While Instant Pots and air fryers tend to take center stage when talking about innovative kitchen appliances, there’s another that stands out among the rest: the Ninja Foodi Grill. And right now, you can get it on sale at Bed Bath & Beyond for $70 off.
The Ninja Foodi Grill has five different cooking functions, making it pretty special. First, it’s an indoor grill, which you probably could have guessed from the name. Secondly, and maybe most excitingly, it’s also an air fryer. And if that’s not enough, it can also bake, roast and dehydrate food.
Let’s say you want a burger and french fries for dinner — this machine has you covered. And if you forgot to defrost said burger, it’s no big deal, because it will transform your frozen patty into a perfectly char-grilled one in about 25 minutes.
Shop: Ninja Foodi 5-In-1 Grill, $169.99 (Orig. $239.99)
The Ninja Foodi Grill is a best seller and retails for $239.99 — but it’s currently on sale for $70 off at Bed Bath & Beyond for Black Friday. While the price tag is a bit steep, it’s not bad considering what it would cost to purchase an indoor grill, air fryer and food dehydrator separately.
Out of 1,740 Bed Bath & Beyond reviews, nearly 80 percent of shoppers gave it a five-star rating. And the reviews are glowing.
“This thing is amazing. It cooks frozen salmon in 7–10 minutes, air fries frozen french fries and tots quickly and cooks chicken perfectly. You will use this often,” wrote one Bed Bath & Beyond reviewer.
“I love this appliance. It has quickly become one of my favorite avenues of cooking both meats and vegetables,” wrote another reviewer. “I especially love the grilling aspect. It heats up, grills the food and tastes great! I love how quick and easy it is to clean it up as well.”
Less enthusiastic reviewers of the appliance called out that it’s quite large in size (17 inch x 14 inch x 11 inch), and while they liked most of the machine’s functions, the grill is not always totally smokeless, particularly when cooking meat.

Don’t discredit the Ninja Foodi Grill’s grilling capabilities just because it’s meant for cooking indoors. The grill has what the brand calls “Cyclonic Grilling Technology,” which basically means that it heats up to 500° F and as food cooks, air circulates around it for the perfect sear. The 10-inch x 10-inch nonstick grill grates fits four 8-ounce burgers or four 7-ounce chicken breasts. And according to the product description, it also has smoke control technology for limiting the amount of smoke it produces.
2. Air Fry
The Ninja Foodi has a 4-quart ceramic coated crisper basket for air frying your food. Compared to deep frying, this process uses 75 percent less oil, so not only is it healthier, but there’s less mess. Plus, you don’t need to worry about where to dispose your cooking oil.
The grill has a “bake” button and comes with a 6-quart nonstick, ceramic-coated cooking pot, which can be used to bake desserts, veggies, meats and more.
Using the “roast” button and 6-quart cooking pot, you can also roast your food. The pot is big enough to fit a three-pound chicken.
The “dehydrate” button is probably not the Ninja Foodi Grill’s most popular feature, but you can use it to create crisp apple or kale chips and more.
