Ninja Professional Blender – Overview
The Ninja Professional Blender BL610 is rated at 1000 Watts of power, sufficient to handle pretty much everything you would ever need to blend in your kitchen. Crush ice and frozen fruit for delicious frozen drinks. Make smoothies with ease. You will love how quick and easy this machine makes big jobs.
Ninja Professional Blender BL610 – Features
The blade design, which Ninja calls “Total Crushing® Technology” is unique and creates a powerful vortex to quickly turn ice into snow and solid food into liquid. Yet, when using pulse mode the very sharp blades can be precisely controlled. This makes the machine a food processor for even better value for the money. It is very important in a small kitchen for your appliances to be able to multi-task.
One thing to note is the sharpness of the blades. Care needs to be taken when handling the blade assembly. When pouring contents out of the container always keep the lid on and use the convenient pour spout. The blade assembly is not fixed to the bottom and can come out suddenly. If you try to stop it you can easily grab a sharp blade and cut your hand. Similarly, when cleaning always remove the blade assembly by holding the top and take care not to touch any of the sharp blades.
You can make 6 to 9 servings, depending on serving size, all at one time in the large 72 oz. blending container. The jar is BPA-free and dishwasher-safe.
Safety and Control
For safety, the container with the blade attached and the lid must both be locked and clicked in place before the unit can be turned on. The unit has 3 speeds controlled by a simple 5 button interface on the front panel. Buttons are:
- Power – turns unit on/ off
- Low – for processing and mixing thin batters, gravies and marinades
- Medium – crush ice, grate hard cheeses, grind nuts, chop, cream soups, blend mixed drinks, and make milkshakes
- High – purée and liquify, mix smoothies, frappes, and blend whole fruits and veggies
- Pulse – use to control chopping and processing and for bursts of power
The blender is easily cleaned. Removable parts are all dishwasher safe. The lid and stacked blade assembly are top rack dishwasher safe.
The 1000W power rated motor is protected by a thermal overload. Many other units use a breakable drive assembly, which you have to replace, in order to protect the more expensive motor. With a thermal protection device, all you have to do is clear the problem that created the overload condition, wait 15 minutes until the motor cools down, then restart the blender.
The Ninja Professional Blender BL610 comes with a 1-year limited warranty.

Ninja Professional Blender BL610 – Pros & Cons
- Large Capacity
- BPA-free components
- Thermal overload protection
- Multi-tasking – blender and food processor in one
- Very sharp blades are not firmly fixed in place and so can cause cuts if not handled carefully
- The container is plastic and has a tendency to develop cracks if heated. This means dishwashing on the top shelf, away from the hottest area of the dishwasher. And don’t use it for blending hot soup or sauces.
- Some people complain about the short cord (2 foot) so you need to be close to a power outlet or use an extension cord
- Fairly large (Dimensions: 10.6 x 8.2 x 15.8 inches). Check the height and space under your kitchen cabinets to make sure it will fit fully assembled. Also, how near is a power receptacle to the place you want to use it?
What Fruits And Veggies Does It Juice?
Almost all fruits and vegetables can be blended. The Ninja Professional Blender BL610 handles all with ease.
