    Best air fryer in the market and it has to be Ninja. This is the best help I’ve got in my kitchen, you can air fry, roast, reheat and even dehydrate food for a healthy meal. This 4qt air dryer comes with a multi layer rack , ceramic coated plate and 4 programmable cooking functions with a digital countdown and it includes a receipe book. The auto adjust fan automatically adjust speed base on your cooking function and also has a variable temp. The size of this air dryer is perfect to fit your entire family and the temp and speed range from 105-400. For best results on your first time use, its recommended that you use a tablespoon of oil, also I recommend to check and shake your food while cooking for better results.

    A pretty neat new kitchen gadget for me

    I have to admit that I like this new tool more than I thought that I would. I picked it up because I have gotten to the stage of my life when I can't tolerate fried foods like I used to. In that, this (and I suspect all air fryers) is a disappointment. You don't get the same fried texture. The thing is, the convenience, the speed, and the versatility make up for it. In fact, if the word "fryer" wasn't part of its name, I might very well given this 5 stars. The "fryer" is super easy to operate and cooks things quite quickly. It is also flexible enough to be able to dry fruits and vegetables (which I love) for snacking. Cleanup is also very fast. Now that I'm more used to the way that it cooks, the one drawback it still has is finding space for it in my small kitchen. I would recommend this to a friend with the comment that "Fryer" isn't very accurate, but that the gadget does work very well.

    A great healthy alternative to fried food!

    I really enjoy using this fryer! At first, I was pretty skeptical that food I wanted to fry would taste just as good "fried" this way. But if you're looking for a healthier alternative to fried foods, seriously, this would work SO well. I haven't owned or used this product enough to really speak in reference to it's long term quality or reliability but let's just say so far so good (knock on wood). I guess the capacity of this fryer could be a problem being that it's only 4 quarts if you have a larger family you're preparing food for. But for my boyfriend and I, it's been the perfect size. I know there are larger options out there for air fryers too so at least you aren't limited if you'd like a larger one. Clean up is super easy on this as well. Most of the food I've made was ready in about 15 minutes and I usually don't check on it until the timer goes off. - Very convenient - No mess with oil - Easy to clean - 4 qt. is perfect for smaller portions or couples - Stores easily - Much healthier :)

    Perfect replacement to a deep fryer

    I was on the fence about buying one of these but once I got a chance to try it, I can honestly say totally worth every penny. Its very simple to use and clean by hand with no oil greasy mess like you get with a deep fryer. So far I've made french fries, hot dogs, chicken, all were really good. The chicken got a little dry but I think I just overcooked it. I find the suggested cook times in the manual a bit much for the portions I make for myself so keep that in mind. The controls are very easy and simple to use. I find myself looking for different things to make in this thing, it literally is a game changer for my kitchen. The foods come out nice and crispy evenly cooked on all sides and did I mention the lack of oil grease and messy clean up? Buy it, you need it if your husband or wife tries to talk you out of it, you don't need that kind of negativity in your life.

    It does exactly what it says, makes your oily food guilty free. We tried fries and they were restaurant quality, and with almost no oil to it. Tried chicken nugget, came out crisp and tasty, better than fried to me. She even tested buffalo wings and they tasted nice and crispy (on roast), though it is not exactly suitable for that as it burns the sauce and the core was still cold but I think if we would have defrost it, it would have done the trick. Very easy to clean and that little oil you put it drains below the rack, so that two spoon you added, you are eating all of it. It takes very little time to preheat though it does make some noise doing so. Very fast cooking. We didn't try defrost but it has a setting for that. if you are a fan of fried food; it is definitely worth a shot. Pretty good on handling, 4 Qt is decent size for family of 3-5. Color me impressed.

    The Ninja AirFryer truly is a game changer. We initially purchased this for my mother as a Christmas gift which slowly became something my sister and I ended up using to whip something up almost daily. In the last 3 days since opening it/using it we made some beignets, fish, potatoes fries, and chicken. All came out pretty tasty. If you decide to reheat some takeout food (like I did!) you'll even see some of the oil come out of the food (bye bye extra oil). You definitely need to play around with the settings a little bit, and I do recommend preheating the fryer for about 3 minutes like you would an oven. Be careful, the top part of the air fryer does get a little warm (but thats expected). Cleaning the unit it pretty easy and not a hassle at all. I highly recommend the ninja airfryer and would definitely be purchasing it again for friends.

    We have been using the Ninja Air Fryer for about a month now. It is really easy to use, and comes with a guide that shows temps and times for various foods. We have made homemade fries, tater tots, fish sticks, chichen nuggets, breaded chicken breasts, etc. They turn out nice and crispy on the outside and generally tender on the inside. My son didn't care for the "crispy" Chicken nuggets because he is used to how they turned out in the oven. It takes some time to adjust times and temps to get foods how you like them but it looks quick and is easy to clean up. I errored on the safe side for chicken and over cooked a bit. So it was slightly dry. But once you figure it out, food turns out great!

    I've no previous experience with an air fryer, but this thing is pretty sweet. I've already made a couple batches of fries with it. The cookbook that comes with it shows dozens of options that I never would have considered. It heats up quickly and does seem to require a bit of experimentation. I followed the instructions for fries and I've managed to burn them twice. It definitely needs to reduce some time on cooking these, and above all I think it needs you to toss them on occasion to move the fries from on top to the underside. But at the end of the day you can cook fries with little to no oil and get them tasting amazing. It's highly recommend this to get healthier cooking.

