I have been using the Ninja Air Fryer (AF101 Series) for 6 months and it is still my #1 kitchen appliance to date. I decided to purchase the air fryer because I was getting sick of the cleanup and the slowness of the convection oven.
What is Air Frying?
An air fryer is a kitchen appliance that cooks by circulating hot air around the food using the convection mechanism. The fan circulates hot air around the food at high speed, cooking the food and producing a crispy layer. It takes less time to bake or fry than a traditional convection oven.

Ninja Air Fryer Review
The Ninja Air Fryer is extremely versatile. You can air fry, dehydrate, reheat, or roast. This air fryer offers a 4 quart chamber which roughly fits 2 pounds of veggies. The temperature ranges from 105°F–400°F allowing you to lightly cook or crisp foods. The clean up is easy and it is even dishwasher-safe. The multi-layer rack allows for added versatility, but to be honest I rarely use the rack. I typically use this air fry to fry veggies, steak, fish, or chicken. For vegetables it gives it a crispy coat. The one food I typically avoid air frying is burgers since it typically dries them out. I love frying wings since I find wings to be extremely messy when cooking in a frying pan and painstakingly slow when cooking in an oven. I highly recommend this air fryer.
