The Ninja Foodie Pressure Cooker and Air Fryer of 2019

Imagine owning a contraption that thaws, cooks, and crisps. Food turns out juicy on the inside and crispy on the outside. You’ll only need to prepare it, set it, and forget it. Make a rotissore chicken like a pro, better than you can get at any store. The Ninja Foodie pressure cooker doesn’t cook just chicken either. You can cook pork chops, juicy roasts, stews, casseroles, and desserts.

The Ninja Foodie Pressure Cooker and Air Fryer

It’s one of the new kitchen gadgets that’s getting a lot of buzz. It’s an air fryer and a pressure cooker in one cool contraption. And it’s fast to make dinner, a lot faster than baking or frying. You can cook pork chops in 10 to 12 minutes. A 5 pound chicken can only take about 15-20 minutes to pressure-cook, and 15 minutes to air crisp. After you’re done pressure-cooking, release the valve to remove liquid from the unit. Then baste the meat every 5 minutes during air frying. But also, cooking times varies with every recipe.

Pros – What Makes It So Great and Why You Should Get One:

It’s super neat to have one machine that can do two things!

It’s hefty, well-built, and easy to operate. It’s big enough for a whole chicken or a meal for 5 to 6 people.

Allows you to defrost food straight from the freezer. The pressure cooker will thaw the food, and then cook it, giving you a tender, juicy chicken, or roast. It’s also great for cooking up some soups, stews, and casseroles. I actually tried boiling eggs, and they came out perfect.

It has a neat little display window, that tells you what’s going on with your food, how much longer it needs to cook, etc. It comes with instructions, tips and tricks about how to cook with it, and a recipe book.

It comes with its own frying basket, and the air fryer counts down and shuts off on its own.

You can also lift the air fryer lid at anytime during cooking. This is good if you want to see inside, or to stop the frying, if the food is brown enough to your liking.

When got mine, the first thing I cooked was pork chops and cabbage. I made 2 medium-sized pork chops, and threw in a small head of cabbage (cut up in big pieces), two cups of chicken broth, a stick of butter, steak seasoning, salt and pepper, and it turned out great!

Cons – What You’ll Need to Know Before Buying

The ninja foodie pressure cooker is a big contraption, it will hold a whole chicken. So that also means that you’ll need a lot of counter space for cooking, and a lot of storage space. On top of that, you’ll need to have some space from the walls and the unit. This is because while air frying, steam comes out from the back of the unit.

It will hold a whole chicken, but only has enough room for a four to five pound chicken.

The beeper that tells you when the food’s done is not very loud. You won’t hear it if you’re hard of hearing or in the other room.

While pressure-cooking, the air fryer lid doesn’t come off even if you want it to. The pressure-cooking lid does come off, but then you’ll need to have enough storage space for it. And you’ll need to watch yourself with the valve if you don’t want to get burned by the steam. It’s best to allow your pressure cooker to naturally release!

The cord is just 33 inches long, and it’s not recommended to use an exention cord.

After Dinner

Not just for dinner! The ninja foodie pressure cooker makes good for desserts too. You can make cheesecakes, puddings, pies, and even banana bread. And also, you can put little individual size cups inside to make muffins, creme brulee, and much more!

  1. This Ninja Foodie Pressure Cooker and Air Fryer is a game changer. I own a panasonic air fryer at home and I find it too small for my family. Let just say if I want to cook some chicken it will not fit. Or it will just for the meat but not the vegetables. From my experience, the only thing that I don’t like about the cooker is that it takes a long time to rotisserie the chicken. If I am in a hurry It will be faster for me to cook in a pan instead of the cooker. Oh well it’s the price we have to pay if we want to eat healthy and homecook food right. This will be my new toy, I love the all the ninja products. Thanks for the review.

  2. I have been using an air fryer to heat up food but getting and using a pressure cooker is one of my things on to do list for trying out. The thing about the air fryer I have though is that it can only hold a small to medium portion of food. Is this pressure cooker the biggest pressure cooker available on the market?

  3. Dear Buffy,

    Thanks a lot for the very thorough and comprehensive review post.

    To be honest yesterday my mother-in-law pressure cooker blasted or exploded while cooking, I believe she was using some local and very cheap pressure cooker. By GODS nothing happened to her, I said to her you don’t buy the pressure cooker I will buy it for you. And I was just looking for a pressure cooker and found your helpful post.

    Air fryer and a pressure cooker, two in one option sounds great. I was not aware that we can have both this option together and when I shared your post with my wife she is very interested with Ninja Foodie Pressure Cooker and Air Fryer.

    The pros and cons you shared are very helpful in making our purchase decision. We can make deserts too is just like icing on the cake. Ninja Foodi 1400-Watt Multi Pressure Cooker, Steamer & Air Fryer is on our list.

    Much Success!


    1. Wow, I’m glad she’s ok! Yah it’s best to get a good brand like Ninja. You’re welcome and thank you for your comment!

  4. Hi Buffy,

    Reading about the Ninja Foodie Pressure Cooker and Air Fryer made me hungry already! 

    It certainly sounds like a versatile product and well worth the counter space. Also, I own a Ninja Blender and can speak highly of its quality. Ninja is a great brand and certainly the one I will go with should I decide to buy a pressure cooker/air fryer.

    Thanks for your post.



  5. The Ninja Foodie sounds great. Pressure cookers are wonderful tools but they are pretty specialized and many home cooks do not have them nowadays. Living in a small space I would love to get a tool like this that can take the place of multiple appliances. I do not currently own a pressure cooker or fryer so this would be very handy. 

    I am glad you mentioned some practical considerations with this such as the need for room behind due to venting steam and the 33 inch cord. 

    A pressure cooker or air fryer are good ways to help have a better diet as well. It is easy to fall into the trap of frying everything because it is easy but it is healthier not to. That would be a good reason to get this appliance even if it does take up some space. 

    1. Yah I never had one until now, but I love it! And yes, it’s very good for cooking healthy. Thank you for your comment!

  6. Wow, this is something I think my wife would love to have in her kitchen! She is always so busy cooking, and baking, and needing me to keep washing pots and pans. To have one machine that can do several things makes having other machines obsolete and unnecessary. I’m glad I read this review of the Ninja foodie pressure cooker/air fryer. It sounds so easy I may want to get this for myself.

    Does this machine come with its own recipe guide that lets you know how many minutes to cook different items, like pork chops, steak, fish, etc? When using the pressure cooker will it steam vegetables?

    1. HI Kenneth! I’m glad you liked the pressure cooker! Yes, the recipe book will tell you the exact times. And yes you can steam veggies, it comes with a steamer rack just for that. And it’ll give you instructions for that as well. Thank you for your comment!
