Blenders are more than smoothies and daiquiris, they are soups, refried beans, dips, and fondues.

The Top 5 Nutribullets
#1 Choice - NutriBullet Pro
The Nutribullet Pro (14”x7”x13”) is an extraordinary little machine, it can churn out your favorite smoothies, dips, fruit or nut butters in a jiffy.
Luckily this is 9-piece system, equipped and ready for whatever culinary battle you throw their way… okay, maybe not any, but pretty darn close. Included in this package is one high torque base, an emulsifying extractor blade, 32 oz. Colossal cup, 24 oz. tall cup, a flip top lid, a handled lip ring, comfort lip ring, Life Changing Recipes book, a pocket nutritionist and a website membership allowing you access to around 700 new, fun recipes for your NutriBullet.
Now, I know that is a whole lot to take in, so I will break it down for you. The 900 watt high torque base included with this package allows your NutriBullet to operate at its maximum performance levels.
The cups and all that are fairly self explanatory, you use them with the blade and from there you can choose to use those cups for your consumption of whatever you may have made.
I personally enjoy smoothies, but that is another matter. The extractor blade is an awesome featured piece, this blade is used to emulsify, breakdown and/or pulverize fruits and veggies better than most any other blender or juicer on the market.
This is also a very easy to store and clean kitchen appliance, as the base is stainless steel and aluminum, while the cups are plastic. We recommend this appliance to stay on your countertop or to store in a cupboard, big or small, it will fit very well.
This 1700-watt blending system is one of a kind, as it is equipped to even blend soups and other awesome warm options like fondues. How often do you find a blender that is safe to use with warm foods?
Not often, at least not over here on our end.
The Rx is so equipped for hot foods, it even has a heating cycle for when you are blending or pulsing produce.
The NutriBullet Rx comes with the unique to NutriBullet extractor blade, a high torque base (1700-watt), a soup pitcher with a two piece lid and a standard pitcher lid.
This system also includes multiple cups and lids for your drinking and blending needs; a 30 oz. short cup with comfort ring, a 45 oz. over-sized cup, and a “Stay-Fresh” re-sealable lid.
If you are looking for a little bit more power out of your blender, this 1000 watt high torque based, NutriBullet Prime is probably your best bet. There really is no going wrong with this 7-piece set.
The Prime (15x7x16) is very close in size to the NutriBullet Pro, making for easy storage, something most of us appreciate.
This product has two cups, one composed of stainless steel and the other made of BPA free plastic, as we all enjoy knowing we are not consuming harmful chemicals.
The base of this machine is made of stainless steel aluminum and plastic, creating a durable base for an awesome blending experience.
Of the two cups there is the 28 oz. stainless steel, Colossal cup with a convenient handle, this cup specifically can hold and retain the temperature of its contents for up to 8 hours (for cold use).
Much like the Pro and many other NutriBullet packages the Prime includes and 32 oz. Colossal cup with comfortable vessel grip, this gives you the opportunity to hold your cup without effects from the temperature of the containers contents.
Along with the cups given, there are two comfort lips rings, two flip-top lids and a user guide as well as a recipe book.
This package also includes cutting edge SMART technology this activates an autocycle that automatically shuts off after maximum extraction.
If you are new to using the NutriBullet or if you are just not sure what to make with your new blender, we highly recommend using the Rx User guide and the Prescription Recipe book. Both of these small books allow you the grounds to learn of all the different features and recipes available to you with the NutriBullet Rx.
This is an easy to store product, though it is larger than the Prime and Pro by NutriBullet. We recommend this to those who are experienced and those who are inexperienced in the world of blending.
NutriBullet 8-Piece Set
The NutriBullet is an original product by Magic Bullet, this product is relatively small and a similar size to the Rx.
NutriBullet delivers excellent emulsifying technology within seconds, allowing you time for other more extensive kitchen tasks or maybe it will get those margaritas out to your friends faster.
Either way, the speed of this machine will deliver impeccable results.
NutriBullet’s 600-watt high torque motor powers its stainless steel extractor blade to create a unique cyclonic action, this specific motion makes for the perfect blending experience.
Along with the 600-watt base motor and stainless steel blades, comes a tall cup, short cup, handled lip ring, comfort lip ring, pocket nutritionist and manual with recipes for great smoothies, dips and more.
The Original Magic Bullet Blender
When space is tight and you are really in need of a blender with practical uses, easy clean up and easy storage, the original Magic Bullet blender will be the best option for you.
This product is a much more compact design than the aforementioned NutriBullets.
The original Magic Bullet is a one of a kind blending machine, capable of blending and emulsifying in 10 seconds or less. Now, that may not be true with absolutely everything, but is proven to have success with fruits, veggies and different sauces.
We recommend giving it a test for yourself, it scored well on my personal test, which is why this on our “favorite’s list”.
You can’t necessarily go wrong with a dishwasher safe blender that has the capability to complete each task as fast as this little guy.
The high torque power base and cross blade make for a quick smooth blend, chop or mix, making guacamole won’t be such a mess once you’ve got your hands on this.
If you should choose to buy the Magic Bullet it comes with a 10 second recipe book to help you with new dishes, this also comes with; two solid lids, a flip top lid, two comfort lip rings, and 18 oz. party mug, 12 oz. short cup and an 18 oz. tall cup.
Our Favorite Healthy Recipe For the NutriBullet/Magic Bullet
If you are on the market for a killer butternut squash soup, hold onto your hats, because we have an easy recipe sure to wow not only yourself, but your family and friends. This recipe makes two batches of soup for the smaller NutriBullets, while it can be one batch should you have the Rx.
- To begin, preheat your oven to 425 degrees, line baking sheet with parchment paper or foil, place halves of squash onto sheet. Drizzle olive oil, lightly over both halves making sure they are both coated well. Rub the oil into squash and season over each with salt and pepper.
- Turn the squash face down and roast until it is tender and completely cooked through, about 45 to 50 minutes. Set the squash to the side, wait for it to cool enough to handle, it should take about 10 minutes. Proceed to use a large spoon to scoop the flesh of the butternut squash into a bowl and discard of the tough outer skin.
- While that cooks, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil over medium heat in a medium saucepan or pot of your choice, until shimmering. Add the chopped shallot and 1 teaspoon salt. Cook, stir often until the shallot has softened and starts to turn golden on the edges, will beabout 3 to 4 minutes. Add garlic and stir frequently, cook until fragrant, do so for around 30 seconds.
- Transfer cooked garlic and shallot to blender, add the remaining maple syrup, roasted squash, nutmeg and a few dashes of pepper. Pour in vegetable broth, close lid and emulsify until it is a nice creamy consistency.
