Summer is a wonderful period when we can enjoy sweet berries and fresh juicy fruits. At such a time, most of all you want to make a delicious fruit or berry cocktail or smoothie with healthy ingredients. For this we need a good mixer with a volume bowl. One of the leaders in the production of high-quality household appliances and, in particular, mixers, can rightly be considered the company Bosch.
Bosch is a German manufacturer of household appliances, whose products are distinguished by quality, reliability and long service life.
Bosch Mixers with a bowl have high power and are representatives of an average price segment. They have many different nozzles that are easy to use.
How to choose a high-quality mixer that will help you prepare cocktails quickly and will serve you for more than one summer, we will explain in this article.
Criterias of choiceOf course, the more volume the mixer bowl will have - the better, especially if you are going to prepare cocktails and smoothies often. However, the bowl has indicators of the so-called total volume and how much liquid can actually be poured into it. The actual figure means how much the mixture can fill the bowl before it starts to splash. Pay attention to this moment.
The speed of mixing the ingredients depends on the power level. The more powerful the mixer, the more turns it makes per minute, and the faster it mixes the necessary products. A good figure is in the range of 350 - 500 watts.
Nozzles and their functionality
Think about what products you will mainly prepare, take into account all the existing needs of the family. For example, a device with a rotating glass will mix the ingredients much faster. If speed is of utmost importance to you, then your choice is a planetary mixer with a bowl.. Or perhaps you want to often prepare vegetable and fruit purees, which are so useful for children. Then you will need the appropriate nozzles.
Of course, the mixer with a metal base (especially stainless steel) will be much stronger and more durable than plastic. When choosing, pay attention to the integrity of the coating, inspect it for cracks.
You also need to check the device for malfunction. To do this, you need to ask to turn it on and see how it works: whether the nozzles are hooked over the bowl, the buttons are pressed well and the speeds and modes of operation vary, or the bowl turns. The device must be checked at idle, before buying it.
It is difficult to say which mixer is definitely the best. Each has its own unique positive and negative sides.
Everyone knows what hand mixer and, perhaps, at least once everyone used it in his life. Ordinary household mixers with a bowl are quite cheap (up to 10 thousand rubles), but they have one big disadvantage - when using them hands get very tired, especially if you need to process a large number of products, for example, make a lot of cocktails or mashed potatoes for a large family . In order to simplify this process, stationary mixer models have been developed.
