Are you trying to find the best Nutribullet to buy? Well, I've used them all and I'm here to give my recommendations. In this guide, we'll compare all the best Nutribullets and Magic Bullet models to help you find the best one from my personal experience.

Best NutriBullet You Can Buy (In Preference Order)

NutriBullet ZNBF30500Z Blender Combo 1200 Watt, 1200W, Dark Gray

The Nutribullet Blender Combo is our first pick for this Best Nutribullet blenders guide because it can do almost anything you'd want a blender to do besides heat up liquids. The 1200 watt motor is powerful enough for almost any blender related job and the tamper will ensure that ingredients never get stuck to the side.

Specifications

  • Motor Strength: The Nutribullet Blender Combo comes with a powerful 1200 watt motor. This is more powerful than most of the other blenders
  • Warranty: It comes with a 1-year warranty like all of the other blenders. While it's not the best in the industry, you're still getting an overall great value.
  • Jar and Cup Compatibility: The best part about this blender is that it can use a wide spectrum of cup and jar sizes.

Best Features

The best things about this blender are the 1200 watt motor, the tamper, and the wide array of cups that you can use. Having the versatility to switch from one single-serve up to a large 64 oz jar is something that very few blenders in the market can claim. This type of versatility is typically reserved for bullet Ninja blenders which we've covered at length in other articles.

NutriBullet Pro - 13-Piece High-Speed Blender/Mixer System with Hardcover Recipe Book Included (900 Watts)

The 900 is our second pick for the best Nutribullet because we believe it delivers a fantastic bang for your buck. The 900 watt motor is powerful enough for almost any ingredients that you could ever want to do. The lip rings also make it really easy to enjoy smoothies right out of the cups!

Specifications

Motor Strength: If you haven't guessed based on the name, this Nutribullet comes with a 900 watt motor.

This is the same amount of power as the Nutri Ninja Auto IQ. It's less powerful than the Nutribullet Rx, but more so than the standard Nutribullet 600.

It's powerful enough for most blending jobs. We often use ours over our Vitamix simply because of its personal blender size or if we only want to make one serving.

Warranty: The Nutribullet Pro 900 comes with a one year warranty. Given its price point, we think this is fair.

Additionally, should something go wrong with the stainless steel blades or cups that are not covered by warranty, it is possible to find replacements online.

Blade Design: Much like all blenders of this tier, they have stainless steel blades designed to pulverize and extract ingredients. This may sound cliche, but it's actually rather important. Combined with the powerful motor, properly designed blades will produce a blend that's emulsified and smooth. Older model blenders that chop rather than pulverize are going to give you uneven pieces and ice chunks. This can be kind of unpleasant if you're blending ingredients such as kale. Thankfully, the Nutribullet Pro 900 is better than that with its 6-point extractor blade.

The Nutribullet 900 blade is a bit dull to the touch, but it doesn't need to be sharp to do its job.

Accessories (may vary based on package)

Like all of the Nutribullet products, you get a bunch of awesome accessories.

  • Flip Top To Go Lids: This resealable lid covers the entire top of the blender and has a small circular opening that flips open and closed. Ideal for preventing spills.
  • Cup Lip Ring: Useful if you'd like to sip directly from the cup without having your lips touch the twisted edges.  
  • Handled Cup Lip Ring: This is just like the lip ring, except with a convenient handle! It's good if you have small hands and can't easily grip the entire cup.
  • 24 oz Blender Cup: A cup that you can attach to your blender and drink out of later!
  • 32 oz. Blender Cup: This one is a larger cup, but essentially the same thing as above.

It also comes with their Pocket Nutritionist, but that's not really part of the blender itself. Plus, we haven't really used ours much.

NutriBullet Rx N17-1001 Blender, Black

The Rx is our third pick for the best Nutribullet because it's so powerful and makes soups with its heating cycle. The 1700 watt motor is the most powerful across the entire Nutribullet product line. It's even one of the most powerful blenders on the market!

While we don't find the soup function an absolute necessity, it may be the first choice for others.

Specifications

Motor Strength: The Nutribullet Rx comes with a 1700 watt motor. This is nearly double the power of the 900. That being said, its powerful enough for pretty much anything. Thick smoothies, nut butters, you name it.

