The Braun hand blender with chopper dices or minces meat, nuts, cheese, parsley and more. And it's also a Braun mixer, and a Braun whisk blender. Also, this machine can puree soups and sauces.

The stainless steel blades on this Braun immersion blender are super hard and are positioned in a unique way to make blending and chopping faster and easier. Also the Braun MQ5045 blender seals so well you’ll never get splashed.

The motor only has 750w. Bottom line: The AskMjareb Braun hand blender review recommends that you supplement it with a true blender.

Shop For The Best Blender For You

A blender is one of the best small appliances you can have in your kitchen delivering versatility, ease of food preparation and taking up very little kitchen counter real estate. Buying a kitchen blender sounds like a simple task, but with different types and functions available, it takes some consideration to ensure your appliance purchase meets your needs and budget. Blenders perform multiple tasks such as pureeing, mixing, blending, chopping, dicing, grinding, and stirring. Probably the most important factor in picking out the brand for you is the power behind its performance. A low power blender of less than 250 watts will struggle to produce fast results without burning out its motor. We recommend taking on slightly higher priced investment and buying a more powerful machine such as the Magic Bullet NutriBullet NBR-1212R which boasts a 600W motor and has top of the range, sharp stainless steel blades. If you’re looking for heavy duty above all else, the Nutri Ninja BL 642 delivers a high scale 1500W of power that works perfectly on ice crushing and smoothie preparation. Are you limited in kitchen worktop space? You might prefer an immersion blender such as the compact Braun MQ5045, which takes up very little counter space yet multitasks magnificently. Do you want the bonus features? Some extras add convenience and save time. The Nutri Ninja BL 642 Blender Duo for example includes a lid with a removable plug for adding ingredients while blending, and pre-programmed Auto iQ settings, such as “ice crush” or “smoothie maker” modes.

Blenders - Our Experts Advise

Choosing the right blender for you means getting the balance between your wish list of power performance and size. Your pick depends on your specific needs. Here are our pointers to lend you a hand.
If you only blend occasionally
but you still want a blender with the speed and power to blast through ice, nuts, and frozen fruit, you may want to take a look at a few of the great mid-range options available in the 750 watt to 1000 watt blender category such as the Braun MQ5045 Multiquick 5 Vario.
High performance 1500 watt blenders,
such as the high-end Nutri Ninja BL 642 Blender are also amazing ice crushers and juicer blenders. This blender is great if you’re a power user and love to make smoothies, juices, or dips with it every day.
A perfect combination between functionality, size and price
is the Magic Bullet NutriBullet NBR-1212R. The Magic Bullet blender is sleek in design, dishwasher safe and with a decent 600W motor, this is the blender for convenience, easy use and stylishly compact. The Magic Bullet price is a winner too.

Blender Features

  • The size of the jug is important depending on the number of people you’re blending for. The Ninja BL 642 has a jug that holds nearly two liters. If you’re just one person or two, you might want to go for a bullet blender.
  • The power of the motor is important depending on what you need the blender for. The Ninja BL 480 has 1000w of power, enough for almost all tasks.
  • Whilst every blender these days has stainless steel blades, some are stronger than others. The Kenwood SB266 with super-powerful blades for versatile use, has possibly the most powerful steel blades of all.
  • Blenders come with a number of speeds. The Magic Bullet NutriBullet Smoothie Blender has multiple speeds so you can do anything from make smoothies to grind coffee beans.
  • Some blenders are countertop blenders that have a jug and multiple uses. Others are immersion blenders that you put into soups and sauces to make them smooth. Both have excellent uses and the Braun MQ5045 is a combination countertop and immersion blender.
  • Countertop blenders should have suction on the bottom to hold the unit to the countertop.
  • Look for immersion blender machines with a removable blade section for easier cleaning.
