My blendtec plastic blender has a lot of scratches? Is it safe to use?

edited September 2012 in Other Stuff

I'm thinking of the issue where chemicals from the plastic could leak into the liquid. After blending I don't let the liquid sit for more than a few seconds. Does anyone know if chemicals could still leak into the liquid?


  • Difficult to know for sure.

    I am about to buy another blender as my plastic one shattered... I was very sure plastic got into my food on that occasion : ) i was just wondering how it would handle large chunks of coconut. and it exploded. So this time I'm going for a tougher glass model.

    these machines have to pass certain tests before sale so do not be too worried, just follow the guidelines(unlike what i did). it may say "only blend soft fruit and veg" and "only food under 70 degrees". try and find the PDF online if you do not have a manual at hand or if you have spare cash buy a glass version.?
