How to Use Mason Jars with a Blender
A mason jar is a great way to preserve your food, but did you know that you could use a mason jar with a blender?
Make blended items that can be stored by using a mason jar with your blender.
Step 1: Remove the base of the blender
Remove the base from the blender's pitcher – the threaded base, the gasket, and the blade.
Step 2: Fill jar
Put whatever you want to blend or process into the mason or mayonnaise jar.
TIP: Always use a glass jar.
Step 3: Screw jar to base
Screw the jar to the base of the blender's pitcher, including the gasket and blade, making sure it fits tightly.
TIP: When you screw on the base, the blades should have at least ¼-inch clearance on all sides.
Step 4: Place jar on motor assembly
Place the jar on the blender motor assembly as you would the blender pitcher.
TIP: Use your blender and the mason jar to grind spices or coffee, to whip cream, or to make single serving drinks. When you are done, place a lid on the jar to store the contents.
Step 5: Turn on blender
Turn on the blender or pulse the blades until the food inside the jar is at the desired consistency.
Step 6: Remove jar and then blade
Remove the jar, turn it upright, and remove the blade assembly. Enjoy this efficient new tool for your kitchen.
