Ninja is one of the most popular blenders on the market, and the 1000 (BL610) features 1000 watts of power, Total Crushing technology, a 72-ounce capacity and a BPA-free design. The perfect blender to make smoothies for your family, this model even has the power to crush ice, and whole fruits and vegetables in just a matter of seconds.
During our Ninja Professional Blender 1000 review, we found that there is a lot to love and little wrong with this blender.
- Crushes ice with ease
- Blades can be completely removed for easy cleaning
- Dishwasher safe
- Three great modes choose from
- Doesn’t lend completely smooth without a little extra help
I want to elaborate on the smooth blending. I found that my smoothie was a little thicker than I anticipated, and this problem can be remedied by putting in your ingredients slowly. I recommend the following:
- Add your juices and fruits
- Blend for one minute
- Add in remaining items and blend again on high
That’s all you need to do to make a perfectly smooth smoothie. I found that the majority of blenders in the under $100 range have this issue, but it’s not much of a concern, and you’ll experience this with higher-end models in some cases.
Ninja Professional Blender 1000 (BL610) Review
With a name like Ninja, you expect blades that are able to cut through anything with ease. The BL 610 is able to demolish ice with Total Crushing technology that I’ve never experienced before. This is perhaps the most efficient ice crushing blender I’ve tried yet.
Backed by 1000 W of power and three speed settings, you’re able to cut virtually any item you add to the blender – ice and frozen fruits beware!
The blender has a 72-ounce holding capacity – enough for all of your smoothie needs – and it’s BPA-free. While I would’ve loved to have a glass holding container, being BPA-free means that this pitcher is just as good. You also won’t have to worry about it cracking or breaking because you added ice or other hard items to the blender.
You’ll also find that a neat little recipe book has been included for you, and there are slow, medium and high settings available when blending.
A pulsating function is also available, and this is a great way to add a little extra froth to the top of your drink.
I’ve added apples, dates, beets and other items to this blender, and never had an issue with it jamming or getting stuck in the process. The powerful motor is a little loud, but it is extremely powerful and ensures that your blending needs are taken care of.
