Blenders can do a whole lot more than make smoothies. These three simple hacks ensure you get the most out of your equipment — and level up your skills in the kitchen. The best part? They’re super easy.

Make homemade cough syrup 


  • 2 cups fresh pineapple, chopped 
  • 1 tablespoon ginger, chopped 
  • 1 tablespoon honey 
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 cup water 
  • Juice of one lemon

Step one: Toss the ingredients in the blender, mix until liquid and smooth. 

Step two: Take a spoonful as needed to soothe a sore throat. Store in the fridge.

Grate fresh parmesan 

Grating parmesan by hand can be tedious and messy. You can streamline the whole process at the push of a button.

Step one: Just throw few chunks of parm into your blender, pulse and watch it turn into finely milled parmesan. It’s perfect for pasta, salads and snacks.

Perfect your scrambled egg game

Make your eggs look like an ad for the Food Network in a few easy steps. 

Step one: Put your desired amount of eggs in the blender. Add salt and pepper. 

Step two: Blend until frothy.  

Step three: Pour the eggs into a pan with melted butter. Stir slowly as they cook for extra silky eggs.
