Magic Bullet Reviews
Affordability, versatility, and power.
Unfortunately, the low price-tag comes with a catch – the blender’s motor doesn’t have as much power. With a 250-watt motor, it isn’t as a strong as a Nutribullet blender which has up to 900 watts of power (Nutribullet Pro 900). Therefore, the level of versatility offered by the Magic Bullet blender is less than that of the Nutribullet blender, especially if you are looking for a blender to blast through the leafy greens.
What’s there to smile about? Well, even at 250 watts, the blender can create smoothies from soft ingredients, and you can use it to make perfect baby food. You might use it as a grinder tool; but only if you don’t expect or require the smoothest results. Also, it doesn’t crush ice, and it leaves you with a chunky smoothie.
BPA-free parts – The materials making up the parts of the blender are BPA-free. This means that the blender is safe for use with babies. You can also rely on the blender for soft-ingredient to make smoothies and milkshakes.
Container sizes – If you are looking for an affordable blender to meet all the smoothie needs of your family, the Magic Bullet isn’t your best fit. The smoothie containers are too small – it has an 18oz and 12oz cups.
Lastly, the performance of the Magic Bullet is inconsistent.
