Consumer review (

great blender for great tasting smoothies or fruit shakes


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...

the glass jar is a tad heavy

Complete garbage - might as well burn your money


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...

glass jar (not plastic), and most of its materials are recyclable

leaks at the seal; pour design causes irritating drips; doesn't mix thick stuff

What a piece of S*%&


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...

Looks Good. Works for a while

Stops working after about 6 pitchers of Daquiris/Smoothies

Bad Buy !


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.

Hummm....can't think of any

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

B&D Big name big piece of Junk


I bought this as a Christmas gift for myself. I thought using a Black & Decker product I was in the clear. I never checked or researched this blender for reviews or write-ups.

It looked nice until it broke

recalled, one month use, major problems trying to get a new one that works

Not recommended


The BL5000 certainly looks like a serious blender, with its glass jar and stainless finish. Unfortunately, looks can deceive. The blender worked fine for 3 uses, then began to mysteriously leak from the bottom. Tightening the base of the jar didn't...

Looks great; large glass jar; powerful motor

Shoddy construction; no customer service

An Effective Milkshake Maker


I bought the Black and Decker BL5000 problend work top blender two months ago, and it is a very consistent performer. It has a monstrous 550 watt motor, with 2 plane dual edge blades. There are five speeds of blending on this unit, and they are puree,...

Powerful Motor, Blends all items well

A piece of DOO DOO!


I was excited when I saw this blender in the store saying it was made for ice crushing. It also has a 550 watt motor and a nice chrome finish. I was reluctant to buy because it is a Black and Decker product, but decided to give it a try since they had...

Looks good, claims to have ice function, 550 watt motor

Broke on 2nd use and is a fire hazard, should be recalled

Worked well the first time


While it looked stylish and seemed like a heavy duty blender for the price it has mysteriously stopped working after the 1st use. The first time it blended great. The second time we plugged it in, pressed the power, and nothing. It has refused to even...

not very durable

Can not recommend


I used this product primarily for making smoothies. It lasted 2 days the first go round. The blade mechanism stripped. The company sent me a new mechanism promptly. That one lasted 6 weeks. I thawed my frozen fruit in the microwave first this time...

customer service good

Poor blade mechanism
