Is it strange that I have a favorite appliance? I’ve always loved having a blender. Smoothies and blended coffee drinks are my absolute favorite. I got a really good blender a few years ago that I’ve gotten a lot of use out of but it hardly compares to the new Ninja Ultima Blender I just received. This powerful blender blends like nothing I’ve ever seen. It features groundbreaking, patent pending Dual-Stage Blending Technology — more than just a blade at the bottom. This second, longer blade is removable but recommended for most purposes and it works like magic. For a large batch of smoothies, 5 quick pulses and a short blending period makes the perfect, well blended smoothie. Supported by 1500 watts and 2.5 peak horsepower, this blender is capable of whole nutrient juicing by pulverizing whole fruits and vegetables rather than having to strain out the pulp.
The attributes of the [amazon_link id=”B00939FV8K” target=”_blank” ]Ninja Ultima Blender[/amazon_link] are comparable to the Vitamix 750 but at one third of the cost (starts at $199). Here are some additional features:
- Ninja’s signature Total Crushing™ blades that work in unison with newly developed High Speed Cyclonic blades
- PRO Variable Speed with a range of speeds from 3,700 to 24,000 RPM
- All detachable parts are dishwasher-safe and crafted of 100 percent BPA-free plastic
- Suction cups on the bottom secure the base firmly to the countertop
Ninja Ultima Blender comes with:
- One extra-large, 72 ounce multi-tasking pitcher
- Two 16 ounce Single Serve cups with Sip & Seal™ to-go lids
- One 8 cup capacity food processor bowl — make up to 2 pounds of dough in 30 seconds!
- An inspiration guide which includes some pretty awesome recipes for all sorts of things from soups to beverages.
This hands free blender delivers unmatched silky smooth, grit free consistency making it great for preparing everything from perfectly smooth soups and beverages, to grinding meats, chopping herbs, emulsifying dips and mixing cake batters.
There are so many things I love about this blender. It super easy to use — the pitcher locks on the base with a quick twist while the lid functions similarly with release button. The blender will not function without both of these safety measures in place. There is a pulse lever and a speed dial to control your blending tasks. I love that it comes with single serve cups with Sip & Seal lids. These make it super easy to blend up a breakfast to go with protien powder, some fruit, oatmeal, yogurt or whatever you like to get going in the morning! They screw right on to the blender so you can blend your ingredients right inside the cup!
Cleaning is also a snap. It’s dishwasher safe or you can fill half way with water, add a couple of drops of dish soap and pulse the blender 5-10 times to clean it!
I typically only use my blender for beverages but the Inspiration guide really has inspired me and I can’t wait to try some of the recipes like cream of broccoli soup and sun dried tomato sauce.
