With its multiple attachments, you can also whisk egg whites, whip cream, or chop vegetables, nuts, and herbs easily and quickly without a lot of mess and hassle.

When it comes to convenient, versatile blending, the Braun Hand Blender Multiquick is the go-to tool for busy chefs everywhere.

Braun Multiquick Artiste/professional

The third Multiquick is the Braun MR5550 Artiste/professional version. This machine offers 600 watts of power and various attachments, including the detachable blender shaft and stainless steel whisk that we’ve seen before, but can also come with a multi-function tool, large, medium, or small choppers, and an ice crusher.

In addition, this hand blender is anti-splash, so you won’t make a mess in your kitchen.

This Multiquicks Fresh-System also helps to keep your food fresh for longer, it uses an extraction system to expell and keep air out, creating vacuum preservation.

Advantages

Braun offered one of the original hand blenders and so is uniquely placed to know what works and what doesn’t in this genre of appliance. Their blenders are known for being powerful and lasting quite a while, which make it stand out among similarly classed appliances.

The Braun Multiquick’s attachments also cause it to stand out from the crowd. While many hand blenders seem to be geared mainly towards chopping soft foods, the Braun has attachments for chopping and even crushing ice, which make it a special little blender indeed.

Disadvantages

This blender suffers from some of the same issues that plague other budget hand blenders. Users report motors that burn out, plastic casing that cracks, and attachments that begin to fall off when you change them one too many times. While these problems may be normal, they are still frustrating when you’re faced with chopping by hand or using a bulky blender as an alternative.

In addition, North American users may find it frustrating that the high-end model of the Braun Hand Blender, Multiquick Artiste/professional, is difficult to find in their market. No one quite knows why Braun has chosen not to make them more readily available but the fact that they have turns some customers off.

Summary

Though the Braun Hand Blender, Multiquick, does not completely overcome the issues that other hand blenders suffer from, the power and attachment options that it offers make it one of the most popular hand blenders on the market.
