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.
We've had it about a month now, I'm happy with the quality & how thick the plastic pitchers & drink cups are, no fear of them breaking easily. I also read that the plastic is BPA free, that's important to me. It takes getting used to the power of 2HP! The machine is fantastic. We use it every day for great protein smoothies & drinks. Be aware a few of the recipes in the booklet are lacking info, I made the carrot cookies & realized some ingred's were left out. If the cookbook they offer for sale is anything like that, I think I'll pass on that.
I LOVE this machine. It is on the counter and I use it at least once a day. The single serve "bullet" accessory is great for making sauces and finely grinding nuts for recipes that you want very smooth....very powerful. Easy to clean. Great having options for the blender and the processor. I have not made actual smoothies yet as I juice with a different machine but I do know when I am ready for smoothies this is the machine that will do it.
Would be lovely if it was a quieter machine but it works so well and the price was right that it doesn't matter.
This is a wonderful addition to my kitchen. The price was very good. I have used this machine several times and am so impressed with what a strong motor it has and what a great job it does. Highly recommend this Ninja.
This is just perfect. I love this Ninja and use it daily. I got rid of my old blender, and hand held mixer, juicer, and food processor for this one new Ninja that does everything. It's wonderful. I just love it.
I purchased this unit in January 2014, and since then I have used it mainly for smoothies.
Yesterday I was making cupcake batter in the dough bowl, when I suddenly noticed thick smoke coming out of the unit accompanied by loud motor noise. The unit had been running for less than a minute at that point. I unplugged it immediately and tried to pick it up to take outside, but it was way too hot to handle, do I had to open the window and wait for the unit to cool down first.
Given how hot it felt to the touch, it could have easily caught on fire. I contacted customer service earlier today to report the incident and to inquire about my options. The lady I chstted with told me that there was NO warranty on the product, and that it had to be purchased separately. Two hundred dollars for a product without ANY warranty? That's not acceptable at all. Had I purchased the same product for the same price from the Rollback retailer, then I would have gotten a warranty on it. Not acceptable.
Long story short, check your warranty or even better purchase from a local store. The Ninja is in the trash along with the money I paid, and I'm lucky that it didn't catch on fire. I will be reporting the incident to saferproducts.gov to protect other consumers.
Disappointing experience with the O. Never again.
