      Good Quality But With A Bad Design

      The Ninja Precision 4-Cup Food Processor consists of a motorized base with chambers for two types of food prep - one for "spiralizing” or shredding foods into spaghetti strands - and one that functions more like a food chopper or small food processor. Calling it a 4-cup processor is generous - the spiralizing collection chamber will functionally hold about 3-cups and the food processing chamber functions at more like a 2-cup limit. Ninja’s description suggests that this unit will also slice vegetables but there is no included or available attachment for that function. The spiralizer is designed very poorly. The feed-in chamber is too large (partially In order to allow larger items to be processed), but the capacity of that chamber encourages vegetables to topple over and spin without being processed into the desired ribbons (pictures attached). The chopper chamber is nice, though - it can be fitted with a sharp two-tiered blade (like the ones that come with Ninja blenders) or with a dough blade (but will only mix and knead a pretty small amount of dough). And the processor chamber has a top with a drizzle hole for making dressings and emulsified sauces. The “Quick Assembly” guide appears to suggest that there are five spiralizing disks included with this assembly but only two are provided (I assume the others can be purchased?). I like the base design a lot - definitely a lot more than the ones that come with other small commercial choppers/processors. The base is stabilized on the counter with four small suction cups and that works well. The motor is strong and very fast. All the parts assemble and disassemble easily and intuitively - plus everything fits nicely into the dishwasher. But based on the disaster I experienced with spiralizing, I don’t think this is a useful machine choice.

      I was really looking forward to this and thought my healthy-living wife would love it, but ultimately we were both disappointed. And I don’t mean to be harsh on the product, It looked good on paper, but after several attempts to use the NN310 it came across as being only so-so at its advertised tasks and ultimately not worth the cost or effort. Though not the featured capability, the precision processor ended up proving the most useful to us, but even that was mostly limited to things we really want to pulverize. The NN310 has no speed adjustments, just on, off, or pulse. Personally I found that insufficient for reliable results of the expected shredded-ness. One or two pulses was rarely enough, and a 3rd pulse proved often to take things just a bit too far -- I just found myself consistently getting too little or too much shred/chop to justify the effort of even trying to use the NN310. No doubt it was powerful and fast, once setup, but the end result could hardly be said to be saving us any time as we could easily more precisely cut the veggies by hand than the unpredictable result we got with the NN310. I actually found myself throwing some of the resultant veggies away or trying to feed them to our kids’ guinea pig because the result wasn’t close enough to what we wanted to achieve. Again, good on paper and in pincriple, but the only thing I can see the processor being reliably good for is salsa, smoothie-esque mixes, or anything else you literally want to beat/blend to a pulp. But if you’re going for just “chopped” or something in-between -- good luck -- I just couldn’t get that result reliably and it was more effort and time trying to prep, clean, and bend the NN310 to my will than it was to just chop the veggies by hand in the first place. The spiralizer -- in promo videos this looks cool but, again, I could not get reliably usable results. I usually ended up with crescent shaped shreds rather than anything resembling a connected spiral/noodle. I tried potatoes, sweet potatoes, apples, cucumbers, carrots, etc. I got a better sense of the needed pressure as I used it but even so the results were just not that good and I ended up frustrated and tossing out quite a bit of veggie waste. And the amount of time it took to setup the spiralizer, prepare the veggie/fruit to be the right size, spiralize, remove, rinse, and repeat… for each component (that’s what the manual suggests) proved to be pretty cumbersome overhead for a task as seemingly simple as just spiralizing some veggies. I’ll continue to try to find some use for this but after just a couple of days my wife had relegated the NN310 to the dark back corner of the bottom cupboard shelf -- the place where unused kitchen appliances go that seem too good to throw away but are too useless to actually keep handy. The NN310 seems an awkward attempt to create a small niche food processor and spiralizer that just ends up getting in its own way more than it actually helps with the desired task. Except for pulverizing things to paste in the processor bowl, there was never a time we used the NN310 feeling like we had actually saved any time or even achieved what we had set out to achieve. It came with a dough blade as well, and maybe that is something the NN310 would be good at, but that’s not a feature we were looking for or even tried.

