- (1) 72 oz pitcher
- (1) 8 cup food processor
- (2) 16 oz cups with lids
- (1) 1500 watt base (works with all of the above)
- The single serve cups. These are perfect for making smoothies and you can drink right from the cup. We use these almost every day.
- The large capacity of the pitcher and food processor. You can make quite a bit of food in either of these containers.
- The food processor has two blade options. One is a typical, sharp blade and the other is a dull, plastic (non) blade that can be used for making dough. It's a nice option for breads, cookies and other baked goods.
- There are three settings and a pulse option for the pitcher and food processor. I've made delicate things like salsa with the pulse option and I've made creamy smooth soups with the highest setting. And everything in between.
- The lids on the single serve cups. They are the kind that you normally find on a coffee cup and are always a little open. If you take your beverage to go, you can't just throw it in your purse or backpack, you need to carry it and make sure not to tip it on it's side.
- The motor is very loud. Honestly, it's louder than some of my power tools.
- The food processor can't grind nuts into a fine powder or into a nut butter. The pitcher can, but it's such a deep container that you have to scrape down the sides a lot. Not the end of the world, but worth mentioning.
- The price. It's almost $200 at full retail. We had a coupon on top of the holiday sales at Target so we got it for $100, but that's still not cheap.
I'm a big fan of Ninja Kitchen products and I'm borderline obsessed with my Ninja Master Prep, but this Mega Kitchen System needs a little bit of improvement before I can obsess over it too. If the motor was a bit quieter and the blades in the food processor were more efficient at grinding hard ingredients into a fine powder, I'd be sold.
I do love the single serve cups and I've made a lot of delicious meals with all of the containers so I do think this is a good product; I just don't know if the price tag is justified. I suspect many see this as an affordable alternative to the more expensive systems like Vitamix, but you could get a lower end or refurbished Vitamix for not much more. I'm still a loyal Ninja Kitchen girl, but I think I'd be happy with some of the cheaper options.
