power Base, give the container a shake and then continue blending.

Frozen Drinks
the typical bean-grinders. Plus, because all the Magic Bullet parts
are washable, you can wash away the flavored coffee tastes. Never
again will your French Roast taste like French Vanilla!
When it’s frozen drink time your Magic Bullet is, hands down, the
Ultimate Party Machine! Because the drinks are so quick and easy to
make, everyone can have their favorite frozen cocktail. Plus, you can
make the drinks right in the Party Mugs, then twist on your
favorite-color Comfort Lip Ring, so everyone knows whose drink is
whose. Partying has never been easier — or more fun!
First … Add ice to the Party Mug (or Tall Cup).
Next … add your favorite ingredients (see page 45 for some of our
favorites) and twist on the Cross Blade.
Then … Place the cup onto the Power Base, push down on the cup,
twist to Lock On mode and blend until smooth.
Be Responsible ... Everyone at Homeland Housewares encourages
you to have a great time, but please do so responsibly. Do not drink
and drive, and please be careful when you are consuming alcohol.
If your drink is so thick that the ice or fruit is having a hard
time reaching the blade, add more liquid and continue
blending.
Grinding Coffee
There is nothing better than a steaming cup of java made with
freshly ground beans. Unfortunately, most bean-grinders are
inconvenient and inevitably make a big mess on the countertop.
Finally, with the Magic Bullet, grinding coffee is a breeze because
you twist the blade off from the top, and the coffee is in the bottom
of the cup. That means you don’t have to go through that whole
flipping-the-cup-over-to-get-the-coffee-out ordeal that you do with
22
First … Add coffee beans to the Short Cup and twist on the Flat
Blade.
Next … Place the cup onto the Power Base.
Now … Pulse a few times, or Lock On, until the beans are ground
to the desired texture.
Remember … the finer the grind, the stronger the coffee. If you
want a milder brew, stop Pulsing when the beans have the texture
of coarse sand. If you’re going for an espresso-like jolt, keep
grinding until the beans become a fine powder.
Check out Page 79 for some of our favorite coffee recipes.
Mixing Batters and Breads
Finally, there’s a way to make baked goods without all the stirring,
whisking and chopping! The Magic Bullet makes the preparation and
cleanup of baked goods a piece of cake. Pancakes, muffins, breads
and more have never been faster — or fluffier! What we like to do is
start with instant batter mixes and then make them fancy by adding
tasty ingredients like nuts, cinnamon or apple to the batter. Since it’s
so quick, everyone can have the add-ins they like.
First … Add the ingredients into the Magic Bullet Tall Cup, or
Blender, depending on the size of the batch.
Then … Blend the ingredients until smooth.
When using add-ins … The power of the Magic Bullet will mince
add-ins into tiny little pieces — which is great for flavor, but you

may want bigger, chunkier pieces as well. For example, when
making blueberry muffins, we recommend that you add about half of
the blueberries you intend to use in with the batter to be blended,
then add the other half after the batter is blended. Just twist off the
blade, add the whole berries, twist the blade back on and Shake
cocktail shaker style a few times. That way you get fantastic
blueberry flavor mixed right in with the batter, and delicious whole
blueberries throughout the muffins for wonderful texture. You can
use this technique with nuts, raisins, chocolate chips, whatever
you desire.
Grinding Spices
Chopping Fresh Herbs
Finally, an effortless way to get all of the zesty, pungent flavor of
fresh chopped herbs, without spending an hour at the cutting board.
Now, in just seconds, you can make any meal taste like it was
prepared by a gourmet chef.
First … Add several sprigs of your favorite herb to the Short Cup.
Then … Twist on the Cross Blade and give it several quick Pulses.
Remember to apply a bit of counter-clockwise pressure to the cup to
keep it from Locking On (see the Pulse technique on Page 17.)
Adding a pinch of fresh dill, parsley, chives, or basil over
soups, mashed potatoes, salads — literally any dish you can
think of — adds such zing to the flavor of the dish and just
enough “chichi-ness” to make your family and guests feel like
you’ve pulled out all the stops.
24
Now it’s easy to spice up your life ... just use your Magic Bullet. No
pre-ground spice can hold a candle to a freshly ground blend; you
have no idea what you’ve been missing. In seconds you can have
pancakes sprinkled with fresh cinnamon, or eggnog with a pinch of
fresh, zesty nutmeg … the possibilities are endless, mouth-watering
and effortless. And with the ingenious Shaker Tops, you can serve
right to the table. Bon appetit!
First … Add your favorite fresh spice to the Short Cup.
Next … Twist on the Flat Blade and grind until you’ve created a
slightly textured powder.
Then … Twist on the Shaker/Steamer Top with the two sets of
small holes and sprinkle to your heart’s content.
Seasoned Butters. With almost no effort you can look like a
culinary school graduate ... by whipping up a few seasoned
butters. Just add chives, garlic, honey, mustard seed, whatever
you like, to slightly softened butter and whip in your Short Cup with
the Flat Blade. You’ll create a spread that will make everyday bread
and butter a five-star experience. Add a pat to the top of cooked fish,

