How A Blender Really Works (VIDEO)

There's a lot more going in your blender than you might think. It might look like nothing more than a machine with a rather dull blade at the bottom, but once you turn that blender on, science is at work. The cutting of the blades only does a fraction of the blending. The rest is left up to unseen forces (like intense sheering forces, the implosion of bubbles, and more things we didn't really understand until now).

While we're sure that the science that's happening in our blenders is important to understand, we like the video above more for the amazing slow-motion graphics of foods being blended. Watch the video, another great one by ChefSteps, and you'll see how mesmerizing it can be. You may also learn a thing or two about your blender.
