In order for the body to absorb nutrients from food, the stomach has to break it down past the cellular level. Food extractors are used to break down food into a “pre-digested” state and enable your stomach to easily reach essential nutrients and vitamins.
The NutriBullet is a food extractor which is used to grind up all types of foods into drinks. Not only can you use it to make health shakes and juices, but you can also make soups, dressings, desserts, flour, and peanut butter.
The main difference between a typical blender and an extractor is the amount of horsepower in the mechanism. An extractor has so much horsepower that when used in combination with extremely sharp blades, you can pulverize anything into extremely small particles.
The fun part of the process is making up your own personalized recipes using your favorite foods. Using foods with certain nutrients and vitamins allows you to customize the nutritional components you wish to obtain. Some of the benefits you can expect from choosing specific foods include reduced joint pain, younger looking skin, lower blood pressure, lower cholesterol and migraine relief.
When ordering the NutriBullet online you have the option of paying the full price of $119.94 or making six individual payments of $19.99. The NutriBullet comes with a milling blade, an extractor blade, a power base, three cups, two lids, one user guide/recipe book, one pocket nutritionist, and the Natural Healing Book which is a free bonus gift. There is a 30 day risk free money back guarantee as well.
The high price of this product needs to be weighed in regards to how much you are going to use it. If you invest in the product you are also committing yourself to the cost of the food you plan on using. Determine if you are excited about the idea of having product or actually using the product. If you have a habit of buying appliances, using them a few times, and then storing them in the cabinet where they will never be seen again, you may want to rethink this purchase.
If you are buying this as a miracle weight loss tool, you will also need to do the necessary additional typical activities that accompany any weight loss diet. Sometimes drinks can be a hidden source of calories, adding up to unexpected future weight gain. If you make health drinks, be sure to include the calorie content into your daily calorie count. If you use these drinks as meal replacement or make them with low calorie foods then you are on the right path. Don’t forget to incorporate physical activity into your weight loss program.
There are many complaints about the NutriBullet leaking during the mixing process. Consumers have ended up returning it because of this issue. Consider reviewing the reputation of other extractors that have been on the market for a longer period of time. All in all, you want to compare the capabilities of different extractors, the durability of the product and its components, and the ease of use. Overall, the easier it is for you to operate, the more likely you are to use it.

Disappointed in the gasket - it leaks
After a few months of using this product, the gasket fell out and I can't get it to fit back in. The unit leaks if I use it for more than a few seconds. Not good.
I've ordered a replacement blade unit (from Amazon) that claims to have a permanent gasket.
I like the nutribullet, but am disappointed in the poor engineering of the gasket.
Auto reorder scam
I ordered the extractor blades and lid about 6 weeks ago and also the superfood packet of 2. They arrived... no problem. About 4 - 6 weeks later they notify me of a shipment for 2 more packs of superfood claiming I had selected the auto reorder option which I did not select, at least that I was aware.
I called Nutribullet and spoke to Carlos and after explaining I did not want another order or elected the auto reorder option. I requested a return authorization nbr and requested when the product was returned to credit my credit card. He said it was their policy to not issue refunds. I explained that I NEVER select auto reorder especially on a product I'd never tried.
Carlos said he could charge me 1/2 price but I still had to pay shipping and product cost and still no refund. I then told him I'd contact my credit card company and file a complaint... Still it didn't change anything.
This definitely is very customer unfriendly and I'd never order product from them again and couldn't recommend them as a trustworthy company.
Couldn't be happier!!
I bought the Nutribullet 900 a couple of months ago and declare it to be the best juicer/blender I have ever come across. As far as I am concerned it does exactly as advertised inasmuch as it blends everything you throw at it into a no-lump liquid, it's easy to clean and it's pretty robust too. Our household consists of 5 working adults between 27 and 65, 61 year old me and a 4 year old and we all have a nutriblast first thing every morning. The difference in all of us has been nothing less than amazing. We have more energy, some have lost a bit of weight and we all look and feel much healthier; so much so that friends are starting to comment and want to try "that greeny/browny disgusting looking stuff" for themselves.
If you are looking for no-lump, no fuss liquid nutrition then this is what you should be buying. It's not exactly expensive and I, for one, have never had a minutes problem with mine.
Word of advice: READ THE INSTRUCTIONS!!! There is important stuff in there that you need to know about. Oh, and make sure the cup is tightly fitted onto the whirly bit then it won't leak.