Chopping cheese is a time-consuming process, and pre-shredded
cheese can be expensive. Now, with your Magic Bullet, you can
effortlessly cut up cheese in less time than it takes to find your
cheese grater. You can even twist a handy Shaker/Steamer Top
onto the Magic Bullet cup and turn your Magic Bullet cup into a
cheese shaker!

Bullet Basics
Basics
First … Add your favorite cheese to the Short Cup.
Next … Twist on the Cross Blade and grind until you’ve created a
coarsely textured powder.
Then … Twist on the large-holed Shaker/Steamer Top.
Grinding Meats
Until now, grinding meat required special equipment and a lot of
effort. Now, with the Magic Bullet, you can grind meat for fresh
sirloin burgers, meat sauces and party patés right in your Magic
Bullet ... in just 10 seconds or less.
First … Add the meat to the Tall Cup and twist on the Cross Blade.
Then … Pulse (Page 17) until you get the consistency you want.
Since meat is very dense, you may need to use the Tap technique
(Page 19) to make sure every bit gets ground.
Deviled Ham. Check out the Deviled Ham recipe on Page 68
for a scrumptious ground meat recipe.
Whipping Cream
Light, fluffy, delicious whipped cream used to require a bowl, a whisk
and a heck of a lot of elbow grease. Now with the Magic Bullet, it’s
never been easier, or faster, to create mountains of cloudlike
whipped cream.
First … Add heavy cream to the Short Cup.
Then ... Twist on the Flat Blade and whip until smooth. You’ll hear it
when it’s done; the sound of the motor will change to a hum.
See the Magic Bullet coffee drinks section on Page 79 for a
number of tantalizing coffee recipes that use whipped cream,

Cooking in the Magic Bullet Cups
Unlike conventional blenders or food processors, the Magic Bullet’s
job isn’t done once the ingredients are blended. Once you’ve
prepared your food, your Magic Bullet is then ready to cook it as
well! Just remove the blade, twist on a Shaker/Steamer Top and
place the cup in the microwave. Seconds later, you’ll have steaming
hot soups, rich and hearty pasta sauces or delicious melted cheeses,
perfect for pouring over tortillas or vegetables, all without dirtying a
dish, and with no pots and pans to clean!
First … Blend or Pulse your ingredients together.
Then … Remove the blade, twist on a Shaker/Steamer top (do not
put the blades in the microwave) and place the cup in the
microwave.
Cook until ready, then … Remove with an oven mitt and serve.
The single most important rule to remember for using the cups
in the microwave: Take off the blade! The blades have metal
in them and we all know that metal and microwaves don’t mix.
Never microwave food using the airtight lids, always use the
Shaker/Steamer Tops. Also, remember that the contents and the
cup will be hot, so always use an oven mitt.
Storing Leftovers in the Magic Bullet Cups
At Homeland Housewares, we understand that your
time is valuable; that is why we’ve made Stay-Fresh
Re-sealable Lids that twist right onto the Magic
Bullet cups. Now you can prepare, cook and store your
food all in the same vessel! No unnecessary dishes to
clean, no plastic wrap, foil or plastic containers to deal with … just
twist on a stay-fresh lid and pop your leftovers in the refrigerator.
You can even bring your leftovers to work or school, by just tossing
the sealed cup into your bag and go! Then at work, you can reheat
your leftovers in the microwave — all in the same cup!

