IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS

HOUSEHOLD USE ONLY

Read all instructions before using your Ninja® Air Fryer.
When using electrical appliance, basic safety precautions should always be followed, including the following:

WARNINGS

  1. This appliance can be used by children aged from 8 years and above and persons with reduced physical, sensory or mental capabilities or lack of experience and knowledge if they have been given supervision or instruction concerning use of the appliance in a safe way and understand the hazards involved.
  2. Keep the appliance and its cord out of reach of children less than 8 years.
  3. To eliminate a choking hazard for young children, remove and discard the protective cover fitted on the power plug of this appliance.
  4. Children shall not play with the appliance.
  5. NEVER use socket below counter.
  6. NEVER connect this appliance to an external timer switch or separate remote-control system.
  7. DO NOT use an extension cord. A short power-supply cord is used to reduce the risk of children less than 8 years grabbing the cord or becoming entangled and to reduce the risk of people tripping over a longer cord.
  8. To protect against electrical shock DO NOT immerse cord, plugs, or main unit housing in water or other liquid. Cook only in the pan provided or in a container recommended by SharkNinja placed in the provided pan.
  9. Regularly inspect the appliance and power cord. DO NOT use the appliance if there is damage to the power cord or plug. If the appliance malfunctions or has been damaged in any way, immediately stop use and call Customer Service.
  10. ALWAYS ensure the appliance is properly assembled before use.
  11. DO NOT cover the air intake vent or air socket vent while unit is operating. Doing so will prevent even cooking and may damage the unit or cause it to overheat.
  12. Before placing removable cooking pan into the cooker base, ensure pan and cooker base are clean and dry by wiping with a soft cloth.
  13. This appliance is for household use only. DO NOT use this appliance for anything other than its intended use. DO NOT use in moving vehicles or boats. DO NOT use outdoors. Misuse may cause injury.
  14. Intended for worktop use only. Ensure the surface is level, clean and dry. DO NOT move the appliance when in use.
  15. DO NOT place the appliance near the edge of a worktop during operation.
  16. DO NOT use accessory attachments not recommended or sold by SharkNinja. Do not place accessories in a microwave, toaster oven, convection oven, or conventional oven or on a ceramic cooktop, electric coil, gas burner range, or outdoor grill. The use of accessory attachments not recommended by SharkNinja may cause fire, electric shock, or injuries.
  17. When using this appliance, provide adequate space above and on all sides for air circulation.
  18. ALWAYS ensure pan is properly closed before operating.
  19. DO NOT use the appliance without the removable cooking pan installed.
  20. DO NOT use this appliance for deep-frying.
  21. DO NOT place appliance on hot surfaces or near a hot gas or electric burner or in a heated oven.
  22. Prevent food contact with heating elements. DO NOT overfill when cooking. Overfilling may cause personal injury or property damage or affect the safe use of the appliance.
  23. Socket voltages can vary, affecting the performance of your product. To prevent possible illness, use a thermometer to check that your food is cooked to the temperatures recommended.
  24. Should the unit emit black smoke, unplug immediately. Wait for smoking to stop before removing any cooking accessories.
  25. DO NOT touch hot surfaces. Appliance surfaces are hot during and after operation. To prevent burns or personal injury, ALWAYS use protective hot pads or insulated oven mitts and use available handles and knobs.
  26. Extreme caution must be used when the appliance contains hot food. Improper use may result in personal injury.
  27. Spilled food can cause serious burns. Keep appliance and cord away from children. DO NOT let cord hang over edges of tables or counters or touch hot surfaces.
  28. The pan and crisper plate become extremely hot during the cooking process. Avoid physical contact while removing the pan or plate from the appliance. ALWAYS place pan or plate on a heat-resistant surface after removing. DO NOT touch accessories during or immediately after cooking.
  29. Cleaning and user maintenance shall not be made by children unless they are older than 8 and supervised.
  30. Unplug from socket when not in use and before cleaning. Allow to cool before cleaning, diss asembly, putting in or taking off parts and storage.

CLEANING & MAINTENANCE

CLEANING YOUR AIR FRYER

NOTE: NEVER immerse the main unit in water or any other liquid. NEVER clean the main unit in a dishwasher.

The unit should be cleaned thoroughly after every use.

