So, my boyfriend was a very good boyfriend and used his Bed Bath & Beyond gift card to finally buy me the Magic Blender I've been wanting since I've started Medifast 14 weeks ago. I love it so far, but here is my question....

I notice there are 2 different blades...1 that is straight, and 1 that is bent upward. What is the difference between those 2 blades and when would I want to use each one? (If anyone uses their MB to make mashed cauliflower, please let me know which blade you use...I've been using the one bent upwards)...

Mix shakes and puddings with low blade. Chopping stuff, including ice to chop into something with large blade...

Comment #1

I use the upward blade for everything except for dry things (like breaking down the Medifast crackers or chicken noodle soup)...

Comment #2

I use the flat blade for my mashed cauliflower and the small cup - it will come out real smooth I use that blade for pudding also and the "winged blade for everything else...

Comment #3

The instruction book describes what the blades are for. What I can remember off-hand is that the low blade is for whipping, and the other bladee is for chopping...

Comment #4

Technically I think it has something to do with the angle of attack on the blade (sorry geek sneaks out at times). One designed to add air and the other designed to crush things...

Comment #5

I'm not sure what the difference is, I use the one with the bent blades for everything. Now that I think about, I think I lost the other one, I have no idea where it is!!..

I bought one yesterday and I am really disappointed and I did read the instruction book! My shakes are still coming out with big chunks of ice and I know I am using the right blade..

Any ideas, I am really struggling with choking down the shakes and blending is the only way I can drink them...

Are you using pretty big ice cubes? Are you letting it blend long enough? I think it helps if you use smaller ice cubs. I'm using the kind that you buy bagged from the store. Also, I first blend the powder and some water, and then I add the ice and blend again. I let it go for quite some time. There is a note on it to not let it go for more than a minute at a time, so I usually stop it a couple times...

Why are these better than regular blenders? I have a new blender but if the MB is better, I'll go for it.....

Comment #9

I love that it's smaller and easier to clean. That's my most favorite part about it. Also, I feel like shakes come out a little bit different. I use a blender at my office and the Magic Bullet at home and the MB ones seem..."fluffier."..

Comment #10

I do have to blend for quite a while to get the ice to blend up. As noted above, I stop and start it, take it out and shake it, start it again, etc. but you CAN get it really smooth..

The bullet is great because it's small to store and easy to clean...

I got my Magic Bullet about a week ago. Cleaning my regular blender is a chore and this is so easy. I ordered additional cups so I can just throw them in the dishwasher. I also can make a shake and before I leave for work, put a top on the cup and bring it with me to work. I am trying not to have my first Medifast meal until 8:00 am, since then the meals space out in a way that by the time I get home I have at least one more meal to eat. The Magic Bullet is also small an does not take up a lot of counter space, which is key if you have a small kitchen.

I think pulsing the machine for ice breakup is important and make sure you are using the blades that stick up and not the flat blades.
