NEVER put anything hot in your Blenko and we strongly recommend that you do not prepare any of your recipes in your Blenko either.

Please check back we will be adding many recipes that have been submitted by the Blenko family, employees and collectors. We want everyone to enjoy our website and this was considered a fun adventure for the "Blenko Four"
