Now-a-days, the Vitamix or similar high-powered blenders are all the rage. And, rightfully so. They are amazing, whizzing beasts…the Rolls-Royce of blenders. Unfortunately, they come with the Rolls-Royce price (about $400-$600). Holy-Pretty-Penny-Batman.
I personally don’t have a use for such a big, powerful blender. I rarely use my standard blender and often use my food processor for big jobs. If YOU are in the market for a Vitamix, you can get it on Amazon HERE. They usually have the best price, customer service is great and if you’re a Prime member, you can get free shipping, for most things, in a day or 2. Hard. To. Beat.
But enough about the Vitamix. I’m here to tell you about the humble, the amazing…NutriBullet by Magic Bullet. I absolutely LOVE this little machine. It’s compact, taking up little space in my packed cabinets. It blends, purees and emulsifies like a champ. And it works amazingly well for blending sauces or salsas, smoothies or anytime I need to blend a small batch of anything. With THIS NutriBullet you can say goodbye to the days of watching your blender blades spin, not catching the ingredients you need to blend because it’s too big.
THIS 12 piece NutriBullet set is awesome because it includes 2 different size cups, resealable lids, removable handles (for taking your smoothie on the go), and 2 different types of blades (one for emulsifying and one for breaking down dry ingredients). It’s super affordable ($79.99) and the pieces are really easy to clean (they are dishwasher safe if you so choose to go that route).
If blending, emulsifying or pureeing is your game, NutriBullet is the name.
