    Awesome blender, awesome price

    I had a simple Oster blender for as long as I could remember. I thought it was great because it was inexpensive, but came with a ton of blending options (buttons). But once it got to the point where my morning smoothie would take almost 20 minutes to blend, and required a lot of 'spooning' intervention, I decided it was time for a change. Enter the Ninja. I saw this in the aisle while perusing my local BestBuy and instantly searched the item online for reviews. Reviews said "Great product," and I took it home with me that afternoon. I've been extremely happy ever since. I have not put anything in the blender that it couldn't make mush out of. I've made frozen drinks, almost solid drinks, extremely liquid-y drinks, and everything in between. It takes almost no time to get a good blend (if you're spending more than 1 minute blending anything, you're doing it wrong). Cleanup is pretty simple: so long as you didn't blend up anything super sticky, you simply fill the blender with water and a drop of dish soap, run it for 15 seconds or so, then rinse. I also put it through my dishwasher once weekly, which is perfectly safe to do. The only caution I would give anyone is that the blades are insanely sharp. When I tried (first, before reading directions--silly me) to wash the blade portion by hand, I managed to cut myself quite easily. Needless to say, I stick with the blended hot water with soap method to clean typically. But the blade being insanely sharp is also a good thing: it makes for good smoothie making!

    Amazing Blender! Extremely Versatile.

    I cook on a daily basis and I also make alot of milkshakes for my family. I've had 2 different Hamilton Beach milkshake makers and this thing blows them away! It EASILY makes shakes slushees, smoothies, health drinks, and whatever else you wish to create. Some may not like the noise it makes but most of us men will enjoy the roar of it's powerful motor. We wouldn't want our Lamborghini to sound like a Cadillac. The thing sounds powerful. period. I just turned 47 and decided to treat myself by buying this blender. My rationale for this particular purchase was "I want to get something well made so I'll never have to buy another in my lifetime". WOW! I hit a homerun on this one. It does everything well and I'm only scratching the surface of what this blender can do. The 1000 watts this model has under the hood is more than enough power to liquify virtually any food item. NO STUBBORN LUMPS THAT MOST BLENDERS ALMOST ALWAYS REQUIRE EXTRA BLENDING TIME TO BREAK DOWN. It's amazingly efficient and thorough. It has 3 distinct speeds plus a PULSE button for precise blending. Did i mention you'll never need a separate food processor once you buy this machine? This blender/food processor will not disappoint. I'd imagine the most demanding chef would find this useful in their own kitchen. This blender works every bit as well as claimed and then some. What you see in their tv ads is ABSOLUTELY what this beast can do. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this blender to ANYONE.

    Almost too much to handle (but totally worth it)

    I was hesitant to buy this blender mainly because the name "Ninja" invoked feelings of made-for-TV quality products. But finally I relented and gave it a shot, mostly because the 1000watt motor is the best thing out there for the price (and much lower priced than similar models). Well we LOVE this blender! The 1000watt motor makes short work of ANYTHING you put in the blender. The 6 blades are super-sharp, actually mincing and cutting instead of just smashing into pulp, but they're still very easy to clean. All the parts lock into each other, so you can actually carry the whole blender by the handle. No more worrying about the lid flying off either! (It takes a minute to get the locks right the first time, but once you do it's no problem at all.) I would call this the Dyson of blenders. But the best part is, you don't have to pay extra for all that quality! We've been using the heck out of it and it shows no signs of slowing down. The trickiest part has been having it NOT over-blend stuff and we've had to tweak our recipies a bit. if they make a model that has a lower slow speed I'd be all over that!

    Better than I thought blenders could be.

    I generally don't get excited about cooking appliances, but this blender is the exception. It has four pieces; the cap, blender blade tower, container, and the base. They are incredibly easy to use and clean since the tower comes out of the container. I just wash it out every time I blend something and I'm done! 2 minutes at most. The blender has yet to get stuck on anything (I put in mostly ice, fruits, yogurt, and peanut butter). Best of all is the little drink guide that comes with the blender. It has tons of tasty recipes. My roommate actually compared our apartment to a Nuvibe (local smoothy place) since I have been making smoothies so often. The only hitch I have had with the blender was this; I couldn't get it to work for 10 minutes (thank you google) since I had put the lid on incorrectly. Yes, this was in the instructions that I had thrown away and there are little arrows that show this needs to be put on the right way. I accept full responsibility of my own idiothood. In all other ways the blender has proven its worth is bronze, or some other minor metal. I love it.

    I did not have high expectations for this blender because of the price but it appeared that it had a lot of features for the price. Compared to similar blenders the thing that I liked the most was the multiple blades on the main shaft. I got tired of blending everything at the bottom of the blender and having to stop and scoop it all out and move it down to re blend. Then, when consumer reports ranked it on par with the Vita mix I decided to buy it. They were not wrong. It has a lot of power and blends everything well the first time. Some have complained that it does not blend as smooth as others and maybe that is true but I'm not making anything that would require a perfectly smooth texture. I just want my shakes to blend up and then be able to pour it out. It crushes ice into powder if you want it to and doesn't seem to be struggling to do so. It is all plastic which makes me wonder if a glass jar wouldn't have been better but time will tell if it is durable. Overall, i highly recommend it and would buy it again.

