Product review / Feedback of Sumeet Appliances, Sumeet Mixer Grinder, Sumeet Grinderman, customer care no. for Sumeet mixer grinder

Ever since I have bought a Sumeet Grinderman I was really happy to have everything going smooth in the kitchen. This purchase was influenced with the strong belief of my mother that remained intact for years. She always said nothing can beat Sumeet mixer grinder in the market when it comes to tough grindings like dry masala powders and Dosa / Idli batters at home. Then my Sister in law who was again gifted a Sumeet mixer at the time of her marriage supported my mothers opinion quite strongly and these reviews eventually made me replace my old Bajaj mixer grinder to a new SUMEET Grinderman.


Now i am close to complete one year using this machine I am willing to share my experiences with all of you who are either planning to purchase a Sumeet Grinderman which is no doubt an excellent product and also who are struggling with a damaged one and looking for the customer care services which are extremely pathetic. I bought this machine late in July 2015 and encountered with the very first problem in January 2016 which is within the one year warranty period.

Lets talk about the POSITIVE ASPECTS OF THIS PRODUCT first

1- Sumeet Grinderman is a 750 watt machine which comes with three jars. One for dry grinding another for wet grinding and the small one to prepare the chutnies etc., but good enough to grind almost anything in small quantity.

2- All three jars are thick plated and heavy in quality also are the lids and blades (Except the stirrer attached to the small jar) unlike many other machines which look fancy but the quality is really not that good. My previews one's jars got cracks on the edges. 

3- Also comes along with four interchangeable blades for dry grinding, wet grinding, flour kneading, meat mincing, whipping, ice crushing etc.

4- Let me assure you with my own experience that this machine is powerful enough to crush raw spices like coriander, dry challis, black pepper and garam masala etc to make a find powder. A real fine powder.

I have used almost all the attachment except the needing one because I find my food-processor more easy to wash for the kneading mess.

DRAWBACKS OF THIS PRODUCT- 

1- The look and feel of this product is really very basic. If you compare them with the fancy designs of other products available in the market it looks very old fashioned.


2- It creates a lot of noise because of the heavy duty motor i guess, which is disturbing to some extent.

3- The dome shaped lid attached to the chutney jar has a  feature of a stirrer at the top in order to continuously mix the content inside the jar while the mixer is working. I found this  feature just good for nothing and really not that helpful and required for such a small jar. The main problem is the plastic which is this stirrer is made of, is really low quality. Since we are a small family this is the jar which is mostly used and after using it for a while I noticed the stirrer's stick badly damaged.Plastic threads coming out because of the pressure built inside the jar while in use.
I realized this quite lately when I was grinding some black pepper and while sieving the powder I found these tiny plastic threads mixed with the powder. I have immediately stopped using this jar and carefully removed the stirrer from inside. It is better to use it without a stirrer then putting your health on stake.




4- The sealing rubber ring of the chutney jar's lid of somehow difficult to remove for cleaning and then to be placed again. The structure of the jar's lid is really complicated for cleaning and putting the lid back on place.

Now coming to the Customer Care Support of Sumeet Appliances. 

The most pathetic and hopeless after sales service arrangements I have encountered recently. I am based out of Delhi and it took more then two months to just get a small part repaired after series of conversations after the top people of the company as the ECO deals himself for each complaint and have no after sales team / customer care call center to respond. 

Read this specific post to get the contact numbers to approach if your Sumeet Mixer grinder / grinderman is not working.

whole wheat (atta) Cookies without butter & eggs (atta biscuits with oil)

Dear All,

Life is just so delicious with freshly baked cookies.. isn't it. In my endeavors of  baking most health friendly cookies for my family so far, I have finally succeeded with making whole wheat flour cookies (Atta biscuits) with out using butter, shortening or eggs. Adding more to the nutrition part they are packed with Chokar (wheat bran) to increase the fiber content. These biscuits are really crunchy and mouth melting and hence can be eaten well with evening tea or in the breakfast.  


Well.... I won't mind sharing my recipe with you as long as you promise to give it a try and come back with your valuable comments and experiences.  :)

Okei... so all you need is.... 

1/2 cup of whole wheat flour (my measuring cup is 75 gm)
1/2 cup of wheat bran
3 Table spoon of sugar (powdered in your mixer)
4-5 cardamom (Elayachi) (Seeds crushed and powdered)
1 tea spoon baking powder
little less than 1/2 Cup Vegetable Oil (any oil would work. I used rice bran oil) need to be kept in freezer to become chilled.
1/2 cup of Milk - need to be kept in freezer to become chilled.
A few drops of vanilla / Pineapple essence mixed into the milk

Mix everything together - wheat flour + wheat bran + sugar + baking powder + cardamom powder and mix them really well. Add the vanilla / Pineapple essence to the milk. Now gently add the oil in the flour and mix it really well till the point you feel the flour has absorbed the oil completely and small lumps / laddo type shapes can be formed. Now start adding milk little by little to make a gentle dough (not too loose but firm) I used around 2 tea spoon milk for this quantity of mixture to make a final dough. Since we are not using butter, the mixture will not be very combining and it may not be very easy to form a solid dough so all you need to do is  -  just take all the mixture put together and press it to give it a cylindrical shape. 

Now carefully wrap it in a cling film ( or any thick poly sheet will work) and keep it in freezer for 15-20 minutes). As you put the dough in the freezer, preheat the oven for 180 C. After 15-20 minutes the dough is chilled and firm. Take it out from the sheet / cling film and cut 1/2 " slices of the dough. Place them carefully on a greased tray and bake for 15- 18 minutes till the biscuits are golden brown in color. (you need to check in every 3 minuted after 10 minutes of initial continuous baking as temperature works different in different ovens. Carefully take them out and place on another tray for cooling. 

You can have multiple round of baking as per your need. In this quantity you will have 10-12 medium sized cookies. 



Enjoy the crunch and give your family a new taste of freshly baked healthy cookies. 

Will be up with lot more on my balcony gardening preparations for winters and kitchen endeavors. Keep visiting and enjoying with me.. till then stay happy and blessed..
