Vitamix vs Nutribullet Rx vs Pro 900 Summary
After looking at all the models and blending hundreds of different recipes with each blender brand, here are my recommendations...
Top Pick for Convenience
Nutribullet Pro 900
The Nutribullet Pro 900 is the perfect balance of affordability, power and function.
If you're looking for a really solid personal blender and have a smaller budget - that's what I'd go for.
It's powerful, easy to use, and is great for basic blends like smoothies, salad dressings and even dry grinding.
The warranty is only one year, but I think it's a fair compromise given everything it comes with and the price point.
If you're looking for a comparable Vitamix - I highly recommend the Explorian E310. If not, you can also check out my other reviews for the best nutribullet options.
Because of it's smaller size and no-frills design, the Vitamix Explorian E310 is my favorite pick out of every Nutribullet and Vitamix model.
It's not as convenient in terms of to-go cups as the Nutribullets are, but it's powerful and affordable.
The E310 is slighty smaller (48 oz jar) than most other Vitamix blenders, making it as ideal for a single person as a Nutribullet would be.
With a 5-year warranty, you know it's going to last you a long time.
What About the Nutribullet Rx?
I think the Rx is great blender in itself -- its got a lot of power and really awesome accessories. Nutribullet hot soup capabilities
The warranty is just way too short for the price range.
If I'm going to be paying a lot of money for a blender, I like knowing that I'm going to be using it for a while.
Unless you can score a really good deal

When it comes to smoothies, the Nutribullet Rx and Nutribullet Pro 900 are great.
However, I wouldn’t recommend the Magic Bullet or Nutribullet 600.
My Pro 900,on the other hand, has enough power to make thick smoothies with ease.
The Nutribullet Rx is even more powerful than that.
Now, any Vitamix is going to make smoothies without breaking a sweat.
But for the sake of simplicity and affordability – I highly recommend looking into the Explorian E310.
It’s powerful enough for all the usual Vitamix tasks (even hot soup) but has a smaller container and as more efficient for making smoothies for 1-2 people.
Let me be clear that neither the Vitamix or Nutribullets can juice without extra help.
So with either blender, you’d need a cheesecloth or really thin mesh to remove the pulp from the juice.
With those steps, both the Nutribullet and Vitamix can juice.
For the sake of convenience and small footprint I’d recommend the Nutribullet Rx or NutriBullet Pro - 13-Piece High-Speed Blender/Mixer System with Hardcover Recipe Book Included (900 Watts)
But if it’s in your budget, counter-top Vitamix models like the 5300 would be a better choice, simply because it’s bigger.
Since these steps are time consuming having a bigger vessel is important.
In summary, if you’re looking for the convinience and price-range of the Bullet blender line – get the NutriBullet Pro - 13-Piece High-Speed Blender/Mixer System with Hardcover Recipe Book Included (900 Watts)
You can get the Nutribullet Rx, but give it’s usually price point I strongly believe that you splurge on the Vitamix E310 or even a Vitamix 5300 Blender, Professional-Grade, 64 oz. Low-Profile Container, Black (Renewed) Both a great bang for your buck and have long warranties.
