• Fruits and vegetables with thick peels (e.g.. citrus fruits, melons, kiwis, beets)
must be peeled first.
• Grapes can be processed only after separation from the bunch.
• For leafy vegetables (e.g.: cabbage and spinach) and herbs, roll leaves together
• Cut fruits and vegetables into pieces that will fit into the filler cap hole.
• The appliance is easily controlled by the touch of a button.
• The appliance can be operated only when the attachments are correctly assembled
and in place on the base.
• When the appliance is plugged in, the light under the "Stop" button will blink
to indicate the Blender is in "Stand-By" mode.

normal use. Always inspect the mill cup for nicks, chips, or cracks. Always inspect
the cutting assembly for broken, cracked, or loose blades. If the mill cup or cutting
assembly are damaged, do not use. Call our toll free customer assistance number to
obtain replacement parts. NOTE: Make sure base in UNPLUGGED and mill cup

is the maximum capacity of the Mill. Wait 1 minute between batches in the Mill.
