The Braun MultiQuick-5 possesses many of the best characteristics of a decent immersion blender, most notably its smooth operating motor. Compared with the UTALENT 5-in-1, it is slightly pricier, but this is in accordance with its higher efficiency and more user-friendly features like the ejection buttons and silicone coated handle.

Of all the blenders we’ve tested, the Braun is among the few that offer a good combination of price, power, and capability. Like the UTALENT 5-in-1, it didn’t churn out silky smooth results, but it did pass all its tests with little effort and was much easier and more comfortable to use. 

For the most part, we agree the Braun MultiQuick-5 is a better buy than the UTALENT 5-in-1.
