I used to be all the time a giant fan of our NutriBullet, till it lastly broke. It blended persistently properly, and it was extremely straightforward to wash the single-serving measurement container of our every day smoothies. Now the NutriBullet founder, Colin Sapire, has come out with a sequel product beneath a unique identify — The Beast B10 — that’s a particularly highly effective private blender which additionally appears to be like type of sleekly cool.
Blender specs won’t imply a lot to you, however that is armed with a mighty 1,000-watt motor, weighs 12 kilos, and stands practically 16 inches tall when the massive 1,000ml ribbed Tritan glass vessel attachment is on. It additionally comes with a 500ml vessel, which you should utilize for smaller drinks, salsa, chopping nuts, and so on.
Because the product instructions level out, the important thing to creating a creamy, blended smoothie is filling one-third of the vessel with a liquid. I believe the understated key to this product is the way it operates: You possibly can pulse the blade by urgent a releasing the ability button, or for those who maintain it down for one second, it routinely runs for one minute. However after each 20 seconds, it turns down the ability in order that the components you’ve put in can quiet down for a second. That’s tremendous essential as a result of then any solids nonetheless in there, comparable to spinach, kale or ice, can submerge extra into the liquid and mix extra simply because the motor revs us once more. I discovered time and again with The Beast that this intelligent function labored reliably. I additionally adopted the directions to place the liquid in first, earlier than including any solids. Plus, the machine is clever: It frequently screens the blade pace and makes fast changes to take care of constant pace and torque.
Consequently, The Beast liquified every thing I threw its manner — from leafy veggies to celery to frozen strawberries to apple and pineapple chunks. We personal a Vitamix — an expert grade blender which could be the priciest mannequin for properties — and this made what I believed was even smoother drinks. That could be as a result of The Beast’s vessels every have 12 ribs on the floor, to make the mixing course of extra turbulent — serving to create creamy smoothies.
Clear-up is a breeze, too. Simply rinse the blade and the vessel with cleaning soap and water, and allow them to dry. Or pop them within the dishwasher. Plus, the bottom is sturdy, with TPE for higher gripping on a counter.
The Beast additionally comes with drink lids, and you’ll order it with a hydration bottle that doubles as an infuser (The blender and hydration bottle mixture prices $168). By rapidly pulsing your components earlier than infusing, and slipping them down the hydration bottle’s center part, your water can be immersed with taste and vitamins. The corporate additionally affords a great deal of recipes for each mixing and infusing.
My go-to each morning after my exercise is banana, oatmeal, almond milk and peanut butter protein powder. And to be sincere, it’s been a ache to wash within the Vitamix as a result of the pitcher is simply so massive. And it’s plastic, which appears to look soiled, regardless of how completely we clear it. The Beast makes issues a lot simpler and faster. And it matches on the countertop with room to spare.
