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.

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!
