Cant say enough good things about bamix brand immersion blenders. Super powerful and versatile, they deliver the chefs touch.
I recently received the bamix pro-2 g200 mixer, so i’m just getting used to it. It is quite powerful, but at the same time it’s also more complicated to clean than my old cheap mixer, because it has detachable parts. If you only need to mix a pint or so of liquid, then you should settle for a cheap mixer from sears. If you want to mix big pots of soup every day, then bamix is probably worth the investment.
Well made product and delivery was faster than expected.

“Superior and Flexible Usage
, Bamix fits into a regular quart jar — Yay!!
, QUICK, CLEAN, and EASY!! THIS *IS* the blender you’re looking for
I received this and it’s a very nice mixer. It was missing the s blade (slicing) attachment, however. Is there any way that you could ship this to me?.
I have never had an immersion blender that is so effective. It delivered fully emulsified dressings and marinades in moments and you can see the design working to pull the ingredients in versus having to constantly move the blender around to get everything mixed.
It is my second bamix as back up if the first one will die. Cons: gets hot if you use it continiously for more than 5 minutes.
I read a lot of reviews before i chose what kind of bamix to purchase. I know several people who have a bamix, and have loved it. So for me it was not a question of what brand. However, i want to comment on a couple negative reviews. Someone wrote that they wish the bamix had a bigger bell like the brevelle does — wrong. The bell just fits through a mayonaise jar with a regular-sized lid, which is very important if you use your bamix to make mayo in a quart jar, which i do. A larger size bell and you would not ever be able to use it in a regular quart jar. The company had this one pegged exatlyanother review blog really put down the bamix because the attachments aren’t all they are advertised for — i agree. Just use the bamix for what it is excellent at doing and you will be very pleased with the quality of this machinealso, i am very pleased that i chose to get a pro 2.
The company we bought it from is easy to work with.
Love it to cook, feels powerful.
This is an amazing kitchen tool. It makes whipped ‘cream’ out of skim milk.
Mixing soup in a huge pan is no problem, as the mixer is high (you can put it about 11 inch in the liquid) and powerful enough. But you can also whip small quantities (i. 4 cups of cream in a small container) or whip skimmed milk (i first couldn’t believe this). You can detach the knives/blades for cleaning, so it’s really easy. It’s not cheap, but it’s great.
No plastic parts to wear out is the most important feature to me.
I did the product testing for you. I tried three other less expensive stick (or immersion) blenders. And by the time i’d managed to make those frozen pieces of fruit and the vast quantities of liquid into something even remotely like a smoothie, i’d practically stopped wanting anything at all to eat or drink. Bamix is exactly what you expect it to be: a quick, clean, easy way to make a smoothie. I bought the stainless steel cups and then i just add frozen fruit and juice to cover and blend. I have a deliciously cold, well blended smoothie in a blink of an eye. I use a bottle brush to clean the active end, rinse and let air dry. Now making a smoothie is almost as easy as just thinking about wanting one.
I had a ninja immersion blender and loved it. Sadly it died and they no longer make them. I tried the cuisinart and breville and neither had the power of ninja. So i tried bamix and wow i love it. It makes quick work of ice in smoothies and frozen berries are a breeze. I purchased it from another vendor, only because i had a large insensitive credit there. I am very happy and would purchase it again. I have been using mine now for a year.
The concept is simple, put a powerful, high rpm yet compact motor in the palm of your hand, attach to it a blade and you get a nice little tool to mash and crash right in the piping hot pot. Since then the concept is the same but various attachments have been invented to allow the same motor to do more things. So what make an immersion blender perform better than the rest???. Well, many companies quote this or that amount of watts, bamix/esge/zauberstab/unold are quoting rpm’s but somewhat low watts, what really matters?.How can we compare?well, the correct… answer it’s a bit of both. The rpm times the circumference of the blades would give us the vertical speed of the blades. The higher the vertical speed of the blades, the “better” the crushing capability of the blender will be. In the bamix range the non pro units go from 10,000 to about 17,000 rpm. The pro units go from 12,000 rpm for the low speed of the gastro 200 all the way up to 22,000 for the more powerful gastro 350. How do we compare the braun and bosch for instance to the bamix?.
Would have wished it would blend even better than it does. Easy to hand clean rod and head and take off blade for further cleaning. If it was still possible we’d return it and invest in a table top stationary type of blender. We mostly use it for smoothies and it does have a hard time grinding up too tough kale – it can’t get the pieces small enough. No blades have sharp edges and that surprised us when comparing with older blenders, but also explains why the kale never gets really blended. To sum up: not great for tough greens like kale – great for soups or blending only berries and bananas – great for whisking and incorporating bubbles. Rod is fixed so requires hand wash.
Our original bamix my parents purchased was in 1975 and lasted for over 35years. The only reason we had to replace it was, that it fell a few times too many to the floor. We purchased this 200 watt bamix for my parents and they love it. They said its so much stronger than the old one and a little taller. It now takes half the time due to the power. It makes fantastic smoothies – which the old one didn’t do so well. I purchased my own bamix 1991 –25 years ago – it did come with all 4 blades, the mill, a blending container and a counter stand and that’s where its standing. Since the bamix was purchased, its being used almost daily for our fruit/veggie smoothie. Using the bamix regularly – i make our own tomato and pizza sauce; pureed soup; mashed potatoes; in the summer jams; frozen drinks; homemade baby food for years; desserts; mayo and our famous cesar salad dressing. When we moved in 2003 the bamix was not used for approx.
Great mixer but not for whites.
One of my favorite tools in the kitchen. I love the homemade mayonnaise ready in seconds with healthy ingredients.
I have one that is 20 to 25 years old and running great. I bought this one as a gift for my son.
At first i was worried that this immersion blender was overkill in terms of rpms and length and weight, but it turns out it’s the same length of our cheaper cuisinart. The three attachments that come with the kit are great as compared to the single non-removable blade on the cuisinart my wife purchased several years ago ($39). My first batch of mayonnaise was perfect and much firmer and more fluffy; so simple it’s a crime. I tried the whipping attachment for whipped cream and had little luck the first go around as i used a small glass bowl. Then, i used the small bamix beaker for the whipped cream and, viola. Amazingly short time to whip. I also had a chance to use the multi-purpose blade to mix up sweet potatoes and orange sections and it did a significantly better job than the cuisinart – no large undetected chunks. I can’t wait to use this on other soups we make. I will say that the small attachments are eye candy for our 2-yr old and we lost the whisk attachment in less than a week.
The bamix g200 is one of many series of high quality immersion blenders. This one is replacing my wife’s single-speed version of some 22 years. The old one now occasionally squeals. The g200 has a longer shaft, but the stand was replaced with a wall-mounted holder, so you can’t just place the stand on the counter top. The new unit has two speeds, which is better than the old one, but the former on-off rocker switch was replaced with two silicone-covered momentary switches. As a safety feature, you now have to continuously hold down one of the switches during use. This may add safety, but is a royal pain in the finger when you are mixing something for 5 minutes.
Appears to have simple high quality components that are easy to clean and assemble. Works exactly as advertised.
I use this for bulletproof coffee. I has a special blade for liquids. No worries about you blender falling apart due to sudden high temperatures. Lots of power for every use. Good pulsing action at both speeds. Solid and highly recommended.
