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.

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.
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.
This blender doesn't come with an additional beaker.
This blender has two fixed blades on the end of its shaft and they don't seem replaceable, even with tools. However, the shaft and blades are dishwasher-safe, and once you remove it from the blender motor, you can put it in your dishwasher's top rack for easy cleaning.
The Braun MQ777 comes with a plastic lid that pops on and off of its beaker so that you can store food in the fridge.
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.
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.

For an immersion blender that makes a better smoothie, check out the Breville Control Grip.

This blender doesn't have any programs or modes.
Cleaning the Braun MultiQuick 7 is outstandingly easy. You can run it under warm water for a few seconds and easily wipe the shaft down to ensure it's clean. You can also put the shaft as well as the jar in the dishwasher.
