Nutribullet Alternatives – Best premium and high performing personal blenders

We take a look at some of the best Nutrient Extractors or Personal Blenders to rival that of the well known Nutribullet.

Not your typical blenders, these personal blenders are smaller and more powerful than some of the conventional blenders.

It uses a detachable blade and cup like containers  instead of permanent blades in a pitcher like jug typical of your standard blenders.

This allows the ingredients to be added into the container and sealed with the lid with blade attachment. It will then need to be turned upside down and pushed down into the base.

Depending on the make and model, some blenders turn on automatically when the container is pressed down, others are activated with buttons and/or dial.

For pulsing action, simple press and release the container, or use the pulse button. The personal blender will turn out smooth and consistent blend of smoothie or puree in seconds.

As it only works with small portions of fruits, vegetables, nuts of ice, enough for one or two servings it prepares the food in super quick time everytime, great for morning cups to go.

Turn the container upright again, release the lid with blade and replace it with a sip and seal lid included its ready. No need to transfer from jug to mug or jug and less washing and cleaning to do.

The popular NutriBullet 600 series is available in 5, 8 or 12 piece set. It is powered by a 600 Watt motor that produces a cyclonic action during blending. The blender is the cheapest offering from the company. We recommend the 8 piece set as it comes with travel cups, one tall (680ml) and one short  (611ml) with stay fresh lids.

High-End High-Performance Personal Blenders

Apart from NutriBullet, the premium personal blender list is pretty much dominated by Nutri Ninja, Ninja’s range of personal blenders. This is followed by the cheap and less powerful cousin to the Nutribullet, the Magic Bullet Blender. Using the same cyclonic action as the Nutribullet, the Magic Bullet Blender offers nearly the same result at slower speed. Finally, there is Vitamix S55, from the company that brought us commercial blenders for use at home. Think Starbucks, Jamba Juice, Baskin-Robbins blenders and imagine it smaller. The cheaper Vitamix S30 is equally popular from Vitamix’s S-series and available in red or black. Let’s take a look at each of these blenders.

1. Nutri Ninja Pro BL455 1000Watt

Nutri Ninja’s personal blender range can divided into two distinct groups, the Nutri Ninja Pro and Nutri Ninja with Auto IQ. Other blenders (not just personal blenders) from Ninja include Ninja Ultima, Ninja Compact Kitchen System with Nutri Ninja and Nutri Ninja 2-in-1. These are blenders with bigger base units or different orientation and profile.

A highly rated model from the Nutri Ninja Pro range is the BL455.

4. Vitamix S30 Personal Blender 790Watt (Black or Red)

Vitamix’s first foray into personal blenders, sees the company combine its legendary durability and performance into the S-series, a small blender by Vitamix’s. Create single or double servings of your favourite smoothie recipe to go with a 20 oz container. Also included is the 40 oz container for a complete kitchen blender system The 40oz container is a conventional blender jug with lid, access cover and handle. The 20 oz travel jug comes an easy pop-open lid with hanger. The S30 personal blender features variable speed controls and pulse control. The higher S55 on the other hand include 4 pre-programmed settings apart from variable speed controls and pulse control but only available in one colour (Silver).

A feature that makes the Vitamix stands out from other blender here is the metal drive system. Instead of plastic components that wear out quickly, Vitamix chose a metal drive just like those found in bigger models to connect the container to the motor base allowing for transfer of power and longer lifespan. Coupled with a longer lasting motor, the blender is guaranteed to serve you for years.

5. Magic Bullet Blender (Silver, Red or Green) 250Watt 

From the same company that brought us the NutriBullet, the Magic Bullet is more affordable but not as powerful. However, it does use the same cyclone technology when blending and has all the qualities of its more expensive cousin with a more agreeable price tag. While there are cheaper personal blenders, the Magic Bullet Blender is the cheapest personal blenders in our Premium Personal Blender list here.
