Every year, manufacturers of household appliances launch many models of blenders on the market, which differ from each other not only in overall dimensions, but also in performance. Due to this device, you can replace a number of household appliances — chopper, food processor, mixer and so on. Today we want to present you one of the latest models — Silanga BL550.
With the help of such a device, you can enjoy the most delicate fruit purees, smoothies and so on every day. The set includes one shaker, a lid for drinking and storing prepared drinks, a motor base, a knife block and detailed Russified instructions.
Main operational characteristics and features of the device
First of all, I would like to note that we liked its compact overall dimensions in this blender: the size of the motor base is only 16 cm in height and 12 cm in diameter. The volume of the shaker is 550 ml: it is 23 cm high and 8 cm in diameter. The weight of the product is 1 kg, the engine power is not too large — 300 W, but this parameter is quite enough for the blender to develop a large number of revolutions: from 22,000 up to 24,000 per minute. The knife block is a complex of cutting elements, including four blades. They are made from high quality food grade stainless steel. The knives here are self-sharpening, so you don’t have to think about sharpening them if necessary.
The body of the motor block is made of high quality plastic. It does not remain any kind of pollution, and dust does not accumulate. The shaker is made of environmentally friendly plastic, it is transparent, weighs very little, so it is easy to take it with you even on a long journey. It is absolutely safe to use the device, as it has a special protection system against unintentional start. The engine is installed reliable, high-quality protection against possible overheating is provided, which can significantly extend the life of the device.

The shaker is characterized by a significant volume, which allows you to work with almost any product, regardless of their hardness. In the working container, even fairly tough vegetables can be chopped. High engine power ensures high-quality grinding, which takes a minimum amount of time. The shaker also has a special drinking lid, which has a tight valve that prevents smoothies from spilling.
The shaker is securely fixed on the motor block — it does not slip from it even with significant physical exertion. We have already said earlier that it is plastic, and it is made from environmentally friendly material that does not emit bisphenol during operation and does not form toxins upon contact with food. The material also does not absorb foreign colors and odors. Thanks to the special shape, the shaker does not slip and is comfortable to hold in your hand.
The product is very convenient to use, besides, it is quite simple to work with it — you just need to put the products in the container, fix it in the corresponding grooves and lightly press on the bottom of the bottle. There are no buttons on the surface of the case — a small child will definitely not get hurt when starting, the main thing is to handle the knife block carefully, but older children can easily prepare the desired smoothie or fruit puree for themselves. The lids are equipped with high-quality seals: we even tried to shake them hard, but nothing spilled.
Smoothie Silanga BL-550
According to milkshake recipes, you need to add a little less ingredients and milk (there is a special mark on the shaker), as it foams and whips. With other products, this is not necessary. We made smoothies from a mixture of pears and apples, water and honey, tangerines with the addition of apples and kiwi. The preparation of any drinks involves the addition of liquid, if you add more — we get a smoothie or cocktail, if less, then you can puree the pulp of fruits and vegetables.
I liked the power of the engine — it grinds food almost instantly, but it does not reach the level of puree for newborns, it turns out a little larger. The number of revolutions allows you to prepare one serving of smoothies in 20-30 seconds. The motor is capable of running for approximately one minute, after which it should be allowed to rest for approximately 10-15 minutes. The design is quite simple, all elements are easy to wash. There was only one detail that I did not like in this model — it costs a little more compared to analogues.
