Best Mixer Grinders – Buying Guide

Blender: Blender a hand-held device that you can use as a mixer to mix cooking ingredients in semi-liquid state. This is helpful in beating eggs, churning butter milk, making milkshake, crushing ice etc.
Mixer Grinder is a combination of a mixer and a grinder. Mixer functionality mixes various cooking ingredients, usually in a semi-liquid state. Thus you can make milkshakes, churn butter milk etc. with this mixer functionality.
The grinding functionality grinds food ingredients into powdery form. You can use it to grind wet and dry ingredients. You can grind lentils, cereals, (dals are mostly cereals and lentils) and spices.
Thus, mixer grinder is a multipurpose appliance for making batter, puree, rice powder, dry fruits paste, vegetable paste etc.
Food Processor is one step further improvement on top of a mixer grinder. It comes with different attachments of jars, blades and choppers. You can use it to chop vegetables in different sizes, prepare atta dough, juice citrus fruits etc.
Now, let us look at various factors that you need to look at before buying a mixer grinder.
Power of the mixer grinder means indicates the amount of electricity that the motor will use. It also gives an idea about the strength of the motor. Power is measures in watts.
Most of the mixer grinders in India come with a watt-age of 450 to 1000 watts. 450-500 watt motor is ideal for grinding spices, onions, ginger, garlic etc.
However, it is not sufficient for kneading dough, making dosa batter or rice powder. You should buy a 750 watt mixer grinder.
Note: Higher watt-age motor requires more power and thus will result in higher power bills and it also produces more noise.
2. Number of jars
Second factor in a mixer grinder is the number of jars it can support.
A decent mixer grinder will come with at least three or four jars. You can use these jars for wet grinding, dry grinding, mixing spices, making fruit juice etc.

Good thing is that almost all reputed brands feature overload protection irrespective of their pricing. Thus, you should make sure that you buy a mixie from many reputed mixer grinder brands out there.
Speed of a mixer grinder directly effects its efficiency. It is measured in RPM- rotations per minute.
Speed of the mixer grinder is closely linked to its power watt-age. Higher power mixie have a higher chance of higher speed motor. Most of the mixer grinders come with a motor-speed of 1500 to 2200 rotations per minute.
These days, almost every mixer grinder comes with at least three speed settings. More speed settings means more convenience.
6. Blade types
There are different types of blades for different tasks. You should make sure that these blades are made of stainless steel for long lasting performance and durability.
Also, you should make sure that you clean these blades regularly for their long life.
Here are different types of blades-
- Chutney grinding blade- They Are Used for making different types of chutney

7. Vacuum foot cups
Vacuum foot cups act as an added safety feature that firmly grips the surface of the kitchen counter and prevents any skidding of the mixer. Thus, it ensures safe and hassle-free operation.
Every mixer grinder makes noise. Based on our experience, there is not much difference between different brands and models of mixer grinders. However, there are few models that give slightly lesser noise.
9. Build material
There are mainly three parts that you should look at to check for build quality- central unit (main body of the mixer grinder), jars and blades. You should make sure that the central unit is made of good quality plastic, while jars are made of stainless steel. If you get anything less than this, then you should not purchase the mixie.

11. After-Sales Service
You should make sure that you are buying from reputed brands. This ensures that spare parts are easily available and you get prompt and effective servicing as and when needed.
