Comment:
Recipes are easy to follow, concoctions are tasty and filling. Worked well for about four months, then blade started to leak around the shaft. For warranty claim, had to go through multiple submissions, emails, and a phone call. Of course, the steps required to obtain replacement parts weren't spelled out all at once. Register here. Then an email indicating that the barcode was required. A subsequent request for proof of purchase (good luck if you didn't save a receipt). Then a phone call to customer service (20 minute wait).<br />To top all of that, after selling a defective product, irritating me with the consequential mess, and consuming my time to file a claim, I had to pay to have the replacement parts shipped! What a racket!
How long have you owned it:
Three-to-six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
I LOVE my nutribullet and would recommend it. The catch is if you buy any supplements upfront they will put you on auto ship and are not clear about it. They hide that fact in the blah blah blah they supposedly read to you. I am extremely careful and NEVER sign up for auto ship. <br />The supplements taste HORRIBLE and I threw them away. Then surprise, I got another shipment that they would NOT take back. So BUYER BEWARE!!!
How long have you owned it:
One-to-three months

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
