What’s lacks in finesse, the Nutribullet Magic Bullet Mini Juicer makes up for with pace, producing excessive volumes of drink quick. It’s versatile, too, taking all types of chopped vegetables and fruit. I discovered the ultimate juice a bit frothy, however should you solely make the occasional drink, this compact and well-priced juicer is an effective alternative.
KindThis can be a quick juicer that makes use of blades to chop fruit.
Nutribullet has turn into an enormous identify on this planet of blenders however the model additionally sells a variety of juicers. Inside this vary are three juicers: the Bullet Professional, the usual Bullet Juicer and, and on the decrease, entry-level finish, the Magic Bullet Mini Juicer that I’ve on assessment right here.
This Mini model makes use of centrifugal power and small blades to extract juice from fruit and veg, and filters all of the waste right into a removable pulp bin.
It’s compact, which means it is going to match comfortably on most kitchen tops or in cabinets, and it guarantees to supply all the advantages of its bigger juicers in a a lot smaller kind.
Design and options
- Compact design packs in quite a lot of tech
- Straightforward to make use of
- Very loud
As its identify suggests, the Nutribullet Magic Bullet Mini Juicer is compact and moveable, measuring 31cm tall, 20cm broad and weighing 3kg. Its base, the place the 200W motor is saved, takes up the vast majority of this complete measurement. On the entrance of the bottom is a straightforward on/off swap. A plastic juice bowl fitted with a removable metal sieve and small blade system sits on high of this base.
On the left of the bowl is a spout that comes with a silicone, anti-drip cap, and on the correct is a chute, and removable pulp bin, the place the Bullet Mini funnels the waste.
A tube then runs via the center of the bowl. That is the place you place the fruit and greens, and the place you employ the plastic plunger to push the meals in the direction of the spinning blades.
Organising the Bullet Mini is a bit fiddly, however intuitive. The sieve slots out and in of the juice bowl simply. You must connect the pulp bin – which takes a small quantity of manoeuvring to suit into place – earlier than attaching the lid. And to stop the lid from flying off, you then should lock it in place with two hinged arms on the facet of the juicer. There are small suction pads on the underside of the bottom to maintain the juicer in place.
When you flick the swap on the bottom, the blades and sieve spin and, as you push the fruit and veg onto the blades, the juice flows via the spout, whereas the pulp is flung in the direction of the bin. I take advantage of the phrase flung as a result of the juicer strikes with such power, it sends juice and pulp flying in all instructions. Fortunately all of it stays within the bowl – and that is the place the suction pads come into their very own – but it surely’s fairly intense. As is the juicer’s quantity. It’s so loud, it’s not doable to simply have a dialog whereas it’s operating and my four-year-old coated his ears in concern each time I used it with him within the room.
As a result of its compact measurement, the meals tube is so slender that you would be able to solely put small quantities of fruit and veg in at a time, and it’s important to minimize your fruit into small chunks to ensure that them to suit. You can also’t simply match a glass beneath the spout. Nutribullet does embody a 16oz juice cup and lid within the field, as customary, so this can be a barely moot level. Plus, this cup holds much more juice than a glass would so it’s an effective way to make and retailer batches of juice.
Cleansing the juicer after use is a bit more difficult than different juicers I’ve tried. It comes aside simply and the primary elements are easy to rinse and wash. Nevertheless, the sieve and blades are usually not. The holes are so small within the sieve that pulp clings to it and it isn’t straightforward to rinse this away. Equally, the blades are so sharp that they minimize up any sponge or cleansing material should you attempt to scrub any pulp or fruit away.
The Magic Bullet Mini does include a cleansing brush, however in my expertise, this doesn’t go far sufficient. On the plus facet, all the elements are dishwasher-safe.
- Makes giant quantities of juice in seconds
- Successfully filters out the pulp, pores and skin and pips
- Creates rather a lot foam which dulls the style
One overriding constructive that comes from the actual fact the Bullet Mini is so quick and loud is that it creates juice in seconds. The additional time it takes to cut your fruit and veg into small items is counteracted by the actual fact the Bullet Mini juices them shortly and successfully.
From a single lemon, and orange I managed to fill the juice cup up by round a 3rd. After I added a few pineapple slices to the combo it crammed greater than half. The additional power additionally meant that almost all of waste ended up within the pulp bin and never caught to the within of the juice bowl, or to any of the internal elements.
The draw back is that the power, and the quick nature of the juicing, generates quite a lot of foam and froth – probably the most of any juicer I’ve used. A lot so, that I needed to pressure each batch of juice I made earlier than serving it to my youngsters as a result of they refused to drink it with the froth on high. This additionally impacts the style. Within the technique of testing one of the best juicers, I usually have a couple of operating on the similar time with a view to evaluate how the juice from the identical fruit tastes from totally different juicers. To do that, I minimize an orange in half and put one in a single juicer, and the opposite half within the different. I additionally strive to verify the 2 juicers are comparable in value and use comparable expertise.
Whether or not it was the rate at which the juice was extracted, or the froth, however the juice from the Bullet Mini was noticeably much less flavoursome. It nonetheless tasted recent and clear, but it surely didn’t pack fairly the identical punch, as you get from gradual juicers, similar to the wonderful Sana 868 Huge Mouth Vertical Juicer.
