Berg WRR 100 S Mixer Paddle 8mm Hexagonal x 500mm
Fantastic mixer/grape masher
I'm guessing this may be the first time this mixer has been bought or reviewed with this purpose in mind. After such a long summer my grape harvest is ripe and it is time to start the wine making process. Though relatively small scale, the task of mashing the grapes (treading in days gone by) has always been a real chore and usually taking several sessions to complete the job. On a moment of inspiration I bought this tool as an experiment and it is the best I have come across yet. I would definitely recommend it. Apparently it works pretty well for mixing stuff too but I might stick to using my old one for that so as to keep this one clean for next year's grapes.

Quite a substancial mixer and fits a standard chuck drill.

No good for white grout
Nice price & OK quality for the price, but the "Zinc-coated" feature is questionable, having shed black 'oxide' into 2 lots of abrasive white grout ... turning it more grey than it already was (Mapei Colorplus has a thick mix until it stands). Like the very cheap Titan paddle I first tried the zinc coating must be either very thin, or very poor quality, as the normally-feint black zinc sulphide - I believe it is - could not be removed fully, even when cleaned in a bucket of sand. Zinc galvanizing is probably robust, but cheap coating is not.
I needed to acquire a stainless steel paddle at short notice, Â£50+ for off the shelf, so I had a very simple one made at my local machine workshop for ~Â£20. No more worry of shedding 'oxide' colour into white grout.

Terrific for mixing grout and tile adhesive, although over priced.
A wee tip..... to clean it like new after use, fill a bucket with pebble dash or small stones, stick the paddle mixer in the bucket and run it at a slow speed. Also helps if you run a hose slowly into the bucket too.
