The short answer, for most people, is the 900-watt NutriBullet Pro. It offers the best price-to-performance ratio of any NutriBullet—or other brand of personal blender for that matter—which is why it’s been our top pick since our personal-blender review first published. But to give you the long answer, we put all four NutriBullet models—including two we hadn’t tested before—through their paces side by side.
To start, here’s a breakdown of the basic differences between each of the four NutriBullet models:
|NutriBullet (original)||Nutribullet Pro 900 (our pick)||NutriBullet Rx||NutriBullet Balance|
|Wattage||600 watts||900 watts||1,700 watts||1,200 watts|
|Blending cup sizes (Amazon)||One 24 oz. cup, two 18 oz. cups||Two 32 oz. cups||One 30 oz. cup, one 45 oz “oversized cup,” one approx. 55 oz. pitcher||Two 32 oz. cups|
|Flip-top travel lids (Amazon)||None||Two||None||Two|
|Blades (Amazon)||One blending blade, one flat (milling) blade||One blending blade||One blending blade||One blending blade|
|Other accessories (Amazon)||Two lids, one regular lip ring, one handled lip ring||Two regular lip rings, two handled lip rings||One pitcher lid (for 45 oz. cup), one regular lip ring (for 30 oz. cup), two-piece lid (for 55 oz. pitcher), one lid, one blade remover, one blade brush||Two regular lip rings|
For our original guide, we tested a total of 10 personal blenders, but only two NutriBullets: the original 600-watt NutriBullet and 900-watt NutriBullet Pro. These are the company’s top-selling and perennially available models, which is why we originally chose to test them over the larger, more expensive, and less popular NutriBullet Rx. The Bluetooth-enabled NutriBullet Balance simply wasn’t yet available when we did our initial personal-blender testing (it came out in late 2017). But we’ve gotten enough questions about the various NutriBullet models over the years that we decided to bring all four of them into our test kitchen for comparison. As you’ll see in the results below, specs like wattage don’t tell you everything about how a blender performs. In our testing, the Pro was still a clear winner.
