I purchased my first Swiss made Bamix wand when I was setting up house in 1981, although they had been manufactured in Switzerland since 1954. At the time, Bamix was a very new concept in Western Australia and every houseproud homemaker simply “had to have one”. It has served me faithfully throughout the past 29 years, without any malfunctions or problems, so I was thrilled when www.everten.com.au offered me the opportunity to review the current Bamix Gastro 200.
My first impression has left me even more amazed than I already was. My old Bamix is only 100 W in power, whereas the new Gastro 200 is 240 W – more than twice as powerful! The Gastro 200 is also built with a 4.5 centimetres longer immersion section of the wand, allowing for improved liquidising to be conducted in deeper mixes.
