While I was looking at purchasing the Magic Bullet NutriBullet, I noticed a number of reviewers complaining about NutriBullet leakage and spills while making their nutriblast nutritional shakes. So when I got my NutriBullet, I wanted to make sure that I didn’t overfill it. I didn’t want my shake oozing out the sides and making a mess, or worse, potentially damaging the NutriBullet machine.
To ensure I didn’t overfill the shake cup after first getting the NutriBullet. I’d add some water to the shake cup, and then put it on a level surface and spin the cup around till I found the small fill line mark (which could be difficult depending on the color of shake I was making, especially when using darker ingredients like raspberries or blueberries). Then once I found the small fill line mark, if it wasn’t quite filled to the line, I’d put it under the water faucet again and add more water. Then again, putting on a level surface, and spending some time to find the line. Occasionally I’d have to dump out some water as I’d put in too much and wanted to avoid the mess or damage due to leakage.
After following this pattern for a week or so, I figured there had to be an easier way to fill the NutriBlast shake cup with water without the hassle of trying to find the small fill line. The solution. Use a black permanent marker to make the fill line go all the way around the cup so I could easily see the fill line while I was adding water to my shake. It took a bit of a steady hand, and my first attempt at making the line on one of the shake cups wasn’t the greatest. But, it did the trick. As I could easily see the line while filling the cup regardless of the ingredients I was using to make my shake.
For the purpose of this post, I came up with an easier way to draw a straight max fill line all the way around the shake cup without needing as much of a steady hand. Simply use a measuring device (like a measuring tape, or even a ruler) and mark off a number of marks at the same level around the NutriBlast cup and then, using the permanent marker connect the lines all the way around the cup. As you can see by the pictures below, measuring the water (or other liquid) while filling the cup is super easy once the fill line goes all the way around the shake cup. Enjoy your shakes!
