Function Guide/Settings - Pro Line Blender

Function Guide/Settings - Pro Line Blender

The Blender has three preset recipe programs namely Juice, Smoothies, and Soups. It also features Variable Speed and Pulse functions that allow you to customize your blending for any recipe you make.
The three preset recipe programs were each developed based on typical recipes of that kind. You might find that not all recipes are exactly the same, and sometimes a recipe might blend more to your preference on a program that is not obvious. For example, when making a smoothie, you may prefer the finer texture that the Juice program creates. We encourage you to experiment to find the best program for your favorite recipes.
