Blender Jar - Is Poly Really Better?
Posted 30 June 2012 - 08:52 AM
I don't blend spices. I don't blend rocks. What I do (as I've always done), is make sorbet base in the blender - that's sugar, water, flavorings, etc. Last night I decided to make the base for a lime sorbet. So into the blender went sugar, water, freshly squeezed lime juice and the grated zest of 1 lime. Next thing I know, cloudy blender jar.

As far as I know, only Oster has a tempered glass canister.

Is there any reason that lime juice and/or lime zest would have caused this?

Plastic blender jugs have three good points: Cheap, won't break into (sharp) slivers, and light weight.
That being said, they crack, scar very easy, and cloud up very easy. They can also absorb odours and stains much easier than glass . "Selected" family members have also managed to melt the jug, although they haven't 'fessed up as to how.
S/S is a very good option, although you can't see through it, but it is virtually bomb-proof.
