Can You Clean Gluten Out Of A Food Processor?

Recommended Posts

I've had so many questions lately, as I have done so much more cooking/baking on my own and I am getting extremely overwhelmed. 

 

I know glass and stainless steel are the best for cooking in...I use Pyrex for a lot of baking and I recently bought a set of stainless steel pots/pans. 

 

My boyfriend got a food processor from his parents. He wasn't sure if it was used or not - but when we took it out to use it it had crumbs/dust in the top and brown stuff down the sides (looked like soda maybe? Not at all sure)

 

I do have slight OCD (that has definitely gotten worse in terms of worrying about cc) so I didn't deal with it and we put it away. I am fine hand washing or throwing the parts in the dishwasher (assuming they are dishwasher safe) but I am not sure if that will be enough to really clean it. I know food processors are expensive and I don't want to just give it back if there is a way we can use it. My boyfriend still eats gluten so I think that is part of the reason I am finding it difficult to relax while preparing all of this food, and trying to prepare it safely. 

 

What is the general consensus? I have no idea how old this processor is, how many times it was used, what it was used for - etc. I'm not even positive if it was used, but it is definitely dirty. 

 

My BF said he thinks his mother got rid of it because she tried to use it and it wasn't strong enough.

 

Thanks in advance!

Food processors are made of hard plastic typically and I personally wouldn't have a problem using a well cleaned used one. You'll probably want to give extra attention to scrubbing the blades.

Thanks guys! I'll have to look at it when I am at his house again. He already told his mom we didn't want it, though (using the excuse that it wasn't strong enough) but if I can salvage it I will. Apparently he was looking into blenders/processors on his own since he doesn't know what to get me for Christmas, lol!

 

And I should be getting my spiralizer tomorrow, I can't wait to make zucchini pasta!
