    Hi Vatsi,

    After coming to US i brought 3 mixis one GE, one was some unknown brand, and another sunbeam. Now I have brought Osterizer 14-speed blender from Walmart and it is working well for the past 6 months. i however don't remember the cost but i'm sure it is within 30 to 40 dollars. other than our regular kitchen masala use, i am also able to grind idly, dosa.. batters well. for dry ones, i brought black and decker coffee and spice grinder and it works well; it costs about 18 -20 dollars.

    Try Hamilton beach blender

    Hi Vatsi,

    Welcome!

    You may want to try Hamilton beach blender - 16speed, it works well for idli and dosa batter.

    Though I would want to bring a table top grinder / mixie from India when I go this Dec, I recently bought Hamilton beach blender. You can get it for less than $30 in Costco or Walmart. There are various speeds, go for the higher ones for heavy grinding.

    Happy shopping!

    Bigger blades

    Hi Vatsi,

    We bought Hamilton Beach but found it not very useful, however, learnt later that we should have looked for any brand (including Hamilton Beach) with blades that are wide enough. But luckily for us, we found an Indian store here in San Jose specially selling Indian electronic items suited for use here in the US. So, we rushed and bought Preeti mixie and man, it works wonderfully for us!

    I now make idli, dosa batter at home and make all the chutneys, juices, powders etc at home too!

    Osterizer is good

    As mentioned by Jaya, I too have a Osterizer blender.

    It is well suited to grind batter, dry powder & juices. But don't expect idlis to be too soft as grinded in grinder. It is not the case even if you have a preethi/Sumeet mixies from India.
