Rated 5 out of 5 by GadgetsAreMyWeakness Wonderfully smooth frozen drinks
I have been looking for a way to get that resort-style Pina Colada to sip on hot days by the pool, but no home blender can compete with the $2500 machines and specialty mixes found at those resorts. I've been blending coffee drinks for family in my standard Kitchen Aid blender which is fine, but doesn't give me the smoothness I desire. It strains and must be turned off and scraped of the contents throughout the process of blending icy drinks. My disappointment with the consistency sent me back to searching for a replacement at-home blender. I am a definite impulse shopper and have the appliances (and spent cash) to prove it...cabinets full of unused gadgets designed for just one function that I "couldn't live without!" Yard sales have revolved around many of these unused items and it just didn't make sense to buy yet another high-ticket item which would sit with a tag for a few pennies on the dollar at some future yard sale. After reading reviews on top-shelf blenders, I was again being lured by the my thought that the best product comes only with a hefty price-tag. I am so glad common sense and frugality guided me toward the Ninja Master Prep Food Processor. At only 400 watts, and $39.92 price tag, I was telling myself that I would prove it didn't work and justify the luxury model to my husband for a Christmas gift later. Well, I am happy to report that I made my first mocktail and loved the results! I tossed a about 6 ice cubes with a little Coco Real and Pineapple juice into the Ninja and pulsed a few times, then held steady for about 30 seconds. The result was a perfectly smooth, creamy texture of goodness that easily passed through a straw.
Assembly and operation are so simple, and clean up is a snap. I am very pleased with my purchase of the economical blender. I have not used the other food prep assembly, but hope to have as good of results when the time comes to use it this summer.
Rated 5 out of 5 by dragonheartoncart Great for new moms!
When my kids were babies, I used a full sized food processor to puree food to save money and ensure no salt or allergens. It wasted a lot of food sticking it into the crevices, and you always had to check that everything was on tight or it flung the lid off and made a mess. Later, when the blades on it came apart, I spotted the Ninja when I was wanting to chop lots of meat for making meat pasties for my social group, so I bought one. Not only did it have the 2 sizes so you could make a little or a lot, but the top control lock system was SO much easier to use without a lot of time and fuss! I immediately got one for my daughter too. And now my son has a daughter, I have recommended one to my daughter-in-law. I have had mine 3 years now, and no signs of wear!
Rated 5 out of 5 by HealthyinTexas A must for the kitchen
I've used this product for about 2 weeks now and love it. It makes my blender hang it's head in shame because it kicked it's rear cord all over the kitchen. I make allot of smoothies, but my blender had a major problem chopping and blending the frozen fruit. Very frustrating. The thing wouldn't even chop ice. What a loser! But the Ninja chops and blends great in a matter of seconds. It comes with the pitcher, just like a normal blender, but works so much better with the double blades, and also comes with the chopper for chopping veggies or anything else. You only have to pulse it a couple of times, and voila, you're done. No more irritating someone that's trying to watch tv by fighting with a loud, annoying blender for 30 minutes. Anyway, hope this helps. I'm sure not everyone will be happy this product, but, you can't please everybody. I'm happy with it to say the least.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Kelleyswife Great powerful little smoothie maker!
I had no Idea how truly great this blender would be until I got it!!! We have used it every day to make smoothies and when the weather turns cold I know I will use it to make creamed soups. The two blade system is unique to the Ninja, I believe, and that is what makes all the difference in the world! The ease of use is also a great selling point and it is a lot easier to use and store than my food processor. I don't think it will chop up cabbage for cole slaw, but it does great pureeing, creaming and blending! We have had the Ninja for two weeks and have used it A LOT!
Rated 5 out of 5 by ToschoolForCOOl NINJA REALLY WORKS!
