The NutriBullet has been a key part of my kitchen gadget collection for the past year.
Eating a nutritious breakfast in the morning can be challenging at times, especially when you are trying to wrangle 2 young kids out the door in time for school. I originally purchased a NutriBullet blender in January of 2016 to help me with my resolution to eat “healthy” every morning. What I discovered throughout the year is that the NutriBullet is an indispensable part of any well stocked kitchen.
NutriBullet Review: Pros
Making 3 smoothies a day is no challenge whatsoever for the Nutribullet. The powerful motor and super sharp blades make quick work of anything you throw at it. Frozen bananas, ice cubes, frozen pineapple, apples… they will all blend with ease. The best part is that you can remove the blade, rinse it off, attach it to another cup and blend another smoothie in less than 1 minute. This is especially useful when trying to make individual smoothies for your hangry offspring.
Did I mention that cleanup is EXTREMELY simple? Once you remove the blade from the top of the cup, I usually rinse it and use a sponge to quickly wipe down the blades, then set it out dry. The cups double as, well, a cup. When you are done drinking your smoothie, simply drop them on the top shelf of your dishwasher.
As I mentioned, I have yet to encounter an food that the NutriBullet cannot blend/dice/grind. I use mine as a coffee grinder for my French press coffee. I’ve used it to make salsa, margaritas, marinades, and yes even baby food!
NutriBullet Review: Cons
There are a couple of things that I find a little annoying, however they are so trivial I hesitated writing them down.
First, the o-ring seal on the blade mechanism tends to pop out when you are cleaning it. I suppose it’s a good thing to clean the gunk under the o-ring. I found using a chopstick to properly seat the ring in place is the best way to avoid a cut finger.
Next, I wish I could get the cups in glass. The plastic is great for my kids as they have a tendency to drop things at exactly the worst moment, but glass is my personal preference for a variety of reasons.
Is a NutriBullet Worth buying?
The Magic Bullet NutriBullet will always have a spot on my limited counter space. Its powerful 600-watt motor, ease of cleaning and overall versatility make this blender the best thing I purchased in 2016 for under $100.
