getpurevitality: Join us for a free 30-Day Green Smoothie Challenge that is coming up in
January. We will be giving away a Vitamix! Are you in?
PS. We still love our NutriBullet and it's still going strong!
Steven Hunter: At the end of the day, it all depends on what you need. If all you need is
a blender for making smoothies then I suppose Nutribullet is one way to go.
It does a good job, though it won't last anywhere near as long as a
Vitamix. I've read about issues with motor burn out, blade breakage, and so
forth. The Vitamix, on the other hand, has to be seen as an investment. It
isn't only a blender: it blends, makes soups, ice cream/sorbets, nut
butters, grinds grains into flour, grinds meat, and on down the list.
Comparing these two appliances is a bit of a joke, to be honest.
kimchiman1000: Three things:
1. Y'all are cute. Nice presentation!
2. Glad I saw this. I just got a used NutriBullet, as I can't afford a
Vitamix. I feel like it was $40 very well spent.
3. I was thinking, "There really ought to be a chicken in that kitchen. I
actually made a point of looking around, and there it is: a chicken! Just
gives your kitchen a 'complete' look.
Thanks for the comparison.
cor: you guys had a pre agenda.
Georgia Harley: my blender makes a great smoothie....................duh
wonmoreminute: I have the Vitamix, the Ninja 1000 watt model and the Magic Bullet. I
upgraded originally to the Ninja because I drink a lot of green smoothy...
2 liters or more daily. The bullet is okay, but I hated making several
small smoothies every day. Or, if I'm making fruit and yogurt smoothies for
the family I can't make a pitcher... I have to make 4 small smoothies.
Enter the Ninja! The Ninja cannot blend things up like the bullet can.
Green smoothies, while they taste good are more like chunky salads you can
drink (and chew). The Bullet does a better job here for anyone comparing
those two models, although I find I've got a shake it often to get it
smooth. So, after living with the Ninja for awhile (and keeping toothpicks
on hand when drinking my to-go smoothies) I finally upgraded to the
Vitamix. I should have just followed my instincts and went with the Vitamix
from you start but it is what it is. We learn and move on. I realize now I
did not know what a smooth smoothie was prior to Vitamix ownership. In
fact, those who critiqued the cheaper brands I thought were just smoothie
snobs and had to justify their lavish expenditure. Nope. The Ninja isn't in
the same league, nor is the bullet. You can see in the video the woman with
the Vitamix is actually chewing on that bullet smoothie at first. The other
one only thinks it's fantastic because she didn't try the one from the
Vitamix and her friend doesn't have the heart to tell her. Furthermore,
throw a heavy helping of leafy greens in there and compare. I'm not saying
the bullet is junk. For the price it is good and for most people it is all
they will need. If it gets people consuming more fruits and vegetables then
it's a valuable product. In fact, I'll be going back to a job that requires
extensive travel and I'll be taking my bullet with me. It is however, not
the Vitamix. You can be quite certain that commercial smoothie
establishments and restaurants will not be ditching their Vitamix's for
Vaughan Elphick: Love how the Vitamix owner has to say its not quite as smooth, the other
girls express "Not quite as smooth? Ok." They are EXACTLY the same, the
Vitamix owner just hates she spent a fortune and does the same job as the
much cheaper machine lol
Michael Delpach: TLDR: Not quite fine as a Vitamix.

Sketchrcat: I've had the Nutribullet 600 for over a year and I haven't had any issues
with it..!! Now that said; first off; the Nutribullet comes with an
extractor blade and a MILLING BLADE! Sooo, if you actually want a smooth
smoothy use the milling blade on your nuts & seeds 1st; then take the
milled nuts and or seeds and add them to your Nutribullet veggy & fruit
concoction; add only enough water to barely touch the max-fill line; and
then Nutriblast it all, for about 45 seconds / to 50 seconds.
If you want more of a juice type consistency add a little bit less veggys
/ fruits to the overall blast contents; if you want a more of a smoothy
consistency add a good amount of veggy to fruit ratio and blast away. Its
that simple! You don't need to crowd 2 pounds of veggies and or fruit into
the container at one time, either! If you do want more; just make another
blast; again simple solution.
Because your extracting a ton of nutrient dense liquid from the fruits &
veggies in each blast; you don't need a lot of one kind of fruit and
vegetable put into the Nutribullet. It's far better to put a little bit of
a variety of different fruits in; and this especially true to do with the
vegetables you want to liquify thru the extractor. Oh and don't forget to
rotate your vegetables that you're putting in each day....especially with
Kale. One day put in Kale; the next day put in spinach instead of the
kale...and so on and so on. Easy way to do it is just by colors; the more
different colored vegetables you take in weekly the healthier it is for you.
