Other Important Info About Ninja Blenders
These blenders feature a unique cord storage built into the base so that you can keep you countertops clutter free. Also, the base features a non-slip feature to keep the appliance from slipping and sliding on your counters.
As compared to other blenders on the market like the Vitamix for example, these blenders range from 1000 watts of power (and up) for a lower price. Most blenders in this price range (about $100 USD) will not be able to handle frozen fruits and crush ice with the same effectiveness. If you plan on spending in this price range, the Ninja Pro Blender or Ultima will not let you down.
You can expect your blends to come out frothy and smooth after about 20-40 seconds, compared to competitors’ models (Blendtec and Vitamix) which will not puree the frozen fruits as well. These Ninja models feature the “Ninja 6 Blade” technology which is able to turn ice cubes to snow in a matter of seconds.
When it comes to cleanup, you can either rinse with warm water and a dollop of dish soap, or you have the option of removing the blades and placing the container in your dishwasher.

Anything Else I Need to Know About the Ninja Blender and Appliance Line?
The great thing we learned about using Ninja products is that they come with awesome recipes for each of their devices! For instance, when looking at the Ninja Ultima, there are many new smoothies that we were able to make. And we should also mention that they were much easier to make with this blender than with others, simply because of the new blade technology.
Ninja products are pretty much available everywhere, but you can typically get the best deals online at retailers like Amazon. Most customers end up getting the products from Amazon and other retailers because more often than not, you can receive free shipping or get steep discounts from ordering a few different products.
