When it comes to whipping up smoothies, or shakes, you need a blender that can handle it, and that is not just any blender – you need one specifically designed for such. What that means is you need a blender made with what it takes to make a perfect smoothie, and that includes having the right blades, good cups to hold it, and the perfect mechanism to make it work. So what you have at the end of the day is a compact blender that can make smoothies within seconds. While there are several options to choose from, the main contention among many is NutriBullet vs Ninja.
Blenders like these are a must-have, and are quite popular, even among those who are not fans of smoothies. That’s because, besides smoothies and juices, you can use them to blend or mix other things, including sauces. Little wonders there are so many in the market today, and a trip to the store might have you confused. Despite this fact, there are still those brands which have managed to build a reputation, and stand out. We are talking about the Nutri Ninja, and the NutriBullet brands.
These two brands, have over the years, amassed a reputable name, because of their excellent blenders. This has made them a favorite among so many people, and, as expected, the constant subject of comparison. See these brands deliver nothing but quality, and people who use them have almost nothing to complain about, still, there is the need to find out who is King, so to speak.
In our comparison today, we would be placing the products side-by-side, highlighting their features, and strengths, to help you decide the one to pick when next you go blender shopping.
Both the NutriBullet and the Nutri Ninja are quite compact and are meant to save on space, regardless of the one you pick, although the Nutri Ninja also has bigger blenders that out of range of the kind of blenders in focus. They are both easy to handle, and lightweight, and so they are quite flexible. The NutriBullet, however, comes with bigger cups than the Ninja blenders, especially models like the NutriBullet Pro, and the Nutri Ninja 900, placing them side by side. The NutriBullet holds more content than its Nutri Ninja counterpart.
The technology which the blenders operate with is also quite distinct, offering something for separate users.
In the NutriBullet, we get what the manufacturers call ‘Nutrition Extraction’. What you get from this is that everything put into the blender gets broken down into the smallest possible bits. That’s right. Seeds, skins, and other parts of fruit get disintegrated into small bits that can be easily swallowed and enjoyed. Nothing goes to waste. This is because it is thought that every part of a fruit or vegetable contains nutrients, and getting the vitamins out of it is very important.
The Nutri Ninja blenders offer something else, what they refer to as ‘Auto-IQ’, and some of the models feature the technology. What the Auto-IQ does is to monitor what you are blending, and making sure it comes out perfectly, in the right consistency, so you do not get something that is too solid, with chunks of fruits and vegetables, or too liquid, making the whole essence of the smoothie lost. The blender delivers the right stuff for you, without paying attention to you.
The NutriBullet and the Nutri Ninja deliver top overall performance, delivering smoothies within seconds. However, the Nutri Ninja packs more power and can make a smoothie in less than 10 seconds. Neat. Also the Nutri Ninja makes smoother smoothies, because of its powerful blades, and is great at crushing nuts and ice, something you cannot do very well with a NutriBullet blender, something you cannot blame it for, since you do not expect this from your average blender, still that gives the Nutri Ninja its edge.
Both the NutriBullet and the Nutri Ninja offer lots of models, designed to suit various needs, plus the manufacturers do not compromise on these models, and so deliver quality, irrespective of the exact type you pick. The NutriBullet offers models with lots of pieces, so you can take care of a lot of things at once, with different cups meant to serve different purposes, like the NutriBullet 12 piece blender. The Nutri Ninja has made its mark, however, by offering different models that offer more power, thus better blend consistency, like the Ninja Mega Professional System.
NutriBullet blenders are more pocket-friendly, with cheaper models for you to pick from, but the same cannot be said for the Ninja series. This doesn’t, however, mean you have to rob a bank to own one, as they can be quite cheap, but not just as what you would get from the NutriBullet.
So there it is a very brief comparison of these two great products that have taking smoothie blending to greater heights. The final decision is for you to make, ultimately, as you weigh each strength and features, before reaching an appropriate decision.
