Ninja Kitchen: Mega Kitchen System {Giveaway}

Who wants to win this bad boy?!?  A huge thank you to Ninja Kitchen for sending their Mega Kitchen System for this review and giveaway!


My husband and I enjoy green smoothies and protein shakes daily.  Our new Ninja Mega Kitchen System puts our old blender to shame.  I'll never go back to an ordinary blender again.  This professional, high-powered tool is designed for outstanding performance.  The sleek design will look good in any kitchen and there are so many features to love.

The Ninja blender does it all.  It purees, crushes ice and also has the unique capability to knead dough for bread, pizzas, pretzels and cookies.  With the touch of a button, you can create your favorite recipes in no time.

The system is so easy to use and is well made.  The blade is removable which makes it a cinch to clean.  There are also suction cups on the bottom of the base that lock into place for heavy duty jobs.

The two single-serve cups come with their very own blade and travel lids.  They're super handy for your on-the-go lifestyle.  Just blend and out the door you go!

Watch the video below to see what is included in the system.


You'll enjoy these wonderful features:

  • 2 HP/1500-Watt Food Processor
  • (2) 16-oz. Single-Serve Personal Cups with built-in juicing/blending blades and travel lids 
  • 72 oz. XL Pitcher with pour spout and 6-blade assembly
  • XL Food Processor with 8-cup bowl capacity that will make 2 lbs. of dough in 30 seconds!
  • 3-cup mini bowl with a tight seal trim designed to nest the 8-cup processor bowl
  • Ninja Kitchen System Base & 64 oz. Processor Bowl with 60% greater capacity
  • One touch pulsing and quad blade technology
  • All attachments are dishwasher safe
  • One year warranty

See it in action!


Plus, this Mega Kitchen System is BPA-Free.  That was a HUGE plus for me.  I will not use plastics that contain BPA.


Whether you'll be juicing, food processing, frozen blending or mixing dough, you'll want to get your hands on this complete system.  It's a time saver and super helpful to have in the kitchen.

Giveaway Time:  Ninja Kitchen is generously giving one lucky reader their very own Mega Kitchen System!
