The Nutribullet 1200Watt Blender Combo
is the newest NutriBullet model released. It is a combo blender that comes with a large 64oz blender jug, but also two to-go smoothie cups similar to the original bullet blenders. This blender will save counter space as now there is no need to buy a second bullet blender. Its great for on the go blending with the two to-go cups with leak proof lids. They paid attention to detail when designing the togo cups. One cup comes with a handle and the lid has a  spout that clicks to stay open. In general I love this blender. I've been able to blend hard leaves, large pieces of carrots, seeds, beets and ice with no issue. There are 4 blender settings extract which I use for smoothies, pulse, high, and low. Check out my complete blender unboxing, review, and demo on youtube. The blender is also less noisy than my past blenders and has strong suction cups at the base so it doesn't move one inch when blending. You don't even have to hold the blender.

Con: my only complaint is that the attachments pieces are different shapes than the old NutriBullet. If you previously owned a regular NutriBullet  none of those cups will fit this blender. Its not that big a deal tough as this blender came with two extra cups.



Vitamix a2500


Cost: $599 + $29 for additional to-go smoothie cup

So this is essentially a smart blender with wireless connectivity and app with numerous recipes and blender settings. I'm not sure if the idea of a smart blender is necessary, its more work to figure out what setting to use then your ordinary blender. This blender also does not come with any to-go cups, however it is apart of Vitamix "Ascent" series which offer the ability to buy to-go cups for smoothies. The older Vitamix blenders do not have this ability. This blender works extremely well and is very versatile, however when using the smoothie cup it comes up short. So yes this is a great blender with great power to deliver smoothly blended products, but should you spend your hard earned money on it?

Con: Extremely expensive and poor blending with smoothie cups.

The Verdict
Honestly if you are not a chef, or small business owner requiring blending all the time, I don't think you need to get a Vitamix. You can save yourself close to $400 or more and get the NutriBullet Combo that has nearly the same watts of power as this Vitamix and better functionality using the smoothie cups.
