The Ninja Professional Blender is a kitchen appliance with the power to handle most food-processing tasks. This electric blender features 1,000 watts of power and stainless steel blades that make blending your food a breeze. It can crush, blend and puree food. It has a large 72-ounce pitcher, so you can make large quantities of food at once.
This juice blender has one of the most powerful motors you'll find among comparable devices. Its motor provides up to 1,000 watts of power, which allows it to easily blend most types of food. You can also crush ice with this device and puree food items. However, the Ninja Professional Blender cannot heat soups blended from cold ingredients. If you want to make piping hot soups with your blender, consider the Cuisinart Hurricane.
The Ninja's stainless steel blades cut through foods easily. Its 2-foot cord makes reaching an electrical outlet simple. One of its standout features is its 72-ounce pitcher. The size of this pitcher allows you to make large quantities of food at once. The pitcher is also free of BPA, a chemical that has been linked to health problems. Additionally, this Ninja pitcher is dishwasher safe, as are its blade assembly and lid.
The overall appearance of the Ninja Professional Blender is sleek. It is similar to many electric blenders, but it has a smooth base that makes cleaning up spills and other messes quick and simple. It is also small enough to fit in pretty much any area of your kitchen, even if you do not have a lot of counter space or have to place it under a cabinet.
This is one of the best blenders for smoothies, but it does not perform as well with butter or soup recipes. Butter- and vegetable-infused recipes did not retain enough taste when we tested them, but the smoothies were still rich in flavor.
The Ninja Professional Blender is covered by a one-year warranty. This isn't the longest warranty we have seen for this type of device, but it still provides plenty of coverage, so you won't have to worry about buying a new blender in a few months.