  1. Unplug the unit from the wall socket before cleaning.
  2. To clean the main unit and the control panel, wipe them clean with a damp cloth. Do not use a scouring pad.
  3. The pan, crisper plate and any accessories can be washed in the dishwasher.
  4. If food residue is stuck on the crisper plate or pan, place them in a sink filled with warm, soapy water and allow to soak.
  5. Air-dry or towel-dry all parts after use.
  6. When cleaning heating element or scrubbing is necessary use a non-abrasive cleaner or liquid detergent with a nylon pad or bristles.

HELPFUL TIPS

  1. For consistent browning, make sure ingredients are arranged in an even layer on the bottom of the pan with no overlapping. If ingredients are overlapping, make sure to shake them halfway through the set cook time.
  2. Cook time and temperature can be adjusted at any time during cooking. Simply press the up and down TIME or TEMP arrows to adjust the time or temperature.
  3. To convert recipes from your conventional oven, reduce the temperature of the Air Fryer by 10°C. Check food frequently to avoid overcooking.
  4. We recommend 3 minutes of preheating. You can use the built-in timer to set a 3-minute countdown.
  5. Occasionally, the fan from the air fryer will blow lightweight foods around. To alleviate this, secure foods (like the top slice of bread on a sandwich) with cocktail sticks.
  6. The crisper plate elevates ingredients in the pan so air can circulate under and around them for even, crisp results.
  7. After a cooking function is selected, you can press the START/STOP button to begin cooking immediately. The unit will run at the default temperature and time.
  8. For best results, remove food immediately after the cook time is complete to avoid overcooking.
  9. For best results with fresh vegetables and potatoes, use at least 1 tablespoon of oil. Add more oil as desired to achieve the preferred level of crispiness.
  10. For best results, check progress throughout cooking and remove food when desired level of brownness has been achieved. We recommend using an instant-read thermometer to monitor internal temp of foods. After the cook time is complete remove food immediately to avoid overcooking

TROUBLESHOOTING GUIDE

• Why won’t my temperature go any higher?
The max temperature is 210°C.
• How long does it take to preheat and how will I know when it’s done?
We recommend 3 minutes of preheating. You can use the built-in timer to set a 3-minute countdown.
• Should I add my ingredients before or after preheating?
It is recommended to let the unit preheat for 3 minutes before adding ingredients.
• Do I need to defrost frozen foods before air frying?
It depends on the food. Follow package instructions.
• How do I make the countdown pause?
Press START/STOP.
• Is the pan safe to put on my worktop?
The pan will heat during cooking. Use caution when handling and place on heat-safe surfaces only.
• How do I know when to use the crisper plate?
Use the crisper plate when you want food to come out crispy. The crisper plate allows for food to be elevated in the pan allowing for air to go under the plate and evenly crisp ingredients.
• My food didn’t cook.
Make sure the pan is fully inserted during cooking. For consistent browning, make sure ingredients are arranged in an even layer on the bottom of the pan with no overlapping. Shake loose ingredients for even crispiness. Cook time and temperature can be adjusted at any time during cooking. Simply press the up and down TIME or TEMP arrows to adjust the time or temperature.
• My food is over-cooked. For best results, check progress throughout cooking and remove food when desired level of brownness has been achieved. Remove food immediately after the cook time is complete to avoid overcooking.
• Why is my food blowing around when air frying?
Occasionally, the fan from the air fryer will blow lightweight foods around. To alleviate this, secure foods (like the top slice of bread on a sandwich) with cocktail sticks.
• Can I air fry wet battered ingredients?
Yes, but use the proper breading technique. It is important to coat foods first with flour, then with egg and then with bread crumbs. Be sure to press the bread crumbs onto the food with your hands. Because the air fryer has a powerful fan as part of its mechanism, breading can sometimes be blown off. Pressing the bread crumbs firmly on will help them adhere.
• The unit is beeping.
Your food is done cooking.
• The screen went black.
The unit is in standby mode. Press the power button to turn it back on.
• An “E” message appears on display screen.
The unit is not functioning properly. Please contact Customer Service at 0800 862 0453.

FAQ’S

Why is the Ninja® Air Fryer so quiet?

The Ninja® Air Fryer uses a powerful, high-speed fan to circulate the air around food. This circulating air is what makes food crispy and delicious. The circulating air is also what makes the Ninja® Air Fryer so quiet.

What are the advantages of using an Air Fryer?

An Air Fryer allows you to cook foods with little or no oil, making it healthier than traditional frying methods. It also allows you to cook foods quickly and evenly, which means that your food will be cooked all the way through instead of just on the outside like traditional frying methods.

