Maintaining an electric blender requires different steps, if you want your blender to last long, read and follow the rules in this article.

5 Ways to Maintain Your Electric Blender

1. Wash Your Blender Immediately

If you want your blender (inside and out) to retain it’s sparkling look; wash it, rinse and dry after blending. Avoid leaving your blender unwashed till you finish cooking. Immediately after blending, transfer what you have blended into another container and wash it.

If you notice, most blenders have a rubber-like material underneath, as the blender’s motor rotates, this rubber controls the blade. If you do not wash your blender immediately; the liquid from what you blend will sink down, after some days and months, this liquid will cause rust and affect a metal and screw holding the rubber, it will make the rubber remove as you blend (just like mine) ๐Ÿ˜ฆ , hence wash, rinse and dry your blender immediately!

2. Avoid Blending Hard Food Stuff With Your Blender

If you blend hard food stuffs, you are damaging your blender’s blade, and also causing scratches to the blender. Pound this hard food stuffs or slice it into smaller pieces before blending, this will help to maintain your blender. Food stuffs like beans or corn can be soaked in water to reduce it’s hardness, but I suggest you use a food processor like the one below.

3. Keep Your Blender Safe

Do you know the importance of properly storing your blender?

When you Store your blender rightly, it will serve you for decades, unless you wish to order a new one (for change);

  • avoid keeping your blender where it will slip off
  • avoid keeping the motor of your blender near liquid substances like water, juice or soup. if the motor gets into water, it can get damaged or cause electric shock (if not checked by a technician)
  • Avoid keeping the blender where kids can reach, because they can or will playfully pull it down.

4. Avoid Overloading Food Stuff into the Blender

Overloading makes the blender consume more power, this can damage the blender, the effect of overloading can be noticed when using a power generator, the blender will draw excess power than other appliances. Instead of overloading your blender; reduce and slice what you want to blend into smaller pieces, blend bit by bit, this will help to maintain your blender.

5. Do not Overrun Your Blender

My Panasonic blender came with an intsructional manual, I read it thoroughly; 1-2 minutes was it’s limit, exceeding this limit can make the blender to break apart. When blending, the motor exerts pressure on the blade and breaks down what you are blending, this causes a vibration, if not controlled within the time limit, it will affect the blender, to ensure that the device serves you for a long period; regulate it properly, avoid waiting till 2 minutes, I suggest 30 – 40 seconds because it has worked for me (for 11 years).

Maintain blender
I’m happy now, because the rubber-like stuff under my blender has been changed by a technician. Hurray!!! ๐Ÿ™‚
Maintain blender

I’ll make sure I follow the rules above, because I want my blender to serve me forever!. ๐Ÿ˜€

The Power of Breakfast

Almost everyone likes breakfast, especially those that can not endure the over night deprivation of food.

Breakfast is a self explanatory word; break the fast – “BreakFast,” keep away from food (fast) and eat after a period of time (break).

“Almost everyone likes breakfast, especially those that can not endure the over night deprivation of food.”

Food experts and nutritionists term Breakfast as the food eaten in the morning, Lunch – Afternoon and Dinner or Supper for night meals.

The type of meals we eat for breakfast is important, a well known food quote states that, “We are what we eat,” If we eat a wrong meal, it will definitely have a negative impact on our health for that day. A man that consumes Eba and Egusi soup as breakfast can not have a similar mental ability with one who ate Bread and Tea or even Rice and Stew.

“If we eat a wrong meal, it will definitely have a negative impact on our health for that day.”

Below are some local Food wey good for break fast
(Some local food good for breakfast)

majorly Nigerian foods

  • Rice and Stew
  • Rice and Beans
  • Rice and Vegetable
  • Rice and fried Plantain
  • Rice and Salad

Hence Rice is Good for Break fast

  • Bread and Tea
  • Bread and Stew
  • Bread and Egg
  • Bread and Beans
  • Bread and Pap
  • Custard with milk and bread or biscuit
  • Oat meal with milk

A man that consumes Eba and Egusi soup as break fast can not have a similar mental ability with one who ate Bread and Tea or even Rice and Stew.

Bread is a good breakfast as well

  • Beans and Pap
  • Beans and Plantain
  • Moinmoin (beans peeled, blended, seasoned, put in container and boiled) and pap
  • Bean cake (same as moinmoin but fried instead of boiling) and pap.
  • Beans is a healthy choice as well.

    According to http://www.Authoritynutrition.com

    “BREAKFAST HAS THE POTENTIAL TO SET YOU UP FOR A DAY OF GREAT ENERGY LEVELS, STABLE BLOOD SUGAR AND CONTROL OVER YOUR APPETITE AND WEIGHT.”
    “ON THE OTHER HAND, MAKING A POOR CHOICE AT BREAKFAST CAN LEAVE YOU HUNGRY AND STRUGGLING TO GET THROUGH THE REST OF THE DAY.”
    IT CAN ALSO INCREASE YOUR RISK OF DEVELOPING HEALTH PROBLEMS IN THE FUTURE.”
    “IF YOU’RE GOING TO EAT BREAKFAST, MAKE IT ONE THAT CONTAINS PROTEIN, HEALTHY FAT AND FIBER FROM UNPROCESSED WHOLE FOODS.”

