Ninja blender

As you can tell.. It's about midnight and a ninja infomercial popped on. Does anybody have one? They got really good reviews on amazon and best buy. I'm looking at the bl770 series.

    I don't have one but want it super bad. Looks as close as you could get to commercial grade without the sticker shock.

    Yeah. My wife has been wanting a vitamix forever. We both make smoothies everyday so having individual cups that the smoothie blends in is a huge plus.i, curious about the lifespan of the plastic container to see if it has any flaws being that of plastic. So hopefully someone will chime in

    We have one -- our second. The first was replaced at no cost after something broke. I honestly don't remember what broke and I'm not waking SWMBO to confirm. Something makes me want to say it had to do with the lid. Maybe a later post for that. Anyway, Bed Bath and Beyond replaced it with no fuss.

    It works very well. The wife uses it at least 4 times a week to make smoothies with both fresh and frozen fruit/veggies. The motor and blades have never put up a fuss from all the junk we put in there.

    The new vitamix 6300 has a smoothie setting where you hit the button once and it runs through a program so you don't have to run through the speeds. its really handy takes about 45 seconds and it will make anything smooth liquid. I put dried dates in my protein smoothies and they disappear.

    We have one and really like it. We got the one with different size blades and containers. Love it. Very cheap for the quality. Understand the Vitamix issue, but very expensive for me

    Had the same questions myself. After much research, I bit the bullet and bought a Vitamix. Would strongly recommend you do the same. You will burn through a bunch of lesser quality blenders while the vitamix keeps going. Saves money in the long run. The thing is a beast!

    Yes, this is the same mentality many of us when buying a BGE .... I can't say it any better.

  • I found Target had the best price. We use ours to make a lot of smoothes.

    We have the Ninja, I haven't used it myself but the wiff really likes it. We bought it mainly for frozen adult beverages and it work great. Fast and easy. It gets used a lot on Fri and Sat evenings, matter of fact she is making us some Brown Ladies right now.

    Have the Ninja and it has been great.  Use it for frozen cocktails, smoothies and protein shakes mainly.  Got it at BB&Beyond with a 20% off printable coupon.

    By the viatmix and never buy another blender again. I've been using mine daily for about 6 years now and not a single problem.
    I knew all the rules, but the rules did not know me.

    plus one on the Ninja.  Wife uses it at least once a day.  We burned out a Cuisinart just past the warranty and then went Ninja.   Been blending the #$%$@% out of everything ever since.   Really like it!

  • We ended up getting the bl770. The mixing bowl of it... Broke already while cutting up some beans... Their customer service is great though. Already got another one on the way... Hopefully it just broke from mistreatment at best buy
