Thought I would bake canned biscuits without turning on the big wall oven, so, I read where you preheat the foodi for 5 min. Bake for 6 (jumbo biscuits)

Turned out perfect.

 

Another point for the Foodi. Really glad it's meeting my expectations.

 

I've pressure cooked, air fryed and now baked biscuits all in one machine gave it a work out since I bought last Thurs.

 

Thumbs up !

Re: Ninja Foodie observation

I've did a chuck roast, (shouldn't of used the air crisp I learned that) done the roast great, but, dummy Shark had to brown it it dried it out that air crisper is one strong do dad LOL

 

Did a chicken showed that picture done it well.

 

Did french fries that was really great. No deep frying, no half gallon of oil to heat up and have to dispense with, spray the frozen fries with veg oil and air fry for 8-10 minutes. You can lift the air crisping lid all You want to during the process to however brown you prefer. It retains temp and time left so you don't have to reset the machine.

 

Did canned biscuits put in rack place in the pot set temp to 350' and timed my jumbo biscuits for 6 minutes. Since I used jumbo size just got in 4.

Regular biscuits could probably do 6. As fast as they cook fix 4-6 at a time while your eating the first 4 or 6 the others will be done in few minutes

 

I've got the 6 qt one, if you get the bigger one probably do a bigger batch at a time.

 

Salmon on Friday !

Thanks for sharing @SharkE I was thinking about getting the Ninja Foodie for my mom...this sounds like a good kitchen all-in-one. I just brought her a 6QT Instant Pot but this sounds even better!

Re: Ninja Foodie observation

Wish they would make them in colors. Q might introduce them down the line, but, got tired of waiting and wanted it before I went to nursing home. LOL

 

I got 12 ft long counter with a ledge on top of the counter where I put all my kitchen helps. Like I stated before the Foodi isn't for the weak folk.  If it was light I would think it flimsy and cheaply made, so, being 'heavy' doesn't bother me. I use to cut and load firewood from logs, so, I'm no stranger to heavy stuff.

 

I'm glad I bought mine who wants to turn on oven in Tx heat let the Foodi pressure cook it, take that out , then, take the lid off, lower the air fry lid and air fry french fries or salmon, etc. I hope I can do green tomatoes this summer in it no frying in oil.
