  • Vitamix vs Nutribullet

    Can anyone who has experience with these products please comment? I don't drink smoothies but I could be convinced to do some nutribullet juicing. It would mostly be used for blending, making frozen treats, nut butters ect.

    I'd love your advice!

    I have the Vitamix and I LOVE it... have never used the Nutribullet before, but I believe it's a portable blender. Not sure if you can do frozen treats or nut butters in that as you would need something high speed. Hope that helps!

      I switched to NutriBullet after using the Jack Lalanne juicer because it doesn't remove the pulp. My usual smoothie consists of two carrots, a green apple and a scoop of Youngevity.

      My wife still likes to use the Jack Lalanne for some reason.

        Neither products are juicers.
        You get what you pay for. $500+ vs $50
        My experience... Vitamix will blend nearly anything with very little added liquid. I often make smoothies as thick as froyo.
        The bullet works for very small quantities...wont handle packed full of frozen fruit or hard vegies like carrots, needs more liquid.

        But as travel blender a bullet could be useful, just knowing its limits.

          I love my Vitamix, I have blended soups, made nut butters, smoothies, and juice. I haven't tried (or even seen) the other product. If price is an issue Vitamix has payment plans as well as sells refurbished ones.

            Love the Vitamix and while it sounds like a small plane taking off when in use, it will blend the daylights out of anything. (If you want liquid, with no pulp, go w/ a juicer.) This machine is excellent.

            You can buy them rebuilt, directly from the company for 1/2 or less off the full price and they warranty it. Is a great deal and now both sets of parents have a rebuilt and they've never had a problem w/ them.

              Neither.

              Get a Blendtec, you'll never look back and won't be embarrassed to have it sit on your counter-top like a vitamix will do.

                Why is a Vitamix embarrassing?

                  I'm curious to know the answer to this, too. I love my vitamix, I use it for everything; making nut/coconut butter, soups, whipped potatoes, soups, gravies, mayo and dressings and, on occasion, smoothies.

                  A friend of mine has a Blendtec and said it's great for smoothies or protein shakes and he's used it a couple of times for soup but it didn't really have the balls for making almond butter. I suppose if you're just using it for juice either one is a good option, but I got my vitamix with the intention of it being useful for just about everything.

                    I ordered a Blendtec early this week and can't wait for it to arrive in the mail!!!

                      Thanks for the helpful advice. I looked at the Blendtec, you're right, they are terribly pretty!

                      Anyone have specific experience with blending soaked nuts or dry nuts/coconut for butters?

                        I have had great experience with both in my Vitamix.

                          each has its merits - I have the Vita-mix 750 and use it twice a day - fantastic for homemade ice cream - I put 2 frozen bananas, 1/2 frozen avocado, some dates, honey, and 1-2 scoops casein powder and it literally makes a frozen treat in seconds - I am afraid I don't have much experience with other machines except the Ninja Master Prep which is good for quick recipes and is cheap. Good luck

                            Blendtec eats them right up. they now even have a new jar (Twister I think it's called) that is supposed to be designed for nut butters. Have not tried it though.

                              I've been considering purchasing one. Have any of you all used one before? What are your experiences? From the research I've done, most people love it. Two of my friends have one and swear by the thing. Just curious to hear opinions on the product before I buy one.I've read a few reviews about the Vitamix such as this one Ninja vs Vitamix – Vitamix vs Ninja and it seems to be more durable than the Nutribullet. Please share your thoughts

                              I would like to make the best selection at the best price possible
