Product Description

Braun MR5550CA Multiquick Professional Hand Blender, White


Braun's Multiquick Professional improves on an appliance that's already highly convenient. With a 400-watt motor, this updated hand blender has increased power for faster and better results. A dial on the top of the handle allows you to select from five different blending speeds, giving you more control over the consistency of your purées. A turbo button on the front of the handle lets you immediately switch up to the highest blending speed. The hand-blender attachment has a unique blade that offers smoother and more even blending, making it ideal for puréeing fruit shakes, soups, or homemade baby food. In addition, the hand-blender shaft has an innovative antisplashing design that prevents food from splattering on your kitchen walls during blending. Other included attachments are a minifood processor with an antislip bottom for chopping foods such as herbs, onions, or meats and a whisk for whipping egg whites, cake batter, or cream. The set also comes with a tall lidded beaker that is a convenient shape for blending smoothies and for storing leftovers, and a wall holder for storage. The hand blender, chopper, whisk, and beaker are all dishwasher-safe, and the unit is covered by a one-year limited warranty. --Cristina Vaamonde

If you are looking for a decent hand blender at a good price, then this unit's for you. This product's hits are its powerful 400 Watt motor and a sturdy design that makes light work of most chopping, grinding, mixing, and puree'ing chores. I think the only thing it won't do is turn small stones into sand. Also, you gotta love the variable speed and the no-splash head.
However, no good review would be complete without highlighting how this unique product could have been made even better:
1. A longer, stainless steel shaft would have been preferable over the plastic one. Firstly, the stainless steel would have given it the LOOK of a heavy-duty, professional mixer, and second it would make clean-up good deal easier.
2. The business end of the device is WAY TOO LARGE and you will be hard pressed to find any glasses or cups in your cupboards that this device will fit inside of. What this means is an extra bowl (or supplied cup) to wash anytime you want to mix up some salad dressing, juice or a milkshake.
3. The unit only comes with one blade. Many other manufacturers provide for switchable blades/attachments that can crush ice, froth milk, whip cream, and aerate your sauces and cake/pancake mixes. Braun offers no products with this features. For shame.
Apparently, Braun does make another model (MR 5000??) that boasts 500 watts of variable-speed power with a stainless steel shaft, a head small enough to fit in most ordinary mugs and glasses, and a set of accessories to die for, but for some reason they do not market this model in North America. BIG MISTAKE.
Overall, this unit is a good buy and if you can overlook the above unfortunate and obvious oversights by Braun, I'd recommend this product for anyone looking for a hand blender or mixer.

I have been using an older version of this Braun for more than a year, and I can say that it is the best money I have ever spent on a kitchen item, and perhaps the best under [$$$] I have ever spent on anything. I have all the kitchen tools, most professional level, and all the garage tools that anyone could want, but for my money this is the real deal. Spend the extra for this professional model and you will not be disappointed. The extra power is well worth the extra $$. It is amazing. Clean up is so quick and easy and it does about everything. I even started using mine as a juicer when my old juicer broke. In a tall container, throw in some chopped carrots, a banana, protein powder, and some Silk soy milk, and 2 mins. later you have ecstasy. I have done away with my blender, chopper, etc. And for whipping, I no longer create the big clean up mess with my KitchenAid. I even take this item with me when I travel since I wind up cooking wherever I visit. That is how much I love this product. I have no affiliation with the company, by the way.

Braun, who else!... I recently graduated from the basic Braun stick blender (which still works perfectly and looks like new after 2+ years of daily use) to this technological gem. Reason: I like to add ice cubes to smoothies and low cal frozen desserts, and I didn't want to burn out my old unit. Also, the whisk attachment looked tempting for smaller batches of egg whites or anything whipped. The unit also comes with a handy chopper for smaller jobs, but I haven't used that since I already own a similar product (which probably will burn out looooong before the Braun will even get warm...) Honestly, I didn't expect to actually notice a difference between 200 and 400W, so I was surprised when my first Slim Fast drink turned out so creamy that I nearly had to eat it with a spoon. My KitchenAid UltraPower Blender does a nice job on crushing ice, but this handy dandy stick blender processes ice cubes in a smoothie to a lovely near grit-free consistency in 20 seconds flat. I don't peel apples and the like, the stick blender processes the quartered and seeded fruit so smoothly that mere color flecks of the peel remain. It doesn't matter if you're making one, two, or 10 smoothies at once: it's a snap with this stick blender even if you have to make several batches, since each only takes about 20 seconds to make. Cleanup is a breeze: A drop of dish detergent into the beaker, hot water, immerse the blender, and WHIRL!, rinse, and done. No taking apart hefty blender containers and washing rubber gaskets, blade assembly, and lid parts. This item is a serious tool that I use at least once every single day. If I had to choose among all my beloved kitchen gadgets and power tools, I'd choose this stick blender. Why? Because it is so versatile, so easy and fun to use, and simply so darn useful!!!Read more ›

One day, I'm browsing kitchen gadgets on amazon.com (as I am wont to do), and I see this hand blender. I think to myself "Gee, this looks pretty handy, but would I ever have use for one?" In another screen, I'm talking to a friend so I ask her if she has one. She says yes, and it is the best thing since sliced bread. She tells me there are some models you can't control the speed on and some you can and the variable speed one is the one you want. So I bought this one.
WELL. I don't know if there are enough adjectives in the dictionary to describe how much I love this thing. With the stick blender part, I make amazing strawberry-banana smoothies or rich chocolate shakes in a minute. With the chopper attachment, I made delicious salsa in 30 seconds or chop bell pepper for my quesadillas in less time than that.
I love quesadillas but I hate chopping the onions and peppers I put in them. I love fresh salsa but I hate chopping tomatoes and onions to put in it. This product has become my lifeline to quick quesadillas and salsa. :)
Don't think that just because your regular blender is on the shelf collecting dust, you won't use a hand blender. Trust me, my regular blender hadn't been used in YEARS, but I'm still finding new uses for this stick blender!
