Hamilton Beach 59765 Immersion vs Braun MultiQuick 5 Immersion

Overall Verdict

The Braun MultiQuick 5 simply looks better, and indeed, it’s tricky to find any blender as good for the same money. At under $100, it is built to standard with a rich set of accessories. It also has more user-friendly features than any other mid-range hand blender, especially the Hamilton Beach 59765. These include the silicon-coated handle, the ejection buttons, and the speed controls.

In terms of performance, we found the Braun MultiQuick 5 could produce far more even results than the Hamilton Beach 59765. It even performed as well as our best-to-buy immersion blender — the Vitamix 5-speed.
