You could PM ALice and see how she likes it. She seems nice and friendly.

Here's where she had it for a few days.

That looks interesting...if it can blend as well as a vitamix at 1/4 the price - I'd try it.

Please let us know how you like it once you give it a whirl :)

I have a regular Magic Bullet. I tried it for nut grinding awhile back, and thought that the blender worked better. Then, last week, after having seen one of those informercial type things while watching the Olympics, I thought, why not try it with something that's supposed to end up liquid, so I put some vegetables, fruit, a little water and ice into the Tall Cup, screwed on the 4 prong, stuck it in the power base, and ended up with a smoothie that was pretty good, and didn't cost what the extra special blender cost that the guy was hawking on TV.

This is a fairly easy and convenient way to get a serving of raw vegetables into you for breakfast, which my metabolism likes. You add just a bit of fruit to make it taste sweeter. We have had some really bad air quality here from forest fires' smoke last week, and I'm being pretty careful with everything I eat during that time, because eating the wrong thing can make my breathing worse.

The odd part is my SKIN really seems to like this, and it's noticeably smoother.

These are some of the things I've put in it so far:

Spinach

bibb lettuce

tomato

banana

apple

blueberries

cherries (easy to cut the cherry away from the pits on 4 or 5 of them with a sharp knife)

cucumber

red bell pepper

parsley

fresh mint leaves

swiss chard

snow pea pods

I thought I should add that I am using proportions of about 2/3 vegetable to 1/3 fruit, and after that is put in there, adding a small amount of water so the water is coming up about 1/4 of the way around the fruit/veg, then adding 1 to 2 ice cubes- if the vegetables and fruit are cold already, it does not take much ice at all. You can also freeze the fruit chunks before adding, but I have tried just putting a piece of banana in the fridge beforehand to chill it.

My husband got this "Magic Bullet" thing for me as a gift several years ago, and at the time I thought, oh, uhm, I think my Oster blender is going to be able to do that, but this little thing is pretty handy for a single serving smoothie, now that I finally tried it for something else.

I don't think I'd want to use it for garlic/onions unless I had extra grinding knife bases, as the flavor would be getting into the plastic, that is the one downfall I could see. (It comes with 2 of them, a 2 blade and a 4 blade) I also will not be putting anything into it that I thought may have any chance of gluten cross contamination, because the design could make it a little tricky to thoroughly clean under the blades fixed into the base. That is the same problem with the coffee grinder I use on buckwheat, when I was accidentally using buckwheat which was "packed in the same facility as zzzz" and the base is not submersible in water. I got a second inexpensive coffeegrinder, the least obnoxious to use, and I can see that this different design has real potential to trap stuff, too, this time in the catch cup. :angry:

Of course, you never wear out the appliances you don't like.....

    • As a GI specialty nurse who also has celiac I can tell you that it can not be diagnosed by CT and rarely unless you have severe disease can it be diagnosed by colonoscopy.  Those that have had it diagnosed by colonoscopy have such because their MDs were above to get into the small bowel from the bottom and take biopsys.  Celiac damage is not seen in the large intestine.  Also many people do not have diarrhea, many have constipation or a 50/50 mix between the two.  Celiac has 300 connected symptoms and sometimes no symptoms at all.  It's called the " great pretender" because of this.
    • Okay, thanks! I am 24 but my husband and I don't plan on having kids. However, the more I thought about it, the more I think I should get one for my brother's sake. Especially after my doctor's office called this evening to say my bloodwork tested positive for Celiac. Guess I will be on this forum longer than I thought!
    • You just got diagnosed Celiac and are wondering how serious this really is. What if there is just a little gluten in your food? What if you use the same toaster for your gluten-free bread as your wife's/husband's regular bread? What if those french fries are gluten-free but they fry them in the same fryer as those nice gluten coated onion rings? View the full article
    • Hi, I've never been on a forum before but thought I might find some answers here.  I have never been tested for celiac but a nurse practitioner I saw a few years ago told me she thought I would benefit from a gluten free diet.  At first, I thought I could never do this but after some encouragement I did try.  I did feel much better after going gluten free.  She never tested me for celiac. I turned 50 years old last year and I had a colonoscopy for the first time and had three polyps removed.  The surgeon said that my colon looked like I was a chronic laxative user.  I haven't used a laxative for a very long time.  I was at the time drinking a natural tea to help me to have bowel movements.  Before starting the tea I had always had difficulty with bowel movements and never had them once a day but with the tea I was able to go once a day. At the end of last month I developed severe pain after I would eat (I had my gallbladder removed at the age of 19).  One night the pain got so bad my husband had to drive me to the ER.  My liver functions were high as well as a few other things.  They did a CT scan of my abdomen and pelvis that showed wall thickening of my transverse colon and minimal irregularity involving the transverse colon.  My descending and sigmoid colon were collapsed.  There were a few tiny mesenteric lymph nodes present on the right.  They diagnosed me officially with colitis but said that most likely I had a gallstone (even though I don't have a gallbladder) that had come from the liver and had gotten stuck in the common bile duct (it did not show up on the CT scan).  I usually have a high ferritin level too.  I've been home from the hospital stay for about a month now and still have tenderness in the epigastric area. Some of this may not have anything to do with celiac but was wondering if anyone has been diagnosed with celiac by CT scan or colonoscopy or if anyone has had the same problems that I have had and found out what has caused it.  I cannot see the gastroenterologist who saw me in the hospital for a couple of months.  Can you have celiac and not have diarrhea as I am just the opposite? Any help would be appreciated!  Thanks!  
    • I had an acne flair up after going gluten free but it ended up improving and some long-term back acne I had been dealing with actually went away.  I think going gluten free was a shock to my system and at first I actually felt worse but after about a month things got better.
