I really like this blender/processor. I don't use it yet as much as I intended, but so far I have not been disappointed.Read More
I have used this about 6 times in the last 2 weeks and I love this food processor more every time. It is SO easy to put your ingredients in it..put the lid on it and have it all ready to use in a matter of seconds. The blades are very sharp(as I found out) so you have to be very careful rinsing it off afterwards. Over all I am very happy with what I bought. It says it is refurbished but it looks brand new to me.You wont be sorry if you buy this. Great food processor. The only complaint I have is that it is TOO easy to make malts with so it caused me to gain a couple of pounds.Read More
I have a Vita mix that I love, but I bought this for my trailer. I actually like the way it blends better than my Vita Mix. Also much easier to get the food out No waste. Very happy, and who can beat the cost?Read More
My son and I give a karate yell whenever we use the Ninja! It makes a major chore so much fun! I purchased it specifically to prepare the vegetables for my annual Christmas seafood gumbo. The five onions, bell peppers, two heads of garlic and a lot of celery tend to be a real pain -- with the Ninja, I completed it all in no time and was able to enjoy the cooking process so much more. I only wish it could peel shrimp... oh well. Overstock: thanks for offering refurbished items so that I can get top-of-the-line, high quality products within my budget -- I have not been disappointed yet!Read More
Bought for a gift. My daughter uses it every day and loves it.Read More
I received my Ninja today and one of the pieces arrived defective (the larger top attachment which the Ninja needs to attach to in order to blend). The smaller pieces arrived in working condition, so I tested it out and it was great! It turned ice into snow, it chopped...it did everything the description said it would. I just got off the phone with Overstock and they are sending me out a replacement, immediately...even before receiving the defective one (which I will send out tomorrow morning). The representative e-mailed me a shipping label right away and a brand new order number for my new Ninja. This was my first time having to return something to Overstock, so I was a bit defensive at first when calling in, but after seeing how nice and cordial the associate was and after she said she had already placed a new order for me, I couldn't believe it. I have never experienced such a high level of customer service. I gave this product five stars based on my expectations for my replacement and for my interaction with Overstock customer service. With this kind of customer service, I will continue to be a loyal customer for many years to come. Thanks!Read More
The ninja is amazing. It chops almost anythiing is seconds and chops evenly. It will make snow out of ice cubes easily. Chicken salads, turlkey salads will be ready in seconds. You will need to learn when to hold down the control or when to pulse. With some experience you will get it right. You will not know what you did without it. Warning: The blades are very sharp so wash them carefully, place in drainboard and then put the container over it to dry it all. I do alot of cooking and this appliance is GREATRead More
I really like the two rows of blades. I make smoothies using frozen spinach, kale, berries and fresh apples. I find that do not have to open the blender and stir it to remove my frozen veggies trapped under the blades. Everything is blended into a perfect product. I also make fresh hash browns in a flash. Love it love it! You get so many attachments in three different sizes. It is too much to keep on my counter top. I saved the box to store it all. I can not believe you get so much for so little cash. Consumer reports wrote about this product giving it very high grade better or as good blenders costing hundreds of dollars.Read More
It's a wildly good blender. Easy clean up and will turn anything into mush. I have had several more expensive units and none were as good as this one. Also great as a food processor. Consumer reports rated this unit tied for the best along with a $400 unit and said this one did everything that one did besides make hot soup.Read More
I use this nearly every day. It works better than the reviews and doesn't have the drawbacks of a traditional blender. My old blender was hard to empty but not the Ninja.Read More

For thicker smoothies and drinks that still contain fruit pulp, however, blenders will work well. Read on for tips on using your food blender as a juicer for a variety of fruits.

