The Nutribullet is a nice size blender that lets you make individual smoothies quickly. Rather than transferring the smoothie from a large pitcher to a glass, you just drink it straight from the cup. It comes with three cups so that everyone can have their own personal smoothies made with different ingredients. While it has a fairly powerful motor, it doesn't blend everything as much as I would like. If you add flax seeds or berries with a lot of seeds, you will still feel the texture even when it's blended completely. I stick to softer fruits when using the Nutribullet because they seem to blend just fine. It comes with two different blades. I use the emulsifying blade the most, since it is for making smoothies. It also comes with a milling blade for making your own flour, but I haven't gotten into that. I have found that the milling blade works great for grinding coffee though. One of its flaws is that if one of the teeth on the edge of the cup breaks, it won't work. It needs all three teeth to lock it into place and activate the motor. I really like the small size and the fact that you can drink straight from the cup. You can make smoothies in just a couple of minutes and it's really easy to clean up. Its convenience is by far its biggest advantage.
