Why I Love My Ninja Blender

Updated on October 20, 2014

My Ninja Kitchen System was a surprise gift from Santa Claus (AKA my sweet husband) this past Christmas, and I must admit I was slightly taken aback by this gift. In the past my husband had rarely given me appliances as gifts, and usually opted for jewelry. However, I would be remiss if I did not mention I have a history of burning up motors in several other blenders we owned, and that had happened again right around Christmas last year. Knowing how much I love to cook, he realized this product would really come in handy, and boy was he right!



The Ninja system I have featured here is the mega system, which is the model I own. The mega version includes the blender canister, dough mixing bowl, and two single serve cups with lids. This model is the most expensive and retails for approximately $200. There are other less pricey models available, which do not include extra pieces, such as the mixing bowl and single serve cups.

It was not long before I was experimenting with my new toy and trying out new recipes. I even learned to make my own pizza dough, which I had always wanted to do. I have developed some amazing smoothie recipes such as, my Banana Berrylicious Smoothie recipe, which you may have already seen featured here on Squidoo. The single serve cup attachment allows me to make different types of smoothies for myself and my husband, which is very convenient. The single serve cups have lids, so our smoothies can be made "to go." In addition, the ninja blender allowed me to complete routine tasks such as, mixing sauces and chopping veggies faster, which decreased my prep time. Who would not like that?


One of my favorite features of the Ninja is the automatic shutdown mechanism, which prevents the motor from overheating or burning up. Once the motor reaches a set temperature, the Ninja will shutdown and not run again until the motor has cooled off. The Ninja blender's blade attachments are extraordinarily sharp, which enables it to crush ice and frozen foods in seconds the way it does, so extreme caution should be used when removing and cleaning the blade attachments. If you have "little helpers" in the kitchen an adult should handle the blades at all times. All of the blade attachments are easily installed, removed, and are dishwasher safe.

If you love to cook, and are looking for a new blending system, I personally recommend the Ninja Mega Kitchen System. It is reasonably priced when compared to other similar products on the market. The Ninja system does everything an at home cook needs it to do and is simple to use. I love my Ninja blending system and thank "Santa" for it often.

      Sounds like a great product, my wife recently bought the Nutri Bullet and seems to really like it. This seems to be more powerful. Thanks for the Banana Berrylicious Smoothie Recipe :)

      Thank you for this review. I love smoothies. I'm not completely happy with my blender...but frankly, I thought the Ninja was an overpriced gimmick. Glad to know that it's not and that it is worth the money.

      Sounds like a great system!! When we need a new one will definitely check out the Ninja! Our blender is old and needs replacing, blades are wearing out. Thanks for the lens!!!

      @Ruthi: Thanks for the comment Ruthi!! The flexibility of the Ninja System's multiple size containers is one of its many great features. The canister allows you to make large volumes of smoothies, daiquiris, pina coladas, etc... and keep them cold until you are ready to serve!! You can also juice with this product if you are into juicing.

      My blender is very old. It still works fine, but the motor sounds tired. You've convinced me -- when I do need a new one, I want a Ninja! Thanks for all the info.

      I would love your Ninja! Right now I have the Magic Bullet, which is fine since it is basically just me, but I would like the ability to prepare pitchers of smoothies when I have guests, rather than making them one by one.
