    I thought Costco warranty is separate from the manufacturers warranty.

    If 5 years warranty is on the part of manufacturer, would it be right to say you don't need to maintain membership?

    •  

      Its not the manufacturer warranty. Its the Costco warranty. Updated the post.

    •  

      I was under the impression costco provided lifetime warranty (as long as membership hasn't lapsed)

      you are right its 5 yrs warranty even if membership isn't valid. (well at-least that's how I understand it)
      But needs to be confirmed, maybe costco have changed their policy.

    What is up with all the nutribullet hype lately? It is just a blender?

      It's not just a blender…….

        Mind explaining a little more? From what I read and watch reviews, it does exactly what my blender does, except it is much smaller and could not blend bigger stuff. Seems like you can use the blender cover as a cup as well and store in fridge.

          @sickllama: Yeah that is what is being advertised, but it is still just a blender. My fiance is a nutritionist and she literally face palm when she saw it on tv.

          @Letrico:

          Lol yep. It's perfect for increasing the GI in foods. But that's not a good thing…

          My fiance is a nutritionist and she literally face palm when she saw it on tv.

          why? Is she against people eating fresh fruit & veg ?

        •  

          @jv:
          presumably because she things people should /eat/ fresh fruit & veg, rather than drinking them, loosing all the fibre which bulks veg up and basically turning fruit in syrup…

          (if you want to smash veg into pulp, go ahead - but it doesn't magically make it better for you - typically it the same, or possibly not as good as the 'raw' veg would have been)

          you don't lose the fibre, you drink it with the rest of the fruit/veg. It's not a juicer…

          but it doesn't magically make it better for you

          I never said it makes it better, it's exactly the same… But I'm more likely to eat carrots, broccoli, spinach when blended together with an apple and some water…

          @jv: Because using NutriBullet does not make it have more nutrition as advertised :). This is literally a blender with no special feature except weak motors on the low watt model which cost a fortune.

        •  

          @Letrico:

          Because using NutriBullet does not make it have more nutrition as advertised

          Where did I say it has more nutrition ?

          with no special feature except weak motors

          Have you tried one ?

          I have one and the motor isn't weak for what it needs to do… I can throw nuts and seeds in with the vegetables and the final product is as smooth as anything you'd get commercially…

          Maybe the one you tried was a cheap Chinese fake, because there are a lot of those selling on ebay…

        •  

          @jv: Have you watched ever watched the commercials on tv and the websites reviewing NutriBullet?

          I've seen a few type of lines. One says it increases the nutrition you take by blending the food and releasing the nutrients within. Which is false as it is the exact same amount of nutrients as you eat them. It's not a miracle machine, it's a blender.

          Yea you can throw nuts and seeds in, which you can also do with another similar priced blender and best of all, the other blenders are much bigger capacity and you can probably make 4-5x more in a single blend.

          I know a lot of people are buying NutriBullet because 'wow I can consume more nutrition than eating the fruits'. Na, false advertising.

          I don't buy into gimmicks like these, my bro have it and he makes a lot of protein shake for his muscle building. The only reason he uses it is because it is convenient for him since you can use it as a cup after blending. That's the only positive thing for this overpriced blender.

          Most seeds go straight through you when eaten whole.

          If you grind them in this machine or similar ones, your body will absorb more of the nutrients, compared to eating them whole.

          That is what they mean, but obviously because it is a commercial, they add some hype…

          If you don't believe me, go eat some linseeds tonight, and same time tomorrow, have a look inside your poo….

        •  

          @jv: Yea, which is the point I'm trying to make. Nutrition absorption in your body does not work that way but majority of people won't know anyway since they have no knowledge about it.

          The thing I like about Australians, easily fooled by products when the word 'health' is being used excessively.

          That's a bit racist…

          Have you considered that perhaps you are wrong and you have been fooled ?

          @jv: I'm a fellow Australian too and I can't deny that.

          Who do you think will be right, a person with information from a phd nutritionist or the person that get their information from the general public.

          You can sleep on that I'm off to bed. Hopefully I can convince some people to just buy a normal blender which is much more beneficial for the household.

        •  

          @Letrico:

          It's a blender that you can leave on the bench and not lug it in and out of cupboard… easy to wash, comes with a few cups and blends well, targetting people who would like to have a quick blended drink once in a while.

          Price wise is totally subjective… why does this argument come up every time this product comes up?

          A stick blender can be $10 to $200, does that mean everyone should only buy the $10 ones or they are a criminal?

          They are incorrectly advertising false facts but so are all the cosmetic products, go comment on those as well? At least this thing does something haha…

  •  

    I wouldn't recommend it. My nutrininja is 1000 watt and I think below that would already be to little to crash ice and co

  •  

    You can get the 900w version for $143 on ebay.

    Similar blenders are under $30 at Kmart and the reject shop. Aldi also have them from time to time. Save your money 💵

    •  

      how many watt though? bit unfair to compare apples to oranges, also you have supplied no links.
      my in-laws bought a magic bullet or some crap… hardly juices at all…

      that's a neg from me…(gimme some links then i'll happily agree - as I think these things are a bit of a rip off anyways)

    With my experience NutriBullet can't be compared with $30 kmart Or normal blender. It i powerful and can make descent juice. I was having difficulty in drinking veg juice/smoothies when it was blended with normal ones but with NutriBullet it is good with small nuts like chai seeds..its my view

    I am by no means a nutribullet fan. I have a Vitamix and my old man has a nutribullet. Vitamix wins hands down. Yes more expensive but more versatile and built far better. Regardless, if a nutribullet is what it takes to get someone eating more fruit and veg than they otherwise would, I dont think you can put a price on that outcome in terms of health benefit. Nutribullet probably makes a smoother drink than a basic no name $30 blender however. Some merit in breaking down certain foods but not all. Id rather have green smoothies over green roughies.

    guys havent you seen any of the infomertials on tv?
    that is where they thoroughly explain what this machine is and what it actually does.
    this is THE SUPER FOOD EXTRACTOR. That is right ladies and gentleman.
    Using the Turbine Extractors the nutribullet will PULVERISE anything into an instand nutritional superfood.
