About NutriBullet Rx

Unlike juicers that can remove most of the nutrient-packed fiber from your fruits and vegetables, or blenders that leave big, unappetizing chunks, the NutriBullet Rx is a countertop kitchen device that claims to use a unique extraction technology to turn your favorite whole fruits and vegetables into “supremely healthful” drinks (known as NutriBlasts), which are smooth and evenly textured. In addition, the NutriBullet Rx is claimed to be so easy to use that you simply add your favorite ingredients along with water, and then extract the nutrients to make salad dressings, nut butters, desserts, dips, fondues, and more.

How Does the NutriBullet Rx Claim to Work?

In the world of product development, what’s the best way to keep your customers hungry for more (no pun intended)? By taking a very successful existing product and redesigning it, which is precisely what the NutriBullet Rx claims to do.

When compared to previous models, the NutriBullet Rx is claimed to feature a 2.3 horsepower motor, turbo extractor blades, and exclusive cyclonic action that breaks down the toughest foods at the cellular level, making the nutrients they contain more easily absorbed by your body. The NutriBullet Rx is also claimed to feature scientifically advanced Smart Technology that automatically determines how fast the blade should spin based on the ingredients you’ve included in the pitcher. In fact, the NutriBullet Rx’s pre-programmed function is claimed to provide hands-free operation, without the need for an on/off switch, plungers, speed adjustment, or time settings.

Another new feature unique to the NutriBullet Rx is the ability to make SouperBlasts (warm versions of NutriBlasts), which is claimed to help you create piping hot soup or sauces in 7 minutes by simply adding your favorite vegetables, liquid (e.g. water or broth), and spices to the pitcher. Also, the NutriBullet Rx’s pitcher and cups are claimed to be more family-friendly by providing increased capacity.

How to Use the NutriBullet Rx

Because the NutriBullet Rx is claimed to activate as soon as you place the cup/blade attachment onto the powerbase, to turn at the precise RPM, and to stop/start at exactly the right time, the manufacturer claims that it provides hands-free extraction that make the most potent, nutrient packed superfood drink possible.

Once you’ve placed the cup/blade attachment onto the powerbase, the light on the front button will glow green to let you know that it’s in NutriBlast Mode, which will blend for 1 minute. However, if you’d like to create a warm beverage, you can press the button once, at which point it will glow red to indicate that the 7-minute Heated Cycle has been activated.

According to the product’s website, the NutriBullet Rx’s cups are made of a non-toxic, high-impact plastic that contain no BPA (Bisphenol A) or Phthalates. And once you’re finished making your beverage, they can be rinsed and added to the top rack of your dishwasher for easy cleanup. However, the pitcher and base will need to be hand washed.

NutriBullet Rx Pricing & Refund Policy

If purchased directly through the manufacturer, the NutriBullet Rx is priced at 5 payments of $39.99, or a single payment of $199.95, plus $19.95 S&H, bringing your total to $219.90.

With your order, you’ll receive the following:

  • High Torque Power Base
  • 1 Liter SouperBlast Pitcher
  • Two-piece SouperBlast Lid
  • 30oz Short Cup
  • 45oz Oversized Cup
  • User Manual
  • Pitcher Lid
  • Lip Ring
  • Extractor Blade
  • Blade Remover
  • Stay-Fresh Lid
  • NutriBullet Rx Recipe Book, which is claimed to contain 150 pages of recipes and information specifically tailored to the NutriBullet Rx.

The NutriBullet Rx automatically comes with a 1-year warranty against defects in materials or workmanship, although the product’s website claims that a 4-year extended warranty (for a total of 5 years) can be purchased at checkout. However, when attempting to place an order, we were not provided an option to purchase an extended warranty.

All manufacturer-direct NutriBullet Rx purchases come with a 30-day refund policy, less S&H charges. In order to initiate the refund process, you’ll need to contact customer service at (844) 696-2791.

Keep in mind that the NutriBullet Rx is also available through a wide variety of third-party retailers, including Bed Bath & Beyond, Walmart.com, Kohl’s, Macy’s, and many more. If purchased through another retailer, your refund policy may vary.

What Do Other Consumers Have to Say About the NutriBullet Rx?

Overall, based on user reviews found online at Amazon.com, BedBathandBeyond.com, BBB.org, and more, the NutriBullet Rx appears to have an evenly mixed online customer reputation, with some of the most common compliments referencing its good performance/ability to blend well, its big containers, and its ease of use/cleaning.

However, some of the most common complaints appear to reference noisy operation, faulty products (e.g. has a tendency to leak, seized bearings, the blade gasket will not remain in place when blending—one customer even claimed that theirs caught on fire), and difficulty obtaining parts under warranty.

Is the NutriBullet Rx Worth Your Money?

Considering the huge popularity of the original NutriBullet, we can understand why you’d be interested in purchasing the new NutriBullet Rx. But when it comes down to it, is it ultimately worth the money? Perhaps, but consider the following:

Customers Speak Out About NutriBullet Rx’s Design Flaw

Overwhelmingly, the number one complaint we encountered during our research is that the NutriBullet Rx’s blade gasket can become dislodged when blending, which is then cut by the blade, thereby allowing liquid to leak from the bottom.

Admittedly, the manufacturer appears to address these problems quickly by sending out new blade assemblies, but despite the apparently widespread issue, one Amazon reviewer stated that a NutriBullet customer service agent told them the design remains unchanged (as of 10/1/14). This is clearly a design flaw that the company should address.

It’s also important to note that, although the original NutriBullet also appears to have a mostly positive customer reputation, many have complained of the same leaking issues as the NutriBullet Rx.

