While many people in Canada are content to grill outdoors year-round, others (myself included) tend to wrap things up once it starts getting dark out by dinnertime. Luckily, an indoor grill can keep the summer feeling going, without having to stand out in the cold.
The Ninja Foodi 4-in-1 Indoor Grill, currently marked down during Amazon Canada's Cyber Monday sale, takes things up a notch, and even combines all the capabilities of a grill with an air fryer for endless meal combinations that are sure to delight your family and friends.
Right now, shoppers can pick one up on Amazon Canada for just $158 ahead of Cyber Monday.
What is it?
As its name suggests, this kitchen appliance from Ninja combines four cooking methods in one: its unique cyclonic grilling technology and 500F rapid cyclonic air circulation lets you grill, air fry, bake/roast and dehydrate, all in one handy package. You can even transform foods from frozen to perfectly char-grilled in 25 minutes.
A digital control panel makes it easy to select your cooking function and adjust time and temperature so you can grill with confidence. Its large 4-quart easily prepares meals for the entire family, and since it's an air fryer, you can use up to 75 per cent less oil than traditional deep frying.
For added convenience, all of the internal baskets and attachments are ceramic-coated and dishwasher-safe, helping to make cleanup a breeze.
What shoppers are saying
Despite being a new addition to the Ninja Foodi family, this 4-in-1 grill and air fryer has already racked up a 4.7-star rating from more than 900 customer reviews. Shoppers have raved about its ease of use and quick cleanup, as well as the Ninja Foodi's delicious results.
"Everything comes out great," wrote one reviewer, who revealed that in just two weeks they have attempted cooking a huge range of foods, including steak, chicken, hamburgers, fries, baked potatoes, muffins, casseroles, grilled veggies and pork chops.
Another reviewer added that their steaks turned out "as good as any outdoor barbecue" with "great grill marks" and a juicy finish.
Other reviewers have shared that this appliance makes it east to batch cook "quick and healthy meals" for one, saving time during the week on meal prep.
According to reviewers, this machine does work well as an air fryer, but it does have some drawbacks compared to other models that only air fry foods. The Ninja Foodi 4-in-1 Indoor Grill's air fry basket doesn't come with handles, which means it can be difficult to shake your french fries or other foods while they cook.
Others noted that the pre-heating function "took too long," which can slow down your cooking.
Since this multipurpose kitchen appliance can replace several others in your kitchen, it's a worthwhile purchase if you're looking to save on storage space.
While it does have some minor issues like a basket without handles and a pre-heat that some find slow to get going, the pros for this 4-in-1 appliance might just outweigh its cons. Just be sure to snag one before this early Cyber Monday sale ends!
