I have had the Ninja for just over a week and absolutely love it...!!! I use it mostly for smoothies, but my daughter has become accustomed to having slushies. It chops the ice into little slivers in just 3 pulses for slushies and smoothies take less than 30 seconds with whole frozen fruit. I seen some complaints about cleaning, but I think it is so incredibly easy to clean as the blades come right out and if you rinse after use, it's a cinch. I can't say enough good about this little machine, it is by far one of the best purchases I have made.

I bought this item because of the rating from consumer reports. I am very disappointed with the review and cannot understand how this rating would apply.
