    Amazing
    This little grill / oven does everything that it's claimed to do. It really is amazing how well it works even without reading or following any sort of guidance. Just plug and play, use it with a bit of common sense and away you go. The second most amazing thing is the total lack of smoke, there is a small sort of exhaust thing on the back, and very little heat escapes from there, all of the heat seems to be contained within the unit. Another thing is the grease / fat trap located somewhere at the back of the grill, I must remember to check it sometime, no sign yet of any leakage. I haven't used the grill plate much yet, but early efforts produce good results, and the drained off fat must be going somewhere !I can't praise this little oven / grill enough, if I had to, I would buy another tomorrow.

    It's good for cooking your food, really annoying to clean.
    Let me start with pros first. It's really easy to use and it makes food way You expect it will do. For that it's actually worth the money.But at the same time it comes with some serious cons. You can remove grill, pans and splash guard and they are easy to clean but at same time it is ridiculously easy to scratch nonstick surface on them, all it takes is pieces touching each while device is in use.Also, what pissed me the most that grill is getting greasy as hell inside, on parts thay You can't really remove for cleaning, really really greasy. And to be honest as I looked throught the manual I didn't managed to find informations how to safely clean device itself. Not saying it's 100% was not there, just that manual is lacking some transparency on that aspect of using it, as I didn't managed to find any detailed informations about it.

    Perfect for 2 people
    There is nothing to dislike about this piece of equipment.Does everything that a normal oven does but just on a smaller scale.It is much quicker to heat up than a normal oven and as it is compact it seems to cook quicker.I am really pleased with it.

    Cooks healthily, quickly and cheaply
    This is a great addition to our kitchen. It has reduced the use of the conventional oven to nearly zero.Chicken and Beef roasts are easy and perfect.We have teenage children and they use it much more than they used to do with yhe oven.Homemade potato wedges take 10 mins.Spatchcock Chicken takes 25 mins instead of 70!!Great energy saver in these challenging times.

    Great time saver
    LOVE the speed of the cooking, it cuts oven cooking time in half. Love the way food is cooked right through, and skin is crispy. You can use oil but really don't need much. Love that the timer will beep to tell you when it has heated up and when to add the food in. You can open the lid and check the food before the timer runs out and it just pauses, then resumes when you close the lid again. You can extend the cooking time by just adding more minutes to the timer before it runs out, otherwise it has to heat up again before you resume cooking.NOT LOVED so much. It takes up a lot of room on your counter surface. The accessories are sold separately and are a bit pricey. I think that considering how expensive this machine is (compared to others on the market) they could include at least a rack so that you can cook more items at the same time. Easy to clean except for the mesh that sits inside the lid. Overall, I love it, would definitely recommend.

    Best purchase made for years.
    I bought this air fryer with little or no expectations. However, now after using it for a couple of weeks I’m loving it. I have not used my oven since. I live on my own and it’s the best addition to my kitchen that I have made in years. With cost of energy rising by the week this is a very good purchase.

    One of the best buys I've EVER made!
    So there are many gimmicks out on the market today that promise to make your life easier and for the most part, we fall for it and spend our hard-earned cash in the hope they live up to expectations. I have made many of these purchases over the years only to find they gather dust in the back of my cupboards.So, our oven door had been playing up for a while and I saw an advert for the ninja on tv and decided to take a gamble as it looked so good. It isn't exactly a cheap purchase so that's why it was a gamble but boy was I glad I did!Firstly, the Ninja does everything it says on the tin. This isn't a machine that says it will deliver results then you discover it's not exactly as you expected. I'd already looked at the recipes and knew what I wanted to try and I wasn't disappointed. Roast vegetables, meat, fish, fries...you name it, the ninja can cook pretty much anything.As soon as we received the Ninja, we used it constantly. I swear down we have barely used the oven ever since! It is so versatile. Now I am not a fan of steak, however, on my birthday we had my parents round for a bbq and I wanted to try a ribeye steak for everyone. we used the probe and it turned out the best steak we've ever had. No chewyness, just soft and lovely. Everyone was impressed.I thought I'd list the pro's and con's I've found so far:Pro's -Cooks food beautifullyEasy to cleanSuper simple to useSaves time on cookingNo messHealthy (little oil)Worktop height (saves bending)Cons -Not quite enough room to cook enough for a family of five or even fourIf you don't watch food it can overcookHave to cook food in batches then re-heatI can't actually think of any more negatives. This really does rate as one of my top five buys of all time. My only gripe is I need more of them to be able to cook more at the same time. Obviously, this would become costly and therefore not viable unless you can afford it.My overall verdict is to buy this as you won't be disappointed.

