At first sight

The heavy motor block of a very nice-looking blender is made of several types of plastic: glossy dusty pink, matte gray and black. The coating is pleasant to the touch and not easily soiled.The design of the block can be called classic for devices of this type. Its cylindrical shape has a slight narrowing in the grip area, due to which the motor unit will be comfortable in the hand and will not be in danger of slipping.

Instructions

Arnica Diva Trend GH21593 instruction manual is a black and white 12-page A5 brochure. Information in paper version is presented in Turkish and English, and on the official Russian-language website of the company there is an electronic version with translation.

The instructions contain a description of the device with schematic drawings, an explanation of the operating process of all attachments, rules for caring for them, as well as recommendations regarding processing times for various types of products.

Control

The blender has only two modes: normal I and turbo II. It's simple, you won't get confused. No indicators are provided.

Exploitation

Before the first use, we carried out the standard procedure — we washed all the attachments, bowls, gearbox cover and wiped the motor block.

This immersion blender is great for its class due to its good power. It quickly and efficiently performs the tasks of chopping, mixing and whipping. However, when using mixing attachments, the design of the blender becomes too long, which sometimes leads to splashing of the mass even when working in a deep bowl. Despite this, the device completely satisfied us in other functions. Assembly and disassembly of the attachments is easy. Having two speeds is quite enough for everyday use.

The instructions indicate the maximum continuous operating time for the blender attachment only — 15 seconds. After this, a one-minute break for the device is recommended. We often exceeded these 15 seconds without paying attention, but this did not affect the performance of the device.

Overall, the Arnica Diva Trend GH21593 is a simple and easy-to-use device, but perhaps produces a little more noise than average for similar devices. The sound of the blender is slightly above average and quite sharp.

Care

The care rules are standard: the motor unit should be wiped with a damp soft cloth, all other parts can be washed under running water, avoiding moisture on the cover gearbox. The metal blender attachment can be washed in the dishwasher. The use of chemically aggressive and abrasive products is strictly prohibited.

Our measurements

During testing, we measured energy consumption using a wattmeter. The maximum recorded power was:

  • chopping tomatoes (blender) — 91 W
  • chopping walnuts (chopper) – 26 W
  • preparation of pate (chopper) — 290 W

For 1 minute of grinding ingredients into pate, the device consumed 0.004 kWh.

Practice tests

Chopped tomatoes (blender)

About 400 g of Slivka tomatoes were crushed at first speed in 20 seconds.

Large pieces of skin were still visible in the thick mass, and to be sure, we turned on the blender for another 20 seconds, and finally finished off the tomatoes with several starts of the Turbo mode for a couple of seconds each. As a result, the skins became significantly smaller, the seeds were partially ground, and the mass itself turned out to be quite airy.

Not ideal, but acceptable for an immersion blender.

We added cilantro, salt and ground black pepper to the resulting tomato mass and turned on the engine again. It only took 10 seconds to chop the leaves and mix this time.

It was not possible to completely crush the leaves, but the remaining pieces are so small that we evaluate the result positively.

Result: very good.

Banana and blackcurrant smoothie (blender)

To prepare the smoothie, take two bananas, add 50 ml of milk and about 300 g of black currants. In 35 seconds at first speed, the ingredients were thoroughly mixed and finely chopped.

Small fragments of berry skins remained in the drink, but in moderate quantities.

Result: excellent.

Walnuts (chopper)

The instructions warn that the blender should not be used to grind ice, nutmeg, coffee beans and other hard products, but walnuts are included in the list of permitted ones. So, it took us 8 seconds to chop the nuts. Turbo mode was not needed.

Result: excellent.

Pate (grinder)

The first half of the products was placed in the chopper bowl: chicken liver pre-fried with carrots and onions, boiled chicken breast and butter at room temperature. The top was sprinkled with salt, nutmeg and a handful of chopped walnuts from the previous dough.

We closed the lid, installed the motor block and turned on the first speed. As soon as the mass sank and there was enough free space, we added the second part of the ingredients and started the device again.

In total, the blender did the job in a minute. The entire multilayer mass was thoroughly mixed and beaten well. We did not find any unground pieces. During the process, the blender did not slip and did not require intervention on our part.

Result: excellent.

Whipped egg whites (mixer)

250 ml of proteins were placed in a container, adding sugar and a pinch of citric acid in the process.

Sharp peaks in the glossy protein mass began to appear by the end of the fourth minute. The engine unit barely warmed up, and the device did not generate distress signals. But what we didn’t like was washing the countertop, floor and partly the walls from small splashes afterwards. In the middle of the process, we even transferred the mass to a container much deeper (into the pan)… but this did not help.

Result: whipping is excellent, construction is so-so.

Conclusions

The Arnica Diva Trend GH21593 blender turned out to be quite powerful, it easily processes various products and is perfect for the home kitchen as an appliance for simple culinary tasks — and will certainly decorate the space.

The disadvantages include the rather high noise and poor design of the mixer, which contributes to splashing when whipping even in a deep bowl. Although the whipping quality is excellent.

Pros:

  • nice design
  • efficiency of all three nozzles
  • spacious containers made of thick plastic
  • convenient shape of the chopper bowl (with a spout and a large handle)

Minuses:

  • quite loud
  • splashing when whipping
