Made by respected manufacturer Ninja Shark, the Ninja 4-Quart Air Fryer (AF100) has an excellent reputation for ease of use, versatility and quality. If you’ve been wanting a moderate sized air fryer (four quarts or about two pounds of fries), the Ninja AF100 is a great option.
Plus, it not only air fries but also roast, dehydrate and reheats. An air fryer can replace several appliances and it looks sharp and will complement any kitchen.
Ninja Air Fryer Design
Like all air fryers, the Ninja Air Fryer 100 uses rapidly circulated hot air to “fry” food without using much oil. One tablespoon is enough to brown food, so you save calories and don’t have a lot of harmful heated oil compounds. Another benefit is that the Ninja air fryer cooks faster than a conventional oven, so you save money in electricity and cooling costs for your kitchen. Air fryers are a big help for busy families!
The unit is BPA-free and uses FDA-approved food-safe plastic. The control panel offers four programmable cooking functions (roast, air fry, reheat and dehydrate) or chooses your own temperature and time.
People cook a variety of foods in the Ninja air fryer including two pounds of fries, small cakes, dehydrate fruit and meat (jerky), steak, salmon and chicken, and roast vegetables. Ninja Air Fryers come with inspiration guides with recipes and ideas. If you like dehydrated fruit or jerky, you don’t need a separate dehydrator. Reheating food in the Ninja Air Fryer is equally simple. Crispy fried food comes out crispy. No over-microwaved leftovers or soggy pizza crust.
Cleaning the Ninja is simple. The basket, rack, and crisper plate are dishwasher safe or can be easily cleaned by hand. The main unit and control panel should be cleaned with a damp cloth. The heating element should be cleaned as needed with a soft brush. The ceramic insert soaks clean and doesn’t include BPA.
