Are the plastic components BPA free?
Yes...all plastic parts that come in contact with food are BPA free :)
Just purchased this kit and about to wash it. To me it looks like there is something missing on the 350ml chopper container where the white drive piece goes through the top black lid. It’s very loose and looks like it would just be plastic on plastic so won’t last long. Are the all the same?
I noticed the same thing recently. And there is a little bit of wear, but nothing significant. I've had my blender for a year now and there isn't any leaking through here. But in short, yes, they are the same.Thanks Kelly RIt's supposed to be loose. However, when you attach the drive motor, the white drive shaft of the chopper is held in place firmly and works fine. It's not a fault or an indication of something missing. It works fine for me. For example, I recently chopped whole macadamia nuts (shelled of course!) with no problem.
Can I blend frozen fruit, like Banana and berries, for smoothies and sorbet? Does it have a kneading hook? The later because the Braun site says yes, but I can't find any other reference. Thanks, Sandie
Hi Sandie. Thanks for your question. Regarding frozen fruit, I can't see anything in the instruction booklet about this. Under 'chopper accessory', the instructions say it is 'perfectly suited for chopping meat, hard cheese, ...... and nuts'. Based on that, it seems that frozen fruit should be ok but it doesn't specifically say so. It does say not to use the accessory on 'extremely hard foods such as unshelled nuts, ice cubes, coffee beans, grains, or hard spices such as nutmeg'. I would assume from all of this that if the frozen fruit is softer than ice cubes, it should be ok to chop, particularly if it is mixed with liquids such as milk or yoghurt. Regarding the kneading hook, yes, there is one. It is like a chopping blade but made of plastic. According to the instructions, the kneading hook is 'ideal for kneading different dough types such as yeast or pastry'. Cheers, Jon
Wondering,how do I suppose to safety keeping all the blades,which belongs to the chopper? Why it doesn't have a some sort of a keeping tray or holder?!!!
It doesn’t, but I leave it in the drawer and they all fit fine.
Can I mash potatoes with the Braun MultiQuick 9 MQ 9087X?
Hi Lori, Yes you can. There is an attachment for mashing. It is also designed for splatter proof. You can also simply use the just the stick for mashing, I do when I make potato, bacon soup. In the pot just blitz. If just mashing vegetables use the attachment. Hope I was helpful. Regards Maria
