The Magic Bullet replaces a food processor, blender, and coffee grinder, yet it occupies only the space of a coffee mug. It stays handy on your countertop for instant meals and snacks. 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 – in seconds, you’ll have chopped onions, minced garlic, grated cheese, spaghetti sauce, salsa, soup, chicken salad, smoothies, shakes and more. To heat or chill, simply place the magic bullet cup or mug in the microwave, refrigerator or freezer.

    Works well, but not for all foods I received my Magic Bullet set as a gift, after coveting it for quite some time(love that informercial!). After owning it and using it, I still love it, but I did have to adjust my expectations a bit.It works wonderfully for soft foods. It is great for making dips, sauces, marinades, salad dressings, tapenades… It is great for blending soft foods, for making emulsions, whipping cream… I have made great hummus in my Magic Bullet, as well as chicken salad. You get the idea.It also makes an EXCELLENT coffee grinder!What it does not do is work like a normal food processor, in that it cannot process harder foods. Raw vegetables are a no.

You cannot make a frozen drink with the Magic Bullet because all it does is throw the ice around in circles.So, If you want a real food processor, do not buy this one. If you want a light-weight and small processor that…

    A Great Little Blender According to the Amazon data base, I purchased the Magic Bullet in March. It is hard to believe that I’ve been using this blender at least twice every day since. I have used it primarily as a “frozen” drink maker–some would call them smoothies, I call them meal replacement drinks. I have also ground coffee beans to an espresso grind; made pesto, salad dressing, and use it to mix the wet ingredients for my seitan.What I have learned: the heavier ingredients need to go into the cup first and then the lighter ingredients, whatever they are. When making pesto, this means that the nuts go in first, followed by the cheese (especially if you are using a chunk of cheese as opposed to shredded) and then the basil. If you are using olive oil, it should actually go in last. The reason for the importance of the order is that the blade, while it is put on top of the cup, is actually the bottom of the blender. Putting the heavier ingredients into the cup first help insure smoother…
