The KOIOS 850W Bullet personal blender is within the same price range as the Magic Bullet 11-Piece Set, but based on performance, it showed much more potential. Although its outputs weren’t perfect, with some still containing a smattering of blended chunks (for example the extraction of leafy greens), they were smoother than those produced by the Magic Bullet 11-Piece Set, and possibly top of this market segment.

If you place these two blenders next to each other, the overall design is quite similar. But the KOIOS 850W Bullet is sleeker and  offers accessories not on the Magic Bullet 11-Piece Set, including the flat blade assembly for dry grinding, and a sieve lid that can be used as a cooking dredge for any seasonings.

In conclusion, we believe the KOIOS 850W Bullet  offers you a better way to make smoothies at home. It’s also a more ideal personal blender for your sauces, protein shakes, or even grinding coffee beans.
