Black & Decker provided the blender for the giveaway.
Our kitchen has seen nearly every brand of blender: Oster, Ninja, Vitamix, BlendTec, and many, many more. We put this Black & Decker FusionBlade Blender to the test, making smoothies and salsa. While the unit isn’t the most powerful (it’s hard to beat Vitamix and BlendTec), it is the most powerful at its price point, which is approximately $109.00 on Amazon.
The FusionBlade features 1100 watts of power, making blending of frozen chunks of fruit easy work. The 64 ounce blender jar is a good size – I’ve found that larger jars of their competitors are more difficult to clean and don’t blend as well.
This blender’s big selling point is its blade shape and the shape of its jar, which supposedly creates a “vortex” to move the food better. The unit comes with a personal sized to-go jar, which is really convenient for smoothies in the morning. ~Jaden