      The Ninja Precision Processor is another great product with the build quality that I have come to expect from Ninja. Powerful motor, sturdy construction, and love the suction cup feet that keep the processor from dancing away while you are chopping up your dinner vegies! Judo Chop your way through loads of vegetables with your Ninja, it makes quick work of dinner tasks. An addition to this food processor is the design of Feed Chute that I appreciate for the ability to press your food into the system easily and safely. Our first run with the Ninja was the Strawberry Mint Sorbet, Kid gets first vote on our initial creation. Simple recipe and instructions. In minutes we were sipping on a great afternoon refreshment. Second creation was the Zucchini Spaghetti with basil and sweet peas. Great Stuff! Ninja includes a delightful Recipe book with thirty delicious recipes to get you going and familiarize you with the many tasks you can perform in your kitchen with the Ninja. Well written, easy to follow, Kudos. On a side note, my better half loves its decorative appeal sitting on the kitchen counter next to our Ninja blender. I like that the design and dimensions do not take a large area on the kitchen counter. Ninja goes beyond basic vegie chopping, you can process your own spaghetti or Fettuccine pasta as well kneading dough. Use the Spiralizer accessories to make “Veggie Noodles” to make some veggie plates. Great Kitchen Helper and highly recommend for those who enjoy adventures in delicious creations.

      Great little processor that shreds too!

      I decided to try out this product because I already have a large food processor of a different brand. It works well, but I wanted a smaller model for those smaller jobs that wouldn’t be a pain to clean. After my experience with two previous Shark/Ninja products I chose this. I really like my Shark Vacuum and my Ninja blender will leave my hands after I draw my last breath. I was unsure if the stringer blades would be of use to me or not, but figured what the heck. I’ll give it a try, and if I don’t care for that feature I’ll still have a smaller food processor that would hopefully be easier to manage and clean than my behemoth. After unboxing (and being raised in a germ-o-phobic German Catholic household) I wanted to give all the parts a good wash before using. This brought about my first disappointment. The cylinder that is used when stringing/shredding veggies has a three lobed guide that runs down into it to stabilize your potatoes, zucchini, cucumbers and the like as you shred. It is non-removable which makes it very difficult to clean. They do include a brush to assist with the job, but I feel strongly that this part should twist off for much easier cleaning. As a food processor, my first trial was with some fresh roasted pumpkin. The holidays are coming and I like to have a good stash in the freezer for making breads, pies, etc. Due to it size, your average sugar pumpkin will need to be done in 2-3 batches. Totally within my expectations. On the first batch, I think I had it a bit overloaded. The Ninja has plenty of power to puree anything, but if you get too much pumpkin in it you might have a couple of chunks that wind up “floating” on top of the load and have to push them down and restart. After that it was smooth sailing…..and velvety smooth pumpkin puree. So then I washed up the lower processor portion and got ready to string up some zucchini. You attach the lower bin, slide in the receiving cup, set the blade disc on that and then attach the upper column with its hard to clean lobes. It zipped right through the zucchini creating spaghetti-like strands in an instant. With its capacity, you’ll likely fill the receiving cup after one average sized zucchini and that’s to be expected. I tossed the strands with a little vinegar, sugar and steak spice; then placed in the refrigerator overnight to flavor. The next day I had a delicious and healthy “Spaghetti Salad”. Nom nom nom. In summary, as a smaller capacity food processor this thing rocks! The Ninja does a very good job at stranding veggies also. And it does both at a reasonable price point. The only real drawback is the clean-ability of the veggie chute. I strongly believe that a twist and lock removable top would be a huge benefit.

      Spiralizer works well & is more fun than expected

      Posted

      Summary: A well-made food chopper, with two main modes of use - a regular chopper, and a "spiralizer" that makes, basically, spaghetti out of your vegetables. While the chopper is pretty standard, the spiralizer is lots of fun to play with and makes attractive-looking "pasta" out of your vegetables. Overall, sharper, faster and tougher than several other choppers I've used. Introduction: I've used several choppers and food processors over the years, including Black & Decker, Cuisinart and Pampered Chef. Up until I got the 'Ninja', the Pampered Chef hand chopper was actually my favorite - it was small, easy-to-use, and super-easy to clean up (toss the bucket and the blade in the dishwasher and get on with things). The good: The bins, blades and tops are all well-made and solid. When used as a chopper, the Ninja chops things pretty fine - think brunoise or minced, not chopped or diced. This is something to keep in mind, because this particular kit only comes with one blade set, so there isn't an option to get larger cuts from it. The good news is that it minces quickly and consistently - one of the gripes I've had with other food processors is that the cut pieces are inconsistently sized; not an issue here. Also works well for making fruit smoothies, though I don't recommend putting frozen fruit in there - it makes a terrible noise (and will dent your blades). When used as a spiralizer, well, that's where the fun starts. This kit comes with two of the spiralizing blades, "spaghetti" and "fettuccini." Either one will fill the bin with strings of vegetable that, frankly, look and cook just like pasta. My first experiment was with zucchini, which it cheerfully "spiralized" with the skin on; I've subsequently used it with sweet potatoes and butternut squash (make sure to remove the skin first!) with great success. The bad: The collecting bin for spiralizing could stand to be bigger - basically, it really limits how much of a vegetable you can spiralize at once. Figure a 3" inch section of zucchini or whatever you're spiralizing will fill the bin, forcing you to take the top off, remove the blade plate, dump the bin, and re-assemble. Spiralizing always leaves a small section of un-sliced vegetable behind, which has to be removed before the next piece can be chopped. Ninja makes six different spiralizing blades, but you only get two in this set.

