Consumer Voice - - Comparative Test -

The do­mes­tic elec­tric food juicer/mixer/grinder has be­come an in­te­gral fix­ture in the typ­i­cal mod­ern kitchen. Gen­er­ally func­tional as liq­uidiz­ers, grinders and juicers, this para­pher­na­lia comes in handy for grind­ing/pul­ver­iz­ing/pow­der­ing dry food­stuffs ei­ther raw or roasted (ce­re­als, grains, masalas, cof­fee seeds, etc.), for mix­ing liq­uids and for con­vert­ing food— with or with­out the pres­ence of wa­ter (or veg­etable oils)—into forms of slurry or pulps. It is also used for ex­tract­ing juice from fruits or veg­eta­bles. Ba­si­cally, whether the pur­pose is to whip up a chunky chut­ney or blend a cool lassi, the JMG is the thing to go to. Here, the

team checks out var­i­ous brands of food juicers/mix­ers/grinders to as­sess how equal they are to var­i­ous op­er­a­tional, ef­fi­ciency and safety pa­ram­e­ters.

The com­par­a­tive test­ing car­ried out in an NABL-ac­cred­ited lab­o­ra­tory was mainly based on In­dian Stan­dard IS 4250: 1980, cov­er­ing rated in­put not ex­ceed­ing 600 watts. Rel­e­vant pro­vi­sions of IS: 302-1: 2008 were also re­ferred to. While elec­tric food juicers/mix­ers/grinders are man­u­fac­tured in both the or­ga­nized and un­or­ga­nized sec­tors, we fo­cussed on the for­mer for the com­par­a­tive test­ing.
