nutribullet with fruit and nuts

The NutriBullet nutrient extractor (or just a blender) is a compact machine (base dimensions: 5.375″ diameter, and 8″ height) that is often promoted as an innovative approach towards weight loss and good health!

Without taking these claims into consideration, I can say that this product has managed to make a significant impact in the diet and healthy eating industry.

Let’s take a look at this machine with a critical eye to see whether it is actually worth your money or not. I even compare it to two other most popular brands of blenders on today’s market.

Key Features of NutriBullet Blender

nutribullet features

Although this machine is promoted as a special nutrient extractor, I have to admit that it looks to me like a blender with a fancy name.

All NutriBullet models are oval in shape, thin, about a foot high, and very compact! The actual machine is sold as a part of a deal that includes:

  1. The actual blender.
  2. Set of 2 additional cutting blades.
  3. Set of 2 extra blending cups.
  4. Excellent nutrition book as a limited time offer.

Pay attention:

All models come with a matte grey finish with silver highlights (a limited time only blue and gray option is available as well).

The Good (Pros)

  1. Includes a powerful motor.
  2. It takes up very little space.
  3. Cups and lids are dishwasher safe and BPA-free. However, hand washing and cleaning prolongs its longevity.
  4. This product is easy to use and clean, so it saves a lot of time.
  5. More affordable in comparison to other brands such as Vitamix.
  6. Storing thanks to a removable handle on lidded cups is easy.

The Bad (Cons)

  1. It is quite noisy and needs to be stopped every 30-60 seconds to avoid overheating.
  2. Cups are plastic (do not put anything hot in and do not store your smoothies in these cups if you are worried about chemicals leaching into your smoothie).
  3. There is just a 1-year warranty.
  4. Its blades are not dishwasher-safe.

In general, there are three main brands of blenders on the market these days that will compete against each other. Except NutriBullet, these include brands such as The Nutri Ninja and The Vitamix. You can see my comparison below.

NutriBullet vs. Nutri Ninja Blender

Nutribullet vs Ninja blander

Let’s take a look at how NutriBullet stands against Nutri Ninja blenders. Both brands work well. However, there are slight (yet significant) differences you need to know about before you decide!

Usage:

– I can say that NutriBullet is better suited for mixing fruits and vegetables that include harder skin and stem. Therefore, if you want to make juices and soups, this is a much better option.

– The Nutri Ninja blenders are better for mixing softer type of foods and chopping ice. Therefore, it is perfect for making side dishes, smoothies, or even frozen desserts.

Blending power:

– The NutriBullet brand offers three models with motors of various power: NutriBullet (600 Watts), Pro (900 Watts), RX (1700 Watts)!

– The Nutri Ninja offers exactly twelve different models (with various motor power) from 700 up to 1500 Watts!

Price range and warranty:

– The NutriBullet brand offers individual models for $79.99, $99.99, and $179.99! All their products come with a 1-year warranty.

– The Nutri Ninja models cost between $89.99 and $179.80! All their products come with an impressive 5-year warranty.

My verdict:

You can not go wrong with both brands. As you can see, the Nutri Ninja offers a much better warranty and much more models to choose from! However, in the end, what you should buy will depend on the way you plan to use it.

The NutriBullet vs. The Vitamix

Nutribullet vs Vitamix

Let’s examine the Vitamix Blender. When compared to the NutriBullet, it tends to win in processing raw foods. However, it is more expensive, bulkier and has an array of confusing options.

Usage:

– I can say that NutriBullet is better suited for mixing fruits and vegetables that include harder skin and stem. Therefore, this option is great if you want to make juices and soups.

– The Vitamix is a blender of choice for many chefs as it spins and blends so fast, and this product can make hot soups (except blending it even heats up vegetables)! Depending on models and attachments, you can do many other jobs in the kitchen with it.

Blending power:

– The NutriBullet brand offers three models with motors of various power: NutriBullet (600 Watts), Pro (900 Watts), RX (1700 Watts)!

– In general, the Vitamix uses a 1380 Watt motor. However, they provide a wide array of models with motors of different power ranging from 800 up to 1600 Watts!

Price range and warranty:

– The NutriBullet brand offers individual models for $79.99, $99.99, and $179.99! All their products come with a 1-year warranty.

– The Vitamix provides a wider array of products divided into three categories: Personal Blenders ($259.00 – $469.00), Classic Blenders ($299.00 – $699.00), and Next Generation ($429.00 – $719.00). They offer their products with a 5-year warranty.

My verdict:

Although the Vitamix is winning in many aspects, it is the price that makes me choose NutriBullet as my personal winner. However, if you have around $600.00 budget on your blender then definitely go for the Vitamix.

Valuable User Feedback & Reviews You Should Check Out as Well

So what do people think of the NutriBullet? The vast majority of users (not including those provided on the official website itself) are euphoric with the blending power and how the NutriBullet fits in their kitchen.

In general, here are few user responses I found on the internet:

  1. If you have a busy lifestyle and is a person whose always “on the go,” then this is the product for you.” – A verdict from the “Prime Physique Nutrition” page.
  2. The takeaway? While it’s not a Vitamix replacement, the NutriBullet seems to live up to the hype (cheesy infomercial aside) about its smoothie-blending prowess.”A verdict from “Well And Good” website.
  3. A blender this useful is too good to be co-opted by the spirulina snorters. Here’s what Nutri-dullards aren’t telling you – it’s not for healthy people. It’s for incredibly lazy people. I’ll drink to that, any day. – A statement from a review on “The Guardian” website.
  4. Proving that sometimes the simplest ideas are the best, the NutriBullet is a user-friendly way to make tasty smoothies an effortless daily habit. – A verdict from “Trusted Reviews” website.

Pay attention:

Of the concerns listed, the vast majority are from a deformation that can occur at the base of the NutriBullet, which causes juice to leak while blending. Also, people who were looking for a blender for specific purposes not listed under what the company offered were less than satisfied with their purchase!

Final Verdict: Great Nutrient Extractor Worth Adding to Your Kitchen

Nutribullet rating

From what I have seen and read on the internet, I can only say that the NutriBullet is a great addition to any kitchen. Although it is not as good as the Vitamix brand, it costs much less, and the product value for the dollar is incredible.

Trust me that you can not go wrong with this nutrient extractor as it works well, is easy to use and clean, and comes with 1-year warranty.

What is more, there is just a minimum of users who report technical issues with this machine. So if you decide to get one for yourself, then I highly suggest you to make your purchase on its official website called “NutriBullet.com.”

Numerous reliable brick and mortar outlets sell this product, including “Bed Bath & Beyond” as well as “Wal-Mart”. Just stay away from buying used products off of “eBay” or “Amazon” as there is no quality guaranteed!
