Clean the motor housing clean with a damp, soft cloth. Do not use abrasive cleaners or sharp and hard brushes and do not clean the appliance in the dishwasher. Fill the blender with warm water and some detergent immediately after use. Briefly run the blender, as described in Use. Subsequently rinse the blender bowl, lid and cap with clean water and dry them. The bottom closure with the blade can be screwed off in order to clean it. To do so, turn the bottom closure counter-clockwise. Remove the blade. Clean the blade with a brush. Make sure that the blade with the seal is placed back in the correct place in the bottom closure. Place the bottom closure with seal and blade into the blender bowl from underneath Turning clockwise, tightly close the bottom closure. If the safety switch on the housing can no longer be operated with the contact pin, the bottom closure has not been properly screwed on. If needed, tighten it further.
Store the power cord in the appropriate storage space in the base of the blender.
This depends on the quantity and ingredients, but is always very short. The average time for mixing is approximately 30-60 seconds.
Never open the lid when the appliance is turned on. If you have switched it off, wait to open the lid until the blade stops completely. Gradually increase the mixing speed, instead of switching the appliance on the highest speed from the beginning.
The pieces you are trying to mix are probably too big or too hard. Reduce the size or amount of food and add more fluid, or slowly increase the speed.
If you're using the blender, you can remove the small cap to add ingredients.
It is quite normal for a new appliance to produce an unpleasant smell or some smoke the first few times it is put to use. This phenomenon will disappear after you have used the appliance several times. The appliance can also emit an unpleasant odour or smoke if it is used for excessively long periods. When this happens, switch off the appliance and let it cool for 60 minutes.
