I first stumbled on the Nutribullet system after desperately looking for a solution to my weight problems and lack of energy…
You’ll see why it’s not a blender and it’s also not a juicer.
When I first started to juice fruits and vegetables, I’ve bought a plastic juicer at a local store and it was a great deal.
But I’ve noticed that it’s taking me a lot of time to setup the equipment and clean it after use.
And if you’re going to work everyday, I just don’t have enough time to create my own juice from fruits and vegetables. Another thing that I’ve noticed with my juicer is that, I seem to be throwing away 90% of the nutrients from fruits and vegetables in the form of fiber.
It’s because juicing “squeezes” the extract but throws out the fiber, which most health professionals would say is very important to the health of your digestive system.
So after watching, reading, and researching more about the nutribullet, I thought I might give it a try.
So we went to several local stores that seems to be selling the Nutribullet and all of these stores were out of stock.
We had to drive for about an hour and a half just to go the next “big store” that might have the Nutribullet.
Still no success…
Finally we were able to get it via Amazon at a great price (currently the world’s largest online retailer). After a few days of waiting we were able to get it. I really can’t wait to try and test it out…
But before I continue, let me just share with you a quick clarification about a common misconception regarding the Nutribullet...
Is the Magic Bullet the same as the Nutribullet?
At first glance, you’ll notice that the Magicbullet logo is embedded in the power base motor of the Nutribullet. Although the magic bullet logo is in the power base, as long as it also has the Nutribullet logo in the main body, that’s a Nutribullet.
It is because the Magic Bullet is the main brand of these products, all from the same company.
The company has earlier released a smaller product called the “Magic bullet”.
Don’t get the smaller Magic Bullet (usually less than $50 today) because they are less powerful and they do not have the same motor as the Nutribullet.
Don’t make the mistake of getting one because if you think it will do the same job, it won’t.
If you’re interested in the details, I’ve written a more detailed article here comparing both products.
Here’s my First Impression on the NutriBullet
It’s smaller than I’ve thought and lighter too.
I’ve been accustomed with the HUGE sizes of my previous juicers and blenders (yes I have both). But The Nutribullet system is just a space saver.
Just make sure to keep it out of reach from children to prevent them from playing with it and plugging it to the electrical sockets causing unwanted injuries.
I’ve opened the box and immediately counted if all parts were present and if there were no missing or broken parts.
If there were any broken and missing parts, I’m sure you’ll be able to return and exchange it immediately whether you’ve purchased it online or in a local store.
