Product Overview

The Ninja CT682SP Intelli-Sense Kitchen System with Auto-Spiralizer is a high-power, high-performance 4-in-1 appliance. The system consists of a high power 1200 Watt smart base unit with 4 different vessels.

The 4 vessels are:

  1. 72 oz. Total Crushing Blender
  2. 64 oz. Precision Processor
  3. 24 oz. Single-Serve Cup
  4. Auto-Spiralizer

Attachments are BPA-free and dishwasher-safe for fast and easy cleanup.

Smart Vessel Recognition

When a vessel is attached to the base, Smart Vessel Recognition automatically recognizes which vessel has been attached and displays a menu of pre-set programs on the touchscreen. The pre-set programs will pulse, pause and blend in patterns inspired by chefs in order to get the best results.

The Ninja Kitchen System has 12 pre-set Smart Programs:

The intuitive touchscreen display stands up well to everyday kitchen use and is easily cleaned. It is used to switch between chef-inspired vessel-specific Smart Programs and manual options.

Total Crushing Pitcher

The 72-ounce pitcher is used for blending whole fruits and ice for family sized beverages, frozen drinks, snow cones, ice cream and more.

Precision Processor

The 64-ounce precision processor makes food processing a breeze. You can chop, purée, garnish and make bread or pizza dough in this vessel.

Single-Serve Cup

The 24-ounce single-serve cup is ideal for make-and-go smoothies in the morning. Like a personal blender, the cup is designed to be inverted on the top of the smart power base for blending the smoothie. Flip it over when done blending, remove the blade assembly, put the travel lid on and away you go.

 

Auto-Spiralizer

  2. It has been awhile since I used a blender, food processor etc. When my kids were little, I used it daily for soups, smoothies, and salads.
    Now that my adult kids have flown the nest, I only use the hand blender for soups. Your review on the NINJA CT682SP INTELLI-SENSE KITCHEN SYSTEM makes an interesting read and probably worth the investment if you have a family and you want to cut down your time in the kitchen

    1. Hi Richard,

      Thanks for the comment. In addition to the Ninja Intelli-sense Kitchen System I have reviews for immersion, personal, countertop, and commercial blenders to meet the needs of everyone. Go to my  Blenders review page to find out which one suits you best at this time.

  3. Hi there
    Many thanks for the great review of this Ninja ct682 blitzer. Judging by the special features of this appliance, it looks pretty special.
    It’s pretty much like having your own chef in the kitchen, such is the array of special treats that this device can make.
    I have a smoothie maker of my own, that i use every morning, so therefore, I know the benefit of one of these devices.
    I had a quick look at the cost of the ninja and it is reasonably priced when one sees all that it can do.
    Thanks again for the great post, continued success,
    Cheers PB

  4. This blender really can do everything you can think of, which, honestly, I would expect for the price. It’s nice that you have also included an independent review for more info for the consumer.
    I will be in the market for a blender shortly and if I can rationalize such a large purchase to my husband then this blending system will be tops on my list.
    Thanks!

    1. Hi Amy,

      Thanks for the great comment. Hope that your husband sees the value in the versatility of this multi-functional kitchen appliance.

      If you decide that the Ninja CT682SP Intelli-Sense Kitchen System is too much, have a look at reviews of some of the other Countertop Blenders available. Be sure to choose what is right for you, that’s what this site is all about.

  5. Hey Ed,
    Thanks for your Ninga Kitchen System review, very helpful.

    We purchased a cheapo blender upon venturing into the smoothie world for the purpose of an initial trial to find out whether juicing food this way suited.

    We’re pretty much hooked, our favoured smoothie mixes spinach with kiwifruit and banana. Granted it’s rather a weird combination but tastes superb and really doesn’t get any healthier than this. What we do like about this foodie method is the way a machine like this is able to use everything up in a healthy manner at the end of the week, cost saving too.

    We’re currently on the lookout to replace with a more powerful motor, our machine tends to leave quite a few lumps but as I say it was cheap & gave us the trial.

    Would you say this motor is powerful enough to juice thoroughly, this essentially is all we’ll use the machine for or would you recommend an alternative?
    Thanks for your time,
    Simon.

    1. Hi Simon,

      Thanks for the comment and question, although the answer needs some clarification.

      The Ninja CT682SP Intelli-Sense Kitchen System is certainly powerful enough to juice thoroughly. However, power isn’t the main criteria for making smooth drinks. The design of the blades and the blending jar play a very important role in blending fruits and vegetables. Please read my blog How Does A Blender Work? for a technical explanation.

      As you are only using a blender for “juicing”, I think the Intelli-Sense Kitchen System is too much for you. The processor and auto-spiralizer parts will just sit in your cupboard wasting space. In order to recommend a proper alternative I need to know the quantity of blending you will be doing. If it’s only for yourself or you and your partner, then a personal blender like the Nutri Ninja Auto-iQ Blender BL482 would work just fine for you. However, if you are looking to make smoothies for the whole crowd then how about the Ninja Professional Blender BL660. The BL660 has a 72-oz pitcher as well as two 16-oz personal sized cups. Both of these have the power, but more importantly the blade and blending jar design to produce very smooth smoothies.

