Therefore, the utility of this type of home appliances does not cause any doubts.
Devices of the French brand Moulinex are distinguished by reliability and versatility. And the range of models from this company allows to satisfy almost any requests.
There are two main models of blenders: stationary and submersible.
Stationary models are also called shakers because of their ability to whip different cocktails wonderfully. Such devices are integral with the bowl, which is made of glass or plastic.
The main advantage of this model is that during operation it can be placed on the table and not held in the hands. Convenience brings and the fact that all work stationary blender automated. In addition, stationary devices have a self-cleaning function, due to which it is possible to significantly save time on washing equipment.
Manual, or so-called submersible blender, consists of a body and a knife-nozzle. The device is immersed in the container and crushes the products. The body of this unit can be both plastic and metal. In this case, preference should be given to models with a metal housing - this will provide an opportunity to work with hard and hot ingredients. Models made of metal, more durable and more durable.
The main advantage of the immersion blender is its compactness. This is especially true for mini models. An additional bonus is the versatility of such blenders: very often various additional nozzles are supplied with them. This greatly expands the capabilities of this device, allowing it to perform the functions of a blender, chopper and mixer, giving the device a status of 3 to 1. Plus, the price of these devices is relatively low.
The disadvantages of a hand blender should be attributed to their low functionality, compared with stationary counterparts. The downside is the fact that the cooking process does not exclude the possibility of splashing food. In addition, during operation, the blender of such a model will have to be held all the time. If the blender is powerful, then the strength of its vibration with subsequent recoil in the hand will be great, which can cause some discomfort.
Often, manual models cannot be repaired under warranty, as they have a non-folding case. And if the model is collapsible and is subject to repair, service centers may have problems with components.
Multiblender is the most versatile device type. This is an immersion type blender with a whole arsenal of different nozzles and accessories. Typically, the kit includes various beaters, knives of various sizes, a measuring glass, a cap and several containers. Therefore, it is not surprising that with the help of such a device you can prepare products of almost any hardness.
The main characteristics of the models
Particular attention when choosing a blender should be paid to such performance characteristics as its power. It is on the power of the device depends largely on its purpose.
So for a boiled vegetables and fruits, proteins, sheik and cream, a low-power blender is quite suitable - only 250-350 W. Before working with a blender, boiled vegetables or fruits should be cut. If you have to work with raw fruits, then they are better to grind.
For grinding more solid products, you should choose a blender with more power - 450-700 watts. The device of such power will easily cope with nuts, root vegetables, hard vegetables, meat and cheese. Ingredients must be pre-cut into pieces.
High power blenders (750-1000 watts) can chop raw meat, prick ice, and also serve as a meat grinder, coping with sausages, cheeses and vegetables of varying degrees of hardness.
It is very important to use the purchased device for its intended purpose. Otherwise, the blender may break. So, using a low-power blender to prepare solid products, there is a risk of breakage of the plastic parts of the device, blunting of a knife or failure of the motor.
Power is one of the most important indicators of the quality of the device: the larger it is, the more effectively the blender will perform its functions.
An important indicator of the convenience of a blender - the presence of capacity in the kit with the device. At the same time the volume of a bowl can vary from 400 ml to two liters. Select the volume of the vessel should be based on the number of households.
Usually the bowl for such models is made of plastic, glass or metal. According to experts, all the above materials have their pros and cons, which generally do not affect the performance and quality of the blender. Plastic is the most affordable and unbreakable material, glass is easy to clean and does not absorb food flavors, while metal is a compromise option that combines the best qualities of the first two materials.
The number of additional nozzles significantly expands the capabilities of the blender, making its culinary abilities perfect. But not everyone needs to have a huge number of various nozzles, so in this matter should focus on the user's personal needs. As practice shows, the optimal set of nozzles should include: a whisk, shredded, nozzle for splitting ice.
And the last aspect, which is an extremely important characteristic of the device - the number of speeds. In this case, everything is unambiguous: the more speed modes, the better. At a minimum, in a quality blender there should be three speeds that can be changed during work. The smoother the blender will go out of one speed limit and switch to another, the more convenient it is to adjust the grinding level of the ingredients.
These characteristics are quite suitable submersible blenders Moulinex Quick Chef. The models of this line have the highest power - from 800 W to 1000 W; it is enough for grinding very solid products. The glass in this case is metal, the volume of which is 800 ml. The kit includes a mini chopper, a whisk and a measuring cup, but there is no ice splitting tool. A big plus is the presence of from 10 to 20 speeds, their switching mode, turbo mode, a convenient display and a protective mudguard.
Blender Moulinex OptiPro 600w has similar characteristics. This is also an immersion model made of high quality stainless steel. It is distinguished from the previous model by less power - 700 W, which also allows the device to cope with tough products. This device is equipped with six speeds that can be conveniently switched. The device is equipped with a pulse mode and turbo mode. The kit includes a mini-mill.
The Moulinex Infiny Force submersible blender is notable for its wide assortment of nozzles for mashing, mayonnaise, the presence of various beaters, a mini chopper and a separate blending nozzle. Its power is, like the previous model, 700 watts.
Ultra Compact is the most compact submersible model in the Moulinex range. This is not a very powerful device (450 W) with one speed limit. Included with this model are only the whisk and chopper.
Moulinex Aura Mix Go Pro - Stationary Blender. Its power is only 300 W, which makes the possibilities of this device extremely limited. However, for grinding fruit, boiled vegetables, beating eggs, cooking shakers, this model is quite suitable. It is noteworthy that, despite the low power, the knives of the device are suitable for grinding ice. This model is the best option for cooking breakfasts and various desserts.
For working with solid ingredients, the stationary model Vivacio from Moulinex is suitable, since its power is 600 watts. This blender is equipped with five high-speed modes that can be adjusted. This device is equipped with a very convenient lid, which can be fixed in three positions: in the straining mode, in the fully open or closed state.
The Moulinex Faciclic blender is inferior to the previous model in power as well as in the number of speeds. Its power is 500 watts, and the speeds are only two. It is worth noting that this model is very bulky.
The model Moulinex maxi is also very voluminous. This disadvantage is compensated with a high degree of power and a solid amount of speeds, which allows this device to work quickly and with a large volume of products.
But Fruit Sensation is probably one of the most compact models from Moulinex. However, due to its small capacity and small volume of the bowl, it is best suited for making fresh juice or cocktails, designed for a maximum of two people.
In addition to blenders that perform traditional operations, there are also units equipped with additional functions.
Presented on the market, for example, Supovarka in the form of a blender. This modern appliance can simultaneously heat and boil food. This effect is achieved by combining a blender and an electric pan.

Blenders with an additional function to cook food for steam are also highly demanded. In this case, the ingredients are laid in the bowl, undergo a steam treatment process, and then turn into puree.
