BPA in Magic Bullet?

A friend just bought a magic bullet (regular, not baby bullet) to make baby food and then returned it the next day when she realized it wasn't BPA free. I used my magic bullet to make my DS food and had planned to use it for my next. I never even thought about BPA!! Actually I don't really even know what it is? I just know that it's bad stuff in plastic that you're supposed to avoid. Is it still safe to use? I just put the food in there to blend it and then pour it into ice cube trays, which I will have to make sure are BPA Free! And the times that I didn't use my bullet, I used my older blender that I imagine is bad plastic as well!!

Re: BPA in Magic Bullet?

I would not worry because the food doesn't sit in the bullet. You puree and pour it out. But I wouldn't heat the food in the bullet, if only because it's close to impossible open it back up again.

Re: BPA in Magic Bullet?

My understanding is that the Magic Bullet is BPA Free...why they don't say it on the front I have no idea...where was it that I saw it...I think in the booklet that you get with the bullet??? Like the first few pages??? I don't know but I could swear it is...

When I saw this I ran into the kitchen to get the magic bullet booklet. On page 4 it says that it indeed is BPA free! But it says "...magic bullet has gone BPA free." So that means that the older ones weren't.

Oh that sucks, mine is atleast 5 years old.

I did read somewhere that BPA is only bad if it's heated to very hot temperatures. Not sure if this is true though. I was thinking BPA was only bad if it was sitting in something for a long time, such as a baby bottle or water bottle.

Re: BPA in Magic Bullet?

It would be nice to know when they switched to BPA free, we've had our's for a few years, (booklet is long gone), but I think I'll still be ok, because the food will be in the plastic for less then 5 min, after that it will be stored in ice cube trays and/or containers. I'll just make sure that I double check they are BPA free when I get those.

Re: BPA in Magic Bullet?

I have a Magic Bullet and also wanted to confirm the product is BPA free. The guide makes a statement that it has "gone BPA free" and then continues on with modified heating instructions, which had me question if they were taking a position that modified heating eliminates release of BPA. Of course, this would not be the same as "free", but you never know if they're playing on words these days, so I called to verify.

Customer Service at Homeland Housewares, LLC did confirm that Bisphenol A was eliminated from all of the containers in 2010. The agent also requested the number from the bottom of my unit and looked it up to confirm it was a model without BPA. She explained the modified heating instructions were to address a warping issue with the plastic now used. I actually don't use plastic in the micro anyway, so this is not a concern for me. Bottom line, if you have a model purchased before 2010, than yes, it contains BPA. If you purchased during 2010 or at the start of 2011, call the company (866-446-6352) to have them look up your unit number to verify whether that's the case if it's a concern. If you have to leave a mssg, they will call back.

Re: BPA in Magic Bullet?

I know this is a necro, but this is a top Google hit. I just called Magic Bullet customer service and they told me that all their products have always been BPA-free. So even though mine was from 2009, they assured me that it was also BPA free.
