Here we are with the most complete comparison of NutriBullet blenders models on the internet.
Yes, I know, a very bold statement but after using the three models compared for a few weeks I feel pretty confident that what I’ve put together is as good as it gets, if not better than anything out there.
Of course, there are new models on the market today and some of them might be a better choice for you specifically, but the 600, the 900 and the RX are still some of the best selling NutriBullet blenders and are still a solid choice for most people.
While the 600 is a bit of an entry-level model, the Pro 900 and the RX are a solid choice for anyone looking for a bit of an upscale blender with more bells and whistles. Which NutriBullet model to buy is completely up to you, of course, but making an informed choice and getting the most information possible about each blender is the sole purpose of this article.

As you can see from the comparison table above, the NutriBullet 600 is the most basic model of the series. While lacking container options and power, the 600W motor is more than adequate for basic kitchen needs. It won't chop ice like a professional blender for sure, but it'll make a decent smoothie or a veggie shake from relatively soft and mushy products. But, as always the case, you get what you pay for. The NutriBullet 600 price is low enough to make up for its shortcomings so if you need an entry-level home blender, the NutriBullet 600 has an above average qualities that will fit most budgets.
The NutriBullet Pro 900 is probably the golden ratio between size, productivity, price and blending ability. It offers more than an adequate power at 900W - sufficient for most blending and chopping tasks - even for more dense fruits and veggies. It has bigger containers and more blending power, although it has the same steel blades as the 600 above. It is a tad more expensive than the NutriBullet 600, but not too bade compared to the RX blender below. I'd say that the Pro 900 is the best NutriBullet to buy from the bunch.
The NutriBullet RX blender and juicer is a whole different beast. It has almost a professional grade power - a whooping 1700W. The blades's design is improved and stainless steel is used in the making. Not that the the 600 and the Pro 900 blades rust or anything, but the NutriBullet RX blade are made from proper stainless steel and they just seem better quality overall.
Also, the RX has two blending modes - soup and smoothie making - something that none of the other models possess. All that at a price that it is significantly higher than the rest. But more on that in the review below.
1. NutriBullet 600 - Best For Starters And Budget Households
The NutriBullet 600 is the ideal blender starter kit. Not as powerful as a high-end blender per se, but powerful enough to create delicious shakes and smoothies for the whole family. Given the small size and compact body, the 600 model can even be taken on holidays and trips if you indeed want to keep up with juicing and shakes.
The PROS of the NutriBullet 600W model are numerous. Before all, it makes a lot less noise than the bigger models. It might not sound like it on paper, but it is much more pleasant to use than the Pro 900 model, for example. The RX seems to have the same sound level as the 600, but the latter's noise seems more pleasant and muted compared to the RX. Another one would be the price it is much cheaper than both the Pro 900 and the RX, especially the RX.
The main CONS of the 600 is the low power and the absence of any specific accessories for anything besides basic blending of smoothies and shakes. It doesn't have enough power to use it to crush ice or any nuts for that matter either. Also, compared to the NutriBullet RX, it is nowhere as consistent as the latter. While the RX offer confidence in the results every time, the 600 is nowhere near there.
Overall the Nutri 600 is the least powerful and the least costly of the three models. I would only consider it if the other two are not an option or way outside your price range . It is a bit underpowered and it feels that way too.
It is great for making smoothies out of soft and mushy fruits and vegetables like bananas, for example, but for anything coarser and harder than that you will be far better off with the Nutri Bullet Pro 900. It is a far superior blender than the 600 and I much prefer it over the underpowered 600.
2. NutriBullet Pro 900 - Best NutriBullet For Most People
Weighing at 10.75 pounds and having a dimensions of 12x7.7x15.9 inches, the NutriBullet Pro 900W is a powerful machine that can fit well in most kitchens. The blender comes with a powerful 900-watt motor fitted with a unique, stainless steel extraction blade. It additionally combines the exclusive cyclonic action that quickly and easily breaks down as well as pulverizes all items put within.
The main PROS of the Pro 900 models vs the NutriBullet 600 above come from power and practicality. The 900 model comes with a much powerful motor than the 600 for a marginal increase in price. Also, it has larger containers as well - the biggest one is 32oz which should be plenty even for larger families. The NutriBullet Pro has no problem crushing reasonable amount of ice and harder fruits and veggies. While the 600 struggles to provide consistent results with anything harder than a banana, the 900 has no issues at all.
