Before cleaning the blender, ensure that it is unplugged and the power source is disconnected to prevent accidents.

2. Disassemble

If applicable, remove the blender jar or container from the base and disassemble any removable parts such as the lid, blade assembly, and gasket.

3. Rinse Removable Parts

Rinse the removable parts under warm running water to remove any residual food particles or liquids.

4. Hand Wash or Use Dishwasher

Wash the removable parts with mild dish soap and a non-abrasive sponge or brush. Alternatively, place them in the dishwasher for a thorough cleaning. Avoid using harsh abrasives or scouring pads that could damage the blender components.

5. Clean the Base

Use a damp cloth or sponge to wipe down the base of the blender, including the control panel and exterior surfaces, to remove any spills or splatters. Be careful not to let water seep into the motor housing.

6. Dry Thoroughly

After cleaning, thoroughly dry all parts with a clean dish towel or allow them to air dry completely before reassembling the blender.

7. Reassemble

Once dry, reassemble the blender by placing the blade assembly, gasket, and lid back onto the container. Ensure that all parts are securely in place.

8. Storage

Store the blender in a clean and dry location when not in use, preferably with the container placed upside down to allow for proper air circulation and prevent moisture buildup.

Periodically inspect the blender for signs of wear and tear, such as damaged blades or worn gaskets, and replace them as needed to maintain optimal performance.
