Tried a bunch of different mixers and “smoothie machines” and it really felt like you were eating your drink as they wouldn’t blend nuts or stems very well. Just like they say, this really does blend everything into a liquid, and does an excellent job doing so. I pack mine full of fruits, and vegetables, and top with sunflower seeds and goji berries and 20 seconds later all blended into a drink and tastes great! I read some reviews about leaks, which I’ve never had, but do think it’s important to follow the instructions on how to use it properly. Have one everyday for breakfast, and also some afternoons as a refreshing snack. There’s lots of recipes online but you soon find your own versions. Also it’s much better to use frozen fruit and veg as they last longer. I don’t like my drink too frozen or cold, so what I do is fill the container with all the frozen fruit I want, then leave them to thaw for an hour or so before I add the water and other ingredients.
I bought this product last year and it worked well for about a month. After that the area on the reverse of the blades started rusting extensively, to the point if it gets wet it drips rutsty water into my smoothie. No matter how tight I put the lid on the lid often comes off during blending (cup is not full) and spews smoothie all over the blender and kitchen. It is a hot mess. The little pins on the side of the cup are also dissolving. I had a Magic Bullet before this and I never had issues with rust or liquid spewing out of the cup all over while blending. It is a mess to clean up when there is protein shake everywhere and I am very disappointed in this product.
I absolutely love my NutriBullet Pro 900! And to get it for free was an extra bonus! It's fast, easy to use and has my 2 and 5 year old begging for smoothies! I was so impressed with all of the features, recipe book and additional cups/blades. It has made making multiple smoothies easy. And I love that it blends so smoothly. No chunks! Thanks NutriBullet!