How to Break in a Stainless Steel Frying Pan
Stainless steel frying pans are frequently used by professional chefs and serious cooks at home. Unlike cast-iron fry pans, stainless steel fry pans do not need to be seasoned before use; and unlike nonstick fry pans, you will need to use oil to avoid food sticking to the surface of your stainless steel fry pan and even then, some food will still stick. While these facts might seem like disadvantages, they're actually the reasons why many cooks prefer to use stainless steel fry pans. High-quality stainless steel cookware may not be the best for cooking things like eggs, but for the most flavorful searing of fish, meat and vegetables, stainless steel fry pans are unrivaled. The following steps will teach you how break in your stainless steel fry pan before each use.
Best Vitamins for Healthy Hair
Getting healthy hair doesn't depend entirely on genes, hair products and styling routines. You can improve the quality of your hair by taking vitamins. With the right hair vitamin routine that includes supplements that are essential to hair nutrition, you can enhance hair growth. You may also experience an improvement in the look and texture of your hair. Thick, shiny locks can be easily within your reach with the perfect hair vitamins for healthy tresses. B vitamins. Most B vitamins are important for hair growth, including B3, B5, B6 and B12. Niacin, also known as B3, is essential for a healthy scalp with good circulation. Some foods rich in vitamin B3 include fish, chicken and turkey. B5, also known as pantothenic acid, may prevent grey hair and is found in egg yolks and whole grains. B6 and B12 are also found in grains and eggs and can prevent hair loss. B-complex vitamins can give you a quick dose of these hair-healthy vitamins, and vitamin-rich sport beverages are also commonly filled with B vitamins. Vitamin A. Vitamin A is an antioxidant that is widely known to improve hair texture and sheen. Vitamin A assists in producing sebum in the scalp, which leads to healthy oils throughout the hair. A vitamins are available in supplement form, and many foods are also rich in A vitamins, including spinach, broccoli, cheese, cabbage, peaches and apricots. Vitamin A also helps improve skin quality and texture, so use vitamin A as an all-over beauty regimen. Vitamin E. Vitamin E is essential to the overall appearance of hair. Vitamin E works wonders for the scalp, leading to more hair growth and oil production, which helps hair appear silky and soft. Vitamin E supplements are widely available, and many foods are also rich in vitamin E, such as soybeans, nuts, beans and dark-green leafy vegetables like spinach, kale and collard greens.

Best Vitamins for Women
Even if you maintain a healthy diet and weight and exercise regularly, you still might not feel as though you are getting the nutrients you need to enjoy and keep up with your lifestyle. Women have specific needs when it comes to vitamins, and those needs can change and increase during adolescence, pregnancy and menopause. Let us help you choose the best vitamins and supplements for your lifestyle. B vitamins. B vitamins are water-soluble, which means they are flushed out daily, so they need to be replenished frequently. B vitamins are abundant in a variety of foods, including meat, potatoes and bananas, but many women, particularly vegetarians, may not find themselves consuming a variety of B vitamin-rich foods. Water-soluble vitamins are also compromised when foods are over-processed or stale. B vitamins affect your immune system, metabolism and cell growth, and they have a big impact on your energy levels. Pregnant women should consume extra B vitamins, particularly vitamin B9, which is also known as folic acid. Find your B vitamins together in a B-complex supplement or in a quality multivitamin. Vitamin C. Vitamin C is also water-soluble, so it is important to get plenty each day. Vitamin C is famous for promoting a healthy immune system. In addition, vitamin C is necessary for absorbing iron into the blood. Because women are more likely to develop iron-deficiency anemia, vitamin C is especially important. Vitamin C supplements are available in a range of formulations, and you can also get plenty from food sources. In addition to oranges, vitamin C is abundant in oysters, broccoli and a wide variety of fruits. Vitamin D. Vitamin D contributes to the overall health of your body's organs, but its main job is to make sure that the calcium you work so hard to consume gets absorbed properly. Women are more likely to develop bone density complications, so calcium and vitamin D are extremely important for women of all ages. You can get your vitamin D easily from the sun, but if your lifestyle doesn't allow for much sun exposure, you may want to consider adding a vitamin D supplement to your routine. Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin, which means it is stored in the body's fat and organs. There is some potential for toxicity when fat-soluble vitamins are over-supplemented. A daily intake of 200 to 400 IU per day is recommended for children and adults, and most vitamin D supplements will provide 400 IU per dose. More than 400 IU per day is not recommended.

