Magic Bullet

Magic Bullet

Magic Bullet We have a Magic Bullet at our house, but who doesn't?  This must have been the most purchased appliance in the past 10 years.  I supposed it gets top marks for convenience.  It really is easy to use and easy to clean.  Plus it helps that you can make your smoothie then drink it right out of the same cup ...
