  • Before the first use, the new nozzle must be kept in boiling water and then rinsed,
  • There is nothing complicated in assembling a blender with a whisk. It is enough to attach the whisk with the gearbox to the motor and turn until a slight click is heard. After making sure that the attachment attachment is secure, you can start cooking,
  • To facilitate the mixing process, first of all, liquid products should be added, and then dry ones. Periodically, the blender must be shaken, saving the working part of adhering ingredients. In no case do not use it for kneading thick dough - this can lead to breakage,
  • Do not use too hot foods, it is better to wait until they have cooled at least to a temperature of 60 degrees,
  • The ingredients must be cut into small pieces, otherwise there is a risk that the nozzle simply can not cope with large portions,
  • When cooking large volumes of food, the appliance should be turned off periodically to avoid overheating.

Cleaning and storing the whisk

Repair nozzles for a blender

We will analyze damage options and how to fix a whisk from a blender. Firstly, it’s extremely rare, but it is possible to break the corolla itself, namely its rods. Rods made of steel can rust from prolonged contact with water and fall into two parts.

The same thing can happen with plastic, just because of deterioration. The solution to the problem is to cut the broken rod under the root with a pair of pliers, if this is not done, that is, the possibility of injury from incorrectly rotating parts.

Secondly, the whisk reducer for the blender often fails. Especially often, such a breakdown occurs with Philips and Braun devices. If the blender’s whisk broke in the gearbox, then the first thing you need is to know how to disassemble the whisk from the blender.

To disassemble, disconnect the nozzle from the blender itself. Next, you need to carefully gently pry the seam in the central part with a screwdriver and disconnect the latches. The whisk reducer for whipping is divided into two parts, where internal mechanisms will be visible. The main problem is getting gears out of their places. The solution will be to return the parts in place and possibly fix with glue.

Dismantling and repairing the whisk of the whisk of the blender is possible, but not in all cases, sometimes it is better to buy a new one!
