Do you own a Nutra-Ninja blender?

Hello:
Many thanks for your previous replies very useful.
Do you own the blender above mention?I read so many positive
reviews and I wonder,what else can you do other than smoothies?
As always your replies are very much appreciated.araucano.

Go with the Vitamix. You can do a lot more with it.
And made in USA.

I don't have one, I too have a Vitamix but if I were trying one out I would be tempted to start with a Ninja to save the bucks. If you are going to use it for everything imaginable then do invest in the Vitamix. I make soups, sauces, smoothies, almond butter..... even chopped meat in my vitamix.

True, the soups are really good and actually get very hot in the Vitamix. It is a bit loud, but works really well. Great for cold season RVing.

Thumbs up Vitamix for sure

Daughter has a magic bullet, and it's pretty much just for small smoothies. I have the vitamix and highly recommend it. Have had the same one for 12+ years with no problems. Can make ice cream with frozen fruit and it just takes seconds so the loudness doesnt last long. Soups take more time so the longer running time contributes to the loudness. If you belong to costco, they often sell these, and at less than I paid at a home show!

Forgot

The vitamix has a 7 year warranty. (Also easily makes frozen adult beverages if one is so inclined)

I have both the Vita Mix and the Ninja Duo.....
I prefer the Ninja for smoothies and fruit drinks. They come out MUCH smoother.

I don't do anything else with either one.....

We too have a Ninja for mostly smoothies. Works well and is not too loud.
DW wants to upgrade but I am resisting. Nothing wrong with the one we have.
Sounds just like the W/D conversation we had 10 years ago! LOL.

I have the 1400 Watt Oster Versa Performance Blender. It costs about 1/5th the price of the VitaMix and Blendtec blenders, but it makes hot soup and smoothies the same.

I'm using it every morning to prepare my bulletproof coffee.

To keep it short and sweet, you really can’t beat a Vitamix. Both the 5200 and 7500 models are absolutely perfect for smoothies.

A few others that come to mind are the Blendtec Designer Series 725 and the cleanblend 1800 watts

Honestly, you can’t really go wrong with any of these. LOL!

Here is a good reference that discusses the best blender in the market recently: The best 3 blenders for smoothies

We have the ninja and use it for smoothies, ice cream, Humus, various spread and salsas, frozen drinks and lots more.
Much cheaper than the vitamix.

I have a Ninja and a Vitamix. I use the Ninja 10x more often, since it is small and easy to deal with. I mostly use it for things like crushed ice, smoothies, chopping nuts for baking, etc. If you won't be using it often, a Ninja is a great "bang for the buck." Small investment but a quality item.
