Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

We thought that the 40-Watt motor of the Ninja QB1004 would not be able to give the power to the blades. But were we surprised! The motor is located on the top, unlike with traditional blenders and food processors, wherein the motor is located in the base. Top placement of the motor moves the curved, multi-layered blades very efficiently. The motor operates with 160 Hz electrical power and on 120V.
The stacked blades and powerful motor can chop ice to a fine slush and it can blend even the toughest ingredients. It also comes with the chopping bowl and a food processor bowl for added versatility.
One great feature on this appliance is that you can remove the blades and scoop out all the contents so you don’t waste anything.
It is easy to assemble and disassemble.
Lids for storing in the fridge.
We observed the blender to be amazingly calm. When we tried the Ninja QB1004 alongside different blenders, it was one of the calmest.
It’s easy to operate. It’s a breeze to clean because the parts are dishwasher safe.
Your Ninja Master Prep Professional includes a 48 oz (or 6 cups) blending pitcher that can crush ice into a soft snow-like powder in less than 30 seconds! You can make incredible frozen fruit smoothies, a tasty margarita, or even a homemade vegetable juice!

What reviewers didn't like

We noticed fruits and vegetables had to be cut smaller than usual to get them into the containers.
The one main downside, besides being down on power, is the lack of different speeds. There is only one speed so getting the right consistency might be difficult with a variety of ingredients. It also feels a bit cheap and we suspect will not hold up as well as the more expensive models.
Too tall to fit under cupboards
Parts are difficult to clean.
The button must be held down continually on if you need to keep the blades pivoting.
Because this blender and its working parts are primarily made out of plastic you can get wear and tear of some moving parts.
