It is quite rare that I actually write a review. Problem is, I’m a fussy person and unless something is really good, bordering on excellent, I will not take the trouble to review it at all. So what’s the best blender for smoothies? In my mind there’s no contest.
A little video on the NutriBullet 600
Reviewing….The NutriBullet Blender
So, what am I reviewing, well the great NutriBullet blender, one of which I have had for over 6 months now and it’s the best small kitchen gadget I’ve got. This little beauty was introduced to me by my son-in-law who was making us all a tomato soup. We were chatting in the kitchen whilst he was playing head chef!
So easy to clean!
I was taken by how easy it was to clean the blade and the food container that it screws onto. He just unscrewed the blade and ran it under the tap for a few seconds, then did the same for the container. The model he has is the NutriBullet 600. The 600 stands for the size of the motor which is 600watts.
It’s so fast!
As soon as I got home, I ordered one, even before I’d made a cuppa. It came the next day and the first thing I did was chop up all my ingredients for a soup. Celery, carrots, potatoes, a few lentils and of course an onion. It will soon become apparant when you first use this blender, that it is very powerful. In fact, if you want to have a chunky soup, you’d better only blend for a nano second because this unit is so fast, your ingredients will be chopped double quick time.
The best for smoothies
The next morning, after going to Aldi for some fruit, I made my husband and I, a breakfast smoothie. This is where the NutriBullet comes into its own. Banana, strawberries, blueberries, some organic yoghurt, an apple, a few almonds, some organic oats and a dash of milk. Using the larger vessel and making sure not to fill it over the marker, I whizzed it for a few seconds and voila, a lovely tasting fruity breakfast with all the fibre and goodness included and no waste at all. The nuts were pulverized into oblivion but you could still taste them…yummy!
My most used gadget
I use this unit every day. Chopping onions is very good, no more weeping and stinging eyes. I don’t hand chop anything anymore, the blender is so easy to use, it makes cooking a pleasure. Don’t you just hate the chopping part!
Baby’s sunday roast
This blender really came into its own when we had visitors with a young child. Usually he had one of those cow and gate junior foods. They are quite convenient but personally I’d rather make my own. So here we are about to have a Sunday roast and the baby food’s been forgotten. Never mind, I said, I’ll blend a little of our dinner. A bit of roast potato, a piece of carrot, some peas and then the chicken. I popped a little gravy in and in 2 seconds dinner was served for junior. My God, you should have seen that child go. He ate his food quicker than our dogs do! Our visitors bought a Nutribullet the next day!
Where did they buy it from? John Lewis of course. Most prospective buyers will generally only buy from a company who has at least 4 stars out of 5 from its reviewing customers. The company I advocate is a 5 star company all round! That company is IMHO the UK’s superior departmental store John Lewis. I can’t find any other store selling this item at this price and you get so much more from John Lewis including a complimentary 2 year guarantee! Plus their price promise, ‘never knowingly undersold’.
Wedding present, birthday gift, Christmas is coming!
This would be the ideal gift as a wedding present. Perhaps a Christmas gift for the chef or even a birthday present for someone who loves to cook, or someone who doesn’t. It saves so much time and makes cooking a pleasure.
The secret of the NutriBullet is its powerful 600 watt motor, combined with bullet cyclonic action, that forces everything through the turbo extractor blades at an incredible 20,000 RPM, breaking down and pulverising stems, seeds and skins where some of the usually neglected essential nutrition lies. There is the 900 model but IMHO the 600 does all that you need and it’s much cheaper to buy.
Get healthy and get your vitamins and minerals
The sleek and compact NutriBullet is the superfood nutrition extractor loved by millions around the UK. Take charge and feel the tremendous effects that real, nutrition-extracted whole food can have on you and your loved ones health and wellbeing.
Unlike everyday juicers and less powerful bullet blenders, the NutriBullet completely breaks down ingredients into a pulp free, delicious smoothie. It bursts open seeds, cracks through stems, and shreds tough skins to get the most out of your fruit and vegetables. The super powerful 600w motor and cyclone technology produces a better, smoother smoothie without all the pulp and bits that you get left over by a regular juicer or less powerful bullet blender.
So easy to use!
The NutriBullet system is so easy to use, simply load the container, place on to the power base and twist the container to the on position. When blended, twist the container back to off and remove from the base. Don’t overfill the cup, there is a fill line. If you do, it will leak because of the pressure involved. The powerful 600W motor and cyclone technology produces a better, smoother consistency without all the pulp and its extremely easy to clean. Simply rinse under the tap and its ready to use again.
I think the makers of NutriBullet have not emphasised enough the versitility of this machine. I list below what I use is for:
- Chopping all vegetables for soups with no more onion eyes!
- All veggie is put through the Nutribullet for stews and cassaroles; simple!
- Baby and toddler food is easy. They can have exactly what you have, no more buying special food for them. The food is healthier, with no unwanted additives and they just love it! They get used to greens, veggies and other foods kids tend to shy away from. No fussy eaters in this family!
- Chopping nuts and seeds for toppings on puddings, porridge, yoghurts and sundaes.
- Breakfast is always tasty with such an array of smoothies to experiment with.
- Last but not least this gadget can change your life. Within the nutrition handbook that comes with NutriBullet, there is an amazing 6 week plan called “The Superfood 6 Week Transformation Plan”.
