I cook a lot...and I mean A LOT!!! I was initially and have been for the past 2 years - BLOWN AWAY - by how powerful this is and how efficient it is at anything I've thrown at it, and believe me, I've put it to the test on so many things, and it has come through like a champion on every single one! It will LITERALLY make fine, delicate "snow" from very large ice cubes in a matter of seconds. It comes with various blade configurations that you can use for the various tasks you need to perform in your kitchen, from chopping onions, celery, carrots, bell peppers, whatever, which is what I mainly find that I use it for in my kitchen. But I've used the larger pitcher to puree entire cans of tomatoes or other vegetables to add to dishes such as spaghetti sauces and soups. I've made pesto in the smaller container. Probably what most people would use the larger pitcher for - as I do often - is to make smoothies. This pulverizes the skins and seeds of most fruits, and I do like to keep the skins and seeds on whichever fruits and vegetables have edible skins, cores and seeds for optimum health benefits. This Ninja is so powerful that I have found that, if I am not careful, I can over blend easily and make my smoothie "too smooth," and if you make smoothies regularly, you probably know what I am talking about. I loved this blending/prepping system so much, I purchased one for my daughter. Amazingly, I got it for under $60, and to me...that's a STEAL, especially compared to other systems and blenders. I'm going on my third year using it extensively and it is still going strong with no decrease in performance or issues whatsoever!

This blender did everything they said it would....for a time

Literally. I could make snow from ice cubes. Hummus in minutes. And more. But mainly, I did purchase this for blending fruit & ice or Garbanzo beans with spices. Read complete review

Literally. I could make snow from ice cubes. Hummus in minutes. And more. But mainly, I did purchase this for blending fruit & ice or Garbanzo beans with spices.
For a solid month I was seeing superb results, sometimes 3 or 4 times a day. Then I noticed things taking longer to blend. As I noticed that, the longer time frame began to seem to be exacerbated by blades that didn't want to stay locked together (blades are two part, lock together by sliding one over the the other and twisting into a locked position akin to child-safe medication bottles) The upper, outermost blade seemed to loosen enough that it would barely move through food, and when I looked closer, I found that motion was only attributed to spinning, Only one blade was working- The bottom blade. The very location of the blade that the manufacturer is attempting to improve upon. I used it daily for about 3 months total. The last month or so was ridiculous. I felt like I was going crazy. Doing it wrong, Putting it together wrong, something..... but It just didn't last. The parts were not made to stay together sturdily - And I always hand washed mine... Who knows-It still works . Its downstairs right now--sitting on my counter. Nice and shiny and clean. Only I haven't used it but one time in the most recent 6 months. Guess I need a new one...

Comments about Ninja Master Prep® Pro System QB1004:

The blender comes with 3 different sized pitchers and three different sized blades. When I first used this, I was confused about the design, because most blenders have the buttons and the plug at the bottom. The lid has a button on it so when you press it it will blend. The design is kind of unique because of this. It blends and chops up things pretty good. I use it to make smoothies and sometimes to blend up ingredients for cakes and brownies. You'll have to stir with a spoon to make sure there's no big chunks. It's best to cut things up into small pieces before throwing them in it. It's a little hard to clean though. You have to be careful when handling the blades. If there are not in use, put them in a place where they won't fall and injure someone.

      This blender is the coolest little blender that I've ever owned! I make a lot of smoothies and frozen drinks, especially in the summer. I can mix like a mad woman with this blender. Whether I'm serving a crowd or just making up a drink for myself, this Ninja has me covered. It comes in three pieces. A small blender bottom, a large blender bottom (both with lids), and a removeable motor top to interact with both. No buttons or controls. You just push down and hold for the length of time desired or push quickly for a pulse. Smooth and creamy drinks every single time!

        I use my ninja all day. Starting off with a smoothie and ending with cheesecake for desert. The machine can crush ice efficiently and completely. The small container is great for making homemade salsa and storing it in the bowl. Becareful when washing the blades as they are extremely sharp. The easiest way I have found to wash it is to add soap and water and turn it on. Rinse and dry!

          this food processor saved my life. It allowed me to eat things i couldn't otherwise when i had a health issue. We could put some of the accessories in to wash while we used the others to prepare my meals. The main problem we had was deciding where to put all the accessories when i could eat again.

              I received this for my birthday because I wanted to start making smoothies! Regular blenders always leaves ice in chunks and just does not mix well! So when I seen this and read the box I had to have it! And I am so glad I got it, it makes the most perfect smoothies and crushes all the ice!

                  Love using this product for multiple things in the kitchen. Ice crushing is great for smoothies and even gets spinach microscopic! The ninja is also great for using as a good processor. I have made homemade peanut butter and hummus. Easy to use! Really would recommend this product to any one.