Cleaning the Magic Bullet
Before you begin … The most important thing is to UNPLUG the
Power Base!
Everyone hates cleaning up, which is just one more reason the
Magic Bullet is so great. You can make and cook fresh homemade
spaghetti meat sauce (see recipe on Page 69) from scratch and only
use one tall Bullet cup! Imagine delicious, piping hot pasta sauces,
salsa, fresh soups and more, all prepared with no cutting boards, no
pots and pans, just a single cup and blade to put in the dishwasher.
It doesn’t get any easier than that.
Always unplug the Magic Bullet when cleaning or assembling.
Washing Magic Bullet Attachments
It is so easy … Just place any of the pieces (except for the Power
Base) on top shelf of the dishwasher, or hand wash with warm soapy
water and rinse.
Always make sure the gaskets are still inside after cleaning.
The heat from some dishwashers can cause them to become
loose and pop out.
Stubborn cleanup When you let ingredients dry in the Magic
Bullet, or when you’ve melted cheese in the cups, make your
cleanup a snap by filling the cup with soapy water and
microwaving it for one minute. That will loosen the stuck
ingredients and with a light scrub, you’ll be all done.
Then … Use a damp rag to wipe down the inside and outside of the
Power Base.
Sometimes the base gets so dirty … that the little white sliders
that activate the Magic Bullet get sticky. This can cause the motor to
continue to spin even after you’ve released the cup. When this
happens, start by UNPLUGGING the Power Base.
Then … Double-check that you’ve UNPLUGGED the Power Base,
and use a damp rag to soften up the gunk around the activators as
you work the activator buttons up and down until they move freely
again.
NEVER SUBMERGE THE POWER BASE IN WATER OR PLACE
IT IN DISHWASHER
Never put your hands or utensils near the moving
blade and never use your hands or utensils to press
the activator buttons down while the Power Base is
plugged in.
Cleaning the Magic Bullet Power Base
For the most part the Power Base doesn’t really get dirty, but if
you neglect to twist the blade onto the cup tightly, liquids can leak
out and get into the base and activator buttons. Here’s how to clean
it up.

When it’s time to whip up big batches of foods like pancakes,
milkshakes, or frozen drinks, the Magic Bullet Blender has all the
power and capacity of those expensive, bulky blenders without
taking up all that counter space. The Blender Lid has two pouring
spouts, one for straining and one for pouring, and a pop-out top, so
you can add ingredients as you blend. Plus, everything is
dishwasher-safe (top rack only), so cleanup is fast and easy.
Now you can make freshly squeezed juice every day of the week, at
home, without all of the added sugar found in many store-bought
juices and without the mess and big production that comes with
most traditional juicers. In the Magic Bullet Juicer, making
delicious, nutritious fresh juices like orange or pineapple, and instant
energy cocktails is a snap.
Assembling the Magic Bullet Blender
Just … Twist the Cross Blade onto the bottom of
the blender pitcher.
Then … Place the blender on the Magic Bullet base.
Using the Magic Bullet Blender
The Magic Bullet Blender is just like regular
blenders, without all the confusing buttons.
Simply … Place the assembled Blender onto the
Power Base.
Then … Push down on the Blender and twist
clockwise until the tabs lock under the lip of the Power Base (Lock
On mode).
And … Put on the Blender Lid and blend.
Never run the Magic Bullet for more than one minute at a
time, as it can cause permanent damage to the motor. If the
motor stops working, unplug the Power Base and let it cool for
a few hours before attempting to use it again. Your Magic Bullet has
an internal thermal breaker that shuts the unit off when it overheats.
Letting the thermal breaker cool down should allow it to reset.

Assembling the Magic Bullet Juicer
First … Twist the Cross Blade onto the bottom of the
Blender.
Then … Insert the Extractor down the center of the
Blender making sure to line the three notches up with the
three ribs on the inside of the Blender.
Next … Place the lid onto the Blender and align either
the straining pourer or regular pourer up to the spout.
Make sure the lid is locked on, it holds the Extractor
insert in place.
And then … Place the Blender on the Magic Bullet base.
Using the Magic Bullet Juicer
Before you begin … Select your juice ingredients, make sure they
are sized to fit into the Extractor and place them within arms reach
of your Magic Bullet Juicer.
When you’re ready to start juicing … Remove the pop-top from
the lid of the Blender, place the assembled Magic Bullet Juicer
onto the Power Base, press down and turn the Blender clockwise
until it is running in hands-free Lock On mode. To avoid jamming
the blades, which can cause serious motor damage, make
sure the motor is running BEFORE you add any ingredients
into the juicer.

