Would you believe it, Dr. Oz uses the Magic Bullet

I was watching Dr. Oz on Friday when he had that 4th giveaway. I mean he has some good ideas, but some of the herbs he recommends are possibly not available that easy. I do love his idea of rolled oat porridge for breakfast. I made some this morning and it was so filling I had to put some in the fridge to eat tomorrow or on Monday. Now as you know I do not like celebrity endorsements, especially that from Montel Williams who has to have a psychic on the show to help sells his products. But Dr. Oz is a doctor and yet he is like the rest of ordinary people. He uses the Magic Bullet to make snacks for his family (well I suppose his wife does most of it.) He does not use that fancy Healthmaster. Would you believe it? I was thinking if someone gave me the complete Magic Bullet as a gift I would not refuse it, but I would not buy it myself, and besides right now I have other products and things that I need, but maybe in a few months I might change my mind. I do have an Osterizer and the glass chipped. And also it did not blend that good by the way. So was anyone surprised like e when he and the guest opened the box and there was the Magic Bullet underneath?

I guess I didn't see that broadcast! I have a friend who uses it for lots of things and says it's a very useful tools. i don't have one and I'm not planning on buying one anytime soon! But I do like to watch Dr. Oz!

I heard it is good for grinding coffee. I have a couple of those Beaumark grinders and the grinds seem to go over the side. And I do want something that does everything. But I do not want to spend money, and would rather see how many points I have.

I hadn't thought about its ability to grind coffee. Sounds like one more use for the thing!

I was watching that commercial when that Australian guy and his wife showed what they used the Magic Bullet for, and grinding coffee was one of the things it did. They also made; the usual smoothies, chopped garlic, made salsas and that Mexican version of grilled cheese among other things. Oh yes they also made a muffin mix and used the juicer to make drinks. Sp it can do a lot. I do not know if it can grind meat other then chicken or turkey. Most small food processors can do that, but do not know if it can chop up beef and pork.

I think I have even seen other health professionals on television use it, as well as some celebrities. I have not looked at it very carefully as I do not have room for more appliances right now. This does make me feel that the product is useful and reliable.

I am considering buying it. I did not at first because I heard that some products were not good and before it was just the single blender. I do have a blender but the glass is chipped and I have to go way over the city to get a new one. I guess glass is not good when it chips easily. I would rather get something that a professional uses, like a cook, or someone who is in the health profession then something from an ordinary celebrity. I do need a blender combination that also includes a juicer and even though I like the Ninja1100 I can only order it from the States. It is not available in the stores here in Canada.

Hubby and I stopped at a kitchen store in an outlet mall the other day. I looked at the Magic Bullet and I must say it is sturdier than I thought it would be. They did not have a Ninja on the shelf. I think having one out of the box is crucial to making sales of the items.

That is what we do here. The stores show the Magic Bullet and also we have Showcase that carries most of the AS Seen on Tv (except of course for the Ninja1100 or the Nuwave Oven Pro because they seem to think that the only good sellers are ---). I usually shop at Zellers and at Home Ourfitters for household items and SEars for appliances, and I find if I can see the item, I know if it is any good. I will have to check my HBC points to see if I have enough to buy one. I will probably have to order the Nuwave Oven Pro later, but I need a printer now.

We own a Magic Bullet, and yes, they are quite handy little thing to own, and we would not trade owning one. And what they can do compared to a blender, etc. it is so much easier to make just for one person for sure. To hear that Dr. Oz uses one and recommends them is of no surprise. I am sure after he announced this the sales on them continued to rise again for sure.

We have them available in some of our stores and they are cheaper then ordering on line but do not know if it includes everything. I am debating between getting one or those Ninja100. I know I need something that does juicing as well. But it will not be for sometime yet.

It is soooo funny, but every time I hear "Magic Bullet", I think of something else. It could have to do with a party I went to one time. lol

You have to admit its a handy little product. I think if somebody can get good use out of it they should tell other people. I know that talk shows and television shows use product placement if they want to help sell a product and a lot of people rely on Dr. Oz for good advice.

I thought it was just hype but then they started to put it in the stores. First it was just the single Magic Bullet, and that was a few years ago, and I thought no good, but now they have the whole set and I thought well it does look like it might work, but when someone who is a doctor and a health advocate as well, and is not just a celebrity, then I say it will work. Do not have enough points for it now, but when I do I will go and get it.

Can say that really surprise me. Dr Oz is all about making healthy living easier on people. The magic bullet doesn't take up much space and is easy to use. Sounds like something he'd b all about.

I had never heard of that and had to look it up. It certainly is an attractive appliance but I have a blender already that I rarely use. I like to have it but don't have that much use for it. I don't watch that program but I've heard he's a good doctor. I eat oat bran for breakfast 3-4 days a week. It's like oatmeal only more fiber. I cook it like oatmeal and add raisins, dates and walnuts. It's very filling and yummy! I also use it to make muffins sometimes, with applesauce, raisins, nuts, powdered milk, egg white and some baking powder to make it rise. They are delicious!
