Use these tips on how to safely blend hot ingredients to prevent an accidental splash of hot liquid in the face and chest.
- Barely fill the blender halfway up the container. The blending action creates volume and the hot liquid oozes out the sides.
- Make sure there is an even amount of liquid and solids in the container to blend smoothly.
- Remove the smaller cap from the top and cover it with a kitchen towel folded in quarters or a thick oven mitt and be sure to hold the cloth or mitt over the hole with your hand. The steam creates pressure and pops the top off the blender and the hot liquid smacks you in the face.
Follow these simple tips and you’ll have a smooth puree and no accidents!
