Ninja vs Vitamix: How Do They Compare?

At Public Kitchen Supply customers are often curious about brand differences. Two brands that are continuously questioned and compared are the Ninja Blenders versus the Vitamix Blenders. While both Vitamix and Ninja Blenders have desirable abilities, you need to look at the situation in which they will be used most often, commercial or residential? In this blog we’ll break down some of the most noticeable difference between the two brands.
The biggest difference between Vitamix Blenders and the Ninja Blender is that Vitamix offers both commercial and residential options whereas Ninja Blenders only offers residential. This is an outstanding difference because commercial products are designed to last much longer than residential as they typically use higher quality materials. In cookware, commercial merchandise is made for restaurants that require them to be carefully tested for kitchen safety. Residential equipment are not put under the same scrutiny. Because commercial grade appliances are usually a higher quality product, they tend to be more expensive. When comparing the price of the Vitamix 32 oz. Drink Machine to Ninja’s Mega System Blender there is a wide gap in cost, obviously making one much more affordable for an home user rather than a commercial business. Although commercial products may initially cost more, it’s important to realize residential products are designed to be used intermittently rather than all day every day.

In order to better understand the cost difference between these two blenders, their design and makeup must be analyzed. For example, The Quiet One Vitamix Blender is notably 4 times quieter than the Ninja Ultimate Blender. Vitamix designs their blenders to have a wide range in speed control providing a greater selection for precise recipes, perfect for smoothie shops that have many different recipes in rotation. The Ninja Mega System Blender only has three speeds, which is all that a home-user typically utilizes. While Ninja Blender’s manufacturer, Euro-Pro, encourages consumers to use their blender for many different culinary tasks such as: dough mixing, crushing ice, pureeing, processing food and kneading dough, home-users, once again are more apt to try different things with their less-costly blender, especially when they may not be able to afford a different appliance for each of those tastes. Vitamix, on the other hand, provides just sauce and smoothie recipes for their blenders.
One of the strongest indicators when deciding between two like products is the warranty. If your Vitamix breaks within seven years of purchase it will be repaired, replaced, and taken care of by the manufacturer. Furthermore you can purchase an extended warranty for your Vitamix blender, offered in an additional three years of extended protection. Euro-Pro offers a limited warranty lasting for one single year for their Ultimate Ninja Blender. Euro-Pro will repair or replace the Ninja Blender if it has been used in normal household use within the one year, free of charge. Again, while there is a big difference in warranties, you again have to realize the initial cost difference as well as the targeted user.
When comparing the Ninja Blender to Vitamix Blenders it comes down to what you need a blender for. One is commercial, one is residential. While most Vitamix Blenders are more expensive than the Ninja Blender they are undoubtedly designed for more frequent use. Vitamix’s commercial quality, versatility, and warranty is designed for use in a restaurant or high traffic spot whereas Ninja Blenders should be used in a home setting.
