As bajaj has been making mixer grinders for a long time, they focus on powerful motors and unbreakable containers. The Bajaj stormix is their new design where they have worked on form for simplicity and powerful motor for less noise while grinding. In this design, they have thought about the color too, as white gets dirty very quickly due to the stain of chutney and juice.
But looking into the usability perspective, they have considered longevity but analyzed the making process of juice, chutney, and masala. But, they haven’t looked into visibility perspective in the making process. The user checks it many times for the perfect consistency they want. So, they have to always open the lid after using the mixer, but if bajaj added a transparent section in the cap, the problem would be solved.
