Nutr Review 2022: Everything You Need to Know About the High-Tech Nut Milk Machine


I was holding a slimy, wet oats-filled cheesecloth with one hand and “milking” said cheesecloth with the other when I said aloud, “This is not 1804, what am I trying to prove?” After an entire day of soaking oats, and another hour of milking a bulging cheesecloth like a cow udder, I was blessed with less than one cup of the worst oat milk I’ve ever tasted. So I admitted defeat, huffed to the corner store wearing a T-shirt stained with watery oat liquid, and left with an $8 carton of the second worst oat milk I’ve ever tasted. I promise, y’all, I tried the cheesecloth method multiple times over the years in an attempt to make The Pioneer Woman proud. But you get to a point where the effort is simply not worth the result. And that’s when the Nutr, a machine the size of a French press, came into my life. 

Now I’m not averse to most store-bought plant-based milks. If Chobani asked me to be an influencer for its Zero Sugar Oatmilk, I would say yes without hesitation. But I’d be remiss to pass up an opportunity to try a machine that makes fresh plant-based milk at home—especially with an odd little name like Nutr. This kitchen gadget is new to the market, but it’s already raking in positive reviews—and you can consider this article another one. Let me walk you through my Nutr review, including how it works, price, benefits and drawbacks, and how I’ve used it.

How does the Nutr work?

Step 1: Add Nuts. The machine, which is shaped like a pitcher, comes with a little scooper. To start making milk, I add one scoop of nuts or grain (oats are the cheapest and easiest to start with), water, and any other additional ingredients like salt, dates, maple syrup, cinnamon, or a touch of oil. I’ve enjoyed using the machine because I know exactly what ingredients are going in my plant-based milk. And while most store-bought milks, which have more ingredients, are safe for consumption, it’s nice to make smaller servings with familiar ingredients.

Step 2: Select temperature. You can choose the temperature of your nut milk (room temperature, warm, or hot), which plays a huge part in my positive Nutr review, because I love adding warm oat milk to coffee and pasta. Though I don’t drink soy milk, having a hot setting is a game-changer for people who do, because otherwise, the process of making it at home is arduous and, frankly, not worth the hassle.

Step 3: Press start. Once you find your temperature setting, the cycle starts. The Nutr uses stainless steel blades to grind up your ingredients in under five minutes, and the glass lid allows you to see it all happen. Once the cycle finishes, you can use it as is, or strain any pulp with the included strainer. If you want to try your hand at fun recipes, the device comes with a whole book of ’em.

Does the Nutr work better than a blender?

If you’re anything like me, you’re hesitant to bring yet another single-use kitchen gadget into your home. But this machine most certainly does the job better than a blender. I have the Beast Blender, which works like a charm for smoothies, soups, and whatnot, but like most blenders (besides a few Vitamix models), I still needed to soak the nuts overnight and clean up a pulpy mess post-blend. The Nutr doesn’t require soaking, and it’s self-cleaning.

What features set Nutr apart from other nut milk makers?

Beyond its basic purpose of making nut milk, the Nutr also has a Boil setting that essentially replaces your need for a kettle. It also holds the temperature of your milk with its Keep Warm feature and automatically turns off when the lid is unlocked.
