I LOVE the Ninja Pulse! My husband and I just started making lots of smoothies this summer and we have a regular blender we received as a wedding gift, but it would take a long time to blend up our smoothies and I would have to take the lid off, stir the contents and then re-blend several times before we had a well blended smoothie. Well, not with the Ninja Pulse! I literally put the ingredients in, and about 10- 15 seconds later it’s done! I didn’t even have to take the lid off! The only time I had trouble was when I used ALL frozen fruit and ice and it would not mix up well, but when I used fresh fruit (or even half frozen fruit, half fresh fruit) and ice it was fine!
I also tried out the cookie dough blade. I just mixed up a Betty Crocker cookie mix from a bag and it fit perfectly in my 40 ounce processor. Literally after about 10 seconds it was completely mixed and it was also a quieter mix which my daughter appreciated!
Lastly I wanted to try out making some homemade baby food. I threw some cooked carrots into the Ninja Pulse and it blended them up really well. I had to Pulse longer to make sure they were completely pureed, but I had expected that.
Once of the best attachments to me is the single-serve cups to make individual smoothies! You can blend these up in the same cup you will use to drink out of, just put the included lid on when you are done and you are good to go! And I also love that everything is dishwasher safe except the main motorized part!
The blades are very sharp! That is probably why the blender works so well. I would just caution you to be very careful with them. I cut my finger ever so slightly while taking the blade out of the pitcher for cleaning. Also, I put several of my spatulas into the pitcher with the blade still in the bowl to completely scrape our smoothie mix out, and they have gotten several slice marks in them, so just be concious of that.
There is a Ninja Kitchen System Pulse that includes a few different accessories than this Ninja Pulse, so just check out what you are actually looking at. It has a slicer/shredder attachment, but I have not tried that myself. Go HERE to view several different models of the Ninja!
