What experts liked
This blender is powerful and versatile at the same time thanks to the 10 Auto-IQ settings

This blender's pitcher is one of the easier to clean by hand, having a relatively roomy pitcher
- Tech Gear Lab
Very versatile from pre-programed settings to manual and pulse modes.

Ice Crush performance was very good.
- Consumer Reports
You will be very pleased with this blender’s user interface. For each setting and option that you pick, the screen changes and the dial serves a different purpose depending on what modes and settings you choose. This eliminates the possibility of being confused with several different buttons.
- Blender Reviews US
Comes with a stick wand to help push ingredients down.
- Happy Happy Vegan
It features all the automatic settings that similar high-end models of this brand have, and its variable speed controls allow for further manipulation.
- Wiki EZ Vid
The Ninja Chef 1500-Watt High-Speed Blender CT805 comes with a large, 72-ounce blending container with a maximum cold liquids capacity of 64 ounces (the maximum hot liquids capacity is 36 ounces). What's more, the container is free from Bisphenol-A, or BPA.
- Heal With Food
The Chef’s pitcher has blades at the bottom instead of those stacked blades. Not only does that eliminate the problem of having sharp detachable blades to deal with, it also creates a better, more thorough blend. With the blades at the bottom of the pitcher, you get a vortex that pulls all of the ingredients down through the blades.
- Riz Knows
What experts didn't like
Some complaints about quality control issues.

However, there isn't a ton of ventilation around the bottom of the pitcher if you put it back on the base and could very easily mold, so we would recommend drying it on a towel or dish rack.
- Tech Gear Lab
Very tall, like too tall to fit on the counter under the upper cabinets tall.

Blender is loud.
- Blender Reviews US
Knob is overly sensitive and changes settings if touched accidentally
- Happy Happy Vegan
Despite being quite a technologically-advanced blender in many ways, the Ninja Chef CT805 does not use vacuum technology unlike some competing blenders such as the Tribest Dynapro or the Kuvings SV-500-S Blender.
- Heal With Food
My biggest gripe with the Chef is that (like all of Ninja’s blenders) the drive system is made with plastic. That means it’s going to wear a lot faster than a Vitamix or a Blendtec, which are made with metal. It also means you get that overworked plastic smell after just 30 seconds of blending.
