Blends well, but so very loud
Posted by: CAPNDigital from: on
This Ninja blender works quite well, but is so loud (as most blenders are) I can't be in the room while it is on. The cups are absolutely fantastic! It makes it easy to make a smoothie or milkshake to take on the go. The Ninja makes quick work of ice and frozen fruit, blending the ingredients smooth and evenly. The one touch button for smoothies is great and does the job usually in one pass. The bowl for food processing is quite small, but works well for chopping up graham crackers to make pie crust.
Overall it does what it says and the blades are SUPER sharp! My only complaint is the motor's noise level, it is just so very loud. It makes wonderful smoothies and milkshakes!

Versatile and Effective Blender
Posted by: Kelby from: on
I like the design of this Ninja blender. It has a modern, sleek look with an appealing black and silver finish. The buttons on the base of the blender are clearly labeled with the name of each function, and they are easy to press. In addition, the cord length more than suits my needs based on where I like to place the blender in my kitchen, and the suction cups on the bottom of the blender prevent it from moving while turned on. Regarding the included plastic containers, each is durable but also lightweight.
Firstly, the blender comes with four containers, which include: one 4-cup bowl, one 32 oz. cup, and two 24 oz. cups. I have found the 4-cup Nutri Bowl to be especially useful because I like to make a yogurt blend that my whole family can share. Each container seems well-made, so I am not worried about them breaking anytime soon. Additionally, the three cups have lids, which are great to have when you want to transport the drink you have made. I like to take a smoothie with me to work in the morning, so I am glad there are lids included. Also, all the containers are easy to clean. The plastic has not lost its color, and sticky residue is not overly difficult to clean from the cup.
Secondly, the Auto-IQ Technology is fantastic. Pausing and pulsing patterns are performed automatically, which is not only convenient but also more effective than manual operation. I enjoy this blender’s ease of use, and it did not take me long to learn what each Auto-IQ program does.
I am very impressed with how well this blender can crush and mix almost any food you put into it, even frozen food. Thanks to the powerful motor and blades, I have been able to achieve very smooth blends every time. As mentioned above, the Auto-IQ technology drastically contributes to the effectiveness of each blend. You can control the texture and consistency, which not every blender is able to do, at least not as well as this Ninja blender.
If you are looking for a versatile blender that can blend, chop, mix, or even knead dough, this Ninja blender is the one for you. With the sleek design, it looks nice in my kitchen, the features, such as a variety of containers and Auto-IQ technology, are very useful, and it is one of the most effective blenders I have ever used.

Great blender/food processor
Posted by: JamexRZ from: on
Great blender/food processor for home use, brings 3 different cup sizes for drinks, iq one touch button makes it very easy to make smoothies with the touch of 1 button, the food processor is great for chopping small amount of food, not great help if you are trying to make large amount of food, for that I would go with a bigger processor, still over all great to have at home or office for a quick smoothie or snack!!

I purchased this as an impulse buy and I have used it almost every single day! It is not like any other blender. The innovative options for blending make it so much easier to ensure you blend smoothies to a smooth texture.

Great little machine
Posted by: Robt from: on
Bought this as an upgrade from a smaller Ninja chopper. This is like a smaller version of my larger Ninja Blender. I am impressed with the chop function which leaves food items in chunks and not over processed like other food processers I have owned. Push the desired button once and watch it do the work... Smoothies, Blend, Chop, Pulse and manual on off Glad I bought it.

Cooking With Speed !
Posted by: Dragonhunter281 from: on
The Ninja Nutri Bowl is a wonderful companion piece to the Ninja BlendMax Duo (Model: BL2013) despite some similarities between the two units. The Nutri Bowl allows for a wider range of uses including settings for dough based recipes, cookies, or chopping vegetables for soups or dips. However, both can be used simultaneously to make smoothes and extract nutrients from fruits and vegetables. Physically, the Nutri Bowl is a little bit smaller and more compact that the BlendMax, though it definitely does not lack in power. At 1200 Watts, the Nutri Bowl speeds through any task you throw at it ! Cooking with speed is definitely an understatement ! Inside the box you will note several different accessories including a 32 and 24 oz ninja cup as well as the bigger Nutri Bowl. These were a personal favorite of ours since they are easy to handle and can be used on the go. Complementing these, you will find a plastic dough blade as well as a quad blade. You will also receive a book of 75 recipes that cover wide variety of foods. It covers all the modes of the Nutri Bowl.
On the front of the unit, much like the bigger BlendMax Duo, you will note several modes that are listed in connection with the AutoIQ setting. The AutoIQ setting determines how long each will run; with the setting turned on, each setting will run longer for a more creamy, thinner texture. When the setting is set to no, the results tend to be thicker. There is also a pulse setting that you can manually control. In addition, several of the modes are only available depending on which cup you use. There are small LED lights in the corner of each button to show you which modes are available. As such when you use the 24 or 32 oz cups, only smoothie and extract are allowed. When you use the Nutri Bowl, the Fusion Mix, chop and dough settings are allowed. Their respective times are listed below:
Smoothie (Boost Yes): 60 Seconds
Smoothie (Boost No): 40 Seconds
Extract (Boost Yes): 70 Seconds
Extract (Boost No): 45 Seconds
Fusion Mix (Boost Yes): 56 Seconds
Fusion Mix (Boost No): 20 Seconds
Fusion Chop (Boost Yes): 5 Seconds
Fusion Chop(Boost No): 3 Seconds
Fusion Dough (Boost Yes): 30 Seconds
Fusion Dough (Boost No): 15 Seconds
For a test with our Nutri Bowl, we made a few milkshakes using the pulse setting. Comparing this with the BlendMax Duo, both of the results were fairly equal in consistency. Perhaps one edge the BlendMax Duo has is that it has 3 manual speed selections (Low, Medium, High) over the Nutri Bowl's only pulse setting. However, this is an hardly an issue as both produced the same results even though the Nutri Bowl is listed at 1200 watts versus the 1600 watts of the BlendMax! Quite amazing ! Another test we did was we decided to make the Lemon Pound Cake found in the included recipe book. This was an amazing first time recipe and I recommend it to everyone. After baking two loafs, we found that once we juiced half of the lemon, it was slightly more than 1/8th of a cup, though depending on the size of the lemon, this will naturally vary so keep that in mind. In addition, for the lemon zest we found that the best amount is about 1 teaspoon. This will prevent you from overdoing it since a little zest goes along way, though you may tweak it to your needs. The Nutri Bowl was able to whip the ingredients really well and was extremely fast. Connectively, once it was done, it was a bit difficult to get all of the mixture off the dough blade but this was just a minor inconvenience. The Lemon Pound cake turned out amazing after about 50 minutes or so. The crack on top gave it a nice homemade appearance!
In conclusion, the Nutri Bowl is an amazing companion piece to the BlendMax Duo. With both, you will be able to tackle even the most difficult cooking tasks with ease. However, both are definitely not required. The Nutri Bowl still fulfills most of the tasks needed to create wonderful smoothies and other treats. Washing and storing has been relatively pain free and all the blades and lids are dishwasher safe (top rack only). In the end, I would strongly recommend giving this a shot, especially if you already have the BlendMax Duo or in need of a quality blender for your household.

