Ninja Foodi Grill Review

Are you on the fence about buying a Ninja Foodi Grill? If you are thinking is it worth buying or not, let me help share my thoughts on the grill. This is a great way to see how it works, my overall thoughts, and I have tested and tried this kitchen device and put it to the test! 

Investing money in kitchen appliances is always worth checking out so you can ensure it is worth the investment. This Ninja Foodi Grill review will help you to see is it going to fit your needs. 

What is the Ninja Foodi Grill

The Ninja Foodi Grill is an indoor grill that you can use for all your cooking needs. This grill is really nice. It is a smoke-free grill that you can use indoors so you get that beautiful grill-marked food all year round. 

What All Does The Ninja Foodi Grill 

  • Grills food
  • Air Fryer capabilities
  • Roasts 
  • Bakes
  • Dehydrates 

 What Type of Food Can You Cook In The Ninja Grill

  • Dehydrate fruit like apples, pineapple and more. This is a great way to eliminate a dehydrator in your kitchen and utilize this tool. 
  • Grill your favorite foods. Steak, chicken, pork, seafood and more. A great way to get that sizzle, sear, and grilled food flavor. 
  • Bake a side dish, dessert and more. You are able to treat this Ninja Grill just like you would your oven which is incredible. 
  • Roast vegetables and meats and other side dishes. 
  • Air fry wings, chicken, side dishes, and so much more. I love the air fryer feature to cook food, and the grill does a great job. 
  • And so much more. 

Are Parts Dishwasher Safe on The Ninja Foodi Grill

Yes, you can actually take pieces and run them through your dishwasher. This is something that I really like. As you know cooking can leave a greasy film on food, and sometimes a good run through a hot cycled dishwasher is just what it needs. I found this perk a huge plus. 

Is There A Downfall To The Ninja Foodi Grill

As I mentioned in my video, the lid is heavy, and you have to watch it, so it doesn’t tip over. It is a bit top-heavy, so that is something you need to remember. 

The size isn’t overly big, but you do have to find a place to store it. Whether in a cupboard or on top of the counter. I haven’t felt any of this as a deal-breaker for me personally. Other than that I haven’t come across any other negative thoughts on it. 

How Long Does It Take to Heat Up 

It only takes around eight minutes for the grill to heat up. If you think about that, it is a fast heat up time. You can be prepping your meat or ingredients as it is heating up. 

Overall I really love this Ninja Foodi Grill! If you are a lover of multi-purpose appliances, this could be one that you can add this to your holiday wish list!

Would you recommend this for someone cooking for one. I would probably mainly use for cooking meats. I tend to burn/overlook my meats in a frying pan or on my old George Forman grill.

I am looking at the Food Grill Pro which comes with extra accessories and wondering if it is worth it? Have you cooked veggies, or made a cake? Of so, were you happy with the results? When you grill chicken does it create a nice flavor, or just give the grilled look? Thanks

I purchased the Ninja Foodie Grill after watching a television commercial. I called the 1-800 number for their sales department. After giving my credit card information to the technician she proceeded to sell memory unrelated items. One deal after another. I specifically said, I do not want anything other than the grill. Later I realized that I one of those offers was billing my bank account. After contacting Ninja I was told that I could not be disenrolled into the program that was billing my account because it was from a 3rd party vendor.And, I could no longer contact the sales department. At this point I was speaking to people in different departments and they couldn't fix it. All in all I will say that the grill is a good product. BUT, by the grill from the store. DO NOT BUY it from NINJA.

I have been trying to find out if the Ninja foodi grill grilling grate and the pit are made of aluminum. I know they are ceramic coated, but I need to know what is under that. My husband is deathly allergic to aluminum and I need to know before I cook him a meal in it. The company said they would call me back but never did, they just kept saying they were ceramic coated and I explained why I needed to know. Yhey treated me like I was an idiot.

I have the Ninja Foodi Grill but not the one with the pressure cooker in it. I wanted to make a pot roast and turned it to roast and 350 degrees. It cooked from the top and bottom and even turning it as low as it would go still resulted in overcooking. Most of the recipes suggest the pressure cooker method. How do I make mine in just the roast method?
