Included in the scope of delivery:

  • 1.000 Watt motor
  • 4 winged knife
  • Manual cable rewind

The application

The JB 5160 Blender IdentityCollection by Braun is very easy to use.

Before using it for the first time, you should clean all parts as explained later and connect it to a power outlet.

Next, attach the knife to the mounting ring, place the knife seal on the edge of the knife unit and turn the blender jug clockwise until it clicks into place.

To secure the blender jug, it is important that the rotary switch is in the O position. The blender jug is then placed on the motor unit and locked into place.

Then fill the container with the food to be processed, place the lid on the container, place the measuring cup on the opening in the lid and switch on the motor unit.

With regard to the rotary switch, it should be mentioned that it should always be turned clockwise to switch on the device.

To start a program, press the start button. Now you can choose between the program for crushing ice, the program for soups and purees and the program for smoothies.

For best results, when puréeing solid ingredients, always add small amounts to the blender jug and chop large pieces before mixing. In addition, you should use the pulse mode to achieve a good result.

It is also important here to interrupt the operation briefly after 2 minutes so that the appliance does not overheat.

In this case, a milkshake was prepared from 400g frozen raspberries, 300g frozen strawberries, 30g brown sugar, 1.5l milk, and some vanilla extract.

The preparation ran off problem-free, one should not fill the equipment only up to above, since the liquid overflows otherwise.

The result of the drink was very tasty and the fruits were easy to puree.


The cleaning is quite simple. If you only want to clean the blender jug for a short time, fill the empty jug with water, place it on the motor unit, turn the rotary switch to the P position more often, empty the jug and rinse it.

If you prefer a thorough cleaning, first unscrew the fixing ring and make sure that the blender jug is empty. It is important to pay attention to the knife.
