Should we or shouldn't we use our Nutribullet?……..
After seeing all the news on some Nutribullets exploding and doing harm to those using them, I am scared to use mine now. What are your thoughts on this? I haven’t seen a recall on them.
It sounds like the model that makes soup?
I have the 900 series. I make smoothies only in it. Sometimes, I cannot open the lid after use. I leave it alone for about 10 minutes, and then I can open it.
It does seem to appear that operator error may be to blame. But without more details it is hard to draw any conclusions. mooncat3 is correct unplug the unit if it starts to run crazy and wait using caution after cooling off to remove the container.
Goggle: Rosa Rivera lawsuit against the Nutribullet. HSN wrote allow us to post links. Nutribullet states it is user error.
Since we can’t know if the user abused the safety instructions it’s hard to say. I did read that a few people mentioned “the blades spinning faster than usual” and when they went to unlock the canister is when it exploded. So we don’t know if they filled passed the safety line or ran it longer than they were supposed to. But my best advise is if you notice the unit behaving unusual unplug it right away and don’t open it until it’s cooled down- and be prepared and protected.
We can see if there is a recall. Looks like several law suits are going on.
In the Nutribullet Manual it states:
The most recent edition of the NutriBullet manual supplies clear warnings to users regarding heated contents.
“Do not put hot liquids in any of the blending vessels before blending. Start with cool or room temperature ingredients. Heated ingredients can create internal pressure in a sealed blending vessel, which may erupt on opening and cause thermal injury.”
It sounds like it was hot if burned- I’d guess over full too…I only use mine for smoothies and have certainly used it over 200 times w/ no issues. I’m careful not to over fill.
2 people out of how many thousands? I would use mine w/ caution, being sure not to over fill and over run. Keep my hands at the top- maybe you can google it and see if you can find more details in an article.
From what I saw on our local news ABC7 Los Angeles the canister is breaking/exploding and the 2 people this happened to got their hands cut and burned. Also, another lady was burned on her face and chest. Supposedly the canister had to much pressure build up in it. They never said if they had cold or hot liquid in the canisters. (Maybe the user over filled it.) not enough was covered in the newscast.
What is expolding exactly? The motor? Or what?
