Ninja Blender Question and Answer Guide 2019

Due to the many different Ninja blenders and accessories we created this ever growing Ninja Question and Answer Guide. (Updated 2019)

Please leave your question in the comment section below if you have a question that isn’t already answered below.
Ninja Blender Question Answer Guide

SIDE NOTE – If you have a question about a specific Ninja blender model then visit our HUGE guide to finding the best Ninja blender which is continually updated. In that guide we review every single Ninja blender on the market. Please leave specific blender model questions in the comment section of that post.


The list of Ninja questions is getting long so I added a Table of Contents below. Click on a specific question to be taken to it or continue scrolling down to read through all the questions.

How does Ninja compare to Nutribullet ?

Both Ninja and Nutribullet make similar looking personal blenders which are commonly referred to as “Bullet” blenders because of their shape.

In general, both are good but we have a preference for Nutribullet blenders. Visit our detailed Ninja vs Nutribullet comparison for more specifics.

Who sells Ninja Blenders ?

Ninja sells some of their models directly through their own website and through infomercials. The also sell through a lot of retailers. In fact, it can be very confusing when comparing Ninja blender models because Ninja will make specific model #’s for each big retailer.

Typically Ninja blenders are exactly the same among the different retailers but the model #’s are different because they make a slight change in accessories so that each retailer is the exclusive seller of that exact model.

Typically we prefer buying through Amazon because the price is competitive and Amazon now directly sells many of the bestselling Ninja blender models (Meaning that Amazon cut a deal with Ninja to sell directly). Also, when buying on Amazon you can get inexpensive extended warranties for appliances.

Where to Buy Ninja Blenders ?

As mentioned in the question above, Ninja blenders are widely available but Amazon has the largest selection of models. If you are trying to research a specific Ninja model # that you saw at a retailer then check out our Ninja blender comparison guide which lists every model and explains the differences.

Which Ninja Blender is Best ?

We have a huge Best Ninja Blender buyer guide that is continually updated and reviews every Ninja blender to help you decide on which Ninja blender to buy (At the top of that article is a table listing our top choices).

If you have questions that aren’t answered in that post to feel free to leave a comment and we will answer them.

Which Ninja Blender is Best for Juicing ?

Ninja blenders are NOT juicers. Juicing means you remove all pulp and leave only juice. You can sort of use a blender as a juicer by pureeing the ingredients and then pouring that through a fine mesh sieve to get the juice.

Keep in mind that a high horsepower blender will typically create a finer blend for straining out the juice compared to a low cost blender. It also really depends on the ingredients you blend to determine how finely it blends.

Consumers can often get confused about Ninja juicers because Ninja markets their products as creating “complete juicing” which simply means it is the entire fruit or vegetable with the pulp (which is not juicing).

See related articles: juicer blender combo review and Juicing vs Blending comparison.

Which Ninja Blender is Best for Smoothies ?

All of the Ninja models with the total extraction blade(which work with the Nutri Ninja personal size cups) work well for smoothies. If you want a full-size blender then two good Ninja blender for smoothies are BL660 (Low price) & BL642 (Mid Price)

What is the Newest Ninja blender ?

Ninja has so many different models that they introduce and discontinue and the models will differ among the retailers that sell them. We continually update our Ninja comparison guide with the new models.

Can I use Hot Liquids in Ninja Blenders ?

We wouldn’t suggest using hot liquid in Ninja blenders. Definitely don’t use them in the Nutri Ninja cups because they can build up pressure from the heat and cause harm when opened.

Ninja does say you can use some warm liquids in some of the large blender pitcher but read the instructions for the specific model you choose. Ninja won’t turn cold liquids into hot just from blending like Vitamix blenders do.

What is Nutri Ninja ?

Nutri Ninja is just a marketing term for their personal blender blade and cups.

Is a Ninja blender the same as a Food Processor ?

