These juices are bursting with health-boosting vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, trace elements and plant nutrients!

Does it ALL!

Great product; so powerful and versatile. A great asset to healthy eating! And, I love the spice grinder accessory I purchased separately. It grinds my ’cold brew’ coffee beans perfectly.

Fabulous Power BL492w 1200 watts!!!!! (the BL492 has 1100 watts and doesn’t come with the food processor). This Ninja Auto-IQ compact pro model series has more options and you can order quite a few add-ons direct from Ninja. They have a nut coffee grinder and a slicer I might get later.

This Ninja Auto-IQ compact pro model series has more options and you can order quite a few add-ons direct from Ninja. They have a nut coffee grinder and a slicer I might get later. The 900 watt model isn’t all that compared to this model, I wanted a smaller unit that looks good, don’t take up as much space and is as good as the pro series blender types and this fits the bill. I can pulverize anything carrots, ice, black berries no problem. I use the extractor button and it stops 3 or 4 times and starts up again that way the heavier items float down. if you need a little more pulverizing push the pulse a couple of times. I some times add-stir in a little more unsweetened yummy coconut milk only 45 cals a cup into the smoothie to thin it. I love love the stainless cup and also the screw on cover is sturdy and you don’t dribble drinking from it. I put it in my freezer after making my smoothie to chill a few min before I go to my Zumba class. The blades are easy to clean as you don’t have to take it apart and all are top shelf dishwasher safe. This unit is strong and easy to use Love It! I bought this unit direct from Ninja with the easy pay plan a month ago. You can also get a life time warranty too.

Love it!

I don’t usually write reviews. I have never juiced before, but had to for a special allergic diet I need to do. I did a lot of research on juicers and was going to buy the Breville juicer. What made me hesitate, was that the Breville juicer spits out the juice, but puts the pulp in another compartment. I thought: ”Isn’t that a waste? I’m sure the pulp has some nutrient/mineral quality.” So I then asked someone at work and they use the NutriBullet. I asked what about the Ninja and they said...more

Well, I found a review online where someone loved their Ninja. So I went to Kohl’s and they were having a great sale and found the Nutri Ninja Auto-IQ Compact System. I loved the compact size and that it would fit under my cabinets. I also loved that it had 2 sip cups, a frozen drink cup, and a 40 oz. blender/chopper cup for blending/chopping/dough. I bought it on a Friday and started using it Saturday. Love it! It’s so easy to use, and easy clean up. Can’t wait to use it for other baking/blending recipes as the holidays are coming up.
