Ninja Professional Blender BL660

The Ninja BL660 is currently Amazon’s number one bestseller in the electric blender category, it wins points for versatility. It’s an ice crusher blender that can chop nuts, mix dough for baking and juicing in seconds.

With the 6 blade technology, it has more blades than an average blender and takes less time because of that. Because of the placing of the blades the blender has no problem chopping and blending all the contents within the 72 ounce blender. For anyone that uses the metric system that’s over 2 L you can fit in the Ninja BL660.

The BL660 is an easy to clean blender, because it is single serve it doesn’t require taking apart, cleaning all the different parts and then putting them all back together. Simply detach the lid from the container, take the container out of the engine base of the BL660 and wash them by hand, or even pop them in the dishwasher!

A giant 1100 Watt motor means the Ninja Professional Blender BL660 is no slouch when it comes to being efficient. Compared with the 900 Watt of the Nutribullet it’s one of the more high powered blenders available. It have no difficulty with chopping nuts, blending kale, even when full all the contents will be completely blended within a minute. With four suction feet below the blender there is no chance of the blender flying off the counter top and with a well fitted lid you don’t need to hold it down like ones from years ago, there’s no chance the contents will spill.
Its adaptability is superb, it can whip sauces, prepared dough when Kate mixtures, chop nuts, even ice and grind coffee, it does much more than blend! Don’t worry about anything getting stuck in the blades, for one they are they are too sharp and two the way the blades are positioned means it’s never happened to me. It’s very cleverly designed.

Vitamix 1363 CIA Professional Series

Coming in 4 separate colors, the vitamix 1363 professional series is a simple looking not too expensive blender with 2 switches and a dial to change speed on the interface. In the category of high end blenders the design makes the 1363 look fairly understated, when you turn it on, that all changes.

A large blender with a 64 ounce container, the 1363 will produce just under 2 liters worth of liquid, and I do mean liquid, it’s one of the most powerful blender available, this machine can be lethal. With a 2-peak horsepower motor blades can reach speeds of 240mph, this means whatever the solid is, it won’t be solid for long. It is an ice blender and can chop, blend, cream, whip, grind and churn such is the 1363’s flexibility.

The blades, cut by lasers for precision sharpness are made from 3 inch sharp stainless steel. This means all the contents will be blended consistently in the bottom top and the sides of the 64oz container.

Best Blender | Personal Blender Reviews – Which Blender Should You Buy?

The Vitamix 1363 CIA Professional Series is pretty much its own dishwasher, just squirt some dish soap and water into the blender and run it for less than a minute! Lastly, it’s ergonomic design is proven by the spill-proof vented lid so ingredients can be added while blending, a smart feature!

Trusted by professional chefs and major restaurants to create a variety of fresh, flavorful dishes from solid ingredients – and currently available at a great price on amazon, perhaps making it the best cheap blender for under 100.Best Blender | Top Rated Blender Reviews

We placed almonds in the Vitamix 1363 and let it blend on full power for 30 seconds, we then added a small amount of butter and turned it back on a slightly lower setting, it yielded excellent quality smooth almond butter. Considering this took less than a minute it proves the power and efficiency of the juicer blender. It was easy to clean and ready to make a banana, strawberry and lime smoothie!

If you needed any more convincing whether the Vitamix 1363 CIA justified its price the reviews will confirm its ability. It has a superb 4.8 stars from 5, with an even more impressive 86% of the 490 reviews giving the full 5/5.

One quote from a reviewer states ‘ It’s an excellent vegetable blender, even the ones that often don’t want to completely liquefy in other blenders, like the skins of tomatoes. You can toss in whole garlic cloves, peel and all, and it renders them into a smooth paste with no lumps or bits of skin to get in the way. There are a couple of reviews that claim it’s too big a blender but you can’t please everyone, after all it’s not a hand blender.
