    Good Value

    Bought this to replace a GNC blender which was great, but we wore it out after two years! Ninja makes a good product and so far we like it. It's a sturdy model and my daughter likes the mixer with the long mixing blade for the things she likes to make. Most of them are thicker batter-like things and this long blade seems to help mix things without having that 'void' of air that many mixers get where nothing is being blended. While not Earth-shattering, there are some things to know about these. First, is that these are pretty big and bulky mixers. The suction cups on the bottom are great to keep steady, but if you store this under a low cabinet with the mixer attached it may be tricky to get out to use. Also, it is LOUD! But again, to be expected as this is a big, powerful mixer. The cups and tops are a bit bulky and heavier than the competitors but still manageable. The biggest complaint I wrote into Ninja for are the lids. While they look sleek and modern, the opening to drink from is long and narrow. Not round and wide like others. So when you have a thicker drink it is tough to drink quickly. Fluid does not flow out well because they put in a useless pinhole air vent in the middle of the lid. Contents 'chug' out because it has to keep drawing air in through the same opening. I drilled out the vent hole and made it larger and works much better. But now the tiny rubber plug does not cover the larger opening so I have to be gentle when shaking this with the lid cover closed to avoid bits of liquid coming out of the vent. But a tradeoff well worth it for me.

    great. a little noisy but it IS a blender. Never used the biggest "party margarita" container so not sure how easy to use and clean it is. i use the largest personal container everyday and love it. I cram it with fruits and veggies I would never eat, throw some seeds and fiber in there and i'm healthy and regular. Only complaint is that the lids SUCK for the personal. They are well intended and they hold well (i wouldn't trust it in your book bag or something) but unless you're making a watery juice drink and not something thicker, they're impossible to drink out of. However I bought it for the powerful blending action. I would not say it fully crushes seeds (flax, chia) but i throw full apples and kale in there and it's great. Wish I could trade the lids for a second blade. Or get two of the large containers. All minor points.

    We purchased this blender in the last Black Friday sale, and it has been working perfect so far. It is very powerful and can blend very finely. The capacity is excellent. We regularly make and enjoy fruit smoothie, using the "Ultra Blend" button. It is convenient that it works automatically by just pressing a desired mode button. The large cap capacity can serve the whole family. It is powerful enough to blend frozen fruits very finely. We also use the blender for various cooking projects. For example, we made Japanese Tofu, which is a challenging task for a blender. To make Tofu, soaked soy beans needs to be ground very finely. The Nutri Ninja blender was very powerful and perfectly did it. In addition, the large capacity allowed us to grind them in one shot.

    I practically use this thing every day. I like that it has a single, double and pitcher size blenders. Easy to use. I love the autoIQ button. With this I just press the button once and do something else in the kitchen as it does it’s preset program rather than having to push the button several times to get it nice and smooth. They come out perfect everytime. Never any chunks or blocks of ice. I use it for protein shakes, fruit smoothies. I’ve used watermelon, almonds, bananas, ice, peanut butter, spinach, kale. I haven’t found anything this won’t blend. I thought about getting the really expensive brand but this is a much cheaper blender and it does not disappoint!

    I actually like this blender and use it way more than my last one. Only thing I don't like is the size. Our kitchen is small so we need counter space. But it really makes up for the size issue with alllllllll the functions and options. I really like the single cup. My post workout smoothies come out perfect, no matter what I put in it. The larger container has a fancy top, a little confusing. I like the power button and the timer. Let's you know how long you've been blending. Helps me perfect my technique. It's easy to clean. Not too loud but it ain't quiet. The ingredient book, recipe suggestions is thick and has a lot of options. Overall I love it. If it were a little smaller and a little cheaper it would be 6 stars.

    Ninja replaces Oster.

    Since 1970, when my dad taught me how to make daiquiris in a blender, I have been a loyal user of Oster. In recent years my sons have tried to talk me into getting a Ninja but I stuck with my Oster until recently when I broke the glass container. I was now in the market for a new blender and a salesman at Best Buy was very helpful in pointing out the features of the Ninja, one of which was the PLASTIC container. However it wasn't until I came home and began making smoothies prior to our workouts that I really appreciated the Ninja. I especially like its ice-crushing and pre-timed features for smoothies. I am now sold on the Ninja blender.

    Originally purchased for use at home so I could replace my NutriiBullet, but I took it to work and fell in love. Now I have my own office with a door so it's convenient to use there. It's loud but it's worth the noise - Grind those ingredients to your desire because it has so many settings. Todays menu - greens, frozen strawberries, mangos, blackberries, banana, protein, cologen, super seed fiber and 2 cups of water. Tasted like a malted milkshake. Get this blender and you will not be disappointed. Best Buy is the only place to buy your electronic products, I've never had a problem returning defective products so shop with confidence.

    I've been searching for a replacement to our old blender which was very outdated by today's standards. I've read the reviews on the Ninja blenders for some time doing my homework. After seeing this one during the Blk Friday sale I purchased it for a great buy. Wow, what a great kitchen appliance.We've used this to make smoothies and it's wonderful. It blends the fruit without difficulty & truly makes them smooth. And the added small blender cups/containers help with blending on the go.

