Frequently Asked Questions
Can Spectablend heat soups?
Absolutely! Spectablend’s high speed is fast enough to create friction heat that can bring ingredients to steaming hot for up to 30°C perfect for raw foodists! Check out some of our recipes here.
Can Spectablend grind nuts?
Certainly, check out our blog entry and video on how we made peanut butter.
Spectablend seems similar to other rival blenders. What is the difference?
We realise that similar rival blenders offer up to 7 years warranty but we would like to add that they build their “warranty policy” into their pricing. Their customers are in fact paying more for something up front that they might not even use. Spectablend will back products for 1 year (3 year on the motor).
Do you have a physical store?
We don’t have a physical store. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to enquire.
Where is your customer service centre?
Please e-mail us at email@example.com prior to visiting.
We’re at 50 Langridge St, Middle Park, 3206 VIC Australia.
Can I pick up from your office?
Our blenders are stocked at our warehouse so pick up is not available.
Care & Repair
Help! My blender stopped working!
Do not worry. Check if the current protector button is turned off (it’s the bubble behind your blender), press it and then reset. It’s a safety mechanism we’ve installed in place to protect your motor from overheating.
If the blender still does not work, please check the following:
- Whether the appliance is plugged in
- If the fuse needs replacing or the automatic switch has shut off
- If there is a power cut
- If none of the above applies, please do not attempt to fix the blender yourself and instead, ask your specialized Spectablend personnel for repair or replacement by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
