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?
