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.

Won't last for long
I bought two of these in the last year and a half. I did not get extra warranty because I did not believe that it would be easy to get it fixed or replaced. I figured I would get a run around and after reading the reviews here I was right. I paid about $100.00 for both of the ones I bought. I had a standard silver one and a red one. I really loved them both at first, but they did not last long enough for the cost. The first one even when plugged in would not get power. I had to really work hard to get the cup into the slot right on the second one and then when I did and it started working it started smoking. That really scared me because it looked like it could cause a fire, so I unplugged it and ran to the door and threw it outside.
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.
