Best blender I have ever owned
Posted by: CAPNDigital from: on
I have never had a blender with such power! This is by far the best blender I personally have ever owned.
The large 88oz pitcher is fantastic for making milkshakes, smoothies, and other frozen drinks for multiple people at one time. The quality of the actual pitcher is amazing, it is heavy and sturdy, the blades are super sharp, so be cautious when washing them.
I use the personal cups practically every day to make breakfast smoothies, they are so easy to load and use.
The blades and power of the motor do a wonderful job at blending ingredients together so even and smooth. The built in Auto-IQ buttons are nice and I use them for my morning smoothies.
The large pitcher and the personal cups snap into the motor base very nicely and the motor unit will not come on unless they are snapped in properly.
My only complaint is that the motor is so very loud and I can't stand to be too close to it when it is on, but loud motor seem to be the norm for all blenders I have used.
Overall I really enjoy using the Nutri Ninja Blendmax Duo Auto-iq and would recommend this to my friends and family.

Replaced two blender systems
Posted by: AgentOJ from: on
I have owned numerous blenders in the past to make smoothies out of frozen fruit, blended ice drinks (pina colada & margaritas), and protein shakes. Most blenders could do one or the other well, but the BlendMax Duo can do both very well. One strange but ingenious feature is the suction cup feet at the bottom, which prevents the BlendMax from vibrating all over the counter at high loads.
I have been using the blender daily for a week and have had no issues other than the fact that it is very loud. Every blender that is as strong as the BlendMax Duo has the noise issue though so it’s not a real knock on it.
When I need to blend a lot, I use the 88oz pitcher which uses a unique approach to making sure everything is blended perfectly. I have only experienced blenders with blade assemblies at the bottom, and this is the first time I have seen a blender with blades throughout the jar, which results in properly blended drinks, smoothies, salsas, and anything else you need blended really.
When I am making a smoothie for myself I use one of the Ninja cups, pop on one of the lids and take it with me. This is much more convenient than making a smoothie in my other blender and putting the smoothie in my screw cap cups I have since it is faster you use the Ninja cups and reduces the dish washing I have to do.
A bonus for me is the food processor which I found handy in making chopped salsas when I was too lazy to cut up the ingredients. In my opinion it is always better to hand cut anything you want chopped, but the food processor comes through when in a bind/lazy. There
There is a plastic blade that is meant for mixing dough that I did not use, but do see the utility in.
Able to make blended iced drinks perfectly.
Blades throughout the 88oz jar
Ninja cups with lids are great at making to-go smoothies
Food processor is a nice add-on
Auto-IQ settings do exactly what they say they do
Replaced 2 products (my blender and single serve smoothie maker)
Lots of accessories

Wow turned me into loving smoothies
Posted by: redderr from: Queens, NY on
I got my product two day ago and assembled it the same day and put it into use for the holidays. It comes with 1600-Watt Motor Base with Auto-iQ Boost,
88 ounce Pitcher with Lid and Pour Spout (about 80 ounce total though)
A set of very, very powerful rust free Total Crushing Blades, (2) 24 ounce cups and an 18 ounce cup and (3) Spout Lids, Instruction Book, a very nice 20-Recipe Inspiration Guide and a useful (to me) Quick Start Guide. The box shows two bases but it does in fact only include one base.
I am a first time user of these types of fruit smoothie blenders and must say this is a pleasure to use. The jars are all BPA free plastics and not microwavable nor useable for hot items.
The blades are the most difficult part to set up but that is basically a breeze. The power of the motor seems suitable for a small snow blower. The motor completely obliterates the fruit and other ingredients and makes the smoothie a real professional smoothie you pay money to get at fancy stores. Strawberries, omg are so delicious, ice cream smoothies are the best. I just love the machine and love the smaller jars to blend smaller on the go portions.
I think the overall design, easy of cleanup, power and durability make this one machine to make part of your permanent kitchen appliances. I feel healthier for just having it. I can not wait to experiment with more fruits and whatever else I can think of. Ah yes great for making delicious adult beverages...really fun experimenting so far.
Buy it!, it can replace at least two kitchen appliances so you will have room to make it a staple appliance on your countertop.
One other important thing is the stacking nature of these blades and the IQ programs are what makes mixing ingredients throughly better on this blender than other blenders I have seen at friends homes.

