YES! I have been needing a mixer so I got excited this woot came up, but then it comes with a food processor (something I have WANTED for a long time) AND it's for an amazingly low price! This deal is amazingly awesome.

This totally gives me a reason to rid myself of the magic bullet!

Arrgh, me too.

That being said, I'm very happy with what I got.

A dose of reality might help. Did Woot offer the refund? Or Samsung? If the latter, you have no complaint with Woot.

Take a look at the copy of the rebate form you undoubtedly retained. The odds are high it states a 8 to 12 week processing period for rebates.

Your threat to go to the NJ Consumer Fraud Protection Bureau is, putting it gently, laughable. Again, Woot is probably not the party offering the rebates - and no one is going to get terribly excited about your teeny, weeny complaint.

But I'm still waiting for my $40 in rebates from two Samsung BT headsets purchased from Woot on January 5th. And I can't get anything else until Woot clears this outstanding rebate problem up.

_S_h_a_m_e_ on Woot! Three months and counting!

(If I take my case to the NJ Consumer Fraud Protection Bureau they'd zap Woot up to $10K per violation, and/or suspend their business operating privileges in the state. Which wouldn't go over too well with Amazon.com. But I'm not a litigator -- I just want someone at Woot to PAY ATTENTION and CLEAR THIS UP.)

absolutely, this actually a bit more like a food processor than a blender at least imo which is great for home-made hummus!

i got one in the last woot and sadly i made a smoothie with it and got a cherry pit in there and chipped the blade up a bit. i'm ordering a new one because i liked it so much though! plus my boyfriend needs a mixer at his apartment anyway. or at least i need one there since he doesn't bake. :/ oh and for all of you ordering (or those of you with food processors) should check out one ingredient ice cream: http://www.instructables.com/id/1-ingredient-Ice-Cream/ i'm kind of obsessed with it, and i like to add frozen strawberries!

We have no dishwasher and wash everything by hand. Dishes are my absolute least favorite chore. I honestly prefer cleaning the catbox to doing the dishes. I have one of these now and I'm buying this one so i'm not left high and dry when my kid leaves for college.

In other words:
yes, its very easy to clean and is the most frequently cleaned 'dish' in our house.

I also bought the one from an earlier woot - note that this is a 450 watt motor and the other (the blue one) is a 400 watt motor, so if anything, this has MOAR NINJA POWER.

That said, I am totally happy with the 400w version. To answer an earlier question, it makes hummus easily and smoothly, and it works MUCH better for this than my Cuisinart mini-prep which cost more than twice as much. It's also easy to clean, or so He Who Does The Dishes tells me.

it also works great as a food processor, but if you already have one of those probably not.

Do you know how foolish you sound?

First, the rebate is offered by SAMSUNG (and more than likely a third party processing firm), and not woot. READ THE REBATE FORM.

Second, rebates typically take anywhere from 4-12 weeks for processing (often times, even longer). Rebates require a high degree of patience. READ THE REBATE FORM.

Third, if your future purchases in life are dependent upon a $40 rebate (in the form of prepaid credit cards, by the way), then you really need to re-evaluate your priorities in life. Perhaps the 2 bluetooth headsets weren't such a smart buy for you after all? READ THE REBATE FORM.

Finally, by bringing this to the NJ Consumers Affairs Department, I believe they would review your case and offer one piece of advice:

READ THE REBATE FORM.

Good Day, Sir.

MooseOfReason wrote:Did anyone mention the negative reviews for the original Ninja Prep on Amazon?

Most of them were "found to be helpful" by a majority of people who voted on them, and the main complaint seems to be that the blender broke after several uses.

I'm not sold on Ninja.



i've been using mine daily to make smoothies and i believe the reason that they were having issues is they were treating it more as a blender than a food processor. with the ninja you MUST PULSE otherwise the motor can strip. although due to the reduced number of bad reviews on this version they may have ammended that problem.

i tried to grind 1/4 cup of flax in mine the yesterday and it didn't seem to do super well with it, i ended up throwing it in my coffee grinder. it might not have been enough though. it did however make excellent oat flour out of oats.

Just got done reading all 7 pages of comments, went to the main woot page to read the description more carefully to decide, and the damn button was bouncing, so I bought right away. Peer pressure wins again!


Thanks for the reviews and comments, wooters. They were very informative this time.

so does anyone have an opinion on this mixer? or know who made it? i'm trying to find some reviews on it but i'm not seeing it anywhere. i'm wondering since it has dough hooks if it can really handle mixing dough or if that'd burn out the motor. i'm gluten free and make a lot of my own breads which means a ton of kneading since i don't have a standing mixer and am currently saving up to get a kitchenaid.

Yes! All the time! I use it to grind up thigh meat for patties, as well as to chop up bone and marrow for protein smoothies. The great part is it makes it indistinguishable from other meats so I can eat out on my patio without worrying about neighbors, etc.

edit: I see I misread "hummus" as "humans". Err, no, I have not used this for hummus.

Unlike other small kitchen appliances that get used once or twice and then put away, the Ninja stays on my kitchen counter for constant use. I love it and recommend it to everyone!

I already have the earlier woot offering of this (the 'blue' one), but this just looked too good to pass up.. In trying to convince all of YOU to buy this, I re-convinced myself.. I pulled the trigger on this, and my mother in law can have our existing Ninja...

Just too good to pass up, especially with the hand mixer.

The wife and I actually debated buying the full price version after watching the infomercial, but figured it was all hype and didn't work as advertised. From the comments, apparently it does.

So happy I got one! Have been wanting to make brioche, a French bread, sweet and buttery and wonderful for breakfast, but it has to be mixed with dough hooks. Nearly fainted when I priced Kitchen-Aid stand mixers - ouch! The pain of being on a budget.

If this hand mixer lives up to its promise, I'll have sweet, yummy brioche whenever I want it. Life is good.

And brioche-honey French toast, which is made with stale brioche (if there ever is such a thing) is indescribably rich and decadent, truly food for the gods...
