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.
I have no idea where the poor reviews are coming from..... This product is great. I love it. People DON'T LISTEN TO THE POOR REVIEWS!!!! This product is amazing!!!!
I'm very surprised with all of the negative comments. Maybe I haven't used it long enough, but so far I think it is great! I am on day 6. I can't say if I've lost weight which is one of my goals, but I can say I do feel better. I don't feel as tired as I did before. With that being said, I should also mention I have a terrible diet. I don't eat many fruits or vegetables. I can honestly say I may POSSIBLY eat as many fruits and veggies in a week that I should eat per day (before Nutribullet). With the Nutribullet, I have had at least one "smoothie" a day with baby spinach, a mix of fruits and flax seed. If I don't lose weight it will be fine since I know the nutrition I'm getting is much better than before. Enjoy!
I ordered nutribullet online yesterday which was a mistake and i was billed $132.29. Only to find out that it is available at Target and Bed Bath and Beyond for only $99. I cancelled it after one hour of ordering, then later I was told it was already processed. Now, I had to wait for 3 weeks before it arrived.
Now feeling sad with all these reviews that I am reading..... BAD i had made this decision of getting this nutribullet online.
Just had my 1st shake/drink and it tasted toxic to me. The machine itself has a terrible toxic odor - cheap materials?? I started to get a headache from toxic stuff..that's why I do Organic...had to throw the rest of the drink away. I don't know if this smell will go away?? Any comments?
There is a plastic fan at the base of the power unit. Mine shattered into a dozen bits on the very first use. If your power base makes a rattling sound, like so many do, your fan may be broken too. Very poor quality construction.
It's been so far so good less one problem. It consistently trips the breaker no matter what outlet I use. I enjoy the health factor but don't want to spend all my time flipping switches at the breaker box. If I can figure out this flaw the product would be superb.
I bought the NutriBullet mid Oct. and couldn't wait to receive it. After I got it, "I fell in love"...., use it twice a day and referred it to friends. Dec. 24th in the course of making my morning drink it just stopped and I was unable to twist the cup off of the NutriBullet. I called customer service frantic (by now I live by the NutriBullet) I received a call back after 15 - 20 mins. and the male that I spoke to was very nice and told me that he would order the replacement parts (Base, Blade and Cup) but I was charged for the shipping.
To date I still have not received the order, on Monday, I called and was told that the items was on back order and she put me on hold to check when she returned I was told that a shipment had came in and she cancelled my order and she reordered the parts I needed. However, my order was finally shipped out on Thurs.(I kept tracking it online and now it is in the hands of the shippers).
My experience wasn't great but it was not half as bad as what I have been reading from the reviews. I hope once I receive my order that this will be my last experience with the NutriBullet company because reading all these neg. reviews is really scaring me. Good Luck everyone and hopefully I'm done........
Bought one and used it OK for about 45 days. After 45 days started to have reliability and quality problems (about 100 uses OK - after those 100 times it became just so and so).
Also I got more knowledge in the mean time. Most of the human assimilation of the nutrients - takes place during the mastication/chewing process in the mouth when is mixed with saliva (rest in the stomach/intestines) . During this process - between 10 to 80% of the nutrients are processed and/or absorbed and/or prepared for absorption in the mouth: very summary mastication/chewing gives 10% and very a thorough gives 80% absorption.
This machine is useful for people lazy in masticating/chewing, as it gives more nutrients in this case for absorption- about max 30% (the rest is lost by this machine as is chewing/masticating for you). But still masticating/chewing in the mouth can provide the max 80% absorption (mouth chew/masticate while mixing with saliva ) - pending on the person habits.
It is sold as an aggressive marketing strategy with exaggerated claims.
I bought this from a store that had a 30 day return policy and over paid for it to boot. $140+. Well after using it for 35 days not even once a day in total it started leaking. The lady of the house said this over priced blender is leaking, I said WHAT !!! are you kidding, Anyway, I am really pissed right now ! I will never buy anything from this store again and not sure I will buy from this company again, why not do extensive testing before you sell a product to millions of people and have all these bad reviews. What the hell is wrong with you guys. Another Chinese product. I bought pants from Wal-Mart made in China 10 years ago and after one wash they were garbage China, enough said !
