Say hello to the Ninja Foodi Grill – the easy way to cook!

After gawking at all of our air fryer recipes for so long, I finally made the jump to own my very own Ninja Foodi Grill! As a huge bonus, it’s also an indoor grill! After reading all the raving reviews about this innovative 5-in-1 indoor everything, I was totally sold!

I’m excited to share this full review with all of you, plus how you can score a great deal (+ free bonus items!).

I love this kitchen appliance so much that I even created a video! 😍

If you’re a visual person, head over to YouTube to see (and hear!) my first attempt at using the Ninja Foodi Grill!

Now, I’m no recipe blogger like my Hip sidekicks Lina and Emily. But I do cook for my family every day so I know when certain things make life easier in the kitchen and this Ninja Foodi Grill does just that! 🙌

Even better, I don’t have to step outside to grill my food now… I can do it all right in my kitchen! So long, Weber!

Plus, it looks so pretty. So, unlike a lot of appliances, this one isn’t a big old eyesore! I will say, it’s on the heavier side so just make sure you have the storage space nearby when you’re not using it.

Of course, something tells me it won’t be sitting around collecting dust much. 😏

I actually already own a couple of Ninja® Foodi™ appliances – the Ninja® Crockpot (which is basically getting replaced now 💁‍♀️) and the Ninja® Blender.

So, I knew this Ninja Food Indoor Grill was going to knock it out of the park when it came to quality craftsmanship and making great food. And it will most definitely last for years like my other beloved Ninja® appliances.

As I mentioned above, this appliance is a 5-in-1 system. So, it’s capable of indoor grilling, searing, dehydrating, roasting, and yes – even air frying. This also means it comes with all of the perfect accessories to make the magic happen.


The first meal we made was frozen nuggets and fries! #momwin

I broke in my new Ninja Foodi Grill with some frozen sweet potato fries and panko chicken, because what’s more crunchy than panko?!

As I said, I’m no food blogger. During my first run with the Ninja®, I actually forgot the crisper basket for the nuggets and fries – DOH! 🤣

But turns out, even just in the regular cooking pot it still makes incredibly crunchy and delicious food! 👏 #failproof

This thing heats up almost instantly – what a time saver compared to waiting on an entire oven or grill to heat up. Best of all, it doesn’t make my house hot in the process which is a huge bonus.

We even grilled some hot dogs and not only do they cook fast, but they have an incredible taste to them as if they just came off the grill outside! Unbelievable! 

And can we talk about how ridiculously easy clean-up is?!

All of the inserts for the Ninja Foodi Grill including the grill rack are dishwasher safe – grilling and cooking really don’t get any easier!

But even then, food just slides right off the surface, so scrubbing stuck-on food is going to be a thing of the past when cooking with this appliance!

Hip Tip: Speaking of ridiculously easy, you only need 3 ingredients & an air fryer to make these easy-peasy recipes.

Next up… the true test was done with grilling up our favorite fish tacos!

I decided to give this Ninja Foodi Grill the real test and make our family’s favorite meal which happens to be in our weekly meal rotation… fish tacos! If this ended up being a flop, I’m not sure this appliance would truly be living up to its name.

Complete with fresh, grilled cod and crispy bacon! 🤤 (I used Lina’s bacon air fryer recipe so I knew what I was doing.)

This indoor grill stunned me once again! It heated up in about 1 minute and had the cod grilled perfectly in about 7 minutes flat! 😱

For the first time ever, each piece tasted perfectly flaky and it even had a bit of a crunch on the outside which totally transformed the taste of our tacos! 🙌 We’ve been using the Ninja Foodi Grill every week since!

I’ve never whipped up our delicious fish tacos so fast (or so good) in my life! The best part about it all?

It was minimal clean-up once again. The food wiped right off the grill grate and I was even able to throw it all right in the dishwasher so I didn’t need to spend more time washing all the separate pieces. 👏

I don’t foresee this thing making its way to the closet any time soon. I think it’ll have a permanent home right on our countertop because… #easycookingwins #thefoodisalwaysgood

I think we’ll be making this s’mores recipe for dessert next. 😋
