  • I just discovered that the jar I have is the wildside jar! I hadn’t noticed the writing up the side, Sorry.

  • I have the lower end model. When making the "batter" my only choice was to use the low setting. My motor smells like it is burning now. Next time I’ll cut the ingredients in half and see if that helps.

    Tiffany Casey on

  • Yes, you can. You’ll want to reduce the ingredients about 1/3.
