In testing, the Ninja CI101 Foodi stood out as a highly versatile and efficient appliance. Its 750-watt motor powered through a range of tasks with ease. From blending tough ingredients like frozen fruits and raw nuts to more delicate operations such as emulsifying sauces and whisking egg whites, this blender demonstrated its capability as an all-rounder.  

The Chefman 6-in-1, while offering an affordable option with a generous accessory package, reveals significant limitations in its blending performance. Its 300-watt motor was noticeably less capable, particularly when dealing with more demanding blending tasks. The results, therefore, were often just average, lacking the finesse and consistency achieved by the Ninja CI101 Foodi. 

In terms of usability, the Chefman 6-in-1 is relatively straightforward, but it lacks the refined ergonomics of the Ninja. This shortfall, coupled with its mediocre blending capabilities, makes it a less appealing option when compared to the more capable and user-friendly Ninja CI101 Foodi.

Pros & Cons

  • High-quality construction with upscale feel 
  • A generous set of included accessories 
  • A lot of user-friendly features 
  • Excels at a wide range of tasks
  • It can blend frozen fruits, chop vegetables, emulsify sauces, and beat eggs.
  • The motor runs quietly.
  • Its accessory package includes many helpful pieces.
  • The ergonomically-designed handle provides a comfortable grip.
  • Larger-than-average blending wand’s head 
  • Rather heavy
  • The metal blending shaft and whisk damaged our cookware’s surface.
