Before first use
•
All parts of the blender need to be thoroughly cleaned before being used for the first time
(see “cleaning” section).
Assembly of the glass jug
•
Turn the glass jug upside down on a flat bench or table. Place the press ring on the jug and
press down until it clicks into place.
•
Place the sealing ring on the glass jug bottom opening.
•
Place the blade assembly on the jug, on top of the sealing ring, with the blades to the inside
of the jug.
•
Mount the jug base onto the glass jug and turn the jug base unit in a clockwise direction
until it is tightly fixed.
•
Turn the jug right way up.
Inserting the glass jug
•
Check that the speed selector dial is set to ‘0’ off.
•
Place the jug assembly onto the motor unit, ensuring it is seated correctly.
Operating the blender
•
Place the ingredients you wish to blend into the glass jug.
•
Fit the lid onto the jug, aligning the square tab with the handle and round tab with the
pouring spout. Press down firmly.
•
Insert the measuring cap into the opening of the lid, and turn it in a clockwise direction until
it locks.
•
Place your hand on top of the blender jug lid to hold the jug steady. Switch the motor unit on
to the desired speed or pulse setting using the speed selector dial.
NOTE: Always place your hand on top of the blender jug lid to hold the jug steady when you are
operating the device.
SPEED SELECTOR DIAL
‘1’ Position - For light usage with liquids
‘2’ Position - For more solid consistency (E.g. mixing liquids and solid foodstuffs)
‘P’ Position - For ice crushing & short pulses at high speed.
NOTE: You have to turn the ‘P’ pulse switch repeatedly
‘0’ Position - Off.
Useful tips
•
When pureeing solid ingredients, place and blend small portions in the glass jug at a time,
gradually adding more ingredients.
•
When processing solid ingredients, cut them into small pieces (2-3cm) first.
•
When blending liquids into solid ingredients, start off first with a small amount of liquid,
gradually adding more liquid through the lid opening.
•
Always place your hand on top of the blender jug lid to hold the jug steady when you are
operating the appliance.
•
Be careful when processing hot liquids.
•
For stirring solid or very thick liquid ingredients it is recommended that you use the blender
set to ‘P’ pulse setting mode to prevent the blades from becoming stuck.

liquid.
3. Do not use in the bathroom or near any source of water.
4. Do not use outdoors.

9. Do not operate any appliance with a damaged cord or plug or after the appliance has malfunctioned,
or has been dropped or damaged in any manner. Contact customer service for replacement,
examination, repair or adjustment.
10.There are no user serviceable parts. If the power cord is damaged, it must be replaced by the
manufacturer or similarly qualified person in order to avoid a hazard.
11. The motor must always be switched off before connecting to the mains supply.
12.Cutting blades are very sharp. Handle the blender and blade assembly with extreme care and
caution when empting the jug and during cleaning.
