How to Clean Blender and Accessories

Clean the Blender thoroughly after every use.

NOTE: To avoid damaging the Blender, do not immerse the blender base or cord in water. To avoid scratching the Blender, do not use abrasive cleansers or scouring pads.

  1. To clean the blender base and cord, unplug the Blender before cleaning. Wipe the base and the cord with a warm, damp cloth; wipe clean with a damp cloth, and dry with a soft cloth.

  1. Make sure to clean the blender jar, lid and ingredient-measuring cap after each use. Remove any remaining contents from the blender jar. Fill 1/3 of the blender jar with warm water and add 1 drop of liquid detergent. Place the lid on the blender jar, and make sure the blender jar is fully in place on the blender base.

  1. The blender jar, lid, Flex Edge tamper, and ingredient-measuring cap are dishwasher safe; the Flex Edge tamper, lid, and ingredient-measuring cap should be placed in the top rack of the dishwasher. If preferred, all parts may also be washed by hand with a damp cloth and warm soapy water, and then rinsed with warm water and dried with a soft cloth.

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​NOTE: The handle grip can remain on the handle of the blender jar during cleaning and dishwasher cycles. If needed, the handle grip can be removed to run through the dishwasher separately and then replaced.