Our team at Homeland Housewares has had the pleasure of
personally testing every single recipe suggestion in this cookbook.
Out of the thousands of delicious delicacies you can prepare in the
Magic Bullet, we’ve chosen our favorite “10 seconds or less” recipes
to share with you. We’ve added our notes, serving suggestions and
tips so you can get the most out of each recipe.
Push the ingredients … down into the blade with the Plunger tool.
The juice will accumulate in the pitcher around the Extractor insert.
Then … Pour the juice into a glass with the juicer assembled as is,
without removing or jostling the Extractor. Notice how the juice is
on the outside of the Extractor and the pulp is on the inside? You
need to be careful to keep the juice separate from the pulp. Pour the
juice out carefully.
If the blade stops in Lock On mode, unplug the Magic
Bullet immediately. Sometimes, especially when the motor is
coming up to speed, a hard ingredient, such as a carrot chunk,
can get stuck in the blade. If the blade stops, UNPLUG THE MAGIC
BULLET IMMEDIATELY and clear the blade before proceeding.
Running the machine when the blades are obstructed can ruin the
motor.
Never run the Magic Bullet for more than one minute; it can
cause permanent damage to the motor. If you still want more
juice after 60 seconds of juicing, simply stop for a few seconds,
then continue for another minute. If you do overheat the motor and it
stops, unplug the Power Base and let it rest for a few hours before
attempting to use it again.
The Magic Bullet is all about creating delicious meals, drinks and
snacks in 10 seconds or less, with virtually no clean up. During our
recipe creation and selection process, we discovered certain
ingredients made the 10 second recipes even easier, faster and
neater. Here they are:
Boiler Onions
Boiler onions are flavorful little onions that are about an inch to an
inch and a half in diameter. You can find them in the produce
section of most grocery stores. They are perfect for the Magic Bullet
because you can throw them in whole, no cutting board, no knife …
just toss them in the Magic Bullet cup and you’re ready to go. One
boiler onion (they range in size) is the equivalent of about 1/4 cup
of onion.
Pre-peeled Garlic In Jars
Some genius decided to pre-peel garlic and sell it in jars. You can
find this pre-peeled garlic in the produce section of most grocery
stores. When a recipe calls for a clove or two of garlic, just open up
the jar and toss them in the cup. All the flavor, without all the
work…it doesn’t get any easier!
Cherry Tomatoes
Cherry tomatoes are not only perfectly sized to throw right into the
Bullet Cups, they are extremely flavorful. Our recipes are based on
the cherry tomatoes that are about an inch in diameter. On average
about 4-6 cherry tomatoes equals a 1/4 cup of tomato.

Baby Carrots
Cutting and peeling carrots is tough work. We highly recommend
using the pre-peeled, baby size carrots that are available in the
produce section of most grocery stores. These tiny carrots are
sweet, tasty and perfectly sized for the Magic Bullet cups.
Why spend a fortune on mediocre store-bought dips when you can
make your own tantalizing party spreads in less than 10 seconds,
and for a fraction of the price. Each of these dips has been selected
for flavor, popularity and ease. Go ahead and call some friends, it’s

created a series of icons so, in a glance, you can learn about a
recipe. The key of icons used in this book can be found on page 10.
Seven-Second Salsa
For your convenience, we’ve also created an index that categorizes
the recipes by Fat-Free, Kid-Friendly and more. The index can be
found on Page 93.
We want you to try the recipes in this cookbook because, well, we’ve
devoured every one of them and know how good they are! We also
want to make sure you understand that with The Magic Bullet, the
possibilities are endless. Because everything is so quick and easy to
make, it’s the perfect device for experimenting.
Don’t hesitate to add or omit ingredients and if you want to vary a
recipe, or totally rework it … go for it. We encourage that type of
Magic Bullet bravery. Go ahead and create your very own Magic

