This product gets a good score from me, for sure! I've used the Magic Bullet countless times and have owned it for more than 2 years. I've made plenty of pasta sauce, individual meal helpings and my biggest use was making my own baby food. With my first son I owned a gigantic food processor. I had begged my husband to let me buy this gadget after being enticed with all of those peppy informercials. At Christmas, his parents got me one. I couldn't wait to begin using it!
I boiled vegetables and fruits galore and would throw them in the Magic Bullet and in less than 3 minutes my baby was ready to eat. The cleanup was easy since it was just the rinse of a cup and the lid with a blade. This is much better than trying to clean out your blender and getting your hand or cloth down in the bottom and up under the blade. What a mess!
The only downfall of this product is that it doesn't work exactly how the infomercial says. Making smoothies and things like that you have to add ice and this machine does not like blending ice. Many of the things you put in to blend you can only put a scoop or so in and have to add water or else it begins dry blending and sounds awful.