      Hope this helps. If not, please don’t hesitate to ask for more clarification.

  6. Thank you for the thorough and easy to follow review. I’ve been looking at the Ninja Mega Kitchen and have been holding out for a discount. Now I see THIS! And it seems like a dream machine.
    I need a decent blender, I need a decent food processor. A spiralizer is a bonus.
    I want to do nut butter, can it handle it?
    Milk shakes are a must to get this past my husband! Good or great?
    I want to make a small batch of chocolate chip cookies, can it handle it? Pizza dough? Will my spiral veggies look as nice as the photos?
    Is there an extended warranty?

    1. Hi Nancy,

      Thanks for the comment and questions.
      Although I personally have not tried to make nut butter myself, from all that I’ve read, heard and seen the Ninja CT682SP Intelli-Sense Kitchen System performs all of its multiple functions perfectly without compromise, including nut butter.
      The milkshakes are great! Cookies and pizza dough, no problem. And finally, yes the spiral veggies look amazing.
      Don’t just go by my opinion, though. Amazon customers give it 4.7 out of 5 stars and absolutely raving reviews. I have honestly never seen anything on Amazon get a total of 96% 4 and 5-star ratings. Only 4% gave it 1 star and that was because of early failure which happens to all appliances. That’s what warranty is all about.
      And to answer your last question, the warranty from Amazon is only a 1-year limited warranty.
      The good news is that Ninja kitchen has a special price today (don’t know how long it will be on sale) at $199 Free S&H and Free 2-year VIP warranty.

      1. Most of the Amazon positive reviews are from people who’ve received the product for free.
        Before making your decision, read the additional comments with lower rating.
        I placed an order for the product on the Ninja site. Why, because they offer additional spiralizing blades and grating blades for the food processor. They held my order for 5 days. The charge was pending on my cc account. Today I received an email that my order was cancelled. Their reason, “we were unable to process your payment”. I believe that is total bs. I think that they don’t have the “limited time offer” items available.
        If this is they way they do business, it does not give me confidence in their customer service.

        1. Hi Karen,

          Yes, recently I noticed an issue with Ninja product reviews on Amazon as well as other Amazon product reviews. In order to protect my readers, I am revisiting all of the products in my past reviews. I am going to add a note to the Ninja CT682SP Intelli-Sense Kitchen System Review, and any others that I find to be unreliable, about the fact that the Amazon reviews are suspect. However, other websites that are trustworthy and have independently reviewed this product have found it to be very good and given it high ratings. This is the reason it is on my website.
          Sorry to hear about your experience with Ninja. Have you contacted them directly? Although their Amazon reviews of this product are suspect, so far their customer service has been very good. Here is their toll-free customer support number 866-826-6941. Maybe it was a glitch between Ninja and your cc company as has happened to me in the past, (not with Ninja – another company). Hope you are successful in resolving the issue.
          Your feedback is much appreciated, thank you.
          Ed

  7. Oh my goodness I’ve heard about these and have wanted one for a long time, your review just made me want one even more. Love that it does so much with just one machine. I definitely will be looking into buying one of these soon. Makes for eating healthy a lot for easy and fun. Thanks for this review truly enjoyed it!

  8. This was a GREAT review. I have wanted a Ninja blender for a long time and now I definitely will be getting one very soon. I love that you broke down all the different things it can do and the pictures were great also. This would also be a fun way to eat more healthy. Congratulations on a great review.

  9. I have REALLY been considering getting one of the new Ninja systems. I have one of the older mid level models that I use to make smoothies currently, but my wife and I were looking into one of the beefier models that does the ice cream and cookie dough as well.

    However, we have been getting into more healthy food options and the fact this model has the spiralizer to make vegetable based dishes is very appealing to me.

    I may have to pick one of these up as it gives more power to my smoothy making as well as gives us more options for healthy eating with the spiralizer!

    1. Hi Thomas,

      Thanks for the comment. I’m glad that my review of the Ninja CT682SP Intelli-Sense Kitchen System has helped you make a decision on the best multi-function blender for you.

      Ed

  10. Hey. Thanks for this review was very useful to me. I had plenty of multifunction devices in my kitchen and they took up a lot of space. I came to the conclusion that it would be useful to me one that has the functions of several. So I started looking on the net if there are such kitchen appliances and I came across your website. I’m going to buy this device. Thanks.

    1. Hi Michael,

      Glad I was able to help you find the small kitchen appliance that suits your needs. Hope you enjoy many hours with the CT682SP Intelli-Sense Kitchen System, you have made a very good choice.

      Ed
