70's Blender Redo


My friend bought herself a Ninja Blender so she gave me her old one. It didn't match my kitchen so I fixed it. Plus, since I took it all apart anyway, I cleaned off the rusty parts and tightened screws and now all the speeds work beautifully! I hope she doesn't want it back.

Free Blender + $3.99 for can of spray paint for plastic + $3.99 for Naval Jelly to remove rust on inside parts.

A NOTE ABOUT PAINTING THE LID: I only sprayed the top and sides of the lid but I ran water through the blender at different levels and different speeds just to be on the safe side and the liquid never got to the lid. Then, I washed the canister and the lid in hot soapy water to make sure it didn't come off and we're good. However, after several comments, a lady from Sugar Land, TX suggested putting plastic wrap under the top before blending. It'll make for easier clean up and keep the worry out of the paint tainting anything.

I used a black sharpie to cover up all the scratches on the face plate but I'm going to by some black, silver, and red enamel paint from the model shop next time I go into the city. I think she's beautiful!!!!

Have a question about this project?

    From all types of blenders which are presented on the market, I choose hand/immerse blenders. They are more practical and convenient in use. I like KitchenAid manufacturer, you can find a lot of information on the Internet (bestadvisor.com or techradar.com). Thanks to the sturdy construction of KitchenAid models, you can even crush the ice. Most other models cannot cope with such hard ingredient. This is where Kitchenaid surely stands out. You will be able to prepare different variants of refreshments!