Yes and No. Ninja makes blenders but they have added food processor components to those blenders. Ninja has a lot of models and different blades and pitchers and some of their blenders will work as food processors.

For blending/pureeing ingredients, Ninja has the “total crushing blade” and “Nutri Ninja extraction blade”. You can chop or dice with those blades by pulsing the blender but they can be limited in their food processing capabilities.

For food processing, you can get one of the Ninja blender models that comes with separate food processing blades and bowls for added food prep capability. The food processing bowls and containers will have a wide bottom with special blades that work better for food processing. Whereas a blending blade is designed to pull the ingredients down into a vortex for pureeing. The Ninja Master Prep series are popular, affordable option if you want a small food processor that also blends.

Are Ninja Blenders Dishwasher Safe ?

Yes, you can put the containers into the dishwasher but we prefer to rinse with some warm soapy water right after using for longevity rather than put them in the dishwasher.

How to Clean a Ninja Blender ?

As mentioned above, Ninja blender parts are dishwasher safe but we prefer to rinse with warm soapy water. You can blend or pulse with the soapy water in it for quick cleaning.

Why is Ninja Blender Power Light Blinking ?

The Ninja power light will blink if you don’t have the pitcher and lid on securely. Ninja has this as a programmed safety feature. Also, if you are using Ninja Auto IQ or pre-set programs then make sure you are using the proper container for that program.

What is Ninja warranty on their blenders ?

Ninja typically has 1 year warranty on all their blenders. We suggest getting an inexpensive extended appliance warranty like this one since blenders overall have more potential for breaking versus other kitchen appliances. You can read warranty details on their website. Read more about our thoughts on Ninja blender warranties in our Ninja FAQ section.

Can Ninja cups go in the freezer ?

Yes the Ninja jars and lids are freezer-safe.

Can Ninja Blender make nut butter ?

Yes. Ninja blenders can make nut butters. The Ninja Mega blender is a good choice for making nut butters. The only downside with Ninja blenders is no tampers which are really useful for certain tasks like making nut butter.

If you plan on making a lot of nut butters then Vitamix is worth considering because they excel at that task. Also, the brand new Ninja Chef might be worth considering because it has a tamper and even a nut butter program setting.

Can Ninja blender crush ice ?

It depends on which model you have. Full size models can crush ice especially the models that come with the total crushing blade. The single serve models with Nutri Ninja cups are not designed for crushing ice but they can do so with liquid added.

How to Open Ninja Blender ?

Some Ninja models have a locking lid to prevent the sharp Ninja total crushing blade from falling out when you pour. Just follow the instructions in your manual. The locking lids just have a push button and you line up the arrows to lock in the lid.

How to Sharpen Ninja blender blades ?

We would generally suggest not sharpening your blender blades as you can potentially void the warranty or cause injury. Typically if a blade is not serrated then you can use a standard knife sharpening rod like this one.

Do Ninja blenders leak?

Typically no but if you overfill the pitcher or jar past the recommended levels then you risk the chance of leaking or spilling.

Do Ninja blenders have an exact fill line ?

Yes, there are line markings on the 40oz bowl & 48oz pitcher to indicate the amount of ingredients that can be placed in the bowl or cups. Also there is a max fill line on the single serve cups.

Are Ninja blenders noisy ?

Yes, Ninja blenders can be noisy but they are typical for the market. There are certain blenders that are created for generating less noise but Ninja does not make any specific models for that need.

If noise is a serious concern then check out our quiet blender review for specific models.

Can I grind nuts, seeds, or coffee beans with Ninja blenders ?

Yes. Ideally the single serve Nutri Ninja cups are great for grinding but the full-size pitchers work fine too.

Can I make flour with Ninja blenders ?

Yes.

Are Ninja blender attachments interchangeable ?

NO. Many of the attachments are not interchangeable. Make sure you understand the exact accessories you are getting with the model that you choose. For example, the dough blade, cookie dough paddle, and slicer/shredder attachment will only work with 40-oz processor bowl.

