No more stopping, stirring, or shaking to clear jams in your blender. The BLACK+DECKER® Performance HELIX™ Blender features our exclusive Blade Boost™ Technology so you can blend up to 50 percent faster*. Simply press down on the blender jar to raise the blade height and break through air pockets, grabbing ingredients above and creating a powerful vortex — it’s that easy! Plus, with four speeds, including two pulse settings, a 4-tip stainless steel blade, and 800-watts of peak ice crushing power+, nothing can stand in its way. The 6-cup capacity Perfect Pour glass blending jar and lid with built-in ingredient slot and measuring cap make this the perfect kitchen companion to create smoothies, purees, soups and more with ease. Even better, once you’re finished, the removable parts are dishwasher safe for simple clean up.
