IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS

To prevent personal injury or property damage, read and follow all instructions and warnings.

When using electrical appliances, basic safety precautions should always be followed including the following:

Read all instructions, including these important safeguards and the care and use instructions in this manual.

To protect against electrical shock, do not put the cord, plug or the motor assembly in water or other liquid.

Close supervision is necessary when this appliance is used by or near children.

Unplug the appliance from outlet when not in use, before putting on or taking off parts and before cleaning.

Avoid contact with moving parts.

Do not operate this appliance with a damaged cord or plug, after the appliance malfunctions or if the appliance is dropped or damaged in any manner. If you experience any problems with your appliance, unplug it immediately from the electrical outlet. For service information see warranty page.

The use of accessory attachments, including canning jars, not recommended or sold by Focus Electrics may cause fire, electric shock or injury to persons.

Do not use outdoors.

Do not let the cord hang over the edge of a table or counter.

Do not let the cord come into contact with hot surfaces, including a stove.

Do not place on or near a hot gas or electrical burner or in a heated oven.

Do not use this appliance for other than its intended use.

Turn off the machine before removing the blending jar from the base and before placing the blending jar on the base.

Do not run motor without blending jar properly attached to motor base or when blending jar is empty.

Keep hands and utensils (other than included stir stick) out of blending jar while mixing ingredients to reduce risk of severe injury to persons or damage to the appliance.

Blades are sharp; handle carefully.

Always operate the appliance with the lid in place.

Do not blend excessively hot liquids. Never pour boiling water into the blending jar.

When blending hot liquids, remove center piece of two-piece cover.

Be sure to turn switch to “OFF” position after each use.

To disconnect, grip plug and pull from wall outlet. Never pull on cord to disconnect.

2

To prevent personal injury or property damage, read and follow all instructions and warnings.

Never leave the house while the appliance is on.

A short power-supply cord is provided to reduce risks resulting from becoming entangled in or tripping over a longer cord.

Longer, detachable power-supply cords or extension cords are available and may be used if care is exercised in their use. While use of an extension cord is not recommended, if you must use one, the marked electrical rating of the detachable power-supply cord or extension cord should be at least as great as the electrical rating of the appliance. If the appliance is of the grounded type, the extension cord should be a grounding-type 3-wire cord. The cord should be arranged so that it will not hang over the counter top or tabletop where it can be pulled by children or tripped over.

After running the motor continuously for ninety seconds, wait at least three minutes before running the motor again.

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

To reduce the risk of injury, never place cutter-assembly blades on base without blending jar properly attached.

For household use only.

ASSEMBLING YOUR SMOOTHIE SIGNATUREII

Before assembling your Smoothie SignatureII wash all parts, except for the motor base in warm, soapy water, rinse thoroughly and dry. Unscrew and disassemble the valve for cleaning (see Cleaning Your Smoothie SignatureII section). To prolong the life of your smoothie maker, do not wash parts in the dishwasher.

1.Position the rubber gasket down onto the circular flat surface in the blade base.

2.Screw the blade base onto the bottom of the blending jar by twisting the blade base counter-clockwise until tightened. Make sure that the blade base is tightly fastened to the blending jar and that the rubber gasket is properly compressed between the blending jar and the blade base.

3.Press the lid on to the top of the blending jar. Place the clear lid cap in the center of the lid or place the stir stick through the center of the lid if blending liquids or frozen drinks.

4.Place the blending jar on to the motor base so the bottom of the blade base is sitting flat on the motor base.

5.Plug in the cord. Your smoothie maker is now ready to use.

USING YOUR SMOOTHIE SIGNATUREII

CONTROL BUTTONS:

LOW - runs the unit at low speed. Use this speed for the initial 30 seconds of mixing as well as for dispensing.

MEDIUM – runs the appliance at medium speed. Use this speed for the majority of blending tasks.

HIGH – runs the unit at high speed. Use this speed for the final stages of mixing. Do not use this speed for dispensing.

ICE CRUSH - The “ICE CRUSH” button allows you to crush ice and other frozen ingredients. In selecting “ICE CRUSH”,

the motor will pulsate to a high speed until the desired consistency is reached.

PULSE - gives short bursts of power at high speed. Use “PULSE” to begin the mixing of ice and other hard ingredients.

OFF - turns off the appliance.

To make your favorite frozen drinks, follow the steps below.

1.ADD LIQUIDS – Add any combination of liquid ingredients up to the “LIQUIDS” mark under “SERVES 2” or “SERVES 4” located on the blending jar. Liquids include any soft ingredients such as fruit, milk, fruit juice, herbal supplements, or yogurt in any combination you think would be tasty.

We are, of course, partial to the Back to Basics® smoothie mixes, which quickly and easily make three delicious 8-ounce smoothies.

2.ADD ICE – Add ice or frozen ingredients until the total level reaches the “FROZEN INGREDIENTS” line on the side of the blending jar. Frozen ingredients include ice, frozen fruit, frozen yogurt, ice cream, etc.

3.SMOOTH IT – With the lid on and the stir stick (use as directed below) set in the hole in the lid, pulse the mixture 2 or 3 times by pressing the “PULSE” button. Then press the “HIGH” button until the ingredients are completely mixed.

STIR STICK OPERATION – When in use, and while the machine is running, stir or rotate the Stir Stick in a counterclockwise direction so that the Stir Stick scrapes or contacts the sides of the blending jar. This stirring operation will aid in mixing the contents of the blending jar by forcing the ingredients into the mixing blades.

4.SERVE IT – To serve the smoothie, press the “LOW” button,

place a cup under the valve and press down the valve lever. Stir the contents in the blending jar with the stir stick while dispensing thick smoothies. As the smoothie level reaches the bottom of the blending jar, a thick mix may stop dispensing. Add a few tablespoons of liquid to increase flow. When the blending jar is empty, turn the machine “OFF” and enjoy. You can continue making smoothies one after another, but be sure to give the smoothie maker a 3-minute break after 90 seconds of continuous use.

To make a thicker smoothie, add more frozen ingredients.

To make a thinner smoothie, add more liquid ingredients.

CLEANING YOUR SMOOTHIE SIGNATUREII

1.Switch to “OFF” and unplug from the electrical outlet.

2.Wipe the motor base with a damp cloth or sponge. To remove stubborn spots, use a mild, non-abrasive cleanser.

3.Remove the blade assembly and rubber gasket from the blending jar. Unscrew and disassemble the dispensing valve. Carefully wash all parts except the motor base in warm, soapy water, rinse and dry thoroughly. To prolong the life of your smoothie maker, do not wash any parts in the dishwasher.

CLEANING THE DISPENSING VALVE

1.Remove the valve from the blending jar by unscrewing the entire valve counterclockwise.

2.Remove the cap from the valve body by unscrewing it counter-clockwise.

3.Squeeze cap and stopper together and slide the lever off the stopper pin.

4.Remove the spring.

5.Remove the stopper and stopper pin by pulling the rubber rim of the stopper. The stopper and pin are tightly fit and need not be separated.

6.Clean all parts in warm, soapy water, allow to dry thoroughly and reassemble in the order shown.
