I have been making healthy smoothies and juices for over a year now with my nutri-bullet blender, and maybe some not so healthy milkshakes.
I like this blender because it has a very ergonomic design. The blades screw onto the top of the blender cup, which is quite convenient. This single piece could be replaced instead of the whole unit if the blades were to dull. The blender also comes with two other screw on lids for consumption, one with a closing cap, one with an open top.
To blend all I do is add the contents, screw on the lid, flip it onto the nutri-bullet and press down. If I press it down it pulses, or I can lock it in to blend by slightly turning it.
I also enjoy this blender because of it’s simplicity. There is no variable speed which may seem like a hindrance at first, but really the one speed works great.
The only downside to this blender is when I don’t add enough liquid. While this is a user error, if I were to add any feedback for improvement it would be for the blender to be able to have more power to get through those thick smoothies, with little liquid.
To clean I sometimes wash by hand but if I’m in a pinch I just throw in warm water and soap and blend it up!
