Product Overview

The Braun MQ505 Multiquick Hand Blender is a reasonably priced immersion or hand blender with a powerful 350 Watt motor.

It is light and its soft grip makes it easy to hold. Speed buttons are easy to reach and push, and with no extra safety button, it is easy to operate with one hand.

Its two speeds are more than enough for most blending tasks, but a turbo boost button adds extra power when you need it.

The Braun MQ505 Multiquick Hand Blender has a uniquely designed bell-shaped stainless steel blending shaft. This results in smoother smoothies and less risk of splatter.

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



Pros:

  • Reasonable cost
  • Lightweight and ergonomic handle
  • Quieter than most other hand blenders
  • Stainless steel blending shaft
  • Specially designed “splash-proof” head
  • 350-watt motor
  • 2-speed plus turbo boost
  • All parts in contact with food are BPA-free

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.
