One step up from the original NutriBullet (600) blender, the NutriBullet Pro 900 is equipped with more power and larger capacity cups than its original counterpart. The results have kept users happy giving them excellently blended smoothies, perfect purees, frosty iced drinks and shakes along with nut butter, cold dips, and sauces.
Going by blender standards, these functions are pretty impressive as some of them even foray into the food processing arena. However, since most NutriBullet models are capable of doing all this and even some more, why does the NutriBullet Pro 900 stand out?
This is the question I am here to answer. The popularity of the NutriBullet Pro 900 has stood the test of time well despite launching newer and more advanced models. Today’s in-depth review of this popular model will tell you exactly what you can hope to get with The NutriBullet 900 Pro.
NutriBullet Pro 900 Review: Overview
The NutriBullet Pro 900 is a compact machine that has a small footprint. This makes it popular among users with limited space in the kitchen or others who want to take it with them when traveling.
It’s also an ideal fit for people who are short on time. The blender quickly pulverizes ingredients including leafy greens without leaving any awkward lumps or chunks. If you want to prepare sauces or dressings, then the Pro 900 can help you with that too.
The Pro 900 is really easy to operate given the absence of any pre-set functions, buttons or dials. All you do is put your ingredients into the blender cup making sure to never go beyond the MAX FILL line. Simply screw the blade assembly onto the cup and click into place in the unit’s base.
Press down on the cup to start blending and stop when you reach the desired consistency. For the pulse function just press and release the cup alternately.
Even though the Pro 900 can blend, mix, chop, puree and perform a number of other functions, the working mechanism remains the same. What will vary, however, is the duration of the blending.
For instance, if you want to prepare a protein shake, you will need to hold the blender cup down for 8-10 seconds only. But if you wish to grind coffee beans instead, you’ll need to work with a few 10-second bursts with a pause in between to get a good grind.
For longer blending tasks, do not run the motor continuously for more than one minute at a time as this can present overheating issues.
Cups and Attachments
The Pro 900 features 2 cup sizes including a large 32-ounce cup and a 24-ounce cup. This can vary based on the package you get with some versions of the Pro 900 such as the 9-piece set including one 24-oz and one 32-oz cup. The 13-piece set is shipped with two 32-oz cups whereas the 15-piece set includes one 32-oz and two 24-oz cups.
But no matter which package you get, the good thing is that the cup mouths share the same circumference which makes it super easy to screw any lid onto any cup.

The cups with the Pro 900 are nicely sized to allow preparing individual or multiple servings of smoothies. The 32-ounce container, in particular, works very well to allow adequate cycling of tightly packed ingredients and blending everything thoroughly. This gives you the result of getting silkily blended smoothies with no unwanted chunks.
Also included is one set of 6-pronged blades and different lids for taking your smoothie along. All pieces fit well together along with the blade attachment. In true bullet blender style, the blade attachment serves as a lid to the containers when in use.
All parts of the NutriBullet Pro 900 are dishwasher safe with the exception of the blade assembly and the base. To clean the blade assembly, it is recommended to rinse the blade or wash with warm water and mild soap and brush immediately after use. This practice prevents the buildup of food residue around the blade and preserves its integrity.
The base should be wiped clean with a damp cloth.
The NutriBullet Line
The Pro 900 falls earlier on in the NutriBullet line with only the original NutriBullet preceding it. Other models like the NutriBullet Prime, NutriBullet Balance, NutriBullet Rx, NutriBullet Max, NutriBullet Lean, and NutriBullet Select were all launched afterward.
Each model presents its own set of pros and cons and serves specific needs. The later models all have more powerful motors ranging between 1000 and 1700 watts with some as the Balance holding the charm of technology that comes with it.
And of course, with higher motor power and more bells and whistles, the price tag on the product also expands. These models are more suited for individuals looking for specialized blending functions or for extras such as healthy eating guides and apps to sync with their devices.
However, most people in the blender market look for an easy-to-use appliance that will quickly whip up a smoothie for them as they run out the door. This is where the Pro 900 wins given its ease-of-use and lack of additional features. Users like its simplicity and functionality that is just the right balance to deliver the daily goodness of smoothies without breaking the bank.
NutriBullet Pro 900 Review: Final Thoughts
The NutriBullet Pro 900 is a versatile machine, that handles most ingredients well. Powered by its 900-watt motor paired with a reasonable price tag, you get really good value for your money.
This is a personal blender that lives up nicely to its reputation. For a modest price tag, the Pro 900 blends smoothies just as well as the more expensive models. It yields the right amount of motor power paired with a bunch of handy accessories and backs its performance with a one-year warranty.
The 900 also wins in delivering a compact-sized unit whereas some of the later models are considerably larger.
In the end, it is the best price-to-performance ratio among the NutriBullet line that makes the Pro 900 a personal favorite among users.
