The Magic Bullet

Rating: 4 out of 5
  • Currently 4.0/5.0

The Magic Bullet first appeared in an hour long corny commercial and the main claim was that it worked in just three seconds. I bought this product and attempted to spoof it for a class assignment and actually found it rather difficult. It really is the fastest working food processor and juicer that I've ever used. It's very compact and takes up virtually no counter space. At one time it consists of the motor, the screw on lid equipped with a blade and a cup. To use it, you just place the cup or blending body cup onto the motor piece after screwing on the bladed lid, twist it in so that it's locked, and then push down.

The Magic Bullet package comes with a few cups on which you screw the bladed lid and use on the bullet. The cups all have a handle and come with colored lip rings. Those cups and lids are microwave and dishwasher safe. It also comes with a smaller container that comes with a storage lid. This small container is most commonly used for when you grind coffee beans with the Magic Bullet. It performs that particular task exceptionally well and eliminates the need for an entirely separate machine that will cost you even more money. The Magic Bullet also comes with a variety of storage lids as well as microwave lids that have holes in the top.

The Magic Bullet will whip eggs, making preparing breakfast much easier and faster in preparation and clean up. It makes great salsa and juice from any vegetable as well as a mean smoothie or milkshake. While it is very convenient for making drinks, eggs, salsa, and even grinding coffee beans, it does have a few faults. When chopping, pulsing, or juicing vegetables, they have to be chopped. You can fit a whole onion and a tomato inside, but it will not chop them evenly. You can really only use mini vegetables or must chop your vegetables to the sixe of mini vegetables before hand. Also, when you blend something that needs ice, it will not blend entirely at the top. That problem is easily remedied by picking the Bullet up and shaking it, blending, and repeating until your drink is done. The last drawback with the Magic Bullet is that you can really only make one serving at a time. Still, the Magic Bullet is very convenient for making drinks on the go, takes up very little space, is very simple to use, and is very easily cleaned. The price is fairly reasonable at $60. I give the Magic Bullet four out of five stars.
