The stainless-steel exterior is attractive and gives the appearance more sleek and sophisticated. The enhanced user interface includes a large central dial that simplifies setting the time and temperature.
A 5-quart Cook & Crisp basket is included with the larger 8-quart cooking pot. We adore that it enables you to cook for a larger group.
The 8-quart nonstick cooking pot is easy to clean by hand. The 5-quart ceramic-coated Cook & Crisp basket is dishwasher safe and holds up to a 7-pound chicken.
The white line on the housing and the pressure cooking lid makes it easier to secure the pressure cooker lid. The Ninja Deluxe Pressure Cooker’s sealing ring is black, distinguishing it from other pressure cooker rings. The two-piece rack is reversible and stackable, allowing you to steam, broil, or air fry more food.
Despite its extensive functionality, we found the Foodi Deluxe XL to be quite simple to use and encountered only a few minor annoyances.
It was an absolute pleasure cooking with the Ninja Foodi Deluxe XL Pressure Cooker Air Fryer! Naturally, one reason was the speed with which food is prepared. In less than 20 minutes, can you have a delectable meal?
That is the power output of 1760 watts. However, what struck us most was its adaptability. The Ninja Foodi Deluxe XL is not limited to pressure cooking—it can also air crisp, sear, sauté, bake, broil, steam, dehydrate, and even make yogurt. Combine a few ingredients, press one or two buttons, and you’re ready to go.
Ninja enhanced the Ninja Foodi Deluxe with a yogurt function. On the new Deluxe, the beeping sounds are louder.
The Foodi Deluxe XL’s cleaning requirements are comparable to most other pressure cooking devices. When the crisping lid is in the air frying mode, it generally stays clean. However, cleaning the crisping lid can be a pain if your recipe explodes or splatters.
This device utilizes a nonstick pressure cooker, which we discovered is relatively easy to clean. Even after slightly overcooking vegetables with the sauté function, the pot was simple to clean. Similarly, the pressure cooker lid is simple to clean.
When we used the air crisping function, the lid remained relatively clean, requiring only a quick wipe with a rag. However, if a recipe explodes or splatters, the air fryer’s lid does become quite dirty. Because it is permanently attached to the device, cleaning and drying required some somewhat awkward scrubbing and wiping.
Should you buy Ninja Food Deluxe Pressure Cooker Air Fryer FD401?
The Ninja Foodi Deluxe XL is one of the best iterations of the multi-purpose pressure cooker/air fryer trend we’ve seen recently. If you have any reason to believe that you’ll want both options available to you shortly, we believe the investment is worthwhile.
While this device is more expensive than many pressure cookers, it is comparable in price and requires significantly less counter space than purchasing a separate air fryer and pressure cooker.
If you’re looking for a pressure cooker that can also air fry, or a pressure cooker that can add crispy skin to chicken, the Ninja Foodi Deluxe XL is one of the best options on the market.
