    WARNING- This is an IN DEPTH review of this machine to help you make an informed buying decision. If you prefer to have a summery see section marked THE BOTTOM LINE
    When I first got the Ninja Foodi in as an order, I was all excited. I was dancing around the house and ran smack into a wall of ,” Well, what is so great about this stupid Ninja Foodie?” I stopped dead in my tracks. I didn’t really even know. I mean, when I got to thinking about it, I was not even sure why I wanted one.

    When it arrived in the delivery, I took it out and almost fainted at the size. It sat like a behemoth on my stove top (on a board) and I said to myself in regret, “What have I DONE?” I stared at this machine for a few days horrified. I looked at the book and was overwhelmed. My God HOW was I going to rationalize the presence of this monster to my very skeptical family.

    If you are in that position right now, or perhaps afraid to get one, let me help you out..

    This is one BIG machine. It is like the large round crock pots before they started making them oval and larger foot print. It has a rack with an additional rack that attaches to it. There is an inner bowl that has a ceramic coating and then an air fryer basket. It also comes with a pressure lid. I will break this down in sections for you.

    There are two books. One is a small instruction manual which has basic information to help you decide what to make and how. There is also a basic cookbook which helps you start with some basic recipes.

    The first consideration is size. When deciding where to put this there are things to keep in mind. You will need 16 inches minimum circumference to put this on for the machine. you will need 19 INCHES OF WIDTH for when you have the top hinged cover open.

    You will need 24 INCHES OF CLEARANCE FOR LID BEING OPEN. With the machine closed it is 14 INCHES HIGH CLOSED.

    When doing recipes, many of them will require you to put the pressure lid on which is not connected to the unit. You will pressure cook, release the valve, do something inside, and sometimes pressure cook again, or change to a broil setting which requires that you remove the pressure lid and place the hinged lid with the fan and heater on top to finish.

    There is an air fryer basket that comes with this. It sits inside the ceramic pan so the air can circulate around.

    This is using the hinged lid and is often used to finish a recipe that requires crispy topping

    This is a simple task for meats etc but I prefer to use my stove for that as it is quicker for me and the machine takes longer to heat up.

    All of these settings require either of the lids and are pretty easy to do with the book.

    Once I got the overwhelming appearance out of the way I decided to try something simple- frozen sweet potato fries. When I got them done, I was shocked. I have used a LOT of air fryers now and this was the best result I have gotten in any of them. There was a perfect balance of moisture and crispy when following instructions.

    After that, I got adventurous and decided to make other things. Here is a partial list of what we have done so far and a quick evaluation
    SWEET POTATO FRIES- fantastic balance of moisture and crisp
    PEACH COBBLER- peaches full of flavor and the crumble crust was fantastic
    CHICKEN, RICE, VEGETABLE TRIO- it was challenging to do at first, but the result was worth it.
    CHICKEN AND DUMPLINGS- Absolutely the BEST I have EVER had and we have used a lot of different methods
    CAKE- done perfectly

    We plan to do yogurt soon although someone lost the book so I have to go search it out in the house somewhere (not bad for skeptics, eh? Now they all want to use it- HA)

    I might want to add here that we have used this for quite a few gluten free recipes and paleo and it works beautifully.

    Don’t do what I did and buy a few cookbooks. They all look like they were written by either A.I. or someone who barely speaks English with just typed out recipes. You would be better off looking around the internet for videos or other recipes.

    It is really big, I won’t play that down. You have to have a lot of counter space and you also need to consider that you will have to be releasing steam from the pressure cooker. That means you can not have anything above the place you use it which will be damaged long term from steam being all over it.

    We are going to be removing a food dehydrator after harvest season to put the Ninja Foodi in its place for the winter. It is really handy to have something which makes so many things so easily and with so much flavor. It is annoying to have to bring it out all of the time and put it away when done. It is very heavy and not easy to carry around.

