Best Uses
Crushing Ice
The Ninja BL base model blends, and chops pretty much as advertised. It however does not last. I have gone through 3 of them using them as advertised, to chop ice, blend smothies, etc. The first one was replace at no cost to me. The company wanted me to pay $40 for replacing the other two. My assessment is it works, but is of poor quality. If you don't mind buying a new one every year , then it is not bad.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Most people think of Ninja from the informercials which shows an overgrown Magic Bullet. The NJ600 is not that. It's a powerful blender that's great for making frozen drinks, smoothies, milkshakes, and even soft ice cream using frozen fruit and cream. It's great for pureeing soups and sauces as well. It can whip cream in about five seconds. Should have bought one ages ago!
How long have you owned it:
One-to-three months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
