Ninja 3-in-1 6 qt. Nonstick Cooking System with Cookbook and Accessories
Broke after 18 months
If u look back in reviews u will see i gave a glowing five star review after a few months use. I hv had this device for almost two years. I did not use right away. Maybe it sat unopened for six months. I hv used this device, mostly oven option, at least four days a week for about 25 minutes each use. In all I hv been using it for about 18 months.
Two days ago it started not heating up correctly. I put stuff in it to come back barely cooked still with ice crystals from freezer. I tested again with cooking hamburger on oven setting and it did fine. Then last night i did the spaghetti receipe. The sauce was at low bubble as normal but the pasta did not cook. It feels like one side is not heating up.
It has always clicked a few times during cooking cycle but it clicked alot last night. I think it shorting out or off & on but the timer stays on.
I paid $139 for mine plus shipping. It totally unacceptable to me for it to malfunction within 18 months for such an expensive device. Its great while it works but you have to look at long term use probability when paying a preimum price.
We called this device the magic pot cause we used it for everything. I almost ordered a new one last night but then surfed for other makes. If the life span is less than two years on these devices then i will just go with cheaper device.
Of course the warranty is just a year. Its all on me now. I am totally disappointed this device did not last at least make it to three to five year mark. At $139 thats $70 a year I paid to use this device. That's just too crazy for my budget.
ninja cooking system
I received my ninja just before we went camping last week and we cooked some ribs that were absolutely fantastic. They were so tender and you would never know they were not cooked on the grill. I received my cooker in just 3 days and I use it all the time for soups, vegetables, etc. Love it
Best Purchase Ever
I use this more then my stove or oven. It holds a good size roast with the vegetables and comes out so tender when you slow cook it. So glad I purchased this!
Must Have Counter-top Appliance
LOVE this. Sear, then able to prepare rest of meal in one pot, never losing the good fond, so flavor is not lost. So fast, easy clean up, slow cook, steam roast, bake, what's not to like. The recipe/ cookbook is great but I have used many of my own recipes just by changing a few things around. So fast, oh did I state that already. Very pleased with all the results.
QVC has done it again! Greatest kitchen appliance. Cooks everything great and love the easy clean up.
Now I Love To Cook!!
What a great idea this is. You can brown your meat, add additional ingredients, set it to slow cook, and dinner is ready when you want it. That's not all, if you have people eating at different times it keeps food hot after the timer goes off, this is wonderful. It's the best thing I have purchased for cooking. Can't live without it, easy cleanup too!!
Wonderful Kitchen Appliance
I received the Ninja 3 in 1 appliance two weeks ago and absolutely love it. I debated a long time before buying it because I had a perfectly good crock pot and it seemed silly to purchase new BUT I'm so glad I did. Have used the slow cooker function and the searing/browning function. It would be worth the purchase just for the browning alone. No extra skillet to clean and more importantly no stove to clean. The pot is deep enough that no spatters reach the counter. Trying the baking/roasting mode next and I have no doubt it will be as great as the others. Clean up is a breeze and all the extras that come with this are a welcome bonus.
I absolutely love this crock pot. All the settings work great. The cook book that came with it comes in handy. I love that you can cook anything/everything in the crock pot and all comes out nice and moist. I would never buy another crock pot again. I use this at least 3 times a week if not more. You will not be disappointed!
Just received my Ninja 3-in-1 last week and made my first pot roast in it this week-end and it was great! I started with the searing of the roast on the stove top setting and then switched over to the slow cooker setting, added veggies and 4 hrs later we had the best pot roast. Tonight I made the Hearty Skillet Lasagna from the cookbook that came with my Ninja and I have to say it was pretty good. Even my picky eater said it was good. I have to say, I will be using my Ninja on a regular basis. Ea my clean up! Love it!!!!
Don't understand the negative reviews. I have purchased two of these Ninja Cooking Systems and have been very pleased. I bought this last year the first time I saw it on QVC. Got one for me and the other for one of my daughters. Thinking very seriously of ordering a third one for a Christmas present for my other daughter . Love my Ninja, keep it setting on the counter and use it all the time. Very simple to use and the clean up is a breeze. I have used the Ninja a lot more than I have used any of my other "cooking systems" like crock pots , etc.
I received my Ninja 3-in-1 last week. I have used the oven function as well as the slow cooker option, and it has done very well. I would recommend!

This product truly lives up to its TV presentations. And, more! It is not an "expensive crockpot". The uses are endless. I've made bacon & eggs; pizza; rotisserie chicken;and the famous Mississipi pot roast. The oven feature does cook quickly and heats quicker than your home oven, so you do need to tend to it. It's a learning curve worth learning!
