Ninja 3-In-1 Cooking System

Meet the Ninja 3-in-1 Cooking System.

Ninja 3-In-1 Cooking System

I learned about it when I first heard about a new product called the Nutri Ninja, which is a new single serve juicer capable of blending whole fruits, vegetables and ice into nutrient-complete juices within seconds. Not only does it make nutrient-complete juices, but it also can make sauces, dressings, dips, purees and frozen desserts. While I was on the Ninja Kitchen site checking out the Nutri Ninja I stumbled across the 3-in-1 Cooking System and fell in love with the product concept. Well, now I’m in love with the product itself.

That cooking system right there is (pardon my french) badass! It can do all sorts of things! It’s like having at least three appliances – stovetop, oven and slow cooker – all in one. The stovetop can be  set to cook on low, medium or high. The smaller knob is what sets the oven temp if you’re using oven mode as well as sets the kitchen timer. The oven temp can be set between 250 and 425 degrees f. I haven’t used the slow cooker mode yet but did see that it has low, high and buffet settings as well as an auto keep warm feature. One of the coolest things about this system is that you can switch between the three modes by just turning one big knob. There’s no need to change pans or anything.

This system is more convenient than the three appliances I mentioned because of how fast it cooks and how easy it is to use. That’s because the Ninja 3-In-1 Cooking System uses an advanced steam technology that some restaurants use, which is what enables it to prepare meals so much faster. The system heats from the bottom and the sides at the same time. The system creates a very hot steam that makes for juicier meals that are also healthier because they have less fat.

I have been using the 3-in-1 Cooking System every night for over a week. Every night it manages to surprise me. Meals have been so easy to make with this system. First of all, it’s summer. I don’t like to heat up the kitchen during the summer, so don’t rush to turn on the oven or stove. No need for either with this.

The Ninja 3-In-1 Cooking System is super easy to use. Just take it out of the box and you’re ready to use it. The first night I used the Ninja cooking system I used a recipe in the little cookbook that comes with the system, but modified it. The recipe was for spaghetti and meatballs. I made spaghetti and meatballs but made it in an alfredo sauce. Here’s how I made it.

Ninja 3-In-1 Cooking System recipe


  • 1 lb spaghetti, broken in half
  • 1x 28 oz jar pasta sauce (I subbed with 2 jars alfredo sauce)
  • 1x 24 oz package frozen meatballs
  • 4 cups water


Pour the water into the pot.

Place spaghetti, sauce and meatballs into the pot.

Using the oven setting set the cooking system to 300 degrees f.

Cover and cook for 25 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Serve immediately.

The dish was delicious. My pasta was exactly the way I like it, a tiny bit softer then al dente. I couldn’t believe how fast it worked. For this particular dish I probably would have taken about the same amount of time to make it on the stove. But by using this my kitchen wasn’t full of heat and steam from using the stove and oven. And I didn’t have multiple pots to wash, I only had one. Oh by the way. The nonstick pan in the Ninja 3-In-1 Cooking System is really easy to clean!

This baby rocks, and it rocks hard! I am becoming obsessed with it. Stay tuned, I’ll be sharing some of the dishes I’ve come up with for the next several days. They include Chicken and pasta, Monterey Chicken and potatoes, Chicken Broccoli and Cavatelli, Salisbury Steak, and London Broil and potatoes.

I bet you’ll be as surprised as I was at how capable this is and want one for yourself!

Wish I had brought one camping–it would have so simplified things for meals after long times out and about. I love pulled pork, corn, baked potatoes and would plan accordingly.
