The brand BORK line of household mixers is represented by several models. The company does not pursue assortment, but focuses on product quality. The catalog contains information on two rows: the 800th series of planetary submersible mixers and the 700th series of hand-held devices for whipping dough and creams.
The range of hand mixers includes the standard E700 and B782. The first is a conventional mixer with nozzles, the second can perform the function of a blender using the nozzle for purirovaniya.
The 250 W model has 3 types of nozzles and works at 9 speeds. A distinctive feature is the presence of a timer up to 15 minutes. True, it is not clear why you need a timer on a hand mixer. Maybe not to run the kitchen and know how much time whipped cream?
Included are nozzles, scrapers for batter, whips for the cream, dough mixers for thick dough. All this is placed in storage in a plastic container on which the motor unit is placed.
Despite the cost of the mixer, its body is made of plastic coated with metal. On the case is a backlit display to track the mode of operation and the technical condition of the device. In addition, it has protection against overheating and a pause in operation without resetting the timer.
The weight of the device is 1.7 kg, the cord length is standard - 1.5 meters. There is no separate compartment for the cord; it is proposed to roll it up and pack it in a container for nozzles. Not very hygienic. Produced device in China.
Thanks to this 2-in-1 device, the manufacturer offers to save space in the kitchen. In terms of power, the model does not differ from its younger brother - 250 W, the number of nozzles for the mixer - 3 pieces (kneading machine, whisk, anti-sprinkler nozzle), plastic leg of a blender for beating vegetables, purees, curds. This model has only three speeds.
All nozzles are made of steel. The corollas have 4 pairwise contour, which is better to saturate the cream with oxygen than the standard. The spray nozzle allows you to knead the dough and cream in shallow containers, without spilling the contents over the walls.
The weight of the mixer is 1.5 kg, a balanced center of gravity prevents the hands from getting tired while working, the stand on the end makes it easy to store the device in an upright position. The body is made of aluminum and plastic, the country of manufacture is Switzerland.
The planetary mixers of the company are represented by two models BORK E800 and 810.
A popular model with high customer ratings. This unit is equipped with a standard 1000W motor for a device of this type. It has 12 speeds, 4 nozzles for different products, a bowl with a capacity of 4.7 liters of stainless steel.
The weight of the mixer is 7.9 kg, its body is made of metal, and the cord length is 1 meter. The position of the mixer is predetermined - near the power supply, which is not always convenient. The storage compartment for nozzles is not provided.
The mixer is equipped with a protective lid on the bowl, which does not accidentally insert your fingers into it while working and prevents the cream from splashing.
In the opinion of users, the model copes with any kind of dough, including bread dough, the main thing is to maintain recommendations for kneading speed. The bowl after the thick dough is removed from the stand with difficulty, but such a strong fixation does not allow it to jump and leave while working.

This model takes into account the wishes and comments of users of the previous model. The main characteristics remained the same: 1000 W of power, metal case with a metal bowl of 4.7 liters, 12 speeds of work, 4 nozzles. Of the new features, a timer has been added that can be set from 1 minute to 1 hour, 4 modes of operation, and the power cord is slightly extended - up to 1.15 meters.
The planetary mixer allows you to smoothly adjust the speed during operation, and also has a constant speed control mode. Time is set on the timer both in direct and in countdown mode. The electronic “brain” of the device itself selects the mode of operation of the engine and the speed of mixing, depending on the density of the dough and the number of ingredients.
The package includes nozzles:
- for whipping liquid mixtures - eggs, cream, cocktails;
- dough mixer - prevents high-density dough for bread, pizza and pies;
- confectionary nozzle for light mixes - creams and mashed potatoes;
- Cook - prevents the dough from confectionery mixes, cookies, allows you to make the icing.
The good news is that the mixer is quiet enough for such high power and practically does not create vibrations during operation. The exception is too steep dough. The nozzle for protection against spraying is in addition provided.
The display on the case gives information about the four modes of operation (kneading, mixing, beating and foaming) and shows the code names for the inclusion of a pause, overheat protection mode, and overload protection of the engine.
How to choose
To decide what type of mixer you need, you need to determine the time that is spent on baking a week. If you rarely bake - once a couple of weeks, then it does not make sense to take bulky professional models of planetary mixers.
The hand mixer is convenient because it can be used with any type of cookware, except teflon. It can be immersed in a tank of different depths, the mixer is not tied to the stand, the degree of immersion depends only on the user. It is compact, easy to store in a closet, does not take place on the table. His cord is longer than that of stationary models.
The disadvantage usually manifests itself in a small capacity - it will not be possible to knead the dough on bread. The arm gets tired from long work, although BORK hand mixers have an offset center of gravity, which reduces the load on the wrist. When interrupting work, it is necessary to think about where to put the mixer so as not to stain the table. BORK manned his models with a stand on the end.
Stationary planetary models - a magic wand for those who bake to order or almost always indulge in seven home-made bread, buns and pies. Their great advantage is high power and, accordingly, a reduction in the mixing time from 10 to a couple of minutes. In addition, mixers allow you to fill the food directly in the process of preparing the dough through the hole in the lid. Hands at the same time remain free.
Special mode for all types of mixer - turbo mode. It is used for short-term mixing of ingredients at the maximum speed allowed. The operating time of this mode is not more than 5 seconds, because the load on the motor is enormous. It is used mainly to eliminate lumps in the dough or mashed potatoes.
Pulse mode to accelerate the rotation of the blades is used to achieve the best result due to a sharp change in the speed of the whisk. The more pressing the button, the faster the speed. The hostess can adjust the degree of grinding or mixing force pressing a finger.
Both Bork stationary and hand mixers are reliable instruments with the most necessary functionality.
