K35620 - Ninja Kitchen System 40 oz. Pulse Blender & (3) 16 oz. Cups
WOW! This Blender Rocks! I purchased it from QVC about a year ago when it was a TSV. We mainly use it to make our weekend smoothies. The Ninjas multi-stacked blades make All the difference. It easily chops up all the ice, fruit, nuts, etc that I mix in. The single "to go" blender cups are great to make and take with you. We are truly pleased with our purchase (and sooooo glad I got itin Red before it sold out!)
I use this mostly to make margarita's. It does a great job. There are a few pieces of ice that are a smidge on the large size (get caught in the straw) but overall I think this machine works very well. I bought the red and really like it.
I'm so glad I bought this when I did. I have used this machine for many things. The power is amazing. I started using it as soon as it arrived at my door. I can not beleive how it makes my life easier. Ex: I make cheese cake, and the graham crackers have to be crushed for the crust. The old way was I would put them in a bag and pound on my counter to crush them, and make a big mess b/c the bag would split. Now I just put them in the NINJA and literlly in seconds their done. I'm sold! I purchased the red and love it...
Great to have!
I am able to make smoothies in no time at all. Easy to clean and use. I like the convenience of making the smoothie and then changing lids and going to work. I bought the cinnamon color and the color is great in my kitchen.
LOVE MY NINJA
I got my ninja as a christmas present to myself and i love it. the smoothies are great and i make one everyday. I love the smaller container to make different smoothies and smaller portions for my kids.
It's lightweight but works great. I always had problems with our last blender to make smoothies, now as long as I use enough liquid it works perfectly. It's easy and no buttons to push, plus the single serve cups are nice, I just those the most. They aren't spill proof, so keep that in mind. It cleans easily (I just rinse it out in the sink). The cookbook it comes with is fantastic, not only does it have recipies, but it has the seasons of fruits & veggies and why they're good for you! If you want to make cookie dough in it, I'd halve the recipe because it's not big enough. I'm afraid it's going to die becuase it's plastic but for now we're all good.
Horrible Ozone smell, does not work well.
I've tried to make a few smoothies / ice creams / other frozen berry items, as well as 'snow' to make snow cones (my ice shaver makes an obnoxious sound that my wife can't stand!). The unit stalls easily, and when it runs long enough to do anything worthwhile, causes quite an ozone stench in the kitchen from brush arcing.
The 'snow' the 40oz caraffe was supposed to make is more like coarse pulveriized ice - the flavorings flow right through it to the bottom, leaving colorless, flavorless ice on top, and soup on the bottom.
Smoothies end up being so full of non-pulverized material that they can't flow through a straw.
Book recipes aren't sized appropriately for the single serve containers, even though they are listed as such - have to either RAM the blade unit in and attach (bad idea), or 'on-the fly' remove the last ingredient used 'til it fits, causing the taste to be off. So far, I've only had ONE out of many actually taste good enough that my wife wouldn't complain about it.
Should've waited and got a Blend-Tec. At least I KNOW they function well.
The best...gave my Bullet away. iIuse this for smoothies, frozen adult beverages, bread dough, cake mix, chopping vegetables and anything that would require a mixer, food processor, blender or chopper.
Wish they would get this configuration in again for a gift I would love to give to friends.
I have a Smoothie maker and it doesn't do half of what this does. I love the fact that it crushes the ice as well as it does. It's great for making the WW Smoothies. The individual jars make it simple - no thought in how much or how little ice, water or milk. The individual small blade chops the ice as good as the large one!!
Purchased blender just before Thanksgiving in cranberry - beautiful. The Ninja chops fresh herbs in a blink of an eyelash. Caution: blade is extremely sharp. Very happy with the blender, not so much with the recipe book.
Love, love, love this!
I was skeptical that this would work like shown, but it sure does!!! I look forward to using this for years and years!! Makes life in the kitchen easier for sure!!
Love This Ninja!!
This is a great blender.It makes great smoothies and coffee drinks.Havn't made anything else yet, but a great purchase.
