Ninja DT201 Foodi 10-in-1 XL Pro Air Fry: Design & Feel
The Ninja Foodi DT201 is a boxy and large appliance measuring 17.09 x 20.22 x 13.34 inches. This robust cooking machine is housed in a stainless steel box with a glass door for easy monitoring. There’s a black plastic handle containing the electronic controls.
Another thing to love about the design is the control placement at eye level, which makes it easier to see and use. The digital controls are intuitive for easy operation.
These convection ovens are known for incredible versatility, making them suitable for cooking almost anything.
You get a rash of settings and buttons on the oven’s front. The great part is these buttons and settings are fully customizable for a personalized cooking process. Plus, it offers a wide range of cooking modes.
Talking about modes, the Ninja DT201 Foodi 10-in-1 XL Pro Air Fry offers reheat, pizza, dehydrate, toast, bagel, broil, whole roast, roast, bake, and air fry.
These modes are not exactly the same, and the warranty of the option provided makes it possible to cook anything with this convection oven.
As stated earlier, this oven comes with lots of buttons and settings on the front control panel – well delineated and labeled for precise cooking control. Further, it has a digital display to show any cooking-related information – like temperature, time left, etc. for tremendous ease of use.
What else? This oven is equipped with an integrated Food Smart Thermometer, which ensures to detect the right temperature to properly cook your food for sumptuous results. This way, you don’t have to guess or crack your brain.
Down to the oven’s interior, this model comes with a 1,800W heating appliance. While this might not sound like a big deal, consider this model to other large ovens. However, its smaller size and relatively high heat power provide just about everything you need to cook about anything in a fraction of the time.
Cooking with this multipurpose cooking appliance provides you with the convection power for frying up chicken, putting together delicious pizza, cooking a turkey, baking some cookies, etc. Its tremendous convection power should be sufficient to handle any meal thrown at it.
This should have been discussed under the “design and feel” section. However, I want to be detailed about its compactness and portability, making the Ninja DT201 Foodi 10-in-1 XL Pro Air Fry a favorite.
This air fryer is small and mobile, making it easier to find a decent space on your countertop to offer uninterrupted access to your multipurpose appliance. Besides, it’s a perfect fit for small and big kitchens.
However, there’s a downside to this exciting design. Its compact size does not mean a small cooking space that won’t accommodate a massive amount of food at a time. Hence, it’s an ideal choice for a large family or folks looking to cook a large quantity of food at a go.
As mentioned earlier, the digital readout and controls are located at eye level for easy reach and reading. The oven is a no-brainer to program, and the buttons are pretty responsive to the touch.
When you select a cooking function, the control panel indicates the correct oven rack position to use. This oven comes with two sheet pans, two oven racks, a roast tray, a removable crumb tray, and two sheet pans.
Furthermore, it comes with an interior light to allow cooks to keep an eye on the entire cooking process without having to open the door now and then. Although the glass gets extremely hot up to 282 degrees F, the handle remains cool to the touch.
Another thing worth mentioning is the somewhat noisy operation, which seems to be around 62 dBA. Also, most of the oven’s part does not feature a nonstick coating for easy food release and an effortless cleaning experience.
More so, the air fryer basket and racks are dishwasher safe, according to the manufacturer, but it’s best to hand wash them. Although not coated with nonstick materials, cleaning these parts by hand isn’t really tedious.
On top of that, there’s an instruction manual on how best to use this beast. Plus, we find the recipe book very important, especially for people looking to try out new recipes with their air fryer.
