How to make the right choice
When buying a blender, the most important thing is to understand the purpose for which it is needed. If you need an assistant for making pastry creams, pancakes, baby purees and soups - a simple submersible device with an average power level is enough. Model B704 or B781 will do.
Customer reviews of the B704 are controversial. Everyone notes a low noise level, a nice design, a good chopper performance and ease of mashing. However, many buyers complain about the little functionality for their price. In addition, in a number of reviews it is said about a useless nozzle for beating (“nothing can be beaten”), strong heating of the device and a short cord.
The less powerful, but more stylish B781 reviews are less, but they are mostly positive - a silent operation of the device, you can eat a froth from a milkshake with a spoon, an excellent design.
The budget model B703 is well suited for those who use the blender infrequently. Judging by the estimated customers, it heats, makes noise and sprays food. Although there are positive reviews from those who have not found a single minus in the model.
Stationary devices are suitable for large families, lovers of an active lifestyle and supporters of proper nutrition. If your diet regularly includes smoothies, casseroles based on vegetable and fruit purees, if you make homemade sauces and mayonnaise - an immersion blender will obviously not be enough. In addition, the stationary device copes well with cocktails, which means it is suitable for those who like to organize parties.
It is worth noting - no producer even tries to call the stationary blender “silent”. If the gadget is powerful, it will make a loud noise, you will have to accept it. And nevertheless, "silent" buyers consider stationary model B800. According to reviews, the blender copes with grinding to a solid four - in particular, the perfect “green smoothie” in consistency, which contains a lot of leafy vegetables, does not work. When working, you need to hold the blender with your hands, because it vibrates - this is also a reason for criticism. The bowl is not designed for small volumes - if the content is small, it immediately splashes on the walls.
At the same time, the model remains popular. Many consider it "semi-professional", good reviews about it are from bartenders who mix cocktails on this particular device.
About the fitness model B804 a lot of rave reviews. Buyers conquer cups with lids, in which you can not only take cocktails and smoothies with you, but also keep them in the fridge, for example, homemade mayonnaise or other sauces. There are no serious complaints about the quality of grinding. The model is suitable not only for adherents of sports nutrition, but also for families, where there are many children - everyone will get a cocktail in their glass.
The B501 blender-juicer is famous for its large bowl made of heavy-duty plastic, which looks very much like glass. It does not beat and is easy to clean. According to reviews, with mixing and grinding copes well. Juice extrusion nozzle is rather a useless bonus, because squeeze manually.
Anyone who likes to make dough for pancakes or beat the eggs, it is worth considering, the Bork technique does not have the traditional nozzle “blender whisk”. Whipping nozzle has a different shape. Such a "head" is in all submersible models, but the reviews about it are very contradictory. Mixers of the same manufacturer have a nimbus of the usual type.
