Friends just gave us a “Nutri Ninja” for Chanukah. We have an old Hamilton-Beach blender. So I have a few questions:
What, if any, are the advantages of the Nutri Ninja over the Hamilton-Beach?
Do people use the Nutri Ninja for anything except smoothies?
Does the fact that the Nutri Ninja has only plastic containers affect the answer to the previous question? I’m a little leary of pureeing a jerk sauce or a ricotta sauce with garlic in a plastic container rather than a glass one.
(One factor for us is that we have discovered that Classico spaghetti jars have the perfect size mouth for the Hamilton-Beach, meaning we have literally dozens of containers we can use on the blender.)
(By the way, the spell-checker does not like any spelling for Chanukah.)
