This is undoubtedly the most effective and powerful blender we have ever owned. However, I would never buy it again. The noise emanating from the motor and the relatively thin plastic blending container create so much noise, it is on the verge of auditory damage. I seriously suspect the noise from this appliance puts it on the verge of an OSHA violation.
How long have you owned it:
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

I was excited with a new purchase of the Ninja blender. After using it for the first time, I tried to put it on the countertop underneath the cabinets and it would not fit. Trying an alternative, I tried to store with the lid off ( just barely making the clearance), but the suction cups were so powerful, I couldn't get it out from under the area. I did not want to store with the smoothie cup as standard, so very disappointed, I had to return it to store. My home has standard height upper cabinets from the countertop.
