Ninja® MEGA Kitchen System Review
Reasons why you may not want to buy the new Ninja® MEGA Kitchen System.
After seeing the first infomercial for Ninja Kitchen System Limited Edition (1200 watts) i wanted on badly. So I went to every website i could in search of sincere reviews. Every website i went to had decent reviews but i still was not satisfied because i could tell the reviews were from people who did not know what an awesome blender was. So i left it alone and started looking at other brands of blenders only like Blendtec, Vitamix, and Omega and KitchenAid. I thought i’d wait for a good deal on one of those brands since we are getting closer to the Christmas holidays. While waiting, Mr. Ninja® MEGA Kitchen System (1500 watts) came along and after much debating i thought i’d go ahead and give it a try to satisfy my curiosity. Well, here is what i found out myself about Ninja® MEGA Kitchen System (1500 watts); most of it is just not pretty :-
1). The noise coming from Ninja® MEGA Kitchen System is very loud and annoying! The noise echoes because the base has this hallow sound when you knock it; so with 2 HP you can imagine the noise.
2). The center piece (blades) of the large jar is very shaky or wobbly and not firm.
3). You always have to remember to hold the center piece (blades) when you are pouring out your food or it will fall right out with a slight bend of the jar.
4). The way in which the blades are glued to the bottom of the jar is very sloppy and i feel like it can fall off anytime.
5). On 2 occasions i got this burning smell coming from the base.
6). Food gets stuck in the bottom outer corners of both jars and it WILL NEVER come off because of how cheap this is made. It looks very nasty i must say. I wish there was a way to post a pic on this review so you can see what i’m talking about.
7). The only thing that works well on this is the single serve, you will get a smoother texture than you will with the bigger jar. For a smoother texture with the large jar you will have to blend longer and its still not smooth but then again the noise will get to you.
8). This is the best you will get out of the food processor. Here i made some vegan pesto. I have definitely used better and cheaper.
9). Here i tried blending some coconut and it did a pretty good job given that i did not need the coconut to be very smooth. This is how messy the cover gets, so you definitely need to keep the cover on.
I think its obvious but i definitely will not recommend this to anyone. For those of you who fell in love with it, i’m happy you found something you love. So this puts me right back at square one – on the hunt for a good blender.
