I have had the Bamix Gastro for a couple of weeks and have used it to make a simple smoothie with frozen fruit, superfood powders, almond milk. It turned out well. I was a little hesitant and should have blended some more, but was still good. I then made a squash soup and this also pureed well. I did notice that the all-clad soup pot had five or six small rings on the inside bottom. ***Does anyone know if I should have just moved the Bamix around and not placed it on the bottom of pot.*** I had a KA IB before and I did place it on bottom of pot and this was okay, but the piece of plastic in KA IB came loose and so I got the Bamix, plus the Bamix was all steel, no plastic touching food.
I have a mixture of excitement and of being cautious when using this IB. It is powerful. The changing of the blades looked a bit dangerous, but I am careful. I made the smoothie in a restaurant supply food steamer insert, stainless steel, recommended by a chowhound member and this is great.
***Would love to know of any ideas using the Bamix and which blade to use with it for each idea. I feel that I will use the multi blade for everything, but some ideas would be great.
