'I will probably never use my oven again': Grab the 12-in-1 Ninja Speedi air fryer while it's just $100 (that's 50% off)

The Ninja Speedi Rapid Cooker & Air Fryer will spare you from a sweltering kitchen this season — and it's down to the best price we've seen at Amazon.

In order for us to recommend an appliance, it's got to be so good that it's worth the precious space it'll take up in your kitchen. And while the Ninja Speedi Rapid Cooker & Air Fryer isn't the most compact gadget on the market, its versatility and ease of use make it a no-brainer for us. After all, it has a whopping 12 functions and the ability to cook multiple dishes at once, saving you lots of time once dinner rolls around. They don't call it "Speedi" for nothing! Not to mention, it's far less likely to heat up your kitchen than if you were to turn your full-size oven on (an absolute boon once those temps start to rise). But what might be most appealing? The price — it's currently 50% off at Amazon!

(Psst: Our tech editor tested it out — check out his full Ninja Speedi review for more.)

This mighty machine has 12 — yes, 12 — cooking functions, which arguably makes it more valuable than a full-size oven. At the very least, it won't turn your kitchen into a sauna...

💰 Why is it a good deal?

At $100 (down from $200), this is the best price we've seen — ever! And considering you're getting what amounts to multiple appliances in one, this really is a sale worth jumping on.

🤔 Why do I need this?

As mentioned earlier, the Ninja Speedi Rapid Cooker & Air Fryer is a very impressive multitasker. It has — *takes breath* — Speedi Meals, Steam & Crisp, Steam & Bake, Steam, Proof, Air Fry, Bake/Roast, Air Broil, Dehydrate, Sear & Sauté, Slow Cook and Sous Vide modes, which means it can take the place of nearly all of your other kitchen appliances. But what really sets it apart from other multi-function cookers is its double-decker design, which allows you to, for example, steam rice on the bottom while air-frying chicken on top. Yes, at the same time. Mind = blown.

Its 6-quart capacity is roomy enough to hold food for four people, i.e. a pound of pasta and four chicken breasts. Plus, the Speedi Meals setting can have food ready in as little as 15 minutes, while the Air Fryer mode allows you to enjoy your crispy favorites with up to 75% less oil than deep frying. Oh, and as far as cleaning goes, the nonstick cooking pot and crisper tray are conveniently dishwasher-safe.

💬 What reviewers say

In case you need more convincing that the Ninja Speedi belongs in your kitchen, take it from some of the 1,200 Amazon customers who gave it a perfect five-star rating.

👍 Pros

"I was so excited when it came in that I meal-prepped for the next five days," shared one happy home cook. "Each meal took about 20 minutes. After I placed everything in the fridge, I turned around and cooked dinner as well. ... I am in love. I will probably never use my oven again lol."

"Best small appliance I own," raved another impressed shopper. "The food comes out perfect. I have difficulty standing long enough to cook a meal, and this little gem is keeping me well-fed and pain-free."

👎 Cons

"We use this at least four times a week!" exclaimed a final fan. "With a newborn and a toddler, I just don’t have the time anymore to make big meals. This takes 15 minutes and it’s an easy cleanup without many dishes! It’s easy to make healthy meals as well, which is a plus. I don’t like that it’s so big, bulky and heavy, but I just store it in our cabinet so it’s out of the way when not in use."

From proteins and grains to veggies and, yes, even fries — the limit does not exist when you've got this gizmo in your kitchen.

One thing it can't do? Make ice cream. But that's what the Ninja Creami is for.
