Design aside, these two personal blenders share standard features and have minor differences in their testing results.  The KOIOS 850W Bullet performed faster than the BLACK+DECKER FusionBlade in most of the tests, but its outcomes weren’t quite as smooth, while neither blender was capable of crushing ice cubes.

Ultimately, choosing between the two will likely become which one is considered more physically attractive. Another deciding factor may be the KOIOS’s accessory package which, while it doesn’t play a big part in the blender’s efficiency, will allow for a wider variety of textures in your kitchen food preparation.
