Braun MX2050 PowerMax Jug Blender

Customer Reviews

Also, the jug is made of glass and very easy to clean.

One of the teeth of the white plastic part that fits on the bottom of the blade assembly (drive under blade assembly) broke off.
Diane Cooper
I make a lot of smoothies and protein shakes, and found other blenders wouldn't crush the ice or frozen fruit well at all.

I bought this blender on the recommendation of Cook's Illustrated - I wanted a blender that could power through ice for mixed drinks! And... at first, I thought it was about worthless... I would put ice and mixers in and blend and it seemed like it took forever and ever and still had chunks of ice. I tried a few different times and it was always "just okay." So, it sat in the cupboard and I gave up on it.

Then I decided I wanted to make fruit smoothies (couldn't afford the $5 a pop at the local joint) so I drug out the blender, but I didn't have high hopes. And, unsurprisingly, it didn't do well on that, either. I couldn't understand - I had liquid and frozen fruit - and it kept getting bogged down - I had to stick a wooden spoon it and try to break it up to get it to blend. Then it would only blend for 5 seconds, and you could hear the blades just spinning, but nothing was happening. I was ready to chuck the blender and get the KitchenAid a friend has and raves about...but I didn't want to spend $100. So I gave it one more shot - and finally figured out the secret.

[In my experience] YOU ABSOLUTELY CANNOT PUT ALL YOUR INGREDIENTS IN AT THE SAME TIME. Meaning, to make my smoothie, I put in all the liquid and a small handful of frozen blueberries - then blend. When that is smooth, then I add a frozen strawberry or two - then blend. Then another strawberry or two - then blend... until I have the desired smoothie thickness.

I have yet to try this method with pure ice for frozen margaritas, but I imagine it would work the same way. But even if it didn't work, I drink smoothies way more than I drink frozen margaritas, so for the time being, this is the perfect blender for me, as it has paid for itself just in the month I have been making smoothies!

The order was handled by Amazon with their usual excellent speed and efficiency, but my mistake was believing the reviews saying that this is a relatively quiet, high efficiency blender. When it came, I left the blender in the box for a couple of weeks while the kitchen wiring was being finished. We don't drink, so we don't make crushed ice drinks, and we never crush ice in a blender. We do make milk & fresh-fruit smoothies, without ice, several times a week. It quickly became clear that this blender is not up to the job. Despite the quality name, the basic moving parts are flimsy. It vibrates because the gears are made of plastic/nylon and don't mesh properly. The size and thickness of the plastic gasket has been cheapened to the point that it doesn't always stay in place as the bottom of the jar is tightened, and sometimes twists in a way that leaves half of the area at the bottom of the blender jar open and dripping milk all over the counter. Maybe all of this is just Braun's way of telling us that you don't get a high quality blender for $48. When I tried to return it, I discovered that Amazon won't accept a return after 30 days. It is true we'd owned it for more than 30 days, but we'd used it for a little over a week at that time. And after a lot of annoyance, it's time to look for another blender. I have been using our ultra-noisy but dependable old Oster in the meantime.

When I finally decided I needed a blender instead of just using my food processor for pureeing, I chose this one because of the top ratings given it by America's Test Kitchen. Obviously, they never tried mixing waffle batter in it and I find it hard to believe they managed to blend frozen fruit. There isn't enough suction to the bottom of the container to blend anything thick at any speed -- the food just sits there and you constantly have to scrape it down. It does a fine job on raw berries, for instance, but frozen or partially frozen ones just sit there. It can't handle batter at all. Decidedly unimpressive. On the plus side, it is a really attractive unit and is very easy to disassemble, clean and put back together. This is probably a fine unit for someone who just wants to blend juices or puree cooked soups, but I find it hard to believe this is supposed to be one of the best on the market.

Verified Purchase
I bought this blender by mistake, but then was delightfully surprised. I wanted a powerful blender to crush ice and our old one was more like "scratching" ice cubes than "crushing" them. After reading a few reviews on amazon I decided this is the one to go, then hastily placed order. Minutes later, keeping reading more reviews, I started to see complaints about this blender's limited capability in crushing ice, then I thought I made a mistake and tried to cancel the order. Too late, with prime shipping option, the order was instantly placed into processing stage and no cancellation was possible to my chagrin.

Today I received the package, pulled out the blender, and instantly noticed one review complaint I had read about this blender was untrue - that the top removable cap can easily pop off during blending. No way! If you twist the cap, it actually LOCKS into place, not just sits there waiting to pop off. Anyhow, I added a handful of ice cubes, and turned on the blender at speed #1. Wow, it crushed the ice cubes into white powder with no relent. That's the kind of blender I'm looking for to make margarita and other iced drinks. I regretted the purchase only two days ago but now it turned out to be a total delightful surprise.
