The tool should not be incinerated or placed in the trash or curbside recycling. The tool can be taken for disposal to an Authorized Service Center. Some local retailers are also participating in a national recycling program (refer to RBRC®). For more information visit or call the toll‑free number in the RBRC Seal. RBRC is a registered trademark of Call 2 Recycle, Inc. If you bring the tool to an Authorized Service Center, the Center will arrange to recycle the tool and its battery.

When using electrical appliances, basic safety precautions should always be followed to reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, and/or injury, including the following:

  • Read and save all instructions.
  • To protect against the risk of electrical shock, do not immerse the appliance, motor, cord, or plug in water or other liquid. Do not use the appliance in the bathroom, near water, or outdoors.
  • This appliance should not be used by children or by persons with reduced physical, sensory, or mental capabilities, or lack of experience and knowledge. Close supervision is necessary when any appliance is used near children. Children should be supervised to ensure that they do not play with the appliance.
  • Do not operate in explosive atmospheres, such as in the presence of flammable liquids or gases
  • Do not operate any appliance after the appliance malfunctions, or is dropped or damaged in any manner. Call the appropriate toll‑free number in this manual.
  • The use of attachments not recommended or sold by the appliance manufacturer may cause fire, electric shock, or injury; do not use attachments or appliances for anything other than intended use.
  • This appliance is not intended for commercial, professional, or industrial use. It is designed and built exclusively for household use.
  • Do not place appliances on, near, or in a hot item such as a stove, oven, pot, or container. Only use metal attachments with hot liquids or food items.

Hot/Cold Delay

When the charger detects a battery that is too hot or too cold, it automatically starts a Hot/Cold Pack Delay, suspending charging until the battery has reached an appropriate temperature. The charger then automatically switches to the charging mode. This feature ensures maximum battery life. A cold battery may charge at a slower rate than a warm battery. The hot/cold pack delay will be indicated by all 3 LEDs continuously flashing a short ON followed by a longer ON. Once the battery has reached an appropriate temperature, the charger will resume the charging procedure.

Immersion Blender Tips and Tricks

  • The immersion blender blends foods and liquids rapidly, therefore it is easy to overprocess. Stop the motor and check food throughout the operation to avoid overprocessing.
  • When pureeing and blending, cut food into uniform sizes. This will ensure smooth and consistent results.
  • Allow hot food to cool slightly before blending.

Can Opener Tips and Tricks

  • Do not release the lever until you are over the trash can to prevent the need of grabbing the can lid.
  • Do not begin using until the lever is completely horizontal.
  • Once you have begun, raise the can off of the counter to remove the resistance to rotating.
  • Keep the can perpendicular to the counter and just slightly off the countertop to prevent messes.
  • If draining the can is needed, the angle will lid slightly and move to the sink. Rotate the can to allow excess liquid to exit while holding the lid in place.


Unit not running: Place the appliance on the charger until all LEDs are on and solid. Then try using the unit again. Splatters food outside container: Adjust the variable‑speed dial. Start with the speed on the lowest setting to prevent making a mess and adjust to higher speeds as ingredients become well mixed, and as you feel more comfortable with the speed

If the unit is not charging:

  • Ensure the charger is plugged in.
  • Wipe down the charging pegs on the appliance as well as the charger connector. Use a cloth dampened only with water and mild soap.
  • Temperature fault or overcurrent conditions may have occurred.
  • Temperature fault: LEDs will blink in the following pattern.
  • . (250ms ON, 250ms OFF, 10ms ON, 250ms OFF). – Over-current: the unit will shut down with no flashing.
  • Refer to the HOT/COLD DELAY section for more information.
