The Ninja Mega Kitchen exudes comfort in both the exterior and interior factors. It is presentable as a dream appliance that combines a blender, a food processor and a juicer.
This system appliance introduces new dimensions in crushing and blending technology. It is perfect for blending frozen items, processing food and extracting vitamins.
The pitcher in this set is an extra-large one that can fill up to 72oz. Accompanying gadget includes the 8 extra-large cup Processor Bowls and Nutri Ninja Cups. The capacity of the pitcher is perfect for serving a big family.
Among all Ninja blenders, this appliance has the highest power (1500 Watts). Such power helps to reduce food processing time and who does not want that, right?
The blades are high-quality removable ones, for easy use. They specialize in many food categories and are of two types: 4-blade and 6-blade system.
They thrash and crush through ice, fruits, and vegetables in seconds. The result is a collection of marvelous sauces, dips, and smoothies.
The 2 Nutri Ninja cups come with lids. So, they serve as easy-to-go cups so you can take your smoothie out daily.
The 8-processor cups serve as a great help in chopping and dough making. And, you can even mix 2 lbs. of dough in 30 seconds if you use the dough blade.
The Ninja Mega Kitchen System BL770 is the assembly of specialized appliances. It keeps in mind the comforts and troubles of daily life.
If you are looking for an easy kitchen system, it is wise to go over the details of all brands and decide for yourselves. Personally, I would go for the high performing Ninja Kitchen System.
The functions of the Ninja BL770 Kitchen System come with many notable pointers. These can turn out to be important deciding factors in whether you should buy the machine or not.
This best blender food processor combo is not only known for its versatility but also for its intricate detailing of parts, which facilitate the food processing in many ways.
Chopping or Preparing Food
One can use the food processor container and blade assembly for chopping vegetables (salad, coleslaw) or making sauces (salad mix, dips). The mini-prep bowl-chopping blade screens cheese and crumbs.
This system has no separate juice-making machine. But, it can help you make healthy and delicious smoothies, also known as whole juice.
Soup or Hot Food Item
This machine will not make your soup for you by heating the liquid to a boiling temperature. It can make soup only with cooked ingredients.
In fact, the manual mentions not to use boiling hot liquids in it. Doing so will cause your blender to develop cracks and render the whole system useless.
Fruit and vegetable smoothies can be made with the 72 oz. pitcher that is accessorized with tower blades. But, the blender may have trouble working through the fibers of these delicacies. Especially, mango, broccoli, carrots, and cauliflower tend to become thick and granular liquids.
No matter the duration of blending, the drink will not be smooth enough. Even the seeds of small berries do not go through complete thrashing.
Also, while making smoothies, you will notice that foods tend to stick to the internal wall. Pause the blender and scrape them off to make sure the smoothie has the granules in the right proportion.
Grinding of coffee beans or milling grains into baking powder is difficult with this set. It is not designed for such tasks. But, softer ingredients like herbs or oats can be milled in the blender very easily.
Thus, grinding/milling is not a strong suit for this kitchen appliance. And for such tasks, it is suggested to use the single-serve cup over the food processor or main pitcher. Apparently, the main pitcher is the worst performer.
The machine fails to even out the mixture of nuts and small seeds that are needed to make nut milk. Buyers can try making it, but the sad outcome and the wastage of nuts will leave them in horror.
Although the machine is great for making nut butter, the output may still be a bit grainy. For easier processing, you can pause the blending at intervals and then, scrape off the stuck foods.
This will lead to a more evenly made nut butter. For small batches of nuts, a mini prep bowl is a suitable option.
The blender cannot make a proper vegetable puree. Adding water to it does not help much either. The small container does a better job at making purees but even that is far from perfect.
For mincing onion, garlic and others herbs, the single serve cup and mini prep bowl will do far better jobs.
In 30 seconds, the food processor bowl and blade accessories can knead all kinds of dough. But for adding extra ingredients, one will have to open the lid every time. I feel that the Ninja Mega Kitchen System’s complex lid opening system can be quite bothersome for users.
The big jug and the single-serve can smack ice very easily and effortlessly. The ice can even be turned from cubes to snow cones. However, the abysmal quality of plastic may not be able to tolerate the cold temperature, developing cracks.
Ninja BL770 vs BL771 vs BL772 vs BL773co
The Ninja Mega Kitchen System (BL770) set also includes a 72 oz. pitcher, 64 oz. processor bowl and two 16 oz. cups with lids.
