Black & Decker make great products that are typically robust and good value for money.
We’re pleased to report that the Black & Decker Fusion Blade doesn’t break the mould and this blender will be a rather excellent addition to your kitchen. We recommend it.
How Do We Decide What Makes A Great Blender?
We recommend that you check out our Guide to the Best Blenders of 2019.
In that, you’ll learn everything there is to know about picking a blender for your family. Including that we use these four criteria to make our best assessment of blenders:
- The size. Size counts with blenders. They need to be big enough to deliver a worthwhile output and the physical space they fill matters too. You don’t want a new kitchen just to accommodate a blender.
- The speed and power. We’ve found that any blender that puts out more than 500 watts of power can reliably be expected to do everything that you need it to.
- Additional functionality. Blending is good but anything more than that is a bonus. If you can get extra mileage from your blender, so much the better.
- Price. It matters, nobody wants to go broke buying a blender.
How The Black & Decker Fusion Blade Measures Up
The 64 ounce jar that comes as standard with the Fusion Blade is one of the biggest we’ve seen on a blender. That’s good news for those who have a family to cater for. It also comes with a personal sized jar of just 20 ounces for when you’re making something just for one person.
We value that kind of flexibility in our kitchen appliances and we wish that more manufacturers would consider that we don’t always have the same number of people around the table for each meal.
It’s also got a wonderfully powerful 1100-Watt motor which can handle even the toughest tasks. No matter what you throw in the jar, it’s coming out blended.
In our imagination this includes tin cans, but we didn’t try, and we don’t recommend that you do either.
There’s a five-speed control and a pulse function which gives you plenty of control over the finished product from the blender.
The single piece design makes it awesome to clean and the jar is, of course, perfectly safe to throw in the dishwasher.
There’s no extra functionality, which is a little disappointing, but to be fair at this price point what you have is a blender which can go up against even the most expensive and produce excellent results, we’re not sure you could reasonably ask for more than that.
Finals Thoughts on Fusion Blade Review
If you want a powerhouse of a blender for your kitchen and you don’t want to break the bank to get there – the Black and Decker Fusion Blade is one of the best.
Our only minor quibble is the styling of the product and that’s always a matter of personal taste.
Otherwise, you get a lot for very little money.
