    My new favorite appliance...and obsession

    Posted .

    I've owned a lot of "indoor, smoke free, nonstick" grills over my lifetime. Most were much more hype than result, often falling well short of expectations. This grill is another story. Right out of the box, I went right at it. Grilled lamb, chicken breasts, burgers, and pork chops. I do a lot of meal prepping, so it's very helpful to be able to cook in batches. This grill has cut my time prepping in half. The grill does indeed sear, and all the drippings fall directly into the pan below. The grill plate can be tricky to completely clean because of the grooves, but the included brush helps. As for the other features, I have only tried the air crisping feature. It works great. I would even say it crisps better than my Cuisinart air fryer, in terms of texture. The only downside is the time can be daunting at first glance. There is a pre-heat timer, and then actual cooking time. Luckily, all of my tests on the crisper cooked a bit faster than the directions noted, so we were snacking in no time. This included crinkle cut fries, sweet potato fries, tater tots and chicken nuggets. All turned out fantastic. Mentioned before, but I want to reiterate, cleaning is relatively simple and easy. the drippings pan rinsing out with little effort. Also, as claimed, I have yet to notice any smoke which is unbelievable when you see how much "mileage" I've been putting on it. My next challenge will be corn on the cob. Can't wait. I also will be purchasing the other accessories to try dehydrating and the griddle. The only negative I have is that if you are doing batches, and allow the grill to turn off for even just 2 minutes, you may have to go through another pre-heating cycle. Not detrimental, but can be irritating at times. Also, to add on to timer, I wish it had a midway alarm. Some meats require you to flip during cooking. So far, I haven't noticed a setting where I can be warned halfway during time, so I just set an alarm through Google. There may be a setting, but I haven't discovered it yet. Other than that, what a great grill! Definitely recommend to those who ove grilled foods without all the setup/breakdown hassle.

    I seen this product on a informercial and when googled it and found out it was at best buy, I had to go get it. I am very satisfied with this purchase. I havent used any other function but the grill so far, but i love how my food turned out. I have been buying meats that i have never bought before just to try on the indoor grill. I LOVE IT. MY FAMILY MAY NOT LOVE IT, BECAUSE I TAKE PICTURES OF THE FOOD ALL THE TIME and send it to them. This was a great buy! If I had one thing to say negative...it would be to have to brush bristles a little longer to get in the tighter grooves for cleaning. Thanks ninja

    I'm the worst cook ever. Seriously. I mistook a small beet for a red potato. I burned ramen so much so that I had to throw the pan away. But since my mom got me this as an early Christmas gift, I've only managed to mess one dish up (bacon i left on crisp for too long because i think i know better than the instructions). Seriously, this air fryer roaster grill combo is awesome. I accidentally smoked out my house with the grill function but again, I'm terrible with instructions and used an oil with a low smoking point. Or high smoking point. I don't know. I used olive oil and i was later olive oil gets smokey and isn't the best to use in this thing. I love how fast it warms up, how easy it is to clean. It's like a microwave for grownups. Love love love my new kitchen buddy! He's a big boy so expect to lose some counter space.

    I’m temporarily living in an apartment while we look for a new home. Rules restrict us from having an outdoor grill so I was looking for a good way to cook steak and get a similar result. This Ninja Foodi works great for that effort and produced a delicious result!

    Ninja products always well made

    Posted .
    Pros mentioned:
    Cooking, Steak
    Cons mentioned:
    Grill plates, Space

