Professional Use

The NutriBullet Pro+ is a personal blender. Its 24-ounce and 32-ounce jars come with to-go lids and cup rings, so you can bring your drink with you on the go. Its simple design includes a button for pulse mode. You can wash most of its components in the top rack of your dishwasher, but the blade assembly has to be cleaned by hand.

Our Verdict

5.9 Multi-Purpose

The NutriBullet Pro+ is middling for multi-purpose use. This personal blender is well-suited for making single-serve drinks like smoothies and protein shakes. However, it can't crush ice, and it can't hot blend. It doesn't have the most premium build, and you have to clean its blade assembly by hand.

Pros
  • Most parts are dishwasher safe.
Cons
  • Can't hot blend.
  • Can't crush ice.
  • Small capacity meant for single-serves.
7.8 Smoothies (Single Serving)

The NutriBullet Pro+ is good for single-serve smoothies. With both its 32-ounce and 24-ounce jars, it's incredible for making smoothies, even if your recipe includes fibrous ingredients like kale. There's a matching to-go lid included for each jar, so you can easily bring your drink with you on the go. Unfortunately, while the jars and lids are dishwasher-safe, the blades are not.

Pros
  • Most parts are dishwasher safe.
  • Easily processes leafy greens like kale.
Cons
  • Can't crush ice.
7.1 Smoothies (Multiple Servings)

The NutriBullet Pro+ is decent for making multiple servings of smoothies. The biggest jar has a 32-ounce capacity, so you can't make a big batch to serve a crowd. Still, if you fill the jar, it makes a silky blend with fibrous ingredients like kale. However, the manufacturer says to let the blender rest for one minute for each minute of blending, so it's not ideal for making several batches.

Pros
  • Easily processes leafy greens like kale.
Cons
  • Can't crush ice.
  • Small capacity meant for single-serves.
2.1 Ice Crushing

The NutriBullet Pro+ isn't intended for crushing ice. You can add ice cubes to the jar, but only if you also add liquid.

Pros
  • Most parts are dishwasher safe.
Cons
  • Can't crush ice.
3.9 Soups

The NutriBullet Pro+ isn't safe for hot blending, so it's not well-suited for soups. You can use it to blend fibrous ingredients for recipes like pureed broccoli soup, but its small capacity is limiting.

Pros
  • Easily processes leafy greens like kale.
Cons
  • Can't hot blend.
  • Small capacity meant for single-serves.
5.6 Professional Use

The NutriBullet Pro+ is sub-par for professional use. It doesn't have the most durable build, and its small capacity jars aren't ideal for making large batches of food. It can't hot blend, and it can't crush ice. On the upside, it makes a very smooth blend with fibrous ingredients, which makes it a good choice for smoothies. It can also make smooth, spreadable nut butter, but it's not the most convenient to use for that purpose.

Pros
  • Most parts are dishwasher safe.
Cons
  • Can't hot blend.
  • Can't crush ice.

Differences Between Sizes And Variants

The NutriBullet Pro Plus comes in Gray, and you can see the label for the model we tested here.

If you come across any other variants of this blender, let us know in the discussions.

Compared To Other Blenders

The NutriBullet Pro Plus is a personal blender with both a 32-ounce and a 24-ounce jar. It has a similar design to other NutriBullet blenders, like the NutriBullet Pro 1000. It's fantastic for blending fibrous ingredients like kale, although the NutriBullet Pro 900 makes better-blended smoothies. Unlike personal blenders like the Ninja Foodi Power Nutri DUO, it's not meant for crushing ice without liquid in the jar.

If you're looking for more blenders, check out our recommendations for the best blenders, the best blenders for smoothies, and the best blenders for crushing ice.

NutriBullet Pro 900

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.

NutriBullet Pro 1000

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.

