Overall, we think highly of the Braun MultiQuick-5 over the Chefman 6-in-1. 

Although both come with a fairly standard design including a mid-range motor and 2-prong stainless steel blade, the Braun MultiQuick-5 somehow outperformed the competition in the tests of making soups, smoothies, and nut milk. It blended faster, produced smoother consistency, and worked more consistently. In the remaining tests, both shared the same efficiency, but smooth acceleration and comfortable handling make the Braun MultiQuick-5 more satisfying to use. 

The Chefman 6-in-1 is an average immersion blender and not without its flaws. Unlike the competition, it creates quite a bit of suction when reaching the bottom of the beaker. While its buttons are responsive, they’re relatively stiff for those with weaker hands or long nails.

Pros & Cons

  • It can blend frozen fruits, chop vegetables, emulsify sauces, and beat eggs.
  • The motor runs quietly.
  • Its accessory package includes many helpful pieces.
  • The ergonomically-designed handle provides a comfortable grip.
  • Consistent performance with minimal splashing
  • Nearly as efficient as the higher-priced Vitamix 
  • Ergonomically-designed handle ensures a confident grip
  • Doesn’t get hot even under heavy-duty use
  • A generous set of accessories means greater versatility
  • The metal blending shaft and whisk damaged our cookware’s surface.
  • The metal blending shaft and whisk may damage non-stick coatings
