STAR IN THE HOOD
there is a Gotham Steel TSV on the 29/06/21
The plates do come out, but Ninja advise rinsing / pre-soaking before putting in the dishwasher:Do the plates come out to be hand washed or put in dishwasher? I've had so many gadgets that I've chucked out because every time I come to use it, it is filthy because Mr CC is too lazy to clean it after he's cooked burgers/bacon/bloody anything. Trying to clean dried on fat with kitchen roll and washing up liquid before I can even make anything is just a NO. If it can't be properly washed by someone else) then it's not for me.
I have a Samsung combi oven with an airfryer function. I use it to cook a 1.8kg chicken in 35mins. I also have a 1.6l Tower Airfryer to cook anything else such as roasties whilst the combi has the chicken in it. The tower has a very small foot print. I can’t be doing with taking stuff out of the cupboards.It seemed to sell out very early, then even the extra AO did too.
I have the Tefal rotary air fryer and use it a lot. It is great for chips and firm sausages, but useless for things like fish fingers and fish fillets and anything not very firm as the rotating blade tears them to pieces.
So I have gone for this, even though I'm not confident that chips will be OK without the rotation.
I also bake part-baked rolls and bread, and it takes over 15 minutes to get my oven up to 200 deg, and then only 8 minutes to bake them, so a ridiculous waste of time and electricity.
I can foresee lots of use for it, but it's too big to keep on the worktop, and even to store it while not in use. It did seem to be genuinely £50 cheaper than everywhere else, and FREE PP for a change.
BTW I have at least 3 other Ninja items, and they are all very good quality. When I had a problem with a smoothie maker, they sent me a whole set of blender cups and the blade, so excellent CS at that time.
