Speed Control Guide - Diamond Blender

Speed Control Guide - Diamond Blender

The Blender pitcher ingredient cup can be used to measure and add ingredients. Remove cup and add ingredients at 1 Stir, 2 Chop, or 3 Mix speeds. When operating at higher speeds with a full pitcher or with hot contents, stop the Blender and add ingredients.

The Soft Start blending feature automatically starts the Blender at a lower speed to draw ingredients into the blades, then quickly increases to the selected speed for optimal performance. The Soft Start blending feature only works when a speed is selected and does not work with the Pulse mode or Crush Ice features.
