A new element in the design of the blender is the use of a modern motor with a high rotation speed, with the ability to adjust in different modes, which makes the knives work optimally when processing any ingredients. The rather heavy metal body gives the device good stability during operation. The blender itself is quite tall, which allows it to have an impressive jug..
Engine power – 2 HP, but with losses due to friction and tightness, 1.8 HP remains to operate the knives. This is enough to quickly and efficiently chop any prepared food, such as ice, nuts, raw fruits and vegetables..

The Diamond blender is capable of many operations. Of course, he will not replace a meat grinder, but he will grind boiled meat well.

The submersible KitchenAid Artisan model is so liked by some users that no cooking in the kitchen can do without it. Its owners come up with new cocktails, smoothies, try new recipes for cream soups.
Some people complain that it is impossible to get minced meat with an Artisan blender. But I must say that the device is not suitable for making a large volume of minced meat in one session. Medium portions can be successfully obtained.
It is necessary to cut the meat smaller, free it from veins, cartilage and bones, wash and dry it slightly, then the blender’s power will be enough for its processing.
