WARNING

  1. This appliance can be used by 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. Do not allow the appliance to be used by children. Close supervision is necessary when used near children.
  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 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 pot provided or in a container recommended by SharkNinja placed in the provided pot.
  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. Before use, ALWAYS check pressure release valve and red float valve for clogging or obstruction, and clean them if necessary. Check to make sure the red float valve on the pressure lid moves freely. Foods such as apple sauce, cranberries, pearl barley, oatmeal or other cereals, split peas, noodles, macaroni, rhubarb, or spaghetti can foam, froth, and splutter when pressure cooked, clogging the pressure release valve. These and similar expanding foods (such as dried vegetables, beans, grains, and rice) should not be cooked in a pressure cooker, except when following a Ninja Foodi recipe.
  12. DO NOT cover the air intake vent or air socket vent while crisping lid is closed. Doing so will prevent even cooking and may damage the unit or cause it to overheat.
  13. To prevent risk of explosion and injury, use only SharkNinja Silicone rings. Make certain silicone ring is installed and lid is properly closed before operating. DO NOT use if torn or damaged. Replace before using.
  14. Before placing removable cooking pot into the cooker base, ensure pot and cooker base are clean and dry by wiping with a soft cloth.
  15. 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.
  16. Intended for worktop use only. Ensure the surface is level, clean and dry. DO NOT move the appliance when in use.
  17. DO NOT place appliance on hot surfaces or near a hot gas or electric burner or in a heated oven.
  18. 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.
  19. When using this appliance, provide adequate space above and on all sides for air circulation.
  20. ALWAYS follow the maximum and minimum quantities of liquid as stated in instructions and recipes.
  21. NEVER use SLOW COOK setting without food and liquids in the removable cooking pot.
  22. DO NOT use the appliance without the removable cooking pot installed.
  23. DO NOT use this appliance for deep frying.
  24. DO NOT cover the pressure valves.
  25. DO NOT sauté or fry with oil while pressure cooking.
  26. Prevent food contact with heating elements. DO NOT overfill or exceed the MAX fill level when cooking. Overfilling may cause personal injury or property damage or affect the safe use of the appliance.
  27. When pressure cooking foods that expand (such as dried vegetables, beans, grains, rice, etc.). DO NOT fill pot more than halfway, or as otherwise instructed in a Ninja ® Foodi™ recipe.
  28. DO NOT use this unit to cook instant rice.
  29. To prevent food contact with the heating elements, DO NOT overfill the Cook & Crisp™ Basket.
  30. Use extreme caution when closing the crisping lid, taking care that nothing is caught in or pinched by the hinge.
  31. 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.
  32. DO NOT place the appliance near the edge of a worktop during operation.
  33. To avoid possible steam damage, place the unit away from walls and cabinets during use.
  34. Should the unit emit black smoke, unplug immediately and wait for smoking to stop before removing the cooking pot and Cook & Crisp™ Basket.
  35. 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.
  36. Extreme caution must be used when the cooker contains hot oil, hot food, or hot liquids, or if the cooker is under pressure. Improper use, including moving the cooker, may result in personal injury. When using this appliance to pressure cook, ensure the lid is properly assembled and locked into position before use.
  37. Caution should be used when searing meats and sautéing in hot oil. Keep hands and face away from the removable cooking pot, especially when adding new ingredients, as hot oil may splatter.
  38. When unit is in operation, hot steam is released through the air socket vent. Place unit so vent is not directed toward the power cord, sockets, or other appliances. Keep your hands and face at a safe distance from vent.
  39. DO NOT attempt to open the lid during or after pressure cooking until all internal pressure has been released through the pressure release valve and the unit has cooled slightly. DO NOT tamper with, disassemble, or otherwise remove the red float valve or pressure release assembly.
  40. When using SLOW COOK or SEAR/SAUTÉ settings, ALWAYS keep the pressure lid closed and the pressure release valve in the VENT position. If the lid is closed and the pressure release valve is in the SEAL position, an audible alarm will sound. “VENT” error code will appear on LED display to signal the need to turn the pressure release valve to the VENT position.
  41. When using the PRESSURE COOK setting, ALWAYS keep the pressure lid locked and the pressure release valve turned anticlockwise to the SEAL position.
  42. If the lid will not turn to unlock, this indicates the appliance is still under pressure. Any pressure remaining can be hazardous. Let unit naturally release pressure or turn the Pressure Release Valve slowly to the VENT position to release steam. Take care to avoid contact with the releasing steam to avoid burns or injury. When the steam is completely released, the red float valve will be in the lower position allowing the lid to be removed.
  43. Spilled food can cause serious burns. Keep appliance and cord away from children. DO NOT let cord hang over
    edge of tables or counters or touch hot surfaces.
  44. ALWAYS keep hands, face, and other body parts away from the pressure release valve prior to or during pressure release and when removing the pressure lid after cooking. Serious burns can result from the steam inside. ALWAYS lift and tilt the lid away from you when removing.
  45. When removable cooking pot is empty, DO NOT heat it for more than 10 minutes, as doing so may damage the cooking surface.
  46. The cooking pot, Cook & Crisp™ Basket, and reversible rack become extremely hot during the cooking process. Avoid hot steam and air while removing the cooking pot and Cook & Crisp™ Basket from the appliance, and ALWAYS place them on a heat resistant surface after removing. DO NOT touch accessories during or immediately after cooking.
  47. Removable cooking pot can be extremely heavy when full of ingredients. Care should be taken when lifting pot from cooker base.
  48. Cleaning and user maintenance shall not be made by children.
  49. Let the appliance cool for approximately 30 minutes before handling, cleaning, or storing.
  50. To disconnect, turn any control to OFF, then unplug from socket when not in use and before cleaning. Allow to cool before cleaning, disassembly, putting in or taking off parts and for storage
  51. DO NOT clean with metal scouring pads. Pieces can break off the pad and touch electrical parts, creating a risk of electric shock.
  52. Please refer to the Cleaning & Maintenance section for regular maintenance of the appliance.

