THIS POST NOW HAS A GIVEAWAY!! Is the Nutri Ninja with Auto iQ Worth the Price? 10 Reasons I Say Yes!

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.

THIS POST, THANKS TO THE GENEROSITY OF THE SPONSOR, HAS BEEN REVISED TO ADD A GIVEAWAY! 1 winner gets to take one of these bad boys home! US entrants only.

Today I've got the million dollar question: Is the Nutri-Ninja worth the amount of money they charge for a blender?? Everyone who has ever had any Ninja Kitchens product swears by it, and many times they refuse to be happy with any other brand of kitchen appliance again. With that kind of powerful testimony going on behind the scenes, I definitely wanted to investigate for myself. 

So...is it worth it? In a word, 'yes!'

The Nutri Ninja with Auto iQ is worth every penny you'll pay for it.
It is truly a 'blender' that is an investment (for your kitchen and for your good health).

Why? I'll give you ten reasons. I could give you a hundred (honestly!)
but I'll stick with ten for the sake of time.

1500 watts powerful! The Nutri Ninja makes light work of frozen items and whole fruits and vegetables.
#1. The Nutri Ninja is 1500 watts powerful! This blender makes blending, pulsing and crushing even the strongest of products an absolute breeze. You can put whole fruits in there even, and it works like a charm. No more ice chunks that won't budge either, Nutri Ninja makes light work of even those. 

Add frozen or fresh foods, or do like we did and make a mix of the two.
#2. The Nutri Ninja with Auto iQ is good for your health. Encourage healthy eating as you whip up delicious smoothies in no time flat that are filled with fruits, veggies, seeds and more. Your kids won't even know you've put Kale in there if you add delicious berries and fruits. Or they'll be amazed that the like it (if you do tell them). ;) 

The options for what you can make are as endless as are ingredients!
#3 Variety is the spice of life. Everyone in the house like smoothies, but not the same kind of smoothies? With the Nutri Ninja individual cups, everyone can have their own smoothie blended in no time flat. My daugther-in-law likes things like flax seed, Kale, and fruits and veggies in hers. 

Individual Cups Make it Easy to Make and Take Your Drinks on the Go!

My son (her husband) likes those too, but when he's on his way to a workout, he wants to add protein powder. So, on the days they're having smoothies together as a family, they can use the 40 oz. blend and prep bowl to make a large batch for everyone. But on the days when they're going their separate ways, she can make her fruit smootie in a Nutri Ninja cup, and he can make his Protein Powder smoothie in another. One of the glasses included is heavy duty stainless steel, so it keeps drinks cold up to 4 hours.

Generously Sized Cups Come With...Including One that is Stainless Steel
The cups are generously sized too, dishwasher safe, and they have a seal-tight lid to make them easy to take on the go. Making individual smooties is a breeze with this system: simply add your ingredients, flip the cup upside down and choose which smart button you want to push to finish up your drink.

You're Going to Love the Auto-iQ Technology!
#4. The Nutri Ninja with Auto IQ blends, pulses, and offers pausing patterns. That means the one-touch buttons know exactly what it is you want to do, and with a few seconds and a push of the right button, they're going to do it. The directions are written clearly on each button too, and an extensive book of directions/instructions and suggestions is included as well. They call it Auto iQ Technology.

Auto iQ Technology means one-touch intelligence, or programs designed specifically for each jar attachment. These intelligent programs combine unique, timed pulsing, blending and pausing patterns that do the work for you! Get great results every time with no guesswork required!

Whip up Great Drink Recipes for the Holidays!
#5. You can use it to whip up amazing drinks, perfect for the upcoming holidays. The Crushed Peppermint Frozen Frappe pictured in the recipe book above makes me happy!

Or Whip Up Great Recipes for Any Day of the Week!
#6. You can make more than just drinks. Yes, it makes the perfect drink for you, whatever you like. Milkshakes, smoothies, cocktails, you name it. But it also whips up a great puree, allows you to make a garden fresh salsa, or any other of a great variety of recipes that you might think up. And speaking of recipes, the blender comes with a handy book full of great suggestions to make in your new blender!

It's a Great Looking Appliance!
#7. It's pretty. Really. My son and his wife have this displayed on their counter, and it just looks nice! The black and stainless steel make it a sure match for most any decor, and the size is just right for even smaller kitchens.