    I had another brand of air fryer but the timer quit working and so I wanted to get a digital model. Found this at Best Buy and WOW! It's amazing and cooks my various foods perfectly EVERY TIME. I notice some companies are now adding AIR FRY directions on their frozen foods. It's so healthy for you and the cleanup is an absolute breeze! I cannot say enough about how nice this particular model is. I may buy another just for a backup in case they discontinue it for some reason. That's how much I love it! Bought the same one for my daughter as a Christmas present. She NEVER cooks but I am getting rave reviews about how much she loves this fryer too! A must have for your kitchen!!

    This is a very easy-to-operate air-fryer, and you know when its working, its not super quiet. The basket is very easy to put in and pull out and the handle and depth provides ability to shake when cooking or check for crispiness. Its easy to operate with 4 buttons to Dehydrate, Reheat, Roast and Air Fry. Please note, its not as compact or small as it may appear in the pictures. But, when you consider its easy to use and a good substitute for an oven, its worth the investment. Most importantly, its healthier option compared to eating real fried food.

    I was putting off getting an air fryer for awhile. One of my friends have the Phillips but it was on the pricey side. Consumer Reports gave this a great review, number 3 out of 10...BTW the Phillips wansnt even in the top 10. Frozen pork chops and in my tummy in 23 minutes, that's 2 frozen together. Home made French fries in about 8 minutes, hardly any oil. Basically this machine and ones like it are convection ovens turned 90 degrees. We use this more than our oven. Completely programmable. Easy to clean. Temperature is accurate. LOVE IT!!!

    4 qt a midsize unit but still cooks a lot a food. I can fit 10 medium size wings one layer high in it. You can double stack French fries, shake half way through and they cook great. Suggested cooking times in manual seem a couple minutes too long, experiment. Food does taste grate with minimal or no oil. Follow initial cleaning instructions. I had no problem smells. Included extra tray sits on top of the first layer of food so you can cook more at once ,but if you use it I'd suggest you shake and stir a couple times. Tray has handles, will be hot. Easy soap and warm water clean up.

    A Kitchen Appliance You'll Use Every Day

    I don't usually get large appliances as they're usually sparsely used or end up taking up space in a counter, but we use this air fryer nearly every day. The first time we tried it on some frozen shrimp and were amazed at how crispy it came out in only 6 minutes! Not to mention roasting vegetables, hot dogs, and some of the tastiest hassle-free wings that didn't come from a restaurant. Haven't given the dehydrator a swing yet, but it's great to know we have one if we need it in the same machine! This really is a versatile and convenient device. Trust the NInja!

    Bought this with the idea of frying food without the oil. Works great!! Have made bacon, fries, chicken wings (plain and flavored), fish filets and pork chops. All except the flavored chicken wings came out great. Times listed in the supplied guide seem a little long. I would recommend trying a few minutes less and keep checking them during cooking. Make sure to pre-heat 1st. Great way to fry foods without the oil. Would recommend. Have not tried the roasting or dehydrating method yet but I am sure they will work fine. We have several other Ninja products and they work great.

    Received my Ninja Air Fryer - all I can say is that I wish I would have gotten one sooner! Excellent value for the money. First meal was chicken wings. Fast, delicious, and easy clean up. No more spending money on take out wings! Very pleased! Cooks everything nice and crispy. Was never really big on using a lot of oil so this is amazing for anyone trying to reduce their oil intake and be more healthy. The only drawback that I have run across is that it is very large in diameter and requires a lot of cabinet or pantry space to store it.

    I am very happy with my purchase of this ninja air fryer, specifically picked this brand because of the great reputation. I’m very pleased with the way it works. It’s amazing how quick it cooks and this is great for anyone who is trying to cut down on fat in their diet, but still likes the taste of fried foods without all the oil! it will be great this summer to use instead of heating up the house with the oven.

    I’ve had it for a couple of weeks now & have used it at least 5 or 6 times a week. I’ve used all of the functions, air fry, roast, dehydrate & the reheat. We’ve air fried wings, chicken breasts, meatballs, pork tenderloins, bacon, & of course hand cut fries & potato chips. We’ve also roasted a roast beef, dehydrated banana chips & reheated leftovers. My only complaint if I had to pick one is the cooking capacity. Even though it’s fairly large for an air fryer, most items you can’t cook a lot at a time. If you have a small family, 1-3, it’s perfect.

    This is great, I make chicken nuggets, frozen mini pizza, croquettes, arepas, stuffed chicken and a whole bunch of items. It is fast and things come out crispy. I am sure there are probably better ones and ones that are worse, but I have zero complaints about this unit. The tray and crisping rack is dishwasher safe. Simple use that my son can use it without messing it up or hurting himself. And I love to experiment. Gotta ask yourself, can I make this better by putting in the air fryer, and the answer is usually yes.

Perfect for quick snacks such as crispy fries, onion rings and breaded chicken tenders, croquetas, or fish sticks. Super quick to cook and clean! I gave one to my daughter as a house warming present and it’s become her favorite kitchen appliance too!
