With a name like Ninja, you know it means business. The Ninja Professional Countertop Blender is one of the most powerful blenders on the market today. 1100 watts and 3 speeds offer even the most serious juicer every option needed to create the most amazing juices.
One of the more important functions of a good blender is the ability to handle even the densest of fruits and vegetables. Too often, small motors and not enough speed settings will cause a blender to overwork, even burning out, when heavy veggies are blended. When your goal is have a fruit smoothie, you want everything blended into a delicious, smooth drink. The Ninja’s 1100 watt motor will do just that, regardless of how heavy or dense your fruit or veggie might be.
Another great feature of this blender is the really large mixing jar. At 72 ounces, you can mix up good sized batches of your favorite juice or smoothie at one go. No need to constantly keep refilling the jar to create another drink. Sauces and soups can be done in larger batches as well, the convenience of a bigger mixing jar is something you will appreciate.
Can This Blender Crush Ice?
Yes, it really can! Again, a problem with blenders with small motors is the inability to handle dense foods or to crush ice. Okay, ice is just frozen water, but it can present a problem to blenders if the motor is too small. You can either end up with chunks of ice that are too large or, even worse, a blender whose motor is smoking badly and no longer working.
The Two 16 Ounce Serving Glasses Are A Nice Benefit
You not only get the blender with this package, you get two dishwasher friendly 16 ounce serving glasses, with lids. These are the perfect to-go glasses. Blend up that perfect smoothie and take it with you in the car or on your walk. Most juice or smoothie recipes are designed for 8 or 16 ounce servings, making these glasses the perfect size.
Another great feature of the glasses is that they fit on the blender base, allowing you to make a single serving of your beverage right in the glass. Twist the glass unto the blender base with the ingredients, blend and you are ready to go with a single serving. What a grand idea!
An Easy To Use Blender
A good kitchen tool is easy to use, and this blender meets that description perfectly. All of the controls are on the front panel of the blender base and the touchscreen is simple to understand. Pulse control is available and works very well, as does the pre-set speeds.
Once you have finished with your drinks, clean up is a snap. The mixing jar and lid are both dishwasher safe, as are the glasses and lids. The single blade unit detaches easily for cleaning and can be rinsed off quickly.
While the Ninja Professional Countertop Blender is a bit more expensive than some other blenders, you get a lot of appliance for your dollar. The additional drinking glasses that can be used for individual mixing jars are great assets, you will be surprised at how often you use them. Quality is very high for all of the pieces, making this a very good blender for the price.
