I have the nutri-bullet and Ninja kitchen 1100 blender. The bottom line is the nutri-bullet works the best at breaking down food and extracting the nutrients. The nutri-bullet is best at what is does. It is a single purpose system. All those ninja kitchen blenders have several uses. But the ninja has way better ice crushing power. The ninja does not mix the food as good the nutri-bullet. The newest ninja has a 16 ounce cup with a set up like the nutri bullet. But I don't have that system. Even so, 16 ounces is very small. The nutri-bullet has 24 ounce cup and 18 ounce cup. If you just need a single purpose machine for making your nutritious drink the nutri-bullet is your machine. Plus it is a lot cheaper than the ninja kitchen system.
I have used both. I used to juice and did not like the idea of throwing out the pulp from the juicing process. Plus, the
clean-up of a juicer is complex. The NutriBullet combines the juice and the pulp of whatever fruit or veggie you put in along with some water added. Clean-up with the NutriBullet is a breeze! The
Ninja is like a blender and does not have the power like the NutriBullet.
As another person stated, both products are good. It comes down to what exactly are your needs.
IF you are only wanting to make "smoothies," etc, then the NutriBullet would be best suited for your needs. It is also less expensive and takes up far less counter space, which is one of the reasons why I got rid of my juicer that ended up just collecting dust. A juicer also separates the "pulp" from the juice. The 'pulp' is the most nutritional part of the fruit or vegetable.
The Nutribullet is much easier to clean. Look at the "YouTube" videos for "real life" demonstrations from real people that have purchased the products.
I'd say the Nutribullet has a better way to make things flow and cut by it's blades more efficiently. It's like it's got a circulation advantage. The ninja Kitchen System you cannot operate for longer than 7 seconds, if i remember well (my friend had it). The nutribullet can be used up to a minute without stopping; which gives you a better consistency in your drink.
To a fellow Long Islander (I am now relocated), my brother has a Ninja and yes, it's a good product, but I don't want all that space being taken up in my kitchen or on the counter either.
If you go to the manufacturer's website, they even have a travel bag available, so it is all about convenience. I wouldn't want to change my health regimen just because I went on vacation or visiting family in NY. So, although the Ninja is great, I'm a devotee of the MagicBullet and now the NutriBullet systems because of space, convenience and performance.
Yes the Ninja is 1000 watts and the NutriBullet is 600 watts. Both have BPA-free plastic. The Ninja has a 72 oz pitcher with blade comparative to the NutriBullet, which has two small cups and one large cup, which is about 20 oz, the extractor blade and the milling blade. Hence, this product is really suited for the person-on the-go who has no time to lug out big appliances like the Ninja and wash all that out...
So, the choice is yours, but I hope this helps!

I have both. The Ninja works much better on solids and frozen fruit. I believe the NutriBullet works better on leafy greens. The NutriBullet is easier to clean, and the Ninja is better made. The Ninja can make a lot more at a time. Even the large cup that came with the NutriBullet doesn't hold much, and mine cracked after two or three uses. The Ninja is loud and sounds like it's gear driven. Actually, kinda sounds like an outboard motor.
I had the ninja before I bought the NutriBullet, and I hated the Ninja. It made all fruits mealy, and left large icy clumps. I hated it. I bought this, and it actually juices if you want it to, or it can make smoothies too! It is great. I would NOT recommend the Ninja to a friend. I WOULD recommend the Nutribullet though. Thanks~!
yes, we have both, the Nutribullet is way more powerful, we use it to make green smoothies with all green vegetables. It works great, but overheats if you run too long.

I own both products. I use the NutriBullet every day, and it has replaced my Ninja completely. But then - I just use it for smoothies. Both products are highly effective and perform as advertised. So I would suggest deciding the reason for the purchase, then make your selection.
