My new Magic Bullet

My old blender finally died on me and I was looking to replace it. I don't have the funds for an expensive blender and I happened to see this while I was out looking around. It's called a Magic Bullet and it was part of a 21 piece set for only $40.00 USD. After reading the box, and texting a friend, I decided to give it a try.

This thing is powerful, it even made quick work of several large ice cubes without skipping a beat! I'm quite happy with it thus far and look forward to seeing what I can do with it. It even included a recipe book :)

I've heard good things about the Magic Bullet. Enjoy!

I have too Dawg. An like he stated, it was not expensive and came with parts. Sounds like he got himself a dang good deal.



Good luck with your new toy. Happy cooking with it.

Thank you both. Yes, it was a good deal and I couldn't pass it up :)

I have one and it is very handy. I use it, among other things, to grind spices. Just be forewarned, it will dull the container, so I always use the same one. It's cool that it has multiple containers. You can use it to grind coffee, but I prefer a burr grinder for coffee.

Ah, thank you for the warning. I haven't tried grinding spices or coffee yet but I'll be sure to set one container aside for that purpose if I do. This set is the Black Edition and came with 6 containers, several lids, 2 blades and 2 straws.

This thing makes my protein-berry smoothies in seconds versus cutting, chopping and mixing everything by hand. I'm loving it!

Since-moved neighbors up the street had one. Gave it a TON of work whirring up drinks at every neighborhood gathering. Our block used to have a LOT of parties! Still worked when they moved. Yours should serve you well.

I've heard they work well, but have too many gadgets and much less counter space since we moved. Maybe if the blender breaks.

I wish my blender would break! I think it was a wedding present 31 years ago! I'd love to have an updated one. Same with my food processor - it's 26 years old.
