Black & Decker Digital Blender Perfect for Moms On-the-Go! – Frugal Novice

Black & Decker Digital Blender Perfect for Moms On-the-Go!

Note: I received the blender to facilitate my review. I was not compensated monetarily for this post. All opinions are honest and are entirely my own.

Now that the school year is underway, we’re fully immersed in what I like to call the wake-and-dash routine.

This involves getting up, waking the kids up, taking the dogs out, showering and getting ready, making sure the kids have breakfast, making sure the kids are getting dressed, making lunches for the kids… you get the picture, and if you’re a parent you know all too well how much of your morning routine is taken up with thinking about the kids.

As a result, I’m often out the door with no thought of breakfast for myself, and I end up snacking on things not ideal for starting the day. I’m thrilled, though, to discover the Black and Decker BL1820SG-P Fusion Blade Digital Blender to help save my mornings.


At first glance, this might seem like your typical blender; and in reviewing it as just that, it stands up pretty great against competitors. I love the glass vessel and the plastic casing around the bottom that slips over the base and stabilizes everything. I’d buy this blender just for having a good blender.


Black & Decker takes it one step further, though – or several steps, really – by providing pre-programmed buttons and a personal smoothie jar, too. Love it!

If you’ve ever made a smoothie before, you know that you typically have to start and stop the blender several times, jostling things around to get it well-blended. No more! Just push the “smoothie program” button and you can walk away and finish one of the other million things you need to do.


If you watch the video above, you can see how simple it is – and how well it works – but you can also see my before & after pics below. I just threw in some frozen fruit and some orange juice, and ended up with a great smoothie ready to take with me!



I love that once you’re done blending you can just put on the new lid and you’re ready to go; you don’t have to try to pour it into a different cup, potentially spilling it all over the counter (ahem… speaking from experience), and you don’t have to bring a cup with no lid in the car, accidentally splattering some of the smoothie in the car (ahem… again… speaking from experience).

You can find the Black & Decker digital blender on Amazon or at Target and other retailers. You’ll love it for making your busy mornings a little less crazy, and for all the other things you can make with this high-quality blender, too.

  • Lori T. September 30, 2014 at 11:49 pm

    I am in the market for this. My husband is constantly on the go, but really enjoys shakes for breakfast, so we’re looking for something like this to allow for him to enjoy his favorite breakfast where ever he goes.

  • Liz Mays October 1, 2014 at 12:05 am

    It’s so nice that you don’t have to keep pushing the contents down with a long-handled spoon. It does a great job!

  • Candy O October 1, 2014 at 1:01 am

    That’s a good looking blender! I love the glass jar blender. Is the to go cup also glass?

    • Christi October 1, 2014 at 8:56 am

      No, the to-go cup is plastic. I love the glass vessel for the large part, but I think for the personal bottle it’s nice having it plastic – easy to throw it in your bag and not worry about it breaking while you’re out and about!

    I love having a personal blender like this since I have a smoothie for breakfast every morning. It really makes it easy to clean too.

  • Janel (A Mom's Take) October 1, 2014 at 8:16 am

    I miss making myself smoothies. I can’t remember why I ever stopped, maybe I’ll start again. This looks like a great blender.

  • Amy @ Marvelous Mommy October 1, 2014 at 8:41 am