The Mega Kitchen System (BL771) with meal prep kit comes with all the exact features of the BL770 model. The difference is an addition of the 3-cup bowl-inside-bowl with chopping blade. This small bowl is to go into the processor bowl for further functioning.
The Ninja Mega Kitchen System with Meal Prep Kit and Bonus Nutri Ninja (BL772) also appears to have all the features of the BL771 model. The reason it stands out is for having 3 smoothie cups with lids instead of 2.
The Ninja Mega Kitchen System BL773co is similar to BL772. The difference is the Ninja BL 773co comes with an 8-Cup Food Processor Bowl with Reversible Slicing/Shredding Disc & Grating Disc instead of the 64oz Processor Bowl (and no 3 Cup Bowl-inside-Bowl).
Ninja BL770 vs BL682
These are quite similar models. The biggest difference is the Auto IQ feature of BL682 that senses the consistency of product it is blending and varies blending speeds and pauses accordingly.
In 2019 this model is being phased out and replaced with BL642 mentioned below.
Ninja BL770 vs BL642
The Ninja BL642 also is the Auto IQ model with 1500W motor. It comes with 3 different size cups – 18oz, 24oz, and 32oz.
With this high and fast run of technology, the topmost priority of businesses is ensuring easy-functioning and time-convenient products. Hence, the expectations out there are not easy to fulfill for products manufacturers.
The Ninja blender BL770 has caused quite the uproar in the kitchen appliance market. In my research, I found that the customer reviews offer a perfect reflection of the product. Hence, they are essential in making it easy for you to decide whether you want to buy the Ninja kitchen appliance system or not.
With a power of 1500 W, this machine can blend your food item in a short time. The power contributes to the time-efficient factor of this system.
Customers even noted how easily it thrashes ice within minutes, without the use of heat. The liquefaction of vegetables and fruits is a pretty great output for smoothie making.
The system has many intricate detailed parts and is sometimes tough to maintain. However, the pitcher and bowls are easy to clean.
The machines are dishwasher proof. The dishwasher proof factor is something many customers look forward to. The plastic is very high quality, such that it does not tolerate any marks or scratches on the surface.
The noise is a frequently registered problem for the Ninja Professional Kitchen System 1500 watts. This is a byproduct of the high power (1500 W) it uses to run. The machine is designed to do heavy works like crushing through ice and thus, the high power is necessary.
Bisphenol A, an industrial chemical, is often used to make plastic. But it has proven to be harmful when in contact with food. The Ninja kitchen appliance system is BPA free. As this appliance is used for many cooking processes, the lack of harmful contamination is a relief.
Major competitors of BL770 usually have warrant periods of 5-7 years. Naturally, customers have complaints about its relatively short warranty period (one year). Some buyers avoid buying high end products without a good warranty period.
The space-saving factor of this model interests a lot of customers. Despite being a heavy-duty set, it weighs only 15.1 pounds.
The measurement of the appliances promotes easy movement as well as good storage. This is far more reasonable than having to own different machines for different food types.
Customers have often noted that food items containing fibers do not do well in this blender. The mixture does not come out even, but rather lumpy and grainy due to the fibers.
Let’s take a look at the most prominent features of the Ninja BL770 System.
# 1 Containers
The set of appliance comes with a main pitcher (72 oz.), a food processor bowl (64 oz.), single serving cups (16 oz.) and 24 oz mini prep bowl (BL771, BL772, and BL773co models) 24 oz.). The mini prep bowl needs to be fitted into the food processor bowl in order to work.
Bisphenol A is a harmful chemical, often found in plastics. The containers of Ninja Mega Kitchen Appliance are BPA free. But, they are not of a decent quality and not even shatterproof (and so can crack easily).
They are also found to be not heat resistant. The plastic used in containers is of poor quality and is prone to early cracks.
# 2 Removable Blades
Stainless steel is used for the blades in the blender. The blades in the main pitcher, food processor and mini prep are removable and are made from stainless steel. Also, the multi-level positioning of blades generates a proper vortex during blending.
But, the customer reviews suggest otherwise. The Ninja single serve standard level blades do a far better job at making delicious smoothies. The multi-level blade setting makes it hard to fill the pitcher with ingredients.
The blades of the blenders in Ninja Mega Kitchen System 1500 are very sharp. So, users need to be very careful while using them.
The blades, which are too sharp, are found to become dull and lose working capability very soon. Properly designed, average blades last longer and have a more constant performance.
