Nutribullet High-Speed Blender – Overview
This blender is a problem solver for busy people who can’t seem to find the time to make healthy meals. Off-the-shelf substitutes are mostly loaded with sugar, calories, preservatives and artificial ingredients. The health benefits of making your own smoothie are numerous and not to be ignored. See my article, “Are Smoothies Good For You?”
Nutribullet has designed their product line of blenders not just to blend but to maximize nutrient extraction from fresh fruit, vegetables, nuts, seeds and other plant-based foods.
The Nutribullet High-Speed Blender is the 600-watt version. The patented stainless steel blades and cyclonic action break down the cell walls of fibrous plant foods, releasing the important vitamins and minerals while reducing the beneficial fiber, pulp, seeds, and skins into a smooth-as-silk texture.

The appliance has a small footprint, sturdy and powerful but quiet. The base has suction cup feet to keep it from sliding around on the countertop.
The (1) large and (2) small to-go cups come with sip rings (one with a handle) that are convenient so you can make your smoothie and dash off taking it with you wherever you need to be in the next minute.
Making a smoothie is just as fast and convenient. Load a cup with your favorite ingredients, greens first then fruit/veggies and add liquid up to the marker- line. Do NOT overfill past the marker line with solids or liquids. Overfilling can potentially lead to leakage and/or motor failure. Twist the extractor blade lid on tightly, attach the assembly onto the power base, press and twist. Occasionally greens get stuck on the cup walls, just remove the cup from the base, shake them loose and resume blending.
Nutribullet High-Speed Blender – Pros & Cons
- Convenient – small, powerful and fast. Large and small cups double as blending containers and as portable, take along mugs.
- Easy to clean – BPA-free. Cups are dishwasher safe. Blades are easily cleaned under the tap.
- Healthy – patented, high-speed (10,000 rpm) extractor blades create a cyclonic action to extract maximum nutrients and make fiber easier to absorb.
- Leaks – many complaints about leaks. Maybe due to overfilling above the max. fill line which puts pressure on the blade seal. Do NOT fill solid food or liquid above the line marked on the cup.
- Motor burnout – possibly caused by leakage into the power base. See the “Leaks” comment.
- Unit stops working – a possible cause is dislocation of the switches located on the top of the power base. Look down inside the power base where you should see the switches and be able to put them back where they belong.

Nutribullet High-Speed Blender – Who Is This Blender For Or Not?
The Nutribullet High-Speed Blender is ideal for single people or couples that want a quick and easy blender to make personal-sized, healthy smoothies.
Because of its small, personal-sized container, it is not for large families or friendly get-togethers where large quantities of smoothies need to be made.
It is not a juicer. Smoothies contain pulp, juice drinks do not.
The Nutribullet High-Speed Blender is not meant for meal making. Although the Nutribullet can do things other than smoothies, it is not designed for large quantities or the longer running times required to blend multiple food products. Countertop/Professional blenders should be used for this purpose.
However, if you need a personal-sized blender primarily for making smoothies then this is the blender for you.
