What speed should I use to drizzle in the melted butter?
Start with the lowest speed setting when slowly pouring the butter and gradually increase to medium speed as it thickens to properly emulsify the sauce. Adding the butter too quickly at high speed can cause separation.
How do I fix a broken or separated hollandaise sauce?
If the emulsion breaks, you can attempt to re-blend the separated mixture on low speed while slowly drizzling in 1 tablespoon of cold water or lemon juice. This may help re-emulsify the sauce and make it smooth again.
Can I use a hand blender instead of a Vitamix?
While you can make hollandaise sauce with a hand blender, the variable speed settings of the Vitamix give you greater control over the emulsification process for the best, smoothest results.
How long will the hollandaise sauce keep in the fridge?
The sauce will keep for 3-4 days covered in the refrigerator. You may need to reheat gently before serving if the sauce separates.
