    Good for smoothies and frozen drinks

    This is my first experience with one of these appliances. I have a good quality large blender that has been used for many years. But it is large and not so easy to clean. As we have those healthy smoothies often, it was time to try something different. Time for the Nutri Ninja! Pros: A strong 1000 watt motor. This has chopped up everything we have thrown at it. The ice in blender drinks is chopped very fine with no large pieces left behind. Definitely a great bar machine for those frozen drinks! A strong suction cup to stick this blender to your countertop. Once you attach it, it is not moving anywhere. The Auto IQ adjusts the blend of the contents in the cup. It will pulse to provide well blended smoothies and frozen drinks. Very convenient and less dishes to clean. With the large blender you need to put in all the ingredients; blend the contents; pour the contents into another container; clean the blender; and, clean the container. That is 5 steps. With the Nutri Ninja you put in all the ingredients; blend the contents; take the container by putting the lid on; and, wash it later. That is 4 steps. And one less thing to wash! Smaller footprint than a regular blender. This leaves more counter space available. Very important for most of us. Cons: The provided 18 oz. and 24 oz. containers are best for one person. We did order the 32 oz. container so we could use this for both of us. This appliance is loud! It is only on for maybe 60 seconds tops but it is very loud. Conclusion: It makes a difference on how you pack the contents into the blender. Be sure to read the instructions on how to layer the contents for smoothies and other blender drinks. It will make a difference. With the small footprint and effective blending of smoothies and frozen blender drinks, it is a good addition. If you do not want a large blender and drink these types of drinks often, you will not be disappointed. I think adding the 32 oz. cup is a good choice for anyone except a person on living on their own. You may often want to blend a drink for more than one person.

    Amazing, but loud

    This blender is very solid and ready to go right out of the box after washing the blending cups and blades. The recipe book has 75 recipes to get you started. I love hummus, so I first tried that recipe. I have made hummus before using a blender and another time using a food processor. Previous results were okay, but the Nutra Ninja Auto IQ did an amazing job. While my previous attempts with other tools were just fair with lumpy results, the Nutra Ninja made it smooth consistent. The result was as good as anything I have purchased at the grocery store or at a restaurant! I just hit the Auto IQ button and it went to work. It starts by pulsing and letting the ingredients fall before starting again. It does this in ever increasing frequency and then finishes with 20 second of straight blending. My next attempt was a yogurt smoothie. I didn't follow a recipe this time. I just threw in some things I like and let the blender go to work. Once again, smooth and drinkable through a straw, no lumps like an ordinary blender. Lastly, I made the carrot soup recipe. This required a little planning and a few ingredients I didn't have on hand, so I had to go find some of the ingredients. Everything had to be cooed and cooled before blending, but once again, the results were perfect. Previously I had used an immersion blender for making this type of soup, but the Nutra Ninja beat it by a mile! Clean-up is super easy. There aren't a lot of parts to take apart like a regular blender or food processor, so it only took a few minutes to wash everything. I love that the blending cups have lids you can drink through. Perfect for soups and smoothies on the go. Just unscrew the blade and screw on the lid. Easy! My only complaint is that it is obnoxiously noisy. I think everyone in my neighborhood knew when I was using it! It's definitely not something you would use to surprise someone with a breakfast smoothie. Overall this is an excellent appliance. You don't have to be a health nut to really appreciate this. I haven't tried yet, but I imagine this would make the best frozen cocktails. That will be next on my list of things to try.

    Very loud but very powerful!

    Let me start out by saying that this blender is very loud... like a leaf blower in your kitchen loud. But honestly who expects a blender to be quiet?! It is very powerful and blends like a dream, so it doesn't bother me. I had a bullet before this and it wasn't as loud but also was half as powerful, leaving chunks unblended, gross. This Ninja never disappoints... just add your desired food and liquid, screw on the blades lid, put it into the base and turn to click into place, hit the Auto IQ button, and 1 minute later a perfectly blended smoothie awaits you! There are suction cups on the bottom of the unit to hold it in place, probably because its so powerful and vibrates the counter. I love the travel lids also, they do not leak at all, which is awesome. Clean up is a breeze, just rinse and into the dishwasher everything goes. I'm very happy with this blender and cannot wait to try more of the recipes that came with it!

    Innovative Blender

    This blender is not your average blender. Normally blenders have an opening on the top so you can put things in it and then start the blender. This blender on the other hand is like a cup that you fill up and then you turn it upside down and attach it to the motor. This is convenient because you are able to actually use the top part as a cup. It even comes with different types of lids. You can quickly make a smoothy or shake and then take the top off and it turns into a cup. This blender is made out of high quality materials and is very simple to use. It has suction cups on the bottom so that it attaches to the counter top and does not move all around while being used. The only downsides would be its size. It is made for personal serving sizes and cannot fit a large amount inside of it. However, this is not really a downfall at all if you are making one thing at a time. It is also loud but it is a blender and I do not think there is a such thing as a quiet blender. Overall, this is a really nice and innovative blender. It does not take up a lot of space and is great for anyone looking to make some healthy drinks.

