Ninja offers 2 varieties of air fryer; its dual-zone models have two separate changes of state compartments and a bigger capacity. Whereas the Ninja Air Fryer Max AF160 (known because the Ninja Air Fryer Max XL within the US) has only one change of state basket and is Ninja’s most premium single zone air fryer.

The Ninja Air Fryer Max AF160, which as we’ve already mentioned is referred to as the Ninja Air Fryer Max XL with inside the US, is available via Ninja’s internet site in addition to Amazon and could set you back £149.99/ $159.99 / AU$349.99.

Design and Performance:-

We’re now no longer suggesting the Ninja Air Fryer Max is a small appliance; however as air fryers go, this one doesn’t take in tons counter space, however it’s far tall. It measures 36 x 25 x 32cm / 14. x 14 inches (h x w x d). And if you’d alternatively tuck it out of sight in a cupboard, at 5.2 kg / its mild sufficient for maximum human beings to transport easily. The ceramic-covered cooking basket comes with a detachable ceramic-covered crisper plate; this increases meals off the lowest of the basket, permitting air to flow into and extra fats to drip away. Both are non-stick and may be wiped clean with inside the dishwasher. The basket is prepared with a massive chunky take care of to drag it out, which is likewise beneficial for giving your meals a shake mid-cook.

The easy manipulate panel capabilities a virtual show to depend down the cooking time. Each cooking feature may be decided on with the aid of using urgent the corresponding button and there are extra buttons to regulate the default time and temperature settings in addition to a start/ prevent button and a energy button.

There are six cooking features to select from on the United Kingdom and Australia models, those are; Max Crisp, Air Fry, Roast, Bake, Reheat, and Dehydrate. The US version comes with a 7th feature that is Air Broil. The air fry feature may be set for as much as 60 mins at a most of 210 C / 410 F even as the greater effective Max Crisp feature heats at a fixed temperature of 240 C / 450 F for a most of 30 mins. There aren’t any predefined settings on your favorite meals; however you get a Quick Start Guide with inside the field which incorporates time and temperature tips in addition to oil portions for plenty of meals in addition to 20 recipes to try. However, we’d want to see greater cooking recommendation given for the Roast and Bake features because the manual is missing this info.

No setup is required and with a simple, intuitive control panel and plenty of cooking times, it’s easy to get started with the Ninja Air Fryer Max AF160, even if you’re new to Air fryer. The manual suggests preheating the air fryer for three minutes for best results. So before you add food, set the timer for three minutes and let it preheat. This process isn’t onerous, but it would be great if Ninja could include a preheat setting to make it easier.

Using the quick start guide, we estimated an outdoor cook time of 20 minutes for our hand-cut fries. The guide recommends between 5 to 3 tablespoons of oil, so we went with 1.5 tablespoons, which is more than other air fryer brands require, but by the end of cooking, over 0.5 tablespoons had drained to the bottom of the basket, so less Left over 1 tablespoon in the fries. We’ll whip up the fries three times during cooking, but you’ll need to keep this in mind as the fryer doesn’t ask for it. The finished fries were golden brown on the inside, crispy and fluffy, but we could have shaved them off for a minute. Cooking time or two, as some were a little over the top, said going from raw potatoes to cooked fries in just 20 minutes was a pleasantly quick result.

Frozen steak cut fries cooked to perfection on the Max Crisp setting, and while the pouch offers a 26-28 minute cook time, they only took 12.5 minutes, which is less than half the time is that would be required in an oven. Preheat the fryer for three minutes first and had to shake it a few times, but the result was impressively crispy fries with soft, fluffy centers. When cooking chicken wings, we reduced the recommended cooking time as our portion was much smaller than the guide’s recommended amount of
. It ended up taking 12 minutes and we chose not to add Ninja’s suggested 1 tablespoon of oil to keep the fat could drain into the wings for a healthier option.

We flipped the wings twice during cooking and they developed a crispy skin while remaining moist and juicy on the inside. The hottest temperature we measured on the outside of the fryer was 122 F/50 C, but the handle and control panel stayed cool.

Easy to Clean Air Fryer:-
The air fry was quiet, registering just 50dB on our noise meter, making it one of the quietest fryers we’ve tested to date, and the noise level, which matches general household chatter, is perfectly acceptable. Nothing stuck to the basket or crisper plate during our testing, and both washed well in the dishwasher, although they’re not too difficult to hand wash either.
