The NutriBullet Pro 900 is a personal blender with two 32-ounce main jars that are ideal for making single-serve smoothies. It can make a silky, well-blended smoothie, and it doesn't have any issues incorporating fibrous ingredients like kale into the blend. There are even two to-go lids so you can bring your drink on-the-go. It comes in lots of different colors, so you can easily find a style that matches your kitchen decor. However, it isn't very versatile, as it can't hot blend or crush ice. Only the to-go lids and the jars are top-rack dishwasher-safe, so you have to hand wash the lid with the blade assembly.

Our Verdict

6.0 Multi-Purpose

The NutriBullet Pro 900 is disappointing for multi-purpose use. It can't crush ice or hot blend ingredients, and it takes a bit of time to make sticky, spreadable almond butter. It's decently easy to wash by hand, but stickier ingredients like nut butter tend to get stuck in the lid. The jars and the to-go lids are top-rack dishwasher-safe, but you'll need to hand wash the lid with the blade assembly. On the upside, it's exceptional for making smoothies.

Pros
  • Easily blends leafy greens like kale.
  • Decently easy to clean.
Cons
  • Can't crush ice.
  • Can't hot blend.
  • Not the most durable build.
8.1 Smoothies (Single Serving)

2.1 Ice Crushing

The NutriBullet Pro 900 isn't meant to crush ice, according to its manual.

3.9 Soups

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

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.
Cons
  • Can't crush ice.
  • Can't hot blend.
  • Not the most durable build.

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. We tested the 13-piece Silver model, but we expect the other variants to perform similarly. If you come across a different variant, let us know in the discussion section below so that we can update our review.

Compared To Other Blenders

The Nutribullet Pro 900W is a straightforward personal blender. It's outstanding for making smoothies, and 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 comes in many different color variants, too. However, this blender isn't very versatile, as it can't hot blend or crush ice.

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 almond butter than the 1000. However, the 1000 can crush ice, and it's also easier to clean.

NutriBullet Pro+

The NutriBullet Pro+ is a better personal blender for making smoothies than the NutriBullet Pro 900. While both blenders have similar overall performance, the Pro+ has a more powerful motor and makes a better smoothie. It's also easier to clean by hand. That said, the Pro comes in more color variants, which some users may prefer.

NutriBullet Rx

Depending on your needs, you may prefer either the NutriBullet Pro 900 or the NutriBullet Rx. The Pro is much smaller and makes significantly better smoothies in both of its jars. On the other hand, the Rx can crush ice on its own. It can also warm up cold ingredients, it's easier to clean by hand, and it comes with three jars rather than two.

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 crush ice, and it comes with a timer and a dedicated Pulse button, unlike the NutriBullet. The Ninja is also easier to clean by hand. That said, the NutriBullet comes with a larger-sized main jar, and it makes a better-blended, silkier smoothie.

Ninja Nutri Ninja Pro

The NutriBullet Pro 900 and the Ninja Nutri Ninja Pro are both personal blenders, and depending on your usage habits, you may prefer one over the other. The Ninja comes with more jars, and it's easier to clean. It can also crush ice, unlike the NutriBullet. However, the NutriBullet makes smoother almond butter and a better-blended smoothie.

Ninja Nutri-Blender Pro with Auto-iQ

The NutriBullet Pro 900 and the Ninja Nutri-Blender Pro with Auto-iQ have different strengths, and you may prefer either. The NutriBullet makes better-blended smoothies and comes with lip rings and cup rings as well as to-go lids for its two personal jars. However, the Ninja can make crushed ice. It's also easier to clean by hand when you're working with sticky ingredients, and its blade assembly is dishwasher-safe, unlike the NutriBullet's. 

Ninja Nutri-Blender Plus

The Ninja Nutri-Blender Plus is better than the NutriBullet Pro 900. Both models make fantastic smoothies, but the Ninja comes with one extra jar, makes much better almond butter, and can crush ice, unlike the NutriBullet. On the other hand, the NutriBullet's two jars have a bigger capacity and come with lip rings as well as to-go lids. It also has a much better build quality.

Ninja Fit

The Ninja Fit is a slightly better personal blender than the NutriBullet Pro 900. Βoth models make fantastic smoothies with ingredients like kale, but the Ninja can be used to crush ice. It's also a bit smaller, easier to clean by hand, and its blade assembly is dishwasher-safe, along with the jars and lids. On the other hand, the NutriΒullet comes with bigger 32-ounce jars, which some may prefer to the Ninja's 16-ounce jars.

BlendJet 2

The NutriBullet Pro 900 is a better blender than the BlendJet 2 for most uses. The NutriBullet makes a much silkier smoothie and smooth, spreadable nut butter. It also comes with an additional jar. 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. 

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 two 24-ounce jars and one unique 14-ounce jar with manually rotating arms that help push food into the blade's path. It makes better nut butter as well as smoothies, and it can make snow-like crushed ice. It's also easier to clean.

