Ninja Products

I got a coupon for Ninja Blender products and was wondering
A) if they’re worth it
B ) which product has the most favourable reviews.

I’m wondering if it’s worth it to spend a bit more and get the all-in-one kit that has the blender and processor (I currently have a Cuisine Art blender, no processor) or if the blender does a good enough job to process, or if the processor is good enough for smoothies.

Thoughts? Opinions? I’m open!

**edited so B ) wasn’t B)

    You could look various products up on amazon to see the reviews(4 stars or 5stars) you could also look up products on youtube to see how they work and how you might like to use them/ I do not have any experience with the Ninja products- but just thought I would give MHO

    I have a generic single-serve ninja-type blender (Cooks is the brand, I paid $30 for it new 15 years ago) and I use it all the time. If you don't have one I'd say buy it! I like the small one, it stays on the counter unobtrusively and then I have a full size blender and food processor in the cabinet. I use the small one daily, the one in the cabinet rarely comes out.

    I have a smaller Ninja Grill, Insta Pot, and an XL Convection Air Fryer Oven (it's in my car's trunk waiting for Christmas). Love all the products so far! Hoping to get the grill off my counter after I get the oven upstairs.

    We have a Ninja Bullet-style blender and coffee maker. I like both, they function very well, and haven't had major issues with either. The blender is very loud and isn't necessarily easy to clean. The coffee maker has some known issues with the water reservoir seal causing it to leak infrequently, and seems like the cleaning light comes on constantly; it makes really good coffee though. Not looking to replace either anytime soon.

    Sorry to disappoint... I’m sure there’s a cooler Ninja thread somewhere else

    Thanks for your input all! I don’t drink coffee and my partner makes his with a Chemex so no worry about making a choice on that front. The good news is, I found the one I want! The bad news is it’s out of stock. 😑

    But for those that have Ninja products it sounds like their longevity is good which is encouraging in a world of 5-year appliances.

    It really depends on one simple question:

    - Will you use it?

    The reason why i mentioned this is because my dad bough the Ninja Professional System, but all he uses it for is to blend seasoning, so it was 160 bucks thrown in the garbage when a small food chopper would have done the trick.

    I bought a $29 walmart food processor and just the slicing function was enough to pay for it 10x over.
    So it really depends on the main question... - Will you use it?

    I have the Ninja blender/food processor and I really like it. I use it mainly for smoothies but occasionally for food processing. I'd say it makes a better blender than food processor, but if you don't do food processing that often, I think it works to save storage space by only having one device.

    Well...the one I wanted, that is a processor and blender in one (you switch the blades not the canister so it saves space) was back in stock AND on sale. It arrived yesterday and this is my breakfast today. I think I’m going to have fun!
