The nutri ninja still does a good job and you get the feelgood factor of having a well known brand.
Good price.

My first venture into a healthy, blitzing, fruit, veg, smoothie fad. Wonder how long it will last...

Looks like very. I'm not buying from there because they just want to make you buy on credit etc and feels like a subsidiary of very, who I'm boycotting because they are dodgy.

​I bought the ninja on offer from john lewis 2 yr gtee and price match. I was told if anything goes wrong with it they dont send it for repair, they give you a brand new one in store. That alone for me helped me decide. I also did alot of research and the ninja/nutribullet were v similar, however you need a 1000 motor to crush ice and to mix frozen fruit.

I was always told you needed a 1000w motor to do frozen fruit and ice but the 300w breville deals with it easily
Picked up one of these before Christmas at The Range for £29.99, been really pleased with it, used it at least weekly but more recently daily. Does ice and frozen fruit effortlessly. Most blends take less than 10 seconds, it's very easy to clean, and you don't need to hold it as it blends (though I tend to as it's so quick). Would have been happy with it at twice the price. only criticism would be that the portable cup lids are a bit silly, the flip up lid kept hitting me on the nose when I used it as it would flip back down! Just enjoying pear, apple, cucumber and orange juice drink right now made from it

It's a perfect component for your shakes, add anything to it afterwards, seems a good way of getting your carbs/fats/proteins in a drink... not just fruit and veg!
The actual Nutri Bullet works out as circa £43 at Sainsburys at the moment I believe? If you use a new customer voucher

I was gutted to have missed that deal.
Bought one of these yesterday after it was mentioned in this thread: hotukdeals.com/dea…594

@Berhwale also mentioned (post #104) that you can get a second set of cups for £8.99 (plus postage) from Robert Dyas using code RDNEWS10.

You sound like you think you are clued up..

I believe the point (for most people) is a blend of fruit and veg, just so you know. And if the choice is fresh fruit and veg or a processed meal/cake/whatever then it's clear which ones are going to be better for you

does it blend mars bars and ice cream with a dollop of cornish cream? if so that is breakfast sorted....

Until someone substitutes entire meals for fruit based smoothies because it's "healthier", not realising that sugar is still sugar even if it's fructose. And you can cram more into your gob as a liquid without feeling full than you can in cake form.

As always, it comes down to making educated food choices, this is just a tool.

Can apply that logic to all foods and diets, it's all about balance and moderation.

These blends /smoothies can be very healthy as part of a balanced diet, whereas cake (for example) is unlikely to be part of a healthy diet.

Having said that, I use ours for nuttella and ice cream milkshakes quite often - just because! (_;)
I got this from a Robert Dyas offer on here last year (came to less than £40 delivered).

I've used it every day since and find it excellent. I can't really see any downsides or how it could be significantly bettered, particularly at this price. It comes with only one set of blades (I think the expensive Nutribullets may come with a spare blade base ?). It seems solid enough and well made with good rubber suction feet that stop it vibrating on the kitchen surface.

It's very powerful at 1000w and demolishes frozen fruit / ice / nuts etc. in seconds and leaves no little bits (eg nuts) either .. just a smooth liquid to drink :-).

However it is best to add liquid to frozen fruit/veg etc to keep the smoothie at least pourable, otherwise you end up with a thick paste that the motor will slow slightly and get quite hot. I use semi or skimmed milk, Almond milk or Coconut milk for this rather than water.

It comes with three beakers, the largest being 1 litre ... so this is an advantage if you want to make smoothies for two !

I find it very easy to clean

My tips would be :

1. Never overfill it - best to keep under the three- quarter mark of the beakers.
2. Screw the beakers into the bade base quite tightly as they can loosen during blending (and leak)
3. Never use it for more than 30 seconds at a time (as per instructions) - that is plenty anyway.
4. Rinse the blades straight away after blending
5. Keep the outer sealing ring in the blade base clean (it's like a white silicone sealing ring)
6. To blend you either push and hold the beaker down for a few seconds or you can push and twist clockwise to lock the beaker in the blend position and remove you hand while it blends. Be careful when untwisting (to stop the blending) that you don't lift the beaker at the same time before the blades have fully stopped. I've done this a few times initially and it can grates/grind the contact points between the bottom of the beaker unit and the main unit.
7. There are three white plastics slots on the base unit that push down when the beaker+blades is attached for blending. These can occasionally get sticky (from leaks) and stiff. Every now and again they need cleaning by dabbing / pushing with hot water and kitchen roll - MAKE SURE UNIT IS OFF AT THE MAINS WHEN DOING THIS !!
'nutrition extracting'

Eating a whole piece of food contains exactly the same nutrition as eating it blended.

Utter tosh.
"nutrition extracting blades" lol.
Will this blend ice cream and chocolate bars?
I have this model, its powerful, from a design point of view when the remove the cup from the unit it can slightly undo and leak. If this happens it leaks into the motor as there are gaps in the unit. Warranty would be voided if this caused the motor to fail.

I brought this from Wilko for £40 for xmas I am very impressed with it and it's used everyday ...
i know this is 1000w but if anyone is after something cheaper and dont mind a lower wattage lidl have one for £25 this week it's 700w so its higher than the nutrabullet but oviously less powerfull than this one
got my nutri ninja for £2 more and happy with that.

A great machine Got a silver one the other day in store From the Original Factory Shop for 39 quid in there sale.(out of stock online now though)
works excellent and cant fault.
Salter is a British brand that's been around for over 250 years (a proper well known brand) so much more of a feelgood factor for me.
how long have Nutri Ninja been making kitchen equipment I wonder, but that's not to say they don't do a decent job.
The best deal for a blender was advertised about a month ago on here. Tower VitaBlend Pro T12020r 1200w blender - £16.73 @ Homebase
Still available from Iceland but £39.99, 1200 watt and 30,000 rpm

You might wanty to read up on this. Fruit juices and smoothies have had the sugar mechanically beaten out of the pulp. Your body therefore absorbs the full sugar content. When eating whole fruits a large amount of the sugars comes out the other end, without being absorbed. Identical foods which are processed or cooked differently have different properties. Fruit is good, smoothies are bad (and fruit juice consumption linked to increased rates of diabetes, whilst fruit consumption reduced rates), Meanwhile, blending soups may actually slow absorption...
