The Ninja Foodi Power Nutri DUO is a personal blender. It comes with two 24-ounce jars to take with you on-the-go. It also comes with one unique 14-ounce jar that has manually rotating arms that help push food into the vortex. While it can't hot blend, it does an outstanding job making silky smoothies, snow-like crushed ice, and smooth, spreadable almond butter in little time. However, its controls don't offer any speed levels but instead act as a timer.
