The first time I heard about the Magic Bullet was a couple of years ago trying to come up with some ideas for how to bring my smoothies to work. I was on the Discussing Nourishing Traditions list one of the list members suggested that I get the Magic Bullet. I remember not being so keen on the idea at first. I tend to be a frugal person and when I have something that is working perfectly fine (even though less convenient) why spend $50 on another blender, when the one I had was working perfectly fine?
As the months went by, I thought more about the Magic Bullet, checked into it and started to think it might be more convenient and make my life a little easier. The kit comes with several mixing cups and lids, perfect for blending up my smoothie, screwing a lid on and taking with me. So when my mother-in-law asked what we'd like for Christmas 2007, I told her we'd been thinking of getting a Magic Bullet.
As it turns out, I really love my Magic Bullet. I still have my “old” blender sitting on the counter, but I use the Magic Bullet almost daily and sometimes several times a day. I use it for blending scrambled eggs, making up a quick emergency batch of almond flour, smoothies, and just about anything for which I would have used the regular one.
It is simple for making a smoothie and bringing along with me to drink on the way to work. The little cups clean up easily and quick. The other day I was out of almond flour and wanted to make chicken nuggets for dinner (chicken breast cut into squares, dipped in scrambled egg, then dipped in almond flour) so I put a cup of almonds in the smallest cup, screwed on the flat blade and whirred the nuts right into flour. It is a little grainy, so probably wouldn't work real great for making bread items, but it worked perfect for breading the chicken nuggets.
The only thing I didn't like about my Magic Bullet is that the plastic fan blades that turn the blade inside the cup broke just a couple of months after the one year warranty had expired.
I didn't let that stop me from buying another one, I just find this little tool so handy in the kitchen, especially with all the cooking I have to do on GAPS. Now I have twice as many cups, twice as many lids, twice as many blades. I highly recommend the Magic Bullet.
