Blenders Buying Guide
Our buying guide will explain which type of blender would suit you most, how much you can expect to pay for one, and which features are worth looking out for.
Does its job but becomes faulty over time
Had it since 2016 and works well for blending smoothies, drinks, making soups and juices. Loved using it at the start but it started leaking after using it for a while now. Liquids would now leak out of the blending cup when the machine turns on to blend. Also, it does not handle solids well at all, there has to be water or a liquid up to half the container in order to blend, otherwise the machine would be overworked and potentially break down.

Makes (Made) a good smoothie but Extractor Blade Siezed!
Another over priced appliance that under delivers in longevity and overall quality. When deciding at the shops I could physically see and feel the Ninja had the most robust and highest quality blades and construction, it was obvious! Upon purchasing and using for the first time I was honestly super impressed with how well this blended, it really made a properly blended smoothie ready to drink! Fast forward not that long into ownership (Less than 1 Year) with occasional use for 1 Person and I noticed it had become fairly noisy, a few weeks later...the extractor blade seized. I rang Ninja and they said that part wasn't covered under warranty, they also had no Genuine blades to purchase suitable for my machine. I had no choice but to buy online, between ebay, amazon and every other seller (There was hundreds for sale everywhere which immediately made me realise this was a common problem) I ended up purchasing what was supposed to be an original part and receiving what appeared to be a high quality, yet non-genuine item. Used once and it was so noisy and produced a lot of heat due to the added friction, The Ninja has been in the cupboard since. It is honestly ridiculous how many companies make products that break so soon after purchasing. $200 for a smoothie blender isn't cheap. This could have easily been a 5 Star Review but things need to last longer than 1 year!
Purchased in January 2018.
Great blender but 2yrs later....
Was sceptical it would blend as smooth as it claimed to be but gotta say, it does blend really well. Disappointed though after barely 2yrs use the extractor blade component has seized! After just 2yrs!?! Wow! Everything is just not made to last anymore!
Great blender, it has an enormous power,yes. But it doesn't have an obstacle because whatever you'll blend for one minute will become hot, yes. So if you're making a milkshake, smoothies etc. You'll also new and ice cube. Another thing about this 'power beast': it is way too loud!!!
Looking for powerful blender? This is the one you need
Purchased in January 2017 for $120.00.
Perfect gadget for healthy drinks!
Bought this one a year ago as a christmas present for myself and don't want to miss it. Great for quick healthy shakes. It crushes nuts and ice and having the 3 portable containers means you can take your smoothy with you straight away. You can even make whipped cream with it. Easy to clean and it is not too big to be stored away when not in use.
Purchased in December 2018.
I have had the Nutri Ninja IQ for over 12 months and have found that it suits our needs perfectly.
Great for smoothies etc. Handles ice cream, ice, fruits and veggies well.
No need for wasted fruit with this blender.
Cleaning cups etc easy however, not so easy when there is any overflow near the cog.
My only criticism would be that it is VERY loud however, it does the job so quickly it's not a big deal.
Does Work -very Hard To Click It In.second Bought As The First One Was Trouble
Not at all blending. This is the third one I bought as the previous two was not working.
Blends ok. I liked it initially that's why kept buying the same item. Bu
Purchased in May 2018 at tugerranong for $250.00.
This unit's blending function is superb. Works a treat with friut and vegetables, the only drawback is the noise level which can "raise the dead": great if you need the kids to get up and out of bed - just to complain.
Haven't used the "sip & seal lids" so cannot comment.
Purchased in March 2019 for $138.00.
Exactly what I needed
I am very satisfied w/this blender. I can put raw vegetables/fruit and get a great consistency. I use it 2/3xs a day. I'm no longer losing all of the "good stuff" when I juice. Instead I just put it in the blender or save all the pulp from my juicer and use it for my smoothies. I give it a 4* just because it's loud (I know I disturb my neighbours in the morning)..You won't be disappointed when you bring this home

Powerful and great for smoothies
Love this blender, mostly used for protein shakes, smoothies and açaí bowls and produces smooth and creamy texture without lumps.
Easy to use and powerful for things like frozen fruit and nuts.
Is loud just like any powerful blender but is super quick to blend. Looks good and durable.
use it for anything and it gets the job done
The Nutri Ninja is great for the on the go breakfast or an afternoon snack everything works you can make smoothies thick shakes, and so much more throw some froze mango in and milk in and hey presto you have a thick mango smoothie for summer.mix different juices or fruit bring out your creative side with The Nutri Ninja.
Great blender. Chops, blends anything you throw at it. Easy to clean parts, just throw them all in the dishwasher, love the different size juice containers too with their portable 'on the go' drinking lids. Only gripe is the noise, jee whiz is it noisy, are they all like this? I'm sure it breaks some sort of Health and Safety regulations, my 3 y/o has to cover ears! Other than this great design and use.
Awesome quality machine and super easy to clean
We loved our nutri Ninja. It is quite loud as reviewed by others but it's only for a short duration. Been using it for a while now and never fail to produce smooth consistency smoothies or juices and even to blend sauces for cooking. Super easy to clean and the blades are of great quality!
Loud, but effective!
Purchased yesterday and enjoying it! I think you definitely expect a blender to make a bit of noise but this will take some getting used to on early mornings.
The design is great and easy to clean. The cups lock in tightly with the blade attachment. Very easy to assemble and disassemble. I really like the auto functions that pulse on and off on its own. Beats standing there turning it off and on.

Questions & Answers
My Ninja Auto-iQ is showing 2 dashes on the LED display instead of a zero and the blades do not turn. Any advice would be much appreciated
Where is the switch on the unit?
When the unit is plugged in to the electrical outlet and the power is switched on 2 horizontal bars appear on the LCD screen. Facing the unit switches, the top left button reads stop/start, the top right button reads blend and runs for a set time. The bottom left reads “pulse” and you have the option to blend to your specifications. The bottom right button reads blend and also runs for a set time - exactly one minute. There is no need to hit the start/ stop button to start but this button is useful if you notice that what your blending has gone to far you you can stop the process.
Hope this helps, Cheers, Alan
