Broke twice in less two years
Last November 2012 we bought this Braun Multiquick 5 MR530. Despite its robust aspect, one year after buying it the motor stopped working. Technical service replaced the entire motor block. Now a little bit before the warranty is over the mixer part broke: the plastic piece in the upper part of the blending wand and that is attached by "click" system to the motor block cracked. No bad use, any accident, just normal use. Now technical service provided by Delonghi in Spain says that the blending wand is an accessory and not included in the warran...ty. A new one costs almost half of the price of the whole product. Very disappointed! On the other hand my old Braun Vario 350 Watt bought about 15 years ago still working!!! Conclusion: good example of programmed obsolescence...
Lasted 12 yrs
We were given this braun multi blender as a wedding present.
I am just looking to replace it and thought I'd write a review.
We're looking at getting the MQ775 Braun to replace this one, the only difference is that the new one will grate cheese and also slice fruit and vege in the 'food processor' part.
We've been very happy with Braun and the only parts that have let us down are the rubber seals and the plastic is starting to crack.
We have not been kind to this blender, using it to crush ice, putting it in the dishwasher and using it as a...
Poor quality motor, unfortunate for what is known as good brand!
we bought this because we thought this would last longer than 5 years (as with most electrical appliances these days you can get lucky if it stays intact after the 2years warranty period is gone!). One day, out of the blue, the motor makes whirring sounds but the blades is not moving at all. Tried to move it to the bigger container as I thought there was something wrong in the small one, but still not working, so I have to admit in the end that it gave way after using it daily for 1,5 years. Luckily it was still under warranty (just) and we jus...t return it to Myer (great & easy customer service), then get a new one as replacement. I have been using it only for minor quantity since there is just the two of us, so for its price I thought it can easily handle small household cooking activities. The other reviewer said theirs were made in germany, mine said "made in Poland", either way doesn't make a difference in the quality doesn't it? If you thinking about the multiquick 5, might look at other brand if you're considering buying it. when working it is very helpfull in cutting down time in kitchen! poor quality motor for an expensive hand blender, blade design makes food can stuck in between the inner plastic tube
Broke down twice
After less than a year of use my Braun Multiquick broke down. The engine lost it's power and the blades stopped turning. I sent it away to be repaired and was sent a new one promptly. About six months later the same thing happened. I was very disappointed and though my blender is still under warranty I am in the market for a new blender, one that will last.
When it was working it blended really well and easily. Was easy to clean. Great customer service.
The motor didn't last with constant use. It lost power after less than a year.
Although German - poor quality
After comparing several blenders, we finally decided to go for the expensive Braun product which not only had the most and useful attachments but also made the best impression regarding durability and handling. Although the handling of the 'Turbo' button (for whipping cream) was weird, we weren't disappointed. The chopping, whipping and mashing went smooth as never before.
But after aa bit more than two years, it slowly stopped working. At first the 'Turbo' button showed no effect and after a while the whole motor stopped working - of course ...
