Currys has a new Ninja cooker in stock - a device that combines air frying with nine other functions.

The Ninja Speedi Rapid Cooker has 10 functions, from steaming and baking to air frying and even dehydrating, so you don’t need to invest in a multitude of specialist kitchen appliances. It can also be used as a convection oven to create healthy meals in 15 minutes.

A Currys spokesman said: "The Ninja Speedi Rapid Cooker is incredibly easy to use and, if you have to work in a small kitchen, give you the freedom to experiment without requiring multiple appliances. This is seen as a jack-of-all-trades appliance."

The Ninja device is retaling for £249.

An air fryer is a kitchen appliance that uses hot air circulation to cook food. It is a compact, countertop device that can provide a healthier alternative to traditional frying methods. Air fryers work by circulating hot air around the food at high speeds, creating a crispy and golden texture similar to deep frying, but with significantly less oil or even no oil at all.

The basic components of an air fryer include a heating element, a fan, and a cooking chamber. The heating element produces the heat, which is then circulated by the fan throughout the cooking chamber. The hot air rapidly cooks the food, creating a crispy exterior while maintaining the moistness inside.

Air fryers are versatile and can be used to cook a variety of foods such as French fries, chicken wings, vegetables, and even desserts like donuts or apple fritters. Some air fryers come with additional features like temperature control, pre-programmed cooking settings, and a timer to make the cooking process more convenient.

One of the main advantages of using an air fryer is that it requires significantly less oil compared to traditional deep frying methods. This can result in lower fat content and fewer calories in the cooked food. Additionally, air fryers are generally faster than conventional ovens, and they produce less heat, making them more energy-efficient and suitable for small kitchens.

It's important to note that while air fryers can provide a healthier cooking option for certain foods, the overall nutritional value of the food still depends on the ingredients and the cooking method used.
