The Ninja Mega Kitchen System BL770 is a good overall blender. It comes with a large main jar and two additional personal jars for smoothies. It also has a food processor attachment with extra accessories. It comes with very sharp blades that do a great job at crushing ice and makes very smooth almond butter. However, it doesn't do hot mixing, so it's not recommended for making soups. On the upside, it's very easy to clean and dishwasher safe.

The Ninja Mega Kitchen System BL770 is an excellent blender for professional use thanks to its sturdy design and great overall performance.

This is a rather bulky blender. It's pretty tall and large, so it either needs to be stored in a spacious kitchen cupboard or directly on your counter.

Build Quality

This blender is very well-built. The plastic used feels solid, although the transmission gear could have been metal, which would feel more durable. On the upside, the assembly of all pieces is premium, and there are no gaps. Overall, it feels high-end.

The main pitcher has a big 72-ounce capacity. It also comes with a pair of 18-ounce personal jars included for single-serve drinks like smoothies. Also included is a 64-ounce food processing bowl that you can use with its own blade assembly for chopping and slicing. If you want a combo food processor/blender with a somewhat more compact design, you may prefer the Ninja Foodi Power Blender Ultimate System, which comes with different blades for slicing and grating that work with the main pitcher instead of a separate jar.

The main jar only locks into place when the arrow on the lid is aligned with the corresponding arrow on the jar. While there's no dedicated mechanism to add ingredients to your mix, you can raise the serving beak if you want to put in small items or liquid, although this isn't as convenient as a 2-part lid.

It's fantastic for processing small batches of fibrous ingredients. Using one of the 18-ounce personal jars, it takes roughly two minutes to make a very silky smoothie with ingredients like kale. The only downside is that you need to hold down the 'Single Serve' button during the process.

It's good at processing fibrous ingredients in the main jar. If you use its full 72-ounce capacity, it makes a very well-blended puree with ingredients like kale. The ingredients aren't completely liquified, and you can see some small grains leftover. A more major downside is that you need to blend for almost 10 minutes for the best results.

The Ninja BL770's ice crushing performance is outstanding. It takes a very short amount of time to crush the ice down to a snow-like consistency, which is amazing.

On top of having a 'Crush' and a 'Single-Serve' setting, you can use the food processing attachment for dough with the right program and blade assembly. Unfortunately, it doesn't have a self-clean program, which can be found on high-end models. If you're looking for a blender with a timer, check out the Ninja Professional Plus Kitchen System with Auto-iQ.

It's very easy to clean this full-size blender. The removable blade assembly can be put in the dishwasher, and everything is easily accessible. All jars are also dishwasher-safe.

Compared To Other Blenders

The Ninja Mega Kitchen System BL770 is a good all-around blender, but it can't hot blend like the Ninja Foodi Cold & Hot Blender. On the upside, it comes with plenty of accessories like most other Ninja Kitchen System blenders and is equipped for almost anything you can throw at it, on top of being very easy to clean after your mixes.

Ninja Foodi Power Pitcher System

The Ninja Mega Kitchen System BL770 is a better full-size blender than the Ninja Foodi Power Pitcher System. The Mega Kitchen feels better built and comes with a food processing attachment. While it takes a bit longer than the Power Pitcher to make almond butter, it's still smooth and spreadable. Its additional jar also makes a silky smoothie, and it can make snow-like crushed ice. However, the Power Pitcher has a speed dial, and its other additional jar also makes a silky smoothie.

Ninja Blender Duo with Auto-iQ BL642

The Ninja Mega Kitchen System BL770 and the Ninja Blender Duo with Auto-iQ BL642 have different strengths, and you may prefer either one. The Duo is much better for making almond butter and comes with three personal jars and to-go lids, while the Kitchen System only comes with two. On the other hand, the Kitchen System includes a food processor attachment, although we don't test it currently.

Ninja Professional Plus Kitchen System with Auto-iQ

The Ninja Mega Kitchen System BL770 is a more versatile overall blender than the Ninja Professional Plus Kitchen System with Auto-iQ. The BL770 can make smooth, spreadable almond butter, and it can make a well-blended smoothie in less time. Both blenders come with similar attachments, but the BL770's personal jars are only 16 ounces, while the Professional Plus's personal jars are 24 ounces. The Professional Plus also comes with more preset modes, preset speeds, and a timer.

NutriBullet Blender Combo

The Ninja Mega Kitchen System BL770 is a better full-size blender overall than the NutriBullet Blender Combo. The Ninja has a better build quality, and it can produce almond butter and smoothies with better consistency. It can also make snow-like crushed ice and cleaning it is significantly easier. However, the NutriBullet produces a silkier smoothie with its personal jar than that of the Ninja.

Oster Pro 1200

The Ninja Mega Kitchen System BL770 is better for most purposes than the Oster Pro 1200. The Ninja has a significantly better build quality. Its main jar has a bigger capacity and does a much better job of almond butter and crushed ice.

The ΒL770 is a little better for making single-serve smoothies since it makes a silkier puree with ingredients like kale using its personal jars. It also has a better build quality. The Ultimate is more convenient to make nut butter if you use its 18-ounce 'Smoothie Βowl Maker' jar and comes with a blade for grating cheese.
