1. As soon as you received the blender, please add some water inside the container to test, DO NOT run it without anything inside as it's a bad try for the coupling system, DO NOT grinding dry ingredients over 1 minute.
2. Like buy a new car it will has some smelling, it's totally normal situation, when you using at the beginning it may have some smelling even slight smoke comes from motor, but don't worry, that because the new motor gets heating up lubricant which coated on coils, it will goes away after few more times use. Thanks for your attention.
3.The Jar is NOT dishwasher safe!!!
