[Canadian Tire] Ninja® Professional Food Processor and Dough Maker $99

Ninja® Professional Food Processor and Dough Maker.

I am a fan of this for dough making as we have tried so many other brands like Oster, Kitchen Aid, etc. But nothing beats this. The reviews speaks for itself for food processing but I like this specifically for dough making. (If you are a desi guy and chapatis are made daily, gift this to your wife, she will always love you)

We bought it from Ninja website when it was $149 and we love it.

Seems reasonably priced for a strong 9-cup, but what makes it a "very very good deal"?

Just wondering. I would have considered something like this, but my wife wanted something bigger. ;) So I ordered a 14-cup Cuisinart instead.

Don't know how this can beat a KitchenAid. We have that from 16 years ago, still going strong. Yeah, it's a one trick pony.

We have KitchenAid stuff too, but you should be aware that a lot of the lower end to mid-end KitchenAid stuff is fairly cheaply made these days. Like plastic gears and the like. Same with lots of other name brand stuff.

The earlier KitchenAid stuff was much, much better built, but also was often comparatively more expensive (if you factor in inflation).

Not a great price at $285, but hey, at least it's cheaper than the silver one of the same model which is $350. Confused Face

what was your original question? what makes the Ninja one a good deal?

14Cup vs 9Cup
720W vs 1000W
CAD284.87 vs CAD99.99


Answer is, math makes it a good deal. Unless you make 5 pizzas a day.

Yeah but I've seen many food processors in this size range priced in the $100ish range on sale. Is the Ninja especially good or something? I note that the normal price is $150, which is also common in this size range.

As for the Wattage, I've learned to ignore the manufacturers claims, because they're often exaggerated, and can't be compared against different brands either since their amount of exaggeration varies.

If you've used it and compared it to many others in actual use, then that's good info. But if you're just comparing paper specs, that's not the same thing.

Power is not the only thing that matters and comparing them on how much power they have is not a reasonable thing to do. Different motors and different type of motors have different torque curves and the gearing also affects it's power characteristics.
Im not saying one is better than the other. The Ninja is obviously very competitively priced and I havent used either but the "math" of advertised power is far from simple to compare

Response: your Cuisanrt would be a good deal if it's ~179. Reason as above.

So in other words, you're just going by paper specs. That's not very useful information.

Plus, I'm not even trying to compare my Cuisinart because they are different size classes. What I'm wondering is why this is a better food processor than other food processors in the same size and price class. ie. 8-9 cup in the $100-150 price range. (The $150 models of various brands often go on sale to around the $100 price point.)

The before mentioned 14-Cup Cuisinart Custom Food Processor is #1 recommended by Cooks Illustrated and other publications. I also know that Ninja makes good products (blenders, etc.) but I am not familiar with the model in question. This isn't meant as a recommendation either way. Different size/price range obviously.

We had Kitchen Aid 9 cup prior to this. After a month burning smell started coming out of it. Thanks to Canadian Tire return policy. We got store credit at least.
