What is A Ninja Foodi Grill

The Ninja Foodi Grill is a pretty awesome kitchen appliance. Not only can you grill, but you can dehydrate, air fry, bake, and roast.

It is a 5 in 1 appliance that allows you to do a lot using one device.

How to use Ninja Foodi Grill

  • Select what you want to cook.
  • Use the proper container – grill for grilling, remove that for air frying and baking.
  • Use the selections on the front, to pick if you want to grill, air fryer, bake, dehydrate.
  • Then cook as the recipe directs.

How to Clean Ninja Foodi Grill

Cleaning has been really easy for me! I was shocked how all the pieces come out and you can really clean all pieces with soap, water, and a soft sponge.

The Ninja grill air fryer has a really nice enamel that wipes away food. The one issue is the grate that is attached to the top, it can trap in grease. I take it off between each use, let it soak, then wash as well as I can.

Common Questions

Pros Of The Ninja Foodi Grill

  • Sturdy grates and pieces, that really seem to be nice quality.
  • I love how you can air fry and grill in it, or bake!
  • When I made Jalapeno Poppers it tasted so similar to on the grill, it was delicious.
  • The grill I bought had the Foodi smart Thermometer! It is so handy knowing when food is ready to pull off.
  • The grill plate is really heavy duty.
  • Super easy to clean with the coating they put on the grill and inner basket. It wipes clean really easily.
  • You can get nice grill marks on steak, chops, chicken just like an outdoor grill.
  • We use this to dehydrate jerky and it works great.

Cons Of The Ninja Indoor Grill

  • It does take a bit to preheat, so take that into account.
  • The inside is a bit smaller than I had hoped for. I could only fit 2 steaks in, so if you have a larger family you will have to batch cook.
  • The Ninja Foodi Grill XL is a bit bulky so you need space to get the lid open and closed. I ran into issues with our cabinets.
  • For grilling, you will not get the same flavor as a seasoned grill would.

So if you are in debate on this Ninja air fryer and Grill I do recommend getting it.

My Tip – If you are looking for a multi-purpose tool, go for it! If you only want to grill on it – you can always find a larger indoor grill to buy if you have a larger family to feed and don’t want to batch cook.
