    I don’t think the Ninja performs well at all. the smoothies were not

    Thanks for testing these blenders and giving us an informed review. It’s
    great to know there is cheaper alternative to the vita-mix.

    What’s the difference between a blender and food processor? Do we need

    Hi, I saw in your video the Shark Ninja blender. How did it perform in your
    tests? The infomercial usually looks wonderful. I see this blender at
    Wal-Mart and am wondering just how good is this highly advertised Ninja
    multi-blade performed under your tests? Thanks, excellent video!!!!

    Ninja BL660 is on sale at Macy’s today, FYI.

    I wish they’d offer a wider range of recommendations for price ranges,
    Also, next time I’d like to see the new Tribest Dynablend Horsepower Plus
    Blender included in the mix.
