3.14 What is better for a mixer grinder: high wattage or high rpm?

Wattage defines motor power—higher the wattage, higher the ability to take the load. RPM stands for ‘rotation per minute’, higher the RPM, more powerful is the motor. However, higher RPM has a disadvantage as that can lead to heating up of the mixer grinder and makes it noisier. If you have to choose between the two, choose a mixer that has high wattage and a minimum of 15000 RPM.
