Comment:
I used the product 2 to 3 times per week. I didn't realize that the manufacturer recommends replacing the emulsifying unit for $13 every 6 months. If you don't, the seals wear out and the unit puts bearing grease into your drink. After about a year of light usage, I began getting a brown spray on the inside of the drive unit. The seal on the ball bearing was shot and drink and grease were mixing into the drink and out the bottom. Can you really be confident the emulsifier will last 6 months, or will you get a bad one and be eating grease early.

Comment:
I have spent lots of bananas in returning the nutribullet to Bed Bath and Beyond.The machine lacks lots of precise engineering.There is room for improvement.As it is today I am going bananas trying to engage the motor in. the switch is faultynningLeaks because the cups are flimsy too thin of material.However if you are lucky to have themotor running is wonderful
