REVIEW: Ninja Ultima Blender

photo 1I always used to think that all blenders were the same so it really didn’t matter which one we bought. This remained true, until I was given the opportunity to test out a Ninja Ultima Blender. Honestly, I hadn’t really ever heard of the Ninja blender, so I wasn’t anticipating anything different from other blenders that I’ve used in the past. I can officially say, that the Ninja Ultima Blender is in a class all it’s own!
photo 1 (1)Upon looking at the box, I’ll admit, I was slightly intimidated.  Not to mention how excited my husband got over it’s arrival.  This blender appeared sleek and high tech, which automatically made think that it would be more complex to use. Ninja has proven me wrong. My Ninja was beyond easy to set up and put together and I was very excited to test it out.
The box itself is perfectly packaged and comes with a ton of goodies. Apart from the blender itself, which boasts a XL – Extra Large 72oz pitcher and easy pour spout, included in the box were two 16 oz single serve cups with sip and seal lids. These have been great for me when I want to make a quick smoothie before heading out to work in the morning. The Ninja Ultima also comes with a booklet of over 25+ recipes to try including smoothies, soups, sauces, desserts, and more!
The Ultima has very clear cut and simple directions for ways to maximize your usage. There are so many things you can do with this blender!!! I decided to try my hand at two of the recipes provided in the book, the “Top O’ the Mornin’ smoothie, and the Raspberry Coco Yoyo – both of which were delicious. I’m looking forward to making the Autumn Latte Frappe next!
What sets the Ninja Ultima Blender apart from other standard blenders is, in my opinion, its strength and versatility. The Ninja Ultima is powerful, and durable. The capabilities seem endless. You can use it to make smoothies, juices, nut butters, and purees. You can also use it for food processing, mixing batters, crushing ice, and more… dare I say, making baby food too. The dual stage blending technology that you’ll find in the Ninja Ultima is a force to be reckoned with. Even my husband, a self proclaimed skeptic, has been won over. It has proven to be the most incredible blender I have ever laid my hands on! I see the Ninja Ultima being put to good use in this house, and I can say with the utmost certainty, it is a great buy. Chances are, you will get this sudden urge to use your new appliance on a daily basis, because it is THAT good.

Things We Love

  • The dual stage blending technology makes sure you get silky smooth blends perfect for making your own baby food
  • It costs a mere 1/3 of the price of the equally powerful Vitamix 750
  • Detachable parts are dishwasher-safe and 100% BPA-free!

Things to Consider

  • This blender takes up a decent amount of space on your counter top.  Unless you have room to spare, you will have to store it elsewhere in between uses
  • While powerful, the Ninja can be loud when in use
