It is vital that you properly clean and maintain each piece of equipment and supply in your restaurants kitchen on a regular basis and immersion blenders are no different. A dirty immersion blender can prevent the blade from properly blending as well as contaminate your food. Here are a few simple steps to care for your immersion blender to ensure its prime performance during every use.
Clean It…. After each use thoroughly clean the motor body and blending shaft with a mild detergent. Wash with hot water and rinse with warm water for optimal cleaning. Thoroughly clean interior and exterior stainless steel components to dislodge any and all food residue.
- On Waring blenders, clean and sanitize the plastic motor housing before initial use and after each use. Furthermore, many Waring Immersion Blenders have completely sealed stainless steel shafts that make them dishwasher safe. (Please check the Instruction Manual)
Unplug It….To eliminate the risk of electrical shock, unplug the appliance before you clean it. When you are done using your Immersion Blender make sure to unplug it and store it somewhere safe and clean.
Do Not… Do not immerse the motor body of the immersion blender in water.
