The Ninja Mega Kitchen System is a fantastically versatile kitchen appliance that can perform effectively as both a blender and a food processor. As a blender, the 1500W Mega Kitchen excels in creating some of the frothiest and tastiest smoothies imaginable in a short and efficient manner and could become a mainstay in your kitchen thanks to its powerful blending capabilities. Not only is the Ninja Mega Kitchen System a well-performing appliance that is effective in its blending performance, but its sheer power and versatility also allow it to function well as a food processor too. No matter how you end up using the Ninja Mega Kitchen System, you’ll find that it is a really useful and beneficial appliance that can give you a wider range of options in your kitchen.
The Ninja Mega Kitchen System is an impressively designed blender that ticks all the necessary boxes in terms of appearance. For an appliance that works well as both a blender and a food processor, you’d probably expect the Ninja Mega Kitchen System to carry quite a bit of weight. However, the Mega Kitchen weighs just 9.2 pounds, and while the majority of blenders would consider this to be fairly standard, you have to credit the Ninja Mega Kitchen System for keeping its weight to a minimum despite being a multi-functional machine. Although, with dimensions of 9.5 x 8.2 x 17.8 inches, the Mega Kitchen is certainly not a small machine. In fact, depending on the amount of space in your kitchen, you may find it difficult to find a suitable spot to place the Ninja Mega Kitchen System. Either way, the Mega Kitchen is not so obnoxiously big that you won’t be able to find anywhere to put it, so its size shouldn’t necessarily put you off.
If you can find space the Ninja Mega Kitchen System, you’ll see for yourself how attractive it looks in person, with its pretty design being suitable for a wide range of different kitchen environments. As far as blenders go, the Mega Kitchen is definitely one of the best looking that we’ve seen, so if looks can influence your decision making, the Ninja Mega Kitchen System may just be the blender for you. While the combination of a high-powered blender and a food processor is useful and beneficial, this could raise some questions regarding the durability of the Ninja Mega Kitchen System. There’s only a 1-year warranty on the Mega Kitchen, which is why you’ll want to be extra careful with the handling and maintenance of your model.
Powerful and versatile, the Ninja Mega Kitchen System is packed with enough great features to make it a really impressive blender that can do many great jobs. One of the Mega Kitchen’s most impressive features is the Total Crushing Technology that powers its blades to deliver the most satisfactory blending performance possible. Total Crushing Technology provides the Ninja Mega Kitchen System with an unbelievable amount of power that works with stunning effect, especially when crushing ice. Within seconds the Mega Kitchen can turn frozen ice cubes into snow, so just imagine what it can do to some of your other ingredients when making sauces, dips and smoothies!
Unlike many blenders, the Ninja Mega Kitchen System is powered by all of 1500W. In comparison, many blenders only blend with about 600W of power, so the Mega Kitchen puts many of its competitors to shame in that department. There are 3 variable speed settings on the Ninja Mega Kitchen System, as well as a pulse feature that allows for the smoothest blending result possible. Many blenders tend to offer an even wider variety of speed settings, and some even have more than one speed for their pulse mode, and this is one area where the Mega Kitchen comes up short. Despite the multifaceted nature of the Ninja Mega Kitchen System, you would still expect a blender of this strength to have a wider range of variable speeds. However, the Ninja Mega Kitchen System makes up for this with just how quickly and powerfully it blends ingredients despite only having a few speed settings.
Ease of Use
As well as being an immensely strong, multi-functional appliance, the Ninja Mega Kitchen System is quite an easy blender to use too. There is a total of six controllable buttons on the Mega Kitchen. The top two are the power button and pulse, while the others are the variable speed settings that are categorised as: dough (1), blend (2) and crush (3). There is also another button for single serve use of the blender. All of these buttons are particularly simple to operate, and the control panel of the Ninja Mega Kitchen System is very easy to use in general.
The Mega Kitchen comes with a 72oz blender pitcher with enough capacity for both personal use and blending for larger groups too. This capacity is larger than what is offered by many blenders, and the Ninja Mega Kitchen System could be the perfect option for you if you’re looking for a blender with the largest capacity possible. In terms of cleaning, you shouldn’t find that there are any real problems with cleaning the Ninja Mega Kitchen System. This is mainly because all of the accessories that come with the Mega Kitchen are BPA free as well as being completely dishwasher safe.
The only part of the Ninja Mega Kitchen System that is not dishwasher safe is the base, which can be easily cleaned with a cloth if it every becomes dirty. Even if you prefer to hand wash your appliances, it should not take you more than 10 minutes to wash the Ninja Mega Kitchen System and all of its parts with soap and make it look sparkly again. One drawback of the Ninja Mega Kitchen System is that the noise levels that it produces can be quite excessive, especially when on the higher speed settings. You may want to bear this in mind if you live in a busy household or you’ve got a baby in your home.
All in all, the Ninja Mega Kitchen System is high-powered multi-functional blender that effectively does its job in creating beautiful smoothies with great consistency in short periods of time. For a price of $115-180, the Mega Kitchen is somewhat of an affordable blender; not the cheapest on the market, but certainly not the most expensive. However, what you get from your $115-180 is a fast-working machine that performs well as both a blender and a food processor, and despite its drawbacks, which include its noise level and the amount of room it takes up, the Ninja Mega Kitchen System is a blender that offers great value for money and high levels of performance.