    Best Health Grill I've purchased to date
    Much better than the £300 Tefal I replaced. They cost similar, but the Ninja is far better, especially for grilling steaks. The temperature probe works very well, and the non-stick surface is of a very high quality.

    Already paying for itself with energy save + less takeaways
    Completely cut stuff like steak slices and sausage rolls out of my diet, would often grab one on the way back from work just so I can have something quick and easy, but everything is pretty quick and easy in this thing. Huge money save when you add up those few pounds every day. I buy those rolled puff pastries in the rectangle cardboard box instead and make super tasty bacon twists/sausage rolls in under 10min start to finish. Also haven't used my oven since getting this thing, but I do live on my own. Roasted veg, 1kg beef joints, done freezer teas etc all great. Probably around 30% quicker than in the oven and nowhere near the pre heat time so big energy save. Chicken wings and drumsticks are super good on the grill setting, they get up top temp so fast that they genuinely the juiciest wings i've had, it was a bit weird at first but it does taste better, could probably fool some into thinking they're right off the bbq.The one downside I have so far after almost a month is that the GRILL PLATE is pretty annoying to clean, especially when cooking bacon and this is with the included brush. it definitely isn't a deal breaker, but yeah. What I do is after using the grill plate I like to remove the drip tray + grill plate together and just fill it with warm water and washing up liquid while they are still sitting inside one another. After soaking for 1-2min and another 1-2 min with the included brush it is good to go.There is a company called sear'n'sizzle (i think) that sells an aftermarket grill plate that looks way better, I saw it in a recipe video on youtube (channel was the salted pepper, had some alright recipes for me to try when I got the product tbh) but it is 70 odd quid. Probably at christmas or something

    I love this machine
    I use it every day, and am constantly learning new ways of putting it to work. The accessories are fantastic and easy to clean, as is most of the machine. The only improvement I would make is to the inside of the lid which is much harder to keep clean and would benefit from a similar coating as pans.

    Great device
    The Ninja is a great bit of kit. I have hardly needed to use my gas oven since I bought it. But I need to use my Actify along side of it to do chips. Most of it is easy to clean. The lid is not. The instructions say clean with a damp cloth. It is starting to go brown even after cleaning every time. It has parts you cant get to. Do not spray it with oven cleaner. It dries on parts you cant get to. Then it snows dried oven cleaner on your food! When I solve the cleaning part it will be a great addition to my kitchen. I have had to take over the cooking in our house due to Mrs with Dementia. Accessories are all out of stock!

    Easy to cook and hard to clean
    The grill setting is amazing on this machine, chargrilled lines add flavour to your steak, the air fryer setting cooks very fast but can dry out certain foods. You need to cook meat for less time than stated. It’s not smokeless like it states but use oil on meats to cut the smoke down. All parts that need cleaning can be easily removed but cleaning between the grill rails gets harder the more you use it, even with the specialist tool supplied. I do love mine but I use it outside to stop smelling the house out. If you are cooking a steak it needs to pre heat first, takes about 6 minutes preheat and the 7-9 minutes for a thick cut steak.

