Nutribullet Nonsense

Just made a lovely mango smoothie and popped the Nutribullet apart to find the silicone “O” ring loose and (gasp!) under it was about three tonne of black crud.

Naturally I cleaned it, and reassembled, but thought I’d do a quick scout around the internet to see if there were any hints on sanitizing the fungus.

What I found was a litany of forum arguments between those who suggest periodical cleaning of the gasket, and those who think the ones that clean under it must be creepy dirty people “because mine never gets dirty”.

Curiously or perhaps not, the company says it should NEVER be removed and because sealing could be an issue, it doesn’t even sell the part, and it warns that any gaskets for sale are fake! It suggests replacing the cutter head unit every SIX months! ($20).

Me? I think I’ll take my chances wiht the $2.00 replacement gasket if that time comes.

So after all that… if you have a Nutribullet or similar, have you looked under the gasket of late?

Don’t know what a Nutribullet is. I just use a blender for making smoothies.

Smoothie? What is wrong with beer?

We have a thermonmix, it is easy to pull apart & clean.

Yep, used to do that - no difference except the blender was a bit heavy. Same thing with the blender though - the white gasket between the glass and the plastic base was surprisingly erk when I took it out of it’s seat! In that case, the mildew had actually penetrated into the plastic somehow, but at least it was a manufacturer’s spare!

And Cliff - don’t try it with beer, it’ll get all frothy and quite possibly blow apart. :wink:

I just dismantle the blender and wash all it’s bits including the gasket after every time I use it.
I thought everybody did that.

On our last one the gasket was “locked” in place by the mouldng, was a cow of a thing to get out so I only did it once in a while (twice in a while after I discovered the grunge!) It’s a bit like the Nutribullet one - if you never take it apart you’ll never know why you died of the plague!

we pulled the plate off the bottom of a bamix, supposedly sealed but full of black goop, think of it as building up your resistance to germ warfare…
