Rated 4 out of 5 by Toka I love my Ninja
I bought the Ninja blender for juicing and I'm glad I did! This thing will pulverize anything you can throw into it. This is the best kitchen gadget I've bought in a long time and I'm so happy with it. Put in fresh apples, a little sugar and cinnimon and get the best applesauce you ever had. Some cucumber, carrots, celery, and apples make an awesome dip for wheat thin crackers. I use it ever morning to make a breakfast smoothy from milk, yogurt, fresh/frozen fruit, and some instant breakfast...yummy! It actually makes a smoothy smooth with no lumps. This is an awesome product to have in the kitchen! I only gave a "good" rating because, since I use it so much, the heavy plastic just doesn't look new like a glass one would. But it's not heavy like glass which makes it easier to clean. I'm glad I chose this product and would buy it again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by FlanQueen AMAZING!
After reading the fair review I was a little nervous to buy this product. But I decided to go on some other websites to read reviews and they were much better. Therefore I decided to purchase the Ninja Blender and I am so glad I did!!
I have had it for a month now and use it every morning to make a smoothie- it crushes the ice perfectly and breaks down all my fruits and veggies! I am extremely happy with this purchase and so glad I didn't go off the first review I read.
It really does turn ice into snow in seconds! My husband uses it almost every night to make milkshakes and he even loves it.
I have gone through several blenders in the years and this one is amazing!
It also makes the best magaritas! It has to be the blades that go all the way up the shaft of the blender!
It is a MUST buy if you are a smoothie, milk shake or frozen drink lover!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by JennRosa This product does what it advertises. I use primarily for making smoothies, pulsing veggies for soups, and making dips. It's easy to use & clean.
Great product for the price and meets all my requirements in the kitchen. Smoothies, blending and liquefying fruits and vegetables, this Ninja is great!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Shopeachday Meets expectations and simple to use
Purchased blender to make smoothies. Product meets expectations and provides excellent smoothies. Had to adjust to using less ingredients than with previous blender. Probably because Ninja blends everything smoothly (no lumps or unblended ingredients. The same ingredients used in previous blender resulted in more smoothy in the Ninja. I was surprised there were only 3 speeds, but found out I don't need any additional speeds and I don't have to blend the ingredients for that long, which is a definite plus. This product is easy to use and the locking top guards against accidents. Ninja is an excellent product and normally I would say the value is good because of the price, but I got it on sale and was able to use a Penney's coupon, which brought the price down further.

Rated 2 out of 5 by dmperfection If you're easily fooled by gimmicks, this is your machine; if your looking for a kitchen worthy blender for serious cooking, this isn't it.
Yes, this machine will absolutely turn ice cubes into beautiful fluffy snow. However, the ridiculous design to have many blades means your contents will be splattering around the entire 72 oz pitcher, regardless of how much liquid or other items are in this thing. When I'm blending as part of my cooking, I like to have the blender run, open the top lid, add spices and additional items as it runs, and taste test until it's perfect. Unfortunately this design requires a locking lid - you do however, get a small pour spout opening to do your tinkering with spices and what not, but as I mentioned above, the contents are in such a continous splatter that opening the pour spout means you better be wearing some safety glasses and be ready to do some wiping down of counters, cabinets, and anything else that gets splashed on. If you plan on smoothies and crushing ice for margaritas, snow cones, or decide you want to make a pile of fluffy snow for a snow fight in the dead of summer - this is your machine!! If you plan to trully use this for cooking like I planned, you'd probably find it annoying stop, unlock, check, lock, restart, etc., etc. Needless to say, this is going back for and will go back to one of the tried and true Cuisinart, Oster, or KitchenAid.

Rated 4 out of 5 by kimbo9315 wow!
works great! i like the tall spiral blade that takes "blending" to a whole new level! no stopping to scrape the insides or pushing the tougher pieces downward to the blades! it made a smoothie in about 30 seconds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by zoom241 awesome
I dont know what the other reviews were whining about, but this blender will put the others to shame. Our primary use is for frozen fruit smoothies for 4 people in the morning and the other blenders ,Oster ,Kitchen Aid, Cuisinart , or whatever just cant deal with the frozen fruit making them basically blow up lol. When i first turned the thing on with the frozen fruit in it we were very satified and you will be too. Hands down the best blender we have used yet. Whatever you put in this thing , it doesnt have a chance..Also smoothies come out very smooth, and the design is great, and its not loud .I probably could put my other blender in this and make a smoothie lol.
