Background and Identification
Ninja blenders are personal countertop kitchen appliances manufactured by SharkNinja. There are numerous types of Ninja blenders designed for different purposes including Ninja Ultima, Nutri Ninja, Ninja Professional, and Ninja Kitchen System. Ninja and Vitamix are notable rivals in the high performance blender market.
The Ultima blender series introduced Ninja’s patent pending Dual Stage Blending Technology, which uses two blades running at different speeds to break up large chunks and blend them into a liquid.
Ninja continues to innovate blender technologies with the release of the Ninja Foodi Cold & Hot Blender. In addition to blending frozen ingredients, the Ninja Foodi uses an 800-watt heating element to boil and simmer liquids.
Some Ninja blenders include Pro Extractor blades to pulverize tough ingredients and release nutrients from fruits and vegetables. Another feature is Ninja’s Auto-IQ technology which allows the user to customize blending settings. Some models are compatible with special attachments including a dough mixer and a shredder.
In 2015, Ninja issued a recall of twelve blender models after 53 injuries were reported from their patented stacked blade assembly.
