Ninja Kitchen System

The Ninja Kitchen System Pulse (BL201) is a high-powered food processor designed for making tasty smoothies, juice drinks and frozen drinks. It is equally adept at making kneading cookie and pizza dough.

In essence, what you get with this appliance is four appliances in one because this single appliance can do the job of up to four other kitchen utensils. All of your blending and dough kneading needs will be fully met with the Ninja Kitchen system pulse processor.

With its proprietary Ninja Total Crushing technology, this appliance helps users to form healthier eating habits with its powerful blades which swiftly pulverise any fruits and vegetables placed in it, thus presenting the user with fresh delicious smoothies and blended drinks within minutes.

This food processor will totally crush ice cubes and transform them into snow before your very eyes. It is simply incredible to behold.

Do you want to make some homemade pizza or pastries? The Nutri Ninja cups serve as processor bowls enabling you to quickly knead your dough to perfection.

Another cool functionality worth mentioning here is the nutrient & vitamin extraction utility which make it possible to prepare highly nutritious beverages with high fiber and vitamin content.

Like many other models of Ninja food processors, the blades of the processor are situated in the middle rather than at the base of the unit.

The Pulse technology feature of this device makes it even easier to use. The blending jar attachment is keyed into the base of the unit by turning it towards the left and once it is locked in, the user merely needs to tap it lightly for the unit to begin pulsing.

In order to blend your ingredients normally, simply press and hold on to the jar. Although, getting to know the right amount of pressure to apply might be a tricky at first but it becomes easier with time as you continue to use the appliance.

This machine operates with an impressive 550 watts which deliver well-blended and evenly-processed ingredients every single time. The Pulse Technology incorporated into this processor helps it to deliver a consistent performance.
