Common Questions about the Ninja Cooking System:
– Can I Deep Fry With the Ninja Cooking System?
No, it’s not made for deep frying. The Idea is to make healthier food with less fat using this unit. However, you can make dishes like eggs or bacon for example.
– Can You Cook Rice with the Ninja Cooking System?
Yes, absolutely. But you might have to keep an eye on it since it cooks rather fast and not like a traditional rice cooker.
– Ninja Cooking System vs. Crock-pot, What’s The Difference?
Crock-pot is a slow cooker, and that’s all it does. You can set it to high or low and set the timer and it will slow cook your food. On the other hand, the Ninja Cooking System is a multi-function system that slow cooks, steams, sears, bakes and keeps warm at different temperature levels.
– Is The Ninja Cooking System a Pressure Cooker?
No, it’s not considered pressure cooker. A pressure cooker, well, uses pressure to cook food. The Ninja Cooking System doesn’t use pressure. It works like your oven, frying pan, slow cooker, but all combined in one unit.
– Is The Ninja Cooking System Dishwasher Safe?
Only some parts are dishwasher safe, like the cooking pot for example. Please refer to the user manual of your unit to make sure which parts are dishwasher safe.
