Professional Use

The Braun MultiQuick 7 is a well-built immersion blender with a fairly simple design. It also can handle hot food without a problem and 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, like a food processor, a masher, and a whisk attachment to help with various food prep tasks.

Our Verdict

6.4 Multi-Purpose

The Braun MultiQuick 7 is okay for multi-purpose use. It's an immersion blender, so you can use it to blend hot food directly in a pot or pan. It makes a fairly smooth puree with fibrous ingredients, so it's adequate recipes like a kale smoothie or broccoli soup, and will make a smoother blend with softer ingredients. While it's not ideal for tougher blends like crushed ice or nut butter, it comes with a food processing bowl with different blades for slicing, chopping, and grating. It's easy to clean by hand, and its components are dishwasher-safe.

Pros
  • Can blend hot food.
  • Food processing attachment with multiple inserts.
  • Easy to clean.
Cons
  • Takes a while to process tough ingredients.
  • Not suitable for crushing ice.
6.4 Smoothies (Single Serving)

The Braun MultiQuick 7 is alright for making single-serve smoothies. Since it's an immersion blender, it's not the most convenient for that purpose because you need to hold onto the blender for the whole process. Still, it makes a decently smooth blend with fibrous fruits and vegetables, so something like a kale smoothie won't have an overly grainy texture. It also comes with a 20oz beaker that you can use for blending.

Pros
  • 20oz beaker included.
  • Easy to clean.
Cons
  • Takes a while to process tough ingredients.
  • Not suitable for crushing ice.
6.8 Smoothies (Multiple Servings)

The Braun MultiQuick 7 is adequate for making multiple servings of smoothies. It doesn't fully process fibrous ingredients but can still produce a fairly smooth batch of smoothies with kale or blueberries. It's also not the easiest to use for that purpose since it takes a few minutes to produce the best results. On the plus side, it comes with a beaker you can use for blending, and it's easy to clean by hand.

Pros
  • 20oz beaker included.
  • Easy to clean.
Cons
  • Takes a while to process tough ingredients.
4.4 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.

Pros
Cons
  • Not suitable for crushing ice.
9.0 Soups

The Braun MultiQuick 7 is fantastic for soups. Since it's an immersion blender, you can use it to blend hot ingredients directly in a pot or pan for recipes like soup or sauce. It makes a fairly smooth blend with big batches of fibrous ingredients, but recipes with kale or broccoli may have a somewhat grainy texture. Still, it's very easy to clean by hand and has a wide range of speed settings to suit your recipe.

Pros
  • Can blend hot food.
  • Easy to clean.
Cons
  • Takes a while to process tough ingredients.
7.3 Professional Use

The Braun MultiQuick 7 is decent for professional use. It's sturdy and well-suited for blending recipes like soups, sauces, and purees with hot ingredients. It makes a fairly smooth blend with fibrous ingredients like kale and can handle tough tasks like making nut butter, although it's not ideal for that. It also comes with a food processing bowl with various blades for purposes like slicing and shredding. Its components are also dishwasher-safe.

Pros
  • Can blend hot food.
  • Food processing attachment with multiple inserts.
  • Easy to clean.
Cons
  • Takes a while to process tough ingredients.
  • Not suitable for crushing ice.
  • 6.4 Multi-Purpose
  • 6.4 Smoothies (Single Serving)
  • 6.8 Smoothies (Multiple Servings)

Compared To Other Blenders

The Braun MultiQuick 7 is an immersion blender with a variety of accessories, including a food-processing bowl. Compared to other hand blenders with food processors, like the Breville Control Grip or the KitchenAid 5-Speed Hand Blender, it comes with more additional blades, including blades for shredding, julienne cuts, and a special disk for slicing potatoes into french fries. However, if you're mainly planning to use it as a blender for recipes like soup, models like the All-Clad KZ750DGT and the Ninja Foodi Power Mixer System can make a smoother blend with fibrous fruits and vegetables.

If you're looking for more options, check out our recommendations for the best immersion blenders, the best budget blenders, and the best blenders.