    Ninja grills!
    After buying a very cheap air fryer to see if we would use it enough, we finally made the jump to get a ninja and I'm so glad we chose this ninja with the grill plate included. As well as using it as a regular air fryer for chips etc. The grill function is like having an indoor bbq on your kitchen worktop. It really does make everything taste restaurant quality and leaves really nice grill marks on your food. You have to wait a little while for it to get up to temperature but it does cook the food so muck quicker, and saves you money as you don't have to heat up a whole oven every time. Air fryer setting is very good for nice crispy roast potatoes. Everything is dishwasher safe to clean but sometimes needs a bit of a scrub as well.

    Ninja Foodi MAX Health Grill and Air Fryer
    Bought as unable to get this model locally due to demand. Price matched with supplier I had been looking at. Used a few times so far and impressed with it. It is very large and heavy and takes up a whole bottom shelf in one of my kitchen cupboards. However that didn't put me off it and would recommend. Easy to use and easy to clean.

    In our opinion its much better that the upright draw type versions, it so much easier to get food out and turn over etc, it has a larger work/cooking area as well.Also easier to clean the inside top around the heating element.Wish we had bought it first but didnt really know how we were going to get on with using one.We have'nt used the the main cooker since buying it.Having said that we do use the main cooker once a fortnight just to kill off any bacteria the my be lurking in there as its impossible to keep an oven spotless and you never know when you might want to use it ???

    So easy to use! Dont be afraid to cook in it, it will cook pretty much anything and everything! Doing burgers or steak on the grill leaves the griddle marks in the meat- HEAVEN!The only downside us the wire mesh over the heating element gets quiet dirty over time, however thats probably more my fault than anything

    Ninja 5 in 1= Great
    Love the 5 in 1 Grill so far, used it most days since I bought it. I have the original Ninja Foodi and the Dual Air Fryer also. A few days after I originally wrote this review, I started seeing little scratches on the cooking pot, and fried Eggs sometimes sticks, but I still love my Ninja Grill. Only had about a month.

    Amazing just buy it.
    I was very confused which ninja to buy. I wanted something to take the place of my energy guzzling oven. I believe this is the right one me. Plenty of functions, I’ve used them all successfully and I’ve even baked a cake and made Yorkshire puddings! Small oven trays will fit in ok I used my yorkie pud 4 tray with no probs but that’s the limit gir dize. Small sandwich cake tins fit one at a time. It’s large but works well under my cupboard, it does not generate a lot of steam or cooking smells. Great to air fry chips, no more horrid oven chips for us and healthier too. Very efficient, heating a smaller space and cooks quickly. It can cook a large chicken but you may have to spatchcock it, really easy to do with a good pair of scissors. Open top cooking, you can fry with lid up to do eggs do stirfry ect. I personally think it is an amazing bit of kit. I cleaned my big oven out 3 weeks ago and I haven’t used it since. I did a full Sunday lunch with my ninja and microwave, just need to plan it a bit more logistically for timings but it was fine. No pans to wash just a couple of plastic bowls for microwave. The only downside is cleaning the lid as others have commented it’s a bit fiddly around the fan and element. However the cooking benefits outweigh this little issue. It’s great.

    Our best kitchen gadget!
    We’ve had Ninja Grill and Air Fryer for just over a week, so still experimenting but so far everything we’ve cook in it has turned out amazing. The guesswork is completely removed, especially with the temperature probe. Simple chicken breasts come out amazing with a cross cross charring, a smoky kind of flavour but perfectly cooked and moist. Just like a good restaurant, so we cooked more last night. Large pork chops, also perfect. Usually I’d have to fry those and stick them in the oven because they’re too thick to grill or fry and cook properly in the middle without burning. But with this, I just popped them in and 15 mins later they were done to perfection. Although I bought this primarily for the air frying function (for chips) we’ve haven’t used that yet because the grill is so good! My only criticism is that the grill plate, with its swirly pattern, is a pain to wash up without water spraying around everywhere! But it’s very non stick and if there’s space, washes well in the dishwasher.