    So far I have to say that this is one of the coolest things we have gotten. So far, have one of the Ninja Coffee machines (which we LOVE and use CONSTANTLY) , a Shark Vacuum which is my favorite, and the original ninja chopper which we also use constantly. This is right up there with those in performance so far.

    It takes up a lot of room, but it is worth it if you are cooking for two or three people max.

    I will warn you, make sure you ONLY USE WOOD OR SILICONE UTENSILS ON ANY OF YOUR PANS IN THE FOODI. This coating can chip pretty easily so you want to be sure to make it last as long as possible. Be GENTLE with it when putting the different racks and air fryer container in it.

    The last topic I will address is cleaning. As you may guess cleaning this is not a snap, but it is not overly difficult. You have to take the time to do it AFTER EVER USE, however. The pans can be washed. The air fryer container comes apart for easy cleaning. The top grate over the fan/element has to be wiped down carefully once cool, making sure not to leave residue of soap lest it burn later.

    The pressure cover has to be cleaned as well, wiping it down and removing and cleaning gaskets too.

    Although this is large and is a bit overwhelming at first to learn, it is worth every moment. This is a fabulous unit and if you treat it carefully, you can get some amazing performance from it. Be sure to use care with utensils, read instructions, and clean it every use and you will be happy you did. If you have the room to put it, this is a great unit.

    FIVE HUGE STARS. I love this stupid thing and am so glad I did not let the intimidation keep me from moving ahead. The food in this is so flavorful and quick to make too. All of the raving out there is true. This is a great appliance in the kitchen, especially in hot weather when heating the oven is too much. Also, having it in addition to the stove/oven for Thanksgiving and Christmas and other holidays is a plus and helps prepare such a huge dinner more easily.

    I’ve only made a few dishes, but we love it so far. I can get rid of my dehydrator and Instant Pot now that we have this. BUT, BUT, BUT!!!! Be careful with power!!! This thing is a beast and rated at 1760W!!! My microwave is rated at 1700W and has its own circuit breaker. The Foodi tripped our circuit breaker and fried our GFCI power receptacle. It powered on for less than a minute. The circuit breaker it was on also had the refrigerator on it as well. Thankfully, we are pretty handy and replaced out the receptacle so that we didn’t lose any food in the fridge. We just found another outlet on another breaker that wasn’t supporting something large and vital. We live in a new built home so it is not an old wiring our outdated receptacles issues….it just uses a lot of power. We’ve used other large devices on that same outlet, but nothing over 1400W.

    Not a Vine review! Purchased with my own money.
    Update 2/15/2020,
    Was getting a Insert Pot message a few times moved rotated the inner pot and it would go away. Called Ninja tech support this morning (Saturday 2/15/2020 9:15am) got a human, she asked me a few questions and said We are sending you a new Base!! Amazing Customer service! Make sure you register your Foodi! We use this everyday. Still best Kitchen appliance ever!!! And Ninja Customer service is Top Notch!!

    Only use Silicon or wooden utensils in it. It has a nice non stick ceramic pot (Super easy clean up) and non stick crisping basket. You don’t want to scratch that up. Also don’t use scotchbrite sponges just use the soft side of the sponge. Learned my lesson on my old Ninja cooking system 3 in 1
    Update 10/11/19
    Off the hook awesome, even the wife loves it and she does not like to cook! She made baked Zitti with meat sauce in 38 minutes (start to finish) I made Amazing Chicken drum sticks from frozen (big meaty ones I had in food saver bags) 15 minutes pressure cooker 15 minutes on roast setting in the crisper basket with sweet baby rays on them. Crispy on the outside and juicy not dried out on the inside! So Good! really just get one. Also get this to break up beef or ground turkey so you don’t scratch up the inner pot when browning the meat
    Update 9/14/19:
    Made chicken hot wings from frozen came out awesome! Also made a egg breakfast casserole using the bake roast functione in the ninja cake pan from the 3 piece accsesory kit, came out amazing. Wife said she wants that every morning!! LOL

