Ninja® Cooking System

I've been cooking with a Slow Cooker for 40 years and I love it - pop everything in in the morning, and then you're good to go.

But this cooking marvel is more than a Slow-Cooker and I can't wait to use ALL the features the Ninja® Cooking Systemit provides. First of all, I totally love that even just using it as a slow cooker will eliminate a lot of extra pots and pans. Being able to sear meat before cooking all day is great because the searing locks in the juices so the meat is tender and moist.  And putting all that stuff together in one fell swoop for spaghetti?  Who would have thought?

The Ninja people were kind enough to send me one for review. Last night I made a dish with boneless pork chops, rice and a special sauce Tripp made. It was perfect.  Tomorrow I plan to roast a chicken. 

I think this would be a great blessing to a senior or someone at college. While it's a little pricey, the number of things it does makes it especially useful for someone without a stove top or oven.


Who has time to cook healthy meals? As schedules heat-up this Fall, the new Ninja® Cooking System is the perfect dinnertime solution to help keep your cool - saving time and serving up easy, healthier meals, all from one convenient countertop pot.  Now, it's possible to make complete meals - layering the main course, vegetables, and pasta or rice inside the Ninja® Cooking System pot - in just 30 minutes, even from the freezer, cutting cooking times by as much as 30 to 50 percent.


·         Steam-Infused Roasting and Baking - Revolutionary steam roasting and baking provides quicker cooking, plus healthier and moister results. Steam-infused roasting cooks meat evenly and cuts the cooking time by up to 30 percent, keeping more natural juices in the meat while taking the bad fat out.  Baked goods are more moist too, and can be prepared with up to 50 percent less fat.


·         Fast One-Pot Meal Making - With Triple Fusion Heat, complete meals can be made in just one single pot. Home cooks can layer meals by cooking dry pasta, veggies and meats all at the same time in the Ninja 3-in-1 Cooking System. Meats cook more evenly and casseroles have a savory and crispy finish, with more crunch on the bottom and sides.  Frozen seafood and other frozen items can even be prepared in 30 minutes.


·         SEAR-ious Slow Cooking - The Ninja Cooking System has both stovetop settings and slow cook settings which allows the home cook to use the same pot to sear and brown meats and vegetables to add more flavor to the meal. The stovetop can be used after slow cooking to deglaze sauces, and to add delicate vegetables for a perfect texture. The slow-cooker is programmable; allowing you to set the cooking time, which will automatically keep warm once cooking is complete.

WOW! My crockpot is one of my best friends, and I'm usually not a fan of having extra, unnecessary gadgets in the kitchen. Especially if they are a one-trick pony. But this looks like a multi-tasking powerhouse! Would be amazing for feeding a family.
