The NutriBullet GO is a battery-powered personal blender meant for blending drinks like smoothies wherever you are, like after a workout or during your lunch break at work. It's a budget-friendly option, and its design is light and small enough to fit in most bags or backpacks. It comes with a small 13-ounce jar and a lid with a carrying strap. It's well-built, but none of its components are dishwasher-safe.
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 crushing ice or blending hot ingredients, but on the plus side, it has a good build quality.
The NutriBullet GO isn't bad for single-serve smoothies. It's a battery-powered blender meant for making drinks like smoothies on the go but doesn't perform as well as many plug-in blenders when blending fibrous ingredients like kale and fruit. Still, it's easy to use and has a light, compact design.
The NutriBullet GO isn't designed for making multiple servings of smoothies since its blending jar has a small 13-ounce capacity, so it can only blend one serving at a time. It also struggles to fully blend fibrous ingredients, so smoothies with kale or pineapple have unprocessed bits left over.
This blender isn't intended for crushing ice, according to the manufacturer.
You can't use the NutriBullet GO blender to blend hot ingredients, so it's not really suitable for soup. It has a small capacity and can't make a smooth blend with fibrous ingredients, so even if you're working with small batches of cool ingredients, it makes a grainy broccoli or kale soup.
The NutriBullet GO isn't intended for professional use. It's battery-powered, limiting how often you can use it, has a small capacity, and isn't very powerful. It's not bad at making smoothies with fibrous ingredients but doesn't completely process fibrous ingredients like kale.
This blender is available in a few different color variants: 'Black', 'Red', 'Silver', and 'Gray'. We tested the 'Black' variant, but our results will be valid for the other colors. 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, and we'll update our review.
The NutriBullet GO cordless blender is a portable, cordless personal blender. It's very small and light and makes a smoothie a little quicker than the BlendJet 2, a similar battery-powered blender. It's also very quiet. It comes with a 13-ounce jar that you can only fill to about 10 ounces, which some may find is on the small side for drinks.
The NutriBullet GO is a bit better than the BlendJet 2. Both models are battery-powered blenders that don't perform the best when blending fibrous ingredients, but the GO takes less time to blend a smoothie with kale or blueberries. On the other hand, the BlendJet is easier to clean by hand and comes in a huge variety of different colors and patterns.
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, meaning 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 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 Cuisinart EvolutionX Cordless Rechargeable Personal Blender is better than the NutriBullet GO. The Cuisinart has a better blending performance since it makes a smoother blend with fibrous ingredients. It can handle crushing ice and making nut butter, although it's not easy or fun to use for that purpose. However, the NutriBullet is smaller, lighter, and quieter, so you may prefer if you want both the jar and the motor base to be very portable.
The NutriBullet GO is a battery-powered personal blender, and the NutriBullet Pro 900 is a conventional plug-in blender. The Pro 900 is more powerful and versatile since it can easily handle tough tasks like making nut butter and makes a silkier smoothie with fruit or greens. On the other hand, the GO is meant to be portable. It's small and light, and you can use it to make a fairly well-blended smoothie during your lunch break or when you're traveling.
The NutriBullet GO is better than the Xibonol Portable Blender. It's sturdier and blends ingredients more quickly. It can also make a smoother blend with fibrous ingredients like kale and fruit, which is important for well-blended smoothies. It's marginally quieter. However, it has a smaller 13oz capacity than the Xibonol's 16oz capacity. The Xibonol is also easier to clean by hand.
It's a small battery-powered blender. It's a little bit smaller and lighter than the BlendJet 2. It can fit into a purse or a bag, and you can easily store it on your kitchen counter or in a drawer.
It has a good build quality. The plastic it's made 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, ensuring the blender can't start unless the jar is screwed into place. However, the cover for the USB charging port feels flimsy and as if it could tear after a while.
The jar has an overall capacity of 13oz but a 'Max Fill' indication at 10 ounces. It's very small, even compared to other small portable personal blenders like the Fresh Juice Portable Blender, which has a 13oz blending capacity.
The jar and lid are made of plastic and aren't dishwasher-safe.
This blender has four blades. You can't remove them from the motor base, and they must be hand-washed.
This blender comes with a screw-on lid for its jar. There's a built-in nylon carrying strap. It doesn't have a drinking spout or come with a straw, unlike the Xibonol Portable Blender.
It comes with a USB-C to USB-A charging cable. According to the manufacturer, it takes less than three hours to fully charge. A full charge provides up to 20 blending cycles that last for 30 seconds each. You can't use the blender while it's charging, unlike the PopBabies Portable Blender.
It's not bad for small batches of fibrous ingredients. Each blending cycle lasts for 30 seconds, and you need to run multiple cycles for the best results, but it doesn't overheat as quickly as the BlendJet 2 if you don't rest between cycles. For the best results, it's a good idea to shake the blender once or twice to encourage the unprocessed pieces toward the blades. However, even if you blend for several minutes, the result is a grainy, non-uniform puree with some stringy pieces of kale left over.
Since it has such a small 13-ounce capacity, you'll probably fill it to make a single-serve smoothie, so the result is the same.
This blender isn't intended for crushing ice without liquid in the jar, according to the manual.
It's not good for making nut butter. It can grind nuts into a paste after about five minutes of blending, and if you frequently and vigorously shake the jar. However, the final result is dry, grainy, and not very spreadable.
Like most battery-powered blenders, it's very quiet compared to most conventional personal blenders, even relatively quiet ones like the Magic Bullet Mini.
Like most personal blenders, it has only one speed setting, so you can't fine-tune the speed for certain recipes.
Double-pressing the button on the motor base starts a 30-second blending cycle. Unlike the BlendJet 2, it doesn't have a pulse mode, and it's a bit harder to manually pulse than with most blenders since you need to double-press to turn it on or off. The manufacturer says not to run more than two blending cycles in a row without letting the motor rest in between.
This blender is decently easy to clean. Running it with soap and water in the jar takes care of most residue, but you still need to use a brush to scrub around the blades and the inside of the jar. The jar is small and narrow, so you may need a brush with a handle if you can't reach the bottom by hand.
