Ninja Professional Blender – BL610 Review
If you are looking for a powerful blender for your kitchen, the Ninja Professional Blender BL610 will be the right choice for you. The performance power of this blender is 1000 watts. It can crush even the strongest ingredients in just a few seconds.
There are three important programs on the control panel of the Ninja Professional BL610, including the on/off power button, pulse function and speed button. There are three speeds available: low, medium and high. All three speeds are designed for chopping and processing different food items.
Soft ingredients such as soft veggies and fruits can be chopped at a low speed, while ingredients that are hard like nuts, sugar or even ice can be crushed at medium speed. For processing shakes and smoothies, it’s better to use the blender on high speed.
During blending, there are times when you open the jar to mix the mixture to avoid any air pockets and check if ingredients are chopped well, but if you are using the Ninja Professional Blender BL610, you don’t need to do that. The presence of the pulse function plays the role of a spatula. It ensures all the ingredients are chopped well and there are no air pockets.
The assembling and disassembling of the Ninja Professional Blender BL610 is quite complicated. In order to assemble the blade, lock, and lid, the jar needs to be placed in a special way on the base unit. If the locking process goes even a bit wrong, the blender won’t work. Then there is a six-prong blade tower that also needs to be placed in a specific manner. Again, if there is even a small problem, the blender will not run. Disassembling also requires a complicated procedure.
The company claims that the blender can be washed in a dishwasher. The gadget pitcher, blade tower and lid can all be washed in a dishwasher. However, the bulky nature of the whole blade system makes it difficult to wash it easily. The whole system takes considerable space and after washing the pitcher in the dishwasher, cracks might be noticed, making the pitcher useless. As the blades are very sharp, it gets really difficult to hand wash the blender. It’s not safe to wash the tower as it’s quite tall.
The Ninja Professional Blender BL610 can bear a heavy-duty job because of the presence of a powerful 1000-watt motor. There are a lot of plastic parts used for the construction of the motor. The life expectancy of the base unit and motor is said to be 1 to 1.5 years.
The blender also has a polycarbonate container. The quality and durability of the container is questionable, and it’s not the best thing about the blender. The container is made of plastic that can hardly handle hot ingredients or liquids. The lid is again made of the plastic that causes durability issues.
The blade present in the Ninja Professional Blender BL610 is made in a quite unique way. The unusual blade contains six stainless steel blades. The aim of this unique blade design was to improve the blender’s performance.
The blender comes in a grey and silver trimming, but one other packaging is also available and a combination of black and silver colors. The blender does not have a tamper. The Ninja Professional Blender BL6100 is also available in a certified refurbished model as well. These models are cheaper than the original blender.
It’s better to use the blender with a rubber mat underneath it because it’s quite loud. It produces around 100 decibels, even while processing soft ingredients.
The warranty of the Ninja Professional Blender BL610 is for one year. Repairing or replacement may cause extra charges.
There are no optional accessories or extra attachments available with the blender. Plus, you cannot use any attachment for different Ninja blenders. Only those replacement parts should be bought that are available for this machine.
There is also an instruction book and inspiration guide with the blender. The gadget can fit in a standard kitchen cabinet and is 15.8 inches tall.
The decision whether to buy the Ninja Professional Blender BL610 or not depends on how much time you spend in the kitchen, your budget and your love for making shakes, smoothies, purees, frozen treats and more. If drinks are your specialty, this blender is all you need.
If you are looking for a blender with durability, it’s better to explore other options. However, if you think the Ninja Professional Blender BL610 can satisfy your needs and you don’t want to buy a blender for a huge amount, go for it!
