Cheap and great results are the two words id use to explain the Bella Rocket Blender. It may not be as popular or well-known as the black magic bullet, Ninja or Nutribullet range, but they certainly do the job just as well if not better. Turn ice into powered snow, create your own baby food or grind coffee beans – this blender has the power to do it all!
It’s cheaper price also lends the blender to some potential problems that you could face down the track. After browsing the reviews, I’ve created the good with the bad.
And now down to the review…

Describe The Bella Rocket Pro Blender Reviews
The Bella Rocket Pro comes packed with:
- The Powerbase
- TheBlending Blade
- The Grinding Blade
- 3x large 24oz single walled tumblers
- 2x small 12oz single walled tumblers
- The Shaker top
- Travel Lid
- 3x storage lids
- 2x lip rings
Bella Rocket Blender Pro comes packed with a strong 700-watt motor. The power of the motor is nearly equal to that of the Nutri Ninja Pro (900-watt) and the Nutribullet Pro (900 watts) and goes past the Magic Bullet’s 250-watt motor.
The Bella Rocket comes with an impressive range of extras that you won’t find with the leading brands mentioned above. The grinding blade is unique to this blender, allowing you to create your own spice mix, grind nuts or coffee beans. You also get more cups included with your purchase.
As you can see from the video above – the blender performs well. If you plan on creating green smoothies, this machine will serve you well. You won’t be able to produce hot soups, but you will be able to create cold soup to heat up via the stove or microwave.
If you are tossing up between the Black Magic Bullet and the Bella Rocket Pro – go for the Bella. The Bella costs roughly the same as the Magic Bullet. The Magic Bullet won’t handle nearly as well with ice, nuts, kale, and frozen berries – not to mention you get less in the box.
The Bella handles roughly the same as the Ninja Pro and the Nutribullet 900. It shares some of their construction problems, fairing less sturdy – but it’s a decent value for money.
The Not So Good
The is the number one complaint about the machine – is the blade housing. Being a cheaper blender, it does suffer when it comes to building quality. The drive socket on the base of the blender and blade housing’s connector are made of cheap plastic.
Given the extra powerful motor – the plastic will wear down with consistent use. At this point, you will need to send the blade housing back or purchase a new blade housing if your warranty time is up.
Some of the complaints have centered around seeing a fine black powder (worn down plastic) or a black liquid (worn down plastic mixed with water). Brands such as Vitamix use a whole metal construction in these areas to ensure long term durability.
The next chief complaint from people is that the blender is very loud – more so than your average blender. If you determine this is the case, be sure here to add in enough liquid when blending frozen ingredients.
Warranty and Returns
The warranty period for Bella is one year. One benefit of purchasing through Amazon is the option to bundle your purchase with SquareTrade 2-Year or 3-Year Electronics Accident Protection Plan. Starting from $5, you can extend the warranty.
Amazon also offers a 30-day return policy, so if the Bella does not live up to your expectations, feel free to return it for a full refund – tho I’m quite sure you’ll be quite happy with your new blender.
The Final Judgment
If you are planning on using the machine every day – even twice a day, there is a chance that you will run into issues and I’d recommend you consider something a little more durable such as the Nutrabullet 900. It does cost an extra $20, but it’s durable.
On the other hand, if you planning on making the occasional smoothie or grinding down your coffee beans, the blender will serve you just fine. In saying that, id highly consider the expanded warranty (just to be on the safe side) offered by Amazon or your local retailer.
Let’s look at the features of this budget small blender:
- The 700-watt motor
- Comes with two cutting blades – an emulsifying blade and a cutting blade (the latter is for grinding dry ingredients)
- Stainless steel metal

- Comes with three 24-ounce cups, two 12-ounce cups, three solid lids, one travel lid, two lip rings, and one shaker lid

- It’s 12.2″ tall
- Compact size is lightweight and easy to wash
- The Great warranty for a blender at this price range
- Lots of accessories included
- A cheaper than the more expensive Nutri Ninja Pro
- There are complaints of leakages from the blade to the motor base (this is a common problem for this type of blenders, not just the Bella)
- The Blades are not as sturdy or as sharp as the Nutri Ninja
Easy to use
This blender only has a one-speed setting. And similar to the other brands I mentioned you just line up the cup to the slots on the base, push then twist to engage the motor.
It does not take long for this machine to make smoothies – just under a minute. And the great thing about this is you can take the cup with you to work or to the gym. Just switch the blade with a lid and off you go.
Here’s a video of the Bella Rocket Extract Pro in action making a green smoothie that includes Flax milk, some ice cubes, spinach, wheatgrass, banana, and whey protein.
Take note that with these types of blenders, you should always put in liquid so you don’t burn out the motor.
What can this make?
This machine is primarily a smoothie maker.
You can make green smoothies and protein shakes using the stainless steel emulsifying blades.
