"The Ninja Professional will make a great addition to anyone’s kitchen, making food preparation much more comfortable and quicker."
If you’re looking for a blender that’s powerful, performance-ready and perfectly sized for family or single use, then look no further than the Ninja Professional blender. The 1100 watts on this top-quality blender make it ideal for quick and easy use, whizzing up even the most robust ingredients in no time at all. When reading Ninja Professional blender reviews, you’ll find that this blender won’t compare with other models on speed settings or flexibility. But this professional performing blender is an absolute must if you want to be able to cater for family use, thanks to its 72 oz container. It's also ideal for single serve use as it includes two 16 oz containers for life on the go. Costing between $90 and $110, the Ninja Professional will make a great addition to anyone’s kitchen, making food preparation much more comfortable and quicker.
The overall design of the Ninja Professional blender is exceptionally stylish and would complement any theme it is placed into thanks to its modest but trendy gray finish. As the size of the larger container on this blender is 72 oz, it does make the Professional one of the largest blenders on the market. The measurements of this blender are 8 x 6 x 17 inches, so it might be just too big to fit under kitchen cabinets but will look dazzling on the countertop where it will always be easily accessible for daily use. This high-quality blender weighs just over 7 and a half pounds so it can be stored away or brought out again with ease as it’s not too heavy. It’s not very bulky either like you can find with other larger blenders, adopting a sleek and stylish appearance instead. Although the Ninja Professional is made of plastic which can hinder its durability, many happy customers state that this blender will stand the test of time.
For a low-to-mid priced blender, you get an exceptional number of features with the Ninja Professional. There aren’t any pre-set functions to speak off, but you usually only find these on the higher end models where you would expect to pay more for them. This blender does, however, come with four speed settings in total, including a pulse setting for those quick blasts. There aren’t as many speed settings on this blender compared with the Ninja Chef Blender, but still enough that make it more than capable of blending the toughest ingredients. The pulse button must be held down during blending which isn’t really a problem as it needs to be done in short bursts anyway, and the other three seeds run until you turn them off. This means you can get on with other things if necessary while your ingredients are blending away.
The blades on the Ninja Professional are stainless-steel, with the larger container adopting a blade system that incorporates three 2-prong steel blades along a plastic pylon and the single-serve containers have a 6-prong blade for separate use. The blades are exceptionally sharp, which is great for cutting fruit and vegetables with ease but also means the risk of injury is greater as they are quite fiddly to remove, so be careful when using the blades! This blender uses total crushing technology which pulverizes the fruit and vegetables in seconds which is ideal or if you’re in a rush and need the ingredients blended quickly. The Ninja Professional blender also has the capability of blending whole fruits and vegetables, including the tough stalks, so you get the benefits of all the nutrients and vitamins. Some customers have stated if you blend the whole fruit or vegetable the texture is less smooth and more textured, but this may just require a little more pulsing to get the consistency you prefer.
The Ninja professional is also reasonably versatile, as it’s excellent at making frozen creations such as frozen drinks and ice cream. Not all blenders can tackle ice like this one can so it’s good to know it has the sturdiness to tackle more robust ingredients. Unfortunately, this blender cannot knead dough or heat soup, but it can make a range of different recipes from smoothies, purees, nut butters, to cutting ingredients for salsas, dips and grinding coffee beans and nuts. You can use the Ninja Professional for a variety of recipes and can customize the speed and consistency to suit your taste. It will undoubtedly come in very useful in a variety of kitchen tasks.
Ease of Use
Usability may be the factor that lets this blender down somewhat, but there are still elements of the Ninja Professional that make it an easy blender to use. The two 16 oz ‘Nutri Ninja’ cups are excellent additions for when you want to be healthy outside the house, as they come with to-go lids which mean you can take them just about anywhere. The self-serving container is also super easy to lock into place on the power base of this blender, as it’s very similar to the Ninja Fit in that you put the cup in upside down with the blade attachment secured and operate by a separate single serve button. The larger container is much fiddlier to secure and can get frustrating at times, as there are specific procedures you have to follow to lock into place and if you don’t, the blender won’t work and will flash red until you get it right. The lid is quite tight to remove but once removed, it can either be washed by hand or placed into the dishwasher. The single serve cups and lids are also dishwasher safe which is extremely useful and a great time saver.
Overall, the Ninja Professional blender will make a great assistant in the kitchen to cope with all of your blending needs. It’s versatile in that it can make a range of different products thanks to its total crushing technology and is suitable for either for large families or single serve use. Although there are some issues with this blender such as incredibly sharp blades, tricky to clean and unsuitable for kneading dough, this blender is still great value for money and is highly valued by its customers. Unfortunately Ninja only includes a 1-year limited warranty with this blender, but all in all, it’s reliable, capable of performing very well and comes with the personal blending accessory for individual use.
