General safety instructions
Risk of electric shock!
The power cord must not be damaged. Never replace a damaged power cord, instead
contact customer services (see "Guarantee Information" on page 21). There is a risk of
electric shock in the case of damaged power cords.
Do not open the blender housing - it contains no serviceable parts. Opening the housing
can expose you to the risk of electric shock.
If you notice any smoke, unusual noises or strange smells, switch off the device
immediately and remove the plug from the wall socket. If this occurs, do not continue to
use the device and have it checked out by an expert. Never inhale smoke from a
possible device fire. If you do inadvertently inhale smoke, seek medical attention. Smoke
inhalation can be damaging to your health.
Make sure that the power cord cannot be damaged by sharp edges or hot spots. After
use, always wind the power cord back around the cord wrap (7) underneath the motor
unit (6).
Make sure that the power cord cannot get crushed or squashed.
The appliance must always be disconnected from the mains when left unsupervised and
before assembly, disassembly or cleaning.
When disconnecting the power supply, always pull on the plug and never on the cable
itself.
If you notice visible damage to the blender or the power cord, switch the device off,
disconnect the mains plug from the wall outlet and contact customer services (see
"Guarantee Information" on page 21).
Only connect the blender to a properly installed, easily accessible wall outlet whose
mains voltage corresponds to that on the rating plate. After connecting the device, the
wall outlet must still be easily accessible so that you can remove the mains plug quickly in
the event of an emergency.
Never immerse the motor unit (6), the power cord (5) or the mains plug in water or other
liquids. If liquid does penetrate the motor unit (6), disconnect the mains plug from the
wall outlet immediately and contact customer services (see "Guarantee Information" on
page 21).
Warning about property damage
Do not leave the blender unattended while running so you can react quickly in the case
of hazards.

Risk of overheating and fire
Only ever operate the blender with the blender jug filled and never empty.
Do not use the appliance in direct sunlight or near heating appliances (heaters, stoves,
ovens etc.).
Do not place hot or boiling foods in the blender jug. Otherwise the motor unit could
overheat or the blender jug glass could crack. Always leave hot or boiling foods to cool
down first before adding them to the blender jug (3) and processing with the blender.
Injur
y
Never open the lid (2) while the blender is running. Otherwise, rotating bits of food may
be ejected with great force.
Never reach into the blender jug while the blender is running because the cutting blade
is extremely sharp and rotates quickly.
Never insert cutlery or other stirring implements into the blender jug while the blender is
running as the cutting blades rotate very quickly and may cause considerable damage
and injury.
Before you start
Unpack the device. First check whether all the parts are complete and undamaged. If any items are
missing or damaged, please phone our hotline (see "Guarantee Information" on page 21). Keep the
packaging material away from children and dispose of appropriately.
Getting started
