The Total Crushing® & Power Chopping Blade will coarsely or finely chop ingredients for a thick puree or salsa. The dough blade will mix and combine ingredients into a dough or batter.

Motor won't start or the blades won't spin.
If the motor will not start please ensure that the power cord is plugged into an outlet.

If the power cord is securely plugged into the wall and the motor is still not responding, unplug the unit from the wall and make sure that the blade assembly is properly installed and that the power pod is correctly aligned. When aligning the power pod, make sure that the splash guard lid's male connector lines up with the female part on the power pod.

Food is unevenly chopped.
Variation is natural depending on the size of the ingredients you are chopping.

To create the most even consistency, we recommend adding ingredients in the following order:

First, add fresh fruits and vegetables, followed by leafy greens and herbs. Next, pour in liquid and/or yogurt. You can then add dry or sticky ingredients like seeds, powders, and nut butters. Finally, top off with ice or frozen ingredients.

I cannot get the power pod to attach to the unit.
Place the pitcher on the counter with the handle facing to the right with the Ninja® logo on the power pod facing toward you. The indentation on the power pod below the Ninja® logo slides into the small ridges on the splash guard lid. Please make sure that the pod is flush to the splash guard lid, there should not be a gap between the power pod and the lid.