    Thanks for taking your time to read this post, I believe you have gained from it, please ensure you share the post with your friends, thanks!

    Share your first cooking experience

    ๐Ÿ™‚ How was your experience on the first day you tried cooking?

    Trying things for the first time can be very tough at times, especially when it deals with an activity that consists of several steps like cooking.

    ๐Ÿ™‚ I tried my little Sis. (Esther) Yesterday (night), I say make she cook noodles (4pcs) for us to chop, ๐Ÿ˜€ she surprise.

    Almost 30mins gone and noodles never still done ๐Ÿ˜€ , “Esther! What’s up? Your noodles never done?”, I said.

    “Trying things for the first time can be very tough at times, especially when it deals with an activity that consists of several steps like cooking.”

    “I’m waiting for the water to get dried”, she replied. In between the cooking, she had come to me asking; “Bro. Paul, please can I add the seasoning immediately?”, hmm. . . ๐Ÿ˜€ “I don’t know, you’re the one in charge, cook it in your style, anyhow it comes out we shall eat”, I replied. I detailed her not to make it dry because the noodles soupy style was one of my favorites.

    At last Esther was through.

    VERDICT TIME

    ๐Ÿ˜€

    The noodles was ready, I had a taste, dished it and we ate.

    My Verdicts on Esther’s first independent cooking (without supervision):


    The noodles was;

    • cooked not half done
    • eatable
    • dry; against my soupy style demand
    • having a nice taste but almost over seasoned (almost).
    • almost over cooked (quite soft)

    Overall:

    She gave a good try and ๐Ÿ™‚ I rated her 52%

    Weldone! Esthy, you can do better, I know, Yes! You! Can! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    The Bottom Line:

    There’s a saying I emulate, “Practice makes perfect”, the more we do things, the better we become at it; our first trial might not be perfect but when the practice continues we can work towards perfection by learning from others, our errors and improving our performance.

    “The more we do things, the better we become at it

    In the comment box below you can drop your own first experience of cooking (how it went; please make it short), I’ll drop mine (personal) as well; watch out for it, really amusing and interesting, some how worse than my sister’s. ๐Ÿ˜€

    Remember:

    “Our first trial might not be perfect but when the practice continues we can work towards perfection by learning from others, our errors and improving our performance.

    Trending Campaign; #WifenotCook

    The “wife not cook” campaign sounds funny to me because those who came up with it must have gone through years of painful silence. cooking or being expected to cook has been seen to be burdensome, especially when he returns and the food isn’t ready; some men need to mind and watch their actions during such moments, yes we know that “an hungry man is an angry man” but remember that she is your love, you got married to take care of her and not to bully.

    Wives! Wives! Wive!, How many times did I type Wives!? trice or four times, please listen attentively, Husbands are meant to take care of their wives and vice-versa, He is the head of the home, you don’t expect him to cook, but that doesn’t mean he shouldn’t assist you neither does it warrant him to be harsh when you don’t, you should take care of him and understand one another.

    Finally, note that he can never call you a cook, if he can’t then why call yourself. We all have our duties at home, what if I, as a male child under my parents, raise a campaign like #childnotmaid or #childnotservant?, how would my parents feel?

    Let’s think about this. Peace.

    Kitchen Safety Tip #1: Beware of Grease Fire (Fire Caused By Oil )

    Kitchen Safety Tip #1: Beware Of Grease Fire (Fire Caused By Oil )


    “Never put oil on the fire and walk away, monitor it; if over heated, it could lead to fire outbreak.”


    BEWARE!

    What you should know on Fire Outbreak Caused by Oil:

    Fire caused by oil is referred to as grease fire, it occurs when oil reaches a particular temperature under heat. This depends on the type of oil used, every oil has a point of causing fire (flashpoint), according to culinarylore.com fire outbreak will automatically occour when the temperature of any oil reaches 400-435 degree Celsius (750 – 815 degree Fahrenheit).

    How to Quench Grease Fire (Fire Caused by Oil)

    • Use a dry powder, foam or carbon dioxide fire extinguisher, immediately.
    • WARNING!: Never use water to quench a grease fire, it will worsen it

    • Try to turn off the fuel source immediately (stove, gas cooker or any cooking device used).
    • If the fire has gone round the kitchen; close the doors and windows as you quench, this will reduce breeze or oxygen that spreads the fire, also ensure your fans are off.
    • Be! sensitive!, once you notice the fire getting out of control, call the fire service, call neighbours to assist, never wait till it gets out of hand before doing this.

    Remember this for Your Safety

    Cooking is an activity that requires your total attension, a little diversion can lead to great disaster (not our portion, In Jesus name), hence we should be alert.

    Remember this for Safety:

    “Safety first, never sacrifice your life or health for any kitchen activity or perishable food.” When I was learning carpentry at my school’s (Lagos State Polytechnic) entrepreneusship centre, Mr Felix (the instructor) always yelled at me, “Paul! Paul! Safety! first!,” by then I had already struck the hammer or used the saw on my fingers, ouch! ๐Ÿ˜€ , he taught us various methods of observing safety. Safety is very important in every field

    Note on the First Kitchen Safety Tip :
