While the Vitamix holds her own as the undisputed queen of the big blenders, there is a new kid in town. Fast, sleek and more compact, the Nutri Bullet is like the streamlined sports car model. This small, light, space saver is a highly recommended piece of kitchen equipment for busy, “on the go” people who still want to be healthy.
The Nutri Bullet is not a juicer – it makes juice smoothies. With a juicer you end up discarding the pulp and with it a multitude of important nutrients, most notably fiber. The Nutri Bullet allows you to keep the pulp, but breaks it up into a more palatable consistency with its powerful 2 blade design. Its 600 watt motor pulverizes ingredients until they are smooth as silk, and does it in seconds to boot. The whole smoothie making process, including prep time and clean up, can be done in under 5 minutes!
Cleaning the Nutri Bullet is a breeze, it literally rinses clean in seconds and there is no need to peel and deseed your ingredients like with a juicer because the Nutri Bullet tears right through them – a real time-saver. The result is a simple, convenient and efficient experience. You will not believe how easy it is to make such a well-blended and creamy smoothie.
The Nutri Bullet is quite a bit cheaper than the Vitamix and works quietly on its heavy sturdy base. For its size, it is an incredibly powerful machine – it grinds and liquefies fruit and vegetables better than most big blenders. The bottom line is that the very affordable Nutri Bullet is perfect for people with a busy lifestyle and it definitely lives up to all the hype surrounding its smoothie blending prowess. A great investment.
