Highlights Ninja Professional Blender 1000 Watts

Pitcher size

The capacity of the blender is a vital factor we cannot ignore when thinking of using it for either individuals or groups of people. If you are living alone, you should go for a medium-pitcher-size blender. On the other hand, your big family may need a larger blender so that you will not have to blend in several rounds to serve the entire crew.

Highlights Ninja Professional Blender 1000 Watts

The Ninja Professional blender 1000 comes with a 72-ounce BPA-free jar that enables you to make a large drink batch enough for your entire family at a time.

Design

Even though this Ninja blender is mostly plastic, it doesn’t feel cheap or weak at all. Instead, it is very secure. It locks onto the base with a satisfying click, which you can find the same as locking the lid.

Unless you have heard both clicks, the blender won’t start. The base is extremely sturdy which does not shift while blending. Also, the lid locks into place and does not move while blending or pouring, so there is no need to hold the top of the blender while running it. 

The 6 blades are extremely sharp, which are angled to create a vortex that instantly turns any fruits and vegetables inside into viscous liquid. This Ninja Pro blender also provides a flip-top spew out that helps you pour the drink more simply.

In general, the whole design is sleek and clear enough to determine the capacity of the ingredients to set inside the jar. 

Performance & Versatility

The highly-robust 1000 Watt motor combined with the unique blade design allows the unit to squash ice into snow or to blast through veggies in seconds, particularly when making smoothies.

If you love making your own drinks, like smoothies, shakes, purees, or frozen treats, from all kinds of ingredients, even hard ones, it seems that the heavy-duty blender – the Ninja Professional Blender 1000 certainly suits you most.

Performance & Versatility Ninja Professional Blender 1000 Watts

From refreshing smoothies to iced drinks or sauces and dips, the Ninja Professional Blender 1000 is a robust tool that works well with finesse.

So, what can Ninja Professional Blender 1000 actually process?

Not as much as the Vitamix 750 or the Oster Versa 1400, however, it still can meet most of both basic and special needs, as follows:

– Frozen drinks/treats

No doubt that the device can crush ice for resort-style frozen drinks like margaritas, daiquiris, etc. without any fuss. You can always include ice without worrying about putting your blender at risk because it can transform ice cubes into even, fine crystals, or even liquid mix at ease.

It’s ideal to cool off the heating days with frozen favorites like ice cream, snow cones, and more with this little partner in the kitchen!

– Smoothies

Ninja Professional Blender 1000 is truly one of the best blenders to effortlessly deliver great smoothies in no time. Even if you make a smoothie that includes a variety of ingredients, such as ginger, dairy, fresh fruit, nuts, ice, and root veggies, it still offers you a drink that is easy to melt in your mouth.

– Sauces, Dips, Sides

If you want fancy restaurant-style sauces and purees to salsas and dressings, no worries, this Ninja blender got you.

Not only that, but Ninja Professional also works as a blender food processor. For example, it can help you chop onions, bell peppers, or other vegetables evenly.

Ease of use and cleaning

There are only 3 manual controls for speed, a Pulse function and a Stop button neatly placed on the base, which users can figure out and use effortlessly.

The bottom of the blender is fitted with suction cups, enabling the blender to be more stable during operation. Also, as mentioned above, the spout with a lid that locks open makes it easy to pour the drinks.

How about cleaning?

Thanks to the solid design, every part, such as blades, container, and cups, of this appliance is easy to assemble and clean. Or, in the worst case, you can still replace these parts, instead of buying a totally new blender.

I have checked carefully and the Ninja Professional’s blade assembly does not appear to be capable of flight out while we are cleaning. Nonetheless, to make sure, you should lift it out cautiously. And, if you are going to use the blender again, just rinse the blades. In contrast, if you want the blades completely clean, you can use the dishwasher.

Price

Although price does not always play the most important role to decide something’s quality, it can lead you to the appropriate product. If you have no idea about what factors to consider when choosing a good blender, try to compare the cost of many units. I’m sure you will get a clue! In another word, you can use price as the main guide to choosing the blender you can afford in this case.

With a price tag around under $100, this blender is well-worth your money when doing basic blending for either individuals or for groups. It gets the job done quickly, and especially crushes ice like magic. Cleanup is also easy – simply rinse by hands or throw the pitcher in the dishwasher. Moreover, because of the excellent top-lock feature and no openings on the pitcher base, little to no residue gets on the base.

If you don’t need too much versatility in a blender, then the Ninja Professional Blender 1000 is a good bargain for you.

Other Notes

– Every blender is loud as they are powerful, and the Ninja Professional Blender 1000 is no exception. But luckily, it won’t take you hours to run the device to get the desired results. 

– Parts of this Ninja blender are told to be dishwasher safe, however, according to the manual, you should put the blade and lid in the top rack of the dishwashing machine.

– It’s better to leave the lid on while pouring since sometimes the blade may come out if the lid is off. However, this is convenient when it comes to cleaning.

– For better cleaning: Put warm water and some drops of soap in ¾ the jar. Then, start to blend for 20-30 seconds. After that, rinse with clean water and dry.

What I like:

✅ Crushes ice and frozen fruit like a powerhouse without any chunk left.

✅ Brilliant blade design helps users easily insert or remove with one fluid movement.

✅ Blade removal makes pouring, scraping, and cleaning easy. However, be careful because it’s sharp.

✅ The secured top system prevents splashes and leaks.

✅ Flip spout allows adding more items while blending.

✅ The BPA-free jar is dishwasher safe.

✅ Pulse function or run blender hands-free.

✅ The container is big enough for lots of portions.

What I don’t like:

❌ Dry items possibly jump and stick to the sides if not full, so you need to stop and stir manually.

❌ The cord is too short, making it difficult to accommodate the outlet.

❌ Quite noisy. (Luckily, it’s not really an annoying type.)

❌ The cost may be a bit high for some people.

Verdict

From this Ninja Professional Blender 1000 review, it’s obvious to see that this tool is quite useful with easy-to-understand functions, even by new users. The base is very sturdy which will ensure neither moving nor shift during operation.

What to note here is its incredible processing power, strong and sharp blades, and the big container to process a batch enough for the whole family at once. Actually, I rarely need to process soups, smoothies, milkshakes, or no matter what it is, for more than 40 seconds with this machine. Ice simply gets eaten up and there are no large chunks as I’ve found with other brands and models.

 

Apart from a few defects, like the noise, this special kitchen appliance is still one of the greatest additions to your kitchen worth every single penny.
