The NutriBullet PRO 1000 is a straightforward personal blender that comes with only one speed setting. Its 32-ounce and 24-ounce jars are ideal for making small servings, and the blender comes with two to-go lids so you can bring your smoothies on the go. On the downside, this blender struggles to fully blend leafy greens like kale, and it isn't ideal for making almond butter. That said, the lid and the blades are easy to clean by hand, and the jars are top-rack dishwasher-safe for a quick clean-up.

Our Verdict

5.8 Multi-Purpose

The NutriBullet PRO 1000 is sub-par for multi-purpose use. It has a good build quality, and the jars can be washed in the top rack of your dishwasher for an easy clean-up. It does a good job making smoothies and crushing ice, but it can push ingredients to the side of the jar, resulting in a not fully-blended final product. Sometimes, you have to shake the jar to get ingredients closer to the blades. It also isn't ideal for making almond butter, as it doesn't fully crush the almonds.

Pros
  • Easy to clean.
  • Good build quality.
Cons
  • Can't hot blend.
  • Only one speed.
  • Ingredients can get pushed to the side of the jar.
7.5 Smoothies/Protein Shakes

The NutriBullet PRO 1000 is good for smoothies and protein shakes. It creates a thick, foamy smoothie in around three minutes, but it struggles to blend leafy greens like kale. It's easy to clean and has a good build quality. On the downside, it doesn't feel as durable or premium as some of the other blenders we've tested.

Pros
  • Easy to clean.
  • Good build quality.
  • Creates a well-blended smoothie.
Cons
  • Ingredients can get pushed to the side of the jar.
6.6 Ice Crushing

The NutriBullet PRO 1000 is adequate for crushing ice. It makes bar-quality crushed ice in around six minutes, but you can only put in a few ice cubes at a time, or else they don't get fully blended. You also may have to shake the blender to get all the ice cubes incorporated into the vortex.

Pros
  • Good build quality.
Cons
  • Ingredients can get pushed to the side of the jar.
6.3 Soups

The NutriBullet PRO 1000 can't hot blend, so it isn't suitable for making soups.

6.3 Professional Use

The NutriBullet PRO 1000 is mediocre for professional use. It's intended for personal use, and its small-capacity jars aren't ideal for making large batches. It struggles to make almond butter, and you may need to shake it to get ingredients fully blended. On the upside, it's easy to clean.

Pros
  • Easy to clean.
  • Good build quality.
Cons
  • Can't hot blend.
  • Small capacity jars.
  • 5.8 Multi-Purpose
  • 7.5 Smoothies/Protein Shakes
  • 6.6 Ice Crushing
  • 6.3 Soups
  • 6.3 Professional Use

Design
Build Quality

The NutriBullet PRO 1000 has a decent build quality. This blender is mostly made of metal and plastic, which feels sturdy and solid. The jars feel durable, too. However, the lids are made of a brittle-feeling plastic, so they seem like they could break easily if dropped, and the aluminum-looking finish on the base feels a bit cheap. It also seems like there could be a lot of wear on the transmission.

Screw-On

The blades are attached to the lid, which screws on the jar for a tight seal. The lid isn't dishwasher-safe, and the dishwasher could damage the gasket, so it needs to be hand-washed. This blender also comes with two to-go lids, which get their seal using friction.

The NutriBullet PRO 1000 comes with a cord that's long enough to reach most outlets. There isn't a stowaway compartment to hide the cord when it's not in use, which is a little inconvenient.

The NutriBullet PRO 1000 is poor for making almond butter. After five minutes, it makes a dry, dusty butter that's very difficult to spread. It also leaves behind chunks of almond that aren't fully blended. The blender also overheated while attempting to make almond butter during our test. If you're looking for a personal blender that can make a smooth, spreadable almond butter, check out the NutriBullet Pro+.

The NutriBullet PRO 1000 is good at crushing ice. It makes bar-quality ice. However, you may need to put in only a few ice cubes at a time to make sure everything gets blended. Also, you may need to stop and shake the jar to get the cubes blended properly. If you're looking for a personal blender that does a better job of crushing ice in less time, check out the Ninja Nutri Ninja Auto-iQ.

