The Costco Ninja Blender Review

Blenders are one of the most versatile kitchen gadgets, they can do anything from making your smoothies to making your bread dough.

Seriously, it may sound crazy, but it’s true. Next time you are making a bread dough or your favorite waffle or pancake mix try it in a blender, you will not be disappointed.


Last year alone, 24.3 million blenders were sold. Which is about 1.25% of the world population, blenders are not unnoticed as far as numbers show. 

Fun fact, the electric blender was created in 1922. The first electric blender was considered top of the line at the time and so does this item. Recently we checked out some blenders and came to terms with the fact that the Costco Ninja Blender was one of the best by far. In response, we decided to do the obvious and write a review on our four favorite, Ninja blenders.

The 4 Best

#1 Choice - Ninja Mega Kitchen System

When in need of a high powered blender that is large enough for the job, you should stick with the Ninja Mega Kitchen System.

The base of this blending system is 1500 watts and is powered by 2+ HP motors, these make for a high powered blending experience at a luxury level. This system comes with a 72 oz.

Total Crushing Pulverizing Pitcher, this is excellent for blending even the roughest and toughest of foods or ice into a smooth creamy consistency. 

This package also features an 8 cup (64 oz) food processor that is capable of mixing up to 2 lbs of cookie dough in just about 30 seconds… now you can’t tell me that isn’t cool! If that doesn’t make this appealing to you then maybe the two 16 oz Nutri Ninja cups with to-go lids that are awesome for making multi-serving smoothies and milkshakes.

A great feature of this package is BPA free and dishwasher safe, so you won’t have an awfully harmful chemical in your plastic as well as being able to save time washing it. If you aren’t already sold, which I totally am, this blending system comes with a 30 recipe book.

Ninja Professional Blender with Nutri Ninja Cups

Ninja has the Professional blending system with an 1100 watt base and a 3 speed motor.

The 3-speed motor features pulse and other single-serve functions, perfect for blending up your favorite margarita mix.

Much like the Mega Kitchen System by Ninja this package includes a 72 oz. Total Crushing Pulverizing Pitcher, 64 oz. maximum liquid capacity.

Again with this package being much like the aforementioned Mega Kitchen System, this features two 16 oz. Nutri Ninja cups with to go lids.

All of the pieces to this blending system other than the base are dishwasher safe, all of the plastic is BPA free.

Small and easy for storage, it is about 10 lbs. And has a shipping weight of 14.2 lbs. 

Nutri Ninja Auto iQ Blender

BPA free is the way to go if you are looking to rid of those awful chemicals in your plastic that can actually cause pretty bad health problems, each of the pieces to this iQ Blender are made of BPA free plastic.

This package comes with a 24 oz. Tritan Nutri Ninja cup, made specifically for those quick protein shakes or salsas.

 Ninja comes through again with an 18 oz.

Tritan Nutri Ninja cup with sip and seal lid, so you can finally take your smoothies out the door with you!

For a sleek look this product is a nice black plastic, it is also relatively small making it absolutely easy to store away in a cabinet.

This high powered, small blender is powered with 2 iQ programs.

Nutri Ninja Pro Blender; Silver

Yet another awesome featured item by Ninja is the Nutri Ninja made for up to 3 cups of your favorite, juice, smoothie, milkshake or protein shake.

If you’re feeling a bit warm and want something refreshing out by the pool this is a great way to make a margarita! Maybe you are too full or not in need of much, if so go ahead and switch the 24 oz. cup out for the 18 oz cup.

Ninja is really good about using BPA plastic, all while having really attractive products.

This specific blender is silver and comes with two Nutri Ninja cups one being an 18 oz with a sip and seal lid and the other being a 24 oz cup with pro extraction blades.

And, if you are looking for new recipes this blender comes with 75! 


Why should I choose a Ninja Blender?

Ninja is a precision oriented company owned by Shark. Each of their food processors and blenders are made with exceptional care and quality, for example, the BPA free plastic they use and the sturdy Total Crushing pulverizing blades.

What is BPA?

BPA is a harmful chemical found and used in many plastics around the world. BPA can imitate our hormones and completely stop the production, transport and release of our natural hormones. Pretty weird, right? 

What size Ninja Blender should I get?

Picking the right size Ninja Blender can be easy, if you let it, it all comes down to what is most practical for you. If you are going to use your blender for something like condiments and smoothies, it is probably best to go for one of the small blenders, such as the Nutri Ninja Auto iQ Blender. If you are someone who likes to make large batches of salsa or likes to make bread dough/cookie dough in the blender, then we highly recommend one of the larger like the Mega Blending system or the Professional Blending system.
