To heat or chill, simply place the Magic Bullet cup or mug in the microwave, refrigerator or freezer.We make our smoothies and our margaritas using the bullet and they are absolutely awesome tasting.

What it claims to do: The Magic Bullet claims to be "the personal, versatile, counter-top magician", able to do for far more than just make personal smoothies. In fact, they claim that the Magic Bullet is so useful and convenient, you'll want to use it every day.

What we found: The Magic Bullet does an excellent job of whipping. Normally I wouldn't take out my blender for preparing eggs for an omelet, but since this is so small and easy to keep out and clean, I used it. The Magic Bullet did an excellent job of fluffing my eggs.

Blending was a little more iffy. It did well for a small smoothie. When I packed in the ice and fruit though, the stuff on top didn't get properly blended. The manual recommends what they call a .pulse and shake., which means picking up the Bullet and shake it in between blender pulses. That worked, but they forgot to mention that in the infomercial.

Chopping was ugly. I either ended up with unchopped pieces of onions and garlic or an onion and garlic paste. Chopping by hand does a far better job. I don't use it much for chopping, unless I'm make my doggie treats

Don't expect to be able to leave the knives in the drawer. The small footprint of the Magic Bullet is excellent for reducing your kitchen clutter. The downside is that it can't handle full onions or tomatoes. In the infomercial they use cherry tomatoes and pearl onions. In reality you'll have to quarter your tomatoes and onions before throwing them in.

The small size also means that if you're preparing a large dish, using a food processor or blender would be far easier.

The Magic Bullet includes a set of mug-shaped blending cups so that you can blend and drink in the same utensil. This makes it fun at social gatherings and less to clean up afterwards.

Two blades are included, one for chopping/blending, and one for mixing/grinding. Using the wrong one will make your recipe come out wrong.

The Bottom Line: The bullet is very useful and convenient for making whipping items like eggs and for making smoothies in small quantities. It is easy to store and easy to clean. We did not find it useful for chopping items like onion and garlic, and the cups are pretty small. Still, if it fits your needs, its quick and easy.

The Bullet is a the item to purchase. The bullet is a great addition to your kitchen ware. You won't be disappointed, but also remember that it's not perfect and can not do everything, so be patient with you bullet and have fun with it, use your imagination and try different foods in it. We have had our Magic Bullet for about 7yrs now and absolutely believe in this product 100%. In fact, We are going to have to purchase a new Blender soon because we have almost worn out our blender.

Right now you can purchase The Bullet for $99.00 or 3 easy pmts. go to www.buythebullet.com If you go to Walmart or Sears you will find it there also, but you may not get all 21 pieces that buying online has to offer. So read and compare before buying.

Oh and I wanted to mention that the holidays are slowing creaping up on us and The Magic Bullet makes a great present for someone.
