Morphy Richards is manufactured by Bajaj Aplpiances under their brand. Spare parts are no different than Bajaj as they themselves have similar line of products but different designs etc.

I would say stay away from Murphy Richards.We bought a mixer grinder as we thought this is marketed by Bajaj . Big Mistake !

Poor fit and finish ( obviously we saw this when we bought ) and recurring problems .If possible stay away from Pai Traders in Koramangala,Bangalore.

@carboy, @dadu & @rajakumar Thanks for getting back.

I know how Morphy Richards OTG performs as one of my friend has it. And well we've been cooking all sort of stuff that Nigella Lawson or Donna Hays or participants of MasterChef Australia have been cooking. It is a pretty good OTG.

Really need someone's advise who owns a Prestige OTG.

Just found couple of reviews on mouthshut.

Prestige: http://www.mouthshut.com/review/Pres...iew-nqtoussrnm

Morphy Richards: http://www.mouthshut.com/review/Morp...iew-sulsuooqlm

Yikes!

I have prestige induction stove, man only misery since bought.It conks off every 3 months like it is scheduled, it simply makes a noise while working and then stops working, it has been going to the prestige authorised repair and comes back after 3 days all fine. they do not tell what the problem is , its repaired is all they say.I am fed up with the bickerings at home, any suggestions for a better brand or usage would be appreciated.

Pigeon is better than Prestige but not great.

We are using prestige since last 4-5 years now. Happy with it. Its the basic 17lts one.


Edit: Just realized that MS link for prestige is the review posted by me!

Do we get a 110 volt Mixer grinder in India, as one of us wants to take it to USA. Its quite difficult to get a mixer grinder for Indian cooking purpose in the US.

In Bombay, I have seen that a lot of the big local stainless steel shops carry the 110 V Mixer. Other than that you can also order it online in the USA.
Models

Even the Oster brand in the US is pretty good & not expensive - Oster

my uSa friends swear by something called the magic bullet (or such). tell him to ask around there. ordered by ebay or amazon IIRC.
Your Discount Store - YDS.com.au - Magic Bullet - Full House is one quick link i can see.

he claims the national mixie suitably modified for 110V died on 1st use.

YMMV of course

350 W - great for blending & mikshakes & juices. But not really good enough for our Indian cooking. I would recommend a minimum 500 W.

Looking at getting a small (220-260lit ) refrigerator. Budget is max 18k with stabilizer. I can get Whirlpool 220L, Samsung250l/LG 240l within this price. Was astonished to learn that one can get Electrolux 280l for 14k, Videocon 300l for 19k ! Would one suggest getting Electrolux?

I use that myself in India. Works beautifully. Not meant for heavy weight usage (idly dosa batter) but then masala, chutneys and all work good.

Black and decker in my mind is an awesome brand today for small appliances.
