Magic Bullet MBR-1701 Good Points:
- Flexible:- One of the best things about the Magic Bullet Mixing Set is that it does much more than just make smoothies. As you can see from the huge list of product features above, it can be used to grind, grate and whip almost any type of food. This flexibility is very welcome and even if you do buy it just to make smoothies, you’ll find that once you own the Magic Bullet, you’ll be using it to make up cooking sauces, omelets and much more.
- Easy To Use:- As well as being flexible, the Mixing Set is also very easy to use. The small, medium and large cups that come with the blender allow you to quickly determine your portion sizes without doing too much measuring. In addition to this, the innovative shaker top and steamer top that come with the blender allow you to steam or sprinkle your blended concoction without having to remove it from the blender cup. These little touches are great time savers and make using the Magic Bullet a pleasure.
- Easy To Clean:- Another great thing about it is that it can be cleaned up in minutes. The blades can be completely removed from the blender and then cleaned in either the sink or dishwasher which means you don’t have to waste time wiping out around a fixed blade and struggling to access the hard to reach areas. The cups and lids are also very easy to clean and come out and can be rinsed clean in a few minutes or placed directly in the dishwasher.
- Compact:- One final benefit of it is that it’s very small and doesn’t take up much space. This is great news if you’re planning to leave the blender sitting out on the counter because it won’t get in the way and won’t clutter up your kitchen.
Not So Good Points:
- Struggles To Process Hard Foods:- One area where the MBR-1701 could perform better is processing harder foods, frozen foods and ice. While it doesn’t perform terribly in this area, it does take longer to deal with hard foods and doesn’t process them to the same standard as competing brands. Therefore, if hard foods make up the bulk of your blending and food processing requirements, this may not be the model for you.
- Limited Grinder Performance:- Another thing to consider before buying the Magic Bullet MBR-1701 is its grinder performance. The grinder that comes with the set is functional but if you’re expecting it to grind things to a super fine consistency, you’re going to be disappointed with the results.
If you want a blender that does it all, you’ll be very pleased with the Magic Bullet MBR-1701. It has plenty of different uses but despite its functionality, it’s so simple to operate. If you’re planning to do lots of grinding or process lots of hard foods, you may want to look at other blenders. However, if you’re planning to work with a range of foods, the Magic Bullet MBR-1701 17-Piece Express Mixing Set is a great buy.
