Air Fry Anytime
01 Less Mess - no oil means no splatter
02 Healthier than deep frying
03 It’s versatile - you can so so many things!
04 Energy & time efficient
05 Fast, safe and easy to use
06 Crisp & crunchy food
With an air fryer, you place the food in a fryer-style basket and hot air rapidly circulates all around the food, making the food crisp—much like deep-frying, but without the oil.
Right off the bat, the Ninja Max XL has a considerably smaller footprint than most large or “XL” air fryers. It’s 14″ x 11″ x 14.75″. This comes in handy when counter space is an issue.
Although some might consider its 5.5-quart basket size small, we found it comfortably holds most of the foods we want to make in it – from a full bag of french fries, to chicken wings for 4 people, to a whole 4-lb chicken.
01 Max Crisp
03 Air Fry & Reheat
04 Air Broil
05 Air Roast & Bake
Thankfully the functions are as simple as pressing a button and setting the timer.
01 Its digital display screen is easy to read and understand.
02 The drawer is easy to remove and very lightweight.
03 The 5.5-quart size is pretty perfect for 2-6 servings.
04 There’s a Pause button that allows you to stop the fan.
05 Clean-up is a breeze.
06 Food crisps up better in this air fryer
One of the most critical aspects of using an air fryer is user-friendliness. We’re happy to say that the Ninja Max XL shines in this category.
01 I wish it had a halfway reminder.
02 The beeping is rather annoying
03 Pretty big holes so small food like seeds fall through
04 You can’t keep bread from flying around in the basket.
05 No inner basket
As with any appliance, there will be a few cons that you have to deal with alongside the pros.
None of the cons are deal-breakers for me and the pros far outweigh the couple of things I didn’t like. I have very much enjoyed using the Ninja Max XL and do think it has earned its spot at the top. So, should you consider adding the Ninja Max XL to your kitchen? Ultimately the choice is yours and depends on your individual needs.
