Two weeks ago, my twenty year old daughter had her tonsils removed. Needless to say, smoothies were a big part of her diet-especially on those days when her throat was really sore. Boy- was I happy we had recently replaced our old, cheap blender with the Ninja!!
I’ll admit it, the thing looks like something you’d see on TV for 6 easy payments of $19.99. It’s not at all attractive. That was one of the main reasons I hesitated, but the excellent reviews I read convinced me to give it a try.
What can I say, this thing is the bomb! I don’t know how we ever put up with our old wimpy blender. Margaritas, smoothies, cream soups, salsa, nuts, ice cubes..it crushes, chops, purees, dices, mixes and blends everything with ease. I love that it came with a food processor, a large pitcher and a single serving container as well.
I picked ours up (in the configuration above) at Bed Bath & Beyond because their 20% off coupon brought the price down even lower than Amazon’s. ($144)
So yeah, it’s ugly and loud, but it works like a dream- I totally recommend it.
