My Rating: 10 out of 10

Smoothies are definitely the drink of choice for persons wanting to be in better health. It has been praised for helping those with diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and those wanting to lose some weight, to name a few. We are encouraged to use a number of vegetables and fruits to make our smoothies and then to use these powerhouse drinks to replace a meal. Smoothies can be rich in vitamins and minerals and are therefore considered highly nutritious.

What you Will Get

Today, I will take some time to introduce you to one of my favorite kitchen companions, the Magic Bullet, NutriBullet Rx N17-1001. This NutriBullet is more versatile than her predecessors as she can be used to make smoothies, soups, and sauces.  This means value for your money.

The package contains:

  • NutriBulletRx 45-oz blender
  • 30-oz cup
  • 45-oz cup
  • Extractor blade
  • It contains an automated cycle to make soup

Smaller Cup

The two cups ensure that you have the right tool for the job. I find the 30 oz cup very useful to make a little sauce for the dinner, or when you want a little soup, whether to have at home or to take to work. This size is also useful when you are using a smoothie to replace a meal such as breakfast.

Larger Cup

The ultra convenience of the larger cup is also appreciated, especially when family and friends are visiting. This 45-oz cup offers more space to make sauces and smoothies to share with family and friends. I find this to be highly convenient. This size is also super convenient to be used for the entire family.

There is no need to worry about glass breaking or shattering because the cups are made from high-impact plastic which is BPA free.

Blending Process

The blending process is fully automated and so the only thing you will have to do is place the pitcher on and let it do its’ thing. I love the idea of setting it up and wait and see its’ performance, which for me is almost magical. It is breath-taking to see the blades spin and my nuts and seeds pulverize to mix with my vegetables and fruits to make a smooth, nutritious drink.

Note also that this is done in record time. The Magic Bullet NutriBullet Rx N17-1001 makes a smooth drink in little time. I am amazed at the little time I use to make smoothies with nuts and seeds. The average time I take to make most of my smoothies is just 2 to 3 minutes. The 1700W motor makes this possible.

Soup and Sauces-What a Treat?

Making soup in 7 minutes is also a time saver and again can be done due to the 1700W motor. I prefer to heat my soup on the stovetop, then blend to have a smooth, silky texture. The NutriBullet gives me a nicer finish compared to the results I get when I use my traditional blender.

The same is true for sauces, as these powerful blades cut through seasonings and fruits to make delicious sauces complementing any and every meal. The Magic Bullet NutriBullet Rx N17-1001 is a great gadget to use to make the sauce for a variety of spaghetti dishes.

Easy to Clean

Another great and convenient feature of the Magic Bullet NutriBullet Rx N17-1001 is that when you are through using it, cleaning up is a breeze. The cups and pitcher are easy to clean with a little soap and water. No scrubbing is required and the pieces are not cumbersome.

Gasket Problems or Not?

Some people reported having issues with the gasket. That has not been my experience, but I also noticed where that issue has been rectified in the newer machines. JohnW on February 9, 2015, left a comment on the Amazon site confirming this report.


I would recommend the Magic Bullet NutriBullet Rx N17-1001 to anyone because it is easy to use, versatile, highly functional and the price is in reach. I have had great successes before in the past purchasing from Amazon and so I do not hesitate to suggest that you check out the price here first. See below for the Magic Bullet NutriBullet Rx N17-1001, which is available at Amazon.

    Hey Josephine,
    Great review! I’ve often seen these NutriBullet blenders but never really used one, so now I now what the score is! I didn’t know they were that powerful and versatile, I thought they were a budget version with budget features.

    One thing I would say is that the ‘Amazon’ link is the same colour as the rest of the text so it’s difficult to see that it is actually a link.

    Otherwise, thanks for all the info!

      Hey Josh, Thank you for taking the time. I also noted your suggestion and you will observe that the Amazon link is a different color now. Much appreciated. Now that you know more about the NutriBullet, I trust that you are planning to purchase said. Let me know. By the way, do you love smoothies?

    Really good page here. The heading lines crash into each other. Needs an extra line space above Review.
    I notice on my preview page 1001 is on first line while when I open up the page onscreen it has dropped to second line alongside review. Needs tidying up.
    Only other issue that jumped out at me was under Gasket Problems you refer to some persons where I would have said people. But overall great job.

      Chris, thank you for commenting and I do appreciate the editing tips. I fixed the ones I could, thank you. Do you love smoothies Chris and do you own a NutriBullet?

    I have always heard about how wonderful the magic bullet is. I’m still using a blender. Now you make me want to go out and buy one. 🙂

      Yes, Wendy, it is great to have, but I love to encourage people to save. So, if your blender is doing the trick for you now, go ahead and use it to do the recipes, but when it has served it’s purpose and come to a standstill, then you may want to consider the NutriBullet. Cheers.
