something seems wrong
Hello all. My daughter and I purchased the Braun MultiQuick 3 MQ3045 only to find one of the pieces seems a little loose in the small white lid. taking it back to the Good Guys, where my daughter, with one of the sales assistants, checked the display on the shelf to find the same thing. so was it meant to be that way or was it a fault in the manufacturing in the Braun factory? THere is another part like this one ( but it isnt loose. ) i think it shouldnt be like this the first pic shows the piece that is loose. the second is the large beaker lid where it's not loose and the third fits with the first.
Purchased in March 2020 at The Good Guys for $99.00.
Seemed good at first but...
We've had this Braun stick blender for a bit less than 12 months. In its defence, the machine itself is still operational, which is better than our 2nd Bosch ErgoMix, which I loved but which liked to burn out around the end of warranty time. The main problem with this Braun is the smaller container - the part where the blade connects to the container has grown visible mould, which I can also smell clearly and there is no way to clean it out. It's ready for the rubbish now. Also the main stick blender (the metal one) I made the mistake of t...rying to blend onion into mince to make meat patties. Meat sinew got stuck around the blade - also no way of getting it out. I guess that was my fault though. The milkshake / smoothie part is fine still luckily otherwise there would be nothing much left to use. The part of the main machine where it connects to the containers also has, I think it was pumpkin soup that got stuck up in there and it's very hard to clean as well. At this point, I kind of miss my old Bosch ErgoMix but I'm still looking for a sticker blender that is built to last longer than a year or two... Any ideas?
Purchased in July 2018.
Works but flawed design
This does what a stick blender should do and a bit more so I'm glad for that.
There is a design flaw in that the contents of what you're blending can overflow into the gear itself and there's no way of washing it out - you have to painstakingly pick it out with a fine toothpick.
So maybe I've loaded it with a bit too much and should use the bigger jug. Funny thing is that the bigger jug comes with a spout which cannot be completely covered by the lid. Whatever I'm blending sprays out of that spout opening at high pressure. Lol OK well..
It is what it is. Not a well thought out design but does the job if you're willing to clean up after use.

Handy to use
Handy to use, easy to clean. Happy with its operation.
Only problem I faced was when the blade that goes in the jar went bad, it is hard to find a replacement. I tried to get one, but ended up buying a new one all together.
Chopper - not very good
I bought this, mainly for the two chopper bowls. However, however instead of chopping, it purees most vegetables. Not very happy.
Have called Braun, but were no help. Do not buy it, if you wish to mainly use it for chopping.
Not recommended for chopping. The whisk and puree wand work well.
It was good
After purchasing the mixer it started off good. Used the big jug and after one use it has a big chunk missing out of it, and a huge crack. It wasn't bumped, knocked or dropped. Very disappointed. Brought it to purée baby food. Hopefully I can track down a replacement
Good for soups!
Easy to use hand blender that lasts! Does not splash and is easy to handle. Great for soups and quick smoothies!
Downside is that the plastic container stains, as does the stick itself, when pureeing colored foods such as carrots or strawberries. Might be better to purchase stainless steel next time to solve problem. I find a little bicarbonate soda mix with water to form paste to remove is good.
Easily stain on plastic
