Before using your Blender for the first time

  • Be sure the countertop beneath the Blender and surrounding areas are dry and clean.

IMPORTANT: When moving your Blender, always support/lift from the Blender base. The Base will become disengaged from Jar if carried by Blender Jar or Blender Jar handle only.

Using the Crush Ice Function

When the Crush Ice function is selected, the Blender will automatically pulse for 30 seconds at staggered intervals at the optimal speed for crushing ice or other ingredients.

  1. Put ice cubes into the pitcher and firmly place the lid. Use up to 1/2 tray of cubed ice.

  1. Press POWER, then press Crush Ice. The indicator light will stay lit. When finished, press the Power to stop.

TIP: Process up to 1/2 standard ice cube tray or 6 to 7 standard ice cubes at a time. Occasional stirring with a spatula will be helpful only when Blender is off. The Crush Ice feature has been optimized to crush and chop ice without adding any liquid ingredients.

Using Pulse Mode

  1. Put ingredients in a pitcher and firmly place the lid.

  1. Press POWER, then press and hold the Pulse button for the desired amount of blending time. Release the button to stop.

IMPORTANT: Allow the Blender to fully stop before removing the Lid, Blender Jar, or pouring out your blended ingredients.
