Rated 2 out of 5Â by NJEH Not the quality I expected
I purchased this product based on a review in Consumer Reports. The positives: the three pitchers are perfect for different size jobs. The blades assembly is fine for basic smoothies. Love the dishwasher safe feature...top rack. Negatives: Do not like chewing kale when am supposed to be drinking, I.e. Does not chop it well nor does it chop frozen cherries until smooth. My biggest complaint is that the 40 ounce carafe cracked less than 10 months after purchase. Warranty for the carafes is only 90 days and replacement is over $20. Poor quality in carafe construction and cost of replacement is the main reason for the 2 star rating.

I have used this nearly every day for something. It is an awesome food processor. I don't use it as a blender as much, as I have a commercial grade blender and it really does better with kale in smoothies. But the Ninja is wonderful for processing cheese (it makes a killer pimiento cheese) and other stuff. I love the versatility of the different sized containers. Onions used to be a problem but not now. The small ninja takes care of them before I can "tear up". I love my Ninja and wonder how I functioned without it. One of the best features is the easy,easy cleanup. I had another processor which I almost never used because it was a pain, and I finally gave it away. I won't be giving my Ninja away, unless I buy another for a wedding gift!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Tsamb LOVE this product!
I had agonized over what blender/food processor to buy and when I saw that Consumer Reports had listed this gem as a great value buy, I went for it. I haven't been let down. For such a low price, you're getting a ton of quality. I mean, it's not going to blend an iPhone like you see on YouTube, but it gets all the normal things done. The only minor complaint I have is that you have to hold the button down, which can kind of be a pain when blending for several minutes. But all in all, a great buy!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Salsagrl Salsa making
I will never go back to hand chopping again! This appliance minced a stock pot of quartered tomato, pepper, and onion in less than 3/4 of an hour, and I was inexperienced, next time will be faster. This included the time it took to find about 1-2 chunks in each mix which needed to be hand cut as they somehow made it through without being chopped. I used the large container. I don't think think a chunky salsa could be done in this machine. I have used the smaller container for salad dressings, and it purees nicely!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Kathy Absoluely LOVE it!
Absolutely love this machine. I purchased when I enrolled in a 30 days raw class. I use blender and food processor daily. The small bowl has yet to be broken in but I have plans for it! The speed with which it prepares the food is terrific. Also, I love that there's no heavy base to contend with. The motor is light and easy to use. It is so nice to have a food processor and a blender and chopper that use the same motor. Saves so much cupboard space. I only hand wash the parts as I use the machine so frequently.