Went to costco not to long ago and fell in love with an amazing do-it-all blender. So after realizing how much it costs I decided to shop around. Having compared many blenders, and their watts, I found an affordable $40 NINJA BLENDER at Walmart :)...........................I tried it as soon as I was home!!! I love it. I know some reviews say that even after you blend and blend the ice, its not smooth enough, the trick is to let it sit in the fridge just in time for the ice to melt and Wwaalllaaaa......You have yourself a good tasting smoothie!! I love it, I went to the local farmers market and bought lots of fruit, froze lots of it and now when I need a smoothie for the morning I blend the night before and grab to go in the morning!!! Easy clean up!! It take a good 5 min to blend, and clean up!! :) So worth it!
Rated 5 out of 5 by CaptainSam Good value Good Product
Well designed, easy to use and clean plus the small unit does not take up much space on counter. Makes graet salsa and guacamole.
Rated 4 out of 5 by BeeTx Good but not what I expected
I ordered this blender /food processor because we started green smoothies. While I was waiting on this to come I bought a 600 watt G.E. in my store here since this one wasn't available. This one is not near as powerful as the G.E. . However, the first thing I did with this one was make snow! It really was snow , and here in Texas that was nice!! There was only one chunk of ice and it was small. I made myself a sugarfree snowcone! I liked the idea of having a food processor and the 3 blades seem like a good idea. Like I said this is good but not as good as the G.E so I kept the G.E. because of the power and the glass pitcher.

Rated 4 out of 5 by CalGurl Practice will make it better
I actually purchased to make smoothies, but I love it for other stuff too. I just have to get used to the push and when to stop for the preferred chopping. Makes the best guac and sauces!
Rated 5 out of 5 by totallyvictorian Fantastic Product!
This product has exceded my expectations. My daughter has to have crushed ice
daily to keep from being dehydrated..and this Ninja does an excellent job. The ice is
truly "snow cone ice"..
It did take alittle longer to receive than normal site to store items, but was worth the
Rated 5 out of 5 by MrsKrum I don't usually write reviews!
No, I don't usually write reviews, but I HAD to write one for this. I would NEVER buy something just because it was on TV, and I rarely ever buy something that IS on TV. But I bought this blender for my husband's birthday yesterday after doing a LOT of researching on drink blenders, and I can't believe how amazing it is! It turns ice into snow like a dream (great for the kids' snow cones!), mixes margaritas that are bar-quality, and it even does great with ice cream drinks! I can't say enough good about this blender. I'm glad I didn't spend mega bucks on a "professional" margarita blender, because this has totally exceeded my expectations, and I might just have to buy another one so we can have his-and-hers matching blenders!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Jutta Best thing I bought in a long time. It will chop anything and everything. When you make Smoothies you will not have any Ice chunks in there at all not like other mixers or blenders.
Rated 5 out of 5 by starryeyedkel Amazing!
Crushes ice with ease, good design with mechanism on top that minimized leakage into the functioning parts (unlike other "magic" blenders). Easy cleaning. Haven't had it very long but it seems like it will be durable in the long run. Like that I had color options. I don't have to replace seals like other "magic" blenders. The food processor is easier to use than most I've ever used. I could go on and on - I love it!
Rated 5 out of 5 by angelsite2850 This is the blender of my life!
I love this blender! It's super fun to use and YES! It crushes ice for super smooth smoothies. It also processes food beautifully as well! It's a wonderful product for a such of a low price.
Rated 5 out of 5 by LogoGirl really smoothe & easy
Never could get my blender to totally crush ice. A friend told me about the Ninja. It takes ice cubes and "whatever you mix in" and makes a perfect creamy smoothe drink. I give it an A++
Rated 5 out of 5 by smsnxoxo Awesome!
Normally dont give reviews but just wanted to let people know this product is awesome! Your saving sooo much time, bc the food processor chops your veggies up in less than 30 seconds! Unbelieveable! Smoothie maker is great too! Mostly use the food processor, wish they had it in a bigger size.
Rated 5 out of 5 by newblsh Very good product
We have this blender for about month, and it is much better than the old blender that we have. This is definitely worth the money. It is very easy to use and clean. I highly recommend this product to anyone.
