Important Safeguards

When using electrical appliances, the following basic safety precautions should always be adhered to :

Read all instructions.
Avoid electrical shock: do not put cord plug, base, or motor in water or other liquid; never put a wet cord into a socket, or handle with wet hands; and never immerse motor / base into water, wipe with a damp cloth only and dry promptly.
Close supervision is necessary when any appliance is used by or near children.
Unplug from outlet when not in use, before using the parts (putting on or taking off) and before cleaning.
Avoid contact with moving parts.
Do not operate any appliance with a damaged cord or plug. If the appliance malfunctions, is dropped, or damaged in any manner. return appliance to TRIBEST or authorized service facility for repair.
Only use attachments sold by TRIBEST with the motor base.
Do not let cord hang over edge of table or counter, or touch the stove or other hot surfaces.
A rubber spatula is recommended to avoid scratching the containers.
Blades are sharp, handle carefully.
To avoid injury properly attach the cutting unit blades to the base.
Do not blend boiling or hot liquids(over 40C) in the containers.
Plug cord into wall outlet first, then operate blender.
To disconnect, take container off, then remove plug from wall outlet. Only use the appliance for its intended purpose.
Do not operate while driving a vehicle.
Always use on a level, sturdy surface.
Wash container when finished with food preparation / consumption for easier cleaning.
Wash in warm water, do not put any parts in the dish washer, boiling, or hot water (exceeding 40C).
Do not operate machine for over one minute (60 seconds). Stop machine and let rest for a minute and resume blending if necessary.
Store the blender containers with either the lid or the blade. Make sure the parts are thoroughly dry.

Operating Guidelines

Plug the power cord into desired outlet (wall or inverter).
Fill the Container with desired ingredients
      Blending : at least 1/4-cup liquid for any recipe-up to 1 1/4-cup maximum liquid
      Grinding : at least 1/4-cup for any recipe-up to 1/2-cup maximum
Cover and close tightly the Blender/Grinder Blade onto Blending/Grinding Container, invert and place into Motor Base.
Turn Blender/Grinder to fit into small notch (groove), once in place, press down. For pulsing, press down and release. For continuous use, press down and turn Blender/Grinder to the right (clockwise) until you hear a click.
Machine will stay on until you press down and turn to the left (counterclockwise). This stops the Blending/Grinding.
Lift Blender/Grinder top off and turn it onto its top side, to open the Blade unit. Pour into appropriate serving container, or drink right out of the Blender Container.
Rinse parts, and store for next use.

Cleaning and Storage

Keep your appliance ready for use on the kitchen counter.
When it is not being used, leave it unplugged.
Store blades in a convenient, safe place out of children's reach as you would with sharp knives.

All parts except the motor base are hand washable (water temperature should not exceed 104 F. To simplify cleaning, rinse blending/grinding Containers and Blades immediately after use so food does not dry on them.

When you wash the Blades by hand, do it carefully. Avoid leaving them in soapy water, where they may disappear from sight.

The Blending/Grinding Container is made of a strong and clear plastic polycarbonate with high-impact resistance. Its smooth surface will look new for years when properly maintained. Keep a sponge handy as you work and wipe spills from base. Do not use abrasive cleaners on base.

The rubber feet on the bottom of the motor base will keep the Blender from moving on most work surfaces when the machine is processing heavy loads. Clean the rubber feet regularly. When the rubber feet are dirty, the machine could move on counter. If feet leave spots on the counter, spray with spot remover and wipe with a damp sponge. If any trace of spot remains, repeat procedure and wipe the area with a damp sponge and non-abrasive cleaner.