NutriBullet Rx’s Warranty

Although it’s positive that the NutriBullet Rx comes with a warranty against defects, numerous BBB complaints referenced difficulty obtaining approval from the company to process a warranty, and/or receiving replacement parts.

Also, keep in mind that if you decide to process a warranty claim and need to send a portion of the NutriBullet Rx back to the manufacturer, you may be responsible for return shipping charges.

Information Sharing

Finally, keep in mind that, according to the NutriBullet Rx’s Privacy Policy, “We may also share your personal information with selected third parties so that you may receive special offers and promotions from them.” And while you can opt out of having your information shared, remember that you may receive sales calls/spam in the interim.

Bottom line:

For the most part, it appears the majority of NutriBullet Rx customers have been satisfied with their purchase, even among those who received a unit with a faulty blade gasket. However, although the NutriBullet Rx may help provide you with a wide range of health benefits, keep in mind that it’s only as healthy as the ingredients you put in it.

  • RIP

    I was thrilled when my NutriBullet RX arrived. Yes, happiness was rampant. However, in six short months the unit was leaking all over the place and as if that were not enough the motor shaft snapped and thus dies a horrible death. So much hype on such a lousy product. And yes, I know how to take care of my health equipment.

    If you are planning on buying this item, think again.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    A leaky disaster

    • Simi Valley, CA,
    • Mar 19, 2017
    • Verified Reviewer

    The blender is terrible no matter how tight you get it. It leaks even with a water test. The manufacturer is well aware of the problem but fails to do a recall on this faulty product. Do not buy. Also, it does not blend that well.

    Warm smoothies

    I'm so frustrated with this soup maker they call a smoothie maker. All my smoothies, no matter what I do, turn out almost warm-like, it makes me so angry. If you like room temperature smoothies get one, but personally, I don't. I wouldn't recommend this to anybody.

    This is the truth and nothing but the truth.

    Unit heats up.

    • St. Louis, MO,
    • Sep 29, 2016
    • Verified Reviewer

    We saw the information on TV and got excited about the soups you could make. Although that is very misleading, only 1 or 2 are actually cooked by the unit.

    Then some of our smoothies started being slightly warm even with ice, a little gross. I thought we were doing something wrong. I think this great idea needs some work and the advertising should get cleaned up.

    I was telling my daughter about it and was going to get her one for Christmas. I don't want to give her something that doesn't work anything like what I told her. Shame on the company.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Don't waste your money!

    I bought a Nutribullet Rx on April 28, 2016. I used it maybe 4 times and the motor leaks. I called customer service today and they told me to buy a replacement part. Why do I need to buy a replacement part for a NEW item that shouldn't leak?! This leaking issue is clearly documented online. Wish I would have known this prior to buying it. As a business owner, their customer service is awful. I highly recommend buying an alternative.

    I loved it at first until just under a year it started smoking while juicing oranges. Big waste of money and disappointing. I had the smaller NutriBullet before and it didn't last over a year either. I am done with NutriBullet brand!

    Blade housing is faulty

    • Illinois,
    • Dec 24, 2015
    • Verified Reviewer

    I found the NutriBullet Rx to be very faulty. If you remove the four little screws in the blade assembly, you will see all the old foods there that you are eating over and over. It gets there through the little tabs that are spring loaded, but not sealed from the liquids that you're grinding up. Several family members have reported stomach pains, diarrhea and vomiting. Consumer, beware.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Loved it, but it broke...twice.

    I really thought this was a good machine and was happy using it until the first time the rubber gasket came loose, caught the blade and exploded juice everywhere. Ok, I assumed it was my fault, even though I had followed all assembly directions and been using it for a week. I bought another one and was very careful to baby it when assembling. 2 weeks later, same exact problem, gasket caught blade, cut in half, mess everywhere. I returned the system and won't buy another. They seem to have a major design flaw that needs addressing.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Nutribullet RX Gasket

    • Baltimore, Md.,
    • Sep 25, 2015

    The Nutribullet RX gasket has been modified to the point where there is no removable gasket so people shouldn't have to worry about the gasket getting chewed up by the blades anymore. So blast away and enjoy.

    Love my new Nutribullet!

    • Las Vegas, NV,
    • Sep 19, 2015

    Saw the infomercials for the soup feature and thought this would be great. I know what you're thinking, Las Vegas? Soup? It does get cold here and I love soup as it's comfort food to me. Made broccoli soup today to show my parents how it works (they have the original Nutribullet and love it for smoothies), and noticed the measurements from the recipe book are off. The amount of food they're saying to add, goes well over the MAX line on the cup so I will have to play with the ingredients and amount to add in the future. I added half an onion to the soup and 1 clove of garlic (my addition) and it was very overpowering. Since it's raw, it's going to be more potent. That was another issue, the "hot" feature for the soups, the commercial showed them making tomato soup. Fine and dandy because all the ingredients blend nicely. This one though, it said we had to steam the broccoli and potato and let them cool completely before adding to the soup pitcher to blend. Very deceiving considering the commercial plays as if the bullet cooks the food for you.

    On a side note, my father has heart disease and in the three years they've been using the Nutribullet for just smoothies, he has gotten off of 4 pills he took daily for his heart, blood sugar, etc. He's lost over 60lbs as well! For myself, I have avoided the flu and common colds for two years straight with my immune system being so high. I love this appliance.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

      I purchase the Nutribullet Rx and loved the product. However the gasket ring broke after three months and it's difficult getting Nutribullet on the phone to get it replace. Love the product, but very unhappy with their customer service. They should find a result for this problem.