We have had it for several weeks and it seems to perform as advertised. I wish all the clever documentation would explain more simply and in an easier to find fasion just how to turn it on and off, because there is no swtich, but I figured it out. Does it leak? Ours doesn't. Perhaps other users disobeyed the instructions not to fill the beaker past the Max Fill line. Hard to find a replacement blade? Gee, ours came with a card, among the instructions, that offered replacement blades for $9.96.
DON'T DO IT!!!
DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY LIKE I DID!!! THIS IS A LEMON PRODUCT AND THE COMPANY WILL NOT HONOR THE WARRANTY. I EVEN BOUGHT AN EXTENDED WARRANTY AND WAS TOLD THEY WILL NOT REPLACE THE PRODUCT UNLESS IT ABSOLUTELY DOES NOT WORK. IT WORKS BUT ONLY AFTER I MESS WITH IT FOR 20 MINS FIRST.
The part that I needed replaced for the nutribullet probably would only cost $5. I looked for this part on the internet and could not find it anywhere. My husband called them and he was told that they do not sell that part separately. We would also have to buy the base. With purchasing the whole base of the nutribullet and shipping and handling, it was going to be $59. My husband told them thanks but no thanks. I am so embarrassed because I have purchased one for ourselves and 1 for each of our 5 children and 1 for a grown grandchild. I feel like I need to apologize to each of our children and hope they don't have problems as so many have had. It may appear to be great on TV. However, my adivce is to save your money for something much better.
Skeptical to Purchase
I am about to place my order after watching the infomercial. My inner voice urged me to research reviews. I'm very glad I did. Not going to waste my money AGAIN! Did so by purchasing the Montel Williams' endorsed blender which I loved, and encountered problem with the motor. Customer service sucked! Not helpful at all! That product was NOT CHEAP!
I will continue to use my $10 Blender which does the same thing, just not quite as good. But I get my nutrients...
funciona cuando le da la gana
lo compre muy entusiamada y me estaba yendo bien con su trituracion,pero de repente se pone que no funciona,le doy la vuelta para que funcione y nada,de repente funciona y de repene no quiere trabajar necesito el numero del telefono de servicio al cliente para infornarles y para ver que me sugieren
I have only had the unit for a couple of weeks now, and have no complaints with the unit itself, it's integrity of the customer service I am reviewing.
Customer service did not back up promise made during purchase. There was a free gift offer at the time and since I was ordering the 2 for 1 deal, I inquired about the free offer and was assured I would get the free offer for both systems. The shipment arrived with only 1 of the free gifts and when I contacted customer service I got an apology about the misunderstanding. When I requested they listen to the recording of the conversion when I placed the order I was informed that it didn’t matter what I was assured at time of purchase I still would not receive the 2nd item.
Nutribullet Gasket Problem
I do enjoy my Nutribullet that I purchased two months ago from B B & Beyond. No problem with the machine. It chews up the fiber and pulp into a smoothie, which is what I was looking for.
The gaskets, they are the weak spot in this system. A custom gasket is required to stop leaks between the blade and the container. The trick here is to get the blade screwed on super tight. I chewed up one of my gaskets on the first day by not getting it tight enough. Luckily, being within the first 30 days the company sent a new one. Key: they only send gaskets out WITH a new blade. They DO NOT sell or ship gaskets by themselves. This means if you ruin a gasket like I did or your gasket eventually wears out, you will be purchasing a blade to go with that $.10 gasket. This will run you $12 + ship.
Nutribullet probably gets many requests for gaskets and knows what they are doing here. Smacks of conspiracy!
After-market gaskets are available on Amazon but there is some question about what style to buy, "with a lip or not". But, that is other story.
Total waste of money!
Ok so I purchased the nutri bullet may 2013, had to replace 1st time within 3 months as the base had a huge crack in it and rust at the mechanism area. No issues the first time replacing it. So I get the 2nd one, lasted for about 5 months until one morning I went to plug it in and there was a big blue electric current came out of my electrical outlet and smoke came out of the machine and the cord plug had black soot on it as well. I could have so been electrocuted, so mad. I went to return this one and it was like I was a criminal being interrogated never again with I buy one of these. I'm on my third one as they would not give $ back...errrrrrr!!! It will probably not be used as I am scared from last incident!