No party is complete without salsa! This chunky, delicious blend is a
flavor fiesta. Your guests will be talking about it for weeks to come!
1-2 boiler onions or 1/4 of a regular sized onion (about 1/4 cup)
1/6 to 1/4 of a jalapeno pepper
8-10 cherry tomatoes or 1 regular size tomato (about 1/2 cup)
1-2 cloves garlic
small sprigs of cilantro (optional)
salt and pepper to taste
First … Place all ingredients, in the order they are listed, into the
Tall Cup. (You may have to cut the tomatoes a bit, depending on the
size you choose.)
Then … Twist on the Cross Blade and place the cup onto the
Power Base.
.
Next … Give it several quick Pulses. Salsa
should be chunky, so be careful not to
over-process it. Remember to apply a bit
of counter-clockwise pressure to the cup to
keep it from Locking On (See Pulse
technique on Page 17).
Repeat the quick Pulse technique ...
until you achieve a blended yet
chunky texture.

When you pour your fresh salsa in a bowl, you may notice the
power of the Magic Bullet has made it a little foamy. Don’t
panic — the foam is actually tiny air bubbles that go away
after a few minutes. If it bothers you, lay a paper towel down on top
of the salsa and gently blot … no more foam. Also, when you make
salsa with a knife, you typically seed the tomatoes first. Since we’re
throwing the tomatoes in whole, there may be more juice than you’re
used to. If so, just twist on the Shaker/Steamer Top and strain out
some of the extra liquid.
Hummus is best served cold, with warm triangles of pita
bread. The traditional way to serve it is to pour the hummus
into a bowl and drizzle it with olive oil, then sprinkle the top
with paprika.
Serve your salsa with tortilla chips, slices of Italian bread, or
as a dip for triangles of quesadilla (see recipe Page 43).
Chunkier Salsa. For even chunkier salsa, after you’re done
Pulsing, stir in some canned (drained) black beans and a bit of
canned corn — a fiesta for the taste buds!

And … Twist on the Cross Blade and quickly Pulse (Page 17) until

This dip is great, either chunky or smooth. If you want it
chunky, don’t overdo the Pulsing. Quickly Pulse, stop and let
the ingredients settle. Use the Tap technique (Page 19) to
speed up the settling process. Pulse again and repeat until you’ve
created the bean dip of your dreams!
This dip is great both warm and cold. If you go for the warm
version, try adding 1/4 cup of cheddar cheese to the
ingredients before you blend it. (If you don’t have room,
partially mix the ingredients, then add the cheese.) Take the blade
off, place the Shaker/Steamer Top on the cup and microwave for
about 2-3 minutes (until warm throughout). Give the dip another
quick Pulse or two, then serve immediately. The warm version goes
perfectly with nachos or sliced crusty Italian bread.
Use your favorite type of bean. Black beans can be
substituted with pinto beans, white beans, whatever you’re into.
Black bean sauce Add a cup of broth, then microwave to make
a perfect sauce for pouring over chicken or fish.

2 avocados
2-3 cloves garlic

4-6 cherry tomatoes or 1/2 regular size tomato (about 1/4 cup)
1-2 sprigs of fresh cilantro
1/6 of a jalapeño pepper (optional)
salt and pepper to taste
First … Scoop out the meat of the avocados, discarding the pit, and
place it in the Short Cup.
Next … Place the remaining ingredients, in the order they are listed,
into the Short Cup. (You may have to cut the tomatoes a bit,
depending on the size you choose.)
Then … Twist on the Cross Blade and place the cup onto the

And … Give it 3 or 4 quick Pulses until all the ingredients are
chopped and blended. Make sure to apply a bit of counter-clockwise
pressure to the cup to keep it from Locking On.
(See Pulse technique on Page 17).
Since guacamole is thick, you may need to
use the Tap technique (Page 19) to make
sure everything gets completely chopped.

Then … Twist off the blade, and twist on a Shaker/Steamer Top.
Microwave … on high for about 1 1/2 minutes, until cheese is fully
melted.
Pour … over tortilla chips. Serve immediately.
You can add anything you want to the top of your nachos.

Even the Magic Bullet can’t defy the laws of physics, so if

salad that has accumulated at the bottom, put it in a bowl, then
continue Pulsing the remaining ingredients. Once everything is
chopped, you can add it all back together in the cup and give it a
quick Pulse to mix everything together.

