I have one - it really depends what meals you like to eat.

Yep I’ve got one, game changer!! Cooks frozen chicken tenders so quickly, we also love to do fries in it, as well as pies and mini quiches too.

I have a Ninja foodie 14 in 1 and in a fire I have told my family to fend for themselves, I am saving the ninja 😂

If you eat a lot of processed food. Go for it.
but if you cook from scratch - buy a cheaper one

We have one and use it all the time. Don't buy frozen stuff that frequently and we are veggie.

We have it on almost every day, I think I only use the oven once a fortnight now.

@geekone but waht part of it do you use most often? Coz I use the pressure cooker way more than anyhow else.

PS we are veggie and cook from scratch and still use it a lot - roasted veggies and chickpeas to toss on a salad, homemade falafels, sweet potato chunks, baked spiced apples, crispy tofu...use it for all sorts!

I have a Ninja Foodi Pro Max - it's amazing! Hardly use the oven now and thinking of selling it and getting a second Ninja instead.

I’ve got that one but after the first flush of enthusiasm we rarely use it. In fact, I went out today and bought an extremely cheap mini deep fat fryer just to cook chips, and salt and pepper spare ribs in as neither the the air fryer or oven give them that same crispiness.

The airfryer sauté and the pressure cooker probably. I think the airfryer most.

tonight I did sweet and sour pork in it. I browned the meat in it softened the veg a bit then added the saucy bits and airfryed for 15 minutes it was amazing.

I have one and use it a fair bit but wish I had bought one with a bigger compartment.

I posted a similar question yesterday in AIBU and got lots of good answers and advice, might be worth a look for you. Its title is if you have an air fryer. Great minds and all that 😁

I cook everything from scratch (obviously I have sausages from time to time and bacon, but main meals are cooked from scratch.

you can make loads in an airfryer that’s not already made for you.

@Murphs1 i will have a look!

i cook meals from scratch. Can you make a chicken breast in it for example? Can you put different food in one compartment? Such as raw, cut potatoes to make fries, chicken breast and some veggies?

I've got the ninja 15 in 1 and aside from steam air frying salmon fillets which cook beautifully, I've yet to fall in love. I just can't get chips right. They are usually too brown on outside and flighty hard in the middle

That said, I can pressure cook hard boiled eggs in 1 minute after steam has built and can air fry self bake ciabatta for tomorrows lunch in 6 mins - results no better than oven but no preheating so ££ saved.

Oh the Bolognese is good. After sautéing you layer everything (no mixing) including dried pasta and pressure cook for 12 mins. It's perfect for that

I have the 11-in-1 and cook everything from scratch. I use it for practically everything, but glad I went for a multi cooker rather than just an air fryer. I do wedges, crispy tofu, pastries and all sorts in the air fryer. Fish fillets with veg and pulses using steam air fry. The pressure cooker function is a revelation for cooking pulses, pasta and jacket potatoes (finished in air fryer). And I do a massive batch of homemade yoghurt in it every other week. Saved me a fortune.
