Ninja AF161 Max XL 5.5QT Air Fryer Review

Ninja AF161 Max XL is an air fryer with 5.5 quart cooking basket which is large enough to cook for 4-5 persons at a time.


Ninja AF161 Max XL cooks really well. Everything comes out tasting very delicious and meals like chicken wings, french fries and others come out crispy. Meat is tender and juicy on the inside. It’s really amazing how well the food tastes considering it’s also healthy as you use only little amounts of oil or none at all.

Does the food taste as good as when it’s deep fried in oil? Honestly, this comes down to personal preference. Chicken or French Fries taste different when air fried instead of deep fried. If you love the flavor that deep frying gives to the meals then that’s what you would probably prefer however air fried food still tastes really good and is a lot more healthier.

Another benefit of Ninja AF161 Max XL is that available temperature range is wider than most other air fryers offer at this price point. With Ninja AF161 Max XL you can cook in temperatures ranging from 105°F to 450°F, whereas most other air fryers only do 180°F to 400°F.

To make cooking simpler it even has 7 cooking programs: Max Crisp, Air Fry, Air Roast, Air Broil, Bake, Reheat and Dehydrate.


Ninja AF161 Max XL air fryer is equipped with LCD display and touch-sensitive buttons. Control panel is quite simple and therefore easy to use.


The ceramic cooking basket has nonstick coating applied to it and is dishwasher safe.


Ninja AF161 Max XL is better than most air fryers. It makes cooking simple and healthy and if that doesn’t sound good enough the food also comes out delicious. Does every home need air fryer? No, but if you think you might like to own one the chances are you will love it.
