ELECTRICAL CONNECTION (U.K. ONLY)
A) If your appliance comes fitted with a plug, it will incorporate a 13 Amp fuse. If it does not fit your socket, the plug should
be cut off from the mains lead, and on appropriate plug fitted, as below. warning: Very carefully dispose of the cut off
plug after removing the fuse: do not insert in a 13 Amp socket elsewhere in the house as this could cause a shock
hazard. With alternative plugs not incorporating a fuse, the circuit must be protected by a 15 Amp fuse. If the plug is
a moulded-on type, the fuse cover must be re-fitted when changing the fuse using a 13 Amp Asta approved fuse to BS
1362. In the event of losing the fuse cover, the plug must NOT be used until a replacement fuse cover can be obtained
from your nearest electrical dealer. The colour of the correct replacement fuse cover is that as marked on the base of the
plug.
B) If your appliance is not fitted with a plug, please follow the instructins provided below:

BEFORE USE
Before using the appliance for the first time, wash
all accessories thoroughly. Take care when handling
the blades as they are sharp. Wipe the motor base
with a damp cloth.
Never immerse the motor base in water!
Check that the mains supply voltage corresponds to
the voltage indicated on the rating plate.
HOW TO USE THE BLENDER
• PLACE THE APPLIANCE ON A DRY FLAT SUR-
FACE. DO NOT PLUG THE APPLIANCE INTO
THE MAINS UNTIL ALL ACCESSORIES HAVE
BEEN CORRECTLY FITTED.
• Place the blender jar on the motor base.
• Pour the ingredients into the jar.
This may be done by:
1. Removing the entire lid (A+B) by rotating
anticlockwise;
2. Using the lid (B) (fig. 2);
• The appliance is supplied with a handy measu-
re (A) with a hole for adding, for example,
drops of flavouring or essence without opening
the lid. If you turn the measure (A) upside down
and close the hole, it can also be used as a
measure for oil or similar.
Important:
Never use the appliance for more than 1 minute
consecutively. Pause for 4 minutes between one
cycle and the next and use for a maximum of five
cycles. The appliance must then be left to cool
down.
• Cut solid food into cubes and add water.
• Place the lid (B) on the jar.
• Plug into the mains.
• To start processing the ingredients, just move
the slide (E) to select the desired speed.
When the ingredients have reached the requi-
red consistency, move the slide back to the (0)
position.
• Before cleaning, always unplug from the
mains.
USING THE "P" FUNCTION
The "P" (pulse) function improves control for short
periods of processing.
Position the slide (E) in the "P" position and press
the button (F) intermittently until you have completed
processing.
The appliance functions while the (F) button is pres-
sed.
CLEANING THE APPLIANCE
NEVER IMMERSE the motor base in water!
Make sure the appliance is unplugged from the
mains socket.
• Remains of the ingredients being processed
must be removed with a spatula.
• Half fill the blender jar with lukewarm water.
Operate the appliance for a few seconds then
empty the jar.
Repeat the operation if possible.
The blender jar and all plastic components
must not be washed in the dishwasher or in
boiling water.
• Take care when handling the glass jar to avoid
violent impact.
For more thorough cleaning, the base of the jar
can be removed by turning the ring on the bot-
tom. After cleaning, replace the base and screw
on.
• Clean the motor base and power cable with a
damp cloth or sponge.
Dry thoroughly with a soft cloth.
• Wrap the power cable carefully around the bot-
tom of the motor base.
TIPS
1. General
• Add the ingredients to the jar a little at a time
for best results and to avoid them overflowing.
• Do not fill the jar more than two thirds full. The
movement of the blades will increase the volume
of the ingredients. Recipes using large quantities
of ingredients should be processed in batches.
• Unless the recipe specifies otherwise, add liquid
ingredients before solid ingredients. The liquid
will facilitate processing and allow you to use a
slower speed. Always add a cup of water befo-
re processing ice.
• Blend for 5 – 30 seconds then check the consi-
stency.
Continue this procedure until the desired consi-
stency is obtained.
Do not over process the ingredients as this
would change the consistency of the recipe.
• Always use the blender with the lid firmly on.
• NEVER remove the jar from the motor base
while the appliance is in operation.
• To avoid the risk of injury or damage to the
appliance, never place hands or implements in
the jar while the appliance is in operation.
A spatula can be used when the appliance is
off.

2. Solid ingredients
• Take special care when preparing solid ingre-
dients. Interrupt processing from time to time,
remove the lid and scrape the ingredients from
the sides of the jar using a knife. Replace the lid
and continue processing.
If this makes processing excessively lengthy,
select a higher speed.
• To add solid ingredients to the jar, remove the
measure from the lid and add them a little at a
time through the hole. Vegetables and cheese
should always be diced before being placed in
the jar.
3. Processing hot ingredients
Always remove the measure from the lid befo-
re preparing hot recipes.
• Add hot ingredients slowly, a maximum of two
cups at a time, through the hole in the lid.
HOW TO USE THE COFFEE MILL
• Place the motor base (D) on a dry flat surface.
• Pour the required quantity of coffee beans into
the coffee beans container (G) making sure
never to fill it more than half full.
• Place the coffee beans container base (H) on the
coffee beans container (G) and screw on fully
(Fig. 4).
• Turn the coffee mill upside down and attach to
the motor base (Fig. 5).
• Plug into the mains.
• To use the coffee mill, simply select the required
speed with the slide (E). When the coffee is per-
fectly ground, move the slide back to the "0"
position again and the appliance stops. While
the coffee is being ground, press down on the
glass container.
• After grinding the coffee, unplug from the mains
socket and remove the coffee mill.
TIPS
• For the most fragrant coffee, grind just the right
amount of coffee as you need it.
• Never fill the beans container more than half
full.
As a rough guide, use a tablespoon of beans
per cup (e.g. 4 tablespoons of beans for 4 cups
of coffee).
As you use the mill, you will of course discover
the optimum quantities for your own personal
taste.
• After grinding coffee, always wait at least one
minute before using the coffee mill again to
avoid the appliance overheating.
• The coffee mill must be used to grind coffee
beans only.
CLEANING
• Unplug from the mains.
• Extract the coffee mill by pulling it upwards.
Wash the beans container and base with water
and mild washing up liquid. Rinse thoroughly
and dry.
• THE GLASS CONTAINER AND PLASTIC BASE
MUST NEVER BE WASHED IN A DISHWASHER
OR WITH BOILING WATER.
