As you’d expect with a high-powered personal blender, the NutriBullet 900-Watt Pro provided us with a testing smoothie that couldn’t be smoother. And the same was true for other tests, from making protein shakes, to crushing ice and extracting nutrients from leafy veggies.

At around $30, the BLACK+DECKER FusionBlade is quite a performance bargain. The lack of power was evident in the blending time in every test, but the results it churned out were nearly as smooth , except for the crushed ice.

There aren’t many similarities between the two in terms of overall design. The NutriBullet 900-Watt Pro is a no-fuss personal blender with a larger base and more well-built components. Whereas the BLACK+DECKER FusionBlade looks sportier and more compact, but it’s not as sturdy nor as pleasant to use.  

In conclusion, the NutriBullet 900-Watt Pro is a better personal blender and the BLACK+DECKER FusionBlade is quite a good value in its market segment. Given the discrepancy in their price, the choice between the two may be more about your budget than any other factor.
