Review Summary

This is the summary of consumer reviews for Magic Bullet MBR-1701 17-Piece Express Mixing Set. The BoolPool rating for this product is Good, with 3.80 stars, and the price range is $49.96-$56.14.

Magic Bullet MBR-1701 17-Piece Express Mixing Set is a versatile kitchen appliance. It is well-equipped to make smoothies, dips, salsa and baby foods. Add your favorite fruits to the short or tall cup and enjoy refreshing smoothies and shakes. You can drink from the same container you blend in, as the blending jar doubles as a travel cup. The see-through jars are convenient and can be used for storage. To heat or chill, simply place the magic bullet cup or mug in the microwave, refrigerator or freezer. The mixing set is stylish and compact and takes very less storage space. It is easy to use as there are no buttons to push. Just load the ingredients into the short cup, the tall cup or one of the four mugs. Twist on the cross or flat blade, place the bullet on the power base, and press down to make it work.

Many reviewers complain that this machine does not crush ice or frozen fruits easily and leaves chunks in smoothies. Also the chopping function does not work very well. The plastic drive mechanism is not durable.
