How do I use a blender?

Blenders make cooking easy. But stationary ones better beat egg whites and cocktails, knead batter and cream. Some models break ice. In submersible devices, it is good to grind bread crumbs and vegetables, prepare sauces and purees.

Consider 5 points when buying a device:

  • choose a stationary blender with a self-cleaning function. It will automatically clean up after one-touch operation;
  • the glass bowl is easy to clean. But if it breaks, then replacing it is not easy. Plastic containers are durable and lightweight, but absorb odors;
  • take into account the useful volume of the bowl, which differs by 200-300 ml from the total. Indeed, in a container filled to the brim, it is impossible to cook or whip;
  • buy a hand blender with a power of 300 watts or more. He will cope with the task faster and the hand will not get tired during work;
  • stainless steel blender attachments are strong and durable. Plastic - break down quickly.

Your blender will last an order of magnitude more if you adhere to 5 rules:

  • when working for a long time, take obligatory breaks so that the motor does not burn out;
  • clean the knives and container after use to prevent corrosion on the knives;
  • do not grind solid and dry food without adding water. First, the motor will overheat. Secondly, they will not be crushed, but crumbled;
  • hot food or liquid can damage the bowl;
  • chop the food before setting (at least coarsely) so as not to overload the blender.

Use the device with care for its intended purpose and it will serve you 2 times longer.
