Appearance and Size
Ninja Nutri Blender System BL682
Full size blenders from the Ninja line have a common look and these two models are no different. Both of these units are similar in color too – light and dark grays and black. Both have a chrome accent border that catches the eye. But overall, I’d say that the bl682 is the better looking of the two.
In fact the Ninja bl682 looks modern which is surprising considering that the bl770 has the higher model number (usually the later and more updated looking machine is accompanied by a higher model number). So, don’t be fooled. I think that the bl770 looks kind of bland and dated.
Both of these units, with an extra-large blender jar, have a large footprint. The bases for both machines is around the same, about 10 x 8. So, don’t base the size so much around the units look in the pictures. The weight for these machines is roughly the same as well, around 10 pounds.
There are many users who are satisfied with the performance of either of these machines. Each one has a 2-horsepower or 1500-watt motor. So as you can see, they are both very powerful. At the 1500-watt motor range you start to see much better performance out of blenders. This is the watt range that you see on the high-end blenders like BlendTec.
The Nutri Ninja bl682 has the better technology between these two blenders. It has what the Ninja brand has coined as Auto-iQ technology. Where 770 will just blend at the speed that you put in on, the 682 is intuitive.
The 682 has different programs like frozen drinks, blend, ultra-blend, and food puree that feature the auto-iq. The Auto-IQ feature works by combining timed pulses and blending and pausing patterns. This useful feature helps you to power through pretty much whatever you throw at it – fruits, vegetables, seeds, ice.
Both units have what is referred to as total crushing blades. They are capable of turning ice into snow, a feat that is usually a sign of a very powerful blender.