NutriBullet Rx

The NutriBullet Rx and the NutriBullet Pro+ have different strengths, and you may prefer either, depending on your preferences. The Rx is more versatile since it can make crushed ice and heat room-temperature ingredients. The Pro+ makes a somewhat less smooth blend with fibrous ingredients like kale but comes with to-go lids for its personal jars, which you might prefer if you're looking for a blender for smoothies.

Magic Bullet Mini

The NutriBullet Pro+ is better than the Magic Bullet Mini. The NutriBullet has a significantly better build quality and comes with lip rings and drinking lids for both of its personal jars. It makes a silky smoothie with fibrous ingredients more quickly, and it's way more suitable for making thick mixtures like nut butter. On the other hand, the Magic Bullet is a smaller, lighter blender and can produce silky smoothies with ingredients like kale.

Ninja Nutri Ninja Auto-iQ

The Ninja Nutri Ninja Auto-iQ is a little better than the NutriBullet Pro+. The Ninja is more versatile since it can crush ice. It's easier to clean by hand, and the blades, as well as the jars and lids, are all dishwasher-safe. On the other hand, the Pro+ is easier to use to make nut butter.

Beast Health Blender

The Beast Health Blender is better for most purposes than the NutriBullet Pro+. The Beast has a much better build quality, it's quieter, and makes a somewhat smoother blend with fibrous ingredients like kale. You can also use it to crush ice without liquid in the jar. On the other hand, the NutriBullet comes with two jars you can use to make smoothies to-go, and the Beast just has one.

Breville Boss To Go Sport

The Breville Boss To Go Sport is a better personal blender than the NutriBullet Pro+. The Breville is better built and more versatile since it can crush ice. Its jars, lids, and blades are all dishwasher-safe. On the other hand, the NutriBullet is much quieter. It comes with cup rings as well as resealable lids for its jars.

Ninja Nutri-Blender Plus

The NutriBullet Pro+ is better for smoothies than the Ninja Nutri-Blender Plus. The NutriBullet makes a smoother blend with fibrous ingredients like kale. It has a much better build quality, a button for pulse mode, and comes with cup rings and to-go lids for its two personal jars. On the other hand, the Ninja is easier to clean by hand. All of its components, including its blades, are dishwasher-safe. You can also use it to crush ice.

Ninja Foodi Power Nutri DUO

The Ninja Foodi Power Nutri DUO is better than the NutriBullet Pro+. The DUO is significantly better built and does a better job of making nut butter. It can also make snow-like crushed ice, comes with more jars, and is easier to clean. On the other hand, the Pro+ is much quieter when it's running.

Build Quality

The NutriBullet Pro+ is decently well-built. The body is made of brushed aluminum and sits on a plastic base. There are four suction-cup legs to help keep the blender in place while running. The jars, lip rings, and lids are made of plastic, which feels sturdy and durable. However, the motor base transmission is made of plastic, which may not be as durable as a metal transmission.

The NutriBullet Pro Plus is outstanding for processing small batches of fibrous ingredients. If you're making something like a kale smoothie, it quickly processes the ingredients with a few specks left over.

The NutriBullet Pro Plus is superb for processing fibrous ingredients at full capacity. The 32-ounce jar can only fit enough to serve one or two people, but if you use its full capacity, it quickly blends fibrous ingredients like kale into an almost perfectly smooth puree.

The NutriBullet Pro Plus is great for nut butter. It takes several one-minute blending cycles to make smooth, spreadable nut butter. You need to let the motor rest for one minute between each blending cycle, which adds to the total blending time. While the motor is resting, you have to shake the jar to keep the ingredients moving.

The NutriBullet Pro Plus only has one speed, and it's quite loud. There's also a dedicated button for the pulse mode.

Cleaning

The NutriBullet Pro Plus is decently easy to clean. For liquid messes like smoothies, you can rinse the blender using water. You can clean stickier messes like almond butter by running a water and soap blend for 60 seconds. While the cup, to-go lids, and lip rings are top-rack dishwasher-safe, you have to wash the blades by hand.
