What is Dual Stage Blending?

Dual Stage Blending is a patented technology where two blades operate at different speeds at the same time. The bottom High Speed Cyclonic blades rotate at 24,000 RPM to liquefy ingredients into a smooth, no-grit consistency, while the top Total Crushing blades rotate at 5,000 RPM to break down whole fruits, vegetables & ice in seconds. Traditional blenders lack the power, speed and versatility to give you the ultimate, beyond professional performance!

When do I use the top and/or bottom blade with my Ninja Ultima Blender?

The Ninja Ultima Blender blade system has two options for use for optimal performance. Option 1 is to use the Bottom Blade only.
