Braun Multiquick 7 Hand Blender vs Vitamix Immersion Blender

Overall Verdict

The Vitamix shines exceptionally in most blending tasks, whether it’s creating velvety frozen fruit smoothies, rich nut milk, or smoothly pureed hot soups. Its robust 625-watt motor and 4-pronged stainless steel blades ensures that even the most demanding tasks are handled with ease and perfection. 

While the Braun Multiquick-7 also performs well across these tasks, it doesn’t quite match the Vitamix’s level of smoothness, particularly in heavy-duty blending. However, the Braun’s inclusion of a whisk attachment adds versatility that the Vitamix lacks, making it more suited for tasks that require a gentle touch, such as creating airy whipped cream or beaten egg whites.

In terms of overall build quality, the Vitamix slightly edges out with its luxury vibe and professional-grade construction, though the Braun Multiquick-7 is also notable for its appealing aesthetic and well-constructed design. 

For those seeking top-tier blending performance and can afford its hefty price tag, the Vitamix is an outstanding choice. Alternatively, the Braun Multiquick-7 offers a cost-effective and versatile option, providing a near-premium experience at a more accessible price point.