And only use the extractor with organic fruits and vegetables, and nuts and
seeds. Because some of the packaged nuts and seeds are treated with
chemicals (PPO), under the guise of pasteurization; and when you go to
Nutriblast these packaged products, those harmful pasteurization chemicals
are released into your smoothy; and the chemicals used in said process are
known to cause cancer! So only use organic products in either extractor
featured in the above video.
The best sinario, in my opinion, is to have both a Nutribullet, (especially
for travel situations), and either a Nutri-Ninja Pro, or the Vitamix...so
that you get all the best from both worlds. Vitamix makes more mixure, if
you have more then one person drinking...and Nutribullet is great for just
extracting for one person....
tiffsaver: The only reason not to buy the Vitamix is simply the cost. If you want to
go on the cheap, get a cheaper machine. But that's where the difference
ends... comparing the Vitamix and any other blender is like comparing a
Volkswagen Beetle to a Rolls Royce. I've always noticed that paying for a
better quality product is cheaper in the long run, because you'll never
have to buy a replacement machine again. Better still, you'll just have a
better experience with a quality machine, and I've tried them ALL. And the
Vitamix can do everything, not just single servings of juice. If you're
serious about making professional-quality smoothies or anything else that
requires blending, nothing can even compare with a Vitamix, especially if
you use it for cooking purposes like I do.
That said, my friend has a Nutribullet because of his tiny kitchen space,
and he's extremely happy with it. The most important thing is... START
MAKING HEALTHY DRINKS!!! I used to rely on things like laxatives and fiber
caps to get "regular," but NONE of them worked as well as making a green
smoothie. AFTER ONLY ONE DAY OF DRINKING ONLY TWO SERVINGS, my body was
running like a brand new car. I tossed out all of my fiber supplements,
and never looked back :-)
Anna Moon: My $35. Food processor makes nut butters and blends my soup.. VitaMix makes
ice cream? Are you talking abount blending ingredients that make the ice
cream? NutriBullet does that, too. Im sure VitaMix does a good job, but my
bullet can do all that. Ive had mine for two years and its phenominal.
Easiest to clean, less storage space, economical... And way less $$$ I used
to drool over VitaMix demos, but more! Now I walk by with a grin for saving
Georgia Harley: it don't have to be totally fine blending..............
Jennie Ashley: This is kind of invalid... You aren't supposed to leave the tamper in the
Colleen Peltomaa: Please show an updated review of the Nutribullet 900-watts, 25,000 rpm,
Mike McKerrow: Thanks for doing the review, very helpful.
yupyup1562: This review only solidified my decision that the NutriBullet is the one for
me. I don't make nut butters nor do I need it to heat soup, I am looking
for something that will make a smooth fruit, vegie, nut smoothie.
Also, I have read numerous negative reviews on the Vitamix. People having
problems with it right after purchase or even just a few months later and
the common complaint by them all is how horrible customer service is when
there is a problem.
I do like the idea of buying American Made but if the company has such
awful customer service when there are problems, and apparently there are
quite a few, then they are not standing behind their product and that is
not what I want to deal with on such a large appliance investment.
AthionBel: my biggest issue with the nutribullet, is the cups are are to small. I have
to blent all my stuff at separate times & they still barely fit into the
Annette A: thank you so much for the demo. I just received my 900 watt Pro Series
Nutri Bullet and can't wait to try it.
primo8486: you just got crapted on bullit FTMFW
Uncle Bernie: I had a nutribullet but put it away because go the Consumer's Report on
blade breakage. I then bought a Nutrinija, basically the same thing. I
really want a Vitamix, but-$500 and it is enormous. I truly do not have the
room on my counter.
greenmarine5: I have the 600 watt version, I should of bought the 900 watt version.
Because the 600 watt version does a slightly better job than a $25.00
Awakeon Earth: I love my Nutribullet! Have had it over a year and it has paid for itself
in my renewed health benefits. Why did she have to hold down the lid on the
Vitamix? Plus, she had to rev up the power on the Vitamix to equal the
Nutribullet and that was the 600 watt model. Go Nutribullet!!!
Jennifer Nickel: Can the NutriBullet make hot soup or Almond Milk?
pucrob: I have both also, starting out with the Vitamix. I needed something smaller
for an individual serving, and the Nutribullet does the job, and well. Just
ordered the 900 watt version.
