Ninja Professional Blender BL660
Good: This machine is capable of crushing ice and just powerful for the price range. It also includes ready to go trendy containers. It is a versatile, two-in-one blender, the large size is able to handle quick or on the go recipes even in larger quantities while the single serve cups comes with to go lids if you are in a hurry and running out of time. This gadget is capable of crushing ice as well as handles frozen fruits and vegetables fairly well. Its 1100 watts of power is significantly greater than many affordable blenders. It's like getting the value of two blenders for the price of one.
Not so good: This blender has an unusual design and is not easy to set-up, to use or clean. Setting up and disassembling the 72 oz. container is a quite complicated task. The sharp blades can also cause user injury. The quality of blending is not that impressive, consistency of hard vegetables and green smoothies are chunky. Processing of ingredients might take longer than high-end blenders. This blender is not made for use of hot liquids or ingredients. The blade gets dull and becomes useless when used over time. It may not fit under your countertop if you have limited kitchen space due to its relatively tall size when assembled. This machine is very noisy as expected of 1100 watt motor especially when crushing ice.