There are only small differences in their blending performances, but the 7 comes with a variety of accessories, including a masher and a food processing bowl with extra blades for purposes like chopping veggies and grating cheese. Its design gives you much more control over the blending speed. On the other hand, if you're just looking for a simple blender, the 5 is quieter when it's running. 

Braun MultiQuick 9

The Braun MultiQuick 9 and the Braun MultiQuick 7 have different strengths. The 9 is sturdier, a bit quieter, and makes nut butter with less effort on your part. However, the 7 has a wider variety of attachments, including a masher and a food processing bowl with several blades for different purposes, like shredding and chopping. 

KitchenAid KHBBV53

The KitchenAid KHBBV53 and the Braun MultiQuick 5 have different strengths.

It's also better at blending fibrous ingredients, so it can make smoother soups and smoothies with ingredients like kale and broccoli.

The Breville Control Grip is better than the Braun MultiQuick 5 for most uses. The Breville makes a smoother blend with small batches of fibrous ingredients, and it's easier to use for recipes like nut butter. It's able to crush ice and it's easier to clean by hand. However, the Braun is much quieter when its running. Both blenders come with food processing bowls, but the Braun's comes with more blade inserts, including one for making french fries and one for shredding.

Vitamix Immersion Blender

It has a sturdier build and does a better job of blending fibrous ingredients like kale or broccoli, meaning it can make better-blended soups and smoothies. It comes with a jar you can use for blending, a whisk attachment, and a food-processing bowl with a variety of accessories, including blades for shredding and chopping.

Cuisinart Smart Stick Two-Speed Hand Blender

The Braun MultiQuick 7 is better than the Cuisinart Smart Stick Cordless Hand Blender for most purposes. It's better built and makes a smoother blend with ingredients like kale or broccoli. It also includes a food processing bowl with blade assemblies for chopping, shredding, and mashing. The Cuisinart is battery-powered, which you might find more convenient, especially if your kitchen is short on outlets.

Its blending arm is detachable and can go in your dishwasher, and it comes with a beaker and several accessories, including a food processing bowl. However, the Bamix feels much sturdier, and it's quieter when it's running.

All-Clad KZ750DGT

The Braun MultiQuick 7 is better than the All-Clad KZ750DGT for most purposes. The Braun is much sturdier, quieter, and comes with accessories like a whisk, beaker, and food processing bowl.

On the other hand, the Bamix is much sturdier and isn't as loud when it's running.

Cuisinart EvolutionX RHB-100

Build Quality

This immersion blender has 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.

It's alright at processing small batches of fibrous ingredients. Like most immersion blenders, it's not the most convenient to use since you have to hold the power button down and move the blending arm up and down constantly in the mix. However, in the end, it makes a decently smooth blend with ingredients like kale, although it still has some grains left over.

It's okay for processing bigger batches of fibrous ingredients. Like most immersion blenders, it takes several minutes of blending to get the best results. If you're making something like broccoli soup in a deep pot, it produces a fairly smooth puree with ingredients like kale, with no big leafy bits left over.

It's almost impossible to use for crushing ice. The shape of the blade guard is too small to allow the ice cubes to reach the blades. Even if you try to work the blender at an angle, it mostly fails to crush them.

It's passable at making nut butter. Like most immersion blenders, it's not that easy to use, especially for recipes like nut butter that require several minutes of blending. However, it's not as tedious to use as models like the Vitamix Immersion Blender since there's less need to clean the blades with a spatula or knife every few minutes. It's tiring to hold the power button down for such a long time, but in the end, it produces smooth, spreadable nut butter with a few unprocessed chunks left over.

It has a wide range of speed settings for an immersion blender. The power button is pressure-sensitive, and the harder you push, the faster the blades spin, so it's easy to make small adjustments with one hand. You can start at a lower setting to help prevent spattering and fine-tune the blade speed to suit your recipe.

Cleaning

It's very easy to clean by hand. Running the blender in the beaker with soap and water helps dislodge some residue from the blending arm and blades. You need to wipe the outside of the blending arm and the blades with a sponge or brush, but there aren't parts that are very difficult to reach, and overall it's an easy process.