    One thing I can always say, well okay , maybe two. Ninja products are always well made, but they are always big and heavy. This is true of the Grill. This is meant to replace a tabletop grill/griddle that I have enjoyed. My plan was to move the old grill out of my cabinet and put the Ninja in it’s place. Nope, the Ninja will not fit. Too big, and more importantly, too heavy to lift. Okay, so the Ninja is an air fryer, as well as a grill. So it will take the place of the Ninja Foodi that sits on my counter. I rarely use the pressure cooker function and I have slow cookers that I can use in its place. The Foodi moved to a lower cabinet. The first thing we cooked were French fries in the air fryer. They browned beautifully and cooked perfectly. The book recommends shaking the basket to get the fries evenly browned. No don’t do that. The basket sits firmly inside the griller and I found it difficult to get to. I burned the back of my fingers, so I will opt to use a wooden fork. Be sure to read the directions to fit the pieces in the griller. There is a “pot” that fits inside the griller and to air fry another pot fits inside that pot. After my fries were cooked, we grilled a beautiful ribeye steak. I removed the air fry “pot” and inserted the extremely heavy grill plate, used the touch pad to select the grill function, temp and time. They recommend that you turn the steak a few time to ensure even cooking and of course you have to flip it to cook both sides. My old grill cooked both sides at once, albeit not as evenly. The steak turned out perfectly. The grill marks were much better than my old grill. I should also mention that each time you open the grill to flip a steak or stir fries, the timer stops and restarts when you close the lid. I found that I had to reduce the recommended cook times since I like my steak rare and the French fries browned quickly. Also I forgot to mention that the grill preheats after you program your cook time/temp/method. It seemed to take a while and you aren’t supposed to put your food in till it shows “food” on the touch panel menu. Our food cooked perfectly. I did have a hard time keeping the fries warm while we waited for the steak to preheat and cook. Cleanup is cumbersome. You have to wash that inner pot, the air fryer basket and the grill plate. My dishwasher is tiny, so the only thing I could put in it was the grill plate and it took up a lot of space. Hand washing the grill plate didn’t work because I couldn’t get between the grill ridges. The good news is that all of the pieces are nonstick. This thing cooked two great meals, pork chops were the next day. It was easy to use and grill cooks better than my other grill by a good bit. Clean up was a bit annoying because of the inner pot that is required no matter what method of cooking you use. All in all, if you have counter space this is a great grill and the air fryer worked great as well. Have not tried the dehydrator but might think about trying some of the fruit recipes in the cookbook.

    This is very well built, and does a great job for a smaller group of people. The only draw back is the amount of space for large amounts of food. Everything we have tried from brats and fries to bbq chicken breast has turned out awesome.

    Quick, convenient and authentic grilling is the biggest surprise of the Ninja 5in1. This is a go to for our family, nearly daily. It does an excellent job air-frying with more capacity than my stand alone air-fryer. This is a countertop appliance unless you are looking for a workout putting it away after use. It's takes a larger amount of space and it's heavy. 4 out of 5 due to its size, parts structure ( it's not as obvious that you put it back together wrong until you've done it already) and how loud it is - we literally refer to it as starting up the plane engines when we turn it on. But, I love what it can do In short order, so it will continue to be on my counter and used regularly for countless more meals to come.

    If you want a fast dinner, grill steaks, chicken thighs are done in minutes. I would rather have my fries the traditional way as air frying seems to take a lot longer.

    This electric air grill is the best kitchen gadget we have ever owned. We use it 3-4 times a week to make quick and easy meals. So far we have grilled chicken breast, steaks, salmon, french fries, bacon, sausages and made beef jerky with the dehydration racks we ordered a couple after purchase. Buy it you will love it.

