    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.

    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.

    This Fryer Wowed Me!!!

    So I researched a little bit and set mind on this air fryer because of 4.8/5 reviews. I made purchase today and in just few hours I was making my first ever dish in it. It's very easy to work with. Instructions are crystal clear in the recipe booklet. I cooked Salmon in it and I was wowed as how crispy the skin and outside was; and inside was so soft and pink exactly as I wanted. Also the size is great, fits perfectly on the counter of my small kitchen. It's more than enough for a single person but can accommodate a family of four. Also would like to mention that I agree with other reviewers that this doesn't come with bunch of accessories, just a multilayer basket and a crisper; also it's a bit noisy. But still I'm very gladly live with it as this product is awesome. Please don't think just get it, you will be so happy and pleased.

    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'ven'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'ren'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 : @@@@@@@

    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.

    You will not find many companies that produce a product that does what it says it will, and do it every time perfectly. That being said, you might find a cheaper one of these, but not one that works this well. I got this and the first night I was frying up a storm with all kinds of goodies. True, traditional deep fryer takes less time. But you need to factor in the preheat oil, defrosting time, etc for that and you will seem the air fryer takes less time from start to finish. the 4 quart size is good for 2 peoples worth of stuff and makes the chicken, steak, hamburgers and such so juicy I think I over ate the first night. using little to no oil is a blessing and clean up is so quick . I reheated my chicken wings and they tasted better than when I got them fresh from the restaurant. So to sum it all up: small area needed for fryer little to no oil needed easy to clean and store better than a toaster over as it seals in the juices you can hear the fan running, but it is about the same as a desk fan noise. does not heat up the whole house/kitchen making it better for small areas so they don't get unbearable. hundreds, if not thousands of recipes online/video to get you going and eating healthier. Makes left overs come back to life and sometimes makes them taste better.

    THE VERDICT

    Been having this fryer for 2 weeks now and it has NOT rested yet. I LOVE IT & wonder how I've gone this long w/out one. Before I start bragging on this thing, I'm by no way endorsed by Ninja or getting paid by them. I've owned a few Ninja products blenders and still have one that's over 10 years old. They make quality machines. This fryer is a life & time saver...especially if you're a lazy cook. I've been researching air fryers for the past few months and nothing comes close to the Ninja. The basket size isn't the large 5+ quart capacity like the bigger fryers, (Ninja is only 4qt), but this thing cooks so fast you won't miss the extra 1 qt. It comes w/ a crisper that works perfectly, a recipe book and a multi-layer rack. The first night I had it I made wings and I tell you that I'll NEVER buy fried chicken again!!! Yes, they were that crispy and tasted much better. I bought the Louisiana fried chicken flour from Walmart, battered the wings, spritzed w/ a little olive oil and had fried chicken in 10 minutes. No greasy mess, no 3rd degree burns from hot oil, and your house doesn't smell like a chicken joint for 4 days afterward. Because the Ninja uses a ceramic coating on their fryers the clean up is very easy. Next, I made sweet potato fries! Had a bag of frozen ones in the freezer and popped those babies in for 10 min. They were crispier than McDonald's. I tried homemade fries but the procedure takes too long. You have to peel, slice, soak potatoes, dry them...I'm just ready to pop them in the fryer and eat! It has been nonstop air fryer cooking in this house! I hit youtube to get a few recipes and it's been on ever since. What I like best about this fryer is it has a dehydrator feature and how fast it cooks. Frozen chicken wings? No problem! Throw them in the fryer for 10 minutes and they're defrosted. I've cooked pizza, fries, wings, reheated food, fried zucchini, and tonight I baked a chocolate cake. Everything came out perfect! Next up is donuts! The only thing I don't like about this fryer is 30 seconds after it finishes cooking it shuts off. I know this is a safety feature but I always have more items to cook. In 2 weeks, I've used my microwave twice, and that was to reheat coffee. Before I forget, I did cinnamon rolls too! I used the canned Pillsbury ones and it normally takes 20 min in the oven. In the Ninja? 8 minutes and that's if you like them brown. I actually could have stopped it at 5 min and they would be perfect. My house smelled like a Cinnabon factory! I've used every feature on this fryer except the dehydrator but I'll be making beef jerky soon. Overall, I'm VERY pleased! The best selling feature was the price & the size. The Ninja is much slimmer than some of the bulkier fryers and fits under my cabinet nicely. I'm also happy it only used 1500W unlike some of the larger fryers that burn 1800 which could kill your light bill. The outside of the fryer doesn't get hot so you won't have to worry about getting burned but do take caution when taking your food out. Is it loud? My exhaust fan on my stove is louder than the Ninja. The extension cord on it's long so you don't have to worry about being limited on where you can place it. I think I've covered everything? This thing is THE BOMB! If you're wondering what cookware you can use, just about anything you place in a microwave you can put in the Ninja. I went to the Dollar Tree and bought a few 7" foil pans I use to reheat food & bake in. Also, grab you some silicone tongs while you're there so you don't scratch the surface of your fryer. This thing has been almost as good as a kid getting a new bike for Christmas. You will NOT be disappointed w/ this purchase. Happy & healthy cooking!
