You’ve decided to take the leap and purchase a Ninja NJ600 Blender and there it sits on your kitchen counter. The deal is done, and you know it can liquefy pineapple, oranges and berries to create a fruit-lovers smoothie, transform ice into a slushy at the press of a button and make a mean Pina Colada, but there is so much more this sleek, 3-speed, 1100 watt machine can do.

Mash Potatoes With Ease

Get ready to clean out your kitchen drawers because with a Ninja NJ600 Blender, you will no longer need your old, pronged masher to make smooth mashed potatoes or delectable sweet potatoes. After boiling three white, red or sweet potatoes for about 15 minutes, all you need to do is strain them, place them in your Ninja NJ600 72 oz pitcher, add butter, milk, salt and pepper and blend.

For sweet potatoes, add in a dash of cinnamon and brown sugar and swap in coconut milk to create a mouthwatering side dish.

Make Organic Peanut Butter

With a Ninja NJ600, which scored an 87 out of 100 for versatility as per a report on, you don’t need to wait for peanut butter to go on sale to buy a jar. The Ninja NJ600’s 1100 watts gives you the power to blend peanuts into smooth or crunchy, tasty peanut butter, perfect for a peanut butter and jelly sandwich to pack in the kids’ lunchboxes.

To make peanut butter, all you need is a can of your favorite peanuts, 3 tablespoons of olive oil and a dash of salt. Place the ingredients in your Ninja NJ600 and blend on setting 3 to your desired smoothness.

Make Treats, Like Muffins

Put down your mixing spoon and bowl and turn instead to your Ninja NJ600, which can mix up ingredients for scrumptious treats, like blueberry or chocolate chunk muffins in a jiffy. With the kitchen essential’s 6-blades, there is no need to spend time hand-mixing together cups of flour, teaspoons of baking powder, teaspoons of salt, tablespoons of sugar, vegetable shortening, an egg, and milk. Instead, place all the ingredients in your Ninja NJ600, blend on setting 1, add 1 cup of fresh blueberries, then spoon into muffin cups and bake at 400 degrees for 25 minutes until muffins are golden brown.

Prep Vegetables for Soups and Other Dishes

No longer will you need to ensure your knife is sharp enough to chop up onions, carrots, celery or any other vegetable you may be cooking with. The pulse mode on your Ninja NJ600 will do all the chopping for you. You can even use the NJ600 blender to make a chopped green salad, by placing an onion (cut in half), peeled cucumber (peeled and cut in half), fresh basil leaves, a half a head of lettuce, a half heart of romaine lettuce and a ½ cup of sprouted watercress in the blender and hitting pulse 2-3 times.
