Professional Use

The NutriBullet Pro 1000 is a straightforward personal blender. It has one speed setting, and you simply dock the jar and twist it to blend. It has to-go lids for its jars and is well-suited for blending single-serve smoothies. However, it's not ideal for anything that requires more than a couple minutes of blending because the motor body can overheat.

Our Verdict

5.5 Multi-Purpose

The NutriBullet Pro 1000 is disappointing for multi-purpose use. It's great for single-serve smoothies, which is its intended purpose. However, it struggles with tough tasks like making nut butter and takes a while to process bigger batches of ingredients. It's also a bit of a pain to clean if you're working with fibrous ingredients.

Pros
  • Quiet.
  • Makes a mostly smooth blend with fibrous ingredients.
Cons
  • Motor can overheat.
8.0 Smoothies (Single Serving)

The NutriBullet Pro 1000 is great for single-serve smoothies. It comes with personal jars that are a good size for single-serves and efficiently blends fibrous ingredients, which is important for well-blended smoothies. However, similar blenders like the NutriBullet 900 make an even smoother blend with leafy greens or blueberries, and it's not meant for crushing ice without liquid in the jar.

Pros
  • Quiet.
  • Makes a mostly smooth blend with fibrous ingredients.
  • Comes with to-go lids.
Cons
  • Not meant for ice crushing.
6.5 Smoothies (Multiple Servings)

The NutriBullet Pro 1000 is alright for multiple servings of smoothies. It takes much longer to process common smoothie additions like kale if you fill the jar to full capacity and running too many blending cycles in a row risks overheating the blender. However, it still makes a mostly smooth puree with fibrous ingredients. It's not very loud when it's running, and the jar is dishwasher-safe, although you should clean the blades by hand.

Pros
  • Quiet.
  • Makes a mostly smooth blend with fibrous ingredients.
Cons
  • Slow to blend bigger batches.
  • Not meant for ice crushing.
2.1 Ice Crushing

The NutriBullet Pro 1000 isn't meant for crushing ice without liquid in the jar, so it's not suitable for making ice to add to cocktails or blended drinks like slushies.

Pros
  • Quiet.
Cons
3.7 Soups

The NutriBullet Pro 1000 isn't safe to use for hot blending, like most bullet blenders. If you let the ingredients cool first, it can make a smooth blend with fibrous vegetables for something like pureed broccoli soup. However, it works best with smaller batches, which is less convenient if you want to make multiple servings.

Pros
  • Quiet.
  • Makes a mostly smooth blend with fibrous ingredients.
Cons
  • Can't hot blend.
  • Slow to blend bigger batches.
5.0 Professional Use

The NutriBullet Pro 1000 is poor for professional use. It doesn't have a particularly premium build quality, and it's not that versatile, even for a personal blender, since it's not meant for crushing ice without liquid in the jar. It's slow to blend bigger batches of ingredients and thicker recipes, and using it for too long without resting the motor can cause it to overheat. However, it's quiet when running and works very well for single-serve smoothies.

Pros
  • Quiet.
  • Makes a mostly smooth blend with fibrous ingredients.
Cons
  • Motor can overheat.
  • Slow to blend bigger batches.
  • Not meant for ice crushing.
  • 5.5 Multi-Purpose

Differences Between Sizes And Variants

This blender comes with either one 34oz jar or a 34oz and a 24oz jar. The unit we tested comes with both jars, but we expect our results to be valid for the other variant as well.

If you come across another variant, let us know in the discussions, and we'll update our review.

Compared To Other Blenders

The NutriBullet PRO 1000 is a straightforward bullet blender that comes with one or two personal jars for smoothies. It's well-suited for single-serve smoothies but doesn't quite match the performance of more expensive options from the same brand, like the NutriBullet Pro 900. Similarly-priced personal blenders from other brands like the Ninja Fit and Ninja Nutri-Blender Plus are more versatile since they can crush ice and make nut butter with less effort, but the Pro 1000 is much quieter.

To see more options, check out our lists of the best bullet blenders, the best personal blenders, and the best NutriBullet and Magic Bullet blenders.

NutriBullet Pro 900

The NutriBullet Pro 900 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 nut butter than the 1000. However, the 1000 can crush ice, and it's easier to clean.

NutriBullet Pro+

The NutriBullet Pro+ is better than the NutriBullet Pro 1000. The two blenders are very similar, but the Pro+ takes less time to blend fibrous ingredients like kale and does a much better job with thicker mixtures like nut butter or hummus. It comes with cup rings as well as to-go lids for its jar.

Ninja Nutri Ninja Pro

The NutriBullet Pro 1000 is better than the Ninja Nutri Ninja Pro for most purposes. The NutriBullet is quieter and blends common smoothie ingredients like kale more quickly. Its jars have bigger capacities. However, the Ninja can crush ice without liquid in the jar, so you might prefer it if you want to make crushed ice for cocktails. All of its components are dishwasher-safe and it's easier to clean by hand. 

Ninja Nutri Ninja Auto-iQ

For most purposes, the Ninja Nutri Ninja Auto-iQ is better than the NutriBullet Pro 1000. The Ninja is more versatile since it can crush ice without liquid in the jar and easily handle tough tasks like nut butter. It's also easier to clean by hand, and all its parts are dishwasher-safe. On the other hand, the NutriBullet is significantly quieter and comes with bigger-capacity jars.

