3 Ways to Maintain Your Blender
Assemble the blender properly. Secure all the parts each time you use it, and follow any instructions given in the blender’s user manual regarding proper assembly. Make sure that the blade is securely tightened in the blender’s base, and that the glass or plastic container (also called the carafe) unit is firmly seated in the motorized base unit.
- In most cases, an incorrectly assembled blender just won’t work or won’t work well, but sometimes, loose parts could fly out or you could damage the blender.
Blend only appropriate items. Blenders are designed to chop up soft food items and liquids, and should be used only for this purpose. If you’re using your blender to grind up or chop hard foods, you’d be better off using a food processor.
- If you do use a blender for making paper or some other non-food purpose, be aware that it may permanently damage the blender. Use a separate, inexpensive blender that you won’t mind losing.
Cut up larger pieces of food. If you’re blending large food items, like big chunks of pineapple, watermelon, or citrus fruits, be sure to cut these into smaller pieces before blending. You can cut things in fairly large chunks; aim for about 2 square inches (13 square centimeters).
- Smaller chunks will blend more easily and much quicker than uncut fruit. Make sure the pieces of food you’re blending are at least small enough to fit into the bottom part of your blender.
