A blender impresses not only with its ability to prepare delicious drinks and sauces in a short time. Most models are very easy to clean and keep clean. Prompt cleaning after use is important. Occasionally, a more thorough cleaning can be done with the help of the motor.
Usually simple rinsing is enough
Almost all blenders are designed so that the blender jar and the stand with the technology are two completely separate components. The container can be separated from the motor coupling, into which it is inserted, by simply pulling it out. The container has a cutting blade that, depending on the model and design, can be removed by pulling it out or is fixed.
The nature of the stirring motion of the blender, in addition to the preparation, can also be used ideally as a cleaning aid. In most cases, however, simply rinsing the removed container will suffice as standard cleaning. It is held under hot water and filled several times, rotated and poured out.
Speed is the trump card
To keep a blender clean and sanitary with the least amount of effort, rinsing it out immediately after use is sufficient. Most blended ingredients are very watery and rinse well with hot water. If fibers of fruit or vegetables remain on the bottom of the container and/or the cutting blades, cleaning with the help of the motor is recommended.
Fill the blender jar halfway with hot, non-boiling water. Several squirts of conventional dishwashing liquid will create a potent cleaning solution. The container is placed on top and allowed to run for two to three minutes as in regular blender operation. After subsequent removal and pouring out, all buildup and fiber residue should be gone.
Eliminate bacteria and odors
Blenders can have containers made of glass or plastic. For both, lemon juice or lemon concentrate can be used for a more thorough cleaning, about every four weeks. For dried and stubborn stains, soaking for several hours is the best solution.
To realize neutralization of odors such as spices like garlic, a few pieces of lemon peel can be “mixed”. When they are completely crushed, the smell will be gone.