This is one of the biggest issues with Ninja blenders is the lack of uniform accessories across blender models especially since they frequently introduce and eliminate blender models from the market. You can reference their support section of their website if you are trying to get a specific accessory.

I bought a Ninja Power kitchen 1100 a few years ago but did not take it out of the box until about 2 years ago. it has the tall 72 oz and 48 oz pitchers. the blender never worked. so I bought the Ninja 1000 BL610 model. can I use the pitcher from the first blender with the Ninja 1000?

    Anna Powell

    Hi, I would assume no as Ninja does continually change their design which makes it difficult for past models accessories to be compatible with newer models. I am not completely sure though so I would ask Ninja about that. Support # is 866-826-6941

Hi! I have a ninja professional blender 1500 for past three years! Since yesterday i am only able to use my single serve option as the other buttons are not working and there is a constant green light on the single serve option! Please help!

Reply
    Anna Powell

    Hi, I am not sure. Try unplugging and replugging in to potentially reset it. It sounds like the power light is working and typically people only have issues with the red light blinking(meaning the container isn’t on the base correctly or the lid isn’t clicked down securely) Did something happen to your pitcher that caused the blender base to not recognize it suddenly ? Try contacting Ninja 866-826-6941 for your issue as I don’t have an answer.

My single serve cup leaks some when on the blender base. Is the gasket supposed to be replaced when this happens? I am NOT overfilling it and it sprays out a bit and leaks down the sides when I set it back straight up.

Reply
    Anna Powell

    Hi Joy, Does it leak at the edges of the cup or underneath blade where the blade spins ? If it leaks at the edges of the cup and the gasket isn’t broken then the leaks are either caused by not tightening the cup enough or overfilling. If it leaks through the bottom of the blade then replace it as it is defective.

Hi Anna,
I just bought an Ninja Auto-iQ blender, model# BL490. I used the Smooth Boost w/Blend to make a smoothie. Then I tried to use the Smooth Boost w/Extract to make a juice but it didn’t work. All I got was the Extract indicator light blinks and the timer shows two dashes. All of the other buttons work except for this one.

    Hi Gary, Each preprogram is designed specifically for the jar attached to the base. Certain programs will only work when certain jars are attached. If the program light does not illuminate when the jar is attached, that program will not run and you will get an “- – ” message on the display.

Hi, is there an attachment for the Nutri Ninja with Auto-IQ that can be bought for blending hot liquids?

Reply
    Anna Powell

    The answer is yes and no. None of the standard “Bullet” upside cups where you screw the cup on the blade are for hot liquids simply because the pressure builds up inside the cups from the heat and can cause safety issues. You can only do hot liquids in jars that have a venting lid for the heat/pressure to escape. Technically the only jar I know of for Nutri Ninja Auto IQ with a removable lid is the 48oz multi serve jar. You could technically let heat out manually while blending to do hot liquids. Here is the jar or call Ninja customer support directly to confirm. 866-826-6941

My Ninja BL680REF started to smell like burning rubber and making a strange sound so I turned it off and turned it around to look at the back. My hubby uses it mostly and he had not been wiping it off properly and/or tightening the lid because their was dried product on the back. I haven’t turned it on since. what can I do to clean it from the inside?

I have a Ninja professional with 1000 watts. I put the blade into the cup, put it on the base and pushed on it. Nothing happened so picked up the cup. It came off the blade dumping the contents all in the base around the blade. Obviously I didn’t have it screwed on correctly. How can I clean it? I tried qui tips, a toothbrush and a little water. Have I ruined my blender? 😳

I love my Ninja 1000 Watt Professional blender with single serve cups but a small, black, rubber piece came off and now every time I use it on single serve fluid leaks out. The piece that came out looks like a “plug” of some sort. I can’t find my manual to see where it came from. Any assistance you can offer would be greatly appreciated!!! My morning Bulletproof coffee is a mess!!!
Thank you!!!

