How Does a Blender Work and What Can You Use It For?
A blender works by using a high-powered motor and blunt spinning blade to help liquify food, chef and nutritionist Serena Poon, CN, explains. This allows the gadget to successfully crush and blend frozen foods. Whether it’s a portable blender you can tuck in your work bag or a countertop appliance you can use again and again, chef and cookbook author, Dennis Prescott, says that blenders at their core are basically liquidizers, as they can mix, puree and emulsify foods with ease.