    I was impressed with the durability, power and how fast it blends. While putting it together, operating during and afterwards, you have to pay attention to what you are doing. If not you will leave yourself open to cutting yourself with the multiple blades it has. Pay attention to when stuffing your blender; it's easy to slice you fingers if you go too deep. I don't even bother washing the blades by hand; I just place it on the top shelf of my dishwasher. I really stress safety. The other drawback is that if the liquid is to high, the liquid will leak a little bit from the little plastic covered spout located one of the top corners. Not a big issue; just have a paper towel handy. Overall this blender does the job. It replaced my 22 year old Hamilton Beach. I hope I will get another 22+.

    Loving our blender full of Ninjas

    We bought the blender on a recommendation from a friend. We've burnt out many other lesser blenders from daily smoothies for the family and summer frozen drink concoctions. I do not like purchasing appliances for my wife for the holidays but this has turned into her favorite gift (admittedly I didn't buy her any jewelry). Used daily now for 3 months and not a hiccup. This blender full of Ninjas is awesome. Clean it right after use so nothing gets stuck to the blades so you don't have to fight the ninjas to give them a bath. We simply make our smoothies and then fill full of warm water and a bit of ivory soap, blend and rinse. This usually takes care of it for the next day. BTW, my first test was to jam the thing full of ice. It made snow without a moment of complaining. Waldo

    I did a lot of research and picked this blender, and was able to buy this on sale at Best Buy. My wife is on chemo and we have switched our eating habits to more fruit and vegetables. Making smoothies is a great way to get your fruit and vegetables. What makes this blender better than most is the blades go all the way to the top of the container. It could cut up a two by four. In fact be very careful of the very sharp blades when handling. Also it is very easy to use and clean. I highly recommend the product.

    I was hesitant in buying this blender, since I was considering more expensive blenders, however, I'm glad I didn't!! This thing has done everything my more expensive blender did before, and at 1/8th of the cost. I should note that it does have a couple things that are a tad annoying, in that when you put the item in the dishwasher, there are some gaps in the bottom of the holder that lets water (and junk) sneak in, so after you take it out you gotta kinda power wash the holes in the bottom to get the stuff out. Oh, and it's a little loud, but other then that, It's great! I couldn't be more satisfied with my purchase.

    Replaced an Oster blender with this one and the difference is amazing. Blend in one third the time and chops ice very fast. The design of the blades moves the contents around blending easily instead of just cutting from a bottom only blade. Does a great job in dicing veggies as long as you control how long. If you let it run too long you better like veggie smoothies. The only drawback so far is the blades are RAZOR sharp. Be very careful cleaning.

    This is our second Ninja. We have one for our home and now have one for our vacation home. There is no reason to push things down as the spiral goes up into the blender. The cutting blade stays sharp. No more lost rubber washer as the pitcher unit is one piece and does not need to have a bottom screwed on. The drive is much larger so you won't strip the square piece that so many other blenders have. My wife and daughter look forward to using the Ninja. They seldom used the other blenders because of their problems.

    Best Blender Ever!

    Probably the best blender I have ever had! I bought a blender from another company that did not work out so well for me and it actually caught on fire. Then I went to Best Buy to pick up the Ninja Blender by recommendation from a coworker of mine this blender has turned out to be the best blender I have ever had. This blender has been able to cut up the frozen vegetables, the frozen fruits, and all the ingredients necessary for me to be able to maintain my diet. If I had to recommend this blender I definitely would recommend it to anyone.

    If you would like to blend your food or fruits this is the blender. It works fast and gives a smooth felling. I would recommend this product hands down. The blender makes a little bit of noise but it is expected because is a powerful machine nothing that anyone could handle. Go ahead and try it if you are in doubt you wont regret it as I am not. It took me over 6 months researching, for blenders and reviews, to be sure if I should by this blender.

    This blender is lightweight yet powerful. We broke our glass blender, so we wanted plastic this time. We've stripped other blenders by not having it aligned correctly, but this one won't run unless it's perfectly set up. Great feature when you have kids making smoothies! Also love the locking cover! No more back splashes when pouring! And it has blades at multiple levels so we don't have to shake the blender to mix the contents!

    I stopped juicing because a juicer is difficult to keep clean and it could not juice too much without having to take it apart to clean it out. Also my juicer though I spent like $150 on it, could not handle a heavy work load. This Ninja blender does skins and all without an issue. 30 seconds or so and my mix is ready to drink. Ice? No problem. Fruits? Nope. Vegetables? Not at all. You won't regret this blender. One blender to rule them all.

    I bought this for my daughter, as I already have a high-speed blender and she enjoyed drinking my fresh healthy fruit drinks every morning for breakfast when she was staying with me. Her other blender would not liquefy, but this one does AND it's inexpensive! I love that it has two sets of blades so that drinks are well blended to liquid with no chunkiness, and that it is easy to clean.

    This thing will make ice into snow super quick. I put in 4 peaches cut in half, and after a min or so, they were gone, liquified. And with ice and some honey, I was the best treat. So far, so good. No problems. And Best Buy had it for $20 less then any other site on the web, I checked alot of them..............

    Have already recommended this to friends and family. Love the ease of use and simple dishwasher clean up. It has super grinding-blending power. The large capacity is wonderful - no more making multiple batches of smoothies in order to have enough for family. In order to operate, the lid has to be on and locked in place - love that I'll never again hit the on button only to realize I didn't put the lid on yet. :)

    We started out purchasing a cheaper blender...one that literally didn't blend. Upon returning that, my husband & I decided to spend the extra $$ and go with this. Such a great idea. It makes our smoothies effortlessly. We've definitely gotten our money's worth already and I'm absolutely pleased! The clean up is a breeze and there are so many things that can be done with it. Definitely worth the $$!
