The Ninja Foodi 10-in-1 XL Pro Air Fry Oven DT201 is a well-thought-out product that provides an excellent cooking performance, regardless of the setting used. The digital controls and readout are all located on the handle, which puts them at eye level and makes them easy to see and read. The appliance also comes with two oven racks that can be used to heat up two 12-inch pizzas at the same time. Additionally, the Ninja can toast nine slices of bread at once and brown them evenly.
The Ninja Foodi 10-in-1 XL Pro Air Fry Oven DT201 is a large countertop appliance that gives you lots of cooking options, including air frying and multiple rack roasting. It works as well as a full-size oven, and is one of the most well-designed toaster ovens we’ve tested, with a unique and easy to use digital control panel on the door handle.
It is a 10-in-1 air oven that has a stainless steel finish. It is available at Amazon for $299 and at Bed Bath & Beyond for $299.
This product is large and boxy, with dimensions of 17 x 20 x 13 inches. The housing is stainless steel, and on the glass door there’s a black plastic handle that contains all of the electronic controls.
The Ninja Foodi XL Pro Air Oven is a 10-in-1 kitchen machine that can fry, roast, bake, broil, air fry, bake, grill, air grill, reheat and toast. It has a generous 12-cup capacity with a clear cover and 7-in adjustable turntable. Its 1500-watt heating element reaches temperatures of up to 450 F.
With an easy to use push-button digital control panel, the oven is simple to program and easy to clean. The oven comes with a manual, which includes recipes and Ninja cooking tips. Baking, broiling a French fry and making a frozen pizza were the top performers for this oven. It also performed satisfactorily when baking bread and cookies.
The oven’s air fry function didn’t do as well for frozen French fries, but was excellent for chicken wings. Roasted chicken came out perfectly every time. Chicken wings were crisp and the skin was not greasy, which was great. The oven’s air grill function, on the other hand, did not work well at all with frozen hamburgers. The burgers were not browned enough and they had a weird taste.
For a frozen pizza, the oven did a good job of reheating it too. The oven works reasonably well when frying breaded chicken and when making homemade French fries. When it comes to frozen French fries though, the oven didn’t produce as crispy of results as we had hoped. It did much better when roasting a whole chicken or air frying Brussels sprouts.
Ninja has come up with a very stylish toaster oven that is the best selling toaster oven on the market. They wanted to create an experience for the people that was so good, no one would want to buy a big oven again. The oven is just big enough for two servings. It is made from chrome and black plastic, giving it a modern and sleek look.
The menu is easy to understand. The oven itself is very intuitive. When you select one of the ten functions, the oven tells you what oven rack to use. The oven is fully automatic. It has a countdown timer, an auto-eject rack, and an auto shut-off function for safety. You cannot over or under cook with this oven. The oven heats up extremely quickly and evenly heats all food. On the bottom of the oven are three rubber feet that keep the oven stable on all surfaces. The glass door is extremely hot when it is cooking, reaching temperatures as high as 282 degrees fahrenheit. However, the handle with the controls stays cool enough to use during cooking.
The LCD readout is on the handle of the oven for easy viewing with a range of 100 degrees fahrenheit to 450 degrees fahrenheit. The buttons are responsive, and the oven is extremely easy to program. Included with the oven are two racks, an air fryer basket, a roast tray, two sheet pans and a removable crumb tray. Also included with the oven is a recipe book that has 50 recipes that are easy to make within minutes.
The only concern we had was that it was fairly loud when it was cooking at 61dba. That is about as loud as an electric toothbrush. None of the parts are coated with a nonstick finish. Although they recommend washing the parts by hand, they say they are dishwasher safe. All parts were fairly easy to clean by hand.
The oven is easy to clean after you are done cooking. All you have to do is take out the crumb tray and wipe down the inside of the oven with a damp cloth. Then air dry the oven and you are done. It couldn’t get any easier.

We compared and reviewed dozens of small toaster ovens and found that the Ninja Foodi XL Pro Air Oven DT201 was the best toaster oven. The Ninja scored well in every category, but especially earned top marks for its innovation, unique design, and overall usefulness. At 17 x 20 x 13 inches it will take up a good chunk of counter space in your kitchen, but if you’re looking for an all-in-one toaster oven, this is the one for you.
The Ninja Foodi XL Pro Air Oven DT201 is highly innovative, and it’s designed to make cooking as easy as possible. It has a floating rack that allows you to cook multiple food items at once, which is a feature that no other toaster oven we tested has. This makes cooking for a family easy, as you can bake several things all at once. The appliance also comes with air fryer functionality, which means it functions as a convection oven, toaster oven, and air fryer in one.
Although the Ninja Foodi XL Pro Air Oven DT201 is a great all-around toaster oven, it struggled with chicken wings. A previous version of this model had trouble cooking chicken wings, but Ninja fixed the issue in the newest version of this product which we tested. It’s still not quite as good as our winner, but overall it’s an incredibly versatile appliance that can handle most cooking activities with ease.
The Breville Smart Oven Air Fryer Pro is our runner up because it offers incredible functionality in a small space. It’s one of the few toaster ovens we tested that functions as both a traditional oven and an air fryer. The air fryer function allows you to use less oil than usual when cooking food, which makes it a healthy alternative to using more traditional methods to cook your food. This Breville model performed well in every category except for toast and chicken wings, where it performed worse than our top pick from Ninja Chef. However, it costs $100 less than the Ninja and almost $100 less than our top pick from Cuisinart. Because of this price difference it’s worth considering if you’re on a tight budget.
We hope that this review has been helpful for you!
