The NutriBullet GO is a battery-powered personal blender intended to be used on-the-go, like after a gym workout or during your lunch break at work. It's very light, quiet, and small enough to fit in most bags or backpacks. Unfortunately, it makes disappointing smoothies, and while it comes with a 13-ounce jar, it's only supposed to be filled to 10 ounces, which some may find limiting. This blender also really struggles to process almonds and isn't intended for ice crushing or hot blending. On the plus side, it has a good build quality and is available in a few different colors.
The NutriBullet GO is bad for multi-purpose use. It makes a disappointing, leafy smoothie and can't crush almonds into a smooth, spreadable butter. It's also not intended for ice crushing or blending hot ingredients, but on the plus side, it has a good build quality.
The NutriBullet GO isn't intended for crushing ice, according to the manufacturer.
The NutriBullet GO can't be used to blend hot ingredients.
The NutriBullet GO is a bad choice for professional use. It has a good build quality but can't make crushed ice or smooth almond butter, and its jar has a very small capacity. It also makes disappointing, leafy smoothies, but on the plus side, it's usually quite easy to clean.
The NutriBullet GO blender is available in a few different color variants: 'Black', 'Red', 'Silver', and 'Gray'. We tested the 'Black' variant but expect our results to be valid for the other colors too. You can see the label for the unit we tested here. If you come across another variant or your blender is different, please let us know in the discussions below so that we can update our review.
The NutriBullet GO is a portable, cordless personal blender. It's very small and light, but performs poorly for most uses and makes a disappointing smoothie. It's not as versatile as the battery-powered BlendJet 2, which makes better-textured smoothies and can crush ice. Also, like the Magic Bullet Mini, the NutriBullet GO comes with a 13-ounce jar that can only be filled to about 10 ounces, which some may find is on the small side for drinks. If you want to see other blender options, take a look at our lists of the best personal blenders, the best blenders for smoothies, and the best mini blenders.
The BlendJet 2 is a little better than the NutriBullet GO. Βoth are battery-powered blenders meant to be portable, but the BlendJet has a slightly larger capacity and is able to crush ice. It has a dedicated pulse mode and it's easier to clean by hand. That said, making a smoothie with the BlendJet is a more hands-on process because you need to shake the jar between each 20-second blending cycle.
The NutriBullet Pro 900 is a better blender for most uses than the NutriBullet GO. The Pro makes decent almond butter and incredible, silky smoothies. Its jar also has a much larger capacity of 32 ounces. However, the GO is a very small, portable, battery-powered blender, and it also feels more sturdy.
The Magic Bullet Mini is a better blender than the NutriBullet GO for most purposes. It makes a smoother blend with fibrous ingredients like kale, so it can produce silkier smoothies. It's also more capable of processing hard ingredients like nuts. On the other hand, the NutriBullet is a battery-powered blender, so you may prefer it if you're looking for something portable.
The Ninja Nutri Ninja Pro is better for most purposes than the NutriBullet GO. The Ninja can crush ice and comes with three differently-sized jars with to-go lids. It’s also much better at making smoothies and almond butter. It’s easier to clean when you’re working with sticky ingredients, and its blade assemblies, jars, and lids dishwasher-safe. However, the NutriBullet is a more compact blender with a much better build quality.
The PopBabies Portable Blender is better than the NutriBullet GO for most purposes. It makes much better almond butter and smoothies and can crush mini ice cubes, while the NutriΒullet shouldn't be used to make crushed ice at all, according to the manufacturer. It's also dishwasher-safe. On the other hand, the NutriΒullet has removable blades, making it easier to clean by hand.
The BELLA Rocket Blender is a somewhat better blender than the NutriBullet GO. Neither blender can crush ice or make almond butter, and both have a small capacity, but the BELLA produces a much better smoothie. It also comes with two additional jars. However, the NutriBullet is a very lightweight, battery-powered blender, so you may prefer it if you're looking for something portable. It also has a better build quality.
The Nutribullet GO is a very compact personal blender. It's intended to be portable and is much smaller than the NutriBullet Pro. It can fit into a purse or a bag, and you can also easily store it on your kitchen counter or in a drawer.
The NutriBullet GO has a good build quality. The plastic it's made out of doesn't look very premium, but it has anti-slip pads under its motor base and the blades feel sturdily attached. The rim of the base has a safety feature built-in which ensures the blender can't start unless the jar is screwed into place. However, the cover to the USB charging port feels flimsy and as if it could tear after a while.
This blender has four blades, two horizontal ones and two that point slightly upwards. They can't be removed from the motor base and should be hand-washed.
This blender comes with a screw-on lid for its jar that has a built-in nylon carrying strap.
This blender is battery-operated. It comes with a USB-C to USB-A charging cable. According to the manufacturer, it takes less than three hours to fully charge and provides up to 20 30-second blending cycles before the battery dies, but we don't currently test this. The blender can't be used while it's charging.
Update 02/22/2022: The blender's almond butter performance has been retested using one cup of almonds instead of two. The results have been updated, and the score changed from 0 to 5.0.
This blender is poor for making almond butter. If you add one cup of ingredients at once, it can process almonds into a paste. Unfortunately, the end result is a dry, sand-like butter that's difficult to spread. The blender's motor can start to overheat after about seven minutes of blending as well. Also, if you use two cups of almonds, which is the usual recipe for the almond butter test, the blades tend to jam up, and the blender fails to produce almond butter.
This blender has one speed setting. It's quiet and about as fast as the BlendJet 2. Push the power button twice to start a blending cycle, which lasts for 30 seconds before the blender automatically shuts off. You can simulate a pulse mode by pressing the power button twice to start it and then once to turn it off again, but you need to do it repeatedly.
Note: According to the manufacturer, you shouldn't run more than two consecutive blending cycles without letting the blender rest in between.
This blender is decently easy to clean. You can't put any part in the dishwasher, but if you've been working with liquidy ingredients like for a smoothie, the blades and jar are pretty easy to clean after giving them a quick rinse in water. It's a bit more difficult with sticky ingredients, as you may need to use a sponge or a brush to clean around the blade assembly and gasket. Because the blades are attached to the motor base, they can't be submerged in water.
