Ninja vs. Magic Bullet?

I'm looking for something that will do salad dressings mostly. And, too, to function like a mini processor.

Which one do you recommend? Thanks

In my experience, bullet is a piece of junk. Only blends the bottom stuff right near the blade. It was OK for smoothies but with ice, no way. My Ninja works great- with 6 blades.

Get the Ninja Pulse. It's $64 with a 20% off code from Bed Bath & beyond. Chops and purees great and makes an awesome smoothie. Will do what a processor does except slicing and shredding. They have a more expensive model that does that though. It loves ice and makes a very smooth drink, but won't handle things like carrots or tougher kale leaves for a smoothie. Salad dressing is almost too easy for it! Has twice the power of the bullet.

I have both and I use the Bullet every single day. It is much easier for clean-up and the size is perfect for making my protein drinks. I have found that the Ninja is just too big and clunky and I have never had an issue with the Bullet not mixing something to perfection. In fact, because the Ninja is so big, many times the contents do NOT mix well. I say Bullet all the way!!!

The Ninja Pulse personal blending cups are 16 oz. and the base is very compact. How can it be too big? It has 700 watts to the Bullets 350 or 400. Even on the individual containers everything on top is pulled into the blades. The small cups just rinse right out. You must be thinking of another model. The reviews on the Pulse are great and on the Bullet terrible!

Having had the original 350 watt bullet blender for years and now the pulse, I totally agree with Blondelle regarding the superiority of the Ninja pulse.

I would recommend the Ninja. I have an older one that was the TSV a few years ago and I use it almost every day for something. It is especially wonderful to make bread crumbs from older bread and freeze. lm
