The 1500-Watt Ninja Mega Kitchen System or the Ninja BL770 is one of the brand’s first multi-functional blenders. It’s a countertop and personal blender, and as well as a food processing powerhouse.
This classic product was launched eight years ago. After all those years, it’s still a big hit. Consumers are still searching for the BL770 and the BL773CO variant.
If you’re also curious about it, here are the difference between the two.
|Ninja BL770||Ninja BL773CO|
|a.k.a. Ninja Mega Kitchen System||a.k.a. Ninja Mega Kitchen System with Slicing/Shredding|
|(Two) 16 oz Nutri Ninja cups||(Three) 16 oz Nutri Ninja cups|
|Food processor container and accessories with closed lid||Food processor container and accessories with feed chute lid, plus slicing and shredding discs|
The only problem is the BL773CO is no longer available. Let’s stick with the Ninja BL770, then.
As I’ve said, it has been around for quite some time now. There’s a newer and sleeker Ninja Kitchen System with effortless blending presets.
We will be doing the Ninja Mega Kitchen System BL770 a disservice if we’re not going to explore the good qualities of this classic machine.
Let’s proceed to the pros and cons section.
- Classic design
- 3 manual speed control (including pulse)
- Up to 64-ounce max liquid capacity
- Multifunctional—also doubles as a personal blender, and food processor
- Powerful 1500-watt motor that can crush ice easily
- Tamper-free system
- Dishwasher safe
- No walk-away blending program
- Old product, but there is a newer version
- Can’t make hot soups
- Bulky profile
- Not that easy to use
- 1-year warranty
Ninja Mega Kitchen System Features
The Ninja BL770 complete kitchen system can perform many tasks apart from making smoothies. It comes with a food processor attachment that can chop, mince, grind produce, and process meat.
That’s just a teaser. Here’s a more comprehensive list:
*Kneading dough is only possible with the food processor attachment.
You can do a whole lot more with the Ninja BL773CO variant. It ships with a food processor with a feed chute lid that can shred and slice ingredients. Unfortunately, that model is no longer available.
Anyway, let’s get back to the Ninja Mega Kitchen BL770.
Here are a few things that it can’t do:
Hot Soups—There’s only one SharkNinja Blender with a soup-making feature, and that’s the Ninja Hot and Cold Blender. Ninja BL770 is not built for processing hot ingredients.
Make Flour—The Ninja Mega Kitchen System can knead dough with the food processor attachment and the dough blade, but it can’t pulverize wheat into flour. That’s something that only Vitamix blenders can do.
Now let’s get to the million dollar question.
Is it easy to use?
Operating the Ninja 1500-watt is ultra simple. There are only six buttons in total—1-2-3 speed control, pulse and power switch, and a long press single-serve mode.
Here’s a trick, if you want a finer blend for your smoothie, use the Nutri Ninja cups. The pro extractor blades and single-serve cup assembly is surprisingly more efficient than the bigger pitcher.
Speaking of the 72-ounce Total Crushing Pitcher, it’s a little bit challenging at first.
Here’s what I mean by that:
That quirk applies to all Ninja blenders equipped with the stacked blade system. Putting it together is one thing, and keeping your hands free from cuts is another story.
The blades are not fixed to the base of the container. It’s going to fall off when transferring smoothies without the lid. You can either use the spout or if you prefer to remove the lid completely, take the Total Crushing Blades first.
You won’t have this issue with the Nutri Ninja cups, but still, be careful with the sharp edges.
Thankfully, the Ninja Blender BL770 also has a redeeming quality. All the detachable parts are dishwasher safe, making the whole process less of a chore.
So, all in all, we’ll give it a usability rating of 3/5.

Here’s how the Ninja BL770 works.
That was quite a cheesy pitch from professional salesman. Anyhow, it got all the bases covered.
Ninja BL770 Replacement Parts & Accessories
When you purchase the Ninja Mega Kitchen System 1500, you’ll get the 72 ounce Total Crushing blade and pitcher, a pair of 16 oz Nutri Ninja cups with sip and seal lids, pro extractor blades (small), and a food processing kit with chopping and kneading blades.
In case you need to replace any of those parts, I included the links in this list.
By the way, these are all BPA-free and dishwasher safe.
Replacement Pitcher with Lid
Model #: 507KKU770
This large capacity blender jar can take up to 64 ounces of liquid. Your produce can go up to the 72-oz line, but the liquid part should not exceed the 64-oz level. It’s good enough for making up to 8 servings of smoothies.
Replacement Total Crushing Blades
Model #: 316KKU770
This stacked blade assembly is unique to the Ninja blender family. It’s their ingenious solution to take the tamper off the equation. The three levels of blade make it excellent at crushing ice.
Replacement Nutri Ninja Blade Assembly
Model #: 322KKU770
The brand has another term for the Nutri Ninja blade assembly—Pro Extractor Blades. It’s the smaller yet powerful sibling of the Total Crushing Blades. You’ll have this accessory with your Ninja BL770.
Replacement Nutri Ninja Cups
Model #: XSS660
Along with the large capacity pitcher, you’ll also have two 16-ounce Nutri Ninja cups. It’s perfect for making a small batch of smoothies, perhaps for yourself and your significant other.
Replacement Food Processor Kit
The ultimate selling point of the Mega Kitchen System is the 64 oz. food processor kit. With it, you can mince, chop, and grind food; it’s a proper food processor, if you will. It comes with the regular chopping blade and as well as a kneading gear.
|Type||Countertop & Personal Blender, Food Processor|
|Brand/Series||SharkNinja Kitchen System|
|Ratings||4.3 out of 5|
|Speed||4-speed buttons with pulse|
|Container capacity||Up to 64 oz.|
|Dimensions||9.5 x 8.25 x 17.75 inches|
|Cord length||2 ft.|
|Application||Home & Personal Use|
The 1500-Watt Ninja BL770 Mega Kitchen System is still a good choice if you’re looking for an affordable blender with lots of uses. However, it’s an old product, so don’t expect any walk-away blending programs.
And before I forget, the only inventory Amazon currently has is a refurbished model.
If you want a newer one, you might want to check their latest Ninja Kitchen System. It has identical functionalities with the Ninja BL770 but offers a range of convenient modern features.
