    Love it, but wish I would have picked another

    I drink 6-10 smoothies each week. I had to replace my old (very good) blender with something. I researched the options and choose a Ninja. I had a model in mind when I walked into the best buy. It was out of stock. I bought this one instead. It was a little cheaper but I thought it was the model I wanted with out the accessories, I planed on buying a single serve cup, by its self at a later date. I later found out that this model doesn't support a single serve cup. If I would have know that, I would have ordered the one off line that I wanted in the first place, it was a Ninja too. Don't get me wrong, I love this blinder. It does just what I expect a blender to do. It makes great smoothies with frozen fruit and ice. I especially like the pour spout on the top. It makes for easy, no mess serving of your drink.

    Better than basic but could be a bit better

    I needed a new blender and had a gift certificate. I bought this after reading reviews. its pretty, its powerful and for the most part does exactly as advertised. it will really work for just about anything you need it to do. just dont expect miracles necessarily. I love making smoothies and margaritas. I haven't made other food items or ice cream but I hear it does well with that. ice pieces are a little bit bigger than I'd like and some ingredients it doesn't blend fine enough but its a minor gripe for the price I paid. Could a basic blender do more...maybe but mylast basic blender wasnt as good as this one. love the flat button face that is easy to clean..its all easy to clean! the ton of blades makes it a bit hard to load up and they are super sharp so be careful but overall I'd completely recommend this blender if you can get it for under $99 like I did.

    Obliterates Solid Food, but Hard to Clean

    My wife loves this blender. It's a very nice upgrade from the $30 style that your grandma has. The three blades make short work of your food. It's a bit awkward to put the lid on, take it off, rotate the container into place, etc., but once you get accustomed to that, it's not too bad. It's mostly easy to clean, but the major exception to that is the lid. I'm honestly surprised that a food processing device has so many tight corners and crevices. Most process equipment is required to have curved corners, etc., so that food won't get stuck and bacteria begin to grow. We've had this for over a month, and it doesn't appear to be an issue yet, but we'll see how it goes after a year.

    I've had this for about a month now and it really does the job well. The offset triple blades work so much better than having the blades at the bottom. They prevent you having to open the lid and pushing down stuff on the side because it doesn't mix on other blenders. No problem at all chopping ice along with the drink. The pulse and two speeds are all you need. Easy clean and easy maintenance. Not sure about the longevity yet as the directions state to do pulses to chop the ice and then run it on one of the speeds for 30 seconds. Near the end of the 30 seconds you get that electric smell like it is overheating. No issues yet, but just a little concerning. Maybe just because it is new. All in all, very good value for the money.

    I have to agree with the other reviewer who said it takes a bit of extra time to make a smoothie that is truly smooth due to the food being pushed against the sides. That said, I notice looking through the included recipe ideas booklet that they allow several minutes to make certain recipes, so maybe I am just impatient. The top is easy but I can imagine an elderly person may have some trouble as you do need to push pretty firmly on the locking mechanism, and on the release button as well. I like that it has a pour spout in the lid too. The blender feels really sturdy to me and I feel like it will last many years, unlike cheaper blenders I have owned. Very easy to take apart for cleaning also.

    Nearly perfect smoothie maker

    I bought the Ninja because my old blender always left lumps, no matter how long it ran or at what speed. The Ninja does a far better job in relatively little time. Smoothies have the right consistency, even when ice cubes and frozen fruit are in the mix. I was concerned about ruggedness at this price point, but this blender seems to handle regular use without problems. The unit is noisy, but who cares? It doesn't run for long. My only real complaint is clean up. The novel blade design requires complicated interlocks for safety, and this makes cleaning and drying of the lid and container (especially the hollow container handle) more difficult.

