A step up from Ninja's best-selling Foodi Dual Zone Air Fryer (which received a glowing review from us here), this new clever piece of kit promises to transform dinner time and is one of the most versatile models on the market right now.
Although relatively new, the air fryer has already racked up over 1,000 five-star reviews and is available at numerous stockists, including Ninja, John Lewis and Amazon. Keep reading to find out why the innovative gadget deserves a spot in your kitchen, and is worth the splurge while it's on sale.
Why we rate it
First off, and probably the air fryer's biggest selling point, is how it's been designed to allow users to use it as a traditional two drawer air fryer, where you can cook two foods, two different ways, in independent cooking zones at once. Or, converted into one extra-large MegaZone drawer by removing the divider inside, and cooking up an extra large large portion of something you love.
The additional space means you can cook a variety of larger foods that wouldn't normally fit in a traditional air fryer, giving you endless options on what to cook next.
For example, you can fit a whole 2kg leg of lamb with roast vegetables inside, or a 2.3kg rolled shoulder of pork with crispy potatoes. Cooking a roast dinner for the whole family has never been so quick and easy.
The air fryer can fit enough food in it for up to eight people, which is one of the largest capacity air fryers we've ever come across. In comparison, the original Foodi Dual Zone Air Fryer has a 7.6L capacity, whereas this model has an extra-large 10.4L.
Boasting seven cooking functions, including Max Crisp, Air Fry, Roast, Bake, Reheat, Dehydrate and Prove, it's perfect for larger families. Plus, it uses 45% less energy than a conventional oven, so you may find your energy bill reduces a little too.
Not only that, the drawer, divider and crisper plates that are included are non-stick and dishwasher safe, so cleaning up is also a breeze.
What the reviews say
Shoppers have been singing its praises for its spacious capacity and speedy cooking times. It's even rated an impressive 4.8 out of 5 with many customers saying it's "outstanding".
"This has really made life around meals so much easier. It cooks in half the time and is so versatile with the two separate zones which can convert to a big single zone."
"Good construction, easy to use, information booklet helpful. Navigation of cooking options, choices easy to understand. Get one, make yourself your own recipe toasted sandwiches, I guarantee you won't want to do sandwiches any other way. Great buy."
"I absolutely love my new Ninja AF… I bought the FlexDrawer and it’s so much more practical having the choice of mega zone or dual zone. Highly recommend."
"This is a brilliant piece of kit for the kitchen. Never used one before I bought this, now we cook almost everything in it. Chicken is so succulent. I'll never roast it in the oven again. Takes half the time to cook meals and a bonus is hardly any washing up."
"Fantastic product! Works like a real oven using the MegaZone part. Can get full legs of meat in them. Also when using them as two drawers they are much bigger than standard air fryers!"
