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.....
