From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Magic Bullet is a compact blender manufactured by Homeland Housewares. It is widely marketed through television commercials and infomercials and sold in retail stores under the "As seen on TV" banner. A crippleware retail version not under this banner called the "Magic Bullet Single Shot+" is also available.

Product

The Magic Bullet is a personal blender that is designed to be used as a space saving replacement for other appliances such as a blender, food processor, and electric juicer. The entire Magic Bullet system consists of an electric blender base with a number of attachments. Some of the attachments are included with the product, and they are:

  • One of two available screw-on blade attachments; the "cross blade" (used for chopping foods and crushing ice).
  • Two mixing cups, one short and one tall.
  • Two handled cups, called "Party Mugs" by the manufacturer, which can be used to blend individual drinks (also with coloured "Comfort Rings" that screw over the threads).
  • Lids for the cups, intended for storing foods.
  • A instruction manual which also contains a recipe book ("Magic Bullet 10 Second Recipes and Owner Manual"), featuring recipes prepared in the infomercial and others.

Other add-ons can be purchased separately. These consist of:

  • Perforated lids for the cups that are used to ventilate items cooked in the cup when using a microwave oven, and to dispense hard foods that have been ground using the appliance.
  • The other of two available screw-on blade attachments; a "flat blade" (used for chopping harder foods, as well as for whipping)
  • Other attachments include a full size blender pitcher and a manual juice extractor attachment.

Usage

The appliance is used by attaching a blade attachment to the desired cup and fitting the assembly upside down on top of the base. The base contains the motor that turns the blade, which is inside the cup. When one applies pressure to the top of the unit, the blade spins. If one turns the cup to lock into the base, it will continue to spin until it is disengaged.

History

The design for the Magic Bullet and its attachments is registered with the United States Patent Office to Mr. Lenny Sands.

The name of the Magic Bullet is derived from the curved shape of the blending cups.

Homeland Housewares has introduced addons and different versions of the Magic Bullet including the Bullet2Go (with various accessories), the Bullet Express, and a “Fat Burning Boost” supplement to be used in conjunction with the Magic Bullet.

The Magic Bullet has been replicated and imitated on more than one occasion. Homeland Housewares has posted the following caveat on websites where counterfeits may exist, like eBay and Amazon.com.
