The Nutribullet Is the Kitchen Gadget You Won’t Regret Buying

This story is part of 84 Days of Holidaya collection that helps you find the perfect gift for anyone.

No matter how many TikTok recipes I try out, there’s one thing I make every single day without fail: a creamy blueberry and banana smoothie. I love the fact that I can whiz it up in my Nutribullet in a matter of a second along with a few handfuls of spinach, honey, oats, vanilla and cinnamon, along with a smattering of chia seeds that the sharp blades make light work of .

It’s why when I was asked to recommend a gift for the holiday season, this year the Nutribullet is my first and only choice.

Why it’s a great gift: For me, the big question when it comes to tech is: If it broke tomorrow, would you immediately rush out and buy a replacement? If the answer is yes, you know that the product is a winner.

I’ve been given other kitchen appliances in the past — an ill-fated spiralizer, a panini press, a slow cooker — and I suspected the Nutribullet would be another products that I’d use religiously for a couple of months before pushing it to the back of a cupboard. But I couldn’t have been more wrong. It’s been over two years since my brother-in-law gave it to me and my husband, and I’m shocked but happy to report I still use it on a daily basis.

A key reason for this is that, unlike many other specialist appliances I’ve used in the past, it’s easy to clean. After I’ve finished using it, I just pop some warm soapy water inside it, give it another blitz and it’s good to go again.

I’m aware that picking a product that’s known for being part of a healthy lifestyle makes me sound suspiciously virtuous — but don’t be fooled. I also use it to make delicious pestos and pasta sauces, and it’s even mixed a mean frozen margarita or two in its time.

I’m a big believer in choosing products for your home only if they make your life simpler and more fun, not buying things just for the sake of it. Even in a compact kitchen with limited counter space, I can guarantee that the Nutribullet meets this letter and then some.

What you’ll pay: The list price for the Nutribullet is $70, but you can find it on Amazon right now for $62.
