Been using an attachment to a food mixer but it’s stopped working for the second time. Crap plastic gears.
Looking for recommendations for a reliable stand alone model like NutriBullet. Heard so many conflicting story’s so looking for help.
Thanks in advance.

If you have a beefy budget, Vitamix is pretty hard to beat. We've had an Omniblend for years, which has been bulletproof. They're around R4k.
If you have an even bigger budget and want something incredibly rock solid, look at Hamilton Beach's commercial line. It's what Kauai uses. You're looking at R20k for one of those, however.

We have one for several years now, paid like just under 2K for it at the House & Garden Expk

I love my Nutribullet, easy to clean, easy to use, looks good, doesn't take up much counter space either

This - it looks good on the kitchen counter and doesn't take up much space doing so.

Our nutribullet has been great. Smoothies and cocktails :) Ice and frozen fruit are no problem.

I got an omniblend v about 3 years ago. Found it in the markdown section at dion wired. It gets used almost every work day to make a smoothie. Hasnt skipped a beat yet.

Hey, got mine exactly the same way. Dion wired Hyde Park. Works daily since, never skipped a beat either

What is all the fuss about Nutribullet? Buy a Safeway blender from Clicks. This is the last thing you want to spend thousands of Rands on.

Cheap blenders struggle to attack even a tomato skin in my experience.
