In this article, I will be reviewing the Ninja Chef High Speed Blender, model CT805.
I’ve recently started using this blender, and I must admit, it’s an extraordinary machine. The first time I used it, was to blend some dried coconuts to make homemade coconut oil.
Previously, I was using a normal blender to do so. In all fairness, that blender got the job done and I’m grateful for its service. However, it wasn’t very efficient. Because I had to cut the pieces smaller, to avoid straining the motor, and the pitcher isn’t very big.
On the other hand, Ninja Chef CT805 made the entire process much easier, as I spent less time cutting the coconuts into smaller pieces. I also got more oil as a result of the powerful motor, which pulverized the coconut very finely.
