Things to Consider Before Buying a Mixer Grinder in India
Below are the things to consider before buying a mixer grinder in India.
Wattage of the motor
The higher wattage of the motor means a higher capacity to grind the ingredients at speed. Most of the mixer grinders are between 500W-750W, and companies like Morphy Richards offer up to 1000W motors. The higher the wattage mixer you select, the faster your tasks get done. Also, with a 500W mixer grinder, you can not grind the tough ingredients. If you are looking for grinding tough ingredients, consider buying mixer grinders of 750W or more.
Rotation per minute (RPM)
If the wattage of the motor is high, it offers high RPM. For Indian kitchen purposes, mixers with 18000-23000 RPM are considered good enough. If you need to grind hard ingredients, then it is recommended to pick a mixer with a higher RPM.
Speed controls are needed to grind the ingredients at different speeds and for various purposes. Some mixers offer knobs for changing the paces (which are hard to turn). On the other hand, some models come with a piano-style button system, making it easy to switch between the speeds. So, choose your comfort and pick the mixer accordingly.
Each mixer jar is designed for a specific purpose. For example, you cannot use a juice jar for preparing the batter. Likewise, you cannot use a grinding jar for making juice. Each brand offers different techniques to keep the ingredients in the jar locked without spilling. Some brands also use Active flow technology to ensure that the ingredients directly fall on the blade.
Before picking a mixer, it is essential to check the brand’s types of blades. However, most brands nowadays provide sharp blades made of stainless steel to avoid corrosion of the blades. Some brands also offer extra blades for replacement in the future. Make sure to choose the mixer grinder with high-quality stainless steel blades.
Most of the mixers are equipped with a circuit breaker at the bottom of the product. In case of any short circuit or overheating of the mixer, it auto switches off. It is crucial to see if the product has a circuit breaker.
Quality and Durability
Since mixers need to be used daily, it is essential to look at the quality and durability of the product. Ensure that the mixer and its jars are made of break-proof high-quality material, which comes in handy in case of any accidental drop of the mixer. Preethi mixer grinders are well known for their quality, whereas Sujata mixer grinders are known for durability.
Brand is one of the important factor to consider while purchasing a mixer grinder. There are many brands available in the market that produce mixer grinders but not all of them are good. While selecting the brand you must look at their reputation, after sale service, customer support and product quality. Some of the popular mixer grinder brands in India re Preethi, Sujata, Phillips, Bajaj, Morphy Richards, Usha, and Bosch.
Price is an important factor when buying any appliance, and the same applies in the case of a mixer grinder. A mixer grinder in India can cost you between 1500 and 10000. Price mainly varies as per motor power and other features. Like mixer grinders below 2000 generally have a 500W motor. For mixer grinders under 3000, you will get the 500 – 750W motor. In the below 4000 budget, you will get most models with 750W motor. When you go for a budget of upto 5000, most mixer grinders are between 750 – 1000W motor.
Most of the mixers are covered with a reasonable warranty period of 2-5 years (depending on the brand). Having a longer warranty period means your product can be repaired or replaced if any damage occurs. Some brands even offer a high warranty period of 7-10 years.
