Nutribullet blenders - what's the difference?
There are five models to choose from, ranging from the original Nutribullet 600, which we've found for as little as £40, up to the top-of-the-range Nutribullet Rx, which costs more like £170.
Each blender comes with an assortment of different-sized blending cups with sports lids to convert them into travel mugs, and a recipe book. The Nutribullet 600 and 900 are both available with different-sized accessory packs, so if you want additional beakers or lids, you can opt for a bumper pack at a slightly higher price.
As you go up the range you get more features and extra blending capacity. The Nutribullet Rx, 1000 series and 1200 series blenders can make several portions in one go. The Rx can also make hot soup from scratch in less than 10 minutes, while the 1000 and 1200 series include an insulated stainless-steel travel cup designed to keep your smoothies ice-cold when you're out and about.
- Capacity - 0.6 litres
- Weight - 2kg
- Features - 600W motor, one speed setting, two blades (wet/dry), one large plastic blending cup, two 0.3-litre blending cups, two comfort rings (for drinking), two lids. Available in grey, black, white or red. All dishwasher safe except blades
The Nutribullet 600 is the smallest and quietest of the Nutribullet family. If you don't want to spend too much, but want the convenience of a personal blender, this popular little model might be just the ticket. But does the less powerful motor mean that it can't handle hard or fibrous ingredients? Or is it the original and the best?

- Capacity - 0.7 litres (measured. Stated capacity a little over 0.9 litres)
- Weight - 2.6kg
- Features - 900W motor, one speed setting, two blades (wet/dry), two tall plastic blending cups, one smaller blending cup, various lids and several lips with handles. All dishwasher safe except blades. Large hardback book filled with recipes and information about health and wellbeing
The Nutribullet 900 is a step up in terms of power and capacity from its little brother, the 600. However, it's also a significant step up in terms of price. It's claimed to create less aeration and therefore give its blends a purer consistency. If you want a bit more room to play with, and are comforted by the idea of more power behind the blades, this blender could be tempting.
We've found that more power doesn't always equal a better blend. Before you splash out, discover whether this Nutribullet is worth the extra investment by reading our detailed Nutribullet Pro 900 review.
- Capacity - 1.3 litres
- Weight - 3.8kg
- Features - 1,700W motor, one speed setting, one blade (plus blade remover), one tall plastic blending cup ('souperblast pitcher'), two additional blending/drinking cups, comfort lip ring (for drinking), travel lids, heating element for making hot soup from scratch. Everything dishwasher safe except blade. A hardback recipe book and blade-cleaning brush also supplied
Much more powerful than its siblings, the Nutribullet Rx could be a great choice if you want to get on board with the recent 'souping' trend. It has a built-in heating element that lets you cook hot soup from scratch in seven minutes.
It's a weighty blender - not far off 4kg - and is tall, too, at 47cm when the biggest blending cup is in position. Moving it around is cumbersome, so you'd probably want to make room for it on your kitchen worktop. The extra accessories mean you'll need some spare cupboard space, too.
It's a premium price for a blender, so is it worth it? Find out in the full Nutribullet Rx review.
- Capacity - 0.9 litres
- Weight - 2.8g
- Features - 1,000W motor, one speed setting, features 'Smart Technology', designed to adapt automatically to the type of ingredients being blended, two blending cups: 930ml plastic cup and an 820ml insulated stainless-steel cup, one lid with flip-top for drinking on the move
The Nutribullet 1000 Series launched towards the end of 2016, along with the 1200 series blender. It's the first Nutribullet to offer an insulated blending cup as part of the deal. The double-wall stainless steel cup is designed to keep your drinks cool on-the-go. The 1000 series has a bigger motor than the original Nutribullet 600, but you may find the larger cups a bit oversized for carrying around.
The Nutribullet 1200 Series is a more premium version of the 1000 series, with a more powerful 1,200W motor and an extra blending cup with handle.
- Capacity - 0.9 litres
- Weight - 2.8g
- Features - 1,200W motor, one speed setting, features smart nutrition monitoring, so you can track your smoothies macro and micro nutrients of your smoothies via the Nutribullet Balance app, two 930ml plastic blending cups, one lid with flip-top for drinking on the move
The Balance might look almost identical to previous Nutribullet blenders, but its smart features set it apart from the pack. Using a built-in weighing scale and Bluetooth connectivity, it will take all the work out of tracking the nutritional information of your smoothies, which will be sent directly to the Nutribullet app.
All Nutribullets come with a wealth of blending advice and recipes, but the Balance takes this a few steps further. The app includes hundreds of recipes, and allows you to filter based on personal wellness goals such as weight-loss or heart health, as well as dairy-free, vegan, nuts and other allergens. In fact, whatever specialised diet you wish to follow, from low-carb to high-protein to lactose-free, the Balance aims to cater to your needs.
Is the most expensive Nutribullet worth the every penny, or will being drawn in by its smart features work out to be an unwise decision? Find out in the full Nutribullet Balance review.
Which Nutribullet is best?
Which Nutribullet is right for you depends on how much you want to spend, and whether you just want to make speedy single-portion smoothies or a wider range of drinks, snacks and soups. Nutribullet blenders are pricier than a lot of rivals, so you'll want to be sure your money is well spent, too.
We've put the five Nutribullet blenders through our independent lab tests, so you can easily compare them using our Nutribullet blender reviews. We challenged each blender to tackle tough ingredients, such as leafy greens, ginger and ice, as well as nuts and frozen berries, so you know whether they'll handle the demands of your daily smoothie.
We also assess how good they are at whipping up soup, crushing ice and blending drier mixes, such as pesto. And it's not just the blend that matters. We'll tell you if they are excessively noisy or tricky to clean, so your path to smoothie nirvana is as smooth as it can be.
If you frequently use your Nutribullet, the manufacturer recommends that you replace the blade unit every six months to maintain ‘optimal performance’. Not replacing it can cause leaks as the rubber seal in the blade unit becomes less effective over time. The cost of a replacement blade unit is around £10-£15 depending on the model.
