Now let us look at the features in detail.
Philips HL7720 houses a 750 Watt motor. The 750W motors are powerful and this one in particular is the toughest in the market.
It grinds anything with ease and is smooth in operation. The motor is housed in an advanced air ventilation system, thereby efficiently cooling the mixer grinder on the go.
The higher wattage in the motor usually increases the sound or noise, and this increases with the wattage. The Philips HL 7720 mixer grinder too has the same problem, the noise is high.
But then the question arises as to for how long will the mixer grinder be used?. The higher wattage also ensures reduced time in grinding.
Number/Size of Jars
There are three jars in the mixer grinder:
- 1.5L Wet Grinding Jar
- 1L Dry Grinding Jar
- 0.4L Chutney Jar
Considering the size of the jars, it perfectly suits the medium sized family of 3-4 Members. The Large wet grinding jar makes sure that you make enough batter for the whole family.
Be it Idli Dosa or Pancakes, the large jar does it all.
There is more than enough capacity in the Dry grinding jar too, perfectly for any dry ingredients to make masalas in the festivals.
Chutney Jar has 0.4L capacity, which is tad disappointing. A 0.5L would have worked wonders.
All the jars are made up of stainless steel, which are good quality and have a long life. The Reverse Quadra Flow technology in the jars ensure the ingredients don’t stick to the walls and grind smoothly.
The Jar lids are made up of ABS plastic, and fit perfectly, although the lids could have had a lock system, which would secure the lid. And the lids also should have been transparent ones for better experience.
The handles on the jar are sturdy and are of good quality plastic, they fit perfectly in your hands and have good grip too.
If these factors are of least significance then you can consider this mixer grinder.
The design of the mixer grinder is fairly good and simple, it has only one color combination of White and maroon.
The mixer grinder has a large dial for easy operation, the dial looks and feels premium.
Also the coupler(part that attaches the jar to the main unit) is a unique one, which allows for easy maintenance, keeping the mixer clean and tidy.
If you are looking for a fancy color you would be disappointed if not this mixer grinder ticks all the right boxes in terms of design.

The powerful motor, advanced ventilation system and simple design make it a worthy purchase.
The jars are good and have good capacity and are made up of high quality stainless steel. The mixer grinder overall is easy on maintenance and reliable for longer usage.

And, consider the loud noise. Although this problem is present in all mixer grinders of 750W variants.
The safety on the mixer grinder is standard one that all mixer grinders have, that is it cuts the power with overload or uneven voltage.

Philips HL7720 Vs HL7756
Comparing the two Philips variants we see that both the mixer grinders are same in almost all the corners except for the design and color.
The Philips HL7756 also has a 750W motor and three jars. The capacity of the jars are also the same, with Larger jar being 1.5L and the chutney jar 0.3L.
The only difference I could find, other than the color and design, is the weight. Philips HL7756 is lighter than HL7720.
Also the performance on Philips HL7756 was slightly better than Philips HL7720.
So, if you are confused between the two, go for the color and design.
Also consider Philips mixer grinder which is a mixer grinder cum food processor.