Very Powerful, but LOUD
Posted by: 3Tcubed from: Phoenix.AZ on
My first step after unpacking was to fill the blender to the max liquid line and give it a spin to make sure it was "clean". After selecting the Frozen Drink button, the motor came to life and really caught my attention. It 's quite loud, but you could clearly see a real vortex in the spinning water, with the slight problem that it was leaking from the well sealed top (which I rechecked to make sure it was well closed - it was). I tried again, and still it leaked; I removed about 8oz of water and it no loner leaked - my advise, consider it a 80oz pitcher not a 88oz.
I then proceeded to make ice cream smooth with mint chocolate chip ice cream, a little half and half and a few ice cubes. I selected the AutoIQ function for smoothy and it went to work for about 1:10, pulsing one and off, loudly. The bottom of the unit has suctions cups on it so it stayed firmly in place. The smoothy emerged, with no real sign of chocolate chip, just dots the size of vanilla bean seeds. Just what I'd hoped for - a job well done by the Ninja.
Clean-up was easy just half fill the blender with water, turn it on, for a few seconds and the blender looked clean, carefully remove the very sharp blades, and dry, which is pretty easy as it's easy to reach in side the well sized blender.
I later made an adult beverage in the included 16oz "bullet" cup and it returns a wonderful frozen concoction, with the ice fairly evenly crushed. A few lumps remained, that a few extra pulses remedied. Except for the loudness a good experience.
They say the blender is top shelf dishwasher safe, but getting it upright on the top shelf, was not going to happen in my dish washer. The duo package includes 3 ninja cups (1*18oz & 2*24oz) thes are very sturdy solid cups.
I would have given the blender 5 stars if it were not for the fill max leak, and the loudness of the unit. This is a very powerful blender that can certainly crush much of it's competition (pun intended); is seems very well build, but it is noisy, but I would recommend it as would expect it to liquify just about anything.

Excellent Blender - Not a Juicer
Posted by: ElisaBH from: on
This "total crushing" blender is both powerful and easy to use. It comes with two attachable jars and one blade that works for those jars. It also comes with a very large pitcher and a the blade that works with it. A recipe book is included.
The pros of this blender are many. It suctions firmly to the counter. The blade for the pitcher is stacked and able to blend all the food at once. There is a spout in the lid of the pitcher. It is extremely easy to clean. The button options are explained in the instructions, telling which foods are best to use with each function. It crushes ice to snow in just seconds.
The negatives are few, but are still there. It is louder than a traditional blender. Not all of the functions will work with the jar. (The machine gives an error message, though, so one doesn't think the blender is broken.) Harder produce, such as carrots and apples, are not reduced to a pulp--this is not a juicer. (They are, however, chopped perfectly for use in recipes.) It is HUGE and doesn't fit well in a smallish kitchen.
Overall, despite any complaints, this is an excellent blender. It excels at doing what a traditional blender does, and has added features that will make it an excellent addition to any kitchen.

Use it every day!
Posted by: TcCokato from: on
I've never been a fan of blended drinks, that is until I used this blender. With my other blender my drinks, shakes, smoothies would always end up with large lumps of ice or pieces of frozen fruit. This blender has produced nothing but perfectly blended drinks, that rival the local smoothy shop.
The pre-programmed settings allow you to fill the container with your favorite ingredients press the desired button and walk away the blender will do the rest, even boosting the speed of the blade when needed to break up those pesky lumps.
I have made Quad berry smoothies (Strawberries, Raspberries, Blue-Berries, and blackberries) with a bunch of Chia seeds to see if it was powerful enough to break through the notoriously tough seeds and much to my surprise the drink was silky and smooth. This was an immediate 5-star rating from me.
My only complaint is that the suction cups are extremely strong, a suction release would be extremely helpful for moving this unit around the counter top.
The unit comes with:
1600 watt Motor base (~2.2 hp) with Auto-iQ Boost
88 oz. pitcher
Lid and pour spout which locks securely to the large pitcher
Three tier Ninja blade assembly
2 - 24 oz.Tritan Nutri Ninja Cups
1 - 18oz. Tritan Nutri Ninja Cups
3 spout lids for taking your blended drinks on the road.
20-recipe inspiration guide
This blender is well worth the investment and highly recommended.

Good, but not great
Posted by: Longhorn74 from: on
In our home, the blender is a very important kitchen appliance. We have a regular blender and a juicer, so when I saw the Ninja Blendmax Duo, I thought this would take care of both. We have made mixed drinks, smoothies and salsa with the Ninja and it did an awesome job of preparing all items, especially with the mixed drinks. When I tried the to juice my daily celery and cucumber in the large pitcher, the blender would not work because it is only programmed to work with the smaller container. I tried the smaller container and it didn't do a good job a juicing my celery and cucumber. This is the only reason why I give it 4 out of 5 stars. The blender has a great look with the chrome finish.

