Ninja 72 oz. Ultima Blender w/Dual Stage Blending
Nice blender. I use it to juice. If you vary the pulse, you can get liquid veggie juice. Not pulpy. High speed, pretty red. Well made.
Love Love Love
Very powerful machine. Does everything it claims to do! Wish I hadn't waited so long to purchase.
Glad I did!
This blender is so powerful. Before, I had to chew my green smoothies. With this blender i am able to drink without chewing. The smoothies come out so creamy and smooth. I was hesitant on purchasing a different high powered blender. I am so glad I purchased this one instead. Flex pay made this investment even more doable. I received it 4 days before the delivery date. Here's to a healthier me.
I LOVE LOVE my new Ninja Blender, its wonderful. I highly recommend it to all.
Wow! This is the pro-blender we have been saving up for. Fruit smoothies came out like a dream, I am sure the local franchise will not be thanking Ninja since they just lost a customer :)
Then baked potato soup, recipe calls for 8oz of cream cheese to make it creamy - not with the Ninja, now we can just blend the potatoes for the creaminess! Thank you thank you thank you QVC for the price and the easy pay.
Awesome awesome awesome!
I over research everything before purchasing and this was no different. If money wasn't an issue I would go for the Vitamix, but of course it is. I was nervous as it was to spend this kind of money but it is SOOOOOOOO worth it! I make lots of smoothies, fruit and green. Ninja works great! But the best is my at home iced cappuccinos! I save so much money making my own at home now and I even prefer mine now over Tom Hortons! Plus mine is healthier!
I owned a Nutri Bullet 900 and it started giving a few problems when working it, I got the this Ninja and is a powerful machine, but is a little large for a single person although I still recommend it.
I received my Ninja Ultima in the mail last night. Three healthy green smoothies in, and I am sold. I have a another name brand blender, but it could never completely break down kale and carrots to easily. This blender handles anything from frozen to fresh easily. For those complaining that the blender stops working after weeks/months of usage, with any blender you need to make sure you have enough liquid to product ratio. You cannot expect it to break down solid frozen chunks of fruit without the proper liquid to assist. That is just asking for motor burn out. It also helps to pulse a couple times to break down the solid/frozen items for easier blending. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a cost effective alternative to the Vitamix.
I put a lot of thought and research in before buying the Ninja Ultimate Blender. The major complaint was that it wasn't a Vitamix. I don't know what I am missing in a Vitamix...but I love this blender. It is powerful and meets all my needs. It is so easy to clean. I could not be happier.
I love my Nija
This was my best purchase ever! Blends things so fast and smooth! I love the option of using the single cups instead of the full blender! A must buy if you are looking for a reasonably priced blender.
Terrific power blender
This is a terrific power blender. I have used a Ninja Master Prep for 4 years so I know
how good Ninja quality is, and I wanted to upgrade to real power, and this blender's
1,500 watts is great. I use it mainly to liquefy fruits and vegetables, for which adding
some water is desirable to get the mixture easily drinkable. This is a well-designed,
well-made unit and should be durable. To liquefy the produce, I follow the steps
in the recipe book: I pulse it 5 times and then blend on the 5 speed and then
increase to the 8 speed. It takes only about 2 minutes. Be aware that the toggle
switch to turn it on (flip it upward) also requires flipping it upward to stop. Do not
flip it downward, because that is the pulse mode. I have no intention of putting
any part in the dishwasher, as it is easy to rinse out. I also do NOT intend to
crush ice in it, as I seldom use ice anyway. Ice is a very hard substance, and
I want to maximize the life of the unit by not doing that. Instructions say to
not run the unit on empty (without contents). This came with a 2-year warranty, so
I called Ninja and told them the QVC website said it is a 4-year mfgr. warranty,
and Ninja agreed to that term when I telephoned in my registration. Be sure to
do that! Keep in mind that this is a very strong blender, so it is noisy. There is
a tenant in the apt. above me, and I'm sure they can hear this run, but luckily
it does not need to run very long. I have to trim the produce anyway on a cutting
board to remove waste, so I always go the extra mile and cut everything into
rather small pieces first. Easy to do, and there is less wear and tear on the
unit, as I want this to last for many years. I have liquefied fruits and vegetables
(together so there is some sweetness from the fruits, whether apple, red
seedless grapes, banana, etc.) about 6 times now, and I just love it. I have
no real need for the 2 individual mixing cups (which have their own
designated speed on the dial). In summary, this is a terrific blender that
will serve you well, and I am delighted to have gotten it at a clearance price
and on payments with QVC.

I LOVE my Ninja! I've been using it for about a month at least 3x a day, and it works perfectly every time! I had been thinking about becoming a vegan, and this appliance has made it a breeze! This is a sturdy machine, and the large pitcher blends everything to silk. The smaller drink/blender container does not, but is perfect for chopping - chunky or very fine. The top to the drink/blender goes on VERY easily when properly aligned. Clean up takes two minutes flat! I honestly believe that my Ninja Blender will last for years, and when/if it takes its final whirl, I'll immediately buy another. And thanks for the great price, QVC!
