Compare what is it? Ninja Chef Blender vs Vitamix 5200

Ninja Chef Blender is designed for the most discerning chefs and allows you to explore a world of flavor. This blender gives you the culinary experience that you have been waiting for.

Vitamix 5200 is designed to create each and every home-cooked meal. It is perfect to prepare everything from frozen drinks to creamy desserts in just minutes. The Vitamix 5200 is the universal tool for family meals and entertaining.

When you blend for too long at too low a speed setting the Vitamix 5200 will overheat and cause the Automatic Overload Protection to turn it machine off. Ensure you use the high speed often to achieve the most uniform consistency. Blending on high speed also maximizes the motor’s cooling fan to avoid overheating.

When preparing nut butters or oil-based foods, do not process for more than one minute after the mixture starts to circulate in the container. Processing for longer periods can cause dangerous overheating.

The size and shape of the Classic 64-ounce container is perfect for blending medium to large batches. The Vitamix 5200 is designed with blades that reach speeds fast enough to create friction heat, ensuring cold ingredients turn piping hot in about six minutes.

Your Vitamix 5200 can clean itself in 30 to 60 seconds with a drop of dish soap and warm water.
