NutriBullet 600 watts High-Speed Blender

NutriBullet 600 watts blender

TheNutriBul­let, 600 watts machine, is avail­able in 3 pack­ages — 8‑piece, 12-piece, and 14-piece sets. All pack­ages come with the iden­ti­cal 600 watts motor base unit and a dif­fer­ent selec­tion of cups, blade attach­ments, lids, and pro­mo­tion­al mate­ri­als, so the typ­i­cal NutriBul­let set includes:
  • Pow­er Base Unit with 600 watts motor;
  • Pul­ver­iz­ing Blade and Milling Blade for 12-piece and 14-piece sets and only Pul­ver­iz­ing Blade for the 8‑piece set;
  • 24 oz. and 32 oz. poly­car­bon­ate cups (num­ber of each cups depend on the package);
  • Selec­tion of dif­fer­ent types of lip rings and lid;
  • Pock­et Nutri­tion­ist Guide, User Man­u­al, and Heal­ing Book (selec­tion depends on the package).

The NutriBul­let, as the major­i­ty of oth­er per­son­al type machines, does not have a con­trol pan­el. It is oper­at­ed at one speed by lock­ing the cup against the base unit in run­ning posi­tion, and in order to stop oper­a­tion, users have to release the locked mode. Although lim­it­ed speed choice does not allow much flex­i­bil­i­ty over the blend­ing process, fans of sin­gle-serve gad­gets do not mind this problem.

This machine also comes with two or three con­tain­ers depend­ing on the pack­age; the cups are made from a not very high-qual­i­ty poly­car­bon­ate mate­r­i­al and do not stress, and tem­per­a­ture resis­tance makes them prone to crack­ing and leaking.

It is also equipped with remov­able blade assem­blies, the 12-piece and 14 –piece pack­ages come with two sets of blades for liq­uids and dry ingre­di­ents that allow them to process a bit wider range of recipes. The 8‑piece set has only a pul­ver­iz­ing type blade that is intend­ed for pro­cess­ing liq­uid food. NutriBul­let blade assem­blies are not well made and often have dura­bil­i­ty issues.

This blender is sup­posed to per­form the fol­low­ing functions:

  • Smooth­ie, it blends decent qual­i­ty drinks only from soft ingre­di­ents, green smooth­ies from tough and leafy veg­gies will pul­ver­ize into grainy con­sis­ten­cy drinks;
  • Crush­es ice only with added enough liq­uid, is not able to process iced into snow cone consistency;
  • Not designed to process hot liquids;
  • It is suit­able only for light puree­ing, chop­ping, and food prep tasks and will make sim­ple sal­ad dress­ing, mix­es, and salsas;
  • Suit­able for grind­ing and milling only for soft ingre­di­ents, but will han­dle cof­fee beans.

Besides, the Mag­ic Bul­let 600 watts comes with only a 1‑year lim­it­ed war­ran­ty; Mag­ic Bul­let cus­tomer ser­vice has a bad rep­u­ta­tion among cus­tomers for being not helpful.

Nutri Ninja Pro BL450 Blender

nutri ninja bl456

Nutri Nin­ja Pro comes in 3 dif­fer­ent mod­els such as BL450, BL451, and BL456. All mod­els have the same base unit with a very pow­er­ful 900 watts motor but a dif­fer­ent selec­tion of con­tain­ers and recipe books. The typ­i­cal Nutri Nin­ja Pro set includes:
  • 900 Watt Motor Base Unit;
  • One Blade Assembly;
  • 12 oz., 18oz. and 24oz. poly­car­bon­ate cups (num­ber and selec­tion depend­ing on model);
  • Sip and Seal Lids (selec­tion depends on model);
  • Recipe and Well­ness Guide and Instruc­tion Book (depends on model).

The blender does not have the con­trol pan­el and is oper­at­ed with pulse func­tion only while the user holds it. The only one speed avail­able allows pro­cess­ing the selec­tion of recipes only by manip­u­la­tion with pulse mode. These lim­i­ta­tions, how­ev­er, have some pos­i­tive side; it makes the gad­get eas­i­er to use than tra­di­tion­al blenders.

Nutri Nin­ja Pro is equipped with rather low-qual­i­ty poly­car­bon­ate cups that are not able to han­dle hot liq­uids and may crack when exposed to high loads.

This machine comes with only one set of blade assem­bly for both liq­uid and dry tasks. The pro­cess­ing of dry food is not the strong side of this gad­get; it can per­form very lim­it­ed grind­ing and milling tasks. So, this gad­get is designed for the fol­low­ing tasks:

  • Smooth­ie, includ­ing decent qual­i­ty green smooth­ies, nut milk, and pro­tein shakes;
  • Crush­es ice even with­out added liq­uid up to snow cone con­sis­ten­cy and pro­duce excel­lent ice cream and frozen dessert;
  • Not designed to process hot liquids;
  • Puree­ing, chop­ping, and food prep includ­ing sim­ple dips, it is able to puree soft food, make sal­sas and sal­ad dressings;
  • Grind­ing and milling have lim­it­ed abil­i­ties to per­form these tasks, will not be able to mill hard grains, not designed for grind­ing cof­fee beans also.

The Nutri Nin­ja comes with a 1‑year lim­it­ed war­ran­ty; the cus­tomer ser­vice is not good at solv­ing cus­tomers’ issues.

How to Choose Between the Two Blenders

The NutriBul­let 600 watts High-Speed and Nutri Nin­ja Pro BL450/BL451/ BL456 are quite sim­i­lar gad­gets in design, func­tion­al­i­ty. Still, Nutri Nin­ja Pro has a more pow­er­ful motor and pro­duces a supe­ri­or qual­i­ty of blend­ing. Nutri Nin­ja is able to make good qual­i­ty green smooth­ies, while NutriBul­let almost fails in this func­tion. The Nutri Nin­ja is a pow­er­ful machine and the only per­son­al blender under $100 that will crush ice with­out liq­uid and will pro­duce excel­lent frozen desserts or shaved iced drinks. While NutriBul­let is not able to process ice with­out liq­uids and even with liq­uid added, the qual­i­ty of ice pro­cess­ing is not always per­fect. Both blenders are able to pro­duce the same qual­i­ty light chop­ping and food prep tasks and make sal­sa, sal­ad dress­ing, and oth­ers. The only task the NutriBul­let per­forms a bit bet­ter than the Nutri Nin­ja is the herbs and cof­fee beans milling; the NutriBul­let comes with a spe­cial milling blade for this pur­pose (only 12-piece and 14-piece sets).

Nutri Nin­ja is also a more sol­id and bet­ter-built machine in terms of dura­bil­i­ty, but both blenders suf­fer from dura­bil­i­ty issues.

Summary

Although NutriBul­let is more pop­u­lar, Nutri Nin­ja is no doubts is the much bet­ter machine. If you need a blender to make decent smooth­ies, crush ice, and pro­duce frozen desserts, then the Nutri Nin­ja is an obvi­ous choice. The price is also very sim­i­lar and can­not be a deci­sion-mak­er; both machines are pos­si­ble to grab from under a hun­dred dol­lars depend­ing on the mod­el and colors.
