Check out my post on the new Ninja Creami Breeze! I ordered it the day it became available! I just had to have it! I've made a video of the unboxing and provided you with my thoughts on the new version of the Ninja Creami!
Ok, so I'll admit it. I have a problem lol. I had 4 Ninja Creami ice cream makers but the second that the New Ninja Creami Breeze was released, I immediately ordered it! I just had to know what was new and exciting about this model!
I was intrigued by the new design and the advertising that said that this new model was smaller and I thought maybe it would be great for people with less counter space or lower cabinets. The design looked interesting for a couple of reasons. There is no outer bowl and the container screws in at an angle. But just because it's different doesn't necessarily mean it's better. So, I figured I'd find out for myself.
Well, today I got the delivery I had been waiting for! My new Ninja Creami Breeze has arrived!! I was super excited to see what was inside the box, small box at that! The box was much smaller than the box that the Ninja Creami Deluxe came in and I think it's smaller than the box that the Original Ninja Creami came in too!
Is the Ninja Creami Breeze smaller than the original or deluxe?
The size difference, or lack there of, is one of the first things that I noticed about the Ninja Creami Breeze. Honestly, it looks to be almost the exact same size as the Original model. This was a bit disappointing because the smaller size was something that stuck with me from the ads that I had seen. But, in terms of height, the Breeze is maybe ⅛th of an inch shorter than the original, and for width, it's maybe ½ an inch narrower. I don't know that I would call that space-saving compared to the original Ninja Creami machine. It is smaller than the deluxe but also does not have the same functions as the deluxe.
If you are looking at the Ninja Cremai Breeze because it's smaller...don't. It's practically the same.
How's the new design of the Ninja Creami lid?
The Ninja Creami Breeze has a much different design. Instead of coming with an outer bowl and lid, there is no outer bowl and the lid attaches directly to the container. I wasn't sure how I was going to feel about this. And then...I screw the top on the container and twisted it into place in the machine. Wait What!!?? Ok! That was sooooooooo easy to do. With the original model and the deluxe model, a lot of people turn the outer bowl to the left instead of the right and end up getting the container stuck in the machine. With this new style, I don't think that's even possible to do. It's really easy to put the lid on and put it in the machine. Easier to do with 2 hands than one, but it can be done! Honestly, I was very pleasantly surprised by this new design. More impressed than I thought I would be.
Let's talk more about this lid though. The lids for the other machines have a gasket in them that people remove to clean under. The Ninja Creami Breeze has a very small gasket around the edge of the inside of the lid. It looks like it is on very tight and I don't know that it's coming off anytime soon. This could cause issues for folks that want to clean under it.
The design of the new lid either makes it so that it doesn't allow ice cream and water to get inside of it or it just makes it really hard to see what's inside of it. There are still holes in the lid but in different places. You can no longer see through any of the lids. So, only time will tell if the updated lid design has helped to keep it clean and sanitary or if it will have similar issues as the other lid designs.
Ninja Creami Breeze FAQS
The Ninja Creami Breeze uses 16-ounce pint containers. But, they are not the same containers that work with other machines. These containers only work with the Breeze.
The Ninja Creami Breeze has ice cream, lite ice cream, smoothie bowl, milkshake, gelato, sorbet, and mix-ins. These are the same functions that the Ninja Creami 7-1 has.
No, you cannot process ice in the Ninja Creami Breeze. You also cannot process only frozen fruit or only water in it.
The containers and lids are different. There is no outer bowl or lid. The processing lid fits on the pint container and gets screwed into the machine at an angle. If you need to stop the processing, you can just push the process button and it will stop the machine mid-cycle.
The Ninja Creami Breeze is currently only available on Ninja's website and is $199. It comes with 2 pint containers.
Ninja Creami Pros and Cons
---Sleek Design- Might help reduce the issues with getting the outer bowl stuck in the machine and issues with the blade scraping the containers and creating plastic in the ice cream- Still to be determined.
---Less expensive than the other models but with the same features of the 7-1
---New design of the lid may help with cleaning issues
---It's super easy to put the lid on and put the container in the machine to process the ice cream.
---The ability to stop the machine mid process in case you selected the wrong button or forgot to add an ingredient.
---The unlock button makes it easy to remove the container and ensure you are doing it properly.
---The containers do not fit other machines. For those that invested in the pint containers for the regular machine will be disappointed that this machine uses completely different lids and containers.
---The inspiration guide still contains recipes that advise to use heavy cream when everyone knows that the heavy cream makes the ice cream greasy and almost butterlike.
---It's not actually "space-saving." It's basically the same size as the original machine.

Would I recommend that you buy the new Ninja Creami Breeze? That depends! If you do not already have a Ninja Creami and have not invested in other containers already, I would buy the Ninja Creami Breeze. It's priced better, has a new design that might eliminate the issues with cleaning the lid and shaving off plastic from the containers. But, it does not have all of the features of the deluxe. I would think that Ninja would likely be coming out with a deluxe version with this style sometime soon.
If you already have a Ninja Creami, I don't see the need to also have the Breeze. And, don't buy it if you are doing so because it's "space-saving" because it's not.
Don't have a Ninja Creami? Get the Breeze.
Already have a Ninja Creami? No need to "upgrade" to the Breeze.