Reply
    Anna Powell

    Hi Debi, I am having a hard time picturing what the piece looks like. For nutri ninja blade there is a little rubber gasket on top that surrounds the blade but it would have to be ripped open in order to come off. Otherwise it must be under the blade. Does it leak when you just fill up the cup and screw on the blade without running the blender ? I assume you probably have the popular BL660 model so here is a link to their manual to download. Otherwise I would contact Ninja support and see if they have advice. Also, you can just buy a new Nutri Ninja blade from Ninja.

I have the Nutri Ninja professional 1500 watt system which consists of the blender, food processor and smoothie maker. I put the blade in the dish washer (bad move) and it fell down and the plastic casement on the blade melted. I have tried to buy the correct replacement but don’t know which to order. Nowhere on the box does it indicate the model number (B…). Received one blade, approx 4″ diameter, but it was too large to fit the base. Do you know specific replacement blade I should order?

    Anna Powell

    Hi Nancy, Check out Ninja available accessories for sale for the Ninja Pro 1500 kitchen system that Ninja sells direct. Here is a link (just click “View More” on the page to see all the accessories). I am not sure which blade you are referring to? I am assuming it is the total crushing blade.

    For finding a model # typically on all Ninja blenders it will be on the bottom of the blender base listed on a “Rating Label” sticker or on the bottom of the body. If you still can’t figure it out, you can try calling Ninja 866-826-6941

Hi, Anna. I put my Ninja 32 oz cup on the base thinking the kid was screwed on but it wasn’t! Oops!!!! My smoothie ingredients spilled all over it and the rest of my kitchen. I desperately wiped it down and hosed it off with my sink sprayed. After drying it off, I was able to blend my new smoothie for about 40 seconds. Then it stopped and the red light now blinks every time I try it again. I cleaned it more with a dry toothbrush. It clicks into place but still blinks.
I am trying to give it a rest in hopes that it will fully dry and revive.
Do you have any advice? Thank you!

    Hello Dolly, sorry for delayed reply(I was on vacation). Which Ninja blender model do you have ? Typically liquids inside the motor will he hard to fix. I know putting submerging a cellphone in dry rice will really help absorb any remaining moisture and could help with a blender . Typically with a blender I turn it upside down and use a hairdryer right after any spill.

I have the 1500watt professional blender. Can I use the individual cups to chop small quantities of vegetables?

Reply
    Anna Powell

    Hi Karen, sure you can try but the Nutri Ninja blade might not be the best at chopping certain vegetables. Try it with pulse. The blade is designed to work best with liquid and pull ingredients down into a vortex blending motion vs. a flat food processor type of blade.

I was making a smoothie in the 1500 size blender bowl. I used the bowl because of the amount of ingredients. I had frozen fruit, coconut milk, yogurt and ice. I turned it on to the crush setting. It blew a hoke through the bowl, destroying it. Why would that happen?

Reply
    Anna Powell

    Wow I haven’t heard of that but I do know that Ninja says not to use the Food Processor Bowl for making drinks and to only use it for food processing, chopping, mixing, dough, meal prep(The manual has a table showing the types of foods you can do with each function and accessory). The ice crushing is high speed with high torque so if you used that with the chopping blade I could see how that would create crack the bowl as that blade works differently than the Total crushing or Nutri Ninja blade. Try calling Ninja support and see if they can help you out 866-826-6941

What power base would be interchangeable with model BL666QBK.

Reply
    Anna Powell

    Hello Judith. Are you talking about the actual blender ? The NINJA BL666QBK must be a model for a specific retailer as I don’t know that one. I assume it is part of the BL660 series (which has the BL660 as the base model and other versions like the BL663 and BL665 which just have additional accessories). The Ninja® Professional Blender BL660 is the main model in that series which is sold at many retailers or you can individual parts for product line from Ninja(here is product page link)

    Reply
Jason

Hi, we have a BL660 and are looking for a food processor attachment. All I can find is the add on food processor bowl and blade. Do they not make an attachment for this model that has a slicer/shredder blade and chute to drop in cheese, etc? I see there is a nice food processor kit with exactly what I’m looking for (has several disks included) but I guess the bases are not interchangeable? Thanks in advance for any help you can offer!

