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.
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.
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.
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.
The NutriBullet PRO 1000 can't hot blend, so it isn't suitable for making soups.
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.
The NutriBullet PRO 1000 is a personal blender that's pretty small and compact. It can be stored on your kitchen counter or in a cupboard without taking up a lot of space. You can also remove the jar from the base for easier storage.
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.
The main jar has a 32-ounce capacity, so it's ideal for personal use. It can be cleaned in the top rack of your dishwasher.
This blender comes with an additional 24-ounce jar. It's also top-rack dishwasher-safe.
The blade assembly is made up of four dull blades. They aren't removable, and they can only be hand-washed.
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.
This blender doesn't have a control panel. It only has one speed, and you simply twist the jar to start the blender.
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.
The NutriBullet PRO 1000 is good for making smoothies. It blends a fairly thick, foamy smoothie. However, it struggles to blend leafy greens like kale, so you may need to shake the jar in order to get the kale incorporated into the vortex.
This blender comes with an additional 24-ounce jar. It's the same jar, but with a smaller size, so we expect it to perform similarly.
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.
This straightforward personal blender doesn't come with any additional modes or programs. You have to watch the blender and manually stop it when it's done blending.
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.
This blender doesn't come with a lot of additional features. There's an additional, 24-ounce personal jar, which is nice. However, you can't use this blender to hot blend soups or sauces.
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.
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.
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.
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.
