I own a bunch of beach rental condos where every blender I ever bought under $XXX was a disaster, with a burned out motor in less than 12 months due to the heavy daquiri and margarita-making needs for crushing ice. I have just bought my EIGHTH blender - just like this one - including my primary home and lakehouse and have only replaced ONE in 5 years of owning these. It seriously blows away anything else and I'm a smoothie drinker almost every morning. LOVE LOVE LOVE the one-piece polycarbonate design so you're nor removing a gasket to clean it. One piece with no parts to worry about. I purchase a ton of items on OS due to have the rental homes but this is probably my number one repeat purchase.

I am a professional cook and i use my blender almost every other day for chopping, blending, mixing and pureeing ... Kitchen aid is a good kitchen brand and as expected the blender delivers what is expected out of it ... It does crushes ice efficiently ... Makes nut butter (i did almond) , makes good hollandaise, and perfect for smoothies and margaritas ... I have even made ice cream and sorbets with it and the result is creamy and thick ice cream ... The color is very good , goes perfectly with my red and white kitchen .. Though its refurbished i cannot spot a thing in it which would make it look like it has been used earlier ... Looks just like new ... But half the price !! I am satisfied with it so far , great value for money and a good buy if u dont have the budget to shell out 400 bucks on a blender

First of all, I have to admit that I am a bit of a kitchen appliance junky. I am always looking for the perfect appliance or cooking implements that will perform multiple jobs. I have a number of cutting, chopping, liquefying for drinks type appliance, including Nutri Bullet, a Vitamix, a Ninja Master Prep Pro, and a Magic Bullet 17 pc. system in addition to a few other choppers by Cuisinart and Black and Decker. First of all, some of the reviewer dinged the reviews because they got cut on the blades. Are the blades sharp - you-bet-cha. Can you get cut on them? Of course, they are sharp, and they need to be. Heck, I have cut myself on the Cuisinart mini chopper blades when I was in a hurry to clean them, and I also sometimes cut myself with some of the sharp knives that I have. Is this the fault of the product? Of course not. When you are handling any sharp objects you need to be careful so you don't cut yourself, but sometimes it happens. As for any clittety-clack reported by one reviewer, I haven't heard any of that. Is it loud? - It is, but then so are any of my other high powered mixers and choppers. Even my Kitchen Aid mixer is loud, and the Nutri Bullet can be deafening. Any appliance with a lot of power is going to be noisy, and the volume often depends on what you are processing. Even the Magic Bullet can be noisy if you are pulverizing something hard like cinnamon sticks. If you are sensitive to noise, you might be better off mixing and chopping by hand. So, on to the review for the Ninja Mega Kitchen System 1500. I did have the Ninja 1100 system, and sold it on Ebay. It didn't have the power that I needed or expected. I bought this system, and I really to like it and use it. It has the power of my Vitamix, but is more useful for many jobs and is easier to clean. On this system, the blades come out. So the blades and the container can be cleaned easily. On the Vitamix, the blades do not come out. So you have to put a soap solution in it and run it to get the underside of the blades cleaned. The Vitamix will pull food down into the blades as long as you have enough liquid and the food pieces are small. Otherwise, you have to use the plunger to push food into the blades. The Ninja System does a better job a chopping without liquefying the food at the bottom and leaving larger pieces at the top. The Ninja definitely wins at doing a better job of evenly chopping. I really don't find the locking mechanism on the Ninja to be an inconvenience. It's just a matter of placing the cover on and clicking down the handle. I have used my Vitamix in the past to make a Caesar Dressing that uses whole garlic cloves and it does a good job mixing and creaming everything, but the dressing sticks under the blades and it's difficult to clean. Now I use the single serve cups on the Ninja. It does just as good on the dressing, but it's easier to clean. To make the dressing creamy, I just hold the pulse button down for a couple of minutes. The longer you hold it, the smoother the mixture. I haven't tried smoothies in this machine yet, but I imagine the pulse button would just need to be held down for a couple of minutes to make a liquefied drink. I don't think the blades of the larger jars would make a completely smooth drink, but the blade for the smallest jar is similar to the Nutribullet, and with the more powerful motor would likely make a very smooth smoothie. I often use chopped onions, green peppers, and garlic in my recipes, and the Ninja has be great for this. I throw all of them into the medium container, and everything gets chopped with a few pulses. The chopping can be more or less fine depending on the number of pulses. What I like about the chopping this system does is that everything is evenly chopped. I don't get liquefied food at the bottom and larger pieces on the top as is the case with most choppers. At this point in time, I have disposed of all of my other choppers. I haven't tried this machine for dough mixing, but I have my Kitchen Aid mixer for that. I generally make bread batches much too large for this machine. All-in-all, I am very happy with this purchase, and have used it often. With it's versatility and ease in cleaning, it has replaced my Vitamix on my countertop. Although I wouldn't get rid of my Vitamix because of the longer warranty and proven dependability, for now it has been put away in favor of this Ninja system. I have found this Ninja system to be much more useful and versatile.

I bought this model of rebuilt blender about five years ago at an outlet and loved it. The motor is far more powerful than bargain brands. I've been very satisfied with it and used it almost daily. However, over time the coupling between the jar and the base began to wear out. After awhile It began to vibrate, and ultimately I needed to hold it down to prevent it from "walking" off the counter. I researched finding a way to have it repaired, but I had no luck, so I finally replaced it with the same model on Overstock.com (at a better price, by the way). If it could have been repaired, it would probably have lasted for generations! Still, I recommend this little workhouse because it does a wonderful job for years.

I had spent a good amount of time searching for a powerful blender under $***. I've read multiple reviews on every blender I can across and this one had the best reputation so I gave it a try although I wasn't completely sold on it. I received it almost 2 months ago and I've been using it basically everyday since and it's the best money I've spent in a long time. This little monster does everything its supposed to do! I make smoothies to take to work and apples, carrots and broccoli are finely chopped in seconds! It's really easy to disassemble and clean which I also love and it's so pretty and tiny that I just leave it out on the counter all the time. I've gotten several compliments on the little thing. Do yourself a favor and buy it!

Very easy to use and clean. Multiple size pitchers come in handy. Takes up little counter space - can just leave motor head plugged in with pitchers in drawer. Just dumped frozen fruit, yogurt, spinach in - great thick almost frozen yogurt like smoothie. Adding water or milk would easily thin out. Haven't tried on other foods yet. Just lift out blades - run under hot water to rinse - no unscrewing of base needed as in older blenders.
