The Ninja BL660 is currently Amazon’s number one bestseller in the blender category, though it more than doubles up as a juicer making light work of all fruits and vegetables. It can also chop nuts, disintegrate ice, mix dough for baking and blend in minutes. With the 6 blade technology, it has more blades than a typical juicer while taking less time. Because of the placing of the blades the blender has no problem chopping, blending and juicing all the contents within the 72 ounce blender. For anyone that uses the metric system that’s over 2 litres worth of juice the Ninja BL660 can hold.
Juice Quality and yield
After testing with various fruits and vegetables the BL660 managed to juice all produce quickly and effortlessly, a slight problem to note is that it doesn’t extract pulp as efficiently as the Breville-JE98XL. If you want a very thin liquid then perhaps there are better options, however leave the BL660 on for a little longer and a thinner consistency can easily be achieved.
The yield produced from the Ninja professional blender was very impressive so if you want to prepare juice for the entire week the 72 ounce container will help you do that.
the BL660 is incredibly simple to clean, because of the single serve addition it doesn’t require taking apart, cleaning all parts individually 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!
Construction & Performance
with a giant 1100 Watt motor 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 powerful juicers available. It have no difficulty with chopping nuts, blending kale, even when full all the contents will be completely blended or juiced 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 of the blender will spill.
Its adaptability is superb, it can whip sauces, prepare dough 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.
Amazon ratings and reviews
Scoring 4.5 out of 5.0 stars over nearly 3000 reviews the Ninja Professional BL660 justifies its bestseller tag with the Amazon community. Customers love the option of having a large picture or two smaller cups to juice with. Users also praise the power of the 1100 Watt BL660 claiming the blades stay sharp for months, even years.
One ‘con’ some consumers note is how sharp the blades are and how they have the potential to be dangerous, but that’s quite a harsh negative to be fair.
In summary, with its easiness to clean, its powerful motor and its versatility to complete unrelated kitchen tasks the Ninja Professional BL660 is a must have addition to any kitchen, while its versatility to do many other tasks is a major plus.
