2nd unit broke just after 12 months - not designed to last
This is now the 2nd unit that has had the motor seize up on me just after 12 months. These appliances are not built to last and be prepared to throw out after 12 months.
Both units failed in the same way with engine seizing and smoke coming out of machine.
Also found this unit difficult to use as you have to stand and press it down and cant just leave to blend. Don’t recommend.
Purchased in November 2019 for $99.00.
4 stars because of noise otherwise perfect!!
Great machine to blend smoothies, juices etc.
However- it's VERY noisy!! Also, make sure you clean the blending blades and containers immediately as cleaning can get a bit difficult with the intricate threads.
Otherwise, its a great little blender-very powerful!
Purchased in August 2020 at The Good Guys.
We have a magic bullet which stopped working so we thought we would upgrade. Unfortunately this blender just doesn’t work. It’s very powerful and loud, but you constantly have to shake it to get it blending the whole contents which takes a long time. It seems to be something in the way the blades sit as it blends the lower half of anything you put in Very well but not the upper portion. I guess it might be ok for items with more liquid in but that’s not any good if you want to blend thicker. Just disappointing I’m afraid and we hope to be able to return.

I hate it
it's very loud, like embarrassingly loud and my ears always ring afterwards.
despite blending for a fairly long time (I've used several other blenders in the past, most of them cheaper than this one so I know how long blending should take) it still ends up with lumps.
I even take the cup out, shake it, blend more, keep blending. no matter what I get lumps. I'm only blending banana and frozen banana with milk and protein powder and it can't do a good job.
It's a piece of junk, very large as well. Tried blending frozen mango pieces with milk just now, same result as above. it just doesn't blend well, I think it must be related to the very wide opening. other blenders I've used and seen don't have such a wide cup.
Not so good.
Had to change my review of this product.
The design is terrible. The blades are great it does a good job however you can’t clean under the gasket where food and liquids get trapped. After a few days I was noticing a distinct very foul smell from the inside area. You can’t clean that in any way. You can’t remove the gasket either. I have contacted the company only for them to tell me there is no way of removing the gasket and I would need to buy a new extractor blade assembly. Poor design, lucky for me I was able to get a refund and have now purchased a much better blender with a better design.
Shame it had so much promise to begin with.

Simple is best.
Had used the narrow version for quite a while but wanted a bit more versatility.
This is the perfect upgrade. It is a simple plug n play item. No buttons, speeds or timers. Just load it up with your ingredients, lock it into place and push down. It is powerful and does a very thorough job of blitzing everything to tiny fragments.

So disappointed with this Ninja Pro 900w and is little wonder it’s been discontinued - it’s absolute RUBBISH. I bought one to replace my old ninja approx 4 months ago. That one got progressively harder and harder to use - requiring you to push down with super human strength to get the motor to work until eventually it just stopped working altogether. Thinking I’d gotten a bad one I returned it to Big W about a week ago and replaced with another of the same model. Well, this one has officially lasted just over a week and done the exact same thin...g - completely refused to operate this morning. I’m beyond angry as it’s not super convenient to get to Big W and beyond me how crap like this can pass quality control. And yes, I did everything right - my original Ninja was a workhorse - which I why I decided to upgrade to this model. DO NOT BUY THIS APPLIANCE - it’s useless - I would have given it no stars if I could.

Power Power power
I have been loyal to the nutribullet for many years, but after reading many reviews about it failing after a year, I also experienced this myself. I investigated this ninja and must say it is noticeably different. More power for sure and I have confidence it will last much longer.

Better than the competitor
Ive purchased two of the Nutri bullets previously and they both burned out within 12 months. Ive read that the ninja will last much longer and so far so good! Seems more powerful.

Not as good as 700 watt version
I am disappointed with this blender. My old 700 watt was far easier to use. This one is harder to push down onto motor. Dont think I would recommend to others.
Purchased in September 2019 for $99.00.
I went from a cheap $20 blender to one of these. Bought it on sale $79. So far I haven’t had any issues. Does the job. No lumps. Great blender. Only downside is that it’s noisy but that’s to be expected from most of these high power blenders.

Such a good blender. Used DAILY for icy smoothies for the last 3 years.
One time about a year ago it made a really funny noise when hubby turned it on. Turns out my husband left a spoon in there. The blender still worked WITH A SPOON IN THERE. It still works like new.

Great little gadget, gets through most food. It can get a bit clogged due to the small bowl.
Doesn't take up a lot of room.
I've tried the Magic Bullet, small and larger versions. I prefer the Nutri Ninja.
Does breadcrumbs, cream and smoothies well. Sometimes is gets clogged though.
Obsessed! Love it sooooo much!
I have had my nutri ninja for 4 years! I love it so much, I made smoothies in it, nice-cream, blend fresh curry pastes, homemade pasta sauces, make crepe batter and my absolute favourite is making cocktails in it! I bought it on sale at Woolies for $89 and it's been my most used kitchen appliance by a long shot.
The only golden rule is to never ever blend anything hot in it, not even warm. Everything must be cold or room temp.
I don't get all the comments about it being loud? It's a blender? this literally does not bother me one bit.
Okay but not that durable
Purchased fro the Good Guys. Blends smoothies easily albeit very noisily! Purchased about three months ago. Recently, dropped the screw in cover which incorporates the blade onto a timber floor. The plastic lid broke. Replacement is $54.95. The whole unit including motor and attachment cost me $99! Not a very durable product as it only fell a distance of one metre onto timber floor.
Great little machine
I use this machine several times a day and it has been going strong for many months. It blends anything with great force and i never had any problem with the unit itself. The seals on the cups however have started to deteriorate after lots of use, but these can be replaced easily.
88 dBA - too loud!!
I can't recommend this product. Well one can't start one up in a store now can they? Purchased through JB Hi-Fi. The unit is extremely loud. I recorded the sound level 1 m from the noise source and it measured 88 dBA, which is similar to a lawn mower. We now wear industrial ear-muffs each morning when making smoothies. So it's just the motor noise, not the contents being processed that creates the noise - hence I can't give it more stars. Good alarm clock for the kids!
