The Magic Bullet Kitchen Express is a combo personal blender and small food processor. It comes with a pair of 15-ounce jars meant for drinks like smoothies, as well as a food processing bowl with its own chopping blade assembly. There's one to-go lid included, meaning you can bring a smoothie on the go, and all of its components are dishwasher-safe.
The Magic Bullet Kitchen Express is disappointing for multi-purpose use. It's not very well-built and, as a personal blender, has a limited capacity and can't hot blend. It's also not intended for ice crushing. It can puree fibrous fruits and vegetables and process hard ingredients like nuts. There's a bowl and blade included for food processing chores like slicing onions.
The Magic Bullet Kitchen Express is good for making single-serve smoothies. It comes with a pair of 15-ounce jars meant for making personal drinks like smoothies and protein shakes. It easily processes fibrous ingredients, so your drink will be free of leafy bits of kale and specks of fruit skin. However, it's not very well-built and only comes with one to-go lid.
The Magic Bullet Kitchen Express is a single-serve bullet blender, so it's not the best choice if you're looking to serve up more than one smoothie at a time. With one of its 15-ounce jars filled to full capacity, it doesn't take very long to make a very smooth blend with common smoothie ingredients like kale and blueberries.
The Magic Bullet Kitchen Express isn't intended for crushing ice without liquid in the jar, according to the manual.
The Magic Bullet Kitchen Express can't hot blend, so it isn't suitable for making soups. It has a small capacity but can smoothly blend room-temperature fibrous ingredients like kale and broccoli.
The Magic Bullet Kitchen Express is poor for professional use. It's not very well-built, which is a particular concern if you need your blender often. It's also not very versatile since it can't hot blend like most personal blenders and isn't intended for ice crushing without liquid in the jar. It can blend up a silky smoothie with stubborn ingredients like leafy greens, and it performs well for making small batches of nut butter or hummus.
The Magic Bullet Kitchen Express comes in Silver, and you can see the label for the model we tested here. There's also the Magic Bullet Kitchen Prep, which has a similarly-designed motor base. However, it only includes the food processor jar (and related accessories), but not the blending blades or jars, so our results aren't valid for that model.
If you come across another variant of this blender, let us know in the discussions, and we'll update our review.
The Magic Bullet Kitchen Express is a personal blender with a food processing bowl and blade assembly. While it doesn't have a premium build quality, it can smoothly blend fibrous ingredients, which is important for silky smoothies, and help with small recipes of thicker blends like nut butter. Unlike many bullet-style blenders, it has a control dial with a dedicated pulse mode, and you don't need to hold down the jar to blend.
If you're looking for other blenders, check out our recommendations for the best blenders, the best blenders for smoothies, and the best NutriBullet and Magic Bullet blenders.
The Ninja Nutri Ninja Pro is a more versatile personal blender than the Magic Bullet Kitchen Express. The Ninja is better built and easier to clean. It can crush ice, unlike the Magic Bullet. While the Ninja comes with an additional 12-oz jar, the Magic Bullet comes with a food processing attachment. The Magic Bullet also makes a better-blended smoothie.
The Ninja Foodi Power Nutri DUO is better than the Magic Bullet Kitchen Express. The Ninja is better built and more versatile since you can use it to crush ice. It's also easier to use for tougher blends like nut butter. The jars and blades are easier to clean by hand. However, the Magic Bullet is much quieter, and it's a blender/food processor combo, so it comes with a bowl and blades for slicing and chopping.
The Magic Bullet Kitchen Express and the Magic Bullet Blender MBR-1101 perform similarly but come with different jars and accessories. The Kitchen Express includes a food processing bowl, along with personal jars for single-serve smoothies. On the other hand, the MBR-1101 doesn't come with any food processing accessories, but it includes a 4-ounce cup for blending small amounts of ingredients, along with a pair of personal jars for smoothies.
The Magic Bullet Kitchen Express is better than the Oster MyBlend. The Magic Bullet makes a silkier smoothie with ingredients like kale and comes with a pair of jars for single-serves. It also includes extra attachments, including a food processing bowl and extra blades for slicing and chopping.
The Magic Bullet Kitchen Express and the BlendJet 2 have different strengths, and you may prefer either one, depending on your needs. The BlendJet is a more portable battery-powered blender. It has a much better build quality, and its lid has a built-in carrying strap. You can use it to crush ice, and it’s much easier to clean by hand. On the other hand, the Magic Bullet can make a silkier smoothie with ingredients like kale. It comes with a greater number of jars as well as a food processing attachment.
The ZWILLING ENFINIGY Personal Blender is better than the Magic Bullet Essential. Both are meant for making smoothies, and the Magic Bullet makes a smoother blend with common ingredients like kale and blueberries. However, it's not a huge difference, and the ZWILLING blender has a few other benefits that make it better overall. It's much sturdier and comes with a resealable lid for its jar. It's also more versatile since it's much more suitable for small batches of nut butter and hummus.
The Magic Bullet Kitchen Express is a more versatile personal blender than the Magic Βullet Mini. The Kitchen Express comes with two jars for smoothies as well as a food processing bowl for tasks like slicing vegetables. It's better built and has a much better performance when processing tough, thick mixtures like nut butter.
The Ninja Nutri Ninja Auto-iQ is a more versatile personal blender than the Magic Bullet Kitchen Express. The Ninja is better built, and it comes with more speed options and a timer. It's easier to clean and can crush ice, unlike the Magic Bullet. That said, the Magic Bullet comes with a food processing attachment, and it makes a better smoothie.
The NutriBullet Pro 900 is a better personal blender than the Magic Bullet Kitchen Express. The NutriBullet is better built and comes with to-go lids for both jars. It's a better choice for single-serve smoothies since it makes a smoother puree with fibrous ingredients like kale. However, the Magic Bullet is a blender/food processor combo, so it comes with a separate bowl and blade for slicing and chopping.
It has an okay build quality. The body is mostly made of plastic and sits on four pegs with suction cups to help it stay in place. The jars are made of plastic. Unlike the BELLA Rocket Blender and the Magic Bullet Mini, it has a dedicated pulse button. Unfortunately, the motor fan is visible via a plastic vent under the blender.
The jars each have a 15-ounce capacity, which is a good size for single-serve smoothies.
It's fantastic for small batches of fibrous ingredients. It takes around thre minutes of blending to make a very smooth puree with ingredients like kale. Unlike blenders like the NutriBullet Pro 900, there may be some tiny grains left over.
It's excellent for making nut butter. Pulse mode helps break up the nuts at the beginning of the process. However, the manufacturer says not to run the blender for longer than one minute continuously without allowing it to rest. You need to shake the jar during these breaks to keep the ingredients moving. The final result is flawless nut butter, but it could be a quicker process, and the motor base heats up a bit by the end.
It's quiet for a blender. It makes less noise when running than other personal models like the Magic Bullet Blender MBR-1101, which is nice if you like to blend a smoothie in the morning without waking up your housemates.
There's only one speed preset, like most personal blenders, so you can't fine-tune the speed to suit your recipe.
It has a small dial on its motor base that you can set to 'on', 'off', or 'pulse'. When using pulse mode, you need to turn the dial to the right and hold it to pulse continuously since it will automatically turn back to 'off' when you let it go. There's no need to keep hold of the dial when you're using the regular blending mode, though (with the dial turned to 'on').
