Does cleaning your blender jar feel as scary as the Texas Chainsaw Massacre? Is it conjuring up images of Freddy Krueger from the Nightmare on Elm Street—sharp blades cutting through anything that gets in the way? If you come to think of it, there is an educated way to clean and maintain a blender jar, and there is the uneducated way which presents serious risks of injury. Blendtec Blender jars are easy to clean and maintain in ways that are not only hassle-free, but guaranteed to save your fingers from being injured.

Before that, let’s have a look at how people usually clean their blender jars. We think it is akin to watching a bloody, horror story! Here’s why.

 

2 Ways How NOT To Clean Your Blendtec Blender Jar

Step 1: Soak up a sponge with a dishwashing liquid.

Step 2: Use your hand to clean the inside of the jar while the blade is still attached. Carefully reach for the inner part of the jar particularly the spaces in between the blades, ensuring that there are no food debris left and the blender jar is totally clean.

Whaaat! Sounds insane, right? But true! This happens in 1 out of 3 households all because of the lack of education!

Not only is this very risky, it is also not the best way to achieve a thoroughly cleaned jar.

Cleaning your jar thoroughly is important because you do not want food contaminants to stay inside the jar, affecting the quality and taste of the food that you will blend.

That said, here’s how to clean your Blendtec Blender jar, and you will realise all it takes is good common sense!

2 Safe And Hassle-Free Ways To Thoroughly Clean Your Blendtec Blender Jar

Safe cleaning tip # 1: Use your Blendtec Blender base to clean the jar

  1. Use a spoon or the other end of a spatula to remove excess food from the jar.
  2. Fill the jar with water and a few drops of liquid cleaner.
  3. Sit the jar on the base and press “Pulse” three to four times.
  4. Remove the jar from the base, rinse, drain and dry.

And voila! A very clean jar without having to risk losing your finger!

Safe cleaning tip #2: Wash and rinse your Blendtec Blender jar by hand

  1. Remove the jar from the base.
  2. Using a spoon or the other end of a spatula, remove excess food from the jar.
  3. Use a non-scratch cleaning pad to clean the jar. Abrasive cleaning pads can scratch the jar. Lemon-based dishwashing soap makes the jar look foggy. Avoid using these.
  4. Rinse, drain, and dry!

The point is, never ever clean the jar while the blade is attached to it!

Blendtec Blenders also come with proprietary Spectacula or Spoonula which are cool accessories that help with cleaning and maintaining the jars.

If you also have a dishwasher at home, Blendtec Blenders are also dishwasher safe. Likewise, remove the excess food from the jar, fill it with water and a few drops of liquid dishwashing soap, press “Pulse” a few times, and then place the jar on the top rack of the dishwasher. Do not run the heat setting.
