[Costco] Ninja Air Fryer *BACK IN STOCK* $109.99

A popular item during the pandemic. Regular price but definitely cheaper than any other store out here.

Was out of stock this morning and noticed it just came back in stock now. This will sell out quickly.

We have this model and absolutely love it. It is one of the few gadgets that earned some real estate in our kitchen. We make fries in it, chicken, wontons, reheat pizza slices and all sorts of stuff. We use it consistently every week whereas the Instant Pot is busted out a few times a year now. This one is easy to clean and has held up pretty well, we've also been pleased with the results. It does not ping your cell phone or have any other silly nonsense but it's a great buy at $100 or less IMO.

Air Fryers are just convection ovens. Don't buy into the marketing.

I bet if it wasn't for you, there would be people thinking OP's price was a hot deal (me included). But I think 4qt is a bit too small for my need.

We got this at the $80 a few months ago.
For this $100 price, get a bigger one, corsori on amazon or one of many brands out there being sold on costco.ca or elsewhere.

Reviews for the convection oven style ones have been mixed from what I have seen but if someone has experience with both styles, I'd love to hear your thoughts.

And no, contrary to the other guy's statement, it's not like a convection oven, the air circulation is way more intense. Crispier and faster. To compare, my parents have a brevielle smart oven and I have a miele convection wall oven.

It's more than just the fries, chicken wings and ready-made frozen foods. we use ours for veggie sides all the time.

Recently bought the Ninja Dual Zone Air fryer (which is twice as big as this one) and so far we’re loving it. Fries were way crispier and not burnt, much better than when we bake them in our convection oven. There definitely seems to be a difference from a convection oven based on our experience so far.

We have this one, got it in store way cheaper at the start of quarantine... It's decent, but a bit small if you're trying to cook for more than two people tho.

+1 Both use same technology: Consumer Reports

Just test out your existing convection oven first (especially cooking for more than 2 people) before deciding to add another dedicated appliance for air frying.

Those ovens they tested have an air fry feature.

If you have an oven that has an air fry button then sure you might wanna use that. Older convection ovens have a slow convection fan thats only good for baking though.
I personally wouldnt use a full sized oven to make french fries or 2-3 serving meals. seems a little energy inefficient but thats just me..

The article also stated: If your convection oven doesn’t specifically have an air fry setting, you can still get similar results. “Try using the convection roast setting,” says Tara Casaregola, CR’s test engineer in charge of ranges, cooktops, and wall ovens. “Use a dark or nonstick pan in the oven to get better browning than you would from a glass dish or a shiny aluminum pan.” Darker bakeware absorbs more heat in the oven than a shiny, reflective pan. In turn, darker bakeware will radiate more heat onto foods, helping them brown.

Also, someone mentioned this Costco air fryer is too small for 2 people so you may be better off using a convection oven.

If I was living alone or cooking for myself only, I would certainly buy a smaller dedicated air fryer (like this Costco one) for energy savings and simplicity.

I have an air fryer similar to this one. I was really skeptical about it. Few things

- It takes about 40 minutes to do half a package of the fresh costco chicken wings. They do come out quite crispy
- it works amazing on french fries takes about 20 minutes a batch
- I would recommend this if your cooking for about 3 people or else it will take some time. For example a family 2 kids 2 adults it will take some time.
- I find sometimes it can almost dehydrate some of the food a bit.
- super easy clean up
- works great for bacon, again it dose take some time.
- it really dose use hardly any oil
