In our protein shake test, the BLACK+DECKER FusionBlade yielded a smoother blend with only minute remnants of almonds, while the La Reveuse left a noticeable amount of partially-blended chunks. 

When it came to frozen fruit smoothies, the tables turned in favor of the La Reveuse. It not only outpaced the BLACK+DECKER FusionBlade by a solid 20 seconds, but its end product also had a more appealing, ice-cream-like texture. The La Reveuse further solidified its credentials in processing leafy vegetables with only minimal pulp residue remaining. The BLACK+DECKER, on the other hand, resulted in a more substantial amount of coarse pulp. When tested for more demanding tasks such as ice crushing, unfortunately, neither blender excelled. 

As for build quality, the La Reveuse and the BLACK+DECKER FusionBlade are on equal footing, both offering comparable durability and feel, so this aspect should not be a significant deciding factor. Ultimately, the choice between these two blenders boils down to your personal preferences and the specific requirements of your blending tasks.