    A well designed and well built machine

    I bought this blender online on a day when Best Buy had it on sale for $80 which was $20 less than anyone else. Then I was able to pick it up almost immediately from a nearby BB store. Smooth transaction! So far I have only used this blender for crushing ice and making fresh fruit smoothies and frozen drinks. It performs these tasks very well and far better than either of the 2 blenders I previously owned. I prefer using my food processor or stick blender for other food prep chores. So I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 only because I haven't experienced much variety of usage with it.

    Really good blender

    I had a Cuisinart that used to get jammed up making smoothies; just juice, ice, frozen fruit and some yogurt, maybe a banana too. I decided to upgrade to the ninja cause there was a good deal on it from Best Buy. Boy am I happy I made the switch. Making the exact same smoothies always results in perfectly blended smoothies. Every now and then i smell the motor burning which is why i didn't give this 5 stars but it doesn't seem like something I am too worried about. Just that off smell. Also the top has this nice spout that doesn't make a big of a mess as the cuisinart. Very good blender so far.

    With all the hype over this thing, I thought it would be the greatest blender ever. It's not. It's a really, really good one though. And I would recommend it to others. I use it strictly for my protein smoothies. It takes a while for everything to blend and I usually have to go in and make sure everything is blending together and not sticking to the top or the sides. I still dig it and it was worth what I paid for it.

    Great for processing, so so for blending

    We purchased this to replace my blender that had an unfortunate accident. The unit is pretty loud, but built well and is great for working with ice. Where it falls a little short, in my opinion, is blending. We do a lot of green shakes and it chops up the vegetables fine but is not so great at making a smooth blend. I would however still recommend this unit due to the speed, ease of use, as well as cleanup.

    Excellent blender that takes on any challenge

    I bought this blender hoping to find a blender that would last me a while and I'm quite happy with my purchase. This blender crushes ice and anything else with ease. It is easy to setup, use, and breakdown for cleaning. The only minor issue with it is that it is fairly loud but it is a high power blender so that's not too surprising. It was also a little pricey but well worth the cost.

    We got the Magic Bullet... that thing broke in 2 days. So when I looked at the Ninja as a replacement, I was a little skeptical about the durability because the container is plastic, but it has held up nicely. I'll tell ya what, though, this bad boy is LOUD, and I wish it would puree more finely, but, hey, it works.

    What sold it for us was the ease in which the machine assembled/disassembled. Makes it very easy to use. The three blade construction is unusual, but it works very well. As a whole, the blender is very well engineered. Since we burned up our last blender (not a Ninja), I'll reserve final judgement for a few years.

    I'm quite impressed on the consistency of our smoothies with the use of the blender. Easy to use. Cleaning is a challenge considering there are grooves around the blade and a small chamber where it attaches to the blender. A small bottle brush is recommended for cleaning. Great buy.

    This is the first Ninja blender I Buy, and so far this thing is awesome!!! It blended my frozen fruit smoothie in 30 seconds and pretty well too. I can fill it full of frozen fruit, various vegetables and greens, and it blends them very quickly and effortlessly.

    I bought this blender after being referred by a friend who had recently bought one! I like the way it works! It blends spinach really nicely and doesn't leave chunks of leafs in there! It also chops big chunks of ice into fine little pieces!

    Great performance although I use it only to blend raw leafy greens (for a green drink) that are bulky but get reduce its volume in seconds while blend..... I'll prefer to have a lid with a bigger opening to feed the blender while in motion...

    I love this blender. I mix a lot of smoothies and had planned on buying a Vitamix but couldn't justify the cost. This Ninja blends perfectly. I blend a lot of spinach and it doesn't leave "pieces". Great buy!

    Solid blender for the price. I was hoping it would work for juicing, but it's not quite powerful enough to totally liquefy. Still, it does a fine job, disassembles very easily, and the pitcher is one solid piece, making it very easy to clean.

    I love it- just wish it was made of glass instead of plastic. Even my low power blender has a glass container to it. This product would last longer and be more eco friendly if it was glass. Other wise it's a powerful machine.
