It’s been more than two years since the Ninja Foodi Multi Cooker came into my life. This kitchen appliance can air fry, slow cook, pressure cook, grill, steam, bake and roast, and it cooks quickly and with no mess. See our full review of it below.
I don’t cook, and I definitely didn’t think that I’d like or use any kitchen appliance so much; but the Ninja Foodi Multi Cooker became one of the most useful gadgets at home, and it’s simple enough for anyone to use — even for a non-chef like me. My Primary school kids can easily toast up chicken nuggets on their own, while dishes like bak kut teh that previously took 4 hours on the stove now only requires 30 minutes in the Multi Cooker under the pressure cook mode.

Last month, Ninja Foodi refreshes the Multi Cooker with an 11-in-1 (it can do more things) and very importantly — it has an all-new SmartLid. With the previous version that I have, there’s a separate lid that needs to be used when pressure cooking or steaming; and the lid takes up a bit of space when not in use. With the new SmartLid, there’s no “extra” lid to change and store, which makes this new model more compact and seamless when changing modes.
The 11 cooking functions include pressure cooking, slow cooking, air frying, grilling, baking, dehydrating, searing and sautéing, steaming, steam air fry, steam bake and yoghurt.

The Ninja 11-in-1 has the same capacity of 6L as the previous models, which is large enough to cook a whole chicken; plus it also has a removable cooking pot that’s super easy to clean.
And if you need recipes to get started, the SharkNinja website has tons.
The family particularly likes grilling salmon, which only takes a few minutes to do. The meat inside stays moist, while the skin is nice and crisp.

You’ll need some counter space to place this gadget, but this is a purchase for the kitchen that you won’t regret. It’ll replace your microwave, toaster, stove and oven, and you’ll be showing this off to your friends when they’re over.
The Ninja 11-In-1 SmartLid Multi-Cooker is priced at $608, and available from the brand’s WEBSITE and on their official store on SHOPEE.
