It’s the ultimate healthy eating appliance and has been for years, in fact it has sold more than 40 million units worldwide. Pretty impressive – but is the NutriBullet worth your pretty pennies? I’ve been using our bright pink NutriBullet 600 series for the past few weeks in as many ways as possible so I reckon I can give you a pretty fair and unbiased review. Ready? Let’s jump right in!
I think it’s important to note that I’ve used multiple blenders over the last few years, and I’ve used them all for various amounts of time. So when I got my hands on the NutriBullet, I was really interested to see how well it would compare and what actually set it apart from all the many other brands out there. So before we go into how useful I found my NutriBullet, let’s chat about all the technical bits and pieces.
The NutriBullet 600 series has a 600 watt power base, and while this is the least powerful one available (there is also the 900 and Rx series), it packs a serious punch. Something that I didn’t realise is that there are two different blades available for you to use with your NutriBullet. If you purchase the 12 piece set, you get both, if you opt for the 8 piece; you only receive the Extractor Blade. This is probably the most useful blade as it literally shreds, cracks and breaks down pretty much anything that you put into your NutriBullet including ice, seeds and nuts. The second blade that is available is the Milling Blade which is perfect for grinding grains and coffee beans, as well as pulsing fresh herbs. It’s also important to mention that the NutriBullet’s blade designs are patented and that it has a unique cyclonic action, ensuring that your food is extracted to perfection. Something else that I think is worth mentioning is that you can purchase all of the different accessories separately on the NutriBullet website. So if you need to replace your blade or misplace one of your cups, it’s a really easy process to get a replacement.
So onto the part that I’m sure most of you are interested in, how much did I use the NutriBullet and do I think it’s worth the price (which to be honest is less than what I thought it was). Here’s how we used our bright pink NutriBullet:
- Aria has omelettes at least 4 times a week, sometimes for breakfast and sometimes for lunch. Now I’ve gotten pretty pro at them but mixing everything up in the NutriBullet makes them so much better- they are lighter and fluffier. Delish!
- Of course the NutriBullet is great for making smoothies whether ready made (we love Blendid) or from scratch. The blades glide through the ice like butter and mixes everything together perfectly
- If you’ve been following me on social media for a while, you will know that I’m quite the fan of adding supplements into both mine and Aria’s food in the morning. The NutriBullet has been really great for that. In the past, I used to just stir powders in but that often left me with a few lumps which aren’t very appetising at all. When I use the NutriBullet for our powder supplements, it works like a bomb, regardless of what I’m mixing it into (muffin mixture, smoothies, omelette mixture, etc).
- I’ve mixed up some really yummy pasta sauces in the NutriBullet. Usually tomato based just because it’s our preference but I’m sure lots of you remember the “Monster Pasta” recipe I shared on my Instagram Stories a little while ago. The sauces some out perfectly smooth without any lumps or unblended bits.
- I’ve found that the NutriBullet is fab for mixing up baking batters (in small quantities); protein pancakes, muffins, crumpets, you name it, I’ve done it and it worked like a bomb.
- Although I haven’t used it for this, if Aria was just starting on solids, I know that this would be incredibly useful to blend up all her little meals. There is also the option of purchasing the Baby Bullet which comes with some great storage options.
All in all I have found the NutriBullet incredibly useful and so handy to have on the countertop. It’s really easy to clean (it can even go in the dishwasher) and to be honest, using it results in less dishes to be washed (can I get a “woohoo”?!). Honestly, if you have the budget, get one. It’s made our life easier and I’m sure it will do the same for you.
