I called the folks at Ninja and their only solution was to sell me a new lid and blade for 34.00. I can get the whole thing brand new for about $50. I understand the warranty is only good for a year through Amazon, but they show lifetime warranty on their site. Catch is you have to buy it directly from Ninja or they won't honor it. This will be my first and last Ninja product.
This blender is amazing. I've been using this unit for over 3 months now. Which may not seem like a long time. But it is when you're using it almost daily. This bad boy can handle any challenge I throw it's way. Carrots, sweet potatoes, bananas, cheese, avocado, tofu, kale, broccoli, berries, ice etc, etc. I could go on and on. It can puree just about everything to a smooth consistency. Raw or cooked, hot or cold. Yes, this machine works extremely well for hot food. I remove my food from the steamer and immediately start blending in the Ninja.
In the beginning I would add formula to help the puree blend to a smoother, thinner consistency. But now I blend food without adding any liquid. Doing it this way will take a little bit longer to blend, but you will still get the same results. The only things I found is that I need to remove the blade and use a spatula to give the food a good mix, then push the blade back in and finish blending.
WHAT I LOVE:
•All three containers blend food evenly. The blades rotate the food around the container when blending. But if I'm blending a large amount of thick food (potatoes), I will stir the food once by hand.
•This setup comes with 3 different sized containers to blend in. One small-2 cup container, One medium-5 cup container & one large-6 cup container.
•Each blending container has it's own blade. Both the small and medium containers have 2 tiers of blades. The large container has a three tier blade. I find myself using the largest container most often. Mainly because I make food in large batches.
•The smallest container is perfect for whipping up single size servings. I can even blend just one avocado. The blades won't just push the avocado to the sides like it does in a food processor.
•The medium and large container has a pouring spout that makes adding liquid to the pitcher a breeze when I'm blending. No need to remove the lid. I simply lift the flap covering the spout and pour the liquid into the pitcher.
•This Ninja is SO easy to use. There literally is only one button that you can press. I place the blade into the pitcher, pour my food in, snap the lid on, attach the motor on top of the pitcher (the motor will only fit on one way, so it's easy to know if it's properly attached) and press the button.
•You don't have to "pulse" blend your food like other reviewers have stated. I hold the button down for long stretches of time and have never had an issue with this.
•Each container has non-skid rubber on the bottom.
•Two of the three containers have easy pour spouts. And handles. This is nice for filling my freezer trays up with baby food.
•Pretty easy to clean. I love how the blades are removable. It so much easier to clean than a traditional blender. Obviously, you have to clean the blades with care. Those bad boys are crazy sharp. They will tear up your washcloth, fingers and dish brush if you're not careful.
•No leaks when mixing. Even if I have the pitcher filler to the top. Which brings me to the next thing I love..
•You can pack these pitchers full of food and the food will still blend as nicely as it would being half full.
WHAT I DON'T LOVE:
•This blender will NOT puree berries to a completely smooth consistency. Meaning, it will not crush the seeds. No matter how much you blend or how much liquid you add, the texture will be grainy. BUT pretty much every blender outside of a Blendtec or Vitamix will have this issue.
•Only two of the containers have storage lids. I wish each container had it's own lid.
•Even with the non-skid rubber on the bottom, this blender moves while blending. It will make it's way across my counter when I'm blending.
•The pitchers are made of plastic. I would love if there was a glass option.
•The mixing lids are hard to clean because there are so many nooks and crannies.
Overall, for the price you cannot get any better than this Ninja Master Prep Professional. It's perfect for making baby food. I'm very happy and would highly recommend.
I stuck with it thinking that it was just cosmetic, but over the next few weeks it started to web up the sides.
Now it's past the return period, and it is cracked completely up the sides and now leaks out of the bottom a bit. So, the old ninjas lasted 3 years, this one didn't make it 2 months. Bummer.
+Three different sized containers. Each has its own blade attachment. The two largest containers share a top and an adapter for the motor, which sits above the container and its blades.
+The blades come right out. No turn to the left and then pull out secret handshake nonsense. Just pull them out. That might not sound like a big deal to right now, but it will be when you want to move quickly from prep to serving, particularly when it comes to protecting the blades and serving utensils from each other. It's also pretty slick when using the larger blender to make beverages.
+Crazy sharp blades. They will puree anything you'd put in it.
+Can't put your hand in the container while it's running. Due to the nature of the motor and housing,this is impossible. On the flip side, you can't really add things as it blends either. But for all you parents out there with curious children, this feels like a plus. Especially after number two was crazy sharp blades that would puree everything.
-The motor is above the blades, which makes this a little confusing to use, especially for the first time. It sits in an adapter-style base that requires it to be inserted in one specific way, but doesn't really highlight with color or arrows what that way is on the base or motor. Which is kind of confusing. My girlfriend tried to use it and couldn't figure it out without some help, and I still have moments when I have to really stop and look at what I'm doing.
-You have to pulse by hand. which is a minor inconvenience, I know, but a pulse setting would have been cool. Or a setting of any sort. The Ninja pretty much has off, 100 percent, and the half a second it takes for it to reach 100 percent as speed settings. Which can render some general vegetables into vegetable puree way faster than you think.
-No shredding, grating or slicing attachments, which isn't surprising. Those are typically attachments that require you to feed them the item as they turn. This really doesn't have the means for you to pull that off, due again to the nature of the motor and the housing being above the blades, leaving very little room for access to the contents of the container as it works.
= It also doesn't do heat, but this isn't in the price range for a blender/food processor that will do that.
= Surprisingly light. Like you'll find yourself picking it up and thinking...whoa...this is surprisingly light.
Ultimately, this is a good low-priced entry into the world of not chopping your own food, and making delicious sauces and condiments that will probably enrich your life beyond the normal, sad, depressing, one note of grey that is your life.
