Cleaning a Stick Blender

Got one for Christmas and accidentally threw out the manual that came with it.

It's a Cuisinart "Quick Prep" model CS8-33BC. It doesn't come apart or anything, so what I did to clean it was to run it with the business end immersed in some hot soapy water.

Anyone got a better idea?

I have a very similar one, mud. I grow to like it more every time I use it!

As long as you don't get the thick handle part wet, you're OK. Usually I run the blender end under hot water, wipe it down with a soapy sponge, and then rinse it off with hot water. I always make sure to have it unplugged when I do this. Then I just wipe it dry.

I always submerged the blending end into some soapy water, and hit the switch for a second. You could also be extra-safe and submerge and blend in some bleach water to sanitize it.

I do the same. My dream is to buy a new one with detachable stainless steel attachments.

if you employ either method, or the help of the dog, just make sure it is unplugged!

I do it the same way bug - bowl or the "thing" that came with it - hot soapy water and blend away!!! Fill with clean water or just rinse under faucet with more hot water.
