Ninja 3-in-1 Slow CookerOn October 27, 2017 by 101administrativeprofessionalsday
The Ninja 3-in-1 Slow Cooker isn’t just a slow cooker, which is why we hold it in such high regard. It’s ideal for those looking for something that can be used as multiple things; it’s especially good for foods that you want to sauté. Looking for a multifunction slow cooker? Well then this one is a great option.
Whilst there’s a chance that you haven’t heard of Ninja or their products, they are a reputable brand that have risen to the forefront of the cooking world with their innovative products that are difficult to match. This particular model is designed to be either used as a compliment to your oven, or it has enough power that it could actually be used as the primary cooking method in your kitchen. If you’ve ever tried to use a slow cooker as your sole cooking method, you will know that this isn’t ideal. But with the added functions of the Ninja 3-in-1, it’s entirely possible to use this one as the only cooker in your kitchen. This makes it ideal for students or people living in smaller accommodation, as you won’t need to fill the entire kitchen with appliances.
- It has triple fusion heat technology, which helps the Ninja 3-in-1 to cook your food to optimum temperature as fast as possible
- The oven can have any cooking temperature between 250 and 425 degrees
- The stove has three functions; low, medium and high.
- The pot itself can hold a bird up to around 6lbs, which is roughly 2.5-3KG if you’re in Europe.
Features of the product
This isn’t just a slow cooker or crock pot. This is also a versatile machine that can cook your food in a variety of different ways. The 3-in-1 refers to slow cooking, steaming and sautéing, which in our eyes it does very well. It’s excellent for searing meat and sealing in the delicious flavors.
The stovetop has three different settings; high, low, and buffet. Buffet is for when you want to keep your food warm, but isn’t cooking. High is ideal for searing meats, and low is great for cooking vegetables over a longer period of time.
Excellent multi function
This could easily be the only cooking appliance that you have in your household, and that wouldn’t be an issue. Whether you cook mainly meats, vegetables or anything else, this appliance can deal with it.
Most of this slow cooker is dishwasher safe, apart from the roasting rack and lid, which is not. Ideally you want to be hand wash these items anyway, to make sure that they last a long time.
Ideal for students
Due to the multifunction and decent yet portable size of the Ninja, this would make an ideal gift for a student or someone who is in temporary accommodation. It’s certainly a space saver, by means that you no longer need certain other appliances.
It gets really hot
The Ninja definitely gets a bit hotter than the average slow cooker, which isn’t a problem if you know about this already. It isn’t anything wrong with the cooker, it just uses far more energy as a multi function cooker than what a 3.5 quart crock pot would use.
It will take you a while to get used to
If you aren’t used to using something like this, then it will take you a while to get used to it. Be careful of the steam pouring out when you take the lid off!
The Ninja is the new kid on the block in comparison to older products from Crock Pot and Hamilton Beach, but by no means is it inferior. If you’re worried about spending this amount of money on a slow cooker, then remember; it’s not just a slow cooker! You are getting so much more for your money, which in our minds, makes it totally worth its slightly higher price tag.
