The All-Clad has a higher-powered motor so it blends solid foods more evenly than the Muller Ultra-Stick. Because it doesn’t come with extra blending attachments, however, it is unable to emulsify mayonnaise or beat eggs like the competition. 

Design-wise, the Mueller Ultra-Stick is built to the price, with almost all features being of a fairly standard quality. The whole construction is mostly plastic so it is not the best choice if you want something with an elite level of firmness. On the contrary, as a premium model, the All-Clad is styled and equipped for people seeking an upscale and luxurious vibe. Its materials are top-notch and its look is very sleek.

Before you buy, however, note that it is pricey, and you can get more versatility from the Muller Ultra-Stick for less money.

Pros & Cons

  • It’s budget-priced but loaded with accessories 
  • The stainless steel exterior is corrosion resistant 
  • The handle is uniquely-designed with a comfortable grip 
  • Wiping it down is not so difficult
  • The whole blender can be hung on a hook with other kitchen tools
  • 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.
  • The low-quality construction cannot ensure durability 
  • The blade isn’t good at preparing frozen smoothies or pulverizing solid ingredients 
  • The whisk attachment doesn’t provide consistent performance
  • 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.
