A Little Warning About Blendtec Pitcher

dixiegal | May 8, 2012 01:43 PM

I always appreciate the experiances of others with their cookware and appliances. Especially things that might damage them, so hear is mine.

I love my Blendtec blender and it works great. But. The other day I decided to grind up some gluten free crackers and some mixed grain rice and oatmeal to use in my meatloaf. I used to use just regular cracker and bread for my meat loaf, but now that I am gluten free, I am experementing with other grains.

Anyway, after blending all this up into to small bits, I noticed the inside of my pitcher all nicked and ruffed up. The pitcher is some sort of BPA free stuff. Looks like acrylic, but I don't know what it is. I am not sure exactly which grain caused the damage, but I really hate it. I wonder now if the inside of the pitcher is going to be like cut up plastic cutting boards and harber stains and bacteria.
I sure wish those pitchers were made out of glass.

I will say that that blendtec did a fine job cutting that stuff up. Sort of like a food processor.

Anyway, just a heads up about the Blendtec Wildside pitchers. Oh yea, And to replace this pitcher is about a 100.00 or more. Yikes.
