The overall design of the BELLA is functional, but not particularly eye-catching so we’re not fans of neither its styling nor quality. Nevertheless, considering its affordability, along with a suit of practical accessories, we agree this blender is still a good value for money.
The NutriBullet Pro is not revolutionary, but we love its simplicity and sturdiness. It delivers decent quality at an affordable price so you can blend with peace of mind for years. It also comes with several handy features that may interest you.
The BELLA remains one of the most user-friendly personal blenders on the market due to its simple operation, straightforward assembly, and hassle-free cleaning process. The lack of pulse function may make it tricky to create chunky textures, but we believe it won’t take much time to find the way
The NutriBullet Pro perfectly fits our definition of a blender with good usability. Its straightforward working mechanism is a breeze to learn and use. It is also among the simplest to clean and assemble. So far, we don’t have any complaints about this little workhorse.
The BELLA is finely capable of preparing protein shakes and frozen fruit smoothies, but comes up short in liquifying leafy greens and pulverizing ice cues. For those that can make such compromises, this blender is the easy choice considering its price and the long list of extra accessories. Otherwise, we suggest considering the KOIOS Pro, which is similarly priced but offers more advanced capabilities.
The NutriBullet Pro sports a 900-watt motor. It is more powerful than most personal blenders, passing all of our tests with outstanding results. Given its impressive testing performance, we’re confident that hardly anything will offer this blender a challenge. It will be your quick and convenient way to transform any whole foods into nutrient-dense treats.
Pros & Cons

- The motor is less likely to overheat like some of its rivals.
- It’s pretty good at processing frozen fruits and raw nuts.
- Its ease of use provides a satisfying blending experience.
- It is very easy to assemble and use.
- Stainless steel extractor blades are tough enough to power through even solid ingredients like ice cubes.
- BPA-free plastic cups are durable and dishwasher safe.
- Hands-free operation offers superior convenience
- Motor base is very stable.
- It may not add any aesthetic interest to your kitchen due to its inspired design.

The NutriBullet Pro 900W and the Bella Rocket Blender each have their own strengths and weaknesses. If you're looking for a blender that can handle tricky ingredients like leafy greens and frozen fruits, the NutriBullet Pro is the clear winner. With its powerful high-speed motor and six-pronged blade, the blender can quickly and easily puree ingredients into a silky-smooth texture without leaving chunks behind.
On the other hand, if you're on a budget or don't need heavy-duty blending power, the Bella Rocket Blender is not a bad choice. It does fall behind the level of performance and durability from the NutriBullet, but it comes with a range of useful accessories (for making small batches of smoothies, dips, and sauce) that don’t cost a fortune.