    A sensational kitchen addition
    This Ninja kitchen Foodi max is the most important cooking item to reach our kitchens since the invention of the cooker. I am not just impressed with the cooking facilities but actually overwhelmed with the accuracy and outcomes from using it to cook. It is sensational - it really is. I am 77 and have cooked my own food most of my life - including my teenage years, student years and ever since - and this is the BEST kitchen product EVER.

Taking some getting used to but this is because I'm on a learning curve bit of trial and error and keeping an eye on it when cooking

    Just brilliant
    Absolutely brilliant. This was recommended to us as being a wonderful way to cook food and it doesnt't disappoint. In fact it is absolutely marvellous. Long gone are the days when a simple chop under the grill came out 'hard' and tough. This keeps the meat juicy and cooks everything in half the time. The main cooker at home is now barely used (energy saving plus) and you just know it will taste wonderful. Pork joint with crunchy crackling no problem. If I have any complaints at all it is that the 'instruction booklet' is just not clear enough and confusing. It took many phone calls to my brother, who is an avid user, to get the gist of how to use this correctly. Once you have confidence after a few uses you just would not revert back to conventional grilling or ovens. Highly recommended.,

    How have I lived without a Ninja Foodi MAX Health Grill and Air Fryer!!!
    This has been such a life changer for me. I live on my own so constantly using a large oven just isn't practical. Also, with the rising cost of energy the Ninja not only heats up really quickly but cooks much quicker and you're not having to heat an entire oven to cook a nice meal. The air fryer makes cooking much healthier, also. It has multiple options for cooking (bake, grill, air fry, roast and reheat) so you can use it to pretty much cook anything. It is a large machine but to be honest it just sits on top of my cooker (which is now pretty much redundant) and I've got used to it and I don't even notice it now - it's a small downside to such an amazing machine, which I use all the time now. Also, I have already noticed a drop in my electricity consumption. Highly recommend.

    Product good, delivery state poor
    Like the idea, but am still learning how to use it, however, it was delivered in a bashed, broken and open box so I was disappointed and am still waiting to see if it’s harsh journey has affected its performance, watch this space. YouTube is essential for the learning process, even how to take the splatter guard off to clean it….., basic. Reviews have been great, from my pre-purchase research, so I have high hopes.

    Fantastic piece of gear but not all areas of it are able to clean easily
    I have an induction oven and hob, a great set of pans, and some knowledge of cooking! The Ninja Foodi MAX PRO Health Grill (sorry just wanted to make it exact in case this review gets lumped in with other items on Amazon) has done 3 things really well. I'll list them in comparison to my normal cooking routine - a) grilling/frying burgers, lamb chops, steaks - any meat you would fry/grill to get the caramelised burnt taste - it just does them better - b) roast chicken - I really wanted a rotisserie - and this doesn't have it - but spatchcock the chicken and it's great c) air frying frozen chips - absolutely the best!!! I only need to look at my oven, and it automatically gets dirty - this device is easier to clean overall - though it still has some tricky bits I've not been able to get to. I haven't done an electricity usage comparison, but it is faster and gives better results - and I am assuming, though don't have any scientific advice to back it up - that it could be more energy efficient because it is simply heating a much smaller space than my oven/grill. We are a 2 person household - so feels fine for us. Not tried cooking a fried egg on a flat plate yet tho!

    Happy so far
    I've been amazed at how much quicker everything cooks. I have to make sure everything else in the meal is ready before I start the Ninja component. Air frying chips/wedges is a favourite. I part boil/microwave potatoes first, toss in a small amount of oil and they come out great. Cake baking - great results - better than my regular oven. The temperature probe is very useful because meat cooks so much quicker. Thick sausages only took 5 or 10 mins. I didn't like one piece of belly pork which came out rubbery but that might have been the fault of the meat and/or it might be better slow cooked. Chicken is fantastic - browned but moist. I've never had such a great result when cooking tandoori chicken - it was almost exactly like at the Indian restaurant. I tried drying beetroot and parsnips and they tasted good but it did take a long time. Other than that, I'm sure I'm going to save on my electricity usage.

