Post a Comment. Thursday, October 17, Recipe: Hummus with the Bamix. The Bamix is a Swiss consumer kitchen tool, a powerful immersion blender advertised most famously, by Gordon Ramsey. The chief advantages of the Bamix are that it has a much higher speed than most immersion blenders, it has several different head attachments and can be used directly into a hot stockpot, over the stove. It is advertised as being able to grind sugar, cereal, spices, crush ice, chop ginger, raw, cooked or frozen fruit and rasp and slice vegetables, legumes or cheese.

If you get the processor, make sure you also get the powder disk to use within the processor to pulverise! It magically turns things into powder! For instance — the jug, or smaller beakers, and a stand to hang it on. The latest Bamix models are essentially packages targeted at specific uses like BBQ, Baking, Smoothie making, baby food making and more. So the more recent accessories are aprons, beakers, baby food jar etc.
These are all detailed at the bottom of this page. Each model comes with a different combination of attachments and accessories. Only the Superbox and Baking sets have the full set. So its nice to be able to easily add accessories for future birthday gifts or stocking fillers! Superbox set in Red Bamix attachments and accessories are small and light. So they make great gifts to give, or receive. Are you in a hurry to make mayonnaise in 5 secs? One stainless steel malt cup or this set of 6 malt cups which is much better value.
The big beaker is a 1 Litre graduated jug, so if you want to pour this is the best. So any , and as many as you can have are good because you need tall narrow beakers to get that vortex going well. Well all sorts really! Great price too. Click over and get it whilst there is still stock! It seems that everything Bamix says it can do, it does quietly, quickly, evenly, and expertly! The Bamix models come with different accessories or attachments. The accessories and attachments are made to the same high standard as the main Bamix blenders.
Check out our post on how to compare and decipher the Bamix hand blender model names. We review all the accessories and attachments that they include, and the main buying criteria to help you choose the best one for you. Click over to see our thinking, and which one we bought as a result! The Bamix feels great to handle! Whipping up egg whites fast for meringues is one of its most popular tricks! Faster than when I did it in front of Paul , and a camera!
In the beginning, we used to get a bit bamboozled with all the blade names and what they meant. What was the difference between them, and what do they all do? More importantly, we wanted to know what food can we make with each blade.
After a bit of research here is our guide on how to decipher the terms. It includes all the techniques you can apply with each blade, and also the resulting food it will help you create.
We also tell you what letter Bamix give it e. A blade and what they look like by the way because some sales sites online mix the names up.
The Multi Purpose Blade Amazon is great for pureeing soups and sauces , and ideal for baby food, chops and blends fruit and vegetables for juices, shakes and smoothies. So you can easily make shortcrust pastry, brioche, and bread! You can also make amazing ice cream and flavoured butters, and its hard crushing action works wonders on ice or nuts. Think of it as ideal for mixtures that need a thick consistency like light batters.
Fabulous for emulsifying mayonnaise, making pancakes, crepes, waffles and omelettes. Quick note: sometimes in Europe, even in a Bamix office! So, just always look at the pictures as well as words. Also known as the aerator blade or the A blade. Be careful as some sites also mistakenly call the Beater blade the B blade! Basically, it tilts a little which allows it to get air into the mixture, hence the name aerator.
Think of using it for anything that needs beating with a light touch. So you can now see why the Beater Blade Amazon is also called a foamer, or a creamer, a sauce maker. How about meringues, sauces, soups, thick milk shakes and smoothies, whipped desserts, light sponge cakes, sabayons, milk foams, bernaise sauce, tiramisu, Chantilly cream, and hollandaise sauce.
We could go on! Note: A little heads up on this little blade. Basically it minces meats and creates pastes. Its good for fibrous ingredients so think of using this tool when you want to make a smoothie with difficult fruit and vegetables like rhubarb, leeks and asparagus.
Do bear in mind though that it is not meant to be used to crush ice. The multi-purpose blade does that. You do have to careful to line the shaft and the blade end up very well to get them to connect properly.
It can also happen that the blade becomes loose. Ours did after a few years of constant use. It happened to our multipurpose C blade. We just tightened it a little with pliers.
