I mean that in a traditional blender if pressure builds up it can escape through the lid of the blender. If you screw a closed non-standard container to the base pressure could build up and cause the container to explode. I would NEVER
attempt this with a hot or even warm liquid.
The glass container that came as standard equipment with my blender is very thick and appears to be similar to a heavy Pyrex baking dish, it was engineered to take the pounding that things whirling around in a blender can give it. I worry about things like ice cubes, frozen strawberries pounding against a thinner glass container.
I have only used these non-standard containers to make small amounts of salad dressing. I toss a kitchen towel over them while the blender is on to minimize the mess in my kitchen and the damage to me if one of them does break in the process. I guarantee you if one explodes it will explode in my kitchen!
