     Weird flapping sound from the inside…. turned it off immediately and stopped using it ever since…. hope to hear from the manufacturer soon or I am returning it!Update (1/28/19): I have been going back and forth with the Ninja customer service team the past 2 weeks and haven’t come to a conclusion yet. If I could i’d take out another star from the review to make it 0 star.Update (2/20/19): Did not hear from Ninja customer service after more than a month, talked to Amazon and got a full refund.

    I have many ninja products in my home and I love all of them! I am sorry to say I was very disappointed with that strong smell of rubber when I use the ninja air fryer. It left a toxic smell throughout my home. My daughter came home and asked if I burnt something rubber. Needless to say I returned it. I was not aware of the rubber parts inside of the fryer when I purchase this

    Been studying air fryers for about two years. Decision was about counters-pace vs basket size. The ninja takes up slightly less space than the stand mixer. It’s lightweight and easy to pull out from under the cabinet to use (to allow for air flow). I like it so much, I wish for a bigger one just to do my entire meal in it at once. For two people, it does a fair amount of wings or tater tots, or the sweet potato fries pictured here. I used the reheat function and the bang bang shrimp came out quite tasty. Steaks came out moist and medium rare, but not seared even on the crisper plate. It has worked well with salmon and chicken breasts. So much easier to clean than a pan and my stove top. It cooked those breaded chicken rounds, fish, and tater tots and in about 10 minutes. Much less time than a toaster oven. The Ninja does not come with added attachments for the grilling or baking as the Phillips, but it’s $200 less. Nuff said.

    I unboxed this a few days ago and followed the instructions for cleaning the basket and crisping tray with hot soapy water. I’ve used five times since and each time it has filled my home with a horrible smell of burning plastic. It doesn’t look like any of the plastic parts are melting, but if you sniff the basket after cooking something the plastic smell is much stronger. I think whatever non-stick coating they use on the basket is releasing the toxic smell when heated. Really don’t think it is ceramic as they claim. Kind of a bummer since it does seem to cook food very well. I would say get this if you don’t mind having a headache from breathing fumes along with every meal.

    I believe the smell was coming from the plastic handle of the basket and it got worse after I pre-heated as the instruction suggested. There are three rubber knots on the inside plate which they strongly recommend you to put it there when air frying. That was surprising to me as there is no information saying it is safe to heat it up. Another problem was the misalignment of the basket outsider. Overall, I was very disappointed and upset about this air fryer. Not sure if I ever want to get one in the future.

    I try not to eat fried food and I never thought I was missing out by not having a deep fryer, so an air fryer just seemed replacement that I didn’t need. So I was skeptical about how much I would use this… maybe a few frozen tater tots or fries for the kids. But oh my goodness I want to use this for everything. I like to think of this as a personal sized convection oven on steroids. Veggie burgers crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. Roasted vegetables, fish sticks, chicken, burgers, fries, fish all with about 30-40% shorter cook times than the oven and only a 3 minute preheat time (vs 6-10 oven minutes).This would be perfect for dorms or couples who want to eat something other than microwaved mush. It’s also perfect for families who want a better way to make “fried” sides like fries, mozzarella sticks, or chicken strips. The clean up is so much easier than cookie sheets. The tub and the browning air fry tray both have a very nice non stick coating making cleanup as simple as a rinse and a wipe.So cons… hmm that’s a hard one. The biggest cons are that you may want to get a few extra kitchen tools like silicon tipped tongs to toss or flip your food and maybe a small 7″ pan for baking if you like the idea of making this your primary oven too. Also you will need to get a feel for how much faster this cooks so you don’t overcook your food, but checking on the food is easy and just a peak away. Once you get your timing right setting the controls is super easy and the timer turns it off automatically and you don’t have to worry about a lot of carry over heat like you do in an oven.OVERALL… I highly recommend it, the Ninja controls are just as simple and intuitive on this as it is on my Ninja blender, it super easy to clean, and it cooks nearly everything fabulously.

    Uno de los mejores electrodomésticos que he comprado, es fácil de usar caso no utiliza aceite y prepara la comida muy rápido y no mata ningún sabor, tiene muchas funciones bastante útiles y se ve muy bien estéticamente cobre la cubierta de cocina.

    En general fue una buena compra, pero siendo muy honesta los alimentos al no tener aceite sí salen secos por lo que no saben tan tan ricos… sin embargo, es muy práctico preparar el pescado o el pollo en la freidora, si tus alimentos son frescos (no congelados) te recomiendo que bajes la temperatura que sugieren en el manual (ejemplo de 350° a 300°) porque sino se te queman muy rápido y que al cabo de unos 5 – 10 minutos máximo monitorees los alimentos para 1. moverlos, 2. saber si es necesario bajar aún más la temperatura o 3. saber si es necesario agotar el tiempo programado o ya parar la cocción. Todo es cuestión de práctica y de aprender a utilizar esa mínima cantidad de aceite correctamente para que los alimentos no salgan tan secos.Recomiendo el producto.

    Really enjoying this air fryer and the food that comes out of it – best chicken wings ever! The only down side is that the pre-set temperatures don’t always match the recipes that I find online (eg, recipe says 380 but my only options are 375 or 390). Not a big deal, but I kind of wish I’d understood air fryers a little better and maybe looked for a model that allowed you to set the temperature to whatever you want. Not regretting the purchase at all, though – it really does produce amazing food.

    No la he probado personalmente, pues fue un regalo para mi hija, pero hoy me comentó que está increíble y que lo que ha cocinado queda crujiente, sin necesidad de usar grasa. Yo compré la Phillips hace 3 años y me encanta, pero ésta llamó mi atención, ya que es digital y la que tengo es manual.

    I love this air fryer. I use it daily. It cooks fast and the food is always moist. I cooked chicken, tilapia, salmon, steak, pork chops, French fries. Everything tastes great. Unfortunately, it does not have a pre-heat button, but I preheat it for 5 minutes before putting food in it.

    En general buena, se siente de buena calidad y calienta bien, no seca la comida como otras freidoras que he probado. Pero el camote y las papas no quedan como si fueran fritas, quedan un poco aguadas.

    If u dont have an air fryer you need one. This one rocks. I like its ceramic coated because I have birds.
