Vitek mixers are very popular with hostesses due to their reliability, attractive price and pleasant appearance. All devices can be divided into two categories - stationary (with a bowl for beating, working autonomously) and manual (or submersible, which must be kept on weight).
The manufacturer vouches for the high quality of the assembly of its products, provided by a rigid control system, and gives it a guarantee of one year. Each batch of products is tested by European tests and in RosTest, and also receives an independent expert assessment.
Today, Vitek presents more than 10 models of various mixers, most of which are manual.
The most simple VT-1410 W and VT-1404 W models come complete with dough hooks and an additional turbo mode. These are simple, lightweight, convenient devices, with low power (250-300 W), which perform their functions well.
Model VT-1421 CH professional - the only one in the entire range is made in a steel case and has a capacity of 600 watts.
The VT-1411 CH, VT-1404W and VT-1404Y models have a pulse mode and turbo mode, as well as a blender attachment, which significantly increases their cost, but also makes it much more functional.
Stationary models are more powerful (more than 600 W) and, therefore, more productive than hand mixers. They have different material and volume of rotating bowls. For models VT-1417 ST, VT-1418 ST and VT-1415 BK, bowls are made of steel, and for VT-1416 ST and VT-1409 W plastic.
Tips for choosing
Choose a mixer should be based on how often you plan to use them, and that, basically, you have to beat. If you need this device once a week or less, then it is better to stop at a manual compact model that does not take up much space in the closet.
If you regularly beat eggs for an omelet for breakfast or prepare vegetable mashed potatoes for a child every day, it is very convenient to have a stationary model with a spacious bowl.
Batter for pancakes and pancakes is convenient to knead with special hooks for dough, which are included in almost every model, but it is better when the mixer has sufficiently high power (more than 500 W). The blender attachment handles all the tasks of a full-fledged blender, but in this case the only drawback is an open bowl from which splashes can fly.
Also, when choosing, you should take into account such moments as the size of the kitchen and the number of people in the family. It depends on whether the mixer with a small capacity or a small bowl will suit you, whether it will be convenient for you to work with it and store it.
