Do you put the blade in the microwave? I try to avoid this because it's not in its best interest.
I haven't had a problem with mine. You do have to cut the items down - I wouldn't put the whole jalapeno in there but chop it into two or four pieces before putting it in the MFP.
I know it has been in the dishwasher a few times. (I love my husband, I love my husband) I am wondering if there is anyway to sharpen the blades.
oooooh, thanks for reminding me. That recipe looked really good when I was going through the cards. My indecision on dinner has gone away!I made the falafel from the mfp recipe card pack today. YUM!
My MFP has water stuck inside. I haven't submerged it in water, and I've only used it twice...I took out the little rubber plugs to try and let it drain, but so far no luck
Did you run it under water? Any amount of water close to the center piece can result in water inside of it. I usually take the kitchen brush and scrub off what I can and wipe off with a lysol white.
Try putting the lid on the bowl- without the blade, and pump the handle a few times. I saw someone else say they managed to get the water out- but I don't exactly remember how. It seemed it was as simple as pumping the handle a few times....worth a short. Can't hurt!
I made a fruit dip in the MFP with cream cheese and marshmallow fluff and one of our sprinkles. Mixed up great. Looked great. I could.not.get.the.blade.out.of.the.bowl. I ended up putting my fingers down into the dip to get it out (gloves on of course, but still...). It wasn't pretty but people were still impressed.
I tried to use mine twice to blend butter and oats for apple crisp. It recommended a food processor and I thought he MFP would be perfect for it. Epic fail!
Since my knees were not up to me searching for my real food processor, I resorted to the tried and true method of cutting the butter with two butter knives.
Beth was it an 8 oz. jar of fluff and and 8 oz. block of cream cheese? Maybe a 2 tsp of sprinkles?
