Rated 5 out of 5 by SLPalm Handy kitchen tool, great bargain.
My 20-year-old blender finally stopped making smoothies--only able to get chunkies out of it. So I finally decided to check out the options. The Ninja was a great bargain compared to the Vitamix and Blendtec. I can't say how it compares in terms of performance to the higher-end products, but so far it has done exactly what I need it to do. I've used it for smoothies with frozen fruit and for slushes with chunks of ice and it works great. I've also used it to puree hot soups and sauces, to make mayo and pesto, and to make small batches of dough for fresh pasta, all with excellent results.
The limited number of speeds does take some getting used to, but a little finesse with the pulse button produces good results.

Rated 5 out of 5 by brittybratty I could use it everyday
I was unsure whether or not I would really use this machine, I wanted to make vegetable blended drinks and wasn't really thinking of using it for dough. It does do what it says it will... I recommend using some frozen fruit instead of ice cubes though. It just tastes better the less water you use. I'm afraid that the construction is not very durable, I got the floor model and the large blender pitcher was cracked, but the store I bought it from was way to far to go back just for a cracked pitcher. I own Kitchen Aids. Always have, always will. But let me tell you, making the pizza dough recipe in this machine is an absolute JOY! I went online and found the Ninja pizza sauce recipe and it's FABULOUS. I would keep this machine solely for its pizza making capabilities! I cut the flour in half and substitute one cup of wheat in with it, then make a veggie only pizza (sounds horrible, tastes GREAT!) and my die hard beef eating father was in love with them. And what a healthy alternative for me... this sounds so commercial, but my WHOLE FAMILY loves pizza night now! I make 3 batches of dough, split each in half for 6 12" pizzas. This is great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by minker sturdy and powerful
I ordered this product and it arrived in good condition in only a couple of days. Immediately used it to make homemade tomato juice. It did an excellent job, very powerful motor and sturdy components. We have used it just about every day since. We are very glad we were able to find this product at JCL for an excellent price.

Rated 1 out of 5 by PieTheBandit I wanted to like the Ninja
I was given the Ninja as a wedding gift and I was so excited about it. it claimed to be able to do everything. I think it was ok at smoothies, but so much got stuck in the corners that it was kinda nasty. It can NOT do cookie dough or batters. it has 3 speeds. super fast, suck in the room fast, and open a portal fast. and it overloads after 5 seconds of blending and I would have to unplug it before it would blend again... for 5 more seconds.
I went with a hand-me-down blender from the 70s that works like a charm.
