Have you got yourself a classic blender? That is a useful tool in the kitchen. With it, you can make all sorts of goodies, from smoothies to sauces. Now, while you might generally know how to use it, we have some tips that are essential to help you not only make the most out of your blender but to ensure that you don't go breaking it, too.
Start low, end high
While that loud noise might put the fear in you to keep the machine on high, it is a good thing! No, we are not saying fear is a good thing, but keeping your blender on high is.
Contrary to what you might think, a blender on high will last longer than a blender on medium or low. The blender is much more efficient at high speed, and because the motor spins a lot faster, it cools down faster as well. In low mode, your motor heats up quickly, putting at risk of shutting off automatically when it became way too hot.
Even so, do not go switching the blender to high instantly. Instead, start low to get the blender and ingredients going. Once the items have somewhat broken down, speed it up until you hit high.
Tamper with the food
Your blender might come with a tamper, and it allows you to get the food items moving if they have stopped. Not only does this mean that the result is a mixture that is blended more thoroughly, but helping the food move prevents any air pockets between the blades and the ingredients.
If you are planning to use the tamper, do not fill your blender to the brim. Instead, fill it about two-thirds for maximum efficiency.
The lid plug can act as a measuring cup
You might be thinking that the lid plug's only job is to allow you to pour stuff in and make sure nothing gets out. While it does that, you can also use it as a measuring cup. Note, however, that the lid plug will generally measure only about an ounce.
Put in items in the correct order
You might think that tossing all that you need to be blended in the blender is fine. While it might do the job, not only does this hurt the result but even the blender itself. In other words, putting items in the right order will ensure that you get the best blending job.
Start with liquids, then soft foods, then hard foods. Doing this will help prevent your blender from stalling, as well as preventing any leftover chunks of food being unblended.
In summary, to ensure that you make the most out of your classic blender, put the food items in the right order, keep the mixture going, blend on high, and utilize the lid plug for any extra add-ons to your blend. With that, you can enjoy the absolute best products, from vegetable drinks to smoothies to desserts and more.