Also, the Pro comes with a different blade design compared to the 600. It incorporates a milling blade as well. It is perfect for spices, nuts and other dry ingredients without the need to change blades or add any liquids to the mix.
The main CONS of the PRO come mostly from the noise it generates. And let me tell ya - it is a quite significant annoyance. It is one of the loudest blenders on the market, although amongst the best out there too. If you can live with the noise it will perform much better than other blender in its category by a margin. Chopping veggies and crushing ice are not issue for the model whatsoever.
Overall, the 900 is the best price/performance ratio home blender for the money. There were some reports on ConsumerReports that the PRO 900 had issues with crushed ice, but evidently they have been resolved at some point since my model didn't have any issues. My margaritas were as good as it gets and pretty consistent too. Juicing is no issue either.
Also, the 900W model had some early reports of leaking during operation but those were quickly fixed by the company and the problem is currently long resolved.
The NutriBullet 900 is the recommended choice for the best NutriBullet blender to buy for many, many outlets, including the famous Wirecutter, BlenderAuthority.com and many more. I've been using mine for over an year now and it literally crushes everything that you throw at it.
While pretty loud, you can get a pretty consistent blend out of a non-professional blender, pretty much the best you can get from a consumer grade gear. It mills spices, blends smoothies and shakes with easy and confidence.
I really do feel that the 900 model is the top choice NutriBullet to buy - you really get a lot of value for money here and to be honest, the money are not that bad. Highly recommended after extensive personal use - it is one of my favorite kitchen gadgets to date.
3. NutriBullet RX - The Most Powerful On The Market
The NutriBullet RX is the high-end, flagship personal blender from the company. The RX motor is almost twice as powerful as the 900 model and almost three times as powerful as the NutriBullet 600. The price, however, is at a very similar ratio as well.
The main PROS of the NutriBullet RX is the insanely powerful motor at 1700W, the large set of containers and accessories and, of course, the built-in soup maker. Yes, you read that right - the RX has a soup-cooking mode where it can blend and cook a delicious soup for you - all automatically.
Also, the NutriBullet RX is bigger and sturdier than both the 600 and the 900 blenders. While the 900's container size tops up at 32oz, the RX comes with a cup as big as 45oz. That's almost 50% bigger than the 900. Let's not forget the dedicated soup container either.
Also, the RX is the only personal blender on the list the features BPA-free plastic containers. That might be due mostly to the soup heating function of the blender - to reduce the chance of harmful elements leaking into your food in the process. Juicing can be dangerous too with BPA present in the plastic bottles so it is always better to have a safety net when it comes to BPA.
The CONS of the RX, however, are on par with the pros, if not more. First we need to start with the higher price. The RX is significantly more expensive than both the 600 and the 900 blenders combined. Yes - you read that right. Unless you come upon some superb promotion or sale, for the price of the RX alone you can buy a 600 and a 900 NutriBullets together and even have some spare cash too.
Another cons is that the RX is a mostly automatic, hands-free blender. Kudos to you if you like that, but I couldn't bring myself to warm to the auto modes. They simply don't work most of the time or the results they offer are somewhat inadequate to the price. I much prefer to blend stuff manually and adjust the time as needed rather than count on an automatic cycle to that for me. But that's just me - I might be wrong, so don't take my word for it.
Also, the soup making function is somewhat useless in a plastic blender, in my opinion, again. I don't like making soup or heating liquids in plastic containers. EVER. Doesn't matter BPA-free or not, it is just not a good idea if you are conscious about your health.
Furthermore, the NutriBullet RX is a rather noisy blender. Although on paper is as loud as the 600, it sounds more whiny and pronounced. A bit more annoying too. Not as loud as the 900, but not really quieter either.
Overall, the RX is a capable device with a few shortcomings. It is more than strong enough to crush ice and blend kale, for example, but the automatic modes are all useless besides the autoblend. It is capable enough most, but I really feel that manual modes are more accurate and produce more consistent results than pre-defined cycles.
