Frying food is by far one of the tastiest foods you can have! We all know that is delicious, but we also know how bad it is for our health, especially when consumed regularly. Luckily for us, nowadays we have air fryers, that allow us to fry food using a lot less oil, which results in healthier food. We already had the opportunity to review the Philips Viva Airfryer HD9220, and to continue our research for the perfect air fryer, we decide to bring you the Ninja Air Fryer review.
The Ninja Air Fryer is one of the top-of-the-line units you can find on the market. With 4 Qt capacity, this air fryer is designed for a family of 3 to 5 people. As a top-of-the-line unit, this fryer offers many options that are not found on standard units. Some of these features include a dehydration setting or even a reheat setting.
Starting with the dehydrator function, this is a great addition to the versatility of the AF101. The gentle temperature of 105 ºF (40.4 ºC) is great to make fruit slices or beef jerky. This setting adds a different dimension that most other air fryers don’t have. But this mode is not the only good thing you can find in this equipment.
Another great plus in the Ninja AF101 is the nonstick ceramic basket and grill. This coating is extremely durable, it does not scratch easily and it can withstand a temperature of 800 ºF (426.7 ºC). Made from inert materials, this ceramic coating won’t have any of the chemicals that are associated with Teflon coatings. Although the ceramic coating is more durable and safer than Teflon, they can shatter, so it is recommended to use wood or plastics utensils.
A common problem of an air fryer is the hot air they released during the cooking process, which can damage some surfaces. With the Ninja AF101, you will not have this problem because it does not vent hot air through the bottom while cooking. This feature will allow you to place it on any countertop as there is no heat coming out of the bottom. But be aware, because the sides of the AF101 get hot while cooking, so when cooking make sure there’s enough ventilation and that nothing flammable is around.

These settings turn a standard unit into one of the premier air fryers you can find on the market. Having the ability to choose the type of cooking you are going to do and then set your time and temperature adds great versatility to this product.
