NutriBullet RX Reviews
The 70% of the complaints that we received from Nutribullet RX users are about the faulty gasket and the consequent leakages in the base. The other complaints are mostly about the Nutribullet being too loud, burning smell and taste of the soup and smoothies, Nutribullet RX smoking, strong plastic smell, cheap plastic cups and more.
Nutribullet RX Gasket Problem and Leakage
Steve McAllen who bought the Nutribullet RX extractor on 2nd Jan 2015 , says in his Nutribullet RX review that the machine is not worth $200. He mentions in his review that the extractor does a decent job at liquefying everything thrown into it, including raspberry and blueberry, but the overall quality of the blender is horrible. He complains in his review that the Nutribullet RX extractor falls apart after a few months of use. The gasket does not stay in place and the Nutribullet blades would ultimately eat the gasket and it would get twisted around the blade assembly. Steve says he does recommend the machine unless they find a solution to he gasket problem.
Bryan who bought the Nutribullet RX blender in the first week of Jan 2015 too complains that the gasket popped out after mere 3 uses. He was using the tool to tighten/ loosen the blade. As far as operation, yes the machine works well and does make great smoothies but it is a little loud.
Bretty’s Nutribullet Rx blender arrived on 3rd Jan 2015. She says it’s a great extractor and she is impressed by the performance. She too complains about the rubber gasket in the blade assembly not staying in place when blending. The gasket has actually become wrapped around the blade when blending and causing leakage.
Paige exposes the Nutribullet RX truth in her review. She bought the Nutribullet RX from Amazon.com on January 5th 2015 and after using it just twice the problems sprung up, while using the Nutribullet RX for the second time the rubber gasket inside the blade dislodged and was cut by the blade, rendering it unusable. The worst part is Nutribullet does not sell just the rubber gasket separately and you have to buy the entire blade assembly. She is concerned that the same gasket problem may occur with the new blades too.
Nutribullet Rx is Loud
Brandon in his Nutribullet review complains of the Nutribullet RX extractor being too LOUD. He tried the regular cycle, and found it to be very LOUD, like a jet plane. The cycle is just about a minute, but seemed much longer and he couldn’t stand it. He had bought the Nutribullet RX in the first week of Jan 2015.
Susan too complains about Nutribullet RX being just too loud, she filled the soup pitcher, and tried the soup cycle just once and swears to not try it again. 7 minutes of that noise is not possible to stand, she says in her Nutribullet RX review. She suggests making the soup in a cup, and use the microwave.
Patricia says the Nutribullet RX sounds like a jet plane in her kitchen. She thinks it is no better than the old Nutribullet 900 watt unit. Patricia returned the Rx blender.
Smoking Nutribullet RX
Damien bought the Nutribullet RX in late Nov 2014. He mentions in his review that the extractor worked great for a month and then the Nutribullet RX problems began to arise. The NB RX started to smoke and began to emit a very strong burning smell. Damien mentions in his Nutribullet RX review that he requested for a refund but the 30 day return policy was already over and he was stuck with a smoking Nutribullet RX blender. Damien further says that he found several other reviews mentioning of similar smoking problem with the blender IF the pitcher is loaded past the line OR if there is not enough liquid in the pitcher. Damien says that the Nutribullet RX was smoking despite any of these reasons.
Strong Plastic Smell
Barmer bought the Nutribullet RX blender in the first week of Jan 2015 and he loved the concept of the RX especially the big containers and the performance of the blender. BUT he was disappointed to find that the containers had a very strong smell of plastic. Barmer mentions in his Nutribullet RX review that it was quite possible that the high-speed, high-temperature blending possibly leached plastic into the smoothies in the blender.
Chelsie too had similar issues. She bought the Nutribullet RX in 2015 from Bath Bed and Beyond & she also has Nutribullet 600 and 900 but neither has a strong plastic smell like the RX blender. She returned it back to Bed, Bath and Beyond for a refund. She thinks the plastic used in the Nutribullet RX containers is of cheaper quality than other Nutribullet blenders.
Warm Smoothies and Burn Smell
Shane has been using the Nutribullet RX blender for over a month, he too like Barmer and Chelsie has problems with the taste and smell of the soup. Shane says in his Nutribullet RX review that the soup has a burn smell which may perhaps be caused due to hi speed blending. He says he does not like to drink the warm vegetable blasts. He has used the Nutribullet 900 model which delivers the same results but does not make food warm. He further mentions perhaps adding ice would resolve the issue.
