The 4 Best Ninja Blenders of 2022 Reviews

Updated
Best Ninja Blenders

Ninja is a manufacturer that makes home appliances like blenders and ovens. Generally, their blenders have impressive build quality, and although they're mostly plastic, they feel solid and durable. Most of their jars, lids, and blade assemblies can go right into the dishwasher for an easy clean. Some of their blenders include a couple of unique attachments and accessories, like a food processor or a micro-juicer. However, most can't hot blend, which is disappointing if you want to puree soup.

Best Ninja Blenders


  1. Best Multi-Purpose Ninja Blender

    The Ninja Mega Kitchen System BL770 is the best multi-purpose Ninja blender that we've tested. This sturdy full-size blender comes with a large, 72-ounce main jar, a 64-ounce food processor bowl, and two 16-ounce personal jars with matching to-go lids. It delivers a versatile performance since you can use it to make silky smoothies, snow-like crushed ice, and smooth, spreadable almond butter. There are also a few preset modes, including 'Ice Crush' and 'Single Serve', a dedicated mode for the smaller jars. The jars, lids, and blades are all dishwasher-safe, and the removable blade assembly helps make it easy to clean by hand.

    Unfortunately, you can't use it for hot blending, so it's not ideal if you want to use your blender to process ingredients like roasted vegetables for soup. It also doesn't offer a very wide range of speed settings. Otherwise, it's a very sturdy blender with quite a few helpful accessories. It's a great choice if you want a blender that does a bit of almost anything, and it's also one of the best Ninja blenders for smoothies that we've tested.

  2. Best Ninja Blender For Smoothies

    If you want a full-size blender that excels at making smoothies, the Ninja Βlender Duo with Auto-iQ L642 is the best option from Ninja that we've tested. This full-size blender performs similarly to the Ninja Mega Kitchen System BL770, but it comes with three personal jars for making single-serve smoothies with matching resealable lids. The blender detects if you're using one of the personal jars or the 72-ounce main jar, affecting what presets are available. There are two presets for making smoothies in the personal jars, including Ultra-Βllend', which is for processing hard or fibrous ingredients like seeds or raw greens. You can use it to make very well-blended, silky smoothies in the 32-ounce or 18-ounce jar.

    Ηowever, the results aren't as good if you use the main pitcher to make a smoothie since it struggles to completely liquefy the kale. It does a fantastic job of making snow-like crushed ice with the 'Frozen Drinks Desserts' program, which is nice if you like ice in your smoothies or making frozen drinks like slushies. Overall, it's a great option if you're looking for a blender that makes it easy to whip up a single-serve smoothie. It's also the best blender for smoothies we've tested.

  3. Best Ninja Blender For Professional Use

    The best Ninja blender that we've tested for professional use is the Ninja Foodi Cold & Hot Blender. This blender has an excellent build quality and comes with a 64-ounce glass jar that you can use for hot blending. There's also a built-in heating element, so you can use it to heat ingredients when you're making something like soup or sauce. There are buttons for three speed presets and a few programs for different hot and cold recipes, like 'Smooth Soup' and 'Smoothie'. The blender offers a versatile overall performance since it makes decent smoothies, bar-quality crushed ice, and smooth almond butter. While the jar isn't dishwasher-safe and can't be immersed in water because of the heating element, there's a self-clean preset that makes it very easy to clean by hand.

    Unfortunately, even the lowest speed setting is quite fast, and if you use it to make something like a smoothie, the ingredients tend to splash up the sides of the jar. You may need to use the tamper to ensure everything gets blended. On the plus side, unlike most other Ninja blenders that we've tested, there's a two-part lid for the jar, so you can add ingredients or use the tamper without stopping the machine.

  4. Best Personal-Sized Ninja Blender

    The Ninja Foodi Power Nutri DUO is the best personal-sized Ninja blender we've tested. It has a few different preset modes, including a pulse button, and it delivers very versatile performance for a personal blender. It comes with a pair of 24-ounce jars with flip-top lids that you can use to make fantastic, silky smoothies and snow-like crushed ice. It also comes with a 14-ounce 'Power Nutri Βowl' that has rotating arms inside that help push ingredients off the sides of the jar towards the blades. This jar is for thicker recipes like smoothie bowls, and you can use it to make very smooth, spreadable almond butter in less than two minutes. The blender is easy to clean by hand, and you can also clean the blades, jars, and lids in your dishwasher.

    Unfortunately, although it's much more compact than most full-size blenders, the motor base is bulky for a personal blender. It's also quite loud when it's running, which can be annoying if you need to make multiple batches to feed a crowd or like to make an early-morning smoothie. Otherwise, it's a great choice if you're looking for a compact multi-purpose blender.

Compared to other brands


  • Tend to include personal jars. Quite a few Ninja blenders include a personal jar or two, so you can take your blends with you on the go.
  • Great build quality and easy to clean. Most Ninja blenders have a great build that feels sturdy, even though they have plastic transmissions. Thanks to their design, you can easily clean most of them by putting the jar, lid, and blade assembly into the dishwasher.
  • Comes with a variety of attachments. Many Ninja blenders come with additional attachments that help improve their versatility in the kitchen. These attachments can range from a dough blade to a food processor bowl and lid. Some even have dedicated modes for a specific attachment.
  • No speed dial. Unfortunately, you can't fine-tune a Ninja blender's speed as they don't have this feature.
  • No hot blending. Most Ninja blenders can't hot blend, so you can't puree hot food into soup.
  • No vacuum pump. Unfortunately, if you're looking to preserve the nutrients in your blends by removing air from the jar, these blenders don't usually have a vacuum pump.

Ninja produces a few full-size and personal blenders that excel at making silky smoothies. Most models tend to offer additional jars that are smaller, so you can easily take them on the go. A couple of them also have unique attachments like a dough blade or a micro-juicer for more versatility, which sets them apart from most other blenders. However, they have limited speed settings, and most can't hot blend, which is a bit disappointing if you like to make purees or soups.

Conclusion

Ninja manufactures a variety of full-size and personal blenders that feel well-built and sturdy. Most come with an additional jar to take your smoothies or other blends with you on the go. Some also come with unique attachments or accessories that give you even more versatility when processing food. However, they tend to favor preset speeds rather than a speed dial. Most Ninja blenders can't hot blend, either.
