Multicookers like this one are great for RVs, small apartments or anywhere with limited kitchen space.


I'm suffering from appliance overload. I have an air fryer, an Instant Pot and a slow-cooker -- all fairly large items, all a bit overwhelming to my fairly small kitchen. If only I could mash those machines together into one super multicooker thing. And, lo, the Ninja Foodi was born! But $229 for the family-size 6-quart model? Ouch.

Here's a deal that makes it less ouchy: Today only, and while supplies last, Meh has the refurbishedNinja Foodi OP350 6-quart multicooker for $99, plus $5 for shipping. Elsewhere (like at Amazon) it's available refurbished for $165.

Like most pressure cookers, the Foodi can sear and sauté, slow-cook, steam and so on. But it's also an air fryer, meaning after you quick-roast that whole chicken, you can put a crispy finish on it.

But wait, there's more: It's also a dehydrator -- a machine I've resisted buying but always kind of wanted, because who wouldn't want to snack on apple chips, banana chips and other dried goodness?

I'm not sure how this model differs from the OP300 that I wrote about previously; there's no longer any information about either of them on Ninja's website. But that one had pretty stellar user reviews at just about every store.

Although a refurb appliance may not sound too appealing, "this item has been cleaned, disinfected, and professionally restored to working order by a manufacturer-approved vendor," Meh says. It also backs this with a 90-day warranty -- more than enough time, in my humble opinion, to make sure everything is working properly.
