Love it! I had Keurig machines forever but hate the waste the pods create. This is easy. And I love to froth my milk. Not missing Starbucks these days. But the machine didn't come with a reusable filter. Had to order from Ninja.

This coffee maker is so versatile! You can (almost) do everything with it! You fill up the water reservoir to the max, and you are good to go for a little while! Single serving, half carafe, full carafe, 4 oz expresso/cappuccino, iced coffee, and many more! I particularly like the manual drip stop. No more burned coffee on the heating plate! Also, the cup platform is a really cool idea if you want a single serving. All type of mugs and cups fit with or without the platform! I noticed that we dont waste coffee and water like before with our previous coffee maker! I find that the cone-shape filter helps to enhance the flavor and taste. Finally, the design is pretty cool in my opinion.

I am huge Ninja fan, and this specialty coffee maker did not disappoint, It has all the features I want, it can single brew in different sizes it has a frother for when I am feeling a bit more fancy. I like the size and style it's very modern fits in perfectly with my other appliances. Making coffee it's a breeze. I love that the water reservoir is removable so no spilling water.
The most awesome coffee maker station!
I love EVERYTHING about this coffee making station! I use it multiple times a day. I love the large water reservoir, and that you can make the coffee straight into your cup (or travel mug)! The only thing that I wish was easier was finding the permanent coffee filter basket, it uses the #4 cone shape and it wasn't easy to locate at the time of this review. Every feature was well-thought-out and designed. Definitely worth the money!
Awesome machine, removable water tank is THE BEST!
We've always had just "plain ole" coffee pots and were surprised how this machine has led us to expand our horizons. Coffee pot cycled twice as per instructions. The included recipe book makes it fun and easy to experiment. I made my wife a Macchiato and as she is a frequenter of that expensive coffee shop I was pleasantly surprised when she gave it a thumbs up! Also, the frothing the milk part was fun and using the "swing out" whisk on the machine's side made it easy. The whisk removes with a 1/4 turn for easy rinsing! We set ours up every night for the next morning and it was super easy. The time and start timer are very self explanatory as are the "coffee strength" settings. The greatest feature here is the water tank which removes completely for filling!! Most pots are on a counter under a cabinet so they need pulled out to pour in the water. This had been a nightly chore for us. No more with this removable tank, just great foresight on the manufacturer's part. The machine has a 'cleaning" cycle which we have not needed yet, it's button is clearly marked up front. The hotplate displays a red triangle warning light when hot, nice feature. The pot takes #2 cone filters or you can order a multi-use filter from the manufacturer for about $7. A pack of 100 cone filters it about $14 at Walmart. Great machine which is well engineered and truly quality made.
Fun and functional
This machine seemed really intimidating at first, especially while unboxing. Note that you want to be careful when taking everything out of the box because there are some individually wrapped pieces. I almost threw away the frother by mistake.
This machine is really fun to use and the manual is super helpful, but it may take a moment for you to find your groove/preferences for that perfect cup of coffee or specialty drink. As an initial side note — this machine is large, so it will take up a good chunk of your counter, especially when the frother is pulled out from the side (it folds in, so it’s not always sticking out from the machine).
Firstly, as coffee machines go, the main functionality is standard. You put water in the receptacle, which you can either fill to the max line or fill to the dash mark that aligns with how much coffee you’re going to make (e.g. cup, half a pot, etc.). You use a #4 cone coffee filter (which there a few included, but you can purchase at most stores), and use the included scoop to determine your desired amount of coffee grounds. The Ninja manual offers a suggested scoop amount based on serving size; however, I don’t like strong coffee, so I figured mine out based on my own taste preferences and type of coffee used. The machine does have a warming feature, so you can keep the carafe warm for up to 4 hours.
In terms of the specialty elements, you have hot or iced options. If you want to make an iced coffee, you fill the cup completely with ice, and then brew the coffee directly into the cup (which there is a pull-down cup stand for individual brew options). For a hot latte or cappuccino, you’ll enlist the frother. The instructions say to froth milk for 30-45 seconds, but I actually had to do it for a minute and a half to two minutes to get a good foam. Don’t try to steep the milk while frothing, just let the frother rest under the surface of the milk. For me, what worked best, was to froth the milk directly in the coffee cup (about a third to halfway full) and then pour the coffee over the milk and add any additional cream, sugar, or flavoring.
This is a high-speed machine, but it’s very quiet after the initial startup of the coffee brew; the frothing feature is also quiet. I like that there’s so many fold-out options. It’s an all-in-one machine, but you can tell Ninja did its best to make it user-friendly and to make it as streamline as possible.
