Weighing almost 4kg and costing nearly £200, the Nutribullet Rx is heftiest of the burgeoning Nutribullet family. Unlike its siblings, this blender can heat up your soup as well as blend it. But what’s it like at the other end of the temperature scale — can it crush ice for those delicious summer smoothies?

The Nutri Ninja Pro Complete BL488 is a souped-up version of the original Nutri Ninja. We found it very straightforward to use, but is it a good at blending? Read on to find out how it compares against its Nutribullet rivals as well as its Ninja siblings.

Nutribullet vs Nutri Ninja - what's the difference?

The mighty Nutribullet Rx packs the most power of these six blenders - at 1700W. And once it's blended your soup, it can heat it up. However it weighs in at close to 4kg, so isn't exactly a handy little personal blender, and you'll have to part with around £200 to get one. 

The largest of the Nutri Ninja family - the Pro Complete - has an 1100W motor and is substantially lighter (2.9kg) and cheaper than the Nutribullet Rx - around £120.

The Nutribullet Pro 900 and Nutri Ninja Auto IQ are similar in terms of power, weight and jug capacity, though you have a choice of three speed settings with the Ninja. Having more than one speed can increase the versatility of your blender, as you have more control for making things like mayonnaise.

The smallest of the Nutribullets, the 600 comes with two handy 300ml containers - great for smoothies for one, while the Nutri Ninja BL450UK's smallest cup is at bulkier 500ml.

If space is a priority, it's worth knowing that the Nutribullet blenders are slightly more compact than the Nutri Ninja versions, so will take up less space in your kitchen.

We tested all six blenders on popular fruit smoothie recipes and with tougher ingredients such as ginger, ice, nuts and leafy greens.  To find out more about the rigours we put all our tested blenders through, go to how we test blenders.

Are cheaper blenders worth considering?

The Nutribullet and Nutri Ninja blenders are undeniably popular, but if you don't want the price tag that comes with them, there are plenty of alternative models to consider.

Our tests have uncovered some brilliant cheaper personal or mini blenders - we've even found some decent models for less than £20. To find the best blender for your needs and your budget check out our blender reviews.
