The Ninja Foodi Grill is one of the newest entries to the growing Foodi line of products. In addition to grilling, you can cook your food air fried, baked, roasted, and dehydrated. Here’s a quick rundown on whether it’s worth your money.
What can the Ninja Foodi Grill Do?Buy on Amazon
Although it cooks with the cover closed, the lid doesn’t press down on food, so it makes grill marks on one side at a time. If you want a panini, you’re going to have to turn it over halfway through cooking. The grate leaves the curved grill marks rather than the straight lines of the food.
The Ninja Food Grill is essentially a combination of many of the features of the Ninja Foodi Pressure Cooker and the Ninja Foodi Oven.
Able to create both nutritious grilled and fried foods with little or no oil, the Ninja Foodi Grill can also bake, roast, dehydrate and reheat food. You may even be shocked how inventive a cook you can become with such a sleek appliance, serving dishes such as Cajun grilled chicken and pepper kebabs in just 10 minutes, or beef wellington under 20 minutes, for example.
A time-saving countertop gadget, the Foodi Grill makes preparing meals easy and convenient, offering a tech that takes the guesswork out of cooking. Simply pop in your food, click the feature you want – if it’s baked, air-fry, grill, and so on – and the appliance would recommend an optimal cooking time by pressing a button. For added convenience, the grill tray, the crisper basket, and the cooking pot are all dishwasher-safe.
Since the body of the Ninja is smooth, with no knobs or fiddly nooks, the appliance proved to be easy to keep clean. The splatter guard that bears the bulk of the grilling mess can be quickly removed and cleaned by hand or in a dishwasher.
Ninja Foodi MAX Health Grill & Air Fryer Price and Availability
Continuing to expand the range of countertop products, Ninja is quickly becoming a household name. The Foodi MAX Health Grill & Air Fryer joins Ninja’s huge range of useful and high-tech kitchen appliances, including a range of blenders, multi-cookers, food processors, air fryers, and grills.
Ninja Foodi MAX Health Grill & Air Fryer is the newest addition to the company’s air fryer range, and unlike the current Ninja Foodi Dual Zone Air Fryer AF300UK, the former can be used as an air fryer and a health grill. Ninja Foodi MAX Health Grill & Air Fryer AG551UK is currently available on the Ninja website for about $240.
Should You Buy It?
Anyone who enjoys grilled food but doesn’t have convenient access to an outdoor grill would enjoy this Ninja. It browns food a lot better than a broiler, and unlike a grilling pan, it doesn’t fill the house with smoke. It’s a major bonus, too, that it can air fry. Although it also roasts, bakes, and dehydrates, we’re not going to go out to purchase it for those skills.
You’ve got to bear in mind that you’re going to need a big room in your kitchen or surrounding pantry to fit this Foodi—but for good grilling, it’s worth the storage.
