This Genius Invention Is an Air Fryer & Instant Pot All in One


Are you an Instant Pot devotee? Contemplating jumping into the easy world of instant food prepared by machines? 

Meet the Ninja Foodi OP301 Pressure Cooker, Steamer, and Air Fryer.

It is everything the Instant Pot is plus an air fryer and crisper. It's built by the people who brought you the Ninja bullet blender. It's your new robot chef.

Normally, this thing is a big investment. But right now, it's on sale at Amazon for only $149.99. That's a savings of $100!

  • It's a pressure cooker.

    The Ninja Foodi is a pressure cooker like the Instant Pot. But it will also crisp the food it pressure-cooks. You can cook a whole chicken in 30 minutes. In the Ninja, that chicken will be juicy inside and have a crisp exterior.

    This is taking the Instant Pot idea of pressure cooking to the next level. 

    "Super crispy, juicy, flavorful chicken," saves reviewer H.F. about cooking a chicken in pressure and then crisping it. "OMG. it's so good. I usually pass up doing whole chickens because it can be a hassle...but now I think I'll be getting them all the time. It was just so super easy with this Foodi machine."

  • French fries that are fast and allowed on your diet.

    You can give away your air fryer. Because the Ninja Foodi has that covered. 

    It makes fries with a fraction of the oil used by restaurants, a deep fryer, or any other means of making this addictive, delicious potato treat, because it uses pressure.

    "Our work schedules have been very busy and hectic for over a year now," explains one reviewer. "So we've been eating out a lot. Since I purchased this we are now eating at home again and the food tastes great! Fried chicken not dripping in grease, french fries that are crispy, and the speed in which it cooks is amazing."

  • It defrosts and cooks frozen meats.

    How often do you wish for something for dinner that you have but can't prepare because it's frozen? This is the weak link in menu planning for many of us. The Ninja Foodi, though, can deal with frozen meat. 

    Take it out of the freezer, cook it, crisp it, and eat it in less than 20 minutes. 

    "I just had to try this thing out," says reviewer C.A. "I was impressed with the thing about cooking things right out of the freezer. I'm a chicken wing nut so I grabbed a bag out of the freezer, followed the instructions for wings and to my amazement, 15 minutes later I was eating hot, crispy chicken wings."

  • Cook everything at once in one pot.

    What about side dishes? 

    This is why so many people own two Instant Pots or break out a pan to cook something to go with the chicken that's cooking. 

    But the Ninja Foodi can prep two dishes at once. Put the potatoes on the bottom and steaks on top. One pan to wash -- and it can go in the dishwasher! -- but you have a complete, balanced meal.

    "We are a busy family of three," says reviewer Christopher. "Now that we shop for Foodi dinners, we can whip up a meal in minutes and the food tastes great. Our favorite is wings when entertaining. They are so easy to cook. Just toss them in and entertain guests until it tells you they are done. We have mastered the one pot meals including steak, pork chops, chicken or fish along with potatoes and a veggie."

  • Stews, casseroles, and chili with a crisp top?

    You know you can throw all the ingredients for a pasta dish into a pressure cooker and eat a delicious meal in 20 minutes or so. But the Ninja Foodi will put a crisp top on your mac and cheese. It will melt cheese into your chili. 

    You don't have to compromise anything for speed!

    "This really does do everything," says reviewer Bugs. "I pressure cooked some pork loins in it, drained them after cooking, added some sauce and used the air fryer top. Oh, it put a perfect sticky sweet sauce on those loins. The whole thing cleaned up in less than 3 minutes too when it was time to wash up."

  • Let it handle everything you don't have time to cook.

    When do you have time to wait hours to slow-cook something? Or to roast meats? If you come home from work and need to eat, these foods are nearly impossible with an oven and stovetop. But this pressure cooker-crisper combination can do it in a fraction of the time. And the meats have a crisp finish.

    Eat healthier, every day, without eating in restaurants or getting takeout.

    "I've made a number of meat dishes using the pressure cooker and what normally would take 4-5 hours got done in 90 minutes," says reviewer Stephen. "I've also made frozen french fries, frozen shrimp, hash brown patties, and following the easy directions, all were done quickly and deliciously with maybe a tablespoon of oil!"
