We bought it at Wal-Mart for $99 (They do offer an extended warranty for $9 in case anything breaks down the road). It does come with a small recipe book but I just let the kids throw whatever they want in there (anything to get them to eat better!) Hubby and I have tried the recipes though.
I'm on my 4th day of using my Nutribullet and I know it may sound really crazy but I actually feel better. It helps regulate things too. I'm a horrible sleeper and for the past 2 nights, I've actually really gotten some much needed sleep.
I did a little experiment with my blender and the Nutribullet to see the difference. Holy cow! There was so much left in chunks in the blender and the nutribullet pulverized everything. With the Nutribullet, I can leave the skin on the apples (have to core it first though) and I didn't even half to peel the orange (just cut it into 4's), so you get all the nutritional benefits of the whole fruit. I did peel the bananas though and froze them so the drink would be cold.
The kids really like to use juice instead of water. They've used orange juice, pineapple juice and even pear juice.
I should mention that I'm a real cheapskate and this is the 1st big purchase that I have made but to me, the benefits of the whole family actually eating healthy for once (and not complaining about it) offset the price it costs.
