I just bought one of these last week with the thought it may be able to save me some time with my sauces. I currently have several sriracha themed ferments going and since this blender cooks and blends I think I may be able to save a step or two. It just came to market in September so is new to the market. It does not let you do much for manual/custom settings but I should be able to pick an auto program that will work. I will try it after lunch today and ............see how it goes. It was 99 bucks and is only available at Walmart.

Hope it works out for you. Watch out for warranty issues with Walmart, here after 90 days you have to deal with the manufacturer directly.

I bought the 8 dollar no questions warranty so I should be covered!

Well, I started with my Cherry Bomb ferment that I started on 9/21/18. I chose the creamy soup (#2) program first and then ran the #2 puree program. It pretty well decimated all seeds, cannot see any in the finished sauce. It heats everything in the hot programs to 212 degrees farenheight. Although, if you wanted a lower temp you could cancel the program and then just run the blender manually. It was nice to not have to cook, cool, and blend separately.

does it actually have a heating element or does it just friction heat by blending?

i.e. is it possible to only blend a little (leaving some chunks) but still cook the sauce in there

That should do just fine. :P  :P

 

What's the max volume there ?  Looks like 2000 ml.

It does have a heating element in the bottom of the pitcher. It heats up fairly fast. There is the chunky soup program but I have not tried that yet. As time goes on I will likely try more of the programs and features.

I have almost too many blenders, a few different Ninjas, noow this one, and I usually have between two and four thrift store models that I use for grinding egg shells, oyster shells, and occasionally superhot puree. I just burned out two of them this fall but it doesnt hurt so bad tossing them when they only cost 8 bucks!🤑

Yeah my last blender was 14 bucks and it still works like a champ. I burnt up a ninja or 2. And my wife had an expensive one that her grandma got her, smoked that one too

My Ninja Pro is the only one I ever had that could grind up raw sweet potatoes and live to do it again. Mine all have their own special job to do.

Very true, but, 40 years ago I could not whip up a nice smoothie or yummy coffee drink in three minutes either!

Yes, and fairly heavy glass. Overall, for the price it seems to be fairly well built. I have to consider what it does for that amount of money. It costs the same or a little more to fill my truck with gas if its near empty.

imagine if there were a mini version of this thing that could do just a bottle or 2 of sauce (min working volume ~150mL). that gizmo would be like the ultimate in test batch convenience.

This gets fairly close to that, 250ml minimum for hot blending per the manual.

Previously mentioned smoothies. 2 for today, 1 vacuum sealed for tomorrow(if you do not vacuum seal the saved one when there are banannas in it, it will turn brownish colored).