    Fantastic & Versatile Cooking Machine

    Posted .
    Pros mentioned:
    Cleaning, Cooking, Ease of use

    === Summary === The Ninja Foodi 5-in-1 Indoor Grill is one awesome cooking machine. It looks sleek and modern sitting on a counter, it is simple & easy to operate, and most importantly, churns out well-cooked food. In addition, clean up is fast and easy. It's another Win from Ninja. _____ *Pros: -Sleek and modern-looking design. -Excellent build quality and materials. -Ergonomic and easy to handle. -Easy to operate. -Four different grill cooking temperatures. -Food comes out well-cooked in a predictable fashion. -"Cyclonic" air circulation really works & food is cooked evenly on both sides. -Air crisping food is healthier for you. -Comes with a useful & informative user manual & settings suggestions. -Low- to no smoke while cooking. -Easy to take apart and clean. _____ *Neutral: -Can't grill at set temperature with the lid open. Lid must be closed. _____ *Cons: -None ==== Design & Build ==== The Ninja Foodi 5-in-1 grill is a well-built cooking machine that looks sleek and is very easy to operate. All the buttons are well-lit, easy to read, and button operations are responsive with no lag. When you first select a cooking function, the machine will pre-select a temperature for you. Depending on what you're cooking and the weight/amount of the food item, you just increase or lower the cooking temperature and time using the Up and Down arrow buttons. Then just press the Start/Stop button and wait until it chimes to let you know that the cooking has finished. So simple and easy. Build quality and materials are impeccable and the machine is also ergonomically designed for easy handling. It is kind of heavy but my petite wifey who weighs around 105 lbs had no problem lifting it up onto our dining room table. Cleanup is also easy as well. Thanks to its coating and the included brush, all the food matter collected on the grill and the pot underneath wash off easily. Just don't use abrasive sponges. The Foodi 5-in-1 grill is an handsome addition to our kitchen. ==== Performance ==== This thing can cook! Out of the four functions offered, we found ourselves using the Grill and Air Crisp functions the most. The Grill function was used to cook up some New York Strip steaks as well as some thin-cut Korean beef brisket meat. The Air Crisp function was used to make some curly french fries. In both scenarios, the food came out perfectly and tasted wonderful. To our great surprise, there was no perceptible smoke coming out of the machine, just heat waves. Whatever technology is being used, it is wonderful that smoke can be filtered out like that. Another touted feature, the "Cyclonic" air circulation, also performed well and as advertised. The meat was evenly cooked on both sides to our satisfaction. You should still flip the steak over but it isn't as critical and necessary thanks to the Cyclonic heat circulation. The grill comes with a very useful user manual that contain charts and diagrams that list suggested cooking temperatures and times for different types of food as well as how to use the different functions of the 5-in-1 (e.g., Grill, Air Crisp, Roast, Bake, and Dehydrate). With such a short prep time, easy handling, and excellent cooking performance, the Ninja 5-in-1 is a true jack of all trades. ==== My Take ==== For ~$230, the Ninja Foodi 5-in-1 indoor grill is a fantastic value proposition. Ninja has crafted a modern and cool-looking machine that operates easily, clean up easily, and most importantly, cooks everything so well in a consistent and predictable fashion. I can't give this thing anything other than 5 Stars!

    Got this for Christmas and it’s works great. Only issue is the ceramic coating is peeling off after my third use. The manufacturer will not replace because according to them it’s non toxic. Good thing I hand wash instead of using the dish washer.

    This is a perfect small appliance that anyone could use. You can cook just about anything in it. To reduce the smoke, use grape seed oil when air frying/grilling.

    I live in a condo where we are not allowed grills and was really missing steaks but my daughter got me this and sometimes you have to adjust the timing like anything you could but it's amazing. I cook all different types of food. Steaks, chicken, asparagus. Sometimes a little smoke but nothing too worrisome. Just like grilling

    Overall it's fun. You can grill better than the old school George Foreman. Air fryer is ok. Wish I got the model with the temperature probe for better cooking times. Reduce all temperatures and times...cooks very quickly

    Cooks fast, works well

    Posted .
    Pros mentioned:
    Cooking, Ease of use, For meat

    As newly empty nested, we were looking for a way to conveniently cook meals without the hassle of firing up the grill for 2 pieces of meat, or preheating the entire oven just for a couple slices of garlic bread, or digging out the greasy old Fry Daddy to make french fries. The Ninja Foodi 5-in-1 has been the perfect took to keep us cooking at home rather than dining out every night now that we only have to cook for two. Grilled meats (specifically chicken and pork medallions) cooked up in no time and retained the the same flavor and searing you would expect from the grill--but without the effort of setting foot outside. The cookbook/tips sheet was very helpful and nearly spot on with cooking recommendations, although we found we could shorten our cooking times by about 10%. We have used the dehydrator to successfully dehydrate homegrown hops. I was skeptical of the air fryer but it made fantastic french fries from frozen, bagged "extra crispy" advertised spuds. Again, very simple to select our setting and walk away. In the future, however, we will trim a little time off our french fry timer just as we would for the meats. We also tried the bake feature by baking a tube of cinnamon rolls. This was our only "failure" to date. The rolls looked done (see picture) when the timer went off but the underside was underdone leaving a much doughier than normal roll. We likely needed an extra 3-4 minutes--but that might have burned the tops. Regardless, we continue to learn and love the device. The cooker has not given off any smoke but they warn to stay away from oils--specifically olive oil. One drawback from the Ninja advertising photos: It is tough to cook multiple foods at once because often different items (meat vs. vegetable, for example) need different settings. Nonetheless, I would recommend the product ESPECIALLY to someone who only needs to cook for him/herself/couple rather than a large family. This device is easy to use and clean, cooks well, comes with great cooking/recipe instructions, and stores nicely.

    Received this gift for Mother’s Day and I absolutely love it! I finally have the option to grill without having an actual grill outside. Super convenient and works great! Would definitely recommend it!
