Featuring another small but powerful blender from Magic Bullet, the NutriBullet Pro 900 Series offers even more power than the NutriBullet 12-Piece High-Speed Blender. It retains all the great functions and instead of twelve, it comes with fifteen pieces overall, so it is much more versatile.
If you saw some reviews and videos of the NutriBullet 12-Piece model and liked its features, this one is pretty much the same except it is more powerful. It costs a little more for the upgraded specs but is it really worth the price? In this review, we will look at the different added features and upgrades of the NutriBullet to help you decide if this is the right blender for you.
Important Features and Specs
The NutriBullet is a special kind of countertop blender that also works much like a personal or single serve blender. Basically, it does most functions of any standard sized blender but you can use it for making smoothies right in a personal cup which you can take away and drink on your way to work. To know more about the different types of blenders and what they’re best for, you can check our Best Blenders Buying Guide. You will see that bullet type blenders are becoming popular.
This model comes in a nice metallic gray base – where the motor is located and clear containers in varied sizes. It includes one colossal cup for big preparations, 2 tall cups, 1 short cup, and different types of lids; some with portable lip rings so you can put the cup on your car cup holder and enjoy your drink on the go.
The flip-to-go lid comes in very handy with the tall cup; so that it looks like a sports water bottle. It is a little heavier than a normal personal blender but not as heavy as a countertop, with dimensions of 14 x 16.3 x 7.9 inches, Width, Depth, and Height (WDH) and weighs 11.6 pounds.
It features a very powerful 900 Watt motor, great for crushing ice, making smoothies and even green smoothies. The blades it comes with are especially designed to extract the most nutrients from fruits and vegetables. They’re called the extractor blades. They can burst seeds open, crush through stems, and shred vegetable skins to get the vital nutrition inside the ingredients.
This will be great for making super foods and healthy smoothies for fitness enthusiasts. To use the machine, you just put your ingredients on your preferred container or blending jar, cover it with the blades lid, and lock it upside-down onto the base.
Twist it a little while pushing the container down to start the blades. When tested to make a strawberry banana smoothie, the blender crushed the ice in a very fine consistency and the fruits blended right in, creating a rich and thick smoothie.
It is also great for grinding dry food. The cyclonic action adds power to the blades to pulverize and emulsify food to get the most nutrients from them; especially with the milling blade which is ideal for grinding herbs and chopping nuts. It includes a cook book with interesting recipes for health enthusiasts.
The containers come with resealable lids so you can store food and drinks on the fridge after blending. They are also dishwasher safe so you have less to clean. One common problem that some customers encountered was the blades breaking down after some time of heavy use. So you may want to consider a different model if you expect to do a lot of blending with ice, since that really works out the blades.
