The BL Model SeriesThere are several BL model series. They come equipped with a 1,100 watt (or 1.48 HP) motor. This series includes the BL660 which comes with one large pitcher, two single serve cups with lids, the single serve blade and one stacked blade assembly.
Ninja Professional Blender Features
The main container for both blenders has a side handle and holds 72oz (9-cups) of fluid, making it a good choice for large sized servings. Regardless of the Ninja Professional blender you choose, both models in this series will have the following features.
The Ninja Professional blenders provide up to 3 blending speeds and a pulse option. However, the BL660 model is the only one that has a single serve button for quickly blending the right amount of ingredients that will fit in any of the to-go Nutri Ninja cups.
The best part is that you don’t have to guess which speed setting to use when blending different ingredients. The user manual has a speed chart that lets users know which setting to use for different kinds of ingredients.
Total Crushing Technology Powered by Six Stacked Blades
Unlike other blenders that have one rotating blade, the Ninja Professional models have half a dozen. These six blades are stacked along a vertical spindle, which ensures that all ingredients inside the container are processed uniformly.
The high speed motor and cyclonic crushing blades allows for fast operation. You can even blend tough ingredients like frozen fruits or even ice cubes into a powdery snow in seconds.
Well-designed lock-on pitcher lid
The Ninja Professional blenders all come with a cleverly designed lid for the pitcher. The motor will not turn on if the lid is not secured properly. You have to match up the arrow on the lid and the arrow on the pitcher handle. The lid also has a pouring sprout with flip cap for mess-free serving and it features a handle with quick release button.
Is the Ninja Professional Blender Worth Buying?
In most cases, when it comes to buying a blender, you would assess whether a particular model meets your processing needs. However, the Ninja Professional Blender is versatile since it can produce smoothies in large batches or single servings.
Therefore, the deciding factor for this model boils down to your budget since most buyers have mostly given it glowing reviews. Overall, Ninja Professional blenders make a good choice if you are looking to spend a little over or under $100 depending on the chosen model. Thanks to its large sized pitcher and powerful motor, this blender can even be used in a restaurant or other commercial setting.

There are other high-end blenders like the Blendtec Total Blender or the Vitamix 5200 Series Blender, which outperform those from the Ninja Professional line. There are also other bigger Ninja blenders like the Nutri Ninja Ninja Blender Duo with Auto-iQ (BL642).
That being said however, this model is arguably one of the best choices in its price range. If you do not want to go broke over a kitchen appliance and still get a blender that can handle both coarse and smooth ingredients, then the Nutri Ninja blender is the best to have.