      lo-Carb zucchini pasta maker marvel!!

      I love pasta, and I also avoid carbs as much as I can. Zucchini pasta is the answer to my prayers, best of both worlds for me. Buying the zucchini pasta already made from the store has been expensive and I find myself tossing it out more often then I can use it. Enter the Ninja 4 cup precision processor with auto-spiralizer!!!! This has been a great food processor for me. I can buy my zucchini whole now and with minimal effort, I can create my own pasta from it very easily. Ninja has provided many different options with this processor. Its modular design allows you to create a great deal of meals (they even give you 30+ ideas in a nice booklet). You can make the aforementioned lo-carb pasta, or dice up some onions, tomatoes, apples, nuts, and so much more. Included are two different blade discs for different types of foods that you might want to chop up. A bunch more discs are available to purchase as well it you would like. Clean up has been a breeze as well. You can put most of the parts in the top shelf of your dish washer and they always come out clean and ready for my next meal. I have been enjoying trying out the different meal ideas that they provided in the booklet and my kids have loved the new things that I am able to create with this food processor.

      Another great Ninja in a compact size...

      We already have a line up of Ninja products because we love the craftsmanship, aesthetics, and performance, but definitely wanted something in a smaller size that could get the job done without sacrificing. This precision processor does just that. When we first took everything out of the box it was a bit overwhelming because of the accessories and attachments. It seemed a bit much for such a small appliance and I couldn't really figure it out perfectly without reading the instructions. I am not one for reading instructions because I'm one of those people.... But after taking the time to do things right I was quite impressed and had my wife put this thru her full kitchen test. She immediately fell in love with it and says that it makes cooking that much easier and fun. The spiralizer was better than I expected as I have never used one and was quite skeptical at first. After placing some squash and cucumbers into the spiralizer I was excited to get a fresh and appetizing looking salad of vegatables. It was so easy, quick, and made it fun. We then chopped some fresh onions in the chopper attachment and did not shed one tear. Amazing! It has simple controls with only two buttons, Start/Stop and Pulse which need no explanation. It comes equipped with suction cups on the bottom to hold it in place while in use and is small enough to leave on the countertop if you so wish. It has multiple blade attachments for both the chop and spiralizer accessories. The chopper has an opening flip up to add liquids while chopping, blending, or pureeing which I have yet to use but am looking forward to this when I start my liquid fast. So excited to have something so convenient and practical to use for everyday in the kitchen. Definitely lives up to the Ninja standard and worth every penny....

      Bigger More Powerful with Spiralizer

      This Ninja set is the usual well-built sturdy, easy-to-clean countertop appliance that this company is known for. The newer models are moving away from the motor-on-top design. This one has a solid base with a powerful 400 watt motor. It is very easy to put the two base bowls on and off into locked and unlocked positions. Both the regular chop/process bowl and the spiralizer bowl has a quick-release button to unlock and lock the tops for easy access. The chop section top has a little port to add fluids to without having to remove the top. There are seperate push buttons on the base for pulse and steady motor control. Of course the chop/process bowl and blades do the usual fast and efficient work on your ingredients. That bowl has an included dough-mixing non-metal "blade" for mixing and making dough. Butter added had to be quite soft as with even the power of the Ninja motor it was unable to "whip" butter that was still semi-hard from being in the freezer. I'm thinking it's more suited to adding dough ingredients a little at a time. The spiralizer was pretty easy to use and made short work of a few carrots. The unit comes with two "blade" discs, one for spaghetti-sized "noodles" and one for fettuccine size. There are other size blades available. The carrot spirals made with the spaghetti blade were rather short (maybe 2") when compared to the ones you might get on the side of your plate at a Thai place, but it worked well and worked quickly. I am looking forward to making hash browns with raw potato spirals.
