Magic Bullet Single Shot Reviews

Description

The Magic Bullet Single Shot is an entirely new concept in labor-saving devices. Unlike bulky blenders and unwieldy food processors that most of us only pull out of storage for specific recipes and special occasions, the Magic Bullet Single Shot is so handy, so versatile and easy to use that you'll put it to work EVERY single day (probably several times a day). Best of all, it saves you time because it does almost any job in the kitchen in 10 seconds or less!

    I love my Magic Bullet!
    I use it every single morning to make myself a healthy smoothie :)
    It makes breakfast really simple since the bullet is so easy to use!
    Just throw in the ingredients, screw on the blade, flip over and press down :)
    You can even drink out of the same cup you made the smoothie in because of the twist-on colored drink rims :) and it's also really easy to clean! :)
    I wouldn't trade my bullet for anything in the world!
    It also comes with a really cool recipe book :)
    I highly recommend this product! :)

    Yet another appliance and worse from an infomercial? I was fascinated and I bought it. It lives on my counter and has been used for more than 3 years... EVERY day. We use to to make protein shakes in the morning - liquid balanced breakfast. In a pinch, we grind our coffee beans in it, make fruit smoothies, or more rarely chop nuts, whip up an omelet, or make salsa. The quality is clearly good... mine works fine after 3 years. I think its a deal that can't be beat! Canadian Tire sometimes has a great deal on these.

    I'm really surprised how often I use this product.I thought when buying it that it may be yet another gadget that will be stuck in the back of my cupboard.I find I use it all the time.This summer I froze,blueberries,raspberries,apple slices and variety of local fruits.Its so easy and convenient to throw a handful in with some yogurt,soy milk,protein powder and honey and its a delicious treat.I love how after making the smoothie its already in a cup with a handle so no extra dishes and a lid if I dont finish it.I also often make fresh salsa in it which is awesome!But my main use is the herbs from my garden after drying them out then grind up so well in the magic bullet.Anything from dried chillies to basil its the best for a fine grind on herbs.

    Usually I'm not someone who watches infomercials, in fact as soon as one pops up onto my television I make an 'Ugh' noise and immediately change the channel. However, due to unemployment circumstance needless to say i have a lot of free time on my hands. So I'd often get interested in a product called "The Magic Bullet" which is a bizarre name. But as I am someone always loving to make my own smoothies and drinks with fruit and juices etc in a pure and healthy way with out any of the crappy additives. But bringing out my old, heavy blender is such a pain in the butt to clean everyday especially when I actually have a social life. So I was starting not to make my typical smoothies for breakfast, lunch due to my laziness for not want to pull the blender a part and scrub everything.

    But then I was reading my local paper and looking through the flyers and found the Magic Bullet was on for half price at Canadian Tire. And i had been given quite a bit of Christmas money and couldn't come up with a single thing to spend it on. I decided to be spontaneous and purchase it. And girls, I don't regret it AT ALL. This little machine is so powerful and easy to use. It grinds up ice for alcoholic beverages and completely blends fresh fruits, yogurts for smoothies. The best part is that there are only two pieces you need to clean after wards, i usually through the cup part into my dish washer. (top rack so its not too hot and wont melt the plastic) and use some soap, a brush on the blade part. Now I find myself having way more healthier drinks, desserts every day, I can't even tell you. I even add a little flax meal into my smoothies for extra protein and fibre. Seriously, was the best thing i bought this winter.

    I had my bullet for about 6 years until it finally died on me about a week ago. I used it for baby food the most. It's great for whipping cream, it takes about 30 seconds! Not as good when you are chopping food though. It tends to mush it up even when you are pulsing. It's a great little gadget and very handy and easy to clean. I am definitely going to buy another one!

    I had the magic bullet with me while living away from home at University. Yes, it is nice that the container is small so you can make a one-person portion. And yes, it was handy at first that the container you blend in doubles as a mug (even though I found bits of smoothie would get caught in the rim and be impossible to get out).

    But I really don't think this product is anything special. I'd much rather just use a really great full size blender that has larger and sharper blades. I often found large chunks of fruits in my smoothies -- which I must add I NEVER have now that I've switched to a regular full-sized blender.

    I also found that after about 6 months of using it regularly, it started to make funny sounds when it blended. From there is slowly started breaking down. The day it started to smell like rubber after use was the day I tossed mine.

    I'd say this product is mediocre. The craze can really be attributed to the good marketing techniques (don't tell me you don't remember those infomercials). I would not purchase again.

    I received 22-pc set from my in-laws one year for Christmas, who bought it from an infomercial on a special deal. I mention this because I'm happy they didn't pay full price (which at the time was $99 CAD).

    From the infomercial this really seems like the ultimate tool - blender, chopper, grinder, juicer, etc. And on a few of those tasks, it really does live up to the hype. It's effective and cleanup is a snap because the smallish components are quickly assembled/disassembled and easily fit in the top rack of my dishwasher. I love using it for smoothies, creamed soups, jams, baby food, and anything that's a little more liquidy.

    But the recipes I was most excited about from the infomercial - guacamole, quesadillas, chicken salad, less liquidy baby food, etc - were complete flops because they stuck to the blades or sides and half of the ingredients remained completely intact while the rest was pureed (and not in a good way). Chopping cheese? Puhleeze (sorry about the rhyme)! The juicer is also a bit of a let down, and I almost never use it.

    However, the motor is well powered and I like that there are 2 different blades (chopping and grinding), so I do use this quite a lot for certain tasks. I've had it now for probably 5 or 6 years and it's still in perfect condition.

    I do recommend this machine, but don't allow the infomercial to mislead you. I don't know how they manage to demonstrate so convincingly on TV what is such an utter let down in real life - there are no additional tips in the recipe book that helped me figure that one out.

    I received the Magic Bullet as a gift and was really exicted to use it for smoothies. I received the 22-piece set, which comes with grinding and blending/chopping blades, multiple portable cups, tall cups, short cups, and blender.

    It's sort of hit and miss, as it works wonders on certain tasks but falls flat on others. It can't crush ice at all, and makes a real mushy egg salad (even from the Magic Bullet recipe book), but I haven't had any issues with any other foods. I ground up flaxseed and it worked like a charm, and a regular smoothie containing frozen berries, bananas and such turn out great.

    I definitely don't think it works as great as the company claims, but if you understand its pros and cons prior to buying it, I think you will be happy with the convenience of it.
