The heavy-duty shatter-resistant glass jar can hold up to six cups of food and liquid, and raised markings on the side make it easy to accurately measure your ingredients. The clear removable cap on top allows steam to escape, and it holds 2 oz. for quick measurements. This blender comes in a contemporary black and stainless steel design with anti-slip rubber feet that keep it stable during use. Best of all, the glass jar is odor and stain-resistant, and it's easy to clean. The auto-clean function loosens food that's stuck inside, and each of the removable parts are dishwasher-safe.
What can you not put in a blender?
Blenders can handle most foods, but some things like bones and whole nuts can damage or break the blades. Raw vegetables like broccoli, celery, and cauliflower do best in a food processor, and cooked potatoes turn to paste when blended. Hot liquid can be very dangerous in a blender, because the steam can create explosive pressure.
What are the benefits of blending food?
Blending your food can be extremely healthy for your body. A blender effectively pulverizes food, which causes the cells to break up. When this happens, antioxidants are released, making it easier for your body to absorb its nutrients. Additionally, it's easy to get your daily recommended amount of fruits and vegetables by blending them into a delicious smoothie.
What can I gift for Christmas?
Appliances both large and small are excellent Christmas gift ideas for your loved ones. Gifts they can use daily are especially memorable, such as refrigerators, vacuums, microwaves, toaster ovens, beverage centers, fire pits, televisions, coffee makers, air purifiers, and kegerators.
