The highly-effective Ninja Ultima Blender (pictures)
A closer look at the Ninja Ultima Blender.
The Ninja Ultima comes with a 72-ounce pitcher as well as two 16-ounce single-serving cups that connect directly to the blender with a blade-bearing lid. Once blended, each cup has its own travel lid for on-the-go convenience.
This tower blade is removable. If removed, the blender still has its attached lower blades, which resemble those on other blenders. This tower blade was unique to this model in the roundup of blenders we tested and was especially useful for large quantities.
