Hints For Best Use

Processing hot foods or liquids in the blender may cause hot liquid to spurt out when the cover is removed. Always remove the filler-cap of the cover before blending hot foods or liquids.

To add foods when blender is operating, remove the filler-cap from container cover and add ingredients through the opening.

If blending action stops during blending or ingredients stick to sides of the jar, turn blender OFF. Remove cover and use a rubber spatula to push mixture toward blades.

Do not try to mash potatoes, mix stiff dough, whip egg whites, grind raw meat, or extract juices from fruits and vegetables. The blender is not made to perform these tasks.

Do not store food or liquids in the blender jar.
