Ninja air fryer ?
« on: January 06, 2020, 12:09:06 PM »
Son got us a Ninja 4qt air fryer for Christmas. So far have done steak, frozen hash brown patties, tater tots, chicken breasts, all with good results. Looking for tips, recipes, accessories and ideas. Looked at a few on you-tube. Thinking about some game hens in the future and some steel-head. Any body with experience or favorites ? Hoping to be able to surprise the wife with something other than my awesome elk camp cuisine  :chuckle:

do you find there is a "burning rubber smell" as several of the amazon reviews state? have you done any fried fish yet? Im in the market for an air fryer as my wife does not enjoy the lingering side effects standard fish/squid fry up on the stove.

Chicken wings. Air fryer chicken wings will change your life. Okay not that good but my air fryer get used for wings probably 2/3rds of the time I turn it on.

We got ours around Halloween time, and have been trying different things. Leftover pizza is way better in the air fryer.
The wife does hard boiled eggs and says they are easier to peel.
Battered fish is crisp, or other battered foods too.
The girls did those big pretzels the other day.
I really enjoy tots or fries from it.

As to the smell, run it through a couple hot cycles before you cook anything, then wash the interior parts well. Been good ever since.

Like Zuus mentioned, We washed everything well then ran it through 3 cook cycles and washed again. No smell at all. We did some rib meat and baby red potatoes last night. Turned out great. Thinking about doing some Jalapeno poppers soon. Love the idea of frying without all the grease or oil. Ours will roast and dehydrate as well. My sons unit came with a big recipe book and he says he cant remember the last time he turned on his oven. Might have to find me a recipe book.

I have a cusinart combo oven/air fryer that we got for christmas. The air fryer portion is pretty cool and works well on potatoes. I will say that the oven portion runs hotter than my old one so like others said, trial and error is good when getting used to it

Got the same Cuisinart. Salmon and steelhead is fabulous. Fresh cut french fries the best. Did country style spare ribs that were great too. Dont use the oven much anymore.

how did you do the ribs? What temp and how long did you run your salmon? I have a bunch in my freezer I was going to smoke but would like to try this as well

We bought the Ninja Foodi 9 quart, 9 in 1 Air fryer, pressure cooker, etc...
tonight we just did French fries, they turned out pretty good. We did a smoked turkey breast air cooked for Christmas, that was awesome. We have not used it a whole lot, but so far we like it a lot. We are doing hot and spicy chicken thighs tomorrow night.

Please post up the recipes you guys like!
I am not much for cooking multiple things (meat and different veggies) together at the same time. I believe each dish/item should have its own foo or not a combination of everything.
My wife thinks I am nuts.

The smoked turkey breast.
Brined the skin on breast overnight in the fridge. 
Brine was a “3, 2, 1, brine”, 3 cups apple cider, 2 cups brown sugar, 1 cup salt, and seasoning as you wish.
Rubbed breast with Garlic Olive Oil.
Added BBQ rub.
Smoked for four hours with heat off. Smoker temp was about 150 degrees.
I smoked six breasts a couple weeks ago and froze them. So I had to thaw this breast out to Air Fry it.
Air fried about an hour at 360 degree, flipped at half way point, until 160 degrees internal temp.

We had incredible turkey sandwiches for a week, lol

Last night we just did some frozen breaded chicken breasts and tots. Put the chicken breasts whole on hamburger buns with lettuce and tomato and some miracle whip. Made for a good sandwich.

The thighs crisp up really nice on the bake setting 350 for about 40-50 minutes

I cooked chicken thighs in our cuisinart last night, just used the bake setting. Turned out perfect, chicken wings are super fast using air fryer about 6 min each side, I like them crispy on both sides, I add spices and sauce after cooking since wife doesn’t like Spicy.

Lumpia is ok with air fryer, it crisps the outer skin unevenly but it’s cooked all the way thru.

Burgers are easy on the bake setting, plus the grease separates from the burger.👍

We did the Cornish game hens the other night. Was a tight fit for two but worked out well. Sprayed lightly with olive oil and dusted with McCormick's Montreal chicken seasoning. We were unsure of the time so here's the way the experiment went. Roast setting at 360* on their sides. 10 mins, check, 10 mins, flip birds to other side, 10 mins, check temp again, flip birds to their backs then 6 mins to get the temp where she wanted it. Turned out great, Best game hens we have had :drool:. Next time I'll stuff some lemon wedges in them.

I did this last weekend, I used bone in skin on thighs. Air fried them for 20 minutes at 400 then baked them at 350 in the regular oven for 20 minutes. Put a Cacciatore sauce over them and served. The kitchen was crispy on the outside and falling off the bone. I like this thing.