Chocolate Mousse
Cheesecake
Delicious cheesecake has never been easier. In seconds, you can
prepare the fluffiest, creamiest cheesecake to ever touch a fork!
1 (8 oz.) package cream cheese
2 eggs
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1 graham cracker crust
Before you get started … Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
First … Add all the ingredients (except crust) to the Tall Cup and
mix until smooth.
Then … Pour the ingredients into the graham cracker crust.
And … Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes (until set).
You will think you died and went to Heaven ... all for about 4
seconds worth of effort. This rich and tantalizingly decadent dessert
will impress everyone who tastes it.
1/4 cup heavy cream
2 Tbs. chocolate syrup
First … Add the ingredients to the Short Cup and blend until
smooth.
Then … Serve.
This makes one serving. For more servings, double or triple the
recipe.
Using the Flat Blade, grind a few chocolate chips up in the
Short Cup. Twist on a Shaker/Steamer Top and sprinkle a
little on the top of your chocolate mousse. You can also whip
some cream (Page 26) and add a dollop to the top of each
serving of chocolate mousse.
Fruit toppings are always a scrumptious way to top a
cheesecake. To make Strawberry Cheesecake, or Blueberry
Cheesecake, fill the Short Cup up 3/4 of the way with your
fresh strawberries or blueberries, add 1-2 tablespoons of sugar,
and blend until you achieve a chunky syrup consistency. Pour that
over the top of the cooled cheesecake (at least an hour in the
refrigerator), then add a layer of sliced strawberries, or whole
blueberries, to the top. Chill for a few hours, then serve.
Totally easy cherry topping Just let your cheesecake cool
for at least an hour in the refrigerator, then add a can of cherry
topping to the top of it. Totally delicious and virtually effortless
Cherry Cheesecake!

There is something about freshly squeezed fruit and vegetable juices
— they’re good for the soul. And now with the Magic Bullet, it’s easy
to enjoy fresh juice every day of the week.
Fresh Pineapple Juice
Please enjoy some of our favorites, then experiment to your heart’s
content. Your perfect blend of fruits or vegetables — or both — is
out there. You just have to find it. When you do, feel free to share it

Fresh Orange Juice
Straight from the heavens, this 100% pure, fresh orange juice is
absolutely divine and so easy to make, you can have it every
morning of the week.
3 quartered ripe oranges (peeled)
Before you get started … Assemble the Juicer (Page 31) and
make sure your ingredients are within arms reach and sized to fit
into the pop-top of the Blender Lid.
Then … Put the Magic Bullet into Lock On mode.
And … Add the oranges into the Extractor and push down with the
plunger.
Then … Pour the juice into a glass (keep the lid of the blender on
while pouring).
Never run the Magic Bullet for more than a minute, it can
cause permanent damage to the motor. If you do overheat the
motor and it stops, unplug the Power Base and let it rest for
a few hours before attempting to use it again.

Refreshing, tangy 100% natural pineapple juice … life doesn’t get
much better!
1/3 of a fresh pineapple (the rind is ok)
Before you get started … Assemble the Juicer (Page 31) and
make sure your ingredients are within arms reach and sized to fit
into the pop-top of the Blender Lid.
Then … Put the Magic Bullet into Lock On mode.
And … Add the pineapple into the Extractor and push down with
the plunger.
Then … Pour the juice into a glass (keep the lid of the blender on
while pouring).
If the blade stops in Lock On mode, unplug the Magic
Bullet immediately. Sometimes, especially when the motor is
coming up to speed, a hard ingredient, such as a carrot chunk,
can get stuck in the blade. If the blade stops, UNPLUG THE MAGIC
BULLET IMMEDIATELY. Give the Bullet a shake to jostle the
ingredients, then start again. If it doesn’t start to blend, unplug, take
the blade/cup off and give the ingredients a good shake to unclog
the blade. If the blade still seems obstructed, twist off the blade and
carefully (it’s sharp) spin the blade manually. Once the blade will
spin, plug the Magic Bullet back in and try again —
you should be good to go.
Never run the Magic Bullet for more
than one minute, it can cause
permanent damage to the motor.
If you do overheat the motor and it
stops, unplug the Power Base and let it
rest for a few hours before attempting to
use it again.
