I just bought a Ninja. http://www.bedbathandbeyond.com/prod...480391&RN=436&
I'm very impressed. Made to last. Bigger than I expected. (It came with a 48oz and 40oz pitcher and the 16oz non-pitcher one, plus 3 lids. Blades are situated along center spindle of each.) Looks like the whole thing is quality and will last a lifetime or two.
crushed ice + Welches grape juice,
smoothies (ice, banana, oj, milk, dried cranberries, some blueberryies, etc.) OUTSTANDING... it's like Ice Cream
scrambled eggs (threw in some string cheese and whatever else was in fridge, cilantro)
Now I need to come up with things to make ...in order to justify the space the set takes up on counter/cupboards so hubby doesn't kill me for buying ANOTHER food toy.
I reallllly like it. If I had little kids and a family to feed and entertain with drinks, etc., I'd be even more nutty about it. (Sharp blades...store out of reach of kids.)
Anybody have smoothie and other recipes for making in a blender/whiz machine? Anybody else bought a Ninja or MB?
