3 Features That Can Make Or Break The Best Blenders
When you are out shopping for a new kitchen blender there are many features you'll run across.Â The container jar capacity, the engine's power, and the number of different speeds are some of the most essential features to look at.Â You also want to look at consumer reviews and quality reports.Â Checking the value and price of the blender is also a good thing to do.Â But there are several other lesser known but equally important kitchen blender features that you will want to consider.
A Container Jar That Is Dishwasher Safe
Cleaning the blender container and other parts in a dishwasher can be a tremendous timesaver.Â It is also very healthy because the heat and water pressure generated by most automatic dishwashers can kill many harmful bacteria and disease causing microbes. Â
Containers made of polycarbonate, glass, and plastic are generally dishwasher safe.Â Although not all are.Â And most of the best blenders, those with the top ratings, like Vitamix and Blendtec, have dishwasher safe containers.Â You even find that a lot of other blender parts are safe to go in the dishwasher as well, including the blade assembly.Â You should always consult your owner's manual before putting parts in the dishwasher, just to be sure though.