Best Vitamins for Energy
Although the simple act of popping a vitamin will not produce an immediate energy boost, some vitamins help the body more efficiently process food, which can create more energy. The B vitamins are known as energy vitamins. If you consume the right amount of B vitamins, you can experience a boost in your energy levels and improve your overall health. You can get your B vitamins by consuming more meat, beans and potatoes. You can also find B vitamin supplements or choose a multivitamin with a comprehensive variety of B vitamins. Health drinks and energy beverages are also likely to include B vitamins. Production of energy. To understand how B vitamins help the body more efficiently produce energy, take a look at how energy is created. The food you eat is broken down into usable components. Carbohydrates are broken down into sugars, and this is where the body gets most of its energy. The carbohydrates are either used right away or stored in the form of glycogen in the liver or muscles. When the body needs energy, glycogen is released and converted into energy. Vitamin B1. Vitamin B1, also known as thiamine, is essential to the break-down of carbohydrates, alcohols and fat. Cells in the body need thiamine to help store the energy from carbohydrates for later use. In addition, thiamine produces an enzyme that processes carbohydrates. The recommended dosage of vitamin B1 for an adult is between 0.8 milligram and 1.1 milligrams per day. Vitamin B2. Vitamin B2, also known as riboflavin, is part of the electron transport chain that converts the carbohydrates into energy. The recommended dosage for an adult is between 1.3 milligrams and 1.7 milligrams per day. Vitamin B3. Vitamin B3, or niacin, helps the body with several functions, including digestion and toxin removal. Niacin also helps convert carbohydrates into energy. In addition, niacin creates starch that can be stored for energy later. The recommended dosage for an adult is between 13 milligrams and 19 milligrams per day. Vitamin B6. Vitamin B6, or pyroxidine, is known as the heart-protecting vitamin, and it also boosts energy. Pyroxidine plays a major role in the breakdown of proteins that get turned into energy. Vitamin B6 also helps regulate mood and behavior, which can help you feel more energetic. The recommended dosage for an adult is between 1.6 milligrams and 2 milligrams per day. Vitamin B12. Vitamin B12, also known as cobolamin, is a famous energy vitamin. B12 is required for the production of red blood cells, and it is also necessary for normal cell metabolism. The recommended dosage for adults is 2 micrograms per day. Pregnant women, however, should get 3 micrograms of vitamin B12 per day.

Best Vitamins for Fighting Fatigue
If you're feeling fatigued, your diet may be to blame. A lack of the proper vitamins can leave you tired, even after a good night's sleep. If you find yourself struggling to keep your energy up throughout the day, then you might consider adding vitamins and supplements to your daily routine. Adding vitamins and supplements to your diet can help you fight fatigue and feel more energized. Vitamin A. Vitamin A is an anti-stress vitamin. If your body can't deal with stress properly, you tire quickly. Vitamin A maintains the health of skin, plus the mucous membranes lining your digestive tract, bladder, mouth and lungs. Vitamin A also aids in the production of T cells, which improve your immune system. When your immune system is healthy, you feel more energized. In addition to supplements, you can get more vitamin A by consuming more eggs, spinach and mangos. Vitamin B. Vitamin B is best when taken in the form of a B complex, which includes folic acid, B6 and B12. Vitamin B helps regulate hormones and metabolism. Getting enough vitamin B helps your body efficiently process food and turn it into energy. Vitamin B can also improve your mood. Vitamin B is especially helpful in treating pre-menstrual fatigue and mood swings. B-complex vitamins and fish oil capsules can help your body get enough vitamin B. You can also find high levels of vitamin B in meat, lentils and potatoes. Beer is also a surprising source of vitamin B, though alcohol can limit the body's absorption of vitamins, so consume alcohol in moderation. Vitamin C. Vitamin C is crucial for maintaining your immune system and fighting viruses. Infections, even those unapparent to you, can cause fatigue as your body uses energy to fight them. Vitamin C is also helpful for iron absorption. Because iron deficiency, or "anemia", can result in fatigue, vitamin C is an important part of an energy-packed diet. Fruits and fruit juices are high in vitamin C, as are a wide range of vegetables. Vitamin C supplements are also a great way to get enough vitamin C. Vitamin E. Vitamin E is an important antioxidant, which means that it limits cell damage throughout the entire body. Vitamin E is also necessary for a healthy immune system. Supplements and multivitamins containing vitamin E can boost energy, and vitamin E can also be found in nuts, wheat germ, fruits and vegetables. NADH. NADH is a coenzyme. NADH aids in breaking down food and converting it into energy. If you're lacking NADH, fatigue is often a symptom. In addition to supplements, NADH can be found in fish, poultry and meat. Gingko Biloba. Gingko biloba is an extract from ginkgo leaves. Ginkgo biloba is often used to increase energy levels because it has been shown to increase blood flow in the body. Ginkgo biloba is also an antioxidant. You can find ginkgo biloba supplements or purchase teas and other drinks and specialty foods that are infused with the plant.

