From the day My Mixer stopped working I tried many models available in the US only to be returned (NOT Satisfied). Then thought to go ONLY for Indian Mixer.So SEARched the net high and low for an Indian Mixer during this time I came across one sensible Lady's blog where she mentioned ' Oster 16 Speed blender'+ 'Coffee Grinder' would be a perfect replace for any Indian Mixer.
So went to store to buy the two, but to my Luck the Store was out of Stock on 16 speed so brought home 'OSTERIZER 14 Speed' + 'Cuisinart Coffee Grinder' and was Pleasantly Surprised by they fine Grinding.
Sorry you had to read all this, but I had to write it all 'cos there are many Indians in the US who might have faced such a problem at least once and there are many more Who may Face it, So all this to save them from the Pain I went through.
This is a very cheap product. Any time is was doing my soup, it was spreading everywhere and was a mess in my kitchen. I now have a Blentec and it is a real revolution.