It is the flagship blender from Magic Bullet with the most powerful motor of them all, sitting at 1700W. That's as powerful as it gets, but I can's wholeheartedly recommend it over the the NutriBullet 900, not at the asking price at least.
Can I Interchange Accessories Between The Different NutriBullet Models?
Yes, both the cups and the blades are interchangeable between the NutriBullet 600 and Pro 900 and newer models. However, the 600 comes with a separate milling blade while the PRO doesn’t require it - is fitted with a Pro Extractor blade designed to be the best of both worlds. Vice versa, you can use the Pro extractor blade on the NutriBullet 600, but it might struggle with the larger cup sizes of the Pro 900 due to its underpowered motor.
The NutriBullet RX, on the other hand, can not exchange cups and blades with the 600 and the Pro models due to its larger size and diameter. The RX accessories fit only the RX models.
What's Similar Between the
NutriBullet 600, Pro 900 and the RX?
Lets first take a look at all the similarities between the three blenders. All the features that make them similar and make it harder to choose between them all:
1. Blending Operation
All three blenders are similar regarding design and adopt the same process of blending and milling in general. While the NutriBullet RX is mostly automatic and hands-free, the 600 and the 900 are all manual - blending requires you to hold a button to achieve the results needed.
Filling up the cup with ingredients is similar for the three models as well. See, with traditional blenders the blade is at the bottom of the container and you fill it from the top. With personal blenders, like the three models here, it is a bit different. You load the cup, then screw the blade on top of the cup and then flip the whole thing to place it on top of the motor. It feels a bit more insecure and fragile than traditional blenders, but NutriBullet models don't leak or drip - everything sits secure and tight. You can feel confident milling and blending liquids without spills with all three models, with the RX being the strongest of the three.
2. Blade Design And Capabilities
As you can see from the image above, the blades of the three blenders are quite similar, but also quite different too. More on that later, of course, as this paragraph is about the similarities between the three models.
The 600 and the Pro models blades are interchangeable, but quite different in design. As the picture above shows, the Pro 900 blades incorporates the best of the two blades of the 600 - the extractor and the milling blade.
The NutriBullet RX blade is a bit different. It can not be interchanged with the previous models as it is different in size - a bit larger than both. The RX doesn't have a dedicated milling blade, so it is not as effective as the previous two in milling spices and nuts, for example.
All three blenders can be versatile enough for most people, each in their own way. The Pro 900 edges out here due to its all-in-one blade that can do pretty much everything you throw at it with ease and confidence.
The 600 doesn't have enough power compared to the other two to be versatile enough here. The 900 is the best of both worlds while the RX struggles with milling spices and nuts. On the other hand, only the RX can make soup and has the function to do so.
You have to be well aware of what exactly you need your blender for to be able to decide what exactly suites YOUR needs best.
All three personal blenders are durable enough for everyday use. However, the higher the ladder you go, the more durable the model seems.
All three models have very similar maintenance schedule and all three are super easy to clean. All cups that comes with the blenders have wide enough openings to be cleaned by hand easily. Also, they are all dishwasher and microwave safe.
The blades, however, have to be cleaned and wiped by hand.
6. Safe And Reliable
All three models are leak proof and durable. I've been using my 900W model for well over two years and it still feels and operates as the day I got it.
All three models are spill and leak-proof, regardless of the early reports of some of them leaking. If the gaskets or the blade are starting to wear off, you can always replace them with spares, which are widely available everywhere for a fraction of the cost of a new unit.
So What are the Main differences?
Lets take a loot at the main differences between the three blenders.
1. Power And Motor
- The NutriBullet 600 features a 600W motor that is capable of rotating at 20.000RPM and delivering up to 0.8 horsepower.
- The NutriBullet Pro 900 features a 900W motor that is capable of rotating at 25.000RPM and delivering up to 1.2 horsepower.
- The NutriBullet RX features a 1700W motor that is capable of rotating at 30.000RPM and delivering up to 2.3 horsepower.
The golden rule here is the higher the power of the motor and the faster the blade rotates, the better and more consistent the blender will be.
High torque and horsepower allows the blender to get a better get-go from the start and crush and blend more denser ingredients easier.
The rotations per minute play role in the consistency of the smoothies blend. The faster the RPMs the finer the blend and more liquid too.
