Why I Love My Ninja Foodi

I received a Ninja Foodi XL Air Fryer Oven for Christmas from my daycare parents and it’s been a game-changer for making all kinds of recipes in the kitchen!

I have used it nearly every day since the glorious day it was gifted to me. My daycare parents are the greatest! I was overwhelmed they bought it for me even before I knew it was a miracle machine. I have probably turned my regular oven on 3 times since then and I used to use it daily.

It’s going to be super great this summer when I can make Ninja chicken recipes and I don’t have to heat up the entire house like the regular oven does. It cooks everything faster, easier, and crispier. 

I can even cook nine pieces – that’s right, nine pieces! – of toast at once. Since there are nine of us (seven daycare kids, plus my husband and I), that’s a huge help for me.
