About

The NutriBullet Personal NBR-12 is part of the Blender test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, Blender models like the Personal NBR-12 are rated on multiple criteria, such as those listed below.

Predicted reliability: <p>Predicted reliability icons are based on estimated breakage rates for newly purchased blenders, not under service contract, within the first four years of ownership.</p>

Owner satisfaction: <p>Owner satisfaction icons are based on the proportion of members who are extremely likely to recommend their blender to their friends and family.</p>

Icy drinks (Smoothies): Smoothness and thickness of non-alcoholic pina coladas are determined using assorted size sieves. Blenders that do well for icy drinks also do well for smoothies.

Predicted Reliability

Results in the following chart are gathered from Consumer Reports’ 2018 Summer Survey of 4,798 personal blenders, owned by members who purchased a new machine between 2008 and 2018.

Our predicted reliability ratings are based on a statistical model that estimates breakage rates within the first 4 years of ownership, for blenders that are not covered by an extended warranty or service contract. We also adjust for the median frequency of use per month. The median number of days blenders are used is 2 to 3 days per month. Higher ratings are indicative of better reliability. Brands receiving a red or orange rating cannot be recommended by CR at this time.
