This article contains the FAQs for the SS100 Series Ninja® Foodi® Power Nutri™ Duo®. This supports the following product SKUs SS100, SS101, SS101C, SS101Q, SS101QS and SS101TGT.
All pieces (apart from the base) are top-rack dishwasher safe.
For the best output, we recommend you use Smoothie (SS100, SS101, SS101C, SS101TGT) or Extract (SS101/SS101C/SS101TGT) with the Power Nutri Cup. Use Bowl (SS100, SS101, SS101C, SS101TGT), Spread (SS101 /SS101C), or Sauce (SS101TGT) with the Power Nutri Bowl.
For best blending results, DO NOT fill contents above the Max Fill line. Adding ingredients past the Max Fill lines on the Power Nutri Cup and Power Nutri Bowl will make it hard to install the blade assembly.
- Rinse the bowl and blade assembly under WARM WATER immediately after processing.
- Fill the bowl with warm water up to the top of the paddle and add 1 or 2 SMALL DROPS of dish soap.
- Screw on the blade assembly and install onto motor base.
- Press BOWL and twist the Power Paddle counterclockwise continuously while cleaning.
- Once complete, empty contents and rinse under warm water.
NOTE: The Power Paddle in the Power Nutri Bowl is not removable.
Make sure the blade assembly is fully threaded, meaning there are no gaps between the blade assembly and the lip of the cup/bowl. There is not an audible click.
Press START/STOP or the currently active Auto-iQ program.
Set the container on a level surface. Carefully place the lid or blade assembly on top of the container and align the threads so the lid/blade assembly sits flat. Twist clockwise until it is tightly sealed. Be sure the cup or bowl isn't overfilled. If it is, remove some of the ingredients so the blades can fit in the cup or bowl.
Add yogurt, powders, etc. to add additional flavorings to your smoothie bowls.
For best blending results using the Power Nutri Bowl, twist the Power Paddle counterclockwise continuously during blending. Twisting the Power Paddle will help circulate ingredients and bring them toward the blades. This will provide thicker and smoother outputs
Smoothie bowls are thicker and spoonable, compared to smoothies which are thinner and drinkable.
- Drinkables: Smoothie (iQ program) + Cup. Extract program is on select models.
- Spoonables: Bowl (iQ Program) + Power Nutri Bowl. Sauce and Spread programs on select models.
- Examples of spoonable recipes are hummus, pesto, and nut butters (thick outputs).
- Examples of drinkable recipes are smoothies, protein drinks, and green drinks.
Press once to start continuous running up to 60 seconds; press again to stop. Can also be pressed to stop a running Auto-iQ program.
The Power Paddle in the Power Nutri Bowl is not removable. Remove some ingredients so the blades can fit into the cup or bowl. For cleaning instructions, refer to the Care & Maintenance section.
Make sure the counter and feet of the unit are clean and dry.
Using the Auto-iQ programs is the easiest way to achieve great results. The pulses and pauses allow the ingredients to settle toward the blade assembly. If ingredients are routinely getting stuck, adding some liquid will usually help. When filling the cup, start with fresh fruit or veggies, then leafy greens or herbs. Next add liquids or yogurt, then seeds, powders, or nut butters. Finally, add ice or frozen ingredients. If using the Power Nutri Bowl, twist the Power Paddle counterclockwise continuously during blending to circulate ingredients.
Make sure unit is plugged in. If the unit is powered on and no container is installed, the unit will display '- -'. The available programs will illuminate after a container is placed on the base and is properly rotated
Remove container from base by rotating it counterclockwise and lifting it up. The display will flash '- -'. Unplug the power cord from the outlet. If the unit remains plugged in, the display will time out after 3 minutes of inactivity. Press any button to wake the unit.
Use a rubber spatula or similar utensil to remove blended ingredients. Do not use metal utensils to remove. Turn Power Paddle a quarter of the way and remove blended ingredients at each turn until all are removed.
