I love a refreshing smoothie, and to be honest, who doesn't? Smoothie are especially nice when you have a blender that works! I always seemed to use the blenders that didn't work. Imagine my excitement when we received a Ninja blender for my wedding. Now we could have smoothies without the whole house smelling like a burning motor (I am not making this up).
Pros of a Ninja Blender
- The Ninja is a master at blending anything. From horchata to orange juice, this blender is incredible. I love how finely it blends! It is nothing less than a miracle.
- The Ninja blender is durable. Believe me when I say this blender is sturdy. The plastic is thick and ready to last. I feel our blender will last for years to come.
- It has a lot more safety features. As a teenager, I stuck a spoon through the hole on the top of the blender. Oh, and one more detail I should add as a side note, the blender was running. The spoon may or may not have rented from my hand. Okay, before you judge, I was trying to get the frozen fruit unstuck. Anyways this type of incidence would be much harder to accomplish with a Ninja. The pouring section is much smaller. Also, if the lid is open on the Ninja the machine won’t run.
- The single-serve is convenient. Can I say I love the single-serve? In the past, I would always make too much and end up with leftovers (that often would go bad). With the single-serve, this is no longer a problem.
- The Ninja blender is dishwasher safe. Everything but the motor can be thrown into a dishwasher.
Cons of a Ninja Blender
- It can be awkward to fit frozen items in the blender. It is sometimes hard to squeeze frozen fruit around the blade. The space is not there.
- The base is a pain to clean. I once overfilled my blender, and I have yet to get the base clean (over a year later). Let's say it is near nigh impossible.
- The single-serve is a pain to clean. I was horrified when my husband pulled out the seal around the blade of the single-serve blender. I had no clue it existed and therefore had never cleaned it. It was disgusting; there were all sorts of black food particles! Since our discovery, I have washed it every use, and it is a pain! I have not cleaned it for days at a time because I can't get the seal out. Note: Even if you just stick yours in the dishwasher you need to take out the seal.
- The blade is a pain to clean. The first time my husband cleaned this machine, he sliced his finger on the blade. It is just not cleaning-friendly. Note: This problem can be eliminated if you use a dishwasher.
- Did I mention this is a nightmare to clean! There have been oodles of times I haven't used the blender because I don't want to clean it. Do you get my point? THIS PRODUCT IS A NIGHTMARE TO CLEAN!
