Blenders are a great incentive to live healthier. And that health begins with your diet. Blenders are great kitchen appliances that help you prepare a wide variety of healthy meals, drinks and desserts.
What to look for when buying a blender?
Blenders come in a huge variety of models, sizes, features and price ranges. Not all of them are designed for the same purposes and it is up to you to choose the one that meets your specific needs. Here are some aspects to consider when in the market for a blender:
- Container (plastic or glass - both have their benefits and drawbacks)
- Number of watts
- Ice crushing function
- Pulse mode
- Presets for different drinks and foods
- Settings for speed
Nutribullet Pro 900 Overview
The Nutribullet blender is one of the most popular blenders on the market. The Pro 900 is an upgrade version of it, although it does have its pros and cons, compared to the classic Nutribullet. On one hand, the Pro 900 is more powerful than the classic Nutribullet (900 W compared to 600 W). On the other hand, the Pro 900 comes equipped with just one blade instead of 2 found in the first Nutribullet.
The Pro 900 comes in various versions: 9-piece, 13-piece, 15-piece.
Design and features of the Pro 900
The Pro 900 blender is quite minimalist but solid. It is not as light as other blenders we tested as it weighs approximately 7.5 pounds. The base is silver and bronze and, as we’ve already mentioned it, the Pro 900 comes with one stainless steel extractor blade. In the package you get several accessories, such as 2 plastic cups (a 24 oz and a 32 oz cup), 2 storage lids, 2 lip sings and a recipe book.
The one word that can best describe the Pro 900 is simplicity. This blender has no buttons what so ever, it just works by pressing on the cup. The pulse function is built-in and is enabled by pressing once again on the cup while it is blending.
The Pro 900 is great for smoothies, shakes, desserts and more. It can blend fruit, vegetables, seeds and even ice.
Because the Pro 900 is pretty powerful, boasting 900 watts of power, it is not the most silent machine out there. In fact, the Pro 900 is quite noisy, so you might want to think twice if you’re planning to make that smoothie in the morning while everyone else is still asleep.
How much does the Pro 900 cost?
The Nutribullet Pro 900 can be purchased for approximately $80. You get a 30-day money back guarantee when you buy the blender.
