Home and Living spends a lot of time in the kitchen preparing a variety of foods on all the appliance we receive to test. Since we love to make smoothies, we were happy to look over the new Black & Decker FusionBlade Blender.

There are several features we are keen on:

  • The 12-speed blender has button selections to do everything from chopping, to mixing, pureeing and even making short work of ice
  • A pulse button that allows you to better control the contents
  • The blending jar is a good size—six cups
  • The lid is a 1 ounce measuring cup
  • 550 watts so it muscles through

Since springtime and Memorial Day and after brings lots of celebrations, this would be a great gift for graduates who are starting their own lives, moving into an apartment or home. It would be a nice surprise for a wedding gift—the perfect appliance for newlyweds. If you need a birthday gift for someone who lives on smoothies, this is your best buy. And finally, think about one for Father’s Day, so he mix drinks for guests or plans to make a lot of milkshakes.
