I had a ninja for years, but the motor finally died on me so it was time for an upgrade. I was skeptical but try it. I can honestly say I’m so happy I came across it. It’s so powerful! This thing pulverizes anything you put in there leaving behind creamy goodness. It also crushes ice like a champ. For the price you won’t find a better deal. It’s made with fantastic and strong materials, and the easy to understand buttons that make it a breeze to operate. I couldn’t be more pleased with this purchase.
