1x Ninja Foodi Multi Cooker Air Fryer w/ Tender Crisp and Dehydrator (Refurbished)
@j37hr0 You can air fry all kinds of proteins, marinated meats, tofu, fish, etc.
Makes great bacon sandwiches. Put in a slice (or two) of bread with bacon on top. Cook until ready turning bread/bacon as desired.
The pressure cooker operation is good (pro-tip: press the “keep warm” button twice right at the start and it won’t go into keep warm mode).
Ya’ll, we have one of these and love it so much that i’m considering buying a second for when the one we have passes away. We probably use it 3-5 times a week and the roasting function makes the best possible chicken.
Recommendation for if you get this:
Roast Chicken thighs in it on the rack
Remove thighs and rack
Add rice to the chicken fat that’s in the pot
Use the saute function for maybe 3 minutes or so to wake up that rice in the chicken smaltz.
put in salt and water
use the pressure cook function to make fatty chickeny rice.
@ChrisHBelAir It’s my fav kitchen gadget/appliance. I usually use the air fryer to make food from freezer to plate, but combining pressure cooking and air frying makes for some real magic. I also switched to making my own yogurt at home because of this device. I have mine, but I want to tell people about this awesome tool at an awesome price.
This will be my second one. Purchased one when they first came out. Use it all the time to the point where I’ve started to develop an issue with it not always recognizing that the fry lid is closed. Meh price is waaay better! This will be my backup for when mine finally decides to crap out.
FYI, if anyone decides to buy this you can get much cheaper extended warranties from squaretrade on Amazon (like a fraction of the cost) than you can going directly to squaretrade/allstate. I’m guessing coverage for maybe $10.
Amazon doesn’t advertise Squaretrade/Allstate the way it does Asurion insurance (which typically sucks) but you find can find Squaretrade policies via Amazon search.
I’m not saying Squaretrade is great either, but I succeeded in getting one laptop repaired and another replaced in years past, so I still buy Squaretrade plans if they are on offer cheaply enough.
(Example: just bought a three year 29.99 accidental damage plan on Amazon on a $240 Xiaomi phone Xiaomi and other new global phones typically have no USA warranty coverage).
When I called the Allstate 800 number to find out the terms, they said the plans they sell on Amazon can be used to cover items purchased elsewhere.
But I definitely suggest calling before buying insurance especially for refurbished items as that may change policy terms.
@Artimid@werehatrack Actually it does slow cooking very well; it wouldn’t be great for keeping a pot of hot cider or mulled wine warm, but otherwise it can anything else a crockpot can. Wasn’t sure you were asking seriously or as a joke of some kind…
My question is why are there so many refurbs of this that they needed Meh to unload them?
It’s a new product space (pressure cooker + air fryer combo) so I’m skeptical the refurbs are a design problem that will just break again. HP amd laptop manufacturers are famous for simply replacing a defective part that failed with the same part that still has the same design defect.
Dell did the “replace with identical problematic design” thing with a bunch of the D6xx laptops IIRC; they said that the problem was insufficient solder on the BGA connections, and claimed to have fixed it in later production, but some users were unconvinced. Automotive manufacturers are absolutely infamous for it, and in that environment, things are complicated by the fact that not only does the aftermarket sometimes faithfully copy the original bad design, but the OEM often poorly documents the changes in their after-manufacturing parts lists so that a vehicle fixed under a campaign may end up having the defect restored if the campaign part fails.
@werehatrack HP also had the same thermal management design defects in their laptops. They sued nVidia for shipping defective BGA GPUs, claiming damages from all the replacements they would have to do. Settled with nVidia (i.e. took money to compensate for having to replace GPUs under warranty, then denied claims and never actually spent the money they got for it). Then pushed a BIOS update that just blasted the fans at full speed so their laptops would run out of warranty before failing and denied warranty repairs because the nVidia settlement had NDAs and admitted no defects. Those few that did get a failed GPU and successfully got warranty approval just replaced the motherboard with another identical one, so the laptops had the same thermal design failure since no airflow or cooling changed in the laptops. Oh and they jacked the “warranty repair processing fee” and charged shipping both ways just to be greedy fucks about it.
I will never buy another HP laptop and vote with my money.
I got mine the other day to try it for the first time, and sadly it would not work in any mode. An error shows that the crisper lid is not shut when it clearly is. Very disappointed and annoyed at the prospect of trying to return this bulky paperweight.
