I bought my Nutribullet during the time of the mad rush when all the main retailers were sold out, it was a crazy fiasco, but I’m sure that’s all calmed down now.
Like most people, I was drawn in by the strong advertising campaign, promoting a healthier/more nutritious lifestyle.
I have no regrets. It’s a fabulous kitchen gadget and well worth investing in.
A few selling points for me:
- It looks nice (stylish/smooth/not bulky and mechanical)
- It takes up very little space (I leave it on the kitchen counter all the time)
- It juices, blends and grinds in record time
- It’s very easy to use
- It’s very very easy to rinse clean
- The jugs are dishwasher safe
- It’s handy when cooking and you want to ‘blast’ something quickly in a small jug (not a big almighty juicer or food processor)
- It’s great for blending down pulses/beans, with hardly any mess, which I regularly use to thicken sauces
A few tips:
- You don’t need to shake it, just let it do the work.
- Remember to turn the power switch off at the mains whilst dis/connecting the jug (there is no on/off switch on the Nutribullet).
- Rinse the blade piece “immediately” after easy use , everything rinses straight off.
- Remember to add water to your jug before blending into a liquid – otherwise you’ll end up with a thick paste. If you’re blasting to make a drink, add ice cold water or fruit juice.
- It’s great for making a soup
I’m one of those people who hates to throw the box away, straight away – but it’s been 6 months now so maybe it’s ok to let go!!
Strawberry, banana, pineapple, peach, peach, mango: next time I’ll add pineapple juice instead of water.
Conference pear, cucumber, kiwi, spinach, almonds: green fruit and veg seem to work well together, taste-wise.
Cashew nuts, banana, almonds, pistachios: this was really nice and creamy.
Apple, spinach, kiwi, brocoli
