We love this appliance. The Ninja Kitchen System looks like a blender, but it is far more versatile because it functions as a blender, food processor and mixer. You can crush ice, make smoothies or knead bread.
The appliance truly is a system. It comes with a 72 ounce processing pitcher, a 40 ounce processing bowl and two 16-ounce single serve, blender cups with to-go lids. The processing bowls each have lock-in safely lids. The large pitcher has a cutting blade and whipping paddle. The small processing bowl has a cutting blade, dough blade and a cookie dough paddle. The single serve blender cups come with a single serve blade. The Ninja base has a lever to activate the suction feet to hold the unit firmly in place on the counter while mixing.
The Kitchen System has a powerful 1100 watt motor that can tackle every task you throw at it. If for some reason your overload the motor, and we did this making bread, the motor stops automatically to prevent damage. When this happened to us, we were convinced the motor had burned out. We simply followed the manufacturer’s directions to reset the motor thermostat and our appliance worked perfectly again. What a great failsafe.
If you are in need of a new blender, food processor or mixer, we’d suggest rolling your needs into one and investing in a Ninja. It is a terrific, hard-working appliance for the experienced cook or a novice setting up their first kitchen.
