Handyman tips-food blenders or "liquidizers" how do they work
we cannot do without the trusted "blender" in the kitchen-from "liquidizing" fruit,tomatoes,ice cubes,spices,peppers,
you name it the list is endless.
Blades inside the blender rotate at high speeds once the lid is attached to the base and locked on only the will the machine
allow you nto switch it on-without deploying this unique safety feature it will not switch on.
The speed dial selector is then rotated to the desired liquidizing speed.
Some blenders are self cleaning but if not this is a reltively easy process;pour water and soap or vinegar into the machine
the press the "pulse" button this gives short bursts of power to te blender for about 5 seconds intervals.If you do not
hav this feature then just press on for about 5 seconds at a time.After cleaning wipe with a soft cloth taking care not
to touch the blades.
