If you need to replace your standard sized blender, or if you’re buying one for the first time, the Ninja Professional blender (BL610) is one of your best options for its price range. It’s one of the best-selling blenders in the world, and there’s a great reason for that.
Everything You Need in a Blender
The Ninja Professional 1000 offers both power and convenience at an affordable price. What more does the average consumer need? Your blender should be powerful enough to give you smooth results, and easy enough to use so that it’s not a hassle to take it out and whip up a smoothie. Unless you’re using your blender for a business like a cafe or restaurant and you can make use of a lot of different features, the Ninja Professional blender has everything you need.
An Extra Large Jar Means More Leftovers
The huge jar that comes with the Ninja Professional 1000 is 72 oz. That’s enough to make anything and plenty of it. You can make a massive smoothie and either put the leftovers in the fridge, or freeze them for later. The jar is quite big enough to prepare an entire soup, broth, or anything else that can be blended before cooking it. The jar is BPA free and dishwasher safe for quick clean up. The blade section comes out of the jar, which makes clean up far easier. It also makes it easier to get all of the blended food out and into your glass or bowl.
A Unique Blade Design with Three Sets of Blades
The Professional 1000 has an innovative blade design. Instead of the traditional set up of having one set of blades located at the bottom of the jar, it has two additional rows of blades attached to a rod protruding up from the base and into the center of the jar. This provides three times the slashing action to quickly and thoroughly blend through the thickest of foods. An even and thorough consistency that takes less time to complete than with a traditional blender is the result.
Safety Sensor on the Lid for Protection from Accidents
The top of the device includes a safety feature that prevents the blades from spinning if the lid is not secure. There is a sensor that detects whether or not the lid is locked into place. This protects you from messes and also helps keep children safe from any possible unfortunate accidents. It’s a unique feature that most others don’t include.
Super Fast 1,000 Watt Motor
The 1,000 watt motor on the Professional 1000 has enough force to dice through ice, frozen fruit, and frozen vegetables at super high speeds. At its highest setting, it can turn a fully loaded jar into a smooth liquid in less than one minute. This blender’s Total Crushing Technology is a feature that is designed to shred ice better, resulting in a smoother consistency. The patented design is one of the reasons why the it has been so successful. If you toss in just ice, the Ninja Professional will turn it into snow in a matter of seconds. This is great for making drinks like margaritas.
Three Blending Speeds to Choose from
The Ninja Professional has three different speeds, low, medium, and high. The ‘low’ speed setting is enough for fruits, vegetables, and non-frozen ingredients. ‘Medium’ can handle ice and frozen ingredients better, but ‘high’ will give you the best results for whipping through thick and frozen ingredients. The low setting comes in handy when you don’t want to make a lot of noise. Making a smoothie is rather loud anyway, especially when the blades are hacking up the ice cubes, but with a 1,000 watt motor on high, the sound will definitely travel into nearby rooms. Using low or medium instead of high can reduce the noise level for when your loved ones are sleeping.
The Ninja Professional also has a ‘pulse’ button. This is useful for getting a thick load of ingredients started slowly, repositioning ingredients, and doing a minor amount of blending to whatever ingredients you may not want to so thoroughly blend. If you want chucky or clumpy results on purpose, you should be careful because the powerful motor on this device can liquefy ingredients very quickly.
The four buttons provide you with everything you need to blend and prepare an unlimited amount of recipes. The only down side to this model is that its jar might be too big for some people. If you have limited fridge space, you might have trouble fitting the Ninja Professional’s enormous 72 oz jar inside. You can always transfer the contents to another container, but sometimes it’s nice to simply pop the lid back on and toss the whole container into the fridge without having to clean the jar yet. If you do have a roomy fridge, then obviously this won’t be a problem, but it would be nice to have a smaller jar included as well for times that you’re blending only a small amount of ingredients. It doesn’t quite feel right whipping up a small, quick marinade in an extra large jar.
