I'm pretty sure it costs less at Costco, but I can't remember the price. I saw it last night.

They do at the Stoney Creek, ON location. It was right next to the air fryer. I hadn't noticed it before until yesterday. I'm guessing it's a very new item at Costco.

Bear in mind that both sites use professional/selected reviewers who receive this unit for $0. IMO this type of rating is a bit inflated compared to the avg of just regular purchasers. Also, CT is collating reviews from Ninja's own website, so that will be a special class of users too. Overall, I've had good products from Ninja though, from blenders to robot vaccuums. They fill that mid-priced product market nicely.

Agreed. But I wouldn't exacly call "third party" sponsored reviews fake. Remember, Amazon started this program in order to counter the huge proliferation of directly sponsored reviews, where people got products directly from the manufacturer who expected favourble reviews, so it was quid pro quo. This type of system seriously threatened the intergrity of Amazon reviews and so they banned it outright. Amazon encourages/requires their Vine reviewers to express what they honestly think about the product and to put themsleves in the shoes of the purchaser. Whether that's really possible or not is up for debate and it probably differs from reviewer to reviewer. It's not perfect, but it's better than the situation years ago where it was trully fake reviews from manufacturers or people who got freebies directly from them in exchange for 5 star reviews.

Also a friend shared that today 5th Sept Canadian Tire has the 20X bonus points which means the actual price will be less the 198$

how much it's occurring i have no idea but i have been informed there is still some quid pro quo (for overly glowing/ fake reviews...however you want to put it) going on. probably much better than before as you mentioned.
regardless, the many positive reviews across many sites should be a good indicator this seems pretty legit.

Question for those of you who actually own the foodi... When it comes to cleaning the lid/top/cover, can it be cleaned effectively? Or, like the tfal actifry, is it not truly cleanable (as it can't be submerged or fully/properly wiped down to remove all grease)?

Also, anyone find a good deal on the larger 8qt version yet?


ps, My local Costco doesn't sell it (been watching for it) but Amazon is matching it right now...

Costco just posted it on their website this week (but only the 6.5qt version & price is higher at $249).

Ninja 6.5qt $249

Here's to hoping the get the bigger one in too, otherwise I'll grab the smaller one when price drops once it's at my local Costco...
