nutribullet 1200 Series
Frequently Asked Questions
How do I care for my nutribullet?
We recommend washing the blade by hand with warm soapy water immediately after use. You can use a nylon brush to reach hard to reach areas. The blade and motor base are not dishwasher safe. The cups and other accessories are dishwasher safe. When cleaning the motor base, unplug from the socket and wipe clean with a warm soapy cloth.
Does the liquid level always have to be to the MAX line?
The liquid level does not need to be at the MAX line. Ensure you never fill over the MAX line.
Can I use ice or frozen fruits in the nutribullet?
We recommend using frozen fruits such as berries, bananas or mango to make the smoothies cold. If you do use ice, do not exceed 25% of your total ingredients.
We suggest smaller cubes or crushed such as those from the refrigerator ice maker so that it disperses thoroughly in the smoothie. Also chilled liquid such as spring water, herbal or ginger teas, almond milk can help to make the smoothie cold without over watering.
Why am I having difficulty removing my blade after blending?
Blending creates pressure inside the cup to break down ingredients. Make sure not to fill above the MAX line. The longer your blend cycle is on, the more pressure is building inside the cup. An alternative is pulse blending in shorter cycles.
What ingredients should not be blended inside a nutribullet?
Never blend heated or carbonated ingredients, this could cause the cup to pressurize and leak causing damage or injury.

What are the differences between a “smoothie” and a “juice”?
A smoothie is a blended beverage made with solid and liquid ingredients: fruits and vegetables, nuts, seeds, water, milk, etc. Smoothies are blended using a NutriBullet or traditional blender, and the finished product retains all of the material (skins, pulp, and fiber etc) of their whole food ingredients.
Juice is made by extracting nutrient-rich liquid from whole fruits and vegetables. Juicers separate the solid components of fresh produce (pulp, skin, fiber, etc) from their liquid content, which is then filtered through a spout and into a glass or pitcher for drinking. While juices do not contain fiber, they’re great for a quick pick-me-up, and can help to add an extra boost of fruit and veggie goodness to your day. Fresh juices and smoothies can be great additions to a healthy, active lifestyle.
