Using the Pulse Feature
To pulse the ingredients in the blender, move the On/Off/Pulse Switch to
the "Pulse" position and hold it for the desired length of time. The
switch will instantly return to the "Off" position when released and the
blender will stop. When pulsed, the blender operates at low speed for
maximum control. The Pulse feature is great for blending jobs which
require a delicate touch.

Ingredients can be added to the blender by removing the ingredient
cap from the lid. To remove, rotate the cap counter-clockwise
and lift. Featuring 1 and 2 oz. (30 and 60 ml) volume lines, the cap
can be used as a convenient measuring cup.
NOTE: When operating the blender at higher speeds, with a full jar, or
with hot contents, stop blender before adding ingredients.
