"The Magic Bullet is both economical in design and quality."
The Magic Bullet Blender is an easy to use, convenient and inexpensive blender that could change the way you look at how blenders should be priced. Revelling in its simplicity, the Bullet is one of the most effective blenders on the market despite its unbelievably modest $30-40 price tag. While there are more powerful and more versatile blenders out there, none of them offer the sheer value for money that the Magic Bullet brings to the table. Matching its excellent performance levels with a smart and attractive design, the Bullet is both economical in design and quality.
You only need to take one look at the Magic Bullet to tell that it was designed with convenience in mind. With a height of just 6.5 inches, the Bullet is more compact than many other blenders. This gives the user more of a chance to place it suitably in your kitchen, without it standing out too much. Having a blender that takes up too much space can limit the amount of room that you’ve got in your kitchen, which is something that nobody wants. By having a compact blender like the Magic Bullet, you can fit into those smaller spaces in your kitchen without taking up too much room. With a weight of 4.7 pounds, the Bullet is also a lightweight blender compared to many others that you see, and these design choices make it a much more convenient option that can be used or moved around whenever you feel like it.
The silver base of the Magic Bullet gives it a sleek look that can resemble a number of other kitchen appliances, meaning that the Bullet could fit in beautifully with the rest of your kitchen’s equipment. There is no control panel on the Magic Bullet, and the blender simply turns on when you twist the cup onto the blade after placing it on the power base. This design makes the Bullet super easy to operate, although the lack of a control panel does limit the amount of functions that can be performed. Thanks to how hassle-free it is, the Bullet is a durable blender that can last you a long time, increasing how much value for money you can get from it even more. Even if there are faults with your model, the Magic Bullet has a 1 year warranty that can used to get a replacement or repair sorted out.
The Magic Bullet, despite its lack of specialised function buttons and settings, allows you to blend numerous foods for a variety of purposes. With the Bullet’s 2 spinning blades, you can chop, mix, blend, whip, grind and much more. Its astounding that a blender this simple and basic can be as versatile as this. Of course, the pricier blenders will be able to perform these functions in a more specialised manner and will have more specific design features that allow them to blend in a variety of different ways. However, when all is said and done, the Magic Bullet can do nearly as much as some of the world’s most expensive blenders, despite costing hundreds less than many. While it struggles in areas such as soup making and blending hot foods, one attribute of the Magic Bullet that it excels in is its ability to make great baby food, so if that is what you’re looking for in a blender, then the Bullet could be perfect for you.
Furthermore, the simple design of the Bullet means that all you have to do is load your ingredients and twist the cup on the power base to start blending, eliminating the lengthier process of selecting a certain setting before starting to blend. The Magic Bullet is powered by 250W, which is considerably less than many more expensive blenders. While this does make the Bullet considerably less powerful than certain other blenders, the lack of power is hard to notice in the Bullet’s performance levels. Alongside the blender itself, the Magic Bullet comes with a set of 11 total pieces, including 6 cups that are made out of high-impact plastic.
Ease of Use
Included with the cups that comes alongside the Magic Bullet is a Flip Top To-Go Lid that allows you to take your blended ingredients on the go with you. This means that you can get great use from the Bullet even if you’re in a great rush. With how straightforward and simple the Magic Bullet is to operate as well, its hard to think of another blender that is as convenient and easy to use as this one. While there are no special programmed blending settings, the Bullet’s manual does give three different blending techniques: the pulse, the shake and the tap. Using these three techniques helps you to obtain the most consistent and smooth blended products. Not only is it very simple to operate, but the Bullet is really easy to clean too. All that it normally takes to clean the blender is a quick rinse under the tap, though every element except from the power base is dishwasher-safe, meaning that a dishwasher trip will also do the trick. In terms of noise level, the Magic Bullet is pretty average when compared with other similar blenders. Like the majority of blenders, it’s rather loud, but no noisier than other blenders that you would compare it to.
In conclusion, it would be very hard to find another blender that offers anywhere near the value for money that the Magic Bullet does. For a price of just $30-40, you could get yourself a blender that is unbelievably convenient and remarkably simple to operate. While it may be lacking in power when compared to some of the more expensive blenders, when you compare the performance of the Magic Bullet to that of other blenders it’s hard to think of reasons why you’d spend hundreds when you could spend less than $50 and get a top quality appliance.
