Does the unit operate at different speeds?
Yes. The power pod will automatically adjust speeds based on the blade that is installed in the pitcher. The high-speed blade rotates faster than the other blades, producing a finer consistency. The Total Crushing & Power Chopping Blade will coarsely or finely chop ingredients for a thick puree or salsa. The dough blade will mix and combine ingredients into a dough or batter.
Yes. The splash guard is part of the lid.
Yes, you can use the Total Crushing & Power Chopping Blade or high-speed blade to blend your favorite frozen ingredients.
No. Blending hot ingredients can cause an excessive amount of pressure to build up, resulting in the risk of being burned.
Yes. To create snow, use ice straight from the freezer. Do not use ice that has been sitting out or that has started to melt. After the unit is assembled and ice is added to the pitcher, use short pulses to break up large pieces, then continue processing until the ice reaches a snowy consistency.
No. We do not recommend using an extension cord.
While the unit is not a juicer specifically, you can blend fruits and veggies to liquefy into a beverage with an ultra-smooth consistency. The thickness of your drink is dependent on how much liquid you add to your ingredients.

The dough blade is best at mixing doughs and batters.
The pitcher, splash guard lid, and blades are all top-rack dishwasher safe. Use a damp cloth to wipe the power pod as needed. Pay close attention to the area where the blades are inserted into the power pod. Clean after every use to ensure food does not build up.
No. If you feel as though your blades are not sharp enough, you can order replacement parts.
Very carefully place the blades on the top rack of the dishwasher or hand-wash them in warm, soapy water. For safety, hold the blade by the shaft, and use a cleaning tool with a long handle to ensure you do not come in contact with blades.
