I tested the Nutribullet: my opinion and my ideas for detox recipes!
With summer coming, it’s time to change our diet and opt for lighter, fresher recipes, but above all with more fibre and more vitamins! As Juvenal said, “A healthy mind in a healthy body”, and for that, there is nothing better than good detox juices to get back in shape!
Our blender then becomes our best ally. But what they don’t tell us is thata traditional blender destroys a good part of the nutrients and fibres of our ingredients while blending! Fortunately for us, Nutribullet has designed an innovative product for rich and super healthy juices!
Nutribullet blender: what is it?
The Nutribullet product is an improved blender that does more than just blend ingredients. Described as a nutrient extractor, the aim is to retain the minerals, vitamins and nutrients in our fruit, vegetables or seeds, to keep all the goodness in them. The Nutribullet has more than one trick up its sleeve: not only does it blend, but it also grinds, whips, crushes or even minces, to prepare even more recipes, a true multi-functional food processor!
What’s more, the Nutribullet is a Mix&Go machine: you mix and take your drink with you straight away!
The different models
The brand has released four different blender models:
The only difference between its different models is the size of the bowls, the accessories and the power of the motor to blend.
In addition to these juicers, the brand also offers a multifunctional food processor, which can do everything! Chop, slice, spiralise your fruit, vegetables, cheese, meat etc. The Veggie Bullet® allows you to prepare many dishes in no time for a healthy diet.
Nutribullet® comparison: NUTRIBULLET® 600 W / NUTRIBULLET® 900 W
To familiarise you a little more with the characteristics of each product, I have compared the differences between the 600W and 900W power of the robots and their functionalities!
Features of the Nutribullet 600W
- 600W motor power (21,500 rpm)
- 950ml plastic cup
- A small plastic cup of 695ml
- A fresh lid (to store your juice or take it with you)
- A comfort lid to drink your recipe directly from the cup
- A user guide
- A nutritional guide
Features of the Nutribullet 900W
- 900W motor power (24,000 rpm)
- 1132ml plastic cup
- Small plastic cup 695ml
- Freshness lid (to store your juice or take it with you)
- A comfort lid to drink your recipe directly from the cup
- A gourd lid, adaptable on the large cup
- A user guide
- A nutritional guide
- A recipe book
The main differences between the two models are the accessories and the power of the motor. Both products are very powerful, but if you plan to use them regularly, I advise you to opt for the Nutribullet 900W. It will be more powerful, but more importantly, you will be able to produce your recipes in larger quantities! With its large cup, you will be able to increase the doses of your juices for more deliciousness! The big plus point for choosing this model is the gourd lid, which allows you to use the large cup as a pitcher. As a bonus, you even get a recipe book! This is also the opinion of Agathe in her article about the nutribullet 600 and 900 blender. She also compared these two models to the Nutribullet 1700 W, which has a large 1600 ml (1.6L) and a small 1170 ml cup. If you are making sweet or savoury recipes for the whole family, then I would advise you to choose the Nutribullet 900 or 1700. You will be able to make recipes for 3 to 4 people thanks to their larger capacity cup.
Nutribullet opinion: what do we think?
The Nutribullet is a very efficient product if you are a fan of smoothies or fruit and vegetable juices of all kinds. It has many advantages, for a model with good value for money. Of course, there are a few flaws to be aware of, but nothing that hinders the use and efficiency of the product!

We like: its practicality of use and its design! We also like the many accessories available with the product!

You will find the user's guide to learn more about the operation of your food processor.

The most elaborate and powerful food processor , the Nutribullet RX 1770 comes with many accessories: two cups, a pitcher, a cleaning brush for the blade etc. As with the 900W model, you will also find the nutritional guide and a recipe book!
What really sets the Nutribullet apart from a regular blender is its ability to turn food into superfoods. If you try to find out what's behind the brand name, it all makes sense! First of all, there's ' Nutri ' from nutrients, and ' Bullet ' which means a bullet in English, which means something fast. The juice of the Nutribullet is called " Nutriblast The juice from the Nutribullet is called " Nutri", which means explosion of nutrients.
Thanks to the extraction of nutrients, this robot stands out from blenders, mixers and centrifuges with drinks that have kept all the virtues of the ingredients, and we say yes!
Alternatives to Nutribullet: blenders and the Magic Bullet
If you love juicing of any kind but would like to find an alternative solution, you should know that there are plenty of blenders on the market!
Of course, if you just want to make juice for your own pleasure, any blender will do. However, if you want to keep the nutrients and properties of each ingredient for enriching recipes, you should turn to nutrient extractors! Beware, just like blenders, other juicers or juice extractors will also destroy a large part of the nutritional, fibre and mineral content of your recipes.
If you are looking for a nutrient extractor, here are the 4 most popular on the market.
