    Can't imagine a better blender for the price

    I've had several blenders over the years, the most recent a Cuisinart, mostly in the $50-$60 price range. They are all in the garbage or on a thrift store shelf by now. After reading reviews, I decided to spend a little more and wow it has been money well spent. The jump in quality that small investment buys is apparent in every detail of this blender. I've been really surprised by just how well-built this thing is for the money. Everything about it feels really solid and well-made, and all of the parts fit together snugly. There is plenty of power for making smoothies with completely frozen fruit and all those blades pulverize ice easily. The front panel buttons have a nice positive feel and the panel itself is easy to clean. I love the locking lid but use the pour spout only for adding additional liquids during blending. The blending pitcher is easy to clean (I have yet to put it in the dishwasher) and soap rinses away easily. It locks onto the base with a satisfying and positive click. A nice touch is that the removable blade shaft fits over a fairly tall spindle so it doesn't fall out every time you tilt the pitcher (but I still recommend holding it in place when you pour.) If you like lots of choices or have a need for timers or dozens of speeds, this may not be the best choice for you. I've always been a bit of a minimalist in that area (my Bonavita coffeemaker has exactly one button), so the "3 speed with pulse" model is perfectly adequate for me. I'm very happy with this blender purchase and highly recommend it if you can spend a little more money to take the next step on a better blender. I can't imagine really needing a Blendtec or Vitamix for home use with this option available.

    Rivals the Vitamix, at one-fifth the cost

    This is a GREAT blender that rivals my much more expensive Vitamix. I’ve taken a break from my Vitamix 5200, which retails for 5 times the cost of this blender, to test this one out for a week. I love it! It gives my Vitamix a run for the money. Here are some observations: For chopping, this blender is impressive. It looks so much like a food processor that I tried chopping an onion, and got acceptable results. I would absolutely use this for that. (The Vitamix can’t do this at all.) For ice crushing, YES! Yes, yes, yes. Snow in blazingly fast time. Sno-cones, margaritas, whatever, this blender has that application covered. Fantastic results, far better than the Vitamix. For pulverizing, I thought it was very good. This was the area that the Vitamix outshone the Ninja, but I think the Ninja did just fine. In my homemade jalapeño-coleslaw dressing, the blender didn’t quite get all the jalapeño pulverized, and there were little chunks still in the dressing. The Ninja had a little trouble pulverizing 2 large bunches of kale, and I had to stop the blender a few times to use a scraper to push the leaves down. I also needed to add some water to aid in the blending. The leaves ended up rather smoothly pulverized, although I don’t think they were quite as fine as in the Vitamix. I love how the blades remove completely from the pitcher every single time; it not only makes it easier to scrape out all the food from the blender but also to get it perfectly clean. The Vitamix always ends up with food stuck under the blades, and if it’s something like hummus, it’s really hard to get it clean. So the design on the blades in the Ninja is brilliant. Be careful, though: those blades are sharp. I managed to to slice my hands open on two separate occasions while trying to put them in or take them out of the dishwasher. Seriously, having tried this blender, I can’t see recommending that anyone spend the extra money for a Vitamix. This is a really nice blender.

    Ninjas are usually quiet...

    But a loud Ninja was the least of my worries as it does one heck of a good job at making things that were once in a solid form, into a liquid form. I actually feel a bit bad for using it at 2:00 AM for that late night smoothie, because I know my neighbors are cringing at how loud this monster is, but I can't let that stop me from making Strawberry Lassies or Strawberry Banana Smoothies when I really have to have one. This blender does what it says it does, blends. The only minor issue is that no matter how long or how fast you let it run, you'll never get a "perfectly" smooth blend (but it IS smooth). There will be chunks of something in it, whether it be banana, strawberries, ice, it's still there. That's really not an issue however as it does a great job, and quickly, at blending what I need and I'm not picky on how the results turn out. It's an attractive high quality and sturdy appliance, and the base is much lighter than I expected it to be, so moving it around isn't an annoyance. It's also very easy to assemble and disassemble for cleaning. You're obviously reading this because you're on the fence about buying one, but just go for it. I think you'll like having a Ninja around the house. And of course each time I use it, I can't help but rap: Go Ninja, Go Ninja, Go! Go Ninja, Go Ninja, Go! Go, Go, Go, Go!

    This blender is a BOSS!