Almond Butter Cleaning
Simple

The NutriBullet PRO 1000 is very easy to clean. Liquid messes like smoothies can be easily cleaned by running the blender with soap and water. For stickier messes like almond butter, you may need to use a brush to clean the grooves and the screw-on lid, but the butter comes off easily. The jar is also top-rack dishwasher-safe, but you can't put the lid in the dishwasher.

Compared To Other Blenders

The NutriBullet PRO 1000 is a straightforward personal blender that comes with a 32-ounce and a 24-ounce main jar. It only has one speed setting, and it doesn't have a lot of extra features or settings. It makes a good smoothie, but it struggles to fully crush nuts and creates a dry, powdery almond butter.

NutriBullet Pro

The NutriBullet Pro is a better personal blender for making smoothies than the NutriBullet PRO 1000, as it does a better job incorporating leafy greens like kale into the blend. It also makes a smoother, spreadable almond butter than the 1000. However, the 1000 can crush ice, and it's also easier to clean.

Ninja Nutri Ninja Auto-iQ

The NutriBullet PRO 1000 is a better personal blender for making smoothies than the Ninja Nutri Ninja Auto-iQ. The NutriBullet produces a better overall smoothie and it comes with larger main and additional jars for you to take your blends with you on-the-go. The NutriBullet also feels better-built. However, the Ninja is a bit more versatile, can make bar-quality ice in around two minutes, and can produce a crunchy, spreadable almond butter. The Ninja's blades are dishwasher-safe and it has a control panel that allows you to pulse blend or set a timer.

NutriBullet Blender Combo

The NutriBullet Blender Combo and the NutriBullet PRO 1000 aren't the most versatile blenders, so depending on your use, you may prefer one over the other. The Blender Combo is a full-size blender that comes with a 32-oz additional jar, while the PRO 1000 is a personal blender with a 32-oz main jar and a 24-oz additional jar. The Blender Combo can hot blend, so it's better for making soups and sauces, and it comes with different speed settings and a pulse mode. However, unlike the PRO 1000, it can't crush ice.

NutriBullet Pro+

The NutriBullet PRO 1000 is a more versatile personal blender than the NutriBullet Pro+, as it can crush ice, unlike the Pro+. However, the Pro+ makes a smooth, spreadable almond butter, and it also makes a better-blended smoothie.

Breville Boss To Go Sport

The Breville Boss To Go Sport is a better overall personal blender than the NutriBullet PRO 1000. The Breville has a better build quality. While the NutriBullet struggles to make almond butter, the Breville produces a sticky, spreadable butter. It also does a better job incorporating fibrous greens like kale into the mix, making it a better option for smoothies. While the Breville's parts are entirely dishwasher-safe, unlike the NutriBullet, the NutriBullet is easier to hand wash after making stickier messes like nut butter.

BELLA Rocket Blender

The NutriBullet PRO 1000 is a significantly better blender for making smoothies than the BELLA Rocket Blender. Although the NutriBullet takes a little longer to make a smoothie, its texture is less grainy. It can also make bar-quality ice. It has a better build quality and it's easier to clean, too. However, the BELLA comes with two personal jars as well as a flat blade assembly for its small grinding cup.

Magic Bullet Mini

The NutriBullet PRO 1000 is a better blender than the Magic Bullet. The NutriBullet feels slightly better-built and is more powerful. It can crush ice, which the Magic Bullet can't do, and is much easier to clean. On the other hand, the Magic Bullet does a slightly better job at processing nuts to make nut butter, but the result is still quite disappointing. On the bright side, it has a very easy to use pulse function.

Ninja DUO

The Ninja DUO is a better overall blender than the NutriBullet PRO 1000. The Ninja is a full-size blender that comes with a 20-oz personal jar, so it's a better choice for larger batches. It's better-built, and it comes with more features, including preset modes, a pulse mode, a timer, and a juicer attachment. The Ninja can make smooth, spreadable almond butter and a more drinkable smoothie, and it crushes ice in less time. That said, the personal-size NutriBullet is easier to hand wash.
