The Ninja Blender BL610\u2019s main selling feature is it\u2019s amazing price. But there are things they had to sacrifice in order to achieve this. A manual pulse feature is one, and the one year limited warranty doesn\u2019t really bode well with us either. In our review, Ninja came out on top, but check out the best blender list to see how other blenders stack up against it.\r\n\r\n\r\nWhy We Like It - Ninja Bl610 Professional Blender\r\nThe BL610 Blender will shock anyone at how affordable and feature-packed it is. At $80.00, it will come in at the price range that most people will consider fair. It boasts power that far outclasses any other blender in an $80.00 price range, and has features that you just won\u2019t find as well.\r\n\r\nPerformance\r\nThe Ninja BL610 Blender has almost instant crushing ice technology to make frozen drinks or treats in a jiffy. It can blend regular fruits or frozen fruits to make smoothies, or even vegetables to make green smoothies. It comes with a powerful and robust 1000 watt motor that takes it a few steps above other similarly priced blenders. If you want an even more powerful motor, check out the Oster Versa Pro Blender which has 1,200 watts of power. The Ninja does have a pulse feature, but unfortunately it has a manual pulse instead of an auto-pulse.\r\nDesign\r\nThe Ninja Blender boasts a large, 72-ounce blender jar that\u2019s perfect for entertaining or making yourself a couple of drinks on a warm summer night. The Blendtec Total Classic Original Blender has a 75 ounce jar if you desperately need that extra 3 ounces. With this blender, Ninja has included a handy food processor that can knead dough or nuts and spices fast. It\u2019s not as noisy as most professional blenders, which is nice, but it is heavier and a lot longer and those with low hanging or small cupboards might find it difficult to store.\r\nValue\r\nThe Ninja Professional Blender is BPA free, which is always a nice touch even if it is industry standard now, and the countertop blender also comes with a one year warranty. It\u2019s dishwasher safe and if you do lose or break a part, the locking lid for example, you can always buy one of the many replacements available. The blender also comes in at an affordable price range: only $80.00. At a slightly higher price you can get the Nutribullet NBR-1201 if you are going to use your blender mainly for making smoothies.\r\nNinja Bl610 Professional Blender Wrap Up\r\nAny Ninja BL610 review would mention the Ninja\u2019s incredible price. I\u2019ve done it many times during this review. But be wary that a price like this does come with some setbacks. They aren\u2019t huge ones, though, so if you can get past them we would recommend the Ninja BL610 for your blending needs.