    I use my blender daily for making smoothies and so far, so good. The motor is very strong and has turned all fruits and vegetables into a nice liquid form. I dropped in sliced apples into my blender and the apples turn into a nice liquid. In addition to the apples, spinach, coconut milk in my smoothie; I also use ginger in my smoothie. The blender works very well at mixing all the ingredients for a nice consistent flavor considering the strong flavor of ginger. It's easy to wash. I love the Auto IQ function where the machine has a short lapse of not spinning to allow the liquids to drop from the cup to the bottom and then it begins mixing again. Smart machine!

    I have never had a Ninja before, but I have used a couple of other blender/juicer types like nutribullet. I was quite impressed on the power and ease of use. I love the individual cup sizes like the 24oz and 32 oz cups. Any smaller than that, I found it hard to fit the fruit vegetables and ice all in the same cup. My only complaint really is that many of the cup sizes are not compatible with every blender. They have different sizes with different fixtures so that one cup from another model won't fit on a different model. Some do and some don't. If you want to buy a new cup size, there will be notations as to whether it will fit your model or not.

    Does exactly what they claim. Pulverizes everything from ice to frozen fruit to seeds and stems. With the right mix of liquid and frozen fruit, you can get smoothies that have a consistency between soft serve and regular ice cream. Experiment; if it comes off a tree or vine, or out of the ground, you can make it into a smoothie. Some of the really healthy things that don't taste so hot by themselves can be included with your favorite fruits and still produce a great tasting smoothie. Also perfect for protein drinks. But it is loud; it can be heard throughout house when making early morning breakfast smoothies.

    This Ninja is great for making smoothies. I had a less powerful model. This is a big improvement. The suction cups on the bottom work very well in keeping it stable on the counter. I use the big pitcher as well as the large cup. The two blades are great. I can use the base twice in a day without having to wash anything. If you have limited counter space, keep in mind this does not have a small footprint. Also with the pitcher in place, it may not fit between your countertop and the bottom of your cabinets.

    We had an old Kitchen Aid Blender that lasted us about 4 years, but never made a real, quality smoothie. I always wanted a VitaMix as I have used them before, and they are amazing, but I wasn't in love with the price. Hands down this is one of the best blenders I have ever used. The smoothies are so smooth and almost no seeds. It makes awesome alcoholic beverages as well. It is very loud, but for the quality of the drink produced I would say WHO cares! :) One of my favorite purchases this year! If you are thinking about it, just get it already!! I also have the ninja coffee maker, that is amazing as well! :) Keep up the great work Ninja!

    I've always wanted to transition to a healthier morning routine, and this device has been instrumental in executing that dream. The smoothies that I'm able to create have almost no "grittiness" that you get with lesser quality blenders, and they taste great. The machine works exactly as advertised, and I could not be happier. Great recipe suggestions as well. The convenience of the single serve and multi-serve containers is great for speeding up your morning routine and getting out the door as well. Cleanup is about as expected, but less arduous than other blenders I've used.

    I purchased this item with the intentions of making fruit & yogurt smoothies for my elderly mother who frequently does not express much interest in food. It blends frozen and fresh fruit with Chia seeds and yogurt into a thick milkshake textured concoction that she readily consumes. I find that I can also blend in medications and nuts/raisins/cranberries and whatever else imagination provides into something she enjoys drinking and provides nutrition. Her home visit hospice nurses also provide additional ideas and said they would suggest this to other caregivers for their patients.

    I purchased this because the unit's base will use the blender or the bullet type smoothie container. Just as it says "Duo". I also read that the unit is very "LOUD"...if the units of those people who stated that theirs is loud and theirs is as loud as mine????...is understatement. They should have listed it as supersonic screaming! Mine vibrates pretty violently, still haven't determined if this is the way the unit is or there is a bearing out. However, it does mix very well, especially for skins like Cherries and pieces of pineapple. I can only give it 2 stars because of the loudness.

    I have been using one of the bullet systems for as long as I can remember. This was a birthday gift for my wife and boy am I happy with it! The bullet has not seen the light of day ever since the Ninja adorned our kitchen counter. From its timing features to blend options, from its tall sturdy containers to the large blender jug, there is not a single complaint. Crushes through ice and frozen vegetables/fruits with ease and in 30 seconds for a smooth flowing beverage. We could not be happier and can't recommend it enough.

    Awesome blender, very powerful. Used it to make smoothies using frozen fruits. No problem, handles it effortlessly. Surprisingly, it is quieter than our previous blender. Love the preprogrammed one touch buttons. Hit the button for smoothies and it pulses then full blend mode. Don't have to think about it, just fill, select the smoothie button, walk away. It's done! Quality built as well. Solid product. I have to admit, I had my doubts seeing that it started as an infomercial product, but I am pleased with it.

    I purchased this blender so that I could make my daily green smoothies in one shot. The pro was that it was able to accommodate all of my ingredients, however, the end result was mediocre. The next day, i decided to reduce the amount of ingredients to the same amount used in the smaller ninja. The smaller container still did a better job blending in my opinion. Since I already own a smaller ninja with auto IQ, I returned the full size to the store. Guess I'll have to put out the money for the Vitamix...

    My wife makes protein shakes. EVERY day. She kills blenders. After a few months they get louder, or sound uneven. Then they die. We have tried many brands and it has always been the same, six dead blenders in about 8 years. This blender seems up to the task, any task. After six months of daily use, it still works exactly as if new. Has all the features you could want and multiple containers for different jobs. With a three year warranty, I think we’ve made the right choice.
