From the time of its launch, the NutriBullet has proven to be a game-changer in homes across the world. Sabi Phagura puts the new NutriBullet Blender Combo to the test to see if this new addition to the lineup will prove to be as revolutionary.
The all-in-one NutriBullet Blender Combo product, is the first time the iconic NutriBullet cups and a traditional blender have come together.
Starting life as a single-serve countertop blender in 2003, the NutriBullet has come a long way, with multiple products on the market to suit different needs.
This latest machine hopes to take care of all your food creations without having to buy lots of individual gadgets. You can create delicious, nutritious smoothies with the famous bullet cups and then swap to the 1.8-litre jug for traditional blending purposes.
I’ve had the NutriBullet 600W Personal Blender since it was launched in 2012 (the Magic Bullet is where it all started, though, in 2003), and I have to say, it’s been a game-changer when it comes to addressing my nutritional needs. I’ve always enjoyed baking but was not much of a cook until lockdown. But I still don’t want to spend every waking hour in the kitchen, and so anything that can help speed up the process is welcomed.
What makes the NutriBullet Blender Combo stand out is the minimalist design, hassle-free components and containers which make for mobile lifestyles. This machine cut down on prep time, was easy to clean and made getting on-the-go simple.
Bigger than your average bullet cup, the large 1.8-litre capacity jug blender has been launched to tackle any traditional blending. With the vented lid cap, you can blend hot ingredients to whizz up soups, sauces and other hot liquids.
The jug blender uses the famous NutriBullet extractor blades so you can batch prepare smoothies, use it for hot and cold blends, crush ice and pulse food to make chunky dips.
You can really put the machine through its paces because its 1200 watts of power has the ability to crack open seeds, bust open stems, shred through skins of fruits and vegetables to extract all of the fibre and nutrients. And of course, by switching the cups, the NutriBullet Blender Combo is still ideal for personal smoothies.
The NutriBullet Blender Combo has five blend options, which are namely high, medium, low, pulse and nutrition extraction, which will give you control over the consistency of what you need blending.
One thing I’ve struggled with in the past is the mess blenders tend to create. But this machine is relatively easy to clean by hand. However, if you have a dishwasher, you can just put everything (except the power base) in it, and you’ve saved yourself a chore.
Background to the NutriBullet range
NutriBullet blenders have established themselves as being among the most powerful enough to whizz up the smoothest of smoothies, making it easy to get a powerfully delicious dose of fruit and veg every day. They feature a lightweight base and patented extractor blades, which are made from the toughest stainless steel – so they never need sharpening.
Their products claim to do what less powerful blenders cannot: break down food at the molecular level. The blades, which rotate at an impressive 10,000 rpm under a powerful 600-watt motor, liquefy what other blenders cannot.
