I did a lot of research before purchasing this blender and for the price range it was rated the best as well as it has the exterior appeal I was looking for.

A really good blender

I really am a blender person; so much so, that I haven’t yet purchased a food processor. When the blade to my Oster Beehive broke I thought, this is it, I’m getting another blender. I was through with the two speeds and the ear piercing noice (literally). I wanted something that was three or more speeds with pulse and in my price range. I found the Black and Decker which fit the bill. I cook primarely for healthy eating which the blender lends itself to: usually, soups, spreads and moist mistures added to the dry ingrediants in a recipe. I tried out my Brocolli soup which is quick and easy to make. In a large sauce pan, sautee 2 cups of brocolli and 1 small onion chopped in 3 tablespoons of butter and 3 tablespoons of flour. Pour in 2 cups of hot chicken broth and 2 cups of hot milk and stir until the mixture becomes bubbly. Then, pour into blender, 2 cups at a time (wait five minutes to cool) and Mix. I wanted to try something which the blender instructions did not clearly specify and that was to go from a slower speed to a faster one. Did that mean stopping between speeds? I didn’t know, so I gave it a try. I went from Mix to Blend, without stopping the motor, and it worked. The consistancy of the soup was great. The brocolli had some pebble like pieces in the soup (or smaller) but you would expect that. Chopping vegetables in this blender, or any other, for that matter, is not that great. I will use Chop for when I prepare my meatloaf for the liquid portion of the recipe. That method seems to work. All in all, so far so good. As I mentioned, I am a blender person and will use mine daily. So we shall see. As for the die cast metal base: I decided to try something that another reviewer mentioned which I though was brilliant. I used a magnet to see if it would stick on the blender base. It did not. Later, I thought: lets try putting the magnet on my Oster beehive. That has to be metal and has the weight to prove it. Did it stick? It did not. Your guess is as good as mine.

Great Blender for heavy use

This blender pleasantly surprised me with its power and capabilities. I was looking for a blender to use in the interim of saving up for one of the more industrial sized blenders (Vitamix). I make smoothies in this blender every morning and it does a very good job of blending everything… and I have a tendency to load it up! Celery, cucumber, apples with the peels still on, etc.

not bad for the money

For what it costs it’s not bad i had a 10.00 gift card only thing i would be concerned about is the drive gear attachment on the base it looks weak & thin my crush master drive attachment is much bigger & stronger looking . I did put some ice cubes in while making a smoothie with no problem .noise wise not bad less than my crush master base is a cast pot metal but looks good has a glass jar much better than plastic, i like how the jar attaches to the base and the wipe clean buttons i don’t think i would crush to much ice with this blender i like the speed range low to med-high not a real high speed .I had bought a cusinart blender for 80.00 the motor broke loose and fell inside the base after 5 uses was in storage for 1 year warranty gone /threw away. on a scale of 1-10 i would give it a solid 7.But i have only owned this for 1 week .

Good for the price

I didn’t expect a whole lot for the price honestly but it has a metal base and a glass pitcher so that was ultimately the deciding factors for me. I’ve been using it for about a month now, almost daily making smoothies. I use frozen fruit in mine and this has a little difficulty blending it all up. I usually have to stop it a couple times and push the frozen fruit down towards the blades. The consistency of the smoothies could be smoother but they’re not bad. I’d say if you aren’t looking to spend hundreds on a blender, this is a good option.

I like this blender

I got this blender because I was sick of my old one sucking at making frozen smoothies. This one is better but you still have to add the ingredients in small amounts and blend in shifts or it gets stuck a lot in the bottom. The pulse feature is nice, you don’t have to hold the button down it just pulses for you. I made a dressing in this and it did wonderfully! You can’t beat the price and the finish is very nice on the machine.
