Last April, I received in the mail the nutribullet for my birthday. It was one of the best gifts I’ve gotten in my adult life. I used it almost every day to make breakfast smoothies. It started being the only thing we had for breakfast. It was yummy, healthy, and filling. I noticed good changes in my energy and my body almost instantly and it was fun coming up with new creations.
So when our move to India happened, I decided to pack my nutribullet despite the lack of space in our suitcases.
I couldn’t use it in India until today, 23 days after our arrival, because we had been moving around and settling down and needed to get the ingredients and chlorine solution to wash them.
Today I was excited to make my first nutribullet smoothie in India consisting of: banana, apple, cashews, yogurt, peanut butter, milk, water, and honey. Quite simple compared to the ones I made in the US.
Little did I know, my nutribullet would spark up, smoke and burn after maybe 3 seconds of use. The watt voltage in India was too high for the nutribullet, a plugadapter was not enough to make it work. The nutribullet is so awesome, that after 3 seconds I still had a smoothie, yet not a smooth one but drinkable. But not good enough to repeat, especially since it started burning. I am actually not sure if it is dead because I turned it off before it stopped working by itself.
Now we have to find a way to try to convert the voltage, or forget about the nutribullet forever.
It was a sad moment for me.
I can always buy an Indian blender but it is not the same than the nutribullet. The nutribullet was tough, it would blend raw beets, all kinds of nuts and fruits and vegetables into a smooth drink. Now it sounds like I am advertising but I have fallen in love with it back in the US during its 3 month use.
