Ninja Mega Kitchen System BL770 Hybrid Blender
A hybrid blender/mixer, the Ninja Mega Kitchen System does twice the work in a fraction of the time.
I want to begin this article by stating that I am not a big fan of most Ninja blenders, but that I have been quite pleased with the speed, power, and abilities of this machine. I do not currently own this particular blender, but will admit that I am thinking of purchasing one in the future. My sister-in-law bought one a few months ago and shattered all my Ninja-related doubts as she showed me just how well it works.
In this article, we will look at the various functions of this hybrid blender as well as its various specifications. I will explain the best ways you can use this machine. I will also point out any shortcomings I have found through my research. My hope is to bring you as much unbiased information as possible, based on research and personal experience, so that you can decide if this is the right blender for you. As always, I will remind you to base any purchasing decisions on your own personal needs and wants. The best blender in the world may not be the best blender for you and may not work within your personal budget. As you read on, consider these things.
Can Handle It All
This blender’s incredibly strong, 1500-watt motor is the top of the line when it comes to blenders and mixers. In fact, I’ve yet to see a blender with a higher motor wattage. My reviews and research are not yet complete, so I may come across one at some point, but I believe that 1500 watts is the upper threshold.
What does this mean? This means approximately 2 horsepower of strength and endurance will be driving this machine through each and every task you assign it. It’s a good thing, too, because this blender makes some rather large promises. Luckily, it appears to be able to uphold its promises thanks, in part, to this very powerful motor. Consumer reviews and my own experiences with this blender/mixer combo have been quite positive.
Aside from typical beverage blending, this machine is also capable of completing a slew of other tasks. It can crush ice into tiny bits resembling snow particles within a matter of moments. Frozen fruits can be broken down into sorbets and other frozen desserts without the aid of liquids – a difficult task for most blenders.
Running this system’s powerful 1500-watt motor for extended periods of time should cause little concern. The Ninja Mega System can easily create nut butters over the course of a few minutes without running the risk of overheating.
Additionally, switch out the blending pitcher for the mixing bowl and replace the blending blade with the mixing blade to create bread, pizza, pasta or cookie dough in under thirty seconds. I understand that I am starting to sound like a commercial. In fact, if you have watched Ninja’s commercials for this piece, you may notice that I have actually said some similar things. This is because I have found that most of their claims are actually quite accurate.
During a recent visit to my sister-in-law’s house, I was able to bear witness to the abilities of this machine and just how quickly it could work. Within the course of ten minutes, she whipped up pita dough and a batch of hummus for our evening snack. Also within that ten minutes, she spun us a couple of fruit smoothies to tide us over while we waited for the pita dough to cook. While sipping her smoothie, she gave the components a quick rinse and began preparing cookie dough for the evening’s desert. The next day, working at home with my blender, hand mixer, and various bowls strewn around my kitchen, I saw the true benefit this machine would be to me.
Comes With All You Need
This system includes a 1500-watt power base, a 72-ounce large-capacity blending pitcher, an 8-cup blending bowl, and two 16-ounce personal single-serve blending cups with sealable travel lids.
Unlike some other hybrid blenders that require you to purchase each attachment separately, most of what you need is already included with this blender. There shouldn’t be anything else you require for blending or mixing – it’s all there. However, if you decide to, you can purchase extra 16-ounce blending cups from Ninja’s own website so that you can supply travel beverages to more members of your family.
Overall, despite my many doubts about Ninja products, the Mega Kitchen System impresses me greatly. If you are in search of an appliance which takes on the double duty of blending and mixing, you have certainly found it. Not only does it feature many abilities and settings, it also includes a 1500-watt motor powerful enough to actually achieve those tasks without overheating or breaking down.
However, if you cannot see yourself using this combination blender to the fullest of its abilities and are simply looking for something which will blend beverages, you may want to look at a personal or countertop blender instead.
