Battle of the Blenders

We have 3 blenders in our home.

No, we are not hoarders.

Rather, we make a lot of shakes/smoothies/green drinks and one needs a blender to do so!

Here's a quick synopsis of each of the 3 blenders we have. You'll see we have a clear favorite, but we'll try to give you enough info so you can make your own decision, you grown-up you :)

Ninja Master Prep

Cost: ~$75.00
Pros: blades come out for easy cleaning; comes with two sizes and a chopper; affordable
Cons: motor on top is very big/bulky; if you use large chunks of ice/fruit, it won't blend it all

Magic Bullet

Cost: ~$75 - $100.00
Pros: the container serves double-duty as your cup; blades are very small, thus easy to clean
Cons: can't do "big jobs" and can't mix anything fibrous (veggies) or sticky (peanut butter)

Vitamix Professional Series 750

Cost: ~$690
Pros: can blend anything, completely versatile; preset options take out guesswork, no worry about washing, has a cleaning function, huge container, comes with a 7 year warranty
Con: expensive

Can you spot our favorite? :)

We used the Ninja and Magic Bullet for YEARS before finally making the investment in a was worth the wait and worth every penny! This not only makes shakes, but icecream, soups, dips, homemade nut butter, dough, ANYTHING! 

As we said before, we require the services of a blender daily, but if you don't and therefore can't rationalize a Vitamix purchase, go with the Ninja.

Have you owned any of these blenders? What's your opinion??

In Health,

  1. I had the bullet and it was a waste of time with my protein shakes because it wouldn't mix everything and definitely wouldn't crush the ice. I now have a ninja and I'm just about ready to throw it out the window. Lol. I have to mix my berries, then stop and add my shakeology and mix then stop and add my ice. It takes me about 15 mins to make a shake. (but I have the smaller ninja) I can't afford the vitamix just yet so I think I'm going to try this ninja until I can. Back to the store... :))

    1. UGH! Hopefully the bigger Ninja will be better for you - it is what we used for a long time before the Vitamix!

  2. What i don't understood is actually how you're no longer really a lot more smartly-liked than
    you may be right now. You are very intelligent. You realize therefore significantly in terms of this matter, made me
    for my part imagine it from so many varied angles. Its like women and men aren't fascinated unless it is something to do with Lady gaga! Your own stuffs outstanding. Always take care of it up!
    Here is my web blog : follow that shell star coins

  3. I'm amazed, I have to admit. Seldom do I encounter a blog that's both equally educative and interesting, and without a doubt,
    you have hit the nail on the head. The issue is something not enough men and women are speaking intelligently about.
    Now i'm very happy that I found this during my search for something relating to this.
