NutriBullet RX Reviews
Juicers and blenders are staples of late night television infomercials, and NutriBullet RX is the latest in a line of relatively well-received products by this company. Compared to the original NutriBullet and NutriBullet Pro, the Rx (which is said to stand for “nature’s prescription”) is more powerful, has larger cups, can create more servings at once, and includes heating functionality. In short, this is the top of the line NutriBullet unit which improves upon older models.
The 1700-watt motor is more than sufficient to completely blend fruits and veggies into “NutriBlasts,” which is the company’s fancy term for smoothies. The end product is smooth and free of lumps than produced by previous models. Even nuts can be blended down nicely. The product contains large 30 and 45 ounce cups, which is a significant improvement over 18-32 ounce cups found in older models. This allows you to make more than double the number of servings over a regular NutriBullet.
The RX model includes a heating function which opens up a world of soup making previously unavailable in other models. The process takes a bit longer (up to 10 minutes), and you will need to allow the unit to rest to avoid overheating. There is some debate whether this method is faster than just using it in NutriBlast mode and warming it up on the stove or in a microwave.
Keep in mind that the fill lines are meant to be measured after everything has been placed in the unit, not just the amount of liquid to be used. Overfilling can lead to leakage or even gasket breaks.
NutriBullet RX is superior to previous models in virtually every way. If cost is not an issue, this should be near the top of your list of products to consider in this category.
Keep in mind that the phrase “nutrient extraction” is used generously by the advertising, but this should not be confused with juice extraction, which is what standard juicers do. That is not what the RX does. Juice extraction is when pulp is separated from juice, and is a completely different type of product.
Blenders and smoothie makers are ubiquitous online and on store shelves. Ninja, Hamilton Beach, Magic Bullet, and Conair are among countless brands competing for your counter space. You may want to compare models and reviews over on Amazon. You may also be interested in our review of the Nutri Ninja.
NutriBullet RX takes what worked with previous models, and improves upon almost every feature. Cost aside, it is by far the best in the Ninja line and a value in its price range. A minority of users have reported technical problems, although we found the unit to perform flawlessly.
