Just wondering if this product crushes biscuits well? I have a Kenwood that is terrible - leaves lots of big pieces, even after a considerable number of goes at it. Kath
Does the black base and blades unscrew from the glass blender jug for cleaning? There is no mention of it doing so in the manual and we cannot move the base on our new machine.
Hello Sybil T,
No they base of the Blender jug does not detach from the glass top. Please follow the cleaning method below, which is safer and quicker to clean then pulling the jug apart.
Quick cleaning method -
Half fill the blender with warm water and a small amount of detergent. Press the PULSE button for 10-20 seconds. Then remove the jug and rinse it under running water.
Hope that helps.
Does this efficiently crush ice/ blend frozen fruits? Also can is withstand hot liquids?
Thank you for contacting Sunbeam. LC5500 is a food processor only and we do not recommend crushing ice. A blender is best for for that. LC6500 is a food processor and blender and you can crush ice. We suggest to only crush 10 ice cubes/frozen fruits (cut into cubes) at a time and do not blend for longer than 60 seconds at a time. Also good to add a small bit of water in the jug. Both units cannot withstand warm or hot ingredients. You will need to wait until they are cooled down.
Kind regards Sunbeam
What is the difference between the Lc5500 and the Lc6500
Thank you for contacting Sunbeam. LC6500 has a blender function as well as the food processor. Both are 800W.
Kind Regards Sunbeam
How do you change the slicing/grating blade without injury. I have the grating blade inserted and am unable to take it out?
It may be a little tight at first. Maybe try holding where the button type hole is and gently prise out with something from the other end or push from behind.
