The Magic Bullet As Seen on TV
I can still remember the night we saw the Magic Bullet infomercial for the first time. Back then we had 5 grandchildren who lived nearby. A trip to the Dairy Queen was “over the moon.” Since hubby and I like ice cream with chocolate chips and bananas as much as the grandchildren do, we ordered the Magic Bullet on the first showing.
A week after it arrives, we are in love. Well, sort of in-love. The first week we duplicate every Blizzard the Dairy Queen offers, and more than a few of our own creations too. Any suggestions the grandchildren make, we are game.
Nothing is quite as much fun as 5 youngsters under six years old with ice cream as a mustache, jumping and squealing on the blow-up bed centered in the middle of the living room for the night’s sleepover.
When the kids are satisfied and yawning, Hubby slips into the kitchen to concoct his own creation with the The Magic Bullet while I read enough fairy tales to make my eye’s droop.
Then the demise of the Magic Bullet
Since we qualified as an early Caller during the Infomercial to purchase the Magic Bullet, the gentleman on the phone offered a “food processor attachment” at a “too good to be true,” price. Of course, there was no way we could refuse.
So while the kids are occupied, hubby determines to test the “food processor attachment.” And by the time all the kids are snoozing and I reach the Kitchen, the Magic Bullet is dead.
The Magic Bullet Review
The Magic Bullet is one of the most fun and useful appliances in our house. I use it every single day.
I have COPD and need more fruit and vegetables than a human can eat in a single day’s time. With the Magic Bullet I get an apple, a banana, an avocado, cauliflower and Yogurt every single morning in one tall drink. (My Breakfast Smoothie via the Magic Bullet.)
We have had our Second Magic Bullet for 6 years and I can not count all the veggies, Ice cream, M&M’s, Snickers, Peanuts, Almonds, Chocolate, etc., etc., that it has chopped. And it’s still in center-stage on the counter top.
The first Magic Bullet died shortly after the first week. Unfortunately Hubby decided it could do what a full-grown Food Processor could do– it could not. When he dropped a large potato into the slot and kept the power on until it was completely converted to mush, the First Magic Bullet died.
Regarding the Magic Bullet Warranty and Returns
When I called Magic Bullet about our issue with our first one, they recommended we return the first one for repairs and insisted that hubby not engage the motor for long periods of time.
The Bullet works with a pulse action (stop/start) while chopping as with any blender. Don’t hold down constantly for longer than 20 seconds. We received Magic bullet #2 in about 4 weeks with no charge to us.
Hubby is not allowed to use Magic Bullet #2
