Your Questions Answered

Q: How loud is the blender?

A: We have an old Vitamix and I would say the noise level is about the same. I have never owned a quiet blender.

Q: When you add ice, do you use full-size ice cubes? Just wondering if the Ninja can handle that.

A: Yes it can absolutely handled full size cubes.

Q: Do you have to hold the jar down when you are blending? I know with the NutriBullet you don’t have to.

A: You do not have to hold it down with the IQ Model.

Q: how many cups and what sizes does this product come with?

A: It comes with 4 cups…3 different sizes. Largest is 24 ounces. Large enough for 2 -3 servings.

Q: How does the blade hold up on this unit? I know the NutriBullet had some complaints about the blade wearing out.

A: We researched the blades on both units. The Ninja has a much better shaped blade that looks like it will wear well for a much longer time. We haven’t had it very long, but are finding it to be a strong blade, and does a very good job at chopping, including crushing ice. We would recommend the Ninja.

Pros: Great smoothies Can handle everything food related
Cons: It's LOUD
