Braun MultiQuick Professional Handheld Blender: Product Review

There are some blenders that will give you subpar blending power, while there are others that have been designed for even the most professional cook to use. Even though you may not be a professional chef, you can still benefit from having a professional-quality blender, especially when making smoothies and other frozen beverages.

The Braun MultiQuick Professional Handheld Blender, Model: MR5550 will give you the highest level of blending technology as well as a sophisticated design. With this blender, you can make difficult drinks and foods, and since it is a handheld blender, it can be easily stored and taken with you on trips.

Main Product Features

This unique Braun MultiQuick Handheld Blender will provide you with all the features you need to create delicious frozen drinks. However, this handheld blender does much more than helps create drinks, it can professionally mix any ingredients, which will make it your favorite tool in the kitchen.

With the Turbo Function, you will be able to not only blend drinks, but it is able to chop hard ingredients as well a puree foods. This handheld blender features a total power of 400-Watts and 5-different speed levels, which is much faster than most other handheld blender. However, my favorite feature that comes with this blender is the various attachments that you can use with it.

The Big Chopper attachment is what you will mainly use when you are preparing a smoothie or other frozen drink. All you do is add this attachment to the blender, and you will be able to chop ice without a problem. The Big Chopper is also a great tool to use when you want to process foods, which means this blender has more uses than the traditional model.

One of my favorite features of this blender is how it has been designed. With many handheld blenders, messes are commonplace. Because of this, many consumers decide not to purchase a handheld blender; however, this Braun handheld blender has a unique contoured design that will contain the liquids it is mixing, so that they stay in their container and not on your counter.

The anti-splash design is a feature that everyone will enjoy, but not every handheld blender comes with this design.

Product Price

This Braun MultiQuick Professional Handheld Blender can be purchased online and through select retail stores. Expect to find an average price of $130 for this advanced blender. – here you will find other blenders and devices for health.

Spill the Beans After Dark: Watermelon Margaritas

So how about some Watermelon Margaritas to help you forget that performance by Miley Cyrus at the VMAs the other night? I didn’t see it live, as I stopped watching the year Kanye took the mic from Taylor Swift, but upon waking on Monday morning with all the talk of twerking, I looked it up. And let me tell you what, I am sorry I did, because I can’t unsee it. Wow. Just … wow.

Watermelon Margarita

Watermelon Margarita


  • 3 1/2 cups cubed or balled watermelon
  • 1/2 cup tequila
  • 3 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon orange liqueur
  • Lime wedges (garnish)
  • More watermelon balls (garnish)
  • Sugar (for the rim)

Here you will find the best blenders for frozen drinks.

Rim chilled glasses with a lime wedge and then sugar. Next, combine watermelon, tequila, lime juice and orange liqueur in a blender with ice. Blend until smooth and then start pouring! Garnish with lime wedges or melon balls, if desired. Makes about 6 servings, so have some friends over and make it a party, because Margaritaville is a much nicer place to be than the VMAs. Just sayin’.
