Crushing Guide

Shredder – What to look for – Recommended models

Shredders are currently one of the most popular kitchen appliances and offer a great variety of possibilities. They are equally suitable for chopping off baking ingredients at the touch of a button as well as conjuring up smoothies from a variety of fruits and vegetables. However, the great popularity that results in a vast variety of brands and models is available. These are unfortunately not always suitable for every user and it must be carefully weighed which features are needed and which are dispensable. Careful selection can prevent you from unnecessarily spending a lot of money on technology whose full potential you will never take advantage of, or that you buy a device that does not perform well closetdisappears and must be replaced after a short time by buying a sufficiently powerful model.

Main feature: engine power

The power of the engine is the central aspect of a crusher, because it depends largely on what the device can be used for. If you only want to process soft fruits such as nectarines, citrus fruits, bananas or grapes to delicious fruit juices, is virtually everyone shredder as well as. If, however, high demands are made on the device and hard vegetables such as carrots, kohlrabi or even nuts are to be minced, then the engine must be adequately powerful. In particular, the production of smoothies, the whole fruit, thus shell and seeds, makes high demands on performance. When looking at various product tests is immediately obvious: hardly a good model has a motor power of less than 300 watts and the majority of the recommended models is 350, 400 or 500 watts of power. Since the devices are usually only a few seconds or minutes in use, should be saved here in any case. Even soft fruit is shredded faster and better by a powerful device. Otherwise, a powerful engine means it does not overheat so quickly and has a higher life expectancy. The three best models found by Stiftung Warentest 08/2014 are the WMF Kult X. shredder (0416250011), WMF Lineo shredder and KitchenAid 5KFC3515E.

Knife – Cleaning – Accessories

In addition to the engine power, especially the knives are important. More blades distribute the power of the engine better on the contents of the shredder and work more efficiently. The blades must be made of high quality steel to keep them sharp for a long time. A rule of thumb is that the less flexible the knife is, the longer it stays sharp. Also important is the structure of the shredder. The seals must be of high quality, at the same time the device should be easy to disassemble into as many parts as possible to simplify cleaning. Diverse accessories, on the other hand, are less important and their necessity is more a matter of taste.
