FAQs

Cleaning

How can I clean my Ninja Chef?
  • Hand-Washing: Wash containers, blade assemblies, lids, and Tamper in warm, soapy water, using a dishwashing utensil with a handle to avoid direct contact with the blades. Exercise care when washing Pro-Extractor Blades® Assembly and Pitcher, as the blade assemblies are sharp. Thoroughly rinse and air-dry all parts.
  • Dishwasher: The Tamper and all containers, lids, and blade assemblies are dishwasher safe. It is recommended that the Tamper and lids be placed on the top rack of the dishwasher. Exercise care when handling Pitcher and Pro Extractor Blades assembly, as the blade assemblies are sharp.
  • Using CLEAN Mode: To run the self-cleaning program with the Pitcher, first add warm water to the MAX CLEAN line and a couple drops of dishwashing soap to the Pitcher. Secure the Pitcher lid and lid cap in place. Select CLEAN mode, then press START/STOP to begin. The unit will shut down when the self-cleaning cycle is complete. Make sure to thoroughly rinse and air-dry the Pitcher. When using CLEAN mode for the blender cup, fill the cup halfway with warm water and add one drop of dishwashing soap.
  • Motor Base: Turn off the unit and unplug the motor base before cleaning. Wipe motor base with a clean, damp cloth. Clean the control panel with a soft cloth, such as microfiber, to prevent scratching. To remove residue from the control panel, you may use an all-purpose cleaner.

Pitcher

How do I assemble the Pitcher?

When you are facing the front of the blender the pitcher handle should be on the right side of the base or facing you for the pitcher to sit correctly. Once the pitcher is on the base, twist clockwise or to the left to form a square and lock the pitcher in place. The handle will now be aligned with the front right corner or front left corner of the base.
