The Ninja OP301 Pressure Cooker is a 6.5-quart capacity pressure cooker, steamer, and air fryer. Also known as a Foodi, the OP301 has a second lid with Tendercrisp technology. The crisping lid lets you give your air-fried food a finishing touch with a crispy outer texture and a golden color.
Speedy cooking is one of the Ninja Foodi’s most significant advantages over conventional cooking. Pressure cooking is up to 70% faster, and air frying is as much as 75% quicker than regular baking, roasting, and frying. Air frying is healthier than deep-frying or pan-frying because air frying requires only a tiny amount of oil, typically sprayed or wiped on the food. A 6.5-quart ceramic-coated inner pot is easy to clean and can cook a roast for a large family. The included 4-quart Cook and Crisp Basket, which is also ceramic-coated, can cook up to five pounds of chicken or three pounds of french fries.
Usually $250, the Ninja OP301 Pressure Cooker is just $120 for this sale, an astounding 52% discount. If you’re looking for a powerful and versatile combination pressure cooker and air fryer, this is a chance to buy an extremely popular, highly-rated Ninja at an excellent price.