How do I use my Ninja® Air Fryer?

To use your Ninja® Air Fryer, simply plug it in and press one of the preset buttons for a variety of delicious meals in minutes! Your Ninja® Air Fryer will automatically adjust time and temperature for perfect results every time!

How do I clean my Ninja® Air Fryer?

Your Ninja® Air Fryer is dishwasher safe (top rack only). You can also hand wash it with warm soapy water. NEVER immerse cord, plugs or main unit housing in water or other liquid. NEVER use abrasive cleaners or scrub pads as this may damage your appliance’s nonstick coating. If any parts are damaged or broken, please contact us at 1-800-722-0235 for a replacement part.

What Cannot be cooked in Airfryer?

Any food with a wet batter should not be placed in the air fryer. You also want to avoid putting food that has a wet batter, like corndogs or tempura shrimp, in air fryers.

Can you cook eggs in a ninja air fryer?

The answer is an absolute yes! Air frying eggs is actually a very easy hands-free method. Just like you can make boiled eggs in the oven, you do not need to use any water in cooking the eggs, as the air fryer does all the cooking!

Can you put raw meat in Airfryer?

Though you likely feel comfortable cooking pre-cooked meats that just need to be heated in an air fryer, it’s always a good idea to double-check safety guidelines for cooking raw meat. According to Kitchen Snitches, the good news is that it is absolutely safe to cook raw meat in an air fryer.

What is the best meat to cook in an air fryer?

As with all dry-heat cooker methods (grilling, broiling, pan frying and oven roasting), tender beef cuts perform best in the air fryer. Those cuts include Top Sirloin, KC Strip, Ribeye, Tenderloin and Tri Tip. Ground beef also can be easily prepared in an air fryer

Can you cook burgers in air fryer?

Yes, air frying hamburgers works for both fresh and frozen! It just takes a little more time to cook is all. I did lower the temp by 10 degrees so that the outside doesn’t cook too fast before the inside gets done. So either way you make your burgers, they’ll be perfect every single time!

Can you put liquid in a Ninja Air Fryer?

The simple answer is yes, you can put water in your air fryer. If you know that the foods you are cooking are going to drip fat down into the pan below, you can put water into the base.

How many wings can fit in an air fryer?

You also can use this recipe to make whole chicken wings in the air fryer: place the wings in a single layer (you’ll be able to fit about 3 whole wings at a time). Air fry at 250 degrees F for 15 minutes, then increase the heat to high and air fry at 400 degrees F.27

Can you use metal in an air fryer?

You can use any ovenproof dish or mold in the Airfryer, whether it is made of glass, ceramic, metal or silicone.

  1. Good day.
    I bought the AF300EU hot air fryer and tried a few recipes.
    I am very happy with the results.
    I would like to print out the cooking tables in a larger font.
    It would be very nice if you would send me a copy of the cooking tables in PDF format to my email address.
    MfG Friedbert Schmitz

    Guten Tag.
    Ich habe mir die Heißluftfritteuse AF300EU gekauft und einige Rezepte ausprobiert.
    Bin sehr zufrieden mit den Ergebnissen.
    Ich würde mir gerne die Kochtabellen in grösserer Schrift ausdrucken.
    Es wäre sehr nett wenn Sie mir ein Exemplar der Kochtabellen im PDF-Format an meine Mailadresse senden würden.
    MfG Friedbert Schmitz

  2. My Air Max fryer will not turn on. The control panel does not light up. I checked the outlet and the breaker did not trip. I unplugged the unit and waited a day to plug back in, still will not work. I wiped off the top and bottom of the basket to make sure it fits in the fryer properly; I can hear the click when I put the basket into the fryer. Is there a reset button or a place I can take it to to get repaired? I have had this fryer since December and we use it almost daily, but I don’t want to spend another $160 for a replacement. Please advise

  3. The fryer leaves a burnt plastic taste to all the food, all the trays are washed, but I don’t know if anything needs to be washed apart from the trays where the food is placed. PS: When it is in operation it also smells of burnt plastic, which it transmits to the food to be cooked.
    La freidora deja un sabor plástico quemado a toda la comida , todos las bandejas se lavan , más no sé si se tiene que lavar algo aparte de las bandejas donde se coloca la comida. PD.Cuando está en funcionamiento también huele a plástico quemado mismo que le transmite a la comida a cocinar .