    To someone not easily impressed… It’s impressive
    So I’m deeply cynical in reviews- too much smoke and mirrors out there… so I held off buying one of these!Now that I have, I’m pleased to report it’s an impressive appliance! This is the big brother of the range, and requires significant power but for short duration; hears up efficiently BUT if you’re taking to the caravan where there’s a limit on your Elec hook-up, bear in mind this absorbs around 10amps (2.3kW).It’s ability to do crispy chips cut from potatoes rather than out of a bag is impressive! Im lookin forward to trying sweet potato wedges- and I’m confident it’ll do better than a domestic fan oven as it gets hot really quickly without building up too much steam!The probe is also impressive- stick it in a chicken breast and it’ll cook it to perfection without overcooking.I’ve a deep rooted dislike of the gimmick kitchen appliances you see on tv shopping channels- eg halogen ovens and mini rotisserie products! This is actually useful! If you’ve a family with teenage kids, it’s a good idea to go for a big one- I should point out it’s not particularly small or lightweight, but it’s done a good job of everything I’ve put in it so far!! I’ll report back for n the sweet potato wedges- might even take a pic!

    Why didn’t I get one earlier!?
    Our main big oven broke and we replaced it with a cheap mini oven which was hard to keep clean, took forever to heat and cooked food quite unevenly. We decided to get rid of it and order a more expensive machine.We decided to get a 5.7l Ninja Foodi because out of all other options, it seemed the most suitable for us. I don’t like the design of the usual double basket air fryers and I thought it would be cool to have both grill and air fryer and also an oven in one.I received this today and the pic attached shows what I’ve made to test it. It was a handful of frozen chips and a meatless no-chick’n burger. I’ll break it in points to make it easier.1. Heating timeoh boy, do I love this machine already. The heating was so fast I just couldn’t believe it, I thought it hasn’t heated fully. But I threw the chips and burger in and it all sizzled nicely.2. Cooking timeThis is another thing that surprised me… most guides for air fryers say that you should fry the chips at 200*C for about 20-25 minutes.I set it at 190*C, set the timer to 15 minutes and it was all ready and perfect!!! Crispy, cooked through, and delicious.I opened it once and stir the contents. The machine stops automatically after you lift the lid up, and resumes after it’s closed again. I don’t have any proper accessories yet so I just stirred everything with a big wooden spoon.3. CleaningIt is so easy to clean, I don’t have a dishwasher but it’s no problem at all to wash it by hand.And no residue is going to be building up at the bottom like in a regular oven, because everything can be taken out to clean!4. Overall experienceThis machine, despite its capacity, is not very big. I was expecting something much bigger but I’m glad it’s not, because it’s just perfect. The design of the cooking plate is pretty deep so enough to cook for our family of 3.Haven’t used other options than airfry yet, but it was a positive experience. I’m going to use it for almost everything.I plan to make some tofu puffs in it later, to go with rice from my Bamboo rice cooker.I honestly have no idea why I haven’t thought of getting it earlier. It’s so much more convenient and comfortable than a regular oven. Perfect little machine.

    Different but better
    Tried a Cosori but didn’t like the draw system or the controls. Buttons for each type of food but recommendations on cooking time are at best a guide. Most reviews of air fryers say this. So I opted for the Ninja because it has an opening lid which means you can access food during cooking without taking out the draw and putting it on the worktop. The controls are different and much easier to use because you select what type of cooking eg air fry or grill press start and it automatically starts a pre-heat cycle and has a progress indicator. While it is heating up you use the dedicated temperature buttons to adjust the temperature to the recommendation for that particular food. Then set a time and wait for it beep to add the food. I learnt quickly to set a slightly longer time then check with a temperature probe. If it is done turns off. If not lower the lid and it carries on. Always check 30 seconds before the time is up because it pauses the timer so when you lower the lid you have time to add a couple more minutes.It is easy to clean. Let it cool then either take out the main tray and the basket or griddle drop in the filter fill with hot water and soap and leave. Rinse and clean with the brush. I clean after each use where any oil is released. Don’t usually need to after cooking a pizza. Pizza is quick and easy. Take a pitta bread two teaspoons of Tesco pizza topping sprinkle with pre-grated cheese and whatever … fine chopped mushroom pepper left over sausage ham thin slice tomato, sprinkle with a little Italian herb mix and cook. You can make it during the heat up cycle! Roast potatoes chips carrots all great with minimal fat.The other feature that attracted me is the grill function. This sets a higher temperature than air frying and it uses the special griddle plate. Tried sausages twice perfect and didn’t need to turn them.So I find the controls much easier and more logical to use. Much better than preset buttons for chips chicken etc. The quality is very high and the internal basket and griddle plate coatings much higher quality. It is twice the price but I can strongly recommend despite this.

