I've got one of those: I upgraded after my smoothie maker started to go all clunky. All the online reviews agree that the instructions are terrible! In all honesty it was not the best use of my cash (she says sadly). It's good for smoothie making but then the jug has no pouring lip. If it's the same one as mine, then to use the chopping pot you have to find the central spindle thing, it goes into the blender tub to connect it up to the drive cogs properly. Good luck!
Thanks Aethelfeda. I really regret buying it. Far too many parts. And I was going to buy a Magimix and pondered on it for years...... Sobs.....Bosch- Wrong decision. I have put it away... in a huge box....because there are so many bl***y parts and I can't get the blender to work. Grrrr
Holly, by "blender" do you mean the big bit with the choppy blades? Pm me with a link to a pic (or put a photo on your profile) and if its the same as mine I'll see if I can explain! May be a bit late for your breadcrumbs but wirth a try?
Well mine is the 9014 model (with a natty tray to store all the sharp bits within the base which is why I got it). You simply put the jug on and twist: but there's a special locking-checker in the handle so that it only works if it's all screwed in tight enough, otherwise it doesnt turn on! Is yours a larger bells and whistles one?
