Remove the blender from the base. Remove the lid. Unscrew the bottom component, being careful with the blade. Remove the gasket seal and the blade.
The jar of the blender is the main portion and where most of the cleaning will need to happen. Use warm soapy water and a dish rag or sponge. Rinse thoroughly. Dry carefully. The jar of the blender can also be washed in the dishwasher on the top rack, although hand washing is faster and reduces the risk of breakage and scratching.
The gasket seal, cutting blade, and locking ring all need to be washed as well. Use warm soapy water and take care to watch the sharp edges of the blade. Rinse thoroughly and dry.
If your blender sat for awhile without being cleaned, you may have some dried stuck on food to contend with. To make it easier on yourself, mix a 1:1 ratio of baking soda and water, and run it through the assembled blender. Dump out the solution. Take apart the blender. Follow the steps above for washing the components.
Wipe down the motor/base of the blender with a warm, damp cloth. Never submerge the motor/base in water. It is not safe to put in the dishwasher, either. A wipe-down is all it needs. Remember to wipe down the cord periodically and to check it for damage.
If you use your blender often enough, store it on your countertop or in another easily accessible location. If your blender only makes it out for special occasions, store it in a less accessible place.
