    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.

    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.

    Blends well, but so very loud

    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!

    I was very excited to try the Nutri Ninja Bowl Duo system. The components were packaged very nicely with plenty of cardboard boxes, partitions and warnings of sharp blades in the packaging. Also Included: A user friendly Quick Assembly Guide, A well Written and Illustrated Instruction Guide Book and A Colorful easy to understand Recipe Booklet that has 75 recipes. The first Item I used (after reading all the safety Instructions) was the 24 oz Nutri Ninja Cup. I made my favorite smoothie using: Kale, Frozen Kiwi and Apple Juice. I put them into the Cup following the loading Tips reference in the recipe book. The Cup has measurement markings and a Maximum Liquid line so that the glass is not overfilled. The cup has a blade assembly that screws onto the cup and than locks onto the top of the motor base. On the front of the unit is the control panel with multiple easy to read buttons. I selected the Smoothie Button and left the Auto IQ Boost setting on. Wow was that fun! The unit automatically stopped after a minute of doing a series of burst pulse mixes and a final longer mix. My drink was Perfectly Blended and a proper serving size. I replaced the blade assembly with the Spout Lid and found it comfortable to drink from. Awesome! My next drink was with the 32 oz Cup. This time I used Frozen Strawberries, Frozen Mangos, Fresh Pineapple Chunks and Juice using the Frozen Drink Setting and again leaving the Auto IQ on. WOW WOW WOW, again a perfect blend automatically. I love The Auto IQ Boost Settings and The 24 & 32 oz cups. No more making too large of a drink for me!!! Next I used the Nutri Bowl to make the Cauliflower Rice from the recipe book. Before adding the ingredients I locked the bowl into place on the motor base. It makes a small clicking sound when the bowl is locked in. Part of the cauliflower, garlic and cilantro are put into the 3 cup bowl that has a multiple blade spindle that sets into the middle of the bowl. Once all the ingredients are in the bowl the Lid locks onto the bowl and I selected the Auto IQ Boost NO button and then the Fusion Chop button. The unit did a few pulses and stopped on its own. I then added the remaining ingredients according to the recipe and used the Fusion Chop button again. In seconds all the ingredients were finely chopped and ready to be added to the rest of the ingredients to be cooked on the stove. In under 15 minutes I prepared, cooked and plated my great tasting food! The bowl doesn't have a Handle so I found it somewhat awkward to hold when removing from the motor base. Then it got a little messy getting the blade out of the bowl. Since the ingredients are so finely chopped it should be removed over a plate or paper towel. After cleaning the bowl and its blade I used the bowl to chop dates for making Date Bars. I find Dates are sticky and hard to chop with a traditional knife. When using the bowl I found that chopping just 1 cup of dates at time worked best for getting an even cut quickly. I was thrilled to have all my dates chopped so quickly. I'll never hand chop dates again! I also chopped chicken, apples and onions for other recipes in the cookbook, I love the results of the chopped food! I wish the bowl had more of an indentation or a small handle for a better grip. It also has a small opening in the lid with a sliding cover, not sure what that is intended for, I have shaky hands so I can't use it for adding liquid. I really enjoyed trying recipes form the book. The Nutri Bowl also has a Dough Blade for mixing Bread and Cookies, I'll be trying them next. The cups, bowl and blades are dishwasher safe so clean up was easy. If I could give it 4.5 starts then I would.