    Brilliant airfryer. Use it three - four times per week
    Great airfryer, we use it 3-4 times per week. We use the grill and airfry features. Great for chicken, steak, chicken wings, chips you name it. very easy to clean.

    Size
    It works very well with portion size chicken thighs, chops steak etc; but not suitable for larger joints such as whole chickens, lamb, pork and beef family roses. If you want the flexibility to cook larger joints, casseroles stews and so on you’re probably better off with the 6 litre Ninja 11 Foodie which apparently covers all options.

    It’s Fabulous!!
    We’d heard all the ravings about air fryers, and were sceptical until our son persuaded us otherwise. We’re now true believers, to be honest it’s a absolute revelation. The cooking times are amazing, food tastes delicious, and the versatility almost endless. Truthfully we haven’t had our oven on since it arrived. Best of all the savings can make a real difference to your utility bills. Highly Recommend

    The best thing I ever bought!
    Where do I start?!Probably the best item I ever purchased in my entire life. So much so I got another one for my mother in law for Christmas (she wanted one ever since I got mine about a year ago - I got mine directly from Ninja but the review you are reading is technically for the one I got for my MIL bought from Amazon on Black Friday).I cannot describe how much I love my Ninja.I cooked every kind of meat possible. I made pulled pork, steaks, hard boiled eggs (BAKE 160C 14 minutes - you will be amazed - they wont break), fish, sea food, bacon, sausages, whole chicken (BAKE 180C 30 to 45+ minutes depending on size - pro tip: spatchcock), wings etc (every part of the chicken, pork or beef basically), halloumi.I pretty much stopped using oven, all I need in my life is Ninja Foodi Grill.I use it at least once a day, I cook fresh and do meal prep.Cooking time in comparison to oven is at least 1/2 to 1/4 depending on what you are making.My mother in law eat more variety in her diet and she enjoyed home made chips, grilled cheese sandwiches etc. She absolutely loves her Ninja too! She's an older person living alone, she doesn't want to waste time and energy on using an over for one person. She had no problem with set up or instructions - Ninja Foodi Grill may look a bit like spaceship but it's actually extremely easy to use. And the results are delicious.We both mostly wash our grill parts in dishwasher, sometimes by hand.Never had any problem, they always wash perfectly.There is no smoking (even from pork belly or bacon), smell, no mess.I personally can't see any negatives, its not any noisier than regular air fryer but so much more versatile.Yes it is heavy, it's not something that (I feel) you can keep in the cupboard and get it in and out all the time, you are better off to have permanent, dedicated, spot on the counter but for me this is not a negative as I use it ALL THE TIME anyway.If I had to take just one kitchen gadget to a deserted island this would be THE ONE!

    It’s very easy to use, when cooking meat if you use the probe and set how you want it cooked it tells you when ready. Very easy to wash. Comes with a basic cook book to get you started, reason I got one is its meant to be cheaper than the cooker.

    Very thin enamel on the air fryer basket
    Nice bit of kit, easy to use and doesn't take too much worktop space up. Only negatives is the very thin enamel on the air fryer basket, mine has already been chipped by catching it on the lid. The slant on the griddle is to high and the fan blows lighter food, ie, tempura prawns down to the oil drain catcher.Finally the lid! Instruction say to only wipe with a soft damp cloth and not use cleaning agents, which is not cleaning off the more stubborn cooking stains.

