Ninja BL820 Ultima Kitchen System
Size and Appearance
I’ve had issues retrieving the correct dimensions for Ninja brand and other blenders. For example, on Amazon the bl773co is listed as having a 20” inch width. That is simply impossible. I’ve never come across a blender that was 20 inches wide.
The good thing is that blenders take up relatively little horizontal space. However, if you wish store the blender in the most convenient way, on the counter and underneath the cabinet, then you need to make sure that the height of the blender is less than 20 inches. According to the information I found both of these blenders are under 20 inches tall.
There are a lot of accessories that come with these machines, you will need to make sure that you have a convenient location to store all of the accoutrement.
Neither of these machines are particularly good looking. They aren’t eye sores but they certainly won’t be winning any design awards. They are both colored gray and black.
The two blenders in this comparison are behemoths with lots of features and power. One blender is more powerful: the bl820. Sure, the Ninja bl773co has 1500-watts which translates to about 2-peak horsepower. It’s a very powerful machine. But the bl820 has the same wattage but it is more powerful with 3 horsepower. That is quite a gap in power. You would definitely notice a difference in performance between these two machines. But you won’t be disappointed with the performance of either machine.
Both of these machines are designed to power through about two pounds of dough in seconds.

Neither of the warranties are very special. The Ninja bl773co comes with a paltry one-year warranty. However, the Ninja bl820 doesn’t have a very long warranty either; it’s only two years.

The great thing about both of these products is that they aren’t just blenders. They are complete kitchen systems. Both come with the food processing ability as well. The pitcher, food processor bowl, and single serve cups are the same capacity.
The control panels are made a little differently for each machine. On the bl773c0, the buttons are flat. The controls for the bl820 include turn dials and switches. I prefer the bl820 controls. I think that they will be more durable and hold up better over time.
