Iyer Wet Mixer Grinder – Knead & Grind With Perfection

This made in India wet grinder comes with a heavy duty motor, thick stone blades for fine grinding and can grind lentils, grains, coconut, for Idli, dosa, chutney, paste, puran, etc.

The name ‘Iyer Wet Mixer Grinder’ quickly portrays the picture of a typical South Indian restaurant. A partially open kitchen. A guy constantly churning out the Idli or Dosa batter with a great dedication, which would later become a ‘steamy affair’ and rest in your plate.

Iyer Wet Grinder

This wet grinder helped my mom run a business

In early years of a decade before the last one, my mom thought of starting a household business of ready made tiffins (lunch boxes) for the students, paying guests living around or place. Extremely happy with the taste, one day someone asked her if she could provide few hundred Idlis for a get-together. My mom delivered the soft and fluffy Idlis, with due diligence.

Later on she kept on getting more orders, and that’s where she started looking for a household wet grinder that could save her time spent for getting batter from a local shop. That’s when she purchased the Iyer Magic Wet Grinder – a table top wet grinder.

Iyer Wet Mixer Grinder

The brand Iyer was pretty new in the town then. Established in 1990, they operate from Pune, and serve the locality pan Maharashtra and surroundings. A true made in India brand like Iyer scale lengths and breadths, leaves a satisfying impression on us.

After Sales Service

Delivery time is 1 item per day, if I quote from their website.

Talking about installation and repairs, when we bought this grinder 12 years ago, the owner himself had visited us for the installation. Personally, since then we hardly dialed Iyer for any major issue, except on one instance where motor was damaged due to severe voltage fluctuation. Even then, our issue was quickly resolved.

Price

Their own website claims the price to be in range of Rs 6000 – rs 10000.

If you explore other options such as Preethi Wet Grinder, or the one from Panasonic you will find the former cheaper than the later. But that could be due to variations in size and motor capacity, and other components.

Verdict

Iyer’s grinder is actually a deserving option, when it comes to the quality, and their name in the mixer grinder segment. If you are looking out for a decent made in India product in the wide pool of imported electronics that we are already into, Iyer’s this mixer grinder does stand out.
