The Ninja Professional Frying System: Review

Love fried foods but hate the guilt? There is now a healthier way to fry so you can indulge in the foods you love without all the guilt.

The Ninja Professional Frying System allows you to prepare your favorite fried dishes with 30% less fat and 40% faster due to its revolutionary heat combination that keeps cooking oil at a uniform temperature, so foods cook to light, crispy perfection with less oil absorption.

Removable enamel oil reservoir, an easy-to-empty oil spout and the lid/oil reservoir are dishwasher safe. Equipped with Cool Zone Technology that keeps oil cleaner for a longer period of time.

Additional features include:

Even though I watch how much of fried foods I eat I had to give this a try. So far I have kept it a gluten free only fryer but since I don't eat a lot of fried foods, it may become a gluten fryer because Mr. LOVES his french toast fried and is begging to make it in this! I know he'd also love some jalapeno poppers fried too.
So far I have made gluten free apple fritters, gluten free churros and of course honey walnut shrimp. The churros were the first to be fried so I was still getting used to how the fryer works. The temp and timer are digital and I learned to just keep the oil hot at 375' for most foods. My churros took forever because I had to the temp too low (see video). Next time I had the temp up and my fritters cooked more quickly. One thing I did notice, is they have you lay the food in the basket then lower it into the oil, but my fritter cooked into the basket holes and were hard to remove lol, so I found just adding the food carefully (with tongs) into the basket/oil made it easier.
The oil heats up quickly and will beep when ready to fry. The fryer basket is a nice size and can hold quite a bit of food. Foods cooked in about 4-7 minutes and came out so golden, crispy and just delicious! Mr. LOVED the shrimp.
This fryer is perfect counter top size and didn't take up much space at all. I kept it out the whole time I reviewed it (over a month or two) because I knew the oil was still good to use (but I tossed it out after the shrimp). I really like this fryer, the basket lid keeps the foods IN the oil allowing the foods to cook quickly and even. I loved the large fryer lid which helped eliminate any dangerous splatters.
This is defiantly one of the funnest kitchen gadgets I have and I know we'll be enjoying more fried foods with this!
Come see our quick little video making gluten free churros!
