Shoppers say this Ninja blender — down to $80 — is 'just as good' as a $300+ Vitamix, and 30,000+ sold last month

The Ninja Professional Blender has over 41,000 perfect ratings — get it on sale at Amazon in time for spring smoothies.

Is there anything more refreshing than a fruit smoothie blended to perfection? The experience really relies on the texture, which is so hard to get at home with any normal blender that you can find in a grocery store. Since the professional-grade blenders used in juiceries and restaurants can be extremely expensive, shelling out for one is often out of the question. But, just in time for the warmer days of spring, the top-rated Ninja Professional Blender is down to just $80 — a pretty stellar Amazon deal if we do say so ourselves. More than 10,000 shoppers bought one in the past month — might you be next?

Smoothie season is just around the corner, so snag this popular blender while it's a steal.

Why is it a good deal?

According to some reviewers, this blender is "just as good" as a Vitamix, which can cost upward of $300. At $80 (down from $100), this isn't the absolute lowest price it's dipped down to, but it's the best we've seen in months.

Why do I need this?

A great accessory to any kitchen, the Ninja Professional Blender can whip up anything from fruit and ice to veggies and broths in just seconds at the speed you want.

The 72-ounce behemoth utilizes “Total Crushing Technology,” which promises to pulverize anything you put inside, whether it be ice, veggies, fruits or nuts. The blender includes three different speeds plus a pulse setting, ensuring that your ingredients combine into the exact texture you want.

The BPA-free pitcher is dishwasher-safe to make cleanup a breeze, and you'll even get a recipe guide for inspiration.

What reviewers say

Over 41,000 Amazon customers were so impressed with the Ninja Professional Blender, they deemed it worthy of a perfect five-star rating.

"I am a diehard Vitamix person, but wanted a second blender to keep where I rent in the winter," shared one content convert. "I did not want to spend the money for another Vitamix, and this looked good. I liked the description about the technology to crunch ice, because that was my biggest challenge with 'regular' blenders. I use a lot of ice in my shakes. This blender is awesome. Crunches the ice with ease. I probably will never get a Vitamix again, as this is just as good but for a much better price."

"This has a very sturdy base, which does not shift while blending," wrote another satisfied shopper. "The carafe locks into place with ease and does not shift at all while blending, either. The lid also locks into place and does not move while blending or pouring, so there is no need to hold the top of the blender while it is going. The carafe holds a ton of stuff as well, so fewer batches are needed when pureeing large recipes such as soup."

This final fan had just a few notes: "Cleaning is scary, because even though everything rinses off just fine, those three blades that are twisted all around that spindle are incredibly sharp ... They recommend using a dish brush with a long handle to clean it, and therefore, I do! ... When I make my smoothies, I use frozen fruit ... and the crunching of that solid frozen fruit makes it incredibly loud. But, this thing does such a fantastic job that you only need it in on literally for seconds — maybe 10 or less!"

So, frozen margaritas at your house this summer?
