The Ninja Foodi Power Nutri DUO, also sold as the 'Ninja Foodi Smoothie Bowl Maker', is a compact personal blender. It comes with a pair of 24-ounce jars and to-go lids for single-serve smoothies and other drinks. There's also a 14-ounce 'Smoothie Bowl Maker' jar with rotating arms inside of it meant for thicker mixtures. Like most personal blenders, it can't hot blend and has only one speed setting.
The Ninja Foodi Power Nutri DUO is good for multi-purpose use. With both its 24-ounce and 14-ounce jars, it maintains a similarly fantastic performance making silky smoothies. It can also make smooth nut butter as well as snow-like crushed ice. It can't hot blend, though. On the upside, it's very easy to clean.
The Ninja Foodi Power Nutri DUO is superb for single-serve smoothies. The 24-ounce jars make an exceptionally smooth puree with ingredients like kale, so it's ideal for silky green smoothies. There are resealable lids included for the jars, which are easy to clean by hand or in the dishwasher.
The Ninja Foodi Power Nutri DUO is excellent for multiple servings of smoothies. Even if you fill the jars to their maximum capacity, it makes a silky smoothie with fibrous ingredients. You can prepare two small smoothie servings in one jar, but their capacities are too small to easily serve a crowd. On the plus side, there are two jars with to-go lids included.
The Ninja Foodi Power Nutri DUO is decent for ice-crushing. It can make snow-like crushed ice in less than a couple of minutes, which is perfect for any frozen drink. The blender itself is also well built and easy to clean.
The Ninja Foodi Power Nutri DUO can't hot blend, so if you want to use it for soup, your ingredients need to cool down first. It's fantastic for blending fibrous ingredients like kale or broccoli into a silky puree, but the biggest jars only hold 24 ounces, so you'll probably need to blend in batches.
The Ninja Foodi Power Nutri DUO is acceptable for professional use. While it can't hot blend, and its personal-sized jars limit you to small servings, it makes excellent blends. It can make smooth and spreadable almond butter as well as snow-like crushed ice and silky purees of fibrous ingredients. It's also very easy to clean.
The Ninja Foodi Power Nutri DUO (SS101), also called the Ninja Foodi Smoothie Bowl Maker and Nutrient Extractor, comes in one color: 'Silver.' You can see the label for the model we tested here.
There's also a variant (CO101B) that's only available at Costco (US). It's identical, except that it comes with an 18-ounce Power Nutri Bowl (or Smoothie Bowl Maker) instead of a 14-ounce one. While you may get different results with the bigger jar, we expect this variant to perform similarly to our unit.
If you come across any other variants of this blender, let us know in the discussions, and we'll update our review.
The Ninja SS101 is a personal blender. It comes with three personal jars, two of which have a 24-ounce capacity. It also comes with a 14-ounce 'Power Nutri Bowl' or 'Smoothie Bowl Maker' that uses manually rotating arms to help push food towards the blades. Unlike many other personal blenders, it has no problem making smooth nut butter or snow-like crushed ice. It's also outstandingly easy to clean.

The Ninja Foodi Power Pitcher System and the Ninja Foodi Power Nutri DUO perform similarly, and you may prefer either one depending on what type of blender you're looking for. The Pitcher System is a full-size blender equipped with a speed dial. It comes with a large capacity 72-ounce main pitcher as well as a couple of smaller personal jars. On the other hand, the Nutri DUO is a more compact single-speed blender that comes with three personal jars. It makes crushed ice with a better texture and takes less time to blend a smoothie.
The Ninja Foodi Power Nutri DUO is better for most purposes than the BlendJet 2. The Ninja is much more suitable for processing fibrous ingredients and making nut butter. It's easier to clean by hand, has a much better build quality, and makes snow-like crushed ice. However, the BlendJet is a battery-powered blender that's intended to be portable, and it's a much better option if you're looking for a personal blender that's easy to carry around.
The Ninja Foodi Power Nutri DUO is better than the NutriBullet Rx for most purposes. The DUO does a much better job of making nut butter and processing fibrous ingredients.

The DUO has a significantly better build quality and makes silkier smoothies as well as crushed ice with a better texture. It's also much easier to clean by hand and has buttons for a few preset modes that act as timers. On the other hand, the Nutri-Blender Plus is also fantastic for making smoothies, and some may prefer its smaller, more lightweight design.
