If you are looking for a powerful blender that blends smoothies as well as makes hot soup, but are unwilling to invest a few hundred dollars in an expensive blender like Vitamix, you will be impressed with what the NutriBullet RX can do at a fraction of the cost.
Let me help you decide if the Nutribullet RX is worth your time and money.
Nutribullet RX was specifically created by a team of Engineers, Nutritionists and Doctors with nutrition in mind. It is designed for users who want to transform their health without limitations.
The NutriBullet RX juicer comes with a powerful 1700 watts (2.3 Horse Power) motor and the extractor blades turn at 30,000 RPM. What this means is that you can make healthy smoothies with this machine very quickly, and smoothly.
This machine is the world’s most powerful nutrient extractor. It features a hands-free SMART Technology and is very easy to use. This Nutribullet model also features a heat cycle for soups and sauces.
The main features that sets this model apart from the other Nutribullet models is its SMART Technology and its ability to create hot soups.
Nutribullet RX-How it works
This Nutribullet juicer is simple and easy to operate. There is only one power on and off button and “G” button. The Nutribullet RX will start blending as soon as you put the cup into the base.
To use the Nutriblast function, add your ingredients to the cup. Pour in liquid up to the MAX line and place the cup onto the power base and press the button. The SMART Technology takes over here and blends the ingredients for you.
How the SMART Technology works is that it will blend at exactly the right speed every time and slow down at the right time for maximum nutrition extraction. It will stop automatically when the smoothie is ready in about 1 minute. Twist the cup off the blade and enjoy your nutritious delicious drink.
Creates Soup in 7 Minutes
You don’t need to spend hundreds of dollars on the high-end blenders like Vitamix to create delicious hot soups in a blender. You will love how this machine makes hot nutritious and delicious hot soups for the whole family in 7 minutes! (They call it “souperblast”:)
This new feature is a significant improvement from the Nutribullet 600 and 900 juicers.
To use the Souperblast function, just twist the extractor blade onto the Souperblast 45 oz pitcher (not the jars).
Add your ingredients and liquid to the pitcher (your purchase includes many recipes you can use).
Attach the vented lid cover to Souperblast pitcher.
Next, secure the pitcher onto the power base and the hands-free SMART Technology will start automatically. You will know the power is on when you see the” G button” turn green.
Activate the 7 minutes heating cycle by pressing the G-button until it turns RED. When it turns RED, the “Souperblast” mode has begun and will blast for about 7 minutes, and then stop automatically. You can now enjoy your hot, piping, healthy soup!
Let’s see the Nutribullet RX in action:
Nutribullet RX cups
This machine comes with 3 sized cups: 1x 30-oz Short Cup, 1 x 45-oz Oversized Cup, and 1 x 1 litre Souperblast pitcher.
The Oversized cup is ideal for multiple servings and will make 1 quart and 8 ounce glass of smoothie. You can make enough delicious smoothie for the whole family to enjoy
The smaller 30 oz Cup comes with a handle, is great for single serving and is ideal as a blend-to-go cup.
The stay fresh lid will keep your smoothies fresh so you can keep and consume your smoothie later.
You can enjoy delicious hot soups in the Souperblast pitcher with the 7 Minute Heating Cycle in only 7 minutes. The pitcher comes with a spout that makes it easy to pour out the soup with no mess.
Cleaning Nutribullet RX
Unlike most other juicers and blenders, cleaning the Nutribullet juicer is extremely easy.
Many positive reviews on the Nutribullet RX are about how easy it is to clean this machine. Simply rinse the blades under the tap and place the cups in the dishwasher. Wipe the power base with a damp cloth and make sure the power base doesn’t come into contact with liquid as it has electrical parts.

When you buy the Nutribullet RX, you will also get “Nature’s Prescriptive Book” which contains over 150 pages of information and recipes which you can use to customize the NutriBlast Rx and SouperBlast to your individual needs.

Like the other Nutribullet juicers this machine comes with a 1 year limited warranty. If you feel this is too short, you have the option to buy the extended warranty for an extra 4 years in addition to the 1 year warranty.
Nutribullet Rx Noise Level
It comes as no surprise that the 1700 watt motor is quite loud, but this is quite typical of a high powered motors. This is not really a big issue unless you use it when other family members are sleeping. If you are looking for a quiet blender, this blender may not be the right for you.
You have probably read about the Nutribullet RX having leaking issues. After doing some research, I discovered that you should not encounter this issue if you follow the instructions provided in the manual.
You are also supposed to use the wrench when attaching and removing the blade assembly. Some customers say that removing the blade unit with the wrench helps to keep the seal in place, and hence, prevents leaking.
There are also concerns about the Nutribullet RX having gasket problems. This is often caused by users removing the gasket from the blade, (which they are advised against doing in the Manual) hence, loosening the gaskets, causing leaking.
What Customers Say
Many users are impressed with the powerful motor that makes really smooth smoothies, with no lumps, bumps or other surprises.
Other customers said they found it easy and quick to use, and -they can blend, drink and pack their smoothies and clean up within 5 minutes.
Some users even commented that they found the Nutribullet RX as efficient as their expensive blenders, and even more convenient to use.
Some customers complained about the leaking and gasket issues. But this should not happen if you follow the instructions in the Manual.

Whether you need this machine or not is another issue. If you are likely to use this bullet blender daily, you are sure to enjoy the powerful motor as it will help you make healthy delicious meals quickly. On the other hand, if you are not likely to use it often, you may be content to buy the lower powered 600 watts or 900 watts which cost about half the price of the RX.
The RX caters for busy people who enjoy a premium product and have deeper pockets; highly value their time and like making soups quickly with the heat cycle technology.
If you are already a Nutribullet user looking for an upgrade, this may be a good choice as you will appreciate the Smart Technology and SouperBlast.
