I was in need of a new blender recently and was happy that I found the Ninja Pro blender at Costco. I quickly read the reviews online and figured that if it didn’t end up working out, at least I could return it to Costco since the Costco return policy is one of the best.
I wasn’t sure what to expect, but after trying out this blender, I can honestly say that I am very happy with my purchase.

Everything in the box
When you first open the box you will see the included cookbook and owners manual. The cookbook features over 50 different recipes that you can make using the blender.
Also included is the 72 oz clear plastic pitcher, locking lid with pour spout, and blender base. The blender has low, medium, high, and pulse blending options.
The Ninja blender is known for its total crushing technology. Which crushes through ice and frozen ingredients in just seconds. This is made up of a stacked blade assembly. I was surprised to see how big and sharp the blades were.
The blades are also stacked so that they blend from the bottom, middle and top of the blender instead of just blending from the bottom like some other blenders.
These sharp blades are what makes the blender able to crush and blend through ice and other frozen ingredients. This makes it perfect for blending creamy fruit smoothies.
These stacked blades are also removable, so you easily take them out for cleaning. Just be really careful when handling them, they are very sharp.
The blender lid locks when in use, and then you can release the locking lid to lift the handle.
There is also a small pouring lid on the top which is very convenient.
How Did it Work?
When I purchased the blender I had no idea what to expect, but there were almost 4,000 4.7 out of 5 star reviews on the Costco website, so I figured that it must be pretty good.
I also never worry too much about not liking something that I purchase at Costco. I know that I can return almost anything that doesn’t work out, because the Costco return policy is one of the best!
After using the blender I can definitely say that I am 100% happy with my purchase, and I don’t think I will be having to return it.
We make a ton of smoothies in our house, and our old blender just didn’t blend and crush the ice very well.
The Ninja Pro Blender 1000 has no problem crushing large ice cubes, and even whole frozen strawberries and other fruit.
It’s easy to use and the 1000 watt motor combined with the stacked blade assembly blends the ingredients fast. At the time of writing this review, we have used it daily since purchasing it about 2 months ago. It is still going strong, and we have been enjoying perfectly blended smoothies.
Just be careful that you don’t cut yourself when handling the sharp blades. My daughter and I both ended up getting a little cut. Make sure that when you are handing the blades you always grab them from the top black plastic section.
Cleaning the Blender
I have found that cleaning the Ninja Pro Blender 1000 from Costo is actually really easy. Since all the pieces are removable, I just put the pitcher, stacked blades, and the lid in the dishwasher.
At first I was worried that the blade assembly might be hard to remove, but it just lifts out very easily. You don’t even have to twist it, you just have to make sure you only handle it from the top of the assembly.
This is definitely the best blender that we have owned. It works great, is easy to clean and blends fully frozen ingredients in just seconds. Since good blenders can sometimes cost over $500 I thought that the $69.99 cost of the Ninja Pro Blender 1000 at Costco was a great deal.
Watch for it to go on sale, as Costc will sometimes have a $15 off sale at certain times of the year. Overall we are very happy with our purchase and have been enjoying some of the best perfectly blended smoothies.If you are looking at purchasing a blender, I would definitely recommend this one!
