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.

Scam/same as anything else PURE BS!
They say it's different, of course it is because they are comparing it to HUGH blenders and juicers so no wonder it's different. I tried the "magic bullet" that's garbage as well it broke in the first week and it was very hard to clean. They are right about Nutrition, etc but that's only because of what your putting in there. You can do that with any blender.
I'm getting Pure Nutrition :)
I'm getting optimal nutrition. I have 30 year old flat woren down teeth. Dentures. I chew chew and swallow. I know that using my Nurtibullet is getting beyond my 100% of the goodness from the foods. I'm a Terminal Cancer survivor. Thank you Lord Jesus, Doctors and Nutribullet. Its truly in a class of its own. So easy to use and clean up a breeze. Smoothie to milkshake consistency depending how much juicy fruit or liquids you add. Genius appliance!!!!!! Bravo' Nutribullet! Mine arrived in Setpember 2012. Never want to be without it :)
Great Power and Overall Quality, Little Leaks Here and There
I've had my Nutribullet for almost two weeks now. I've been using it up to five times a day to make blasts for myself and my parents.
In terms of "extracting" power, this little machine surprised me! I didn't think it would even break down the little chia seeds...but it did! Only ingredient that it can't seem to break down are dried dates. They get chopped up pretty small, but the pieces are still significant enough to sink to the bottom after a full minute of blending. Maybe I just need to blend longer? (The dates problem is weird since the Nutribullet has no problem pulverizing brocolli heads, whole baby carrots, nuts, etc.)
Also, I've had a few minor leaks. But that's from me getting over-zealous and trying to pack as much goodness in there as I can. After those few incidents, I make sure to not pass the MAX LINE. No problems since then.
I did get the warranty online just to make sure I can get a replacement if this baby breaks. Not taking that chance...since I do love this product so far!
Nutri bullet great concept but
I received my nutribullet, I followed the instructions carefully.
I never over filled the cup or placed the lid too tight.I saw that if you
extract it for more than about 30 seconds at a time, the cyclonic action will loosen the lid thus causing the spill.So, I extract for about 15 seconds ,then check the lid to make sure it's still secure.I repeat for about four times.I totally agree that this machine should have been tested
better before throwing it on the market.I love the nutriblast when it's time to drink it, but I shouldn't have to cross my fingers ,for no spills this time.
Great Product! Don't order online!
I think the product is awesome, but don't order online. The return number didn't even work and website looks to be built by amateurs. Go to Target, Wal-mart or other retail stores. You'll save $20-$30 dollars!! I agree with Rkhal. I feel a bit ripped off as I ordered two!
Bought while Christmas shopping
Background: I've gained 20 pounds in 5 years (5 yr anniversary and I know my wedding weight). Recognition that I'm too chunky has been on my mind. I'm a teacher and I constantly crave sugar rushes. I've started my day with 4 cups of heavy-creamed coffee for 25 years. I went to the doctor over Christmas break and stepped on a scale....ugh....165 was written next to my name. It affected me so completely that I forgot why I was there when the doctor came in.
While browsing kitchen gadgets for stocking stuffers, I saw this mixer system. On a whim, I paid $99 and bought it for myself. I came home and started reading reviews which were extreme pro and extreme con.
MY EXPERIENCE: I've been drinking breakfast every day since I bought it. Spinach, pineapple, orange, and frozen blackberries or blueberries with water. The berries camouflage the spinach and it's a delicious drink in my opinion. I also cut my coffee to 1 cup per day. Now I really appreciate it and savor it. I've always thought I couldn't start my day without coffee and that it perked me up. Now I realize how much it drug me down. I have MUCH more energy now that I drink fruit and veggie breakfast. I eat raisins or a small apple at 10am (conference time) and I have lunch at 11:30am. Another snack at 3pm and dinner at 6:30pm. I usually have hot tea (vs cupcake or dessert I used to have, ugh, I was in bad habits). I HAVE NOT EXERCISED AT ALL, but I plan to start soon since my pulled neck muscle has healed.
The nutri-mixer is simply a tool. It works great and it's a breeze to clean. I leave it on my counter. I've tried many recipes now. Coconut milk + a banana = delicious quick protein drink that fills me up. I need to get chai and flax to throw in, but I was waiting to see if I actually used the mixer before committing. I weigh 161 now and my eating habits are under control. I expect to be back to 145 by March but I'll continue drinking "breakfast gardens" since my energy levels are so much higher. I am 45 years old. If this helps even one person get motivated to regain control of your eating then it was worth typing.
Spleen on right side of body ?? But love the Nutribullet.
I have a magic bullet but decided I needed the extra power of the Nutribullet for my veggie smoothies. I have a juicer but don't like composting the pulp ( you can't use as the pulp in cooking). I do love it. However, I was amused when looking at the book Natural Healing Foods, that came with it. On page 18 it shows the components of the circulatory system. The picture shows the spleen on the RIGHT side of the body where the liver and gall bladder are. Not a very good job of editing guys!
I received one these for Christmas and have been making smoothies 2 to 3 times a day since. My 13 year old daughter uses it daily as well and we love experimenting with different flavor combinations. Instead of adding water, we always use some sort of juice or crystal light (I know, artificial sweetener...oh, my!) I just made one today with kale and mango then added fruit punch flavored crystal light...it was delicious. As others have stated DO NOT OVERFILL as it will leak if you do! Not only is it an easy way to get extra nutrients it's fun trying out different recipes. So much daily use and no problems....I would definitely recommend the bullet!
Nothing To Complain About So Far
I purchased this exactly 6 days ago and have been using it every day since. So far I have not experienced any issues mentioned in the negative comments. It did have a weird smell the first time I put it to use and I had asked my friend if she had the same with her, but she said no. The smell is no longer as strong as that first time. I use it every day and make 3 smoothies, for 3 people in my household. I haven't noticed anything major yet as I'm still in the early stages, but I do notice that I am not as tired during the day. I work your regular 9-5 office job and after lunch time I simply get tired and feel like I need a nap. Not this week!!! I am feel more alert and have the energy to go to the gym after work.
I don't really follow their recipes from the book. I actually put as much fruit as I can in there along with the spinach and it tastes delicious. Haven't tried other green veggies yet.
I really hope I don't have any issues with mine. I really love this thing so far!
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!!!!
Love it, so far!
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!
NOT GOOD TO ORDER ONLINE
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?
Broke on first use
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.
Died after 1 1/2 mos
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........
Does NOT LOOK RIGHT!!!
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 !
Good product - bad customer service
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!!
Broke after 3 weeks
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?
