    Ninja v. Vitamix

    Advertisements
    The online MCX has the Ninja on sale for $79.99 right now. The Vitamix is $399.99.

    Is the Vitamix really worth all that money? I want to make almond and coconut milk, so I need something strong. Will the Ninja do it?

    I love my vitamix. So worth it. The Ninja can do some things, but the vitamix does it better lol.

    DH and I talk about blenders a lot...you've basically just got the motor (power, and quality) and the blades that make the difference between working well and not. We were gifted a Ninja, and it impressed me with how it can chomp ice and make smoothies akin to jamba juice consistency. However, I don't have an expectations as for how long the motor will be able to do that. I think that's a big difference in blender prices...how long before it burns out. But just as a basic check, I'd for sure look to see if they are the same power motor, it's a starting point at least to see if you want to give the Ninja a try.

    For your purposes you'd be better off with a vitamix. The ninja is a good product but i think that's a little too intense for it. Also we sell both at my job and people always tell me how they've had a vitamix for like 20+ years and they're only buying new ones cause they like the way they look or they're buying them as gifts. The ninja doesn't have that kind of longevity.
