16.Do not remove the jar from the motor unit while the unit is running.

17.BLADES ARE SHARP. HANDLE CAREFULLY.

SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS

Consumer Safety Information

THIS UNIT IS FOR HOUSEHOLD USE ONLY.

Polarized Plug

This appliance has a polarized plug (one blade is wider than the other). To reduce the risk of electric shock, this plug will fit in a polarized outlet only one way. If the plug does not fit fully into the outlet, reverse the plug and reinsert. If it still does not fit, contact a qualified electrician. Do not modify the plug in any way.

CAUTION

Short cord Instructions: Your blender appliance is equipped with a short power supply cord as a safety precaution to prevent personal injury or property damage resulting from pulling, tripping or becoming entangled with a longer cord. Do not allow children to use or be near this appliance without close adult supervision. An extension cord is available and may be used if care is exercised in its use. If an extension cord is used, (1) the marked electrical rating of the cord set or extension cord should be at least as great as the electrical rating of the appliance, (2) the cord should be arranged so that it will not drape over the countertop or tabletop where it can be pulled on by children or tripped over unintentionally, (3) If the appliance is of the grounded type, the extension cord should be a grounding3-wirecord.

WARNING

Electrical Shock Hazard

Plug the unit into a properly grounded electrical outlet.

Failure to follow these instructions can result in death, fire, or electrical shock.