    Ok we have the Ninja cooking system 3 in 1 that we got 6 years ago? Still works but is beat up. I have been watching this tank for about 8 months and glad I waited for the Deluxe version. Just really like the looks of it plus more power. We didn’t have a pressure cooker or a air fryer so I could kinda justify it to my wife (plus I do most of the cooking in our house) Only have had it for a week now but this thing is amazing! Have cooked frozen pizza, Chicken and rice, steamed vegetables and pressure cooked a dozen eggs for 4 minutes and they was perfect and peeled shockingly easy and perfect. Time to retire the 3 in 1 cooking system. This is a solidly built machine!! Ninja really thought this one out! Read the manual with this one and don’t be intimidated. If anything changes I will update and add to this review.

    I had been looking at Insta Pots for almost a year, and kept going back and forth between, do I really need it, or do I just want it?
    Then I came across the Ninja Foodi. I am a lover of all things Ninja/Shark so I said s**** it, and bought it (even though it’s way more than an Insta Pot!)
    I haven’t used my oven or stove top since buying this (a little over 2 months) and I literally use it all the time.
    I’m so glad I went with this and not an Insta Pot, as this literally does everything!
    I’m also glad I went with the 8qt over the 6 qt. We are a family of 4, and this fits everything perfectly. I think a 6qt would have been too small for us!

    Este producto ha revolucionado la forma de cocinar en mi entorno. Los alimentos quedan frescos y son muy rápidos de preparar. Puedes pasar del congelador a la mesa en 30 minutos. Es algo increíble. No hay que ensuciar gran cantidad de utensilios.

    This thing has changed the way we cook. It is amazing. You can cook practically anything in it. I find it great for cooking side dishes while your main dish is in the oven (e.g. making roasted potatoes while you have a meat dish cooking at low temp in the oven). You can rapidly air fry french fries, tots, toasted ravioli, crab rangoon, etc. I smoke Pork Shoulder or Chuck Roast on my Weber for 3 Hours then toss it in the Ninja and Pressure cook it for an hour and you have excellent pulled pork. Add some onions and Recaito, and you have a great Chili Verde. No one will probably ever read this review, given the other 19K glowing write-ups, but I felt compelled to add to the positive reviews. This thing is incredible. If you did read this, I hope it helps you.

    Es lo mejor que han inventado después del microondas, jamás pensé ser capaz de hacer cosas tan elaboradas, tan deliciosas y tan fácilmente. Además no ensucias tooooda la cocina para algo frito, literalmente sólo usas una cucharada de aceite para freír cosas como nuggets que quedaron como de comida rápida. Puedes recalentar comida y queda como salida del horno, con queso dorado como de restaurante. En youtube hay miles de videos con recetas super pro y también para principiantes. Me parece que es mucho más segura que una olla express convencional….. aún no uso todas sus funciones pero ya con las 3 ó 4 que he probado creo que vale cada centavo….. además de que la encontré en oferta prime 🙂

    Reseña a los dos meses de uso del ninja foodi. Es una aparato de cocina muy fácil de utilizar, desde hacer flan napolitano, panqué, hasta comidas como pozole, caldo Tlalpeño, lasagna, pollo, filete de res al vapor con verduras. Ahorra mucho los tiempos en cocina. Con su función de freidora de aire ( air crisp) permite darle un toque diferente a los alimentos sin usar aceite

    This is my 3rd air fryer machine .. I bought knock offs and one that claimed to be air fryer.
    I own a ninja blender/food processor and a 4 year old ninja crock like machine which I use for soup and turkey.
    My friend loves her ninja 4-1 and of course I bought the bigger one 9-1
    I do t know what all it does but French fries where perfect.
    Chicken breast which dry out in oven this was the true test was perfect.
    Moist, tasty and tender.
    They include a chart / booklet for food items and what to press.
    Everything is programmable … easy easy easy.
    I am so happy! Thank you ninja another great product.😊
