NutriBullet5 of 7
If you've been up at the wee hours of the morning channel surfing, chances are you've seen the infomercial on the NutriBullet. As cheesy as the commercial may be, this blender actually works. Cube up your fruit, throw it in the cup, screw the milling blade, and press down to blend. The cups are easy to take with you. The lid isn't a sip lid, which makes drinking your smoothie in the car impossible. But you can take your drink with you and sip while at work. It's easy to clean. If the milling blade breaks, you have to replace the whole system, can't just order the one part. "I make so many smoothies, sauces and frozen cocktails. Works great, but after a couple years my blade broke, so I had to purchase a whole new system. But I liked it that much to get another NutriBullet." - Mike, engineer, runner and golfer.
