I’ve heard great things about this hand-cranked version that clamps down on your table. If you grind a lot of grains, and are ready for a splurge, this Blendtec grain mill is amazing. We’ve tested it before and loved it, but it’s pricey.

Is that like talking to yourself? I just wanted to note that I have never tried kale/broccoli in my Ninja blender, as I haven’t gotten into the green smoothies just yet, though i want to try sometime soon. So i don’t know if it would blend it into cream or not. But personally I don’t mind if there were some minute particles as long as it was smooth/blended well together. I hear the Vitamex can make everything like cream soup without a particle if you have a husband who does NOT care for broccoli bits, not one little bit 😉 PS: if i’m not allowed to mention store names, ie. Wallsmart, plz feel free to remove the store names from my previous comment (^ ^)d

I hear you can use a cheepo coffee grinder to do the trick? Any feedback?

From experience I found the Ninja is a fantastic smoothie blender/food processor, hands down and the price is hard to believe. My husband and I have been trying to decide if we want to upgrade to the Ninja that can blend cookie dough (can it do bread dough??).

I’ve been very pleased with my Ninja Master Prep QB900B 30 set that cost me $34 something plus tax at Walmart. Yes. I did say, “$34 something.” It’s been treating me surprisingly well and I use it a TON because I’m a ranch cook for 12-16 guys. It came as a set of two with a 120 volt motor/pulser. One a 16oz food processor? and the other a 48oz blender. The blender will plow through frozen fruit/ice no problem. Maybe not as 3 second slick as the $600 fancy blenders? I dunno, but I’m pleased with it. After a few pulses i have a creamy smoothy and I don’t even have to put in liquid like i did with my old fashioned blender.

I haven’t tried to grind up flour with the little processor as of yet ;). The Processor isn’t as large as I’d like for such a gang but it’s so incredibly easy to dump the food out and start the next batch, i have no complaints. We would LOVE to buy the Vitamex, no question, however, can’t really justify fitting that into the budget for a loooong while. It sure would be sweet to have my blender HEAT things up! Crazy wonderfulness!! I wonder how the Ninja would do on mixing bread flour? Cookie dough?? I like that they have a nice sized bowl attachment for that. It’s hard for me to imagine doing all that with my blender!? All they need is a heating version…. guess it would be best to use glass than plastic for that. Though the plastic is very light and unit is easy to store for those who like RVing/tiny home movement. However; my dream, of course, would to be to buy the Vitamix 750 soMMMeday :) Wish it had a cookie dough/bread dough bowl attachment? The more one thing can do the better for those interested in building a tiny home, namely, US! ~n

Ninja blenders are cheap because the materials themselves are cheap.

Id suggest shelling out a little more for the quality.

How would you rate the Oster Versa vs Ninja Ultima?
The small glasses do make the ninja attractive though.
