Professional Use

The NutriBullet Pro 900 is a personal blender with a pair of 32-ounce jars with to-go lids. It has a simple bullet design with no buttons or modes, and you just need to dock the jar on the base to blend. The jars and lids are dishwasher-safe, but the blades need to be hand-washed.

Our Verdict

6.0 Multi-Purpose

The NutriBullet Pro 900 is mediocre for multi-purpose use. Like most personal blenders, it can't hot blend and has a limited capacity, which limits its versatility. It's also not meant for crushing ice. That said, it easily blends ingredients like leafy greens into a silky-smooth puree. It's also an excellent choice for smaller batches of recipes like nut butter, hummus, or other dips and spreads. It's decently well-built and easy to clean. Not all of its components are dishwasher-safe, however.

Pros
  • Smoothly blends fibrous ingredients like kale.
  • Decently easy to clean.
  • Easily makes nut butter.
Cons
  • Can't crush ice.
  • Can't hot blend.
  • Not the most durable build.
8.1 Smoothies (Single Serving)

The NutriBullet Pro 900 is great for single-serve smoothies. It comes with a pair of 32-ounce jars that you can use to make silky smoothies, even if your recipe includes stubborn ingredients like kale or fruit skins. There are to-go lids for each jar, meaning you can bring your drink to-go. However, it's not the sturdiest blender, and you have to hand-wash the blades, which is a little disappointing if you want to clean your blender in the dishwasher.

Pros
  • Smoothly blends fibrous ingredients like kale.
  • To-go lids included.
Cons
  • Can't crush ice.
7.2 Smoothies (Multiple Servings)

The NutriBullet Pro 900 is decent for making multiple servings of smoothies. The 32-ounce jars can only make one or two servings at once, so it's not the most convenient to use to serve a lot of people. However, it's quick and easy to use to make a smoothie, and it makes a perfectly smooth blend with fruits and veggies, even if the jar is filled to full capacity.

Pros
  • Smoothly blends fibrous ingredients like kale.
Cons
  • Can't crush ice.
  • Small capacity.
2.1 Ice Crushing

Like most personal blenders from this brand, the NutriBullet Pro 900 isn't recommended to crush ice without liquid in the jar, according to the manual.

Pros
Cons
  • Can't crush ice.
  • Not the most durable build.
3.9 Soups

The NutriBullet Pro 900 can't hot blend, so it isn't suitable for making soups.

Pros
  • Smoothly blends fibrous ingredients like kale.
Cons
  • Can't hot blend.
  • Small capacity.
5.7 Professional Use

The NutriBullet Pro 900 is sub-par for professional use. This blender doesn't have the most durable build, and its 32-ounce jars aren't ideal for making large batches to feed multiple people. It can't crush ice or hot blend, either. However, it's outstanding at making smoothies, and it's pretty easy to clean. You can even wash the jars and the to-go lids in the top rack of your dishwasher.

Pros
  • Decently easy to clean.
  • Easily makes nut butter.
Cons
  • Can't hot blend.
  • Not the most durable build.
  • 6.0 Multi-Purpose
  • 8.1 Smoothies (Single Serving)
  • 7.2 Smoothies (Multiple Servings)
  • 2.1 Ice Crushing
  • 3.9 Soups
  • 5.7 Professional Use

Differences Between Sizes And Variants

The NutriBullet Pro 900 comes in a variety of different colors. You can buy a 9-piece set or a 13-piece set, which comes with additional lids and lip rings. Note that some vendors sell the 9-piece set without a recipe book and with a slightly smaller additional jar. Some variants have a matte rather than shiny finish on their motor base. These are sometimes called 'NutriBullet Pro Exclusive' and are generally only available directly through NutriBullet's website, although you can sometimes find a few available from online retailers.

We tested the 13-piece (Classic Metallic) Silver model but expect the other variants to perform similarly. If you come across a different variant, let us know in the discussions, and we'll update our review.

