Bought the single-tray Ninja air fryer from Costco for $99, but thought I'd put my two cents on the brand/product itself:

+ Pre-heats super quick (way faster than pre-heating my oven...)
+ Cooks things super well, albeit fried things are still better...
– Customer service is super hit or miss (first person was fine, the second person was super sketchy...)
– We bought a dud the first time (fan would run, but it wouldn't actually heat up, so I question the longevity of the product)
– The single-tray air fryer is a good size for 1-2 person portions. If you're cooking for a family of 4+, the double-tray is probably slightly better.

TIA
I have the Single-tray Ninja air fryer and I had that plasticy smell the first 5 uses... seems okay now.

That's pretty ignorant. Dumbest thing I've heard today. Air fryers have been around for a long time, people know what it is. Its mostly the safety and convenient form factor that's the selling point. Best way to prepare fast food such as nuggets, wings, fries and much faster too because of the concentrated hot air and can also spray a bit of oil for extra crunch.

Do you think the airfryer, either the single or double, can substitute a toaster oven? My most toasted item is probably leftover pizza, then bagels. Maybe a meat pie here and there. We only have 2ppl in the household but the double might be more convenient.

Too many options but you guys have made me want an airfryer.

I don't even use my toaster oven for that. I simply put it on top of my toaster and reheat the pizza.

I haven't toasted bread or bagels per-se, but I would think they'd be perfect for toasting.

Closest thing for me would be airfrying a frozen jamaican beef patty. Pretty crunchy and flaky, I must say.

Is it easy to clean the heating element upside down and needing to reach inside??
It does not appear that they is a splatter screen beneath the heating element like the Ninja Foodie Grill.
I am tempted to get this though, but not sure how easy to clean compared to Ninja Grill.

Has anyone gotten the kitchenaid airfryer that was sold at costco? Or is ninja still considered better overall?

I just placed an in-store pickup order for the one in OP while I make up my mind.

The one you linked looks more versatile and feel like we'd prefer that. Anyone know if Ninja's site is the same as Shark's where they charge 1:1 conversion rate and no taxes?

Aside... When we're reheating pizza in our home the air fryer comes in handy, alternatively we'll sometimes use our pizza steel with the broiler on. The latter is my favorite, but it's not as convenient.

So what I'm gathering here is that the cooking results are the same as a convection oven.

It makes sense to replace a toaster oven with this because it is much faster, and takes up less space.

The only con being that it can't cook as much did as a toaster oven.

I got the KA oven with airfryer function from Costco. The appearance is fancy and it has 9 pre-set functions including air fryer, dehydrate, toast, bake, broil, bagel, etc.. it is amazing that you could get all in one that saves your counter space.
