Not only is the Magic Bullet blender designed to do everything from chopping vegetables to making spreads, smoothies, party drinks, iced coffee drinks and more, but it only takes up approximately the space of a travel coffee mug. This means that it cuts down on kitchen clutter both by removing extra appliances and by taking up less space itself.
In addition, this blender bullet is designed with ease of use first and foremost in mind. You don’t even have to push a button, just press one of the specially designed cups, mugs, or other blending jars into the base and push down.
In less than 10 seconds, this blender is designed to give you the drink, sauce, or smoothie that you’re craving.
The Magic Bullet blender features a cyclonic cutting zone. Its specially designed blade and bullet-like shape work together to keep food from getting stuck anywhere in the blender. Thus, it claims to blend everything smoothly and consistently.
The above mentioned base with its different blending jars is another highly-touted feature of this blender. Choose between the short cup, the tall cup, or the party mug, depending on your current blending needs. Each of these fit into the blender and activate the motor when pressed down.
While it may seem like this simple staring mechanism would make it difficult to control the Magic Bullet blender and its different speeds, it actually allows for plenty of control with the pulsing technique. If you have problems getting this to work, the blender’s website offers several videos that demonstrate the procedure.
- 17-piece high-speed mixing system chops, whips, blends, and more. Cups are made out of high-impact plastic
- Includes power base, 2 blades, 2 cups, 4 mugs, 4 colored comfort lip rings, 2 sealed lids, 2 vented lids, and recipe book
- Durable see-through construction; press down for results in 10 seconds or less
The tiny amount of space that the Magic Bullet blender takes up is a definite advantage. You can even store it in a cupboard or on a pantry shelf and only get it out when you need it, because its size and light weight make it more transportable than other blenders. If you have a small kitchen or don’t like lots of counter clutter, you should definitely consider this blender.
In addition, the attachable blending jars that the blender bullet offers are a distinct advantage. They cut down on the clean up because you’re not cleaning a jar in addition to the cup or bowl you poured your blended concoction into. This setup also means that each member of your family could have their own set of blending jars, so everyone can have the smoothie or beverage they desire.
Many consumers complain that the Magic Bullet blender does not work as advertised. They claim that it chops inconsistently, especially when dealing with something like vegetables, and that it tends to turn everything to mush. The pulsing control seems to be more difficult to use than Magic Bullet’s website would like you to think.
In addition, the blender seems to have some problems with longevity. While it may work well for a few months, consumers seem to want more than this for their money. It has been a long-term solution for some, but you may be taking a gamble when you purchase it.
Finally, the blender seems to work best for individuals or, at most, couples, but cannot stand up under the use of an entire family. It is also difficult to blend large batches of things like soup in the blender, because the jar simply isn’t large enough.
Is it revolutionary?……Probably not
But if you need a strong little personal blender, the Magic Bullet blender is quite possibly the solution for you. Make sure you are willing to jump through some hoops with it, though, and that you don’t need a blender that will work with large amounts of food all at once.
This little blender is a delight to some and a curse to others, so make sure it fits your needs before you buy.