    If you only have one extra gadget in your kitchen make it this.
    I bought this for my partner Kathryn as part of her Christmas. We decided to start using it as soon as we got it so if it was as good as we had heard, we could precook the Christmas dinner on Christmas Eve.So to test it out we tried sirloin steak, mushrooms, baby potatoes and parsnips.We both were extremely impressed with the steaks along with the various vegetables. The mushrooms could have been cooked for less time but otherwise it was extremely delicious.We have pre-prepared the veg and have just cooked the turkey crown, roast beef and a gammon joint in the Ninja and they have all come out cooked perfectly.We are seriously impressed with the Ninja AG301UK.

    OMG I love it!
    It's perfect! Recently purchased a new electric cooker and the grill on it is awful so I purchased this as I use a grill so much. The bonus is according to money saving tips it is also much cheaper to run than a conventional electric grill! So far I have used it mmearly daily it is quicker cleaner and the food tastes fantastic!

    LOVE IT
    Bought a massive food fryer 15 in one that to be honest was way outside my needs luckily Amazon are good and let you return things. Again good b cease I swapped that massive food pressure cooking marvel for the Food Grill and Air fryer. This is more like what my needs are its quiet which was surprising , cooks lovely browns grills and roasts everything I need oh and it does my fav chips. I bought this from the amazon warhorse dept im not tight but do like to do my bit for the environment so why not get one thats been returned in excellent order and save some pennies too. Everything is good I am very happy with this item.

    Had already purchased a Ninja Foodi 9 in 1 and it worked out great. Realised to optimise our air-fryer use, we needed another, but didn't need all of the features on the 9 in 1. So decided to buy the grill and air fryer. It's great as a grill and an air fryer, and being rectangular in shape, it's much easier to put certain items in to cook. Highly recommend - if you don't need the pressure cooker, dehydrator or slow cooker features of the 9 in 1, this is a first pick.

    Fantastic little machine. First air fryer we’ve had, so easy to use and produces great results, chicken looks and tastes like it’s been barbecued, brown and crispy on the outside but perfectly cooked on the inside. Chips are the same, lovely and fluffy inside.

    Love this however not easy to clean
    I love my health grill there are 6 easy functions. However it’s not easy to clean at all and I find it to be pretty greasy after using. Only had three weeks and used for most meals. If it was as easy to clean as my 15 in 1 this would of been 5 stars

    Best purchase after a lot of hesitation
    So I have been debating getting an air fryer because I couldn’t get past the fact it was just a glorified oven.But it’s better than an oven…I liked all the settings on the air fryer like the grill and roast setting. It takes a fraction of the time to preheat and even shorter to cook, often only needing a third of the time usually recommended on the packaging.I even managed to convince my husband in cooking the perfect temperature of beef roast with the help of the the temperature probe.Perfect for families serving 3-4 people.

    I used to love it, but essentially it has no guarantee
    Update: I have needed to knock off a star because registering the guarantee, which should be straightforward, has proven to be an utter nightmare. Essentially, the website doesn’t accept registrations of more than one product and the Amazon receipt that you can download isn’t acceptable to Shark/Ninja, so you basically don’t have a guarantee as they won’t accept Amazon’s proof of purchase. I wish I had never purchased a product from Shark/Ninja and I won’t be making the same mistake again as, no matter how good the product, it is pretty worthless without the backup of a guarantee.This is a very well constructed item and feels as though it will last for many years. It is heavy and on the bulky side of things, impossible to fit into my corner cupboard where I hoped to store it and it takes up more than one shelf in my larder cupboard because not all of the parts can be stored inside. So, it is awkward to store and heavy to move, but so very worth it!The air fryer cooks extremely well and, although the contents need to be manually stirred, the basket allows air to circulate and turning feels almost unnecessary as a result. Food cooks fast and evenly and the results are crisp; I have made some of my best ever chips in this and in less than 20 minutes, which is impressive.Of course, this is more than just an air fryer and the grill allows you to cook various meat items in much less time than you would need to spend frying, as well as ensuring nothing spits out. Once used for a couple of times following the manual, it is intuitive and very easy to use.Washing up is straightforward and, when new anyway, the non-stick surface is a breeze to clean by hand. The baskets/tray can go into the dishwasher, but I am hand washing for now. As I am a vegetarian, I will probably use the dishwasher to clean the parts when I have cooked meat for my partner, but I find it easy enough otherwise to do by hand.This is already my favourite kitchen item and I wish I had bought one years ago.

