These two personal blenders have a very different appearance. Their efficiency is also different from each other as well.

While the BLACK+DECKER FusionBlade wasn’t the best in our test of smoothies, it did at least break down all the frozen fruits without as much struggle as did the Magic Bullet 11-Piece Set. Its milkshake-making performance was also  more thorough, leaving  behind  a consistency where  just a very tiny flake of almond remained solid. If you want a blender that is moderately capable of everything, except for crushing ice, then consider this blender.

You might want to choose the Magic Bullet 11-Piece Set if you're after an affordable solution only for simple blends or for a fiber-rich diet. In the fibrous greens test, the product it produced was comparable in smoothness to the BLACK+DECKER’s product, and was a little bit more impressive than those of other counterparts.
