When using electrical appliances, basic safety precautions should always
be followed, including the following.
Read all instructions.
To protect against risk of electrical shock, do not put base, cord or plug
in water or other liquid.
Close supervision is necessary when any appliance is used by or near
Unplug from outlet when not in use, before putting on or taking off
parts, and before cleaning.
Avoid contacting moving parts.
Do not operate any appliance with a damaged cord or plug or after
the appliance malfunctions or is dropped or damaged in any manner.
Return the appliance to the nearest authorized service facility for
examination, repair, or electrical or mechanical adjustment. Or, call the
appropriate toll-free number listed on the cover of this manual.
❑ The use of attachments, including canning jars, not recommended by the
manufacturer may cause fire, electric shock or injury.
Do not use outdoors.
Do not let cord hang over edge of table or counter.
Keep hands and utensils away from moving blades or discs while
processing food to prevent the possibility of severe personal injury or
damage to the food processor. A scraper may be used, but it must be
used only when the food processor is not running.
Blades are sharp. Handle carefully.
To reduce the risk of injury, never place cutting blade or discs on base
without first putting bowl properly in place.
Be certain cover is securely locked in place before operating appliance.
Never feed food into chute by hand. Always use food pusher.
Do not attempt to defeat the cover interlock mechanism.
Do not use appliance for other than intended use.
❑ Keep hands and utensils out of container while blending to reduce the risk
of severe injury to persons or damage to the blender. A scraper may be
used, but must be used only when the blender is not running.
❑ Blades are sharp. Handle carefully.
❑ To reduce the risk of injury, never place cutter-assembly blades on base
without jar properly attached.
This appliance has a polarized plug (one blade is wider than the other). To reduce
the risk of electric shock, this plug is intended to fit into a polarized outlet only one
way. If the plug does not fit fully into the outlet, reverse the plug. If it still does not fit,
contact a qualified electrician. Do not attempt to modify the plug in any way.
The cord of this appliance was selected to reduce the possibility of tangling in or
tripping over a longer cord. If more length is needed, use an extension cord rated
no less than 15 amperes. (For 220 volts rated products, use an extension cord
rated no less than 6 amperes.) When using an extension cord, do not let it drape
over the working area or dangle where someone could accidentally trip over it.
Handle cord carefully for longer life; avoid jerking or straining it at outlet and
appliance connections. The maximum rating is based on the chopping blade;
other attachments may draw significantly less power.
If the power supply cord is damaged, it should be replaced by qualified
personnel or in Latin America by an authorized service center.
❑ Always operate blender with cover in place.
❑ When blending hot liquids, remove center piece of two-piece cover.
