Ninja Cooking System {Review and Giveaway}

It is no secret that I am passionate about my slow cooker.

And it's okay if you swap the term "Semi-Obsessed" for "Passionate."

I love everything about slow cookers: they are simple to use, the perfect kitchen appliance for busy families, and they are a cinch to clean up. If you've been 'round these parts, you've probably seen my many slow cooker recipes, and heard about my general love for this every day kitchen appliance.

So you won't be surprised that when I was invited to a demonstration of the new Ninja Cooking System a few weeks ago, I couldn't say yes fast enough. Me and a few other lovely Philly area bloggers met up at the Reading Terminal Market with the folks from 360PR, my slow cooking hero Stephanie O'Dea and Ninja Cooking for a night of slow cooking.

The night was fantastic. I was impressed by the actual appliance: sleek appearance, ease of use and simple to clean. Essentially, the Ninja Cooking System is like having a stovetop, range and slow cooker all in one appliance. It allows users to cook in healthier ways, with less fats and the ability to steam cook. The recipe book that comes with Ninja System was chock full o' recipes.

Also? It makes you want to go like this ALL. DAY. LONG:

The food turned out great, and I was excited that I would have one shipped to me to review myself.

Not long after the event, my shipment came, in all of it's glory:

By this point, I could not contain my excitement.

SQUEE! And hiiiiiiiYAH!
I tried to decide what would be my inaugural meal in the Ninja Cooking System. I decided to test drive several features, so I chose the Savory and Sweet Roast from Fix It and Forget It. The recipe calls for browning the roast in a pan before putting it into the slow cooker to roast. I usually despise having to dirty more pans than I have to, but browning the meat really adds a great depth of flavor.  Luckily, I can do the browning AND the slow cooking all in the Ninja.


Ready for slow cookin'

The finished product: PERFECTION.

PERFECTION! We served it alongside mashed potatoes and broccoli. 

This is a DREAM appliance to have for the holidays - it's like having a second oven. Or stove. Or slow cooker.

What? What did you say? Perhaps you'd like one for the holidays?
