Ninja SP101 Digital Air Fry Countertop Oven with 8-in-1 Functionality, Flip Up & Away Capability for Storage Space, with Air Fry Basket, Wire Rack & Crumb Tray
Ninja SP101 Foodi is air fryer/convection oven/toaster that’s equipped with 1800 watt heating element and can cook in temperatures as high as 450°F (most air fryers have maximum temperature of 400°F). It’s also the only oven type air fryer in this article as all of the rest are basket type.
Cooking: Ninja SP101 Foodi cooks fast and is relatively quiet. Most of the time food comes out delicious however sometimes results might be not quite what you expect.
One of the flaws is that temperature doesn’t seem to be perfectly distributed inside the air fryer. This can result in some parts of food you are cooking to be overcooked or undercooked. This is not something you will notice always but it can be a small issue sometimes.
Another flaw is that sometimes food might not come out as crispy as it would with other air fryers or even worse – it can become dry on inside. Again, this is not an issue every time you cook, but sometimes it can happen.
Another thing that’s perhaps not a flaw but rather a nuance is that the cooking chamber is wide and deep yet shallow. For some types of meals this design works better however it also limits you in a way that some types of food might not fit inside.
With that being said Ninja SP101 Foodi works well most of the time but occasionally results can be a bit disappointing. Once the food has finished it will make bell sound to notify you that food is ready.
