The Ninja BN401 Nutri Pro isn't just any personal blender—it's among the top-tier, delivering heavy-duty blending performance with aplomb. While both blenders handle everyday ingredients, the stronger motor of the BN401 gives it an edge, especially with challenging ingredients like frozen fruits, raw nuts, dried fruits, and leafy greens. The blender prowess even extends to ice-crushing, a feat that the La Reveuse is simply incapable of.  

Furthemore, the Nutri Ninja BN401 comes with an array of features that places it ahead of standard blenders like the La Reveuse. It exudes a premium feel with top-grade materials, advanced technology, and robust blade design. 

To summarize, the Ninja BN401 Nutri Pro offers remarkable value for its price, making it entirely worth the extra investment over the La Reveuse. However, for those only in need of a straightforward blender for simpler tasks, the La Reveuse still fits the bill.
