    Hi all, can you please tell me what the fuss is all about? Isn't it the same as a blender? Stick mixer?

    Thank you

    I just got one for Christmas. I like it because it's compact and easy to clean, and is much stronger than a stick blender or regular blender. I have a large, powerful food processor that could do the same thing but I wouldn't use it to make just one smoothie/juice- too much effort.
    So I found for me it was worth it.

    I thought the same thing until we were given one over Christmas. We only have a 700 watt one and it's better than the stick and blender. It's also so convenient to just remove the cup and drink straight from it and then chuck it in the dishwasher afterwards. I use to hate washing the blender.

    I'll probably use it for many things now not just smoothies. I'll blend my pasta sauce in it and use it to make baby purée when the time comes.

    It's the only device that unleashes the true power and nutrients of your food!!! Obviously

    But no, it's just a powerful, small blender.

    love mine! it destroys almonds and chia seeds so you can literally put in anything and it turns it into a smoothie. no chunky bits.

    I tried making a smoothie with my old stickmaster stabbing blade and it didn't break the kale or pineapple down properly plus the blades got clogged.

    nutribullet is a dream. I love my morning smoothies and it basically opens up so many more smoothie options because it is so strong. and I only got the 600!

    I held off buying one for ages despite hearing nothing but glowing reports and my dh was very skeptical and against the idea until I just bought it behind his back. he's literally drinking his words now as he's a huge convert too.

    We use our ninja every day - you just throw in pieces of whole fruit , nuts, seeds, spinach ect and it blitzes it all into a juice, unlike a juicer you keep the fibre and nutrients in the whole fruit and most blenders won't get it so smooth

    yep this is what I like. you get the benefit of the whole fruit/veg as opposed to just extracting the juice and throwing the pulp away. it's far more economical in this way as you're getting the benefit of consuming the whole food and not just the juice.

    easy to clean as well as its only 2 parts (nutribullet is anyway), juicers etc have so many different parts and would take half an hour to clean!