BPA-Free & it Goes in the Dishwasher Too!

#8. It's BPA-free and dishwasher safe. Two things everyone is looking for today. Ninja Kitchen is a master at creating items with the environment in mind, that also allow the ultimate in convenience for the consumer.

Nutritious Drinks, garnished with or without a real strawberry.
I don't recommend eating the fake strawberry. ;)

#9. Extraction! The professional grade blending allows for vitamin and nutrient extraction. That means you can toss whole fruits in there, and get the nutrients and vitamins from them, that you might not be able to get in other blenders. 


#10 The smooth boost technology allows you to make thicker, fluffier drinks, if that's what you're in the mood for... Take a look at the video above to learn more about Smooth Boost, and the other great blender features.

And a bonus...one my daughter-in-law really wanted to note: The design of this blender makes it very easy to clean!

So there you have...I'll stop at ten reasons (and a bonus), for why I think this appliance is absolutely worth the price. If you are in the market for a blender, or looking to get someone special a great holiday gift, I definitely would consider the Nutri Ninja Combo with Auto iQ first. It is truly a blending experience.

You can learn more about this device by visiting the Ninja Kitchens website. You can also follow them on Facebook and/or Twitter.

What would you make first in your new Nutri Ninja Combo with Auto iQ?

I love my Ninja!! Seriously, you can do so much stuff with it. I like to make soups and tomato sauce.

Terri Beavers said...

I saw this blender on your Twitter account and just had to come and check it out. That is one pretty blender for sure. I'd use the fool out of it I'm sure. I'd make pancakes and soups, pudding and sorbet. Salad dressing and my family favorite chocolate icing. I'd make Lattes DAILY, lol... Yep, I'd use the fool out of it and I'm sure you will as well.

Amanda Simkin said...

We make a ton of smoothies so I'll definitley have to look into this once our magic bullet poops out. Thanks for sharing.

Stacie @ Divine Lifestyle said...

It sounds like it's totally worth the price. We have a blender that's on its last leg. This seems like a device that's everything we use and then some.

Masshole Mommy said...

I have been wanting one of these for ages. I am so jealous :)

Pat Hatt said...

My body would argue against the variety one, but the rest work haha

A Budget-Friendly Life Tina said...

Ninjas are the best! I love mine! Now this one I would definitely be interested in trying! We love making smoothies with ours but we do not have the separate cups. They would be super convenient.

Jeanette said...

I have always wanted one of these! Now I have 10 more reasons to want it! I am going to ask for one for christmas.

Cascia Talbert said...

I love my Ninja too. This one looks pretty cool. I like how you can make one single serving. Have a great weekend.

Diana Elizabeth said...

OK this looks like it does everything that I can get rid of 3 of my other blender products. Sold!

I have a Ninja and it makes a world of difference!!! I love making smoothies with it.

Elizabeth O. said...

I've seen this around online and I think it's awesome! I love smoothies especially when there's yogurt and fruit involved.

Christina Bhattacharya said...

I have a regular Ninja and I love it. I can only imagine how powerful this product is. I love that it can make smoothies just as easily as my regular Ninja. Thanks for sharing.

Liz Mays said...

Ooh we'd get a ton of use out of one of these! I hear nothing but good things about them.

Lois Alter Mark said...

Now, that looks like a must-have! This would be a perfect holiday gift!

Melinda Dunne said...

I have several Ninja products and love every single one. They have all been worth the money. I will have to check out this product I don't have it yet.

I like to make smoothies so this would be great to have. It would be great for a holiday gift!

Maureen said...

What a great kitchen tool to have. I would love to have it for my smoothies and soups.

Nicky Omohundro said...

I have always heard great things about the Ninja. If you want to eat healthy smoothies and other foods, this would make easy work of it.

Theresa Mahoney said...

Ninja products simply are the best. My best friend is actually buying this for her daughters (age 10 and 13) for Christmas this year because they want a good blender for smoothie making. Weird to get kids kitchen appliances, but it's what they asked for!

Deal Match Maker said...

I love Ninja brand.. Their machine is very strong and has a very sharp blade

Victoria Heckstall said...

Ninja is the best. I always make smoothie this is one of my daily routine

I've always heard amazing things about Ninjas! A bit out of my price range but when I'm able to I plan to buy one for my kitchen. I think we will get so much use out of it! - Jeanine

Mama to 5 said...