I wanted to make smoothies and bought a cheap blender which could hardly crush the ice . This blender crushed frozen strawberries 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. pitcher & 2 personal take along cups , 18 & 24 oz. with pop up lids . It has suction cups on the bottom so it doesn't move while in use & comes apart easily for cleaning. I love the clock countdown too & the pitcher seems like a durable bpa free plastic. A small 20 recipe guide is included. This is not your grandmas blender... I love it & cant wait to try more features & recipes.

A great start to a healthier lifestyle...
Posted by: NyVetteGuy from: on
I truly didn't know what I was missing until I started using the Ninja Duo System. Smoothies & Protein shakes to even making fantastic chopped salads, some ideas of which are in the included Nutra Ninja Recipie book.
For a smoothie just fill the included cup with your favorite healthy items such as some banana, strawberries, Greek yogurt, milk and ice, just place the blade assembly on the cup, screw it in tightly and place on the motor base.
(A cool thing about the motor base is it has suction cups on the bottom to keep it from moving) Once on the base just choose the smoothie button and in less than a minute your ingredients are perfectly mixed and you have a great tasting and healthy smoothie. Unscrew the blade assembly and screw on the included spout lid which makes for easy drinking.
With all of the things I can do with the Nutra Ninja my family and I are on the right track to healthier eating.

Its awesome, a great buy for anyone!
Posted by: EnglishD from: Fairborn, OH on
This machine is great. It's a little larger than I imagined but no issue and its not ugly, I thought it would be smaller but it's about the size of a regular blender.
This thing is a beast when it comes to making smoothies. It really does blend everything down.
The bowl works great too. We made a few snacks and the salmon patty recipe today. It really does a good job at chopping and infusing.
Overall this is a great buy. If you're used to $50 blenders and food processors try this. You'd be surprised at how much of a difference a change in diet can make to the way you feel and your overall health.

Excellent performance with a very efficient design
Posted by: TechEnthusiast from: on
The Nutri Ninja blender is an excellent blender / food processor with a lot of functionality.
It has a lot of different settings for a variety of different end results.
It comes with a very useful recipe book with many different good ideas.
It comes with many different blending containers to do a large assortment of different blending projects.
The base has some very strong suction cups to hold it onto your counter.
It is very very loud.
The nutri-bowl container is small.
The “cord storage” area in the base is difficult to use and pretty much useless.
The measurements are on the side of the nutri-bowl instead of the front.
The little “add hole” at the top of the nutri-bowl is so tiny as to be pointless (you could add liquids via this, but little else).
All in all, I was very impressed with the Nutri-Ninja. I used the Nutri-Bowl to crush graham crackers for a cheesecake (not the healthiest use, I know). It managed to pulverize them into a fine powder within 20 seconds on a straight run (no Auto-Boost IQ). The bowl size is small enough that you’re not going to be using this to prep meals for a family of four. For someone who live on their own though, the size is perfectly adequate for small batch cooking.
I used the longer drink containers to make a cranberry-apple smoothie and to make a apple-clementine “extraction.” The Auto-Boost “Extract” setting did an excellent job of finely mincing everything into a thick, but easily drinkable, concoction. I will note though that you really ought to add ice cubes as, even using refrigerated fruit, the resulting drink seems to have warmed up some during the blending process.
I’m looking forward to trying some of the recipes in the book. Not all of them are winners (chopping a salad in a food processor - why?), but enough of them look appealing that I anticipate many weekends experimenting with them.
I would recommend this product.
