If you are looking for a quality mid-range dual blender/food processor, the Ninja Mega Kitchen System is a solid option. With prices starting around $150, the Ninja Mega Kitchen System isn’t the least expensive option on the market, but it is only a fraction of the price of a Vitamix or other high-powered blender.
Overall, those who have purchased and reviewed the Ninja Mega Kitchen System are happy with their purchase. It has earned a solid 4.7 out of 5 possible stars from nearly 1,500 reviews on Amazon. Of those, 75% gave this product a full 5-star review, while another 10% rated it a 4 star. That translates to almost 1,300 people who have purchased this item and are happy with their decision to do so.
Those who rated it 3 stars or less were disappointed with the quality and durability of the plastic components and/or its ability to live up to product claims of superior blending performance. Many of these reviewers noted that they wish that had spent the extra money for a higher-end Vitamix model, rather than investing in a mid-level unit like this. However, when you consider starting prices of the most popular Vitamix models are more than 3 times the prices of the Ninja, this is not a fair apples-to-apples comparison.
Let’s take a closer look at the options you have available with this system. There are three models to choose from with the Ninja Mega Kitchen System, but once we take a closer look at what is included and the price points for each, it becomes clear there is really only one choice to make.
The entry-level BL770 base model includes:
2 Horsepower – 1500 Watts Professional Kitchen System
XL 72oz. Professional Blender with Total Crushing Technology
XL 8 Cup Food Processing Bowl for Chopping and Dough Making
2 Professional Nutri Ninja Cups for Nutrient and Vitamin Extraction
Next, the Ninja Mega Kitchen System with Meal Prep Kit (model # BL771) is the mid-level model which includes all of the above, plus:
- 1 Cup Bowl in Bowl Chopping Blade for Everything from Meal Prep to Final Touches.
Finally, you have the BL772 Ninja Mega Kitchen System with Meal Prep Kit and Bonus Nutri Ninja To-Go Cup, which includes everything in the mid-level BL771 model plus one additional Professional Nutri Ninja Cup.
Here is where things get a little weird… even though all three options have the exact same specs other than the additional attachments noted above, take a closer look at how pricing breaks down as of this writing:
Ninja Mega Kitchen System (BL770) – new price $155.19
Ninja Mega Kitchen System with Meal Prep Kit (BL771) – new price: $228.85
Ninja Mega Kitchen System with Meal Prep Kit and Bonus Nutri Ninja Cup (BL772) – new price: $349.99
If you upgrade to the BL772, you are going to be paying more than $100 more for ONE extra Nutri Ninja Cup. A quick check of Amazon shows these can be purchased for around $20, so it is hard to fathom why the cost of the BL772 is so much more.
To illustrate, here is a screenshot of a grid comparison between the 3 models:
You can see from this comparison (taken directly from Amazon) that the differences between the 3 models are minimal. Perhaps the BL770 and BL771 are on special right now and that is why there is such a huge price disparity between the BL771 and BL772. If that is the case, there is no telling how long this will last. So, if you are in the market for a solid mid-level blender/food processor combo, it’s definitely worth a look to see if you can still snag a good deal.