Sounds like a wonderful kitchen gadget to have to make all sort of wonderful healthy recipes! I bet it makes great smoothies!

Holy Ghost Writer said...

They are very well made

Jessica said...

This is what I need! It may be on the higher end of my budget, but the Ninja brand has a great reputation and I know it would do the job. Definitely worth the investment to add this tool to our family's diet.

The Binder Ladies said...

You sold me! I love that it has pausing patterns - that's really unique and very needed when I make stuff in a blender!

Rebecca Bryant said...

I have a ninja but not this updated version but i love it. I may have to upgrade soon as I am loving this one a lot

Sandee said...

The best reason...easy to clean. That's not always the case.

Have a fabulous day. ☺

Chrystal Mahan said...

My cousin recently purchased a Ninja and she raves about it all the time. I make smoothies quite often, but so far, I am happy with the model I have.

Prime Beauty said...

I need to make this investment.

Joyce Lansky said...

I have one of these and enjoy it.

Chubskulit Rose said...

I would love to have one! You are one lucky gal!

Boulder Locavore said...

I have used a Vitamix for the past few years and love it. I've heard great things about the Ninja and love the in-the-cup option. Their cookbook looks great too!

Erin Shebish said...

Welp, looks like I need one of these now! Maybe it'll just end up on my Christmas list ;)

Norah said...

I have the Ninja 1000. It is time for upgrade me thinks :)

Cheap Is The *New* Classy said...

I have been wanting to get some new high quality blenders. Ninja is definitely the brand we have been looking into.

alissa apel said...

I like a larger blender. I have an older ninja. The only problems is that it really only works for 2 people. Whenever I make things it's for 3 adults, which = 2 adults + 2 kids. I've had problems with mine getting stuck on the thing, so it doesn't want to turn off on it's own. I do love smoothies.

Amanda || Growing Up Madison said...

Ninja makes really great products so I knew that this would be no less. Anything easy to clean definitely gets a 10 in my book.

Lynndee said...

Once I need me a new blender, it's definitely going to be a Ninja. Love all those features. So neat!

Ricci said...

I have been wanting a Nutri Ninja for so long and this just makes me want one even more!! Great post and I will figure out a way to get one soon!!

Ourfamilyworld said...

Oh wow, I have always wanted a Ninja. This one looks really cool. I hope I get this on Christmas.

Jennifer (Double Duty Mommy) said...

SO worth the price. We have one and my husband absolutely loves it.

Liz Mays said...

It's really a workhorse, isn't it? I love everything it can do, and it's on my list of must haves!

Christy Garrett said...

I would love to have something like this so that I can make smoothies. The one I have is okay but I can't make more than one smoothie at a time.

Stephanie Pass said...

I love how it has more blades than a regular food processor. That should make it so much better, I think.

amotherworld said...

Ooh how cool, I need this in my kitchen! It can do so much than a regular food processor.

María José Ovalle said...

It's on my christmas list!

Chasing Joy said...

I have a different ninja blender. Mine came witht a small food processing cup. I am very happy with it.

HilLesha O'Nan said...

Even though I currently use a Vitamix, I have always been a bit curious about this brand. It sounds quite promising!

Ann B said...

The Nutri Ninja is an amazing machine. My Sister has one and she makes all kinds of great recipes with it. I am hoping to get one for Christmas.

Ashleigh Walls said...

We are looking to upgrade our Ninja. I will have to tell my boyfriend about this one!

Ughhhh I have been wanting a Ninja forever!!! I keep hearing how amazing they are. Maybe Santa will bring me one this year ;-)

Heather Lawrence said...

Love my ninja!! I agree that the price is a little hefty but it's so worth it!

Terra Heck said...

I have to agree, it's very well worth the price. I have one and use it at work. We make smoothies a couple times a week.

Corina Ramos said...

I have got to get me one of these!

Andrina Goetz said...

I learned that it breaks down EVERYthing for consumption! The whole fruit or vegetable, all the seeds and nuts, and even the ice - nothing to get stuck. And no wasted nutrients. Yay!

Sandy Cain said...

I need this for my mom. She is so old, and doesn't eat right, and I know her health is declinging because of it. This way I'd be able to get all the live, fresh food into her! All the vitamins and other nutrients she's missing.