    Another Great Ninja Product!!!

    Absolutely love this blender. It's easy to use and is completely simplified. There are 4 buttons, Start/Stop, Blend (IQ), Ultra Blend (IQ) and Pulse. You add your ingredients, select Blend (IQ), Ultra Blend (IQ) and let the Ninja do the rest. Makes the perfectly blended drink in minutes, without really an human interaction. Cleanup was a cinch, just wash with warm water and let dry. There are also two cup sizes provided, with lids for each. Each lid has a closeable drink opening as well. You also get a recipe book that contains a great amount items to make and enjoy. The two drawbacks that I encountered were, some dripping on the base and the device is pretty loud, so don't use it when others are sleeping! :) Although of the drawbacks, that did not keep me from giving it a high rating. This is a great product!

    Love the performance of this Ninja. We had a been using a Nutri Bullet and boy that thing was terrible. Finally one day it just stopped working so picked up one of these and it is night and day! This Ninja chops everything up very well and makes everything so smooth. The Nutri Bullet we have would chop up some things but not everything. It is very easy to clean. Only take a couple of minutes that is a big plus. Also love the suction cups on the bottom of the Ninja, that keeps it from moving around. Definitely would suggest this to anyone and it well worth the money. I have suggested this to three people and they all have bought it and agreed. The only con is that it is very very loud. There is no getting around that, but that would not stop me from buying it again.

    Perfect Size for Smoothies

    I've a small kitchen, so all of my appliances have to pull their weight to earn a spot on my counter, and this blender does exactly that. It's extremely powerful, making short work of ice and frozen fruits. I've used less powerful blenders that still left chunks after a minute of blending, but with the Ninja, my shakes are smooth with no lumps. All the power comes with a price- it is extremely noisy. If you think you're going to make a breakfast smoothie before anyone in the house wakes up, think again, because your neighbors can probably hear it. The Auto iQ button takes the guesswork out of proper blending. Super powerful and super convenient.

    I've had a Ninja blender for several years and love it. We wanted to buy a smoothie maker for convenience. Tried the blender one time and it did just what I expected, however it was extremely noisy. We had just purchased a Ninja blender/smoothie maker for my mom so I decide to make a smoothie with hers and it was significantly quieter then the smoothie maker we had purchased. I decided to take my smoothie maker back because I didn't want to hear that loud noise every time someone made a smoothie.

    The Nutri Ninja does a fantastic job of making smoothies out of just about anything and the cup-as-a-blender-container is so convenient to use and pop in the dishwasher to clean afterward. I recommend this version with the Auto-IQ for the ability to simply press a button and walk away while it does its work. My only complaint is that it is incredibly loud. Don't even think about using it if someone is asleep in a nearby room. So loud, in fact that the iQ press-and-walk-away is almost a must!

    I had been using one of the original Ninjas with the push-down activation. Replaced it with this model when it started to wear out. I find the four activation buttons to be a helpful addition. Takes the guess work out of when blending is done. Improved cutting blades. Attractive, health motivating recipe book. Still a little noisy; scares my cats a little if too close. Great price at Best Buy! Overall very satisfied with this product.

    I use this blender particularly for my protein shakes and sometimes smoothies. The Nutri Ninja With Auto-iQ Blender blends my items well and doesn't leave it chunky. With all Ninja's, their blenders are loud. Other than that, very easy to clean and doesn't take up much space on the counter. This is perfect for those individuals that are on the go and don't need all the unnecessary attachments.

    You have to wear ear protection or blend in another room with a door that closes. Even with the noise, this is a great blender. You can set it and walk away (you don't have to hold the button or the cup down). You have room to add quite a bit and it will still blend. I would buy again in a second but make sure you are ready with ear protection.

    My dear wife wanted this to replace out broken on and we got them over last year end and we have been using this every day for juices and curry paste. It works a bit noisy and fast and exactly how we need things to be blend with precision blades. Please be cautious touching the blades as they are really sharp.

    I have a full size older model Ninja that I use at home but I bought this one to keep at work. I love the new style cups. They are wider. The only down side to this blender is that it's really loud. Other than that, no issues.

    I was excited to start making my morning blender. Opened it and started to blend my smoothie and was shocked at how loud it was. My smoothie was well blended however the whole neighborhood was awakened.

    I use this blender mainly to make protein or milk shakes. It is powerful enough to get the job done, is easy to clean, and has auto-timer. Only con is that the blender is a bit loud, but doesn't bother me too much.

    Wanted something to make things quick and this does it. We make smoothies everyday now without all the messy clean up from a regular blender. It's dishwasher safe but it's also a bit loud.

    Powerful blender that you may need earplugs for if making a smoothie in the morning. Somehow soft fruit can sound like gravel in this thing.

    In the short amount of time I've had the product, I noticed how significantly louder it is compared to other blenders.
