Properties and Benefits
Mixers are both stationary and manual. But manual models not too comfortable: you have to keep them in your hands all the time, and if it lasts long enough, your hands get numb and tired. Another thing - stationary mixer. You can simply turn it on and leave it to work, at this time doing very different things. These mixers come with a metal bowl and a plastic one. They are not very different - the metal is made of stainless steel, and the plastic is very durable. So they are made, as a rule, conscientiously.
Be that as it may, the choice of the model is not in what kind of bowl it has, but rather in functionality. After all, the main thing is what exactly you will do with such a machine in the kitchen.
Going to the store, or ordering a model via the Internet, it is worth remembering about several things. For example - a rotating bowl is needed in order to better stir the dough, and a powerful mixer can never cost a penny, and power is one of the most important selection criteria. The body material, of course, also plays a role.
Immediately pay attention to the volume and understand whether you have enough of such a bowl or it, on the contrary, will be large, and also check that the bowl has a lid, because it allows you not to spill the contents. The number and functionality of nozzles is important, if you use a little, and if you need a lot.
It is worth paying attention to some additional functionality, such as the presence of speeds, protection, duration of continuous operation, and so on. Not the last role is played by well-known companies, because trusting them, as a rule, is not disappointed. But there are a few points that should be considered more carefully.
Choosing a certain power, it is necessary, first of all, to understand what exactly it will need. If you are going to whip proteins or batter - you will have enough power up to 250 watts. But for something more serious, the device is needed already stronger.
The body is made of plastic, glass or metal. The plastic case is less durable and is most often present in the most budget models. However, in many models, plastic is durable. Glass models look good and strong enough, but poorly resistant to all sorts of damage. Metal is considered the strongest, because all the machines are made of stainless material.
A variety and functionality of nozzles is very important. There is a whisk to whip the cream, and special dough hooks, as well as nozzles to make mashed potatoes and chop the right products. Sometimes this includes an electrocautery.
It should also be clarified how much the mixer can operate continuously. Usually this time ranges from three to ten minutes and it all depends on what dishes you plan to do.
The more this or that model of speeds, the higher the number of different functions. Turbo mode increases the speed and allows you to deal with the lumps, but use it is advised not more than a minute. Pulse mode independently adjusts the speed of rotation of the nozzles. Protective function is a very useful thing. It protects the machine from overheating and automatically shuts off until the motor cools down.
If you are just starting to cook, and are not sure yet what exactly you will need this technique, you should choose something standard. Like Bosch MFQ 3555. And that's why - it costs not very expensive (from 2,600 rubles) and does its job well.
- With a rotating plastic bowl;
- Power 350 W;
- Speed - five;
- Pulse mode;
- Two nozzles: a whisk to beat and special dough hooks;
- Rubber grip.
It only remains to add that at its low cost, the mixer is more than quality and, with proper treatment, will serve you for a long time. Thanks to the hooks in the kit, you can not only beat the cream, but also knead the dough.
Any item, whether it be things in the kitchen or somewhere else, has its pros and cons. And blenders are, of course, no exception.
Model Philips HR1565 is good in many ways. She is stylish, works well, has a nozzle for the test and a place for winding the cord, as well as three speeds. But she has three drawbacks. Whether they are significant or not is up to you. Firstly, it is impossible to remove the mixer from the stand without releasing it from the nozzle. Secondly, it is extremely difficult to find spare parts for this car, therefore, in the event of a breakdown, it will either be thrown away or spent a lot of time in search. And thirdly, the beaters are not made of the strongest material and can easily break, especially if the mass that needs to be whipped is quite thick.
This model is slightly more expensive than the previous one.
In the event that you are accustomed to cooking a lot, varied and constantly, you will need something more powerful than previous models.
Brand Stadler Form not very well known in Russia, but in Europe he has long held a brand. His kitchen mixer Stadler Form Mixer Two SFM.330 is an order of magnitude more expensive than the previous ones, but there are more functions.

Users are most dissatisfied with the model Polaris. They say that the bowl does not rotate, as stated, and this is a very serious drawback. Another disadvantage is that the beaters do not reach the bottom of the bowl and, accordingly, cannot mix properly. Someone commented that this mixer is no different from the old Soviet ones.
Everyone is happy with the Stadler Form machine, a lot of good is written, both about the fact that she beats everything up quickly, and about durability. The only downside is the mixer is too noisy.
Philips and Bosch keep the bar - about as good reviews as bad reviews. Many people write about the lack of power and the fact that the beaters break.
Bork makes buyers only delight. Many write about the fact that he has become indispensable and performs a lot of work, for which he had previously worked on his own. The only disadvantage is that it is heavy, as it is made of metal.
