Other than really hot stuff, I don't use it.
I'm sure you now know this--I learned the same hard lesson. When pureeing hot things in the blender take the plug out of the top and as you blend, cover it with a towel so the pressure doesn't build up. Broccoli soup all over me and the kitchen was not a thing of beauty.
