My Experience of Using Ninja Foodi Multi Cooker OP300 [Review]
I have been using this for quite some time and what I like the most is its multi-functions – it can pressure cook, air fry, steam, grill, bake/roast, slow cook, sear/sauté and keep warm for up to 12 hours.
It is a combination of a powerful pressure cooker and an air fryer.
You can use it as a pressure cooker or air fryer or in combination of both depends on what you are going to cook.
A single Ninja Foodi Multi Cooker can replace two separate appliances to save you up some precious space for other appliances like a microwave and oven.
It is a godsend for homes with limited kitchen countertop space.
I also love its steam function, which uses less water and time to get my food ready.
Previously I always used the electric hob to heat a wok with a rack inside for steaming, and sometimes I need to refill the water when steaming thick-size Japanese sweet potatoes which require about an hour to reach the soft texture.
But when I use Ninja Foodi to steam the same size of Japanese sweet potatoes, it takes a shorter time (around 35 mins) and lesser water.
It also heats up faster than my previous pressure cooker that uses a stainless-steel pot.
The shorter cook time is due to the aluminum pot which conducts heat much faster and more evenly compared to the stainless-steel pot. Also, the pressure release valve limits the amount of stream escape to the outside to preserve water in the pot.
After I started using Ninja Foodi, I found that I spent a relatively shorter time cooking meals as it can heat up much quicker and get my food done sooner.
Shorter cook time means more time to do other things, this is the kind of benefit that can improve the quality of life as time is precious and limited.
It is also great for busy people who want to prepare their meals faster.
Besides, I like their innovative design of using two distinct lids and accessories to transit between different cooking methods.
You can pressure cook your food first by using the pressure lid and then use the grill/air crisp function with the crisping lid for finishing.
It unlocks more possibilities in your cooking journey.
So what are you waiting for? Go ahead and order one to experience yourself now!

One of the main advantages of using Ninja Foodi is you can use multiple cooking methods with only a single appliance.
It is even more beneficial for kitchens with limited countertop space, such as condominiums, serviced apartments, flats, and small to medium-size landed houses.
On top of the multi-features and space-saving, its great performance and high-quality materials give you even more value from your money.
Another important thing I want to mention is that it can save you a lot of precious time due to the shorter cook time, and this is what money can’t buy.
Imagine if this appliance can save you 20 minutes from each cooking session, how much would it save for a year? It’s like giving you extra few days to do more important things every year!
