You may not pay much attention to it, but your kitchen blender can be one of the most useful tools you have. Blending, mixing and chopping are now easier, thanks to this efficient home appliance. While you can chop and slice fruits and veggies by hand, sometimes it is more effective to grab your blender and let the motor do the work.
You may think of your blender as the tool you use when you want to make a malt or a smoothie, but they are really wonderful pieces of equipment that can make your life easier in your kitchen. You can crush ice, chop and puree foods or blend together fruits. Smoothies, malts and frozen drinks can be made quickly and easily, all with one kitchen tool, a blender.
The Ninja Blender With A 72 Ounce Mixing Jar
We like the Ninja Professional Blender for a variety of reasons. The motor is powerful, the blades are well designed and work very well, and the mixing jar is a whopping 72 ounces. There is a lot to like with this blender.
Let’s start with the motor. At 1000 watts, it is one of the strongest motors on any home kitchen blender. There are three speeds, plus a pulse setting, meaning that you will be able to create just about any recipe with this unit. 1000 watts is strong enough to handle heavy fruits, like pineapple, and crush ice without over working the motor.
Ninja has created a unique blade system that really works well. 6 blades are set into the grinding attachment and they are set so that food is constantly in motion. This means that even heavy foods will be pulled down onto the blades, then moved up the side of the jar to be sent down again. This constant motion helps to make sure that foods are blended well.
The 72 ounce mixing jar is amazing. It’s huge, meaning that you can make multiple servings at one time, saving a lot of time and effort. The handle is well designed for pouring and the lid has a nice drip proof spout. The jar is glass, with some useful measurement markings on the outside.
Clean Up Is A Snap
Clean up is easy. The mixing jar and the lid can go right into the dishwasher, no need to hand wash either piece. The rest of the unit can be wiped down with a damp cloth. No need to tie up a lot of counter space, the base of this blender measures less than 10″ X 8″.
The Ninja Professional is not the cheapest blender on the market. You can usually find it for less than $90, a price that is higher than many blenders. However, if you use your blender a lot, the price is a good value because you are getting a blender that will last a very long time and will take a pounding. It may cost a bit more, but it is a very good kitchen tool to have on hand.
