Ninja 72 oz. Ultima Blender w/Dual Stage Blending
I bought the Ninja so my 3 daughters could make a quick smoothie on their way out the door to work and school...Their fav. Smoothie is packed full of nutrition with fruit, honey, yogurt and orange juice...I am so pleased with the Ninjas performance, slightly loud but not a problem considering the great job it does!!! Definitely recommend buying it, you won't be sorry!!!!
Sent it back the next day ..
Sadly, I was hoping the performance would match the Vitamix. The Ninja did not. The price was right, but in my opinion, the performance fell short. I use the Vitamix at a friend's house and it is so much easier to use and produces better results. The most annoying thing for me was the lid. It just didn't snap into place that easy for me. My next purchase will be the Vitamix. :)
simply the best!
I can't tell you how much I love it! It is the best !
This machine is a workhorse. When you first turn it on it hums then kicks in an pulverizes
the ice cubes in the smoothie. Fast and furious!
Powerful, Easy Clean & Superb product support
I am really enjoying this product. I use it nearly every day! My husband is battling diabetes and loves cold treats. One night I remembered Bob Ward making snow in the Ninja Ultima. So we all gathered in the kitchen, made snow from plain ice. I scooped it into wide, low glasses and topped it with sugar free coffee syrups. Vanilla & Almond mixed together were a big hit and they thought they were eating sno-cones. I've also loved the beautiful mayo and salad dressings you can make. It is so powerful it makes nut butters easily. It is a fabulously powerful product. It is super easy to clean. I've called product support several times with questions and they are always so easy to speak with! Love that!
the ninja is very easy to clean and work great xoxo
Overall Great Blender!
Love this blender! It's getting a lot of use and it seems to be up for the challenge. I couldn't do 4 1/2 stars so it gets four, only because it is very loud and there is no power button so you have to unplug it in after each use.
Exceeded all my expectations!!!
This machine is simply amazing! I am in green smoothie heaven!!!! From kale to spinach, swiiss chard, chia seed, flax seed, root vegetables you name it. This machine has turned everything I have thrown at, into silk!
Like many others have posted, I was bit skeptical purchasing the Ninja over the higher priced blenders for fear it wouldn't perform as well, but not anymore. Now that I own it and have experienced its performance first hand - my takeaway and personal opinion is, even IF the much pricier Vitamix & Blendtec machines are able to produce smoothies (a negligible) 1 micron smoother, then I beleive both companies will ultimately have a heck of time explaining or justifying their small fortune premium over the Ninja, it's that simple. I totally recomend this this blender! Happy blending!
Very disappointed in the Ninja. Doesn't make the product smooth like it says it would. There was always bits and tiny pieces that never broke down.. Disliked it so much I sold mine on EBay and took a lose. I went back to my old blender the OSTER. It did a much better job for less the money...I am saving up for the top of the line Vitamix.
2 words, BEST EVER
I'm not going to write a book it's this simple.. This blender is worth every dime and more. I can't believe how much vitamix and blendtek are and this blender has them beat. I can testify to it because I recently owned the blendtek which I gave away.
This blender crushes everything and it's not as loud as others. Makes perfect smoothies, has the to go cups which makes it convenient. I love it simply because it does the job for me and makes perfect smoothies with an ease.
What a machine !!!
There's just nothing you can't do in this incredible machine. My husband was a skeptic and he didn't think we'd use it that much so I secretly smile each time I see him making his own pick-me-up smoothie. He's said (more than once) how glad he is I ordered this awesome blender.
Green Smoothie Machine
I needed a blender that made green smoothies smooth but didn't want to spend $400+. This Ninja does the job well, especially for the price.
