NutriBoss is a small-sized personal blender from Emson, Inc. that claims it instantly liquefies fruits and veggies for nutritious shakes. They tout NutriBoss is designed with 2 serrated edges for chopping and 4 razor sharp edges to slice and you can drink your concoction right out of the cup.
The NutriBoss Pitch
NutriBoss touts you can create heart healthy shakes right in your own kitchen and say it comes with a guide that has recipes to boost energy, reduce inflammation, or detoxify your body. They also promise you can make the most delicious nut butter you’ve ever tasted by using NutriBoss to pulverize almonds, pecans, and more.
However, it should be noted that depending on what you put in your NutriBoss will determine how healthy your shake is – if you fill it with ice cream or load it up with sugar, you’re not going to get the same benefits.
How NutriBoss Works
They don’t list the size or the wattage of NutriBoss, but essentially it seems to be a small pulse-activated countertop blender whose blending cups also double as drinking cups. To use NutriBoss, they instruct you to fill it with your favorite fruits and/or veggies (it probably won’t work with meat or fish) and turn it on. In seconds, they promise whatever is inside will be liquefied. Then pop it off the base, remove the cap and drink it right from the cup. Mmmm!
$59.85, which includes the NutriBoss base, 3 large cups with rims and lids (size unknown) 2 sealable lids, 2 specialty lids, and a recipe book. This amount can be paid at once or broken up into 3 payments of $19.95 and includes free shipping.
NutriBoss comes with a 90-day money back guarantee, minus what it costs you to ship back to them. Warranty information was unavailable.
Bottom Line: Is NutriBoss a Good Blender?
In case you haven’t noticed, there are a LOT of blenders in the marketplace of different sizes, speeds, makes and models that are priced from $50 or less to thousands. We appreciate NutriBoss’ relatively low cost, free shipping, and 90-day money back guarantee but there are a few questions we have. Namely, how many watts is it, what are the size of the cups, and what is the warranty? We asked a customer service representative and they promised they’d get back to us. (We’re still waiting.)
Consumer Reports tried to make sense of all the different blender options in the marketplace and found that wattage may not necessarily be a factor. As far as personal cup type blenders, they recommended the NutriNinja Pro, which it said was powerful and durable. While it also has the “Nutri” in its name, it is sold by a different company. (Since NutiBoss is so new, it’s likely it wasn’t included it its tests.)
When shopping for a blender, you might want to consider your budget and not go for one with a lot of bells and whistles, especially if you are simply blending bananas or other soft items. And if you have a blender collecting dust in the cupboard already, why not just give it a try and see if it still does the trick?
It’s also important to keep in mind that drinking too many fruit-based smoothies may spike your blood sugar to unhealthy levels. According to an article in Men’s Health, blending fruits decreases your ability to process that sugar and some nutritionists recommend eating whole fruits and veggies because of this. In other words, drinking a smoothie may be a more delicious way to get your daily requirements, but don’t rely on them too much. Eat them raw or lightly cooked: you’ll feel more full and get more of the fiber your body needs.
