Nutribullet has taken the UK by storm, but what about its rival, the Nutri Ninja? We’ve compared the two using tough lab tests.
The Nutri Ninja has the most powerful motor. But the Nutribullet has the biggest jug. Nutribullet has just the one speed, but are the two speeds you get with the Nutri Ninja a bonus?
The Nutri Ninja is a little chunkier than the Nutribullet, so will be more noticeable on your kitchen worktop. However, it’s smaller than the average blender, so you might find you’re happy for it to live there rather than be stored (and maybe forgotten) in a cupboard.
We’ve tried out both blenders on favourite fruit smoothie recipes – and how they cope with the tougher challenge of blending harder and fibrous ingredients such as raw veg, dates and nuts.

Nutribullet vs Nutri Ninja: Which? says…
Which? researcher Jane Darling said: ‘I found both the Nutribullet and the Nutri Ninja easy to start blending with. The blade screws on and off smoothly on both blenders, and the cup is easy to position ready for blending on both.’
I’m a fan of simplicity, so the single speed of the Nutribullet appealed to me, but some may prefer to have a pulsing option as well, which is what the Nutri Ninja offers.’
Cheap blender alternatives?
The Nutribullet and the Nutri Ninja are both a bit of an investment, at around £100 and £110 respectively. However, there are many other cheaper blenders – including personal blenders and larger conventional blenders – that are worth considering, some of which have been awarded our Best Buy recommendation.