Rated 5 out of 5 by WitchyArmyWife very good
This product was worth every cent i use it all the time and would highly recommend it.
Rated 5 out of 5 by NCSouthernBelle Worth the Money!
I love my Ninja, and you can't beat the value - two gadgets for the price of one. It may not be as sexy (or as pricey) as my Cuisinart blender or food chopper, but it does the job! It's not often that you find a product that really, really delivers, but this one actually does, and it makes some of the creamiest smoothies. I can't wait to start making margaritas!
Rated 5 out of 5 by GettingFitIn2011 Exceeded My Expectations
I purchased this product based on a friend's recommendation. But I was still skeptical about the Ninja's ability to live up to what the product information said it could do. I was pleasantly surprise that it could do what the product review said it could. And it's quick too!
Rated 5 out of 5 by GrammieRhonnie GREAT! Product
After reading the reviews I thought I would have some chunks in my smoothies. But they were none, and I could make it really thick like an ice cream. My husband likes the shakes I make for him.
Rated 5 out of 5 by sewbusy4u Love it! I have always wanted something to chop ice and this really does the job. Smothies are good and the small containers chop vegetables also.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Carreras It was the best prep food processor i've had!!
At first i thought it wasn't going to work as good as i've read, but you know what it was the best food processor i've ever had.
Rated 5 out of 5 by lakerat1 You'll Love This One
This was definetly worth the money. Better than any blender I've ever owned. Easier to clean since the blades come out. Makes drinks really smooth. No ice chunks at all. In fact, when using the little bowl for food processing you have to be careful not to get foods like guacamole too smooth.
Rated 5 out of 5 by 3kids3cats1dog ~LOVE IT~
Very easy to use, very fast and it chops ice in seconds.
Rated 4 out of 5 by gharridg A great kitchen gadget
the Ninja is a great addition to any kitchen!! the only thing that I would like to see is a variable speed option.
Rated 4 out of 5 by skipper309 Don't hesitate to purchase. It really works
I was a little leary about its ability to chop ice but it is excellent in that respect. Overall it was a surprise as to how well it works. I use it mainly to make smoothies. Be sure to put the ice in first and then the other ingredients.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Cabin51 A must have in the Kitchen
This machine whips up a smoothie in seconds and crushes ice into tiny chips. The blending container is large and has a spout for easy pouring. The second smaller container is great for chopping up onions and other vegetables.
This is a great product, especially for the price.
Rated 5 out of 5 by KnotMyName great blender
This is a wonderful product. It's great for making frozen drinks!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Chicky0143 ICE CUBES BEWARE!!! ;)
A friend of mine recommended this blender to me and several others after owning hers for 2+ years with RAVE reviews! She's into health like me and blends ALL sorts of things daily! So it's absolutely been "put to the test" for sure! My #1 reason for choosing this Blender? "ICE CUBES!" Can it crush ice well??? That was my BIGGEST question? My friend said "Absolutely!!" So I decided to purchase it. Wow was she right!! This is a "Smoothie Fan's" Dream-Machine! I am in love.
It also makes that AMAZING crushed ice like you get in restaurants (often in mixed drinks, although I am not a drinker it's still gives me a million possibilities for myself and our kids!!) Clean up is SUPER simple. Love that. It doesn't "SHAKE" or "VIBRATE" on my counter-top like my other (much more expensive!) blenders have done! Which is SUPER great! I love that the actual container isn't glass! My last blender (WELL over $100) broke in no time due to it falling over in the sink! ....nice.
I don't have to worry about that now! ....very nice ;)
5 Stars from me! AWESOME value/quality would recommended to ANYONE who likes to blend, grind or process! :)
Rated 3 out of 5 by frequentwalmartbuyer It will cut your fingers.
I bought this product because I needed a blender that was easy to clean and easy to use. The device does both but you will have many cuts if you don't protect your hands. The blades are super sharp. There is no way to clean without touching the blades. I recommend you use paper towels when handling them.