Magic Bullet Blender MBR-1101

The NutriBullet Pro 900 is better for single-serve smoothies than the Magic Bullet Blender MBR 1101. The NutriBullet is better built and comes with to-go lids for both of its jars. It also makes a smoother blend with fibrous ingredients like kale.

Magic Bullet Mini

The NutriBullet Pro 900 is a better blender than the Magic Bullet Mini. The NutriBullet is much more powerful, is better built, and makes a smoother nut butter and a silkier smoothie. On the other hand, the Magic Bullet has a dedicated pulse button, and it has a small 8oz jar for smaller mixes.

NutriBullet GO

The NutriBullet Pro 900 is a better blender for most uses than the NutriBullet GO. The Pro makes decent almond butter and incredible, silky smoothies. Its jar also has a much larger capacity of 32 ounces. However, the GO is a very small, portable, battery-powered blender, and it also feels more sturdy.

Ninja DUO

The Ninja DUO is better than the NutriBullet Pro 900 for most purposes. The Ninja is full-size blender that comes with a 72-ounce main jar as well as a pair of smaller personal jars. It has a much better build quality, can crush ice, and does a much better job of making almond butter. There's also a juicer attachment included, although we don't test it currently. However, the NutriBullet is a more compact personal blender that makes significantly better-blended smoothies. 

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 use it to crush ice without adding liquid to the jar. It does a better job of processing tough ingredients like nuts, and it's 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 better personal blender than the Hamilton Beach Single-Serve Blender. The NutriBullet is better-built, and it can make almond butter, unlike the Hamilton Beach. It also comes with an additional jar, and it makes a better smoothie. However, the Hamilton Beach is easier to clean by hand.

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 is better-built, and unlike the NutriBullet, it can crush ice. The Breville is also better for making smooth, spreadable almond butter. That said, the NutriBullet comes with a slightly larger personal jar, which some users may prefer.

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 for tough tasks like making nut butter. Then again, you may like the Oster's more sporty, colorful design.

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 it's more versatile. It makes a smoother, more spreadable almond butter and a better-blended smoothie. However, the Magic Bullet comes with a food processing attachment.

Ninja Foodi Power Pitcher SS201

The Ninja Foodi Power Pitcher SS201 is better for most purposes than the NutriBullet Pro 900. The Ninja is a full-size blender with a bigger capacity and more than one speed setting. It's easier to clean by hand and does a better job of making crushed ice and almond butter. On the other hand, the NutriBullet is a personal blender intended for making single-serve drinks. It makes better-blended smoothies in its 20-ounce personal jars, which come with matching to-go lids, cup rings, and lip rings to make them easier to drink out of. 

BELLA Rocket Blender

The NutriBullet Pro 900 is a significantly better personal blender for making smoothies than the BELLA Rocket Blender. The NutriBullet can make an outstandingly silky smoothie in under two minutes. It also has a better build quality, it can make decent almond butter, and it's easier to clean, too. However, the BELLA comes with two personal jars and a flat blade assembly for its small grinding cup.

The NutriBullet Pro is a compact personal blender. While it's slightly larger than the BELLA Rocket Blender, it can still be stored on your kitchen counter or in a cupboard without taking up a lot of space. You can even remove the jar from the motor base to make it easier to store.

Build Quality

The NutriBullet Pro 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 be able to withstand a lot of accidental drops. The motor base is made of aluminum and sits on a plastic base, and 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 decent for almond butter. It makes sticky, spreadable butter without any unprocessed chunks. Per the manufacturer's recommendation, you should stop the blender after a minute and let it cool down for a minute before starting it back up again. While the blender's stopped, you may need to use a spatula to mix in unprocessed chunks so they incorporate into the blend. It can get a little messy when you have to unscrew the lid and blade assembly from the jar and some of the contents call fall out, which is inconvenient. If you're looking for a personal blender that makes even better almond butter, consider the Ninja Foodi Power Nutri DUO.

Update 10/08/2020: We updated the Pulse/Turbo Mode score to Yes. Though it's not mentioned in the manual or on the manufacturer's website, pushing down on the jar and twisting in short bursts simulates a pulse mode.

This blender doesn't have a control panel as there's only one speed. Like the NutriBullet PRO 1000, you have to twist the jar into place to start the blender. Note that the manufacturer recommends that you run the blender for one minute at a time, then let it cool down for another minute before starting it up again. For three consecutive cycles, you should let the blender cool down for two to three minutes before starting it up again to prevent overheating. For a blender with a dedicated and easy-to-use pulse mode, check out the Magic Bullet Mini.

Cleaning

This blender is decently easy to clean. Liquid messes like smoothies can be easily cleaned with soap and warm water. However, stickier messes like nut butter tend to get stuck in the grooves on the bottom of the lid, so you may need to use a sponge and a brush to clean them properly. The cups and the lids are also top-rack dishwasher-safe. However, it's not as easy to clean by hand as the Hamilton Beach Single-Serve Blender or the Ninja Nutri-Blender Pro with Auto-iQ.
