How do you clean a K-Tec blender?


Quick Answer

K-TEC advises users to carefully wash the jar and lid in hot soapy water after each use. The jar can also be cleaned while still on the motorized stand by pulsating one to four cups of warm water and a small amount of dish soap for a few seconds. The jar can also be washed safely on the top rack of the dishwasher without heat drying.

K-TEC warns users against soaking the jar in water for extended periods of time, as it may shorten the life of the jar bearing. Excess water should be shaken out of the bottom of the jar if it's stored upside-down so as to avoid water collection around the drive shaft. Abrasive sponges and cleaners should be avoided because they have the potential to dull or scratch the surface of the jar. It's advisable to periodically rinse the jar in a properly-diluted bleach solution to thoroughly sanitize it. Blending grains causes the interior of the jar to fog up when the grains burst. In addition, spices and coffees can permanently discolor the interior of the jar and leave a lasting flavor inside that may subtly affect the taste of future recipes made with the blender.