Beauty AND the Beast
Posted by: Arjay67 from: Kankakee, IL on
When I first saw this blender and the rest of the Ninja line I was skeptical. Most of what I saw were the informercials and that typically translates into, “over-priced garbage that isn’t worth a hill of beans”. Then I received the Nutri Ninja Blendmax Duo Auto-iq as a gift. Man, was I surprised! Seems well built and the only reservation I still have is that the pitcher appears to be polycarbonate instead of the glass pitchers that I’m accustomed to. But that’s just the “old fashioned” part of my brain kicking in.
This appliance has a good capacity pitcher for blending/pureeing just about anything that you can throw into it. There are 2 tall cups and 1 short cup. These are great for mixing up drinks one-off. They do a very good job at pulverizing anything in there. My first creation was a strawberry yogurt smoothie. It wasn’t perfect, but I dare you to find a blender that is. There was very little of the seeds left at all, so my smoothie was actually very smooth. AND YUMMY! (but most of the credit goes to the creator—me) LOL
The second thing I threw at it was my Sage. I like to grow my own herbs since it’s monumentally cheaper than store bought bottles. So I took all the Sage that I grew this summer and had dried earlier and tossed it in the pitcher. Locked the lid and hit “Total Crush”. Slightly less than one minute later my Sage leaves and stems were reduced to a finely ground powder. Just what I want for cooking!
Third try, Gazpacho! I like the base of my Gazpacho to be velvety. Just like the way I first tried it. Dumped all my base ingredients: tomatoes, peppers, carrots, celery, etc in and in a couple of minutes it was a smooth delicious slurry. Nom, nom, nom.
After that I just had to see what it would do for a conventional frozen drink. Ice, sour mix, liberal addition of Tequila. Whoa, I’m half in the bag now. Woo hoo!
Some other reviewers have stated that they think it’s loud. To me, it’s nowhere near as loud as my old blender. And, after all, it’s a freaking blender; and it’s powerful. So there will be some noise, get over it.
The auto pre-sets really help out. You have three main speeds, pulse and several presets. Want a smoothie? There’s a button. Want a frozen drink? There’s a button. Want to crush something into oblivion? There’s a button. For example, I loaded it with just ice to see what it would do. A minute later I had a blender filled with snow. NO inconsistency, no chunks left behind.
* Great capacity and variety: 3 sizes - 2 tall - 1 short - 1 pitcher
* Positively Locking Lid - Give you a sense of security with all this power
* Very powerful motor
* Auto pre-sets
* Affordable, but even better as a Christmas gift because it’s free!
* Actually worth the price charged if you want one and don’t have a benefactor.
* Quieter than most blenders
* Non-glass pitcher, but then again it probably won’t shatter if dropped. So maybe not too much of a con.
* Costs more than $50.00 (yeah, cause I’m cheap!)
I can hardly wait until next fall when my Pumpkins crop comes in. I’m sure that this beauty will be a real beast when I need to puree 4-6 roasted pumpkins into puree. As I said in the beginning, I was a skeptic when I first got it. But now I’m a believer. I may not even put in back in the appliance cabinet. This is going to get a lot of use so I think it will stay out on the counter for a good while.

Crushing ice and liquefying veggies.
Posted by: TechEnthusiast from: on
The Blendmax Duo has an enormous amount of power for such a small device.
I have had no trouble liquefying fruits and veggies or crushing ice with this blender. The machine is incredibly sturdy, and I'm sure that it will last for years to come.
The suction cups on the base are STRONG. The first time I peeled it off my counter, I was afraid that I was going to pull my countertop right off my cabinets. Whatever you do, make sure that you store this somewhere easily accessible. Otherwise, you will have a devil of a time trying to pry it free.
My only real complaint about this device is the noise. This thing is LOUD. I gather this is because of how powerful the motor is. You aren't going to be making any smoothies in the dead of night with this (unless you want to wake your entire household and neighbors). That being said, its excellent performance strongly outweighs this drawback.
I've been using this for lunchtime smoothies for a little while now, and I have to say that I'm very pleased with its performance. I would definitely recommend this blender.

Not your average blender
Posted by: 30stmrox from: Philadelphia, PA on
I wanted to make smoothies and bought a cheap blender which could hardly even crush the ice. This blender crushed frozen strawberries into "snow" with zero effort. It has a nice boost Auto IQ feature which slowly pulses to get the right amount of blending. There are many features on the blender which I haven't tried yet but I'll be excited to use. It's like 2 blenders in one & comes with an 88 oz. durable bpa free plastic pitcher with a spout lid, 2 personal take along cups, 18 & 24 oz with pop up lids. Suction cups on the bottom keep it secure while in use & comes apart easily for cleaning. There is a timer which shows countdown & a 20 recipe guide also included. This is not your grandmas blender, I love it & can't wait to try more features & recipes
