I received a NutriBullet through a gift exchange several months ago. Prior to receiving the NutriBullet as a gift, I had never really thought about purchasing one. In fact, at the time I didn't have a blender, nor was I really in the market for one. However, since I now had one, naturally everything was worthy of going through the NutriBullet.
Which brings me to my first point. If you're silly enough to think this product will work on its own, revolutionize your diet and change your life, you're going to be disappointed. After all, it's a blender! You can put healthy stuff in it, or you can put Oreos in it, blend them up and pour them over ice cream.
Now that we have gotten passed the heartache of understanding that this is a cooking accessory and not a nutritionist, as a blender it works great! The biggest thing for me is that it's easy to clean. Cleaning blenders is notoriously annoying, it's typically difficult to clean them by hand, and putting them in the dishwasher is hit or miss from my experience. However, the fact that the NutriBullet comes apart, the pieces are easy to clean by hand, and putting them in the dishwasher seems to work pretty well depending on what you were blending.
Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