I ordered the Magic Bullet in approximately 5 minutes over the phone right before Thanksgiving on 11/13/12. The MB was delivered in less than a week. Used it the next day - loved it. Used it the second day, one of the fan motor blades broke off and it made these horrible loud ticking sounds and smelled hot.
I packed it back up, called customer service for return authorization and to arrange a refund and could never get a human - ever - no matter what time I called. Finally left a message and "Albert" called me back the next day and we got squared up on the return and refund issues. He assured me that once they got the machine back, I would receive a full refund of my first payment of $24.15. He also said he did something in the system to prevent me from being charged again since I was returning it for a refund.
I sent the machine back via the return label he sent me and got a tracking number receipt from FEDEX. Nutribullet has my machine and has just charged me another payment of $24.15 on 1/2/13. Now, I have to spend more time tracking this and leaving messages, and trying to be available when THEY decide to get around to calling me back. Meanwhile, they keep taking my money!
I will never learn. DO NOT BUY STUFF ONLINE! It's not worth the hassle!!! ARRRGGGHHH!!
We had such high hopes for this machine and indeed it seemed to work well for the short time before it was broken. The poorly glued parts came apart within 3 weeks after gentle use by my 95 pound wife. The machine appears to have extremely poor build quality. What good is a machine with great intentions and poorly executed assembly?
I'm so happy I didn't get swayed by the negative comments/experiences. I bought mine at a local retailer and with coupons I had (regualr store coupons) I paid about $80. I knew that I could return it if I had any issues, but mine works great. I follow the instructions very closely and no issues. I feel great - love having flax seeds, goji berries, fruits, and veggies as a way to start my day. It take me a few minutes to whip one up and I'm able to have it for breakfast on my way to work. So happy.
To be honest, the first Nutribullet I bought did not work well, but I took a chance that the concept was good. I exchanged it for another one and it was the right decision. I love this machine. My husband is not a big fan of vegetables. We started a morning drink of spinach, cooked carrots, cooked califlower and some fruit for sweetness. It helped us to get to healthy diet. We have both lost weight. Clean up is a breeze, less than 30 seconds. My juicer took 15-20 minutes to clean. I also have a ninja blender which is very good when you want to add ice to a smoothy, but if you want to liquify your veggies, get a nutri bullet!
I ordered my nutribullet online I wanted to do the payments but instead they charged me the whole price. I tried calling them for two days after, but their call center was under maintenance. I couldn't even leave a voicemail! Finally I was able to get through to someone and he was truly the rudest person I have ever experienced in customer service. He said I couldn't cancel my order. And called me a liar when I asked him about the call center being down. I've worked in customer service so I know how horrible irate customers can be. So I really tried to be friendly with him. He was continuously disrespectful and rude for no reason. ORDER FROM A DIFFERENT WEBSITE! Do not go through NurtriBullet.com. You will have much better luck with Amazon.com or somewhere where they teach their representatives phone etiquette.
Even though I was impressed when I first viewed their advertisement. I was excited when I first obtain my item. The companies customer service department department has something to be desired. They indicate they will follow up with you in 24 hours. Have yet to wait for a call back or any kind of follow up. Three months later still have not received any kind of acknowledgment.
Overall I would not recommend the product to anyone.
I just want to share an experience we've had with Nutribullet that has concluded in a negative outcome. (to us anyway)
I bought my husband a nutribullet for Christmas and he loves it. He loves it so much that he wanted another blade in case
the one that came with it broke. It just so happens that when I went online to register it for the warranty, lo and behold,
there was an extended warranty and also an offer to by another extractor blade and cups! I could get a separate cup for me! Yea!
I went ahead and ordered the extended 25 year warranty and at the same time, the blade and cups. Well, they arrived the other day.
