Rated 5 out of 5Â by wondertwinsmom5 Powerful and Easy to Use!
I love this product! It has replaced my old blender, food processor, and mini chopper. Only time will tell how long the blades will retain their initial sharpness, but right now they are extremely sharp and make quick work of any job I throw at it. I love that it comes with three sizes of containers and with multiple blades at different heights, I haven't had to stop and scrape it up from getting bogged down at the bottom even once.
If you already own an expensive, fancy system then this may not be for you, but if your like me and replacing old worn out ones, then you will love it!
Rated 1 out of 5Â by Creativemama No Ninja for me
This appliance is not user friendly. In the effort to secure safety, the device is too difficult to maneuver all the parts for simple preparation of food. Granted, there is no way you are "accidentally" going to turn this device on with fingers near the blades. The only way you can get cut is to mishandle the blades when cleaning or putting device together. There are 2-3 layers of blades! This processor does not chop your food, it PULVERIZES your food. Just one quick gentle push of the power section and your food is liquid. Any "chopping" of the food is rough and course and in pieces in its own juice! Food gets trapped up in the lid so you have to dismantle the whole thing in between loads. This device is very difficult to work with. Honestly, it would have been faster and cleaner for me to have hand chopped all my ingredients than to use this device.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by furbaby93 Loving It So Far
I have not used my Ninja too often as of yet but so far I am loving what it can do. I had tried that more expensive blender/chopper that ends in mix and it was just not worth the huge price. This machine does basically the same things expect heating liquids for soups. The Ninja makes smoothies super quick and chops like a dream. Clean up is so easy. Thanks to the other poster for recommending that you really hold the pulser firmly so that you do not strip the unit. That is a big help. I can't wait to try it for so many other things. A really good buy at a great price with the discounts.

I wanted to replace my blender because it doesn't chop ice or much of anything else. I thought why not get something that I can make smoothies and some other items with. I had no idea how wonderful this unit would be. Multiple chopping blades are what makes the dfiference. I have had smoothies every day. It chops ice with no problem. It chopped onions in 2 seconds. I plan to make salsa and hummus with it. Haven't tried the food processor yet but I am sure it's just as good. Don't let the watts fool you. This unit is a dynamo and will work for all my kitchen needs and probably yours, too.
