    Your model is 1500 watts, but you might take a look at these negative comments on 1100 watt Ninja.

    If you're still interested, Serenity, I saw the 1100 model at Costco Iwilei today for a few pennies less than $120.00.

    WOW!!. Thanks Greg , I will either get the same one that you got, or the one that tutusue pointed out in Costco.

    I'm sure either way, I can't go wrong with it . Thanks Greg & tutusue

    Just to be clear, I wasn't trying to imply that the one I got was better than the model you were looking at. Probably the bad things people had to say about the 1100 model, they would also say about mine. The 1500 model has a 2 hp motor -- that's powerful! It might handle raw vegetables better than the 1100 one, or mine. (It wouldn't matter to me, since I don't put things like spinach in my smoothies. Yuck.)

    It was interesting to read about how poorly the Ninja 1100 handled spinach and kale. I'm one of those people who loves green smoothies and I have a much lower powered blender. It pulverizes the greens to a smooth texture. I guess, for the Ninja, it might be a blade issue.

    I bought this set of 14 for $33 from Amazon 3 years ago. I think they're great for the price. Mine don't cut well any longer, and the handle of one came loose.

    Never bought a thing from As seen on TV but I do fondly recall the old Ktel album and cassette commercials!! I bought 3 of them and still have them tucked in my drawer.
    If anyone on Oahu is NOT happy , feel free to trade places with me.

    Can't you get them replaced? I thought Ginsu knives had a 50 year warranty.

    I wouldn't be surprised if I could get the one (of 14) that broke replaced. But I don't need that particular knife, so I'm not going to try.

    There was a SCTV spoof where the annnouncer talked as fast as he could to get in as much of the songs and artists included on the record.
    Does the more songs on a record decrease the sound quality?

    On vinyl, yes. The more material you try to fit in, it has to be mastered with less dynamic range (because the grooves have to be more closely spaced together).

    On a CD, there is an upper limit as to how much you can fit on a standard disc (using what's called the Red Book standard) - just under 80 minutes of audio. Beyond that, you simply can not go, unless you are using an unusual variation of the standard.

    It could be that & the motor issue too? IF it is not blending like it should, perhaps the motor is slow & the blade is dull?

    I hope when it was returned, that it was within the warranty, I felt bad for the person that it didn't work out like they wanted it to be. I hope they got their money back in a timely manner too.

    Of course it could be a motor issue but the point I attempted to make was my blenders motor is much LESS powerful than the 1100s yet handles spinach and kale just fine. That's why I'm suspecting the 1100s blade.

    My wife and I walked into the 'As seen on TV' shop at Ward Warehouse and they didn't have either product in stock. Also saying the Ala Moana shop doesn't either. Oh well... just hoping.

    Not to mention Walgreen's. And it's all in one place. Look for the aisle with the little TV monitor, playing commercials of the products being sold on the shelf.

    The best "As Seen on TV product" I ever have is this....

    Ped Egg

    Every time &/or when I do shower, once I am done, I always use that Ped Egg for my heels (because sometimes my heels tend to dry up, & I can't stand it.), then once I am done using the Ped Egg on my heels, I rub some petroleum jelly on my heels & wear a nice clean socks with my slippers (or flip flops) on all day, & let me tell you, that helps BIG TIME !!. The best thing about that is, NO NEED BATTERIES &/or NO NEED to plug it in to some outlet. Its portable & you can replace the bottom part when it gets dull, which is not that often, probably on a rare side.

    I don't care if its TMI, I just love the that product!!!. They sell it for men too, we saw one at the As Seen On TV store, & we got one for my hubby.

    The commercial on TV is pretty funny in it self , but my hubby said he wouldn't recommend using it, why I don't know, I forgot to ask him, personally, I still continue to use the old fashion way (Q-Tips or cotton swabs), which is cheaper any way. no problems taking it to any travel destinations too .

    You can always buy it, & if it doesn't work out for you & your wife, & return it within the time given (maybe 30 days or 90 days), & get your money back with your receipt. :-)

    AND complain about it on H.T.

    Question Re: As Seen on TV Products

    You know...

    I was just thinking...

    some of those as seen on tv products seems really good, & works great on tv, but makes me wonder what they did before the camera was turned on, you know? cuz, when you google it later, you find out from others that there has been a lot of complains about it on why it dos not work right.

    Did they put Pam spray on it (before the camera was on) so nothing would stick to the pan? or what?

    kind of like these 2 pans..


    ORGREENIC

    Stone Dine

    yes granted that some actually do work, but the ones that don't, makes me wonder what they did to make the product look like it actually works.

    I don't know, but I am deeply suspicious. However, I trust the user reviews on Amazon, and when I see something interesting on TV, I go to Amazon to look for something functionally similar. For "green" fry pans, I got these Ozeri nonstick pans a couple of weeks ago. Counting reviews for the similar pans with a smooth nonstick ceramic surface, there are almost 1500 user reviews to read over. Some people find that they start sticking after several months of use, but most like them. I like mine, so far.
