Crushing Ice

To get ice that is almost the consistency
of snow, follow these guidelines.
• Ice must come directly from the
freezer. Ice that has been stored in
an ice chest or ice bucket has already
started to melt. That small amount of
moisture will not make good dry,
crushed ice.
• Crush 3 to 4 cups of ice at a time.
• Use the PULSE/OFF button. Press
and release the button allowing the
blender to come to a complete stop
before pressing again. This allows the
chunks of ice to fall on the blades
for consistent crushing of the ice.

Blending Techniques

Bread Crumbs
Tear bread into pieces and put in
blender jar. PULSE about 15 times.
Cookie or Cracker Crumbs
Break cookies or crackers into pieces
and put in blender jar. Process 1 cup
at a time. PULSE about 10 times. For
a finer consistency, process on Speed 4
a few seconds after Pulsing.
Chopped Nuts
Place 1 cup nuts in blender jar. PULSE a
few times. Remove jar from base and
shake to redistribute pieces. Place jar
on base and PULSE a few more times.
Chopping Vegetables
Cabbage, carrots, onion, green pepper,
potatoes. Place 2 cups of chunks in
blender jar. Cover with water. PULSE
until desired chopped consistency is
reached. Pour into colander to drain
off water.
Frozen Juice Concentrate
Place 6 ounces frozen juice in blender
jar with recommended amount of water.
NOTE: Continue to pulse until you
cannot hear chunks of ice hitting the
blender jar, or about 30 to 45 seconds.
• If you are crushing ice with a liquid,
for a drink or other recipe, there
should not be more ice than liquid
for best results. Equal amounts of
ice and liquid work well, for example
2 cups ice and 2 cups liquid. Do not
try and blend 2 cups ice and 1 cup liq-
uid. An air pocket is created around
the blades and prevents all the ice
from being crushed.
Process on Speed 12 for 20 seconds.
Or place 12 ounces frozen juice in
blender jar with 1 can of water. Process
on Speed 12 for 30 seconds. Pour into
pitcher and stir in remaining 2 cans
Smooth Gravy
If your gravy has lumps, place in blender
jar. Remove filler cap from cover to allow
steam to escape. Process on Speed 3 for
5 seconds or until smooth.
Pancakes or Waffles
Place liquid ingredients into blender
jar; then dry ingredients. Process on
Speed 6 for 10 seconds or until blended.
Parmesan Cheese
Cut cheese into half-inch chunks and
place in blender jar. Process on Speed 10
for 45 seconds or until desired consistency.
Superfine Sugar
Place 1 cup regular granulated sugar
in blender jar. Process on Speed 8 for
30 seconds to make superfine sugar
which dissolves instantly in iced tea.
