Growing up in a home with two parents that were both chef’s taught me at an early age that kitchen appliances are extremely valuable when it comes to creating delicious dishes. With that said my mom has had a very high end, well known blender for years. She has sworn by it. Made 1000′s of amazing dishes and has pleaded with my that I NEEDED to get one for my own kitchen. So when I received the Ninja Ultima Blender Plus I was so excited to have my mom test out my new blender with me and compare mine to her “well known” and beloved blender.
Let me start with telling you that when it came down to testing out my Ninja Ultima I had no doubts. I am a true Ninja believer! I have known, loved and believed in Ninja products for some time now. (I am in love with my Ninja Cooking System…see my review HERE). The Ninja Ultima Blender combines two blade systems that spin at different speeds causing a silky smooth consistency. We started out with making smoothies with frozen fruit and a little bit of juice (I like my smoothies THICK). We were both amazed how fast, quiet and efficient the Ultima performed. After just about 30 seconds of blending there were no chunks in our smoothies and the texture was fabulous. We are loving our Ninja Ultima Plus for making smoothies, purees, soups, juices and more. There are so much more you can do with this system, rather than your typical blending needs. I have used my Ninja to make Nutella from scratch (from whole hazelnuts), powdered sugar and for roughly chopping veggies for meals.
There are a slew of unique and fabulous features that must be addressed. It comes with 10 different speeds, suction cups to keep your blender secure, a pulsing option for processing foods, a 72 oz container for blending, as well as single serve blending travel cups. I love that the three blade system can be transformed into a single blade system if you would like. It also has the added benefit of a high speed motor with a range of speeds from 3,700 to 24,000 RPM. All parts are BPA-free plastic and can all go in the dishwasher.
I highly highly highly recommend the Ninja Ultima Plus to all! This blender is amazing. It will do everything those upper end blenders are capable of doing at 1/3 the price. Not only that but this blender has several unique features of it’s own that those other blenders do not even have.