Easy to use
The Ninja specialty coffee maker has everything a home needs for everyone in the family. My husband loves to make a cup right into his travel cup . I like the easy to fill water reservoir. The measuring scoop on the side is so convenient. Being able to make froth is so cool! For me the best feature is being able to set the warming plate for four hours! In the morning 2 hours goes by so fast and I always lose 1 cup but not any more. We have several Ninja products they all work great and last a long time .
Was skeptical, but lives up to the hype!
I heard about the Ninja ever since it came out, but was skeptical about its functionality and the hype surrounding it. I’m here to break down what this coffee maker can do and why it’s as good as drinks you buy at Starbucks or Coffeebeans, if not better – as well as what it lacks.
As far as coffee machines go, this is legit. This is a versatile coffee machine, at about the same size as a Keurig. It’s hard not to compare this to a Keurig… Surface area-wise, it’s the same size. The Ninja is just taller. It has a frothing extension that pulls out on the side (oh, so very convenient and neat, by the way), but it folds back up to the side of the machine, just tucked out of sight. This doesn’t use any pods, so for those who are all about convenience, you won’t be able to just pop a coffee pod in and press a button. HOWEVER, it’s not any more inconvenient nor any more work to add coffee grinds, and that’s where it really gets interesting. Coffee grinds are much more affordable than coffee pods, and they can range in taste based on the kind of beans you buy and if you ground it fresh. Regardless, the interesting part about this Ninja is where it really differs in convenience-based coffee, such as the Keurig; it is its coffee-making process. It does a whole brew-stop-brew-stop process that not only brings out the flavor of the coffee, but for some reason, no coffee pods I’ve ever tasted has come close to what this Ninja can brew. I’m no coffee expert, but I do know good coffee when I drink one. And I drink mine black! There’s a whole world of coffee-brewing science, from the perfect temperature, to the perfect force, to the perfect way. It’s really amazing, especially for people who have refined palates. It’s no matter if you don’t; any seasoned coffee drinkers know the difference between good coffee and meh so-so ones. That’s why places like Dutch Bros get long lines… just saying.
The multi-functionality of this is about the same as many good coffee machines. It has the frother that snaps back and forth with great ease and is machine-washable, it has the brew-delay where you can set a time to brew coffee for you for your mornings, it has different sizes to brew (cup, travel mug, carafe, half a carafe, etc), and 4 different ways of blending. I’m not saying that these features aren’t worthy of reviewing, but nowadays, any high-tech high-priced coffee machines will have many of these convenient features. The one thing that really sets this Ninja apart from the rest is the brewing process. It’s as much of an art as it is a science, and the Ninja has got this down pretty well with the 3 different programs (Classic, Rich, and Over Ice), plus a specialty blend. The specialty blend is perfect for those who like drip coffee as well. That’s a slow brewing process that is getting extremely popular because of the aroma and flavor it can bring out in coffee, especially with really good coffee beans. It is absolutely not just for making strong coffee. Drip coffee (or the Specialty Blend on this machine) achieves that process by slowing dripping. It’s so good, and one of my favorite features on this Ninja.
Everything is so well-built as well. It’s so sleek, so high quality. All the moveable/removeable parts just pops in and out of its place with such ease and gives this nice click or nice snap into place – it’s so satisfying. I love it. So easy to use. It’s not as difficult as it looks. 1. Plug it in, 2. Fill up the reservoir, 3. Put in the filter (reusable and paper both purchasable), 4. Add coffee grinds with the included coffee measuring spoon conveniently attached to the side of the ninja, 5. Place either a carafe or cup/mug in there, 6. Turn on the power, 7. Choose size, classic (or any of the 3 brew types). DONE. That’s how simple it is.
Here is what it possibly cannot do – latte art. I know that with latte art, you need to insert air into the frothed milk. With this frother, I’m not sure if it’s the same process as inserting air. This is something I haven’t tried, because I’ve never done latte art anyways. But I’m going to try it one of these days. The frother does leave a mess behind, and I think the company should come up with something to at least catch the milk froth drips.
As far as coffee machines go, this is an excellent choice for the price. You get quality coffee that easily and quickly pays for itself in no time, and depending on the coffeebeans that you buy, it can easily compare to something that places like Dutch Bros can make (and thereby saving you lots of money by making it yourself at home).
Ninja Coffee Maker
The Ninja Specialty Coffee Maker is a little larger than your run of the mill coffee maker. So, if you don't have a lot of counter space this coffee maker may not be for you. It comes with a carafe for a full pot brew, or you can fold down the small side stand to use a smaller cup for a single cup brew. Also, if you're on the go a lot, put a travel mug/cup under the spout and press the button for that quantity. The dial mechanism lets you to choose from 6 settings on the quantity you would like. There are three buttons that designate the strength of the brew, allowing the coffee to be held in the grounds longer for a stronger brew. I f you want to set a timer so your coffee is ready when you wake up it is a very easy coffee maker to set up. I would recommend this product.
