Awful build quality, incomplete inventory.
We bought this via GoodGuys click and collect via eBay.
We'd had it a few days when I went to make some mayonnaise and unpacked the box. Discovered that it had been sold to us without the whisk attachment.
Two months ago, I went to use the hand blender to blend some pumpkin soup. It should be an easy task for a 750w motor. The plastic fitting snapped so that stopped working.
Last week I went to blend Basil with Olive Oil in the contained chopper. Again the plastic warped. I have owned a number of blenders and I am experienced in the kitchen so it is not user error.
I will never guy anything from Braun again and also not from the amusingly named GoodGuys.
The stick blender shaft for the braun turbo cannot be cleaned inside and since there is a gap between the blade shaft and the head of the stick in this model, food can enter. Despite thorough washing the food collects, cannot be seen, and cannot be washed out. My son visits on his way to work every day to have a free range egg flip for which he used our new braun turbo stick blender. The routine was to stand it in water immediately to stop food drying on before washing it after he left. After a couple of weeks, to my horror when tracing down a...foul smell in my appliance cupboard, i found maggots crawling out of the stick head! I had used an older model braun since the late 1990s to prepare my invalid father's food and had no problems maintaining hygiene with that model. I could and did inspect the inside of the blender stick and reach to the bottom to clean it. This is impossible in the turbo model. After soaking all day in domestos on 4 separate occasions it still smells like a dead cow beside the road. We have lost months of use, and the wire whisk head is pretty useless and just sprays food everywhere.
Great multi-purpose kitchen appliance
I've had this product for a few years and it's fantastic. You can change from a small mixing bowl to a much larger one depending on the quantity of food you are processing. There is a whisk attachment and you can also turn it into a stick blender. It has become one of the most useful appliances in my kitchen. Easy to clean and assemble too.
