Magic Bullet, "as seen on tv"

  • t

Has anyone tried the "Magic Bullet"? Thumbs up or down? I sort of liked the idea of having individual glasses to make smoothies/frozen drinks in.

  1. It is the perfect appliance for making protein drinks.

    I am not sure it would be great for guacamole, though.

    It should be good for smoothies, and yes, the individual cups are very convenient.

    1. I read a blog written by a fellow who just had gastric bypass surgery and therefore needs pureed foods for a while - he says "it works...barely. If I get a little healthier, I'll be able to stir faster than it can. Still, it's handy to have around. ... I don't recommend the machine for most kitchen uses but it serves my purpose."

          It's an overpriced blender hawked on late-night infomercials. According to their website, you get two of them for only 100 bucks... plus 40 dollars shipping and handling. For that kind of money, you could get yourself a Braun Multiquick stick blender which comes with plenty of attachments, and have money left over to go out for a nice dinner.
