The Ninja Nutri Auto-iQ comes with formidable blades and high-torque motor. This combination allows it to tackle the toughest ingredients - be it almonds, oatmeal, frozen delights, or even whole ice cubes - with remarkable ease. Our evaluations even place it at the pinnacle among personal blenders, consistently outstripping its competitors in diverse tests.

On the other hand, the OBERLY, while charming in its cordless avatar, reveals its limitations when tasked beyond blending soft fruits or fresh ingredients. Its struggles become evident with frozen fruit concoctions, and particularly when confronted with leafy greens or ice.

In conclusion, while the OBERLY caters to a niche that values cordless freedom and basic blending, the Ninja  Nutri Auto-iQ stands tall as a beacon of blending excellence. Your choice should reflect your blending needs—be it simplicity and mobility, or performance and versatility.

Pros & Cons

  • Cordless design provides excellent mobility. 
  • Quite convenient for small batches of baby food and fresh fruit smoothies.
  • It’s very easy to charge the battery.
  • A powerful motor allows for heavy-duty blending 
  • Stainless steel extractor blades are exceptionally tough
  • Hands-free operation offers greater convenience 
  • Sturdy motor base ensures stable performance 
  • Blending cups are included with to-go lids
  • The 175-watt motor is too weak to ensure quick, smooth blends.
  • In exchange to its cheap price is a relatively flimsy construction. 
  • For a thorough blending process, it requires cutting the food into tiny particles. 
  • Some may find it annoying to shake the blender while it is blending.
  • It’s heavy and quite bulky
  • The control panel is gimmicky 
  • The feets’ suction is so strong making it challenging to remove the base
  • The premium price tag might be a high barrier for many people
