Our review of the Braun Multiquick 9
Braun’s Multiquick 9 owes its nomination of “Most Powerful Blender” to a 1200W power motor that guarantees up to 6 times better results and 60% more effective performance compared to previous models. To do this, this hand blender uses the Acrive Blade technologyand, to minimize effort when processing ingredients. They are not missing either new features and lots of accessories to adapt the device to our culinary style.
But let’s start in order.
The Braun Multiquick 9 with the immersion attachment
As per tradition, Braun has used premium materials in the creation of this elegant hand blender. The central body, where the engine is located, boasts a elegant and minimal design where the black of the plastic parts and the silver of the metal fit together perfectly. Small details are decorated with a fluorescent green which is also recalled by some accessories, also mainly in black, white and metal.
In the upper part of the main body we have the SmartSpeed start button that increases or decreases speed depending on the pressure and two other buttons on the hand blender head. Here we will be able to exploit with one click la tecnologia imode (which we’ll cover later), activate some modes, and activate the minimiper lock for safety. At the base of the body we find the EasyClick Plus assembly system which allows practically immediate installation of each accessory.

Technology and functions
Going into the tech details, as anticipated, this hand blender boasts a efficient 1200 W motor, the most powerful of the Braun Multiquick series. This power, combined with the tecnologia Active PowerDrive, translates into greater efficiency and therefore a decrease in the time required for the preparation of the ingredients. Added to this is the ActiveBlade technology, the great innovation of this model. ActiveBlade incorporates a rod that swings the blade vertically while it chops the ingredients so as to guarantee a mixing result twice as high as half the time.
The control given by the device with the is interesting tecnologia imode. With the simple push of a button, placed on the hand blender body, we can change the mixing speed in three different speeds. To these is added the Pulse mode which automatically cuts the ingredients without shredding them completelyideal for vegetable stews or similar.
Our test of the cook with the Braun Multiquick 9
To carry out this review we tested the Braun Multiquick 9 for about 2 weeks during which he became our Sous-chef in the kitchen.
The first thing we feel we have to tell you is theabsolute ease of use of this minimiper. The instruction booklet inside the package is really superfluous because you just need to install the necessary accessory and start cooking. The main doubts will concern the two buttons placed on the head of the main body of the minimiper which manage the cut release function (for greater safety towards, for example, children) and the imode.
When preparing the ingredients, the MultiQuick 9 has performed very well and in addition to a new power and advanced technology that we have seen, it has maintained the characteristics of the previous models as the always appreciated design SpashControl to avoid splashes everywhere.
The immersion miniper tool is certainly the most interesting and the one we have used the most. This brilliant MultiQuick 9 gave us the best homemade mayonnaise we could ever ask forhighly appreciated for this the 600ml BPA-free plastic tumbler. The whisk tool instead allowed us both to make an eggnog in just a few minutes and a mouth-watering chantilly cream. In general, all accessories have the same build quality and efficiency as the main tool, in perfect Braun style.
And the flaws?
Arrived at this point of the review, this Minipimer MultiQuick 9 MQ 9187XLI sounds all too perfect to be true. Obviously, as in any device, there are defects but fortunately we found them extremely marginal compared to the final result.
Between these, we did notice excessive weight when attached to some accessories. With the hand blender, having an entirely metal body, the weight increases a lot (about 2kg) and in the long run it can be heavy. It must be said, however, that the times of use are really optimized, it will be difficult to get to the point of getting tired.
The Braun Multiquick 9 review chopped up
This Braun Multiquick 9 really surprised us. Efficiency, ease of use and speed make it truly the perfect helper in the kitchen. The large number of accessories adapt to any culinary style and even if many of these will not be part of daily use, they will always remain available for any eventuality. As happened to us, they could also inspire you to try new dishes now that you have the right tools at your disposal.
This is precisely the power of the Braun Multiquick 9, the extreme versatility and adaptability to all ways of cooking.
