Joseph Dorvilus: Very impressive I love it
Oscar v: Biased, to justify their our purchases
cor: you guys had a pre agenda.
Georgia Harley: it don't have to be totally fine blending..............
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 Nutri-bullets .
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.
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
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 :-)

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 extract!
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.
Mike McKerrow: Thanks for doing the review, very helpful.
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 $400. Plus.
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....
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 cups.
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 vitamix!
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.
