Shaking Things Up – Is The NutriBullet Really The Best?


Whether it’s juicing, blending, or making smoothies, these days the craze is all about drinking your nutrients and the Nutribullet is hailed as the “Lord of the Blend” in terms of kitchen equipment. Now, with the release of the NutriBullet Baby Bullet, things are becoming a bit privileged. So, the big question is, “Is the NutriBullet really the best out there”?

What makes the NutriBullet so wonderful is its easy-to-clean qualities. Juicing and blending gets really messy and the NutriBullet still maintains this important feature with dishwasher-safe cups and lids. The NutriBullet also takes up very little space and is convenient to store anywhere on the kitchen counter, making it a space-saving kitchen essential.

Last but not least, a priority for all pro-blenders, is how smooth will my smoothie be? With its patented extractor blades, the NutriBullet gets right down to the toughest ingredient serving as the ultimate disciplinarian for those stubborn nuts – while still maintaining all the nutritional value of all your smoothie’s makeup.

The Bullet Collection

The Original Magic Bullet seems unable to really smooth things out when it comes to anything frozen due to its 600-watt motor; however, the 900 watt NutriBullet Pro certainly can, and clearly surpasses in power and flexibility in terms of texture variation.  If your main concern is cost, the predecessor is obviously cheaper. The NutriBullet RX really takes things further with its ability to conjure up soups with its stainless steel blade and 1700 watt steam engine.

What Are Some Other Alternatives Besides The NutriBullet range?

The idea behind buying a blender is to buy one which will last for years. This is where the Vitamix becomes more popular with its big and powerful stature. Found in many households and restaurants, it is able to make soups, purees and even ice cream.

But the NutriBullet launched a Nutri Ninja, with the same versatility and here’s what was found when the two was put to test:

The Vitamix is quieter and brought about a thinner smoothie in a shorter time (only by seconds with its 1260 watt motor). So, if you are more sensitive to noise and insensitive to forking out the cash for a blender, then the Vitamix is for you.

Available for R14500

Whether the Nutribullet is the best, really comes down to your needs. Depending on whether you need a juicer for your juicing cafe, restaurant or you simply love hosting guests, machines like the Vitamix and NutriBullet Ninja is what you’re looking for. However, if you are looking for convenience and something affordable and of quality, the NutriBullet Pro and RX should provide you with some good smoothies for a couple of years.