The Ninja Foodi Power Nutri DUO is better than the Magic Bullet Kitchen Express. The Ninja is better built and more versatile since you can use it to crush ice. It's also easier to use for tougher blends like nut butter. The jars and blades are easier to clean by hand. However, the Magic Bullet is much quieter, and it's a blender/food processor combo, so it comes with a bowl and blades for slicing and chopping.
The Ninja Foodi Power Nutri DUO is better than the Ninja Fit for most purposes. The DUO has a better build quality and is easier to use, since you don't need to press down on the jar to blend. Its personal jars for single-serve smoothies have a bigger capacity, and it also comes with a 'Smoothie Βowl Maker' jar that makes it very easy to use for recipes like nut butter. On the other hand, it's very loud, and if you're just looking for a simple smoothie maker, you may prefer the Ninja Fit for that reason.
The Blendtec Chef 600 and the Ninja Foodi Power Nutri DUO have different strengths, and you may prefer either, depending on what you're looking for. The Ninja is a personal blender with a smaller capacity, but it makes better almond butter, smoothies, and crushed ice. It comes with to-go lids for two of its jars, so you can easily take a smoothie with you on the go. On the other hand, the Βlendtec is a full-size blender. Its main pitcher comes with a two-part lid, meaning you can add ingredients mid-blend. You can also use it to process hot ingredients.
The Ninja Foodi Power Nutri DUO is a little better than the Beast Health Blender. The Ninja is easier to clean by hand, and all of its components, including the blades, are dishwasher-safe. It comes with two jars you can use to make single-serve smoothies and does a better job of crushing ice. However, the Beast has a better build quality and design you might find more aesthetic. It's significantly quieter, which might be important to you, especially since the DUO is very loud.
It's a short blender as its motor base isn't very tall. While it still takes up some room on your counter, you can easily store it away in a cupboard, and the jar is removable.
It has a good build quality. Its parts are made of plastic that varies in thickness. The motor base feels a little thin and not very premium. However, the jars are thick in comparison, and one jar has a rotating arm mechanism, which helps push food away from the jar's walls and towards the vortex.
It comes with a pair of 24-ounce personal jars with to-go lids. There's also a 14-ounce jar included that Ninja calls a 'Power Nutri Bowl' or 'Smoothie Bowl Maker'. It's meant for thicker mixtures and has arms inside of it that you can rotate with a knob on top to help keep the ingredients moving.
The jars and lids are made of plastic and are top-rack dishwasher-safe.
Its blade assembly has eight sharp blades. You can put the blade assembly on the top rack of your dishwasher for an easy clean.
The blade assembly screws onto the jars like a lid before docking on the motor base. There's also a to-go lid for each 24-ounce jar, plus one storage lid.
It has a power cable long enough to reach an outlet near your kitchen counter. However, it doesn't have a stowaway compartment to hide the power cord when not in use.
It's superb for small batches of fibrous ingredients. Using one of the 24-ounce jars, it quickly makes a silky smooth puree with ingredients like kale.
It's also fantastic for processing bigger batches of fibrous ingredients. If you fill the 24-ounce jar to its maximum capacity, it easily liquifies fibrous ingredients like kale.
This blender is outstanding for crushing ice. It takes about 20 seconds to crush four ice cubes into snow-like crushed ice, ideal for frozen desserts and slushies.
It makes outstanding almond butter. It takes less than two minutes using its 14-ounce 'Smoothie Bowl Maker' jar. Thanks to its 'built-in tamper' feature, you can twist the knob on top to rotate arms inside the jar to help incorporate all the ingredients. The result is a smooth butter that's spreadable on toast. A few other Ninja blenders come with jars with a similar design, including the Ninja TWISTi, a full-size blender with a 34-ounce version that works very well for nut butter.
Like most personal blenders, it has only one speed setting, so you can't adjust the speed to suit your recipe.
There are two sets of blending programs: one for the 24-ounce jars and the other for the 14-ounce jar. These programs don't control the speed but act as a timer. For the 24-ounce jars, the 'Extract' setting lasts 75 seconds, and the 'Smoothie' setting lasts 55 seconds. When you're using the 'Smoothie Bowl Maker', you can choose between 'Spread' which lasts 45 seconds, and 'Bowl', which lasts 30 seconds. You can also use the 'Start/Stop' button to blend continuously.
