Thorough Cleaning of Nutribullet
I have had my Nutribullet for over a month and love it. I use it twice a day. I have the new blade style with the gray gasket on the extractor blade. I have found that it is necessary to remove that gasket every week or so, and clean it with soapy water, rinse it, and replace it back on the extractor blade assembly. If you remove it , you will see that there is a buildup of material from the blasts, that are around the gasket. It cleans off very easily and only takes a few seconds. There is a small notch in the plastic that holds the gasket in place, and using a fingernail or the handle of a spoon, will pop the gasket right out. I am not sure if the gasket that is used in the older extractor blade, whicch I believe is black, is removable, so this onlyh applies to the gray one.
It’s all very well saying “keep our forums positive”, but we, the customers, seem to have a problem here.
I see no reason other than faulty design why food residue should build up under a gasket. I certainly see no reason why the container itself should retain an ugly smell. We have only used ours for blending fruit smoothies.
My next step is to take it in to work and run some cultures off the stuff that is under the gasket and see what’s growing there. I think, while I’m at it, I will do the same with the container.