    Completely cut stuff like steak slices and sausage rolls out of my diet, would often grab one on the way back from work just so I can have something quick and easy, but everything is pretty quick and easy in this thing. Huge money save when you add up those few pounds every day. I buy those rolled puff pastries in the rectangle cardboard box instead and make super tasty bacon twists/sausage rolls in under 10min start to finish. Also haven't used my oven since getting this thing, but I do live on my own. Roasted veg, 1kg beef joints, done freezer teas etc all great. Probably around 30% quicker than in the oven and nowhere near the pre heat time so big energy save. Chicken wings and drumsticks are super good on the grill setting, they get up top temp so fast that they genuinely the juiciest wings i've had, it was a bit weird at first but it does taste better, could probably fool some into thinking they're right off the bbq.The one downside I have so far after almost a month is that the GRILL PLATE is pretty annoying to clean, especially when cooking bacon and this is with the included brush. it definitely isn't a deal breaker, but yeah. What I do is after using the grill plate I like to remove the drip tray + grill plate together and just fill it with warm water and washing up liquid while they are still sitting inside one another. After soaking for 1-2min and another 1-2 min with the included brush it is good to go.There is a company called sear'n'sizzle (i think) that sells an aftermarket grill plate that looks way better, I saw it in a recipe video on youtube (channel was the salted pepper, had some alright recipes for me to try when I got the product tbh) but it is 70 odd quid. Probably at christmas or something

    I've been amazed at how much quicker everything cooks. I have to make sure everything else in the meal is ready before I start the Ninja component. Air frying chips/wedges is a favourite. I part boil/microwave potatoes first, toss in a small amount of oil and they come out great. Cake baking - great results - better than my regular oven. The temperature probe is very useful because meat cooks so much quicker. Thick sausages only took 5 or 10 mins. I didn't like one piece of belly pork which came out rubbery but that might have been the fault of the meat and/or it might be better slow cooked. Chicken is fantastic - browned but moist. I've never had such a great result when cooking tandoori chicken - it was almost exactly like at the Indian restaurant. I tried drying beetroot and parsnips and they tasted good but it did take a long time. Other than that, I'm sure I'm going to save on my electricity usage.

    I bought this air fryer with little or no expectations. However, now after using it for a couple of weeks I’m loving it. I have not used my oven since. I live on my own and it’s the best addition to my kitchen that I have made in years. With cost of energy rising by the week this is a very good purchase.

    There is nothing to dislike about this piece of equipment.Does everything that a normal oven does but just on a smaller scale.It is much quicker to heat up than a normal oven and as it is compact it seems to cook quicker.I am really pleased with it.

    This little grill / oven does everything that it's claimed to do. It really is amazing how well it works even without reading or following any sort of guidance. Just plug and play, use it with a bit of common sense and away you go. The second most amazing thing is the total lack of smoke, there is a small sort of exhaust thing on the back, and very little heat escapes from there, all of the heat seems to be contained within the unit. Another thing is the grease / fat trap located somewhere at the back of the grill, I must remember to check it sometime, no sign yet of any leakage. I haven't used the grill plate much yet, but early efforts produce good results, and the drained off fat must be going somewhere !I can't praise this little oven / grill enough, if I had to, I would buy another tomorrow.
