Shown is a double blender from Braun
Our blender looks like the part on the right

The cover (shown with a "chimney") is the part that has chipped off while removing it. It got stuck and then broke

I have no idea what kind of plastic it is

Since it is the cover that will be glued, I do hope it won't have much contact with food. But you can't be too sure.

That clear part could be Plexiglas (or whatever brand name that material may have). In that case it could be glued with aceton if you did not loose too much material. Aceton disolves the surface of the material and gives a good bond when evaporated. Use it very sparingly though.
If you want to and have room for it, you could still reinforce it.
If it isnīt broken, it doesnīt have enough features yet.

I think Acetone = nail polish remover. Right ??

I've had good results repairing otherwise impossible (?) to repair plastic stuff with UV activated Bondic:

There are other brands of the same/similar stuff, I think.

Yes, acetone is nail polish remover, among the other things it removes. It should only be used with excellent ventilation; it is not good stuff to inhale.

I've not heard of using it to attach broken plastic things back together.

I didn't think about using acetone, I have used solvents to fuse plastic as long as it's not polycarbonate. It is incompatible with acetone.

I would go with a epoxy just because I usually have it on hand. I have not used the UV activated glue that Famdoc mentioned but I have heard that it works well.

I'm 100% in favour of fixing things.

But sometimes it's a lot easier to snag a cheap replacement at a charity thrift shop or garage sale.

Replacements are already there.
I have bought another blended already

This thread is only because of my OCD of not throwing anything that can be fixed, especially when 99% of the appliance is OK, and only a small part is broken.

The UV thing is not available around here, or maybe I never paid attention to it.

I will go with epoxy.
