Overall Design Scoring

Everything about the All-Clad 10942212300 is expensive, from packaging to engineering and design. There are some alternatives that share many of the same qualities, such as the Vitamix 5-speed, but this All-Clad does look slightly tougher than the competition.

The Braun MultuQuick-5 has a friendly-user design. Its 300-watt motor powers a removable blending shaft quite efficiently . Depending on the recipe, the motor can also work with the whisk attachment, which is not something you get with most mid-range household blenders. 

It, however, cannot run continuously more than a batch. To avoid being damaged, make sure you let your machine cool down for a couple of minutes between its operations.

Overall Usability Scoring

The blender’s design is straightforward but it’s not as comfortable to use as it should be. Luckily, cleaning is a simple process since the blending wand is dishwasher safe. We still recommend hand washing, though, to keep it looking new for longer.

This blender is designed to be extremely comfortable to hold and use, even with just one hand. Not only that, but it also doesn’t demand us to use too much elbow grease on food tailings when it comes to cleaning.

Overall Performance Scoring

We had high hopes for the All-Clad 10942212300 in terms of performance, but it didn't quite hit the mark. This isn't to label it a subpar blender; it can indeed handle specific tasks very well. However, there are numerous other all-around blenders available at a significantly lower price point that might offer more value.

After a course of testing, we’re confident to conclude that the Braun MultiQuick 5 is the choice for most people, especially those who want the best bang for their buck. It’s the best mid-range blender that has more than enough power for your daily blending tasks, from frozen fruit smoothies to any recipe involving leafy greens. And with the handy whisk attachment, it saves you from buying a hand mixer for beating egg-whites and emulsifying sauces.

Pros & Cons

  • The heavy-duty motor is perfect for frozen fruit smoothies.
  • High-quality construction ensures great durability.
  • The handle is designed to be easy to grip and maneuver.
  • Consistent performance with minimal splashing
  • Nearly as efficient as the higher-priced Vitamix 
  • Ergonomically-designed handle ensures a confident grip
  • Doesn’t get hot even under heavy-duty use
  • A generous set of accessories means greater versatility
  • The price is upscale but there is not much in return for its efficiency. 
  • It's just average at making pureéd soup.
  • Uneven acceleration causes an unpleasant blending experience. 
  • The hefty weight may cause hand fatigue.
  • The metal blending shaft and whisk may damage non-stick coatings


The Braun MultiQuick-5 is a well-rounded immersion blender that excels at a wide range of tasks. It is designed simply and sports a mid-range motor but was still powerful enough to pass all of our tests. We don't have many complaints about this blender, apart from its relatively stiff buttons. For our money, the Braun MultiQuick-5 is the best of the bunch.

The All-Clad’s materials are top-notch, but there isn’t much in return for its efficiency. In our hands-on testing, this blender came behind the competitor in every aspect of its performance despite the higher-powered motor. It wasn’t even able to whip egg white or make mayonnaise. For the most part, we agree this blender offers a less compelling value than the Braun MultiQuick-5, especially considering its premium price.
