The Ninja BN701 and the Ninja BL660 are blenders made by the Ninja brand. They both have a high-quality stainless steel blade assembly and are dishwasher safe.
The BN701 is heavier, weighing 3.67 kg, compared to the BL660’s weight of 3.44 kg. Additionally, the BN701 has more modes, including smoothie, ice crush, ice cream, and pulse, while the BL660 only has a total crushing pitcher and single serve modes. The BN701 has three Auto-IQ programs, while the BL660 only has manual programs. The BN701 has a higher wattage of 1400W compared to the BL660’s 1100W.
The BL660 is slightly smaller in dimension, measuring 6″ x 8″ x 17″, compared to the BN701’s dimensions of 6.75″ x 9″ x 17.5″. It also comes with 2x spout lids and pro extractor blades, which are not included with the BN701.
The BN701 is slightly more expensive at £119 than the BL660’s price of £111.69. Both blenders are noisy and not recommended for use with hot liquids.
It is important to note that both the BN701 nor BL660 do not have a digital display or a cleaning program. They both have 3-speed options and a pulse control option.
Jug size is important in a blender as it determines how much food can be blended at once. If a jug is too small, you may be unable to blend all of the ingredients together without having to divide them into portions and blend them multiple times. On the other hand, if a jug is too large, you may waste ingredients or have too much for one meal. Therefore, the size of your jug should be determined by the amount of food that needs to be blended. Additionally, larger jugs are heavier and take up more countertop space than smaller ones.
Several blenders are available with larger jugs than the Ninja BN701’s and BL 660’s 2.1L jug. Here are a few examples:
- Vitamix A3500 – This blender has a 2.2L jug.
- Oster Versa Pro Performance Blender – This blender has a 2.5L jug.
- Breville BBL620 Fresh & Furious Blender – This blender has a 2.5L jug.
- Cuisinart Hurricane Pro Blender – This blender has a 2.25L jug.
- Hamilton Beach Professional 1500W Blender – This blender has a 2.4L jug.
Removable vs Non Removable Blades
Both Ninja BN701 and Ninja BL660 have nonremovable blades.
Blenders with removable blades offer the convenience of easily cleaning and replacing blades when necessary. Additionally, it makes storing or transporting blenders easier since you can easily remove the blade assembly without moving the entire blender. This is especially useful when traveling as it allows you to pack the blade assembly separately from the rest of the blender.
On the other hand, blenders with nonremovable blades offer a more secure and stable setup since the blade assembly is not removable. As such, it is less likely to come off accidentally, which can be a safety hazard. Nonremovable blades also make it easier to use the same blender for different types of blending as you don’t have to worry about changing out blades.
Some popular blenders with non-removable blades include the Vitamix 5200, Breville BBL910XL, Kitchenaid KSB1575ER, Nutri Ninja Auto-iQ Compact System, and Hamilton Beach Wave Crusher Blender. These blenders offer powerful motors for blending various ingredients and are available in different wattages depending on your needs.
A dough blade is missing in both Ninja BN701 and Ninja BL660. A dough blade is an essential tool for baking and cooking. It helps to mix, knead and prepare dough quickly and evenly. This prevents the dough from becoming too wet or dry, which can negatively affect the texture of baked goods.

These blenders offer powerful motors for blending various ingredients and are available in different wattages depending on your needs.
The digital display in a blender offers a range of benefits. It helps to easily monitor blender settings and keep track of progress, allowing you to adjust settings as needed for more efficient blending results. Additionally, the digital display is great for keeping an eye on safety features such as auto shut-offs.
There are many blenders with digital displays available on the market. Here are a few examples:
- NutriChef NCBL1700
- Breville BBL620 Fresh & Furious Blender
- Oster Pro 1200 Blender with Glass Jar
- Hamilton Beach Professional 1500W Quiet Shield Blender
- Cuisinart CBT-2000 Hurricane Pro Blender
- KitchenAid K400 Blender with Independent Controls
“Auto IQ” is a technology feature in Ninja BN701, and it is lacking in BL660. It’s essentially a pre-programmed blending system that includes a set of buttons with specific blending patterns for different food types or drinks. These patterns are designed to blend ingredients in a specific order and for a specific length of time to achieve consistent and optimal blending results. The blender’s sensor technology detects the type and amount of food being blended and automatically adjusts the blending speed and power to create smooth, consistent results.
Review Ninja BN701
Review Ninja BL660
The two-speed setting in BLL660 allows you to control the speed at which your ingredients blend, resulting in a smooth, consistent texture. With the right speed setting, you can achieve the desired consistency for any recipe, from soups and sauces to smoothies and milkshakes. Moreover, using different speeds can also help you reduce noise levels while blending hard ingredients like ice cubes or nuts.
When blending and mixing BN701, a three-speed blender offers more versatility than a BL660 two-speed blender. With BN701, you can adjust the speed of the blades to suit different ingredients and recipes. This means that you can get a smoother blend for sauces, soups, smoothies, and other recipes. You also have greater control over the texture of your food as you can choose between a coarse or fine blend depending on what you’re making. With BN701, your options are limited, and you won’t be able to achieve the same level of precision.
