    Hi,

    We are planning to get a wet grinder in a month's time...we are 4 elders+1 kid at our place...just looking for grinder which weighs less,could be cleaned easily and batter comes out smooth.....actually at my MIL's place,we have the old model traditional big wet grinder which we want to change...

    I am planning for table top kind of wet grinder but i have few confusions...Kindly clarify

    (1)whether to go about with tilting wet grinders or normal Table top wetgrinders.At my mom's place we have ultra wet grinder...its table top but cannot be tilted...but its working fine...tilting wet grinders,even though i have heard about it,i really havent seen people using it in many homes...many of them have the table top kind of wet grinder...that gives me a confusion whether tilting type is really worth :confused2:
    (2)which is better?...grinder with 3 stones or 2????...
    (3)which brand of grinder is good...????

    Please help me in selection:)

    Also i would like to know whether i need to look for certain other things while buying....

    Thanks in Advance
    Swaran

    Hi swarna,

    I have always used table top (not-titling), earlier it was sowbagya and now it is ultra. I find it easy and convnient to use. It is the two stone one and it works fine. Would like to hear about the 3 stone one from those who have used.

    My cousine had a tilting grinder, but she changed to regular table top because it was always having problem with the spring/suspension equipment that aids in tilting. Not sure if it was only her machine or if it is a general complaint with tilting model. I too would like to hear from ppl. who are using tilting wet grinder about their experience and reviews.... thanks for starting this thread :)

    dear akilaMani...
    thanks a lot for your first feedback and also for sharing your experiences here...
    yes as you say i too believe(not sure) that this tilting grinder has some problem thats why i dont see too many people using this,though heard its good...not seen any lady using it(in my circle)...thats why i was doubtful whether it would be good...look and cleaning factor,tilting looks better than normal but worried if that would be permanent...
    and same goes with 3 stone...i usually see people using 2 stone...
    so lets just wait for other ladies to pour in their feedback :)

    swaran,

    I have used ultra when it first came into the market. later i moved to premier tilting when i was restricted from lifting weights and managing with an table top was a problem. when i moved back to india, i opted for a tilting..it is compact, lesser space occupying..though i am told some models do have problems in the screw and the tilting..i have a sowbhagya shree for the past 4 years..and it is working fine...

    so both are good..depends on how you operate the grinder.

    I am using Butterfly 3-stone (conical) wet grinder. It is giving the best results so far compared to the wet grinders i have seen. It takes just about 15 mins for very fluffy idly batter while my aunt's 2-stone (cylindrical) Ultra grinder takes about 45 mins for the same.

    It is more of the stone setup than the brand. So i would strongly suggest you go for 3-stone conical shape wet grinder. I think the same is available in Ultra also.

    I purchased this grinder in July, 2006. When i was buying this table top model, my neighbor who has Ultra 2 stone grinder advised me to go for regular (huge) grinder because of the time it takes to grind. But i just went ahead and purchased this 3-stone (conical) model as i was convinced about the way 3-stone grinder works. Now i am glad i did. The performance matches the regular one and the size is convenient for a small family.

    As i said earlier, it is the stone layout which makes it more efficient. Once i forgot to place the small conical stone in the middle and the batter took ages to grind :bonk

    Before this, i used to use mixie for the batter.

    swaran i find the difference in the conical and the round stones..since i have used both..in the tilting, the stone is round and a little heavier than the ultra's stones.

    i find an more even batter then while using conical..again this maybe my personal feeling.s
