Today I decided to share a review of the Nutri Ninja Blender with Auto IQ (BL482), a product I really had fun experimenting with.
The Ninja BL482 blender was designed for people who are constantly on the move and who want no fuss and no hassle when making smoothies. It’s made for busy professionals and students who want to get things done quickly and correctly, and who would rather not waste precious time trying to get it right.
With a price as low as the Ninja BL482 people often get suspicious if it is as good as some of the more costly models like Vitamix or Blendtec.
The truth is, it may not be as good as these more expensive models but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t consider buying because depending on what you need it for, it can do the job perfectly well and it has some really amazing features we will now discuss and review.
Ninja BL482 Review: Overview
Honestly, one of the main reasons we recommend you buy the Ninja BL482 is the Auto IQ feature. In a nutshell, this feature takes the guesswork out of blending.
With that being said, if you want to do things manually, you also can do that. You have the Start/Stop button to run it continuously, and you just press it again to stop. Meanwhile, the timer counts the seconds you use it so you can calculate when to stop.
The motor of this product comes with an auto-shutoff feature that stops the motor when it becomes too hot. In this situation, just unplug the Ninja iQ and wait 15 minutes. After that, you can just plug it in and use it again.
The product also has some other attractive features. Your purchase will include a wide variety of different sized containers, such as the Jumbo Multi-Serve 32-ounce Nutri Ninja cup, the regular 24-ounce Nutri Ninja cup, and the small 18-ounce Nutri Ninja cup for personal use.
The cups are made from a BPA-free plastic called Eastman Tritan, and it is extremely durable. These cups are also transportable and will easily fit in a standard car cup holder. The Sip and Seal lids make sure that you don’t spill your beverages and make a mess.
You will also get the specially designed Pro Extractor Blades that are made from high-quality stainless steel. It is rust-proof and the blades are powered by a strong 1,000-watt motor that can crush just about anything you put inside the container.
So what exactly can you do with the Ninja iQ Blender? You can chop leafy herbs to make your salsa. You can mix batters and dips. You can create a variety of sauces, including simple sauces, salad dressings, and vinaigrettes. You can blend to create frozen goods such as ice cream. You can also make smoothies from fruits, vegetables, and various leafy greens. With the Ninja Auto IQ, healthier drinks are easier to prepare compared to using a traditional juice extractor.
The Auto IQ Feature
Out of all the great features this product has AutoiQ is probably the most practical one.
Auto IQ is a feature that will provide you with a set of automated blending programs so you can get the best results. These programs have automatically configured this blender to mix continuously, pulse, and pause according to a set pattern, and it will automatically stop when the timer runs out.
There are two choices you can pick: Blend and Ultra Blend. All you need to do is push a button and it will do the rest. Instead of figuring out a complicated pattern of actions and pauses by yourself, it’s already been figured. Just use the Blend button for softer ingredients and the Ultra Blend for harder and frozen ingredients. It’s really that simple.
The Smooth Boost Function
Ninja’s Smooth Boost Technology is a trademarked technique that allows you to further customize your blending. With the touch of a button, this technology detects the degree to which the ingredients are blended so that you get the perfect drink every time. Another great addition is the technology also allows you to not only blend but make super creamy frozen drinks, like smoothies.
This will give you a fizzy blend for a nice cool treat at any time of the year. And with this technology, the Ninja will do all the work for you, so that you do not have to worry about any complicated settings or operations you have to operate on your own.
The Nutri Ninja Auto IQ Complete Extraction System
Similar to the “Smooth Boost” function, the Auto IQ makes it unbelievably easy to use the blender. With the help of this technology, not only does it detect levels of consistency, but the Nutri Ninja will proceed through a series of blends, pulses, and pauses to perfectly mix your drink. This is just like having your own servant to stir, shake, and mix up your drinks you for you. This technology is all pre-programmed so you only have to hit a button and the blender takes care of the rest.
Ninja BL482 Review: Final Thoughts
Overall, If you’re looking for a personal blender that doesn’t require you to figure out the correct settings every time you want to make a drink then the Ninja BL482 may be what you need. With this blender, you just press a button and you will get a delicious and healthy smoothie that you can bring with you to work.
It’s very simple and great for multitasking because you can do other things in the kitchen while you wait for it to be ready. There’s no need to press a button or to figure out the perfect pattern of pulses, pauses, and continuous blending. That’s all been done for you with this blender.
What’s more, the Nutri Ninja Blender with Auto IQ is great for people who are constantly on the move. Once you’re done, you can use the blender container as your portable cup. Just seal it with the lid and you’re all set.
We hope this review helped you understand the differences between this blender and some other types, what are the benefits of the Ninja BL482, and why you should consider buying it.
