This is my second Ninja
I purchased this product from the Good guys, at a good price. The product itself has performed as expected. The motor is powerful and deals with most requirements really well.
My most recent purchase was subject to warranty claim because the spout on the blender lid broke.
When I rang Mann and Noble (Ninja agent) how to proceed with claim their representative suggested I could wait till April this year for part or seek help through Good Guys - not helpful really.
This is the second problem I’ve had with lids to the Ninja. I had to replace t...he blender lid for my first machine, which was out of warranty. That’s ok, but my experience with Mann and Noble, was poor in two ways, poor communication and long wait times to receive part. So, if all goes well with machine it is a great asset to any household and I’ve supported this with purchasing two machines, but dealing with warrantee claims and purchasing spare parts is problematic.

This is one insanely powerful blender! Packed with 1500w power, would crushed anything even chunky ice. Couldn’t be more happy with this lil machine - it’s worth paying $200+! Not to mention it’s incredibly versatile having a standard size blender with multiple sharp blades and also the 3 different sizes of Nutri Bullet for 1-2 serves of smoothies! Easy to clean and has 4 suction in the bottom of the unit for super sturdy operation - it has a couple of clutch in the side of the unit for easy un-suctioning the unit. VERY HAPPY with this purchase.

The best blender for your kitchen
On Sunday 16th August 2020 I purchased this so I could make dough and heaps of smoothies also I can blend things as well for when I move into my own unit in September 2020.

It was good... till it went up in smoke!
Bought this blender just over a year ago and probably used it once a fortnight at most. A few weeks ago I noticed it was getting hot and making a screaming noise. Used it 2 more times till it melted on the inside and filled my kitchen with smoke!
What a piece of junk! I won’t be buying one of these again

Perfect blend everytime
I bought the Duo this to replace my previous Ninja IQ. I use it in my food truck and it flawlessly blends frozen fruit and ice within 20 seconds. The first blender lasted for 1000's of shakes. Highly recommend.

Versatile kitchen appliance
This has been a great blender for years. After reading terrible reviews of almost every blender I tried to purchase, I got a Ninja. The auto iq shuts the blender off to protect the motor burning out (which is the problem with other blenders, as far as I can tell).
Powerful blender and hasn’t missed a beat!
Purchased in May 2017 at The Good Guys.
great and practical machine
received the product as a present. never had a similar machine before but I was pleasantly surprised with the results. a bit noisy but great for any kind juicing. i like the fact that i am now starting to look forward to a healthy drink.
The best appliance I have ever purchased. The functions are all amazing, it is made out of sturdy materials and has been well thought out. It replaced other dodgy appliances!

This machine is so powerful I have never had an issue with any of the functions. It’s so smart!! It’s easy to clean, just need to be careful as the blades are so sharp. It comes with a great instruction book which is easy to understand and recipes as well. It has suction cup feet so it does move around on the counter and easy release (for the suction feet) handles at the side of the unit. Very smart idea!!

Can't rely on the parts
Loved this blender for 2 years! Then... the blade started smoking, so the blade needed replacement. Got the replacement, then great again! Then 2 years later another replacement?? So its $300 for the entire blender, then $35 every couple of years just to replace the blade?? The customer service at Mann-Noble (distributor of Ninjas), said it depends on how often it's used etc. Apparently her's has no problem for the last 4-5 years and used everyday, where as mine was not used everyday and yet needed to be replaced twice. I don't even add NUTS to...fruit-veg smoothies, why is it breaking?! The girl must've had terrible customer service training and had no idea how to deal with the situation and sounded like she was 16 and was on her first job. It seems like a factory inconsistency yet I have to pay for the blade. It seems like a design fault to capture consumers because there's no choice except to need to order a replacement blade. They are not built for durability. And Mann-Noble know this and don't care. Disappointed.
I was surprised at what this machine can do, better than my Bullet. The Auto Blend function does its job well, so long as the ingredients are loaded as advised . It makes short work of solids (carrots, ice) and greens. I have both IQ functions and am very happy with it. The machine is noisy as can be expected due to the 1000 watt motor. I found that the machine is easy to rinse clean under the tap. Only dislike I have is the menu booklet that comes with it, its very limited compared to the Nutribullet.

Ninja blender cleaning issues
Big problem is the recessed thread that is in contact with the food. Impossible to clean, unhealthy odour could indicate bacteria build up.
Can not remove the seal to clean it and it is hard to reach being at the bottom of the recess.

After wanting a Vitamix forever, I decided to buy the next best thing. So glad I did. Not only did I save a ton of money but I just love my Ninja. I use it every morning for smoothies for the fam and it makes healthy baby food prep so quick and easy. It's super noisy but I've gotten used to it now.

Great product, very loud. Easy to clean, crushes ice, super easy to use after buying multiple smoothies makers and blenders this does it all and Makes good smoothies. Hand recipe book too!
Purchased in August 2019.
I love using my ninja so easy to use and easy to clean makes my life so much easier and blends things up really well. Very happy with it and would recommend it
Purchased in January 2017 at Big W Retail Stores for $299.00.
I am 100% satisfied with this blender. The power this blender has allows you to make smoothies with a thicker texture. I love that you can click one button and the blender does all the work for you! I found with other blenders they can get quite hot when blending for long periods of time and while the ninja gets warm it doesn't over heat! i would highly recommend this blender/food processor to everyone looking at buying a blender!

This machine just about chews everything into a fine liquid. Haven’t found anything yet it won’t devour. It’s a bit loud, but to be expected with the job it does. Haven’t long bought it, so disappointed to hear it’s been discontinued. Highly recommend this product.
Questions & Answers
I need a machine that can puree food such as meats & vegetables for a diet where only pureed food can be tolerated-please let me know if this machine will do it?
you'll have no problem with vegetables, not sure about meat. Magimix may be better option.
Can I use it for prepare nuts butter ???
Will this machine mix butter into flour to make pastry
