Commonly Asked Questions

Can I make this sauce without a blender? 

Sure thing! While a blender gives you the best results, you can go old-school and whisk vigorously by hand.

What if my hollandaise sauce is too thick? 

No worries! Add a bit of warm water, one tablespoon at a time, and blend until it’s just right.
