The powerful 1700 watt motor of the Nutribullet RX blender has proven to be a loved feature by customers.
The motor is capable of handling frozen ingredients and ice and emulsifying it to a smooth paste.
Customers reported that their smoothies came out with no chunks or grits and attributed the blender’s powerful motor.
The Nutribullet RX blender is one of the most versatile models on the market in terms of accessory and function.
Firstly, the blender comes with 3 jars in different sizes that can prepare meals for a single person or their entire family.
Secondly, the blender also comes with “stay-fresh-lids” which helps your smoothie remain fresh for longer. This is very useful for people who prepare large servings of smoothies at once and leave leftovers for later.
Finally, the Souperblast feature which allows you to prepare soup with your blender is the icing on the cake. Once you’ve placed your ingredients in the soup pitcher, set your pitcher on the blender’s base and initiate the soup mode.
Viola, soup is ready in 7 minutes.
This is one of the features of the blender that makes it high-end.
The SMART technology is responsible for the blender’s auto start and stop feature.
Simply place the jar on the base and it will automatically start blending your ingredients in a pre-programmed setting.
This feature is great for people with on the go lives who need to multitask at all times.
The 1700 watt motor is a powerful one and it makes a lot of noise.

You can try to minimize the noise level of the blender by placing a rubber mat under the blender and using a sound enclosure box.

And the blender comes with a cookbook filled with healthy soup and smoothie recipes.
In terms of the warranty, the blender comes with a standard 1-year warranty that covers most personal blenders.
The warranty addresses any defects in the material or workmanship of the blender.
We admit this is a short period but the short warranty period may make the blender more affordable.

Ease of Use and Cleaning
These 2 features are not uncommon to the Nutribullet brand.
The one-touch button and hands-free technology makes using the blender very easy. A good feature for people who don’t want to go through much hassle for a smoothie.
Cleaning the blender only requires soap and water. And the blender’s accessories are top-rack dishwasher safe, making it easy to clean as well.
