Power and Performance
The Magic Bullet has a 200 watt power base with a 2,000 RPM. It is not so powerful compared to later model bullet blenders such as the NutriBullet 600, but the price reflects this and so you do have to understand what you’re paying for.
The Magic Bullet blender can do a lot of kitchen tasks in about 10 seconds.
This machine works well with softer ingredients such as bananas, berries, batter, almond milk…etc. It can also perform as a grinder for coffee beans and some other dried things, but the smoothness and consistency wouldn’t be there.
It does not do well with blending greens, and so green smoothies will be a bit lumpy.
How Loud Is it?
Powerful blending machines are generally noisy, and this one is not an exception. It doesn’t work discreetly, and it’s noise levels are at about 93 decibels, which is just slightly above the average of 88 decibels.
Using The Machine
The Magic Bullet 17-piece set comes with many accessories including a tall (18oz) and short (12oz) jar, 4 party mugs (16oz), and a 10-second recipe book. It comes with 1 flat and 1 cross blade, the cross blade to blend smoothies, and the flat blade to grind and crush things.
Easy To Use
It has a very simple design which makes it very easy to set up and use. To start using all you have to do is place it on your kitchen counter and plug in the power cord.
Easy to Clean
Besides the power base, all the parts are dishwasher safe, this makes cleaning up super easy. The blades twists off the jars separately and they can both be washed easily.
It is important to only wash them on the top rack on the regular setting, as the bottom could get hot enough to damage the jars. If the power base needs cleaning, just use a damp cloth to wipe off any debris.
What’s In The Box?
The Magic Bullet 17-piece set includes…
- 1 Power Base
- 1 large 18oz Jar
- 1 Small 12oz Jar
- 4 16oz Party Mugs
- 4 Colored Lip Rings
- 1 Flat Blade
- 1 Cross Blade
- 2 Vented Shaker Tops

This machine includes a 1 year warranty, this is not very long at all. But if you buy it on Amazon, you can purchase an additional 4 years of coverage in case of mechanical or electrical failures.
If you’re buying on Amazon, you may find bundles with 17-pieces or 26-pieces of accessories, the latter which includes an ice shaver blade. These accessories can also be bought separately on their own.
Great Deal For The Money
The price for this machine is very reasonable for everything you’re getting. It is great for people who wants to start making smoothies and other healthy drinks, but not ready to commit to a mega-expensive blender.
It does come with a 1-year warranty and a lot of people uses it and never had to replace it until the motor stops working. But keep in mind that the lifespan isn’t supposed to be that long, you do get what you pay for.
If you’re just blending protein shakes and soft foods, The Magic Bullet will do just fine. But if you wanna blend greens, nuts, seeds, and other denser ingredients, The Magic Bullet cannot offer the smooth and consistence texture that the more powerful NutriBullet can.
Ultimately, for everything you’re getting with The Magic Bullet 17-piece set bundle, I’d say it’s a great deal for the price.
This machine can take over simple time-consuming and boring tasks for you such as chopping onions and mincing garlic, this makes cooking easier and simpler.
Bottom line is it can do a of things, but the disadvantage remains at it’s low 200 watt power base. But while it may not be the most powerful blender on the market, it does make up for it with it’s budget-friendly price.
The conclusion is that different people have different needs, and while this machine may not be suitable for some people, I can see how it may fit others quite well.
If the 250 watt power base is a turn off for you, perhaps you’ll be more interested in The NutriBullet (600 watts), The NutriBullet Pro (900 watts), or The NutriBullet RX (1,700 watts)