    For the last couple of years, I have been making veggie smoothies, because you know, health. They are gross, but necessary for my health. In the past, it would take me at least 5-6 minutes for the smoothie to blend in my ol' trusty Cuisinart. I would have to stir and stir before magically, everything was blended to perfection. I couldn't justify spending $$$$ on a high dollar blender, because it's a blender and I'd prefer to spend my discretionary income on something more sustainable, like shoes (sarcasm). Lately, my old blender has been heating up quickly and the motor gives off the "I am about to die" smell. So, off I went to the great internet highway in search of blender reviews. I stumbled upon this blender and read the review located near the top, which made me chuckle. I took the plunge and ordered it. WOW, it blends like a freaking boss! It blended everything (avocado, spinach, bananas, blueberries, ice, other gross stuff) in seconds. No longer will I have to retreat to my spoon arsenal to get everything blended. This sucker blends like a champ and I love the pour spout, no green gross sad spinach stains on my counter. HOORAY! If you make smoothies and don't want to shell out big money, this blender is for you! For the money, it's a great deal!

    Much better than the competition

    I was undecided between this and the Nutri Bullet until I did some research. I found many, many reviews including you tube videos that said that the Nutri Bullet leaks from the gasket area. I did not find any that said that about the Ninja. Having already had a regular blender that leaked a little, I did not want that to happen again, especially not at that price range. When I went to look in the store at the two products, I was shocked at how little the other blender's "pitcher" is and how little it would hold. I like to use 2 cups of spinach plus many other ingredients to make breakfast smoothies and the other brand would not even hold just the spinach from the way it looked. So, I bought the ninja. I am glad that I did. Now I can see why it doesn't leak- because the bottom of the pitcher does not come apart. It's all one piece for the entire pitcher which is nice because it will never leak. It also makes it very easy to clean because the food doesn't have anywhere to get stuck. Very powerful blender that works very well!

    Great for juicing and crushing ice

    I had originally had a Kitchenaid mixer that had seen better days after I used it until it was on its last leg. I was extremely happy with my Kitchenaid and dreaded replacing it; but luckily I had geek squad protection and was approved for an exchange due to Norma wear and tear of my kitchenaid. He new one I wanted was unavailable in store, so I had to special order it. I was starting a juicing diet to loose some unwanted weight and didn't want it to throw off my diet schedule so while I waited patiently for my new kitchenaid diamond edition mixer, I purchased this gem thinking I'd just return this one when my new kitchenaid arrived. I was so wrong! I fell in love with this mixer!!! It was safer to use with a locking lid, easy to keep clean, would stay on the counter safely mixing without me holding the mixer, and it even chopped ice without a hitch! I couldn't believe I was about to cancel my other order for my kitchenaid that happened to be more expensive, that matched my other kitchen appliances, and that had never let me down in the past for this ninja. I am extremely happy with this! Great for making cocktails, chopping ice, making juices and smoothies, and would highly recommend it for anyone! I would also recommend geek squad protection of course, because I know how much best buy backs their products with the plan even more so than the manufacturer offers. Hope this review helps!

    After our old blender gave up the ghost, went on the hunt for a solid replacement in the under $100 category, with the primary function being to make healthy and delicious smoothies. Went through 2 other blenders that were both returned (1 had an extreme toxic plastic smell (Oster), the other sounded like a Jack hammer and dentist drill had a baby (Hamilton Beach); before taking a chance on the Ninja. This one checked off almost all the boxes, and upon unboxing, it became apparent that this was well designed, and at 1000watts, it's a real workhorse. Pros: Well made, high wattage, fits easily under counter space, canister/Jar fits in the fridge easily, easy cleanup, excellent performance, moderate to standard noise level (nothing offensively loud). Smoothies taste amazing with the Ninja, we're fans of the brand now. Cons: plastic jar (like 95% off blenders in this price range, so I guess it's the "new normal"). Could have a sexier design, something art deco or retro would be lovely. But it gets the job done, no fuss, no muss. This is a great unit, smoothies are creamy and lush, we nicknamed it "the Terminator" for it's awesome power crushing performance.

    Purchased blender online on June 4, 2017. I only used this blender twice a week to make smoothies. Works great for crushing Ice. On July 5th 2017,(31 days including time for delivery) one of the plastic bottom corner piece of the blender jar broke off. This corner piece is screwed into the base of the plastic blender jar with a phillips head screw. It is my perception of a poor design. I wash this blender by hand because i believe the heat from the dishwasher might be too hot for the plastic blender jar and cover, even though the owners manual says it's dishwasher safe. I have taken very special care in cleaning and storing of this product. I called BestBuy trying to resolve this issue but with no clear result. Got the standard "send it back to the manufacturer...Sorry can't help you."
