Ninja have become one of the go-to kitchen brands for many of us in recent years thanks to their multi-cookers, ice cream makers and most notably, their dual air fryers which we’re huge fans of here at Yours. However, as much as we love the air fryers, there are so many more Ninja products to add to your kitchen.

They specialise in bringing you high-quality kitchen appliances and tools that make prepping and cooking food in a healthy way much easier. Plus, their prices aren’t all that extortionate compared to other brands.

Whether you’re totally new to the brand or already have one of their air fryers and want to try out some of their other popular kitchen gadgets, we’ve rounded up the best Ninja products for your kitchen including the Ninja Speedi, Ninja Foodi and more, along with honest product reviews and thoughts from the Yours team.

The best Ninja air fryer

The Ninja Foodi Dual Zone AF300UK Air Fryer is the UK's top-selling dual-zone air fryer, and it’s no surprise. This premium kitchen appliance features two cooking drawers with a combined 7.6-litre capacity, making it suitable for cooking different types of food simultaneously. The standout features include the Sync and Match functions, which allow users to cook different dishes in each drawer and synchronise them to finish at the same time, enhancing convenience and efficiency. Its major selling points are its superior build quality, ease of use, and the health benefits of cooking with minimal oil.

The air fryer includes six pre-set cooking functions—Air Fry, Roast, Reheat, Dehydrate, Bake, and Max Crisp—allowing for versatile meal preparation. Our tester Arabella loved many features of this air fryer including the Max Crisp function for exceptionally crispy chips, lightweight drawers with easy-to-use handles, auto-shutoff for safety, and dishwasher-safe parts for effortless cleaning. The main downside she found - as other testers did - was how large it is, meaning it might not be the best choice if you have limited counter space. 

A newbie to air fryers, Arabella found the controls clear and the Quick Start Guide helpful, particularly for beginners. The Ninja Foodi’s dual drawers, each with a 3.8-litre capacity, can handle a variety of foods, and the Sync function ensures simultaneous cooking completion. 
Despite its higher price compared to competitors like the Salter Dual Air Fryer and Instant Vortex Plus VersaZone Dual Air Fryer, the Ninja Foodi Dual Zone AF300UK stands out for its reliable performance, build quality, and user-friendly design. It remains a favoured choice for those seeking a versatile, efficient, and stylish air fryer.

One reviewer said, “Lots of options to choose from but you can always go ‘manual’ too if you’ve pre-cooked some ingredients etc. Fantastic appliance if you’re trying to eat healthy and make smoothies for your pre/post work outs and if you want a low calorie lunch in a form of a soup!”
