Yes, this is a common conundrum with the Ninja Blenders because of the design of the blades that go through the middle. I was wondering if you thought it would do a proper job.

Report your issue Only associates can see this. I did buy the Vitamix wrench in addition to the socket kit in order to make the repairs smooth and easy. With my Prime membership, it arrived fast and well-packaged with my free two day shipping.
GOTTA have this wrench to change your blade! It's obnoxiously large but does the job. Ok so, there's a lot I want to say about how you have to buy a separate tool just to change your vitamix blade. Why doesn't it come with the blade?
Or better yet, why isn't it a tool that people might actually have in their tool box or could be something that might be useful for other applications besides just a one time removal of a blender blade assembly? BUT, this is a review for the tool itself, not all of my complaints about other things "vitamix". For the record, I love love love my vitamix. It is a work horse that has served our family well for over 5 years now making multiple smoothies every day. Finally, I can thoroughly clean the Vitamix I have owned a Vitamix for over a year but cleaning it is not easy task, specifically when you need to reach the bottom of the container and work your way around the blades.
The residual buildup has been harder and harder to remove from the blades and around this area. I came across this special Vitamix wrench which I received few days ago. Here some tips on how to use that may be helpful. Removing the bottom of the Vitamix with it is quite simple but a bit tricky: I would definitely recommend anyone who has a vintage blender in need of a glass pitcher to purchase this, and forgo buying a new and costly blender with the cheap plastic pitcher.
I accidentally broke my glass pitcher which I had for decades and used almost daily. I didn't want to be out any expense in purchasing a blender which had those inferior cheap plastic pitchers which I hate. This is exactly like my old one: Now I'm back to making my smoothies, sauces, and other items of interest. Better than my original! A search on Amazon found this item.
It's definitely a different shape the picture on Amazon looks like my original; much straighter sides, very narrow base, clearly square top. It's also "basically" square at the top, but each side has a very slight indentation. Well, I just used it, and I love it! The broader shape definitely seems to allow a better mixing vortex. Made the kids a smoothie and was very pleased - much better blending. A couple of additional items beyond the shape: My original bottom fit the new jar perfectly.
Pefect replacement I received my Osterizer in as a wedding present. Imagine my dismay when my husband brought me the broken jar and asked me if we needed to get a new blender.
I was pleased to find that this replacement "glass" jar was still available and at a fair price. My Osterizer is amazing and everyone comments that they wished the new blenders worked as well as this.
I was pleased as punch to get this replacement jar. It is a quality product with thick glass just like the original. Looks identical to ones I got with my Oster blender I thought for sure I would be able to find these at the regular grocery store, even walmart. I had chewed up the ring that came with my oster. I was making laundry detergent, and I had 4 mason jars to attach to the blender.
On one of the blends I forgot to wash off the ring, and thats how it got sucked up into the blades, and it was toast. If you dont have the sealed ring then you pretty much can't use your blender.
So this is seal ring is very essential to have, which is why I'm so surprised no store around me sold them. So I had no choice to buy from amazon. This is the one you need to get!! I went through the normal review of buyers comments when looking to purchase a replacement sealing ring for our Oster blender. There are lower priced offerings, however I was more interested in getting the best quality and that's what this sealing ring is It is thick and pliable, very industrial strength ish.
We've used in regularly 3 times a week , run it through the dish washer and it has maintained it's original characteristics. It comes in a package of two sealing rings, so I have to find a place to store the second sealing ring that I will remember because it's going to be a long time until it's needed.
This is the one you need to get I don't understand the good reviews for this item and I can't believe it I don't understand the good reviews for this item and I can't believe it is actually from Oster. This is very inferior to the rings that were on my blender and others I have used in the past. They are thinner and narrower. I have been using one light use since December and this morning it split while in use, and a second split is starting.
The contents of the blender went all over the counter top and cabinets. I would love it if Oster contacted me to explain why this quality is so poor, because the blender quality certainly is not poor. I would like to know how to get some of the older replacements. I have included a picture of the broken ring. Never seen that before. I normally do not write a review, but was unexpectedly surprised by this product. This is the first product where the replacement not even original was far better in quality than the original.
My wife ruined the original base when she placed it in dishwasher and it fell to the bottom. But this replacement product is way far thicker. The top one is a replacement and the bottom one slightly cracked is the original. I was wondering that that thick base might make it unfitting in the blender.