Reply
    Anna Powell

    Hi Jason, I know it is so confusing figuring out all the Ninja models and unfortunately most of their product lines are NOT interchangeable with parts. Check out this link with all the available accessories for the Ninja BL660. To my knowledge the BL660 doesn’t offer the slicing shredding functionality maybe because of the 1100 watt motor. The closest model with slicing shredding is the more powerful 1500 watt Ninja Mega BL773co or the newer designed models.

    Hello Reece, typically the containers are not compatible with the older models but I would double check for the 602CO model as the jar is very similar design to the new Intellisense blender jars.

Hello, I have a Ninja Chef CT805, we have had for 10 months, just noticed the base pitcher is leaking , we normally run the clean cycle and let it set for a few minutes then rinse. noticed then when holding the pitcher after some turns on the bottom we could produce a drip or leak which explained the liquid under the pitcher.

Is this something common, i cannot see any cracks in the pitcher we only use it for smoothies. It is within warranty period. should we try adjusting the seal/blade washer or contact warranty support for the pitcher? Thanks in advance!

Can I grind rice into flour with the Ninja Kitchen System with Auto-iQ Boost and which Ninja product works best in doing so?

Reply
    Anna Powell

    Hi, the Total Crushing blade(tall column with multiple blades) on Ninja blenders doesn’t work that great at finely milling rice. The nutri Ninja single serve cups can grind rice well because of the more traditional blender blade design which pulls the ingredients down to the blade. Otherwise, The Ninja Chef blender model is good for grinding rice.

Hi I know you said that some models are not interchangeable. I have a BL642 that totally stopped working that I have bought accessories for which were expensive. Is there any way you could check for me which models would be compatible with the one I have? I have talked to customer service and they said they have no way of checking.

Reply
    Anna Powell

    Hello Sue, you can still get the Ninja BL642 if you want to replace it. Otherwise the Ninja® Professional Prep System accessory is compatible with the new Intellisense Kitchen System blender Model CT680. (The Intellisense blender line is essentially the same as the Duo blender line(Bl640/BL642) but with new controls and jar recognition). The Nutri Ninja single serve cups are universal and works with any model that uses the Nutri Ninja cups. The 72 oz pitcher should also work with all of the Ninja BL640 and BL680 models(and related) as well as the new Intellsense models (CT680 / CT682). Let me know if you still have questions.

I have a BL 455 and while I was blending it leaked into the base, and I did not notice it. It was just a small amount. The mixture I was blending was semi sweet and after use, I set it out to dry. Overnight it was invaded by ants. They were down in the small push down parts.
My question is can I soak the top part of the unit with just a small amount of hot soapy water to clean in case this happens again? I’m not talking about emersing the entire unit. Thanks

    Hi Ray. Happy holidays and sorry for the delayed response. I wouldn’t recommend getting any more liquid in the blender. You could try vinegar or rubbing alcohol. If there is still moisture in it you could try submerging it in dry rice which will absorb the moisture.

Reply

    Hi, the total crushing blade(the stacked tall blade) isn’t ideal for grinding meat but you can try it. Ninja does make a food processor blade which looks similar to a food processor(chopping) blade that is better designed for it. There are some videos from Ninja, Vitamix or Blendtec that show how to properly chop meat with a blender.

Thank you.
Sincerely,
Maggie

I have a NINJA BL642 Model. The 7 fin extractor blade used in single serve container is rubbing and leaving black plastic shreds and sometimes I have seen it smoke. What is the reason. What I should do?

Hi Anna
My Auto-IQ SMOOTH BOOST NONJA is making a very different and strong noise. I thing it is a bearing problem. How can I fix it?
