First Look: Pulverizing with the Ninja Ultima Blender

1:48 /

The Ninja's value slices through the competition.

Hi. I'm Katie Pilkington for CNET and I'm standing next to the Ninja Ultima Blender. As you can see this is a really large blender. It measures 18 inches tall and it leaves a footprint of about 9 inches by 8 inches. So it is a good size blender and it will take up a considerable amount of space. It has a 72-ounce pitcher which gives you a lot of capacity to blend large quantities of food, but what I love most about this blender isn't so much its size or its power which is 1500 watts, but the options that it gives you. Ninja has made it a point to offer a lot of options with this blender such as this quad blade that's removable that will help you power through large quantities of food that are in the blender, but because it's removable you can also just use the 4 blades at the bottom which function identically to the other models. The other thing I really like are these two 16-ounce to-go cups which utilize a blade lid that hooks right on to the blender base itself. We made a smoothie in one of these in 5 pulses, and I could really visualize it being useful for people who have hectic mornings on the go because you could fill them up the night before with your smoothie ingredients, attach it to the blender base, and be out the door in less than 30 seconds. So if you like a blender that has a lot of power behind it and space but also gives you a lot of flexibility for different ways to use it, the Ninja Ultima is a really awesome option. Add to that fact that it costs $199 which is fully half of what its closest competitors in terms of performance, cost and I would call the Ninja an excellent, excellent value for your money. It will definitely give you a lot of bang for your buck and will power its way through anything you put in it. So for CNET with the Ninja Ultima, I'm Katie Pilkington.
