    My wife and I have been using the Magic bullet for years and years. It took lots of bearings and has helped create many awesome recipes. Finally, after all this, the base broke. We had lots of cups and blades but without the motorized base they were useless. We figured this was the time to see what else was out there and we bought a similar item of a different brand. It only came with 2 cups and within a week 1 broke. That was all it took for me to come back and I ordered this Magic Bullet set the next day. It showed up a day earlier than expected and we're back to smoothies every morning. All the old cups and bases work with the new, and vise-versa. Plus, the motorized base is more robust than the previous one (again, which lasted many years). I couldn't be happier and for the price offered on Best Buy, it's a deal and a half!

    This is my second Magic Bullet blender. ( The first one I had over 5 years started sparking ). It's the only one I know of where you can heat containers in the microwave . I use it mostly to quickly melt coconut oil and butter and then blend with hot brewed coffee every morning for my Keto coffee fix. Just make sure you don't exceed the fill line , blend quickly and be sure to SLOWLY open the container away from your face ( over a sink for extra insurance ) as the steam can be very HOT. I'm rating at only four stars because blades on the model I purchased from Best Buy are smaller than on the original one I owned which I purchased from an infomercial. ( I hope this is an intentional design change and not a knock off "clone" look alike). For extra insurance and assurance, I went ahead and purchased the extended warranty.

    A decent option when on sale

    The blender is somewhat cheapy but is a great blender for occasional use for smoothies and shakes. It would make a good option for a starter blender or college dorm. Parts will eventually wear out or slight leaks may happen from the cup after a year or two, depending on usage. Ice can be blended, but blades will dull faster and it is probably harder on the motor. Never fill more than 2/3 full to prolong motor life. For the price, you can't complain too much. A serious blender like a Vitamix will last for many years and produce very smooth smoothies.

    The small blender that started it all

    I remember when I first purchase this thing back in the mid 2000's. Well, my older one died so I purchase a new one. It was such a great concept. Easy clean up and pretty powerful. Well, I wanted to start having smoothies on the go meaning using my truck's power and a ice chest full of frozen fruit to have a smoothie no matter where I was. Well, that didn't work since my inverter wasn't strong enough to power this. But all in all I still love the thing. The only thing to remember is not to over fill and make sure enough liquid is present to blend it into a nice texture.

    I got this to replace a generic smoothie maker that died. Rather than go with another generic which was $10 cheaper I opted for a brand that has been around for a while. However, I was disappointed how few containers this came with vs. the generic, but thankfully the containers from my dead one fit this one, so I'm pretty happy overall because of that. The one feature this one has vs. the generic is the extra sheath where the cord comes out of the base. That's why the old one died - the cord eventually frayed. I don't expect this one to die for the same reason.

    There is a learning curve to the product, you need to shake between pulsing salsa and other "chunky dips" or else you will end up with "Salsa Milkshake" but once I learned how to also cut the vegetables to the correct size, it started to really work for me! The ease and convenience of use is fabulous. There is WAY less time spent washing dishes with this, and it is the perfect answer to "Pre-Dinner Munchies".....my favorite is to whip up salsa or guacamole while I make dinner! Whatever you make in it will taste SUPER fresh!

    Does what it says it does

    I have used this for a few weeks now with no problems. My usage frequency is about once every couple of days. The unit does appear to have a little trouble and takes a little more time than expected breaking through thicker ice. A smoothie prepared in frozen blocks will take more like 5 to 10 minutes. It is easy to clean and more convenient than using a large blender, which was my reason for the purchase.

    I had a Bullet previously for 4-5 years and used it almost daily, mostly to make smoothies and blendies. I wore out the 4-prong blade and got another one. The motor in that one wore out recently when hubby ran he device too long grinding flour. He'll never make that mistake again! Nevertheless, I feel like I still got good use out of the old one and obviously bought a new one (for less than the first one!). I think the latest version with just a few cups is better than the old version with so many cups I never used. The new top with the sipping lid is terrific!

    Not powerful at all

    Sadly, my cheaper version of this (Bella) worked way better than Magic Bullet. This machine is really weak and wobbly. Frequently, you have to tap and shake items for it to even blend them, let alone chopping etc. I am quite disappointed. I am not sure about all the positive comments people have given - there's no way it makes smoothies smooth with regular fruits, forget putting in frozen fruits.

    l have a full size blender but it is so big and cumbersome and I don't like to have a bunch of appliances crowding my counter space. So I have to lug out my big bulky one every time. This is so small it's easy peasy to whip up a smoothie anytime. take it to work and make it there it use one of the convenient accessories to carry it already pre made. works great!

    I was looking for something small since i don't have much counter space and i saw the stars on this product and decided to go with it. I am so happy i did! Its small and it does the job. I make a lot of salsa for almost all our foods and this magic bullet makes them quick. Blends well. I also make protein shakes for my husband. He thought it was small but once i made it, i poured it in a ninja cup and it filled the whole cup up. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a small individual blender

    I will make a smoothie every time after I workout. This blender is adequate. The blades are small so it will take me longer to make a smoothie. I frequently have to shake the cup to move the ingredients around in order for the blades to be able to chop everything up. The cups are both small in size which was a little disappointing. Overall, the blender serves the purpose.

    I bought this from the store shelf while shopping for both a smoothie maker and a way to create patès for my 99 year-old mother. She tends to pouch food due to dementia. Not only does this device foot the bill, but clean-up is a snap as the bullet containers that double as cups or drink holders go staright into the dishwasher. The set is so convenient. I am now searching for additional cups/drink holders to add to this collection.

    Have used Magic Bullet for about 4 years now, I’m on my second. And that’s not a knock on the quality, We make so many different things, like salsa, baby food, protein shakes, etc. we really got our money’s worth. The only difference from the nutri-bullet is the motor size/speed. But the quality is just as good. Save yourself a few bucks.

    My wife wanted this blender, to avoid having to pull out the full sized one and I thought it would mostly sit around. Not so, this thing is powerful and exceptionally easy to use. In fact, we have been using it almost daily for breakfast shakes. Blends frozen fruit in smoothies with ease. Very nice indeed! Probably one of my favorite kitchen gadgets to date!

    Go for the Nutribullet Instead

    I already own a Nutribullet and bought this machine to be a light-duty unit for use at my office. I used it twice and returned it. My Nutribullet quickly handles ice cubes, veggies, or just about anything else I've thought to stuff in there. This one couldn't manage to completely grind down the ice. I was left with small little balls of ice in my smoothie. Just spend a few more dollars and get the nutribullet. It's worth it.

    Needs More Power

    Purchased 6 weeks ago. Been using daily for fruit smoothies. From the beginning, the machine has struggled to blend the frozen fruit; eventually it was smooth, but took several minutes. motor is now much louder than 6 weeks ago. I had one a few years ago. I immediately noticed this one did not have the power of the previous model. I can only guess the motor is not the same. I am returning the machine.

    I had saw this thing advertised years previous and always thought it was a gimmick. My wife asked for it for her birthday so I got her one and she loves it, I tried it and I love it we were even talking about getting a second one for use at work or out at family member's houses. The first day I used this thing I put my older blender back into storage, in fact I'm using it now.

    Not really much to say here. It works as I expected it to, I use it every day to make a (or two) fruit smoothies. I have not had any issues with it in the month or so that I have had it. Happy with this purchase. I guess the only thing I would say about it is I would have wished to have more of the large mixer cup rather than then the smaller. But certainly not a breaking point for how this item works.
