Pros Powerful, low cost, sturdy, and easy to clean.
Cons Unplug it when not in use, low profile buttons cause unit to false start.
Recommended it? Yes

This is a great power blender that really gets the job done, I own two of them, one in my garage and one in the kitchen, I have had them for years without any issues.  
  
Some people claim that the unit has turned itself on, I normally leave it unplugged so I can not say I... Read full review »

Pros Good Value, Quality Construction, Great Design
Cons Heavy
Recommended it? Yes

Wonderful blender! Very heavy duty! Works wonders on everything even crushing ice! The blender pitcher is made of glass instead of plastic which is a big plus! I love how durable it is and it is so easy to clean! Just take the pitcher apart and place in the dishwasher! Awesome gift to give someone!! Read full review »

Cons the glass jar is a tad heavy
Recommended it? Yes

I bought this B&D blender from Target last Christmas with a Target gift card and have been very happy with the purchase. I have used this everyday making smoothies and milk shakes for the family. The motor delivers a whopping 550 watts of power which purees fruits efficiently. I also use the ice... Read full review »

Complete garbage - might as well burn your money

Pros glass jar (not plastic), and most of its materials are recyclable
Cons leaks at the seal; pour design causes irritating drips; doesn't mix thick stuff;...
Recommended it? No

I have owned this blender for 2 years, and it's complete garbage (with the exception of the jar being glass & not plastic). I thought I'd turn in my 60 year old beehive blender (that still rocked, but the man thought it was time to pack it in), and buy a sleek new one. One must admit that the... Read full review »

Why are they still allowed to sell this fire hazard?

bysnowmanlover Feb 9, 2007

Pros None
Cons Fire hazard. Turns on by itself.
Recommended it? No

You can imagine my horror when I unlocked my door and the Black & Decker 5 speed ProBlend blender was running full power with no one home! It will not turn off. I unplugged it and if I plug it in again it is still running. Dangerous, fire hazard. Please, if you own this already, ditch it or leave... Read full review »

Pros None that I can see.
Cons VERY, VERY LOUD. Poor job of pureeing. Difficult to clean.
Recommended it? No

I received this as a gift. I probably would not have bought it myself, and I certainly do not recommend it to anyone. It's louder than any other blender I've ever encountered. Wear ear protection when using this. (No, I'm not kidding.) It doesn't do a very good job of pureeing anything, so what use... Read full review »

Pros Looks Good. Works for a while.
Cons Stops working after about 6 pitchers of Daquiris/Smoothies.
Recommended it? No

This thing worked for a while and then just refused to run. Can't find a a reset button. From what I read in the reviews here, I don't think I will waste my time with customer service. I'll just never buy a Black and Decker appliance again (I stopped buying Black and Decker tools years ago since... Read full review »

Pros It did blend the food well the one time I used it
Cons It was too loud and there is no replacement jar

I find this blender too loud. For the price I paid I am not happy with the quality of the product or the service. After 5 days of owning this blender my the glass jar slipped out of my husbands hands while doing the dishes and landed back in the sink and the handle broke off the jar. I called the...

Start by itself problem here too

bynolonemo Oct 14, 2006
6 Helpfuls 7 Helpfuls Was this review helpful?
Pros Looks good, strong motor.
Cons Heavy jar, starts by itself, fire hazard.
Recommended it? No

After a year or so, this blender is having the "starts up by itself" problem. All solid state, so it's not fixable without replacing the electronics. A waste of money, not to mention an incredible fire hazard the first time the problem happens (ours is unplugged). Read full review »

Pros Beautiful design Heavy duty Glass jar
Cons starts leaking very soon
Recommended it? No

This blender looked very appealing to me for its design and for the robustness I thought it had. The jar is glass, not plastic, it has a heavy base, looks very stylish and I thought: well it's Black & Decker, it will work just fine. Plus, I got it on sale, so the price was a really appealing deal... Read full review »

Cons Won't blend, unreliable, non-durable, leaks

O.K. dear, let's go ahead and buy a heavy duty blender....hey look, there's a Black & Decker, if they make power drills, they surely can make a good blender. We want something strong and I bet you can't go wrong with a Black & Decker. Wrong.

The first one we bought lasted 2 times. When my... Read full review »

Cons Used 8 times before it died. NO customer service.

I bought this tough-looking blender a little over a year ago. I was notified 6 months ago of a recall involving breaking blades so I called for my free replacement blade mechanism - four times! I finally received my blade replacement last week. Blender died in the middle of making my first smoothie... Read full review »

Stay away from this blender. I woke up one morning to the sound of this thing going off in the kitchen. The thing had turned on by itself and was so hot i'm surprised it didn't burn down the house. Scary. After it happened it no longer worked either. At first i thought maybe this was just an... Read full review »

Pros I like the heavy glass container and the design.
Cons It failed just after the one year warranty.

I bought this just over one year ago and have probably used it seven times. While making dip for a party, it just quit. After letting it rest over 24 hours it still would not power on. My husband tried opening it up to see if he could fix it, but most of the components were computerized. He was... Read full review »

Decent for Short Term Only

Pros Stylish, thick glass jug
Cons loud, can't crush ice well, poor construction of blade base.
Recommended it? No

I bought this blender in January 2005. While I was disappointed with its inability to crush ice effectively, I was happy with the modern style and it worked well enough for my main use - which is making smoothies. However, recently the blender started leaking inexplicably from the bottom. No amount... Read full review »

Cons dead in a year, scalds you with hot soup, loud, heavy

*Update* I made frozen drinks tonight and when I tried to turn the crush ice option on again absolutely nothing happened. Totally kaput. A year old and dead as a doornail. What a piece of junk. I will never buy a Black and Decker kitchen appliance again.
I primarily used this for smoothies and... Read full review »

Pros Cuts up frozen fruits easily. Pretty Looking. Easy clean buttons.
Cons First time used it had a electronic burn smell, but it is gone now.
Recommended it? Yes

Solid Frozen Fruit Smoothie Maker for me. I use frozen banana chunks, berries protein powder and fill milk to the top of the frozen fruits and blends it all well. It has a powerful motor so it hasn't failed me yet. I've had it for about 2 months and about 30 smoothies so far.

Pros decent blender when it is not freaking out
Cons one of the worst kitchen appliance I have ever seen

We got this Blender less than a year ago. At first it worked great, we mainly use it for smoothies and crushing ice. After about 6 months of light use (may be once every 2 weeks), the motor starts running all on its own!! It only turns off if I HOLD the off button down with my finger. I think it...