When I opened the package, I was thrilled until I saw that the blade wasn't like the one that came with the Nutribullet when we
purchased it. It is of a lesser quality. The base is constructed differently as are the blades. We tried it out and compared it to the blade that
came with the Nutribullet and it didn't do as good as a job pulverizing an apple in a green smoothie. I wasn't thrilled in the first
place that the blade was a cheaper blade because I shelled out the extra money to get the thing. I called Nutribullet's customer service
and had to get a call back because the service was extra busy. I had no problem with that seeing that Christmas just happened.
I got the call and talked to a representative. I explained that we got a cheaper quality blade and that we weren't happy with
the new blade because it appeared to be a cheaper construct and quality. He proceeded to put me on hold and then came
back, asked for the serial # and told me that the blade sent was the blade that was supposed to be sent, it matched our Nutribullet.
I told him it wasn't even near to the quality of the blade that came with the Nutribullet and he told me that the blade has been
redesigned and was better. Well, it's not. The blades are different, the bottom is different and the way it is put together is different.
The representative then said that there was nothing he could do for me and basically, that was it. I told him that I was thus going
to post this ordeal on Facebook, some internet blogs and other sites that deal with the NutriBullet so that other people would be aware
of this before purchasing another extra blade for themselves. He acted like he couldn't have cared less and hung up.
I just want to let people know before they shell out the extra $$ for this set that it is NOT exactly like the blade that comes with
the Nutribullet that is first purchased. I posted pictures of the two blades so everyone can see the differences between the two.
The blade on the right is the one that came with the Nutribullet we purchased and the blade on the left is the extra blade
we ordered off their site whehn we registered it's warranty info.
Feel free to spread the word because I have a feeling this will never be resolved. They made their money off of us and that
is/was their goal.
Thanks Nutribullet! I think your competition is starting to look better to us next time we purchase a blending system.
Both my first gift one and the replacement model leaked within 7 days. It's not worth my time to say more.
I am a vegetarian and this little machine just added more value to my life. I love the fact that it is easy to use and clean. As for the leakage, I did not experience any because I did not fill pass the max line. It's very important that you follow the manufacturer's instructions. The natrual healing foods book is AWESOME. It's filled with recipes and alot of health information that is beneficail to using your nutribullet. How could anyone ponder on purchasing this affordable health machine. Stop thinking about it and just DO IT!! You are going to be healthier because you did. :-)
I actually just got the NutriBullet at Bed Bath & Beyond today. So far, I am impressed. I know I just got it, but I can already tell that it is better than a traditional blender. It is more compact and convenient than a blender or juicer, and it truly is really easy to clean, all you need to do is rinse and dry the container/cup used. I love that there are a few different sized cups and that they had lids, which makes this great to carry around drinks/smoothies that you make. I just made 2 blasts, one for now, one for later at work. I mixed spinach, an orange, blueberries, strawberries, and a banana (with water) together. SO great! Tastes awesome and I dont even taste the spinach at all. For my second blast, I added apple and carrot and a TINY bit of Stevia to make it a bit more sweet (as a treat). I chose to get mine at Bed Bath & Beyond because I was able to use their 20% off coupon also. I like that the company (that makes the NutriBullet) gives you a 12 month warranty (15 month if you register your bullet online). I felt guilty spending about 80$ on this, but I know I will use it pretty much everyday. I would recommend this!!!!
This is a great machine if you are going use it once per week. unfortunately I used mine twice each day and it was broken within " 3 " months. The first thing you will notice is that while using the Nutribullet after a month it will start to sound rather coarse with a lot of vibration.
Then comes the leaking at the bottom of the cups, once this happen it just become a big mess with food leaking inside the motor . Overall this product is just horrible, if it was priced reasonably I could classify it as a disposable product and I would just have to realize that it needs replacing at least 3 times per year.
I wouldn't recommend buying this item because as nice as it seem withing the first month of using , it will definitely break your heart within a few weeks after.
Also Nutribullet's customer service is so horrible , don't even try taking up your phone hoping to speak to someone about resolving a problem. No matter what time you call you will get the recording that say " Due to the overwhelming demand for Nutribullet , BS BS " . What they really want to say is " Due to the overwhelming returns we are dodging your calls.
