From pancake batter to smooth, luscious soups, a high-quality blender can tackle so much beyond just the basic breakfast smoothie. But investing in one isn't exactly a grab-and-go decision. After all, most strong blenders are bulky and expensive, and it's certainly no fun carving out counter space for another big appliance. Perhaps that's why over 5,300 Amazon shoppers have raved about Ninja's small but powerful blender

This kitchen workhorse has a near-perfect 4.7-star rating and the ability to make pumpkin soup, cranberry sauce, and butternut squash puree. With a few weeks to go until Thanksgiving, now's a great time to grab one: The blender is currently $30 off on Amazon.

The two things shoppers love most about Ninja's Auto IQ blender are its speed and power. With a 1,000-watt motor, the blender easily whizzes through tough ingredients like ice, nuts, and vegetable stalks. The Auto IQ programming takes the guesswork out of blending by determining how long your blender needs to break down the ingredients in the cup, so all that stands between you and a perfectly velvety result is a single button. 

A shopper who loved Ninja's Auto IQ feature called the blender "terrific," adding, "the motor is powerful enough to grind ice and fruit into a smoothie, [and] the Auto IQ helps prevent the typical vortex of nothingness that a thick icy smoothie causes… With Auto IQ, the machine stops, allows the icy mixture to drift back down then mixes again over and over."

Another reviewer praised how easy it is to clean. "I use it every day to make smoothies, and several times a week to make soups and purees," said the shopper. "I am on a different nutrition journey than the rest of my family, and making separate meals can be tricky. This blender allows me to prepare my own food at lightning speed, and saving time is a big plus for me! It is incredibly easy to clean, and it looks very nice on the countertop too!"

The blender set includes 18- and 24-ounce cups as well as two to-go lids, so you can easily bring a smoothie on the road. Grab Ninja's blender for just $70 during Amazon's Holiday Dash sale before it's gone.
