19 SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS RISK OF BURNS •  NEVER process hot ingredients (solid or liquid) in the Blendcups or mill attachment, as blending hot foods in a lidded jug can lead to a build- up of pressure, forcing out scalding steam or liquids. •  Processing hot foods in the 1.8l jug: blending hot ingredients at high speed can lead to a build-up of pressure, forcing out scalding steam or liquids. Always take care when pouring in a hot liquid, as it may suddenly boil up and escape from the jug. •  Never introduce hot ingredients (solid or liquid) if they are over 60 °C in temperature. Always make sure the lid is firmly fitted but the measuring cap is only loosely positioned, to allow any steam to escape. Always use the SOUP programme or start at a low speed and gradually increase it. Never use the PULSE button. MAINS CONNECTION •  Your appliance must be connected to an earthed socket with the original power cord. •  Check that the voltage indicated on its identification plate corresponds to the voltage of your mains supply. •  Never allow the power cord to dangle over the edge of your worktop or counter, and make sure that it does not come into contact with hot surfaces. AFTER-SALES SERVICE •  If the power cord has been damaged, it must be replaced by the manufacturer, a Magimix-approved service agent or a similarly qualified person, in order to avoid all risks. •  The use of parts that are not recommended or sold by Magimix may result in injury, fire or electric shock.

25 USING YOUR BLENDER Assemble the base Assemble the jug Blend Place the seal on the rim of the blade assembly, making sure it is completely flat. Place the upright jug on the motor unit. Select a speed or programme. Press AUTO. Position the blade assembly on the underside of the jug. Add the ingredients (max. 1.8l). If necessary, use the spatula to help with the mixing. Screw the holder tightly onto the blender jug. Push the lid down firmly into place. Loosely position the cap. Wait until the blades have completely stopped moving before opening. 1 2 3 1 2

26 ADVICE Ice / frozen or sticky ingredients such as honey, banana and avocado For the best possible result: • Cut the food into chunks measuring approx. 2cm. • Coarsely chop the herbs or leaves before adding them. • Always add the ingredients in the order specified in the recipe. •  When processing thick mixtures, always start at a low speed, otherwise the food will stick to the sides and not come into contact with the blades. If necessary, add a little liquid and use the spatula. •  To add ingredients, either remove the measuring cap or stop the machine and remove the lid. •  Never run your blender if the jug is empty. To process dry ingredients such as nuts and spices, we recommend using the mill attachment, which has a specially designed blade assembly. Fresh fruit and vegetables except for banana and avocado Leaves, herbs such as spinach and fresh herbs Hard or dry ingredients such as cereals, nuts and carrots Liquids such as water, milk and fruit juice Never fill above the MAX mark. Never add solid or liquid ingredients if they are above 60°C in temperature.

27 ADVICE Tips •  Hot soups: wait for the ingredients to cool to 60°C (tasting temperature) before blending. Make sure that the measuring cap is only loosely positioned on the lid, to allow any steam to escape. Either use the SOUP programme or start at a low speed and gradually increase it. Never use the PULSE button. •  Crushed ice: the ICE function reduces ice cubes to a very fine, snow-like pow- der. If you want more coarsely crushed ice, put a small number of ice cubes (100/150g max.) in the jug and use the PULSE button. •  To fold ingredients into a mixture without chopping them (e.g. chocolate chips in a cake mixture), add them at the end and run your blender for a further 5-10 seconds at a slow speed (0.5). •  Using frozen fruit: when fruit come out of the freezer it sometimes forms a solid block. Break this block into cubes measuring roughly 2cm before putting in the jug, to avoid damaging your blender. •  To rescue a lumpy sauce, blend it for 15 s at Speed 3. Automatic overload failsafe Your appliance is fitted with a safety system that cuts the motor if it is overloaded or has been running for too long. The indicator light then starts to flash. • Turn to the selector to 0 and unplug your appliance. • Wait for about 30 minutes before restarting your blender. • Reduce the amount of ingredients in the jug and/or add some liquid.

Screw the holder tightly onto the mill attachment. Select a speed and press AUTO 1 2 •  Instant crumble: crush digestives or butter biscuits and divide between fruit salad / ice cream verrines. •  Icing sugar: pour in 200g caster sugar. Blend for 1 min at Speed 4. For an even finer consistency, blend for a further minute. •  Cake icing: pour 200g icing sugar into the jug with 1 egg white. Blend for 20 s at Speed 1.

31 BLENDCUPS CITRUS PRESS Slot the citrus press onto the lid. Turn until it locks into place. Press then remove. Tips and advice •  Run at a low speed for the first few seconds, until all the ingredients are caught up in the blades, then gradually increase the speed. •  Never run the blender continuously for more than 1 minute, otherwise the ingredients may heat up and pressure may build up inside the jug. •  If blending is difficult, reduce either the speed or the amount being processed. If the preparation is thick, add some liquid (without going above the MAX mark). •  Dense or sticky (e.g. nut-based) preparations tend to stick to the sides. If this happens, switch the blender off, wait until the blades have come to a complete standstill and shake the jug downwards to send the ingredients back towards the blades. •  The base of the jug is shaped to fit the cupholder in your vehicle.

CLEANING 32 Automatic cleaning programme As soon as you have finished using your appliance, fill the jug up halfway with warm water + few drops of washing-up liquid. Close the lid tightly, select the CLEAN programme and press AUTO. Unscrew the holder with the aid of the spatula. The top of the measuring cap can be removed. Check that the locking pins slide smoothly, and clean them if necessary. Thorough cleaning • Unplug the appliance and remove all the parts, not forgetting the seals. •  All the parts are dishwasher safe (except motor unit): use the short cycle and place all the small parts on the upper rack. •  For the best results, we nevertheless recommend washing the lid and the seals by hand. •  Never leave the blade assembly to soak, and check that the blades move freely before reassembling. •  Clean the base with a damp cloth. AUTO Electrical and electronic goods at the end of their lifetime It is against European law to treat electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) as regular household waste. Your appliance contains many materials that can be recovered or recycled. It should be taken to a WEEE collection point. For more details about collection points, please contact your local council or your household waste recycling centre. You can also take your appliance to an electrical goods store.

33 TROUBLESHOOTING Problem Solution The lid is stiff As the lid is designed to be watertight, it can be a little hard to fit, especially if the appliance is new or has not been used for a long time. Pour a little vegetable oil onto some kitchen paper and rub the seal Flashing light Jug or attachment incorrectly positioned Motor overload: switch your appliance off and wait for 30 minutes before switching it back on Your appliance will not start Check the plug/socket If the white indicator light is on, reposition the jug, then select a speed or programme and press AUTO The ingredients are not properly mixed/blended Add some liquid Always add the ingredients in the right order Glass jug: use the spatula Cut the ingredients into smaller pieces Leaking base Check that the blade assembly seal is correctly positioned Check that the support is screwed on properly to the base of the jug Glass jug: use the spatula Desserts programme does not work Frozen fruit: break into cubes measuring roughly 2cm before putting in the blender, to avoid damaging your appliance Do not exceed the blender capacity and add a little liquid Use the spatula The motor smells There may be a faint smell when you use your appliance for the first time or if the motor is overloaded. This poses absolutely no risk, and the smell will go away after you have used your appliance a few times. Allow the motor to cool for 30 minutes before restarting it Stained plastic parts Some ingredients, such as curry and carrots, may give rise to some staining. Pour some vegetable oil onto kitchen paper and rub the parts before adding the ingredients The mixture tends to stick to the sides Add some liquid Use the spatula, start at a low speed and gradually increase it
