The Magic Bullet blender allows cooks to make dishes that involve mincing and pureeing such as soup, salad dressing, mousse, dip, baby food and beverages. The company's website lists over two dozen recipes, including Strawberry-Banana Smoothie, Brisk Broccoli Soup, Lickity-Split Deviled Ham and Before You Know It Bean Dip.
The 17-piece Magic Bullet Blender also comes with the "10 Second Recipe" booklet, which provides additional recipes, including spaghetti meat sauce. Reviewers on Amazon report using the Magic Blender to make tapenade, marinade, hummus, pesto, milkshakes and emulsions, as well as grinding fresh spices and nuts. The Magic Bullet website also includes instructions for homemade beauty recipes such as facial masks and hair conditioners.
The blender set comes with two blades: a cross blade for chopping, grating and blending, and a flat blade for whipping and grinding. The cross blade is well-suited to tasks such as mincing eggs for salads or blending whole strawberries for a strawberry Bellini. Conversely, the flat blade is better for whipping liquids and grinding hard ingredients, such as whipping cream, making homemade mayonnaise and grinding whole coffee beans.
Soft food is easier to prepare according to Amazon reviewers, and some users report difficulty with ice or tough raw vegetables like carrots. However, other users say that they have no trouble making frozen drinks if they use quick pulses to macerate the ice and only make small batches.
