- Cleaning - Cleaning the containers of the NutriBullet can prove to be difficult especially if you have worked with some sticky stuff with your recipes due to its cylindrical shape. Normal to large hand sizes do not fit
insidethe cups and you will need to buy a dish brush so that you can reach the inside of the container.
- Leaking - Some consumers have complained about the leaking of the liquid through the blades which can seep into the motor base. Some cases are caused by overfilling the jars above the fill line. This causes extra stress to the blades and causes them to loosen as time goes by.
- Motor Durability - The NutriBullet has a 900 watt motor that can blend vegetables and fruits very well. It is not advised to run for long periods and the motor should take frequent breaks to avoid overheating.
The price of the NutriBullet Pro 900 series is priced at $105.75 and is worth the purchase. At its price, you get the extra blade, containers, lids and manual which makes it a great deal Though its competition is priced lower, the additional items included in the package justifies its overall worth.
