Ninja Professional 1000 (BL610) Blender Review

The craze for blenders may have only started five or six years ago, but since then the desire to own one of these clever little machines has blown up. Everyone wants one in their home so that they can create and experiment with smoothies and as many milkshake varieties as they can handle! This review is going to help you ease your way into this new blender craze by taking a look at the Ninja Professional 1000 machine. Let’s see what it can do for you!

Will I actually find this blender useful?

If you spend a lot of time in the kitchen and you are a big fan of creating different drinks then the answer is yes. This blender has 1000 watts of power which means that it will blast through ice crushing, blending, and pureeing with absolute ease. If you go ahead with the purchase of the Ninja, you can look forward to using the “Total Crushing Technology” which means that the power in the machine helps the blades to pulverize and crush through ice, fruit, and vegetables in seconds. The possibilities with a blender are almost endless and you’ll have hours of fun making delicious sauces, dips, and smoothies!

Am I going to need to extend my kitchen to make way for this behemoth?

Fortunately, even though it is an extremely powerful piece of kit, this blender won’t take up a lot of room in your home. It comes in at a respectable 10.6 x 8.2 x 15.8 inches, and with its 72 ounce pitcher on top you’ll have no worries making juice for the whole family in this machine!

Tell me about its good points?

The “Total Crushing Technology” means you’ll save a lot of time and effort when compared to other similar blenders. The vitamin extraction methods used with the machine mean that getting your five a day just became a little bit easier too! This blender is home to a huge 72 ounce capacity blending jug, so whether you want to make a small margarita for just yourself, or a large amount of apple juice for the whole family, you can do both with ease.

What about the negative ones?

There is one main complaint about this blender and it is a biggie. According to the Consumer Safety Products Commission there have been at least 18 reports of injuries from the blades popping out unexpectedly. When customers have gone to wash their blenders, the mechanism holding the blades has failed and they have been injured as a result. Other complaints have been regarding the design making it difficult to ensure everything is blended to a good level, and the build quality of the machine as a whole being low. 

Should I buy it?

When all is reflected upon, this is certainly not the best blender to choose. It has some positive points such as its large capacity, but when a machine has had multiple complaints about it injuring people it is something to avoid. Until Ninja rectify this issue I would steer clear of this blender!
