Jars

Our FourSide™, WildSide® and Twister™ jars are proudly made in the U.S.A. using stringent quality control standards and cutting edge technology. They are easy to use and simple to clean.

Use

  1. Place the correctly loaded blender jar on the base, making sure the drive shaft is seated completely on the motor base. Attach the jar lid.
  2. Press the desired touch pad button once. You may press any button on the lower row to stop the cycle at any time.
  3. When cycle is complete, remove the jar, then the lid, and serve.

Care

  1. After each use, wash the jar and lid in hot soapy water. Alternately, the jar can be cleaned by filling the jar with one to four cups of warm water and a drop of dish soap and then pulsing, with the lid in place, for a few seconds.
  2. Do not soak the jar in water for any extended period, as this may shorten the life of the jar bearing.
  3. If the jar is being stored upside down, shake excess water from the bottom of the jar so no water collects around the drive shaft.
  4. The jar may be washed in a dishwasher if placed on the top shelf. It is recommended the Heated Drying option be turned off.
  5. Sanitize the jar periodically. Bleach, properly diluted, can be used as a sanitizer; follow the instructions on the bleach container. Allow the sanitizing solution to remain in the jar for the recommended time; empty and then allow to air dry.
  6. If you are not using your jar daily, reach under the bottom of the jar before each use and turn the drive shaft for a few seconds. This will help keep the seal in good shape and prolong the life of the jar. If the shaft does not spin freely, add some hot water to the jar, then twist the shaft by hand until it begins to spin freely.
  7. Do not place jar onto motor base while the motor is spinning as this causes the jar drive shaft to wear prematurely. Shaking or rocking the jar while on the motor base will also cause premature wear; this damage is not covered by the warranty.
  8. Abrasive cleaners or sponges are not recommended as they will dull or scratch the surfaces of the jar.
  9. To maintain the best seal between your lid and jar, do not store jar with lid in place.
  10. Blending grains will cause the interior of the jar to fog. This is caused by the grain bursting and will not affect the integrity of the jar.
  11. Spices and coffee may permanently discolor the jar and flavors may be absorbed by the jar. We recommend having a second jar for this purpose.

Mix n Blend II

Our versatile kitchen machine is proudly made in the U.S.A. using stringent quality control standards and cutting edge technology, and is easy to use and simple to clean.

Use

  1. The bowl and jar must be used separately. The jar should never be on the unit when the bowl is in use and the bowl should never be on the unit when the jar is in use.
  2. The drive shaft drives the mixing bowl. It is designed as a safety feature on the machine. This feature will cause a drive shaft to break first rather than putting the stress on the internal gears if overloaded.

Care

  1. The touch pad and motor base can be cleaned by using a damp cloth.
  2. The jar and vented lid may be washed by hand or on the top rack in the dishwasher with the “Heated Drying” setting turned off.

Kitchen Mill

Use

  1. Assemble the mill by placing the F-filter in the side of the mill base.
  2. Push the F-filter into position by pressing it into the slot flush with the housing, and then pull it out about a quarter of an inch. This allows air to flow through the motor as well as draw the grain into the milling chamber. The F-filter prevents the mill from overheating and blowing flour out of the side of the mill.
  3. The cyclone cup is attached to the underside of the motor base. It must be used anytime you are using the mill. The function of the cyclone cup is to catch any overflow of flour and to prevent flour from coming out the sides of your machine.
  4. Feed material to be milled into the hopper one scoop at a time. Allow the material to be naturally pulled into the milling heads. Let the machine run until all the particles are out of the milling chamber.

Care

  1. Wipe down the mill with a damp cloth. Grain will clean the milling heads.
  2. The mill pan may be washed by hand or placed in the dishwasher with the “Heated Drying” setting turned off.
  3. To enjoy the full benefits of the mill, read the Owner’s Manual completely.
