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...

      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!

        I love this product. It comes with a blender and food processor attachments so you can use it for more than just drinks.
        It's so compact and you can keep it anywhere.
        The blender works great, I never have to stop and stir! Good pulsating system.

          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.

              Wow I love the blender. It is more like a food processor than a blender but it was absolutely Worth it. If I try to blend spices it takes a while doesn't do that good of a job because of how the blades are shaped that being said it's great for everything else even chopping up chicken to make ground chicken. And it's the perfect portion size I'm able to blend small things very easily which I always do especially for cooking. And to top it off it is very easy to clean. I have been telling all my friends to go out and buy one and ditch their magic bullets. Even my kids use it when they wanna make themselves the banana smoothie and I don't have to worry about than sticking their hand in a blender because the blender goes on top of the plastic canister. I was going to buy the larger ninja but I felt like that one is too large and I didn't really need three huge canisters considering I don't make large portions when I cook.

              Comments about Ninja Master Prep® Pro System QB1004:

              This Ninja Master Prep Pro System comes in a set of 3 containers (with their own blades and top) and one motor. In our household we like to use the small container to grind up meat and it does an excellent job in grinding with just a few pulses. So if you're frugal and like to save some money, you could easily grind up your own meat versus buying the ground meat, which tends to cost more than whole cuts. As for the medium and large containers, we mainly use it to make drinks, plus they're shaped like a pitcher. During summer we tend to make icier drinks and the blender crushes the ice nicely like a slushie which makes great smoothies and mangonadas! Now for the things that aren't great about the Ninja blender is that the blades could be difficult to clean depending on what you grinded, such as meat, and butter. Another element that I found to be disappointing is the design of the containers, because it doesn't help with circulating the food item when being grinded. For example, when I was grinding almond seeds to make almond flour/meal, the almond keeps getting stuck to the side of the container so I would have to constantly open it up and mix it before pulsing again. Overall I am satisfied with the capabilities of this Ninja blender and would defiantly recommend it.
