The Nutribullet Smart Touch Blender Combo is a proper countertop blending machine that can compete with leading brands like Vitamix, Blendtec, and Ninja.

We all know that Nutribullet started as a personal blender manufacturer. Now, they’ve come full circle as they embraced the whole blender market with this high-powered machine.

To be honest, I really like this product. It’s cheap, it’s beautiful, and at the same time, highly functional. Aside from its elegant aesthetics, it also offers not one but four convenient pre-programmed settings.

You can make smoothies, purees, soups, and frozen drinks with a simple touch. I’m not sure if we can categorize it as a smart blender, but it doesn’t disappoint when it comes to geeky features.

For now, let’s go over its advantages and disadvantages.

Nutribullet Blender Combo Features

Application

With a monstrous 1500-watt motor, it’s in the same league as any household blender by Vitamix and Blendtec. I can’t confirm the horsepower rating, but the Nutribullet Smart Touch blender is indeed a high-powered machine.

With that said, it’s capable of the following.


Smoothies
crushed ice
Crushed Ice
hot soup
Hot Soup
nut butter

baby food

salsa sauce
Sauces & Dips
salad dressing

The 64-ounce (1.89L) is vented, which means it can take on hot items like soup. Please note that it won’t heat puree on its own as the Nutribullet Rx does. You need to warm your ingredients first in a separate pot.

By the way, never use the smaller cups for processing hot food. It’s best suited for smoothies, milkshakes, and other cold or room temperature recipes. Blending hot ingredients with a closed container is an accident waiting to happen. That’s true to all compact blenders.

There are a few things the Nutribullet Smart Touch Blender Combo can’t do. It doesn’t have an accessory for milling flour and kneading dough. However, those capabilities aren’t essential. It’s more of an extra feature you’ll find from either Vitamix blenders or Blendtec machines.

Bonus: It comes with a recipe book (20 recipes), from Smoothies, smoothie bowls, soups, dips and sauces, cocktails, and “odds n ends.”

Ease of Use

Nutribullet Smart Touch Blender Controls

One major difference the Smart Touch Blender has over the Nutribullet Blender Combo is the touch controls. On top of that, it now features trendier quick-blend settings.

There’s a shortcut for making purees, soups, frozen drinks, and smoothies. With their older model, there’s just a button for “extract”, which doesn’t make a lot of sense. Now, it’s more descriptive.

With just a press of a button, you can make your favorite smoothie, soup, or any recipe in particular.

Should you decide to blend things your way, you can also control it manually. There are three-speed buttons, and there’s also a pulse switch at your disposal.

In addition, it also features the newer ergonomic twister blade for its single-serve cups. It’s easier to assemble and disassemble, plus it’s more comfortable to drink from.

Cleaning is also simple. Most of the parts are dishwasher safe (except for the twister blade). The large container and the cups can all go straight to your dishwasher.

All in all, the Nutribullet Smart Touch Blender is pretty much straightforward to operate and maintain.

Technology

Let’s get back to Nutribullet Smart Touch Blender Combo’s four intelligent presets for making purees, soups, frozen drinks, and smoothies. I just have to add that the digital timer will indicate the remaining time for each setting.

Apart from those walk-away blending programs, it also has an underlying technology that detects if a pitcher or lid is locked in place. If it’s not, the control panel won’t illuminate, nor will you be able to start the motor.

That’s a nice safety feature since we’re dealing with a 1500-watt machine.