As one of the cornerstone features of this model, it's powerful enough to generate enough friction to make hot soup.

Warranty: This unit comes standard with a one year warranty which was a bit low in our opinion.

We personally think that a heavy-duty higher-end blender like the Rx should come with a bit longer of a warranty.

Blade Design: The stainless steel blades of the Nutribullet Rx is different than the extractor and milling blades of the previous units. It has four blades which seem to be a bit sharper than the blades on the previous models. 

To be honest, we're not 100% sure why they'd go with the sharper blades as the old ones worked as expected.

Accessories (may vary based on package)

Aside from the power base and blade of the unit, the Nutribullet Rx comes included with the following:

  • Soup Pitcher with 2-Piece Lid: This is the only Nutribullet that is designed to make hot soups, but you can only do it with the soup cup. This cup is specifically designed with ventilation to reduce pressure build up while blending. Very important.
  • Short Cup (30 oz) w/ Lip rings: A medium-sized blending cup with the lip ring to prevent your lips from touching the twisted edges while sipping.
  • 45 Oz Blender Cup: This cup is best for making blends for multiple people at one time. It also comes with a pitcher lid to make it easy to pour.
  • Blade Cleaning Brush: If you're having trouble cleaning under the blades with a sponge, the cleaning brush will make the process easier as it is able to fit in tight spaces.
  • Blade Remover Tool: Just in case you need to remove the blade to clean it, it includes a tool to do so properly.

One important note about the cups in the Nutribullet Rx is that they come with handles already attached to them. This is unique as the other Nutribullet cups have the handle as a separate entity that you have to attach.

It also comes with a user guide and recipe book, but there's not much to say about those.

Best Features

This is the only Nutribullet with hands free technology.

It's great because you can start blending a smoothie and then move onto other tasks such as cleaning up. By the time you're done doing that, your smoothie will be ready to go!

Another great feature is obviously the soup function. You can literally have dinner ready in 7 minutes (excluding any pre-blend prep work).

This is the only Nutribullet designed to do this.

It's also real cool that it comes with such a large blending cup. This means it can function as a single server blender as well as a multi-serve one.

4. Nutribullet 600 Series


Nutribullet 600W Nutrient Extractor, 6pcs

The Nutribullet 600 is great for the user who wants less than thick smoothies and blends. It's the original Nutribullet! Although it's not as powerful, it still delivers on that promise, but I think you're better off splurging for the Pro 900.

Specifications

Motor Strength: The classic Nutribullet comes with a 600 watt motor. It's powerful enough to do smoothies, green juices (with pulp), and things of that nature. 

However, it's not as powerful as the 900 or the Nutribullet Rx. If you like making super thick smoothies and want something with a motor you can push to its limits, we would recommend the 900 at the very least.

Warranty: The Nutribullet 600 comes with a one-year limited warranty. Not too bad for the price of the unit, but shipping costs do come into play. As with the others, it's quite easy to find replacement parts online as the 600 watt and the 900 watt blades and cups are compatible.

Blade Design: The Nutribullet 600 actually comes with two sets of blades.

  • Extractor Blade: This is the six-pronged blade that you see on the other Nutribullet models on this list.
  • Milling Blade: The milling blade is designed to mill things like seeds and break them into a fine powder. In our experience, we found that we always defaulted to the standard extractor blade and never took out the milling one too much.

Accessories (may vary based on package)

In addition to the base and the two blades, you actually get a fair amount of accessories with the Nutribullet 600.

  • Two 18 Oz. Blender Cups: Short cups ideal for single servings.
  • One 32 Oz Blender Cups: One tall cup that could be used for one big Nutribullet serving or for two people.
  • One Lip Ring w/ Handle: Screwing this onto the top of the cup will give you a comfortable spot to sip as well as a handle that help you hold the Nutribullet.
  • One Lip Ring: Just like the accessory above except without the handle.
  • Two Resealable Lids: Great for storing a smoothie or a sauce after making it. Allows you to wash the blades and still keep the contents covered.

Best Features

The best part of the 600 is that it comes with so many accessories, specifically three cups!

