Bought a new blender and the rubber ring really stinks!  I'm afraid that whatever is making the rubber stink will leech into my smoothies!

Any thoughts on this?

Thanks!

Soak it in vanilla? Really not sure what to suggest - some of us are just more tuned into stinky smells
I can still smell the plastic part of the kettle at work... It's a toss up whether to contaminate my drinking water by heating it in a part-plastic kettle, or kill it in the microwave (the water not the kettle )

I don't think the food is exposed to the rubber ring very much at all.  But, you can let it "gas out", if you'd like, before you start using it.

Can you be more specific about the odor?  Is it a chemical smell?

A soaking in baking soda/water might help neutralize odor,but perhaps like Vicki said,
letting it gas out...by airing it out.  Perhaps just putting it outside in the sun for a day might
be helpful.

Yes, it IS exposed to the food.  That's why I'm concerned.

The sun may dry it out too much....I think I will take it out of the blender and try soaking it in the baking soda / water first and see if it helps.

I was wondering if there are healthy alternatives to the rubber ring for the blenders.

Just thought - where is the rubber ring ~ at the top?
I have a small Braun blender & I inadvertently forgot to replace the rubber seal/ring in the top of the lid once...
As far as I can tell, unless you're blending liquids, it isn't all that necessary

Can you take the blender back and get a different one?

Ring is at the bottom...it's the ring that fits between the glass bowl and the plastic cap at the bottom.

Nope.  Too late for that, but all blenders have the same setup, as far as I've seen.

Do you think that it leeches into the smoothie?  Because of that fear, I pour it out as soon as it's made!
