Mincing Very Fine
Comment:
This is a very powerful piece of equipment; however, it might be too powerful. It doesn't have any switches, buttons, etc. to control the pulse except for pressing on the motor head, so one pulse is exactly the same as the next. The motor burnt out in less than a year, but the company is replacing it one time for $0.00. The blades are easy to take in and out, but are very, very sharp so be careful. It's cumbersome - having to get all three out to do different tasks because it basically does the same thing to everything you put in it, so I usually use just one of the containers. I received this as a gift and I would not purchase the Master Prep Pro for either myself or anyone else.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

The smoothie test

Pros
Easy To Clean
Good Pitcher

Cons
Best Uses
Crushing Ice
Drinks
Comment:
I use this blender mainly for smoothies, and almost every day. It has very good power for crushing ice and most fruits and vegetables however the real test is these fruits and vegetables that are tough to completely smooth and always leave some small but noticeable evidence behind like unpeeled apples, carrots, small seeds (like Pear seeds) etc. I find that this is where this Ninja kind of reaches its limit and smoothies with these ingredients are less smooth than what I would want. I would give this blender 4.5 stars if possible because most of the time it does what it needs to do and more and because of its very reasonable price.