Compared To Other Blenders

The Nutribullet Pro 900W is a straightforward personal blender. It's outstanding for making smoothies, as its 32-ounce main jar and to-go lids make it a solid choice for blending single serves of your favorite drinks to bring on the go. It's also powerful enough for tougher tasks like making nut butter. However, similar to other NutriBullet blenders like the NutriBullet Pro+, it's not meant for crushing ice without liquid in the jar.

If you're looking for other options, take a look at our recommendations for the best blenders for smoothies, the best bullet blenders, and the best NutriBullet and Magic Bullet blenders.

NutriBullet Pro 1000

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.

Ninja Nutri-Blender Pro with Auto-iQ

The Ninja Nutri-Blender Pro with Auto-iQ is a bit better than the NutriBullet Pro 900. The Ninja is a little more versatile, since it can crush ice on its own. All of its components are dishwasher-safe and it's easier to clean by hand. However, the NutriBullet is quieter. It's also more convenient to use for thicker mixtures like nut butter or hummus. 

Ninja Nutri Ninja Pro

The NutriBullet Pro 900 is a little better than the Ninja Nutri Ninja Pro. The NutriBullet makes a silkier puree with fibrous fruits and vegetables. It's also much better for processing small batches of hard ingredients like nuts. It's quieter when it's running. On the other hand, the Ninja can crush ice without liquid in the jar. All of its components are dishwasher-safe and it's easier to clean by hand.

Ninja Nutri-Blender Plus

The NutriBullet Pro 900 is a better blender for smoothies than the Ninja Nutri-Blender Plus. It's easier to use and makes a smoother blend with common smoothie ingredients like kale or blueberries. It's also sturdier and quieter when it's running. However, the Ninja can make crushed ice to add to cocktails. All of its components are dishwasher-safe and it's easier to clean by hand.

Ninja Foodi Power Nutri DUO

The Ninja Foodi Power Nutri DUO is a better personal blender than the NutriBullet Pro 900. The Ninja feels better built and comes with a pair of 24-ounce jars for smoothies, and one 14-ounce jar with manually rotating arms that help push food into the blades' path. It makes better nut butter as well as smoothies, and it can make snow-like crushed ice. It's also easier to clean.

Ninja Fit

The NutriBullet Pro 900 is a better personal blender than the Ninja Fit. It's more convenient to use and faster at processing fibrous ingredients like kale, so it doesn't take as long to make a silky smoothie. It's easier to use for recipes like nut butter, comes with bigger jars, and it's quieter when it's running. Then again, the Ninja can crush ice without liquid in the jar. It's easier to clean by hand and all of its components are dishwasher-safe. 

NutriBullet Pro+

The NutriBullet Pro 900 is better than the NutriBullet Pro+. While both blenders have a similar overall performance, the Pro+ has a more powerful motor and can produce a better-blended smoothie with fibrous ingredients like kale. It's also easier to clean by hand.

Ninja Nutri Ninja Auto-iQ

The Ninja Nutri Ninja Auto-iQ is a more versatile personal blender than the NutriBullet Pro 900. The Ninja can make crushed ice for slushies or to add to cocktails. It's easier to clean by hand. However, the NutriBullet makes a smoother blend with fibrous fruits and vegetables, producing a smoother smoothie.

Magic Bullet Mini

The NutriBullet Pro 900 is a better blender than the Magic Bullet Mini. The NutriBullet is better built and more powerful. It does a better job with tough tasks like making nut butter and pureeing fibrous ingredients like leafy greens and fruit. On the other hand, the Magic Bullet is smaller and comes with an 8-ounce jar for blending small amount of things like salsa or dip.

Breville Boss To Go Sport

The Breville Boss To Go Sport is a better, more versatile personal blender than the NutriBullet Pro 900. The Breville has a much better build quality, and you can use it for ice crushing. All of its components are dishwasher-safe. However, the NutriBullet can make similarly silky smoothies, and its jars have bigger capacities.

