Today we would like to tell you about the latest submersible machine – Silanga BL800 UNIVERSAL. With this blender, you can chop, beat, mix, homogenize, prepare batter, minced meat, cocktails, smoothies, puree soups, baby food, as well as protein mixtures. Now let’s look at its functionality in more detail.

Blender first impression
The device is packed in a box made of thick cardboard, all parts are well fixed in it, nothing dangles or staggers, which is very important during transportation. The handle is made of slightly rough plastic, which is very pleasant to the touch. The device is easy and convenient to hold even with one hand. Together with the device there are two very capacious bowls – one of them is intended for whipping, the second is used for grinding. The material from which they are made is characterized by increased strength – far from all developers who put budget models on the market can boast of this. Each of the bowls has an anti-slip ring made of silicone on the bottom. Due to this, during operation, they will not slide on the surface of the countertop.
The blender is equipped with two high-speed modes – standard and turbo. You can choose the most suitable one with one hand. The manufacturer took care of the ergonomics of its products, equipping the device with a comfortable handle and optimally sized buttons.

Preparing the product for work
Before using such a blender for the first time, we carefully studied the user manual, thoroughly washed the bowls and knives under running tap water with liquid detergent, and only wiped the handle of the working unit with a damp cloth. The device is used for grinding and mixing various kinds of food – from liquid to solid, but there are still certain limitations. In particular, foods that are too hard, such as walnuts in shell or animal bones, should not be placed in the bowl.
In order for the products to be mixed as evenly as possible in the container, a sufficient amount of free space must be left in the bowls. Each bowl has a mark for the maximum level of ingredients. Liquid can be added if necessary. In particular, when preparing mashed vegetables or fruits, it is advisable to add a little water, but when chopping meat for minced meat, you should not do this.
Testing Blender Features
We made some simple tests – we prepared an omelette, minced meat for cutlets, wheat germ dough and curd sauce with fresh herbs. We started with an omelet, and decided to make the task more difficult and mixed the ingredients in a bowl with low sides. For an omelette, we took two eggs, 100 ml of milk, salt, ground pepper – we put it all in a bowl, then mixed it and beat it with a blender. Due to the fact that the nozzle has a domed shape, nothing splashed or splashed, the products mixed quite evenly, and the omelette came out airy and fluffy.
For minced meat, we decided to take a chicken fillet, cut it into small pieces and chopped the meat at the second speed, spending about 20 seconds on it. Then we added one onion to the meat, cutting it into 6 parts, after which we chopped the food for another 20 seconds. After that, it is enough to add salt and pepper and you can start frying cutlets or steaming them.
The smoothies were perfect too. For him, we took two pears of the Conference variety, the juice of one orange, one lemon (lime is fine instead), some fresh ginger and a glass of water. All this was then put into a blender bowl, five ice cubes were added and beaten until smooth. The result is a chilled airy drink. The cooking process (if you do not take into account the preparation) took only 20 seconds.

If you have already dealt with sprouted wheat, then you probably know that after sprouting, the grains still remain quite hard, so grinding them well is not an easy task. We took 300 grams of the product, put it in the bowl and turned on the motor on the first speed, then put half the onion and three peeled garlic cloves. After that, the blender worked for another 20 seconds, but already at the second speed. The tech did a great job. The finished dough can be laid out on a frying pan or baking sheet and frying can begin.
Cottage cheese sauce with greens also did not put the device to a standstill. We immediately loaded all the ingredients into the bowl – 30 grams of parsley, the same amount of basil, 200 grams of cottage cheese with 5% fat, 1/2 tablespoon of dry garlic, a pinch of pepper and salt. Instead of 50 grams of yogurt, you can pour milk, sour cream or yogurt – you can add more, depending on how thick the sauce you end up wanting to get. Grinded on the first speed, the process took less than a minute. The sauce came out smooth with a smooth consistency. The greens were completely crushed, mixed well with the cottage cheese. This dish is perfect for fish or meat, they can be seasoned with salads.
The device from the manufacturers really turned out to be universal. The blender did an excellent job even with fairly complex recipes, respectively, it will perform simple tasks with even greater ease. The device does not overheat at all, we really liked the ergonomics – the equipment is comfortable to hold in your hand, all controls are at hand, the assembly is of excellent quality, the parts are tightly fitted to each other. In general, we recommend this blender for purchase, besides it is not expensive at all.
