Pros: Easy to Use,
Easy to clean,
Can make "personalized" smoothies,
The magic bullet is one of 20+ expensive food processing gadgets I have purchased over the last 15 to 20 years. I have a terrible sweet tooth, and as a mother of two children I really want to teach them healthy eating habits - in spite of my horrible ones. To make matters worse, I am a terrible cook, and would rather do about anything but cook or make food. The only thing I like to do less, is clean all the dishes and processors used when cooking!
The magic bullet is the ONLY one of my many gadgets I actually use, and I use it multiple times per day! I can't control what my children are eating at school or when they are out with friends, but if I can give them one healthy smoothie per day I feel better about their eating. And the magic bullet can provide my kids much more than some fruit and vegetables... I can hide all types of nutrients in a smoothie, and mix it with their favorite fruit and they love it! I add grains, proteins, probiotics, vitamins, greens, etc! This works not only for my children, but for me as well! And that is a big thing. I not only have more energy and feel better, but I lost over 10 pounds in the first couple months I had the magic bullet And have kept it off for 2 years!
And because it is so easy to use, and so easy to clean (the smoothies are mixed right in the cup you are serving it in), I am motivated to use it every day. My children can use it as well!
The he product comes with a variety of different sized cups (some even have handles), two different blades for different blending (which screw right on top of the cups, which you simply turn over and put on the powered unit to blend), and a corded power unit to place the blending cups on. Also included are screw on "lids" that cover the screw top so the top is smooth and your mouth doesn't need to go over the rough plastic. And each of the lids are different colors so everyone knows which is their cup! Which is important, since every cup can be personalized with that person's favorite ingredients (can't do that with a regular blender).
So, if you are interested in making healthy smoothies, or adding healthy nutrients into you and your family's diet, I highly recommend the magic bullet.
