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.
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.
