Bosch TrueMixx Pro Mixer Grinder Review

With a 1000 watt motor, Bosch TrueMixx Pro is one of the most powerful mixer grinders available in the market. And it is quite highly rated by users too. In this review, we discuss its performance, ease of use, safety, durability and other aspects to help you make an informed decision.

Summary

The Bosch Pro Mixer Grinder has a fair grinding performance for all types of chores you come across in a regular kitchen. With a pure copper motor, it grinds well provided you fill in a sufficient quantity of ingredients.

Further, it is aesthetically appealing and the built quality is good. It is one of the few options that offer hands-free grinding operations as all the jars have lid locks. With a tall strainer, its juicer jar is a close second to Preethi Zodiac in terms of extraction efficiency.

But, it is a bit gimmicky. The pounding blade results in coarse grinding. Honestly, we weren’t able to find much of a difference between grinding with the regular blade and pounding blade in terms of flavour or fragrance.

Similarly, the flow breaker too didn’t offer anything dramatic in terms of performance. Other mixer grinders without such a feature provided similar results. If at all anything, food could get stuck on top of the flow breaker and you have one more thing to clean. So, these features did not give any substantially different results.

Also, it makes a really annoying sound and tends to vibrate a bit.

PROS:

  • Fair grinding efficiency for medium to full load.

  • All jars lids have an opening at the top to feed in water and ingredients while grinding.

CONS:

  • It is a bit difficult to scrape off food from the lid.
  • Very noisy
  • Comparatively difficult to clean

How We Test?

Following our standard testing procedure, we use the mixer grinder for about 10 days in a regular Indian kitchen to understand how it performs in a real life environment. Following this, we grind predetermined quantity of various ingredients to have a comparative analysis of the grinding efficiency of each model.

Jars

The mixer grinder comes with 4 jars. They are-

  • 400 ml chutney jar
  • 1-litre medium size jar
  • 1.5-litre wet grinding jar
  • 1.5-litre blender/juicer jar

Except for the juicer jar, all others are made of high-quality stainless steel with polycarbonate lids. The handles are all strongly attached and they are ergonomically designed with finger grips that make it quite easy to handle.

The lids are made of polycarbonate with an opening at the top. The jars have a lot of grooves and indentations which makes it a bit difficult to scrape off dry ingredients. Cleaning them is also a bit difficult.

The juicer jar is made of polycarbonate with a plastic lid that locks in place. What we liked is that it has got a tall strainer like the ones you get with Sujata Multimixx. Preethi on the other hand have really short strainers which aren’t that efficient. Out of the options we tested, Bosch’s juicer jar design is a close second to Preethi Zodiac which comes with a pusher and extractor blade.

Housing/Base

The housing base of Bosch Truemixx is compact and takes less footprint on your countertop. But, it is pretty tall. In fact, if you mount the wet grinding jar on the base, it measures around 50 cm in height. So, if you have a low lying kitchen cabinet, you may have difficulty pouring in ingredients from the lid opening while operating it.

The unit has 3-speed settings and pulse function which can be controlled using the knob. Unfortunately, it doesn’t have a power-on indicator.

As with other mixer grinders, it has vacuum suction feet and an overload protection switch too.

Performance

The Bosch Truemixx with 1000 watt power has a fair grinding efficiency. It can grind a medium to full load pretty quickly and into a fine consistency.  At the minimum speed setting, the blades have an RPM of 21,000 and at the maximum speed, it has an RPM of 23,500 cycles.

The pounding blade grinds the spices to a coarse consistency, while the regular blades grind them to a very fine consistency. But, in terms of flavour and fragrance, there is hardly any difference between the two. In fact, when we ground garam masala with the pounding blade, there were a lot of coarse strands from cardamom which we did not like. But, with the regular blade, it was ground to a fine consistency which was quite favourable.

On the left, garam masala ground using the pounding blade. On the right, garam masala ground using the regular blade.

From our observation, we found that Bosch Truemixx wasn’t very efficient when grinding a very small quantity in the chutney jar.

Among the models tested, Bosch Truemixx had the maximum coarse residue after grinding and sieving 30 gm turmeric.

When we ground 30 gm turmeric and 20 gm ginger-garlic separately, we were able to find a higher amount of coarse residue compared to other mixer grinders. This was despite it having a small base and high RPM.

