Many of you have probably seen the TV commercial comparing the Ninja Ultima vs Vitamix reviews. This honest review will compare the features of both.

Before I begin, I want to give an honest review that will help you decide which of these will be best for your particular needs. In fairness, I must say that I own neither of these particular blenders. I do own one of the original Ninja blenders and owned a Vitamix for many years, so I feel I am qualified to compare them objectively. All still images from Amazon.

You probably can’t go wrong if you decide to purchase either of these because they are both excellent blenders and will probably do the job you require. But let’s look at the features and see if one has better ones than the other. Here is a comparison chart showing the features and prices of both. You can click on the images or the “More Info” to get complete details.

Sorry the star ratings didn’t show, both of them have a 4+ star rating from reviewers. Before I go further, in case you haven’t seen the commercial I mentioned, here it is:

That video was obviously a commercial for the Ninja Ultima and you can get complete specifications by clicking here. There are 5 different models of this series. All contain at least a 2.5 horsepower and 1500 watt motor, one model has and one has a 1500 watt, 3 HP motor.

The video shows the Vitamax 7500, but there are also several models available from them also. It  has a peak 2.2 horse power, 1500 watt motor. You can get more information here.

Since the above video was from Ninja, I found this video review that was more helpful and shows more features and performance of the Ninja. It should be more useful in making your decision. But there is no question, as far as price is concerned, the Ninja is a much lower price. But the Vitamix has a 7 year warranty where the Ninja only has a 2 year warranty. Here is the video showing how the Ninja juices several different vegetables and fruit, including some greens which are difficult to blend.

You can see from the video how well it works, even with some tough ingredients. If you have used a juicer to juice fruits and vegetables, you know how many you have to juice to get a glass of juice. And I hate having to clean up after using a juicer. They do a good job, but cleaning up all of the pulp left behind is not a pleasant job. Since there is no pulp left behind a simple rinse and pop it in the dishwasher for easy clean up. Using either of these two machines to make juices in place of a juicer will allow you to consume all of the pulp that is removed when you use a juicer. The pulp is sometimes the most nutritious part of the fruit or vegetable, so why throw it away.

I could also show a similar video of the Vitamix, but there is no doubt that it will do the job.  The main question is, can the Ninja do the same job, since it is much less money.  Earlier models of the Ninja series, while good, would not be able to handle the juicing job you saw in the video above. I love my older model, but would not even attempt to try to juice greens. But it does a great job of making my smoothies from bananas, strawberries, protein powder and some milk. You can use water, but I usually use milk. Freezing the bananas will make it even thicker.

But my wife and I need to lose some serious weight and my blood sugar level has been near a diabetic. So after watching a show on the merits of juicing, I am wanting to get a blender that will do the job. As I mentioned above, I hate the cleanup of a juicer and also the amount of fruit and vegetables need. I read that a typical juicing diet can cost about $13 a day for the necessary amount of fruit and vegetables to juice. That is nearly $100  ($91) a week per person. That is WAY out of our budget. Using one of these high end blenders should cut that cost in more than half. My smoothies cost less than a $1. The savings could pay for one of these in a short time. And who can put a price on the value of good health.

First, let me say that I don’t think you can go wrong with either of these. My Vitamix blender that we owned 15 years ago would do the job for you and they have only been made better. Their 7 year warranty is a true warranty. We had a problem with a part on ours after 6 years and they replaced it with no charge. But today I would choose the Ninja Ultima because of the cost difference. If money was no object I might choose the Vitamix, but the reality is that money does matter.
