I cook a lot...and I mean A LOT!!! I was initially and have been for the past 2 years - BLOWN AWAY - by how powerful this is and how efficient it is at anything I've thrown at it, and believe me, I've put it to the test on so many things, and it has come through like a champion on every single one! It will LITERALLY make fine, delicate "snow" from very large ice cubes in a matter of seconds. It comes with various blade configurations that you can use for the various tasks you need to perform in your kitchen, from chopping onions, celery, carrots, bell peppers, whatever, which is what I mainly find that I use it for in my kitchen. But I've used the larger pitcher to puree entire cans of tomatoes or other vegetables to add to dishes such as spaghetti sauces and soups. I've made pesto in the smaller container. Probably what most people would use the larger pitcher for - as I do often - is to make smoothies. This pulverizes the skins and seeds of most fruits, and I do like to keep the skins and seeds on whichever fruits and vegetables have edible skins, cores and seeds for optimum health benefits. This Ninja is so powerful that I have found that, if I am not careful, I can over blend easily and make my smoothie "too smooth," and if you make smoothies regularly, you probably know what I am talking about. I loved this blending/prepping system so much, I purchased one for my daughter. Amazingly, I got it for under $60, and to me...that's a STEAL, especially compared to other systems and blenders. I'm going on my third year using it extensively and it is still going strong with no decrease in performance or issues whatsoever!

I received this unit as a gift for christmas 2016. I was so excited for it but was rather disappointed instead. Having to push down on the unit made it hard to multitask while cooking. My sauces and soups were never completely smooth and frozen drinks were always more chunky icey rather than smooth and icey. I tried to make peanut butter with it and it started to become hot and have the weird smell of overheating. Cleaning it was sort of a nightmare as well, maybe there is a trick to it but i always managed to take a nice slice of my finger while cleaning.
Summer of this year (2017) it just quit working, sort of a shame since it the pitchers are really nice but without the motor the pitchers have just become storage container for dry goods in the kitchen

Comments about Ninja Master Prep® Pro System QB1004:

I purchased this system a couple of years ago. It makes being in the kitchen much simpler as it handles a multitude of tasks. Its so simple to use that my other half is able to operate it with ease, and he isnt much of a cook. I love how much control it gives me in the size it chops things like peppers. When this one wears out, I will purchase another.

    I received this blender as a gift from my grandmother when I got my first apartment. I didn't think I would use this blender, especially since I had a tiny kitchen. Five years later, I still use this. I swear, the blades are still as sharp as they were five years ago. I use this for everything! Mixing batters, every kind of frozen drink you could imagine, and also to pulsate certain foods into flour! I love it, and I'm extremely impressed that it lasts! I didn't think I could find a product that is made like products were made back in the 80's!

      Have tried using this product since 2014 and so far it never fails me ever since. It has powerful motor and blade which I like best. Pureeing fruits and vegetables is so easy because of this product. So glad that I bought this product. I highly recommend this because it's a must in every kitchen.

        I bought this to replace a 10yr old blender I had loved. I make a smoothie with ice several times a week and needed a strong blender that was reliable. I was very impressed with this one. I love having 2 sizes so I can choose between an individual or multiple drinks. No issues with crushing the ice up. Love that it has blades on 2 different levels so it's not only mixing the drinks at the bottom, seems to mix the frozen ingredients better that way. My only con is that you have to hold the button the whole time. I wish you could press and it would mix til you turned it off. It works quickly so its not so much of an issue that I wouldn't highly recommend it.

            I probably use this mostly for making nut milk and smoothies but I use it all the time. I love how it's a simple one button operation and how effective it is at pulverizing whatever you put in. The 3 cups that come with it all have their own blades and lids with a shared blender lid for the 2 largest sizes. I found it easy to clean. Most of the blades come apart and it's really easy to just rinse with soapy water after pulling it apart. Between different mixes in one setting I usually just run it with soapy water

              I can't stress enough how much I love this blender. I use this blender every morning to make my protein shake. I use about four different ingredients and 5 ice cubes. All the ingredients blender together perfectly. This has to be the best blender I have ever used. It is very easy to clean and doesn't take up much space as my kitchen is not that big compared to many others. But this product is a must have if you want to make any kind of shakes or dip. It can blend up anything like a masterpiece.

                My KitchenAid blender finally died and so I went on a search to find a blender that can make smoothies and do some light chopping. I also didn't want to spend my life savings on a VitaMix. I was surprised reading the reviews on the Ninja, because it sounded so gimmick and I tend not to trust any product on an infomercial. But I ordered one anyways because of the reviews and the low price.

                The box came well packed and had 4 containers in it instead of the 3 I was expecting -- a 48 oz, 40 oz, and 2 smaller ones. The containers each have full-seal lids so you can store the container in the fridge or somewhere else. The larger lid also has a convenient seal-able pour spout.

                On thing I immediately took a liking to is the way the motor is on top. Once the blending is done, I can pull out the blades and have a nice container for storage. My old blender it made hard to get everything out of the bottom of the pitcher because the blades were still connected. This blender doesn't have that issue. Another positive is the fact that the motor is small and light compared to my old blender. I can pop it into a drawer when I am done, but my old blender had to take up space on the counter.
