I faced my fears again last week with black bean soup, thinking that I needed to put less in the blender because it was hot. I let my boyfriend push the pulse button so I could not be blamed again for the mess, but it still rocketed toward the ceiling.
What am I doing wrong? Any tips on using a blender spray-free? Thanks!
Sent by BeccaEditor: Becca, well, the answer here is very simple: You have to hold down the lid very, very firmly when blending soup. The hot liquid, the vibration, and the steam will all always conspire to blow the lid off. Use a folded towel to protect your hands from the hot liquid and hold the lid down hard when blending soups or other hot liquid.
Readers, any tips for Becca and for blending hot soups?