FAQs about Blenders
One essential appliance for every kitchen is the blender. Blenders are handy accessories for kitchen fanatics and novices alike. They can help you create everything from milkshakes to soups; they're one of the handiest kitchen appliances. This article should help you find answers to some of the most frequently asked questions about blenders.
Best Vitamins to Take Daily
It's difficult to eat well enough in our fast-paced world to get the full daily recommended amount of nutritional support from food. Taking vitamins is a simple way to ensure that you are maintaining your health properly. Supplying your body with the right amount of vitamins will help boost your immune system, reduce the amount of harmful free radicals in your body, increase your energy levels and help you feel your best. You can get the nutrition vitamins that you need by adding a multivitamin to your routine. When shopping for a multivitamin, look for these vitamins. Vitamin C. Vitamin C is one of the best nutrition vitamins to take daily. Vitamin C is responsible for assisting the body in absorbing iron to the blood. It is also essential for the development and growth of healthy cells, and it can do wonders for your immune system. Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin, so it needs to be replenished regularly. The recommended dose of vitamin C each day is 90 milligrams for men and 75 milligrams for women. B vitamins. When comparing multivitamins, check for a comprehensive set of B vitamins. These water-soluble vitamins are essential for blood health, a strong immune system, a robust metabolism, healthy skin, proper cell development and nervous system function. If you do not receive enough of the B-complex vitamins, particularly vitamin B12, you can develop anemia and have an increased risk for nerve damage. B vitamins also go by a variety of other names, including thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, pantothenic acid, pyridoxine, biotin, folic acid and cobalamin. Each B vitamin has a different daily requirement, so check multivitamin labels carefully. Vitamin D. Vitamin D is essential for the healthy development and maintenance of bone and skin. Vitamin D helps the body absorb calcium, which prevents bone density loss and fractures. Vitamin D can be absorbed from sunlight with approximately 15 minutes of sun exposure each day. If 15 minutes of sun exposure doesn't fit into your daily routine, consider purchasing a multivitamin with vitamin D. The daily recommended intake of vitamin D is 200 to 400 IU for both men and women. Avoid taking more than 400 IU per day, as vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin and has the potential for overdose. Vitamin A. Vitamin A is essential for healthy eyes, a robust immune system, reproductive health, and good skin and bones. Vitamin A is also an antioxidant, which means it helps promote healthy cell function and growth, so it affects the entire body. Adults should get approximately 3500 IU per day, with at least 20 percent from beta-carotene. Vitamin E. Vitamin E is an antioxidant. Its main role is to guard cell membranes from free radicals and oxidation, which can damage organs and tissue. Vitamin E is also currently being studied extensively to determine its role in preventing different types of cancer and other serious health problems. Adults should get approximately 35 IU of vitamin E per day.

Best Vitamins for Clear Skin
If you have struggled with acne and blemishes, then you may have tried a variety of things with hopes of getting clear skin. While creams and ointments have their benefits, sometimes you have to start from the inside to get the beauty results you desire. There are many vitamins and supplements that help to promote clear skin and many ways to implement them into your skin care routine. Vitamin A. Vitamin A is vital to healthy, clear skin. By regulating the immune system, vitamin A helps the body fight infections. It also encourages the production of white blood cells, which are needed to destroy bacteria that causes acne. Vitamin A also plays a part in cell division, cell reproduction and bone growth. Vitamin A can easily be integrated into your diet. Foods rich in vitamin A include carrots, broccoli, sweet potatoes and eggs. Vitamin A is also available in pill and cream forms. B Vitamins. B vitamins promote hydration and reduce inflammation. B vitamins are commonly used to increase blood circulation and encourage tissue repair, so they not only help to clear the skin, but they can also heal visible signs of previous break-outs and reduce the redness and inflammation of current blemishes. Get your B vitamins by consuming more potatoes, bananas, beans and tuna or purchase a B-complex vitamin supplement. Vitamin C. Vitamin C is well known and vital for good health. Vitamin C is an antioxidant, which means it protects skin cells. This healthful vitamin helps fight infections and heal wounds, and it is also responsible for keeping ligaments, blood vessels and tissue healthy. Vitamin C is effective in pill and cream forms. Skin creams with vitamin C can increase collagen production and decrease the effects of sun exposure. Vitamin C in skin care products often appears in ingredients as L-ascorbic acid. Get more vitamin C in your diet with fruits and vegetables of all kinds. Vitamin E. Vitamin E works well alongside other vitamins in skin care products and is often paired with vitamin C. Vitamin E is a great oil-free hydration solution for acne-prone skin because it allows you to repair acne damage without encouraging more break-outs. Vitamin E is found in eggs and milk and can also be purchased in pill form. Fish oil. Fish oil is a fantastic supplement that is full of omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3 fatty acids help calm and prevent inflammation, which can reduce the size and redness of blemishes. Fish oil also helps to calm skin irritation which can occur when acne-fighting skin treatments are used. Fish oil supplements are available in pill form, and you can also get your omega-3 fatty acids by eating a diet rich in dark-green leafy vegetables, eggs, lean meats and whole grains. Flaxseeds are also rich in omega-3 fatty acids and can be purchased whole, ground and in oil form.
