Excellent customer service

Don't Run Over 1 Minute
Best Uses
Excellent Nutri Drinks
Extremely easy to use and clean. Excellent customer service. My nutri bullet stopped working because I ran it over a minute and probably didn't have enough water in it. Unfortunately I didn't realize this until I researched it. I called customer service and they walked me thru removing the build up around the edge of the power base. That was fixed, but it still didn't work, so they are replacing the base unit. I couldn't be happier. AND I will be much more careful with the amount of water I add and Will not run it over a minute at a time.
