Holiday Gift Guide | Black & Decker Review & Giveaway (Can)

We use our blender quite frequently during the holiday season for making drinks, crushing ice, blending soups and more. The Black & Decker® Die-Cast Blender BL3000SC is a powerful blender that is also quite budget-friendly as it is affordably priced with a SRP of only $69.99!

This digital control blender is built to perform and uses 750 watts of “Cyclonic Power™” (475 standard watts) to maximize its ability to crush ice, blend smoothies, make salsa etc. It even has a 60 second digital countdown timer for use while blending. I appreciate that it is built using a 48 ounce heat-resistant glass blending jar because it makes it easier than ever for me to puree vegetables for soup. I recently used this blender to puree roasted pumpkin to make most delicious cream of pumpkin soup and it effortlessly blended the pumpkin into a smooth base for my soup.

The multi-level stainless steel blades along with the ice-crush feature were perfect for blending smoothies and mixed drinks. This blender has four speeds plus a pulse option and it is very user friendly. I also like that it has a unique 1 ounce measuring cup stored inside the lid and it has come in handy for me whenever I use this blender. My favorite feature is the design and “no-fuss” surface cleaning which is also dishwasher safe and has removable parts. A few months ago, I had purchased a very expensive blender from another brand that is extremely difficult to clean and food/liquid particles get stuck under the handle and lid. In fact, it has become so difficult to clean that I have decided to replace it with the Black & Decker blender which works just as well as it does and is easy to clean at a fraction of the cost that I paid for the other useless blender.

Additional Features include:

  • 2 year limited warranty
  • Cord Storage
  • Perfect Pour® Jar Spout
  • Designed to last
  • Easy clean control pad

I did a lot of research prior to purchasing my original blender and in hindsight I wish that I had gone with the high quality Black & Decker® appliance instead. This blender does everything that I need a blender to do in terms of mixing, blending and crushing and it is backed by the high quality Black & Decker name.
