    Good small blender

    Ninja - Nutri Ninja With Auto-iQ Blender - Stainless Steel The Nutri Ninja Auto-iQ Blender is the little brother to the larger Nutri Ninja Auto-iQ blender/food processor. I selected the Blender option because it is about ½ the foot print on the counter top. Since I use it every day to make my smoothie for my health, the smaller foot print was desirable. My counter tops are small as is my kitchen. It has buttons for Start/Stop, Pulse, Blend (Auto-IQ) and Ultra Blend (Auto-IQ). The Auto-IQ buttons are programmed times with starts and stops to allow the food being blended to settle back into the blades. For my smoothie I use 8oz almond milk, 3 different frozen fruits and berries, and fresh ground flax meal, topped off with a small amount of cold filtered water to bring the level up to the full mark. Then I use the Blend button to make the smoothie, using the Ultra Blend button make the smoothie to runny. The unit is 1000 watts and has plenty of power to handle the frozen stuff. The blades have 3 levels of cutting edges, that’s 6 cutting edges total. It comes with 2 different size cups, as well as 2 lids for the cups. It has a book of recipes for you to work with. On a side note, it says stainless steel, it is completely plastic. The blades are the only stainless steel part. Although this unit is a smaller one than my previous unit, it uses the same size cups. I have 2 issues with this unit. 1 is a real issue for me, the other seems to work but I just don’t care for it. The first issue is the new redesigned cups, see the picture. They removed the graduations from the cup. It now only has max fill level. I use the graduations to measure how much of what I’m putting in. Because of this I will be using the old cup from my old unit. The redesigned cups also have ½ the threads on them. This has made it harder for me to get the blade unit or cup top in place correctly. Not impossible, just not as easy as it used to be. This issue is real, I am lucky that I have the older cup to use. If you’ve never used the old style you may not notice this. The second issue is the way the base unit holds the blender cup in place. It just presses in, no turn to latch. So far this has worked and not been a problem, it just seems a little loose when it’s running. You can see the cup shaking around as it chops up the frozen fruit. There is 1 “catch” that clicks in place. But it is not tight by any means. There is also 1 small offset in one of the 4 cup holding positions that seems to grab the cup slightly while it’s running. Time will tell if this is a real issue or just a perceived one. This is a good small blender that will allow you to press a button and do something else for the next 45 to 60 seconds. Or you can just run it like a blender. I like this unit and will be using it in place of my larger unit, just with one of my old cups.

    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.

    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.

    Ninja Auto IQ

    Ninja has been on top of the blenders for sometime now. I own an older model and was happy to see a new updated one. This come with 2 cups a 18oz and 24oz they do come with lids that fit both travel cups. They do have a spout lid to close to keep from spilling. The blender unit is 1000 watts it has 2 suction cups on the bottom of the unit so it will stay in place. You don't have to keep a hold of the unit it will not move around. There a 4 speeds on this on the Auto IQ buttons they are timed Ultra Blend and just Blend. The Pulse button you just keep pressing until you are done. This does come with a book on Recipes to use for this. Clean up of this unit is easy and fast. It's not a very big unit so it wont get in the way on your counter or in the cabinet. Overall this is a good small blender.

    Exactly what I wanted and needed

    I had previously been using a full Ninja system when all I really needed was something this small and powerful to make my morning shake/smoothy. This blends everything I want it to blend but the only thing that would have made this better is if the cups/containers would have been glass instead of plastic. No matter what, over time, plastic turns yellow and since its more porous than glass, it looks dirtier quicker. Other than that, if you're looking for a professional grade blender/mixer for your shakes and smoothies, look no further.

    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!

    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.

    The best I’ve heard had, but

    This is the best somewhat portable blender. My smoothies actually comes out as a smoothie and not some watered down drink. My only complaint, is the noise. (Who needs an alarm clock, when you have this blender?!) The noise is just really loud, but hey when you pack a lot of power in a small package, that’s the result.

    I have the Ninja Food Processor, but found I was mostly using it to make smoothies. And it took up a fairly large amount of counter space. So I got this since it is smaller and for a reasonable sale price. It’s not as good as the food processor, but it works fine for my daily smoothie needs.

    Sleek design, above average loudness (think commerical grade blenders at Jamba) and efficient blender is what I'll describe the Nutri Ninja. Having a all in one add, blend and ready to go 18 and 24 oz up is a nice feature too. I, now, have to make it a routine to prep my smoothies ahead of time to simply insert and blend. Thanks.

    I love this small Ninja blender, I owned the chef edition but for small task and individual smoothies this Ninja is perfect. I mostly bought it so my kids could make their own smothies without my assistance and it's the best investment ever. Easy clean up as well.

    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.

    We upgraded to the Nutri Ninja for our smoothie obsession. It is smart and fast. I love that the drinking spout screws right onto the blender container. One improvement would be marking ounces on the container.

    Nice smoothy maker for the price. Had a nutrabullet before that lit on fire after minimal use. Appreciate the different settings on this blender too. Suction cups keep it on the counter as well, so you can walk away from it when it’s running!

    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.

    This one’s a much better one time investment than the cheap ones for 20$ and barely grinding anything. This one with auto iq, grinds the ingredients itself on a one minute timer. Happy with the purchase.

    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.

    Loving the Auto IQ blender. Nice that it’s hands free compared to the previous models. I just wish they would have added the oz on the sides of the blender bottles

    This Ninja blender is great for making smoothies and processing pesto and other items. The Auto-IQ is a great feature that takes the guess work out of blending.