After grinding ginger and garlic, there were some unground chunks that were untouched.

The reason probably is because there is a notable gap between the blade and the jar floor. So, food could get stuck there and not get thoroughly ground. You can however avoid this by moving around the ingredients with the spatula giving it a chance to get uniformly ground.

Food sometimes gets stuck on top of the flow breaker lock.

Similarly, when grinding urad dal with a little water for Vada, you have to move around the mixture and scrape down from the sides with the spatula for the right consistency.

Idli batter ground to a fine consistency.

Grinding idli batter in the wet grinding jar was quite easy and efficient. As it uses a powerful motor, you can grind it quickly without the batter getting heated up. But the flow breaker doesn’t really have much of a benefit. Sometimes, it can be a hassle too, as food tends to get stuck on top of it and you have to scrape it and put it back in the mixture to get it ground.

We tried crushing ice and the results weren’t quite satisfactory when we used large ice cubes. Even after moving them around, a lot of the ice cubes were untouched. But it does a thorough job with smaller ice cubes that you typically find in the freezer’s inbuilt ice tray.

Juicing fruits with high water content gave excellent results.

The juicer design is pretty good as you get a tall strainer. Making juice from watery fruits like watermelon is absolutely easy. As it has a lid on the top, you can feed fruit pieces one by one which results in better juice extraction. 

Average noise level of Bosch Truemixx Mixer Grinder

The noise levels ranged between  77 to 80 decibels, which is in the same range as the rest of the mixer grinders we tested. But, the sound was quite annoying. Also, the mixer grinder had a tendency to vibrate a little bit. As it has vacuum suction feet, it remains in its place. But, the lid cap sometimes pop up when it vibrates as it doesn’t have any lock

Safety

Bosch Truemixx is one of the few mixer grinders with lid lock jars that facilitate hands-free grinding. It has strong vacuum suction feet, a shock-proof body and an overload protection switch that ensures safety.

Ease of Cleaning

The housing base can be wiped clean with a damp cloth. 

The jars are fairly easy to clean. Compared to other mixer grinders, the rubber beading is very easy to remove and so you can clean them with less effort. 

But the polycarbonate lids are not quite so. The lids get easily discoloured when you grind spices like garam masala, pepper, turmeric etc. Scraping off the dry ingredients from the lid as well as cleaning it is difficult as it has a lot of grooves and curves.

Durability And After Sales Service

The jars of the mixer grinder are made of 0.8mm thick stainless steel, while the blades measure 1.4mm in thickness. The handles are strong and appear to be durable. The lids get discoloured. But, it doesn’t break easily. The rubber beading is thick and durable too.

Bosch has a fairly wide after-sales service network. But, it might not be easy to find spares and get them repaired at the local appliance stores.

The manufacturers offer 2 year warranty on the product. But, unlike Preethi and Philps, they don’t offer an extended warranty on the motor.

Flaws, But Not Deal Breakers

The noise of Bosch Truemixx is comparatively high and a bit annoying. Sujata on the other hand, though it has a 900 watt motor, produces loud noise, but is not this annoying.

Next, as mentioned, cleaning the lids takes more effort compared to other mixer grinders.

The mixer grinder does its job well. But, features like pounding blades and flow breaker doesn’t provide any substantial benefit or superiority in terms of its performance. 

Comparison With Other Similar Models

Compared to Sujata Dynamix, which comes with a 900 watt motor, Bosch falls short in terms of grinding efficiency. Though Sujata has lesser power, owing to better design, it can crush ice in the wet grinding jar and grind smaller quantities in the chutney jar into a finer consistency. However, Sujata Dynamix doesn’t have a juicer jar. You may have to buy it separately.

When we examined the user reviews on e-commerce sites, we were able to find that a lot of people don’t really use the juicer jar. If you too fall into that category, you could take a look at Bosch Truemixx Style which comes in white colour with 3 jars.

If you don’t take up a lot of heavy-duty grinding, then you could consider the Bosch Truemixx with a 750-watt motor. Other than the motor capacity, there is hardly any difference in terms of its style.

Verdict

With a highly efficient motor, fairly good grinding efficiency and aesthetically pleasing design, Bosch Truemixx is one of the favourite options among Indian households. But it is not without flaws.
