Ninja Mega Kitchen System 1500 Review

Ninja Mega Kitchen 1500

The Ninja Mega Kitchen System 1500, by Euro-Pro Operating LLC, is marketed as the most complete and affordable professional high speed blender, available for under $300.  Let’s see if it lives up to the hype .

We bought our Ninja Mega System at Target on a whim when we saw it on sale.  This is by far most powerful blender we have ever used, since it functions as the four most widely used kitchen appliances in one package.

This powerful high speed blender packs a whopping 1500 Watts, a powerful 2 Horse Power motor, and spins up to 24,000 RPM.  This is a far comparison to most traditional blenders that spin at about 8,000 RPM.

After spending some time putting our Ninja Mega Kitchen through it’s paces, I am writing this fair and unbiased review of the Ninja Mega Kitchen System to share with you the benefits and drawbacks, the good and the not so good of this popular high speed blender.

 

Let’s get into my review of the Ninja Mega Kitchen System.

Unique Safety Features

 

The Ninja Mega has some unique built-in safety features designed for your protection and to protect your blender from damage to give you years of use and enjoyment.

» The Ninja blender base has 4 suction cups on the bottom of the base that must be locked down or your Ninja blender will not turn on.   The suction cups keep the base from moving on the counter when the Ninja blender is turned on.

» Pushing the lever down to the locked symbol secures the base to any surface, and pushing the lever up to the unlock symbol releases the suction and you can move the blender.
» The 72 oz pitcher and 64 oz Bowl have a locking mechanism on the lid that must be pushed down and secured into the handle or the blender will not turn on.

 

» Once you unlock the lid by pushing the button on top of the lid, the motor turns off.  This prevents the ingredients from splashing out, and to prevent injury to you or damage to the machine.

 

» You can stop the motor by either hitting the power button on the base, or by pressing lock/unlock button on the lid.  Pressing the power button on the base brings the blender to a gradual stop, while pressing the stop button releases the locking mechanism on the lid, and the blender comes to an immediate stop.

 

 

 

Enjoy Healthy Juicing in Seconds flat!

 

 

The Ninja Mega Kitchen System high speed blender, available at Amazon.com, packs 1500 Watts, and spins at up to 24,000 RPM compared to a regular blender that only spins at 8,000 rotations per minute,  to completely emulsify, blend and extract the flesh, skin, seeds, pit and stems of the fruit and vegetables.

Now you can create truly healthy and nutritious fruit and vegetable drinks and smoothies for you and your family to enjoy in about 15-10 seconds, since the motor spins at 24,000 RPM to release the hidden vitamins and nutrients that are locked in the seeds, pits and stem.

Just fill the single serve cup with your natural and healthy ingredients, then screw on the lid.  Place the cup in the Ninga Mega 1500 base and quick turn to lock it in.  Then turn it on and press the Single Serve button on the right end, with the picture of the cup with a straw.  This pulses the mixture for about 5 seconds.  Due to the 24,000 RPM motor, you only need to pulse it about 1 -2 times and you’re done.  It’s that easy.
Every morning my wife makes a healthy shake to take to work.  She puts the powder, fruit, ice and milk in the glass, screws on the lid and puts it in the base.  I timed it one morning, and the shake was done mixing in about 7 seconds.

This nutritious shake cost pennies compared to the same size drink at one of those juice bars that costs $3-$4 each.

 

 

Makes Fresh Ice Cream

 

Why spend money on an expensive ice cream maker that can’t do anything else, when your Ninja Mega Kitchen System 1500 is the only high performance blender on the market that also makes fresh, delicious and healthy ice cream, without the artificial flavors, colors and unhealthy ingredients found in store bought ice cream, such as partially hydrogenated oils, processed sugar, high fructose corn syrup, carbohydrates and high levels of fat,

Once you taste fresh home-made ice cream made with natural ingredients and fresh fruit in your Ninja Blender, you will never want to eat store bought ice cream ever again! 

 

Make Dough in Seconds

 

Making bread or pizza dough with the Ninja Blender takes just seconds.  Just use the 64 oz mixing bowl and dough hook, which comes standard with the Ninja Mega Kitchen System, to make up to 2 Lbs of fresh bread dough, pizza dough, crepe and pancake batter or even cookie dough in seconds.

Makes Delicious Frozen Beverages

Are you tired of spending $4 dollars or more for a smoothie or frappe?  Now you can make healthy and nutritious smoothies or frappes in seconds at home for a fraction of the price of those drinks from local coffee or juice bar.  You can also make delicious adult beverages, including margaritas.

 

The Ninja Mega is also a Food Processor

Why clutter your kitchen counter or cabinet with a bulky and heavy food processor?  The Ninja Mega Kitchen System is not just a blender, it is also a food processor that rivals the capabilities of those expensive and bulky machines.

 

This Machine is So Easy to Clean

 

The 6 blade and 4 blade assemblies can be removed from the mixing bowls for easy and safe cleaning, which is important since the blade assemblies are very sharp.  The 64 Oz mixing bowl, 72 Oz pitcher, and blades are dishwasher safe, and should be washed on the top rack only.

This is a distinct advantage over other the Vitamix, which has fixed blades in the bowl or pitcher, that can’t be removed and can make cleaning difficult.

No Need for a Tamper

 

Using a tamper can be annoying when mixing ingredients.  With many other blenders, including the Vitamix, you often have to use a tamper to push ingredients down so they can be fully mixed.  This is due to the blade configuration, and the sharpness of the blades.

A tamper is not needed with this Ninja Professional Blender, since the patented cyclonic mixing action forces the ingredients down into the blades to completely chop, mix or pulverize the ingredients in seconds.

You can actually watch the ingredients being sucked down towards the blades as it mixes.

 

 

What are the Cons of the Ninja Mega Kitchen System?

 

There are a few negatives of the Ninja Mega System I have experienced:

 

  • The Ninja Mega Kitchen System is a little bit loud.
  • It can blend ingredients for soup, but can’t heat soup in the pitcher.

 

 

Ninja Blender vs Vitamix

 

When comparing the Ninja Blender vs Vitamix, you are looking for the best high speed blender, and the Ninja Mega Kitchen System and Vitamix share the spotlight as the best high speed blenders on the market.

The Ninja Mega Kitchen System 1500 available here, was designed to compete with the popular Vitamix 5200.

The blades on the Vitamix are not as sharp as on the Ninja blender, so you need a tamper to push the ingredients down to be blended.  The patented cyclonic mixing action of the  Ninja Mega 1500 act as a vortex and actually forces the ingredients down into blades for fast and easy blending, mixing, emulsifying and processing without the need for a tamper.

We looked to Consumer Reports as the best impartial authority that compared both blenders in a series of head-to-head tests.

Except for the Vitamix being able to heat the ingredients into soup right in the pitcher, which is a convenience feature of the Vitamix, both blenders performed equally well on all criteria in the Consumer Reports test, and the Ninja Mega Kitchen System is a better value at $200 or less, vs $400 to $500 for the Vitamix.

 

What is the Warranty?

 

The Ninja Mega Kitchen System comes with a standard one year warranty from the date of purchase against defects in manufacturing or parts.  You can read the Ninja Blender Warranty here.

 

Where Can You Buy the Ninja Mega Kitchen System

 

You can buy the Ninja Mega Kitchen System at many brick and mortar and online stores, yet our research found the best every day price is at Amazon.com.  You can also get free shipping when you order here.
