"Just do it!"

I can not believe how much we like this grill. Best steak I was ever able to cook myself! Exactly what it is advertised to be. Air fried fries and fish fillets, 12 minutes from frozen! There should be flip up legs like on a keyboard to change the angle. I can not believe how much we like this grill. It just seems to be a nice upgrade from the previous generation.

Ninja AG301 Final Thoughts

"WITH GRILL Marks!"

If you're on the fence like we were, jump over and get it. This thing is better than advertised. In sum, this Foodi rocks the house. Air frying works the same as my other Foodi, with the same results. Currently you have to unplug the cord from the AC outlet to turn the unit off. I don't know I might have had temp to high. Jan-2020 I just wanted to do a quick update after over 90 days use.

I can't believe how well it cooks and you don't have to deal with grease splatter.

"Wiped excess off."

We also already tried fries and grilling burger. This will not replace your smoker or real charcoal grill. It did smoke to the point my smoke alarms went off 3 times. Put them on the basket, about 12 minutes later, I had fries, crispy and delicious. Making buffalo wings is also a natural- it works. I have to take one of the pieces and find cabinet space for it. It just seems to be a nice upgrade from the previous generation.

"Does a good job."

It cooks at 500 degrees, which makes steaks like butter. Rubber pads on the bottom of the unit legs would also prevent slippage. Making buffalo wings is also a natural- it works. This is where my only complaint comes into play. It's also easy to clean and pretty simple to use. Also grilled a steak and corn on the cob. Maybe, but it does get hot enough to cook fine.

"Cleaning was easy."

This thing is better than advertised. It is big enough to handle a medium sized roast so I'm happy. There's a grease collector on the back of the device that's easy to clean as well. 2 steaks, about an inch thick for 12 minutes, flipped at the 6min mark. I so much love this grill than the smaller two burger version. Hello again, I have used this item extensively since purchase. This one is greatly improved over my first one.

"Great machine!"

Hello again, I have used this item extensively since purchase. Just made a steak and it was to die for. I push a couple of buttons, it does it's thing, and I eat well that night. Wait till it cools, remove the plates and clean them in the sink. Remember, this thing is cooking from both sides with a hurricane of hot air. It works great though, does not overcook or dry out food like my last oven. The power cord is short for safety reasons, that's fine.

There's a grease collector on the back of the device that's easy to clean as well. It makes cooking bacon a fast task that's now enjoyable!

So I bought this after seeing the commercials and definitely not disappointed. I highly recommend this Ninja foodi. Overall, very pleased with my purchase. I also find this version to be so much easier to clean as well. From my morning crispy bacon to homemade fried chicken for dinner. I actually purchased mines from Kohl's! Put them on the basket, about 12 minutes later, I had fries, crispy and delicious.

"This is a great fill-in."

But grilling meats, seafood, etc go just as smoothly. That took about two minutes after warm up to finish up, and the result was fantastic. I hesitate to leave reviews, but this is a product that needed to be shared. It does a little bit of everything- bakes, grills, roasts, dehydrates, and air fries. I used to air fry and it was perfect. Currently you have to unplug the cord from the AC outlet to turn the unit off. I also find this version to be so much easier to clean as well.
