The heady blend of energy-efficiency and faster cooking times make it cheaper to cook with a Ninja, affirming their position as a worthwhile alternative to traditional ovens as the cost of living crisis bites.
With Black Friday just around the corner, Ninja is already offering 16 special offers on products across the range, including as much as £90 discounts on selected gadgets and kitchenware, and a special limited additional copper colourway.

The Ninja Foodi MAX Dual Zone Air Fryer is another popular choice that can feed up to eight people and has the capability to air fry, crisp, roast, bake, dehydrate and reheat a wide variety of recipes.
With an apron included and 2 multi-layer racks, this 9.5 liter capacity countertop cooker really is the pick of the bunch. If you can get your hands on one, they are on sale on the Ninja website for just £229 while stocks last.
Several of the limited edition products come with other bonus accessories, including Ninja branded aprons, skewers, coffee and spice grinders, a silicone roasting sling and additional cooking racks.
In a recent review from The Birmingham Mail, the Ninja Foodi MAX Dual Zone Air Fryer went head to head with the Salter dual equivalent, with reviewer Gareth Butterfield recommending the Foodi Max over its competitor for quality of its build and functionality.
More traditional Ninja gadgets with big savings can also be found in the Black Friday sale, including a black kettle and toaster set, reduced by £90 to £159.99 and the Ninja CREAMi ice cream maker, reduced to £189.99.
Favorite product out of stock? Try these instead
As consumers grapple to get their hands on the highly sought-after Ninja brand countertop convection ovens, many retailers are selling out online. In fact, demand for the Ninja Dual Air Fryer special edition was so high last week, the Ninja website crashed leaving buyers in dismay. They are currently also out of stock on the AO and Currys websites.
If you can’t get your hands on a Ninja, or are simply looking to spend a little less, there are alternatives for savvy shoppers to snap up before Christmas. On Amazon, for example, the COSORI Air Fryer is just £109.99 and comes with multiple functions and five-star reviews, while the compact Chefman TurboFry is perfect for solo dinners.
In the middle aisle of Aldi, the Ambiano Dual Basket Air Fryer is an absolute steal at just £89.99. Hailed as an affordable alternative to some more expensive models, the appliance is currently out of stock in shops and online but should be back in stock soon.
