My friend Stephanie O’Dea talked about her love of the Ninja 3-in-1 Cooking System in a presentation at the International Food Bloggers Conference last year and word spread quickly about this wonderful new piece of kitchen equipment. I was fortunate to have Ninja give me my very own system to try out!
If you don’t already know Stephanie, you should! She’s one of my very favorite bloggers and a dear friend. She blogs at stephanieodea.com where you will find her blogs, A Year of Slow Cooking and Totally Together Journal. You’ll also find her giveaway page on her site, run by her skilled “giveaway wrangler” Lisa Irvine. (You’ll definitely want to follow that page!)
Stephanie is also the author of the bestselling cookbook Make It Fast, Cook It Slow; as well as More Make It Fast, Cook It Slow, Plus, Stephanie has a new cookbook, 365 Slow Cooker Suppers. Stephanie’s recipes are terrific for everyone because they work for those who are gluten free as she notes the gluten-free accommodations she makes for her gluten-free family (e.g., “I used Pamela’s Baking Mix.”), but others can use her recipes without following such special guidance.

I have always trusted Stephanie’s opinion on just about everything! But to be honest, my Ninja 3-in-1 Cooking System stayed in the box for a good while. I finally pulled it out at Thanksgiving last year to make Stephanie’s Slow-Cooked Maple Ham (a crowd pleaser for sure and so easy to make!) and then my Special Zesty Turkey Breast (you’ll never go back to regular turkey breast) the next day. I simply used the slow cooker feature—which is only one of the things that Ninja 3-in-1 Cooking System can do. I was impressed and pleased with the results. I love the fact that the cooking time remaining is shown on the digital display. I love the metal pot with the non-stick surface for easy clean-up, and you can’t break it! And you know the old adage about black making everything look smaller. Well, it’s even true with slow cookers! I was skeptical that a “monster” ham would fit in the Ninja, but it did with no problem. Similarly, a large turkey breast fits with ease.
The Ninja 3-in-1 Cooking System can do so much more though! Per the folks at Ninja, “Ninja 3-in-1 Cooking System with Triple Fusion Heat surrounds the meal to cook faster, and juicier for more flavorful results. Three convenient cooking functions bring one pot multi-cooking to a whole new level for endless meal creations that take only minutes to prepare. Steam, Roast & Bake; perform Stovetop Cooking, and Searious® Slow Cook complete family rewarding meals in the large 6-Qt non-stick cooking pot that can accommodate up to a 6-lb chicken or even a 4-lb roast.”
