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.

Since you are not suppose to clean/remove the blade part & gasket, I started running rinses of vinegar & water and noticed after doing so that there would always be food particles break loose (floating through the water) while cleaning. Believe that flax seeds, etc. & some food particles get trapped under the little plastic gasket. So by running the vinegar & then about 4-5 plain water rinses through a cycle, at some point you will stop seeing the food particles. Love this little machine :)
It was LOVE at 1st use. Initially! The 1st 2 Nutribullets I bought from Bed Bath and Beyond. Cups were cracked and pieces missing. But i was determined to get this product based on suggestions from my friends who LOVE it as well. Finally got a Nutribullet with no damages or previous use. Worked lovely for about 2 months now. I have used it most mornings for my Green juice. Withing the last week. It has become harder to turn the cup and start the blending. Yesterday It started blending but the motor continued when i removed the cup..I had to unplug the unit. Im pretty much Devestated and Lonely..I miss my Nutribullet. I really want to replace it...BUT...am I REALLY THAT CRAZY. ..POSSIBLY..I wont reccommend this product to anyone again..Too risky.....gonna rtn it and see what happens..If I can ever get customer service to answer my call.....
Does what it claims to do
This is only the second product review I've ever written. I have a tight budget, and so I carefully research pricier items before purchase.
I ordered my NB from Target, and have been using it daily for the last month for my veggie/fruit smoothies! My teenagers use it often as well.
My first observation is that the blades are, indeed, different than those in my quality blender (it comes with two, by the way- the other for milling seeds and nuts). The unit is not too bulky, and doesn't take up too much counter space, which I like.
I've put every type of fruit and veggie in the NB, fresh and frozen, and it comes out wonderfully every time! Much better than my blender.
It comes with user friendly instructions and information- very helpful for someone just beginning new healthy eating habits. I would strongly advise following the instructions to avoid any problems, although I have not had any in spite of occasionally overfilling it.
Clean-up could not be easier!!! Basically a rinse-off of the blade unit and container will suffice most of the time. This morning I made my breakfast smoothie, rinsed off the two parts, then puréed some cauliflower for lunch. One more rinse off, and I was done and cleaned up in less than 10 min.
I quite honestly don't know why some have had a bad experience with this unit. I love mine! It's helped me stick to my healthy eating plans (I get at least 4 servings of fruits/veggies per smoothie), in such a convenient way. It's not a scam! It does what it claims to do!
Before I bought the Nutribullet, I read a bunch of reviews. Some praising it, and some hating it. I didn't pay attention to the negative comments and decided to buy it. Oh boy, I should have listened.
This is a POS to be honest. All the "blast" drinks are absolutely nasty. Tastes really bad and looks really bad too. This nutribullet doesn't extract anything. It's like you drink and eat at the same time because it leaves a bunch of chunks in there. No matter how long you press on it; 2-3 minutes which is already a very long time, it still doesn't make the drink smooth. Try to chew chunks of spinach and orange at the same time. YUCK!
This is not worth it and I will return it.
dont waste your moola!! blender is the same s*&^
dont buy this garb, the wont honer your extended warrenty and after a month its broken, n difficult . it gets worn down after 20 uses!!! also i tryed the blender and its the same consistancy!!! its all in your head if you like it.. same as the blender!!! and also i was in love with it for a few days than noticed how annoying it is!! i wish i would not have wasted over 120 freakin bukz on this shiz!!!
Plastic will crack
Please beware of the plastic in the containers. When the containers are scratched they leach BPS and eventually crack and containers start to leak. The Nutribullet may be BPA free but not BPS free. BPS is now used instead of BPA. BPS is also an endocrine disrupter to the same of possibly worse degree than BPA.
Non Durable and Super Poor Customer Service
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.
Making it easy to eat my fruit and veggies!
I am so impressed with this machine. Small, compact easy to setup and put away. It is also very easy to clean. Rinse out the cup and the blade and you are done. So easy to use too. Put in some green veggie at bottom, various fresh fruits and berries next, then I put some almonds on top. Fill to max line with water. Then the best part turn over put on nutribullet and it is one almost before you can say nutri bullet. I pour it into a large glass and then rinse the cup and blade piece right away. It cleans in about 10 sec under water. Truly amazingly easy and I am one to not want to deal with parts and pieces. This device exceeded my expectations. I have been adding so many fresh fruits and vegetables to my diet and I feel great! I am a busy guy and I have bad eating habits. I would never take the time to eat spinach, apples, pears...but with this I am good to go rel quick. Also unlike juicers I am eating the whole fruit and veggie. Benefiting from the fiber too. I can't say enough about this device I am very happy.
I also have not had any leaking issues that others report. Maybe it is because I am very careful not to over fill the cup. Don't go over the max line with food or water.
I have high hopes with this thing! Can't wait for my next drink!
Replacing extractor blade after 8 months
Have been using my Nutribullet almost daily for just over 8 months. For at least a couple months it has been making a horrendous noise when using the extractor blade. Finally called customer service today to see what they would do for me. Since the unit is still under warranty they agreed to replace the blade assembly for shipping cost of $2.99. Good thing I ordered it direct or there would have been a hassle providing proof of purchase from a retailer. Overall I like the way it works but am pretty disappointed the bearing in the blade has worn out with less than a year of mileage on it. Should be designed to take the use, after all they are trying to sell a lifestyle of using the unit daily.
A horror story
My wife got socked in with the infomercial. She called to order the damn bullet with out my permission and they answer right away and took her order and credit card. When the thing arrived, it performed as well as my blender, but no better. It can only make single servings, it has many pieces that take lots of space and it does not replace the blender. I called customer service to return it and then they took many days to return my call. I give zero star to this unnecessary item and negative ten stars to the customer service. I recommend not to ever buy this product.
