I can't wait to make some hummus, and in the fall/winter lots of soups will be made. This is by far the nicest blender I've ever owned. I have used a Vitamix before, and I would never say the Ninja can do what a Vitamix can do. But I will say for those of us who don't have four or five hundred dollars for a blender, this is a pretty good alternative. It says that it can tackle even the smallest of seeds, such as flax so we shall see. The Ninja comes with a five year warranty, so that makes me feel pretty good. It's definitely worth the cost, and again while it's no Vitamix, it does the job for me.
The only thing that kind of drives me insane is that you have to put the base on a certain way, and then twist to "lock it in". You also have to have the lid on a certain way or it won't run. I'm finally figuring it out, but I did cuss this thing out a time or two in the beginning. That's my only complaint really. All in all, I'm happy with my new blender, and I'm confident we will have a long and happy relationship!
Do you have a Vitamix?