Oil leaking from extractor blades
I am on my third replacement. I never fill past the line, and I do not use
any ice or frozen fruit anymore. I did with my first one, and the extractor blade leaked oil. With my second one, I was extra cautious, but still leaking after three months. Bed bath and Beyond encouraged me to try a third one (the extractor blades looked different), so I did. I love Bed bath and beyond and their customer service is absolutely great, unlike the saff at nutribullet online customer support.
Tomorrow I am making my last Nutribullet trip to Beth Bath & Beyond. The new blades leaked also.
Terrible product, especially for the price.
They should be ashamed.
My Nutribullet base stopped working. I called the customer service department and after going over everything they replaced the base free of charge. I have had my bullet for 15 months and really love it. Never experienced any oil leaking from my blade. Glad I called the company instead of going out and purchasing another bullet. Very very happy with this company.
Reason for Extractor blade failure
The extractor blade bearing/shaft assembly is designed for failure! The shaft diameter is too small causing bearing spin-on-shaft. New assemblies from the factory already show spin-on-shaft. And that will only get worse. A shaft in use for only 1 week show heavy scoring. Spin-on-shaft for a minute or more, will cause the bearing to reach excessive temperatures causing the lubricant to char and leak from the bearing. If operated for short periods, the lubricant will leak out with a brownish color and long periods it will turn black!
Blade leaks after 2 months and it is a health hazard.
I have had my Nutribullet for 2 months, and taken very good care of it and followed the instructions carefully. the end result, is the blade failed and started leaking black oil into my smoothies. I was lucky to notice this, because if I hadn't, I could have been drinking this junk for weeks, until the blade failed altogether, which is a very common problem with this appliance. They have a Facebook page for Nutribullet, and when someone posts problems with the blade leaking oil and rust, and smoothie ingredients into the motor part of the unit, the Nutribullet people delete those posts from the Facebook page as soon as they can. How dishonest is that? They want to hide the facts from their customers.
The reason I think the Nutribullet with the latest style blade is a health hazard also is this: make sure if you have the new style blade with the removable gasket, that you take the gasket out and wash it with soapy water every few days. It collects food under the gasket, which starts to decay and rot , and will smell pretty bad after awhile. This is not mentioned in the owners manual. It is obvious that if you drink something with this decomposing food mixed in with it, that you could get really sick. Nutribullet makes no effort at all to warn people about cleaning under this gasket on the blade assembly. They don't want you to know about it.
I feel bad, since after buying mine two months ago I bought one for both my daughters. Now I have to explain to them all the problems that they are liable to have. If anyone wants to see some of these issues, go to Youtube and do a search on Nutribullet Problems. There are many videos showing these issues.
Yesterday, I decided that I am going to bring my Nutribullet back to Bed Bath and Beyond for a refund, and I ordered an Omniblender, which is very similar to a Vitamix, but about 1/2 the cost. The reviews on the Omniblender are excellent, and my friend has had one for a year and uses it 3 times a day and loves it. It actually has a stronger motor than the Vitamix.
Bought 15 months ago. Used it little the first year due to traveling.
Started using it daily for light fruits and protein mix with kale. I
noticed brown grease around the rubber gear after one month.
Two weeks latter the blades locked up. Never used ice or any
thing harder than a cut up apple. I trashed the nutri and dug out
to the magic. It still works.
Worked great--for a month! Now grease, rust and noise.
I got mine and used it everyday for a month without any problems, but then it started leaking grease from the bottom of the blade part. After the grease was all gone, it rusted and now it's too noisy to use.
My suggestion to anyone thinking of buying the nutribullet, save your money and buy something else.
This is a compliant that I filed to the department of consummers affairs: I purchased a food blender called the Nutribullet 14 months ago from Bed bath and Beyond. They have varous infomercials on the product on TV and can be found at local retailers; however, I have the nutribullet for the last 14 months since then the blade stem/ bearings have rusted twice. I ordered a replacement blade about 6 months ago and this one has rusted as well and putting rust in my drinks. The blades need new materials that will not rust, and 2 blades in 14 months is unacceptable . The company thinks there is nothing wrong with their product, but there are multiple postings and video to show the problem. Because of health concerns I am submitting a complaint to your department. Any advice or help is greatly appreciated.
get a 20.00 blender at wal mart save your money worst waste of money ever this was
Can't live without it.
What can I say, I have tried them all. Have been juicing for over 20 years. This one wins hands down. No extracted pulp to deal with, no machine to clean, no extra moving parts to figure out. Simple to use, easy to transport. Great way to keep healthy. Number one in my book, five stars all the way.
