Generally, you start slow and work up in speed. If you're making soup, you don't want to blow the top off the sucker by hitting the fastest speed. (Some of the most powerful models -- ones with 2-hp motors -- can actually COOK soup, because they blades spin so fast.) So, start slow and work you way up. If you're making a sauce, you will work your way up to the fastest speeds. If you grinding coffee beans, you won't need the fastest settings; slower speeds will do the trick.