We contacted Bamix about it too and they said that was exactly what to do, but that you can also send it back to Bamix or one of their worldwide partners to fix too. The Grinder a. If you do end up with a dry grinder only, its not the end of the world as, although it is meant for dry ingredients only, most people say you can also use it to chop herbs leaves that you have removed surface water from for example or veggies again, dry surface.
Surprisingly stable it seems. Not very big at all and very like a coffee or spice grinder or miniprocessor size. Also known as the Wet and Dry grinding mill or the Processor on Amazon. It has 5 elements: the lid, the base, the bowl, the stainless steel shaft and the blade.
It is designed to grind both wet and dry ingredients. So, like the dry grinder, it is brilliant at grinding dry spices like vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamom etc.
It equally grinds nuts, grains, chocolate, coffee beans, and even ice. However it also grinds herbs, onions and tomatoes and much more. It can also make your pates, nut butters, or just simple take the tears out of onion chopping! It can be used to grind ice, hard or soft cheese, or for making crumbs out of dried bread, fish or mushroom, or for grinding herbs and citrus peels. You will need the extra pulveriser powder disk piece below to do the sugar and salt to a very fine consistency.
What we love is that it fits neatly on the back of the stand — being just 12 x 12 x 9 cm. So a nice small size to hold in your one hand, whilst you have the blender in the other hand. That way you get nice even grinding. A helpful foodie mentioned it takes a large slice of bread torn into bits to make breadcrumbs, a large handful of herbs, about 4 or 5 oz sugar ground down to caster sugar, or a handful of nuts to be chopped. We have so much to write on the processor.
We found that it does need enough moisture to form a paste and often this is more moisture water will do than the recipe calls for. No need for you to buy those tubes of garlic paste then! By the way, apparently any excess water goes away when you start cooking with the paste in hot oil. For sugar, start raw and do a fast refine yourself to castor sugar, and then, with the powder disk inserted, go further to icing sugar…in seconds. We use that in place of breadcrumbs or just to thicken things!
This attachment is compatible with all Bamix models and we think this handy little attachment to the Bamix will save you time, money and effort! The Powder Disk see it here on Amazon and be amazed! The Powder Disc is made of a transparent polycarbonate plastic, which is durable, shatterproof and dishwasher safe.
Add the SliceSy and you get the food processing unit that we would use most for little jobs like slicing and grating. Many reviewers talk about having arthritic hands though, so the Bamix is a godsend for that. The Bamix SliceSy click through to see lots of variations on Amazon usually has a large main S blade for larger amounts of chopping or kneading! The full or complete Bamix SliceSy set as its known, has 5 extra accessories….
So you can process vegetables, fruits and cheese to make simple easy salads. It can even slice olives, nut and grapes to top them off nicely. You can make a nice tartar or burgers from lean meat or fish, and short pastry or cake dough.
Washing the top part of the Slicesy seems to be a sore point though as this is one accessory that cannot be completely submerged in water. The rest can go in the dishwasher! The attachments are also sharper than the wand blades so be careful. The basic Bamix SliceSy set comes with just two blades — the coarse slice and coarse grater, so this a good set to add to it. Three extra blades in durable stainless steel for the Bamix SliceSy.

Apple crumble cake
It produces the Bamix which was invented by Roger Perrinjaquet a Swiss engineer. The company name results from the names Gschwend and Spingler, the founders of the original company, founded in Germany during the Fifties. Bamix is distributed in more than 40 countries with mainly exclusive distributors. His wish was to work with this appliance directly in pans on the stove. Bamix, the name of this handheld blender is composed of the words battre and mixer beat and mix. Without having investors, Perrinjaquet sold the patents to ESGE Ltd, which was producing initially bicycle racks, electrical kitchen knives, watches and small electrical motors.
The Swiss engineer Roger Perrinjaquet invents an entirely new type of kitchen appliance. The application describes the world's first stick or wand mixer. Perrinjaquet sells the patent rights to ESGE who produce the first wand mixers towards the end of this year. Bodart BV is specialized in selling kitchen appliances at consumer fairs they do 60 of these fairs in the Netherlands. Not only do they sell very well but they also come to realise that the most effective way to convince potential customers of the usefulness of this small but expensive appliance is "live demonstration"!