If you've got a family all doing blends then having multiple cups can super helpful.

Even though this Nutribullet doesn't have the most powerful motor on this list, it really is most likely all you'll need for the basics.

Magic Bullet Baby Bullet Baby Care System

I don't want to spend too much time on this one, but this is your top option if you want to make one batch of baby food and have the ability to store it in different cups. It allows you to make your baby high-quality food using fresh ingredients and make storage a breeze. But I wouldn't get it for a purpose outside of its intended use.

Specifications

Motor Strength: This one comes with a 200 watt motor. This will make it tough for ingredients that haven't been properly softened. Don't expect to make thick smoothies with frozen ingredients.

Warranty: Just like the rest of the blenders, this one comes with a 1-year warranty.

Dishwasher Safe: Most components of this model are dishwasher safe which is great for parents who are short on time!

Accessories (may vary based on package)

  • Batch bowl and lid: This is where you'll do your bulk blending.
  • Short cup with handles: Can be at later stages to eat out of or for blending smaller batches.
  • Silicone freezer tray: Allows you to prep for the week ahead.
  • Storage cups with date trackers: Store baby food in the fridge and keep track of exactly how old it is!

Best Features

The entire system is great to make sure your baby is always eating the freshest and best ingredients. From the freezer tray to the storage cups, it makes it really easy for busy parents to make sure they're feeding their babies nutrient-dense foods. You're basically paying for the storage system rather than the blender itself.

Why Buy a NutriBullet Blender?

Space Saving

One of the best things about NutriBullet blenders is their convenience. Unlike other large countertop blenders, most Nutribullet models are easy to store and won't' take up a ton of space on your countertop. For example, I'm able to put my Nutribullet Pro 900 in a small little cabinet after I'm done using it and take it back out just the same.

The problem with larger blender brands such as Vitamix and Blendtec is that they tend to become a permanent fixture on your kitchen counters. If you don't have the room for this, then getting a Nutribullet blender is a fantastic alternative especially considering they can do a lot of the same things.

Cost

Unlike other large blender brands, NutriBullet blenders won't cost you an arm and a leg. Despite this, I've found that they still perform well and last an extremely long time. For example, I've used my NutriBullet Pro 900 blender for over 5 years before I had to replace it. Considering what I paid for it at the time, I got an amazing deal - even compared to the Vitamix and Blendtec that I own.

Versatility

One of the fantastic things about NutriBullet blenders is that they are extremely versatile. Even if you get the standard NutriBullet with the 600 watts of power, it can do everything from smoothies to hummus inside the same cup.

Upgrade to the Nuitribullet Rx with its 1700 watt motor and you can even make hot soup and operate the blender hands-free. That's right, it can HEAT the ingredients!

If you decide to go with the Nutribullet Blender Combo you can blend in a wide range of sizes from a single-serve cup to a large blender jar.

Easy to Use

There are very few blender brands that are as easy to use as the Nutribullet. Many of them have a very simple interface or no interface at all. The classic Bullets allow you to simply press down to activate the pulse function and twist on to activate the blending cycle.

Blades

All NutriBullet blenders have amazing stainless steel blades. As far as blender blades go, they're also super easy to clean especially since many of them are dishwasher safe. From my experience, they're some of the best blades in the blender industry. Some models come with different types of blades (such as the extractor blade) that serve different purposes. Despite this, I find myself using the same one over and over again and don't find the need to swap out different ones as they suggest.

Different Types of NutriBullet Blenders

Classic NutriBullet

When we're talking about classic NutriBullets I'm mainly referring to the 600 watt motor Nutribullet 600 and the 900 watt motor base Nutribullet Pro 900.

Most of the packages come with the classic Nutribullet cups, lip rings, and lids that you can store or sip out of.

You could also consider the Nutribullet Balance as part of this group. However, it does not appear that the Nutribullet Balance is still in stock at many places. I wasn't a huge fan of this blender anyway because I didn't find the additional functionality to be all of that useful. It was also overkilled to have a 1200 watt motor on the classic Nutribullet base when the 900 watt motor is really all that you need.