But actually it fit more snugly than the original. Looking at this spare I wondered why cant Oster use some quality component like this. But I guess they cannot be spending so much on each component. Fits like original base for my Osterizer speed I bought these when my original base got cracked. I had had the original base for more than 10 years and when I took it apart to get a new blade installed, somehow something fell on it and cracked it. Oh well, I guess it's a good idea to replace all of those spare parts together anyway base and blade since they are the same age.
I'm glad it was just the base that cracked and not the glass jar. This base fit on my Osterizer speed like the original. I counted the spikes on the base and saw that it was six like mine not five like on some other spare Oster bases that I had seen.
I think that the base with five spikes would have fit but I'm happy with my choice because it's just like the original part. Fits Oster Fusion perfectly About 5 years ago my little brother spent what to him was considered a lot of money to buy me a really nice blender.
He was a kid and had to save up. I love the thing. It's an Oster Fusion 6 cup and i use it from milk shakes, margaritas, smoothies to salsa. It has a nice food chop function that makes needing a food processor unnecessary. The base that connects the pitcher to the bottom broke, and i was so upset.
I was sure i wouldn't find a replacement part since most manufacturers churn out new models so quickly. The people with the older ones get left behind if something breaks. This piece is exactly what i needed. Great idea to save a really good product this is a great way to save your Bullet blender.
This makes sense because as the product spins. It will not unscrew. When you are removing the original one remember to turn it in the opposite direction.
You have to turn it to the right to get it to others. Lefty Loosey righty tighty does not apply here. Product worked like a champ with no issues I used the replacement part as soon as i got it in the mail. Product worked like a champ with no issues. I work my bullet really hard with such tasks as grinding coffee beans, pureeing beans to paste for making delicacies, and for making various fruit with ice drinks. Plastic appears to be more durable than the ones that originally came with the bullet mixer.
This is not a bad deal when you consider that you now have spares for the part that would normally break with wear and tear. This part is also hard to find in any regular store or elsewhere online. Worth the Money to Extend the Life of Your Magic Bullet A lot of other people have written about how to install these, so I won't bother repeating that information, other than the fact that these are reverse threaded, so 'Lefty Loosy, Righty Tighty' doesn't work.
You have to go the other way. I will also echo that it's unfortunate that you need these, but they work like a charm! I wish I had known that the gears were going to eventually fail, because I wouldn't have torn up the two extras on my blade attachments I had in my original kit.
Once that clear, plastic gear on the base unit starts to fail, it's just GOING to chew up the rubber gears on the bottom of the blade attachments. I didn't notice the clear, plastic gear was torn up on the base, so I switched rubber gears on the blade attachments. Like new again These replace the gears worked perfectly, and the magic bullet is working again!
There are two tricks to replacing these parts - and there are several videos on YouTube that show you how to do it. The first trick, after you unplug the motor unit, is that there's a small hole on the underside of the motor unit.
You stick a small flat head screw driver under there and find the slot. Then you take a rag and use it to grab the blade to unscrew it. It took me no more than 5 minutes to disassemble and reassemble. They Screw on Backwards from what you think. I thought I was in big trouble when I stripped out the machine. Then I found these, great price and now I have spares. If you are having a hard time getting the old ones off, turn it the other way! In this case it's Righty Loosey, Lefty Tighty!
To remove the one from the base, insert a straight blade screwdriver into the slot on the bottom of the unit to hold the motor in place while you turn the clear piece CLOCKWISE to loosen. You have to replace both gears for best results. The rubber these Blade Gears are made of is much softer than the original part. The original lasted me several years, but these replacements only lasted a few days. It starts to turn yellow and get slimy.
Then, the bags all go into the fridge and wait their turn. In a high-speed blender, pour one cup of a no-salt-added vegetable juice blend, or no-salt-added tomato juice. Then, a half-teaspoon of horseradish. Or, you could actually chop up little pieces and put them in all the bags. So, if anyone tries that, let me know how it comes out. And then finally, the juice from a half of a lemon.
For a bonus, you can actually zest that lemon. So, this is about four cups. Yeah, look at that. Then, you pop in a reusable straw and… cold, refreshing, zesty, whoo zesty!.
