About this deal
Where we are able to keep the appliance for longer, we update our reviews over time with any new features we have found, or issues that may arise. I am a keen baker so I opted for a silicone muffin mould and the tube pan which is like a bundt tin for round cakes. You also know the lid is on properly when the handle is positioned side to side on the pot rather than top to bottom. My cherry tomatoes took about five hours, but I was left with lovely, intensely tomato flavoured treats to add to pizzas, pasta or just eat as a snack. It comes with the built-in lid (used for crisping, roasting and other functions that include browning), then there is a secondary lid to be used for slow cooking and pressure settings which is fitted to the unit when the main lid is open.
With Ninja’s exclusive TenderCrisp Technology, pressure cook tender meals up to 70% faster than traditional cooking methods*, then crisp to give your food a perfect golden finish. Testers were also pleased with the energy efficiency, and the clear digital display panel meant it was easy to know when our dish was ready. Keep Warm mode is not intended to warm food from a cold state but to keep it warm at a food‐safe temperature (75°C) after cooking is complete. It is also worth looking for one with a timer if you can afford an upgrade but I've never personally had one and it isn't a deal breaker.
The Digital Cooking Probe precisely monitors your food’s temperature as it cooks, so you don’t have to – from rare to well done, enjoy perfectly cooked meat and fish, exactly as you like it! You can choose from low, low-medium, medium, medium-high and high heats offering you almost as much control as your standard hob. It’s useful when you want the overall cooking time to be quicker, as it still enables food to be slow cooked. I was most excited to check the Ninja's slow cooking skills to see if this all-in-one could be a replacement for my existing slow cooker. That said, if you need a little more customisation, many of our crock-pots feature varied heat settings so you can pick the one that suits what your'e cooking best.
Hannah has also previously worked in a florist and can normally be found caring for her house plants or sewing something new for her home or wardrobe. You just have to put a bit of water in the pot, place the rack in and put your food on it – out of reach of the water – then add the pressure cooker lid. Press the TEMP button, then turn the START/STOP dial to adjust the cook temperature and/or pressure level. The beef in our stew came out tender and succulent, while the chicken in our curry fell off the bone and absorbed plenty of flavour from the other ingredients. Cooking for a long time at a low temperature also helps tenderise meat and bring out its flavour, so you can get the best out of a less expensive cut.Here I found reviews from people who had roasted whole chickens and joints of meat in it, all agreeing the multi cooker leaves meat crisp yet juicy. From rare to well done, enjoy perfectly cooked meat and fish exactly as you like it with the Digital Cooking Probe.

Before first use, the cooking pot and other removable attachments need a quick wash with warm soapy water.
