What does the Ninja Air Fryer do?
This air fryer allows you to crisp, roast, bake, reheat, dehydrate and air fry any food you enjoy; from a roast chicken and perfectly fluffy roast potatoes to parsnip crisps, dried fruit, and the lot.
The design boasts two large cooking zones—hence the name—so you can cook larger portions, even the whole meal within one device. Ninja has thought ahead, as the dual setting allows budding chefs to mix-and-match cooking programs, which means you can change the cooking time and temperature for both drawers to suit your food and make sure everything is cooked to perfection and on time. Bonus!

What we love most is this larger size and dual-drawer options, which means you can fit a 2kg chicken in one compartment and home-cooked fries in the other, and your meal is done.
But just because one compartment is baking doesn't mean the second drawer has to do the same. You can bake in one, and fry in the other, or trial other cooking options. And you don't have to cook fresh foods either, as you can also cook frozen food under the Max Crisp setting, which reaches a temperature of 240 degrees.
Not only does the Sync setting match up both drawers to ensure they are cooked and completed at the same time, but the Match option can also allow you to double up on portions. Simply place the same food items in both drawers, select Match, and it will cook both drawers at the same setting and in time with one another to help feed all the hungry mouths.
For those who have "the fear" when they hear "fryer" mentioned, with their minds instantly thinking of greasy, oily and unhealthy foods, don't fret! This design uses up to 75% less fat than other frying methods and can cook up to 75% faster than fan ovens.
The design is easy to use thanks to the digital setting, and dial settings, which also include pre-programmed settings to make your cooking session even easier. Each compartment is nonstick and dishwasher safe, so even washing up is easy!
