Questions & Answers for Shark Ninja Quad Blade Food Processor, QB900

Question

Replace a regular blender?

My Oster pitcher broke and the replacement is close to half the cost of this. I was never very happy with the crushed/snow ice feature. Will it replace my Osterizer? I still have a Little Oscar for small jobs like cracker crumbs for meatloaf, etc...

I would guess it could. We have been very happy with the blender part of this machine (and the chopper part)...it blends completely and seems quite powerful enough to handle ice. Although the instructions do say to put in 1 cup at a time. So far, the Ninja has outdone our blender that we had by a longshot! We don't have the blender anymore.

If you get the one with six blades and the more powerful motor, it should do a wonderful job crushing the ice. I got the quad blade and it does a fairly good job

I own two blenders, one a very expensive gourmet brand sold in higher end stores, and yes the Ninja replaced them perfectly! However, let me remind you, the Ninja works best when you at least initially PULSE IT! Many of the respondents fail to do this and have experienced less than desired results! The blades are extremely fast, pulsing is a simple tap, not a hold.

Once you get the knack, you'll never use that blender again, for anything!

Yes. Easily, and smoothly. No lumps. It blends and purees beautifully. I made potato salad with it this morning, and while at it experimented with pureeing fresh, uncooked vegetables before cooking them. After cooking I will puree them again.

Yes! I make purees for my pastry baking--I steam the fruits and veggies gently and then process. As your baby gets bigger and can eat a few chunky things you just process less--I make a chunky veg. stew for my kids that are grown that they use as a meal with french bread or as a spread and it would be a geat baby food.

Yes, I feel it is a consistency smooth enough for baby food. I used a hand held grinder to make baby food for mine (15 years ago!) and this blender does a job as smooth as that grinder. The more liquid you add will tend to make the finished product even smoother.

Yes, because the Ninja comes with two containers, a 2 cup, also an up to 6 cup, you may make a little or enough for larger events. Just remember, Pulse (Tap) to initially get the processor going, when the solid ingredients breakdown, you can puree to the consistency you desire.

I have had my Ninja for several months now, and yes, it does Crush Ice to powder! However, you must follow the instructions to Pulse (tap) the power head. Remember, Ice is solid, and in order to avoid overheating/jamming the motor, when doing Ice, do not overfill, and Pulse the unit, then add more Ice until the amount needed has been crushed.

Please Note: When making shakes even though you will be using liquids, still use the Pulse feature-- until there are no chunks. If you operate the Ninja in this way, you will be very happy with it, and have many years of trouble-free operation!

This is why I bought it to make smoothies. This machine crushes ice to perfection and smoothies taste superb! It only has the pulse function, you may have to crush a little longer, but it works and well worth the price for the results you get.

answer 5
Yes, Yes, Yes. Just remember to only use 6 to 8 ice cubes, and just a touch of liquid in between the pulses. Don't get upset if your first attempt is messy. Learn from mine when I tried to make a strawberry smoothie with a full tray of ice cubes, and half a box of frozen strawberries without defrosting them first, and not adding the liquid between pulses. The pitcher is big, but can only handle ice cubes at the half full level or less. Any more and you will have a block of ice and a frozen chopper blade. Don't over estimate the amounts the way I did.

The machine probably could but in all fairness it wouldn't be a good idea. You would do better with a coffee grinder for your coffee--peanuts would work if you are after peanut butter, sugar would work probably but if this was all you planned on using the Ninja for then I would opt for something else.

answer 2
I also own a Cuisinart Smart Power Duet, and while it is beautiful (Chrome) on display, it does not to the same quality of my Ninja: puree, crush ice, and it is a lot louder in operation.

To be fair, the Duet, also has a Food Processor Base (which I use, the blender I no longer use) will slice, shred. Therefore if you are interested in making chopped salads, home fries/scalloped/hash brown potatoes, uniform veggies, or home Pizza toppings, you will still require a Food Processor.

My Ninja, has made Salsa, Coffee Drinks, Cocktails, Shakes, even Quiches, to absolute gourmet perfection.

It is very simple to use, not really heavy or bulky, and in my opinion light years ahead of other more expensive blenders. I bought the Ninja over the Cuisinart after balancing my personal needs. Please remember everyone is different and what works for me may not work for you. You be the judge based on your needs. They are both excellent products.

For chopping and mincing it is far superior to any other food processor or blender--I have cooked professionally for years and just recently invested in first one Ninja and then 4 more--they are the way to go--but if you need to shred cheeze or cabbage or potatoes or slice then you would want a mandolin (my choice) or cuisinart--actually, for the money you absolutely cannot beat the Ninja--I make one thing right after another, the clean up is very quick and easy so that you can switch to another food item for prep--but I never put it in the dishwasher, ever!--I make instant salsa, maranades, salad dressings, grind chicken thighs for chicken patties, combine several herbs and whip them up for combo herb rubs and seasonings and I could go on and on forever! As an owner of 5 I advise you to Buy one--you will not be sorry!

Does this product come with lids for the containers?

When I watched the infomercial I saw that the product came with lids to cover the containers so you could make salsa then put it in the fridge. Does the unit come with them? Other stores lists them as being included but I don't see that this one does.

If your grinding something really hard like ice it is a kind of loud, more so the grinding than the motor. But blending a drink with the ice mixed with liquids is no problem, it's no louder than a normal blender.
