Magic Bullet Review
Written by: Camille Hansen
Imagine planning a summer party for a hot summer’s day. A small group of friends will be over soon. You’ve got the hot dogs, hamburgers, salad and condiments ready to go. Setting up the chairs, canopy, and tables is a breeze. Oh no! You forgot to buy soda at the store. Luckily your kitchen’s stocked with fixings for spectacular smoothies and a trusty Magic Bullet to blend and serve them in.
That’s right the Magic Bullet saves the day again. This easy to use blender mixes anything in 10 seconds. The zero button technology leaves no difficulty for the user, twist a blade on a cup, then press the upside down cup onto the lockable power base for hands free blending. With process of quick cutting the Magic Bullet can blend dips, smoothies, sauces, juices, salads, and much more.
Check out this clip explaining more blending options:
The Magic bullet comes with power base, tall and short bullet cups, cross blade, flat blade, shaker/steamer tops, stay fresh lids, 4 Party Mugs, bullet blender, bullet juicer and The Magic Bullet “10 Second Recipe” Book. It also comes in the Baby Bullet edition. This edition purees baby food within a matter of seconds, and is BPA free.

The Magic Bullet boasts some really awesome features. The easy to use and speed factor makes it really convenient for small parties and personal use.
Unfortunately these mini blenders stop working soon after purchase, they break easily, since the base comes in plastic, and the motor wears out after very few uses. Limited to what it can grind, you need to be sure not to overload this blender. Especially if you are making a smoothie with ice. The motor starts smelling of burnt plastic after blending for 10 seconds and the blades leave chunks in the smoothies. To replace it, you will need to buy a new magic bullet, as the manufacturer doesn’t replace parts.
Cuisine Art® SmartPower® more durable personal blender and the Hamilton Beach Personal Blender 51101 may be worth looking into for smaller blender options.
With the Magic Bullet in mind, carefully weigh your options before buying this product. The price of a full sized blender might be worth the cost of replacing the Magic Bullet.
