    This is a GREAT blender that rivals my much more expensive Vitamix. I’ve taken a break from my Vitamix 5200, which retails for 5 times the cost of this blender, to test this one out for a week. I love it! It gives my Vitamix a run for the money. Here are some observations:

    For chopping, this blender is impressive. It looks so much like a food processor that I tried chopping an onion, and got acceptable results. I would absolutely use this for that. (The Vitamix can’t do this at all.)

    For ice crushing, YES! Yes, yes, yes. Snow in blazingly fast time. Sno-cones, margaritas, whatever, this blender has that application covered. Fantastic results, far better than the Vitamix.

    For pulverizing, I thought it was very good. This was the area that the Vitamix outshone the Ninja, but I think the Ninja did just fine. In my homemade jalapeño-coleslaw dressing, the blender didn’t quite get all the jalapeño pulverized, and there were little chunks still in the dressing. The Ninja had a little trouble pulverizing 2 large bunches of kale, and I had to stop the blender a few times to use a scraper to push the leaves down. I also needed to add some water to aid in the blending. The leaves ended up rather smoothly pulverized, although I don’t think they were quite as fine as in the Vitamix.

    I love how the blades remove completely from the pitcher every single time; it not only makes it easier to scrape out all the food from the blender but also to get it perfectly clean. The Vitamix always ends up with food stuck under the blades, and if it’s something like hummus, it’s really hard to get it clean. So the design on the blades in the Ninja is brilliant. Be careful, though: those blades are sharp. I managed to to slice my hands open on two separate occasions while trying to put them in or take them out of the dishwasher.

    Seriously, having tried this blender, I can’t see recommending that anyone spend the extra money for a Vitamix. This is a really nice blender.

    This is the second Ninja I’ve owned (the other is the Master Prep set), and I have to say that it’s a great product. My previous blenders had been older cheap Osters, which didn’t do near the job that this one does. First, I love the multiple blades. Why someone didn’t think of this earlier – I don’t know. It’s handled everything I’ve thrown at it without any complaints. Smoothies (including crushing ice), soups, tomato sauce, quick salsas. Warning – it’ll quickly liquefy solids. That’s a positive, but if you’re not careful it could quickly become a negative. Example, I was making a quick puree-style salsa (tomatos, jalapenos, onions, garlic, cilantro). I put the ingredients in in larger pieces, turned it on for a while longer than I should have (longer in seconds, not longer in minutes) and what came out was a nearly consistent liquid. Tasted good, but was pretty hard to keep on the chips! My wife uses it daily for smoothies. She uses frozen bananas, frozen blueberries, protein powder, and yogurt/milk/juice – sometimes ice. The previous blender couldn’t handle this chore, at all. The Ninja laughs at this task. Smooth, well-integrated, and quick. The best part – it’s dishwasher safe. Highly recommended, well worth the cost (which is a fraction of the other “professional” blenders out there)

    Reasonable Performance but not Professional Performance, November 7, 2014

    This is a really good looking product. Fits under your counter and does a reasonable job for average applications. I have owned a variety of smoothie makers, and blenders at every price point. What I noticed is that blenders that have a stick blade, fail to really pulvertize the food. Because there are a number of blades on the stick it seems like it’s going to grind you food up really well. However, I did not find that because the machine didn’t have the power hand a super smooth puree.

    Super smooth purees is quality I was looking for. I like to make Spinach smoothies. I placed my frozen fruits and liquid in and then attempted to add my spinach. Because of the blades being so high up, I struggled to get the spinach down into the machine. Once I got the machine running, after several attempts I realized that my smoothie was not going to liquefy completely so it’s texture was rather grainy to the taste although it looked smooth.

    Additionally I did not find the handle comfortable, and making sure everything was locked and clicked into place was an added nuisance. I also fear these plastic lid parts are going to break off soon. It was easy to clean up, but for heavy use, I don’t think this is going to work out. I liked the product generally but i’m rather underwhelmed by it’s lack of power. As a baker I also do a lot of nut and fruit purees and this machine isn’t going to cut that. I think calling this a Professional Blender is a marketing name because this machine isn’t capable of giving professional results. Yes, it chops ice, but if you are looking to blend your things into smooth purees, this machine falls short.
