Consumer Reports Slams Nutri Bullet 900 Pro Blender

Today I read a Consumer Reports like no other. Consumer Reports slams the blender maker of the Nutri Bullet Pro 900. The report first pointed to the failed durability test. When the Nutri Bullet 900 was used to crush 4 large ice cubes a bit of the blade broke off. This happened with the backup blade as well.

Our elders—grandparents, aging parents–require assistance with daily living activities, after a certain threshold. Even the most active seniors will, if the live long enough, reach an age where they require help dressing, showering, cooking, cleaning and depending on health, possibly even diaper changes. Though some dedicated and loving kids do all of this caregiving alone (not easy.) Most require a Home Care Assistant to help them on a regular basis.

About 60% of the cases of dog illness included gastrointestinal distress, liver disease [...]
