The Braun MultiQuick 9 is an immersion blender with a sleek look and a durable build. You can easily adjust the speed with one hand thanks to its pressure-sensitive speed trigger, and they're designed to get the blades closer to what you're blending. While it can hot blend, unfortunately, it has some difficulty crushing ice, making almond butter, and fully blending smoothie ingredients like kale, so it isn't very versatile. However, it's easy to clean, and its components are dishwasher-safe, too.

Our Verdict

6.9 Multi-Purpose

The Braun MultiQuick 9 is fair for multi-purpose use. This immersion blender is well-built and durable, and you can easily clean it by hand or in your dishwasher. It can hot blend ingredients to make soups and purees, too. However, it struggles to crush ice, make almond butter, and fully blend smoothie ingredients like kale.

Pros
  • Well-built and easy to clean.
  • Dishwasher-safe.
  • Hot blends.
Cons
  • Struggles to fully blend fibrous ingredients like kale.
  • Takes some time to crush ice.
  • Makes a crunchy, chunky almond butter.
6.2 Smoothies/Protein Shakes

The Braun MultiQuick 9 is acceptable for smoothies and protein shakes. It has a durable build, and it's easy to clean by hand or in a dishwasher. However, it produces a foamy, leafy smoothie, as it struggles to fully blend leafy greens like kale.

Pros
  • Well-built and easy to clean.
Cons
  • Struggles to fully blend fibrous ingredients like kale.
4.5 Ice Crushing

The Braun MultiQuick 9 is poor for ice crushing. It can crush ice, but the ice tends to get stuck behind the blades, so you have to repeatedly stop the blender and use a spatula or hot water to remove the ice before continuing. The resulting ice is a bit chunky, so you have to crush it more before using it in a frozen drink.

Pros
  • Well-built and easy to clean.
Cons
  • Ice gets stuck behind the blades.
  • Takes some time to crush ice.
7.8 Soups

The Braun MultiQuick 9 is very good for soups. It's well-built, and it can hot blend ingredients. You can easily wash it by hand, or you can put the shaft in the dishwasher for an easier clean. However, it struggles to fully blend fibrous ingredients like kale, which may be disappointing if you want a smooth blend.

Pros
  • Well-built and easy to clean.
  • Dishwasher-safe.
  • Hot blends.
Cons
  • Struggles to fully blend fibrous ingredients like kale.
7.0 Professional Use

The Braun MultiQuick 9 is decent for professional use. It has a solid and durable feel, and it's easy to clean. It can also be used to hot blend ingredients. However, it doesn't have the most versatile performance, as it struggles to crush ice, make spreadable almond butter, and fully blend smoothie ingredients.

Pros
  • Well-built and easy to clean.
  • Hot blends.
Cons
  • Struggles to fully blend fibrous ingredients like kale.
  • Ice gets stuck behind the blades.
  • 6.9 Multi-Purpose

The Braun MultiQuick 9 is an immersion blender. It has a long shaft that can reach the bottom of most dutch ovens. When it's not in use, you can store it in a kitchen drawer. The shaft is removable for easier storage, too.

Build Quality

The Braun MultiQuick 9 has a great build quality. The shaft is made of stainless steel, and the blades are designed so you can move them closer to what you're blending. The top part of the blender is made of plastic, which feels durable, and there's a rubber grip pad for your hand. Unfortunately, the transmission is made of plastic, which is a little disappointing. Still, it feels significantly better-built than the GE Appliances Immersion 2-Speed, which also has a stainless steel design.

This blender is sub-par at making smoothies. It struggles to fully blend ingredients like banana and kale, so you have to stop and shake the beaker to ensure that all the chunks are incorporated into the mix. It makes a thick, foamy smoothie, and it has a leafy texture due to all the unprocessed chunks of kale.

Crushed Ice
Preparation Time

Ice Quality
Poor

The Braun MultiQuick 9 is disappointing for crushing ice. Crushed ice tends to get trapped under the blades, so you have to stop and loosen the ice using a spatula or hot water. While it can crush the ice, you still need to break up the chunks before placing it in a glass. If you want an immersion blender that does a much better job at crushing ice, check out the Bamix Mono M133.

Compared To Other Blenders

The Braun MultiQuick 9 hand blender is an immersion blender that comes with several different attachments. Unlike the Braun MultiQuick 7, it has a unique design that helps you get the blades closer to the ingredients you're blending, and it can crush ice. However, its overall performance isn't very versatile, and it doesn't have a lot of different speed settings or extra features.

Braun MultiQuick 7

That said, the MultiQuick 7 comes with a lid for its personal jar, which some users may prefer.

GE Appliances Immersion 2-Speed