Sascha Jay: Ich habe ihn benutzt, er ist scheiße, der muss 8 Minuten laufen, dass man
erstmal nichts mehr kauen muss... totaler Dreck
Melody A: How can you even compare the two? You can make apple juice, frozen
desserts, hot cocoa, almond milk, and soup in the Vitamix. Cleanup is
literally one min, so you can use it 5x a day. Capacity is far greater.
Blade is way sharper. Motor can't be beat. Sould have done Blendtec vs
Vitamix. This is a joke.
trackboi512: anybody else wanted to shoot themselves after watching this video?
Alasdair King: There was more water used in the vitamix, a whole bottle compared to 2/3 of
a bottle in the NutriBullet, so it will be smoother.
loangdec: I'd bang both of these girls...even though they are probably somewhere in
the southern states..I'd travel. Skinny chick has a great rack..chubby
chick has a great ass...I wonder how much of my juice both of them can
Cindy Church: I think the nutribullet is great, but.... you have to be able to not have
it run over 1 or 2 minutes, or else you will burn the motor up. The
nutribullet is $99. I know this because I have, over the past few years,
invested in one (I have had 3 in the last 5 years, each one lasted about
2-3 months). Each time, I use as directed, but the plastic pieces of the
nutribullet wear out and/or break; each one ultimately started leaking into
the motor and shortly after, shorted the entire thing out. Each time, it
shorted out before I had actually paid for the item (I had staggered the
payments). In retrospect, IF I had put aside $25 a pay check or more, each
month and purchased a Vitamix, I would still have the Vitamix. You can
actually get a refurbished Vitamix 5200 for about $300-$350. Hind-sight is
not fun. Plus, it really is not fair to compare the two solely on making a
smoothie, because with the Vitamix, it does soooo much more! - soups,
sorbets, ice cream, nut butters, etc. I would recommend waiting a few extra
months and saving up for something that is made well and won't
break/leak/short out. (Vitamix has 7 year warranty).
TheDiet God: The skinny chick is the one with the Vitamix....
lowgizzle: I'd bang the chick with the glasses…...
folkrockr: I like the NutriBullet, but it has difficulty crushing ice, and I have that
quite a bit with my smoothies.
Ricky Petty: On my way to get me A NutriBullet
Yvan Verenka: My Nutri bullet gave out on me today. Last week there was a leak from the
cheap seals it has and kale juice went inside the motor and switches. You
have to really torque down that blade cover compared to the Vitamix.
Warranty? One year compared to seven...
Jazminn Davis: The thing with the Nutribullet is that its one serving and much faster
cleaner up! I even put whole frozen strawberries with their stems still on
and everything is gone if I leave on for 2 minutes! Vitamix is great for a
larger amount for a family. Love that too, but I find I use my nutribullet
nagaraj 8322: Have you seen Fat Blast Furnace? (Go google it) It is a quick and easy way
to shed fat fast.
Julie Lamberts: The NutriBullet is made in China and the Vitamix is made in the US! Why
buy from China when you should be supporting your own economy.
Jazminn Davis: I LOVE my Nutribullet - I use it 3 times a day! Love Love!
59seank: Great review. Thanks!
Lee L: I have the hot's for Becky.. My spidey sense tell's me that she's a freak
KidScipio: has anyone ever died of oxalic acid poisening from too much raw
crucerferous vegetables. it seems extremely dangerous
rebecca c: they don't share cups, no fluid sharing
bdhu2001: You mixed the ingredients incorrectly in the Vitamix. You should put
liquid first. Both NutriBullet and Vitamix want you to have liquid next to
Jennifer Howell: This was very informative. Thank you ladies.
Daniel Sait: Great video..really helpful review...
Matty S: Why is it when people compare the 2, all they ever make is a smoothie? And
even then, they never put the contents through a sieve to prove they are as
smooth as each other.
There are a lot of smoothie makers, even some cheaper and as good as the
Nutribullet. But none come close to what the Vitamix can do.
I've owned 8 or 9 blenders over the years, and now know I will not buy
anything other than a Vitamix, unless someone else decides to bring out a
product that really can compete with it for a lot less.
If all you make is smoothies, and don't mind just a 1 year warranty, along
with the unreliability of the Nutribullet (I had one, died twice in 13
Months, out of warranty and went in the trash), then go right ahead and get
TheEsotericDesi: I've been using NutriBullet for over a year now and it turns flax into 100%
Liquid... :-P Best device... :-P
L. Gunn: Thank you so much for posting this! I'm off to Target for a NutriBullet
