What is Nutrient & Vitamin Extraction*?
The Nutri Ninja® with Auto-iQ® can blend ice and frozen fruit in seconds! Traditional juicers provide little juice and remove the pulp which contains the healthy fiber, whereas the Nutri Ninja® provides juicing with the benefits of entire fruits and vegetables, not just the juice.

The addition of the Auto-iQ® Technology maximizes the nutrients that can be extracted from your juices because of the pulsing and pausing.

*Extract a drink containing vitamins and nutrients from fruits and vegetables.

Using the Blender

How do I care for my Nutri Ninja® with Auto-iQ®?
Use a damp cloth to wipe the motor base clean. The cups, blade, and lids are dishwasher-safe, and it is recommended to put everything on the top rack. You can also squeeze 2-3 drops of dish soap into the jar, fill halfway with warm water and pulse, 5-10 times. For easiest cleaning, rinse or clean the cups and blades immediately after use.

The Nutri Ninja® cups and blades are also dishwasher-safe. Use extreme caution when cleaning & handling the blades. Always store the blades attached to the cup or a safe area.

Troubleshooting


This FAQ page is a great place to find info, tips and help. Just make sure you’ve read your Owner’s Guide before using your unit.

Using the Blender

What if my Nutri Ninja® with Auto-iQ® will not turn on?
Be sure your Nutri Ninja® with Auto-iQ® is assembled correctly and plugged in. The cup must be turned clockwise to lock into place. Once the cup is locked onto the base, the timer will illuminate. Press one of the buttons to activate.
Your feedback is on its way to us
Thank you for your feedback
Something went wrong, please try again later
Why does the unit not run when the timer is lit and I press a button?
The unit may be overheated.
As a safety feature, the motor will automatically shut off if it becomes too warm during heavy loads. Unplug the unit from the wall and wait 15 minutes before using again.
For troubleshooting and assembly tips at any time, refer to the Instruction Booklet which can be found in the packaging of your unit.
Your feedback is on its way to us
Thank you for your feedback
Something went wrong, please try again later
My motor turns on, but why doesn't the blade rotate?
It is possible that you have overfilled your cup. If so, carefully remove some ingredients and try again. It is also possible that the thermal protection has been activated. Unplug your unit and wait 15 minutes before plugging it back in.
Your feedback is on its way to us
Thank you for your feedback

Lid/blade assembly hard to assemble.
Set the cup on a level surface. Place the lid or blade assembly on the top of the cup and align the threads so that the lid/blades sit flat on the cup. Twist clockwise so that the lid/blades evenly align to the cup until you have a tight seal.
Your feedback is on its way to us
Thank you for your feedback
Something went wrong, please try again later
Food is not evenly chopped.
For best results when chopping, make sure all ingredients are as dry as possible. Cut pieces down to even sizes, and reduce the amount of food in the cup. Use very short pulses by quickly pressing the "PULSE" button.
Your feedback is on its way to us
Thank you for your feedback
Something went wrong, please try again later
Doesn't mix well, food gets stuck.
Using the Auto-iQ programs is the easiest way to achieve great results. The pulses and pauses allow the food to settle towards the blade. If food is routinely getting stuck adding some liquid will usually help.

When packing the cups, start with fresh items, then powders/nuts. Add liquids, and finally frozen items or ice.

Why do certain programs not work?
The programs were designed to give you the best results for the jar you are working with. As such not all the programs work on all the jars. For example, the stacked blades in our pitcher are best for crushing ice, so the frozen drink button is not available on our food processor because your results simply wouldn’t be as good. 
Your feedback is on its way to us
Thank you for your feedback
Something went wrong, please try again later
Sometimes the clock counts up, other times it counts down?
All of our Auto-iQ programs are timed to finish on their own so you don't have to stand there and watch to make sure your results come out great. Our speeds however (low, med, hi) will start counting from 0 and count up until the auto-shut off is reached.

My blender turns on, but why doesn't the blade rotate?

Thank you for your feedback
Something went wrong, please try again later
Why do I get a flashing "ERR" message on the display with my Nutri Ninja® cup?
With your Nutri Ninja® cup there is a safety feature that after you run 3 consecutive times without removing the cup from the base the blender will shut off and you will have to unplug your unit and wait 15 minutes to be able to use it again.

best juicer i ever had and exceptional customer service

Already tried so many different products from cheap ones to expensive ones like the nutri bullet and this one tops it all.

Already tried so many different products from cheap ones to expensive ones like the nutri bullet and this one tops it all. It grinds everything to liquid, even its big competitor nutri bullet which still leaves some residue and sludge. I use this everyday to juice my vegetables as part of my nutrition diet. They also have excellent customer service cause mine broke after using it for 11 months and I have a 12 month warranty. When I called them about the issue of my blender they shipped right away a replacement item on the same day and got the replacement just a few days later. They are great will be buying another one for my friend. I am happy to be an advocate of this product!

Wow better than my vitamix!

I’ve had my Vitamix for about a month now I just got this new a ninja and I am in love with it blends way smoother than my Vitamix it only takes about a minute to blend Vitamix it takes almost two to three minutes and I’m always having to stop and check in the blades and things like that I am in love with the new new Ninja Blender. My Vitamix that I have retails about $450 my ninja that I got retails about $100 I would say and yes my Vitamix and will be going back to the store!

Awesome Machine!

I’ve used the machine everyday for about a month and it has worked flawlessly. The blade design is what I found superior to the competition. The only thing I would like to see changed is with the 3 blending cups. I measure certain items and then add them to the cup. I would like to see measurement increments molded into the cups. Other than that I would and do recommend this machine to anyone who is looking for a quality product.

Just Great

Bought the IQ it is the best appliance I have bought. Works great, easy to clean. When you see the adds saying I have so much more energy did not really believe. I have a lot more energy and am slowly losing kilos. I make up a blend of fruit and veg for breakfast and I do not feel hungry till lunch and I get the fruit and veg each day that we should have. Love It

WORTH THE MONEY

i bought the ninja with auto IQ a couple of weeks ago and love it every since. I watch the infomercial and it caught my interest, then saw it at a store and on sale and had to get it. The whole family loves it and can’t stop asking for more smoothies.

I love my new Ninja Auto-iQ!!! I just add my favorite green such as cucumber, kale and celery, green apple, banana or pear, ginger, lemon, coconut milk and ice, along with a scoop or protein powder! Yummy!!! the only think I peel is the bananana, ginger and I trim a little of the lemon rind! My Ninja is awesome! I feel great and have noticed more energy and improved digestive track!

Hi! I had a Magic Bullet for quite a while, it broke so I got a NutriBullet. What an incredible waste of money! I ended up returning it and purchased a Nurti Ninja Auto iQ! I LOVE IT! This is by far the BEST machine I have ever used! I do not normally write reviews but I am so compelled to let people know the quality in this machine is incredible! I only wish the Nutri Ninja came with an extra Extractor Blade since I use it so much! Thank you for an AMAZING PRODUCT!

Great but loud!

I bought the nutri ninja BL480 over the holidays and, I have to say, I love it. Easy to use and clean! My one and only complaint is that it’s a really loud machine. To my neighbours, it sounds like I’m drilling holes in my wall. If Ninja were to create a ’silent’ version, I would buy it in a heartbeat.

So I bought it without physically handling it. I’ve made 5 drinks today - it is excellent. A heavy + solid machine. It grips to the bench. Everything seems to be very good quality: thick bowls/cups, thick/sharp stainless steel blades + strong-as-ox motor. The drinks we made today are at least equal to a $10 Boost Juice drink.