BlendJet 2

The NutriBullet Pro 900 and the BlendJet 2 have different strengths. The NutriBullet is a more versatile machine since it can handle tougher tasks like making nut butter and liquifying fibrous ingredients like kale. On the other hand, the BlendJet is a portable, battery-powered blender, so you may prefer it if you want to blend on the go.

Magic Bullet Kitchen Express

The NutriBullet Pro 900 is a better personal blender than the Magic Bullet Kitchen Express. The NutriBullet is better built and comes with to-go lids for both jars. It's a better choice for single-serve smoothies since it makes a smoother puree with fibrous ingredients like kale. However, the Magic Bullet is a blender/food processor combo, so it comes with a separate bowl and blade for slicing and chopping.

Beast Health Blender

The Beast Health Blender is better than the NutriBullet Pro 900 for most purposes. The Beast has a significantly better build quality and a more versatile performance since you can crush ice without adding liquid to the jar. It does a better job of processing tough ingredients like nuts and is easier to clean by hand. However, both blenders make extremely silky blends with small batches of fibrous ingredients, and you may prefer the NutriBullet because it comes with two blending jars instead of just one.

Hamilton Beach Single-Serve Blender

The NutriBullet Pro 900 is a much better personal blender than the Hamilton Beach Single-Serve Blender. The NutriBullet is significantly sturdier and has a better blending performance since it can make nut butter and produce a smooth puree with fibrous ingredients like kale.

NutriBullet GO

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.

Magic Bullet Blender MBR-1101

The NutriBullet Pro 900 is better than the Magic Bullet Blender MBR 1101. It can make a smoother blend with ingredients like greens or fruit and comes with to-go lids for two of its jars instead of just one. It's also sturdier. 

Oster MyBlend

The NutriBullet Pro 900 is a better overall personal blender than the Oster MyBlend. The NutriBullet comes with a couple of jars for smoothies and does a better job processing fibrous ingredients like kale or fruit skin. It's easier to use to process thicker mixtures like making nut butter. Then again, you may like the Oster's more sporty, colorful design.

Smeg Personal Blender PBF01

The NutriBullet Pro 900 is better than the Smeg Personal Blender PBF01 for most purposes. The NutriBullet makes a much smoother blend with fibrous ingredients, which is important for well-blended smoothies. It has more convenient controls since you don't need to hold the jar down. However, the Smeg is smaller and lighter.

ZWILLING ENFINIGY Personal Blender

The NutriBullet Pro 900 is better than the ZWILLING ENFINIGY Personal Blender. The NutriBullet is a better smoothie-maker if more than one person at home drinks smoothies because it comes with two blending jars and to-go lids. It can also make a smoother blend with fibrous ingredients. On the other hand, if you want to make thicker recipes like nut butter or hummus, the ZWILLING is easier to use for that.

BELLA Rocket Blender

The NutriBullet Pro 900 is a significantly better personal blender than the BELLA Rocket Blender. It's much sturdier and can produce a much smoother blend with fibrous ingredients like kale. It can make smooth nut butter without too much effort on your part. The BELLA is much less versatile and powerful, but it comes with some unusual accessories, including a grinding cup for processing spices or coffee beans.

Build Quality

It has a decent build quality. The jar and lid are made of plastic, which feels solid, but it isn't very thick and may not withstand a lot of accidental drops. The motor base is made of aluminum and sits on a plastic base, but these materials also don't feel the most durable. If you're looking for a sturdier personal blender, check out the Beast Health Blender.

It's excellent for nut butter. It makes a smooth, spreadable butter with no chunks left over, and without a lot of effort on your part. It takes around three minutes of blending, with a few stops to undock and shake the jar to ensure all ingredients are in contact with the blades.

Ease Of Use
Cleaning

It's decently easy to clean. You can run the blender with soap and water in the jar to remove some residue. However, food can get caught in the ridges of the jar, the threads around the rim, and around the blade assembly, so you might need to scrub these parts with a sponge or brush. On the plus side, the blades are dull, which makes them easier to clean since there's less risk of cutting yourself than if you're cleaning a sharp-bladed blender like the Ninja Nutri-Blender Pro with Auto-iQ.
