    Overall, it makes great smoothies. Blends everything perfectly. The only setback, it is extremely loud! Would have been 5 stars, but too loud, for early mornings.

    This Ninja machine does an excellent job - I use it so often for smoothies using frozen fruit. I end up with a smooth, non-chunky fruit smoothie! It is a VERY LOUD machine, tho! I warn those in the same room before I turn it 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!

    Good Blender, but loud

    The Ninja - Nutri Ninja Nutri Bowl DUO Auto-iQ Boost Blender works well, but let's you know it's working hard. The blending programs are good for mixing smoothie ingredients and automatically pulse to achieve the mixing, but the cat runs away every time we turn this machine on in the morning (cat comes back after a minute to continue her breast though :-)

    I thought this was a good deal but found out why it was on sale. It is very loud but most importantly shortly after using it cup will not stay in place while it is on.

    The Ninja works well and makes great smoothies! Only complaint we have is how loud it can be...other than that it works perfect and has proven to be durable.

    Does a great job chopping veggies, ice and whatever else you like to add to your juice. It is noisy though, more so than my Nutri Bullet. However, I think the Ninja is more powerful and versatile

    This is probably one of the best purchases I have ever made. I use it for all types of different things. It is a tad loud but totally worth listening to for the great consistency in my fruit smoothies.

    I purchased this so that I could have a slightly bigger cup for creating my breakfast smoothies. The AutoIQ is easy to work and I love the consistency of my smoothie. I didn't give it great because it loud as I read in other reviews but I would buy it again.

    No issues with this product. I like it and would recommend it to a friend. Mainly, I like the blender / smoothie maker, dual purpose functionality. The blender doesn't hold that much, but it works for me. It doesn't require a lot of cleaning, which is another plus. I don't use it very much, but whenever I do, it's all good to go. Good price too. Overall happy with this purchase. It's not that quiet and it's not that loud either, by the way. Normal amount of noise for this kind of device.

    I was happy to get great amoothies and juices. But I'm noticing it has started to make harsh grinding noises and will shut off before my drink is complete. It still makes great juice, I just have to hold it so the jar doesn't spin. Once it moves it shuts off.

    I'm impressed with the overall quality of this blender. Everything feels solid and well-built. The motor is strong enough to handle everything I've thrown at it: ice, frozen fruit, even coffee beans (I added them to a breakfast smoothie). I also like the tiered blade used in the blender; having blades at multiple levels is very helpful in ensuring everything is evenly processed. It has super useful, pre-programmed settings that allow you to start the blender, then move on to something else while the blender manages itself. The only shortcoming it has is common with most blenders, the noise. The motor is loud, but I suppose that is to be expected considering the power it has. Overall, I'm very happy with it and would recommend it without hesitation.

    Ninja handles it in one push

    When I openned the box, my first impression was that this is a lot bigger than previous "single cup smoothie makers" I've used before, it looked solid. Besides the Bowl, it included 3 fairly large cups with caps for each of them. On making my first smoothie, I placed ice and water on the bottom of cup, a good amount of frozen fruit, and some yogurt. When I placed it upside down on the NutriNinja NutriBowl Duo's base, my first thought was i'm going to have to run this multiple times, with the ice now on top. I pressed the smoothie button, and was amazed to see the thing quickly set up a countdown timer of around a minute. It varied the cycle length, and by the time it was done the ice was no more and I had a delicious smoothie. My only comment about the process is that the motor was moderately loud as it chopped, but probably not much different than similar products. I anticipate that the NutriBowl feature will allow me to replace my full size blender.

    Surprisingly Versatile Blender

    This is really much more than a smoothie maker. The 32oz 'cup' lets you use in place of a blender in addition to making smooties. The bowl lets you chop and mix dry ingredients. We made cookie dough, brownie dough, bean soup, and a chicken salad in the bowl. It does a nice uniform job of chopping, so you leave things chunky instead of having to pulverize everything. It's powerful enough to get through just about anything and the Auto-IQ really works, you don't have to keep pulsing manually. It's nice having lids for the cups so that you can mix up a smoothie or other blended drink ahead of time. Somehow open containers in our refrigerator seem to alway end up getting spilled. Probably the only downside to this unit is that it is rather loud, but that's a minor inconvenience

    Really Powerful and Imaginative Blender

    The only blender I've used before this unit was a 20 year old GE blender which probably cost 25 dollars. It was like driving a Yugo compared to this Nutri Ninja which is like driving a Tesla. This thing is solid, and unlike my old blender which I had to hold down on the counter with one hand while it was running to keep it from sliding around, the Ninja has rubber suction cups which will keep it right where you place it until you deliberately want to move it. It comes with a beautiful color recipe book with 78 imaginative and healthy recipes. The recipes are so inviting, if you care about your health at all, you'll want to give some of them a try. Before, my breakfast consisted of dropping some corn flakes in a bowl. This morning I woke up to a strawberry banana protein shake from the recipe book. It only took a few minutes with ingredients easy to find at the grocery store. It tasted great and I feel like I'm doing more to stay healthy. Just be warned, The Ninja IS loud, as others have said, especially when crushing ice which it does with amazing ease by the way.

    Insanely Powerful

    Upon un-boxing it was clear this wasn't an ordinary "blender." The unit came with 2-24oz and 1-32oz smoothie cups (the cups from our other Ninja also fit), the bowl, a metal blade and a plastic blade (for the bowl), the base, lids, and a "cookbook" with Ninja ideas. The first thing we did with it was make frozen adult beverages, which is a piece of cake because the very first pre-set button encourages "instant smoothies." The Ninja pulverized ice! We filled a smoothie glass with ice and liquid, screwed on the blender cap, hit the SMOOTHIE button with IQ on and 60 seconds later the beverage was ready and was "slurpee" smooth. No icy chunks at all. Truly impressive. My wife also makes "nutritional smoothies" as well with fruits, juice, ice, vegetables, etc. and they blow away a traditional blender's ability to get it done fast. Unlike our inferior bullet-like purchases, the Ninja doesn't struggle at all. We also tried to make ice-cream "blizzards" but the smoothie cup is the wrong tool. You are better served with a traditional blender pitcher. We did not try in the bowl because we were not sure if the plastic mixing blade or the pre-set settings on the unit were really designed for that application. As for the bowl, we bought a pre-packaged cookie dough mix (14 oz, I think). We were able to mix the entire package and ingredients in the bowl with the plastic mixer blade but to be honest, a regular bowl and a wooden spoon is just as easy. I see the bowl more for "food processor"-type activities like salsas or dips. Because of the insane power of this blender, it comes with suction cups on the bottom--and they are needed! If you don't have a surface to suction the Ninja to you might have problems. I would give 5-stars for performance alone, however, this unit doesn't store all that well. With the multiple blades and accessories, you need to find a dedicated home in your cabinet or pantry to store your Nutri Ninja Nutri Bowl Duo and the loose accessories. We not only needed to shuffle things around in our cupboards, we had to change the height of some shelves...and we've already found ourselves searching for lids at least once. Plus, because of its insane power, this blender makes an insane amount of noise--louder than most blenders. No sneaking off to make a daiquiri after the kids go to bed. Nonetheless, we are very satisfied with the product and would recommend it to others.

    Excellent performance with a very efficient design

    The Nutri Ninja blender is an excellent blender / food processor with a lot of functionality. The pros: 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. The cons: 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.
