I am looking to get a new Mixer Grinder for house use.

There are so many brands out there with different features.
Hence, it is difficult to select the right one.

Please give your suggestion/review.

Also little burning smell noticed everytime.. used 1 time for batter 3 times for chutney..

Pls suggest, return period will end in 2 days.

Not sure about heating issue, but I bought singer mixi few days back, its user manual mentioned that burning smell may come initial couple of days however it is normal. I did not observe such smell coming from it though.

Again, bought Sujatha dynamix.

Facing same heating issue, just for 1 min of usage, jar walls getting heated.

Can someone please check their mixer and see if it is common ?

Brought billion mixer grinder from Flipkart. Can vouch for it and probably the top notch billion product must be their mixer for sure….

No i am using from past 6 months. No heating issue. Only when you grind hard spices or pulses for long minutes it gets heated and that is normal.

Ok. How’s it? Please share your review.
I am also looking for a mixer grinder and every mixer which I like has some negative reviews. This one says that it doesn’t have jar lock.

what would be main use? like is it a big family or business with lots of daily use?
or
just usual light use, small family?
and
budget?
and jar lock as in the base being latched on (to the main unit OR just tge cap not having those bolt type thing?

in our family🙄 everything…. EVERYthing🙄🤐 from daily chaach (buttermilk) to sugar grinding to preparing idli/dosa batter (or puranpoli dough) has been done using mixers (mixie as she calls😄 it)
initially she had this Braun one (received as a marriage gift she says) which was hardly 350-400watt (but German made)
and
somehow, except the bush replacements, it survived for decades!
and now
just about a year or moee
she ooted foe this Philips one (which i thought looked blehh🤢 as compared to the Braun one)
but it is a massive 750W i think.
hmm okay, got the name .. Philips HL7756 i think.

this http://amazon.in/dp/B01G...PA

the smaller jar is about fine for spices or stuff.
the largest one is pretty big (and not used much)
the middle one is daily in use, but i think had some issue with a rivet screw getting loose (she said there was a play between the jar and the bottom/bakelite thing)

this happened within a few months.
but then Mom has the ‘habit’ of directly turning the speed knob to three (99% of the time).

brand replaced the jar.
as such the motor is holding up
even when abused :-p
grinding sugar (crystals) can usually mess up the blades badly and needs breaks (else motor might be conked off)

i xannot comment on all these new (fake?) brands that were not even there 20 years back… but i feel 800W is an overkill.
(even 750 watt is)
okay sorry, that link isnot MorphyRichards but Kent (equally shady)

i still feel that a good Sumeet or other old brands or maybe Inalsa will be good balance between price performance and looks.
i can personally vouch for Sumeet, Inalsa and few of our old Indian brands👌🏽

but first it will be prudent to take local feedback (from other users) as to whether these beands rely more on thirdparty service centres or have their own setuo or just send some technicians.
service experience and quality differs from area to area.

Mine is small family. Main use is to make idli dosa batter, grind coconut etc.
I have a Sumeet mixer at home and about 20 year old. Still no major issues. Making some sound lately so my mother asking to buy a new one.

Mine working fine.
I did not want plastic body at all since it gets cracks.
I am using it for masala grinding, wet grinding, etc.

tweeeeenty years🙂😇

then you don’t have to give it much thought.
just buy her😊 another Sumeet only.

and yeah, i forgot to add that some food processor jar of Inalsa
•••though it was acrylic or some polymer.. it was sold as unbreakable.
so if some here feel that acrylic jars have too much risk
then it is not so.

however after glass, metal jars are better overall.

i still suggest, auntyji😇 could be given a proper brand (besides Sumeet)
Braun might not be the same anymore (products sold in Asia are usually inferior to the ones sold in Europe)
but main reason is that Braun management/ owners changed.
whereas Philios is.. well Philips.

let her🙇🏻 physically have a look at options in some store (if needed)
then buy it online or offline.
(be it Sumeet or any other)

Important: please do not let the older Sumeet go to some domestic help (maid) or for recycling/ scrap.
Rather get it fixed from a PROPER olace later and keep it🙂
Such motors and winding do not come anymore.
(the gauge is reduced. so even if it is copper, things are not the same)
and
one can see😉 if it goes another 20 years🙂

You can use it for every damn thing doesn’t matter.

What matters is quantity.

Quantity of green masala for a 2 person and 6 person will be different. About 3 times more.

Start learning to cook 😂

Purpose of spice grinder is to get fresh masala every time you cook. A family of 16 won’t need more than a handful of masala – 100 gms max .

Well, sorry to burst the bubble. You cannot use every damn thing in every damn mixer. I know of a friend, who bought a 400w(similar wattage) mixer grinder for her need. She stays alone FYI. She used to borrow my mixer grinder(700w) every time she wants to grind a coconut. And, as the hardness of material to be grinded increases, the wattage need to be increased irrespective of number of persons who eats that or throws it out

I just cannot stop laughing at your logic.

A thumb rule thought out by manufactures after decades of manufacturing the products and you are challenging their logic… congrats 🏆.

That FYI lady is weird, don’t give your mixer grinder to he again. She don’t want to damage her own mixer for some every damn thing you don’t know about.

350w motor is good enough for 2 people for grinding coconut or dosa batter or wet green masala no problem for 10 years of regular usage.

But was she grinding the outer hard shell? LOL

Well no offence meant or taken. Just my 0.02$.

But I cannot accept the theory of wattage as per number of persons. It is the hardness of material vs motor power capability, irrespective of the produce eaten by one person for one hour or two person for 30 min.

Also I borrow her grinder at times, because it came with a 4 blade jar which is good for chutney (grinding consistency). My food processor did not come with one.

FYI I’ve had working experience with a few manufacturers in this line when they are working on a prototype model with a bldc motor instead of universal motor inside. Although we don’t deal in coconuts, spices, we talk in power(torque, wattage), speed, overall mechanical power output vs electrical power inputs etc things.

Bldc motors don’t work well when hot so they aren’t used in mixers grinders

Not necessary. They do work when hot. That apart, getting hot is not a mandate for mixers. Any motor usually get hot when it is working continuously

Please provide the links. Planning to buy during BBD
@andromeda @hsmhsm @dharmanath481 @Akash115 @aIIianc3 Please suggest. Price is up to 5000.

Go for wet grinder. Hands down.

A mixer makes the batter by chopping the pulses at high speeds. But a table top grinder grinds it the traditional way at slow speeds and also aerates it while grinding which results in fluffy idlys. This aeration is something that is missing in mixer process.

In the wet grinder category, I liked the elgi ultra make due it the conical stone unlike others which are cylindrical.
