Design

The Ninja Steam Fryer has a steep learning curve, regardless of your experience with multi-cookers. Fortunately, the machine’s overall controls are straightforward, so you will quickly become accustomed to it.

The unit’s touchscreen design with a dial makes the control panel more aesthetically pleasing and user-friendly. In other words, compared to prior models, there are fewer buttons on this device.

Additionally, the slider facilitates mode switching (which also neatly organizes the cooking functions). In addition, “smart” programs provide default settings that eliminate guesswork for a more intuitive experience.

Shark Ninja’s most recent electric pressure cooker model is the Ninja Foodi Smart XL Pressure Cooker Steam Fryer with SmartLid and Thermometer. Currently, it is only available in an eight-quart size. A ceramic cooking pot, a cook-and-crisp basket, and a reversible rack are included in the package.Performance

The sole function of the pressure cooking mode is pressure cooking. Despite having a single purpose, you may utilize this program frequently. Indeed, that is the case with my pressure cooker. With this one method, you can access hundreds upon thousands of recipes.

As this is a pressure cooker with a bake/roast option, it may be used to bake cakes and bread. And you can cook them up to 25 percent quicker than in an oven (more on that later where I break down baking a cake in this).

Similarly, Ninja promises that the Foodi can pressure cook up to 70 percent faster than conventional cooking methods (such as slow cooking) and air fry with 75 percent less fat than traditional frying.

This device’s Air Fry function is superior, and an air fryer can cook a variety of foods significantly faster than an oven. To prevent overcooking when utilizing this feature, you must strictly adhere to the directions in Foodi’s manual.

If like me, you fear cooking certain foods (such as rice), the Foodi will change your mind. Using the Steam & Crisp option, you can prepare chicken and rice in under 30 minutes, which requires zero ability but will still surprise your friends.

The intelligent thermometer eliminates uncertainty, notably about cooking time. You may set your preferred doneness (9 levels + 4 protein options). The Ninja Foodi will then complete the cooking process and shut off automatically when complete; no more overcooking!

Even finer? You may also utilize the intelligent probe for “WELL” or “SHREDDING” pressure cooking.

In other words, there is no need to consult a chart to determine the cooking time because you may easily prepare your preferred perfect dinner.

If you prefer preparing multiple meals simultaneously, a Foodi is an ideal gadget for you. I am not a great fan of leftovers, but I recognize that I am in the minority on this point, and I understand that the majority of people view excess food as a positive rather than a negative.

Cleaning

The Foodie’s pot and air fry basket are removable and incredibly simple to clean. I baked, air-fried, sautéed, grilled, and steamed within the Foodi, and there was no need for vigorous scrubbing. The pot, basket, and rack (if used) were as good as new after a simple soap and water cleaning.

Should you buy Ninja OL701 Foodi 14-in-1 SMART XL 8 Qt Pressure Cooker?

The Ninja Foodi 8-Quart 14-in-1 SMART XL Steam Fryer is well worth the price. It may be a touch pricey, but you will get MORE than you pay for with all of its intelligent features.

This could be too much for a single person, but when I cooked dinner for my family, each recipe was just right: plenty for everyone, plus leftovers for lunch the next day. When I prepared a supper recipe for one, there was far too much food. As many of these dishes only require 30 minutes to prepare, you may easily prepare meals for an entire week in under an hour, as The Foodi can yield leftovers for several days.

I believe that a Ninja air fryer would be more suitable for my cooking style. This Foodi’s Air Fry function blasted my previous air fryer out of the water.
