The Best Ways to Clean Your Oster® Blender
When you make a smoothie, soup, milkshake or juice, you're left with two things: a tasty homemade concoction and a dirty blender jar. Feel free to enjoy your food first, because cleaning your blender jar is easy, no matter which type of Oster® blender you have in your kitchen.
Here are a few tips that can help you get rid of everything from kale pulp to tomato juice so that your blender is clean, clear and ready for your next recipe.
Simply add warm water and dish soap to the dirty jar until the blender is about half full. Next, blend on a medium to high setting for between 30 and 60 seconds to agitate the food particles. Then detach the jar and rinse it out. You'll be left with a clear blender jar that required zero scrubbing near the sharp blades. Hand-wash the lid and cap as needed.
If you're having trouble with hard water marks in your blender in addition to standard food stains, consider using lemon or salt as a natural cleaning option.
Your MyBlend™ blender is machine washable
The MyBlend™ personal blender is even easier to clean. Simply place your blender jar in the dishwasher's top rack when you're done drinking your smoothie. The bottle or jar, the lid and the blade attachment are all machine washable. The only part that you can't wash is the blender base.
Larger Versa® and all purpose blender jars and lids are not dishwasher safe. Best results are had when washed with warm water and soap.
"No matter which type of blender you use at home, its base should never be submerged in water."
You can probably wash away that bad MyBlend™ sports bottle smell
If you notice that your MyBlend™ sports bottle has a slight odor after using it, you may want to wash it again. But this time, let it dry without the lid or blade attached. Give everything a chance to air out and dry completely. Next time you use it, the only odor you'll smell is your fruit smoothie.
Never submerge your blender base in water
No matter which type of blender you use at home, its base should never be submerged in water. The jar, lid and filler cap can all be detached and washed in the sink with soap and warm water, but the blender base shouldn't be placed in the sink or immersed in water. The blender base houses machine parts and electrical components that can be damaged by water.
