It is common to find households that have two blenders, a personal-sized blender, and another larger blender. A reason for this is to meet the self-serving needs of individual members of the house or meet the large quantity needs of the whole house as different occasions require. To eliminate the need for two different blenders in your home, the NutriBullet brand manufactured these models that can serve as a personal smoothie maker and still perform the duties of a standard countertop blender.
The NutriBullet combo blenders have two models, the ZNBF30500Z and ZNBF30400Z. These two can effortlessly switch between large tasks and speedy healthy drinks. The ZNBF30500Z has more accessories than the ZNBF30400Z, but they all have a generous capacity, and they come at a very affordable price.
- Assembled Product Weight: 10.33 pounds.
- Assembled Product Dimensions (L * W * H): 7.75*8.07*16.97 inches.
We already know that the NutriBullet Combo blenders are the kings of versatility, but how well can the blender perform the functions that it boasts of 1200 watts of power can take your blending game to another level, but what’s more is that the cups, pitchers, and blades are designed to work together for optimal nutrient extraction so that you not only have a super smooth mixture, you also have the most nutritious mixture too.
As a smoothie maker, these blenders perform excellently, think of all the hard ingredients you couldn’t add to your smoothies with the less powerful bullet blenders; well, it’s time to add them up. Your new NutriBullet combo would make sure you have them without having to chew so much on any bits. You can also have your smoothies as thick as you want now with these blenders, and they can pulverize nuts and seeds easily.
The power capacity makes it possible for these blenders to effortlessly process tough ingredients, therefore, making it suitable for a large number of heavy household tasks. These blenders are good with thick mixtures, so you can easily puree and even make hummus. These are just right for any food prep or chopping function. Easily whip up your homemade mayonnaise and butter in this blender and make sauces too. Surprisingly, we found that these blenders can also make hot soup. We can say that this blender is a whole lot in just one device.
The ZNBF30500z model has a more advanced control system than the initial one-speed setting and no pulse found in the other small personal blender models from NutriBullet. However, the controls are still limited to precision, and only some basic buttons you may need are available with just one blending program available too.
The control panel is a basic six-button control found at the front part of the base. The buttons available are for the main on/off power switch, low, mid, and high-speed settings, the extract blending program, and the pulse button. The pulse function can help you fine-tune your mixtures by adding a few rounds of blade rotation when you press the button just to make sure that no bits or chunks are present.
Motor and Blade
A powerful motor makes a powerful blender, and as we know now, the NutriBullet blenders have a powerful 1200 watts motor, a lot of power but still the right amount to make your blender run effortlessly and reduce any chances of breaking down from overworking it or any overheating while using it. You may still have to take breaks in between blending to ensure maximum protection of your blender.
The large pitcher comes with its sets of blades permanently attached to it. They are a set of 4-pronged stainless steel blades, blunt and thick but strong and durable. There is also another set of easy-twist extractor blades to screw on the to-go cups whenever you want to use them. The blades can achieve over 25000 RPM, and the speed produces enough friction to heat soup or any liquids.

Whatever this blender lacks in functionality, it makes up for it in accessories.

It will also come with two to-go lids, one of 32 oz. capacity and the other of 24 oz. capacity. They both come with to-go lids, one for each cup. There is also a tamper and easy twist extractor blades.
When you purchase the ZNBF30400Z, your set would include the 64 oz. pitcher, its seal lid and vented lid, and a tamper. Fortunately, the cups of the combo models are interchangeable, so you can separately purchase the self-serving cups to use them on here.
