By: Jaden Thu, 19 Feb 2015 11:35:55 +0000 I you only want juicing, then you should buy a juicer – we love the masticating “slow juicers” especially the Hurom brand.

By: Jackie Bourg Wed, 18 Feb 2015 11:21:01 +0000 I just bought the NINJA in Canada on sale for $199. I wanted this only for juicing. BIG DECEPTION… very grainy/sandy texture after blending for 10 mins … My other concern is that too much blending might damage the quality of my juice.

I hope the store will give me a refund and will have to pay $800 + 15% tax and transportation.

I very much appreciated the diverse items you processed in each of the two blenders.
I do think you should mention each companies warranties as I believe that is a big part of the cost of ownership.
Here in Canada the Ninja only has one year whereas the Vitamix has 5 years or greater
dependent on the model.
I settled on a Hamilton Beach model with a five year warranty and as I am a senior on
a fixed income I will take those five years to put aside money for the Vitamix…which I have used at my niece’s….awsome blender.
Thanks for your review

I have the same crappy Ninja from Costco. My sister’s fault, not mine, for buying it for our condo/shared second home. HOW DARE ANYONE COMPARE THE NINJA TO THE VITAMIX!!! It’s pure crap! Do you want a smoothie, or a chunky? Cuz that’s what you’ll get. Like you said, it will never, ever blend anything to a smooth puree, like the Vitamix does so effortlessly. I haven’t even read or watched the actual review, yet, just started getting the vibe, glanced at your comment and got so agitated, I had to reply. Trying to decide which used Vitamix to buy on EBay now.

By: MARY VENTURA Thu, 06 Nov 2014 16:55:17 +0000 I have used the Vitamix for 5 years daily then it finally broke.
I purchased the Ninja from Costco and I noticed a big difference.
I make fruit and kale smoothies every morning and the Vitamix blends the smoothies well.
The Ninja makes the smoothie airy and doesn’t grind up all the kale.
I really think the Vitamix is a superior blender.
Vitamix is more expensive but worth every penny!

By: Mikki Thu, 07 Aug 2014 19:06:03 +0000 What a great review!!
I don’t know how I have never seen your site before but I’m definitely going to be a new follower!! AND you’re a FLORIDIAN!! Double points for that one! LOL!

Still not sure if I can spend the money on a Vitamix yet, though I’m looking at the Ninja system because I need a food processor and thought their one system that has a food processor attachment would be worth checking out!

Have an awesome day!
Happy cooking!

By: Larry Molter Thu, 03 Jul 2014 02:07:43 +0000 I am staying at a guest retreat on Maui and a woman guest arrives with her Vitamix in a backpack. She carried in the plane from California. She never travels without it. She made us kale smoothies and I was sold. Immediately bought a factory reconditioned model for $329. It’ll be there when I return. Cant wait.

By: christina Fri, 27 Jun 2014 20:26:44 +0000 I have the Ninja Professional, it is 1000 watts and just over a year old. The lid is all plastic and broke, but I was able to order a replacement lid for under $20 and now it is working just fine. Really considering investing in the Vitamix though. Not sure how much longer the Ninja will last- the pitcher is starting to come apart, but I suppose I could replace that too.
