I LOVE MY Ninja Master Prep for the Kitchen

by Briana on November 19, 2009 · 9 comments

Ninja Master Prep. Oh, where do I start. I love my Ninja Master Prep, oh so much.

Seriously. Before I attended the Ninja launch in September, I was burnt out of cooking from scratch. After watching Robin Miller whip up meals quickly and efficiently with the Ninja Master Prep, I was inspired to start cooking more home made meals. This is healthier and inexpensive for my family.

Many of you know I stopped eating meat back in the early spring. I haven’t missed it a bit. However, I’ve been relying on some bad food choices even without meat. So I’ve been trying to come up with some of my favorite frozen/restaurant favorites to make at home.

I love the frozen black bean burgers. However, these are costly and rarely go on sale. I found this recipe online that I decided I would try. Of course, I decided to use the Ninja to chop up the things I needed for the recipe such as the onions and black beans. I’m still developing the perfect recipe for consistency reasons but the finished product was tasty!

For my black bean burgers, I like to add guacamole as a spread/topping. So of course, I used the Ninja to make my own from scratch.

Simply peel and pit the guacamole, add the spices you desire, and pulse for a few seconds. Then viola, you have yummy homemade guacamole for a fraction of store bought prices. (I was able to get my Avocados for just $1 each and it only takes a one to two for my family at a time.)

Another thing I’ve been using the Ninja for is to grate my own cheese. It literally takes 30 seconds to shred a couple of cups of cheese. This is a money saver because I can now buy big blocks of cheese and it is healthier because the cheese isn’t processed before hand. See:


I’m finding myself relying on the Ninja for more and more. Not just for big cooking days either but for smaller items because it is so quick to use.

Basically, you just put whatever you need in either the 48 oz. Prep Pitcher or 16 oz. Master Prep Bowl, place the splash guard on the product, and then insert the Master Pod. Pulse until desired effect is achieved. It is kind of a learning process as you really don’t need to pulse very long for most foods. I’ve used it for onions, mushrooms, spinach, chicken, and even ground beef to get rid of the chunks and make it fine!

I had a small 4 cup food processor before this and rarely used it. It was just such a pain to get all the pieces out and figure out exactly how to insert everything properly. The Ninja is so much easier to use.

So far, I haven’t found anything I wouldn’t use the Ninja for. I know Robin (yes, we are on a first name basis) did mention that there is only a few reasons she wouldn’t use it and mainly if you wanted something sliced. It doesn’t slice. It really is a Ninja!

Bargain Briana Review Disclosure: I was sent a Ninja Kitchen after a sponsored trip to New York for the Ninja Kitchen Launch. All opinions contained are all my own and was not influenced by free goodies. Though, I would have never tried this had they not sent it to me so in some way I was influenced by the fact of just having it. But seriously, this is one of the greatest products ever. You can ask anyone who happens to come over while I’m cooking!

My girlfriend wants one of the ninjas for christmas. We were wondering if you can whip with it. She likes the magic bullet because it comes with a whipping blade but once she saw the ninja she thought about asking for it instead of the magic bullet. Any help on this matter would be great.

I got my NINJA last week at Target. I threw away my Magic Bullet the next morning! I love this  machine!! It really really works! Even better than the infomerchal. Instead of using Ice Ive been using ice cube trays to freeze the fruit liquid and anything else that I put in it except for cheese or eggs. Go to the other web sites for more info on this incredible machine!! I cant say enough good things about it.. It is truly the very best machine of its kind I have ever found and trust me, Ive been shopping and getting these type of products for over 40 years!  Mike

Thank you for the picture of the cheese! I picked up three 1 lb blocks of cheese today @ walmart and I'm hoping to do exactly what you just showed me in the picture.

This afternoon, I made homemade salsa, then hummus right after that, and then, had an impromptu dinner by mixing about 1/2 cup of the hummus with a can of tuna and it was dinner for two. Amazing gadget! I picked up some peanuts, so later on, I'll be trying out some peanut butter.