Magic Bullet Mini

The NutriBullet PRO 1000 is a better blender than the Magic Bullet Mini. The NutriBullet has a better build quality and bigger jars. It also delivers a somewhat better performance when it comes to making nut butter and processing fibrous ingredients. It's also quieter and easier to clean by hand. 

Ninja Foodi Power Nutri DUO

The Ninja Foodi Power Nutri DUO is better than the NutriBullet PRO 1000. The Ninja has a much better build quality and comes with a greater number of jars. It's much better at processing fibrous ingredients, making nut butter, and crushing ice.  it's also easier to clean by hand. It makes crushed ice with a better texture.

Ninja Fit

The Ninja Fit is better than the NutriΒullet PRO 1000 for most purposes. The Ninja makes slightly silkier blends with ingredients like kale, can crush ice, and does a better job with tough ingredients like nuts. On the other hand, the NutriBullet comes with bigger 32-ounce jars that are better for crushing ice. It's also easier to clean by hand.

BlendJet 2

The NutriBullet PRO 1000 is better than the BlendJet 2 for most purposes. The NutriBullet makes a silkier puree of fibrous ingredients, which is nice if your smoothie recipe includes ingredients like kale. It's also easier to clean by hand and comes with two personal jars with to-go lids. On the other hand, the BlendJet is battery-powered, so it's much more portable.

Magic Bullet Blender MBR-1101

The NutriBullet PRO 1000 is better for single-serve smoothies than the Magic Bullet Blender MBR-1101. The NutriBullet has a better build quality and comes with resealable lids for both of its jars. It's also quieter and easier to clean by hand. On the other hand, the Magic Bullet is easier to use to make nut butter. It's also very well-suited for single-serve smoothies, and you may prefer it for its smaller, lighter design.

Breville Boss To Go Sport

The Breville Boss To Go Sport is better than the NutriBullet Pro 1000. It's sturdier and better at processing fibrous ingredients common in smoothies, like fruit and leafy greens. It's also fantastic for ice crushing and nut butter, so it's very versatile for a personal blender. However, the NutriBullet can also make very well-blended smoothies and it's much quieter when it's running. 

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. However, the BELLA comes with two personal jars and a flat blade assembly for its small grinding cup.

It's tall for a personal blender with the jar docked on the motor base. Still, you can remove the jar for easier storage, and it doesn't take up too much room if you store it on the counter.

Build Quality

The NutriBullet PRO 1000 has decent build quality. This blender is mostly made of metal and plastic, which feels sturdy and solid. However, it's not as well-built as models like the NutriBullet Smart Touch Blender Combo because the transmission is made of plastic. The gears on top of the motor base spin easily when you untwist the jar, which can create more wear and tear on the transmission over time.

The jars themselves feel durable, but the lids are made of a brittle-feeling plastic that gets scuffed easily and can break after a few drips. The aluminum-looking finish on the base feels a bit cheap.

It comes with a pair of personal jars that are a good size for single-serve smoothies (32oz and 24oz). Many personal blenders' have a 20oz maximum capacity or less, so it's a good choice if you want bigger jars for protein shakes or substantial smoothies.

The blades aren't very sharp, which helps make them easier to clean. There are only four blades, unlike the NutriBullet Pro 900, which has an extra pair of blades under the other blades to help keep ingredients at the bottom of the jar moving. The blade assembly isn't dishwasher-safe.

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 is fantastic for small batches of fibrous ingredients. It makes a silky smoothie with fibrous ingredients with just a few tiny grains left over. The blender stops automatically after one minute of blending, and you need to run a couple of cycles to get the smoothest puree texture. It's a fantastic result, but the NutriBullet Pro 900 makes an even smoother blend after just one minute of blending.

It's excellent for processing fibrous ingredients at full capacity. If you fill the jar to the max, it takes several minutes of blending to get the best results, so it's slower than the NutriBullet Pro 900. Be careful, however, as you can overheat the motor if you run several one-minute blending cycles in a row without letting it rest. Still, it makes a well-blended puree with just a few small grains leftover.

It's mediocre for nut butter. It can make smooth, spreadable nut butter, but it's a lot of effort. You need to undock and shake the jar or remove its blade lid and use a spatula to frequently scrape the walls. The blender isn't meant to run continuously for longer than a minute, and if you run several blending cycles in a row, the blender overheats and the blades become hot to the touch. However, if you respect a one-minute blend cycle and let the motor rest, it eventually makes spreadable and mostly smooth nut butter.

It has one fast speed setting, like most bullet-style blenders. That's sufficient for well-blended smoothies, but you can't start at a lower speed to avoid over-blending something like salsa.

This straightforward personal blender doesn't have any controls. You simply dock and twist the jar to start blending, and the machine stops automatically after one minute. The manufacturer says not to run the blender for more than three one-minute blending cycles without letting it rest for at least a couple of minutes. If you push it to blend for longer without stopping, the motor can overheat.

Ease Of Use
Cleaning

It's decently easy to clean. Running the blender with soap and water in the jar removes some of the debris from the blades and walls of the jar. However, if you were working with sticky ingredients, you also need to scrub the grooves around the rim of the jar and blade assembly, which takes some time.