I would understand if some people are worried about the electricity consumption of the higher wattage, but blending usually takes seconds and rarely minutes so the electrical bill will be negligibly affected overall.
2. Volume And Capacity
Each home blender comes with a set of container with different max capacity. As you probably can guess, the gradation is very similar to the power of the motor, but they go as follows:
- The NutriBullet 600 has 18oz and 24oz containers.
- The NutriBullet Pro 900 has 24oz and 32oz containers.
- The NutriBullet RX has 30oz and the whooping 45oz containers.
As you can see above, the 600 is the smallest of the bunch, oriented towards single servings more than anything else. The 900 is sufficient for more than few servings while the RX can easily satisfy the needs of the whole family in a single blending session.
3. Kit And Accessories
Every Nutri Bullet kit is different and, as always, get better as you go up the price range. Let's see how they compare to each other and what are the differences in the accessories each NutrBullet ships with:
The NutriBullet 600 comes standard as a 12 piece kit that has the following accessories besides the 600W Power Base:
- Standard Extractor Blade
- Milling Blade
- 2x Resealable Lids
- 2x 18 Ounce Jars (One with handle, one without)
- 24oz Jar
- Lip Ring With Handle
- 2x Lip Rings Without Handle
- Pocket Nutritionist
- Recipe Book
The NutriBullet Pro 900 comes standard as a 13 piece kit that has the following accessories included besides the 900W Pro Power Base:
- Universal Extractor/Emulsifying Blade
- 2x 32oz Colossal Cups
- 2x Flip Top Lids
- 2x Handheld Lip Rings
- 2x Comfort Lip Rings
- Recipe Book
- Pocket Nutritionist Guide
- User Manual
The NutriBullet RX comes standard as a 10 piece kit that has the following accessories included besides the 1700W High Torque Power Base:
- Extractor Blade
- Soup Pitcher With 2 Piece Lid
- 30oz Short Cup + Comfort Lip Ring
- 45oz Oversized Cup
- Resealable Lid
- Soup Pitcher Lid
- Blade Remover Tool
- Recipe Book
- Blade Remover Tool
As you can see from the comparison above, the Pro 900 comes as the best NutriBullet kit - it is powerful enough to liquify almost anything and it is equipment with large enough set of containers and accessories to satisfy even the most demanding customers.
While prices can vary significantly during sales and seasonal promos, the rule of thumb is that you usually you get what you pay for, except for the case of the Pro 900 vs the RX.
While the 900 is definitely better than the 600 - more power, better blade, larger size, I'm not too sure that the RX is much better than the Pro 900, while significantly more expensive than the latter. As I said, prices can vary wildly, but I'd say the 900 is the ideal proportion of quality and performance versus price.
5. Controls - Manual VS Automatic
While both the 600 and the 900 are fully manual personal blenders, the RX is a fully automatic one, which can be quite annoying at times. It is much easier to achieve better results with manual blending rather than rely on pre-programmed functions to decide instead of the blend consistency and readiness of the mix.
The RX, however, has a very convenient, although automatic, soup making function. A small button on the front of the high-torque power base activates the built-in heater. It takes only seven minutes to heat the soup too.
6. Build Materials
While the plastic of the containers of the 600 and 900 seems fine enough for general use, I have to note that only the RX has a BPA-Free plastic containers. This is especially important for the soup blaster cup that is getting too hot for comfort when making hot beverages.
Final Words And Which One Is The Best To Buy
I really hope this comparison gave you a better idea about the similarities and differences between the NutriBullet 600, 900 and the RX models.
If I have to buy a new personal blender now, I would wholeheartedly recommend the Pro 900 model. It is the best of both worlds – much stronger than the 600 and better equipped than the RX, unless soup making is a priority for you, of course, you can’t beat that. If you’re after a portable blender, please see our comparison here.
The Pro 900 is the best NutriBullet kit as well – it seems that the container capacities and the included accessories in the set make the most sense to me of all three models.
Yes, I know there are several reports of leaking from the 900 model, but I couldn’t experience that in mine. Just make sure that whatever you blend, you always tighten the blade to the container and don’t force it too much on the power base unless tightly screwed.

It is indeed an upgrade. I just spent a day or two updating this article and let me tell ya – the 900 is much better product overall, even than the RX. Hope that helps!
