Blending hot soup can be a dangerous affair! So please check out these links before you try it.
If you’re using a traditional blender:

If you’re using an immersion blender:
- First, treat the immersion blender with a great deal of respect. Keep it plugged in only when operating. Unplug before you try to clean or remove something stuck to the blade. There are many reports of accidents all over the web that come from forgetting this one simple rule.
- Press the trigger to blend only when the head is fully submerged. Otherwise you risk slinging hot food all over yourself and your kitchen!
Most of all maintain presence of mind while using blenders of any kind with hot liquids! Focus!
