Auto-iQ™ programs combine unique pulsing, blending, and pausing patterns that do
the work for you! Get great results every time with no guesswork required! No more
standing over a blender, simply press a button and get the time you need to get other
things done.
Auto-iQ™ Frozen Drinks/Smoothies: This program is designed for
VEGGIES
creating delicious drinks in our 72-ounce Pitcher. Our stacked blades will crush ice,
frozen fruits and vegetables in seconds, giving you a refreshing icy beverage!
Auto-iQ™ Puree:
This program is designed for making foods such as dips,
hummus, baby food, or soups. Both jar configurations can be used with this
setting. Use the Blender Pitcher for larger batches or the Nutri Ninja® Cups for smaller
portions.
Auto-iQ™ Blend: This program is specifically designed for our Nutri Ninja
®
Cups. The Pro Extractor Blades™ for the Nutri Ninja® Cups spin much faster, giving you
super smooth results, every time. Use this setting for Super Juices that use fresh or
softer ingredients.
Auto-iQ™ Ultra Blend:
FRUIT
LIQUID
ICE
This program is specifically designed for our Nutri
Ninja® cups. The Pro Extractor Blades™ for the Nutri Ninja® Cups spin much faster,
giving you super smooth results, every time. Use the ULTRA BLEND setting for harder
ingredients such as frozen fruits or vegetables, ice, seeds, and more.
Auto-iQ™ Pulse:
This is an enhanced feature
to our existing pulse function. Auto-iQ™ Pulse offers
greater control to help prevent over processing or
over blending. Simply, hold down the button and
our blades will run at a high speed for a quick burst
of power to break through ice, or chop vegetables.
When filling your Nutri Ninja® cups, we recommend that you start with adding your fresh
fruits or vegetables first.
If you’re using powders, seeds, nuts, or other dry ingredients, put them in next.
Afterwards, add frozen items or ice. Finally, pour in any juice, water, or other liquids as
desired.
Remember to securely tighten the Pro Extractor Blades™ and do not overfill
the cups. Once the Pro Extractor Blades™ has been securely assembled to the cup,
flip the cup over in order to attach to the base, as shown above.
