EuroPro Ninja Blogger Event
On Thursday, September 24, I was invited to attend the Euro-Pro New York Event featuring Robin Miller of Food Network fame. The event took place at the beautiful Mandarin Oriental Hotel in New York City. The ballroom that the event was held in had an amazing view of the city and Central Park. The purpose of this event was to become familiar with the new Ninja Master Prep. There was a group of about 50 bloggers who attended to watch Robin Miller use this exciting new product.
Prior to this event, I had not had a chance to view Robins Food Network TV show, but was pleased with her fun personality. Robin was very familiar with the Ninja and was able to answer all of the bloggers questions with ease. She used the Ninja to prepare some delicious recipes including a Cuban guacamole, curried cashew chicken salad, miso-mushroom soup, sorbet and a yummy frozen mojito.
The Ninja is a blender and it is a food processor and it features a double set of blades. The major stand-out difference between the performance of the Ninja and other blenders/processors is how it handled ice. Using a pulsing action Robin was able to turn ice into snow. Great for frozen drinks and snow cones. After the demonstration, we all had a chance to sample the recipes she prepared, and it was certainly delicious!
I have a Ninja in my home now and have been putting it to my own tests in the kitchen. I am very pleased with the size of the unit. It is easy to handle and store. In my small kitchen, I mostly use the smaller container to chop garlic and onions or make smoothies. I like how the top of the container seals so that I can store my leftover chopped garlic in the fridge without stinking up everything else in there. I will be sharing some videos of me and my Ninja in action very soon, so stay posted to this blog for more on the Nijna.
Until then, I will share a few videos and pictures from the Ninja Blogger Event with Robin Miller below.
