The Braun MultiQuick 7 is a well-built immersion blender with a fairly simple design, making it very easy to clean. Like most immersion blenders, it's meant to process food directly in your pot or pan. It also can handle hot food without a problem and it has a touch-sensitive control trigger, so it's easy to adjust its speed with only one hand. It also comes with several tools and inserts such as a food processor, a masher, and a whisk attachment to help you get the most out of its unique design. It's not able to blend ice, though, and it really struggles to process harder or more fibrous food like nuts or kale. However, if you're using it on stewed fruits and veggies, you shouldn't have too much of a problem.

Our Verdict

5.8 Multi-Purpose

The Braun MultiQuick 7 is sub-par for multi-purpose use. As it's an immersion blender, it's not meant for crushing ice. It also has a hard time processing nut butter as well as fibrous fruits and veggies. However, if you want a smoother soup or sauce, you can blend your ingredients directly in the pan, which is handy. It's also pretty easy to clean and it comes with a variety of tools and inserts to make the most of its design.

Pros
  • Food processing attachment with multiple inserts.
  • Easy to clean.
Cons
  • Struggles to completely process tougher food like almonds or kale.
  • Produces foamy-textured smoothies.
  • Can't crush ice.
5.3 Smoothies/Protein Shakes

The Braun MultiQuick 7 is disappointing for smoothies and protein shakes. It has a difficult time blending fibrous fruits and veggies like kale, which makes a grainy texture. Due to its design, it also adds a lot of air and foam into your drink. It also can't process ice. However, this blender is well-built and very easy to clean.

Pros
  • Easy to clean.
Cons
  • Struggles to completely process tougher food like almonds or kale.
  • Produces foamy-textured smoothies.
  • Can't crush ice.
3.1 Ice Crushing

The Braun MultiQuick 7 is bad for crushing ice. It's an immersion blender and isn't recommended for processing ice as its blades can easily jam.

7.7 Soups

The Braun MultiQuick 7 is good for soups. As an immersion blender, one of its key functions is to blend hot food right in your pot or pan. While it's not great at making smoothies as it has a hard time processing fibrous fruits and vegetables, it shouldn't have too much of a problem blending softened food like stewed tomatoes. It's also very easy to clean.

Pros
  • Can blend hot food.
  • Easy to clean.
Cons
  • Struggles to completely process tougher food like almonds or kale.
5.9 Professional Use

The Braun MultiQuick 7 is sub-par for professional use. This well-built immersion blender can be a handy tool in a culinary kitchen but it has some limitations. Thanks to its immersion design, it's meant to blend food directly in your pot or pan. However, it can't blend ice and it's not the right tool for producing nut butter. It also has more trouble blending fibrous fruits and vegetables. However, you shouldn't have too much of a problem blending hot, soft food. It also comes with a food processor attachment with different inserts like a julienne slicer.

Pros
  • Can blend hot food.
  • Food processing attachment with multiple inserts.
  • Easy to clean.
Cons
  • Struggles to completely process tougher food like almonds or kale.
  • Produces foamy-textured smoothies.
  • Can't crush ice.

The Braun MultiQuick 7 is a compact immersion blender. Its shaft is long enough to reach the bottom of most dutch ovens, and it can be easily stored in a kitchen drawer when not in use. You can also remove the blender shaft, which can make it easier to store.

Build Quality

This immersion blender has a good build quality. Its stainless steel shaft is both sleek and durable. The rubber grip feels nice and also helps you keep your hold on the blender as you use it. The plastic components of this blender feel nice, too; however, the transmission is made from plastic, which is a little disappointing.

The main beaker of this blender is fairly small and it doesn't have a spout. However, if you're just blending a single-serve smoothie, the jar should be more than enough. It also has a lid, so you can store it in the fridge for later, and you can put it in the dishwasher for easy clean-up.

The power cord of this blender is quite long, which is handy when your outlet isn't very close to you. It also has a little velcro tie so you can wind up the cord to keep it from getting tangled, but otherwise, there's no stowaway compartment for the cord.

The Braun MQ777 uses a pressure-sensitive speed trigger, so the more you press, the faster its blades spin. This design makes it easy to adjust its speed with one hand. It's not too loud at max speed, either.

The Braun MQ777 is passable at making almond butter. Although it can create an almond butter that's smooth and spreadable, it still leaves behind whole almonds that haven't been blended, even after several minutes.

Foamy

This blender is disappointing at making smoothies. It does a fairly good job of chopping up kale but there are still some parts of the leaf that aren't fully processed. It also produces a slightly foamy smoothie as the open design of the immersion blender can add a lot of air into your drink.

This immersion blender is well-suited for blending hot food and is a welcome addition to any soup lover's kitchen. It has a whisk attachment that's handy in a pinch when you want to make whipped cream and its masher attachment can be used to make mashed potatoes. Its food processing attachment is also loaded with extra features, too. Although we didn't test these features, there are different inserts for chopping, dicing, and shredding food, which can help make food prep easier.

The Braun MultiQuick 7 comes in three variants that have different amounts of additional features. We tested the MQ777 variant, which comes fully loaded. However, this immersion blender comes in several variants with different amounts of attachments, which are listed below.

Compared to other blenders

The Braun MultiQuick 7 is an immersion blender with parts that can go into the dishwasher for an easier clean. It also comes with several attachments as well as a food processor, which is nice for blending smaller amounts of food like sauces. However, it's not recommended for blending ice and it struggles with harder and more fibrous food like kale or nuts.

Braun MultiQuick 5

The Braun MultiQuick 5 and the Braun MultiQuick 7 are very similarly-performing immersion blenders. They both have similarly good build qualities and are exceptionally easy to clean. However, the MultiQuick 7 can produce spreadable almond butter in less time, it has a touch-sensitive speed control trigger, and it comes with way more tools and attachments. However, the MultiQuick 5 has a pulse/turbo mode and it produces a smoothie with a better texture.

Bamix Mono M133

The Bamix Mono M133 is a better immersion blender for soups or professional use than the Braun MultiQuick 7. The Bamix feels better-built, it can produce smoothies with a better texture, and it can also make bar-quality ice. However, the MultiQuick's blade assemblies are dishwasher safe, which makes it easier to clean, and it can produce smoother almond butter. It also comes with several tools and attachments to help you out in the kitchen.

Cuisinart Smart Stick Two-Speed Hand Blender

The Braun MultiQuick 7 is a better immersion blender for making soup than the Cuisinart Smart Stick Two-Speed Hand Blender. The Braun feels better built, its blade assemblies are dishwasher safe which makes it easier to clean, and it has trigger-sensitive speed controls so you can adjust its speed with only one hand. It also comes with several tools and attachments. However, the Cuisinart can crush ice and its smoothies have a better texture.

All-Clad KZ750DGT

The All-Clad KZ750DGT and the Braun MultiQuick 7 are similarly performing immersion blenders, but the All-Clad is more versatile. The All-Clad can produce slightly better almond butter and smoothies. It can also make bar-quality crushed ice. However, the Braun's blade assemblies can go into the dishwasher, which makes it easier to clean, and it comes with several tools and attachments like a whisking attachment to help you out in the kitchen. The Braun also feels significantly better built.
