I’ve owned a Magic Bullet for almost 4 years. I used it all the time for quite a long time, but now I’ve graduated to a full size blender because it is easier to make smoothies in for both the hubs and I. The bullet is nice for grinding spices and for making single serving protein shakes though.

A bulllet will not juice.  A bullet will mix the pulp in with the liquid.  A juicer removes the juice from the pulp.  So it depends on what you actually want the end product to be.

@Sunflower–girl:  This.

If you’re looking for an actual juicer I have the Breville Juice Fountain and I absolutely love it.  It’s easy to use and it’s pretty affordable (middle of the road, not super cheap or super expensive)

I have a NutriBullet – I use it all the time to make great, healthy smoothies, but it won’t really make juice.

@deetroitwhat:  Depends on what you will be doing or what your purpose is. A bullet will blend smoothies/drinks. A juicer will extract the liquids out of vegetables and fruits and leave the pulp behind. You also have the option of getting a Vitamix and just pulverizing everything; since most of the fiber and vitamins are located in the skins/pulps of the fruits and vegetables.

I agree with PP that the Bullet and a juicer are completely different. However, with that being said,  I just purchased the Bullet this week and absolutely love it so far. I would highly recommend the Bullet over a juicer because you will retain all of the fiber and ‘pulp’ of the fruits/vegetables you are using which is going to be a lot more beneficial to your body.
