Update Oct/2012
I recently bought a Kill-a-Watt power meter and connected this Mixier and it is only using 300W power and not 750 Watts as advertised. I always have wondered why a 750 watts mixer grinder is not very powerful and now I know the reason. Consumer's are misinformed by either the marketer or the manufacturer.

PROS:
1) The cheapest Indian Mixer grinder I found in Amazon (I bought it for $80).
2) It has three jars which is useful for most of Indian family needs.
3) The seller delivered the product on time and as promised.

Cons:
1) This Mixer trips a lot (even with a small amount of load), which is a not good thing. However there is a trip switch in the bottom which we can use to temporarily enable it again.
2) The product as it delivered to our home appeared as if it is manufactured at least 2-3 years ago. It appeared old (but not used) and the washers in the jars smelled like old ones.
3) The Mixer advertises as 750 watts and I thought it will be powerful than 550 watts Preethi mixer, but it is not that powerful.

I am really surprised this thing got good reviews.
The blades of both of my Jars are stuck after one time use. They don't move no matter what I do... Reason the grinding particles are getting stuck in the thing that spins the blade. Once they dry up there is no where to move.

Lost $100 bucks on this thing.

It trips most of the time saying overload.. I am this close to throwing it out. Only thing stopping me are the $ 100 I spent.

I am able to use only 1 jar that too with lot of pouring hot water , trying to check on the blades if they can move before I start grinding... The blades don't move smoothly after 30 min of this exercise. Now I put it on the mixie turn it on with water only before the blades become free... The worst thing is no matter how much you clean before and after the blades always become hard to move.

My review in one sentence.... CRAPPIEST Mixer grinder ever

I bought this in desperation to buy a mixer grinder that meets the functions typical Indians need. In India, we wouldn't even give it a second look.

Cheap road side plastic with no standards... the parts look as if they are moulded by hand.

The plug doesn't fit standard american plug points.. I had to buy an adapter.

The steel jars are good, but the fitting of blades and it's plastic parts make it functionally unreliable.

It stopped working after two and half months.

It was used mainly to make chutneys.. grind soaked urad dal and rice for dosas. Something typically done almost 2 times in a week in India... and I wonder, how those we use in India last for years in India.. I am using Prestige since 7 years now... it works without glitch.

This is identical to mixers we use in India so does all the heavy grinding that blenders cannot. Happy with purchase.

Hi,

I was looking for a good mixer grinder in the budget of 100$. I found this product and ordered it from Amazon. This product is excellent and is more than efficient for house hold needs. We use it for all kind of indain chutneys, for Dosa batters and lot of other stuff. It works like a charm.
GO FOR IT IF YOU LOOKING FOR A EFFICIENT PRODUCT WITHIN BUDGET

Please dont buy this. I had ordered this product once before but received a stained one so returned.Then I thought it might be by mistake so reordered but received like used one again. Being tired from returning circus, I retained it and rarely used it.However, in 45 days, it tripped off in just 10 seconds of grinding. I re-tried by resetting knob and it worked but would not run more than 10 seconds in a go, and on one occasion, there was a spark inside near motor. That was its last breath. Not working since then. The product is clearly not made for US Voltage regulations. There is just a 110V sticker on bottom hiding 220V.

P.S.: I was grinding 50-70 grams of Urad Dal. Couldn't wash and grind less than that!

Okay, now that I have declared it, Here are the pluses first, there aren't many:
1. The motor housing is decent, not Kitchenaid quality but not bad either. Not sure why they wanted all those graphics on it.
2. The motor did not start smoking as someone else experienced.
3. It does a decent job of making chutney pastes, my primary reason for getting this.

Now to the Negatives... Get a pillow, you will need to read this leisurely:

1. The machine reeks cheapness. For something made in Mumbai, I would expect some semblance of a class. Alas, the lovely city has lost its charm. The box itself is a cheap imitation of Sumeet, the mother of all indian mixers, its thin, cheap corrugated box with the print done by your out of job neighborhood lad whose mom begged you to give him your business.
2. I opened the jars hoping to see something better. Well, its a neighboorhood business in Goregaon apparently. The Stainless steel quality reminds me of those cheap badly finished steel bowls that folks used to give out during fairs and large functions, aka Dollar store quality. The jar sizes are small.
3. The blades are made by the same steel folks. No polished steel. When I tried to remove the blade, the whole assembly came apart. I had to get a plier to loosen the blade from the shaft. In the process i did not check how many fiber washers were inside versus on the outside. Needless to say, I put more inside than outside and the blade was not rotating smoothly. It started smoking when I put it on the mixie. I had to re-do the whole thing.
4. The rubber sealer between the lid and the bowl is the kicker. Recollect smell of Hawaii chappals. Now think of really cheap Hawaii chappals. Yes, same material, same smell. This is supposed to be food grade PVC or similar, not made by out of work shoe workers.
5. The quality of the Lid is not exactly rocking either. Again, a neighboorhood effort for sure. You can see that your beach toys that you get for you kids have a better plastic.
6. The icing on the cake is that the sticker on the rotating switch that indicates which speed you are at was put wrongly.
7. The motor is a re-adjustment of the 220-240V 750W stepped down for use on 110V. So I am not expecting 750W as someone mentioned earlier. I concur with that person that the wattage will probably be way less. There are no safety features other than the trip switch. If you put the jar without the lid and turn things on, well, it works like a 20$ Oster/Hamilton Beach/B&D.
8. The electrical cord is of suspect quality. Something that you get at that illegal electrical shop under a tree in a remote village (Honestly, I have lived in such places...)

For $100 I cannot complain (except to Squaretrade if it goes belly up) too much but if you are expecting something as an investment, go away. My experience with Sumeet is not exactly rocking, but my last one lasted 9 years. The jar lid could have been designed better, but at least there were aftermarket parts that worked great. The mixie was reliable.
For a company that claims ISO 9002 Certification, I wish someone came up with a quality standard, not a manufacturing process standard.
