My Nutribullet died on Sunday. For the past few months the motor kept running after I removed the cup and blade. Then on Sunday the cup became irreversibly wedged into the base. I could not get it out to save my life. Hubs left for a business trip 45 minutes prior to this disaster so there was no big, strong man around to help me. I knew the contents in the bullet, namely almond milk, would spoil, so in a fit of exasperation I trashed the whole thing, whipped out my circa 1980 blender and made a new protein shake.
I liked the convenience of having a small appliance for my protein shakes and occasional smoothies. But I don’t like the idea of throwing down another Benjamin Franklin to replace it. I did a bit of on-line browsing and I see that the Nutribullet’s cousin, the Magic Bullet, is about half the price…and has less than half the motor power.
And so, friends, I want your opinions. Have you compared the Nutribullet with the Magic Bullet? Is the Nutri worth the extra cash? Did I just buy a lemon the first go-around?
I’ll be grateful for your comments.
