A Closer Look at What this Blender Can Do
The Ninja Chef High-Speed blender is not only a versatile kitchen tool but also packs an impressive punch. The 1500-watt motor provides the necessary power to make quick work of even the most robust ingredients. When combined with the next-generation stainless steel blades, bulky items are blended with ease, producing a quality end result.
Cyclonic Action Ensures an Even Consistency
The blades are designed to pulverize foods by utilizing cyclonic action, pushing already-blended foods out and away and pulling solid foods down. This impressive action ensures even and thorough blending, grinding, and pureeing of all ingredients. Boasting an impressive ten manual speeds, with total speed control for personal customizability, the powerful motor is capable of reaching up to 18,000 RPM. These high speeds ensure the desired level of texture is achieved, whether making nut butters or milling grains for flour.
Large Size for Large Batches
Though sleekly designed and able to fit seamlessly into any kitchen counter space and decor, the Ninja Chef High-Speed blender has an impressive 72-ounce capacity, with a 64-ounce liquid maximum. The large blending vessel allows any home cook to create larger batches and several servings of both hot and cold foods for convenience.
Handy Recipe Booklet Included
For inspiration in creating a delicious new recipe, look no further than the Recipe Guide, included with every unit. With 50 different ideas to try and customize, the home chef is able to take their enthusiasm for food and turn it into a restaurant-quality end result.
Can Be Cleaned with the Push of a Button
Suitable for frequent use, this blender has an impressive Clean function. By adding hot water and a little dish soap to a used vessel, the clean cycle prevents ingredients and food from becoming caked on, both to the vessel itself and the blades. For particularly stubborn foods, home chefs can rest assured that clean up will be a breeze, as all attachments are not only dishwasher-safe but also BPA-free for peace of mind.
The LED-lit controls and simple user interface make choosing the correct program easy and hassle-free. Each blender includes a tamper, a tool used for incorporating ingredients that may not be within immediate reach of the blades. The tamper allows for safe movement of ingredients down towards the blades while the blender is in use – for example, while making ice creams, low-moisture purees such as hummus, or when making a recipe in a large batch. Use of the tamper ensures even blending and a better final product.
Some Minor Cons
This particular blender does have a few less-positive aspects to it. While the vessels are all BPA-free and dishwasher safe, none of them are suitable for use in a microwave, which could prove to be an inconvenience for easy reheating. For coffee-lovers, this particular blender is also not recommended for grinding coffee beans, while other similar blenders do offer this function.
While additional accessories are available for purchase from the Ninja online store, it is important to note that this model only comes with a 72-ounce pitcher. You can buy single-serve cups intended for smoothies and individual portions, but these single-serve cups cannot be used while blending hot liquids. This is due to the risk of high pressure overload and spillage, which could result in burns for the user.
The 72-ounce pitcher is, unfortunately, lacking in a pouring spout, meaning that the owner of this unit would have to use a spoon or scoop to decant the blended liquid or puree. Some users have also reported that this particular model is quite loud when the blending action is on. For home cooks who have had Ninja blenders in the past, it is important to note that the blades from older models are not compatible with this model, meaning that new blades and accessories will need to be purchased even if you have an older one already.
