@Coral99:  I have a Ninja blender and I love it! I had a cheap blender before (which didn’t blend a thing haha) so the Ninja has been a dream. I make smoothies with frozen berries and protien powder almost every morning for breakfast so my Ninja gets a lot of use!

The ninja in my humble opinion is the best in its price range! 100-180$. We have one and used ut almost every day for a year before we upgraded to a vitamix which is in a class all its own and ran about $700.  I would keep it and start making smoothies!  Ive had a magic bullet too and it was crap 🙂

I love my Ninja!  I use the single serving size every morning to make protein shakes–it is very convenient b/c you blend the drink right in the cup you drink out of–less dishes!  I’ve been using it for about a year, and I haven’t had any problems with it.

@Coral99:  I have a Ninja. With both the big sized cup and the small one. Which is very practical. I also have a Nutri Bullet, which is made from the same people that make the Magic Bullet. But the Nutri Bullet is super powerful. Definitely worth the difference in $$. We had a Magic Bullet, tried it. Didn’t convince us and we got the Nutri Bullet Which has been great. In our case, my SO and I cook a LOT. Our kitchen is always busy. And we use both appliances. The Ninja I use more for making like purees, smoothies and fresh peanut butter and also almind butter from scratch. I also throw all the ingredients of a cheescake and mix them up in there without too much hassle. However, stuff tends to accumulate on the edges of the blender. So you have to stop here and there and push that to the center where the blades and whipping adapters are. But they are good and no smell of burning blender. Lol. I know what you mean.

The Nutri Bullet is also great for smoothies especially when in the go, some salsas and also they are very good for grinding seeds and nuts. Like Chia seeds and other seeds.

I am happy I have both and they are pretty useful in my kitchen. The next thing is to get a great food processor because honestly, for onions and peppers, both the Ninja and the Nutribullet are too powerful and turn them into a mushy mess.

@Coral99:  Haha not at all! I admit I am lucky in that my SO makes me mine in our little ninja cups (I think someone mentioned it earlier) but I do make them as well 😛 Our smoothies are SUPER basic…scoop of Vega One, almond milk and some frozen berries. Sometimes we throw in flax or spinach as well 🙂

@Coral99:  making a smoothie each morning in the Nutribullet is as easy as it could get girl! throw the stuff in, and put the to go lid/handle and boom. Messy free breakfast and to go in less than 5 minutes! Seriously. That thing saves my life in busy days. It liquifies better than the Magic Bullet so carrots, soinach and even nuts become pretty much liquid. Kind of like in a juicer.

@aislebound:  I just saw that one at Costco. I wish they had this model when I bought mine. It would have kept us from needing the Nutri Bullet. :-/
