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.
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.
Michael Delpach: TLDR: Not quite fine as a Vitamix.

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!!!
primo8486: you just got crapted on bullit FTMFW
Jennie Ashley: This is kind of invalid... You aren't supposed to leave the tamper in the
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.
Jennifer Nickel: Can the NutriBullet make hot soup or Almond Milk?
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
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.
Colleen K. Peltomaa: Please show an updated review of the Nutribullet 900-watts, 25,000 rpm,
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.
TheDiet God: The skinny chick is the one with the Vitamix....
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.
lowgizzle: I'd bang the chick with the glasses…...
nagaraj 8322: Have you seen Fat Blast Furnace? (Go google it) It is a quick and easy way
to shed fat fast.
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).
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.
Ricky Petty: On my way to get me A NutriBullet
Lee L: I have the hot's for Becky.. My spidey sense tell's me that she's a freak
59seank: Great review. Thanks!
Sascha Jay: Ich habe ihn benutzt, er ist scheiße, der muss 8 Minuten laufen, dass man
erstmal nichts mehr kauen muss... totaler Dreck
Anthony Pace: The problem with the NutriBullet is the blades are cheap. They lose their
edge very quickly. Especially if you use ice. It is just a remake of the
Bullet blender. The Vitamix will make hot soups and frozen desserts as
well. Your test was limited in scope. I have both and the NutriBullet sits
in my cupboard.
TheEsotericDesi: I've been using NutriBullet for over a year now and it turns flax into 100%
Liquid... :-P Best device... :-P
trackboi512: anybody else wanted to shoot themselves after watching this video?
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
Daniel Sait: Great video..really helpful review...
rebecca c: they don't share cups, no fluid sharing
folkrockr: I like the NutriBullet, but it has difficulty crushing ice, and I have that
quite a bit with my smoothies.
Jazminn Davis: I LOVE my Nutribullet - I use it 3 times a day! Love Love!
KidScipio: has anyone ever died of oxalic acid poisening from too much raw
crucerferous vegetables. it seems extremely dangerous
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...
Jennifer Howell: This was very informative. Thank you ladies.
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
L. Gunn: Thank you so much for posting this! I'm off to Target for a NutriBullet
Bobby Winford: You guys ROCK! Awesome, thanks.
Chris Ashcroft: I use my Nutri-Bullet all the time. Please note. It comes with a separate
blade to grind seeds that they don't use in this video. I grind the flax
seeds first with the correct blade...then put it in the smoothie. Much
jaspermatty: Vitamix costs $375 at Costco. John at discount Juicer also compares the 2.
I'm far from rich, but knew the Vitamix was a great investment. Going
strong for 2 years, now and I use it every day.
t0fast: For every Vitamix you buy you could had bought 4-5 Nutribullets. I think it
comes down to how much more you think the Vitamix really is worth paying
for when the results for what most people will be using them for are very
578sundriedAZ: You should've tested an avocado pit in the nutribullet
jaspermatty: Vitamix 7X longer warranty and made in America.
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
bobby mandrake: Honestly the vitamix is the superior product. You honestly get what you pay
for. but the vitamix is not affordable for everybody.
OhPervyOne: +getpurevitality - Have you done a side-by-side strainer test, where you
pour the two smoothies into two strainers (not collanders, please) and see
which is smoother, which strains through faster, which is grainier and
which leaves more stuff behind in the strainer after the juice passes
This is something people like to consider when juicing.
Aside from all that:
- Have you tried making flour from grains in the NB?
- Have you made fresh peanut-butter with the NB?
- Have you made any fresh almond-milk in the NB?
Enquiring Minds want to know.
QENT2: Comparing a Nutribullet to a Vitamix is like comparing. VW to. Ferrari. A
true comparison would require weighing your ingredients. I have a Vitamix,
a Blendtec and my trusty Magic Bullet. They all play a different role in my
kitchen. I prefer Vitamix over Blendtec hands down. I am currently looking
at Tribest Personal or Nutribullet to replace my Magic Bullet. If your
thinking about Vitamix and have the money you won't regret it. This video
is helping my research, Thanks.
alan30189: Xaxa Xixi, Thanks for the tip on Bed Bath n Beyond stocking the Blendtec. I
will check them out next time I get a coupon. alan30189
john doe: hello becky what do you think of the nutribullet overall
curious880: the Magic Bullet is not the same as the Nutri Bullet....
byootifie: But . . . the big question is, how does the Nutribullet hold up over time?
I've read many reviews indicating that problems (leaking, etc.) begin
occurring w/i a few months, sometimes w/i a few weeks! Scary . . . I had
terrible problems w/ my Tribest personal blender leaking, and then
replacement seals not working. Finally sprang for a Vitamix and never
looked back. LOVE it!