Take care to avoid coming into contact with a hot surface.

WATER TEST: GETTING STARTED PRESSURE COOKING

Ninja FD400 Series Foodi Deluxe Tendercrisp Pressure Cooker - WATER TEST

NATURAL PRESSURE RELEASE VS . QUICK PRESSURE RELEASE

Natural Pressure Release: When pressure cooking is complete, steam will naturally release from the unit as it cools down. This can take upwards of 20 minutes, depending on the amount of ingredients in the pot. During this time, the unit will switch to Keep Warm mode. Press KEEP WARM if you would like to turn Keep Warm mode off. When natural pressure release is complete, the float valve will drop down.

Quick Pressure Release: Use ONLY if your recipe calls for it. After pressure cooking and the KEEP WARM light comes on, turn the pressure release valve to the VENT position to quickly release the steam. Steam release will be accompanied by an audible hiss. Some steam will remain in the unit after pressure release and will escape when the lid is opened. Lift and tilt it away from you, making sure no condensation drips into the cooker base.

NOTE: At any time during the natural release process, you can switch to quick release by turning the pressure release valve to the VENT position.

PRESSURIZING

As pressure builds in the unit, the control panel will display PRE. Time to pressure varies based on the amount and temperature of ingredients as well as liquid in the pot. For safety, the lid will lock as the unit pressurizes, and it will not unlock until pressure is released. Once the unit has reached full pressure, the cooking cycle will begin and the timer will start counting down.

TROUBLESHOOTING GUIDE

Why is my unit taking so long to come to pressure? How long does it take to
come to pressure?
• Cooking times may vary based on the selected temperature, current temperature
of the cooking pot, and temperature or quantity of the ingredients.
• Check to make sure your silicone ring is fully seated and flush against the lid. If installed
correctly, you should be able to tug lightly on the ring to rotate it.
• Check that the pressure lid is fully locked, and the pressure release valve is in the SEAL
position when pressure cooking.

Why is the time counting down so slowly?
• You may have set hours rather than minutes. When setting time, the display will show
HH:MM and the time will increase/decrease in minute increments.

How can I tell when the unit is pressurizing?
• The display will show PRE and the building animation to indicate the unit is building pressure.
PRE and moving lights are shown on the display screen when using the Pressure
or Steam function .
• This indicates the unit is building pressure or preheating when using STEAM or
PRESSURE. When the unit has finished building pressure, your set cook time will
begin counting down.

