The Story of Sumeet Mixie, the first Indian Mixer grinder

The history of ‘Sumeet’, the first Indian mixie is very interesting. This is how the first Indian Mixie or mixer grinder came into existance:

The inventor of the first Indian Mixie or Mixer Grinder, Mr. Satya Prakash’s wife asked him to repair a Braun mixie she was using. Satya Prakash inspected the burnt Braun mixie and it dawned on him that the foreign mixies were not suitable for the rough and tough Indian cooking needs. These foreign mixies did not have the power to handle the spice grinding , dosa grinding and other tough jobs required by Indian housewives. So Satya Prakash Mathur, an employee of Siemens India, ventured out to make a factory for Indian made mixer grinders suitable for the Indian Kitchen.

Anyway, in 1963 Mr. Satya Prakash Mathur floated a company called Power Control and Appliances Company. 4 other employees of Siemens India also joined Mr. Mathur. By 1965 they had a good design of a workable small electric motor for the mixie. By 1970 they designed a single jar for both dry mixing and wet grinding. By 1980 Sumeet were selling about 50,000 mixer grinders every month.

Unfortunately for Sumeet their mixies were copied by other start-up companies and Sumeet slowly lost their share of the market.
