The best Ninja blender for power

Specifications
Capacity: 72 ounces
Dimensions: 7.38 x 9.63 x 18 inches
Power: 1400 watts
Preset programs: 3
Reasons to buy
+Smart programs do the work for you +Precision blades +Pulse button  
Reasons to avoid
-Lots of parts take up room on your countertop 

There’s a world of possibilities with this family-sized, powerful, versatile Ninja blender, which has attachments for small and large blends, as well as the capability to turn into one of the best food processors we have tried. This is taken a step further with the Auto-IQ technology built into the Ninja Professional Plus’ base, which is equipped with smart programs to take the work out of blending. These three programs allow you to make smoothies, frozen drinks, and blends from fruit and vegetables that are still nutrient-rich. Though there are quite a few components to this system that might clutter up your kitchen, the personal-sized cups are ideal for breakfast when you need to run out of the door.

Ninja Foodi Hot and Cold Blender

The best Ninja blender for soups

Specifications
Capacity: 64 ounces
Dimensions: 8.8 inches x 7.9 inches x 17.9 inches
Power: 1400 watts
Preset programs: 12
Reasons to buy
+Use to make soups and more +12 programs for versatility +Self-cleaning program 
Reasons to avoid
-Pitcher not dishwasher safe 

If you love making soups packed with vegetables, or sauces to go alongside your favorite home-cooked meals, then the Ninja Foodi Hot and Cold Blender is ideal for those extra functions. It can break down ice and whip up slushies in an instant for sure, but it’s also suitable for hot blends so that you can even make your own fondue if you fancy it. The only downside to this blender is that it’s not quite as tuned-in when it comes to texture as other Ninja models, so your nut butter might not come out at the perfect consistency. However, if you want both hot and cold blend functions, this will be the one for you.

Ninja Foodi Smoothie Bowl Maker and Nutrient Extractor

The best Ninja blender for quality

Specifications
Capacity: 14 and 24 ounces
Dimensions: 6.69 inches x 6.69 inches x 10.79 inches
Power: 1200 watts
Preset programs: 4
Reasons to buy
+ Built-in tamper  + Extremely powerful motor + Perfect for mastering texture 
Reasons to avoid
- Not the best for large quantity mixes 

The Ninja Foodi Smoothie Bowl Maker is an excellent (and inexpensive) investment for anyone who wants their new blender to really be able to power through ingredients. This is due to its extremely powerful motor and built-in tamper tool. A tamper within a blender prevents that annoying part of your smoothie-making process when you have to adjust your mix to get the blades to cut through effectively. Instead, you’ll be able to leave your blender without worrying, especially if you select one of the preset Auto-IQ programs. In one touch, you’ll have a smoothie, frozen drink, smoothie bowl, or spread whenever you want one. This is a huge step up from the Ninja Nutriblender Plus, which struggles a little with consistency. Instead, with this model, if that’s what you need, you’ll be unlocking lots of different textures so that you can whip up all different types of foodstuff. 

Which Ninja blender should I choose for family use?

Ninja Professional Plus Blender with Auto-IQ

The best Ninja blender for the whole family

Specifications
Capacity: 72 ounces
Measurements: 6.75 inches X 9 inches X 17.5 inches
Power: 1400 watts
Preset programs: 3
Reasons to buy
+Large capacity  +Easy clean-up  
Reasons to avoid
-Only one pitcher 

If you need an all-around blending star for your kitchen, then the Ninja Professional Plus has everything you need. It can turn ice to snow for cocktails to serve up in the 72-ounce pitcher, and is easy for clean-up operations, with all attachments being dishwasher-safe. The three Auto-IQ presets on this blender are extremely handy for home use – with smoothies, frozen drinks and ice creams on offer – creating a perfect mix of healthy options and blends to whip up treats. 

With the capacity, presets and ease of use ticking all the boxes when it comes to family use, it’s hard to see how this blender wouldn’t become a staple in any home. If you’re looking for included cups that allow you to take smoothies on the go then you might be a little disappointed, with this blender only having the pourable pitcher.

Ninja Nutriblender Plus

The best Ninja blender for smoothie lovers

Specifications
Capacity: 20 ounces
Dimensions: 4.7 inches X 4.7 inches X 13.8 inches
Power: 900 watts
Preset programs: 0
Reasons to buy
+ Spout Lid cups for drinks on the go + Nutrient extracting technology + Dishwasher safe 
Reasons to avoid
- No Auto IQ programs 

Smoothies can be a nutrient-packed and efficient way to start your day, especially if you find it difficult to factor in time for breakfast. This would be a great purchase if you’re just starting off your journey with blending and want to get a feel for what kind of functions you need. 

There’s no Auto IQ technology here, as this blender is more for the basics of smoothie making, or for frozen drinks if that’s what you fancy. Plus, the Pro Extractor blades within this blender are designed to break down fruit and vegetables while keeping nutrients intact, so you’ll be energized to start your day.  

Which Black Friday Ninja blender deals can we expect in 2021?  

Last year saw discounts on a range of Ninja blenders, from models with personal cups to family-sized pitchers. One such model is the Ninja Nutri Pro, which benefited from a $60 saving that made it almost half of its initial price. It’s likely that almost every model will have some sort of discount, so even if it’s just a few dollars that you save, it’s worth taking the plunge as Black Friday comes around.