There is a lot of steam coming from my unit when using the Steam function .
• It’s normal for steam to release through the pressure release valve during cooking. Leave
the pressure release valve in the VENT position for Steam, Slow Cook, and Sear/Sauté.
Why can’t I take the pressure lid off?
• As a safety feature, the pressure lid will not unlock until the unit is completely
depressurized. Turn the pressure release valve to the VENT position to quick release the
pressurized steam. A quick burst of steam will spurt out of the pressure release valve.
When the steam is completely released, the unit will be ready to open. Turn the pressure
lid counterclockwise, then lift it up and away from you.

Is the pressure release valve supposed to be loose?
• Yes. The pressure release valve’s loose fit is intentional; it enables a quick and easy
transition between SEAL and VENT and helps regulate pressure by releasing small
amounts of steam during cooking to ensure great results. Please make sure it is turned
as far as possible toward the SEAL position when pressure cooking and as far as
possible toward the VENT position when quick releasing.

The unit is hissing and not reaching pressure .
• Make sure the pressure release valve is turned to the SEAL position. If you’ve done this
and still hear a loud hissing noise, it may indicate your silicone seal is not fully in place.
Press START/STOP to stop cooking, VENT as necessary, and remove the pressure lid.
Press down on the silicone ring, ensuring it is fully inserted and lies flat under the ring
rack. Once fully installed, you should be able to tug lightly on the ring to rotate it.

The unit is counting up rather than down .
• The cooking cycle is complete and the unit is in Keep Warm mode.
How long does the unit take to depressurize?
• Quick release is about 2 minutes or less. Natural release can take up to 20 minutes or
more, depending on the type of food and/or the amount of liquid and food in the pot.

“ADD POT” error message appears on display screen .
• Cooking pot is not inside the cooker base. Cooking pot is required for all functions.

“OTHR LID” error message appears on display screen .
• The incorrect lid is installed for your desired cooking function. Install the pressure
lid to use the Pressure, Slow Cook, Yogurt, Steam, or Keep Warm functions.

“SHUT LID” error message appears on display screen .
• The crisping lid is open and needs to be closed for the selected function to start.

“TURN LID” error message appears on display screen .
• The pressure lid is not fully installed. Turn the pressure clockwise until it clicks to use
the Pressure, Slow Cook, Yogurt, Steam, and Keep Warm functions.

“OPEN VENT” error message appears on display screen .
• When set to Slow Cook or Sear/Sauté, and the unit senses pressure building up, this
message indicates the pressure release valve is in the SEAL position.
• Turn the pressure release valve to the VENT position and leave it there for the remainder
of the cooking function.
• If you do not turn the pressure release valve to the VENT position within 5 minutes, the
program will cancel and the unit will shut off.

“ADD WATER” error message appears on display screen when using the Steam function .
• The water level is too low. Add more water to the unit for the function to continue.

“ADD WATR” error message appears on display screen when using the Pressure function .
• Add more liquid to the cooking pot before restarting the pressure cook cycle.
• Make sure the pressure release valve is in the SEAL position.
• Make sure the silicone ring is installed correctly.

“ERR” message appears .
• The unit is not functioning properly. Please contact Customer Service at
1-877-646-5288. So we may better assist you, please register your product online
at registeryourninja.com and have the product on hand when you call.

HELPFUL TIPS

  1. For consistent browning, make sure ingredients are arranged in an even layer on the bottom of the cooking pot with no overlapping. If ingredients are overlapping, make sure to shake half way through the set cook time.
  2. For smaller ingredients that could fall through the deluxe reversible rack, we recommend first wrapping them in a parchment paper or foil pouch.
  3. When switching from pressure cooking to using the crisping lid, we recommend emptying the pot of any remaining liquid for best crisping results.
  4. Use the Keep Warm mode to keep food at a warm, food-safe temperature after cooking. To prevent food from drying out, we recommend keeping the lid closed and using this function just before serving. To reheat food, use the Air Crisp function.
  5. When using a recipe for the Ninja Foodi 6.5 quart in this unit, some additional cooking time, or extra shake of the Cook & Crisp TM Basket may be required.
  6. 6.5 quart pressure recipes like soups, stews, and chilies can be scaled up by 50 percent in the Ninja® Foodi TM Deluxe.