Larger Nutribullet Blenders

The latest additions to the Nutribullet family are the Nutribullet Blender Combo and the Nutribullet Rx. These have larger cup/jar options and will take up slightly more counter space but have additional functionality such as the ability to blend hot liquids as well as smart technology.

NutriBullet FAQ

Can the Magic Bullet/Nutribullets Grind Coffee?

Absolutely! Any of the Nutribullet blenders on this list will make quick work of whole coffee beans.

 You can use either the milling blade or the extractor blade to get the job done.

Can the Magic Bullet or NutriBullet Blend Frozen Fruit and Ice?

Any of the Nutribullets on this list and blend ice and frozen fruit with enough liquid, but the Magic Bullet will struggle the most. That being said, it is important to understand that the more powerful the motor, the less liquid you'll need to make that happen.

See our test: Can the Nutribullet Crush Ice?

Can the Magic Bullet or NutriBullet Juice?

In the traditional sense of the word, juicing means that you're actually squeezing fruits and vegetables to get the juice out. You're then left with the pulp on one end and the juice on the other.

The Nutribullet blends and extracts everything into one smooth beverage. This means that you get the juice and the fiber rather than just the juice.

Can the Magic Bullet or NutriBullet Make Soup?

The Nutribullet Rx is the only one that can make hot soup in the actual blender. 

However, the other Nutribullets or Magic Bullet can make bases for soups, but not actually cook it within the container. You wouldn't want to do that anyway because it doesn't have anywhere to vent, so things could get dangerous.

So if you decide to get the Magic Bullet, 600 or the 900, just make the soup base and then heat it on the stove afterward.

With the Blender Combo, you can use hot liquids as long as you use the vented lid. However, it won't actually heat them up.

Can the NutriBullet Make Ice Cream?

Yes! You actually have two options when making ice cream in the Nutribullet or Magic Bullet. Either by adding enough liquid to blend or defrosting the fruit.

We love to make plant-based vegan ice cream in ours with frozen bananas, frozen cherries, and cocoa powder.

The Nutribullet 900 does a great job pulverizing all ingredients into a smooth soft-serve style ice cream with very little liquid. The tamper on the Blender Combo as well will make it very easy.

If you are using the 600 watt motor version, just know that you may have to defrost the fruit a little bit before blending.

Is the NutriBullet Balance Bluetooth Worth It?

The Nutribullet Balance allows users to sync the blender with an app that will help you build blender recipes and calculate your nutrient intake to meet your nutrition goals. However, I feel that this was a bit overkill and defeats the purpose of using a bullet blender: convenience. I wouldn't recommend the NutriBullet balance simply because you're not likely to ever use that functionality in your daily life.

Just because the Nutribullet Balance has more features doesn't necessarily make it easy to use compared to the others.

Can You Make Baby Food in the Nutribullet Pro?

The NutriBullet Pro or any of the blenders on this list can be used to make baby food. After all, they all have more powerful motors than the NutriBullet Baby Bullet.

The main thing is thinking about how you're going to store the baby food. The NutriBullet Baby Bullet comes with dedicated containers for refrigerating and freezing baby food. If you want to invest in a higher-end blender, you'll have to invest in this equipment separately.

What Are the Lip Rings and Flip Top Accessories?

The lip rings are basically little plastic rings that you can screw around onto the top of the NutriBullet cups. This makes it easy to sip from as if it's a regular cup. Otherwise, the edges on the top of the cup can be kind of rough on your mouth. 

However, if you're using the flip top you don't need to use the lip rings. The flip tops are a dedicate top that you can screw onto your NutriBullet cups that you can sip from slowly as if you're drinking from a bottle. If you do want to drink from the flip top, make sure your final blend is a smooth consistency otherwise it will come through in chunks.

Do You Really Use the Recipe Book?

If you're new to blending, the recipe book is great inspiration. After you've been blending for a while, you'll probably have all of the recipes in your head and you won't need it anymore.

Wrap Up: Which NutriBullet Should You Buy?

If we had to pick one Nutribullet Blender that was the best NutrIbullet then our favorite is the Nutribullet Blender Combo.

This machine is the only one that can handle such a wide variety of sizes and has a tamper. Hands down, that makes it my favorite.
