Braun MQ505 Multiquick Hand Blender – Product Overview

The convenience of hand blenders is that you blend, whisk, chop, and mash your ingredients right in the pot. No extra containers are needed, nothing extra to clean up.

The Braun MQ505 Multiquick Hand Blender is a reasonably priced immersion or hand blender with a powerful German-Engineered 350 Watt motor. The motor is evenly balanced to provide long-lasting durability.

It is light with a soft grip that fits comfortably in your hand and makes it easy to hold. The speed control buttons are easy to reach and operate. And there is no extra safety button so it is easy to operate with only one hand.

The PowerBell design is exclusive to Braun.  Durable stainless steel blades and bell-shaped blending provide faster and finer results. Multiple attachments give you versatility for your blending, chopping, and whisking needs.

It is fast enough for most blending tasks, but a turbo boost button adds extra speed when you need it.

Easy-Click makes changing attachments quick and well, easy, with a single click.

Cons:

  • The design of the splash-proof head interferes with aeration so beating eggs leaves them watery instead of fluffy
  • Early failure complaints do not mention if warranty replacement was requested.
  • Some complaints were about how the new model is not as good as the one from 30 to 40 years ago. Sorry, but nothing is, including me, lol.

  1. My current Braun hand blender has packed in recently and I had it for 10 years, which shows that they are a quality product.
    I like the fact that the materials touching the food is BPA free and it seems like it can blend so much. I will add this to my shopping list – does it come in different colours?

    1. Hi Teresa,

      Thanks for visiting my site and leaving a comment. Unfortunately, the Braun Multiquick Hand Blender only comes in Black. The only Braun immersion blender color available is white and almost all are made for European voltage of 220-240V. I did find one white Braun hand blender, the Braun MR430HC Multiquick Deluxe Hand Blender & Chopper, if you are interested. I have not reviewed this hand blender yet.

  2. Hi ,
    Your write ups are good and perfect, But i think some of the appliances may have complication for use. Would it be out of place to also add how to use some their usage.

  3. The Black & Decker AF was recommended to me from a cook book, it cooks things very well. My problem is that the blower is very loud and the temperature & time indicators are extremely small to read. would not buy one again.
    Appreciate it!
