Why Does Research Matter?
Ninja Blenders have always gotten good reviews, but with so many different models, choosing one can be overwhelming. That's why we decided to research and review Ninja blender models and create a comparison of the top choices. A blender that can crush ice and ingredients to a smooth consistency with ease is obviously important, but there are other factors to consider as well. For example, some blenders offer additional features that can make them more useful in the kitchen. The motor and blades will make a big difference in blender quality. We also looked at ease of cleanup after use.
Why We Recommend the Ninja Intelli-Sense
The Ninja Intelli-Sense has a lot of exciting features and functions. It comes with four different vessels: a 72-ounce Total Crushing Pitcher, 24-ounce Single-Serve Blender Cup, 8-Cup Precision Processor Bowl, as well as an Auto-Spiralizer. Because of the base's Smart Vessel Recognition, it automatically recognizes which vessel you've attached to the base and will reflect this by displaying a unique menu of Smart Programs on the touchscreen display! You can use this one appliance to make everything from ice cream to smoothies, snow cones to dough, dressings to spiralized vegetables! What used to require multiple appliances, now only needs one!
How the Ninja Chef Impressed Us
The Ninja Chef offers high-speed blending that users found blended creamy smoothies, even green smoothies that often can result in a grainy, fibrous texture with lower quality blenders. It can also crush ice with ease for frozen alcoholic beverages. The Ninja Chef offers both 10 pre-set Auto iQ Programs that remove the guesswork, as well as 10 manual speeds if you prefer to take control and customize your recipes. If you want to set and forget your blender, just engage the timer function. There is an automatic cleaning function as well –add hot water and some dish soap to the pitcher, and then press the "clean" button on the blender base.
What the Ninja Professional Offers
The Ninja Professional is a good choice for users who prefer a simpler blender without all of the fancy pre-set programs that other Ninja blenders offer. This blender has three speed settings, in addition to a pulse setting, so you can use it for blending, pureeing, and even chopping/ingredient preparation. There is also a convenient single-serve option, so you can directly attach one of the included 16-ounce Nutri Ninja Cups to create a personalized smoothie to go. Each of the two cups comes with its own to-go lid. Otherwise, the large pitcher is big enough to serve multiple people at once!
Why You Should Consider the Nutri Ninja Auto-iQ
The Nutri Ninja Auto-iQ comes with three different sized cups so that you can make exactly how much you want. The accompanying lids are perfect for taking your beverage on the go. Because you blend right in the cup, it cuts down on dishes since you don't have to wash a separate blender pitcher. The Auto-iQ program is designed to detect exactly what your drink needs, blending, pulsing, and pausing in unique patterns. The countdown timer lets you know how much time you have left. The blades are designed for breaking down even whole fruits and vegetables – no need to cut and peel first!
The right Ninja blender for you is going to depend on what exactly you want it to do and how much food/drink you want to be able to blend at once. Some come with larger pitchers while others offer smaller-sized cups. Additionally, you may prefer more pre-programmed settings rather than less. Our top recommendation even comes with a spiralizer attachment and can easily replace multiple kitchen appliances vying for counter space. With wattage ranging from 1000 to 1500, no matter what these Ninja models are capable of blending ingredients until they are smooth and creamy.
