Bamix Immersion Hand Blender is perhaps the undisputed leader among Immersion Hand Blenders. This is a dream blender for those who love to cook and the level of knowledge and preparation does not really matter. No wonder that the best chefs often give preference to Bamix blender while creating their food masterpieces.
Despite the modern design and innovative functionality, you can see that the models themselves have not changed much over the last sixty years. In 1950 the Swiss Roger Perrinjaquet invented an appliance that could work directly in pans on the stove. Since then, Bamix blender remains the first example of manual food processors in the world combining high power and compact size. Today bamix® offers you modernized models of legendary technology, made in a modern style and equipped with additional accessories.
Bamix Immersion Hand Blender is famous for its superior quality. Production of parts, components and assembly of the finished product are 100% carried out in Switzerland. The engine – the heart of any blender – is assembled and passes several stages of testing directly at the plant in Mettlen in Switzerland. A rotor of the motor, after winding the wire and gluing it together, undergoes balancing in approximately the same way as when balancing the wheels of a car. As a result, the blender works very quietly, does not vibrate and does not beat in hands at high rotor speeds. Each bamix® motor passes the final 10-minute continuous operation test, during which the engine behavior is carefully tested in accordance with the standards. The bamix® motor is designed for continuous use (more than 5 minutes) and can handle overloads.
The motor power of the majority of the Bamix Immersion Hand blenders (except for a few models) does not go beyond 200 Watt. However, the wattage says nothing about the strength of the motor, but gives rather an impression of the energy consumption. bamix® does not get its power from the wattage as is often thought in other immersion hand blenders, but from the number of revolutions per minute. The most basic bamix® model, the Mono M140, for example, already makes 10,000 revolutions per minute and is therefore much more powerful than, for example, 600 to 750 watt hand blenders of other manufactures. bamix® does not use a transmission (removable rod), thus the motor transfers 100% of its power to the blending nozzle. This makes the product stronger and simply does not require that wattage. Another advantage that you will notice, is in your wallet because the energy meter taps less and you have the option of turning on multiple appliances in your kitchen at the same time … so no overloading of the plugs.
The blender handle is made of nylon. It is twice as expensive as polypropylene and other cheap plastics used by most manufacturers of similar products, however more durable and you have a quality that will last for many years. Nylon has a high resistance to shock and destruction and has an incredible combination of properties: high strength, heat resistance, elasticity and resistance to many chemicals. The blender handle is fully sealed to keep the motor free from exposure to the moisture. By the way, the blender is easy to hold in hand, because in addition to the special geometry of the handle itself, the body has a corrugated surface.
Bamix Glass Jar for products processing is made from Tritan, a material that is impact-resistant, unbreakable and heat-resistant up to 200 degrees C. You can use it in the freezer and microwave. It is non-toxic and dishwasher safe. Tritan is widely used in higher quality products plastic material owing to its unique combination of properties, which are not found in any other single material including metal, glass or any other plastic. Such properties include impact-resistant (can be used safely without breaking or cracking), strong (extended service life, thus reducing waste flow) and is exceptionally resistant to the dishwasher – the material can be washed almost without any material deterioration. Tritan is much lighter than glass – making it easier to handle, without the fear of breaking the material and is BPA-free making it suitable for baby food preparation.
You start to feel Swiss affiliation from the first second you hold the packed product in your hands. The packaging of every model has its own unique style, that speaks about application even without opening the box.
The bamix® box utters only one massage – inside is a professional kitchen appliance that you will love. The company offers both completely home models and professional solutions for large industries.
The first thing that catches your eye when you open the package – the blender has an integral design. The leg and the control unit are one, and only the nozzles can be removed and replaced with others. An unusual solution gives several advantages at once:
- all mechanical parts are docked once at the factory and that’s all, which means that the probability of breakage and abrasion of parts due to improper connection of the blender’s leg to the main unit decreases significantly;
- the blender can be immersed in the mass right up to the level of the body, since liquids will not be able to get inside and damage the motor;
- a cord is quite long, 190 cm, and give you freedom to move and be more independent from the location of outlets in the kitchen or in the workshop.
Bamix Immersion Hand blender comes with different accessories. The higher the price the more accessories will come together with the blender. If your model does not have them all, but you would like to have them, you can always purchase accessories separately.
Most models come with the following accessories.
